  1. He has only been responsible for 2% of the pressures he has faced this season, which is #1 among all 34 qualifying QBs. Per PFF. He’s not running into pressure, he’s not holding the ball too long, etc. It’s the protection - or lack thereof. And I say protection because the OL, TEs, RBs, and coaching staff all have some blame here.

  2. Would Philadelphia trade us back our conditional pick we gave them for Wentz?

  3. Or we could use his strengths until he becomes a more rounded player. Use him in the red zone ect. It shouldn’t be all or nothing.

  7. Would have preferred to see a 1-2 of JT and Mack running it, and Hines used mostly as APB. Mack has been the better zone runner, and JT better power. Hines the better edge. Oh well. Goes back to questionable rotation / usage. I don't blame Mack for asking if he's not going to be used. Can we get MIKE or FS for Mack is my question.

  8. He was inactive last week. That's the literal opposite of shoehorning him into games to help his value and facilitate a trade. We re-signed him for cheap, allowed him to rehab and play in preseason/week 1, and could end up getting an extra pick for just that. How is that poorly executed?
    6 points
  9. Probably not a real good market for him honestly. He’s on a 1 year deal, coming off an Achilles injury, and has shown next to nothing. And to be quite honest we’re not in a position where we should be shoehorning him into games to help his value and facilitate a trade. Whether this was the plan for his return or not the whole thing has been * poorly executed.

  12. This is a shame, I'm a fan of Mack. Really wish they would use him up the middle instead of trying to do it with Hines. Really just use him more in general. But they barely use JT as it is, so I def get where Mack is coming from. Knowing the Colts luck with injuries, as soon as they trade him, they'll have a need

  14. We're tied to Wentz to at least end of next season. And... He's not our problem And... It's a bad QB class

  15. I was gonna say QB hits. The people blaming Wentz for the wheels falling off this team arent watching the games. Wentz has looked great at times, above average in others, and being completely hobbled in one game. I also doubt his ability to stay healthy but he is tough as nails and he's done the best with everything he's been given. I cant say that for most other players on this team.

  16. All of the reports are that both Mack and the Colts have mutually agreed to seek a trade. That means that Mack (or his agent) approached the team about a trade, that the team agreed to. We didn't just put him on the block in hopes we could get something. There's also reports that there's already early interest as well. I saw that you said should and my point still stands. The team's response to him seeking a trade was to make him inactive, not to play him to try to drive his value up. Why would they make him inactive last week due to seeking a trade, then suddenly do a 180 and force him into the gameplan. That's absurd. This is purely unfounded conjecture, especially since Frank has literally never done this before. You may be upset with Frank right now and not have a high opinion of him, but there is a zero % chance Frank throws him into the lineup to try to up his trade value. Mack's value is what it is. Teams have seen him rush for 1k yards pre-injury, and saw in preseason/early regular season that Mack is healthy (maybe not 100% back to where is was from the mental aspect of the injury). He has his established value in teams' eyes and playing him only risks injury that would crash his trade value to 0. I don't think that was at all what they had planned and until he asked for a trade, I don't think the Colts had any intention of doing so. You're making it sound like this was the plan from day 1, when there's no indication that that's the case. It's very clear the trade talk just occurred between the week 2 and 3 games, hence making him inactive for week 3. You're making a huge assumption that trading him was always the plan, then getting upset that we did a poor job showcasing him to drive up his value, but also getting upset stating that we shouldn't showcase him more to drive up his trade value. You might need to take a step back on this one, because you're contradicting yourself and getting upset over unfounded assumptions.

  18. I think this is a mistake because I think JT and Mack complement each other's skill sets. Mack is also good in pass pro, and we need that. JT is decent, but he's far from a star right now. Of course I think the season is probably lost so it probably doesn't matter.

  19. Basically, there are way too many below average players on this ball club. Now, in almost any team sport, when you have a situation where most of the players are grading so poorly CONSISTENTLY, it's either a bad scheme, bad coaching, or bad players. We need to figure out what the 2021 issue is. Is it the players? Well, what were the average grades of those guys in 2020? Are they performing worse? If they are, what's the context? Are they injured? Unmotivated? Did they get paid and drop off in motivation? Are they outmatched? Is it coaching? What're the key schematic differences from last year? Sidenote, I thought Sendejo flashed on Sunday. It took me a while to realize who #42 was but he was always around the football.

  23. There are a ton of doom and gloom posts….and to an extent, rightfully so. However, I want to bring attention to one player who has been dogged on here before but has actually shown decent improvement so far this year. Rock Ya Sin. He hasn’t been a world beater but I haven’t noticed him getting nearly as burnt as he was last year. Thoughts?

  27. I’ve rewatched all three games 3 times and here is why I feel this is becoming true. 1. Dozens of plays where the defense looks uninspired. 2. Reich said he has full confidence in Eason but is relegated to 3rd string 3. Grossly missed blocking assignments and half hearted efforts 4. I know Reich is stoic on the sidelines but lack of emotion which rubs off on the team. Such dejection coming off the field but no response by coach. these of course our my opinions but these issues are glaring .

  28. Fish, think about it a little more deeply. Charity case? How?? Equal value? ANYTHING >>> Mack sitting inactive. It's Ballard-hunting season I know, but if he gets anything better than a 7th for this, you have to give him his flowers.

  29. Never understood why we signed him other than as a loyalty contract for hurting his Achilles while on a cheap rookie deal. Hook him up with some cash. From a pure football perspective, pointless to bring him back

  30. OL I think is dragging the majority of offensive skill player grades down. The D, just too much reliance on guys developing, and frankly bad fit personnel usage. Coaching and scheme, absolutely are impacts.

