Hello colts fan here (I come in peace) just wondering what you guys feel about colts one game behind you (pending bears game). Texans fans at all worried colts could threaten division?

anyways im rooting for texans to beat the bears..and a no injury game.

I am not terribly worried, as in the last 3 weeks our 2 teams play twice, and I like the Texans match-up vs the Colts. I think we sweep you guys. That said, you have had an impressive turn around. I dont look forward to playing Luck for the next 15 years.

The Colts have been the surprise of the season.

In fact, I am thinking they could get a wild card spot. I'm not too worried, I feel like they will have a let down.

I will say this though, just because they're having a great season now, doesn't mean they will have one next season. We will have to see how everything plays out.

Not worried for this year, I think we sweep you guys too.

As someone else said playing Luck for the next 15 is more concerning. It will all depend on what the Colts Front Office can build around Luck and if Pagano/Arians can actually coach once they can't trade on emotion.

Just think our team will take care of business while the Colts are on a good run and playing above themselves - they've got games that they'll lose before it comes to the 2 end of season matchups.

Think Tennessee were in a similar position around this stage last season weren't they. They dared to dream, look at them now.

The Colts are playing with a purpose, a lot of heart, and are getting a little better and more confident every week. They beat the Packers at home, so I wouldn't count them out against anyone when playing in Indy. I think that the Texans' last 4 games (Patriots away, Colts here, Vikings here and Colts away) will be a factor in their playoff seeding.

I think we'll be 5-1 in the division, that one loss to the Colts, last game at their place. We'll still win the division though.

Anything can happen but will likely happen is that Indy lose:
@NE
vs Buffalo
@Detroit
@Houston
And may even lose to TN, but I'll count that game as a win for now


Texans will likely lose:
@NE
and one or two other games.

Houston will be 13-2 or maybe 12-3 going into the final game.
If Houston has homefield sewn up, they likely rest their starters and Indy may backdoor into a wildcard spot.

If not, Houston likely beats the Colts and is the only AFC South team to make the playoffs.

Schedule maker did the Colts a favor by putting the Texans games in the last three weeks, otherwise you can bet they would have another loss at this point. But I echo everyone's thoughts on playing Luck in the future, could one franchise literally get any "luckier"?

Lucky
11-11-2012, 05:24 PM
I think the Colts have a good shot at the #6 seed. They've got at least a 2 game lead with a tiebreak advantage over the Jets, Phins, and Titans. For Luck to get a taste of playoff experience as a rookie would be a huge boost to his development.

Titans Sux 72
11-11-2012, 05:25 PM
I think Luck is the real deal and your defense is pretty strong. I also feel the Colts are riding the Pagano wave. Pure emotion and heart. Just like the Raiders when they beat the Texans last year a day after Al died.

I just love the fact that y'all have rebuilt in 1/2 a year and lapped the titans.

And have a good chance to beat the Lions Titans and Minny

thats 10 wins right there plus the main point


we still play yall twice so heck who ever wins thoes games wins the divison simple has that

so my point is we have the luxury to drop 3 games here and there yall have to pretty much win out from here on out and can oly afford to drop one thats pressure IMO

Do texans have a successor to shaub when he retires? does kubiak plan on making yates the new starter or does he plan on drafting a qb? watching yates last year he had his moments but there is times i just dont know he tends to crumble under pressure

Yates and Case keenum are the backups. I think Kubiak wants to try and develop Keenum, but right now that's the backup QBs.

well he wasnt a #1 draft choice, but i like what i have seen from the kid. i think he could be a good manager just like schaub is. Yates will never be an all pro but i feel he could do what schaub has done.

I think it's fairly obvious that TJ Yates is the future guy at QB (for now). I think Keenum will be developed, but, mainly to use as leverage in a trade down the line. Just my opinion.

With a win today, I'm a lot less worried. My worst case scenario, was that we lose to the Bears & the Colts beat the Pats next week.

