AFC playoff picture


Recommended Posts

We are six games in and the playoff teams are starting separate themselves.  It’s going to be hard to make it in the AFC this year.  I think they break down like this:

 

Locks

Chiefs

 

Close to a lock

Titans

Ravens

Steelers

 

Feeling Good

Bills

 

More Likely than not

Browns

 

Race for the last spot

Pats
Raiders

Colts
 

Not Dead Yet

Broncos
Dolphins

 

Better Luck next year

Chargers

Texans

Jags

Bengals

 

we are drafting Lawerence

Jets

I am on vacation now for 10 days - enjoying the W going into a bye week.

This for sure.  We frequently look at the season with a global view.  But how often does it happen that one of the top teams loses a couple of key players and then suddenly they look very beatable?  L

the Ravens titans packers titans stretch is gonna be brutal.

If the Colts can get one of those (probably Packers or Titans at home most likely) I’ll be happy.  If they could get two I’d be thrilled.  What they can’t do is go 0-4 in that stretch. That means they have to win out in the other games to go 10-6 and with the Texans twice, at the Steelers, and the Raiders that’s not likely.

my guess is we drop 2 of those and then one more against either the raiders or steelers and then maybe a loss at Houston. That's 10-6.

hopefully its the Titans twice

I think the Ravens aren’t as bad of a match up for the Colts as it first appears.  I am more scared of the Raiders and Steelers to be honest.  Also the Packers defense is not good.  If Rivers can play like he did today in that one he might be able to win a shoot out vs the Packers at home.

Yea we made the Bengals, Browns and Jaguars look good. The top tier teams are steamrolling these same teams. The second half is looking scary for sure. I have been a Rivers hater from the day we signed him but one thing he has going for him is he plays very well in Nov and Dec. Heres hoping that continues because we play a lot of really good looking teams

Actually Raiders should be in the Lock because they beat the Chiefs

Patriots are 2-4... with some pretty tough games coming up too. They’re in the try again next year group

Nah I think they are in the hunt of it.  I am not counting BB out until they are eliminated.  I didn’t like Brady and feel he got a lot of praise he didn’t deserve but BB is the real deal.

That was Eli that went back to school...

Look it up Peyton did as well.

well you stated playoff picture then you had the chiefs a dead lock but they lost to the Raiders so how are they a lock?

Because I think the chiefs go 13-3 12-4 at worst.  I think the raiders go 11-5 at best but probably more likely to be 10-6 maybe 9-7.

You’re right. I’d forgotten about that

If Rivers plays like he did today the Colts will have a chance in that game.  The Packers also don’t play well in Indy they haven’t won here since the 80’s or early 90’s.  Granted they only come once every 8 years.

We beat a very good Bears team quite handily, Leonard will be back after the break and perhaps Turay as well.

They beat the Bears by one position.  That’s not handily.  
 

Getting those guys back will help for sure and they will need them because after the Lions the Colts play a murders row of teams the rest of the way.  The Titans twice, Texans twice, Ravens, Raiders, Packers, and Steelers.  They do get the Jags at home to end the year but given the Colts recent history vs the Jags that’s not a sure thing.

Because the Bears scored a garbage time TD with 1:35 left.

 

He thoroughly handled the Bears.

News flash:  Colts aren't perfect.  Neither is any other AFC team.  The only thing that matters is for them to finish in the top 7 and be playing well near the end of the season.  Then you see what happens in a single-elim tourney.

    • I would not be surprised if we draft his latest project at CB on the 3rd day of the draft.....  Shemar Jean-Charles   "2020: First-team All-American by Walter Camp Football Foundation (first FBS first-team All-American in school history) ... Second-team All-American and the Sun Belt Player of the Year by PFF College … Second-team All-American by Sporting News and third-team All-American via Phil Steele ... Semifinalist for the Bednarik Award (nation’s top defender) and Thorpe Award (nation’s top defensive back) … First-team All-Sun Belt … Led nation as a senior with 16 PBUs and 17 passes defended (with one interception) in 12 games as a senior … Started all 12 games at cornerback and intercepted a pass at Texas State … Recorded 37 tackles, tying a career high of eight against Charlotte and posting six more against Arkansas State … ESPN’s No. 3 breakout player in 2020 (behind BYU QB Zach Wilson and Alabama QB Mac Jones) … According to PFF, had the rare accomplishment of recording a higher forced incompletion rate (34.6%) than catch rate allowed (32.7%) ... Targeted 35 times in single coverage and allowed only five catches while forcing 18 incompletions, according to PFF … Part of a tandem with Shaun Jolly, helped App State have the best CB tandem in college according to PFF College, as the Mountaineers had an FBS-leading 74 passes defended … Part of only FBS team that allowed its opponents to complete less than 50 percent of its passes (47.9 percent) … During regular season, second in the FBS in yards per coverage snap allowed on the outside … PFF College’s national Defensive MVP of the Week after recording a career-high four pass breakups, eight tackles and one forced fumble against Charlotte … Recorded three PBUs at ULM and two apiece against Marshall, Campbell and Louisiana."
    • I sat in endzone couple times.  It's nice when the offense is coming toward you inside the RedZone....but can't say I liked it when the offense is moving away from you on opposite side of field over 100 yards away.   But I did see Andre Rison's TD vs dolphins in Miami. We were in endzone and colts were driving toward us and rison scored a TD that was voted Top 100 TD's ever, I think. And we saw it in  person not too far away from our seats.   I think I seen another top 100 td, but can't remember for sure, lol. I think it was a Ricky Williams run?  Such a long time ago 
    • Pundits as far as my recollection has always referred to the media folks.....wow, a lot of folks in an uproar over nothing!   And I have a job as well......   Something more meaningful to complain about? I was poking fun. But since you brought it up......how about this new Equality Act? What is your stance on biologically born men transitioning to women (sorta) and competing in women's sports programs? Is that meaningful enough for you? Or how about the new Stimulus Bill that gives roughly 9% of it's money (out of 1.9 Trillion) to actual COVID related concerns? Not counting Federal Employees being EXTRA EXTRA stimulated if they have the 'unfortunate circumstance' of having to stay at home with their children whilst the rest of American "civilian" families lose jobs, get furloughed, laid off, quit/fired or whatever form of no longer working you want to call it.....Is that meaningful enough? Never mind......wrong forum....   By the way, I clearly said "Pundits" in both the title and the body of the OP and asked if anyone has heard or seen some other funny ones????? Media - it was clearly stated in the Title and in the body of the OP......
    • Yup. This was a good exercise to get folks thinking. I think the best time to do a board mock is a few weeks before the draft, after a lot of the FA dominos has tumbled. I almost did a flash mock last year the week before draft. Short clock, and perhaps scheduled windows
