Colts in first place in the AFCS (MERGE)


Recommended Posts

According to some:

Colts have no chance in this one

 

Tannehill is a franchise QB (actually he isn't, he is a game manager)

 

Rivers is washed up (actually he isn't, get your eyes checked)

 

Reich is a bad coach (actually some people's definition of bad is comical)

 

The Colts are going nowhere with this core (1st place)

 

- Now what?? Think before you post nonsense to some out there. Not only did we win but this was a blowout in the 2nd half lmao

Not too bad for a team with a GM who doesn’t know what he’s doing, a coach who can’t coach, a QB who had a noodle arm and can’t throw, a Number one WR who can’t play anymore, and an oline that isn’t g

Plus some of those rush yards were in garbage time. I thought we did relatively well against the rush. Henry is the top power back. He’s going to get yards. We kept him from breaking the game and that

Its good to see all the positive vibes here

Biggest win of the year by far. If we lose this it would've been bad haha . Now we are is great shape. We are now favored to win the division at 55/45%. If we would've lost it would've been 20/80% in Titans favor, that is how big that swing is.

Our Defense is pretty nasty! Stewart and Buckner together....woooweee

 

Hines came to play! He was the fastest guy on the field last night. 

 

For awhile there I wasn't sure is Titans Specials Teams or Frank Reich was trying to give more points away. 

 

Congrats to JB on his $7.5M touchdown lol 

 

Good job to the team for finally putting two halves of a game together.

If we can somehow win these next two home games the hard part of the schedule is over. We don’t do well against elite QB so we will see what happens against GB. We need to stay consistent and stop with one good game one bad game. We should get Turay back next week too.

 

I've been harping on QB sneaks in short yardage situations for a while now.  Stats show that the simple QB sneak is the most likely play to succeed in those situations and it's not even close.  Jacoby is uniquely qualified to run the sneak given his strength and big body.

430 yards of offense. I think only two media people picked the Colts. I admit I was upset with Rivers when he hesitated to throw to his receiver in the end zone. A couple gifts tonight but they are a part of the game. Repeat at Indy in two weeks. 

I believe he saw that defender lurking a few yards away.

Looks like Jacoby has locked up a contract extension, eh?

Once we straighten out those 5 areas, we'll be unstoppable!

Titans turned their attention to him so Rivers did the smart thing and threw to other wide open guys.  That’s the thing that Hilton brings that gets dismissed by so many here.  He’s still covered like a number one WR which opens up other guys in the offense.  One of the long throws tonight was cleared out by Hilton running pattern under it that drew the safety away from the guy who caught the pass.  

 

This is absolutely true. I once said this offense didn't need TY and I was wrong.

 

When he's in the game he immediately draws the safety over leaving Johnson, Pittman or whoever in man coverage allowing Rivers a more favorable match-up.

 

He was sorely missed in the ravens game and you could see the difference last night with our offense

Good game but we gave up 160 yards of rushing. Need to clean that up 

A decent chunk of those yards were when we were already 2 or 3 scores up in the 4th quarter and we were happy to let them run and run the clock. Henry did Henry and had 103 yards on 19 carries.... but the other 57 yards were essentially in garbage time.

We'd be a lot better team if we could consistently count on our running game instead of having to depend on screens and other stuff as a substitue for the ground game.  Hines was decent this game, but we aren't really getting much from anyone else.  Thought Wilkins was going to make a difference, but not significant enough and Taylor is still giving me question marks.  At the end of the day this is what is going to stop us from getting very far.  And I still think we need 1 more deep threat.   Glad we won though!

Counting down the days to when a hopefully healthy Campbell returns to this offense.... with Pittman starting to hit what looks like his stride and TY getting healthy and drawing coverage and opening up the rest of the receivers more too.

Sprinkle some Pascal, Johnson, Mo Ali Cox, Trey Burton and Demichael Harris into that - lovely stuff...

Still need that running game though. Its why we are doing more quick throw, possess the ball type stuff instead of going after the chunk plays. This offense is capable of scoring much more if we could get more from our ground game. Right now we are using our passing game to substitute for deficiencies in the run offense. The lack of ground game has taken away our playaction.

People can say what they want but the Colts are legit contender this season.

 

Contender when they win games and not when they lose.  Just before the Thursday night game yesterday, Troy Aikmen mentioned that this team should be 0-8 but somehow has 5 wins. lol. After we played a great game, he changed his tune.

The inconsistency on offense is the biggest limiting factor.  Everything you say is true. That said, having faith that we wont revert to what we showed in the Baltimore game, which was winnable had our performance not been so poor,  is just a bridge to far right now.

 

I'm always optimistic and if I can see an offensive identity develop over the next 4 weeks, preferably with a couple wins mixed in, I may drop a dancing banana.  Personally I'm still on the roller coaster.  Trying not to get to high or too low but somehow still managing to do both.

 

Great win tho!  Sets us up well to sweep the titans, hopefully the texans, and split with the jags.

I just don't care for Trolls, nothing personal but I will call some out when necessary. This is a Colts board not an opposing teams board :thmup:. Some want to bring the nonsense, I will bring it back.

Troy Aikmen is in the running for dumbest person on TV. Which speaks volumes.

Balt is still like a tier below KC and Pitt but those 2 turnovers killed us

When push comes to shove, KC would be hard to keep up with. Steelers don't have the O like KC so beating the Steelers while difficult is more doable. Having said that, we seem to never beat them no matter the teams in any era.

    • I simply love this post.    Specific things I appreciate 1) Young player development. That is such a good point. It strikes me as entirely possible that they did not go for FA edge rusher because they want to see the growth from Turey and Banagu.    2) Free agency is not over with. They will draft next week, assess their roster and add a few players. Houston,Kerrigan and Ingram will still be available next week if they deem their pass rush still needs something. I would think a vet QB is still very possible as well.    3) I believe they will take a OT or DL with their first pick but not because those are the glaring needs but because the likelihood is there will be an available player highly rated on their board at one of those positions. However if a CB for example is the highest rated guy by a long shot, it will surprise me not at all that corner becomes the pick.    Ballard and transparency - you are right on that.  He will hint at what is to come.  One of his core values is to build the lines on both sides of the ball. I will not be shocked if multiple players on the line are taken beyond just OT and DE.    Anyway - well done.     
    • And they haven’t had clear needs in previous drafts?
    • If a player they love falls, regardless of position, they will take him.    I do expect that round 1 will be an Edge and round 2 will be a Tackle, but they won’t reach to far down their board.   For example, if they love Micah Parsons (just using him as an example) and he falls, I could see them taking him. Fill the holes later.
    • Jared...    it’s not that I don’t believe what the Colts put out, but here’s what I don’t do.   I don’t look at the pieces and announce with 100 percent certainty that they’re talking about a specific player — like you did with Liam Eichenberg.    So I don’t jump to conclusions on what the Colts put out.   I don’t say “they’re talking about this player or that player.”      I accept what the Colts put out because they’ve given me no reason not to.  But, frankly,  they’re not putting out as much as you think they are.  You can imply most anything with clever editing.    I jumped the gun in the Jags video.  I didn’t know what it was.  I was reacting to your 100 percent certainty that you knew who they were talking about.   That it was fact.   I was trying to offer some cold water to cool off a highly likely wrong guess.     Believe what you want.  But guessing who a team is talking about based on the edited video is not likely to lead to a correct answer.     
    • If we can get 2 out of 3 from the Brewers I will take it. That would put us a game out of 1st place at the end of the weekend. Brewers swept the Padres which was surprising.
