There is 0 chance the colts beat the saints in New Orleans. 0, none, nada, not going to happen.

I think he's got the potential to be our long term kicker.  He's a rookie and he could improve along the way, especially in the off season and will come out next season in clutch situations and drills it.

No one opened the thread or mention what a game by Maniac? Also what did everyone think about new Kicker. 

Leonard was awesome. 
 

Chase did a good job. Not perfect, but good. He should be our kicker for the rest of this season.

Especially when you can’t even beat the Bucs on the road.

We aren’t beating the Saints so that dream ends there.

If the Colts lose this week they are officially eliminated, but If the Colts win out they have a 19% chance of making the playoffs.  

That will increase a bit if they beat the Saints.  

I think they are done, but I'm not hoping they lose yet.  The Texans and Titans might split which would allow us to get in the division hunt.

I could see the Texans and titans splitting and the titans losing to the saints. I can see the other teams helping us more then us winning 3 straight games. If all three teams finish at 9-7 colts win the division I believe . I just don’t see the colts winning three straight.

No they don't cause Houston and Tennessee beat us so they own the tiebreaker.

We split with Houston and Tenn so it would be a comparison of common opponents, I think...

Truth, though watch us play man for no reason and keep it close. Our season is one big irony...

Houston plays Tampa and the titans play the saints. Seeing Texans and titans split and them losing to Tampa and the saints is very possible. I just don’t see us winning three in a row. Especially when one is the saints.

    The Saints are banged up on defense. The ONLY way the Colts can beat them is to keep Brees on the sideline by running the &$*% ball and playing great defense, like they did in KC.

    The Colts still have a shot at the wildcard too, if Pittsburg losses 3, Tenn loses 2 and Oakland loses a game.

      But they’d still have to win 3.

If the odds are stated to be 19% if we win out , why would that increase if we beat the Saints ? Other words , if we win out .. it's a 19% chance. It doesn't "increase" if we win Monday.

There should be another forum created for all the negative posters. It has been rough reading all the posts for a couple weeks now.......

It wouldn't last 10 minutes before it would be hijacked by negative posters.

The Colts would win the Division (if all are 9-7 and Texans/Titans split), because they would be 4-2 in the Division.

    • Mm.  Thing is, 'improvement' doesn't necessarily mean "becomes insanely good at this thing."  In Brissett's case, and many other second tier QBs, improvement happens when you find a scheme that's a fit for what he can do and minimizes the issues he struggles with.   The problem with that comes when a player has a fatal flaw.  Something that will seriously hold you back no matter what scheme you're in.    The good news is that you can probably scheme around a QB who holds onto the ball too long, especially if you can isolate and mitigate the cause.  It's an issue, but not a fatal one.  Brissett could, in theory, be worked with.  Not to magically make him accurate at long range or turn him into Drew Brees, but at least get him to the point where even with these issues, we can advance the ball downfield.   This compared to Jameis Winston, whose fatal flaw is the inability to read a defense and whose instinct is to throw and hope rather than read and respond.  That's how I see his issues lying, and I wouldn't touch that guy with a 10 foot pole because it speaks to a player who is stubborn, headstrong and not nearly as intelligent as he thinks he is.   I've said this before in this thread but I'd rather have a quarterback whose biggest flaw is he tries too hard to avoid turnovers, than have to coach a QB at the highest professional level how to think a pass when it's clear he'd been coasting on talent and never learned.  You can coach an overcautious QB, or find him WRs he can synergize with.  An overaggressive QB is much harder to train, especially if they had great success at lower levels.
    • normally i say the same thing but QBs are different imo.  we may never find a good qb if they go bpa every year    what if we keep picking in the 10-20 range? there will never be a sure thing QB at those spots 
    • Like games against the Raiders, Chiefs, second game against the Texans, both games against the Jaguars, Saints, and Panthers. The Titans and the Bucs games he was terrible after halftime and couldn’t make the passes needed. That’s 10 games out of 15 games he was below average or terrible.
    • In this example, both Brown and Kinlaw are off the board.  Drafting by position only is a terrible strategy.  Get good players.  Of course there are higher priority needs, but if the players for that position aren't there and you get can get a possible blue chip prospect at 13 (!) I don't know why you would dismiss it.
