motivate the team by sending a message that the organization will tolerate poor effort (see Reitz, Butler, Castonzo, and 98% of the defense).  fire Pagano as he makes the decisions with what he has and fire Gibson as he provides this lackluster bunch of aging free agents......Luck is all we have and his window for a SB is closing fast

on that long drive reitz did good keeping Miller out of the backfield honestly but it's too long of a game to do that forever. Honestly we needed to keep running the ball and slow down the rush. Once we got predictable it was all over for Luck. I still think a healthy team we are better than them. Home field helps that defense get off the ball and also they got some crazy pi calls that were horrible. If we get healthy I think we can still make some noise.

We don't need to keep running the ball.

Jimmy tweets should not a pass here. He loves Chuck and Ryan. He should get the heat too.

Preston Smith. Was voted best under 25 player in the NFL

He had 8 sacks last year. Not exactly a huge impact, especially with offenses focusing their attention on Kerrigan.

I know Luck is a nice guy and all it but maybe if he just flips the hell out the O-Line, Pagano, Grigson and Irsay then it'll send a message.

This is just frustrating, to say the least. I will never not love this team but I'm so fed up with the way they lose.

He needs to be on the bench. But, no one else is seperating themselves, though.

And that's entirely on Ryan Grigson.  There's no excuse for having a guy who couldn't start anywhere else in the NFL in our starting lineup for several seasons in a row.

 

I know that Denver's ends are among the best in the game.  But Reitz wasn't just getting beat in a footrace, he was getting pushed backward like a WR trying to block a DT.

Colts lose today to the Denver Broncos 34-20, and head back to Indianapolis to regroup, and prepare for their next game  with the Chargers, who at the same time defeated the Jaguars 38-14.  Next Sunday will be San Diego's first visit in Indianapolis for a regular season game with the Colts in nearly six years.

 

I'm sure the Colts coaching and scouting staff and support team, lead by Head Coach Chuck Pagano and General Manager Ryan Grigson,  will review game tape, and make adjustments to their game plan this week.

Colts will try to earn a 2-1 record after Week 3 of the 2016 NFL regular season.

 

Enjoy your week in the meantime Colts fans, and we will meet again for another Colts NFL Gameday back at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building) next Sunday.  GO COLTS!   :)   :coltslogo:    :1colts:      :colts:  :coltshelmet:     :coltslogo:

    • I buy his change in attitude, it's refreshing.

      But my problems, or I guess my questions, with Pagano are more just about his actual coaching ability. He can change his ways all he wants but we'll see if he's actually able to coach this team up.
    • Part of it is the negative side of a zone blocking scheme.  With zone blocking the line is supposed to flow to the play side so that means a lot of times on even fronts there is a guy unblocked (I don't remember if the D was in an even front or an odd front on this play).  On the play mentioned by the OP (I think it was Turbin on the delay not Mack) without knowing the specifics, that could just as easily be on the QB and not the scheme.  The QB needs to be able to see uncovered defenders, he should have sent the TE in motion to that side.  If there is a defender not covered by the zone, you usually want him near the POA so that player gets caught up in the cluster as the oline flows to the play side.  That is why I think this is on the QB, he has got to know the blocking scheme well enough to identify the player that is not going to get caught up in (we call it the wave but that's because it's easier for 7th graders to understand a wave rather than a moving zone) the wave and adjust the formation accordingly.   It could also be the scheme which, if that's the case, then Philbin needs to be fired immediately.  You cannot develop a blocking scheme that leaves a defender on the LOS unblocked on a delay or misdirection type play, players in the NFL are too fast for that.
    • I'm buying that he is noticeably different in what he says. You can tell in his press conferences that he is vocally expecting more out of players than in previous seasons (atleast publicly). Time will tell if this mantra produces any changes.
    •   Yep, that is why I used the term 'mediocre' for Tolzien, that is why he is a backup and has a limited ceiling, IMO.   I also felt Chud did him no favors in the game vs Cowboys till a few drives later when he called for a few plays down the field (or maybe it took Tolzien a while to realize he had to look for those reads because typically wide outs are available at different levels for most plays called). What I did not like about Tolzien that he chose to run for the goal line twice vs the Steelers last year thinking he was Luck, he should know better not to do a QB scramble by the goal line, he is not as fast as he thinks he is.  
    • 5 Point Plan 1) Ask Ballard to sign me a couple of serviceable backup OL 2) Ask Ballard to sign a decent backup QB so I don't throw up every time my O comes off the field 3) Ask Ballard to sign me a veteran CB who can cover AND tackle 4) Pray 5) Polish up my resume
