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.

    • Actually, if I'm being totally honest here, I'd make NFL referees a permanent 12 month position with great benefits & a nice salary vs the temporary occupation it is now.    My reasoning is simple: If you compensate people well so that they can devote their entire time perfecting & improving their craft, they tend to excel at it & negate their mistakes over time.    Plus, with all the new rules/modifications that get tweaked every yr, it would be a wise move to validate to your referee crews that you value their attention to detail through their pocket book. When you pay people well, they strive to make their bosses look good. 
    • Pre-game & halftime interviews with both head coaches. Yeah I know, they are not an NFL rule per say unless you wanna count them as a CBA mandate to make themselves available to journalists during a game.    I just have never really gotten anything meaningful over these reporter/coach interactions. 90% of the remarks are tired cliches & even if you missed part of the game; nobody ever looks online to say hear what Erin Andrews asked a coach at halftime. 
    • I agree with taking away the taunting rule tool because it's just another version of smack talking live. If you wanna ban the throat slashing gesture, the pretend pistol firing gesture, or the archery firing motion fine; but everything else is fair game.   It's your job to shut your adversary up by scoring TDs or crippling their ground game on defense on 3rd down. And why is the league allowed to promote their shield & jerseys for profit but players can't engage in individual expressions of self promotion either? Seems highly hypocritical to me Mr. Commissioner. Just saying. 
    • I kind of agree with this reverting back I mean. This idea that both sides get an opportunity to touch the ball on offense is overrated to me. Yeah I know, the coin toss by a ref was given excessive weight to a random element of chance, but still. I liked it when the first score in OT even a FG could win the darn game. It was a rush man. The arbitrariness of it all in overtime so many things coaches had no control over: heads or tails on the toss, hearing what player captains declared on the field incorrectly before the toss itself; & life in general isn't fair anyway. Why should both teams get the ball in OT anyway? It gives almost voodoo magic mystique to how the coin lands.    Plus, a lot of players can get injured playing an extra quarter of football. They're tired, exhausted, & say a coach is on the hot seat by their owner & needs to make the playoffs to retain their job...And then wham the team looses their star WR or DB? Crap.    Not only that. Field Goals are crisp, clean, & the guys can get a shower faster & clean up sooner for post game interviews too.    Last but not least, one of the reasons I refuse to watch baseball is that the games take too long to finally conclude & the longer games play out the more it interferes with TV programming & sleeping habits of some fans too. Length isn't always an asset in broadcasting as producers or consumers overall. 
    •   That would be my pick too. I don't think any other team has underachieved as much in the past few years. They have questionmarks at LB, S, OL and HC, along with Rivers late game meltdowns but if Lynn proves out to be at least average coach, I think they are fairly serious threat. That's one stacked division they play in though and rough schedule.
