  1. Carson Wentz came out, in primetime, while everyone was watching, and balled out!! He's finally settling in, getting healthy, and the offense is vibing. I think Carson proved tonight that he can be that guy to any Colts fan that was still on the edge about him. It only gets better from here on out. Once we get our oline whole, TY healthy, and even more chemistry this is going to be a very dangerous offense. Idk about y'all but I can't wait to see the growth.

  2. … I believe the Colts will be 6-4. I think we will win our next five games. Houston San Fran Tennessee NYJ Jags I believe we win them all. You’re free to disagree.

  4. This is what Ballard has been saying since the start is main priority and cornerstone to what his teams should be built around. This is horrendous. And it cannot and should not be waved away with "Luck retired 2 weeks before the season 2 years ago, give it time". We are 5 years into Ballard's tenure and this has been the focus of Ballard and the FO. He has spent tons of resources on it. And we are dead last.

  6. The Ravens are NOT a good team this year. The Colts were up big for this reason. Whatever is being said by media regarding the Ravens, its smoke and absurd. The Ravens lost to a much improved Raiders team who only recently fell apart amidst the Gruden stuff. They beat a very mediocre KC team whose defense is worse than ours and who are not that good this year especially against the run and the Ravens running game outside of Lamar, is putrid. They needed a 66 yard fg to beat DETROIT, and they beat a terrible Denver team who was only once 3 and 0 by beating even worse teams than them. They should not have beaten us but they best us and everyone on here knows WE ARE TERRIBLE right now. Doesn't matter why. Doesn't matter if we shows signs of better stuff each week. WE ARE TERRIBLE right now. I'm only writing this thread because I saw some on here using stuff like Lamar is great, Ravens are really good, blah, blah, blah. Its hogwash. This Ravens team is not good and next week the Chargers will wax them. We lost because we are terrible. We are bottom tier. Thats it.

  7. This is another loss on Frank Reich. If he just takes the extra point, when they go for two. They never go to OT in the first place. He just went for it to try to cancel out the missed XP and wound up compounding the mistake. Its never a good idea to turn your nose up at points just because you would like to have more points. Also, he takes the ball out of Wentz hands on the drive they got the FG blocked. They deserved that because they played for the FG. People say hes aggressive, no hes not. Hes wreckless and there is a difference. Also what was up with that double reverse flea flicker? We didnt need it. They couldnt atop us straight up. Baltimore hadnt stopped us all night. If he just stays aggressive I think they might get a TD there. Idk whats wrong with Blankenship but this is the kind of performance that can destroy a kickers career. I hope he can get it together. I feel bad for Carson Wentz. He was so good all night long and deserved this win. I am excited to see how he finishes the season.

  8. They are not garbage or an embarrassment. They played well. I recall someone here who wrote that the Colts were going to get "trounced" by the Ravens. (I believe that is the word that was used.) Hahaha. The Colts played a very competitive game. Fans around the country were impressed despite the loss. For Colts fans, the loss hurt but saying the Colts were an "embarrassment" is not even close to accurate. My on a rare week day off.

  9. It's comical that some people think we bench Wentz to save the pick. No, that's not how this works. Doing so would ruin our chances of swinging deals with other GM's in the future.

  13. so they're fine with him attempting longer FGs but not an extra point? Nah...Frank is just way too concerned with analytics. He's done the same thing in previous games this year.

  14. Yup, Elliot needs to shut the xxxx up lol... And let's not act like Young isn't one of the more handsy and physical DBs out there. He's had a history of DPIs, many getting there too soon. He's been injured I think the last couple years, but the last year he played the majority of games he was top 10 in DB penalties. And it's not like the Ravens aren't known for cheap shots lol... My guess is that he was all over Doyle most of the game beyond 5 yards, and Doyle lost his patience. I don't care to be honest about the head shove. Wasn't like he kicked the dude or spit on him. It's a violent game. Don't be surprised when a little ruckus happens from time to time.

  17. Still a whole season to go but I have seen nothing so far to suggest that Carson cannot be our QB of the future barring injuries. He seems to be playing less recklessly than years past. Credit to Frank and Marcus Brady for the nice turnaround so far. We sure are not losing because of who is behind center!

