Bumping this thread back up. I didn't see it tonight, and I'm really worried about the Colts.

I'll just quote myself from early in the season.

The LG is not doing so great either.

We got this.

When we win the Super Bowl & the rest of us are saying I never doubted, remember some of you doubted.

In 2001, the Patriots lost 5 games & probably had no idea what was coming.

I still believe in this team. So you can count me in as someone who never doubted.

Seen crazier things happen then this.

I wonder what it felt like to be a Colts fan the season they won the Super Bowl at week 14.

Heck, we were an 8-8 team & were the last team to beat them that year.

Doesn't matter right now. Anything can happen in the playoffs and we're guaranteed a spot in the playoffs.

You know, Young or Dilfer made a great point about it.

Just a year or three ago the Pats smacked around the Jets in the regular season...we know what happen in the post season...

this game should help them understand how important it is to get HFThroughout.

I know the Packers beat us at home. But right now it's the only card we hold (& we still hold that card) to change this game. We can't feel good about going to New England in January.

There is still time to get the defense back on track, but the last 4 weeks have been brutal. They can't win a playoff game, much less a super bowl with the way they've been playing.

Giving Foster his big payday and dumping Winston is looking worse every day. The O-line just looks bad at times and gets manhandled way too often. It affects everything else we want to do on offense.

I'm not going to jump off a cliff over a stinker, but this team has some problems right now.

Default Re: Do we have a Super Bowl team or not?

In an era were people would rather make the "bold" more likely prediction that the Texans won't go all the way... I'd like to buck that trend.

Fact is, you aren't smart if that's what you are predicting. There is a 1 in 32 and by playoff time, a 1 in 12 chance of winning the Superbowl, so the odds are ever not in you favor.

Can't stand the ficklness. Makes me sick to my damn stomach and makes me want to punch someone in theirs because of it. F'n fairweather Houston fans... I bet half of you jumped off the Rockets bandwagon too when they went down 3-1 to the Suns...

I'd like to think so, but I'm not seeing it. If we're going to keep throwing the same guys out there, we're not going to get any pass rush. Barwin..... it ain't happening. They don't feel like Braman is going to help.

I wish there was an elite pass-rusher out there looking for a job, but somehow I doubt it.

I don't think a lot of you know what a bandwagon is. Those of us that have been around since the beginning and have invested both emotionally and monetarily have the right to *****. Identifying problems and bitching about them is what fans of teams do when they aren't happy. And how do you make fans happy so that they don't *****? You win. You win the games that matter. When you suck, you can get away with just winning. When you're supposed to be the best team in the AFC, then you win the games against the other best teams. It's really not that complicated.

When your team loses a meaningful game and you just sort of shrug it off, then you probably aren't emotionally invested enough to be on any bandwagon to begin with. If you criticize the fans that are passionate enough to demand perfection and ***** when they don't get it, then you just don't know WTF you're talking about. But at least maybe you care.

Don't question people's fandom. It's disrespectful for one, and even more, it just makes you look like an imbecile.

This isn't directed at anyone in particular; it just always comes up after a big loss when the really passionate fans start sniping each other. In case you hadn't noticed, take a look at some join dates on this board and think back to those teams. Then consider that most of those old timers came over from the board migration, so in actuality have been a part of this FAN community from the start.

Default Re: Do we have a Super Bowl team or not?

Eh, there are realistically only 3 contenders in the AFC - Texans, Broncos and Pats. We have beaten one of them and got crushed by the other. Not a bad place to be.

Furthermore, unless we implode, we are going to have a bye - meaning we will only be two tough wins from a Super Bowl (still likely both games would be at Reliant).

Clearly we are not a very good team right now but we have time to pull things together...and I think we will do just that.

I knew that right side of our O-line was horrible coming in the game, but I didn't it was this catastrophic. I blame this game heavily on the right guard and tackle. Getting blown up by Wilfork was one thing, not sliding to pickup blitz by LB's is unacceptable.
