Looking Ahead

Recommended Posts

Great game today, statement made.  Assuming the team stays fairly healthy, there is NO reason this team can't get to 8-2.  3 of the next 4 are at home, and the away game is at the Steelers who are currently rolling out their #3 QB.  Don't know where they will be then but if this team continues to play like it is I like their chances either way there.  These next 4 teams have 7 wins combined.  SEVEN.  Again, no excuses really unless everybody ends up in the MedCheck.  Hopefully they can keep this train rolling and gain a little distance between them and the Texans before we have to go down there.  Texans have it a little bit tougher as they have a better than advertised Raider team and then have to go to Baltimore.  They also have their bye mixed in there.  Lets go Colts!  Keep this momentum train rolling!

1-0. One week at a time. Get wins and the test will fall into place

I wouldn't belly up on 8 and 2 quite yet.  While Denver cant seem to protect Flacco their running backs could give us hell.

 

Dolphins yeah probably.

 

Even though Steelers are banged up we have struggled against them so that will be a tough game.

 

And Jacksonville always gives us hell. Look at the Cody Kessler game from last season.

 

I'd love to be 7 and 3 from that stretch and hopefully not 6 and 4.

I'm not too worried about the team looking ahead.... I think that loss to Oakland was a wake up call.

We are in the drivers seat now. We have a QB that is Above Average to Good, a defense that is playing Good, a HeadCoach who is Good, and a Great O.Line. We will smack Denver around :funny:

If they can run it for their next 4, all of which they’ll likely be favorited in, they’d be 8-2 heading into Houston for the rematch.  IF they are indeed 8-2 and IF the then beat Houston, thus hitting the 9-2 mark, Colts win the division and are primed for first round bye.

we just need to win the next 3 to be in good position for the last 7 game stretch (which will be difficult). I can't really see beyond Miami.

If we lose to Denver that will probably go down as the most pathetic loss of the season to date Pittsburgh I wouldn't be surprised if we lose but I still could see a possible win too they are a mixed bag this year.

The Broncos couldn't run on Kansas City.  They had 71 yards total rushing from their 2 RBs.

 

The same Kansas City that the Colts shredded.

Oh c'mon people!  Have some fun.  1-0 is for the TEAM.  I don't play for the Colts and neither do any of you.  Live a little.  If the scenario doesn't happen the sun will still come up.  They're in better shape than I would have thought the night AL retired.

Yea, we easily could've beaten SD (we win that game if not for Vinny's kicking blunders) and we got outplayed by OAK, but that's a game we should've also won.


We're 4-2 atop the AFC South, could easily be 6-0 (IMO).

 

If we can take care of our division games, we should be back in the playoffs at the very least.

We haven't had an easy or dominate win yet so thrashing a weak team is the next step in this Colts team proving itself. We'll get the chance to do that both at home and on the road. I like our chances to prove that this Colts team  can be relied on to do just that.

AL? You mean 12?

The Colts are not going to blow anyone out but according to ESPN they have the second easiest schedule behind Buffalo. We all know "on any given day" so one game at a time.

I’m thinking about our Ohio State alumni group. Lewis, Campbell and Hooker. 

 

We we could use all of them back, I’m sure there Saturday afternoon college game get togethers are really fun. I truly hope they are all over the Buckeye injury curse!

    • Had Funchess been practing? I thought he had to practice for two weeks before being able to come back?
    • Oh you were right on that one.  I still won, but I missed out on having highest score of the week by .32 points.  Our league pays out for highest weekly scores. 
    • I think there's a danger with any position of getting enamoured with the 40 time, I'd put 3 cone over it certainly. However, as always never go by just one metric, and never put metrics over film.    For all that was written about him being a below average athlete, if you compare  him to some of the 'good' SS's in the league he matches up pretty well:   Willis 4.55s (40)/7.15s (3 Cone) Collins 4.53s (40)/7.53s (3 Cone) Chancellor 4.69s (40)/7.36s (3 Cone) Jones  4.51s (40)/7.43s (3 Cone)  Adams  4.56s (40)/6.96s (3 Cone)    etc etc... 
    • CeeDee Lamb would be the dream pick imo. Reminds me a lot of Hopkins/Thomas, good size, great route runner and hands. Means he could take on a high volume of targets in the short/intermediate range, something I think Frank Reich badly needs (that's why he was high on signing Funchess). Put him on the boundary opposite Hilton and Campbell in the slot and we have serious options. Not as high on Ruggs when we already have Hilton.   I like Mack as a lead back, but not 25 carries a game. I would prefer a legit RB2 to take some of that load off him, preferably a RB to compliments his game, so a heavier, more physical, north/south RB. This draft has options in the mid round.
    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
