I think we have a good shot at winning the Patriots game. If our O-line gets back to normal, I think I would even favor the Chiefs.

No, the Patriots aren't very good this year. The only reason they'll make the playoffs is because they play in the East.

We SHOULD beat them.

The Colts are VERY good. That being said, the Pats don't look good at all. I sure am glad we didn't keep that Lilja guy. It's not like we need a replacement for Shields in the near future. :shake:

Colts aren't this good either. Their D'll be exposed by a good rushing team. I think the Bolts and Steelers would beat them.

I think even we match up with them well.

We really do... we have a power running game and Gonzalez can run free through their zone coverage. Stopping Manning is another matter altogether but Gun got after him and rattled him last year... I think we can play right with them.

I think they'll have the best record in football. I don't think they fit the profile of a Super Bowl winner though. I think they'd be ripe for an upset.

The only thing preventing us from matching up really well with New England is our lack of a pass rush.

Ugh. Patriots are thoroughly average this year. The 4-4 record they will have after this game, and the Win, lose, win, lose, win, lose approach they have taken all indicate that they are just that -- average.

The Colts, meanwhile, are really good, and really want revenge, so the result is no shock.

They're better than they've been in the past because their D's a little better, but they're FAR from unbeatable; and people can definitely have their way with their D.

Steelers have a good chance of beating them, IMHO. The Colts are very good, but I agree, hardly unbeatable.

But, LOOK OUT, their schedule is weak -- they have a CHANCE to go undefeated this year because of that. Not likely, but not impossible, because their schedule is truly weak.

I am, and was a long time ago.

Something about this team isn't right though. OUr injuries have been ruinous, but we're also just flat not playing well in areas that shouldn't be THAT affected by injuries. But the margin between good defense adn bad is pretty thin. We went from very good to '01 to VERY bad in '02, and then to great in '03. All it took was a nose guard and upgrading a couple guys in the secondary.

Yeah, we might win the divison by default. AFC East is 10x worse than anyone really expected. Jets are completely ruined by injuries -- not a smany as the Pats, but to more critical positions (like QB).

Bills also took serious injuries, and have a QB problem.

In fact, the whole AFC East QB situation, other than Brady, is a total joke.

But at least we're not the NFC North...

I'm still not sold on the Colts.

But I am admittedly biased because of all the media slobbering on Peyton's mangina.

If the Colts should get to, and win, the SB, though, we might as well rename the league the "Manning Football League".

Not sure we aren't already at that point, anyway.

Yeah I just realized if the Jets had been able to pull out that goal line play yesterday they'd been a game out of first, despite all their injuries. That's crazy. They're still only two back.

Yeah, but the opposite is true, there are plenty of Manning haters who never would give him credit until he won a playoff game, and then after he did that because the Patriots owned him (until now) and he couldn't beat them. I wonder what the new reason would be.

Unless the Pats get healthy, and can get back to generating pressure on Manning, and playing physical at the LOS on the WRs, they won't beat the Colts.

The Steelers will.

I don't know, two Mary disciples with chokatude to spare, squaring off. The jaw has made it to the SB, but look at how many AFC championship games he has taken to get there. Now consider the game will in all likelihood be played in the RCA dome. The Colts are are balanced enough with James running and deep threats down the middle to pressure the Steelers safeties. That young dude with the hair is good, but not in deep coverage, especially when he has run duty. It will be one for the ages.

They still haven't played a good defensive team or a team that physically pounds the ball on the ground and runs the clock ie: Pittsburg or Jacksonville or San Diego which the Colts have to play in the coming weeks.
I'd put Denver in there but their psyche is so fragile when it comes to playing the Colts. ROFL

The Bugeaters play the Mildcats this Saturday in Lincoln. If the Bugeaters drop this one I expect to see a public lynching of Callahan and Petersen from a crossbar. I'm going to the game so I'll hang around to watch it if that were to happen. :thumb: :D

I hate Manning. They even make him into an ass on Madden, running all over telling players what to do, just throw the damn ball...

I especially love when he plays at Arrowhead, he invents some retard sign language thing since no one can hear his nuggets of pure genius due to the noise...

Indy sort of reminds me of the '03 KC, weak schedule and lack of playing anyone leads to an awesome record...

Maybe we can return the favor and win a wild-card game, then beat Indy at the RCA Dome.

I can dream right?

We've proven we match up well with the Colts. It would be a matter of whos defense had improved the most. But I have to admit, they have played better in the last couple of games. It still puzzles me when Gunther goes into a shell and plays that shitty prevent which almost cost the ballgame Sunday. I don't know why he just can't keep attacking and staying with what was working. :hmmm:

Gravedigger
11-08-2005, 05:12 AM
Ummm the reason the colts are 8-0 is cause they've faced easy ass teams all season long which boggles my mind why the NFL would do that. Don't get me wrong they're a damn good team but if they would have faced any good teams yet they would'nt be undefeated. And there is no reason why we shouldnt win the next three games leading up to denver and then kick denvers ass.

I don't think the Steelers would beat the Colts, especially in Indy.

It has always been my observation, and contention, that physical defenses that hit the receivers at the line, and get constant pressure, and hits on Manning, effectively neutralize Manning.

Almost every QB, when faced with constant pressure will play at a lower level.

However, many of them, Green, Brady, and Rothlesberger, just to name a couple or three, will stand in and take the pounding.

Manning, on the other hand, well, you can see the transformation into pussy right before your very eyes.

It's almost like freakin' magic.

That is the reason I think Pittsburg beats them, even in Indy.

That is the reason that NE owned him until this game.

The Patriots D this season, is not the same Pats D of the last couple seasons.
