Lucks retirement and Miller injury news effects Bills

Recommended Posts

The loss of Andrew Luck and the injury of Lamar Miller effects the AFC playoff race before the start of the Season. The AFC South just got weaker and more competitive giving the Bills an easier route to grab a playoff spot. I doubt you will see a wildcard team from the AFC South and the division winner be around 9-7 or 10-6.

I don't know, I could see both the Texans and the Jags making the playoffs.  Especially now that they both play a weakened Colts team twice.

Ha - actually as it stands right now, I have the Titans being the only team from the AFCS to make the playoffs.

Imho I think the colts have a lot of talent.  Very strong d, Jacoby can handle a full season and stay competitive.  With luck the were s.b. candidates without the are still a very tough out every week.  Reich can lead them to a winning record.  Sucks for their fans though.

Lol "easier route" 

 

The Bills always create a hard route no matter how many teams suck in the AFC.

With the Texans' oline, Watson may be the next one to retire

You just watched 20 years of decent defense and some talent but no QB and you still post this straight faced?

Colts wont win more than 6 or 7 with Brissett  Lets be real, Luck is a top tier qb that at times carried the Colts on his back both passing and running  Shame his body gave out  I give him props for making that decision and it sucks for all nfl fans  He was a lot of fun to watch

Yes.  Not sure what is so outlandish.  Competitive, tough out.  Why not?  I think that describes some bills teams over the past 20 years.  Just saying it's not the end of the world, the have talent, young talent, and a g.m. that seems to know what he is doing.

I'll still take the Colts over the Titans. Reich seems to be a very solid coach and Brisset may not be a long term starter, but I think he can win them 9 games. They didn't win last season on the strength of Luck's QBing alone.

We often, maybe always, had a better qb situation. In a qb driven league. 

 

How many winning seasons were there? 

 

They may show up to play but if it’s a winning record it’s the wheels coming off everyone in the division plus some extra breaks

Point taken on past bills teams and records.  Guess the point I am trying to make is the colts are still a strong franchise with upside moving forward.

Which likely means they won't find a QB and they'll be like a lot of the Bills teams, that were not bad enough.

Could be.  I am of the opinion that their organization from g.m. down is more capable of handling that task than any of the bills front office since polian, until now (fingers crossed) Again, just an opinion.

Very few teams in history have survived losing their franchise qb during a season. Doubtful they will either. A lot of their “fans” booed him tonight. I don’t feel sorry for those that booed at all.

Jacoby Brisette sucks and we are all about to see it. 

 

 Had Kelly will be QBing that team by week 6.

I think Frank starts Chad out of the chute.   He may have lightening in a bottle.  Has looked good in PS.  Jacoby is taking you nowhere.

Going to be interesting I think i see Chad Kelly possibly getting a start at some point, i say Kelly starts week 7 any other projections?  Just seen BB beat me to it he said week 6.

Okay, I get it.  They may not be good at all this year.  Moving forward it seems from a non colts fan, and nfl novice observer (me) that the colts organization is structured better then a lot of other teams.  Do the texans even have a g.m.?  Moving forward they are equipped to bounce back.  Will they?  Time will tell and I will enjoy seeing what happens. I still think they can give afc south teams problems this year which seems to be the o.p. topic afc south this year.  Do I think they win the division? No.