  19. I understand a GM is not going to hit on every pick, but the last several years we have had several second round picks that have not produced as well as other players at similar positions that were drafted around the player we selected. 2017: Drafted Hooker 15th pick Drafted Quincy 46th pick 2018: Drafted Turay 52nd Drafted Lewis 64th pick 2019: Drafted Rock 34th pick Drafted Banogu 49th pick Drafted Campbell 59th pick

  20. Even if we lose Monday night. We've got 2x games vs Houston We've got 2x games vs Jax We've got the Jets We've got the 49'ers We've got the Patriots All winnable games (making 8 wins, for those playing at home) After that it's Cardinals, Raiders, Titans at Lucas Oil, Bills and Bucs Surely we can get 2 wins out of those 5 games? Maybe? It ain't over yet!

  21. Do you understand that some, including myself, simply are not sold on him as a long term solution? I've been iffy on him since the day he took over, long before this hip injury. Literally only one person made a post in this thread about replacing him permanently. I think maybe you're carrying over frustration from some comments in other threads into this one

  22. My good Lord, seriously?! I was * Monday night, not gonna lie. But the most "angry" thing I did was turn the TV off as soon as Brown caught the ball in the endzone.. I walked up the stairs in silence since my girls were sleeping. Got in bed quietly, didn't mention anything about the game to my wife, and watched a bit of her show with her.. That's how I coped. And like you said coming onto the forum and grieving with ya'll helps alot too. But come on.. these dudes are everyday people. I believe Julian Blackmon's family has been on michael pittmans youtube channel. They are just regular people, and some fans cant separate that, and put them on a pedestal .. that's horrible

  23. Are you taking into account the injuries he played through?? Or the terrible protection in the first couple weeks? What about the extremely questionable playcalling the first couple weeks too? Or what about the fact he is playing with all new receivers. An injured line? Numbers do lie. Anyone who takes an introductory stats course will know this. No disrespect @stitches - I just think compounding variables always need to be included with stats.

  24. Flashback to 2006 SB winning season. We lose 4 out of our last 7 games to finish 12-4 after starting 9-0 starting with a loss to the Romo led Cowboys. Got ran over for 375 yards, lost on a 60 yarder to Titans and Vince Young with kicker Rob Bironas and the straw that broke the camel's back, almost, was a 24-27 loss slow death to the lowly Texans on the road. Following the heels of a 2005 season playoff loss when we were favored, it pretty much knocked the wind out of our sails for hoping for a playoff run let alone a SB run, if you were sitting at the end of that 2006 season. We know how that season ended up, don't we? If you have seen enough football, you should know that no matter how badly you lose a game, it is still 0-1 and no matter how convincingly you win a game, it is still 1-0. Like Magic Johnson said after a loss to the Bulls "whether you lose by 2 or lose by 20, it still counts as only 1 loss". If we maintain that perspective, it becomes easier to ride the highs and lows. Stay strong!!! If we end up winning the division with the 1-0 approach, so be it. I am sure we still continue with the 1-0 approach and move forward. Moving On to the TEXANS!!

  25. Gonna give fair warning. My comments are not going to have a lot of positive. - Stick a fork in the Colts season. The team may win some games against overmatched opponents, but no playoffs this year. The reason: our "vaunted" defense. I may not be a coach, scout, GM, etc., but I will tell everyone this: you are not winning anything when your defense is able to play as bad as the Colts D in the last 18+ min of regulation and OT. The thing is that this is an established pattern that we have seen multiple times this season, last season (remember Steelers game last year) and even in 2019: where the defense goes complete sieve for extended periods of the game. I am sure there will 1000 excuses as there always are, but the above fact about winning football games (especially against good teams) with your defense playing like that is never going to change. - What the heck was Frank Reich thinking on the 2nd to last offensive possession with the Colts up 25-17? You have a kicker with an injury, you have a defense that has clearly shown it has stopped doing anything to help you win a football game and your answer is to run it two times against a stacked box? Why not on one of those plays run play action out of a tight formation designed to sell run? A TD there was the best chance to put the game away. - If Eberflus is getting heat (which is well deserved), a good portion should be directed at Ballard. It was his call to go with this scheme well before a head coach was hired. Most of the players on D are his picks. The current D is worse than anything we fielded when Pagano and Grigson were here. Do a quick search and look up how many QBs have had career type days against us over the past few seasons since Eberflus has been here. (and before I get flak for saying I want them back, I make that statement only to illustrate how bad the current D and scheme have been)

  30. Eagles need a QB. What a mediocre QB Hurts is. Was he the flavor of the month last year? Did he work on his accuracy at all in the off season? He’s been consistently under throwing or overthrowing his pass catchers across games. Ertz or Goedert would be more than happy to get out of there. I can see why Wentz wasn’t thrilled to back that guy up. Wentz is definitely a better QB than Hurts.

