Finishing Drives

Recommended Posts

#12    418

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.

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.

    • Hey there! I thought you looked familiar. I'm so sorry for your loss.  Glad to have you back
    • I can't say that I remember because I think you stopped posting around the time I joined, but welcome back! I'm glad that you are getting your groove back, so to speak. I'm sure it was (and is) incredibly difficult in ways I couldn't imagine.    This parrot situation sounds interesting... are we talking a real life parrot? If so, does it talk?    I have 3 girls. The oldest two are my step kids and they are wonderful, amazing girls, but they can't stand anything football related, it bores them to tears, but my littlest one (Ruby) is 2 and she will sit through an entire game with me (commercials and all) and go crazy when the Colts score (I'm still trying to teach her not to go crazy for the other teams TDs). She yells "Touchdown! Go Colts!!" Her favorite part is when someone kicks a field goal or (ugh) punts.    So, welcome back, for what it's worth. The forum is probably more snippy lately because of the state the team seems to be in, but I still enjoy interacting with these guys and gals. Lots of good info, all in one place, too.   Sorry for the ramble, but the image I got of a parrot saying "Go Colts" made me think of my Roo.
