Yes I hated the conservative play calling, and the garbage non review at the end too, but whatever. The game is over. Let's move on.

 

Let's not act like Houston just won the division. By all means they should have won this game like 8 times out of 10. Colts are banged up and Houston has the better QB, plus road teams are historically awful on the short Thursday night. 

 

Houston will probably lose to the Patriots. I trust Reich will come up with a viable game plan to beat Tennessee in 10 days.  By then both teams will be 7-5 and the Colts will be ahead with a better division record (albeit the Texans haven't played as many division games).

 

I'm gonna do what I did after the Dolphins loss and just stay off the forum for like 5 days, just to avoid the hot takes haha. But before I do, I just want to tip my cap off to Watson and Hopkins. I hate them and their stupid team but I respect em. They're quiet good at that Football thing.

 

Congrats Texans. You only beat us when we make questionable 4th down decisions anyways. 

Texans have a much easier schedule down the stretch.  Not looking good for a Indy.  Likely will be on the outside looking in.  Botched easy stretch of schedule will cost them a playoff spot.

With losses to the Steelers and Dolphins (and just how uninspiring and inconsistent this team has been in general,) I’m not ok with counting anything for this team until the final whistle and we’re up on the scoreboard.

I don't think the season is over by any means, but it's an uphill battle for sure. Texans have the Pats, sure, but we have 3 of our last 5 on the road. 

My way too early prediction is that we lose the away game at Jax, and probably to the Saints.

The Tn game is a home game.

Unfortunately...HOU now controls their own destiny for the AFCS. Colts need to run the table AND have HOU lose twice. That's a tall order for both sides of that coin.

Not true. If the Colts run the table they only need Houston to lose 1 divisional game.

My projection of all teams still fighting for spots, giving Pats and Ravens divisional titles. I've eliminated teams that already have 7 losses, as I'm assuming 10-6 is needed to make the playoffs. To me, this is how Colts make the playoffs.

 

Colts(6-5) - Titans, at Bucs, at Saints, Panthers, At Jags

Need to win two remaining divisional games, and 2/3 from NFC south. For arguments sake, let's say they do.

Projected 10-6

 

Houston(7-4) - Pats, Broncos, at Titans, at Bucs, Titans

Loss to Pats, one of the Titans games.

Projected 10-6 (Colts win divisional tiebreaker)

 

Raiders(6-4) - at Jets, at Chiefs, Titans, Jags, at Chargers, at Broncos

After next Sunday (Dec 1), Raiders or Chiefs will be up to 5 losses. Raiders could be at 6. The Jets are going to be a tough game for teams down the stretch.

Losses to Jets, Chiefs, Titans

Projected 9-7, or 10-6 if they beat the Chiefs.

 

Chiefs(7-4) - Raiders, at Pats, Broncos, at Bears, Chargers.

This is a tough schedule. Good chance if they lose to the Raiders, they will miss the playoffs.

Losses to Pats, possibly one other.

11-5, or 10-6 if they lose to Raiders.

 

Bills(7-3) - Broncos, at Cowboys, Ravens, at Steelers, at Patriots, Jets

Sorry, but the Bills are a 9-7 team, even with one of the easiest schedules in the league. They may beat the Broncos and Steelers, but I could see them losing the other four games.

Losses to Cowboys, Ravens, Patriots,

Projected 10-6 at best. More likely to be 9-7.

 

Steelers(5-5) - at Bengals, Browns, at Cardinals, Bills, at Jets, at Ravens

If the Steelers go 8-8 it will be a miracle. They'll probably lose to the Bengals this week.

Projected 8-8 at best.

 

Titans(5-5) - Jags, at Colts, at Raiders, Texans, Saints, at Texans

Goodnight Titans with this schedule. If they get in, they will have earned it. At the very least, they'll be a big factor in deciding who gets in and who doesn't.

Lots of possibilities. This team can go 6-10 or 10-6. Titans are the key team in the AFC playoff race.

Projected 8-8

 

Browns(4-6) - Dolphins, at Steelers, Bengals, at Cardinals, Ravens, at Bengals

I can see them getting to 7-6 and thinking they have a shot. But at that point, they lose 2/3 at the end.

Projected 8-8

Jags(4-6) - at Titans, Bucs, Chargers, at Raiders, at Falcons, Colts

Not happening. They'll be out after this week.

Projected 5-11. Jags are still the Jags.

 

Bottom line is if the Colts go 10-6, losing only to one of the NFC south teams, they will make the playoffs. If they lose 2 games and go 9-7, they simply aren't consistent enough and don't deserve to get in.

They did just win the division they have a passing game that atleast isn't trash ours is trash gameplan was garbage and I will get backlash for this but Brissett will never be anything more than a good backup.

I really love the way the defense is playing.  A blown coverage away from a win.  They are getting better every week.  It's the offense that's holding us back.  We really need Funchess to come back and be a factor.  A little contribution from Campbell as well.  If that happens we will make it and if we get in anything can happen.