  32. After week 3 I brought this up about Reich may be losing the team and I got the most hatful responses. Here we are again, our head coach keeps second guessing his decisions every game. He is either too conservative then too aggressive, one misguided decision after another! I have played very high level hockey in my 20’s and 30’s and when a player sees his coach being so erratic it changes the tenor of the locker room and believe me our players are questioning Reich and are getting frustrated with their head coach being flat our incompetent at times. It will only get worse because Reich never learns from his mistakes and misgivings as a coach.

  33. One of the things I appreciate about Irsay is (I believe) he genuinely wants to win. Of course making money is important too but for some owners that's all they care about. I think Irsay cares about winning as well. I wish I believed the same for an owner of a different professional sports team. But I don't know if right now is the time to talk about how you are going to win X number of Superbowls in this decade. The team is 1-4. While I think the record will improve from a percentage standpoint by the end of this season I also think what we have is a borderline wild card team. There is still work to be done before this team can be considered a serious contender. The season thus far has confirmed that to me.

  35. That loss was frustrating... though, some positives came out of it: 1) Wentz looked very good for the most part ( a couple plays I thought he held the ball too long or didn't make the right read, but just a handful... for the most part, he was very good, I was glad to see he was so poised on the last drive of the 4th Q, putting us in a position to win on a 47 yard FG attempt). 2) Our OL looked very good despite not having Q, B. Smith and having Kelly banged up (again, a couple plays weren't good, but for the most part, they looked very good against a tough D -- if you count STs, their worst two plays of the game, IMO were the last two field goal attempts, letting Campbell get that far inside -- he went right over Glow both of them, blocked the first one and if Rodrigo kicked the next one straight, it looked like it would've gotten blocked again), 3) Our WRs looked impressive -- Baltimore is a tough team with a very strong D, and our WRs did well for the most part, 4) Our RBs looked very good -- Taylor had a very solid game, so did Mack... Hines was OK in limited time, 5) Our D looked solid for 3/4 of the game -- I won't have time to rewatch anytime soon, but for now, I'm not sure how much of the 4th Q/OT meltdown is on Flus, how much it is on having the secondary so banged up, how much it is on the fact that Lamar Jackson is a legit MVP candidate year in and year out the past few years and there's only so long you can hold an offense led by him back, etc. Some major negatives: 1) Our injury bug is ridiculous -- it's been going on since preseason.. but it seems like it is hitting us at almost every position now (again, I imagine some of that 4th Q meltdown was the fact that we were without a huge chunk of our secondary), 2) We may have a major K problem -- if Blankenship is truly hurt/injured, I expect we'll see him IRed tomorrow and his replacement brought in... even if he's not, I gotta worry about his confidence now and never thought he had a strong leg to begin with... we have been spoiled as most of the Vanderjagt years and all but his last year, the Vinatieri years, we had one of, if not the best, kicking games in the league... it's never good when we're losing games due to missed PATs and FGs from within 50 yards, 3) Our LB pass coverage -- I thought they tackled OK... but Andrews (TE) gashed us up... I thought the coverage from Okereke on him, especially on the goal line in the 4th Q was pathetic. 4) Some dumb penalties -- the first that comes to mind was the pass interference against Pittman. I like Pittman, but it seems like he has at least one dumb play (penalty) too often. Not that our other 4 penalties were any better, but at least some on the OL I hope can be chalked up to the fact that we're missing 2 starters, still welcoming Fisher (his false start was bad), and at least one of our other starters (Kelly) is playing banged up. 5) Earlier this year, we let R. Wilson (a mobile QB) throw for a perfect passer rating against us... last night, Lamar had probably the best game of his career. Other than his fumble and his slow start.... the 3rd/4th quarters and OT, he absolutely scorched us. I get it, we were playing with a very banged up secondary. That said, if we make it to the playoffs, we're doomed if we can't figure out how to deal with mobile QBs, as we'll likely have to face Mahommes, LJ, Allen from the AFC (all of whom are mobile QBs who can also throw). A point I think is moot: 1) Offensive play calling and Wentz -- we played very well against a very strong D for most of the game. Other than the fumble, and maybe a few plays where he held the ball a bit long, Wentz played well. There were one or two plays where I thought he should have audibled out of the play he called, but otherwise, Wentz was solid. Reich and Brady, I thought, did a heckuva job on the offensive play calling. For all those complaining that we should have gone for a big play on 3rd and 8 before Blankenship had a FG blocked, I guarantee if we turned the ball over (INT or fumble), if Wentz got sacked and moved us back a few yards, if we had an offensive penalty, etc... you would be the same ones saying Reich was dumb for not going for a first down on a 3rd and long and settling for a FG which would have put us up by two possessions and made it pretty impossible for us to lose. Also, Blankenship missed a PAT (which stinks) and then up 22-3 we missed a 2 pt conversion which also stunk. That said, making the 2 pt conversion puts us up 3 TDs. For those calling for Reich to be fired because he went for 2 pt conversion instead of going for PAT, you all would have been just as bad had we gone for the PAT and Blankenship missed again. I'm sure Reich remembers last year when we held Balt to 7 points in the first half and gave up 17 in the second half and was thinking (aside from Blankenship possibly being injured) that 24-3 is way better than 22 or 23-3 with how explosive LJ and the Ravens O can be. Why I remain hopeful: 1) We have 5 very winnable games in a row with Houston, 49ers, Titans at home, NYJ, Jax. Should be realistically able to go 5-0 during this stretch... so if we are 6-4 going into Buffalo I think we'll be in a good spot. Then we have a tough TB at home, and Houston. Very realistically, I think we can go into the bye week at 7-6 .. after our bye, the only concern I have is AZ.. so I think a 10-7 record is very feasible for us (if not better, assuming we don't lose any games we should win, beat the Titans in the rematch, and potentially get a win over Buff, TB, or AZ). As bad at HOU and JAX are, I think our only competition in the AFC S if TEN. At 3-2 (with a loss to the lowly Jets), they have the Bills, Chiefs, us, Rams and Saints in the next 5 weeks... while I think we can legit go 5-0, assuming we beat TEN, I think the best they will be able to do is go 1-4 in the next 5 (with losses to Buff, KC, LAR and a win vs. the Saints). That would put us at 6-4 and them at 4-6 after 10 weeks.. assuming we beat TEN and I'm wrong on a couple games, it's very possible we both go into week 11 at 5-5. 2) We should, hypothetically, get healthier. I assume Q and Braden Smith will come back, that Fisher will continue to improve and that Kelly will stay as is or get healthier -- so our OL should only improve moving forward. We should get TY back at some point, which should help our O, especially if he comes back and is able to play healthy down the stretch (his major knock the past few years is that he was so banged up down the stretch). We should get Ya-Sin, Carrie, Paye, etc. back on D... I don't know how the injuries to X. Rhodes and all the other DBs that got hurt last night are, but assuming they come back healthy, our D should continue to improve (that said, I think if BoPete Keyes and Chesley are our CBs moving forward, we're in for some trouble). 3) I'm encouraged by some of our guys who are in kind of 'prove it' years. A couple examples: Tyquan Lewis, IMO, is playing by far his best football of his career. Turay is making impressive plays each week. As we get a bit healthier and these guys start gelling more, I think we'll continue to see improvement.

