I'm worried this could be the beginning of the end. Everything is starting to look like the David Carr situation.

Except Luck has thrown 40 TD's and beaten Peyton Manning. I get what you are saying though, it's troubling times.

31 sacks on Luck so far this year, and he had 50 hits before this game to go with it.  Sigh.

What would you say the problem is?

I feel like he's getting really frustrated with the team around him.  He throws a TD to Moncrief and it gets called back because of a hold.  He makes a play and it gets called back because of a penalty.  He takes a snap and doesn't have time to scan the field before being sacked.  He's incredibly media-savvy, but it does look like he's getting very frustrated and his frustrations might boil over

"Might boil over" isn't  good enough we need it to happen now I hate how he tolerates that lack of effort by his oline and recievers

We need an overhaul. We need mean guys, bad guys, players with swag, players who only care about winning and nothing else, players with win at all cost mentality, players who'll try to take an opponents head off then taunt him. I'm tired of sissy players and a sissy team with a incompetent general manager and a stupid HC. We need to try to get Harbaugh outta Michigan at all cost. Sign Chandler Jones at all cost, sign Stephon Gilmore or the next best available CB, tank the season and get Garrett, and an ILB with coverage skills. Keep Walden. He's a mean player and he's starting to show something as a pass rusher, but keep him as a backup. He head butted Delanie Walker that time. That's what I'm talking about, no more sissy __ players. I feel like taking a baseball bat to my living room. This is unacceptable. We're the freaking Colts. Not the Browns or Jags or some other joke of a team. We have a franchise, elite QB and have had 5 years.....FIVE to build a solid roster and we're not in ONE BIT better shape than we were in year 2..... WE'RE IN WORSE SHAPE.  Grigson and Pagano should be ran out of town with pitchforks.

I just wish he would get rid of the ball faster. I could be wrong but does he hold the ball longer than most qbs? Seems like Peyton and Tom know where they want to go with the ball most plays before they even snap it. We just don't have the line to hold the ball and survey a field.

 

 

His receivers couldn't get separation all day.

I wish Luck was more like Brady with the offensive line. Every time Brady gets hit he screams at them and they respond well. We won't be anything until pass rush and offensive line is fixed.

Yes but Brady's OL is put in a position to succeed due to their play calling. Luck's isn't.

He does sometimes hold the ball too long but that was not the problem today. He was getting hit before he had the ball for 3 seconds.

Every time I get angry after a loss I just remember that this is exactly where I expected the Colts to be after 8 games. 3-5.

Especially when they are only rushing 3, just can't give him no time with 3 rushing and 8 covering.

Peyton ran such a simple offense yet it was almost impossible to defend once they changed the rules of defensive PI and illegal contact. Sometimes I just wonder if we are trying to do too much with these players. Luck included. He is a physical specimen and very very good but he isn't some football savant. We just don't have the players to execute what we are trying to do.

Yeah all 3 for me, I'm not a die hard Cubs fan at all but I'm pulling for them.  I don't really dislike the Indians though.  Tough weekend indeed!

It doesn't do anyone any good for him to tell the media how the roster is complete garbage, the coaching staff is in beyond their heads, the GM wouldn't know offensive line talent if it stood right in front of him, and the owner is happy with the people he has around him.  Everyone knows the problems, but it does no good to air it to the media

With the pathetic pass rush we have sometimes I wonder if we shouldn't do that too. Not like we are getting to the qb anyways.

I think a lot of it does have to do with play calling.  It's still a very PEP-like offense, they don't seem to change or adjust to the team they're playing.

As much as I hate the whole turmoil in the team thing. Maybe Irsay would actually take some notice. The fans have screamed and he signs the guys to new contracts. The media rakes Grigson over the coals and he says we easily could be 6-0, etc. Maybe if his franchise QB, the leader of our team, would say something, he might take notice..... then again he would probably just keep talking about how this is a long-term strategy, etc.

I'm a Bulls and Sox Fan. Glad to see the Cubbies go down in flames @ Wrigleyville. So 2 of the 3 outcomes were fine to me

I honestly think the OL will get better. It is so young...rookies that haven't had even a whole year of NFL experience. Last year they were playing against 18-20 year olds. Now they are playing elite grown men. Let them mature and get stronger...a lot stronger. Maybe just maybe we get a left tackle in FA and move Costonzo to RT or Clark developes next offseason. Haeg moves inside maybe? They are a long way from being good but man they have stepped in and played right away and that isn't fair of mid rd guys.

Pacers will get it together despite the tough start. I mean they don't have the roster depth to make a title run but they will get it together to the point that they are a top team in the East. Cubs are done. Colts are done.

As bad as we think the OL is the lack of pass rush and playmakers at lb are still a bigger problem for this team. That might just tell you how far away we are.

Irsay probably thinks we are like 7 and 0. With his comments how we could be undefeated it makes me wonder if he even watches the game up in his booth or just let's grigson and pagano tell him a complete fabrication.

 

Hes in his own world to put it mildly

I honestly didn't even watch the game because I have been on the road traveling, now in my hotel. I guess I didn't miss much. Lost 30-14. Once we lost that Houston game it kind of screwed us anyway. I see Brock and his boys beat the Lions as well. To the people that want us to lose and get a high Draft pick you may get your wish.

    • 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.
