The Colts started out 1-5 and the Texans 0-3. This is why you concentrate on game to game and not the stat histories of who makes the playoffs after an X start and who doesn’t. I don’t take that seriously. In that moment, in that year, is how I always approach it
Go Colts.

Hoping for a good game.
Not a skip on the disc this weekend...  
trueblueinpw : 1/5/2019 10:12 am : link
Should be four good games this weekend. I’ve heard that Indy may have the best O-line in the NFL this season; they’ll be tested today for sure. Two good teams that know each other well. Could be the game of the weekend. Can’t wait!

The team with the better offensive line, the Colts, will win the game and inspire DG to do the right thing in the upcoming draft.

It's also why I insist that games in week 2 and week 3 are never "must-wins."

“Must win” is a figure of speech  
UConn4523 : 1/5/2019 4:39 pm : link
and it’s been beaten to death in the sports world. That said if you are starting 0-3 I’d say “must win” is pretty damn accurate for game #4. Statistics and the history of the game prove it. There’s always an outlier but it’s extremely rare.

If the AFC wasn't on notice about this Colts team before, they might be opening their eyes now.

This team can score points and they have a defense, too.

Luck is fantastic. They've been in playoff mode for weeks and they look infinitely more prepared for this right now than the Texans do.

HOU should be able to make this a game, it's still super early. But I really love what the Colts did with their team this past offseason. Really tremendous job by their front office.

capitalize on this early start. Jump up 21-0, never look back or even come close to letting the Texans back in the game.

If this were the Giants, Pat "I don't know what I am doing" Shermer would somehow give up the lead and the other team would win by 10 and the Giants would be struggling to score again.
The Colts should buy Josh McDaniels a nice gift for bailing

Our line would look great also if Reese picked Tunsil instead of Apple, Travis Frederick or Kyle Long instead of Pugh, and Trai Turner instead of Richburg.

They've done a great job getting the right guys.

It's pretty amazing to see they went from giving up the most sacks last year to the least this year. I've seen teams or units make big improvements from one year to the next but I'd be hard pressed to recall one going from 32nd in the league to 1st.

It was a terrible play call. You can't go empty backfield there and allow them to drop 8 into coverage with the end line as another defender. I don't mind the pass so much but at least have a threat of the run there on 4th and 1.

nyjuggernaut2 : 1/5/2019 6:30 pm : link
and he asked if I could go back to the 2018 draft, would you approve a trade that swapped 1s with the Browns plus get a 2 from them and a 3rd in 2020. He said he would if the Giants ended up with Nelson in round 1, and Nick Chubb and Hernandez in round 2 (assuming Browns used the 2nd overall pick on Saquon).

Although it would give us a fantastic interior on the OL of Hernandez and Nelson, I still like Saquon too much to say yes to that. Thoughts?

Crazy stat they showed this week leading into the game that Luck had thrown the 2nd most passes in the NFL and was sacked the fewest. 635 to 18.

Hits and hurries stats I don't have. But that ratio is ridiculous.

take when Booger said that JJ Watt isn't paid to bat down passes, but to get sacks and that he has to do better when the stat came on the screen that Watt has the most batted passes in the last three years - by a wide margin.

I already had said this would be the throwaway game of teh weekend - but I should have realized it would be because that crew is abominable

The Giants didn't "neglect" the offensive line - they blew assets on bad players. The investments were there both in cap dollars and draft picks. Reese and Gettleman just managed to strike out swinging on most of them. Hernandez looks like the first one that is actually going to pan out in quite some time.

Omameh was an awful signing.. I'm not that mad about Solder, it was sort of necessary. But we wound up in that conundrum to begin with because we whiffed on Flowers.

The coaching on the Houston side leading into the game with the gameplan and the in game decisions did not give their players the best chance to win.

Well, they also spent a 1 on Pugh... a 2 on Richburg. Neither guy got a 2nd contract here.

Even the late round flyers like Hart didn't work out. Wheeler sucks.

So many swings and so many misses. Sheer odds alone make it almost seem hard to believe that Reese could have missed on so many offensive linemen. But.. he did. And that's how we got here