  36. He's been distinctly... average so far. We need more Wentz games like the one yesterday for me to be convinced he's the guy. So far he's been OK to good(excluding the game he shouldn't have played IMO). This will not be good enough over the long haul IMO. We need more consistently great Wentz.

  38. You got a lot of hate in you.... I like it. I think the Colts are more likely an average team without injuries, and a below average team with injuries. Also, Lamar has more individual yards then some entire offenses combined. He is no push over.

  39. Not a fan of it either but it did help get us in position for a chance to win. Maybe it was all part of his plan.

  40. It's football. You literally line up against someone for about three hours trying to beat him into the ground. Aggression and emotion is going to leak out from time to time. Am I happy about it? NO! Stuff like that's gonna happen though. It's a violent game. Heck I don't think I'm a dirty person and I used to do stuff like that. You just need to have a mean mindset and when you do this stuff will happen.

  41. If Wentz can stay healthy it appears we have found our franchise qb.

  42. Getting settled in for a long night here in Scotland, 1.15am kick off. Thankfully home working allows a bit of a long lie to hopefully reflect on a Colts win.

  43. These kinds of death threats have been around well before social media/Twitter. Baseball fans have heard of Bill Buckner, Hank Aaron and many others who received death threats. And those threats did not only come when people were drunk. It is shameful.

  44. There are numerous teams in the NFL that completely bomb picks year after year. Ballard has certainly whiffed on a few, Hooker, Quincy, and Banogu are the only 3 that we can definitively say were bad though if Campbell gets hurt again he may be on the list. Turay and Lewis are coming into their own(Lewis especially) and Rock has turned into our best CB. As a whole, Ballard is very good at drafting. Our biggest issues come down to defensive scheme in that our LB's seem unable to cover and offensively we typically aren't the most creative. Have some faith!
