    I really feel its time for Jacksonville to jump the hurdle and take over the division from the Colts on sunday.

    You have a phenomenal Jax defensive line against a sudden weak OL of the Colts where Peyton has not had the luxury of time in the pocket like in the past as seen in the past weeks where he has been knocked down more than usual and that was against much weaker lines than the Jaguars have.

    Indy may be heading to the Wild Card round and I think Jax stamps its mark on the south division.

    The time has come for a new guy in town and it starts this weekend.

    Not going to happen, as much as we might like it to just to shut the mediots up.

    Indy will win, but even if Indy loses, they stay on top with the better AFCS record.

    The AFCS is all but over by 4:15 Sunday.

    Not going to happen.

    Even if Jacksonville wins, the Colts will still be ahead of Jax. Both would be 9-3, both would be 1-1 against each other but the div record for Indy would be 3-1, for Jax 3-2, so Indy would still be in first.

    I think the Jags may win...but they must have some help if they are to win the division...basically another loss by Indy. Balt, Hou, Oak, Tenn...really..only the division game will be hard..the Ravens will be coming off a tough one against NE and... Jax has Caro, Pitts, Oak, Hous...That Pitts game is looking like a big one..and that is away.
    They MAY win..but they need to beat up the Colts pretty bad..so that another team can beat them.

    There is as much of a chance of Jax beating us as there is of Moss and Brady making the All-NFL 4th team.

    While I think that Jax has a shot at beating Indy and taking over the south, it won't happen in Indy. Their best chance to beat Indy is in Jax and they failed to do that this year.

    One thing that is going to help Peyton this week is the return of Harrison. He and Peyton are so in tune with on another that they can hide some of their deficiencies on the O line.

    Would love to see Jax win and I think it will be close but Indy takes this game.

    I haven't seen anything about Harrison returning for this game, in fact all the talk I've seen from Colts fans is that they've accepted that he's not gonna be around until the playoffs (yeah, real likely).

    The Colts, as presently constituted, are more than vulnerable, and I've been saying (read: hoping) that the Colts will lose this game, and then another to either Tennessee or Houston (a healthy Houston team could give the Colts a go of it on offense). There's no doubt in my mind that the Jaguars are a better team than the Steelers, and will handle them at the Ketchup Bottle.

    Unfortunatly I have to concur, if it were in JAX I'd feel better about it, but the Dome will be rockin to DJ Polian's piped in crowd noise.

    Every year we hear about Jacksonville and Tennessee and every year they don't win a damn thing. Until Garrard and Young can go on the road and win a big game I'm not buying into any of the JVille or Titan hype.
    Sunday will tell us alot about the maturity of JVille. I'll believe it when I see it.

    I think you hit the prob on the head. QB. Had Jacksonville acquired Matt Schaub instead of Houston. I'd consider them a player in the AFC. Garrard has gotten better. He doesn't turn the ball over. But, just doesn't make the plays needed to be a championship qb.

    Hmmm, I'm glad for you. I am not so sure what Jacksonville team is going to show up in Indy. It's not that I don't think the Jags can do it. I just have a lot of doubts about how they match up and the fact that it's a road game, etc.

    I can see the point for the momentum shift. I just don't know if the Colts are as weak as we like to think. They do have Clark and Gonzales back, and I think they present a lot of problems for the Jags' great defense.

    I'm taking the safe road if I'm betting. Colts. I know the Jags will be pumped but that's nothing new. Give me something more than that. Is David Garrad actually that good? Does anybody here put David Garrad in the "Big Game" category so far? He has to prove it Sunday. Show me.

    Not to be contrary, but I want the Dolts to win every game, win big and win by 50 every game. I want all of their players happy and healthy and ****y and their fans confident the rest of the year.

    I want the runup to the AFC championship game in Foxboro to have every commentator (except Marino, whom I respect) picking Indy to win by 3. Then I want to enjoy the following week in the runup to the Big Game and watch Indy fans burn the RCA and lynch Dungy. And yes, I am wide awake!:D

    EXACTLY, you've taken the words right out of my mouth in reverse. This is exactly why I'm rooting for the Pats perfect regular season and that they route each team by 50, so that if the Colts get another shot, its a historic moment. I hope the Pats have a perfect record at that point, no injury excuses for either team, no ref excuses for either team, no field or temperature excuses. 60 minutes of mano e mano. May the better team win, that would be exciting or heartbreaking.

    No disrespect, but I'm completely about it being an enormous moment if they play again.

    Still alot of football left though before that happens.

    Indy will crush JAX in a coaching mismatch.

    I think you could insert 31 other teams in the place of Indy and call it a coaching mismatch.

    This is the same coach the put an ax in the locker room and injured his Punter, I believe.

    I think that was our very own Chris Hanson who was injured.

    everytime before they play indy they win 2-3 games, the media starts talking how physical they are and build it up to the game of the week blah blah. and then they lose to indy. have seen this script many times and will see it again sunday. everyone analyzes why jax can beat indy but no one analyzes why indy has beaten jax.
    del rio just does enough to keep his job every yr by creating these close matchups. otherwise his teams have been consistently the same teams .beat a couple of good teams and then fail when it matters.

    Nah-no way. Yeah-Indy has some key injuries, but they'll nonetheless have more than enough to exploit Jax's poor pass D.

    I wished you checked the AFC South standings before making this first sentence. As another reply stated, even if the Jags win Sunday, the Colts will still have the edge in the tiebreakers. Only way at this point for the Jags to win the South is by having a better W-L record than Indy (meaning no tiebreaker help), which I think their chances are small.

    With the Steelers being 1 game back in playoff seedings, the Colts need to win this game nonetheless.

    I'm really leaning towards Jacksonville here. I think the Jags are one of 2 or 3 teams that could take out the Pats at some point and it's because of their style. No team has a better 1-2 punch running the ball then the Jags do with Jones-Drew and Taylor and David Garrard has been brilliant this year. You can't turn the ball over and you have to run it against the Pats, something the Jags will do. They're also physical on defense and have Reggie Nelson and Rasheen Mathis to put licks on Moss and take him out of his game ala the Philly game. When they get Marcus Stroud and Mike Peterson back at DT and MLB, they're just as good as anyone in the front 7.

    I can see how 8-3 in the best division in the NFL is mediocre. :rolleyes:

    I don't think so the Jags are the 23rd ranked defense. They give up way too many big plays. I hope I'm wrong but I don't see them winning.
