Once again.

It.

Is.

Not.

A.

Complex.

Offense.

Sorry, that's straight out of Moore's mouth. Stampede Blue had a great article about it a few years ago. It's not complex, it's just all built on timing. The routes aren't hard, nor do they have anywhere near the number of routes of teams like NE and GB.

What other QB's have tried? It took Peyton a bit to master it, so you would have to give any other QB the same time, like a full season at least.

Anyone else see Herm Edwards say this on Audibles on ESPN?

Because you don't want to see Peyton ride off into the sunset and play for another team? If you care about the team over player, then getting Luck, getting him in and playing and addressing your QB needs for the next decade plus. I don't hear to many GB fans being upset now that GB traded Farve...

What Herm meant to say is that he'd draft the four new defensive starters we need..

and they would still not help with how much our defensive philosophy sucks

Okay we draft those four new defensive starters...how long do you think it will take those rookies to develop? A year or so at least...

The plays and routes are not complex. What is complex is getting the QB and WR on the same page. Making sure they both read the defense in the same way so they both know what route the WR will be running. It's not that the routes or plays are complex, but it's more read and react than most teams run.

The routes aren't hard, nor do they have anywhere near the number of routes of teams like NE and GB.

It's also built on being able to read defenses and knowing what play and audible Peyton is calling. From what I read a while back he is given a basic formation. Then based on the defense he has multiple plays that can be called - and then audibles from that play.

If you think it's easy to get all of that done in a few seconds and the make the right call every time I've got some land for sale in Florida.

The offense might be complex in itself, but running it isn't a piece of cake.

which is why its complex. if you dont know what read your suppose to make on the play your not gonna succeed in this offense and that takes a lot of time for both qb and wr to understand that and be on the same page

That's true Chad....WE should listen to him. :shh:

Well since he has done two things that I am willing to bet not one person on this forum has done, then yes his view carries a bit more weight then those here. Given he has played and coached, he knows a little bit more then we do.

If had what, like a week to learn it. HOw did Peyton do in his first game? Learning a system like the colts have and then actually doing it in a game takes time.

Anyway...trading away Peyton (if healthy) isn't the answer because we need him for the short term. I want him AND Luck (for the long run) if possible.

Also, if the Colts trade Manning, it would give me great pleasure to see him beat the Colts badly (yes, I'm a Peyton fan, not a Colts fan)

It's only complex from the perspective that more responsibility and burden is placed on the QB (rather than the OC) making not only the right playcall but also the right pre-snap read of the defense. Most Qbs get the play call from the OC and they have to read the defense to see which receiver is the likely target to be open. They're not trying to determine what play to call.

If the Colts coaches/FO continue to think that other QBs can do the same thing Peyton does at the line then that just furthers the argument that they need to go and bring in coaches who realize that most QBs are not going to be able to do the things at the LOS that Peyton does.

Therefore, if you simplify what the QB has to do at the LOS and put more of the burden on the OC, where most teams place that burden, then no the Colts offense is not all that complex.

maroon is a fun way to say it without getting bleeped and it's the "Bugs Bunny" way of saying it. They were using maroon on purpose..

Yeah I got it now. I figured it out when I went to type the other word and received a * icon in its place. Hence my Big Brother joke.

What if Peyton brings you more via a trade then the #1 pick? I mean according to some here Peyton is da man, so maybe Dallas and JJ who has money would hand over a boat load for Peyton with the thought he he gets us to the SB the next 2-3 seasons and I am a win now type of guy and then we begin the rebuild with Luck.

But we need a corner....a safety...a LB and a tackle...

..and I believe that Manning will be back (we're getting indications) this year..

..I dont think we can afford to draft a player who, in the best case scenario, will not play next year

hes had 5 games and 3 years to learn the offense and hes still missing the target like the bucs game where collie got open in the middle and instead of reading the play and making the throw early he takes a sack.

    • Ok, video is from earlier this year. Been floating around a while.   Everyone acts like the Colts never got any O-Line help. How many guys year after year did Grigson sign or draft? I'm not trying to stick up for Grigson because he was something else. HOWEVER, he did get guys in but unfortunately only 2 have solidified the line (Jack Mewhort and Ryan Kelly). Gosder Cherilus was very good for us until his knees started going out. Denzelle Good, Joe Haeg, and Le'raven Clark are all somewhat serviceable, just need help with technique. It's so hard to build an offensive line and that clearly shows. However, the fans are done waiting. I get it. But if you want a really good O-Line, then you have to pay $$$ for someone in free agency if they even choose the Colts over another team. Or you can draft O-Line in the 1st and 2nd rounds every year and see where that gets you. Obviously drafting in later rounds doesn't help our team.
    •   Probably they will take that chance and pass on a QB at 1.2 or 1.3. If Luck is done , you'll likely have another disaster in 2018 and draft a QB in 2019. If you draft Denard or Rosen , it's pretty tricky to trade them just before the season starts. It would mean not signing him and taking draft picks in 2019 or 2010 as compensation. Also your trading partners would be narrowed as most teams would have "solved" their QB issues.    Plus you would probably need to get to pick 2 in order to draft a QB that would have "tremendous trade value." It's not even a given that  Darnold is coming out. I really highly doubt you see the colts take a QB at pick 1.2 or 1.3 unless there is news that Luck could be done playing.
    • Actually, it can't be taken in different ways.  If a receiver's momentum takes him down to the ground while in the act of making a catch, that receiver has to maintain full possession of the ball through the entire process of going to the ground.  When the Pitt receiver hit the ground, he clearly bobbled the ball, losing grasp on the ball with the ball making contact with the ground out of his control.  He then regained control, but the damage was done, he never maintained control through the process.  No catch.    What my eyes saw is entirely in agreement with the call ... and while the announcers were seemingly dumbfounded about what was taking the reviewers so long, for he was clearly across the line with the ball, I pointed out to those that were watching the game with me, that they are reviewing whether or not he actually caught the ball, for you can clearly see that he does not maintain complete control of the ball while going to the ground, that he bobbles it, losing control as the ball hits the ground.  With the ball in his grasp when he hit the ground, had he NOT bobbled it, then the call would not have been reversed.  That fact that he bobbled it, though, meant that he had to regain control, but because it hit the ground out of his control, it is indisputably no catch, as the rule is written.
