    Certainly it seems anything is possible with this team but i cant see them beating the Texans. They really should have lost to Det yesterday but as RFMia said the lions coaches were really dumb.

    Just saw the Colts have a -16 turnover ratio (31st in the NFL). That needs to improve dramatically to have a chance at a playoff win. I still find it unbelievable that they are 8-4, and barring complete collapse, playoff bound.

    A lot of the Colts stats are totally misleading. They have only 2 wins over teams that are .500 or better(Vikings and Packers). In 3 of their 4 losses they were blown out(Bears, Jets, and Patriots).

    If you throw out those 3 blow-out losses and their statistics change quite dramatically. And one could even argue that they should be 9-3 after giving a gift to the Jags. But the schedule is what it is and they have done a great job of doing what they have had to do.

    With all that being said I cant believe they are staring a #4 seed right in the face and still have the ability to win their division.

    So 10-5 going into the final game. Pagano is back and the Colts will either be playing NE or Baltimore on the road in round 1. If NE wins then its @ Balt, If NE loses and Balt wins then we're on the road in NE. This will be the first time since the 90's I rooted for NE to win anything.

    Regardless of the outcome this has been an incredible season. I have not agonized over every regular season game like this in the last decade. Rookies playing like veterans is always fun to watch. As a baseball fan I know the bell curve does not always apply for growth, but you have to like where this team is headed in the future.

    Amazing season!!

    Colts fans are incredibly lucky to have Manning all those years and now Luck. Also making the playoffs like 11 of the past 12 years with a SB victory makes us a tad bit spoiled.

    Pats fans have to root for the Colts today, too, but we've had practice at it from when you guys play the Jets, that makes it almost too easy.

    Good win today, the Texans looked uninterested to me though. I really think the Colts can win in Baltimore.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    And a win in Baltimore would send us to Denver if the Bengals were to lose. Eek. I don't know if I'm ready for that! It would be really hard to root against Peyton. Heck I named my dog after him!

    Yeah, its not ideal but I'd root against him for the first time ever. But I think Cincy will beat Houston.

    What is Skip Bayless smoking?

    The cold, hard truth: Owner Jim Irsay made a monumental four-year mistake when he ceremoniously cut Peyton Manning last March. And Irsay and his new general manager, Ryan Grigson, compounded that calculated blunder last April by drafting Andrew Luck over Robert Griffin III.

    I think that's the wrong question, the correct question is: what are you smoking that you'd waste even half a second of your life wondering about anything said by Skip Bayless?

    It's not far fetched to say that RG3 would have been a better pick than Luck. Although I felt Luck was the correct pick at the time, I'm having 2nd thoughts now. The way RG3 has shown himself to be coachable and his huge leadership abilities have impressed the hell out of me. It goes without saying that his on the field skills are as advertised.

    He's a great player...

    Anybody debating should see this for what it is.

    Luck had (and still has) a much higher floor than RG3. RG3 has a bit higher of a ceiling.

    RG3 will continue to be a higher injury risk, which is factored into his floor for me.
