Colts and Steelers 2005 Divisional


Recommended Posts

If, Nick Harper had of broke right instead of left, does he score?

 

I thought he would’ve. 
 

Needless to say, I wasn’t right for a week after that game. The best team didn’t make it to the SB.

Just saw the replay on FB and news is slow. 
 

Would like it deleted?

Perhaps the most painful playoff loss of the Manning era.  2005 should have been a Super Bowl for the Colts.  We were a better team than Pittsburgh.  After 2005, I questioned if Peyton and the Colts would ever break through for a Lombardi.  At least we cashed in the following season.  Made finally winning it all that much sweeter.

3rd and 4 pass is incomplete but Marlin Jackson got a facemask:tvsmash: 
1st and goal at the 9 and only gained 2 yards. Didn’t Dallas Clark drop the last 4th down play?

After looking back I think the Steelers and the Colts just switched years in the super bowl.

We had a better team in 2006 than the Steelers but I think they had a better team in 2007 than we did.

I might be wrong but I don't remember Pittsburgh making the playoffs the year the Colts won the Super Bowl.  I remember San Diego having the best record in the AFC that year and New England upsetting them in the Divisional Round to face the Colts in the AFC Championship Game.  I recall the Colts going though Kansas City, Baltimore and New England to reach the Super Bowl.

The Steelers went 10-6 with losses to the Cards, Broncos, Jets in overtime, Patriots, Jags and the Ravens. They did play a first place schedule. 

The lost to a 11-5 Jag team that was hot at the time who had lost only two games in their last 8 games.

That 2005 team was the best Colts team ever, IMO.  I think Dungy's son committing suicide jsut weeks before the playoffs really effected not only the coaching staff but the entire team.

 

Also, remember, Harper had just been stabbed in the right knee a few days before the game, he may not have he could have cut (for lack of a better word) the other way.

Yeah would have won that game had the Colts offense completely laid an egg. I always hated the bye week. 

 

Yeah I agree. The first  half was awful AND THEN very late in the game manning is trying long passes in the endzone instead of getting it closer to at least make the FG closer. I remember when Vandy attempted  the FG we still had 3 timeouts left! And that kick? I swear it looked like it was attempted with a lopsided knuckle ball or something. The 2nd worst kick I ever seen. Lol

Ok gothca.  So they were a pretty good team that just missed the playoffs the year the Colts won it all?  I think that rings a bell now.  That season  I was probably happy that the Steelers didn't make it since they historically own the Colts.  lol    Things fell right for us in 06-07.

    • You just basically repeated what I’ve been saying for weeks about Wisco.  Thanks.   beng from Wisco is a negative predicter of an effective nfl rusher too.   it is also my dispassionate analysis that this years line is quite. Bit better than the one Mack stated behind and that his 3.8 almost certainly would have been better with a better line.
    • Don’t be so emotional Estreet.  We are analyzing here.  I said right now.   I don’t understand why JT is getting the Brisett treatment this year.   the narrative in the echo chamber here is the line sucks, Reich sucks, rivers sucks, the receivers suck and that’s why we don’t run well.  seems far fetched.  JT will be a useful pro but I think he will have limitations and will need a complimentary back
    • A team could skip a year here and there...and of course it’s dependent on the draft class as well (especially for which round a WR is taken). But in the course of a 5-year stretch...it should take 4 early WRs picks to build a truly strong corps...unless the first 3 are all HRs...and then you decide to pay them.   But that’s pretty unlikely. Even PIT...who has a great trio...missed on a few. But by drafting so many WRs...they can potentially move on from JuJu...which will save a lot of cap space.   Of course there are also trades for established talent...so that would just replace the need to draft one for that given year...ala Hopkins in ARI.    I would consider WR to be 3 of the starting 22...if that team runs 1-1 sets 2/3 or greater of the time. But 4-5 are getting good snaps typically.    All of this is to say...WR is a position I value highly.     
    • The team doesn't deserve it though. Despite all these weaknesses you claim the Colts have the bottom line is the Colts are  4 - 2 and still in the race for the playoffs.   I know every single team has weaknesses and its how you adapt to those that make you a good team.   Not every team is gonna be in win now mode like the Bucs this year.    Ballard going after Rivers wasn't that! He saw a guy who could possibly be an overall upgrade over Brissett and went with it but also made upgrades in the draft that have been fantastic so far in Taylor and Blackmon. Pittman will return and catch up soon! Eason is developing well too for 21'    The point is Colts are making adjustments for the present as well as the future but sometimes the value takes time. Patience is the biggest key here.
