I hate it when they bring up the 1 & dones or choke
He took the team multiple times to leads with or without late drives to get that lead only to see the defense or special team & / or coaching decisions to ruin it with less than a minute left sometimes less than 40 seconds if remember right , Thats all u should have to ask of your QB
case in point
Vs jets late drive gets lead with 1 minute left + / - 10 - 20 seconds
we kickoff , special team allows for 2nd time in game backup returner cromartie a 40-50 yard return, Jets get some yards , 30 seconds maybe left , maybe less time too , Jets look like they
are going to take long FG with kicker that has poor % from that range , Caldwell calls time out, Jets now can reconsider and plan a play, defense allows Sanchez no less to make a throw and easy FG from what the 18 or with 18 seconds left -
Great special teams , great D , great coach call all in last drive of game for a loss
Know exact description maybe wriong but its pretty accurate account of what happened
Just take same wash rinse , repeat a loss , again not his fault
Here is hoping Colts staff can see what could of been and what is needed to do for Luck
BUILD A COMPLETE TEAM , thats 1 with balance, doesnt need # 1 O or D but really good on both sides of the ball
Elway turned the team 180 degrees in 2 years to win SB
Hate him if u want but he saw an issue and fixed it, LEARN COLTS STAFF< LEARN
u squandered alot of Peyton years, dont do it to Luck, QB's like that dont always come back to back
This has to happen. This team lost much of it identity by bringing in other teams' trash to replace guys. We had great leadership in that locker room and replacing guys like Reggie Wayne, Dwight Freeney, and Antoine Beathea with Andre Johnson, Erik Walden, and LaRon Landry instead of with guys that we drafted that were able to learn from those guys and be "horseshoe" guys is not a recipe for success. You bring in guys with their own agendas and just want a paycheck.
I like this a lot. Our lbs would be set for the future and looking pretty good. I don't think Spence will fall to the first pick the second let alone to our pick in the first. Butler is another guy I don't think would be available where you have him. I'd love it. But I agree with needing a center. Depending on who's available in the 3rd or 4th I'd swap out Joseph or Hall for a center. I think with signing a cb in FA and smith from last year we don't need another cb as much. I think we could go center in the third and safety in the 4th and still get good guys. I'd like to us the Colts get our line set for the future this year. But this is your scenario and it's not bad at all.
