  1. He had tons of time to throw the ball. He holds it too long.
  2. He has coached well if you think that giving JT one carry is a good idea.
  3. If hot rod hurt why didn’t we bring in a kicker for this game.
  4. I was a Baltimore Colts fan. Then they team left Baltimore and the Baltimore Colts no longer existed. So I cound no longer be a fan of the Baltimore Colts. During the years I supported the Baltimore Colts I never rooted against the Indianapolis Colts because they did not exist. When the Colts franchise moved to Indianapolis I became an Indianapolis Colts fan. I could never be a fan of both at the same time becasue they never existed in the same time period. On the other hand I am a fan of both. I do not understand the question.
  5. It was 4th down and 1 inch maybe 2. You should never put in that situation. The objective is to keep the ball. What most people do not understand is a punt is a turnover. Sometimes you have to punt but there are multiple studies that show that punting the ball is one of the worst decisions in football. Now the play calling is a differnent story. I certainly do not like the plays we chose in the 4th and short situations. That needs to be improved. But punting the ball away when the odds of converting are over 80% is foolish in the long run.
  6. I do not think that we will miss on Paye we get just what the should have gotten. A player with good ability that is not a pass rusher. At Michigan paye had 11 sacks in 3 years. Thats about 4 sacks a year against college competition. Why should one expect him to be better in the pros. Just like Turay. we got an athletic player who under performs. Low sack output and injured all the time. He plays just like that in the pros. Same with Lewis and Parris Campbell. We are constantly told that we are drafting players who really are better then they show in college and they simply are not better. They are the same.
  7. Not playing in Frank's offense. Do not forget Stachan made 2 key catches in game one and the reward was he got benched.
  8. Hopefully the GM and Owner love and respect their children but please do not use that as a reason to make them the head coach.
  9. Draft the best OT. Hard to get those out of the top 10
  10. If we could make it work I would trade Wentz if possible. Not that he has done anything wrong but he is what everyone says. He is a QB that holds the ball too long. Does not make the checkdown and therefore is subject to injury. Get a placeholder until we are able to get an up and coming QB from draft.
  11. Wentz was clearly unable to play yesterday. Playing Wentz eliminated any chance of winning even with a 3-0 turnover margin. You have to be concerned with the mindset that let Wentz play.
  12. I think that the biggest head scratcher is the the Colts continue to obtain players with obvious flaws and then are surprised that they play to the level of those flaws. Normally (a few exceptions) a players performance and history remain constant. We picked up backup tackles that were not very good and they are still not very good. We draft players with poor college performance and injury history and then we are surprised when they cannot perform or our constantly injured. We invest great Captial in a QB with a history of injury which is related to his holding on the ball too long and then we are shocked that he is injured. We say that we are going to rely on our running game then abandon the running game. We take one of best players such as Hines and use him one week and then the next week he does not touch the ball.
  13. Indianapolis is just 3 of 8 on its trips inside the red zone so far in 2021; the Colts rank 28th in the NFL in red-zone percentage.
  14. The biggest mistake would be losing the 1st round pick which may be top 5 or at least top 10. We cannot mess this up.
  15. Just so I understand what I am reading. We have 3 DE that were drafted in the 2nd Round and none of the 3 are good enough to start? We have a QB drafted in the 3rd round and after 2 years he is not good enough to rely on to start and play the whole game. We do not have any backup linemen? We have a 2nd round WR Pick that is always unable to play? We had to cut our 1st round safety pick. What is going on?
  16. IF Eason is not quailifed to be a back up QB after two years he should have ben cut and another QB brought in to be the backup.
  17. Taylor has been excellant i short yardage if given the chance. Our problem in short yardage has been poor formations that lead to little or no push. Count the defenders vs. the lineman and you will see that we are overwhelmed at the poin of attack. Bunch offensive formations are bad formations for running. Mack has clearly not recovered and had little or no burst yesterday not at his previous level.
  18. The bottom line yesterday is we lost for 3 reasons. 1. Defense was not ready to play. (see 2nd half). The defense not being ready to play has been a continuing theme. 2. The offensive line was terrible. This team is built on the offensive line (i agree with this concept). If the offensive line plays well we have plenty of playmakers. The question is what happened? Clearly Ballard did not do a good job at LT. Quenton and Kelley were either hurt or on Covid so they missed most of training camp. The big concern is Smith. Is he going to take the big money and reqress (which can happen) or was something else going on. 3. Total lack of offensive discipline and play calling. We had the ball several times inside the 30 in the second half and got zero points. Bad 4th down play calls and the fumbled snap are inexcusable.
  19. It looks like he was hurt when the lions player rolled his knee after he was already down.
  20. Does Marlon make the team? Has not shown a lot in preseason. Would probably be the fourth back right now and he does not play special teams.
  21. It’s not a dropped pass. Tight coverage because we cannot throw downfield.
  22. COVID attacks the heart long term.
  23. Eason was much faster in getting the ball out over Sam. Sam was hesitant which is why he ran the ball. I was watching Charlotte on their local station and they were commenting that Sam had open receivers but was running instead.