But, we beat the bears, we play the Jags next week (it's like a bye), so we'll maintain our two game lead with only 5 games left.

I remember some people claimed prior to regular season that our division is the weakest or one of the weakest. This may not tell everything but I added total W and L by division and surprise, our division aint that bad. Of course, some teams played already 10 games and two teams only played 8 games due to Monday night. But, this should give some idea that our division isn't that weak. Of course, anything can happen by the end of this season but so far, we aint that weak.

He was able to fill in part way through the season and lead the franchise to our first playoff win.

Not every QB is going to compare to Manning, even Luck will not be as good as Manning has been.

I'm not worried about the Colts a) I'm just not worried about games that far ahead, and b) I perceive the Colts as overachieving. If they continue to "overachieve" (which won't be overachieving, it will just be being a good team), then I'll be slightly worried about the Colts when that time of the year rolls around (if those games mean anything in the playoff picture)

pay no attention to the condescending homers, deep down inside texans fans are worried about andrew luck and the colts.

i hope we win a superbowl this year or sometime in the very near future because if/when luck gets a team behind him its over for the texans.

great quarterbacks always punish the texans. luck will be a great quarterback. i cant believe the colts get back to back great qbs while the texans have yet to have one in our entire history.

Personally, I worry about the Colts catching us. I worry about every game we play, though. I'm really ticked off that the Colts had Satan Manning for all those years and now they've got a really bright future ahead of them with Luck.

It would totally suck if we drop a couple of games we should win and end up having to fight the Colts off at the end of the year.

Two items to consider:

First, this weekend, we play the Jags, and they play the Pats. Things could loosen up by Monday.

Secondly, we play them two out of the last three weeks of the season. If we go into that three game stretch needing both of those games to win the division, this isn't the team we believe it is to begin with. If we go into those games needing both of them and don't get them, then we flat out suck (and we don't flat out suck).

They are playing good football. However, we are not same ole Texans of the past. We are damn good football team. Look at our remaining schedule. Only game that I see a competitive game would be against NE. Hopefully, this division thing would be over by week 14 so that we will be able to give our starters much needed rest for playoffs and the road to the SB!

The Colts are not as good as everyone acts like they are. They lost to the freaking Jags and Jets. And outside the second game they played vs JAX they've won by 3 points usually. They have an easy schedule and have only played one opponent with a good defense, who was the Bears who blew them out. Head to head we will crush them, Luck won't throw 300 on our defense. They'll probably win the last game against us because we will be resting starters. I'm glad they're playing well because it hurts their draft position and gets them a harder schedule next year.

If it was any other team, maybe. But not the Colts. That history has to be re-written. Luck will endure the sophomore slump next year and they will likely see a 3rd straight year of a playoff drought. Don't let that organization get a sense that they can reload and be back. It'll take more than a little LUCK to recover from the loss of Manning. That run with Manning was also attributed to Dungy and some good personnel decisions by Polian. Now that all of them are gone, I anticipate that team will struggle to find the level of success they ever had under the Manning years. Good LUCK! (not)

I don't think you've expressed one original thought in this whole post. What you just said is exactly what everyone else has said. They've mentioned Luck is playing better than expected, though you didn't say as much, I'm sure you agree. Better than expected doesn't mean we think he's elite.

They play us twice in the next 6 weeks. So even if their easy schedule makes it close, it's not really close. We all agree with that.

As far as making their schedule more difficult next year, it hasn't worked that way since the Texans joined the league & the NFL went to 32 teams. Our schedule is exactly like theirs with the exception that we play Baltimore & Denver, where they play Cleveland & Kansas City. They still have to play the AFC South, just like we do, the AFC East, just like we do & the NFC North just like we do.

I seriously don't think the organization cares about that history. Their primary concern will be getting our guys to the games that matter injury free. If that last game doesn't have homefield implications, We'll probably start sitting key players in the second qtr.

