    I know it may be odd for some of you to root for the Colts.

    It's strange, without Manning for sure.

    But a win by the Colts this week will extend our lead (should we beat the Jags) over the Titans & really doesn't threaten us from a Colts' winning streak.

    go Colts!!!

    I was thinking the same. Then I got scared that it's November which usually means a 4 game skid for us and then The Colts would only be 4 games out.

    I wish but the Colts put Collins on IR (concussion) so his season is done.

    I have been trying to root for the Colts since Week 2. Every time something bad happens to them, I start laughing uncontrollably. Somewhere in the back of my head, logic reminds me that I need them to win a few, so I stop. But then something bad happens again, and without even thinking about it, I start laughing.

    Rooting for the Colts is starting to make me schizophrenic.

    Colts have a whole lot of quit in 'em. Without Manning, no pride.

    Looking at their schedule I don't see a win for them.

    Next week against the Falcons...literally the easiest team for them is the Panthers...and they are not a easy out for anyone right now. Their only hope to get a W is one of those flukey divisional rival games.

    Perhaps one team rest their starters at the end of the season...how ironic if that team would be the Texans?

    Houston, again.
    We REALLY need the Dolts to win 3-4 games (not against us though) so that they are out of the Luck race. We suffered for close to 15 years with Payton and if Luck is anywhere near as good as most seem to think he will be I don't want him in the division haunting us like Payton has.

    The Rams beat the Saints.. so who knows.

    Won't help us any if they're beating NFC teams though. We need them to beat AFC South teams..... AFC at the least.

    I really don't like this line of thinking. You don't see the Bills shaking in their boots or crying because they have to play Brady twice a year for the foreseeable future.

    Luck ain't Manning, & that team without Manning is just another team.

    Pretty much agree here. Plus their D is so bad right now almost anyone can threaten to hang 40 on them. Luck or no Luck they need to figure out things on both sides of the ball.

    As I pointed out in a thread I started a week or so ago, I don't see any more than 1 or 2 possible wins for them... I don't think it's looking good.

    its clear that there problems aren't just at QB. the colts suck everywhere. even their main strength at DE is really old.

    I think the colts should trade away the number 1 pick (if they get it) and fix multiple holes. Houston is good enough to beat the colts with manning or luck now so it might be a good thing they pick luck. and its no guarantee that luck is the next manning!

    Still holds true - I am starting to worry. The last thing we need is for them to draft Luck and he turns out to be Peyton part II.

    I have a better idea, all the other teams in our division take one for the division and lose the the Dolts.
