Colts vs Steelers

To me, this game depends on if James Connor plays. If he's healthy, we'll probably lose. If not, we'll win.

 

 IMO: Rudolph, Connor, Ju-Ju> Brissett, Mack, Hilton

 

Colts have better O-Line, Steelers have better defense.

 

We need Connor not to play to win IMO.

May the force be with us

It's possbile that we are not really very good.  Most of the numbers other than W-L record point in that direction.

 

Yeah, yeah wins are the only thing that matters, but numbers probably explain why we "Play down".

Something to watch this week. If Desir can’t go that probably puts rock on JU JU. Although this might be a case where Moore can handle JuJu since he isn’t huge like Sutton.

We will be playing in Pittsburgh and there is always home cookin' in those games. Just look at that Miami successful fourth down that got reversed. What a bunch of hooey.

I feel like this game is going to come down to whether or not the Colts can get consistent pressure on Mason. As we all know, pressure and coverage work hand in hand, so........

I think it will come down to how well we can handle the multiple Steelers' defensive fronts and not take unnecessary sacks or turn the ball over. If we do not turn the ball over, we do not make it easy for their young signal caller to score points with easy field position. Let us not make it too easy on Rudolph by just rushing four all the time.

 

On offense, make tough catches knowing the hit is coming, and get the ball out fast with those slants and get the protection calls right. This game will tell us if Brissett can adapt his pre-snap reads fast enough. 

 

The Patriots, to slow down their pass rush, would flank out the TEs and RBs in pass catching roles to test their LBs and get the ball out fast. I would not be opposed to playing multiple TEs and multiple RBs at the same time. Send Hines out in motion, he will be such a mismatch for their LBs and their safeties will mostly be occupied with Hilton and Ebron. If there is a game to use Ebron and Hines more, this game is it. If a LB follows Ebron or Hines, I hope Brissett recognizes the mismatch and goes there right away.

Hopefully moore is just resting that knee. This is a pretty good report. Campbell back at 100% and Lewis practicing full.

Despite the colts having a better record these teams match up pretty evenly. They are ranked close in statistics. We have to protect the ball and not allow them to get any turnovers. They protect Rudolph well allowing very few sacks so will we be able to get pressure.

This is going to be a close game. These two teams are petty even. The difference in the records is the colts have found ways to win close games while the Steelers haven’t. We really need a game where we just come out and dominate on both sides. Not sure this is the game. We have been really good but we aren’t great yet. Steelers only lost by a total of nine points in loses to the Seahawks, ravens, and 49’s. I don’t remember which game  Big Ben hurt his elbow.

I am listening to a Steeler podcast. I like to listen to the opponents before a game. The guy does I don’t know what to make of the colts being 5-2. Lol they are confused just like we are. The Steelers are about as good as we are but the difference has really been we have finished games and they haven’t. That’s the difference between 5-2 and 3-4.

The steelers are a dangerous football team. They could be 6-1 if they won their close games. They have also done something the colts have not and that is beat a team by double digits.

ESPN has this as a pick'em game on their site last I looked. They had the Colts at a 50.1% chance of winning and the Steelers at a 49.9% chance of winning. That is about as even as you can get.

I'm soo nervouse for this one..

I'll form my opinion when I see the final injury report. This will be close though. We sorta need this game in a surprisingly tough AFC South this year.

steelers have 24 sacks and 10 int they are not going to be easy to score on.

Benny Snell has knee surgery and will be out a few weeks.  He has the same injury hooker had. If Conner can’t go that will hurt them. I don’t think their defense is quite as good as the broncos but their offense isn’t inept like Denver. Going to be a tough and interesting game. Teams are pretty evenly matched. Records don’t mean anything. Just like the broncos record didn’t represent that they were not that bad. Good teams win close games. If we can pull this out having a win in arrowhead and Heinz field would be pretty crazy.

Even if he don't play then we get Samuels who is 235 pounds and just as good as Conner. Snell is already out has a procedure on his knee.

At this point, when it comes to predicting how we will perform any given week, I don't apply ANY type of logic or statistics anymore, I just flip a coin haha. We're either going to play good or bad, and I'm not sure the opposition has any to do with that. I feel a dominant display coming. 27-17?

 

What I will say though: even with our erratic play, I have been very proud of the heart we're showing late in games. This is so different from the teams in the past that we saw just completely drop the ball late in games. Culture change!

IY is not practicing again. There is a bad rumor going around I can’t repeat. Just praying it isn’t true. Willis, Moore, and Autry we’re back at practice.

People were calling last week a trap game, if any game is, it is this one because they are better than Denver and at home. Their season is really on the line as well, our's isn't. If they lose they go to 3-5 and have the Ravens in their division. I can't call this one as of now. Have to see the final injury report before doing so.

We can still win the south without  this game, but it will make getting  the second seed tougher  especially  if Baltimore  beats new England

I am hoping we are not going to regret trading for a good WR.

Yep, we missed the boat on E. Sanders.  Our O line needs to pick it up Sunday or it's going to be a miserable game.

San Fran's offense looks way more explosive now and this team was undefeated before the deadline and chose not to stand pat but upgrade their offense.

    • Alot of Jackie Doyle Supporters. interesting. At least we got another TE though. To add with Mo Allie-Cox.
    • We have to hope our defense stays solid, not giving up big plays.  Our offense will hold their own with our offensive firepower.  Then, we'll be in the Big Dance.  Go Colts.
    • KC actually won TOP in the SB. 33:13 - 26:47 almost 7 minutes.   49ers led by 10pts until 6 minutes left in the game.    They also gave up 100yds to D Williams. Stopping the run was the second part of that formula I was talking about.   When playing a high flying opponent. TOP is definitely the formula you want to go with. Keep them off the field as much as possible.   SF wasn't able to win the TOP like they wanted to, and were still in position to win the SB. I agree they need more balance. Saying that I believe the Colts will have great balance when needed.   They choked down the stretch.   If we want to beat KC, we better win the TOP. That's all I know. TOP is the winning recipe when playing high flying teams. That doesn't mean you have to pound the ball to control the clock. Rivers is actually one of the best at using up the clock, even while running a balance O.   Really wasn't even any reason to clap back in the first place though. I was just making a simple point, as to why we could still get there if we have to go on the road.
    • Look at my first post about Pascal.   I like the guy.   Said so in my first post.   I’m glad we have him.   Said that too.   And yes, using him as a decoy in play action is a very good idea!   He’s known for his excellent blocking on running plays.       I’m not a Pascal hater.   I really do like the guy.   Glad he’s a Colt.  
    • Yeah, not to sure what he is talking about.   Thread literally about 2 teams making the SB.   He gives his reason for wanting HFA, because he is afraid of going on the road.   I give a reason why I think we travel well and can still get there.   He brings up a team that: 1. Made the SB(using our style) 2. Had HFA and didn't play a road game.(his biggest worry) 3.SB is neutral location, both teams travel(when they lost)   Idk?
