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.

    • 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.
