Let me ask you which is the best team we have beat all year? Okay which elite team have we been competitive against? Another one and done season. Book it.
Get rid of Pagano, this team is winning not because, but in spite of coaching staff. Would love someone like Harbaugh but that isn't happening. I hope local media can ask tough questions, we have been unprepared too many games this season.
Also what is the logic of 3 straight runs(run on 3rd and long) and asking your punter to throw? I know it was dropped, but just looking at logic behind that
Edit: also for those saying team had nothing to play for, so that's why they an egg. That's still on coaching....Also why play starters if there's no effort/heart?
This team didn't have much talent in 2012, but Arians knew how to get the team to play hard.
I WANT TO FIRST SAY THAT WE AS COLTS FANS ARE SOMEWHAT SPOILED WITH VIRTUALLY NON-STOP SUCCESS FOR ALMOST 20 YEARS.....AND I DO REALIZE THERE WAS ONLY 1 SUPER BOWL WIN IN THERE ALONG WITH 1 OTHER TRIP.....STILL IT'S BEEN A PRETTY GOOD RIDE THAT VERY FEW NFL FANS GET TO TAKE.....THAT BEING SAID.....THE PAGANO / RYAN GRIGSEN ERA COLTS " HAVE " TAKEN A STEP FORWARD EACH YEAR .....AND I AGREE THAT I HAVE SEEN SOME QUESTIONABLE DECISION MAKING.....BUT 33 AND 15 IWITH 3 PLAYOFF WINS IS STILL SOMETHING MANY NFL FANS WOULD DIE FOR.....MY POINT HERE IS AND I AM WANTING TO KNOW IF ANYONE ELSE FEELS THE SAME......WHILE MY ONLY FOOTBALL COACHING EXPERIENCE COMES AT THE LITTLE LEAGUE LEVEL.....IF I WERE COACHING AGAINST A BILL BELLICHICK COACHED TEAM.....HERE IS WHAT I WOULD DO AND I THINK PAGANO SHOULD TRY JUST ONCE AS HIS PREVIOUSVENTURES HAVE YIELDED LITTLE FRUIT(WINS) FIRST....PAGANOS OPENING GAME PLAN I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH.....EARLIER IN THE SEASON WHEN WE PLAYED NEW ENGLAND THE SCORE AT HALFTIME WAS 14 TO 10 NEW ENGLAND BUT NONE THE LESS A GOOD AND COMPETETIVE GAME.........AND NOW THE RUB.......WHEN YOU PLAY BELLICHICK ANYTHING THAT WORKED FOR YOU IN THE FIRST HALF YOU MUST TAKE AWAY AND NOT GIVE HIM THE CHANCE TO ADJUST TO IT.....IN OTHER WORDS PAGANO WILL HAVE TO INSTALL AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT GAME PLAN FOR THE SECOND HALF SO BELLICHICK CAN'T BE READY FOR ANYTHING YOU DO IN THE SECOND HALF.........AS A SIDE NOTE NEW ENGLAND HAS " RUN " THE BALL DOWN OUR GULLET THE LAST TWO TIMES WE PLAYED THEM SO WE NEED TO BE READY FOR THAT EVEN THOUGH WITH BELLICHICK IT IS NO CERTAINTY TO OCCUR AGAIN.....WE MUST BE READY FOR BRADY ALSO.....BUT I SURELY WOULD NOT LET ANY NEW ENGLAND RUNNING BACK TO SCORE 3 TDS ON US THIS TIME OUR SECONDARY IS PLAYING WELL AND IS FINALLY HEALTHY SO I THINK WE SHOULD STACK THE LINE AND FORCE BRADY TO THROW AND PUT SOME PRESSURE ON HIM.....THE RAVENS GOT A PICKON HIM AND IF YOU CAN HIT HIM HARD A COUPLE OF TIMES HE TENDS TO HEAR FOOTSTEPS AND GETS A LITTLE SLOPPY THROWING THE BALL.....WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?????
