This game has to be a statement game.

Recommended Posts

The Colts have to come out and make a statement today that they have what it takes to make a playoff run without Andrew. The Colts overall have been acceptable, but if you lose today you lose a little faith from the fans this year. 

 

Come out, and punch these guys in the jaw. 

 

Ebron needs to show up and forget about Andrew Luck.

Meh. Most on here were predicting a winless season. Most were saying we’d be lucky to be 2-2 WITH luck playing. 

 

That said, we just need to win. The rest will fall into place on its own

A win today would show me a lot. Beating a good team in your division is always huge. If we lose for some reason it will be a downer but our schedule is favorable over the next month so it will not be a death sentence if we lose today.

This is a bad matchup for us. The Texans are good against the run, and we can't win a passing matchup Vs the Texans if it comes down to that with Moore, Hooker, and possibly Desir out. I hate to be negative, but I don't see how we win this game.

Happy to eat crow. Reich coached well and we played well today.

Tastiest crow you'll ever eat.  Enjoy!  :D:D:D

 

(I thought we were at a disadvantage too.  HUGE praise for the D that played way better than they "should" have).

I'd rather be wrong in predicting a win, that right in predicting a loss.

Well, we won a passing game vs. Watson and co.   And, you just witnessed how they win this game so..... Keep doubting going forward, it's working this far!

Yes sir. The Colts win. And its the way the team won. Key players return. Oline did their job, Coaching was as good as I've ever seen. JB was great, defense including Desir stood up. This was an amazing game to watch.

Not sure why you quoted me...I wasn’t singling Jared out at all.  Personally, I can understand anyone who was a little apprehensive about today’s game initially.  We all have to eat some crow at some point.  Whenever I do I take mine with some Texas Pete or Sweet Baby Ray’s.

Brissett is the man moving forward, he proved it today. 326, 4 TD's, no INT's and we beat Houston on top of it. 1st place in the South. Our run game struggled today and it was Brissett that carried us with accurate big throw after accurate big throw. I looked at our schedule and I do not see us losing for a while. If anyone doubts Brissett after today than they need bifocals laugh laughing GIF, now to the Draft, can we discuss what defensive player we are going to draft instead of drafting some college dude at QB that will crap his pants at the sight of playing in the NFL. Lets put Chad Kelly to bed too, please lets do at least that haha

We were down hooker and Moore on d.. and we matched them pretty well. Obviously Hopkins can't be held down by anyone but the Patriots. But we did well!!

Hooker may be back next week? Not sure. That will help.

This is so great, I talked the talk with Brissett before this game so I had to walk the walk. lmao  Brissett played the best game of his career. Thank you #7 for not making me look bad and making the haters look so bad.

The fact we did that without hooker and Moore was so impeessive. That means defense can only get better. I was reading some tweets we used Desir in the slot a little and even the way they used Sheard so far out wide  it looked like he was even in the slot. Eberflus has them coming together.

 

Anyone want to see Nelson as a fullback more and get a TD. Lol

When we play Pitt, I hate them so much haha . If we were up big and I was coaching I would put in Nelson at FB and run it in for a TD :funny:

I am so happy with this team. They are built to win so many different ways. They can win balanced, with the run, or the pass. The D can stop the run and play the pass. Of course they're not perfect but this young  team has me fired up.

Huge statement today. Texans came in as one of the best in third down. They were 4-12. Also one of the best red zone teams. Defense played so well.

With the Mahomes injury I think there is a argument that can be made now the colts are the second best team in the AFC.

Great win. Texans fans were straight up disrespecting us (still are, saying refs gave us the game somehow). If JB continues to grow and the defense sticks with their ability to get serious pressure rushing four, we have a real shot at going deep in the playoffs. I said before the season after Luck retired that we’d go 9-7. Double digit wins are a very real possibility at this point which is all the more impressive and speaks volumes about Reich.

 

Really looking at that Chargers game wishing we had that one back now.

This was a great win, and we did it without some key guys...

 

The only thing I will say is we really benefitted from their undisciplined play. Same goes for the Chiefs. We won’t always get bailed out by flags, not that it was the only reason we won. It did help though.

Something about the colts brings out other teams undisciplined play.

KC fans were disrespecting us too. Some Colts fans in here said JB was trash basically and wanted couch crasher Chad Kelly as their QB lmao . It is what it is. I am glad we have the GM, Coach, and QB we have. So far so good.

I have stuck up for JB all along and always said he was above average. After today I believe in him 100% now. Before today I was nervous, now I know.

    • Here is another one. This is from July.    
    • Yup, it's been bad. It's not even worth taking the time to pull all-22 at this point. Those that deny the problem (missing wide open WRs) are simply disingenuous and clearly ride-or-die at this point. We've played 3 very bad passing Ds three weeks in a row, and there's simply no excuse for not hitting those guys. 
    • *What I meant was that I much rather prefer CJ or LW.
    • TY won't fetch a ton given his injury history the last two years. He'd absolutely get a contract from a lot of teams, but teams won't be knocking down the door to give up a 1R pick for him right now. And especially with this year's WR class.
    • I've said there are several kinds of leadership..... I can provide a pretty good breakdown of multiple seminars if you'd like, or the key ingredients from a few proven sports "leaders", but you'd just try to pull it apart like above lol and it would be a waste of time.   In short, some lead by performing, some lead by work habits, some lead by taking on a governing type persona (vocal about accountability), plus others, etc. etc.., and many a combination. And there are personality types within those leadership types. Some are just charismatic, some are ballers, some are authoritarians, some are Laissez-faire, and many more.... And there are leaders in every unit or position group.    Not sure what type of leadership JB provides, but we've heard he's vocal. I'd bet he has good work habits too. What we know is in a lot of games, he's not providing leadership by performance, which in sport is just as important. He may be leading by example in some ways in practice and in the locker room, but failing on the field at times. And as you know in sports, respect must be earned, and some players (personality types) don't give it (respect) unless the performance is there. And then there's experience and age....  All those things go together to make a "leader"...    And we all know teams take on identities, and a lot of time that identity comes from one side of the ball or one unit. Ray Lewis was the unquestioned leader and identity of the Ravens for many years and he wasn't a QB.   In terms of all things Colts, doubt the D needs much from him, so lets talk O.... I really doubt the OL needs much of anything from JB. Nelson and AC certainly don't. Nelson has been an alpha his entire life, was early on at ND, and is probably more of an external team O identity than JB currently. I'll take his NJ-esque, sumo looking, Taekwondo doing, A$$-kicking style and identity any day. He's not letting any one in the OL unit slack or go half speed. Doubt the RBs need a lot from JB.   The WRs, they probably need more than anyone. And honestly how do you think they view JB when they are working very hard to get open, are running wide open, yet JB fails to see them or are unwilling to throw it to them? How much respect do you give to a guy who probably preaches "do your job" to everyone, yet makes it hard for them to do their job.   In short, give me a guy that performs. Most successful QBs in college have a level of leadership quality or they wouldn't have done well leading their colleges. And... Those that weren't ideal leaders in college, but still did well (like Kelly), only prove you don't need it to be QB.    And finally, bottom line, right now the whole "leadership" conversation, regardless of importance, is being used as a deflection from talking about his deficiencies, and a reason not to upgrade/improve...
