2019 NFL Week 15: Colts vs Saints Second Half Open Thread — Colts trail 20-0

New, comments
NFL: Indianapolis Colts at New Orleans Saints Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Hey Colts fans this week’s game is truly a good news- bad news situation. The good news is that Drew Brees is going to break Peyton Manning’s all time TD record. Why is that good news? Because Tom Brady didn’t get to break it first. Also Patrick Mahomes is going to blow it out of the water so it’s really only a matter of time before it falls over and over again.

The bad news is this; unless 2007 Peyton Manning returns at halftime the Colts will officially be out of playoff contention in 30 minutes of game play. There’s still plenty to be learned, not only from this second half but from the remaining two games of the season. For those of you who are so inclined, if you spent the second half researching draft prospects, no one would blame you.

Also if you go to bed, I get it. I will silently judge you, but I get it.

Want some analysis?

  • Jacoby Brissett has been bad
  • The defense is unable to stop an all time great quarterback throwing to possibly the best receiver in the league, Michael Thomas (which shouldn’t be that surprising)
  • The Saints probably won’t be called for holding no matter what, make peace with it now. The league can’t have Brees’ career end with a massive shot from Darrius Leonard, so they’re probably just going to let those go.
  • It would be good to see the Colts generate a pass rush in the second half, regardless of missed holding calls or not.
  • “You know we gonna lose tonight!” - This is a quote from a good friend of mine from high school. He used to say it repeatedly on Fridays at school. He didn’t play football and as mad as it made me when he said it, he was usually right. So Ryan Gassaway, if you’re reading this, I hope you’re still making predictions in the only way you know how.

Enjoy the second half if you can.
