never give up hope


Recommended Posts

I posted a few weeks ago I still have not given up hope. This team is getting better every week. Our season is on the line this week. A win and anything can happen . We have got to limit Henry to no long runs in my opinion and we have a good chance of winning. Lets get the win and see how this thing pans out. We always win a game we are not given a chance in . (gb last year ) . anyways go colts

Actually, even though this game Vs the Titans is must-win, if we do win it, we are only one game behind them in the division and we are 4-4 after 8 games. So it's still anyone's game as of right now. The team just has to play and coach like this game Vs the Titans is a playoff game. May be the most important single game of the season left considering we can get a win and give Tennessee a loss.

Titans is a must win if we want to compete for the division. Even if we lose I think we will still be very much alive for the wildcard. Although would have to beat some of the good teams on the second half of our schedule, Bills, Bucs...Cards.

Right now, we have to operate on the basis "Titans is a must win if we want to make the playoffs since tomorrow is never guaranteed."

Actually, while I think the team is getting better I also see the Titans getting better too.

 

IMHO, I think we're fighting for a wildcard spot.  We need teams like the Browns, Chiefs, and Steelers to lose as much as we need to win.

 

In my mind, this season is a win though.  We have a franchise QB.  Not a lot of teams can state that.

I hate to say it, but the Titans look like a legit contender, solid on both sides of the ball. Colts are going to have to get better defensively, pass rush in particular. Maybe the new guy, Odeyingbo, will will eventually start and be a difference-maker.

The Titans have turned in to who we expected them to be. And maybe even come out a little better than we were expecting. The Jets game was an anomaly. Lots of you guffawed over that one, how’s that working out for you now?

 

This team just needs to win every Sunday at this point. Regardless of who is on the other sideline. The only thing we can do to help ourselves is win. 
 

At this point the goal of this season is to wring as much value out of that 1st round pick we’re losing to Philly as we can. No higher than 16th.

I wouldn't count on that.  I hope he helps but I think we have capable players on the D line.  Our scheme doesn't help.  I blame Fluse for that.

 

How many times when we have the opponent on 3rd and long do we only rush 4, put no pressure on the QB, and let him scan for the open spot in the zone?  It happens way too often, even with average QBs.  Good ones eat it up.

Unless you are me....then give up hope every week before we go down two scores lol.  Seriously, every time I step away from watching....we do well

Interestingly right now, 538 has the Colts at 50% to make the playoffs, ahead of CLE, KC and PIT. That's for the 7th seed. 

 

That seems high. But they must be basing this off of future schedule. CLE is a win ahead of us and KC has faced a monster schedule so far (and have a proven baseline). No idea what to think about PIT.

If we beat the Titans at home this weekend, we have a two game home stand against the Jets and Jags. If we beat Tennessee, we should be 6-4 in a few weeks’ time.

 

With that being said, the team has to focus on Tennessee. If we don’t beat them, we’re playing for the wild card in a wild card-heavy AFC.

I will point out, no Mayfield, as the DRs wont allow him right now. Pit, is what they are an average team at most. KC, has the SB hangover effect

I would guess Mahomes would be out next week at least.

 

nasty nasty knee to the head if you haven’t seen it.

So far, none of our results have surprised me. I was surprised by how we had BaLt on the ropes, but the result was the same.  They aren’t as good as advertised though.  Shoulda lost to us and the knee cap biters.

 

I hope to be surprised by this week’s result.

Titans had 2 good wins in a row, but I don’t think they’re unbeatable by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, they’re probably primed for a nice kicking this week. Despite how well they played yesterday, they still have holes in their secondary and pass blocking. I like our chances.

Perfectly stated. There is a shot at the division, but the light is dimming a bit. I am loving the team though....the way it's being built, and how that bodes for the future.

At 3-4, Colts are tied for the 7th seed.

The other teams on our level?  The Patriots, Chiefs, Broncos, and Steelers (at 3-3).

 

Our remaining schedule has 5 teams with winning records (vs Titans 5-2; at Bills 4-2; vs TB 6-1; at AZ 7-0; vs LV 5-2)

Patriots remaining schedule has 5 teams with winning records (at Chargers 4-2; vs Browns 4-3; vs Titans 5-2; at Bills 4-2, vs Bills 4-2)

Broncos remaining schedule has 5 teams with winning records (at Cowbows 5-1; vs Chargers 4-2; vs Bengals 5-2; at Raiders 5-2; at Chargers 4-2).  They also have 2 games vs the Chiefs as well.

Chiefs remaining schedule has 6 teams with winning records (vs Packers 6-1; at Raiders 5-2; vs Cowboys 5-1; vs Raiders 5-2; at Chargers 4-2; at Bengals 5-2)

Steelers have 7 teams with winning records (at Browns 4-3; at Chargers 4-2; at Bengals 5-2; vs Ravens 5-2; vs Titans 5-2; vs Browns 4-3; at Ravents 5-2)

 

I think the Chiefs have the inside track on the 7th seed, simply because they play more of their tough games at home.

The downside for the Colts is that their 5 teams are some of the best teams in the NFL.

 

It's not out of reach, but it's gonna be hard to do.  Gotta win this one first.  Beat the Titans, and get very, very much in the thick of it.

    • Overall, i think we're lucky to have this coach. I think it could be plenty degrees worse, maybe that's more an indictment on the overall level of coaching in the league presently but given the circumstances he's faced, and what i see other coaches do around the league weekly, i think we're fortunate.   Now i do wish he'd learn from some of the mistakes he makes. Some of them seem to be repeated but shoot, that's a league wide issue. EDJ Sports have a coaches ranking they put out weekly and Reich is almost always hitting weekly top decisions. It's easy to say he needs to give up X or Y, but then what? What're the odds that a new play caller can sustain a top 8-10 offensive output with our personnel (which i think isnt as great as some think but that's another story for another time, i'll face one battle for today lol)     "EdjSports analyzes every coaching decision during the course of a season. The EdjFootball model enables an in-depth examination of all critical calls (4th downs, PATs, and kickoffs), in terms of the amount of GWC at stake. The coach’s play-calling choices (run, pass, field goal, punt) are assessed at the point of decision (pre-snap) and rated with respect to their impact on winning the game. As a result of this process all play calling decisions can be objectively classified as either optimal decisions (correct calls) or suboptimal decisions (errors). The EdjSports Coach Rankings are based on this methodology and consist of two main components that result in the overall ranking."
    • Well, we are trotting out our players with specific instructions not to talk or shake hands and play flag football only, aren't we?     On a serious note, if it is Covid going around with the Texans, I know we have a bye week after this but the last thing I want is any exposure to our players ending up in guys missing games. 
    • Yea it's unfortunate. I still would add a wr during the off-season to be on the safe side. That way we are covered if or if he doesn't work out
    • This is turning into a classic "I see it a different way and going to continue providing and explaining specific situations that support my case till you see it my way" for 1 poster (that poster knows) vs the rest of the forum posters here. Been here, done that before. Speak your piece, and after a few pages, everyone knows where you stand. Folks should just learn to agree to disagree with posts quickly or just know to walk away shaking their heads in disagreement. Save yourself the stress, otherwise you end up realizing you might be p**ss*** into the wind and end up messing yourself in the process.  
    • I agree the Tampa and Patriots games are the two I wanted to win the most. We nearly had Brady. Hopefully we can out fox Bellichick.
