When is the last time the Colts have converted short yardage plays via running the ball?

 

The Colts don't have the line to do that. Allen was open. The D just made a great play. 

The Colts have converted every 3rd and short they've tried this year with Turbin at fullback. And Allen was open but he shut down his route to try and make a safe catch but allowe the defense to make a play. If he continues towards the sideline like he was Luck leads him to an easy first down...

I love Colts, but however much I'm rooting for this team it is hard to believe this is a Playoffs caliber team.

Insert gratuitous " Playoffs?! Don't talk about playoffs! Are you kidding me? Playoffs?! I'm just hoping we can win a game, another game! " LOL

I love my Colts no matter how much hell I give them. Being a native of Indiana it's just in my blood!

But if I were Andrew Luck with this coaching staff, I would want to get as far away from Indianapolis as I could! 

Luck is a good soldier. Never make waves or say anything to anyone to tee them off. He's a company man. He don't even have a smart phone, still uses a flip phone so he won't say something someone won't like on social media.

And that IS NOT A GOOD THING! He needs to be a leader and criticise people who need criticising.

The only thing I am concerned about now is New England winning another Super Bowl!

 

They appear to be capable of winning it all and that would be more painful to me than the Colts not making the playoffs!

I love the Colts but this is awful. There is a horrible scheme issue here,.Ever wonder why we have a ton of injuries every year? It's not bad luck. Maybe one year. But since this bunch has been running the show. We get out game planned by everyone we play. Then depend on Luck to try to save the day. For this team to be any good it needs to be laying out points, With a sped up offense that lives off of play action. I have been a fan from the Baltimore days and this reminds me of Frank Kush and Rod Dowdower. I didn't think it could get worse than that but it's heading that way.

Can't block anyone.  Can't stop anyone.  Poorly coached team - stupid penalties.  Came out flat once again with all the drops. 

 

People scoffed at this notion during the offseason, but this is the worst team in the division.  If you subtract the QB, it's not even close.  Subtract the QB and this might be the worst team in football.

Right now they look capable of winning another SB even with tied shoelaces.

Another slow start on offense.  IMO, that's ALL on the coaching staff - clearly they don't have the players prepared or an effective gameplan from the start.

I honestly think they've hurt his development.  He has the talent, but it's not there consistently enough.  I put that on the coaching staff for not being able to get that out of him

Yeah I think they dumbed him down AND he needed coaching up. Not the biggest football I.Q.

Can we cut dewayne Allen now. Enough is enough. Cutting Fleener and keeping this worthless TE just killed us, again..

Bring in some new bloods with brains. This team is beyond salvage.  The new coach wil plan for 2017 draft and mold it to winners.

There is really no difference between what we're seeing this year and what we saw in Luck's first three years.  During those seasons, they pulled out games like the Detroit game.  They pulled out a game like today's.  But when you are winning with smoke and mirrors, at some point your luck runs out. You can't consistently win like that. 

 

This was a bad team during Luck's first three years.  It's a bad team now.

Settle-In...The Grigson and Pagano incompetence is in play for the next "4" seasons. Given 4 year contacts after a losing season. Defend them all you want, a young team needs good management and coaching and we do not have it. This team has to play sand-lot from behind to get a win, showing the player-talent is there but little coaching-talent and play calling on the sideline. I've been a season ticket holder since 1995 and this has the look of same coaching incompetence we saw prior to and following Dungy, players carrying poor play calling coachs. If Bruce Arians was in place with a different GM, things would be different, we would be winning.

Can someone please explain something to me. Why was the first timeout of the second half wasted? I wish I had the game recorded so I could rewind and watch again. Unless I'm mistaken, the first time out of the second half was called late in the game (before the two minute warning) on a dead play when the clock was not running. At that stage in the game, time was already a crucial factor. Why was this time out squandered? Am I missing something? It did not appear to be an injury time out. The first time out just kind of disappeared and we desperately needed it in the end.

Sad loss by our Colts as they lose, and came up short in the scoreboard , and gave their Jaguars their first win of the season 30-27.  The result as both teams leave Great Britain for their bye week with identical records of 1-3.

 

Colts will regroup and rest from the long plane ride and trip back to Indianapolis from London, England, then prepare their next game as the Chicago Bears travel down Interstate 65 across Indiana to play the Colts in Indiana next Sunday afternoon.

 

Enjoy  yourselves and we will see you here back on the Colts Game Day Forum, as Coach Pagano, Andrew Luck, and the rest of the Colts try to win their remaining games in 2016, and continue to qualify in the hunt for the NFL Playoffs.

                                                                  Thanks to all of you for participating in the Colts  Game Day Forum. Let's have the mindset for the Colts to win more  games the rest of this season, and GO COLTS!!!!!   :coltslogo:    :coltshelmet:   :colts:  :coltslogo:

    • Keep in mind too, the more wins from here on out, will only increase the odds keeping Pagano.         
    • I watch them a bit. I can certainly concede that Hill is the most talented of the three and may be better than I gave him credit for in my post...   Hunt is not that great, imo. He has had a very good season, especially for a rookie, but I think he has overachieved quite a bit. He doesn't have the elite power/speed combo of guys like Fournette or Zeke. I think he's an average (or slightly above) running back in a very good situation. I don't think he would be rated so highly if he ran for Cleveland or Indy.   Just my opinion, though. I'm not married to it, either... I'm sure I've made many foolish statements about young players in the past.    I was just trying to illustrate that the OC in KC (is his name Nagy?) is part of an offense that is playing better than the sum of its parts. How much of that can be attributed to him and how much is Andy Reid is a fair question, though. New HC candidates are always a gamble, though. 
    • Whichever NFC team that has the best interior pass rush will have the best chance to beat the Pats.  It's their Achilles heel.  
    •   I am NOT a fan of tanking.   I argued on behalf of trying to win the last two games of both the 15 and 16 seasons.    The argument was we had a chance to go 8-8 so you absolutely try to win those games.     5 straight seasons without a losing season is a good achievement for any franchise.   But now that we are overwhelmingly likely to finish below 500,  then I feel free to say that while I don't want us to tank,  I will not be upset with any loss.     Even if we lose them all.      I know this is a nuanced position,   but I won't be upset with any losses in the last six games.   All that said....   We stand a decent chance to win a number of these games.     Only the J'Ville game feels like a likely loss.   The other five feels like we've got a decent shot at each.   We should be competitive in those five games.    So, we might surprise to the upside and win more than we might expect.     The team is playing better.   By group,  the defense is getting better,   the special teams are solid,  and even the offense is a little more cohesive and efficeint.     And each unit might get a little better down the stretch.   We might surprise a lot of people,  including ourselves.
