They have struggled in what was considered the easy stretch of their schedule.  But they are still 5-4 and in the mix for a possible playoff spot.  Do you think they will rally and get in or is their performance over the past three weeks a harbinger of what is to come?

The organization is not interested in making the playoffs IMO. When you are playing with a kicker that has clearly lost it and are not seeking to upgrade. It borderline tanking if you ask me. This team wants a top 15 pick. Ballard is fascinated with collecting 2nd day draft picks. He will trade down again this year.

Probably not. I am excited to get all our WR back for DEC and see what might of been. It will be to late by that time though. But maybe we can look forward to the future if they play well in DEC.

I respect that...but this poll is simple one...are they making it or not?  I recognize that going into this season fans had differing expectations for this team.

Doubt it with the caveat the I don't think it's on Ballard and Reich. It really can't be overstated how disruptive 12 giving up the pigskin habbit was/is/going to be.

I say no because the Steelers and Raiders have the tie-breaker over us.  

But I'd give the team a 30% shot.

They don't deserve a spot when you lose to a team full of bartenders.

At this point it’s division win or go home. No wildcard. I will be pulling for a browns win tonight though over Buffalo.

I would agree with that but this team was playing better than this a month ago they responded well after Luck retired so not an excuse.

Yeah...I agree that our wildcard chances are slim to none at this point.  The division will be the best route if they manage to get there.

Unfortunately, if TY is out the next few games, still TBD. I would say no. It’s tough to say that, but reality has set in after the last 2 weeks. I’m still rooting and still plan to attend both games here in Florida! Go Blue.

The Colts have wet the bed in all 3 games T.Y. has missed.  It’s more a factor of his availability than who is at quarterback in my opinion.  This is a different offense when T.Y. steps on the field.  Just his presence opens up everything.

We gave Pittsburgh life.  They now actually are starting to believe that they can be a good team.

At this point we will get everyone back to late. I guess we just sit back and hopefully see this offense blossom when everyone is healthy come DEC. Maybe we see the playbook open up some and let this offense see what they can do. Having Jacoby back Sunday will help but unless jags completly crap the bed it’s going to be difficult to win. They have had two weeks to prepare and get Foles ready.  The WR group took a gigantic hit at the wrong time. If Desir doesn’t play Sunday that will be even worse with Foles having such a good deep ball.

I agree.   Playing in 9 close games will usually end up with a 4-5 or 5-4 record like it has.   Win some, lose some.   We could have won or we could have lost every one of these games:

I will disagree  some. I think the last two losses were because of Jacobys injury.  Both those games came down to Hoyers INT. I am comfortable in saying I think we win both pretty easily with Jacoby. If I remember right Campbell didn’t get hurt until the 4th quarter bur pretty much didn’t do much after Jacoby left the game.

Are you saying we won't see Hilton and Funchess for the Houston game?

I had us going 9-7 at the beginning of the year. Still think that. Improbable that we make the playoffs. Just too many obstacles to overcome.

Houston has also tried to upgrade their corners. They got  that player off waivers some colts wanted. Got Connely and roby will be back. So we do need DF and TY back.

I think Hoyer would have been more successful with T.Y. in the line up but agree that Jacoby is the much better option. 
 

I think we will get a good feel on how well the Colts look with Jacoby and no T.Y. this week against the Jags.  The only other game when that occurred this season was the Raiders game and the Colts were disappointing in defeat.

I don't get you reasoning.   If we lose to the Jags we will most likely be 1 game behind the Texans (I think the Ravens beat them this week).  Then we play the Texans which is the "real" season deciding game.  Lose to the Jags and beat the Texans and we have the division lead in sight.  The Titans end the season with Raisers, Texans, Saints, Texans.   This Jags game is big, but not a deal breaker if Hilton and Funchess are back.

Yes it was.  I was very upset after that game partially because I just despise losing to the Steelers but also because I recognized how big of a missed opportunity that was and the potential negative implications down the road.

We have to pull the next 3 games to win the division and secure our playoff spot. Don’t see the wildcard happening after losses to 4 afc teams

I think we'll just barely miss out at 9-7 or 8-8. Texans finish ahead of us by a game or two, although they've got a couple tough ones coming up against the Pats and Ravens.

