that didnt cost us the game.  they were in field goal range with time to spare.  that time out really didnt matter

It absolutely did matter. They dont get 5 plays off if theres only 15 seconds on the clock. Even if everything played out as it did just with less time, they're kicking a 55+ yard FG. The other issue is that the Colts didnt use the best kicker in the league to pooch it down inside the 15 on that kickoff. No reason to take the touchback when you're kicking from the 50. 

 

Really bad coaching down the stretch. Really bad.

I say we trade whatever it takes to move up for Myles Garrett. I cant stand this crap man. We have to bring in some superstar players on defense. Throw some money at some big time players this offseason. If they're not tagged and we bring in Chandler Jones, Jamie Collins, Stephon Gilmore, and Myles Garrett on defense....We wont be suffering through this kinda crap anymore. And get rid of bums like Cole, DQ, Jones probably, Butler, etc.

Cole had our only sack today.......

Smith didn't get that much. We could have mad it work. I mean all offseason everyone knew we needed a couple freak EDGE rushers and a CB to pair with Davis. What do we do???? Sign Robinson who's a solid number 3.nickle, but a great team needs a better number 2 corner. Then we literally did NOTHING to fix the pass rush.

We gave Robinson a 3yr/13.5m deal, while Smith got 4yr/38m & Jenkins got 5yr/62.5m. Those are both way out of our budget and would've made it tough to fill holes are injuries pop up. I agree with the pass rush. I was hoping to get a talented EDGE rusher in the draft, but I think Maggit and some of the other rookies could develop into very good players.

We'll have plenty to spend this coming offseason. Even if Maggitt has a promising rookie year we need to bring in one of Chandler Jones or Melvin Ingram, and draft a OLB early as well. Or sign Demarcus Ware to go along with Jones/Ingram. Chandler Jones and a 1st round EDGE rusher to go along with Mathis, and maybe Maggitt would take care of the issue. I would literally draft like 3 EDGE rushers in the first 5 rounds next year.

Honestly it's better to be on offense on the last 2 minutes than defense. Look at all the examples over the recent years.

I doubt we'd be able to afford either of them, let alone both of them (if their respective teams even let them test the waters). Ware is old and would want more money than he's currently receiving, based on his past few year in Denver vs his last few in Dallas, if he even wants to leave Denver. Pass rushers are best acquired via the draft and I don't disagree that 2-3 in the first 5 rds would help.

Someone has to get pressure up the middle of our defense. We also need to create turnovers. You can only coach so much. I'll say it again that it's up to the players. As guys return our defense will get better. I'm not upset about the results of this game.

    • What is the title of your book?  
    • No true edge rusher. We need one.
    • That's like DEEP black.......if Ballard isn't blowing smoke about what he looks for in DB's.
    •   This is not a prediction of who will be taken in the first round.     If I was predicting,  I'd have Mahomes on my list.    I think he'll be taken in the first.    But he's not a 1st round talent for me.     Conley was on my list right up until about noon today.   These are my top-32 players,  for what little it's worth.     1.   Myles Garrett         DE        Texas A&M   Note:    Easiest pick of the list!   2.   Jamaal Adams       SS        LSU   Note:         Top-5 tape,  but not top-5 athlete   3.   Solomon Thomas     DE      Stanford   Note:       Football infant, just starting to play the game.    High ceiling   4.    Jonathan Allen          DT       Alabama   Note:    See Jamaal Adams;    Great tape,  but did not test like a premium athlete   5.    Leonard Fournette       RB       LSU   Note:     Runaway freight train.    Main worry is health;  often gets nicked up.   6.    Marshawn Lattimore      CB       Ohio State   Note:     Raw,  still learning.   Great physical tools and skills at a premium position.   High ceiling   7.    Ruben Foster                 ILB        Alabama   Note:      Character red flags galore,  but he's all over the field impacting every game   8.    Malik Hooker                  FS         Ohio St.   Note:   Another one-year wonder;  but plays center field and finds the football like Ed Reed   9.   Corey Davis                    WR       West Michigan    Note:  High ankle sprain has sidelined Davis during scouting season.   But those that I read/hear prefer Davis to Williams   10.    OJ Howard               TE          Alabama   Note:    Under-utilized in college,  but great physical tools   11.   Derek Barnett             DE/OLB      Tennessee   Note:     Three years of high level play in the SEC speaks for itself   12.     Christian McCaffrey        RB        Stanford   Note:    If used properly,  then he's a match-up nightmare.    If not,  could be disappointment.   Top flight WR skills plus return skills complete the package   13.     DeSean Watson             QB        Clemson   Note:   Winner.    Leader.     Competitor.     Needs a year (or more) of NFL polishing, but so do all QB's in this class.   14.    Haason Reddick              LB         Temple   Note:    Has anyone come farther, faster?     Can play outside or inside?    What do want/need?   15.     Forrest Lamp                    G          Western Kentucky   Note:   4-year starter, mostly at LT with short arms.     Will kick inside much like ND's Zack Martin.     Not often a guard is top OL in a class.   16.     Charles Harris                  OLB/DE        Missouri   Note:  Said to be a top-20 player on a number of boards including Chris Ballard.   17.     Mike Williams                      WR            Clemson   Note:   Not a good rout runner,  but great when the ball is in the air.    Great size.   18.    David Njoku                          TE             Miami   Note:    A late bloomer with surprising NFL skill set.   More split TE than in-line blocker   19.     Takk McKinley                      OLB           UCLA   Note:    Raw, but great attitude and tools.    Often compared to someone named......   Mathis   20.    Ryan Ramczyk                        OT          Wisconson   Note:    One year at Wisconsin playing at lower division school.   But did well for Wisconsin who know how to turn out OL's   21.     TreDavius White                   CB           LSU   Note:    Another multi-year starter from LSU     Highly competitive press corner   22.       Jarrod Davis                      ILB/OLB       Florida   Note:    Can play inside and out,  though most seem to see a man in the middle   23.     Mitch Trubisky                         QB           N. Carolina   Note:     Might be the best QB out of this class,  but I just can't get past only 13 starts when NFL teams really want twice that   24.      Dalvin Cook                             RB         Florida St.   Note:    Character red flags off the field,  fumbling and injuries on the field are keeping a once-top-10 talent much lower   25.     Cam Robinson                         OT           Alabama   Note:   Likely no more than average Left Tackle,  but might be a very good Right Tackle   26.     Marlon Humphreys                  CB           Alabama   Note:   The latest corner out of the Tide factory.    Great physical skills,  but very poor skills when the ball is in the air.   27.     Taco Charlton                          DE/OLB/DT       Michigan   Note:    One year of good production and did not test as well as expected gives some concern   28.    John Ross                                  WR                  Washington   Note:   4.22 is his calling card.     But two surgeries and a small frame worry scouts   29.    Kevin King                                  CB              Washington   Note:   6'3" frame and 32" arms and tested much better than expected.   Has forced scouts to reconsider what King can be   30.    Garrett Bolles                             OT                Utah   Note:   Smallish Zone Left Tackle with good feet,  but he's also 25 as a rookie.   31.      Quincy Wilson                         CB                  Florida   Note:   Zone or off-ball corner with great size   32.      Julius Peppers                          SS                Michigan   Note:   His diluted test not with standing,  he's great great talent and is considered a leader on the field.    With NFL coaching should settle into Safety plus returns skills.
