Brown and Ballard....23 caries, 77 yards...combined.....

Not blaming them...There werent many holes...

I've whined about this before but I wish we'd throw little short passes to the backs

Luck done not like to 'check down', and take the little dump opffs....does he?

He'll learn

I also posted a topic about bringing the backs into the passing game. It would give Luck a few more completions rather than forced incompletions. His only completion to Brown went for a 23 yard gain. How many times do we need to see him break one before we start creating plays for this back! Ballard also has shown in the Tenessee game that he can make big plays in the passing game.

Manning used to be like that. too.....in his early days..

..and now he lives off the little 5-yard candy bar passes....They keep drives going and they set up the deep shots....

To be fair..Ballard dropped one....

..but remember the first play of Luck's career...the middle screen to Brown ...for a TD?

...can we see that a couple of times a game......its like a draw play..and if its dropped, its an incomplete..pass...no harm

He'll learn fast too. It took a long time for Peyton to just take what they were giving him. (I hate always comparing them, but I'm just trying to point out that the great ones also have to learn patience)

He dumped off to Ballard today, it would have been a tough catch but it hit him in the hands and he dropped it. I agree though, remember the wheel route that Addai was so good at? I'd love to see them bring that back for Brown.

They brought this point up on the broadcast. It could be that some of these "bad" calls by the coaches that some say we make with Luck going deep too often are more a result of Luck not checking down than the play call.

With that said you are a spot on the line did not do a good enough job blocking for the run today against the 31st ranked run defense in the NFL.

It does concern me a bit how easy it is the tell what the Colts are going to do between pass and run. I used to love how Manning would run the stretch and either give it to James to fake the defense out and hit Harrison long. Right now, when the Colts are going to run, they overload one side. When they are going to pass, they play three WRs. I do hope as the run game develops that Arians is setting a trap for the playoffs where they will play action out of run formations more.

I'll say this I saw some plays where we tried to run play action and the Bills were just not bitting at all and they were just using the time it took to do the play fake to close on Luck and either presure him or sack him. I think they dumped the play action because it was not getting the results they wanted or needed today.

When Brown actually catches passes he is a great receiving back. I tink when we see how we'll Brown does on screens and dumpoffs we're seeing how he'd be behind a good OL.

      I don't like the move to not re-sign Vogel, but I'm cautiously optimistic.  The guys know how to play defense, so hopefully there won't be a significant drop off defensively with the next coach.  We do need better offensive production and Vogel did have quite a few in-game errors with rotations, so there is definitely room for improvement.  But there's no question that the next coach has some big shoes to fill, and Bird is on the hot seat to bring more talent to this team, in my opinion.

      If you disagreed, then all you had to do was say so. Nothing wrong with saying, hey I disagree, and here is why. However, that is not your go-to move, these days. Your move is to throw insults at people. You have a recent history of putting people down when you disagree with them. I have a history of spending an entire night making people with hot tempers very upset. We could easily become fire and wind mixed, and that would not be much fun for the other members of the board.    What happens if I throw insults back? Anything good? Nope. We have both been on these boards for several years, and we both know how this works. Funny thing is, you and I have had only few heated debates against each other. That is actually not too bad, especially over the stretch of 15 years or so.    I know you from the old days. I remember when you changed your name to coffeedrinker from tsabinas. You used to add a lot of good insight to the boards. If memory serves me correctly, I think you used to work with Dano, on the old Colts News site. It was an abrasive group back then, but you were different. Easier to talk to. I am not sure what soured you. Maybe the fans attitude over the years. It has happened to me a few times over the years too. It just isn't worth it though.   You call me "easy to offend" (another insult); well I call it just not wanting to go down that rabbit hole with you. I call it tired of going down those rabbit holes. Why should we ever want to? We are getting too old to pull down our pants and measure. When can respectfully disagree. I have come to the conclusion that from here on out if someone gets rude, then I am just done with the conversation. There is nothing to win or lose here, and it is just not worth my time.

      You see the lucky bounces they get with the puck and you'd think that couldn't last an entire series, but it's lasted enough for them to get 3 wins.  There is hope in that the Caps were leading the Rangers 3-1 last year and lost 4-3, so there is recent history dictating it's very possible.  Once again, if they can win game 5 at home, then they get a rested Orpik back for game 6.  Orpik can't necessarily help you beat the brick wall known as Matthew Murray, but he can handle things on the defensive end and hopefully block a few of those bouncing pucks going to the net.  If that happens, you get game 7 at home.  So it's very possible and I really hope they make the comeback, but it doesn't look promising

      I don't think you can come away from any draft with just two players on the roster and call it a good draft.   Especially after it comes right after the 2013 draft,  which also had just two bodies and that includes Vonte.   You have to replenish the roster and the Colts have failed to do it on a number of levels,  both the draft,  and Free Agency.   Getting just four total bodies over a two year window is why there's been so much pressure on the front office to hit in '15 and '16.   By the way,   hard an amazing stat the other day.     That the New York Football Giants have just ONE drafted player out of 5 drafts from 2009 to 2013.     30 picks ---- ONE player!!         Holy Cow!!   And their GM,  Jerry Reese has been the man at the helm for TWO Super Bowl wins!!   That explains -- in part -- how the Giants have had FOUR straight sub-500 years.      I don't want the Colts to end up there.......     Just saying....
