   I’m sticking with my 10-6 and winning the Division. 
   It’s not like the Colts have never had a deep passing game with Brissett.

   The concerns? Can Hilton, Campbell and Funchess make a difference? Can they get healthy and develop timing with Brissett?

   We’ll see. If they can, the Colts can make the playoffs. A lot is going to depend Reich’s play calling as well.

Same here..... I think we’ll rally to a 10-6 record and take the division.

If Jacoby had played every game this season he would be at least 8-3, and with a kicker 9-2. So not much difference.

 

i dont just assume we would have won those games, the dolphins actually showed up on defense and shut down the running game.  im not convinced JB would have done enough to win

If you like playing around with simulators, this one is pretty fun.

Allows you to easily pick all the games each week.

If we lose tonight, tough road to a WC....

Colts went from 3 seed to 7 seed fast, and on the short end of most tie breakers.

 

But we still have a chance, at division or wild card.  I'm keeping the faith.  And that Frank will figure out the pass game.

 

I think it is fair to also ask if CK being on the 53 has been prepared for any spot duty assignments?

We need the Texans to lose another division game and we have to beat the Titans and win at Jax. I am not sure the Texans will sweep the Titans. Titans aren't a bad team. That would give us the tiebreaker over the Texans if we have a better division record.

If the Texans lose to the Pats and at Tennessee and we lose 1 more, both teams will finish 10-6. We would get the tiebreaker as long as we beat the Titans and win at Jax.

I don't really want to see CK at all until we are squarely out of the hunt. If that happens, I want to see as much swag as possible.

 

I'm keeping faith too, but my confidence has taken a major hit. We have some challenging games ahead of us. I'd love to see Frank just go uber aggressive and wide open to be honest. If we roll conservative the rest of the way, it may work, may not, but also negates or limits the chance of growth. 

 

I think the Raiders loss will end up being the dagger.

Oh, i thought they had all tiebreakers if we have same record.  Good to know.  Im hoping the Raiders take division too. I’ll take ANY help

I say if we get some guys back healthy this team could run off 5 out of 6 easily. I remember last year at 2 and 5 did you think we could run off those wins? I say no , lets just let the season unfold , we all know we don't have enough to win it all just yet , Frank you are getting outcoached man. The play calling has been not too good , You use Hines in the first half on short passes and then none in the second half. Give this team a chance .

Patriots.... at Tennessee..... and a loss to Tampa Bay in a crazy shootout.

 

In fact.... by my ever so subtle kool-aid guzzling, blue-tinted glass, homer bias-driven input into this wonderful machine.... we win the AFC South and the Texans don't even make the playoffs. :lol:

I can actually see them losing to the Pats and at Tennessee which would mean we would have to go 4-1 the rest of the way to win the division. It is doable if we can get back to winning the close one's. At Saints is really the only real tough game we have left. Having said that, it is hard to predict how we will play game to game. We need to sweep Tennessee 1st and worry about the other stuff later. I don't think the Texans will sweep Tennessee.

The whole parity aspect of the AFC, and the NFL in general... is crazy right now.... nothing can be ruled in or out.

 

That 3rd loss I see for the Texans at Tampa Bay could be a lot of fun to watch, given Arians and his Top 10 offense versus the Texans pass defense....and vice-versa with Watson and his WR corps.  Hopefully... Tampa Bay can help us out.

 

I think we can go 4-1 to close out the season and win the division at 10-6.

 

I look at it this way.... 2 weeks before the season a good number of people were giving up.... I ain't giving up until W-L column says we're through. :thmup:

TN game is now "must win" lol.... I have no idea what to expect now. Whatever it turns out to be, will be interesting. This season has turned into the "As the World Turns" type stuff.

 

If we lose, I might be in the lose for Love, bomb for Burrow, tank for Tua, or horrible for Herbert, crowd...... 

 

If we win, I'll fight another day.

I know....Tampa at 3-7 aren't exactly awe-inspiring.... but looking at their scores and the teams they played... offensively they really don't suck all THAT bad.

Yeah if we lose to Tennessee the season is in jeopardy that is for sure. That would really be bad. As of now we still have a decent shot at getting in but need help too unfortunately.

 

Bomb for Burrow lmao , that is a good one.

Tampa is a capable team. Top 5 passing, mediocre running on O. 

On D, lousy vs the pass, good vs the run.

 

They could absolutely beat us if we're afraid to pass.

It's really hard for me to give up. I want to see post season play when I'm back in Indy over Christmas. Even if it's just watching on TV with my family and friends. While our chances are less than 50% to make the playoffs, I think we're still at 40ish, so not totally bad.

And that's the other side of the coin to my reply to WoolMagnet.

 

I'm hoping they beat the Texans in what could easily be a high-scoring track meet.... and somehow we can play solid enough D to beat them ourselves.

Mediocrity is far worse than being terrible. 

 

I'll disagree there. Look at the Cleveland Browns. When a team has a losing culture, it's harder to attract players and put fans in the seats. At least when a team is entering the season as mediocre, there's a glimmer of playoff hope. Yes, the worst team gets the 1st overall pick, but if the team they're surrounding him with is awful, it won't matter.

It should be a track meet as long as Houston's OC doesn't pull a Reich.

Big difference is we were more balanced on O during that playoff run. Passing game is currently bottom ten. Teams simply don't fear our passing game.

I think every game with the exception of the Jags game has been decided by 7 points or less.  The Jags games was a dominant win 20 pts. to our favor.

 

Close games will more than likely continue, and hopefully they'll go in our favor. 

 

I still see us in the playoffs.

The Browns have had pretty terrible ownership. 
 

Would you prefer to be the Bengals (although they’re blowing it up this year), the Titans, the Lions at a push. Teams that have had a QB good enough to get them to around 8-8 each year. Maybe a WC appearance, but that’s it.

Even if we do somehow make the playoffs the Colts would probably be the most limited offense in the playoffs.

At minimum, likely the easiest to defend.

I don’t even care at this point, I want those deflated losers to go out there and grill up some steak on the hood of a car. I want to see the cows demolished, and if it has to be the Pats so be it.

That could work.

The easiest thing there is picking which one of our games we’d probably lose lol

At Saints is probably a loss but then again we won at KC. The Colts are unpredictable right now. We have to win those 2 division games though to have any chance of winning the division IMO.

I’d love for us to make the playoffs even though I don’t think it will happen.

If we can’t make the playoffs, maybe God will at least give me the satisfaction of watching the deflaters, the cows, and the bumblebees get crushed the rest of the year. If I could erase three teams from all of sports I’d start with those three, right there with that abomination of a Cowboys ripoff.

 

I’m a little angry tonight, I’ve moved on to the next stage of grief in my Colts loss process

Thursday was a real tough loss. We were up 17-10 and couldn't put it away. Now we need help and really need to go 4-1 to get in.

I don't think the AFC South has a playoff contender among them this year. Sure, one of the teams makes the playoffs, but whichever one it is will go one and done. At least that's the current situation. 

 

A team could theoretically get their * together for December and roll into the playoffs strong. It's happened before. I don't anticipate that happening in this division. Poor execution and too much inconsistency all around. I'll still watch, root, and enjoy the rest of the games tho!

Some scores at halftime that could affect  the colts. Steelers are down  7-3 to the bengals and Oakland is losing to the jets 13-3.

Jets are now up 20-3 over Oakland. The playoff picture is getting more muddled for the wildcard spot.
