    I am sure the Colts will stay undefeated for another week. Cincy is tough, but Pittsburgh handled them easily. The '72 Dolphins players will be rejoicing next Monday night after Pittsburgh puts the first of a couple blemishes on the mighty Colt's records. Indy won't survive in Seattle.

    As far as the Steelers.....a visit to Baltimore will result in a win, no matter who is playing QB. Should be cool to see Randle El throw another TD or two against that mighty Ravens secondary. :)

    Yeah, Baltimore is baaaadddd. Well, as long as he hands it off 50 times. When it is time to pass, they can run the end arounds with Randle El. :D

    I think the '72 Miami team will have to wait a little longer than two weeks! :D Hmm, lets see, both of the teams that have beaten the Squeelers have been beaten by the Colts this season. Hmm... ;) I have actually had the chance to watch Pittsburgh play several times this year and I can tell you, I'm not worried. If the Colts can just keep from getting burned by the offense's trick plays, the Colts will be fine.

    Seattle? It should be a good match up. I know everyone is raving about Shaun Alexander but everyone seems to forget that Edge is #2 in rushing and #1 in total yards from scrimmage. Alexander is good but he isn't any better than Edge.

    I try to avoid the whole "my team beat a team your team lost to". Neither team has really beat anyone yet this year. Pitt's biggest win is against Cincy, Indy's biggest win is against Jacksonville. It could have been NE, but they are no longer the same team that whipped Peyton seven times in a row.

    The Monday night game will be an awesome game, maybe the best one so far this year. Indy has yet to play a defense as good as the Steelers, and the Steelers have yet to face an offense of the same caliber as Indy. I look to defense over offense in any game. Indy's defense is awesome, and so is Pitt's. It's going to be a killer game, I can't wait. Pitt's defense will shut down Edge to be sure. The secondary may be a bit weak, but Polamalu will make Peyton's day difficult.

    There is much more to Seattle than Alexander, I hope you realize that. I am sure Dungy does. Right now, Seattle is the #1 offense in the NFL, with Indy right behind them. This game will come down to defense as well, and Seattle will be ready. The trip out to the west coast will play a factor as well.

    Indy is going to have an awesome year, they will probably finish 14-2. :D

    Ok, this week I'm worried for the Bengals...
     
  12. Yeah, like Mike said, this isn't good logic to use when predicting the outcome of football games. The Steelers beat the Chargers, who absolutely crushed the Patriots, a team that beat the Steelers - and the world hasn't exactly caved in on itself.

    If I were a betting man, I'd say that either Seattle or Pittsburgh will beat Indy - possibly both. I still think Indy's defense can be run on, and both these teams will be able to give the running game a far better shot than any team Indy has faced yet.

    Indy should beat Cincy, though.

    I agree with you and Mike. It really isn't an indicator of their talent. Its just an observation.

    What are the big things to winning a game? Turnovers, time of possession, feild position, and third down efficiency. These are all things the Colts have used consistently all year to defeat their opponents. The Steelers and Seahawks have not been nearly as consistent.

    I believe the Colts can win against both teams if they keep playing this way. Well that with no turnovers, Mathis and Freeney terrorizing the QB, and Edge rushing for 100+ yards. :D

    Ofcourse, all this means nothing. The only thing that matters is if they have a W after the game.
     
  16. No argument with that, whatsoever. The Colts, at this point, have to be considered the class of the league. My only reservation is their schedule - they've hardly been tested. With the Steelers and the Seahawks, we're talking about teams who can absolutely decimate teams with the run (as Indy is also capable of doing offensively), so I'll be curious to see how Indy's D handles the challenge.

    I'm not saying that they can't win both games - I'm just saying I doubt they will. It's too tough to go undefeated in the NFL, and if they Colts are going to drop some games, these are the teams I see as most able to beat them.

    All three teams are within 90 seconds in TOP, so that seems like a wash. Indy has both teams beat pretty good in 3rd down conversions, and Pitt has the others beat in TO differential and total takeaways. They are all equal in giveaways, well Seattle has one more. I looked, but could not locate any stats on average field position to start a drive.

    I'm not trying to take anything away from Indy. There are the top team in the NFL right now, and will be until they are beaten. I've seen this coming sine the day Dungy took over. You can look at Tampa and see what Gruden did with what Dungy left behind. Now that it has been a few years, it is becoming evident that Gruden went to the Super Bowl with Dungy's team. The Buc's quickly started falling apart after Dungy left.

    Sure, my opinion is slightly biased since I am a lifelong Steelers fan. But I also think that the Steelers have a legitimate shot against the Colts, and will be able to pull it out in the end. Defense wins games, and Pitt's is just enough better to get the win. It won't hurt to have a smashmouth running game too. :)

    I will agree that the Steelers and Seattle are probably the teams that are most likely to put the hurt to my Colts.

    Being biased myself, I must believe that my Colts can whoop them both. :D One thing I can say for sure, these two games for me will be exciting and nerve racking at the same time!

    Yep, me too for the Steelers game.

    A little bit for the Seahawks since I live up here right by them. The Seahawks will never by my team, but I do like to watch them play.

    I tried to get into the Cardinals when I moved here but I just couldn't do it. It brought back bad memories of the days when my Colts were one of those 3-13 type teams. :(
