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!

    • Right now, maybe half of the top 15 (or so) interior defensive lineman are 6'1 or less and about 300 lbs or less and arm lenght of around 32 inches (Donald, Atkins, Casey, Daniels, Jarrett/Kyle Williams). Only Donald was a day one 1 pick or drafted in the first two rounds. Casey went in the 3rd round. No one else was picked in the top 100. I don't think there is an other position were so many top players share similar trait and most of them were picked late in the draft.   Are teams that afraid of having a small team that they automatically give worse grade for smaller defensive lineman? If Aaron Donald, for example, had Geno Atkins besides him instead of Michael Brockers, would that line be as effective as one would expect just from the player talent level upgrade from Brockers to Atkins or even worse? I mean, Brockers is a good player but Atkins is on another level. And individually these players are great but would they work as well together on the same line? Not sure if it's as much about the size itself as these players can use it to their advantage in quickness and leverage but maybe two dlineman with short arms would create some issues?   Just wondering why so many of them have fallen late in the draft. I understand that some teams want bigger, physical players (like BB, Parcells etc) but what about those teams that had already gotten steals later in the draft with small interior lineman would jump at the chance to select a player who had great tape and showed similar traits as their best defensive player. Like Grady Jarrett in 2015. Both the Bengals and Titans drafted a dlinemen in the 4th, Jarrett went with first pick in the 5th round Bengals pick was actually two picks before Jarrett was taken.   Though the Bengals did take Billings last year and he might be next to Atkins but he was another 4th round pick. And Titans did draft Mike Martin to be their nose tackle a year after taking Casey but he didn't pan out. And I maybe haven't looked at closely enough at bust/success rate for smaller defensive lineman so these guys could be sort of outliers and teams just missed on these guys for other reasons.    
    • Also for retrospect on this list: Dan Marino--Mark Clayton & Jim Kelly--Andre Reed were snubbed.  Can you think of others that should be on here in place of someone else?
    • http://newarena.com/nfl/ranked-the-top-24-qb-wr-duos-of-all-time/7/?amxt=fbdesktop2   11. Peyton Manning/Reggie Wayne: Indianapolis Colts   In the post Marvin Harrison era, Wayne took the torch as being Manning’s go-to target. During his 14-year career with the Colts, Wayne had eight seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving. He also managed to haul in 82 touchdowns during this time period. Manning’s resume has been chronicled ad nauseam. He is the all-time leader in passing yards (71,940), and is consistently mentioned as one of the best to ever throw a football in the history of the sport.   2. Peyton Manning/Marvin Harrison: Indianapolis Colts   The respective skill-sets of Manning and Harrison worked perfectly with one another. Manning’s unbelievable timing on throws was predicated greatly by Harrison’s ability to separate in coverage. One of the best technical receivers in league history, Harrison’s route-running capabilities led him to become an 8-time Pro Bowler and a 3-time First-team All-Pro. He also led the league in receiving yards twice with Manning under center. 114 of Manning’s 539 touchdowns throws went to Harrison. This statistic is simply mind-boggling — and further validates a top-three standing.   ( Jerry Rice also got mentioned 2 times.  #3 with Steve Young, and #1 with Joe Montana.)
    • A passing league now. You could say the same of probably 10 other WRs in the league right now. Marv did it in a very different league.    Not taking away from it, he's a Pro Bowl player.
    • This is why you need a well rounded team.  No matter how good 1,2, or 5 players play, it takes an entire team to win games.  Every aspect of the team thrives or wither off the success AND failures of other aspects.

    •   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!
