Mostly that many on here are saying we would beat the Pats without question.   

I don’t see anyone saying that. It is a interesting though. There offensive line is banged up and it’s very clear they miss gronk. The main I agree with is the colts have a nastiness to them that could help them against that team. They aren’t going to be scared of them. The colts right now are playing in a way that travels well also.

Out of six wins their opponents have only five wins and 4 of them are from the bills. The bills played great against them so I think they are beatable. Their offense does not look great. That’s schedule is really pathetic. Next week they play the jets lol. It really is unfair how bad that schedule is.

How do you set up a tough schedule for a team in the AFC East that never has to play the patriots?

I get it. It just seems even their non division games this year so far have been way to easy. But like noted above they do have some tough games that will test them the second half of the season. The browns have a pretty good defense so that one might be interesting. The jets getting Darnold back this week should make the jets better also.

Everyone talking about how the Patriots haven't played anyone yet, please answer this. Who is the best team in the NFL right now?

I refuse to answer that question because the answer does not fit my narrative.

The Pats?

 

And they can't play themselves?

 

Is this a trick question Supe?  You wascally wabbit.  haha

 

It’s way simpler, actually. I don’t think their schedule matters, they’re the best team in the NFL and it’s pretty obvious. Are there really any other candidates at this point?

The schedule does matter because there is no way to know how good  they are. They just had a stretch of teams with 5 wins and four of those were the bills. They aren’t even playing mediocre teams. They are playing trash teams. They only scored 9 points against the redskins until middle of the third quarter.

Fed up with the fawning over the 2019 Pats. The eye test says they are not the best team. About ten teams would be 6 zip vs their opponents right now. 

 

Brady is finally looking his age. Unfortunately BB can still work his evil magic.

I can make a argument the colts would be 6-0 against that schedule.

We would be IMO. 5-1 at worse. 

Yeah the bills game would be a ?. Their defense is so good. Their offense just needs to improve. Depends where the game was played.

I was thinking the same thing, maybe Pittsburgh because they had Ben. Pitt played at foxboro though so that game would've been at Indy and Pitt looks bad.

Don't be too hard on them.  We're all on a bit of a victory rush right now, and it's a lot easier to imagine us beating superior competition when we've just done it.

 

There's no real need to  bring these guys down unless we absolutely have to.  After all we've come through what might be the toughest part of our schedule with a winning record.  That takes doing.  Plenty of reasons for fans to be confident right now.

I see your point.

 

The Chiefs were probably everyones' pick for the team with the best chance to dethrone the Pats, but with the way the Colts just embarrassed KC in Arrowhead, it's hard to think of a team that the Pats couldn't beat right now.  Ugh, I don't like the turn this thread has taken.  :puke:

 

Can we go back to talking about the Colts-Chiefs game?  :beg:

After the pats have that hard stretch then we can discuss how good they really are. What I have seen from their offense I think they can be beat by a lot of teams. Get pressure on Brady with that bad oline and run the ball and you have a chance. There is probably 4 or 5 teams in the AFC I could see beating them on any given Sunday.

Here is my take away from this thread. 

 

My how times have changed from 7 days ago post Raiders loss. 

 

Regarding the Pats - I’ve seen this movie before. Lose a game or two early in the year, get better and then come January look out. Except this time they have not lost. And is anyone really going to bet against Brady not figuring it out?

 

I believe the Colts are a good team. Assuming health they have a formula to win games but the season is long and I prefer hot teams at the end of the year. Who knows who will be playing well in 6-8 weeks. 

 

So for me, I am looking forward to the Houston game in a week. Past that, not worrying about too much of anything else.

I have no problem with people talking about whether the Colts can beat the Pats. I'm a firm believer in "any given Sunday," within reason. 

 

I jumped in because I think people are being dismissive of how good the Pats really are. I assume that's a rationalization of some kind.

It probably is.  That, and no one wants to give up before the fight even starts.  That said the last team I'd trash talk is the Patriots.  They can and WILL prove you wrong lol

BB would stack the box and force Brissett to beat them throwing the football. 

 

 

Which is what you are going to see more and more teams start to do until Jacoby can make them pay for it.

The 49ers duh (note that is heavy sarcasm, in all seriousness I’d agree it’s the Pats as much as I hate them.)

Top team in the NFC with GB and NO close behind. That being said, there’s like 6 teams in the NFC that you can make the argument are the best.

