  1. When its as unpredictable as its been, there's plenty of blame to go around. But Eberflus Ive always hated how, at least on defense more so than offense, we're content playing "not to lose." Then like in BAL, we can't get Jackson down because of his otherworldly mobility and eventually finds someone. And that philosophy extends long before Eberflus came to town. Funny, though, after year one, some of us were talking concerns about him being poached to HC somewhere else. Now, those of us that thought it then, most surely wished someone had.
  2. Colts Super Bowl 41 win. Nothing will ever beat that game for me.
  3. I'm less concerned about Eberflus' game plan than I am the players inability to get pressure and cover the WR. Eberflus' adjustments won't be worth the time spent calling in the play if the players can't carry out the assignment. Our pass defense is not in good shape unless we're playing in monsoons every game remaining on our schedule.
  4. If the dude's healthy (and apparently, even if less than healthy), he's one of the most impactful players on the field. He can blitz, he can cover, and he can weave through traffic. to make the tackle along the sideline. If he's not the best LB in football, I'd still probably pick him to put on my team. Against the teams we've played this year, he's one of the reasons we've only allowed 21.3 points against this year (11th best).
  5. - We'll really struggle against air raid teams. Secondary just playing w 1 arm tied behind back -Pittman is making a case as a legitimate #1 - wentz I honestly think is close to 2017 form - Blame it on the rain, not Milli Vanilli, but too many holding calls. Sloppy blocking but still, held up when we needed a big play - say what you want about the defense bend but dont break, when they live up to the name, you cant hate on the crazy amount of turnover and impact plays
  6. Not taht we've deserved to win any of them, but we should've won TEN and BAL. We gave those away, but LAR could've gone either way. We just some bad injury luck and had to rely on Eason. I mean, tough loss, but Wentz stays in, we could've finished them off. Even if we just didn't give away the two I mentioned, we're 4-2 and first in the division. But we've got to get some sort of healthy.
  7. Not that you expect much down to earth thinking on the radio, particularly from Mike Wells, but he was co-hosting with Bowen this morning and he was talking about how much Ballard botched the backup QB position because of his movement up and down the depth chart. Not to mention that Ballard said "Look, he's a 4th round pick, he's going to have to earn it" when asked after he was drafted and hasn't had a great thing to say about him since. To me, when it mattered, we had a serviceable backup when we needed it - Jacoby - and he did well when he was forced to start an entire season after Luck retired. After signing Rivers, we all knew we couldn't keep Jacoby at $20m as a backup and couldn't really resign him for what he wanted after the 2020 season so we drafted Eason. Had the talent, but needed to be coached up - what do you expect from a 4th rounder? ya know? and then we drafted Ehlinger in 2021 and signed Hundley and put him on the practice squad. Ehlinger goes on IR and once we get to see Eason, activate Hundley to the active roster because we've seen enough of Eason. Ballard will put him back on the PS if he clears waivers or maybe we don't. But these guys act like we're 2-4 because we cut Eason and Ballard has just completely mishandled the backup situation. Like, we're talking about a backup QB. Any team that has to put in their backup for considerable time is in a bad place. Let's not act like even serviceable backups like Fitzpatrick and Brissett are the norm when we draft 4th round and later QBs. Let's get a little bit of a grip on reality...
  8. Let's hold off with this one. Let's at least wait until whispers of JT being HOF worthy first.
  9. At least matter more than other less consequential kicks. I'm not saying he's the sole reason we lost, but damn, it's one of the bigger reasons for it.
  10. 296 yards and 4 touchdowns on the last 4 Ravens possessions (32 plays total). I don't care about record setting performances as much as I care about how much the defense just crumbled. That's 9.25 yards a play. Just putrid. They didn't even have 150 yards on 5 possessions. Force a punt, get a turnover. Do something other than let them march down the field like there's only 11 offensive players on the field and no one else.
  11. So we should expect flare ups in the future? Yes I can be prepared for that, hire another kicker. Unless this was the first time in Blankenship's medical history, then this was not something that should've caught the Colts off guard. That being the case, hire another kicker because you're basically (and to restate it once more) walking into a game with your pants around your ankles hoping for the best.
  12. The article I read said it was a flare up. That suggest he was injured prior to the game. So, again, should've hired another kicker while Blankenship heals.
  13. I don't care if he was injured or not. He either should've made it or we should've known better and hired someone off teh street until we could rely on Blankenship. You don't just waltz into a game with your pants down around your ankles and hope for the best.
