I don't understand this love affair with the Colts
Odds to win Superbowl next year.
If I were a betting man, I'd have some Dolphins at 40-1. Otherwise, I don't see much value there.
I don't understand their love affair with us, of course I'm rooting for the pats, but we got worse in the offseason but we're tied in second for best odds with Seattle.
We'll have Light, Rodney, Koppen, and Bruschi back among others and we got worse?
there's absolutely no way we got worse, the only degrade i see right away is FG kicking mostly cause i have never seen our rookie K.
Why are the World Champion Steelers so disrespected?
Okay, I'll bite...
My quick take is that the Colts MAYBE replaced the loss of James (Addai) for a break even... otherwise, how is this team significantly better?
My quick, trying not to be to biased, take on the Pats is that they have LIKELY improved on offense (Maroney, Jackson, Caldwell, Thomas, Mills, healthy OL) and MAYBE break even on special teams (Lose AV but gain some quality Gunners/returners) and just by getting healthier and having more options for depth, are at least Break even on defense but LIKELY slightly improved on defense. How do you see us getting worse?
The Colts will always be the trendy pick, no big deal. Indy wins the Lombardi every year in August who you read the preseason stuff.
The Colts had to dismantle their defense and jettison EDGE so that they could afford to sign their #2 WR - Reggie Wayne. Smart move? Not imo. That Indy defense was bad for so long, and then they let key personnel leave because they mishandled their cap to sign a WR.
That team is still going to score points but it is yet to be seen if Addai can replace Edge. And it is yet to be seen how BAD this Colts D will be.
Vegas is just going with the trendy pick so they can earn lots of money from the fools that listen to the media. Colts have 'name recognition' going for them but not much else this year imo.
