We need more than an offense that features JT.  we just do not have enough offensive weapons.

 

 

Pittman is our best receiver - but he is more a possession type of receiver.  Pascal has just about disappeared in this offense. He has not been a factor since early part of the season. TE slot is weak.  Hilton is on his last legs. I do not understand why we do not use Hines more in passing game.

On to next week i guess, win and in ( I think)

 

I did predict 9-8 for this year so at least we will have that if they lose 

I won't talk smack yet but I doubt we lose to that train wreck in Jacks. If we do that we don't belong.

If the Chargers win today, they take the 7 seed and we move up to the 6 seed, meaning as it stands we would be facing Cincy in the first round in that situation. So root for the Chargers today I suppose

no i think we would be out of the playoffs temporarily. the pats would have 5 seed, raiders 6 seed and then either us or chargers are at 7 depending on tie breakers

Really?! Who is 5th?

Patriots, they are 10-6. We would be in a three way tie with the Raiders and Chargers at 9-7, and the Raiders are the odd ones out because of their loss to their divisional rival Chargers. If we win next week, we’re in, potentially as a 5 seed, but no worse than the 6 seed

Nope, Raiders are odd ones out. Three-way tiebreakers are very weird in the NFL, but because the Raiders and Chargers are divisional rivals and the Chargers beat the Raiders earlier in the year, that takes the Raiders out of the three way tie and leaves us and the Chargers tied. Then, because we have the better conference record over the Chargers, we win that tiebreaker, making us the six seed, the Chargers the seventh seed, and the Raiders right outside, looking in.

Titans are looking like they’re gonna be the number 1 seed after today too..bad day all around for Colts fans.

 

Let's not count our chickens here in Nashville just yet. The Titans have a horrible habit of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory when it comes to playoff seeding. Hell, it happened earlier this season when we were #1 and then lost to.....<checks schedule> Houston!

I know Miami and Baltimore losing helps us at least. A lot of these teams are even, this puts us back under the radar so we can get thrashed all week by our fans and media, I still see us getting in as the 7th seed. Strange but fun season. Ups and downs, beat the Pats and lose a game like this haha . That is Football.

Miami is now eliminated, and the Ravens are teetering on the brink after their loss -  we're the 6th seed, thanks to the Chargers win.

We haven’t won in Jacksonville since 2016. Why people keep thinking this will be a walkover is a mystery to me.

Typo.. 2014. Doesn’t make it better, does it?

Sounds like we're due! We haven't lost 2 in a row since September, and this season we're better on the road (5-2) than we are at home (4-5).

Was out of town for a Christmas party today so I didn't get to watch or listen. Just read every post. It Took about 2 1/2 hours. Just  amazed on how there was so excitement the 1st few pages then then how quickly things turned. I'm upset yes, but I also grew up a raiders before  starting to follow the Colts back in 1994. So I have mixed feeling about this game. Not happy this happened with so much on the line though, But I had a feeling the Colts would loose this game especially after seeing the Irish get beat the way they did. It's just the way my luck goes.

@LV-FrontRowgreat win man, I thought we would smoke you guys but you guys have a lot of heart. I like Carr.

 

Right on!

 

Most Raiders fans thought you guys would smoke us as well. I mentioned in another thread that the Raiders are Dr Jekyll Mr Hyde kind of team. I really think their recent 3 wins is a result of covid issues of teams they've played against and the Broncos using their backup QB. The Raiders have had some really big turmoil this year but they are grinding it out. How often do you see a week 5-6 start interim head coach contend for the playoffs?

 

The Colts should win next week especially after they are past their covid issues somewhat and will be able to practice. The Colts have a good team and I hope they make some noise in the playoffs.

    • I was very much against our signing Wentz and vowed to turn a blind eye to the Colts last season… I think it lasted maybe 4 weeks lol. Not only did I watch the games, I also watched Hard Knocks.  I learned that I’m all talk, I can’t back it up. I’ll bleed blue forever. Go Colts! 
    • Brooks will need a year or two.  He's got a tweener type frame. He could be a package guy on the interior if we're trying to one gap the OC, but we've got better options. IMO, he'll end up a PS guy. Johnson could end up on the PS too.    Give Brooks a year or two in a good S&C program. If he can put on some weight and add strength, I'd like his chances at depth NT.
    • Agree in general. But a lot of reviews have called out his slender bottom half. I watched some of his film, and he really struggled at times, even with LBs. 
    • Curtis Brooks has the potential to be the steal of the Draft for Colts by Jaleel Grandberry   Sixth-round pick for the Indianapolis Colts, Curtis Brooks, was impressive in his final year in college and could be the steal of the entire Draft. The 2022 draft class for the Indianapolis Colts is highlighted by the impressive offensive selections of day two. The Colts started their draft by selecting Alec Pierce, Jelani Woods, and Bernhard Raimann. While all three were great picks, and necessary, it was a selection that Indianapolis made on day three that could be the steal of the Draft. In the sixth round of the Draft, with the 216th-overall pick, Indy used its second-to-last pick to select defensive tackle Curtis Brooks out of Cincinnati. Brooks wasn’t highly ranked in the class, he was the 17th defensive tackle taken, and the second by the Colts. However, he flashed some things in college that should have fans excited about his ceiling. Curtis Brooks could be promising for Colts Brooks is just 6-foot-2 and 285 pounds but he played with a lot of explosiveness in his five years at Cincinnati. In his final season, Brooks recorded 57 tackles, 12.5 for a loss, and 7.5 sacks. On his tape, he routinely showcases explosiveness, athleticism, and a high motor as he disrupts runs and gets after the quarterback on passing plays. In addition to his film and impressive advanced stats, Brooks recorded 33 reps on the bench press, had 35.5 vertical, a 4.9 40-yard dash, and graded well in all other athletic evaluation tests. Now, Brooks gets to join a loaded Colts defense as he adjusts his tools to the professional level. He’ll be surrounded by stars and will be able to learn from the Pro Bowler, DeForest Buckner, in addition to other Indianapolis veterans. Despite going in the sixth round, it wouldn’t be a shock if Brooks becomes a really good professional player. Between his tape and his numbers, he has a pretty high ceiling. Hopefully, the Colts will help him reach that ceiling   Data on Curtis Brooks (DT, Cincinnati) from PFF Pass Rush Win Rate: 19.3% (best in class) Run Defense Stop Rate: 13.1% (best) Pass Rush grade: 90.4 (best) True Pass Set grade: 92.3 (best) True Pass Set win rate: 37%!! (best) Run Defense grade: 69.9
