Did anybody see D. Allen's dig on the Colts.....

First....     Swoope and Allen DON'T play the same position.      Not even close.     So, I don't know why you're comparing the two.     But you don't like Allen, so it's obvious why you're comparing the two.

 

Second....     Bill Belichick thinks more of Allen than you and others here.      Call me funny,   but I think I'll trust his judgement of Allen more than I trust the fan base here.

 

 

 

However semantics goes it, a team's starting TE having only ~110 more catching yards a season compared to the 3rd stringer who is a converted basketball player is horrible by all means.

 

Imagine Gronkowski only catching 100-200 more yards a year than Michael Hoomanuwanui.

 

With that being said, I love DA as an individual, same with Josh McNary, Pat Angerer, and Zach Kerr; they just aren't performing and were getting beat out by folks much less heralded.

No where in that quote did he mention the Colts or slam them. It's usual optimistic talk of any player going to a new team.

 

But since he plays for the Patriots, I'm sure it's really all a slam on the Colts and one has to read between the lines to see the conspiracy at hand. Name it and claim it.

No,  it's not.     And it explains just how much you don't know about football.

 

But,  you're entitled to your opinion,  no matter how ill-informed it is.

 

Good luck.

I side w Allen slightly, our offense looks primitive at points ... Andrew Luck runs a 4.6 40, 'supposedly' one of the most cerebral to play the position & still hasn't been given the reigns. If we don't incorporate some quick hitting patterns & just show ability to stress a defense horizontally as well as vertically (less of this wrks for me) Idk what to think anymore.

 

long story short ... ughhhh Chud get it together 

I guess having one of the top offenses in the league just goes unnoticed by you?

I know we had one of the top passing Offenses in the league and Allen still stunk. He had 1 great game that was at NY and the Jets laid over in that game. Regarding the main topic, I don't have any problem what he said but I just don't think he is that good of a player. Doyle is better.

Standards as a fan? I have been a Colt fan since 1973. I have more than likely been through a lot more with this team than you can imagine.

ok lol I never challenged your allegiance, the Browns have fans too

 

... yu think our offense is acceptable when it's clearly flawed schematically ... we barely score on the Patriots & Steelers while teams like the Jags & Texans dictate to us

 As far as the patriots and the Steelers are concerned those teams do that on a regular basis.

As far as the Jags and Texans they are better teams than in the past and know the Colts well because of division.

Scoring is not the main problem with this team. Slow starts? Yes, but this offense has to deal with this teams defense.

Drops the mic.   :hat:   :D

Wait, your blaming your TE because your O coordinator was so dumb he had him Blocking one of the best pass rushers in the NFL!? That's on your O coordinator.

 

as for the dropped pass on 4th and 1 against the Jags.. ok you needed a 4th and 1 catch beat the JAGS!!!  Mind you drops will get him less looks here but blaming him for a loss that should have been easy is just silly!

He isn't very good, thanks for taking him off our hands. You will see what I am talking about by week 4 or 5. I like Doyle better so I would rather have the Draft pick the Pats gave us.

so when this team goes 3&out on multiple drives en a row who's that on ... our defense needs major improvement but as the supposed 'strength' of the team how about sustaining a drive or two to help the weakest link ... I can tell by how you're ok w certain circumstances, mediocre sits well w yu.

 

none of which we've been subjected to for the last 4/5 years is that of a winning culture. Hence why these decisions Chris Ballard have been making are so predictable.

Also @jimjaime, I agree the Jags should be an easy win but so should the Dolphins for you guys and the Dolphins beat you twice late in the season that cost you HFA. It's called a Divisional opponent playing you tough because they are in your Division. The Pats had no business losing to the Dolphins in 2015 and it cost them the SB IMO because it gave Denver HFA, it happened in 2013 as well. Dolphins weren't any good in 2013 or 2015.

I don't feel the need to explain anything thing to you. You start off by telling me what I feel and that makes you null and void.

Big talk for a guy that dropped the football on some crucial plays...

 

Good football player, but it not like he made a case for himself being non-expendable...

You guys know what's going to happen right?  Dwayne Allen will now be catching UNDER-INFLATED footballs, and will therefore, catch everything TB throws to him.

 

Another former Jedi turns to the Dark Side.

I took this to mean he felt he was under utilized as a receiver & asked to block most of the time.

