    Colts have fired OL coach Dave DeGuglielmo

    Sorry but I completely disagree, and I would say anyone who has watched Andrew Luck the past several years would as well. We were down 2 scores a great deal of the game. Actually getting the ball back with about 4 minutes left to work when we got a bonehead running into the kicker call that put it away. As bad as we played, we were one or two plays going our way from being right back in the ballgame. Every team has weaknesses. KC's run defense and secondary is pretty bad. We should have been able to "exploit" them both, but failed miserably. NE won't and i'll put money on that. At the end of the year, KC isn't going to look at the Indy game and say, man our defense is right where it needs to be. We'll no doubt shore up the holes on our team, but that game doesn't speak for the team this season... at all. They will not replace Braden Smith at RT because he performed poorly in this game. He's had a great rookie season. They will not punish Luck for playing poor. They won't replace Vinny for having the worst game of his career. Nor replace most of the defense, which played well enough to give the offense every opportunity to keep us in it... They'll look at it and say it was a bad game, all around. And use it as a teaching point going forward.

    I wasn't really directing that post to you, more to him. Sorry for that. I agree with you. Ballard pitched Eberflus to Reich and he obviously bought in. Gugs worked directly with Reich on a weekly basis and possibly didn't work well as Frank was known to be very involved in the offensive line gameplanning. I know Frank is involved in the defense as well but more from a HC and offering his perspective from an offense type of role. I am with you in that there has been nothing to indicate they don't work well together. Clearly Gugs did not...

    We held them to 31 points... would have been 24 had we not ran into the punter at the end. That isn't getting exposed, that's playing pretty damn well against an mvp led offense that averages 35 pts a game. Our run defense was a little rough, but this was the exception to the rule this season. First 100 yard rusher all year. Again, don't evaluate a seasons work in one game. They weren't exposed. They played bad.

    I don't think Reich's philosophy on defense matters. Ballard is the one building the team and brought Eberflus on to coach this particular defense. Reich bought in to ballard's vision, and i can imagine even more so now.

    On a topic about the offensive line... sorry for misunderstanding. Literally the only thing exposed was receivers that can't separate. Nothing else was "exposed." Their pass rush was a concern, but so was Houston's. Everyone thought our line would dominate running the football that it would take the pass rush out of the game. Obviously we abandoned the rush early, and it backfired.

    Exposed where? Offensive line? The same unit that took JJ Watt and Jadaveon Clowney and the #3 rushing defense and ran all over them? They had a bad game... Does not define their season by any means.

    The One Play That Set The Tone

    I think it set the tone for the first half. I think Vinny's miss after a beautiful job clawing into damn near a touchdown going into half, killed them for the remainder of the game. As one Indy writer said, if Vinny is missing that kind of kick, ain't nothing going right for anybody...

    He sure did. And then we abandoned the run completely...

    Ballard stressed this point in his presser. Someone asked if the KC game highlighted what the needs of this team are. That bolded remark was pretty well exactly what he responded with. We played bad and kansas city played really well Saturday. You can't evaluate this team from that game... at all. Andrew Luck had an awful year, if that's the case. O-line is no better than it was. Defense can't stop the run. Vinny can't make a fieldgoal. Reich sucks as a playcaller. See how stupid that is to evaluate a season's work in one game? I also liked how Ballard is allowing everyone a few weeks off before evaluations start. Cannot go straight from a season-ender to the evaluation process. I loved that.

    I think you just foreshadowed within a single post. Frank knew that addressing it in that moment in training camp could have implications throughout the season. Sometimes it is better to take note, and deal with it later, than to create problems at the very beginning. I said it earlier, it wasn't just Denzell Good that had issues with this guy. There was a pattern of behavior and his character seems to be out of place with the rest of the organization. Good riddance. What qualified line coach wouldn't want to coach this group?

    From everything I read, Eberflus is pretty hard nosed too. Calling guys out as "loafs" in film. I don't think that was the issue with this guy. There'a difference between being hard nosed and a butt.

    He was not a fit here. There are too many reports out there how aggressive he was in his coaching. The report of Good was not a good look for a locker room that is working hard to be great. He didn't blame the Colts, he solely blamed this guy for being a butt to him after his brother died. This unit was night and day better for a number of reasons. This guy is likely pretty far down on the list of why. 1. Better scheme under Reich 2. Adding Quenton Nelson and Braden Smith 3. Veteran leadership from Slauson 4. Glowinski pickup 5. Healthiest and most consistent line we have had in years. 6. This guy
  13. You are doing a mighty fine job from what I can tell...
  14. I have seen this comment before on this forum when I call someone a troll. Or something along the lines of "seems like this is your response when someone doesn't agree with you." Trolling is, by definition, posting digressive material to provoke a negative response. That happens a lot on this forum, and this subject falls in line. We could just ignore?... you're absolutely right, we should just completely ignore garbage posts from now on.

    Reich : The Chiefs outcoached and outplayed us .

    The very next play was a 10 yard run that made it 3rd and 3. We had the right play call but Ebron dropped it. From then on, we just never stuck with it. Never tried to get Mack and this o-line in a rhythm and it trickled down the rest kf the game.