I think the 49rs are tops in the NFC.   They are solid at every position.  

They have 5 1st round picks on the D-line in Bosa, Ford, DeForest Buckner, Arik Armstead, and Solomon Thomas.

I've never been impressed with Armstead, and Thomas has been a disappointment so far. But put all those guys together and that DL is nasty.

I feel like the Saints will be the best team when Brees gets back. But the NFC west has 3 good teams that are hard to beat. Rams should get back on track with wins the next 3 weeks.

If Ballard brings Sanu to the team I'll be prepared to say we can hang with anyone except for maybe the patriots

I've always been impressed with Sanu too IGjji. The guy just knows how to consistently get open & he's always had very good hands. I'd be thrilled if our GM landed him. When you're good in Cincy, you'll succeed anywhere man.

 

He'd look pretty sweet with a :colts:on his helmet too. 

 

Will it ever happen? Who knows, but it's a nice dream anyway.

Class is the one thing the pats do not have. 

haha Even though I have never meet you face to face Lolly, I can just picture you saying that with such sarcastic contempt...You know, like when a telemarketer calls you, & you figure let's mess with this s-c-h-m-u-c-k for awhile. Besides, they deserve it & just like Carnegie Hall--Practice makes perfect right? LOL!

As a former telemarketer, let me just say that the times the customer decides to mess with us can be the highlight of a very dull day of work.  we can't show it on the phone or we get in trouble, but a break from the monotony of script reading and canned answers can be very enjoyable.

 

A good customer trolling can be break room fodder for days.

 

Anywho, glad I left.  Rather than being bored to tears and depressed at work, I can now be bored to tears, depressed, broke and unemployed instead.

 

Ain't life great?

The funy thing is that the 2 teams making the most obvious attempts to do that were the Falcons and the Raiders -- Jacoby's 2 best throwing games.

    • Dolphins r in a rebuild.  They will b going after one in the draft.  No sense in drafting a 31 year old qb who mayb 34 when the Dolphins start competing. Now him to the Bears makes sense
    • I loved Campbell.  He was probably the most raw coming out of college.  I think they were looking to the future when they picked him.  Injuries have stunted his growth and  contribution to the team.
    • You've got 2 backs, Mack and Hines, that have actual roles, and Wilkins that I'm not actually sure why he exists and I'm not sure he is either.   Mack and Wilkins have skillsets that are too similar.  You need a RB2 that can give you a different look to keep defenses guessing.  A good stable of backs would have Mack or Wilkins trying to run patiently  and a downhill runner to bum rush the gap and catch the defense napping if they get complacent, and would run some 2 back sets to allow the offense to create a shell game and force the D to hedge.   The fact that we don't seem to be capable of using a 2 back set, means that the skillset of our "stable" of backs is fairly limited, or it means that Reich and the OC are both extremely bankrupt for creativity in how to use running backs in an offense.     So I question your first premise right off the bat, and posit that this lack of diversity and/or creativity in the run game is a big reason the running game disappears against disciplined defenses.       Jack Doyle will be pleased to know he's been upgraded to "a few."  Ebron is inconsistent and Allie-Cox is a decent backup.  Doyle himself is solid but not a world-beater.   It's not a bad group, the whole group rounds up to an above average TE unit, but it's only as significant a part of the offense as it is for us this year more or less by default.   Man I really applaud your effort there.  You really put in a good honest try at making our WR situation not look like a complete disaster.   The original plan required everyone to stay healthy and play at about the 75th percentile of their ability.  If you can't see why that's a bit overoptimistic -- to put it mildly -- then I'm afraid there's nothing more I can do to help you.     We got lucky when Pascal came through.  you put these kinds of odds and ends together in the hope that 1 or 2 of them out of the whole group will stick and become solid contributors.  Expecting a stable of spare parts to play like a well oiled machine is an incredible exercise in magical thinking just this side of believing in Narnia.     Agreed.  The offensive line should be a top offensive line and for the most part it is.         The talent is there to not suck.  If not sucking is all you want to accomplish, then sure, the talent is there.  Not sure the talent is there to be a top team in the AFC.  But hey, if you're in on the not-sucking game, then go nuts, enjoy your 7-9 wins every year.  If not, then Ballard needs to do a better job building out the core of this offense -- fewer spare parts, more core components, and if he can't do it we need a better engineer.
    • This. A defensive stud or WR in the first round is going to improve thijs  team more then some QB.
