  1. Who will be the next HC of the Indianapolis Colts?

    You know I’m only joking right? We all know momentum isn’t something quantifiable but we’ve seen long breaks or pauses in game action have an effect.

    Lol. Quit giving me a hard time Bott or I’m gonna turn into your Valonquar.

    Baltimore had just taken a 28-6 lead when the lights went out. After a 30 Plus minute delay the game resumed. The 49ers were going nowhere fast. They caught fire after the delay. A 30 minute forced timeout/stoppage can easily change momentum in a sporting contest. It happens a lot. We see it in many sports with rain delays & such.

    If Irsay is really chasing Gruden, he needs to be put out to pasture ASAP. Gruden is a failure just waiting to happen. Screw the splash hire (which is all Gruden would be in my opinion) & get somebody in here who isn’t over a decade removed from being a successful coach. Not sure on Toub. Gotta know who the coordinators would be. I want McDaniels. It’ll respark the Colts/Patriots rivalry which would immediately boost our relevancy again. Plus I like the quick hitting offense & the way they exploit mismatches in his offense. And for the guys posting about the Jim/John Harbaugh Super Bowl... John definitely dominated. If not for the “power outage” that changed momentum, the Ravens were on their way to an epic blowout of the 49ers.

    So who are the young stud OC & DC he brings with him?
  6. Who will be the next HC of the Indianapolis Colts?

    Actually, the Pats have never won a Super Bowl without McDaniels involved in the organization in some capacity. And I think he does a whole lot. He still calls & designs the plays for Brady. I think he’s a guy Luck would immediately trust and could bring some Brady tips for Luck to use...
  7. Injuries

    Gordon Hayward just destroyed his ankle. He’s probably done for the year. 5 minutes into his Celtics career. Should have come back home. And brought Coach Stevens with him.
  8. Mack 2 carries

    We all saw the way Pep got production & usage out of our backs. Especially Bradshaw & even Trent. If he could get Trent touches & production, I assure you that Mack would have gotten more than 2 carries under Pep and he would have been used effectively out of the backfield too. Plus, I think he would have gotten another tight end some touches with Doyle struggling... Chud is just an extension of Chuck’s incompetence. Same for Monachino. If Irsay doesn’t allow Ballard to clean house, then it’s time for him to sell the team to Peyton &/or others because the incompetence would have spread too far if they are retained again. The guy is just not HC material. We drafted a damn Rolls Royce in Luck & gave the keys to an incompetent fool who clearly has no business behind the wheel. I wouldn’t be surprised if Luck’s family didn’t pull a power move & say we’re not allowing Andrew to come back until he’s surrounded by competent coaches... Has to be hard for a guy with NFL experience to see his son’s career being wasted because of incompetence... If things keep trending like they have been, I see no reason to bring Luck back this year. Just hire a new HC soon in the offseason & get Luck the playbook early so he can start learning the new system.
  9. Mack 2 carries

    What’s sad Will is he didn’t even get 2 yards. He was so unwilling to run, he slid down behind the line of scrimmage... & We continued to let him sit back there like a statue & shred our zone defense... Like Venturi said 2 weeks ago: Our coaching staff is incompetent.
  10. About those late game timeouts..........

    What coach in their right mind wastes 15 seconds at the end of a game where you’re trailing by 7 & need to get the ball back??? How, after your defense holds them to a decent stop on 1st down, are you not running on the field YELLING for a timeout? What was going through Chuck’s mind? 15 seconds is an eternity... That could be 3 shots to the end zone at the end of a game... He must’ve still been shell shocked from the bad challenge... I really think the pressure is getting to Chuck & causing him to overthink situations and make even more questionable decisions than usual.

    Chud is no better than Pep was... He did more with a younger less experienced Luck & less offensive talent than Chud has done. And Manusky did much better than Monachino has ever shown.
  12. Colts @ Titans Monday Night Football Game Thread

    I disagree with you guys. We could easily be 4-2 with Brissett as our QB. We just need better coaching and execution for a full 60 minutes. In all honesty, I think we would have been better off keeping Pep & Manusky. We most certainly couldn’t be much worse.
  13. Colts @ Titans Monday Night Football Game Thread

    Just watched it again. Brissett definitely pulled one of his Tom Brady “sell the run with your back to the defense for a full second” maneuvers... Not good for naked bootlegs on 4th & 1...

    Maybe Doyle did what Chud’s play design asked him to do??? & thus a bad playcall & design. Jacoby isn’t as natural a runner as Luck, who would have executed that play better.

    Fitting. & who did Henry outrun??? Bostic & Morrison...
