I was surprised: Dropped passes, few holes

16 posts in this topic

I know we won..I'm happy at 6-3..

Luck missed some receivers but we had some drops...in perfect conditions against an average defense...

Its not like there's anything we can do..except get Fleener back in there...

..but we're dropping a lot of yards .....

Ballard and Brown just didnt have any holes...although I love the reverses with Hilton...

maybe with 9 days off we'll be a little sharper at NE

Avery dropped a 50 yards pass, the Oline i think did a good job being injured, hopefully againts NE we will have fleener back, mathis, powers, vonate davis, justice, etc etc. FULL team against NE!!

Reggie dropped a couple...but you are right about being shorthanded in the line...Brown and Ballard: 90 yards on 26 carries..

But that's the best point right there//alex..9 days off

I think that the O-line actually didn't perform well. We saw last week what Luck was able to do when offered protection. Against the Jaguars, he didn't have much time to throw. On the long pass that was intercepted but then called back because of the roughing the passer call, he couldn't step into his throw. It sailed on him and it was short, resulting in a potential interception. (He shouldn't have thrown it in the first place if he couldn't step into the throw).

Overall, we got a sloppy win against a team that I am glad we finally dominated. But I still feel like we could have been sharper.

Very happy we got the win, but we'll need to be alot sharper against the patriots if we expect to win. Way too many dropped balls by the receivers, the 50 yard bomb to Avery was a perfect pass from Andrew it was right in his hands, have no idea how he dropped that. If the receivers had caught all the balls that they should have Andrew would have had another 300 yd game. On the other hand was very impressed with Butler at cb, he definitely should be starting over either Davis or Powers!

The O line was suspect from day one. Now we're missing two starters. Yet they played very well.

Enjoy the win, you may have many more 'observations' after the next game...

The O-Line didn`t give good protection (Link Stank of course), Shipley wasn`t fast enough to do his assignments.

Avery got one Hand on the ball on that bomb, misjudged it in that 2 tenths of a second he had to adjust. The guy has Very Good hands, stuff happens.

Some drop by Reggie.

We are not a good team really. The competition has been marginal at best. But it is always nice to win . Until draft time!

Thursday games are made for mediocrity.

It actually wouldn't hurt my feelings too much if Powers wasn't back yet. He gets burned way too much.

I noticed Reggie was wearing some gloves in this game and he drops the 1st 2 passes. It couldn't have been cold in Florida. I never noticed him wearing any before. Avery dropped the easy one and caught the tough one just like last week, Hilton dropped the easy one and caught the tough one. That is either nerves or lack of concentration.

Reggie ALWAYS has gloves on.

Yeah, we did not play our best BUT that shows how much we have come. We won in a Blowout not playing nearly our best with a lot of starters not playing.

Of course it was against the Jaguars.

It doesn't matter if we blew out the 49ers or the Jags. A win is a win no matter how it is done.

    • Actually, if I'm being totally honest here, I'd make NFL referees a permanent 12 month position with great benefits & a nice salary vs the temporary occupation it is now.    My reasoning is simple: If you compensate people well so that they can devote their entire time perfecting & improving their craft, they tend to excel at it & negate their mistakes over time.    Plus, with all the new rules/modifications that get tweaked every yr, it would be a wise move to validate to your referee crews that you value their attention to detail through their pocket book. When you pay people well, they strive to make their bosses look good. 
    • Pre-game & halftime interviews with both head coaches. Yeah I know, they are not an NFL rule per say unless you wanna count them as a CBA mandate to make themselves available to journalists during a game.    I just have never really gotten anything meaningful over these reporter/coach interactions. 90% of the remarks are tired cliches & even if you missed part of the game; nobody ever looks online to say hear what Erin Andrews asked a coach at halftime. 
    • I agree with taking away the taunting rule tool because it's just another version of smack talking live. If you wanna ban the throat slashing gesture, the pretend pistol firing gesture, or the archery firing motion fine; but everything else is fair game.   It's your job to shut your adversary up by scoring TDs or crippling their ground game on defense on 3rd down. And why is the league allowed to promote their shield & jerseys for profit but players can't engage in individual expressions of self promotion either? Seems highly hypocritical to me Mr. Commissioner. Just saying. 
    • I kind of agree with this reverting back I mean. This idea that both sides get an opportunity to touch the ball on offense is overrated to me. Yeah I know, the coin toss by a ref was given excessive weight to a random element of chance, but still. I liked it when the first score in OT even a FG could win the darn game. It was a rush man. The arbitrariness of it all in overtime so many things coaches had no control over: heads or tails on the toss, hearing what player captains declared on the field incorrectly before the toss itself; & life in general isn't fair anyway. Why should both teams get the ball in OT anyway? It gives almost voodoo magic mystique to how the coin lands.    Plus, a lot of players can get injured playing an extra quarter of football. They're tired, exhausted, & say a coach is on the hot seat by their owner & needs to make the playoffs to retain their job...And then wham the team looses their star WR or DB? Crap.    Not only that. Field Goals are crisp, clean, & the guys can get a shower faster & clean up sooner for post game interviews too.    Last but not least, one of the reasons I refuse to watch baseball is that the games take too long to finally conclude & the longer games play out the more it interferes with TV programming & sleeping habits of some fans too. Length isn't always an asset in broadcasting as producers or consumers overall. 
    •   That would be my pick too. I don't think any other team has underachieved as much in the past few years. They have questionmarks at LB, S, OL and HC, along with Rivers late game meltdowns but if Lynn proves out to be at least average coach, I think they are fairly serious threat. That's one stacked division they play in though and rough schedule.