& that's the way it should be.

How is that even possible? We don't play New England until week 14. & Denver's remaining schedule is pretty easy.

Two items to consider:

First, this weekend, we play the Jags, and they play the Pats. Things could loosen up by Monday.

Secondly, we play them two out of the last three weeks of the season. If we go into that three game stretch needing both of those games to win the division, this isn't the team we believe it is to begin with. If we go into those games needing both of them and don't get them, then we flat out suck (and we don't flat out suck).

The Pats/Colts game scares me because the Pats defense kinda sucks and the Colts have enough offense to exploit sucky defenses. Question is, will the ol' gunslinger Brady outduel the young gun Luck. I know this is already an afternoon game but if I were NBC I'd petition to have this game moved to prime time.

I think they have to announce a flex game 10 or 12 days ahead of time. I'm guessing that at that time (and maybe even now without Big Ben), NBC was looking at ratings and thinking Steelers/Ravens was going to outdraw anything else they could put there.

Well if the Ravens can keep winning, there's probably a pretty decent chance.

They actually just flexed this game into the late game, it was originally a noon game.

Yeah, I meant specifically the Sunday Night game when I said 10 or 12 days (NBC announced on Nov. 5th that they were not flexing out of Steelers/Ravens).

Yep, all you're doing if you beat NE on Sunday is increasing their chance of being the #4 seed, and you're chance of meeting them in the Wildcard round (in Foxborough).

I dont beleive texans fans hate the colts organization. You were stuck in same devision with a Elite qb..probably one of the greatest qbs of all times. and for many years texans had a defense that was easy to shred. i have always felt there was a grudge against peyton not colts. maybe im wrong.



well i for one Have haterd for the colts not all but some colts fans would come to houston and talk mad **** and we had to take it .... yeah we couldnt say anything

i hate everyone in our divison and thats the way it should be

Didn't think about it that way. But we've already seen him win a play-off game. You know, win or go home.

I'd like to see how far he's come since a year ago.

Hello colts fan here (I come in peace) just wondering what you guys feel about colts one game behind you (pending bears game). Texans fans at all worried colts could threaten division?

anyways im rooting for texans to beat the bears..and a no injury game.

I'm not worried about the Colts this year, barring injury we should sweep the Colts. With that said the Colts rebuild has been impressive to say the least. With another great draft or 2 the Colts will be a formidable opponent for years to come. I'm not looking forward to facing Luck for the next 15 yrs..

Jags going no where anytime soon.

Titans could improve, but not a whole lot really.

Colts will get better and contend, but won't have a complete structure for another year or two. (or three)

Texans are prime right now, and will be so for at least another two or three years. If they keep drafting right, for much longer than that.

In the end, it'll be the Texans and Colts for a long time to come. Might as well get used to it.

Was hoping for a lil bit more class, was actually rooting for you guys last year with all those injury's. eventually Andre will retire and so will shaub and foster and when you guys are in rebuild mode. and we are thru the rebuild.. and the tables are turned ill try to show a little more class then this guy.

Class? If you think that by NOT wishing the colts into the playoffs at the expense of the texans losing to them shows a lack of class, then I'm guilty as charged.

Look, I respect the colts and believe them to be an organization that shares similar traits with the texans in regards to character and integrity. But that doesn't mean I should have to walk on pins and needles when coltfan wants to come into this forum and drop a thread asking if we are worried.

No. Not worried. Only worried that this organization would consider letting up in week 17 and give a division rival a chance to advance themselves through gift rather than merrit. The colts had a hand in keeping the texans out of the playoffs in years past, so I see nothing wrong or classless in me as a fan wanting the Texans to return the favor. The only difference being that the Texans do it by playing well opposed to the colts having layed an egg in the past.

Speaking of class. :potkettle:

Are you suggesting the colts intentionally tank for a better draft pick? Suck for Luck 2.0 ?
