I'd have felt much better about their chances had the Colts gone out and handed it to Jax today.
    Are the Colts going to get a new coach and new approach this week? Because unless that happens they will not come out fired up, getting fired up is not the Colts way or Coach Dungy's.

    Yep. I'd start the game out running Rudy right at them. Not only because you can run against the Colts, but also because of ball control/time of possession.

    I believe the Bengals have the better weapons. If the Colts try to adjust to stop the run, then the Bengals "trio" of receivers will have solid games.

    If the game is allowed to be a shoot-out, then I'd be somewhat worried if I was a Bengal fan....

    Re: Anyone following the Colts game?

    I'm sure Baltimore said the same thing about the Bengals a couple of weeks ago. When defenses are exposed THAT BADLY, it has the tendency to wake them up and to fix the problem. It's a mistake to think that because the D was so bad the last couple of weeks, it's going to continue to be that bad all the time.

    ON a positive note, yesterday was a great day for the Bengals. The Jets, Chiefs, and Broncos all lost. Heck, had the Jags lost it would have been a perfect day.

    Re: Anyone following the Colts game?

    Remember, the people saying Jacksonville wouldn't win were basing it on the fact that Indy would be all fired up after losing the previous week and 2 out of last 3.

    All fired up doesn't mean crap if you can't stop the run. Indy has a serious problem.

    Re: Anyone following the Colts game?

    Next Monday should be a very good game...unless you like defense. Having Deltha back in the secondary should be a big help if for no other reason than to push Tory to the nickel back spot.

    Is Bob Sanders supposed to be back next week for Indy?

    If Rudi carries the ball 35+ times, the Bengals will win. (Acually, they've never lost with him carrying 25+ times, but it will take more against the Colts.)

    I haven't wanted to buy into that but I am starting to. As much as I like Dungy I've got to say that this is on him. Even with Tampa Bay his teams started out hot then faultered at the end of the season. That's two completely lack luster performances in a row. I would have thought losing to a bad Titans team would have brought some life to this team. And I think you're right if they don't completely change their approach I wouldn't be surprised if the Colts don't win another game, maybe Houston, maybe.

    I was going to start a new Colts thread, but I did a search just in case we had one in the past. This isn't technically a Colts thread, but it'll do. It's really funny to read some of the posts in this thread considering how the season in question ended up. Especially this moron:

    That dude has no idea what he's talking about.

    Anyway, I know there are a few Colts fans on this board and I figured we could use this thread to discuss the season.

    I've been really impressed with the offense all season. I'm not sure if they've ever been better, I think Manning having a full training camp and pre-season has a lot to do with that. And since the Miami game the defense has looked good also. I'm pretty pumped for how this season could turn out (hopefully we don't have to play the Chargers).

    EDIT: Guess we didn't have a "Tavern" back then. I'm sure this can be moved.

    Not sure if the Colts Offense is that unstoppable or the Titans D just looked that bad.Either way another good day for Peyton who just makes it look routine just another day putting up 300 + yards passing.

    Yeah, the Titans D is pretty bad this year. He's made it look pretty easy against pretty much everyone they've played this year. And I guess really Miami is the only team they've played with a really good defense. He put up 300+ yds against them with less than 15 mins total offense time of possession.

    It's remarkable that in the Colts' super bowl year, they looked as vulnerable during the regular season as they have since they began the playoff run. They lost three games in the division. Gave up 375 yards to the Jags on the ground. Gave up 153 yards to Ron Dayne in a loss to the Texans. They were on the whole mediocre for the last 8 weeks of the season. Fortunately Norv Turner can't coach the Chargers against anyone but the Colts.

    Re: Anyone following the Colts game?

    FWIW -- until Dungy won that Super Bowl, that quote summed up his career: nice guy, good defensive mind, good coach, teams fold in the playoffs. It's what got him bounced from Tampa.

    Dungy proved a lot of doubters wrong, but that doesn't mean the position being taken by the doubters was illogical.

    Re: Anyone following the Colts game?

    I'm not so sure about that. In the NFL, samples are so small, that it's virtually impossible to draw conclusions on that kind of thing. It's damned hard to win "the big ones" in the NFL. Very few teams do it consistently that a coach coming up short in those games a few times does not necessarily mean they're incapable of coaching in them.

    The fool who made the statement that you responded to had not clue about anything either.....That was me. I really like the team this year, I like Caldwell and Peyton is on fire. It seems to me the Colts only weakness is the running game and I am not sure if we cant run the ball or just dont have to.
