They really came hard at Vic with the traps. He's unselfish player rarely does he force things so he looked to pass. He trusts his guys to make plays. It was great to see Bogey have that kind of second half. He's had an impact on the series in other ways like checking Bron but he hadn't been shooting it great. That changed tonight I love the guys game. He's underrated as player. He's more then a 3pt shooter and he has been the Robin to Vic's Batman all year.
You hit it on the head this team does the dirty work to get W's. They have worked to turn weakness into strength. We struggled rebounding the ball and on D early in the year. We hang our hat on D now and hit the boards. That's putting in work. Myles is hitting the glass consistently huge step forward in his game.
That was a heck of a W but no time to celebrate. We have a quick turnaround which should be to our advantage. We have to get the game on Sunday. It'll be interesting to see what they try to do with Dipo in that one. I'm not sure they want to give him that look again. I think our biggest obstacle is to stay out of the officiating. I thought that almost got to us tonight. We are not getting many calls and we are going to take some terrible ones. That is the deal and complaining won't help It just takes energy and focus away from the game remind them Nate.
Oh.... Look! Over there!
There's a horse lying on the ground. I can't tell if it's breathing....
Here's a big stick.... why don't you go over there and beat it. Keep beating it until you think it's dead.
And then beat it somemore. That'll do it! Oh, and let's kick some too. That's always helpful.
What? You think it's dead? Well, who cares?!? Just beat it and kick it somemore anyway!
What? Are? The? Magic? Words?
Can't? We? Let? This? Go?!?
Well it's kind of hard for any receivers to make catches when the QB is getting pounded. The QB getting pounded on got more intense as the games progressed. Brissett's sack totals went up quite a bit in the 2nd halves of games.
If you honestly think this team was talented enough for any head coach to get wins with then I am at a loss for words.
IMO even Belichick would have been lucky to get 4 wins with the roster the Colts had last season.
I thought by the word "stuck" it was implied that I thought he was a lame duck coach who wasn't chosen by Ballard. But I also think he was a lame duck coach because he wasn't good enough.
If I had to make a list of the reasons for our 4-12 season in no particular order it would be
- bad roster to begin with
- Luck injured
- other injuries across the roster
- bad coaching and in game adjustments(I don't agree with you that Pagano didn't have the personnel to make the appropriate adjustments... going 100% run(not exaggerating, LITERALLY 100%) in sets with fewer than 3 receivers in the 4th Q is not about whether you have the personnel... it's about the playcalling... especially when you had great success throwing the ball with the exact same personnel earlier in the games... he just chose not to throw it and to run, run, run, run... until we lost.. )
- a lot of new personnel and no continuity...
- mistakes from young players(Mack, Brissett)
So yah, bad coaching and playcalling was just one part of it but it was part of it. I had no idea this one was even controversial ...
