Ravens stumbled, bumbled and fumbled their way into the playoffs last year, then turned it on and ran the table.
Not out of the question for Indy to do the same. Lotsa interesting late season roster additions that could conceivably kickstart the Colts for a run.
Seahawks with a healthy Harvin, playing at home throughout the playoffs......Gonna be hard to beat!!!
Just a random thought . . .maybe less discussion of the rest of the NFL teams, and spend majority of time on the Colts. After all, that is the reason for being here in the first place.
RE: Luck and running. I would love to see Luck Newton it up a little. All the people trying to run a power game have some sort of zone read. that seems to help the run game a lot.
I donno. I think the panthers would have a shot. They're only weakness is the secondary and as you say the 'hawks don't have great recivers.
Which rookie offers the better story line this week ?
Da'Rick Rogers with increased reps and hopefully easing the pain of losing Reggie. . . . or, Daniel Adongo, a rugby player, getting a first taste of live NFL action ?
Shootout at the Cincy corral. The silver lining from all our injuries may just be the unexpected preview into Colts future with all the new faces - McNary , Adongo ; Rogers; Nixon etc.
@WyattL I find it a bit hard to believe Indy will have a second gear without Reggie around, but I sure as heck wouldn't be sad if I were proven wrong.
Also: Yes, agreed on that characterization of the Ravens' season. People were praising them all to high heaven when all it proved was that the NFL playoffs are a crapshoot with high variance. You wouldn't change it for the world, but at the same time you can't say that the Super Bowl run shows who's truly the best team in the league.
@WyattL T-Rich...been battling an ankle, Da'Rick....showed promise against Titans, McNary looks to be an up and coming stud(fingers crossed), and lets hope "Adongo the Annihilator" blows up opposing O-Lines! again, fingers crossed!!!
@BlueRidgeColtFan I dunno. Kinda like Philly and how they're playing right now.
@BlueRidgeColtFan No doubt, Blue. Harvin's late season addition is like a bonus 1st round pick plugged into their offense. They were tough as hell as it was. Add in Harvin and it's almost not even fair.
@BlueRidgeColtFan They're the closest thing to a lock the league has right now.
@WyattL ITWB focuses on the league as a whole. Our other shows throughout the week focus on just the Colts. We'll have one tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET that's just Colts.
@hankster It does, it makes LBs hesitate, because you have to be worried about the QB taking it outside. If you're going to do power-run, QBs are a huge weapon.
@WyattL I donno. I'm a bit worried it will be the slaughter in Porkopolis.
I want Luck to be playing for the next 12 to 15 years at least. Nevermind whether they run or just get sacked, but QBs who get hit more often for whatever reason - like Byron Leftwich, Ben Roethlisberger, Michael Vick - end up looking like walking shambles, and you start to doubt their longevity in the league.
About the only reason I'd allow Luck to run is because he was going to get hit anyway, but when you have QB carries, he gets hit **by design**. And to me, that's insane; at least he can throw the ball away when he's in the pocket.
I know Luck's got good wheels, but I don't want 2 some years of spectacular QB rushes, then a final contract year or two of a guy so broken he's a shadow of his former self. That's why I'd be scared to make him run by design.
