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.

    • Some combo of scheme and overall talent?   DeFo and Leonard are great players. DeFo is a monster and makes the defense better, but he's not Aaron Donald. And Leonard is a playmaker and tackle machine, but also regressed in pass coverage last season.    But SEA (Adams and Wagner) and KC (Jones and Mathieu) also had (2) All-Pros on their defenses...and they finished #16 and #22 respectively (DVOA). Two players can't do it alone together (or something like that).   I think another part is the pass rush. The DL (DeFo included) got their production in bunches in a handful of games against bad OLs. So the overall pass rush numbers were better than what the Colts were actually fielding from week to week.   Also, and it seems like no one talks about this, but the defense overall basically fell off a cliff in the 2nd half of the season. The difference in numbers are pretty eye-opening.
    • IMO, Leno's tape showed that he got overpowered a lot.  He's small for a LT.  His ratings improved when daBears moved Cody Whitehair to LG.  Perhaps Whitehair had to help out too much, causing daBears to want to release Leno in favor of a more stout Tevin Jenkins (whom everybody thought would be RT on daBears).  Maybe Frank saw that and wanted Nelson free-er to do other things.   No great loss in not signing Leno, IMO.   I'd like to see Davenport develop as a capable true LT.  He languished as a RT in HOU.
    • You know, this is starting to worry me. Seems that Reich pounded the table for more than a few guys this year. If this works, he’s a genius, but if it fails majorly, does this then reflect on his future tenure?
    • No doubt...and I referenced that was just the RTP rate based off that one study.    It is directional (like most data) and we don’t know those variables. There are variables like roster expectations, age and position played...information we don’t have.    But even still...as a large sample of NFL players it’s more valid than any anecdotal evidence of player A or player B returning...which I have seen people use (Brandon Brooks for example).    Even if we could account for some of those variables, I would bet the RTP rate for having two players return is still likely going to be closer to 53% than 100%. So it’s definitely a gamble.   But this is just the RTP rate...we aren’t even accounting for post-operative performance. A percentage of players don’t get back to where they were. And the ones that do...take a really long time. 
    • A difference of close to 20 between 2 players of the same position vs a difference of 10, however, in PFF rating has to give you pause and pay more attention because lack of context cannot explain it all, IMO. Just my two cents FWIW.
