    I don't care if they beat the colts, this team is fluke. The secondary is terrible. If the D line doesn't put pressure on QB in one play you can count on a long completion. The offense is inconsistent at times. The special teams is one the worst in the NFL. This team will not make it in the Superbowl let alone wining it.

    Never thought I'd say that I am happy to see Keo get in the game. Yeah, that big Colts TD at the end of the half was squarely on Demps as he sat flat-footed awed at Luck's athleticism as dude ran right past him.

    Demps has been fk'n up too many times, too long. I've got my eyes on Brandon Harris too, some of the calls against him are bull, but that last holding call, no doubt.... that was on him. May have saved a TD, I don't know. So he's got a little rope. But he needs to get his head out of his colon & get it into the game.

    You should have your new thread privileges taken away. You could have posted this in the game day thread.

    11-2.

    When you don't care that the team you are supposedly a fan of WINS, that is fail imo.

    Agreed, but in reality this hasn't been a very good football team over the last 4-5 weeks despite the record. Needing OT to beat two bad teams, a lackluster win over the Titans, getting blown out by the Pats and now today, where the Texans will have to hang on for dear life if they win today, they have simply not been the team that sprinted out to a 7-1 record in the first half.

    That is what scares me. Looks like we'll beat Indy. But it's hardly the angry 'we're going to take last week out on you' beat down I was hoping for. The other 12-2 team is blowing people out, and teams with lesser records are peaking while we continue to struggle...

    A double digit victory over a playoff team is struggling and hanging on for dear life?

    Crack. Smoke less of it.

    When it was 23-17, the Colts just scored a facepalm-easy TD on the ground and had momentum it wasn't a "double digit" game and at the time it did look like it would be a struggle to hold it.

    But go ahead and be insulting if that's your style. I won't go there. I'm certainly glad for the wins and that this team is usually finding ways to win without its "A" game, but this hasn't been a team that has looked like a 12-2 team over the last 5 games or so.

    the secondary isnt terrible, its actually because of the talent back there that we play man 90% of the time. pass rush outside of jj needs to step up.. its tough to leave guys 1 on 1 for long periods of time. especially when you have qbs that can make plays out of the pocket..

    You see what Denver did at Baltimore plus we already seen what Brady and the boys got. Not about record its about playoffs versus the best

    After years of watching this team rack up every stat in the book, but leave
    the wins on the field, my complaints this season are purely constructive.

    They have been leaving with the most important stat of them all, WINS,
    in 12 of their 14 games. That's the best percentage in the NFL, and it's
    also the most important.

    Now it's time to clinch the #1 seed by winning the next 2 games. I just don't
    see New England losing to San Francisco AT Foxboro.

    Yes! For years we have been arguing about moral victories in losses. This team has its flaws, but they're a darn good football team who are now 12-2.

    Maybe you should wait until the game is over before you post nonsense. Then you wouldn't come across like a person under the influence.

    Guess we have no need for game threads then, do we? If we're all supposed to withhold comments or judgment until the game is over, good grief.

    This team is 12-2. I'm happy for that.

    But . . . It's 12 wins and 2 humiliations against teams that have elite QBs.

    Do I like our chances in the playoffs against these teams with their elite QBs? You can figure that one out for yourselves.

    We have zero chance to win a road playoff game unless we step things up quite a bit (and recent history says we won't...I think you could make the argument that the last COMPLETE game we played was vs. The Ravens) . So winning out is looking to be a must at this point. And I'm not sure we beat Indy in Indy after how we played today.

    Good points.

    Hopefully we've got time to get better.

    If we take care of business, we won't be playing any road play-off games.

    We have more than 0 chance.

    I wouldn't put my money on it, but I hope we could pull it out.
