End of Season Record


MPStack

Recommended Posts

What is everyone’s predictions for the Colts end of regular season record. 
 

I’m thinking the Colts go 9-7 and it’s 50-50 for a WC game.

 

With injuries piling up especially at WR, I think it’s going to be tough beating NO, CAR, HOU and the Jags twice.

This season is quickly unraveling. I don't even want to watch this team if Hoyer is the QB. Injuries are piling up, and we have some tough games. I'm a bit more pessimistic than normal, and I'm seeing 8-8. We'll get swept by Jax, lose to NO and CAR, and sdrop another one along the way. Even the O-Line is falling apart.

IF we go 4-4 the rest of the way that will be very disappointing.

That is a little bit of a over reaction.

Funchess should be back against the jags and don’t count out TY either.  The oline isn’t falling apart. They have had a couple rough games against good defenses. That wasn’t even all the oline. It was bad blocking by the WR,TE, and RB.

Probably, but Denver is a poor version of Jax, and we had a ton of trouble Vs them. NO has Brees back and I don't see us stopping McCaffrey.

Maybe but most people were saying we wouldn't even make 8-8 after Luck retired, so even if we falter to 8-8, which will be disappointing, it'd still be a win given all the trouble this season. 

 

That said, we're still in the hunt for 13-3 as much as we are in the hunt for 8-8 or even 5-11.

I am going to guess we win at least 1 of the games everyone has us losing. Defense has been very good. Just sit back and relax and see what unfolds.  We have a bright future with as young as we are. That’s why we are inconsistent. Look at all the rookies we have played and yet they haven’t hurt our defense. Campbell staying healthy next year will be so fun. That guy is fast. This team doesn’t quite have the players yet to win a SB but we are getting closer.

 

BTW Houston’s record is hard. They have the ravens, colts and NE the three games. We need to win our two division home games and we will see what happens against the Texans. Funchess coming back probably next week and TY won’t be far behind. Then you have pascal stepping up our WR group should finish the year well.

Remember also Houston lost Watt. He had so much pressure on JB and we still killed them. No Watt we can beat them in Houston unless their  corners start to play that much better.  Also with these three straight division games we shouldn’t have trouble getting up for the games. I will be interested if foles makes them better and if it’s easier to pass on the jags without Ramsey. I do worry about the jags pass rush especially if JB is limited with the injury.

Unless we totally fall apart we should make the playoffs. Steelers offense is bad. They are going to lose more close games. Will the chargers all of a sudden turn it around. That is a possibility because they do this every year. Then you have the raiders. They are a young and inconsistent team so I guess they could. Those are the three teams we need to watch out for if we don’t win the division. The first priority is to win the division and have it wrapped up before that last game with the jags.

 

Chargers still have two games against the chiefs. They play the raiders Sunday so one of those teams we have to worry about will have a loss.

We are 5-3 now. I think 9-7 is likely or 10-6. No more wins than 10. As of now, how I see it

 

Dolphins- W

Jags- W

Texans- L

Titans- W

Tampa Bay (hard to figure them out)- L

Saints- L

Panthers- W

Jags- L

If we have our playoff seeding wrapped up by that last jags game I could see us losing seven because we will sit players. 

 

Looks like the raiders, chiefs, and chargers are going to beat up on each other. Steelers have a few tough games also.

 

We really have to watch the jags because outside the two games with us their schedule is easy.

 

Tampa Bay is a weird team I agree. We won’t be able to run on them and they have a excellent pass rush. If Winston doesn’t turn the ball over they could win. The good thing is we hopefully will have all our WR back for that game. Even Campbell.

if our o-line continues to struggle and hoyer is our qb 6-10

if our o-line gets it together 11-5

Hoyer is 1-0 as the QB so far.   You think he'd go 1-7 the rest of the way?   

He'll probably only start 1 more game though.

Based on that, I think we go 8-8. I think we lose the Carolina game.

I agree Tampa is as good of a 50-50 you will get. If we see Winston who put up points on Seattle and Los Angeles then they could win. If we got bad Winston then we may lose. I don’t like that our corners get Mike Evans and Mike Thomas in back to back weeks.

This totally depends on the health of the team. Do we get Jacoby, T.Y., Kelly, and Desir healthy by the Texans game? If so, I can totally see us ending the year 11-5.

Kelly says he is playing Sunday. I suppose that could change if practice doesn’t go well. Desir is supposed to test his hamstring in practice today. I won’t be shocked if we get TY and DF back for the jags game. But as we know once we get healthy something else happens.

its really hard to say.  so many close games with some questionable penalties and plays that could have easily gone the other way this year

 

i feel like the kicking game is going to cost us again.  we will probably lose a game we should win, and win one we should lose, thats how this team rolls

 

i'll say 9-7

It's not just this loss that has people worried IMO

Yep.   It's that every game has been close.   Raiders, Broncos, Steelers, Titans, Falcons.  Close games and an inconsistant kicking game isn't a good combo.  I think 4-4 the rest of the way is possible.

At this point last season...I felt strongly that the Colts could/should sweep the rest of the way. Luck was balling, the OL had gelled and the schedule was a pretty easy.

 

This year...the Colts (obviously) don't have Luck...the OL has started to regress and suffer injuries...and the schedule is going to get tougher after next week (I think NFC is very good this year...so having to play any team that is not ATL, WAS or NYG worries me). 

