What rivalry?  U mean Tennessee snd the Colts? I see one organization hitting on their picks and acquisitions and another not.  

Sorry brother, but if you can't relish the downfall of the Pat's dynasty, and continue to hate on our hometown team, you sir, have issues, which, i'm sorry to say, this forum is not the solution.

Well it does not bold well when Ballard said JB our QB right now. Basically he is saying JB our guy no matter what and I can sense the colts are not going to draft a QB in the draft but sign some aweful back up

Thank you to the Tennessee Titans.  You done something my Colts team's were never able to do.

The rivalry is over, but the new rivalry begins.

 

We did it.

 

 

Just not in NE.  More satisfying at home, TBH.

I totally agree, but he is being honest, JB is our QB right now, but we have no idea what will happen in the off season.  Lots of options, FA signing, draft, next QB currently on roster?  Ballard was hired to do a job, so far I think he has done a good job, but it is up to him to put the best product on the field.

 

This off season will define whether CB is who he is, and make the moves it takes to get us to the top, or become just another boy genius GM with a failed plan.

Why relish the Pats downfall?  So we just had to wait 20 years for their players and coaches to age out??  They may have done some under handed things, which other organizations have done but just not get caught, but they have made the rest of the NFL teams look like a joke with their success.  It is so easy to dislike them because of their success. Thier coaches r on another level.  Here in Colts land we just run the same defensive game plan week after weeek after week. Then when it doesn't work, we blame it on the young players.  It's been 2 years and the D is getting worse. The pats game plan changes week to week. They r to b admired not scorned.

Imagine cheering for a divisional foe. There is no reason to even care about the Patriots. It’s been 10 years. It’s not a rivalry. The Colts have not even competed in a game against them since Manning was here.

The Titans finished 9-7 in 2018 and 9-7 in 2019, the difference this year was the Colts didn't have Andrew Luck. The Titans aren't suddenly a super power because they knocked off a team with a really bad and ineffective offense. Give the Titans credit though, they were able to take advantage of another teams misfortune(Luck retiring).

I completely agree with this. I feel that the Titans (and Texans to a degree) have been somewhat overrated all season, no disrespect to them and how far they have gotten.  But I think both the Texans and Titans have been able to take advantage of our misfortune, and that is no fault of theirs, it is on the Colts for not being able to adjust and still control our division despite Luck. Not saying that either team does not have strengths on their side, but... most can agree that if Luck was still our QB, the story of the AFC South this season would likely have played out differently.

 

All this hype over the Titans and Texans will make things very interesting in our division come next season though. They will both come into the season feeling very good about their performance this year, and feeling very confident they can continue to run the division with the weapons they have. It will be our job to knock both teams back in their place. I know a lot of fans do not think we will be able to get that done for several years, and I understand why they feel that way, but I am hopeful!

The Colts beat the Texans twice in 2018 with Luck under center and dominated the Titans twice in 2018(neither game was even remotely competitive) we are just having an average qb away from dominating those 2 teams right now. The pessimism on this forum is mindnumbing.

FreenyFan - I think you meant to say “bode well”, not “bold”. Unless you are trying to bold or darken a font. 
CB said the “jury is out” on JB. He will address the position, and I wouldn’t speculate what they will do, particularly with regards to FA. I would  find more validity in the Colts writers who are closer to the situation and sources (i.e. Keefer or Holder). They both believe a veteran is off the table and CB will likely address in the draft.

Not just our misfortune but the jags have QB problems too, if foles stayed healthy they look like the stronger team in the division. 

 

Watch out, if the colts and jags get a good QB in the draft the AFC south will get shaken up. What a great time to be a football fan for teams in a competitive AFC south, two of the final four teams in the AFC playoffs are from our division. Man that feels great to say.

Yep, definitely! :yahoo:Nothing like competition to get the juices flowing. COME ON Blue, time to step it up next season, that King of the South title will not simply be “handed” to us off the backs off bad division teams. We have to take it! :rock:

We played no qbs last year.  Go back and look at the schedule.  I said it before the season started that we would see the talent level on this team with Luck's departure.  I also said we would see how good this D really was as we were going to see better qbs. We r 31st in completion pdrcentage. But yes u can blame it on youth and not on the talent and/or scheme. Keep your head in the sand

I am not getting all the rah rah for other AFC South foes. I get we all enjoyed the Patriots getting beat , but beyond that, I’m not wishing any division rival well. As a AFC North guy, I’m certainly not wishing the Steelers, Bengals, or Browns well. I would prefer to have the Patriots situation these last 20 years, where your division rivals stink, and you have a shoo in to the division title, home playoff games, and the # 1 seed.

Brady's last pass at home was a pick six means nothing after he ruled the AFC for decades. His post game chat showed the man has class and cool.

Now for the Texans/Chiefs: After watching Watson get hammered by the Titans pass rush he should play sick for the Chiefs game because their D will chew him up and spit him up.

Im guessing you mean Bills pass rush.   The chiefs defense isn't nearly as good as the Bills

Agree with a lot of this! I too enjoyed the Patriots getting beat, but mainly because I was tired of seeing them in the SB and wanted them out of the running as soon as possible. But had the Titans lost yesterday, I would not have been upset at all (just moved on and wished for the Pats demise in the next game). I was also rooting for the Bills, no disrespect to the Texans but I will never root for them ever!

