This is not a game thread.
I know very little about the Colts. I haven't seen them play at all. During the preseason there were some that picked them to win the South and be a contender for the AFC.
They did get Matt Ryan but that seems to not be working out. Taylor is supposed to be a beast of a running back and they were supposed to have one of the best OL in the NFL.
So, what has gone on with them. They lost to the Jags and tied the Texans, but beat the Chiefs.
Anyone know anything about the Colts?

Anyone know anything about the Colts?
Where to start?
  • Their owner had a woman die in his house of a drug overdose, but he was never charged with anything.
  • They were a huge part of the Deflategate frame-job.
  • They play their home games in a dome.
  • They threw away an entire season in the "suck for Luck" campaign.
There are 31 franchises in the NFL that I don't like, with varying degrees of animosity. But the Colts are special - they're below the Jets, in my book.

Anything else? Serious question.

Can't agree more Tip. I live here in Indiana and the venom they had for all things NE during the Brady-Manning rivalry years sticks with me to this day. We celebrate every Sunday when they lose without fail...!

Their OLine sucks this year. Running game has disappeared. Matt Ryan was getting mauled and ended with a separated shoulder.
Foles would also have been mauled behind their suck OL.
Ehlinger can run but can he pass effectively in an NFL game? OC was fired last night. Reich is feeling a lot of heat. Irsay wants answers.
Turnovers are killing the Colts. -9 TO differential (Pats are at 0 diff now).

KC took a day off. Just like the Bills did against the Dolphins. And we did against the Bears.
Seems most teams have at least one such day off in a long season. Good news it seems if there is only one.

Cheers

They traded Swiss army knife Hines today. They are folding their tents. This could be a trap game.
If they blow this one, people need to start getting fired. Not the HC, but next level down, yes.

I've actually felt that since the Ravens game, but having a no-show for the Bears game was inexcusable, and no-showing against this putrid Colts team would be even more inexcusable.

I agree.

Fuck the Colts. I despise them more than the Jests.
