View Full Version : A Few Reasons for Hope

Today, Brodie Croyle went on the road to face the defending super bowl champs and their #3 defense.
His stat line (19-27 for 169, 1 TD and no INT) is impressive considering we have a Pop Warner OC and no running game.

We were tied until :04 remained.

People, that's the toughest game Brodie will play all year long.

Its all gravy after today compared to the huge odds stacked against a young QB in his first start ever. If he looked this sharp against a truly scary team on the road, he should excel against the rest of our schedule that does not include many legitimate winning teams.

With the AFC Worst playing so poorly (we will be no worse off than 1 game out of first tomorrow night), there's a scenario out there that KC can still win the division and play at home in the post season.

If Croyle can play that well with a dumbed down playbook, no running game and nearly beat the world champs in their house for his first ever NFL start, there's much reason to hope for this season and the next 10 years.

A playoff game is huge, especially for experience for brodie and all the other young guys

That's a possibility.
The thing that impressed me is that there is literally almost no scenario more difficult for a young QB than the one we saw today.

The kid nearly pulled it off. The rest of the schedule can only be easier.

I am with you. Playing like we did today we can beat anybody. We will win next week against Oakland & avenge our loss to the donkeys. Yes you heard me. We will win at invesco this year. We will defeat SD again. Detroit, Tenn and NYJ will fall to us as well. 10-6 division winners here we come. Go Brodie go!!

Especially if our D plays like that. Wow. I was really impressed with the D. And Tamba's name was called a lot. We did benefit from some stupid drops by the Colts receivers, but all in all we beat the living hell out Manning.

Croyle looks like the real deal.

That D didn't have Dwight Freeney. It was a fluke. The Colts are a shell of what they once were and Brodie is a career back-up in the making. - Mecca

Thought I'd say it before he did.

And yes, I agree with you. A healthy ass-pounding of the Raiders is in line for Mr. Croyle next week. His stat line can only get better against a team like the Raiders who gave up 29 pts againt a lackluster Vikings offense without Peterson.

You had to say the real deal didnt you. I remember that tag being applied to Greg "the real deal" Hill. We all know how that worked out.:banghead:

Croyle looked smart and able, not to mention very calm and collected.

And good lord, I kind of feel sorry for the receiving corps having to catch his bullets after dealing with wobble-turds all season, but they'll adjust.

Can't help it... I like the kid.

Yep. I really liked the play where he ran away from pressure and fired a bullet for a first down to Gonzalez. Wonderful.

Can't help it... I like the kid.I hear ya. I almost squirted in my pants when he made that throw to Bowe. Just beautiful.

This could be something great in the making.

We held Indy to their fewest points scored since 12/24/2005.

(And that was when they were resting Manning for the playoffs)

I think it was the first drive, brodie fired a bullet to bowe, and he dropped and he had the look, like o yea i got to be ready to catch brodie balls

(And that was when they were resting Manning for the playoffs)Excellent point. Our D made Manning look average, and that alone is something to be mighty optomistic about.

What do you guys think about the rest of the schedule?
If Croyle looked this composed against Indy on the road, I see good things over the horizon.

KC has a defense we can be proud of once again.

Now, lets work on all the other stuff a bit.

Boone destroyed whoever was trying to block him today.

That catch by Bowe was truly incredible...that he was able to get his feet down.

Croyle is so damn fun to watch becuase he's ours. We drafted him.

and even though I lost my mind watching Herm fold in the 4th, we still have Croyle...

Brodie outplayed Manning AND my expectations.

At no point did he look like he was in over his head, even the announcers couldnt help but to comment on it. Speaking of Tasker & that other pud, i didnt think they were EVER going to drop the subject of Bowes TD.

IT WAS A TD...GET OVER IT!!!

Hali almost had a few sacks, and he caused a fumble...probably his best game

Been a while! I heard the announcers ask how many times in the coming years we'd be hearing the combo of Croyle-to-Bowe in the league.

Perhaps his checking the play sheet is just a ploy to fool defenses like Manning's phony audibles...:shrug:

Can we agree that Croyle had a good debut? If they let him throw and take the freakin harness off him I think we win the game.Oh well still very happy about our Defense and a few players on O ( Croyle and Bowe in particular ).
Was very refreshing to see OUR young QB out there looking so poised.Solari can go to hell!!!!

Considering who and where he was playing, Croyle deserves mucho accolades. It was hist first start in the NFL. My only criticism is that I wish he had spread the ball around more. I'd like to see #88 get more attention. Other than that, the rest of the schedule will be Brodified.

At least give credit to the defense. They played hard. I'm sure Gonther probably was thinking/obsessed about Peyton in his shower.

It'll just take a game or 3.

I think the Colts were mugging TG all day as well. Hard to tell on TV. Once Brodie discovers the security blanket, we might start seeing some arena ball.

I think there is definite potential for our RBs in the passing game as well. Maybe Solari doesn't know that rule that RBs are eligible in the passing game.
