Steelers Colts Predictions

We are probably 3 touchdowns better than the steelers but that doesn't matter. Never does. Colts play steelers, steelers win. Even when one of the best kickers in nfl history(Viniatiri) has to miss 37 yard chip shot with seconds left in the game, he will miss it(2019) Missed field goals, dropped passes, ridiculous, and I mean really ridiculous officiating whatever has to happen will happen so the no offense and no defense steelers will win.

 

Without TJ Watt we are probably better than Pitt.  With him I don't think we are.  The Steelers are 2-1 with Watt and 1-6 without him

 

He's that kind of player.  Truly one of the best, most impactful players in the game surpassed IMO by only a couple of QBs and Donald. 

 

He's an absolute game wrecker.  If he's 100% or close, he is going to make things very difficult for the anemic Colts O.

Yea, and our defense should make things difficult for their offense, unless we decide we should play supersoft, triple vanilla zone defense and let Pickett complete pass after pass of 10-15 yards crossing patterns in front of linebackers standing 15 yards downfield like we did against the Ravens last year. I hope we play tough, fast, aggressive defense like we are capable of and keep the pressure on Pickett.

Since I’m retiring this week I may have free time to track it.  Probably not.  
 

But here’s how I’d score people’s predictions:  1 point for the correct winner, 1 point if your winners score is within 6 points, same for losing score.  Minus 1 point for everything going the other way.  
 

So it’s possible to get as many as 3 points or as few as -3.  Accountability!

Well, congrats on that. I'm jealous.

 

I'm itching to retire, but family circumstances and an incentive at work will keep me here through early 2024.

BUT, I have no hobbies, like my work (especially from home, and cut hours), and still enough wits about me to continue, so I can't really complain too much. 

 

To your formula, I'd make a correct guess on the winner to be worth 2 points. I'd want to eliminate the possibility of someone winning the week, while not getting the winner of the game correct. Maybe only those picking the winner goes to our point differential situation, and maybe that's based on the lowest differential.

Hopefully the Colts are smart enough to make sure our tackles are not left alone 1v1 against him.

Chipping was something Reich didn't help out much with, I am sure Saturday and his coaches will make sure that gets done on the T J Watt end.

Good point on the points!  I’m actually retiring two years later that my initial plan.  They allowed me to work from home if I stayed.  It was great, but enough is enough.  
 

You’ll get there!

I had to go with the pattern.   

Colts haven't won an opening game in many years.  They tied Houston.

Colts haven't won at the Jags in many years.  They got blown out this season.

Colts haven't beaten the Steelers in many years.  They will lose tonight.

Colts have not lost 2 in a row this year with Matt Ryan at QB. So, that pattern tells me they alternate again with a win vs Steelers and loss vs Cowboys. Then they win on bye week followed by a loss to the Vikings, and a win vs the Chargers keeping their undefeated streak vs AFC West going, and a loss to the Giants and then a win vs the Texans. 3-3 down the stretch. :)

Not so sure.

 

This is not the same steelers team of the past.  They are no juggernaut.  They don't have Ben anymore.

 

They are 3-7.

 

I like our chances.

Very, very true.

But wouldn't it be ironic when a loss to them would be more beneficial to us than a win because of the  draft they DOUBLE CROSS us and lose  ??? :funny:

I was very optimistic about this one until the Practice reports. If we're missing both Buckner and Ngakoue in addition to Paye, we'll be vulnerable on defense as well as offense.

 

Still thinking we might win, but it will be close. 20-17 Cots.

 

Past midnight where I live, will be a struggle waiting for the game and keeping awake during halftime...

Buckner is in the building. Haven’t seen all the arrivals yet so don’t know about Yannick.

 Watt is the one guy that could wreck us by himself.

 20-16 Colts!!

I had to laugh because this is true. :thmup:

We know the group lol....

 

And in one particular.. I can probably predict his exact posts this week... If the OL improves, or is horrible... Or if Ryan plays well, or plays bad... I know what to expect...

My prediction.... the negative Nancy group will say....

 

If we lose.... the Colts are bad, and we can't ever beat Steelers

 

The same group, if we Win... the Steelers are a bad team, and that's the only reason why we won.. Indy is still bad... 

Honestly, I think there a lot of bad teams out there. I think a lot of people including me thought there would be a lot of elite teams this year, but man just take a look at the landscape. Just a lit of under achieving teams and qbs. I am not sure what it is. Maybe the defences are starting to catch up or the salary cap is making more of an even playing field. Even the good teams don't scare me at all. The Colts won't make the play offs but if they did I would say they could beat any of the play off teams

To me.. wouldn't say it's simple... but it's not a mystery either. 

Parity due to cap and roster ebb and flow. There are just no super-teams this year. 

It's a year when the worst teams can beat the best teams..
