    Default What do you expect from the Colts this year?

    I will have a poll up soon.

    EDIT - OK, I got up the poll. I realized these may not be that good of options, so if none of the options I put reflect your view, just vote "Other" and explain what you expect in the thread.

    Yes, this is a public poll.

    I made this thread to start up some Colts talk since this board is typically not even used in the off-season.

    Already saw a typo, I put ACF, instead of AFC, in option number two. Wish I could change that.....

    I voted for "Go home early in Jan due to the running game".
    I think they have the potential to do well, but not the probability to go farther than last year. It's just not probable that Manning will break a lot of records like 2 years ago or that the Colts will go 13-0 like last year, especially missing the Edge. When those circumstances occurred, we were still beaten.

    I don't think we're better and other teams are. It's more probable we'll have disappointment, rather than success, in the playoffs. That said, we'll still have a great season, just not a super one.
    Don't thank me, I'll kill ya.

    Yeah, but I don't even give a **** about the season much anymore, I never did, but this year if we're beaten badly by a team, I'll not be "as" pissed as I would be, because hell the Ravens beat the Steelers last year, and is anyone still talking about that? Hell no.

    So, I just want to be in the playoffs and then have our little win streak....

    I expect that the Colts will be one of the 6-7 teams that have a
    realistic shot at winning it all. Beyond that, let the chips fall where
    they may.

    I want to pick a more hopeful choice but I believe past history is always a good indicator of future happenings. So far, the Colts have shown themselves capable of being beaten in the playoffs, if not flat out laying an egg there.
    I haven't seen a whole lot to make me feel that will be any different this season.... other than to rely on the experience of coaches and players in learning from those past mistakes and overcoming them... finally.

    I expect them to have a better season than the Pacers.

    I refuse to get my hopes up about the Colts. I've been disappointed too many times.

    This is the year, we will diffently be in the superbowl. Winning the superbowl is up in the air (seeing what happened last year). We were disappointed the last 3-4 years; last year was the biggest surprise against the Steelers, the Patriots were a dynasty so it isn't an "upset" technically the first 2 were disappointments. I have faith, at least we have a clutch kicker now, and got rid of Vanderchoke.

    At least we truly have a chance, I've been watching the Colts when it was a blue moon type thing; "the Comeback Jim days" lol.

    OK, what do you mean? I'm pretty sure we play them during the regular season, and if they beat us then, it doesn't matter, my thread is asking what do you expect from them and think will happen during the regular season and post-season, not just what one team might do against them.

    Do you mean Super Bowl, then?

    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Win 13-14 games, and actually still kickass in the postseason and win the Superbowl.

    I'm always optimistic before the season starts.
