They're playing at home(Colts) this should be a sure thing, I know, I know it's any given Sunday.  But heck, the Dolphins are talent less team now, after farming out some of their key players.  Colts by 10.  Colts 27 - Dolphins 17.

Idk. fitz is streaky. Hopefully  we get the bad fitz

EVERY game has ended within 7 points this year. 

 

Colts may lose another close one with the Dolphins feeling confident about their win last week. Fitz might have a field day with the Colts defense.

 

Colts may come out with something to prove. However they have played to every one of their opponents this year.

 

Dolphins 35

Colts 31

 

Colts lose

Vinny misses another FG or PAT

Everyone goes crazy.

I don’t know, with us missing nearly 35 percent of our starters on Offense including the QB, odds aren’t in our favor. This could be a toss up

Lots of starters out, and a lot of rookies and 2nd/3rd-year guys not playing up to the levels where they were drafted.

A loss would be disastrous that's all I know

This game is definitely an important one.  Has the potential to be a real back breaker or a feel good "get right game".  I'm not confident given what I've seen the past couple weeks.  After 2 signature wins I'm shocked how little saying the Colts "should win" holds up after just a 2 weeks. 

 

They have to put it on the field.

 

The games we've dropped, with the possible exception of Oakland, have been self inflicted and all games have been decided by 1 score.

 

This one will show us pretty clearly where this young team is.  Win or lose (I'm not sure it ultimately matters)  this one feels like a "they are who we thought they were" kind of game.  Identity is on the line.

 

Are we the team that went toe to toe with 2 of the better teams in the conference or are we the guys that played themselves to 1-1 on the deteriorating leg of vinny against 2 of the more anemic offenses in the league?  Miami is just bad enough to provide us with a pretty clear answer.

The Dolphins are missing Preston Williams(their best offensive player) to ACL tear, and Mark Walton to a suspension. It will be funny to see a guy like Myles Gaskin( 7th round pick) try to run the football. Someone I don't think would make the roster of 20 NFL teams. Mike Gesiki and Davante Parker could really see some action today, but nothing too special. Flores will look to capitalize on Rock not playing well lately.

We have about 10 players who would be their best player

      Didn't mean to end it right there. Their D line is headed by some guy named Sam

(I think) Christian Wilkins and John Jenkins , guys that not many people can even name other than the 13th overall pick. The only competent player in their secondary is Xavien Howard but even he is very inconsistent and loses matchups all the time. This is truly one of the worst teams I've ever seen on paper in NFL history, This game looks like an obvious blow out considering the lack of talent on the dolphins, but I don't think it will considering our recent history. 

 

22-17 Colts 

Hoyer 190 yards 1 TD 2 INT

Mack 160 yards 2 TD

Fitzpatrick 220 yards 1 TD 1 INT

Myles Gaskin just has to catch checkdowns and Eberflus would allow it, hands down. 

 

I have the same feeling most here have, that we win a close game vs the Dolphins.

This should be a blow out. Dolphins can’t stop the run and they are not a good offensive team. They lost their WR to a injury and RB to a suspension. Unless the colts defense just flat craps the bed this should be a easy game. Mack should have a field day.  So unless we do like we did against Pitt this shouldn’t even be a game. It would be funny if hoyer starts and they call up Kelly and Kelly actually gets playing time because it turns into a blow out.

Howard got hurt during the Steelers game. He won’t play.

You can't ever dismiss a RB no matter where they are drafted.   Gaskin has size and is extremely fast.  Maybe we shut him down, but maybe he gashes the Colts defense.  

He also has a good name :thmup:

 

Gaskin's tough running and track speed (he won a Washington high school state title in the 100 meters) have made him an ultra-productive player for the Huskies. The former two-time All-State running back garnered honors in his first year on campus, including Freshman All-American and honorable mention All-Pac-12 notice, as well as being named the team's Most Outstanding Offensive Player. In 13 games (six starts), Gaskin ran 227 times for 1,302 yards (5.7 average) and 14 touchdowns. He was a first-team all-conference selection in 2016 (237-1,373-5.8, 10 TD rushing; 19-137-7.2, one TD receiving) and second-team selection as a junior (222-1,380-6.2, 21 TD rushing; 19-232-12.2, three TD receiving.) The workhorse set school career records with 41 rushing touchdowns and 45 total scores in 2017, and was the team's Most Outstanding Offensive Player again. In 2018, Gaskin became UW's career rushing leader (third in conference history) and the first Pac-12 back to rush for more than 1,000 yards in four straight years, garnering second-team All-Pac 12 accolades by rushing for 1,268 yards and 12 touchdowns on 259 totes (4.9 average). He also caught 21 passes for 77 yards (3.7 average) and a score and returned four kickoffs for 74 yards (18.5 average).

