Yep, rooting for Bills vs Packers SB at the moment.

 

 

Anyone but Brady, but BUF/GB would make me feel a little better about the season. I feel good about it anyway,  but a team we beat and a team that wr outplayed and should've won(imo), sounds good right about now.

Will get that State Farm SB after all? Rodgers vs Mahomes?? :) 

 

NFC and AFC go back and forth with #1 vs #1 seed SBs lately.

 

2009 - Saints over Colts

2013 - Seahawks over Broncos

2014 - Patriots over Seahawks 

2015 - Broncos over Panthers

2016 - Patriots over Falcons 

2017 - Eagles over Patriots 

Don't forget Bills have Jake Fromm State Farm inactive

Ballard during his presser this week mentioned how every QB needs to be able to throw from the pocket. We are saw how easy it is to shut Jackson down. While a guy like Allen can extend plays and run first looks to throw from the picket. The running game of the QB should be secondary to the passing game. Not what the ravens do.

I still think we can get there with rivers. All these teams are so close. If that chiefs and browns game is close it really shows how close all the teams in the afc are.

Agreed. I think Ballard loads it up next season for one last ride with rivers.

We should of beat the Bills and Ravens. Yes we can win with rivers. Take covid out of the equation we might if only lost 3 games and had the two seed. Campbell stays healthy that adds a dynamic weapon to the offense.

The best QBs that use their legs do so to pass first - Mahomes, Allen, Wilson and to an extent Rodgers

Well, the weather was much better for throwing for us and the Bills. Just goes to show you it’s a week to week thing in the NFL. A Turay mistake and Rodrigo missed kick came back to haunt us. 
 

I also feel the Bills D is better than people give them credit for.

Jackson just can’t throw from the pocket very well. He throws on the run ok. They need to get him another WR and work on him passing. Then the running game from him becomes secondary. I don’t think they are going to win with him being basically a RB who throws the ball.

Just happy the Titans are in it no more. O-line is everything when it comes to winning in playoffs. O-line plus a QB with mobility gives a very good ceiling.


Remembering all those years of Brady with good O-lines and Mahomes’ O-line balling last year and Cam Newton’s O-line in 2015 (till they ran into 2 great pass rushers in SB), and this year both Rodgers and Allen enjoying excellent O-line play.

Colts are a very good team. I think we’re an edge rusher, 1 solid corner, and a qb away from a SB run.

I would substitute a #1 wide receiver for a QB in this equation, Philip Rivers is easily a good enough quarterback to get us where we want to go as long as the supporting cast does their jobs, because he will. He was within a few "mistakes" (numerous dropped passes, a missed FG & questionable play calling) of beating this very talented Bills team last weekend.

Same here although honestly if Brady gets bounced I wouldn’t have a problem with any of the other teams left.

Or if the Bills kicker missed like he did twice this week.  
 

i agree the Bills D is better than it gets credit for and I hope that makes people look at the fact the Colts put up over 400 yards on them and went up and down the field at will most of the game means the offense isn’t as bad some say they are.

If our defense  could have held Allen to 17 we would have won

Fair point.  As much as I don’t like Collinsworth he said it best tonight Allen was the difference in the game.

Would love a Bills/Browns AFCCG.  Two losing franchise playing to go to the Bowl. Would be happy no matter who won.

 

Report today is Taysom Hill will not play. He hurt his leg last week. That is big for the Saints in terms of short yardage and red zone. I still think the game will be close with the Bucs pulling away at the end. Brady and Rodgers would be epic in the NFCCG most likely in the snow.

No way either of these teams are beating the Chiefs. 

You're assuming the Chiefs are locks against CLV....I think that game may be closer than you think.

....how close the Colts WERE to getting to the big dance.

 

Next season will be a different season, the QB position is still questionable. The AFCSouth will be presumably tougher.

I dont think you even watched the game. Goff played very well considering he had a broken thumb on his throwing hand and was pressured big time. 

Watched the whole game, his throws were off, his receivers were catching at their feet and diving to make catches often zero yards after catches even on short throws. It was bad, very bad.  In pres conference McVay when asked is Goff the qb going forward stated "he's the qb right now".....he saw it most the season and once again. Will be interesting who they turn to.

Both things can be true. Ballard has his work cut out for him.

The things I'm certain about are:

- The Colts were not far from being a SB contender this year. Actually they were a SB contender period. Had everything needed to plow through the playoffs. 

- The QB position is the single position that's almost a constant in post season participation and SB contention. The Colts dont have that secured for next season...EVEN if Rivers returns, because of his age, it's not a guarantee that he retains success.

 

So when you speak in present terms about it, I struggle to agree simply because without solidity at QB, well we're probably a 9-7 type of team.

Yeah, I am. It is possible that it will be close, but I don't think so. 

 

Also, I am rooting for the Chiefs to win it all.

I agree that he wasn't Mahomes but under the circumstances he played very well. 

You act like and stated he was trash but yet he had the Rams within one TD with 5 minutes left in the game. 

Two weeks removed from surgery on his thumb on his throwing hand was a problem you fail to mention.