I know some fans choose to cheer for the teams from their division and/or conference once their team is actually out, feeling in some way it’s still a representation of who they side with - and that’s their right, I have nothing negative to say about it. But my cheering on the AFC South for division fandom alone will always start and stop with the COLTS!

(Side note: I do enjoy the healthy competition coming our way in the AFC South next season now that the other teams have stepped up their game though, time for the Colts to write a new story of overcoming adversity!)

At the beginning of the season I said Titans are not a good team I now have no problem eating crow and humbly congratulating them they just went out and did what nobody other than the eagles could do for the last 8 years I show them respect for once anyway but come prepared next year Titans next year we are coming for you and Houston.

His play as the season went on improved.  I still think he is a liability in the run game. I am just not a fan of this D at all.  I feel it is very out dated in today's game.  With the level of scheming by the offenses today, I just  dont think u  can one defensive scheme 80% and hope to b successful.  Plus we r under sized. Everybody is on Eberflus but it is the defense that Ballard wants.  To change it now would mean drafting a different type of player.  So,  I think we r going to run this D for the long haul.  Sigh.  Like I said everybody is dumping on Brissett.  However more concerning to me is the D scheme and talent.

I don’t mind healthy competition , but for the Raven’s , it’s a constant fist fight for the division with the Steelers. Then , the Bengals were pretty strong for a decade under Marvin Lewis. The difficulty of the division has caused us to be on the road during most of the franchise playoff history. The fact that the Ravens have won two Super Bowls is a miracle , with the hard road they have had.

Four times we’ve had to go to NE in the playoffs, while NE had coasted to division titles , top seeds, and home playoff games. I guess that is my take on the division rival situation , and I guess my opinion is tainted dealing with the Steelers all the time.

    • FWIW I thought this from last weeks mail bag was funny because it seems to support what both you and I are saying.  If what I understand your point being is the dline including Buckner played similarly well both games and my belief that 3techs don’t need to record sacks and tfls to be dominant. : “I can understand why fans who watched last Sunday's opener against the Jaguars, and then checked out the box score afterwards, might come away with the conclusion that DeForest Buckner didn't have much of an impact on the game. After all, the Colts traded away their 13th-overall pick in this year's NFL Draft to acquire Buckner, and then immediately handed him a huge contract extension, so expectations are high. I get that. But looking back at the film, I think what's evident is Buckner deserves a little bit more credit beyond his stat-sheet line of six tackles (one for a loss). As the defensive line started to gel in the second half — that's when it limited Jacksonville to six combined rushing yards and had three of its four sacks — you began to feel Buckner much more consistently, and the attention placed on him allowed for others (I thought linebacker Bobby Okereke was fantastic in the second half) to make plays. Buckner also had the eighth-best week among all NFL interior defensive linemen in run stop win rate in Week 1, according to ESPN. Now, moving forward, of course you want to see more of those impact-type plays out of Buckner — sacks, big run stuffs, forced fumbles, defensive touchdowns, etc. But I think it's also important to to remember there are other ways for the three-tech to impact the game, and Buckner did a pretty good job of that last Sunday.”  
    • I’m a little surprised you don’t see a difference in dline play between  the two games.  I don’t have access to any of the services but I would suspect that The grades are significantly higher for the dline in Sunday compared to the Jax game.   but Sunday was even more dominant than i thought, and I thought it was dominant.  Between the opening drive during which MN gained 75 and scored a FG and their last meaningless drive for 75 yds and a TD, the Colts gave up a total of 25 other yds.    against Jax, we gave up around 60 yds rushing in the 1st half and the dline looked less than dominant then imo.  Jax had 5 of 8 drives during which they scored if you throw out the kneel downs at the end of each half.   Percentage of  tackles and sacks for linemen were very similar in both games.  You said that colts had more pressures during the mn game and I said probably a function of Jax short passing attack.   buckner had 6 tackles v Jax and 3 v mn.  He had no sacks v Jax but 1.5 tfl.  He had 1.5 sacks v mn but no other tfl.  Statistically counting sacks, tackles, and tfl he was “better” V Jax.  But you probably don’t think He was better Iwould suspect.   i would be shocked if the dline didn’t grade out higher v. Mn than Jax even though the tackles, tfl, and sacks were very similar over all.   im sure teams keep advanced stats that show a clearer pic of when a d lineman wins or loses on each Play that doesn’t necessarily match easier to see stats like tackles, etc.   do you have access to the grades?  I’d really be interested in the units grades in the two games.   i agree there can be other factors like obviously opponent strength and the play of LBs and dbs.  And mn looks like they might suck pretty bad surprisingly to me.  I think the main problem with lasts weeks game imo is the LBs are weak in coverage and Indy is as a result susceptible to short passing attacks.     that being said, rarely do dlines dominate the LOs like the colts did.   i maintain that a guy like Buckner and dts in general could have nit recorded a sack, had only a couple of tackles and be more dominant than In a game where he recorded a few tackles and a couple of sacks.
