I hope we play a very vanilla game on Sunday

42 posts in this topic

I understand that we need to play are starters and keep there timing but I would like us to play it like a preseason game. I don't care if we win or lose the game as long as we stay health.

Playing vanilla is a possiblity.  Health is the main goal.

 

 

 

I would give them vanilla, but I'd throw a lot of toppings at them too.

I'd give them some things that they haven't seen(and won't see in the playoffs), just to make them spend time addressing it. 

 

I'd have a wildcat set with Luck out wide. I wouldn't throw it to him, but I'd make them see it a few plays. 

I'd throw some new formations at them. Maybe some spread option, just enough twists to make them have to give it some thought.

 

Have to put some thoughts in the Ravens mind, that they won't have a chance of seeing next week.

I think we should go butter pecan, I don't think Arians or Pagano know what vanilla is. Our schemes are not basic in anyway. If your concerned that we might show our hand, well we've already done that through out the season.

Hmmm.....32 flavors?  You must be 'Baskin" in your ice cream glory!   :funny: (Not sure how many flavors Baskin Robbins has today....)

I'm not sure either.... The only thing I usually put on ice cream is the chocolate(like dipping a cone), but I wouldn't show them anything new I wanted to use, only some new things that I had no intentions of using.

I don't agree and I'm sure Pagano and Arians don't do either, there going all out to win this game and get some momentum going into the playoffs. Alot of good it did resting our players with the weak coach we had before, Pagano has already stated he's going to play the players that are healthy because he doesn't want to lose this game, he said we don't lay down for anybody no matter what the situation is, and I totally agree with him!

We could see if Tebow was willing to run the wildcat for us, get him some experience of the AFC south for next year :P though that Jets bench must be pretty cold this time of year.

Raspberry sauce for me please.

Playing a vanilla game is great as long as the additives are included!

Depends what additives, we don't want to lose anyone to substance abuse misdemeanours. That coffee ice cream can have a real kick you know.

I vote FJC as OC if Arians leaves us for a HC Job :lol:

What you are saying is absolutely NO Trans Fats!  They KILL a good running game, and have been know to 'stymie' long drives.  :)

This game would be a great opportunity to try out an uptempo, no huddle offense, and see what it produces.

This. We need this to become effective any time we want to run it.

Yeah I've been around a couple that thought like that too.

 

Throw out the Emory & Henry formation of Spurrier's in a big game just to get a team to burn a timeout... Little things to try to capitalize on something.

If they don't burn the time out, have your QB sneak it or run a quick dive.... or a quick bubble screen to one of the Wide guys depending on the # games out there.

If he cant start ahead of Luck, he probably cant be bothered..

But call his agent Skip Bayless....maybe he can work something out

Can't you get a Colts styled ice cream in central Indiana?

Edys ice cream used to have a Colts flavor,  don't think they have for a few years now,  will have to recheck at the store this week.

Sprinkles for our vanilla ice cream:

The no huddle punt.  

Luck singing the national anthem.  

Linkenbach spread out (the only position he hasn't played).  

Luck throwing 12 consecutive 3 yard curls...no wait a minute, that's the Pats game plan Sunday.

Invite Peyton to speak to our guys before the game.

When Foster gets the ball, don't touch him..no, that was last game.....try and tackle him this game.

Tell Watts the Pro Bowl is this weekend and to meet everyone at the airport pronto.

 

Btw, I like Pistachio.

    • It makes no difference to me, other than stuff to laugh at.  I was doing the same thing last year when they picked the Colts to go to the Superbowl.  I knew they weren't ready, I just didn't expect Luck to go down.  All this nonsense is just to fill time on a 24-hour NFL Network.  They have to talk about SOMETHING.  Has NO effect on the playing field whatsoever.
    • Yeah, my wife would agree with you. She wants to move to Gulf Shores Alabama. We vacation there from time to time. 
    • I am not sure Whitner would be beaten out by Geathers... Whitner has a solid career of playing at a high level.. Geathers has been a fill in and for me was our biggest single question mark in the secondary this year;  We'd be MUCH improved with Whitner on board and let the best player start.  I wouldn't count Whitner out on that battle.  
    • Fact: Castonzo was lousy last year by his own admission.   Fact: We have a rookie Center who hasn't had a single live practice yet.  How often do people talk about the reality that you can't really learn much from OTA's and No Pad Practices?  Fact: We had Reitz last year as well as Mewhort (one of my favorite players) but the line was still lousy anyway. Fact: Thornton has not performed to date and is injury prone.  And to even mention Harrison's name PROVES we are in deep trouble if he EVER sees the field again as a starter on the O Line because he was by far the worst player on our team who saw action last year on the O-Line.     Look, everyone could play amazingly and we could have the best line in NFL history.  But history suggests if 4 of the 5 starters come back from last year's terrible performing bunch AND the fifth is a rookie who hasn't played a down or even had a padded practice yet, it is hard to suggest we are improved over last year.  There is no evidence let alone proof.  You guys are all hoping these guys outperform what they did last year.  That's fine, but it means nothing until and unless they do it.  Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results.   This is closer to that than a major upgrade to our O-Line.  I would have expected 3 new superior starters at C, RG and RT as compared to who started last year with a solid back up option at LT if Castonzo fails again this year.  THAT would be clear cut improvement.     Of course we all want the O-Line to play better.  I hope that Clark impresses and moves into a starting spot alongside Kelly who also impresses and kicks but.  THAT would be a start.  I also know a lot about Reitz.  He went to my high school and I am a fan.  But he's getting older and until recently was seen as depth, not starting level talent.  Reading about Kelly and all the accolades leaves me asking "based on what?" We'll learn a little during training camp and Pre-Season, but the truth will really only come in live action against Detroit.  It's just as legit to question whether we've improved as it is to say we have in fact already done so.  Let's have some hard evidence before saying "problem solved."
