The “hate” or what rational people call facts, is that JB is not very good. Maybe your 4th Q defense would do better if the offense didn’t leave them out there hanging so frequently. JB wasn’t good with TY, Ebron, Doyle, Mack and the entire starting oline all season, he just is overblown as a kid with potential and he hasn’t even come close to reaching the low level fruit plateau in terms of potential. He had probably the best 3 quarters of the season yesterday with deep attempts and some touch. Outside of those 3 quarters, he had to play the fourth and that’s where he derailed. Again! He went back to missing open receivers. Throwing behind his guy and all his other bad traits. I’m hopeful the coaching staff is ready to wash their hands of him as well as the starter and ready to see what the new chapter looks like without JB staring down a single first read receiver.
Going into the season, I thought we had a very formidable 1-2 WR group with TY and Funchess. I had higher hopes for Cain and thought Campbell would really blossom as the season went on.
Funchess got hurt for the year after it looked like he and Jacoby had nice chemistry week 1. Cain wasn't the Cain the colts.com documentaries were making him out to be. TY has been banged up for a good chunk of the season. Campbell has shown flashes, but he's been hurt or injured almost all season.
On top of that, I thought Ebron and Doyle would be one of the most formidable TE groups in the league. Ebron had multiple bad drops along the way and is now on the IR. Doyle's had an all right year, but the rest of our TE's are nothing better than mediocre (at least at receiving).
While J. Williams also had a couple of good games, our running attack was without our #1 for a couple weeks and our team didn't win with Mack on the injury report.
LOL yes I have been an eyewitness to much of this, definitely don’t need to see it on YouTube to believe you. And I have had the unfortunate experience of wearing my Colts jersey to a preseason game once, definitely got taunted and that was only preseason! Only didn’t bother me as much because I grew up in inner city Philly so I was used to the rudeness but no I totally get it, I never said the reputation wasn’t deserved. But since I am from Philly I just jump to hating Dallas more, just my personal bias
"Standing 6'1", 239 pounds, Dillon clocked a 4.56 in the 40-yard dash and a 4.29 in the shuttle. His athleticism (38.3-inch jump) and strength (40-foot toss) were also on display, earning him SPARQ (speed, power, agility, reaction and quickness) ratings MVP honors for a second-straight year."
Freshman 2017. 1500+ yds Rushing
Sophomore 2018. 1100+ yds
Junior. 2019. 1600+ yds
RB isn't high on my "Colts need" list, but A.J. Dillon is the perfect complimentary RB for this Team. Even at 249lbs he's still running a 4.5 40-yd and he doesn't get injured like Mack bc of his size.
