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

When RGIII is throwing to unknown rookie Wr and Garcon who we all does not have the most realiable hand in the world and thrown for 13 td and 3 pick.....There is something wrong there.....

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.

    • 1970 and 2006. Colts were SB champs, NFL Network did these two years.  My two favorite years as a lifetime Colts fan. A lot of players and coaches to be proud of. I know to most, they don't belong together but I can't help it: both were my Colts, both wore the horseshoe. Unitas, Jones, Peyton and Luck. Moore, Mitchell, Dickey, James and Gore. John Mackey and Dallas Clark. The list goes on. To be a fan for all these years has been rewarding and frustrating. But I'm glad to have been a Colts fan and look forward to possibility seeing a team that ranks up there with some of the best that has ever worn the horseshoe. It may take a little time but I'm hopeful! C-O-L-T-S Colts!!!!
    • The mugshot will be a meme sensation!
    • Yep. We are going backwards and PG saw that and wants out. This teams has big contracts wrapped up in two aging guys Al and Monta and they are awful for this team. By the time you re-sign Teague to his new more expensive contract and depending on what you do with CJ who will be up for a bigger contract you really don't have much room to add anyone....even a shooter like Riddick might not be affordable. Its almost impossible to compete with the Cavs who are like 30 million over the cap when you have an owner like Simon and when you have to over-pay mediocre talent just to come play with you. I do think this team under-achieved but I'm not going to pretend its even close to contending. We are a long ways off from that and I'm sure PG realizes that....and its going to be very tough to convince him we can help him win it all and we will finally pair him with another superstar when we bring in Monta Ellis and say there you go Paul...there's your star upgrade...go compete. I'm sure he believes if he is in LA it will be easier to convince free agents to come sign and win something with him....after all...nowadays it takes 3 or 4 stars to compete with the Cavs and Warriors.
    • I personally thought his first game against Tennessee was his best of the season and top 5 maybe top 3 of his career. I went down to watch that game in person. Sweet seats in the lower bowl.    Luck  came out blazing. It was clear from the beginning there was an emphasis on getting the ball out quickly. And boy did he ever. 3 step drops. 5 step drops. Ball coming out on time. Throwing to spots and hitting receivers as soon as they came out of their breaks.  Back should fades...   Near perfection. Plus I think Doyle dropped a TD just before halftime or he may have flirted with a perfect rating.  Was well worth the trip down to see Luck put on a clinic...
    • If we are close to anything, its close to not being a playoff team. We almost weren't this year.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
