The Colts beat the red hot Dallas Cowboys 23-0 without Andrew Luck throwing a touchdown! What the hell is happening?! Frank Reich’s creation has come to life! That’s what’s happening!
When the Colts first started to bounce back from their 1-5 start, we saw the defense playing well enough to keep the game close so Luck and the offense had plenty of opportunity to score. Now the defense has progressed to the point that they’re playing well enough to win games on their own! They just shut out the Cowboys! This is NOT traditional Colts football. Colts fans are used to a system where our offense has to score on nearly every possession to pull out a win. Do we finally have a coach that subscribes to the theory that defense wins championships? It appears so!
Another big reason the Colts started turning this season around was that the offensive live was finally protecting Andrew Luck. For the first time in his career Luck had time to let plays fully develop and wasn’t picking himself up off the carpet after every play. Now, the offensive line is not only protecting their QB, they’re actually opening up running lanes. Turns out, Marlon Mack is a very talented running back! He just needed a little daylight, that’s all. It’s much easier to run through a door when its open.
Speaking of open doors, big shout out to Ryan Kelly and Mo Alie-Cox for a dominant performance on the line last night! We knew Ryan Kelly was a beast. We just needed him to be healthy enough to play. But what a find in Mo Allie-Cox! Mo Alie-Cox is not just another athletic tight end with good hands. He’s a physical specimen! He’s 6’6″ – 260! And unlike most former hoop stars turned tight end, this dude can block!
Every NFL team in the playoff hunt should be praying to their God or their science or their cult leader, whoever they think controls their destiny…that the Indianapolis Colts don’t make the playoffs this year because they might be the most well-rounded and dangerous team in the league right now. They are Frank Reich’s monster!
Last week the Colts got shut out against the Jaguars, the worst team in their division and then came back this week and beat the Texans who were arguably the best team in the division. It feels like a real Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde situation.
It’s a real roller coaster ride but, unfortunately, I think it’s just part of the process. The team is starting to gel and come into its own but we’re young and this system is new so there are bound to being growing pains. The Colts have never been known for their defense but it appears that has finally changed.
The defense is doing their job. They’re keeping us in games which is crucial as Luck and the offense work to become more consistent. They’ve definitely shown they can be explosive and move the chains but they’ve also shown that they can shit the bed for long stretches which is frustrating.
The good news is it’s only frustrating because we know what our potential is. We are a good football team and we have the potential to be a great football team. We wouldn’t have been frustrated if we were shut out by the Jaguars last year. We would’ve calmly taken a sip of our beers and let out a collective sigh, followed by a “Yeah, we suck.” It sounds weird to say, but it actually feels good to have the right to be pissed off when we have a bad game.
I couldn’t be more happy that the Colts are in the Wild Card conversation and I couldn’t be more excited to see how we compete for it. I’m all in on GM Chris Ballard and Head Coach Frank Reich. What they’ve been able to accomplish with this team in such a short period of time is incredible. I’m not second-guessing shit this off-season. If they make a move to get Le’Veon Bell…awesome. If they don’t make a move to get Le’Veon Bell…still awesome. These guys came here with a vision and it’s working so I’m keeping my stupid mouth shut. It’s a good time to be a Colts fan.
Each week on Sunday’s I am glued to the NFL and the internet so I might as well put it to good use and bring to you the best videos of the weekend from the NFL. These are not just highlights and good plays because you can get those from anywhere. These will be different. These are the videos that the big corporate shows are not going to show you. I mean some of the videos might be but you get the point. I’m also going to miss some videos because I’m human, the internet is a big place, and I’m lazy so understand that as well. Lets get this started.
LOLOLOL you do not have to be a Browns fan or a Dragon Ball Z fan to appreciate the genius of this video. I got a nice healthy laugh out of this. It couldn’t be more spot on.
Love you Baker. Never Change. Nothing greater than waking up and feeling dangerous. Especially since you’re on the Browns and it won’t happen oftern.
