Well ok then.


Was the time as big of an issue as Aikman was making it out to be? They were going for a game tying TD. If they got it with 40 seconds left, the Steelers only needed 40 yards or so to get into FG kicking territory, it happens all the time. They didn't run out of time to score, 30 seconds with 2 timeouts was plenty, but they couldn't get a first down

The Colts offensive line is horrible. Micah and Lawrence should have great days.

The Colts defense doesn't do well against the run if the Pittsburgh game is an indicator. This might be a boring game because the Cowboys get a quick lead them run the ball all day.

Watching that game last night; the Cowboys SHOULD win handily against the Colts. It all depends on how they start the game. I was not impressed by either team last night. Old QB vs Rookie QB, but any given Sunday.

Having said that, does not mean Dallas won't come out flat, go three and out and let the Colts drive down the field and score. Stop with the poorly executed razzmatazz and punch them in the mouth.

Don't sleep on Taylor. We always struggle against top RBs. I woulda loved to seen us play Cleveland. I think Chubb and Cooper would presented some huge problems.

I mean, let’s not sleep on ANY team we’re about to play

I am out like a light. Out like I just insulted Mike Tyson's mother. Snoring away and dreaming of a double digit victory and sacking that statue Ryan 8 times.

Watching the Colts last night against the Steelers has me thinking, how the heck did they almost beat the Eagles? Ryan doesn't even throw the ball 20 yards anymore. Shaky is a word I'd use to describe him. Matty Ice is melting fast. Time to pack it in after this season.

When is the last time one or more of our star players really seized the opportunity and took advantage of a starter being out or go up against a clearly weaker unit??

dead serious, can anyone point to a specific game or matchup? I honestly can’t remember

it seems to me (and I could be wrong) but EVERY time we or the media or analysts say “Oh man x player is going to have a career day against y player / unit, they are terrible.” it never happens

We did ok against Saquon. But in general though you are right.

Indy has the same number of wins as Green Bay and has a win over KC so we better not sleep on them. The games that concern me the most that we have coming up are against Indy, Houston and Jacksonville. They’re pretty much all trap games. Losing to any one of those teams could derail our season.

Dear sweet little 8lb. 6oz. Baby Jesus, please allow the Colts to
keep Jeff Saturday as HC and Matt Ryan as starting QB for one
more week. Amen.

The Colts offense was nearly comatose against the Steelers, who are not amongst the better defenses in the NFL. The futility was mind-blowing and Matt Ryan is just NOT getting it done. How in the hell did this team have the Eagles down 13 - 3? That said, I'm happy to have them at AT&T. If the Cowboys take care of business without turnovers they should prevail.

How’d we lose to Green Bay? Tampa? Dallas CLEARLY has more talent than Indy, but we need to keep that edge. This IS professional football!
