  1. Your opinion. I'm just not getting all twisted up because we no longer have a generational talent QB. It is what it is.
  2. Im... confused at all the hate on the forum. Andrew Luck retired during the preseason. We had Brissett, a more than capable starter and backup for Luck; who stepped into the starting role. He hasnt been awful, even leading the league in TD passes at a few points during the season. Don't forget 1.5 of our losses arent even on Brissett. That's on Hoyer. TY gets hurt Ebron has been struggling with injuries Funchess gets hurt Mack gets hurt Its gotta be tough working with a receiving corps without your projected top 3 pass catchers. I mean, we have been trotting Rogers, Pascal and co out there for a few weeks now. I'd much rather, and this is just me: a fan and nothing else; continue building the defense as we have been, acquire a few new offensive weapons and give Jacoby a chance as the starter for at least two more years. I mean, look at our losses this year. Chargers- AV makes one kick, we win. Raiders- Brissett pick six killed us. Steelers/Dolphins- Hoyer Texans- really bad calls, the no call holding on the texans td, the botched fumble, the garbage hold on us, and the no call helmet to helmet on Jacoby early. In reality, Brissett has lost us one game, and in every game we have been competitive, even with some top teams in the league. I'm not willing to just cut bait and run. I think that the opposite is true. I think we are on the cusp of a breakthrough.
  3. I wont disagree about the timeout. We should have been ready to go faster. There were a few things in the game where if you point to one call being made right, the Colts walk out with a W. Either way, another week and another game that leaves a bad taste in my mouth for the NFL.
  4. Wasnt it called down by contact on the field?
  5. Other than... you know, Leonard holding the ball in his groin and saying "I got it" on national TV.
  6. Eh. I can live with the 4th and 7 call. This is how the Colts play football now. We live and die by the coin flip of close games. Jacoby doesnt get spun around on the run and hes got a first down and Reich's a genius. Besides, like Troy said, it's the same as a punt in that situation, because your defense still has to stop the texans.
  7. I have a feeling that the NFL just wants to see the Texans win, and they will do what they can to make sure they do. Watson is the new shining face of the NFL and in a larger market team.
  8. Jeez. We lost by three. You make it sound like we lost by thirty three.
  9. Nope. Just a non-reviewed play. The way this stuff is going in the NFL lately, it's making it really hard to justify watching games. In the past I would have 5-6 fantasy teams and watch every game I could, now I'm down to just watching Colts games and it's getting tough to even do that with the quality of the product the NFL is putting out. Also, the helmet hit on Jacoby in the first quarter *after* he started his slide didnt get called and ended another drive.
  10. Hate to see games decided because of no-calls. That, and the fumble that leonard forced on Watson near the end of the game that they refused to even look at. Oh well.
  11. Justin Houston Darius Leonard But, y'know, the sky is falling and Chris Ballard doesn't get difference makers, Houston's old and washed up and Leonard's regressing, and all the other garbage this forum spews after a loss. Highest Graded Players
  12. This is insane talk. Ballards first draft brought us Hooker and Mack. We also have Walker (7th round pick) and Wilson starting considerable time. Not to mention we got a two year rental out of Hairston at the cost of one round in the draft. (Drafted 5th, traded for 6th) Home run? Nah, but serviceable draft. Hookers injury bug cant really be blamed on the GM. That one handed interception was insane. 2018- 2 all pro rookies, another above average guard, a handful of solid players as well. I would say this draft class is better than 2012, in all honesty. May be high praise, but we will see how this pans out. 2019- how, in all of the earth can you even make a decision about the rookies this far? The defense, while far from consistent is still one one of the least penalized defenses in the league (#3 per NFL.com)
  13. Again, you completely miss the point I'm making for sake of some "Um... Actually..." rulebook quoting argument. The ball never touched the ground. If Ebron did not slide out of bounds, that would have been called a catch. That's the issue. If it's a catch on the 20 yard line, it should be a catch in the endzone. It has nothing to do with the endzone, it has nothing to do with any rule you quote about leaving your feet. The rules are applied inconsistently. That's the point I'm making, the same point that I have continued to make, and the point that you continue to miss at every turn. If at any point you have possession of the football and the football breaks the plane of the endzone, it should be a touchdown. Its applied that way for runners entering the endzone. Otherwise keep the rule the same, but make runners have to have two feet or a foot and a body part in the endzone and maintain possession to the ground. Consistency.
  14. It. Absolutely. Does. But hey, if you want to be a condescending smart butt, go nuts. If Ebron had caught that ball in the field of play, or hadn't slid out of bounds it would be called a catch. Ball didnt touch the ground, it's still live. However, because theres a change in the consistency of the rules (a player running towards the endzone and diving across the pylon doesnt have to maintain possession to the ground) but a player that catches the ball doesnt immediately score a touchdown when the ball crosses the plane of the endzone in possession. The rules are different depending on where you are on the field regarding catches and its silly.
  15. The thing that bugs me the most, is the lack of consistency across the rules depending on "where" you are on the field. If he caught that inbounds, it's a catch. If he were in the field of play, the ground cant cause a fumble. The TY dive where the nose of the football goes in the endzone is a touchdown, even if he doesnt control the ball to the ground, because the "instant" the ball breaks the plane in possession, it's a touchdown. For the Ebron call, one foot, one elbow and possession- but because he doesnt control it all the way to the ground they call incomplete. It's a bit ludicrous for me, and they need to fix the rules to be consistent.
