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.

    •   Fair points.....   I remember right after last year's draft,  Grigson came out and said both Green and Clark were borderline 1st rounders for them.      I was more than just a bit surprised.   And then he said that Haeg had a 2nd round grade.      And I think Ridgeway had a 2nd round grade too.   Josh Ferguson was said to have roughly a 4th round grade and they crossed their fingers that he'd be available in Free Agency.   I thought if this draft hits,  then they have some credibility....    but if it misses,  this staff is likely done....   The jury remains out until we see how everyone else besides Kelly turns out....  
    •   I'm expecting a much better Josh Ferguson this time around.    I expect to see at least the normal jump from rookie year to 2nd year that most players make.   If not,  that will be that....   But, I'm rooting for the guy....  
    • It's kinda funny, a lot of people take extreme stances on where players will be drafted, but it's situations like this that cause players to be overdrafted (IMO), and others to fall to us that really shouldn't. Then the forum gets shocked come draft time when said player reaches our pick in the 2nd or 3rd or whatever pick it is. It happens every year and will always happen, that's why I'm a little loose when doing mocks and judging mocks. Just something I'm thinking about, lol.
    •   I wouldn't want the Colts to take him at 15....    but if I was sitting in the bottom quarter of the first round and I needed help in the secondary,  he'd get serious consideration from me.   And it's not just the Combine....   Melifownu also had a very good Senior Bowl week as well....    his story is similar to Reddick and his story is similar to Jones,  another UConn DB from a few years back who broke a couple of jumping records at the combine and Dallas took him toward the bottom of the 1st.   I don't think they've regretted that decision.  
    • Someone should do another one of these since free agency is really slowed Down now.
