Week 17 Jaguars @Colts, Jan. 3, 2021, 4:25 EST


Message added by Nadine,

Please be mindful of your fellow posters.  Don't use the game day thread to vent or call out fellow posters as either homers or haters.  It's obnoxious and ruins the thread. Plenty of time for new threads after the game for expressing your point of view.

Happy New Year, everyone! :fireworks:

 

 

We have reached the end of the regular season but not the end of football for your Indianapolis Colts. The 10-5 Colts will make the postseason if they win and get one of the other playoff contenders to lose. The Colts also have a chance to win the division if the Titans lose. 

 

The Colts will play the Jaguars who come to Indy with a 1-14 record and have clinched the #1 spot in this year's draft. The Jags have nothing to play for except pride. Their only win was against the Colts in Jacksonville. However, they face a more determined Colts team this time who intend to make playoffs and go far. 

 

Who won't be playing for the Colts:

Rock Ya Sin

Khari Willis

Will Holden

Anthony Castonzo (IR)

 

Who is out for the Jags:

(WR) DJ Chark

(RB) James Robinson 

(WR) Collin Johnson

 

Good luck and enjoy the game! :colts:

Trevor Lawrence is really scared watching this game on his couch right now.

I’m going to let these zebras have it all game, I’m close enough for them to hear me.

Thanks again for opening the thread, NFLfan.  Happy New Year, everyone!  Hoping we start the new year off with an entry into the playoffs.  We should win without too much difficulty today, but the Jags always play us tough.  27 - 10 Colts.


Never understood flexing us to the late games when the TV coverage looks exactly the same as it would had we been in the 1PM slot?  It's not like any more people are going to be able to see the game so no need for the added drama.  Oh well.  Whatever...

GO Colts!  All day.  Every day.  :coltshelmet:

You're welcome. How does a Jersey guy become a Colts fan before the 1969 Super Bowl against a NY/NJ team?  haha   (Were the Jets playing in NJ at the time?)

 

I was a student in college when I chose the Vikings. My own hometown team (the Giants) had just won the Super Bowl in 1990. There were fans of the Bills, Jets, and Giants all over but I chose an out-of-town team.  :)

Edit: and go Vikings with whatever result @NFLfan would like them to have.

Go Steelers, not Brown's.

This is going to be a high blood pressure day.

It thought maybe you were so confident in the Bills that you'd root against the Steelers

Nope, need all the options we can get today.

Haha...it was actually somewhat similar for me in that everyone else (my brother, best friend, etc) all had favorite teams and I didn't.  It was just before the '69 Super Bowl and the Colts were heavily favored to win (and I wanted a winner), so I chose the Colts as my favorite team.  We all know how that worked out, lol.  Pure embarassment for 9 year old me, haha.

 

No, the Jets were still at Shea at the time.  To this day I still loathe Joe Willie...still have no idea how he made it to the HOF.  I still think it was solely because of the win over the Colts to make the AFL legit.

Is there a thread for the games the Colts need or is it OK to post in here.

We've done it a few times in here before since it's all relevant.

Just sayin'...

I think given how much 3 games impacts on ours later it might be a good topic to post a combined response into. 

 

There is also:

Good stuff. I love to hear about how people became fans of certain teams. I was not born yet when Super Bowl 3 took place. But for years I heard about it on WFAN sports radio in NY.

 

Good for you that you did not change allegiances. :thmup:

Everyone of these games is starting out very bad for the colts. This is what happens can when you don’t take care of business.

Not going to get concerned until after the half on any of these games.

Brown's up 7-0 and driving.  The are dominating the S Steelers.  

Be tough for Pit to win this.

Pitt can come back from being down 17.  At least I think I remember them doing that once.  Lol

I don't see it happening without Ben.   But it is only the 2nd quarter.  

Bummer to see all the teams we need to lose, winning.

Bills starting to click on offense.  D is playing well.  Just have to hope that they can score a bunch of points before they take out their starters.

    • Ok, now remove the game against Jax, or against any team in the bottom 10 in run D....    All RBs take some time, especially when coming from a power team that used a lot of FB, and going to a heavy zone read situation. He did run for 100+ (one of his 3 100+ games) in the first game of the eyar... 
    • Henry recognizing anyone has little to do with anything.   Henry and Taylor are different type backs. Henry is a unicorn at 6-3 and 240ish. 
    • We really don't play SAM a lot at all, so saying SAM stinks is a bit curious. If you're talking about Okereke, who played SAM, then OK. Yes, he took a step back last season regardless of whether he played SAM or MIKE. He'll be asked to play a lot more run downs, which was his weakest area. His assumed strongest area (coverage) was not so great last season either. This sounds like you are trying to find a theory (that can not be proven or disproven) to support you opinion lol....   All teams try to blitz in the right situations. We simply just blitz at an almost league low (31st lowest). There were plenty of obvious downs (that would have been conducive) that we didn't blitz. Of course when your team blitzes more, opposing Os look for it more.  We only really have two LBs that log a lot of snaps now. One is great, one is a bit below average. Before that, we had Walker, who did pretty well (averaged 100 Ts a year) vs the run on early downs. Leonard certainly doesn't stink. Walker didn't stink. He was great in one aspect, average in another. Oke is questionable in both phases.   Our SS isn't asked to do a lot in our system. He does very well in his role though. When asked to play legit 2 deep, he struggles on the backend. Moore is well rounded. It's simply our scheme, and he fits well for what we ask him to do. Any DB asked to blitz will be close to the LOS. I would have to imagine Rock or Blackmon would also do well is given the opportunity given their traits and demeanor. Our scheme just doesn't ask a FS or CB to do much of that. I don't see us using 3 Ss much at all. Only in Dime, but a Dime can be a S or CB, and I'd say it's a CB more than S due to the fact they're typically asked to cover. And felt like we used Dime very sparingly in ultra-prevent situations.
