Even if everything were locked up I would imagine that Houston would play to their full strength just to take it to the Colts after we have always took it to them for the most part. Our defense played well Sunday but this is a short time for recovery and this Houston team can run the ball very well. I hope our defense can keep it close. On the Luck situation I have to believe like coach Dungy said that they should trade the pick to someone who is willing to offer a ton of assets in draft picks and players to take a chance by loading up one more time to help Peyton make a chase for another ring. I think we can move a few spots down and still get the QB of the future and get more assets to make our team much better. I think Peyton deserves that much for what he has done for the colt's organization and the Indy community.
The $170+ million he's been paid so far isn't good enough ??
It's not the Indianapolis Mannings. It's the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts will still be here long after Manning is gone. The organization & community deserve doing what's best for the long term.
if the colts blow the chance to get luck.... WoW
Barkley will NOT enter the 2012 draft. One less thing to debate, but with one less qb prospect, that first pick is more valuable.
According to NFL.com via STATS, the Colts will clinch the #1 pick with a loss tonight.

So how do you feel about the #3 pick? I suppose there is some trade value there.........or a really STUD defensive player,
If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around..
Obviously, last night's "win" was a crushing loss in the Race for Luck. Though the Colts are still currently #1 by virtue of tiebreakers, they have the weakest remaining opponent amongst the contenders. A drop all the way to #3 is a very real possibility. We need to pull for a Rams AND a Vikings victory at all costs.
#1 2-13, 122 wins (#3 SOS)
#2 2-12, 127 wins (#2 SOS)
#3 2-12, 130 wins (#1 SOS)
If the Colts lose, they will have the #1 pick regardless of what Minnesota and StL do. They own the SOS tie breaker against both of them.
Colts fans find themselves in a strange position going into the final week of the season. In order to secure the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft they need a loss in the final game of the year against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Colts unexpected two game winning streak has now put them in a tie with the St. Louis Rams and Minnesota Vikings for the worst record in the NFL. The tiebreaker is strength of schedule. In the Colts' case, the lower the strength of schedule, the better.
The Colts still have the lowest strength of schedule among the three teams. Indianapolis' strength of schedule is .547, while Minnesota's is .566 and St. Louis' is .587. An Indianapolis loss tot he Jaguars would be enough to secure the No. 1 overall pick, and likely Andrew Luck. With Jim Irsay's reiteration that Peyton Manning would play in Indianapolis if healthy next year it is not known what the Colts would do with Luck if they get him.
Just lose, baby.
I don't know. I wouldn't call last night "winning" either. I doubt the Colts will have that many tries in the red zone next week.
Ok so we need the Vikings and Rams to lose today, right now the Vikings are 10-10 againts the Redskins and the Rams are 0-10 againts the Steelers.
Half time in both games
I can see Minnesota winning one of their final two, very possibly today, but the Rams look atrocious.
Vikings 23-20 3rd quarter, Rams 0-13 4th quarter.
Minnesota lost Peterson, and Ponder.
Peterson looked nasty. Knees aren't meant to bend that way.
Two missed field goals for the Rams, including a chip-shot. This could be a one-possession game right now.
The Rams clearly want Luck.
Vikings are 30-23 with 10 minutes to go in the 4th quarter.