Don't you get weary of being so confident that the Colts will play so well?

 

Nothing the Colts have done this season leans towards this being an easy blowout.  They should win, but they may also lose this game.  Close games can turn out going either way.  Turnovers can help a bad team beat a good team.  

I suppose I have to make a prediction:

Colts 23

Dolphins 20

Notice I said should be a blowout not that it will. Offensive injuries might even out the playing field some.

If we don't beat these guys that would be by a wide margin the most embarrassing loss of the season to date.Last week other than some of the mistakes we made was a screw job.

I'm expecting a close game until we prove otherwise. The kicking game will once again be very crucial. It seems like Vinny's been (slightly) better at Lucas Oil than on the road, at least I think so without looking at the numbers. This could very well end up being decided by FG's and PAT's.

No chance that happens. Not with how our OL has been playing lately. 

nah... Dolphins DL isn't near Pitt or Denver. No one near a Watt, Heyward, or Miller. They're 3rd to last in sacks, and bottom 5 in rush D.

 

All this talk about our OL being bad is pretty silly. They may not be the #1 OL, but they are easily top 5ish and just went against two teams with good DL/D coaching, and some elite play makers.

Just sticking this here. Didn’t realize jags have a bye week before our game with them.

 

 

That definitely hurts.   It's usually not good playing a team coming off their bye.

 

Minshew did a nice job in relief of Foles.   Over 60% completion, 13/4 TD/INT.  254 yards a game.  For a rookie taken in the 6th round who got thrust into the starter spot, that is pretty good.    The Jags signed Foles to a big contract (Nick Foles signed a 4 year, $88,000,000 contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars, including a $25,000,000 signing bonus, $50,125,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $22,000,000. In 2019, Foles will earn a base salary of $5,000,000, a signing bonus of $25,000,000, a roster bonus of $500,000 and a workout bonus of $250,000, while carrying a cap hit of $12,000,000 and a dead cap value of $45,375,000).

I wouldn't put Minshew in that category yet. His losses so far have been to Houston, KC (a very healthy KC), at Carolina (close game, Minshew 350+) and vs NO (very close game). 

 

I haven't looked at it lately, but the Jags OL was rated bottom 5 or 10 to start the year, and their WR unit was pretty poor too (TE is worse). Not saying he's going to be pro bowler or anything, but he's playing a pretty bad hand, very well all things considered. Will be looking a lot closer at the Jags early next week.

    • Honestly, keep running well and improving your vision and find the holes. The YPC is becoming very consistent and solid. Just find the holes, don't fumble, and you should be alright.   The way teams are stacking the box Vs him just shows how good he actually is already. Rivers isn't doing him any favors tbh.
    • It totally amazes me to have a pretty good defense but if they don't play as good as the 85 Bears, they suck.                                                                                                                                                                          
    • Probably one of the most underrated players because of the knee injury he suffered in 2001. Edge could do it all. I couldn't believe how quick and explosive he was and how effortlessly he was able to juke defenders out of their cleats. He could pass block and had some of the best not only on the team, but one of the best pass catching running backs of all time.
    • I usually eat my “night-time meal” after 9pm.  Its either the biggest or 2nd biggest meal of my day.  I dont eat breakfast.  Lunch between 11 and 1.  Dinner between 5 and 6 usually.  And then... tadaaa... the nightine meal.  As i usually dont go to bed before 2, sometimes i’ll even have a snack (1 or 2 pnut butter n jelly, or a couple bannanas).  Oh, and i drink pepsi all day too. The best part is, i’m 55, 6’3”, and weigh what i did in high school and college.  To gain weight, i have to hit the free weights HARD, and add alot of pasta, milkshakes, donuts, etc to my diet.  Im ok with the latter, but that exercise crap will kill ya!   I burn calories watching the Boston marathon while half-asleep and laying on the couch i think.   I have stopped telling these facts to women, as the looks i get could melt steel.  They cant just be happy for me.  I’ve also ticked a few off when they wanted us to check our fat % on one of those gizmos at a brookstone or sharper image store. Good, clean livin’.  Haha
    • Just because Ballard decided to go a different route has nothing to do with his ability to scout QBs.  Him trading a 13th pick for Buckner was a no brainer.  As far as what Ballard did or didn't do in regards to trading up, is a complete unknown. We don't know what Ballard is doing till it's already done.  We still don't know how Eason is going to work out so I wouldn't be so quick to judge.
