speaking of cowboys they might win division this year at 5 - 11   

Leave me alone!   Browns - 28 Colts - 24

24-20 colts......Rivers tossing 3 in the redzone.  Mo, Pascal, Hines.

We will win as long as we do a good job against the run. Shut it down in total or at least get enough stops that end in field goals. Concentrate on Beckam and make them win with their other less explosive guys. Rhodes and some help can handle Beckham and Kenny Moore shouldnt have an issue with Landry. So far I havent seen us have an issue with Tight ends and just in general we havent given up the deep ball. Beckham is the primary and i believe only deep threat. Im expecting we will pick Mayfield off at least once or twice.

 

 Offensively I think we should have no problems moving the football. They arent the Bears D. I think we need about 3 TD and maybe 1 to 2 field goals to put the wraps on them. My gut tells me we are going to be more prepared than this young team. Thats ultimately what will make the difference.

 

28-17 Colts

Wasn’t Leonard out the entire second half against the Bears?  The D still performed well. 
 

Groin injuries can linger and affect a player all season. I would prefer he rest it through the bye. I doubt he will be very effective if he plays. 
 

AC’s PFF rating is 63.6 so far. If injured, his performance could be worse. Do we think it would be a dramatic drop off if he doesn’t start? 
 

Browns are also banged up. 
 

I like the Colts in a relatively high-scoring game but think it will come down to turnovers. Browns are currently #1 in turnover differential and have recovered a whopping 6 fumbles. Fortunately JT is great with ball protection!

Leonard was running on the side today with trainers. Okereke was back at practice with a club. Walker though was not at practice. AC still not practicing. I think we are about to see what Clark is made of. Going to need great blocking from WR and TE along with a great run game Sunday.

The way the ESPN NFL Live crew worded it yesterday it seemed like he was. I hope he isn't. 

He had a video interview today and they asked asked him how was he feeling and could he play Sunday? And he said he could play Sunday without practice this week....we'll see tho

My Predictions

 

Defense:

-Lockdown Odell

-Pressure Mayfield

-Slow down (or stop) the run game

 

Offense:

-Drive down the field with several good passes and some decent runs

-Sputter in red zone, kick FGs

 

Colts 17, Browns 13

 

We need WRs badly

28 - 24 Browns.
 

Phillip Rivers throws an INT and gives up a FF. The Colts Defense forces punts early but turnovers allow Browns to go on a run.

 

I hope I’m wrong but just have a feeling. Who knows maybe our defense is the real deal and we show we’re a playoff team with the W.

    • I would change the outcome of the 2009 SB Vs the Saints. There's stuff that could of been more important to us long-term (like Luck staying with the team til he was 40, or Grigson never being hired with Luck), but that SB and winning it would of meant more to this franchise at that point and would of made all the Luck years and the unfortunate ending to it a lot more bearable.    Manning winning two SBs in Indy and then making two and winning one in Denver would of probably made him the 2nd best QB of all time without a doubt, and it would of helped fans get over all the times the Pats won the SB while Manning was the QB in Indy. The difference between 1 SB win and two in Indy is huge, and the difference between two SB wins and three in Manning's career would of been huge.
    • Saw this on Reddit and thought it was interesting    Mine would be 2005 AFC Divisional Round loss to Steelers    That loss still kills me...   This can be anything btw A game A player An injury A preferred draftee
    • I'll pile on you here. Ballard has put together a great team since taking over in 2017. We lost Luck (I blame a combination of Grigson and Luck himself for this), and that ruined 2019 and stunted our growth in 2020 with a one-year stopgap in Rivers. We have Wentz now. He's 28 years old. We'll get a decade out of him to compete if he's above-average or better. He has the chemistry with Reich.   Remember, if Ballard hadn't built a solid team before getting Wentz after Luck retired, we'd be back to 2012. However, because Ballard did the foundation first, we can now try and compete again for a decade with Wentz immediately. We have a few weaknesses, but we have the draft and the rest of the offseason to fill them. We do need to improve our DEs. We can still sign Houston back and/or draft an EDGE in the first two rounds. CBs we re-signed Rhodes and Carrie, and Ballard has shown interest in Newsome, Farley, and Asante Samuel. We could easily take a CB at 21, or trade down and get one. We will get a couple starters out of the draft.    I wanted an EDGE too, and thought it was a mistake to sign Hilton back and not an EDGE in FA, but we have to re-sign our own as well, and a 5 year deal to an EDGE for 12-15 million a year will take away money short and long-term. We have a reduced salary cap this year. The rest of that money will go towards draft picks, offseason depth signings after the draft and UDFA's, and Braden Smith, Darius Leonard, and Quenton Nelson.
    • I believe he was. However, this is like year 2 of Tell's contract and development, so bringing Carrie back will give him an additional year to develop. Maybe he makes the team, maybe he gets placed on the practice squad. I have a feeling he isn't going to be expected to play too much this year unless he proves it in OTA's and preseason, or unless there are a couple injuries.    Plus, Kenny Moore plays slot and TJ Carrie is a backup slot CB. So if Moore is specifically hurt, Carrie could probably fill in Moore's spot 75% as good as he could. That alone is worth $2 million this year.
