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!

    • I thought we’d go 8-8 or 9-7 with JB, the rooks, turmoil of losing a franchise QB. we’re not that far off, even with all the injuries.  Which were many.   I was hoping we’d squeak in the playoffs.   I also thought Frank wanted an offense that put pressure on the D.  I really didnt see the creativity i did last year.  Not gimmicks, But creativity in formations and playcalling.  Perhaps it was due to our losses at WR and TE.  I also was confused by our bi-polar personality when it comes to risk and being aggressive.   I dont think the sky is falling (long-term), but some changes, and perhaps tweaks, are necessary.
    • I did that already either you understand it or you don't 
    • We currently have pick 15--if Tua is still available, would you take a punt and pick him, with the thought he would miss his rookie season?
    • Well, I have not thought the team was bad since Ballard got a year under his belt and hired his own coach. They have had struggles...as any rebuilding does, but the Colts also lost their schemed for QB. Every team gets injuries, but the positions that the Colts have lost to injury are particularly important to the development of a new QB.   Let's just think about what if......   What if the Colts take a high draft pick at QB next year....and the guy faces what JB had to face in the two years he has been a starter. Few would get through and remain as a starter, unaffected career wise by the losses, the scrutiny, and the pressure. Verrrrrry few. Thank the stars that the Colts have a QB that is as tough as Jacoby Brissett is. He is double tough. I would take his toughness against ANY QB coming out in the draft. He may not be that guy, but he is the right guy right now.....and for the forseeable future, until that guy becomes a possibility. Just because there is  a few QB's slotted to go high in the draft, doesn't mean it is the right year to snag one.    In the meantime, keep adding pieces, and manage the cap. When the Colts name is called in the draft, I want them to take the player that they see is a franchise player....regardless of the position. If that is a QB, so be it. But let's not become a struggling franchise that passes on a golden player to grasp for a QB.
    • Depending on a series of decisions we make this off-season I wouldn’t rule out drafting a RB in the 4 rounds.  (I’m assuming by 5 picks you meant 4 rounds?  With 2 picks in R2, that’s the way the math breaks down.)    Just thinking out loud.   I think it’s way too early to rule most things in or out.