To be fair I think we would of been just fine in Pittsburgh without Jacoby getting injured. Campbell didn’t get hurt until the 4th quarter but once hoyer came in he was ineffective if I remember. Reich actually had a good game plan with lots of variety before Jacoby went down.

 

Reich has got to get more imagination into this offense. It’s way to predictable with no variety.  A lot of that though is because hoyer was in.

By losing to the jags that puts us behind the jags in the standings.

Too many let downs. Too many injuries. Miami loss. Lack of game breaking offense even when healthy. Bad 3rd down defense. Bad kicking game. O-Line 180. 
 

Too much to overcome

I'm with you.

I find it hard to believe we will beat Houston in their house this year.  They are dangerous and i havent seen us out up the points needed for a score-fest.

  Even with Houstons schedule, i dont have the confidence we can get the division.  

  Jax and Tennessee will be TOUGH i think and, once again i dont have much confidence in us putting up enuff points every week to the end.

 The way we play offense, rely on our defense,  coupled with kicking inconsistency does not spell success as we have seen.  

  I havent given up, but our inconsistency , along with being on the short end of tie breakers (Pitt/Oak/Sd/Mia(haha)) leaves us in a "need help" scenario.

Similar to last year.

I don’t think Hoyer was horrible in that Pittsburgh game.  Despite the pick six, he got us in position at the end of the game to still win it.  Special teams & Adam Vinatieri were the reasons why that did not occur.  It was a horrible performance by our kicking unit.  Maybe Jacoby would have had us out to a more comfortable lead at some point. Probably not because all of our games this season wind up being close.  But if it came down to our special teams to secure the win it’s likely that the outcome would not have been much different.  Guess we will never know.

We wouldn’t of needed hoyer to give us a chance if he hadn’t thrown the INT. Like I said once he came  In I think Campbell disappears because the playbook got shut down.

    If the Colts get “hot”, the playoffs are definitely in reach. The next three games will tell much of the tale this year. As someone mentioned, they could  be in first place next week.

    All of the self-inflicted wounds are correctable. That includes turnovers, dropped passes, penalties, missed assignments, bad play calling, bad throws and bad kicks. 
     There are some important players out, that may return soon. In the meantime, some players are getting experience and the team is at least, building depth.

      Playoffs? Maybe, maybe not. Could go either way but this team certainly has the potential to get there.

    • I don't know if this has been discussed anywhere else on this forum but regarding Kelly and others, Reich and Ballard are always harping on competition and position battles to build a stronger team. It seems to me the 2 weakest areas on this team are the 2 they haven't allowed any competition, qb and kicker. Just an observation. I can't complain about being 6-6, I thought we'd go 11-5 or 10-6, just couldn't get it done in key moments of some games(the qb and kicker really let us down at times). It's not over yet though, if we can win out we still have a chance at the post season.
    • It was definitely not a good story ending for the underdogs, or a triumphant tale like Rudy, that's for darn sure..... All kids should have a similar experience though lol... It's a welcome to reality moment.    Finding tape on guys is much much easier that it used to be. I'm definitely no expert though. I'm just someone that prefers stats and film to watching a bunch of brainless TV shows lol.  It's more of something to do around the draft/FA period when there's not football to watch. To me, the more you know, the more interesting the season is. Also the more realistic you are about some guys.
    • To get this back on track. The more I read and hear from so called experts. It would not be shocking that Ballard just continues to build around JB and draft a QB in like round 3-4. You hear Florio say that the Colts are happy and moving forward with JB.

    • While I agree he got a bit of a raw deal, and agree he probably works well with FR, I think he's a bit of fool's gold built on one rare year. He'd be an upgrade over JB for sure in FR's system, but I'd rather go young and get a guy to grow long term with. 
    • Yeah, the hooded evil genius just needs to retire and go away lol. It's just unfair to the rest of the league.    Shan gets it now, but I think they'll have a little late fall from grace and end up a 5 in the NFC. The way the schedule plays out, I can see Seattle taking their division.
