Indianapolis Colts 2011 Season: Sweeping The Division

[Editor's Note: This post is promoted from the FanPost area and edited slightly so it looks a bit more pleasing on the site's front page. Enjoy. -bbs]

This is an article simply explaining why Indianapolis will sweep the division.

That is all.

It is an article of optimism, regarding the Colt's having an all-pro season.

Enjoy it.

Well, we have Jacksonville, Houston, and Tennessee two times a piece. Individually this is what those teams will do, and why we will sweep them.

[Editor's note: Dear Jaguars and Titans front offices, thank you for drafting Blaine Gabbert and Jake Locker in the first round. This helped push Anthony Castonzo down to the Colts. -bbs]

Jacksonville Jaguars

Here's the deal with the Jags. It's clear to me that they are trying to head into a new direction. I believe overall that they are becoming a much better team than they used to be. They have some good pieces on offense. They have a solid tight end, an all-pro running back, not a bad receiver, but what's holding them back? I think it's their quarterback. So, what did Jacksonville do? They got one in the draft, and one that I believe will start. Blaine Gabbert is a guy who many believe is the best in this year's draft. Let's face it, David Garrard isn't the answer, so Jacksonville finally decided to do something about it.  I think Gabbert will start next year and he's an inexperienced rookie. I think this will be the case where Indianapolis stacks eight in the box to shut down MJD and forces Gabbert to beat us with his arm. I don't think he can. Not this year at least. Was it a smart investment for the Jags? Probably. Will they beat us next year with him starting? I don't think so.

Tennessee Titans

The Titans really have the same thing the Jags have going on, except many believe they reached for their quarterback. So the Titans are going to start a rookie at quarterback, because they really have no choice. Not to mention, their head coach is new and is probably going to try and implement some new things those guys in Tennessee aren't used to. They still are a very physical defense, and they still have Chris Johnson, but Indianapolis will beat them twice. Again, we will stack eight in the box, and force Locker to beat us with his arm. I don't believe he can do it. New coach and new quarterback in the same year doesn't exactly translate into success. Not in the first year anyway. I think this team could possibly be drafting number one overall in 2012. 

Houston Texans

If it's any team in the division I think can possibly give us problems, it would be this team. Not saying they will give us problems, just saying out of the other two teams, they  have the best shot to beat us. The Texans can put points on the board, we all know this. They have an all-pro running back, wide receiver, and a better than average quarterback. They can score in the blink of an eye, but here's where I think their downfall is. The Texans had what I think was one of the worst defenses in the league. With an already terrible defense, they decided that during a lockout, where nobody knows what's going on, they were going to change to a 3-4 defense. This isn't something you can do overnight, and certainly not something you can do without practicing. I believe eventually their defense could give us problems, but right now at this point in time, I think it will be worse than the year before. Also, I think the only reason the Texans could compete with us is because they could put pressure on Peyton. I think Indianapolis got their offensive line sured up. Peyton will have protection, and he will carve up that Texans secondary, like he does every year.


Our pass rushers have to just be foaming at the mouth right now. When the best defensive end duo in the league goes up against rookie quarterback's, bad things start to happen. They get to play Blaine Gabbert twice, and Jake Locker twice. I can just see Freeney and Mathis tearing things up in those four games. Anyway, we fixed our main problem in offensive line. Every team in our division is either going through some sort of change in scheme, or they're going to start rookies. I'm not complaining about any of that. The way I see things, Indianapolis will go 6-0 in the division, and it won't even be close. We will secure a first-round bye, beat the _____at home, and then beat the _____ to go to the superbowl. We then play the superbowl against _____ in our own stadium, and it doesn't matter who we play, because they will be destroyed. THEY WILL BE DESTROYED, and Indianapolis will hold the super bowl champion title once again.

Making You Smile

Indianapolis plays Carolina, at home, after our bye week. They are starting a rookie quarterback. Think about it. Final score - Indianapolis 42 Carolina 3?

That's why we will sweep our division.

Smile for the Carolina game.

Rec'd if you agree with me, and think we will sweep our division.