  31. The metric mentioned in the OP shows that Wentz' actions aren't causing the pressure he's experiencing. He isn't facing increased pressure because he's just holding onto the ball too long. He may have a bit longer time to throw because he's instantly trying to extend plays, but the protection is failing him on a consistent basis.

  32. I'll go with a different option here. Trade down and acquire a couple more picks to replenish the roster with. Stay in the 1st round, but get your 2nd rounder back, and an extra 3rd to keep the young talent flowing and fix the players you missed on.

  33. I haven’t posted here for a minute but I’d like you to go look at the Bills game and see how far Philip carried this team with sub par WR group .I think he needs to come back to Indy for any shot this year period .But management must make upgrades at WR at the Deadline or I’d turn down Indy and wait for a much better scenario .Colts better make the call or they are done .

  34. No. But he hasn’t “found” Carson Wentz yet. That guy looks like the lost, regressing QB that’s been declining in Philly. His 3rd down execution is atrocious. Just watched our 2nd to last drive of the 1st half. 3rd & 13. We’ve got a 2 way screen called. Taylor over the middle or Campbell outside. Campbell is there wide open with the blocking set up and only 1 man to beat. He looks at him. Pumps. And then has to dirt it trying to hit Taylor who the DT simply grabbed at the line. Get the dang ball out Wentz. My goodness. I’m terrified to watch our last drive of the half where Frank had to just pull the plug & take the field goal before Wentz took a sack knocking us outta field goal position or turned it over. Because he was really struggling seeing things to close the half.

  37. Reich's biggest problem is he doesn't scheme his players into scenarios where they can succeed. He just thinks every player is plug in play in his great "offense". Hines is great in space, yet Reich continues to stubbornly send him up the middle like he and JT are the same player. Meanwhile your stud RB sits on the sidelines and gets 10 carries. Parris Campbell is supposed to be some speedster WR, yet Dulin gets schemed a play, but nothing for Campbell? Mo-Allie Cox has needed more plays for him for 2 years. Yes, I understand that he is a great blocker, but whenever he gets the ball good things happen so just leave him in and block. Why does Reich keep calling runs up the middle regardless of the situation? They run great to the left side, but barely ever do it. Or even worse, they'll try to run to the right behind backup LT who is playing RT. Oh, and expecting Eason to come in and play almost air Raid offense when Wentz got hurt at the last two minutes (instead of having him throw quick sideline passes) still baffles me. Firing Dave DeGuglielmo for being "mean" really worked wonders for this O-Line. *eyeroll* Plus, this whole trading back to the 2nd round and getting more picks instead of getting premium talent isn't looking like the greatest strategy either. This absolute/utter lack of a pass rush is killing this team.

  38. I'm just going to make this now so I don't miss Thursday. Good luck everyone: Jaguars 10 vs. BENGALS 20 TITANS 33 vs. Jets 3 CHIEFS 28 vs. Eagles 10 Panthers 17 vs. COWBOYS 21 Giants 14 vs. SAINTS 24 Browns 27 vs. VIKINGS 28 LIONS 7 vs. Bears 6 Texans 13 vs. BILLS 45 COLTS 20 vs. Dolphins 17 WFT 12 vs. FALCONS 13 Seahawks 21 vs. 49ERS 24 Cardinals 31 vs. RAMS 34 Steelers 13 vs. PACKERS 26 RAVENS 28 vs. Broncos 27 BUCCANEERS 20 vs. Patriots 18 Raiders 28 vs. CHARGERS 30 Some of these were quite hard. I feel like Chargers and Raiders could go either way, and same with Seahawks and 49ers. Vikings had a big win this past weekend so I'm giving them the advantage at home against the Browns. The Bucs have more talent than New England, but I think it will be closer than some think.

  41. We can't take a quarterback in this draft, period. It's not because I love Wentz, or because of the capital we've already given up. It's because, in grading QBs this season, I don't see a single draft-eligible quarterback in college football that even deserves first round consideration. The class is garbage, and if we take a quarterback just so we can "move on", we'll end up moving backwards. Start filling other holes. Take a DB like Stingley or Hamilton, or a pass rusher like Thibodeaux or Jackson, and give Wentz another season, potentially looking to replace him if needed in 2023

  43. But Ballard has to be on board with the usage. He and Frank must be on the same page if the Colts are willing to trade. I agree, we should keep him as a breather for JT. Hines should never sniff the plays JT runs, IMO.

  44. To be fair... he is holding the ball too long. The 2% stat is cases where he was singularly to blame for the pressure. It doesn't mean the rest is on the OL. In huge majority of the cases they both have a piece of the blame. The reality is ... both the pass protection has been bad AND Wentz is holding the ball too long in a lot of cases. It's a double whammy!

  45. I posted something I read on twitter a couple days ago.... Its something like Wentz hasn't missed a regular season game due to injury since 2018. I think he missed 3 gameds in 2017 with ACL and came back to start the 2018 season but left after 11 games due to a fracture in his back. So he has missed a total of 8 REGULAR season games due to injury since coming into the league in 2016.

  46. No matter how this season ends they will still be committed to Wentz as the future. To many weird things has happened so far this year. Plus it’s a bad QB class. The goal this year has to get everyone healthy and just build some chemistry for next season. if they do somehow get that high of a pick it almost has to be a tackle. Not sure if there is any defensive ends that will be worth anything. Or maybe they look towards a offensive weapon.

  47. Doesn't run block. Not a polished route runner. Doesn't play special teams. His only game thus far is good hands and makes contested catches. Gotta have a bit more of an all around game to see the field.

  48. If Wentz is our future we need to treat him as such and rest him. We are just delaying him reaching his ceiling by keeping him hobbled.

  49. To me there doesn't appear to be a massive void in talent...it's just underperforming, and that means coaching. The offensive play calling is hideous, and that is squarely on Reich
