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!

    • That's actually not true. The Pacers have proven they can win without him. They are 33 and 20 without him since he's been a Pacer. Sabonis even has a better defensive rating than Myles does this year AND can actually score and rebound as well. I don't think it's much of coincidence that with Sabonis getting starter minutes he's EASILY shown he's the all around much better player.    The comparison? 4 years in the league(s) and still pretty much the same players they were in college, probably wouldn't get much in a trade for either one, and both are making ~18M this year. It doesn't get any more comparable than that... Myles' and Jacoby's ships have sailed. It's time to move on.
    • I don't know if this topic should be merged with another but it's something I need to get off my chest.  I've been contemplating where everything went off track for us.  And I keep coming back to the Steelers game & JB's injury.  But the more and more I think about it, I think Frank's actions in that game & the following week have cost us this season.   I came to this conclusion when I saw Justin Fields take a very similar shot to his knee in the OSU vs UM game.  OSU's coach put Fields back into the game.  The Buckeyes stabilized & Fields led them to victory that day & since to the playoffs.  I bring this up because it got me thinking about how our coach handled a similar situation.  JB came out & Hoyer threw a TD to Doyle (who was so wide open that JB could have made that throw but Hoyer did make some other good throws so I'm not disparaging his play that day) and Frank never looked back.   They showed him on the sideline and he could truly care less how his starting QB was doing...  It was as if he had been waiting for the moment where he could yank JB & put in a QB that he preferred.  How he handled the next week was more proof.  JB apparently took all the reps because he was healthy enough to play and as the starter wanted to.  But Frank didn't truly want him as the QB. So what does he do? He starts Hoyer, supposedly with minimal practice reps, because he felt that even with minimal reps, Hoyer was better than JB.   Unfortunately, it blew up in his and all Colts fans' faces when Hoyer laid an egg.  When Frank pulled JB for BH our season spiraled down the drain.  I believe that JB beats Pittsburgh and Miami and our season is looking very different despite the kicking woes & injuries & JB's limitations.  We were 5-2 at the time.  You don't make a boneheaded change like that.  You dance with the one that you brought...  The guy that lead us to 5-2 & 2nd in the AFC...   So I've reached the conclusion that Frank doesn't truly want JB as his QB.  And in that case we must move on to another QB next season.  I defended JB because the guy won and his teammates loved him.  But his limitations have worn on me as things have spiraled down the drain.  But he isn't alone in getting the blame.  I'm putting a lot of it on Frank & his decision to not trust his QB that got him to 5-2.     So we'll get a QB in here that he prefers next year but he won't be getting any more free passes from me.  He better win with whomever it is because I just watched him sabotage this season when the AFC was open for the taking.  If Luck said he wanted to come back in the Steelers game would Frank have ignored him & kept JB or whomever was the backup in the game?  Not a chance.  Would he have let Luck take all the reps the following week and then went with the backup?  Not a chance.  He wanted JB out and leapt at the opportunity when it was there.  Unfortunately, all he did was sink our season...
    • You are kidding right?  Talk about a cancer in the locker room, talk about an all about me guy?  If Cam Newton becomes our new QB, I will never watch another down of Colt's football, not that it matters to anyone else.
