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.

He was still trying to figure out how the refs blew the call on the Luck INT.

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?

    • Jaguars look scary for the future
      AGREE! No more cake walks, probably a good thing. In the past we ran into a "good" team and got humbled.
    • Our next great pass rusher
      It sure seems that way. I generally dosappeared last year around this time.
    • 2015-2016 Indiana Pacers (And rest of the NBA) Season
      I'd offered Conley a max deal.. He could transform us A natural lead guard wan score but doesn't have to. No to Rondo......He's had problems fitting in everywhere...   I'd sign Pau Gasol if he would come here for a couple of years. Let Myles play forward  
    • Who Are The Colts 21 Undrafted Free Agents?
      Josh Ferguson.... I am excited to see him play alongside Frank Gore. I hope he takes this chance with humility and laser focus to his learning.
    • The New AFC South
      I just thought it was hilarious over draft weekend how I heard analysts say that given all the picks Tennessee got  & the A+ grade most pundits gave Jacksonville that the AFC South just got transformed into the AFC West meaning our division just became much more competitive.    I don't buy that take at all. Jags have a good defense sure, but they have no idea how to close out games. Murray played awful last season in Philly & age is starting to catch up with him. Houston is my biggest question mark. Their defense is solid & Brock shows flashes of brilliance but can Bill O'Brian turn the OZ into a poor man's Tom Brady? That's asking a lot. I like Brock & part of me would enjoy a good Brock vs Chewbacca rivalry if it develops into that. I need to see how OZ handles the pressure of being the man in Houston though.    Yeah I know his name is Osweiler. I just like calling him OZ for short since like the Wizard of OZ the Texans have been looking for a miracle at QB for a very long time.
