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

Yes, but with another game against the Jags to end the season.   The division is well within reach.   We are literally 1 game out.

    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. 

      
     

   

Players who’s are out will return but probably to late. If we somehow pull the jags game off I will change my tune a little because I do think we might get DF and TY back for the Texans game then Campbell returns the week after.

 

Anyone know much about the jags secondary. So they have good players.

I sure don’t want to put the season on that one game when that team has given us fits over the years.

It's been a bad few weeks through what should have been an easier stretch in the schedule.  My confidence in this team is down, not going to lie,  but I'm not ready to give up on the idea of them being able to rally and respond.

 

The decisions recently have given me pause concerning the FO and coaching staff as well but I think it may be results based recency bias more than the cultural collapse it feels like.

 

I had so much confidence in what was being built over the last two years that, in spite of my "feelings", shouldnt I shouldnt allow the last few weeks to erase that.

 

The season could look a 180 degree difference 3 weeks from now than it has in the gloom of the last 3 weeks.

 

I predicted a jags victory in another thread but I still think the colts find a way to make it interesting down the stretch and leave us with some positives leading into next year.

But your are putting the season on this game.

It's confusing.   While I don't like the Colts chances at the playoffs because of how they have played, I think it's silly to say it is over if we lose to the Jags this week and are still 1 game out of the division with 6 games left to play (1 against each division rival).

I just want to see that mean oline take over games like they did against the chiefs. The oline has been soft. Cox missed practice again today. If he doesn’t play that’s one less blocker. 

With JB back I think we will see mean and nasty. Nelson feels bad about JB's injury, look for him to have some pancakes again haha

I think it’s more the coaching change. I think  Reich screwed up. The oline coach doesn’t motivate them.

The O.Line was great all season until JB got injured other than the Denver game but Denver has a very good front 4 + Von Miller. This game Sunday will show everyone a lot. The pressure is on that is for sure.

I say No especially with Hilton out. He is their only dependable weapon at WR so when he is out defenses don't respect the passing game and simply focus on shutting down Mack and our running game.

 

2020 needs to be an offseason where Ballard hits on getting at least 1 great WR prospect, a TE to replace Ebron, a quality 3 down RB who can stay healthy, and better talent at DT and CB.

To me Sunday is like a Playoff game, as a fan that is how I am approaching it. We need this win badly.

 

I just have a gut feeling Foles is going to fall flat on his face or underwhelm while everyone expects him to do well. He always played better as a backup, like when Alex Smith got hurt when he was backup Chiefs' QB in a game here in Indy, and then we know his story with the Eagles.

They really haven't.   They've played some good D-lines and teams who are stacking against the run.

A WR won’t matter because they will just get injured. That’s how it rolls with the colts and WR. If everything had stayed mostly healthy we had a pretty good group. Campbell hadn’t got injured in camp and two other injuries I think he would of been pretty special this year.

Which means nothing changes Sunday because we have no WR.

I think Pascal will come up big Sunday, he seems to have good chemistry with JB.

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.

 

I love the moving of the goal posts... pun intended... lol

 

early in week- trolls in mass saying colts for sure going for a top 5 pick

reaction by many posters- ur clearly a troll and no one cares what u have to say

at this point in week- theyre tanking for a top 15!!!!

 

ytf would they tank for the 14th pick?

 

these same trolls had been arguing since Swagmatic got demoted to the PS that the colts were in the mid round purgatory with JB...

 

now we're tanking FOR that purgatory?

 

bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahashahahahahahahah.... not laughing at the stupidity... actually... yes i am

Only if Reich schemes him right. 

 

I just don’t like what I am hearing from the players. I hear no emotion or anything. It’s like they don’t care anymore. I mean aren’t they embarrassed how they played Sunday. Where is the anger.

Plus, Reich probably has a very good idea of the reads Foles likes to make, what he will do under pressure etc.

I also have no confidence in Reich right now. I don’t trust him... They don’t seem to care so why should I.

 

 

If you stopped caring would you stop this nonsense?

 

If so... yes you should... you shouldn't care at all anymore... I mean they CLEARLY don't care... so no need to waste your time

Yeah Mora was great in the post game pressers and a decent coach too. He led us to a 13-3 season in 1999. When ever you post and I look at your avatar it reminds me of him haha .

I think it all rests on the return of TY and the improved play of Adam.   First we need to break the TY jinx and win Sunday without him.  If we can do that and he returns against Houston then we have a great chance as our other key players; Funchess and Desir get healthy.  Then we need Adam to start making extra points and improve on his field goals.  If those things happen I think we can win the division but we need to start with a win Sunday.  I think the next two have become must wins if we are to have a real chance.

Mora was the Colt's coach when I was first old enough to actually be a fan (and not just rooting cause dad was lol)... He's one of the main reasons I was sold that the Colts were whom I wanted to devote my football loyalty... (number two on that list- Edge... still got my "We got the Edge" sign)

 

Im a sucker for people that mockingly speak truth tho...

 

Same reason Allen Iverson will always be MY favorite BBall player...

 

Practice?

Allen Iverson was a great basketball player. He deserves to be on the top 40 list of all-time IMO and we are talking out of 1000's of players. I liked Mora as a coach, Edge was great too. Polian taking Edge in the 99 draft was brilliant.

I was soo happy when we got Mack... my first reaction was, "FINALLY! We got our EDGE back!!!"

 

People always say the Colts lucked in to Peyton...

 

Talking heads pushed Ryan Leaf and then Rick Williams... Polian took Peyton and Edge... Colts weren't JUST LUCKY... they were also SMART

 

*And I def agree with AI... even with my own bias aside... dude should be, without question, on that list.

Yeah regarding AI, he definitely belongs on the list of top 40 and we have had thousands of players. I have him top 40, JMO. I haven't done a list in a long time lmao . Oh yeah, taking Edge instead of Williams and taking Peyton over Leaf was huge for this franchise. Had we took Leaf, our team would probably be in London :funny:

I doubt it, but if they do, I see a first round exit. IMO, the Colts just aren't a dominant team. They haven't really looked playoff caliber in any of their wins, unless you count beating KC by 3 points in week 5. 

They looked good in the Texan game. That game wasn’t as close as it looked. But I agree unless something changes we are done.

What really rubs me the wrong way is after the loss to the dolphins the players are all smiling and happy going off the field. I don’t think their hearts are in it anymore. 

They need you as Head Coach so you can yell at them and tell them where they can take their smiling faces :thmup:lmao

    • I was in 4th grade when this happened,i didn't want to go to school the next day after bragging on the Colts the whole week before.I learned my lesson.
    • Cam Newton can be had for an ashtray overflowing with cigarette butts
    • The whole deal was Taglibue wanted Jack Kent Cooke to have the whole Maryland market, plus the southern PA area which was traditionally a Colts and Orioles market.    I also get Charlotte, but Baltimore has been a proven  football market for two franchises. Really, the only bad attendance years were during the Bob Irsay era, 72-83, and even  some of those years , 74,75,76 had great attendance. When Taglibue told us to use the stadium money to build a museum after jipping us out on expansion, that’s when the Maryland Stadium Authority was forced to carpetbag another NFL team, or have the city permanently out of the NFL. As St Louis and Oakland also know, not a fun prospect.  
    • You think maybe this is Belichick's last year also? Fire sale players, stock up on draft picks, then have the next GM/HC figure out their players. I can't picture Belichick having the patience for building-up a new young roster at his age, especially without Brady instilling discipline into them.
