Finishing Drives

8 posts in this topic

The Colts have the 4th ranked offense in the league in terms of yards, yet are only ranked 22nd in points scored. Obviously, that's not how you want it to look.

If they start finishing drives, they can play with anyone. They're moving the ball as well as anyone in the league.

Agreed. I think some of the problem is that we don't really have a good red zone target yet outside of maybe Wayne. I'd like to see the tightends get more involved down there. Hilton and Avery are more speed guys who can run up and down the field. When the field starts to shorten though they are not as effective. Our numbers down there would be worse if it weren't for Luck rushing for so many TD's. I think this is one area where having a healthy Austin Collie would have changed everything.

Great point, gotta find a way to get some TD`s if going to really contend later in the season.

Better improve fast, because NE is a team that will hang on a lot of points very early. If the Colts want to contend in the next game, they have to score. I don't see Brady throwing any picks or pick-sixes, so offense is going to have to finish the job.

Luck and the young receivers will continue to learn how to win in the NFL and they will develop a few more ways to take shots at the endzone and get easy TDs. It's exciting knowing things are going to get much better in terms of scoring TDs and controlling games like they did last night. Let the education continue against the Patriots. It's all good.

I anticipated that Fleener would be a great red zone weapon, but has not turned out that way. Even before he was injured, he did not seem to get separation and had not had "jump balls" thrown his way.

Inconsistent pass protection reers its ugly head in the RZ.

It is a facet of the game that will come to them, Mr.Luck will improve and so will the people around him or they will be replaced.

    • He almost said it years ago.   It finally slipped out.  Doesn't seem typical of him, but in those instances, his passion was running high.  Still can't be said on radio or TV, even though many were likely thinking the same things, even if it is not typical of them either.   Little fine, some time... all goes away.
    • Definitely need to go with the younger players....The 30 club, here today gone next year....
    • Trends are changing and the notion of giving up on any possession is too. 10 years ago it was a terrible idea to go for it on 4th and 1 on the 50. Today? 20+ teams do it no questions. Why? Because the odds are more likely you get a positive outcome when factoring the passing penalties than a turnover.  You know who rarely gives up on possessions? Belicheck. I would be shocked to see the Pats not call a slant or screen in that scenario on 2nd down. Belicheck should call You and ask what everyone else always does and he'd be a better coach.  
    • I said they are a second rate organization because they rushed their star player back from major surgery, causing making said injury even worse.  You stupidly implied that I said they are a second rate organization because their star player had an injury.  Go back and reread what you bolded in your response to me above if you are still confused, dummy:   ***Another brilliant move by that second rate organization.....having their superstar play in a regular season NFL game 6 f'ing weeks after having back surgery.***   And where did I say his career is over?  I didn't.  I said he will never be the same player.  Again, if you are still having issues comprehending this, what I said is right there in print earlier in this thread:   ***In all likelihood, the JJ Watt that we all know is done for. ***   I also suggest you log onto TexanTalk and read very closely posts made by CloakNNNDagger in regards to JJ Watt and his injury.  Dude won't be getting 20.5 sacks in a season, ever again.
