Our Offensive Philosophy

131 posts in this topic

How can a game manager at one time break the record for most passing touchdowns in a season with 49 which included 6 passing touchdowns vs Miami and appear in 5 Super Bowls?, Consistent is the most important word you said out of those 7 you used to describe the Pats offense, I dont think 49 touchdowns (6 coming in one game) is boring, predictable? yes but those kinds of passes are heck to stop, we should know, teams have been dinking and dunking on us for years with short quick routes all the way down the field. The other method obviously works of slingiing it down the field sure but alot more risks are involved

I get what he was saying. The Pats offense doesn't call for Brady to make as many difficult throws as other offenses. That doesn't mean he can't make those throws, it just means he usually doesn't have to. Football is about winning at the end of the day, and what the Pats are doing on offense is very efficient and safe. It's smart football and it wins games, but at times, it IS very boring to watch. I can see why someone would make the comparison of Tom Brady to a game manager. He's still one of the GOAT, though

I think all we want, as Colts fans, is just a little more balance. Not too much of either extreme. I don't mind us taking shots downfield, so long as it's not every other pass, and so long as they are connecting more times than not. When they don't connect, it causes our offense to stall because we end up in so many 3rd and longs.

Luck is also a rookie throwing to the most reliable receiver on the team?

I said Super Game Manager. He never throws the difficult passes because he doesn't have to. He just throws the correct pass almost all the time. Isn't that the definition of game manager? It's not his fault, but if asked to do what Luck and RG3 are doing, I really don't think he could do it. If he went 1 year with an inferior Oline, he would be toast.

He lost his Pro Bowl Left Tackle, Has been having to compete with his own defense (at least Secondary) to win games, What exactly has Robert Griffin done that Brady has not done? I like Robert Griffin, he has looked impressive but lets be honest if Griffin becomes half the QB that Brady is then Griffin will have had a pretty darn good career, Brady won the Super Bowl his first year after being subbed in for an injured Bledsoe, Brady has led the Pats to 5 Super Bowl appearances (winning 3), Brady once held the all time passing touchdown record in a season, 2 time super bowl mvp. NFL Comeback player of the year in 2009. 7 Pro Bowls, 2 time MVP, 2007, 2010. If Robert Griffin even comes close to sniffing an ounce of that success then he would be a great QB, Honestly though I dont see him having anywhere near that success, Like him alot but dont see it happening at least not yet

fans always have to have a reason to gripe or down play an opposing player even when it makes no sense

Oh, I guess one game changes what he's done in 10 other games. My mistake.

    • I have to be honest, when inlooked at the list of name , at each position, that he kept on his roster, i really feel better about this team. i'm not making light of our injuries at all. But seriously:   Qb: if #12 goes down, does it matter? I worry about Our depth here rb: whether 4 or 5, interesting. If OL gives anything, this is a nice group OL: when you see the list, looks very promising (ignoring injuries of course).  te:above average wr: very interesting and promising group dl: very exciting possibilities lb: question mark in my eyes safety: if healthy, i like group cb: if healthy, this group could be special, imo. k/p:. We're good.    Is it just me, or does this look like a promising and exciting mix, overall.  Of course, i'm ignoring injuries, but still.
    • I hope for no injuries. We could lose 50-0 but if we come out with 0 serious injuries, that itself is a win.
    • I've always felt it should be cut to two games. The starters can play a majority of game one like they do game 3, then the second game for mostly backups like game 4 is.    At the very least it should be cut down to 3 games. Theres no reason to have 4 or 5 imo. Its risking more injuries, plus the common fan doesn't give a damn about 4 or 5 preseason games. 
    • Hi, Colts fans!    Our Indianapolis Colts conclude their 2016 preseason schedule, as they travel southeast down Interstate 74 to play their annual preseason game with the Cincinnati Bengals.  Tonight is both the Colts 23rd all-time preseason meeting with the Bengals, and 12th visit in Cincinnati for a scheduled preseason game.   Many players are on the bubble tonight to make the regular season roster, and after tonight's game, all NFL teams must cut at least 22 remaining players to meet the mandatory 53-man regular season roster for the 2016 NFL regular season.   Head Coach Chuck Pagano and his coaching staff, General Manager Ryan Grigson, the Colts pro and scouting departments, and perhaps even Colts owner Jim Irsay and his family, go through the annual and unpleasant decisions in personnel, and retaining the best players by position, that will become the 2016 Indianapolis Colts that take the field on opening Sunday, September 11.   Cincinnati though leads the all-time preseason series over Indianapolis entering tonight with 14 wins and 8 losses. Bengals are also in a three game preseason winning streak over our Colts, outscoring 71-23 in those three games.  Colts last preseason win over the Bengals was four years ago, when Indianapolis defeated Cincinnati by the score of 20-16 back on in the preseason finale back on August 30, 2012.   Highlights in that last preseason win over Cincinnati includes two touchdown runs in the second quarter, from 7 yards by Deji Karim, and 1 yard by Darren Evans, two PAT's by Adam Vinateiri, and a Chandler Harnish 42-yard touchdown pass to Dominique Jones.   Cincinnati may currently lead the preseason series 14-8, but more important for Indianapolis, the Colts lead both the all-time regular season series with 17 wins and 10 losses and 2 postseason series. Colts last two regular wins occured during their 2014 NFL season.  Colts defeated and shutout the Bengals 27-0 at LOS (the building) on October 19, and defeated the Bengals again in the rematch in their AFC Wild Card Playoff Game by the score of 26-7 on January 4, 2015, both games played at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building).   NO injuries, and good luck to all the reserve and free agents that are trying to make the cut with both the Colts and the Bengals. GO COLTS!!!!!
    • Interesting. i kind of like the options and depth that gives us at BOTH rb and wr. is Bray elible for ps?  And does anyone here think Bray is noticeably better or higher upside than Rogers or Smith? i've liked the burst from Rogers, the twitchyness.  He kinda reminds me of Tereance Wilkens for some reason.  To me (small sample), Smith has looked smoother and more polished while Rogers looks like he can take it to house at any minute. Perhaps its was just the impact of that 1 big play he had. does anyone think we would look back and regret cutting Bray?  With new kickoffs, punt returners may be better on kick returns actually.
