Default Colts Fan Checking In

Now that the Rams game is officially in the bag, I'm checking in here with you all. I'm not here to talk smack or anything like that, I just want to talk football.

I think I am actually coming out of the game tonight very encouraged. The Rams took it right down to open the game, which is the first non-garbage time TD the Colts D have given up. Then the muffed kick, and the momentum was definitely in the Rams favor. Who missed te wide open assignment, I'll never know. But the D knuckled under, and held them to 3 until garbage time. That's encouraging. Last year, this game would have ben won 48-45, one way or the other. The Colts D is still holding to less than 10 points per game, and this was probably the most explosive O in the league that they played tonight. I'm sure Dungy will have a few things to work on. And I'm VERY encouraged with the O. The Rams were getting great pressure, and dropping so many into coverage. And the O still put up 45. Of course, when you're starting where the Colts O did due to the turnovers, it sure helps!

As far as the Texans go, I saw that they may let Carr go after this season. Maybe it's just me, but it sems like he throws fro his back too much to ave gotten a fair shake. I hate to say it, but it will probably be a long day for him come Sunday. But I will say that the Texans always play the Colts pretty tough at your place, and anything can happen. Remember, the Fins beat the Pats last year. Go figure.

Anyway, here's to a great game on Sunday, and NO INJURIES!

First off, our nancy's can in no way cause injury to your team, so take heart in that.

Our team will most likely see a few injuries, my best guess will be whoever we pick up off the streets this week to line up against Freeney.

Lastly, this will be the collegiate equivalent of USC vs. Temple, including the score........68-3 I predict, unless Dungy starts to feel sorry for this poor excuse of a supposed NFL team.

Expect to see the bags soon...........

Here's to a good game.

I came down to houston last year and saw the Texans play truely inspired against the colts. That inspiration looks to be gone, but every dog has it's day, so a competitive game wouldn't suprise me.

I can't help but think Freeney may have a big game though.

So, any insider information on schemes, etc.? I watched you guys on SNF, but was in and out so much I didn't get to see as much as I wanted. What should we look for/expect? Also, if anyone has any questions about our team this year, I'm sure one of us could shed some light...

I expect to see just about every single game record being broken in this game. Rushing, passing, sacks, and TD's. Then we get to hear our awesome coach tell us that we are not executing, that our run game looks good, that the O line looks good, blah blah blah blah. Go Colts

Good luck with the game. I hope Peyton enjoys the Cover 2 umbrella we are going to throw at him on sunday. Should take him a quarter or two to get into the rythym of it. We are looking for our second turnover though.

Its gone. You do have the dog part right though.

Give the points (whatever they are) and bet the house, wife, kids and dog. Next best thing to winning the lottery.

I think I'm still a fan? Just hard to be optimistic.

What is the line in the Houston Indy game? It might actually be worth a bet, if its only Indy by 14 or something

I think the rams game was about a 14 point spread.

Right now the line is about 14-16 points depending on what site you go to. Does anyone know of any trustworthy sites to actually put money on? Hopefully this is not agains forum rules or something.

You would think these guys would have some self R-E-S-P-E-C-T or Bob Mcnair being the Business Man that he is would give the fans a public apology for the bad product he has put on the field, don't get me wrong, but something is going on with this team. Laying down to get Capers the frienldy Coach fired perhaps??? First Overall pick here come the Texans!!!

The Houston Texans are now on the clock...


The Houston Texans select Joe Smith, Punter...

That's what Casserly would do anyway.

Colts 52 Texans -3


Yep Negative 3, and we'll be the first team in NFL history to get penalized for playing so poorly. I can see it now 50 YD penalty on Houston for...


The last game(if you could call it a game) was so bad I had to turn it off. Sorry, watching that one was like seeing your child get spanked by a stranger or something. We had better get the BEST PLAYER available come draft.(Period) You have to. Yeah, we need linemen, etc. How can you pass up Reggie Bush??? The guy is a Bad A** Can you say Priest Holmes II???
The Colts are going to have a record setting day come Sunday. 20 sacks.
