Bad Luck in Road Games

Literally. Sometimes, tgings would be a lot easier if he tucked ball and ran more

Sometimes you press when your D gives up 1000 points.

What happened to the No Huddle? Did we throw it out after last week? This game better prove to Grigs that this OLine is horrible and we need new faces on the whole thing.

Need a new offensive system. Luck has a lot to do with the team record. Not Luck the QB, but actual luck.

I am already thinking about Buffalo.......

We will take it all out on them at home. Home sweet home......

And look on the plus side, Detroit is really shaky too this year. They might have had their last stand today vs. GB.

Megatron vs these DBs is scary.

They couldn't even beat a Packers team today missing Clay Matthews and Woodson.

We might have issues but that game is much more winnable then todays in NE. Maybe we have Vontae back too which will be huge.

Our O line is mediocre. We've got to improve in order for Luck to have enough time to throw and give the RBs some running lanes. Fix that and Luck will be able to make better decisions with the ball.

Need a new offensive system. Luck has a lot to do with the team record. Not Luck the QB, but actual luck.

Arians is an aggressive play caller in the passing game. It has worked for the majority of our games, but he obviously did little to adjust to the Patriots D. I hope this game has opened his eyes to the fact that throwing deep over the middle is not going to work if you do the same thing over and over against an elite team. We need more balance to the offense. I'm willing to give Arians a couple of seasons to see what he can do with Luck and the offense as they progress, but he needs to grow and develop with them.

If your expectation of him is to score 60 points yes. He is directly responsible for 14 Patriots scores.

Can't really say the D takes less heat than Andrew for allowing the 45 other points scored.

He did not play great today though no doubt about that.

For a rookie he played like a rookie. I think what was more surprising was the defense. No pressure whatsoever. Both our starting guards were out. Lots of poor tackling as well, a lot of extra yards after contact. Think back to the Manning days and how Brady never lit it up that much because Mathis and Freeney would constantly be in his face. That was with a better Pats O line too. I expected Brady to be pressured much more but I was surprised. Freeney is laughing all the way to the bank ($$$)

Yeah! How dare a rookie QB who's been playing top caliber against mediocre teams do so poorly against a championship caliber team.

Really, though, what were you really expecting??

awww, did i hurt you feelings? feel free to find one post by me where i espouse the greatness of luck. saying people are unwilling to criticize luck is just wrong....u forget about all the lack or arm strength comments or the advice given to his mechanics at the beginning of the season? i think most people realize he is a rookie who will make dumb mistakes time to time...so pointing it out is just a waste of time. not to mention the fact the the defense and special teams also played like turd.

Freeney isn't what he used to be and could still be recovering from the ankle injury. I still saw a few good pressures by him and he did get 2 flags thrown his direction. I didn't think he had a terrible game. I just think we're still not getting any push up the middle.

I am not, everyone knows I am not. I will call it like I see it. Luck has been turning the ball over way too much for my liking. Arians' play calling is a big part of it too, IMO. Cant always call the deep yardage pass, dumpoffs and screen passes to RBs etc. should be included in the arsenal too. Those long yardage passes take time to form and if the coverage is good, one of 3 things will happen - a sack (which is OK, IMO), a strip fumble or a bad throw into tight coverage. The latter two happened more often, IMO.

He was a big part of the loss but do you honestly think we win even if he doesnt throw a single INT?

Its expected considering the situations were putting this kid into. This is what, the 4th or 5th game already, into his rookie season, that he's thrown 40+ times? I think there has maybe been 2-3 games combined this year where a rookie QB has thrown that much. The other thing is alot of those attempts arent screens or dump offs like you mentioned. They are long developing plays with 4-5 reads.

We need to reduce his load slightly. I like that Luck is capable of handling alot of responsibility already but this is too much IMO.

Absolutely agree that you cannot make a rookie throw like that with so many long developing plays. Yes, Luck has a short term memory and will brush it off and will be fine in the long term. But Arians is doing the offense and the team a disservice by calling too many of those plays, IMO. I hope he leans to 30 plus runs vs the lowest ranked rush D in the league, the Bills. If not, I will have an issue with his play calling.

It's actually the sixth game of 40+ and his average per game this season is something like 42 attempts. I've said it several times before and I'll say it again... Arians is doing you guys a massive disservice.

Add to that the number of hits Luck takes week in and week out... even a guy with his frame, size, there are limits. He took a few more shots to the head today. I am not sure how exactly to read the NFL QB Hits stats (http://www.nfl.com/stats/categorystats?tabSeq=2&offensiveStatisticCategory=OFFENSIVE_LINE&role=TM&d-447263-n=1&d-447263-o=2&archive=false&d-447263-p=1&qualified=true&d-447263-s=PASSING_QBHIT), because I've heard much larger numbers for Vick, for example, but according to the NFL, Luck has been hit the third most this season, and that doesn't include today.

That's something I've noticed more and more as the season has gone on. As much of a fuss has been made about our guy taking unnecessary hits, Luck has had it just as bad and has really taken a lot of the same kinds of hits despite being less of a scrambler.

Thank you!

