Even Chuck Pagano was shaking his head

30 posts in this topic

There was a TV shot of Pagano in the press box as the clock ran down and he was by himself..slowly shaking his head...

He knows what he's seeing is unbelievable and virtually unprecedented....He knows more than any of us..

That one picture said it all...

...did anyone else see that?

He was shaking his head because someone asked him if the Texans are for real.

This season has been magical. Stats have been proven to be irrelevant by this team. They find ways to win week in and week out. Add Chuck' s illness to the mix and it's unbelievable. Bob Lamey discussed the season on this week's Colts Friday Night and said someone should write a book on this season. I sure hope somebody does.

i think he was shaking his head cause he couldn't believe we were throwing the ball at that point in the game. i know i couldn't believe it when i saw luck drop back. specially with ballard running the ball well to close the game. BA has some...well you know what.

I think he was shaking his head when BA called for a pass in the endzone on 3rd & 4 with about 4.30 left in gm at about the Titans 25yd line.

Ballard was hurt. If you're talking about the last throw of the game, complete to Reggie, that was the best play call of the game.

Just because a play has a WR stretching the D by having him run an endzone route doesn`t mean your knucklehead, inaccurate, Rookie QB should end up throwing to him. Ya, and Ballard was hurt!

The refs made a lot of...interesting choices. If the announcers are blatantly pointing it out, then there is something wrong.

That was his only option. There were no checkdowns or hot reads on that play. Every receiver was in or near the endzone. That was on Arians, not Luck. To call that play on a 3rd & FOUR with the lead, and an opportunity to extend the drive and seal the game with a conversion, was pure idiocy. Vintage Arians

absolutely...nothing about this season makes sense....we have 45 new guys on the roster?

we've allowed far more points than we've scored,,,our coach is in the hospital....we have defensive ends playing linebacker

..and we almost had no running backs left to finish the game..

..and we're about to go to the NFL playoffs....I have never seen anything like this

That's along the lines of what I thought..he's been in the NFL for what? 20 years?

He knows what we're doing is crazy

..and we keep doing it week after week....like a dog you let loose 10 miles from the house..and then 15 miles from the house

..and he keeps finding his way back..because he doesnt know he isnt supposed to find his way home

Not that I can recall. 2-14, with the #1 pick in the draft to knocking on the door of the playoffs. Not to mention the complete rehaul to the team and staff. Amazing!

wasn't the last play of the game a pass to dwayne allen over the middle for the first down?

You're right. I had my wires crossed. That's the play I'm talking about.

Yes, my wife and I both saw that and commented on it! Like he was thinking "who would have believed this?".

Clock had one minute or so - game over; a kneel down or so was all that remained. He was standing next to Grigs when he shook his head, smiled a bit, and gathered up his papers; Grigs was putting his suit coat on getting ready to head to the locker room.

BTW, I do find it interesting that (at a glance) nobody else who posted in this thread seemed to have seen it (which is fine) - but that didn't stop them from making up stuff, speculating and going off-topic! Such is an internet board ... :)

its all good. but as for the play call. it was great because of the payoff. it was high risk high reward. and if luck would have fumbled or thrown a int, the titans scored. most people in the forum would be calling for BA's head.

Kind of hard to say anything meaningful after the fact, but I agreed with the decision beforehand, and would have defended it even if it had gone wrong. If Luck had fumbled or thrown a pick, I would have blamed Luck, not the decision to throw for the first down.

I've been critical of Arians' game management at several points this season, including his pass/run mix in certain situations, but he handled the end of game situation exactly how I thought he should have. I think being without any healthy backs at the end of the game kind of put him in a situation that he would prefer to be in, since he loves to throw the ball anyways. But I think he nailed it on that play, and with the calls we used on the plays prior to that.

Well at least some of us saw it. Cause it was a pretty cool sight!

I think he was shaking his head at Chris Johnson's shoes. Did anyone see the red flashes coming from the bottom of his shoes? I think he had reflectors on the bottom. It looked like kids shoes that lite up when you walk. Anyone else notice this?

    • They just want to pass the hot potato to us so we go the playoffs and face New England instead since they got Foxboro'ed out this year already. Sigh.   Just kidding.   Honestly this is terrible news. Love watching this guy play but he has not looked "all there" this year so far either. I still won't count Houston out though since they still might play very hard this year and it could still be a strong divisional battle.   It's important that they let him fully heal though for his future too.     Some say he should not have played.......but star players play banged up a lot. I am sure Luck was out there banged up last year a few times early in the year too. I think Houston probably trusted the trainers/doctors and how JJ himself said he felt and he felt okay to go perhaps. Before the NE game, I heard Watt was increasing his activity levels anyway in practice. Stuff, happens.......   Sucks so many stars are already hurt this year, but hey the Vikings have made do without a few and sometimes others step up in place.
    • I just don't think Luck trusts all his WR's yet.  I said this a couple of weeks ago to my buddy that he is waiting for the WR to come out of his break before throwing, which takes longer and leads to more problems.  I think he has decent chemistry with T.Y. but it's nowhere near the level that Manning had with Harrison and Wayne yet.  Takes time to build.  I also think in some of the situations where Luck makes the "boneheaded INT" throw he is trying to anticipate the pattern and it goes awry, which leads him to want to wait for the WR to break going forward.  I think it just may take a LOT more practice time and some years with these guys to gain that trust to know when they will break so he can release it sooner and not have something bad happen.   This is year 5 for Luck and T.Y. but not for everyone else.
    • Lol.. He said "circus", but I can definitely see where you could hear the other thing. 
    • I think we could win 5 by the mid-break.  BUT until we do he aint right and he aint wrong.  Just unproven.  He's still a fargin icehole though.
    • Ill try to answer your questions the best I can based on what I see and my opinion. Keep in mind its in my opinion though so take it for what it is worth.   He trusts both his arm and his legs . It has nothing to do with his physical ability that he doesn't trust. Its all mental ability to have a clock in his head the second he hits his drop back spot 3-5-7 steps. I believe he should be able to scan through his first 2 reads in under 2.5 seconds. By the time you get to that 3rd read I think your pretty well going to be under pressure unless you have an elite O Line pass blocking wise or you have your QB out on the move   I think Chud can help him out more by giving him some throws that are easy for him to make early on the games. Particularly short throws to get him settled in. Sometimes guys are not getting separation though and I don't really think Lucks strength is to throw guys open right now much. I think he is still working on learning to throw guys open which really involves throwing the ball to an area and trusting the receiver will be there. Instead I think he waits for the receiver to run his route and if the receiver is not open at the break point then he hesitates instead of throwing it to an area and having the WR go get it.   Also from the looks of it he doesn't get hardly any plays called that allow for him to throw on the run. No QB Roll Outs really at all. He needs more help from Chud