 I have been a JB supporter throughout this year, but I am starting to lose faith in his abilities. The waiting for his guys to get open is a big deal, because in the NFL, if you dont throw it where your WR is going to be open, your window of opportunity is already gone by the time you see it unfold. 

 

JB doesn't seem to have Anticipation of his WRs coming open. Everything else is at an acceptable level. His Pocket awareness is good enough. Hes hard to bring down. He brings a real definition of the term "Lazer, Rocket arm" to the table. He can scramble. Hes overall safe with the ball. 

 

All these things dont matter if you're missing your windows of opportunity. JB doesn't trust himself to make that throw. Hes playing scared of the interception, and its hindering his progress. You gotta sling it to see the progression of the play in real time. 

 

Frank Reich has to know this is happening. I'm not going to say JB cant get better in this area. But I'm losing faith that he can. We will know over the next year and a half. I would be fine with drafting a guy and letting him sit behind JB for a year. Theres no way Ballard is content with the level of QB play when hes constantly evaluating the roster. 

 

Houston will always give us fits. And it's going to be interesting in a couple years with a proven run game and defense then add a better QB whoever that may be... this team is still going to be in prime position in 2 years. All last night did we tell me the Colts arent ready. The defense has some real play makers on it for once. Kenny Moore is an absolute beast. I was just discussing with my father the thought of having Freeney and Mathis on this defense. Like holy crap. Theres 2 more drafts where we can get more pass rushers. Our potential franchise QB, another stud WR and a RT (Smith needs to go back to G) If anything Ballard is showing he can stack talent. Ballard may be just using Brissett as a 2 year rental. And why not?

Have you watched the Bengals, even just highlights? They are not beating the Steelers. That schedule for them is set up nicely.

 

Raiders arent losing to the Jets.

 

I get it you want to be as optimistic as possible but, you need to be more realistic also

I honestly think this is a 50/50 share of blame. JB isn’t going to be confused for Manning but he isn’t Ryan Leaf either. I’m not even sure who his comparable is at this point because I can’t say I recall watching another QB like this. Saying that, what coordinator is incapable of building schemes to fit their players? A really good one will adapt to what they have and this team has seen JB play enough by now to know what they have. Lack of PA pass while murdering the opposition with the run is mind boggling. Not throwing to Doyle over the short to medium range in the middle of the field was also mind boggling. Trusting that your QB is finally going to connect on a deep pass when your game is on the line near the end is just stupid when he hasn’t shown he can do it all game long. Coaching decisions are borderline terminating type offenses in this league. I just can’t understand their logic this year.

I have highlighted an area that feels spot on about JB and I agree with most everything you put in here. Nice post. 
 

the one thing we may differ in is if we can agree that JB is just what he looks like at this point and his ceiling isn’t much above what we are seeing, I’d really like to just take a look at Kelly during live fire and see what, if anything at all, we have with him. You would think at the VERY LEAST, Kelly could sink and dunk equally as well as JB has with the ability to go vertical. Even if you pull the risky vertical away from Kelly and just say dunk and dunk, he gives you the speed from his feet. The possible plus side if you say go play your game, is he able to throw a guy open and can he do that safely enough without being too high risk with the ball? 
 

im not advocating that Kelly is the answer or anything remotely like that, I’m at the point though that I feel this team is stuck in the mid with JB and we don’t go far with him, regardless if the coaches can build better plans or not because he can’t seem to anticipate his throws deep. Kelly May or may not but let’s look at the kid and either check boxes or know that he is just another qb in this league. Idk 

 

dang you Luck for pulling out of this team like you did.

I'm not a fan of Andrew's methods either. 

 

Idk if JB has reached his ceiling or not. I'm willing to see if he can improve by the end of this year. If he doesn't I will personally write him off as not franchise material. He knows the playbook. He knows the team. There wasnt a lot going against his success with this team. But not being able to push it down field in certain games like when you're injured (every year?) Isnt good enough to be this franchise's QB. 

 

As for Kelly I'd love to see what he can do. He seems to have some real talent at the QB position. I'm afraid unless this team goes 8-8 JB will also take all the snaps next year.

That was one crazy looking brace JB was wearing.  I think if he was 100% he makes that 1st down at the end of the game as well as his passing game being more accurate.  He and TY weren't 100%.  Lucky if they were 80% and those two are our key playmakers on offense.  And if it wasn't for blown coverage we probably would have won.  Still a long way to go with ten days rest coming up and Funchess returns.  It can still happen.

So by realistic,  I guess you mean

base everything on the favorite winning every game? Doesn’t happen in this league. 

 

The Steelers are awful, and this will be the Bengals super bowl, so to speak. 

 

The Jets are getting their act together just in time to screw up their draft order. 

 

Outside of NE and Baltimore, the AFC is loaded with mediocrity. 

