Default Are the Indy Colts now the best team in the AFC South ?

IMO their victory today was more impressive than the Texans win 2 weeks ago in Reliant.

Default Re: Are the Indy Colts now the best team in the AFC South ?

Yes.

I just thought, a few weeks ago after our first game against them, that we would have 2013 and they would take over in 2014.

After today, it's been accelerated to 2013.

Yes, the Colts are better. Their QB can actually maneuver and still read progressions properly. Ours is going to one WR and he either falls down or throws it away if the guys is not open or he has a defender near him.

Having a proper QB, a stable QB, is the difference.

Talent wise across the board no. But they have the better QB and in the NFL that's what matters.

I expect them to win the AFC South next year unless we make some changes to our offense.

No.

Going forward into next year I still don't think they will be better nor will they be favorite to win the division.

I think we need to plan on winning the suck-for-Luck....I-mean-Manziel race.

1-15 ought to do it. We'll win one game in Indy.

It's all about how they are playing right now. The system we have right now, people want to look at our records & say, "that's who you are" when in reality, it doesn't always work that way.

There have been many times where we were playing better at the end of the year than the other teams in our division, but since we screwed up those first 12 games.... it didn't matter.

It's easier for our fans to see it when it's another team playing better than our record. Don't know why it's that way, but it is.

The Colts are playing better than we are right now. They are the better team in the AFCSouth right now. They're play off expectations are probably higher than ours right now.

We'll hang the banner next season, but we've got a lot of work to do.

Unfortunately, yes.

Those expressions on the Texans bench just said it all. Nice two year run, but unless the Texans get a new QB with some ability, the Colts will own the South.

We have to be rid of Kubiak in order to go in that radical of a direction.

Manziel will be a sophomore next year...Kubiak will be here at least 2 more years. Would have to hope that Kubiak gets fired after 2014 and that Manziel skips his senior year. Any earlier, and we can't even TRY for him...let alone GET him.

Plus, he might just be another Tebow. A college phenom who cannot hack it in the NFL. And there's no way Kubiak would even consider a scrambling, exciting QB. Would just remind him of his own failures behind Elway back in Denver.

We're screwed for at least 2 more seasons. McNair will not move on from Gary until at least two more pretty uninspired seasons by the team.

We're hosed until 2015 at the earliest. I just will have found another NFL team by then.

Andrew Luck had 19 TDs and 18 INTs against the rest of the league this year. He had 4 TDs and zero INTs against the Texans.

Default Re: Are the Indy Colts now the best team in the AFC South ?

They're definitely the hardest playing team in the AFC South. I can't put my finger on it, but the effort the Texans give has diminished greatly. The Texans had everything to play for, the Colts nothing. And it was the Colts that played as if their season depended on this game. I don't get it.

I'd say the Texans are still the most balanced team in the whole NFL; we're equally crap in all phases of the game.

Default Re: Are the Indy Colts now the best team in the AFC South ?

Not to be argumentative, but, ya know, I didn't really see a lack of effort on the field (I don't think). I saw the right side of the Oline suck (just because they SUCK) and Schaub unable to cope with it--so much so that he sucked even when they protected him. I saw predictable play-calling on O. I saw some great play-calling for the opposing offense and a QB who put the dang ball in his receivers' hands.

That's about it, besides those black & white, striped Colts players.

I really did not see any lack of effort on any part of the D. Stupidity maybe, but not lack of effort.
