Andrew was pretty bad

17 posts in this topic

in between all those Great plays. ;- )

Andrew Finally unleashed his Wild Thing Major League arm and threw the ball Over the Fence for an Int.

Now we know why he takes some off of his throws. loluck

Ya, on the winning drive Shipley at LG, Link at RT. Never has a QB done so much, with the help of .. ...! haha!

Yes they were Mostly Rookies, by the end of pre-season I said we were Loaded in our Receiving core, Wowee I sure feel good about this group today.

They didn`t throw a lot towards Vontae, he held his own when they did. He tackled very well and busted up quite a few plays. GJob.

Sure would like to have 3 Cory Reddings. He shucks blockers and makes tackles. He did give up his position when the RB ran for-ever through his hole. DBrown should learn about cuts like that. Donald has to go.

I have been giving Antonio J a hard time for doing mostly Nothing at NT. Maybe it was the matchup, whatever, he seemed to have a touch of maddog in him yesterday and played pretty darned good. Way to go!!

QB`s HATE pressure up the middle, makes`em p a little sometimes.

We are not beating very good teams, but we are not losing to them either. Good Character and a Winning Attitude, Go Colts!!

I think the defense has played pretty well in when you take into account of our expectations this season. While our pressure on the opposing QBs still leaves a lot to be desired, our cornerbacks Butler, Vaughn, and Davis when he has been in, have played well, and Freeman has been exceptional. I was hoping Chapman would be back this season to see if he is the real deal, but I can see why it is better to be safer than sorry in that situation. Looking forward to next season when he is in the fold.

Vontae was pretty good, except for the Johnson touchdown. I don't know why he had to fall down right before the ball got there. He might have been able to make a play on the ball.

The run defense was tremendous, aside from Bell's big carry.

Yes, considering all the turnovers and the Lions starting positions, the D did very well. One gashing run. And no one is going to stop Megatron. We did a pretty fair job of containing him in spite of his career day.

I'm not sure anyone could or should expect more considering the talent.

They way this team pulls out wins is very reminiscent of the Harbaugh days. Not the players, but the attitude against odds. Yes, Andrew was brilliant on the last two drives, but so was everyone else.

I couldn't believe that Davis fell down either.

But it showed 2 things on that play:

1. Johnson is one of the fastest WR in the game and with his 6'5" frame, he has long strides.

2. Vontae is coming back from an injury.

I don't think any of that has anything to do with why he fell down right before the ball got there. But that's okay. He very well could have been right there with Calvin Johnson, and because he's Calvin Johnson, he probably would still have made the catch and scored the touchdown.

Alas.

Yeah I was watching Vontae that entire play. To be honest I had no idea who Stafford was passing to when he ended up rolling right...Vontae kept up with him for the most part after a long progressing route. It may have been a different story if he didnt fall...or if the DLine provided more timely pressure, lol. I'm not gonna complain though. They were decent against a quality OLine

I'm pretty sure Davis fell down because his foot coming forward tripped on CJ's foot that was behind him as he was running...

In other words.... Davis tripped over Megatron's foot. I don't know what else it could have been, and that's the way I saw it....

Yes, I think so too News. That ball was out in front of Meg anyway, Deion might have made a play on it.

We did hammer them in the running game, always fun to watch a swarming D get after it. Vontae made a difference there. Nice Job All! Grrrrrr!

I am really Happy for our Colts, from the Big Kahuna Mr. Irsay, and a man who I hope becomes Renowned & Fabled GM Grigson,(haha) to Coach P, BA, rest of the Coaches, our well lead Players, and the towell boys.

I thought we would see a lot of nice plays this season because of Andrew, hhhahahahaha, ya there has been a few. lmao!

BA`s downfield Big Bomb O is growing on me.

Add a real good line (two players) and a solid running game (1 more back), a few more underneath passes mixed in........... and there you have it... the O-Monster.

If can stay on the field, he'll justify the second round pick. I think he'll be solid for a few years.

I think the Calvin Johson touchdown on Vontae was more a result of Stafford having too much time. If the pass rush didn't take so long to get to him, I don't think the lions get enough time to make that throw.

On the subject of Luck playing bad, I don't think it was one of his better games. However after listening to B.A. it seems more than one of the interceptions was the fault of our WR not being in the proper areas of the field when Luck made the throw. So I don't know how much of the blame to place on Luck yesterday. From a fans point of view it appeared like he alone was the one stinking up the joint. I'll take the coaches assessment though.

Good point on WR`s being in the wrong spot, can remember P Money throwing some Int`s that made you wonder who in the heck was he throwing it to? And usually would hear later it was the WR`s fault running a wrong route. Sure looked from my living room though like Luck was making some really bad throws midway through the game and looks like was the same deal. Cant argue with his accuracy on that amazing TD throw with a defender on him on the run to Brazil. Awsome!

    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      Gavin.....   JSkinnz doesn't think that.   But from your posts you seem to imply that you know better than they do.     And THAT'S what he's noting.   Not that you have access to the same information.     But you jump to conclusions based on your views and then try to sell them here as just as valid as what a pro scout will tell you.   For example,  I wonder if you saw the video on the Scouts talking about Clark?     Because they'll tell you what you need to know.     And that video says your views are seriously wrong.  
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      http://draftbreakdown.com/video/leraven-clark-vs-baylor-2015/ http://draftbreakdown.com/video/leraven-clark-vs-lsu-2015/ http://draftbreakdown.com/video/leraven-clark-vs-lsu-2015/   My biggest concern with him is footwork which just simply does not exist at times and that he relies to much on his long arms. His long arms bailed him out from time to time in college. I don't see that happening against superior competition in the NFL. He has his share of good blocks, Its nowhere near all bad and the thing he has going most for him is his mobility in my opinion but his technique is all over the place and he lacks strength   Strengths:   -Mobility -Anchors against bull rushers well   Weaknesses:   -Stays flat towards LOS in pass protection to often in stead of facing sideline creating a wall between the rusher and the QB (thereby creating a natural running lane or a place for Luck to step into the pocket) -Change of direction is limited. Moves one way well but if a defender crosses back across his face the other way he struggles to recover...I tend to think this is a coordination issue or footwork isssue more than just the fact that he is not capable because of lack of agility...I actually think he is capable physically with practice -More than mobile enough to get to the 2nd level but can struggle to find the Linebacker sometimes -Hands are all over the place at times. -And of course lack of NFL caliber strength which I'm not concerned about provided he stays healthy and committed in the weight room. Its normal for this to be an issue with most college players
    • Defensive expectation for Indy in 2016
      Yep.  I didn't say we had a great defense yet.  I said our defense can play inspired if the offense plays great.  I also want a dominant defense but we aren't there yet.
    • The Trouble With Andrew Luck
      Funny how you disect generalities in your first paragraph yet your second is one giant generality. Pot meet kettle.   Great teams mask their weaknesses fairly well actually. Denver masked its shoddy QB play last season by running a low-tempo, ball control offense. New England masked it's lack of a rushing attack by having Brady sit back in a quick passing offense.

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
