Since the Colts love playing down to lower teams, I think it's going to be a lot closer than we all think. 

There'll be vomit on my sweater...mom's pasghetti.

I'm assuming Hoyer plays....   Colts 42, Fins 16.  Hoyer 300+ with 3 TDs Mack 150 + 2 TDs Hines 100 all purpose + TD

Raiders are better the the jags. Jags also lost a WR. I don’t know for how long though. I thought I remember seeing it was a season ending injury.

I think they are close.  Having Foles back will also help the Jags.

Bold Prediction of the week - Colts will have 2 RB’s go over 100 yards from scrimmage. 

That actually isn’t to bold. Hines will take Campbell’s spot and probably get more snaps. Mack will probably have a day too. What could hurt Hines is if hoyer plays. He might not use him as well.

We should win this in a blowout  =   Don't realize individual matchups dictate the game

Colts play to the level of opponent = Don't realize individual matchups dictate the game

Colts didn't show up for that game = Don't realize individual matchups dictate the game

Their defense is so bad the only way we lose is if we keep turning over the ball. Our defense would have to do a complete turnaround and be very bad after three weeks of great play. The only way it’s close is a bunch of mental mistakes.  If the Steelers scored 27 on them we should be able to score 35.  This could actually be a game that Jacoby plays but ends up not finishing if we do what we need to do.

Not really. Pretty even and similar results vs the same foe. You out to look at their schedules and compare. While doing that, keep in mind that the Jags have been playing the entire time with a true rookie QB. GM has done well all things considering, but Foles should be a bit of an upgrade however you look at it. Also realize that the Jags had to give up a division home game to play Houston in the UK.

 

Then add in that they have two weeks to prepare for us, and we have zero real film on Foles playing for the Jags...

We have no film of foles with the jags but we do have Reich who knows everything about him. I do think the jags coach has them playing really hard every week.

Their pass D isn't horrible. Similar to TN who JB only had 150ish yards against. They are better than ATL and Houston, and a lot better than the Raiders whom we've all played. Their rush D is horrible.

Foles under Marrone will be very different from the Eagles O when Reich was there. They'll be basically having to look at both Foles' time with the Eagles, and Minshew's tape for the Jags.

Remember they lost Howard for the season during the Steelers game.

What I meant was Reich probably knows what kinds of defensive looks give Foles the most trouble. What are his tendencies. I can imagine he will have some things for Eberflus that could help. It may or may not help. They will probably get Westbrook back which will help them.

Howard isn't a huge loss IMO. Had a great 2018, but he's the lowest ranked/rated of the DB rotation and was only 56.5 on PFF. Not saying it's not a loss, but he hasn't been near his 2018 level.

Howard intercepted Luck twice  last year. Glad he isn't  out there

I'm glad he's not out there too, I just wouldn't assume it will be a major impact to Miami's passing D. They're mediocre, but not horrible. I have to imagine Indy will be run heavy given Miami's horrible run D, and in turn, have to assume Miami will sell out a lot vs the run and dare us to throw it.

What I was actually thinking was, Mack gets his yards early to build a big lead, and Wilkins gets his yards as we run out the clock in the 2nd half.

   What I’d like to see is the Colts not beat themselves: Penalties, blown coverages, dropped passes, bad throws, bad technique, are what has made these games close.

     So, I’m hoping that’s what we see. Playing hard but smart. If they do that, the Colts can win by double digits.

      Colts 31

So you are counting on things that have yet to happen in the first 8 games?   Every game has been close, which means we could have lost (or won) any of them.   Also, the Colts highest score this season is 30.   

I would put my money on the Colts winning, but I'd still be worried about losing my money.

I said things should go this way. I never said they will. I said our defense would have to do a complete turn around for us to lose.  What should happen is different then what will happen. Just like all the predictions of wins and losses the rest of the season. They are just guesses.

I admit, I just now got around to watching the Steelers/Colts highlights on YouTube. I was busy during the game and after I saw the reactions, wasn’t sure I could stomach it.


Now that I’ve seen them, I’m 99% sure we are going to win this one at home - even if JB and TY are out. Hoyer played well, Pascal has stepped up big time, and our defense is doing enough to win us games. Let’s hope special teams isn’t the final deciding factor in this one. :goodluck:

27-17 Colts if Brissett plays

20-17 Colts if Hoyer plays

 

It'll be pretty difficult to lose this one, we'll see Sunday.

27 to 17 Brissett.  24 to 20 dolphins  of hoyer plays as another pick 6 would  be the difference

    • My pick for QB would be Michael Gallup. Oh wait, he's a WR. Yeah then I will still take Michael Gallup as we need receivers more than a QB right now.   Send Rock to Dallas for Gallup. 
    • Gus Johnson is a play by play guy.   Romo is color commentator.   They don't have the same job.    Both are very good at what they do,  but they do different things
    • I see many of the draft "experts" talk about what the Colts will do in the draft.   The draft process on the QB position, even with all the improved scouting techniques is a highly flawed .   If you look at history some interesting facts come out. Drafting a QB in the first round is a high risk endeavor    In the past 9 Years 20 QBs have been drafted in the first round.  I wanted to come up with some metrics to see the % that have worked out with the team that they drafted them   I am "measuring" the results with the simple question,   Would the NFL team make the same draft decision, at their position in that years draft, in hindsight - Its a YES/NO decision   For the ones that are still TBD (last few years) I counted these as YES. The selection of Goff as a "NO" is not that he is a horrible QB, but a simple question.... If you could do the pick again would you take Goff at number 1 overall.....  my guess is the Rams would have gone another way   2012 Draft Round 1 1st Andrew Luck - YES 2nd Robert Griffin - NO 8th Ryan Tannehil - NO 22nd Brandon Wheedon - NO   2013 Draft Round 1 16th EJ Manuel - NO   2014 Draft Round 1 3rd Pick Blake Bortles - NO 22nd Johnny Manziel - NO   2015 Draft Round 1 1st - Jameis Winston - NO 2nd Marcus Marriota  - NO   2016 Draft Round 1 1st Jared Goff - NO 2nd Carson Wentz - YES 22nd Paxton Lynch - NO   2017 Draft Round 1 2nd Mitch Trubiski - NO 10th Pat Mahomes - YES 12th Deshaun Watsun - YES   2018 Draft Round 1 1st Baker Mayfield - YES 3rd Sam Darnold - NO 7th Josh Allen - YES 10th Josh Rosen - NO 32nd Lamar Jackson - YES   With this data, drafting a QB in the first round is a 30% hit rate   The folks that want to give up 2 or 3 first round picks to move up to get Fields or Wilson may want to think deeper on this   From my perspective, and looking at the analytics it would appear that drafting the best BPA OL, DL , CB, or even WR,  available at 21 is the safest approach   And going with an extremely low risk/ low cost FA (Winston) or if the deal is decent, offering a trade to get Matthew Stafford. (Stafford route is my first choice), but I wouldnt want to  get fleeced in the trade.   If the right LT isnt there at 21, there are a few FA OTs that we could pick up       Let me know your thoughts...........      
    • I know right? Word outa GB is that Love has not fared well to this point in any facet and doesn't look all that but yet some want the Colts to trade for him... Ha!!