Agree and Honestly he was. I have ZERO problem with what he said!

As someone else mentioned he praised the colts and thanked them for the opportunity. I think the OP quote was taken out of context and was just him being excited to be on a perennial SB Contender.

Confined to a box?  Not sure what that means.  You can argue how well he did  but he blocked and was used as a receiver in our scheme.  

 

Im more concerned the the confined to a box term. How can you be confined in the box on a team when you are injured most of your career?

He had a great game against the jets (probably because he knew I was in the stands watching as the only colts fan around) but other than that he really didn't do much all year I'd say.

Just make sure that when you face Denver, Aqib Talib doesn't poke Allen in the eye again Jim.

    •   I didn't want to go all in on them, but no one covering the Colts does a very good job, IMO. They'll pick some stuff out at times, but for the most part, they aren't offering any real insight or sharing information.   I did listen to Holder and Keefer's Choppin Wood podcast for the first time last week. Wasn't bad, and they did share some behind the scenes stuff on Ballard's temperament and personality. Nothing earth shattering, but it was at least somewhat informative.
    • Well, I mean, I touched on it in the post you quoted. Look at how the Steelers have under-performed against far inferior teams...they play down to their opponents regularly...this has been the case for a while now...and it's this cocky, toxic environment that he has created. Not the first time the Jaguars have beaten them at home in a playoff game under Tomlin with the guise of a big opponent to follow...Bort beat them, David Garrard beat them...Tim Tebow, one of the worst QBs in NFL history, beat them...that wild card loss to Baltimore a few years ago was a joke too...but ignoring the big stuff, even during the regular season, they cut it way too fine against teams they should be trouncing with their talent.    This might be the most talented offense in the league. And they might know that, but they don't utilize it. They always try to get too tricky for their own good, they want to be geniuses...4th & 1...power forward QB Ben Roethlisberger...a sneak is too easy, even un-athletic 40-year-old Tom Brady still runs sneaks, Ben is like 15 for 15 on getting first downs on sneaks or some ridiculous stat...in a big spot, they go back to back toss sweep right against a diesel front 7. They need to go 1 yard, their QB is 2 yards tall, they go 5 yards behind the LOS and stretch it out into WRs and TEs who can't block LBs. This was the same thing with their overuse of the TE screen in years passed that cost them dearly in big spots.   Even the guys in the locker room, Mike Mitchell, a horrendous player in his own right...talking about how they were prepared for New England...as a result, they didn't get to play them.   You can go on and on, and it's tough to judge coaches from the outside...but if you can sense danger, so to speak, you can sense this thing stinks...it's buoyed by talent, that's fine, but it's not clear that the environment is really healthy there, it's not clear that this thing is really organized. It seems like a country club atmosphere (coincidentally, the Pittsburgh Penguins went through this for a time as well...which I can speak much more about it if only it were the appropriate board) and that falls on the organizational leadership that promotes that.
    •   GMs do that all the time. John Elway could have inked Malik Jackson before he was part of that 2015 historic SB winning season but chose to focus on other priorities knowing that the Von Miller re-signing was coming up. It is possible the Panthers anticipated other priorities then.
    • The Steelers problem is mainly on defense. They just haven't done a good job replacing that studly defense they had in the 2000s. Those linebackers, the secondary, the d line. They just don't have that dynamic defense anymore....and the one pretty athletic side line to side line line backer Shazier got hurt. They don't intimidate anyone any more....they are basically the 2000 Colts...overwhelming teams with offensive firepower.
    • I think this is actually a pretty good FA group for making a shift to a 4-3 defense. Fortunately, all of his long-term commitments from last offseason will fit (which I assume was the plan). But even given the amount of activity last offseason, I fully expect Ballard to get heavily involved in FA on the defensive side...including in the front 7.   A few more names to keep an eye on that haven't been mentioned:   DL - Kony Ealy, Alex Okafor CB - Kyle Fuller ILB  - Christian Jones OLB - Nigel Bradham, Mychal Kendricks (if cut)   I think we could see pickups at ILB, OLB, DE and DT. Could look something like this in early March:   RDE - Ealy RDT - Hankins LDT - ? LDE - Sheard   Will - Kendricks Mike - Hitchens Sam - Simon   That would set up a ton of flexibility heading into the draft. Get an elite defensive prospect (ideally a pass rusher) and then go after some positions on offense like OL, RB and WR.
