Colts 21 Steelers 25  

Colts 2 steelers 0. Houston gets safety for the win

I can't lie this is one of the only threads I hate every year or two because I have to say we're gonna lose which I hate.

 

The stats don't lie in this matchup, we post them whenever we play them. They could have Tolzien or Painter starting along with an entire practice squad defense and lose.

 

Hoping Philip bucks the trend.

 

24-17 that other team...:thmdown:

One thing for sure is this colts and Steelers offense is very similar. I think the colts might get more explosive plays though. Going to come down to can the colts protect rivers. Them missing Dupree should help. I want to see joe they play the Bengals tomorrow to get a feel for this game. Steelers should dominate but if they don’t steelers might be falling apart.

Hopefully not, but even if it is a bad weather, “ground & pound” game with limited passing, I still like our chances!

The weather forecast said it’ll be 30s and partly cloudy. Though that could change quickly lol.

Can Frank Reich call a game that can win against the Steelers? I wonder. The Colts are very capable of beating them. But their coach is very capable of finding a way to mess it up. And with the  defense’s struggles to cover the middle on pass plays, we know the game won’t be a low scoring affair. If Frank somehow magically morphs into a Bill Walsh creative play caller, the Colts win. But since this is as likely as Andrew Luck suiting up next week, I am adjusting my brain to a Steelers win. I hate that, but Frank is who he is. No one will be happier if I’m wrong. I don’t think I am.

I think I remember a Monday night game when we beat them. I think Peyton threw a bomb to Marvin on the first play.

 

Yeah that was a TD pass. We handled them easily that game... and then it was playoff time, 2005. 

 

Colts laid an egg and steelers took advantage.

I heard Nance say "see you next week in Pittsburgh".

Yeah that's definitely what I heard as well. Wanted to be sure.

Glad we'll have more Colts fans being able to watch in general next week (for the radio/streaming fans).

 

I'm really hoping we show up, it's basically a potential playoff matchup, but in December.

Hopefully the weather isn’t too bad.

On the contrary, I hope it is terrible weather! Our run game is starting to take off with Taylor looking like he is figuring it out and Hines getting carries in better situations as well where he is less predictable.

The Steelers running game is "meh" at best right now. Give me Deforest Buckner and our D-line vs their running game all day.

    • Keep in mind Leno was a 7th round pick in 2014 but didn't start full time till 2016. He signed an modest extension in 2017, but then made the Pro Bowl in 2018. Had a bit of a down year in 2019, but rebounded for a good year in 2020. He graded better than AC. IMO, he's the best and healthiest option left of the FA OTs. He hasn't hit 30 yet. Fisher is injured and 30. Okung is 33. Given he's the youngest, healthiest, and rates over 70, he'll be in higher demand, as there are still several teams looking for a LT. If he wanted 9M a year for 2 years, I'd take that in a heartbeat. I just doubt he'll be OK with that.    Keep in mind the Bears pretty much had to cut him as they couldn't afford to keep him. They were negative cap. It's why they drafted Jenkins. And Denver, who is one of the few teams to have more cap space than Indy, is highly interested in Leno.   Fisher coming off that injury is a big dice roll. That will impact his market value. Healing at 30 years old is tough for some guys, especially big uglies.   I don't see Leno taking less than 3 year / 30M. I don't see Fisher taking a one year deal at all. Worst thing he could do is do a one year after an injury, look meh this year, and he's done. He'll want 2-3 and some guarantees. He'll take less per year, but he'll want some security.  The team will have most leverage with Okung in terms of $ and duration.
    • The Paye pick makes a lot of sense but the Dayo pick surprised me. I wanted a left tackle and thought that there were a couple of guys who would have made a lot of sense.   Ballard and co know way more about those players than I do, however, so I'll continue to trust their judgement until they demonstrate that I shouldn't.    I'd rather have two good pass rushers than one good pass rusher and one bad left tackle.
    • I like the breakdown and agree although i caveat with this:   I don't think Leno or Fisher was 2-3 year deals unless they get what their market is before being cut.   And I do not think CB is going to big against himself to do that.   Leno basically made $8M-$9M each year ($8.8, $5.0, $8.1, $8.1) and was slated to make $9.0M this year before cut.   If the Colts are going to offer him $8-$9M a year I think he would gladly take a 2-3 year deal. But if the Colts are bargain shopping then I think he and Fisher will both be happy to take 1 year deals and prove their worth and re-enter the market next year when there is a lot more money to go around.   Fisher probably won't go for a 2-3 year deal unless he is making $10M+    I would actually ideally like to see us give one of them a 2-3 year deal where we have cost control on a decent contract for a year or two beyond this one.   I think that is a big win if so. More likely scenario has us giving one of them a $6M-$8M deal for a year and then having to either try to extend them if it works out or let them walk if it doesn't. 
    • Best option if healthy - Fisher (will still likely want 2-3 years)   Safest option - Leno (likely wants 3 years min)   Most expensive option - Leno   Cheapest short term option with a level of safety - Okung (PFF predicts a 3 year deal, which I don't see).   IMO, if you don't grab one of those guys, or other quality FA, you'll end up starting Tevi. If you start Tevi, before long you're moving Nelson to LT.... Ballard likely doesn't want to give Leno 3-4 years and high dollars. FIsher comes with risk. IDK... 
    • Here's what PFF says, and how they rank them in terms of FAs available.   In short, Houston had the worst pass rush graded year of his career, but still was top 10 in pass rush win rate. Kerrigan on the other had a career worst year all around, was really lousy vs the run, while many expected a bump up in production per snap due to the reduced role.   If Houston would take a one year deal, I'd rather give him 10M than give Kerrigan 5M.     Don't forget we lost 2 (Autry and Houston) and added 3 (Paye, Dayo, Rochell). So even if Dayo takes longer, we're still even net/net with the addition of Rochell.    I agree he could start over Banogu. As long as Turay is deemed healthy enough to play, he'd be a better passing downs rusher than Kerrigan. Kerrigan wouldn't play on running downs at all for us. He'd be a rotational or depth pass rush specialist at best.
