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.

    • Why even go to another team forum if all you bring is negativity to that team? You know it don't set well with the members of that forum but you do it anyway. It is done with the intent to rub members the wrong way. What does that say about the personality of that person? We have other words we would use for someone like that but really cant be said in this forum. Being concerned or objective is one thing while throwing insults is something else all together. What is the purpose or motive to do that in a teams forum when you know exactly the response you will get? Malice.
    • Regarding Bogie, I like him and we have had some excellent conversations about the history of Football and Basketball and I respect his knowledge. He can be his own worst enemy at times though as he never has anything positive to say about the Colts, puts down Grigs and Peyton quite a bit too. I mean this is a Colts website so I can see why he would rub people the wrong way. You should look at it from the standpoint as well.
    • Titans could win 6 or 7 games (I have them at 6) which would be a huge improvement from 2. Brock isnt going to be any worse than what Houston had, question is will he be much better. Even if he's a little better that could get them 10 wins. I dont see them beating us in Indy again though if Andrew is healthy. Regarding the Jags, there are several people in the media picking them to win the Division believe it or not.
    • I gave you like for that one mainly because if you have been on the Planet they deserve it. The way they rake Peyton and Andrew through the coals is beyond comical. I haven't been over there in a while but there was a couple of Broncos and a Colts fan over there and they actually tried to have a reasonable convo with those people and couldn't. They weren't even Trolling. I have read some of the Posters over there say Peyton isn't even a Top 10 QB of all-time and Andrew is a bust. Not very intelligent at all. I don't say that crap about Brady and he even cheated!
    • A lot also depends on how good Brock can be. I admit, I hated he went to Houston and I did like how Brock looked in some games last year. Brock is still a huge x factor in all of this as well. The funny thing is everyone ignores the Titans, would be sort of hilarious if they rose up and nobody saw it coming. I can't imagine they will though this soon.

    • Welcome jseg18!!!  We will pretend that you were not even close to being a Niner fan.   No, from Montana and then Young they were fun to watch.  I hope we all have fun this year.  I do not think the Colts are going to be 3rd in the South.....Have fun.  
    • Hello fellow COLTS fans! Well I've been a colts fan for about 15 years. I'm fairly young 25. I am from California. I was almost a 49er fan as I was player orientated. I liked Steve Young when I was a kid because my dads a 9iner fan. Then Peyton Manning happened. We then got Edgerrin James and my pride took off from there. Like most of you fans, I was miserable through those playoff losses to the patriots( dislike anything in Boston since I'm also a Lakers fan). Super Bowl 41 was great. I've been to all of the west coast games for past 10 years, and I've been to LOS once. I'm cut it short, but I'm excited for the 2016 season GO COLTS! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
