    This was our first road win since we beat the Raiders in our second to last game of the 2010 season:

    I went back and watched this game. Lol we had NO business winning this game, yet we kept fighting and played hard throughout.

    These games are almost even better than the games where we won 12+ games every season. We have zero expectations, zero "right" to win these games, but we are scratching and clawing, doing whatever we can to try and figure out a way.

    This is fun. We should enjoy it--even after losses.

    Actually, we had all kinds of business winning that game, that's the surprising part. The fact we only had 6 points at that time was sort of crazy. When you consider that Indy outgained them 457 to 339, had 30 first downs to Tenn's 20, had commited only 5 penalties to Tenn's 8, and had possessed the ball the same amount of time --- the picture isn't so clearly painted towards Tennessee. It actually points to a pretty even game and one that Indy should have had the advantage, even.

    I'll tell ya what's goin on --- the Colts are better than they seem. That's what's shocking. Their defense is actually doin' a decent job. They have lapses, like against the Jets. But they also string together large periods of time where they're doing well. They've pretty much shut down opponent's run game while establishing their own the past two games. Our patchwork line is actually starting to come together, which we expected, it's been 7 games now and it should only improve. Luck is doing a damn good job. Luck and Wayne have the ability to make plays when it matters, and even moreso late in the game when the outcome is still on the line. That's a *tremendous* trait being displayed by Luck right now. That has been underestimated by the entire league. Luck shines in crunch time. He makes "man" plays. He hangs in that pocket with defenders draped on him and delivers very difficult throws. Or he escapes the rush and makes throws on the run to a very high degree of success. It's a great sign.

    Our special teams isn't bad either.

    Considering that we changed over our entire front office, our entire coaching staff, and almost our entire team, and we have $40mill in dead money and a buncha practice squad players and rookies.... this is a team that by all means should be at the bottom of the league in a lot of categories. But we're actually middle of the pack. It's by no means an indicator that we're a contender...... but we're well above where we're supposed to be right now.

    Honestly, if our receivers could hold on to the ball, and our D could generate a turnover (zero in the last three games) this is a pretty damn well-rounded team!

    I had predicted 6 wins before the year started. To get there we'd only have to go 2-7 the rest of the way. I'm still shooting for 6 wins, but you never know how things go. Anything beyond 6 wins for me is just icing on the cake.

    Looking at the rest of the schedule, it's hard to see us beating the Texans or Pats, so that's a probably 3 losses... but the rest of those games are a complete toss-up. Let's say we win half of those, that's 3 more wins, putting us at around 7 wins on the season. Probly not going to get us into the playoffs, but 7 wins coming off the off-season taht we just had, I'll take it. And next year, we have a full draft in place, and $40mil comin' off the books and the ability to do some major roster tweaking, and our rooks will have a year under their belt.... I'm excited for next year.

    The one thing we need to work on as an offense is "finishing" our drives. We do well moving the ball down the field, but then we either take a sack, drop a pass, commit a penalty; SOMETHING that causes a FGA as opposed to a TD. Its good to outgain an opponent, but if we aren't scoring the ball, it doesn't matter.

    Outside of our secondary, our defense is pretty good. Yes we give up a run every now and then, but aside from MJD's big TD run, and the Jets pounding us into the ground (without Redding in the game) our run defense has consistently been pretty good. Between Freemand and now Angerer, our LB's are running down EVERYTHING.

    I agree, next year could be a breakout year for this team. Sign an upper echelon o-lineman, nab a DB or two, and draft well---and we're looking at a pretty balanced team.

    Clearly. We're a really young team, that's completely normal. I have complete confidence they will get it figured out. The good signs is that we actually move the ball really well. And despite our struggles finishing drives early in games, they have a knack for finishing drives late in the halves.

    Our secondary is actually higher ranked than our rush defense. Pass defense is #7 in the league. Run defense has been inconsistent until the last two games.

    Haha, Luck's no-huddle had the Titan's D so confused, that they had only 10 men on the field for TWO crucial plays on that last drive.

    Psh...they would have only had 9 on the field if RG3 was under center.
