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.

    • I don't know if this has been discussed anywhere else on this forum but regarding Kelly and others, Reich and Ballard are always harping on competition and position battles to build a stronger team. It seems to me the 2 weakest areas on this team are the 2 they haven't allowed any competition, qb and kicker. Just an observation. I can't complain about being 6-6, I thought we'd go 11-5 or 10-6, just couldn't get it done in key moments of some games(the qb and kicker really let us down at times). It's not over yet though, if we can win out we still have a chance at the post season.
    • It was definitely not a good story ending for the underdogs, or a triumphant tale like Rudy, that's for darn sure..... All kids should have a similar experience though lol... It's a welcome to reality moment.    Finding tape on guys is much much easier that it used to be. I'm definitely no expert though. I'm just someone that prefers stats and film to watching a bunch of brainless TV shows lol.  It's more of something to do around the draft/FA period when there's not football to watch. To me, the more you know, the more interesting the season is. Also the more realistic you are about some guys.
    • To get this back on track. The more I read and hear from so called experts. It would not be shocking that Ballard just continues to build around JB and draft a QB in like round 3-4. You hear Florio say that the Colts are happy and moving forward with JB. Then you see these colts.com post these stats about the offense and JB particularly.    Colts Offense   Fourth in the NFL and second in the AFC in rushing yards (139 per game)   Tied for 10th in the NFL in fewest sacks allowed (24)   Ninth in the NFL in sack percentage allowed (6.14)   Fifth in the NFL in first downs per game (22.2)   Ninth in the NFL in third down conversion percentage (44.23)   Third in the NFL in 3rd-and-short [less than four yards] conversion percentage (72.9)   Fifth in the NFL in 3rd-and-10-plus conversion percentage (26.7)   Seventh in the NFL in fourth down conversion percentage (62.5)   Tied for fifth in the NFL in fourth downs converted (10)   Tied for eighth in the NFL in red zone touchdown scoring percentage (63.64)   Seventh in the NFL in average time of possession (31:26)   Tied for third in the NFL in touchdowns off 10-play drives (13)   Tied for fourth in the NFL in 10-play drives (26)   Second in the NFL in average number of plays on scoring drives (9.00)   Tied for third in the NFL in red zone touchdowns (28)   Tied for third in the NFL in players recording three or more receiving touchdowns (4)   10th in the NFL in PFF offensive rating (75.8)   10th in the NFL in PFF pass blocking rating (74.4)   Second in the NFL in PFF run blocking rating (82.6)   Quarterback Jacoby Brissett   Eighth in the AFC in completion percentage (64.3)   Tied for sixth in the AFC in passing touchdowns (16)   Fifth in the AFC in touchdown percentage (4.9)   Tied for sixth in the AFC in fewest interceptions (6)   Sixth in the AFC in interception percentage (1.8)   Sixth in the AFC in passer rating (93.2)   Sixth in the AFC in third down passer rating (88.7)   Tied for first in the NFL in third-and-one rushing conversion percentage (100)   Tied for fifth in the NFL in rushing touchdowns among quarterbacks (3)   Tied for sixth in the NFL in red zone passing touchdowns (14)   Tied for sixth in the NFL in passing touchdowns within 10-yard line (10)   10th in the NFL among qualified quarterbacks in fumbling grade (62.6)   Seventh in the NFL in undesigned QB scrambles (25)*   Eighth in the NFL in adjusted completion percentage (76.3)*   Tied for fourth in the NFL in fewest interceptions under pressure (1)*   Third in the NFL in completion percentage in clean pocket (75.0)*   Tied for 10th in the NFL in fewest interceptions in clean pocket (5)*   Third in the NFL in adjusted completion percentage in clean pocket (83.0)*   10th in the NFL in passer rating in clean pocket (107.5)*   Fifth in the NFL in play action completion percentage difference (7.0)*   Tied for fourth in the NFL in play action passing touchdowns (7)*   Tied for seventh in the NFL in fewest play action interceptions (1)*   Ninth in the NFL in play action completion percentage (69.3)*   Eighth in the NFL in play action passer rating (110.5)*   Tied for eighth in the NFL in fewest non-play action interceptions (5)*   Third in the NFL in average time in pocket (3.01 seconds)*   Fifth in the NFL in average time to run/scramble (5.61 seconds)*   First in the NFL in fewest percentage of dropbacks with ball held for less than 2.5 seconds (36.7)*   Tied for sixth in the NFL in completion percentage with ball held for less than 2.5 seconds (75.0)*   Ninth in the NFL in passer rating with ball held for less than 2.5 seconds (102.9)*   First in the NFL in dropbacks with ball held for more than 2.5 seconds (63.3)*   10th in the NFL in completion percentage with ball held for more than 2.5 seconds (58.2)*   Tied for seventh in the NFL in fewest interceptions with ball held for more than 2.5 seconds (3)*
    • While I agree he got a bit of a raw deal, and agree he probably works well with FR, I think he's a bit of fool's gold built on one rare year. He'd be an upgrade over JB for sure in FR's system, but I'd rather go young and get a guy to grow long term with. 
    • Yeah, the hooded evil genius just needs to retire and go away lol. It's just unfair to the rest of the league.    Shan gets it now, but I think they'll have a little late fall from grace and end up a 5 in the NFC. The way the schedule plays out, I can see Seattle taking their division.
