Ok, What really do you think if the season goes forward as it is now do we have a chance to compete, for the Super Bowl?


Recommended Posts

I know there is a lot of uncertainties, with this years, season, but if it stands as it is now, Do you think that we could be competitive as we are now as a team?  Or do you think that we will just be a stepping stone for some other team?

10-15% of making the SB. 5-10% chance of winning it.

 

Should win the division easy and make the playoffs. The rest will depend on matchups, injuries, and some luck.

It would be very frustrating if we tanked, I think we made some pretty good moves/trades for the upcoming season. I was also browsing through our schedule the other day and I felt like we could win a lot of those match ups. Actually looking at the schedule made me feel better about our chances to have a winning record, I was “iffy” at first but now I’m going in with my chest puffed up!

I think based on your second statement those top percentages are a little higher, not substantially or anything. Get to playoffs anything can happen.

 

I think we have a very good chance this year, as has been stated in thread so far. Need things to fall our way, but every team needs thing to fall their way.

 

Should be a fun year, hopefully we just get to start and finish it.

I think there’s about 10-12 teams every year that have a chance to win the super bowl and I believe were very close to the top ten if not inside the top 10 so I would say we have just as much chance as the rest of the league.

I'm not that confident.    I think the Colts "could" win 12 games, but there is too much unknown at this point.  The Titans may be a very good team to contend with.   Houston can also win 9-11 games.

There are always big "ifs".  They're primarily the same for every team in the top half of their conference, and I think the colts are close to being a top 5-8 AFC squad.

 

If we stay healthy, if we get hot at the right time, if we get home field advantage, if Rivers can hold his own (maybe steal a couple wins), if our young players make the leap......

 

If those things fall into place,  I like the colts chances of winning the division (no cake walk), so naturally I believe they have a chance to compete for a superbowl.

 

Ultimately it comes down to executing closer to the ceiling than the floor,  it's why they play the games.

It could be like the strike year

That's an accurate statement, IMO.  Much like the strike year, the conditions could be different this year in that the winners and losers are separated by how well they adjust, not so much how they would have played under normal conditions.

 

Having said that, I think the NFL will try to keep the season as normal as possible on the field, with the adjustments coming from the stadium activity.  Unlike MLB for example.

I think we have a good core on both sides of the ball.  Things I will be looking for:

 

WR growth.  Quite a few questions there.

Will Rivers take care of the ball.

Getting pressure on opponents QB.

 

I think our running game will be good and if the defense grows a bit from last year we could be in the hunt.

You can go a long way in this league with a strong run game, a solid QB using play action behind it, and a stout defense.

 

For the Colts it looks like they have everything you want on offense to do that, so their season is going to come down to the defense I think.  In 2019 they finished 18th in points against which isn't good enough.  But for 2020 I'd say the defense should improve and the offense should also improve.

 

So just on paper and all that but right now they look like a contender to me.

Would like to see that points against around 10th.  That would be a significant improvement.

the odds are -110, you would get the 100 back plus 90 more for 190 total

 

someone made a 10k$ bet on the colts to win the super bowl this year according to the media, they will get 460k if that happens lol

It could go ether way, But if everything  falls into place we seem that we could have a  breakout year , baring injuries'. I  always  disliked  Phillip Rivers when he played for the Chargers , only because he seemed to have our number. in winning against us. But now I hope he is someone who can solidify his legacy now.  I hope we can now make his career a hall of fame one now.

IOur running game has to setup our passing attack. I’m more interested in the defense. We finally have all the correct piece we need. We also have depth. We can compete with any team. I’ve liked what you’ve alluded too.

8.5 is a low number, I figured it would be 9.5. To me 8.5 is a no brainer, I would bet the over. 9.5 makes you think you a little.

    • I tend to disagree here.  Have all the guys you mentioned had better seasons than Rivers?  Yes.  Have more than 4 done it in the same year? Aside from last year, I think not (admittedly, part of that is due to the other guys being injured for long stretches of time).     Rivers has also had seasons where he was better, at least statistically, than all of the guys mentioned here.  In 2008 he led the league in passer rating and tied for lead with Brees for TDs (Brees had more yards, but also threw almost 200 more attempts and still had the same amount of TDs and a lower passer rating), that is one example where Rivers was either the best or 2nd best QB in the league for a season.  He's had other seasons where he has led the league in passing or completion percentage.     I'm not saying he's better than Peyton, Brady or Brees (the 3 guys with the best stats in NFL history)... but aside from winning SBs, he's put up better numbers than Big Ben throughout his career, he's thrown for >4,000 yards 11 times (Wilson has done it 3 times), and if he retired this year, Rodgers would likely have to play at least 3 full seasons at a high level to touch Rivers' numbers (Rodgers has 2 MVPs and the best passer rating of all-time, so he won't need to do that to get in anyway).   I do see your point... when Rivers retires he won't be considered the 'top' QB of his era.. but he's played through several waves of very solid QBs (Peyton, Brady, Brees were already established when Rivers got here -- Eli and Ben had 2 years under their belt before Rivers took the reigns from Brees, even though Rivers was drafted the same time of them), then guys like Rodgers (got to start 1 or 2 years after Rivers due to sitting on the bench behind Favre), Wilson, Luck, Newton, and now Mahommes, Burrows, Lamar Jackson, etc. have entered the league after  Rivers got started... regardless, he's been a top 10 QB through all of it, while never playing under a HOF coach or on an elite team (with the exception of 2012 and 2019).  So in 14 seasons as a starter, he's been in the top 10 on 12 occasions, and out of those 12, I think he's been at 5 or higher at least 50% of the time.
