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

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.

 

Nobody is pointing out that we play them in December. Our schedule is tougher but a win there is pretty big .

Beating the raiders could be huge.  I think there is a real chance the last playoff spot in the AFC comes down to the Colts and Raiders and that tie breaker could be the difference.

That game could have major impact

The thing is what a team did last week (or a few game ago) or what you think they might do down the road has little bearing from week to week. 

Just this week the so called Paper Tigers sent Rogers to the bench for being ineffective with a rating of 35.4.

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

They are actually 2-3 at this point.   They also get the Jets 2 games going forward.   At least they have already had their bye week.

As of now I have us going 9‐7 and even feel like I'm being sort of optimistic. That definitely won't be enough for the division and very likely not enough for a wildcard spot. I hope I'm wrong it's just that I need to see us take these dominant halfs and turn them into full games. We are going to need to beat some great teams 3-4 times from here on out to have a good chance. Less than that and we are in trouble. If we beat the Lions like I think we can manage we might go into the second half of the season with some dejavu at 5-2, but with a chance to lose many after that. If we can beat the Lions then win two more before our first Texans game then I'll feel better as I think 10-6 is much more likely after that.

AFC North will beat each other up and I’m thinking the Chiefs and Titans get the Top 2 seeds in the AFC, in some order. The AFC North winner gets the #3 seed and the AFC East winner gets the #4 seed.

Whoever loses North will most likely be 5th seed probably playing the Bills

vs Jets, Vikings, Bengals. 3 of the 4 or 5 worst teams in the league.

Yep. We are going to get beat by the Ravens, packers, twice by the titans, split with the Texans and then the Steelers. So an 8-8 season and maybe worse bc imo the Lions and raiders games could go either way. Just don't think this Colts team is good enough to beat the top tier teams and it's a toss-up with mediocre to bad teams.

You could be right, but the certainty with which you talk is a bit premature and lacks the fragility of how the league frequently pans out.

We will sweep the Texans and split with Titans so 10-6 is the probability. Titans are overrated, they won't beat us here.

Yes. Completely agree. 
 

To me playoff talk is pointless until December. 
 

I have a buddy in Nashville and texted him about this time last year that the Titans may be the worst team in the AFC South.  A QB switch and a hot streak later - all of the sudden they make it all the way to the AFCCG.

    • quick update, wife is doing much better and while some side effects still linger, she's up and moving and even voluntarily went back to work after her doctor approved it.
    • Charles / Christian whoever Mr C. Darrisaw ftw lol guess I need more coffee myself.  Then again I did leave my reading glasses elsewhere last night...   Bengals draft history of #1 picks and ending up on IR or out for long periods of time was the storyline here within 6 of the past years.  Odds don't look good for year #7 if you are superstitious. The Bengals already have a QB and LT they draft and the could really use a TE but really need a RT and upgraded guards.  Sewell projections never made sense to us here in Ohio.  Lesson learned in the NFL is to protect the QB.  Guess they could stay put and draft that TE then a center early in the 2nd would solve some of the Bengals issues.   To keep the masses happy and get that franchise LT and reduce that cost of overpaying 4 OL at least this mock would help take care of that and then some while also resetting our Edges plus backfilling players lost in FA for OL depth.
    • Turay has had 2 good games against bad OTs in his career.  All other games he's been avaerage.  No more "raw" DEs with upside please.  At least not before the 4th or 5th round.  Take players who can actually play in rounds 1 through 3.   All of the DEs and DTs Ballard has drafted should not have been taken before round 4, with Grover being the best, and who was taken in round 4 (Or 5).    And he did not draft Buckner, he traded for a known quantity.
    • you all need some coffee and try reading over the whole thread again.   Offer is to trade Kelly and our 2nd round pick...post was updated not giving away our 5th   Rest of you all need to go back a year or so and look over the Colts beat writer and value of trading away our top players and what it would command for each for Leonard, Kelly, and Nelson as the top 3 and he broke it down even farther per trades for rest of Colts top players. Again I have Darrisaw going before Sewell so really not a big shocker but yes one trade could lead to another if the Colts wanted to purse a QB.   At least this scenario allows the Colts, again in my opinion to draft the best LT available early, and again we took Nelson 6th overall so no a stretch of imagination.  Then trade back with the Packers and select the best center available who is a Kelly clone if not better younger version.   Sounds like the Colts hit two home runs if this is baseball in the first.  Remind who's on second of that's right we won't have a second round pick under this assumption.
    • I can understand that.   But going to a perennial loser can really have ill effects on your mind and love of the game.
