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

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.

    • Not meant as a slight against DR88 at all, but your reply was pretty darn funny SDS.    I like when 1 of our best comedic regulars slides in a gem like this during a thought provoking discussion. 
    • good news and then next week we get art jones back. 
    • Colts 31 Jaguars 20   Bortles is the king of garbage TDs, so he will get one more to get 2 TDs in the game towards the end.
    • I'd lean towards Dwayne Washington given that he will get the between-the-tackles load while Riddick gets passing targets. Because it is the Bears, I feel the Lions will get to a lead and play with a lead, which would mean more runs for the Lions, that is my logic. But then, the Rams could also be playing from behind making Tavon Austin a good play as well. It has to be between those 2.    
    • Slightly off topic, but it fits under possible rule changes in the NFL. I wish the NFL rules committee would modify the roughing the passer penalty & face mask penalty a little bit.    I'm not advocating for late hits, or pile driving a QB, or even head hunting. Just that incidental contact that brushes a face mask really isn't worth 15 yards every time.    I'm not trying to change the topic here at all. Just give LBs, DEs, & safeties a break sometimes refs.

    • 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.
