    There's absolutely no way I can criticize a GM in the same season that his stud QB quit two weeks before the start of the season.


    The fact that they have 6 wins and have had a chance to win just about every game means he built a pretty good team.  

    I need to add that I'm typically very critical of this team, but I have no idea how anyone can blame Ballard.  


    He and Reich were dealt a terrible hand to start the season and the Colts have proven that they've done a pretty good job so far building an actual team.

    When the D gives up 31 points and 150 yards rushing, I'm hesitant to blame the guy who threw for 300 yards for the loss.


    You guys aren't actually mad at Brissett.  you're mad because we lost.  Brissett is just the convenient scapegoat.

    The defense didn't give up 31 points first of all.  


    Special teams created a 16 point swing (3 missed FG's with one blocked for a TD).  


    It was their fault we lost.  

    Brissett wasn't good, but he was only a small factor in us losing.

    Luck career in NFL:

    2012-Lost afc South title 

    2013-Won title 

    2014-Won title 

    2015-Lost title 

    2016-Lost title 

    2017-Did not play 

    2018-lost title 



    Never beat Brady or Big Ben. 


    DOESN'T seem generational to me. 


    I hate pinning wins and losses solely on QB's.  "QB wins" is the dumbest stat in football.


    Football is a team game. Luck had some part in those losses, but the team around him performed far worse.

    This was my issue.  

    The Colts deserved to lose, but the NFL is a joke. The refs are ridiculously terrible.  


    I'm done watching.  

    I'll follow the Colts on my score app, but this has become unwatchable and it isn't the Colts' fault.

    I still scoff at you. 

    Fouts was right because the Pascal PI Was a gift. It had no chance of being caught. There were other favorable calls the Colts got. 

    The calls against Indy that were truly bad were the Tell and Okereke ones  The Leonard penalties were deserved. The one at half was simply a stupid play on his part. No need for hit. The guy was stopped and going no further. 

    On top of all that, AV hits a couple of kicks and Indy wins.  

    there was no home cooking from the refs. 

    Do you really think that personal foul where Leonard pushed the ball carrier out of bounds was a legit penalty?    


    You can't be serious.

    Never heard the whistle and it was more on shoulder than head so sorry bullcrap call not gonna agree with you.



    Certainly don't hear a whistle until about a half second before Leonard is in there.  

    And if the penalty was for the helmet to helmet, then these types of plays need to be reviewable too.  

    His fasemask literally brushed the receiver's helmet.  


    That was a gifted 3 points from the refs.  Just one of many terrible flags that ultimately cost us the game.  


    The Colts shouldn't have to play against the refs too.

    But nobody will. I agree with you though.

    Idk. I've gotten closer every season.  

    Used to watch just about every NFL game.  

    Now I follow the Colts on my app and this forum.  


    Idk how much longer I can even do that.  


    There's gotta be plenty of others.  


    I love the Colts, but the NFL just isn't entertaining anymore.

    Hoyer's pick 6 was not the refs' fault.  The defense giving up 6 yards a carry to Edmunds is not he refs' fault.  The OL not being able to block is not the refs' fault.

    No NFL team plays perfect.  

    The refs decide way to many games on phantom penalties.  


    It's a problem.

    Officiating was really bad (that "penalty" on Okereke was egregious), but at the end of the day, the Colts didn't execute.  Bad officiating is gonna happen.  Good teams can overcome it with good execution

    They can sometimes.  


    But you absolutely cannot beat NFL refereeing. The teams are too close to overcome game changing, egregious penalties.  

    The refs are terrible and the rules are terrible.

    Yes it was bad. You know what was worse? Our entire team. We kept beating ourselves at every opportunity. We are an extremely average team with decent coaching, which has gotten us to 5-3. We have 0 playmakers on either side of the ball, Leonard has regressed, our O line is in a funk, our cornerbacks play with no technique, and we obviously have a HUGE problem at kicker. This is a 8-9 win team, 2nd in the division, and maybe a wild card spot. 

    I'm going to go ahead and blame officiating.  

    We didn't play perfect either though.

    I agree, there have been some very odd calls, but we've also not helped ourselves.

    The refs have to be better.  

    It's why we'll lose.  

    We didn't play a perfect game, but the refs ruined the Colts chances.  


    I know it's taboo to say that but it's true today.  


    You cannot beat NFL refereeing.