 

The Colts style of play this year has resulted in a low point differential and most games becoming a coinflip. Right now, they have been on the plus side of it...but as we saw against PIT what the other side looks like. And over the course of a season, those types of outcomes tend to regress to the mean. As of this past week, their pythagorean win expectation for the season would be 8.1 games...(points for) / (points for + points against) * 16 games...basically 8-8.

 

And you have to factor in not having a reliable kicking game...which is crucial in close games.

 

Having MIA on the schedule will help...so I am going to say 9-7 at this moment...provided they get some key player back.

9-7 or 8-8.

The way we've been winning games is hard to sustain. Especially now that we've been on the wrong side of the calls (penalties were a huge boost for us against HOU and KC, and we've seen how much they hurt us against DEN and PIT). And with AV's struggles and injuries...and potentially more injuries down the line...I'm thinking we go .500 from here on out.

Step away from the ledge...away from the ledge.

10 - 6 or even 9  - 7 I think is a great from this team after the new we received in preseason. With such wins I am really proud of FO (CB) and HC (FReich) for awesome season. I still remember when there were posts that season holders were asking for their refunds after the big news. Great Great season and success from these guys so far. 

 

In Ballard we Believe, in Reich we Trust Go COLTS Ahooooo :rock:

    • Two things stand out here. One I am not joking and second, I am not the dense one. 
    • I'm anxious to see which injured players we might get back this week.  I think Leonard and Pittman would give us a nice boost.   I noticed that the last 4 teams to beat the Falcons all lost the following week.  The Lions beat the Falcons last week, so maybe we keep that trend going?   This one looks like a toss up.  If we get Leonard and Pittman back, I like the Colts to come out on top, 27-24.
    • Thanks for sharing.   I wonder what these stats really tell us, since it is only for plays where the receiver is targeted.   I can't speak for last year, but the popular take I get from Colts fans is that Brissett was too conservative in his decision making and didn't push the ball downfield.  The stats you provided show that the receivers were open last year when they were targeted, but I wonder how open they were getting on all routes...I honestly don't know.  I assume Rivers makes more tight window throws than Brissett, and often times successfully, so I would expect that to skew the separation stats downward slightly for this season.
    • Yeah, it's only must win if you want a winning season.   After this game, I see at best the Colts winning  4 of 9.  Bal, Pitt, GB unlikely. Split with TN and HOU, a very tough battle out in LV.  Jax will likely be the decider for the playoffs.  Even at 4-2 we're still in 7th.  We lost the tie breaker with the Browns who most likely will be there with us so we have to be a game up and LV at the end will also trying to squeak in which makes them a must win also for tie breaker reasons. If we lose this one, we have to beat one of the big 3 left and sweep either Hou or TN.  That could be done, but for me the trouble is scoring enough.  We need to be able to score 30+ in a bunch of games coming up.  Detroit might be the first as I think Galloway is rounding back into form and Swift finally has heated up as well.   I wouldn't be surprised if we lost this game.   In the end, we likely will win a game that looks unwinnable, but lose one we think we have in the bag.  If that holds true, this game is a must win because going over .500 the rest of the way seems unlikely.  An injury to one of those team's QBs would change everything, but status quo looks more daunting.  We also need to be scoring 30+ to beat these teams for the most part.  Houston, by the way, has played most of their toughest games.  TN, like us, has a lot of tough games left.  I could still see them losing 5+ more games but doubt we win 5+ more after this week.  Our head to heads start with an away Thurs game after a brutal Bal game the Sunday before.  We've been scheduled for way more Away Thursday games than any other team in history.  If I remember right, we've only hosted on Thursday 3 times, one of which was the infamous Thanksgiving game against Pitt.  We caught a little break in that TN originally had their Bye week just before our game but now have to play their make up game with Bal that was shifted to that week.     I wouldn't be surprised to find us playing either KC, Pitt or Bal in the playoffs whether we win the division or finish as the #7 seed.  I don't like our chances with a fading QB.     Record and Scoring Ave.   @Det: 3-3 26.0 Bal: 5-1 29.83 @TN: 5-1 31.33 GB: 5-1 32.8 TN: 5-1 31.33 @Hou: 1-6 27.66 @LV: 3-3  28.5 Hou: 1-6 27.66 @Pitt: 6-0  30.5 Jax: 1-6 25.66   We are averaging 26.16 against some of the worst defenses in the league and some of our scoring has been our defense.    Based on that? This is a MUST win game to make the playoffs AND not be playing Bal or Pit or KC.  If it were a bet, I say this is a pick 'em game.  It's not, and as such I would take the points.  I think the team with the last possession with time (versus less than the 60 seconds that Stafford needs) wins.  I also think for the Colts to win, our Defense has to score. I think if we lose this game, we will have to sweep TN to make the playoffs (because of that dang loss to Jax and the need for the divisional tie breaker).     Lions 31-30 Colts  (Hope I am wrong).  
    • Brissett is a decent backup QB (look around - he’s perhaps the very best backup QB available given he knows Colts system and can step right in) - and any team with playoff aspirations needs two capable QB in case starter is injured (for a few plays or longer).  Having one would leave us exposed.  Trading Brissett for a draft pick is shortsighted.  He would command very little in return and whatever we would get would be a draft pick in the future.
