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.

    • Fickle Charger fans might bolt [no pun intended there.] However, diehard San Diego fans aren't going anywhere. Losing Bosa isn't gonna jeopardize their shot at a new stadium either since even if Joey had showed up at the beginning of training camp & balled out; His presence alone wasn't gonna generate droves of revenue from the CA legislature courtesy of tax payer funds that residents approved of. Financing is usually generated by ownership, city council members, zoning committees; vendor appeal; & taxpayers who are convinced by elected officials in Congress that this new stadium structure will pull in money from hosting other events adding lucrative annual revenue directly into your state.    Yes, winning football teams make it easier to get land & financing faster for a new NFL home than a losing franchise sure, but the league understands all 32 teams need to thrive fiscally in order to make the shield more profitable both in the US & abroad.    Even with salary guidelines in place now based on the CBA & when a player was drafted, losing out on Bosa won't be that demoralizing to me because all scouting departments do rigorous workups, interviews, & 1 on 1 sessions with players they are interested in before & after the Combine so it's not they were blindly throwing darts at a board here. I don't feel sorry for San Diego at all. They pulled the trigger on Bosa, retracted their offer, & now get to eat their homework research failure. Life goes on. 
    • This is an owners thing,  not a players thing.   The things that the owners are asking for were not spelled out in the new CBA.   They're asking for the large bonus to be paid out nearly a year after being drafted.    AND,  they're also asking for the off-set language to go in their favor.       And since neither was addressed in the CBA,  both issues have to be negotiated by each team and player.       The owners are asking for both.     Most players are giving one or the other but not both.   Believe me,  this will be addressed in the next CBA.   This is not all Bosa.....  
    • Not for his majesty King Belichick and their prince Brady you are correct.
    • Maybe he shouldn't have gave an answer to the Bosa question but his answer wasn't wrong. 
    • I think you might play better than Butler did last year and what little I've seen of him this year He gave up a 117 passer rating when targeted in the slot last year.  He could never play outside. We need  an upgrade. I think we got what we could out of him.    I'm now getting frustrated with Smith. I thought he looked more comfortable vs Ravens and was hoping to see a little more this weekend. i was fine with limited action in the preseason but come he out again. I hope he's ready week 1.
