So i was watching the game towards the end of the 4th quarter and noticed something strange before the fumble by Watson. A screen popped up showing our team already at 8-4 and Tenn with a loss. i remember thinking to myself it was kind of odd for them to show that before the game was over plus the Texans were still driving and even the announcers seemed oblivious to it  they just kept talking regularly then the fumble happened. i wonder did any of y'all noticed that as well?

That was really weird. I noticed it as well. They had Colts 8-4 and Texans 4-8 BEFORE the fumble.

 

Conspiracy theorists would say this is proof the NFL is fixed

Yeah, I noticed that to and joked with my kids about they knew the outcome.

 

 

I also appreciate you calling that fumble by Watson what it was.

 

I keep seeing botched snap floated around. While it may not of been the best snap Watson lost thw ball, can't blame Center for that.

Maybe it is the C and OL coach in me but 90% of the bad snap fumbles are because of the  person at the QB position

No it was definitely before.

 

I was thinking "why do they have us at 8-4 when we're about to lose this game ?"

 

Texans had the ball at the 6 yard line and a first down.

 

They flash the graphic and then magically the fumble happens.

 

No joke

Sometimes they do a “if things stay the same as they are right now” and throw up a graphic. Could that be it?

that's what i thought the announcer's were about to talk about when it popped up but they seemed like they didn't even know it was up there

It definitely wasnt the time for it. At the moment it looked as of the Texans were going in for the win

Agreed. Just know I’ve seen them do stuff like that before. And we were technically ahead. 
 

Either way, no way Watson gave up that fumble on purpose. :scratch:

No doubt he didnt, but it definitely was weird for sure.

Maybe it was a message from the football gods that the Colts are receiving divine assistance. We have a particularly spiritual team and coaching staff. Perhaps the team’s prayers are being answered....:lecture:

 

That botched snap was so bizarre that I can’t help wondering if there was some divine intervention. Spirits can absolutely manipulate energy and objects.

I have a thing I do when the Colts have the ball...I light a candle on my table.  I had just said Lord help us win this and as soon as I said that the ball was hiked and fumbled!  I jumped up and down of course screaming!  It was in the stars?! LOL!

Definitely interesting it's most likely a mess-up, but it may have also been  meant as a "if the Colts can hold on here is how the standings shake up" but something got messed up or abandoned and the broadcast just ignored the graphic either intentionally or accidentally.

Mistakes happen. Remember when Fox News showed that one Supreme Court justice had died when she was alive? She lived like another 3 years after.

One time a local newspaper years ago in a Sunday edition printed Mondays lottery results instead of Saturdays results. 

The results they printed for Monday, 24 hours ahead of time, were the exact numbers that drew in. :thinking:

How does anyone here explain this? 
in the spirit world, there is no “time”.  Spirits can see what’s going to happen in the “future.” 
Perhaps they didn’t interfere but were broadcasting to the praying Colts fans that all would be okay. :console:

Yeah I saw that as well.  Made a comment to one of my kids watching the game with me.  it was probably innocent enough.  They probably changed it when Hines returned the free kick to the 5 and didn't change it back when the refs tried to give the game to Houston.

It would have to be a conspiracy involving players on the field, at the right moment.  What, like 57 human beings on 32 teams keeping a lid on the NFL managed outcomes?  Good luck with that.

 

Sounds like a coincidental error where the folks in the "truck" couldn't adjust their new graphics quick enough to capture how fast HOU went down the field.

While that is true youd never keep it under wraps, on the other hand, who would believe them if they said anything?

My shares in tin foil don't approve of this post.

    • Those three PLUS wide receiver!   Those Big 4 match our four biggest needs. 
    • *Colts re-sign Justin Houston- This may be after the draft but as of now I think he is the best chance to help our pass rush not take a step back unless we want to try Ingram or Clowney.   **I still have hope Ertz could end up available but if not oh well.   Here we go... yep. No trades.   1. Sam Cosmi- LT- The time to replace AC is now. This may not technically be the best valued player available but he's not far off. If we wait until 54 I think there will have been a run on the best remaining OTs. Take a quality athletic LT at 21 and keep the o-line in great shape. Next year we are likely without a 1st, there may not be a better time. We could trade back but that's hard to predict. We would need a great deal to pass on our pick of the litter imo.    2.  Ifeatu Melifonwu- CB- Great fit. Tall, athletic, excels in zone. Not quite as big a need as DE but not far behind. Rhodes only has one year for now and I, like others, would like to see an upgrade over RYS.   4. Elerson Smith- DE- With the need at LT and the lack of value in round two we opt to dig for athletic upside for our pass rush addition. We come up with Smith. He's a bit of a forum favorite and I get why. We can't confidently fix every issue this year imo, but if you can't, at least find some upside.   5. Dazz Newsome‐ WR- We may very well pass up a lot of good value at WR this draft but the good news is some solid prospects are likely to fall into the later rounds. An explosive prospect who can compete with Campbell to replace Hilton as our little guy speedster. Lol   6. Quentin Morris- TE- One of my favorite late round prospects. With this being an average to below average TE class after Pitts, Morris offers some upside to provide us with a move TE down the line.   7. Franklin McCain III- CB- Borrowing again from a pool of forum recommendations. You can't realistically expect late round guys to all be hits but I'm down for investing those final picks in depth we can groom.   Final notes:   - Cosmi and Melifonwu are my favorite no trade 1-2 realistic punch. Value and need matches pretty nicely imo.   -I've seen Newsome graded as a 2nd rounder but most have him at rounds 4-5. He also ran a 4.38 so I might be a bit optimistic about his availability   -I could always do another mock but I don't see my view changing much from now until the 29th.
    • It’s the University of Michigan for goodness sake!    It would be a bigger deal if Dodds wasn’t there!   
    • I'd like to hear the board's thoughts on this topic from more of an outside perspective. From my experience Steelers fans fall into two camps (generally speaking); totally irrational and loyal to the death, highly critical of anything to do with Pittsburgh Football unless it results in a championship (and not always in a rational manner).     Now for my thinking, this issue should have been addressed much sooner, but if nothing else after the disaster that was the 2019 season. You have an aging QB who just blew his elbow out and were starting "junior varsity" replacements. You have been bleeding free agents all off season in 2020 and have lost or watched the decline of key players at LT, C, LB, RB, S, CB and just resigned a WR free agent. Plus, you also need a LG. These stooges are actually suggesting using a 2nd round pick on a QB from college when the decision to do nothing about the QB position has caused half the team to get sent packing because you have next to nothing to spend in free agency.   This is after these same people lauded the Dwayne Haskins singing as a "steal". Pittsburgh literally got him for nothing this year after WFT ate all the "bad" in his contract, a 15th overall pick coming into his 3rd year in the NFL who drastically needed a change of scenery.   I'm convinced that if it was up to Tomlin he would have already moved on. We all know he's a master at coach speak at the podium but he's a completely different guy otherwise. Even at that, he's started to unravel a bit because you can tell he's getting frustrated with some of his more recent public comments. He is no BSer. I get the warm fuzzy feeling we all have when a team is loyal to a player who has been valuable and produced at a high level, but I mean even New England and Indianapolis let Manning and Brady walk after all of their success.   Please tell me in what universe does any of this even make sense? I am confused.