Aaron Donald is an animal. There is not an ounce of fat on that man. He might be the last human in the league that I would want to see putting his helmet on and rushing the field to fight me. He just dapped up a few guys, strapped up his helmet, and calmly went to pick a fight with another ginormous human.
Quenton Nelson is real life Juggernaut. Barry Church had no idea what he was getting into on this play. He honestly might retire after this season strictly because of this.
Something about Matt Ryan being mad is SO funny. Like look in the mirror guy. No one is going to pay attention to or take you being mad seriously. The voice in the video is exactly what you’d think Matt Ryan’s voice sounds like when he’s mad.
Welcome back Khalil Mack. Thank god you got out of Oakland.
Why does Floyd Mayweather need TWO NFL game balls? The fucking rich get richer. Guy has a horse shoe shoved up his ass. I probably would’ve given it to the 5th grader who doesn’t have a bazillion dollars and who knows how to read like 10 seats down but that’s just me.
Tyreek Hill scores a TD and films his teammates celebrating said TD. Absolute Genius. You should not be flagged if the celebration is that well thought out.
Can only imagine how well she took the loss. Some Golden Corral waitress did not deserve the tongue lashing she received later that night.
Poor Tom. I’m starting to think that Belichick only runs this play for future evidence of why he cut Tom.
This fucking guy. No words for this fucking guy. Or maybe I have a lot of words for him here: https://www.patmcafeeshow.com/nfl/former-steelers-rb-26-failing-rap-artist-is-done-in-pittsburgh/1217
Oh and this video has nothing to do with the NFL but it’s phenomenal.
I’ll do better next week.
Andrew Luck is back! He’s passed for 10 touchdowns, thrown only one interception, completed an average of 72.4% of his passes and has an average QB rating of 126.9 over the last 3 games. Granted, those wins were against the Bills, Raiders and Jaguars but that means we don’t suck as bad as they do and for Colts fans, that’s a big deal.
The Colts only won 4 games last year with Andrew Luck sidelined after his shoulder surgery. Colts fans didn’t know if he’d be able to return this year. Hell, we didn’t know if he’d ever return. We heard horror stories about his rehab and recovery so even if he did return, we questioned whether or not he’d ever be the Luck of old. But all that doubt is finally gone.
His shoulder is healed, his arm is strong and the offensive line seems set on keeping it that way. This is their 4th game in a row without allowing a sack. A healthy Andrew Luck, that has time to throw the ball, is a very dangerous animal and the Colts finally have a GM and coach that seem to understand that.
The tight end trio of Eric Ebron, Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox is benefiting from this quite nicely. Going into today’s game, Colts tight ends ranked second in the NFL in catches (62) and targets (98), fifth in yards (711) and first in touchdown catches (12). The trio is led by Ebron, who seems totally in sync with Luck right now. He added 2 receiving touchdowns and a rushing touchdown today against the Jaguars. Detroit fans can shit on this guy all they want. He has 10 touchdowns! So, shit on that!
The Colts are 4-5 and both the Texans and Titans are playing very well right now, so yes, it’s a bit of a stretch to think we have a legitimate shot at making the playoffs. But who cares? I’m not worried about the playoffs this year. Andrew Luck is healthy! He finally has a line that can protect him! We’ve been waiting a long time for this!
If you’re a Saints fan, a Rams fan or a Chiefs fan then good for you man. I’m happy your team’s so dominant and that you’re already making Super Bowl plans with your stupid friends. I don’t need all that.
Right before this season started I thought the Andrew Luck era was done forever. I thought that I was being robbed of the opportunity to see another prodigy develop, right here in my city, to become one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. But I was wrong. He’s back! The Colts are back! Indianapolis is back! I’m back!
From this point on, I’m treating every single game like it’s the super bowl. I’m inviting friends over, I’m buying a second couch, filling the coolers with beer, and ordering wings and 4 different pizza options. I’m even ordering a pizza with just cheese on it, in case one of my friends brings a girl that eats like a 5-year-old.
If you’re a Colts fan, dawn your gear proudly. The future looks bright.
