Career Days against Colts

18 posts in this topic

Great win yesterday, no doubt about the heart of this team.

I do have a question though.....

Doesn't it seem like everytime we play a team, they always have somebody that has a career day against us? It drives me nuts!

Calvin has a career day of catches.

Shaun Greene had a career day on us.

I think Edelmann had a career days against us.

Those are a few off top of my head.

I know we're in a transition year, but the Defense needs to tighten up!

Brandon Marshall sticks out to me specifically. That's when Tim Jennings was covering him the entire game. Of course that was our old system when Jennings wasn't a cover corner.

Andrew luck, career high in passing td's, most wins as a rookie, threw a career high in passing yards, 5 comeback wins in a season out of 12 games, franchise record for rookie wr of 100 yard games, did I mention Luck has the team poised as a rookie to be in the playoffs? Are the jets or the lions going or the jags? Doesn't appear like it. Stuff happens and the team could be better but after a year of 2-14 and a total clear out of the front office, coaches and 2/3 of the team to be replaced with multiple rookies, I'd say we are ahead of the curve, wouldn't you?

Yeah almost like we are team in transition to a 3/4 defense that really doesn't have the peaces for it.

Stay patient with the defense I think all the winning has made people forget this is still season one into the rebuilding process. While we have had great early returns this is not finished yet.

That wasn't just a career day. He set an all time record for single game receptions.

Most people thought Calvin would have 12 catches, 200 yards and two touchdowns (very nearly did, by the way, if not for the underthrow by Stafford in the end zone). No shame in giving up a career best to the best receiver in the game.

It's more concerning when pedestrian players like Shonn Greene and Julian Edelman destroy us.

I tried like heck to find the record for most wins by a rookie QB as I know it is not 8. That is the record for the most wins by a QB taken #1 overall. I kept googling but it would not give me a list of the most wins by a rookie QB. I do know off hand that Rothlesburger was 13-0 in his rookie year. That is probably the record.

Yeah I'm almost positive Big Ben has the record. Did he start that year? I know Tommy Maddox was there and went down. But you are correct Luck broke Sam Bradford's record of 7 for most wins by a #1 overall QB.

We do have a lot of those against our defense. I wonder how that stands against other teams. Is there a way to see what teams all the records were scored against?

Andrew had a career day as well, furthering the record for rookies on 300 yd games, being a big part of the first TD winning score after time expired in 22 years, and capturing the most wins for a rookie QB.

The jets game we had both Redding, Moala, Mathis, Angerer, and Davis out. All of those are top notch players for us against the run.

Nobody ever really covers Megatron, that is why he is first in most receiving categories.

Maddox started I think the first two or three games. Must be 3 if Ben was 13-0....

The Colts aren´t rebuilding, they are building a Monster that no one can get rid off. And from my point of view, the Monster has a tendency to always getting the last word :-)

Call it whatever you want but the point is that the Colts are still in the phase where they are trying to get key peaces to what this team will become. I think people forget that and act like this team has all the players it's going to have at times.

That's the most intriguing part. Imagine if Grigson keeps making good decisions, and if the players we have now continue developing, how good we'll be in a couple years.

I always look at the Falcons as an example of how to rebuild, reload, restructure, whatever. They went from 5-11 to 11-5, with a rookie GM, head coach and quarterback, in one season. This is the fifth year of a pretty successful regime, and they still haven't won a playoff game. I think we're already ahead of the curve, especially factoring in the Pagano situation. Hopefully we can get a playoff victory in less than five seasons.

    • Where were you last season?
    • Im not really sure what I personally categorize a slow start. I think it depends on the game. A 5 minute, 10+ play drive that ends in a missed FG vs Denver isnt as concerning as a 3 and out vs New Orleans. Putting up yards and keeping up Time of Possession early are typically signs of success later in the game.     That being said, our lack of opening drive points over the last few seasons was more concerning than I originally thought. But looking at all the results after that story I posted, we put up points in our opening drive in half of our games for the rest of the year. Hopefully that is the beginning of the end for all the slow start talk.  
    • Remember Irsay and Grigsons initial conversation while interviewing Pagano?  That players would run through a wall for him.  We believe That is the main basis on which they hired him and Irsay still obviously values this skill set.  It was never said he was or was going to be Nicolaj Tesla (sp).   Skip to what Ballard said after meeting with Pagano.  He actually said Pagano was smart.  Did anybody else catch that?  He didn't have to use that word but he did.  His reputation is as a straight shooter, so maybe there is more to our coach than meets the eye.  Or his country manners are so that he is overly polite. Main thing is that he will be our coach and the 2 of them are on the same page and we have a great defensive and RB draft class ahead.  I'm excited.
    • Pagano will never win a Super Bowl in this league. He's just not built for that stuff.
    • Mmmm. This would not be my definition. The score at the end of the first quarter would be more realistic. But all pretty academic really, it's the score at the end of the forth quarter that matters!
