For the Record: 7 Drops Yesterday....

52 posts in this topic

I never said it was a drop, i said it was a ball that should be caught and wasn't. Official drops only count for perfect on target throws, they do not count a drop on a ball that is not caught and not perfectly on target. That does not always mean though that the receiver shouldn't have made the catch.

Your claim that he never touched the ball is dead wrong. He was one on one with a linebacker down the sideline being faceguarged. Luck put the ball toward his backshoulder and a little short, Fleener went up and had both hands on the ball and then lost it. Difficult catch, sure. A catch that a 6 foot 6 athletic receiving tightend needs to make, absolutely. And this isn't a thread to just pick on Fleener, it's just a point that in general our receivers dont really make many difficult catches outside of Reggie. Luck has not always had much help.

I didn't take it as a knock on Fleener and YES I will agree with you we were talking about two different plays. I was referring to the first play of the game but I actually forgot about the play you are talking about. As I stated I stand corrected...

Ballard didn`t drop that last pass either. It was wide right.Anyone covering for Luck and all his off target passes is Off target. He has thrown behing his receivers CONSTANTLY All- Season Long. His release is too slow, his arm strength must improve, and he MUST anticipate better.His receivers get the ball to late and are contested too often. So lets see what he can do.

That's what the NFL says....   seven.   and six of those were on 3rd or 4th down.

 

We also totaled up more than 400 yards of offense...   and 25 first downs while holding the ball for roughly 37 minutes.

Too bad we didn't punch it in....    I don't blame Christensen.

 

All things considered,   I thought we did pretty well yesterday...

 

Now,  on to what should be a very, very interesting off-season.......

I blame Christensen for everybody and their mother knowing we were running the ball on second down. It was just a given.

Also, Satele is a man much bigger than me, but if I ever see that head-bob again I will fight him.

With these two things combined, all the Ravens D had to do on second down was wait for the head-bob and now they know the snap count and that it's a run.

I suppose Avery is getting a pass for his dropped 3rd down pass too then?

The ball was thrown wide right. But ask yourself, what was the intended route? It was a short distance play, and Ballard looked like he was asked to run an "out route" and he cut the corner and rounded out his pattern. Luck threw the ball as an out, but Ballard drifted up the field, thus the throw was wide right. Had ballard run a crisp out route as he was supposed to, it would have been complete. To me, the throw was on target-- the route was not precise.

Sure when you throw in logic and sense into the argument that sounds good.

But wouldn't it be easier, and frankly make you feel better, if we just blamed it on the QB always?

Just get rid of the guy. He's terrible!! I must have been watching the wrong guy all year. Who was that guy that hit Ballard in stride and he dropped it?

no one on this forum knows what a rout was supposed to be. it could be anything, bad rout, bad wr read, bad qb read, or something else.

But you're okay with blaming it on Luck?

i don't believe a said it was lucks fault. i said it could be any number of reasons, most of them no one here has any idea of where the fault lies. only the players and coaches would know.

    • As a Colts Homer Lovin the Blue  & Bricklayer Caveman I'm not exactly a great analyst for me did a lineman let my QB get smacked did they give him a good pocket ? & Time to get rid of the ball ? the game moves fast & my mind not so much its easy to over look things .   You get so used to complaining about the O-line sometimes you miss when there actually doing okay its a team sport , 12 sometimes just holds onto the ball to long for various reasons ,     Most here are smarter than me when it comes to football I never played any other than jail house rules tackle in the streets in L.a were the curbs were the out of bounds as a kid .    I was just reading this & going over the numbers it made me think 3 games into the season while I & many here are still complaining about the line they may be better than we fans give them credit for so I'd love to hear what others think about this ...   http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/ol   I enjoy learning more about my team I only have Eyes for the Blue so if any would give me there opinions it would be greatly appreciated .                                    Thank You yours truly Capt Caveman   
    • It was against San Fran it was when Mora said PLAYOFFS. 
    • Was that in San Diego? I remember we had no WR's, and he threw 5 or 6 picks, and yet AV had a easy FG to win it but he missed. Or am I dreaming that?
    • Yeah and definitely a different personality and Luck is not good with the media. He feels very uncomfortable dealing with them.  
    • Getting Langford and Anderson back to 100pc fitness will be huge. They are excellent run stoppers at the DE position, we definitely would have beaten the Lions had we Anderson and had Langford not returning from injury. They are very important parts of our defense I think.

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