Not an excuse, just the facts.

Yeah as much as I'd like to see a Browns/Bills AFCCG (just to know that one of those teams will actually be in a SB, lol), I think Mahomes is going to make his usual WOW plays.  Today.  A week from today.  And three weeks from today.

 

If it's windy like last night in Buffalo, and Mahomes can't make accurate deep throws to Hill, then the Browns have a chance to keep it close.  They could definitely win if Myles Garrett rips off Mahomes throwing arm and hits him over the head with it.

    • The "pundit" wrote his statement as if Rhodes were still on the team and not a street free agent. I was not saying we are set, we have talent. However, the premise was that the national pundit didn't even know Rhodes is a street free agent!
    • Manning and Brady, or I should say QB in general, is not a good comp. QB is a singular position which the entire O goes through, and is typically the face/leader of the team, and plays every snap. And then add on top of that PM and TB are 2 of the greatest ever and were able to play every game, all game.. And plugging them in to a team is very different than plugging in a guy who would be one of 4 on the DL, and likely playing only around 60% of snaps.    Like I said, love to have him on a reasonable deal. I just don't see him being generous enough to make it work. I'd recommend looking at our ammo (2 early draft picks, 42ish M in cap), and solving for the holes we need to fill (2xDE, LT, WR1 and 4, CB1 and 4, MIKE, TE).    I really do think most of the team will be put back together from last year. Rhodes will get a good raise, Autry and/or Houston likely, or at minimum one (similar $ to last year). TY is really the only one I don't envision being back. Perhaps Walker moves on too, but we'll need to fill that hole as Oke doesn't look to be the 3 down answer. Anyways, lot of high dollar holes, with decent, not great ammo. I'm hoping they go DE in the 1st, LT in the second. Back to the question above, how would you allocate the draft picks and $, while filling all the holes, and making it work with Watt.
    • Pundits as far as my recollection has always referred to the media folks.....wow, a lot of folks in an uproar over nothing!
    • I personally see where Doug is coming from. Watson wants out but shouldn't have signed the contract. HOU doesn't have to trade him and shouldn't. If not for any other reason than to set the precedent. Both parties will have to look bad because neither should back down. This for Colts fans is perfect off-season entertainment. 
    • I'd say (at least since they moved to Indy) it'd be the 2005, 2006 or 2009 team.  The 2005 and 2009 teams had the best records (14-2) in regular season.  Unfortunately, the 2005 team was one and done in playoffs so hard to argue they were the best as they didn't even win a playoff game let alone make it to the SB.   I agree that Polian/Caldwell stopped the momentum by resting players in 2009.  I'll never forget Peyton standing on the sideline with his helmet on the rest of that game after they pulled starters, he looked absolutely furious.  Jeff Saturday said years later that his biggest regret as a player was not going for a perfect season in 2009.... the SB loss that year was a tough pill to swallow, the only thing I was happy about was New Orleans brought a title to their city so soon after Hurricane Katrina.   All that aside, the Colts failed to win the SB that year.  I think Dungy was a far superior coach to Caldwell.  We were without Marvin that year, Bob Sanders was on IR, etc.  With a pretty similar team the following year we went 10-6 and then without Peyton the next year we went 2-14 and it was exposed that our roster was actually pretty weak without stud QB play.  The more I think about it, the more I wonder if 2009 was more Peyton being a hero than the Colts having a very great team from top to bottom.     I go back and forth on this, but thinking the 2006 group may be a bit better of an overall team.  They were unbeaten at home and sealed the deal with a SB win.  While Bob Sanders only played 4 regular season games, he was back for the playoffs and the defense only gave up 73.3 yards rushing per game in that run against some pretty darn good teams.  We had a better OL (Tarik Glenn at LT instead of Charlie Johnson in  2009).  And we had a better WR corps with both Marv and Reggie than we did in 2009 with Reggie and Garcon.  I think you could argue the RB duo of Addai (1081 yards) and Rhodes (641 yards) was as good or better in 2006 than Addai (828 yards) and D. Brown (281 yards) in 2009.   I think our defense was better overall in 2006 than it was in 2009 (especially come playoff time when Sanders was back) and that we had a better head coach in Dungy than we did with Caldwell.  Going position by position (or positional group by group), I think the only position where the 2009 team was clearly better than 2006 is punter (McAfee > Hunter Smith).     I know the 2009 team had more pro-bowlers and all-pros, but I'm not sure if they were overall better than 2006.  The 2009 team had 3 first-team all-pros (Clark, Freeney, Manning) and 1 2nd team (Wayne) along with 7 probowlers (Wayne, Freeney, Manning, Saturday, Clark, Mathis, Bethea).  The 2006 team had 1 first-team all pro (Marv) and two 2nd team all pros (Manning, Saturday) along with 5 pro bowlers (Saturday, Manning, Marv, Reggie, T. Glenn).  So there is some argument there, but we had all the players who made pro-bowl in 2009 on the 2006 team (and 2006 we had Marv, Glenn, and at least at play off time we had a healthy Bob Sanders).