 

Im not saying all this will happen, but I am saying it’s very possible.

I don't think Texans are that great, especially with the players that were out yesterday. I think Bill O'brien is really bad and their defense is pretty pathetic this year especially considering JJ wasn't out there. The only bright spots on their team is Watson, Hopkins and maybe their o line, when the day comes when they fire O'brien I will be very sad at the fact that they might become a great team.

The only tough game left on the Texans schedule is New England.  Houston usually fares well against other AFC South teams outside of Indy.  Colts likely won’t catch them. 11-5 or 10-6 probably wins the division for Texans.

All fair. It would be the right thing to do in seeing how well or if it’s the same when DF, PC and TY are all on together but does the team have the luxury to see what JB does with luxury talent vs avg guys? Idk. My only question is regardless of who is in, can he scan the field or is he a 1-2 read QB? 
 

as for Kelly, I’m afraid you’re right. Going to take a few bad outings and a dive in the standings or an “injury” to see Kelly. I’d sure like to see if Kelly has the ability to look around and be better in progressions than what JB has shown.

    • https://nflcommunications.com/Pages/NFL-Network-Analyst-Daniel-Jeremiah-2020-NFL-Scouting-Combine-Conference-Call----Transcript-and-Audio.aspx   Thought some people might enjoy it.    I am just starting to listen, no idea if it will be good but if there is something interesting Colts related or QB related, etc. I will post later in the thread.    -QBs for him - tons of ability in this group but also some question marks.  -WRs and CBs are deep in this draft. Phenomenal WR class. RB class is good too.  -mentions Colts as potential QB spot among Bengals, Dolphins, Chargers, Panthers, Raiders, Colts, Bucs... -Jake Fromm - very impressive in person, very mature, engaging, you can see why he won over the locker room. The concern - arm-strength - ball dies on some throws -some teams think Andrew Thomas might be RT -Adam Trautman, Harrison Bryant and Cole Kmet are his top 3 TEs. Brycen Hopkins - 4th-5th round grade, developmental prospect, too many drops and needs to be better blocking -He seems to like Austin Jackson much better than most people I've read. Says he might jump up boards after the combine.  -teams are all over the map with Jacob Eason. One team Jeremiah has heard from has him as their QB2.  Big arm, bad habbits - trying to wheel out and turns his back to the defense when pressured. Needs to be a bit more of a playmaker instead of just being pure thrower. Needs to create some plays and extend some plays. R1 or R2.  -Derrick Brown - same grade as Chase Young... closest thing to Ndamukong Suh - Kevin Bowen question "How would you handle the QB dilemma for the Colts with #13 and the 2 2nd round picks?" - DJ answer: "I would start by signing Philip Rivers and I would try to make a run at it in the next couple of years because I think they are pretty close. I think Rivers will come in and give them an upgrade. And then you are picking at 13... and I know there is so much depth at WR, but if I'm the Colts I would be awfully tempted and see a Jerry Jeudy, Ceedee Lamb, Henry Ruggs... if one of those 3 guys were there I think I'd go and pull the trigger right there. Now you change your offense completely - you have a good OLine, you pair what you have outside with one of those 3 receivers and Phillip Rivers, I think you will have the chance to be a really fun offense to watch. Now you go second round and you have other directions you can go... at that point if there is a QB you like... a developmental QB... you can go that route or you can just go DT that has some real twitch and some upside that can rush. Neville Gallimore from Oklahoma would make some sense there, he has some twitch and real pass rush ability. Jordan Elliot from Missouri  is another name that can come into the mix, another guy that can rush inside. They are in a great spot, I'm just curious to see what they do with the QB position first and foremost. If they decide to stick with JB and want to go towards the draft... at that point and time Jordan Love ... I don't think he's ready to play right away, but man.... that is a huge upside pick. You got a chance to let him develop and have a huge payoff. 
    • If we end up with the same bad QB play this year with the future not being drafted this year yes he will be on the hot seat. If Jacoby is the starter and doesn’t improve but we have the future we draft in April on the team he won’t be on the hot seat. 
    • What's being implied here? Backlash from the media? 
    • They send out surveys and I’ve expressed on them. I don’t know how much control the team has over how the city controls the traffic. They are trying to protect the drunk pedestrians. In the past I’ve had a drunk pedestrian walk into my car!  What they’ve done seems like overkill now. 
    • Are you sure about that?  Last year they were having trouble selling them. I have 5 seats but they are not on the same row. I have 3 on one row and 2 directly in front of those. The guy who owned the seats next to me told me he wasn’t renewing his seats if I wanted them. The usher in my section also told me that many in his section weren’t renewing.   I called after invoices went out last year and his seats we’re still open. I wanted to take 3 of his 4 seats but they wouldn’t let me because they didn’t want to leave the 1 seat. Kind of ticked me off but I get it I guess. There were numerous club seat tickets for sale by the team at face value at every game last year which means no one owned those seats.
