Still a long way to get into the playoffs


Don't want to be a downer on a great day, but I am reading all sorts of stuff about the Colts having a great shot at the playoffs. Please keep some things in mind - the Colts play five of the next seven games on the road. They have to play the Texans (arguably the best team in the AFC) twice and New England once in New England. Each game they have been bleeding players, and re-configuring - today's injury list includes Powers, Justice, Mathis and others.

I don't want to say they won't get to the playoffs - they do have a solid shot. I just want to manage expectations a bit . Judging from the open threads some of us are getting highly emotional, and while it is great to love on our team (particularly with a coach fighting for his life), keep some balance. There are still some very difficult days ahead.