Both of you are delusional. Luck made plenty of bad throws and plays. Was the loss on his shoulders? He'll no! We were up and doing good. That punt return started it off. Then luck started pressing, and their d was all over Luck. Our defense couldn't stop a thing. So lets get real here.

    • @Finball and Chicago are up next
    • With the 220th pick, The Washington Redskins select:    Travin Dural, WR, LSU   @Finball and The Bears are on the clock
    • I wanted to create a topic where we could discuss the facts that were presented in Stampede Blue's film breakdown of our current Offensive lineman and some info I pulled from PFF, and hopefully get a better understanding of what it is they do well and where they need to improve. I see a lot of people that post here that have some misconceptions about each player, and these film breakdowns may clear up some of that, so that we can have a more appropriate discussion on what to do in the draft and where we stand as a team.   So, for the sake of saving time, I put a link to all the articles below, and summarized the main takeaways from each. (Everything below was taken from the articles I've linked, none of it is my own deductions or thoughts.)   PFF Offensive Line Rankings- Colts Ranked 25th Overall- The most interesting bit of information from this was that they felt Castonzo had a really strong year, and that our original starting 5 were far superior to ANY combination we used when we had to account for injuries.   Anthony Castonzo - PFF 20th Ranked LT Strengths- Good awareness, athletic and strong, good ability to anchor, wins most of the time when he initiates contact. Weaknesses- Way too inconsistent, sometimes utilizes poor technique, susceptible to bull rushes Pass Protection- Good
      Run Blocking- Good-  (PFF ranked Castonzo as our top rated run blocker) Upside- If he can work on his technique, he can become the top level LT that we need him to be, and that he was a few years ago. Overall- Solid Starter   Jack Mewhort  Strengths- Everything- Athletic, intelligent, great in both pass protection and run blocking. Mewhort should be a rock on our O-line for years. Weaknesses- Very little, occasionally released a block too early. Pass Protection- High Quality Run Blocking- High Quality Upside- Perennial Pro-Bowler
      Overall- High Quality Starter   Joe Haeg at RG and Joe Haeg at RT Strengths- Very mobile, able to get to and be effective at the second level, good technique, like Castonzo he wins most of the time that he initiates contact, good run blocker Weaknesses- Very poor anchor that becomes a major liability in pass protection, not physically strong enough to beat some defenders when asked to "hold the line," victim of making some mental errors that could be attributed to being a rookie Pass Protection- Below Average
      Run Blocking- Good Upside- If he is able to add strength in the weightroom and develop a stronger anchor, Haeg could be a strong starter at RG or RT in the future. But until he can add strength and develop his anchor, his ceiling is very limited.
      Overall- Back-Up with upside.     Le'Raven Clark Strengths- In his rookie season, Clark showed flashes of being a High Quality Starter. Incredible athlete, great anchor, long arms and strong hands, can shadow defenders well, athletic enough to get to the second level in the run game.  Weaknesses- In his rookie season, made some mental errors, susceptible to being beat with leverage when he punches and pushes off instead of locking on. Pass Protection- Good Run Blocking- Good Upside- As he develops, Clark could become our future LT if Castonzo doesn't improve. This upcoming year could be a breakout year for Clark.
      Overall- Solid Starter     Denzelle Good- Pass blocking and run blocking Strengths- The biggest and perhaps strongest lineman on the roster, can win one-on-one in pass protection and run blocking, great anchor, viscous at the point of attack, mauler and brutish run blocker, wins more often than not Weaknesses- Lacks technique in certain areas such as dealing with speed rush, releases blocks too quickly on occasion, not very mobile in the run game, loses his balance in both the run game and passing game Pass Protection- Good Run Blocking- Good Upside- Good has the ability to be our starting RG if he can develop his technique, work on keeping his balance, and potentially drop weight in order to become more mobile in the run game. Hopefully, with help from Joe Philbin, as he enters his 3rd season, he shows improvement in those areas and can put a strangle hold on the RG spot.
      Overall- Solid Starter ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________   Missing from this list is obviously Kelly, but we all know he's a stud and is going to be our starting Center for years to come. Also, there is no info on newly signed Brian Schwenke.   Using this information, I think we can see that there is a ton of upside with our current roster.    Kelly, Mewhort, and Le'Raven Clark look to be the real deal. Denzelle Good has size and strength that cannot be taught. If he can work on his technique a bit he could become a huge asset for us. Same thing with Haeg. Haeg shows very good technique, and if he can add some strength and develop a strong anchor (easier said than done, I know) I think Haeg could turn into an All-Pro RG or RT. And if we can get Castonzo back to the level he was playing at before, then we're all set at LT and RT.   I bring a lot of this up because I know the media has made a big deal about the Colts spending a high draft pick on OL. Now, I was all for trying to sign one of the top Free Agent Guards, because we had the money, but I think we have more pressing needs to address in the draft. Good is starting his 3rd year, Haeg and Clark are entering their second. If these guys can take some big steps forward and can STAY HEALTHY, our line could be leaps and bounds better.   Personally, looking at the information above, I think it would be a mistake to use anything more than a 4th round pick on another lineman.   And as a side note, the O-line has been in Indy working together, training and in the weight room for a lot of the off-season. That gives me even more hope, especially for a player like Haeg.
