    I think they will lose in the Wild Card round. This team has a lot of holes and makes a lot of mistakes. Are they ready to go on the road and win a playoff game? I'm not convinced they are.

    Let me add though that nothing would surprise me. I've been wrong about them a lot this year and hopefully I am again. At the start of the season, I thought they would be a 4-5 win team tops and never in a million years thought they would make the playoffs. I didn't really start thinking playoffs were realistic until week 9 when they beat Miami. Good thing the Colts don't listen to me...

    Luck has become a lot better with his turnover situation, as of late, in the past two weeks he has not thrown an interception and that both have been on the road against to pretty decent secondary...

    We barely beat the Chiefs. We're not winning a playoff game.

    Barely beat a lot of teams this year.

    Anything can happen in the playoffs.

    I could see us winning the Wild Card game, or losing it.

    I think any team that qualified for the playoffs has a shot to win it all. Even the WC teams are dangerous.
    Minnesota has proved that AP can carry them to win games.
    Cincy is dangerous if AG Green and Dalton are on.
    Seattle has been smoking everybody as of late.
    Washington is the hottest team in the NFC.
    GB has all the tools and experience to get it done.
    SF, if they show up, can beat anybody.
    Atlanta has a very explosive offense and has home field throughout the playoffs.
    New England is New England and are always a threat to win the SB
    Denver is the hottest team in the AFC and appears unbeatable if Peyton is on
    Houston, if they can get it together, has talent on both sides to beat anybody
    Baltimore can win if their sometimes explosive offense shows up
    Indy has shown all year that if the game is close, Andrew Luck will find ways to win.

    This is going to be an awesome post season

    Our best chance is opponent plays poorly and game is close in 4th. No way we can beat a division champ playing decent or better, especially on the road.

    The way Peyton Manning is playing, I'm wondering how it would have turned out had he stayed. I never thought he'd return to 100% let alone play better than almost any year as a Colt.

    He'd be dead behind this offensive line. Luck's success comes from his mobility. Our offensive line is down there with Arizona's and Philadelphia's. Peyton might as well retire if we didn't cut him because he would get hurt right away. Castonzo has given up double digit sacks this year and he's supposed to be our best O-lineman!

    We could have fixed the line with the king's ransom of goods we would have received for the Luck pick. I'm not saying that would have been the right thing to do, but we almost certainly would have fixed the line with all of the stuff we would have got for the pick.

    To all the nay-sayers ............ They beat Green Bay. They beat the Vikes. Against Houston, it was 23-17 and they had the ball.

    Completely outplayed yesterday, but they won the game.

    We need to add a 'Who Knows' option to the poll. I wouldn't be so quick to totally dismiss the Colts in any game.

    Just because someone doesn't think this team will win a playoff game, let alone a superbowl, doesn't mean someone is a "nay-sayer". Just look at the facts, wins against GB and MIN are our only wins against teams over .500. We've played the second easiest schedule in the league, and we struggled to beat the worst team in the league (though it was a tough matchup)

    I wouldn't be surprised if we somehow made it to the 2nd round, but I also wouldn't be surprised if we got blown out. Either way, it's been a successful season thus far, so any thing positive that happens in the playoffs is simply a cherry on top.

    Doubtful, the Rams still haven't gotten the fruits of the trade for RGIII. Teams are built through the draft anyway so it was unlikely that a core of rookies would instantly shore up the line or played to Peyton's expectations.

    You're probably right. I think we could have gotten a lineman or two from a team though. But yes, there's no way the line would have been could enough for Peyton. Luck has survived by making athletic plays on his feet, something that Peyton would be incapable of doing at this point.

    If we lose our first playoff game, that means that this season will have the same ending as 7 of Manning's 13 seasons here. We didn't make the playoffs in two of them, advanced in the playoffs in four of them, and lost our first game in the other seven. I get what you're saying about Manning playing great, but Manning's presence certainly does not guarantee a deep playoff run (or winning the first game for that matter).

    It really depends on whom we play against. I'm really not scared of Baltimore if we play them first. If we somehow play Denver, I really like our chances against them. I can see this team in the AFC championship vs NE

    Where's the 2-14 option with no playoff hopes for 5 years option...I don't see it...

    Anyway, I think they got a shot against Baltimore, if it's New England they got no chance.

    Let me put it this way. If this is a one possession game in the 4th quarter, my money's on Luck. My feeling says that we will be out of it by then, but who knows.
