Have the Colts EVER beaten the Steelers?

Recommended Posts

........I know we have but.......In 31 games (regular season & post season) we are 25-6.  Is this the team we have the worst record against?

 

I have been watching random games on youtube just to past the time & the Steeler games are depressing.

Bert Jones was a great QB but didn't play well against the Steelers. A crucial INT here & killer penalty on the 3 yard line

driving for what would have been a winning score were just a couple of the ones I remember. I'm looking for the time 

when we can run off several victories versus the Steelers.

 

                                                                  Just ranting, don't mind the old man here........

Don't remind me of the 2005 season.  Maybe the best Colts team ever. 

 

Trashed the Steelers on a Monday night, with Harrison setting the tone on the first play.

 

...and then...tragedy struck...

Thank you for that. Colts beat NE & Pitt in consecutive weeks. That felt really good to see again.

2 - Texans - They have won the division the past 2 years.   We need to take it back

3 - Titans - We will be competing for the division with them for the next few years

4 - Steelers - They own us

I didn't want to "like" your post, but it's so true.  Harper gets tackled by Ben after an INT, right?  Did Vanderjagt have more than a couple misses all year?  We get a bad call our way, but even that didn't help.  It's like the gods made a deal to ride the Bus.  

 

In all seriousness, Dungy's son was a true tragedy. Much worse than losing a football game.  It's every parents worst nightmare, but Dungy wrote about it in his book, with his usual class and eloquence.

I'm not too worried about it.  I think we are very close to beating them.

Just beating them again is not enough. I want to eliminate them from the post season.  Until I witness my Colts accomplish that I will continue to rage against the black and gold.

I vividly remember that emotional-roller-coaster of a play.

 

I was sitting on the couch with my dad watching the game.  I jumped up off the couch with my arms raised when I thought it was a TD.

 

Then I fell to my knees when I realized it wasn't...

Yeah we had our revenge game against the Pats in the '06 AFCCG to make up for them eliminating us in '03 and '04.  (That 20-3 loss in Foxborough in '04 is still the worst loss for me... that was peak-Peyton breaking Marinos' record and dropping 49 on the Broncos the week before...  :hissy:)

 

We have yet to get revenge on the Steelers in the playoffs.  :flaming:

Man if there was the ability to challenge then.....Kordel Stewart's td when he stepped out of bounds wouldn't have counted.

Oh man. That is by far my most painful memory as a Colts fan. That was the first year I really watched football (I was 10) and I got really really passionate really really fast. For YEARS I was absolutely convinced Aaron caught it and the ref screwed us. Finally, just a couple years ago, I saw a shot I had never seen before that showed the ball on the ground. That took away the feeling of being cheated but also showed how Aaron really could have come up with that catch (so now I feel just as bad but in a different way haha).

The past obviously sucks out loud against this franchise, but that's the past. The future looks as if we will be winning our fare share of games

with Ballard and Reich at their positions.

Yeah. Nadine and I have had a shared hatred for the Steelers for years. Doubt it ever goes away either. 
 

When we beat ‘em in 2008 I thought for sure it was a dream and not real.

 Kordell Stewart running out of back the end zone before catching TD pass.

 

That's what has always stuck with me about that game.

 

And the Coryatt int drop.

We smoked them in 2005 on Monday Night Football, Marvin caught an 80 yard pass from Peyton to start the game. We lost the playoff game to them that season though so that is all people remember.

My rankings are this is going by since 1984:

 

Enemy #1 - Patriots = an easy #1. They were in our division in the AFC East for years, It goes way back. Then the Peyton vs Brady battles. They prevented us from going to the SB in 2003, 2004, and 2014. In 2014, Luck would've been there had it not been for them.

 

Enemy #2 - Steelers = an easy #2. They prevented us from going to the SB in 1995 and 2005.

 

Enemy #3 - Texans = #3. I just listed them because they have won our division the last 4 out 5 years = 2015, 2016, 2018, 2019. We have basically own the Titans so until they build up a resume of 5 years of being good like the Texans have, they are MEH to me. Any team can have 1 fluke season like the Jags did in 2017. The Jags are usually the doormat of the division regarding our division.

 

If you took the Patriots and Steelers out of the equation, we may have won 6 SB's or at least made the SB in reality = 1995, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, and even 2014.

Melvin absolutely SAVED that from being a Steelers win. That is the definition of going down to the wire.

I loved the McAfee  Mathis interview.  Even though it’s a business and guys from different teams are friends, Mathis showed a continued destain for the Pats.  There aren’t many players who spend their entire career with one team and have loyalty like him.

 

I agree with him, the Pats are #1 in my “I hope they lose every game” book.  Every other team in our division is tied for second.  I only care about the other teams when they affect our standings (and obviously when we play them).

Jets??? Chargers were bigger thorns in our side than the Jets. Jaguars in our division have always been a thorn on our side. How many times have we swept them since Luck was drafted? Twice? They played us tough even during the Peyton days (lost to them in 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010 etc.), IMO.

These lists of rivals seem to apply to a team that doesn't exist now. And honestly, the Steelers and Pats teams that we share disdain for are about to not exist as constructed for a good part of the last 15/20 years.

This iteration of the Colts' primary rivals are the Texans and Titans. When (if) they put those badies down, then worrying about the rest of the Conference is cool and it's likely going to be Chiefs that keep the Colts and others from doing anything of note.

 

Stuff like this just reminds me that this team has been in some kind of weird purgatory for a long time now and they managed to squander having an all timer talent at QB doing it.

Not in my world. They beat the Colts in 69 in a game that still creates questions....and elevated Namath to the HOF (So many QB's should be there instead of him). But more painfully, they delivered a 41-0 beat down to the Colts in the playoffs in 2003 that was the hardest game I have ever watched as a Colt fan.

    • Fair enough, but does he really put them into every game or does he hold them back from doing better?  Even in games like against the Chiefs, it was the defense and running attack that won the game.  I know it is said he is protecting the ball, but he makes very few plays as well.  So I personally see no upside for him.  I think at the NFL level when you have a great running attack and defense playing solid, you can win games.    I think Eason would likely throw more interceptions, but also more big plays.  I actually watched every game Eason played in college.  What I am encouraged with him is most big, raw prospects are turnover prone. He isn't.  He doesn't throw that many interceptions and is pretty accurate.  
    • If any of the rookie QB's ball out it will be them.   Taylor might otherwise be in a good position to pick it up if none of the rookie QB's stand out, but his biggest problem is that he's likely going to be at the very least splitting carries with Mack.  So he could have some great runs and post a great yards per attempt but just not make it as the offensive rookie of the year because he won't put up huge huge numbers.   Another player we could look at is Clyde Edwards-Helaire.  Drafted in the 1st by KC.  I don't know how good KC's OL is but working next to Mahomes is going to open up a lot of lanes for any RB.  So I'd consider him a candidate as well. 
    • You think I don’t know what round Eason was picked?    I’m not predicting Eason is cut and signed back to the PS.  I’m only saying it’s possible.   That’s why I said 50-50.
    • This is my point.  There is no guarantee he would stay here. He may end up on the PS. I just think it’s a small chance. With covid we can afford to keep him on the 53 with the new PS rules. It really just depends how he looks in practice. If he looks average maybe they put him there. If he looks fantastic they probably keep him on the 53.
    • Actually he's missing the point slightly . . . you risk them being picked up on waivers.  We cut Easton any team that had interest in him before the draft could pick him up on waivers.  A lot of teams had interest in him.  This is a 4th round pick not a 7th.   Kelly could potentially clear waivers.  Easton is almost certain to be picked up on waivers.
