    Default 2013 AFC South Champs!!

    Nevermind the fact that the defense gave up 40+ points for the second time in 3 weeks and we've been outscored 114-24 in the last six first halves. Oh and third double digit loss in the last 5 games... doesn't matter. We're AFC South CHAMPIONS!!!


    Bring on the defending Super Bowl Champs or the KC Chiefs. Who's ready??!!

    Ok I'm being very sarcastic, but I'm not feeling much of a reason to be excited. Da Rick Rodgers played well and Brazil had his coming out party but the line was still terrible and the defense can't stop anybody. I know there are alot of injuries but every team has them. The Colts depth just isn't where it should be. The depth problem will only get worse once Andrew Luck signs his next deal after his rookie contract. I know the officiating has been a problem (Chap should have one more tackle credited to his name ) but that's also been bad across the board. Maybe this is the referees way of rebelling against the NFL Regardless, the Colts should be able to start faster and fight through some of this adversity, but I just think this team has run out of gas after exceeding expectations last season and then getting off to a surprising start this season.


    The rules of my thread are that I'm the only one whose allowed to be sarcastic and negative. Everybody else has to give reasons why Colts fans should be encouraged they won't be an 8-8 division winner and get blown out at home in the wild card round.

    Manning won one more division title for the Colts...

    Just really hard to get excited about much with this team right now, playoff bound or not.

    Yeah, I never thought I'd feel this unexcited about the Colts winning the division. It's just a downright terrible division.

    Nevertheless, winning the division and allowing yourself the opportunity to host a playoff game is the first goal for any team going into the season. We have a seat at the table, and Luck is going to be playing his first home playoff game. As poor as this team is right now, I really wouldn't be all that surprised if the home crowd catapulted the Colts to a crazy win in Wild Card weekend. Remember in 2010 when the 7-9 Seahawks hosted the defending champion Saints in Wildcard weekend and won? Or when the 8-8 Chargers hosted the 12-4 Colts and won? Crazy stuff can happen in wildcard weekend. It's the beauty of the one and done format. I'm not saying that I'd bet all of my money on the Colts, but I think we'll have a decent chance. Of course, we'd then get massacred on the road in the Divisional Round, but it would be hard to complain at that point.

    As long as you have Andrew Luck you have a chance. The dude is too good
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Yeah I'm sure I'll talk myself into it. Apparently it looks like we will be squaring off against Kansas City--another team I don't think is all that good.

    Crazy things happen in the playoffs. It's good to just be there, but I am so down on this team.

    I'm excited because it will be one more opportunity for the youngsters to get some playoff experience. Mr. Rogers needs all the reps we can give him.
