    Some Day After Thoughts to Share.....

    This. The Rams acquired all kinds of talented but not choir boy players. Last I looked they are doing just fine. Most players are not looking to rock the boat, especially when you win. It seems like many here want these guys to attend Sunday School and be NFL players.

    I don't think supplying a roster with arguably the two best players in the NFL at their positions is buying a locker room. We have the money. We have to spend the money. We are a good team now. Adding them makes us much much better. Luck is not getting any younger. To not even attempt to bring these two guys in is imo doing a big disservice to the team. Guys like Bell and AB don't grow on trees. So tired of this "you can't bring in FA's they will disrupt team chemistry" mantra so many here seem to have. These are grown men. Trust me Luck would welcome both with open arms.

    Exactly. Saints have Brees, Thomas, Kamara, and others. Pats have..well we know who they have. Chiefs have Mahomes, Kelce, had Hunt, and their great wr's. Rams have so many weapons. We have....Luck (when he is playing well) and.....Hilton??? Bell and AB would make us SB favs imo. The goal of this is to win the SB right? So we get a good 2-3 years out of each and that allows us time for Lucks prime to win SBs now AND grow some youngsters via the draft. Those that say no Bell or no AB because of.....reasons......not really sure why. WE CAN AFFORD IT. I would take both of them in a heartbeat. And the thing is you can get them both for a total of maybe a second and a third IN TOTAL. We aren't playing catholic choir boys on our team here. We are playing grown men NFL players. And as I said, we HAVE to spend this salary cap money. I would rather pay guys like Bell and AB who are true stars then overpay some of our own just to meet the salary cap.

    Remember the Colts HAVE to spend their salary cap money either this coming year or the next. They have something like $100 M to spend. Who on the Colts is worth spending $100 M on besides a select few? So I think those saying CB doesn't spend the money this coming off season on players like Bell or AB might be in for a surprise. Especially considering how close we are now.

    Andrew’s poor short throws

    Slow motion. That is exactly how I would label his passing motion, his throws, the ball speed, even his demeanor lately. He is not throwing the ball like an NFL quarterback. More like a HS Qb. Lob city.

    San Diego (+4) at New England (1-13-19)

    Well I think it is safe to say the Colts would have gotten destroyed today. The Pats came to play. I'm actually glad we played and got beat pretty soundly by KC compared to what might have happened here. How do the Pats do it every year? Crazy. The Chargers are a good team being made to look like a bad college team.

    I didn't think he played that well versus the Giants. The Titans early he played really good.

    Yeah the big tell to me was Luck never really went downfield yesterday other than that one pass to Hilton late, and even that was more of a lob rather than a throw. Something ain't right.

    Yeah I made that deer in the headlights look comment. My wife, who knows very little about football but who is very good at reading people, said he looked stunned and out of it even at the start of the game. I wonder if he was sick. I was sick with the flu from Christmas through NY and I can't imagine playing football being that way. I had to bowl in one league and could barely do it. Otherwise I didn't leave bed. So if he did have the flu, I could see why he was so out of it. That being said, his stats have really fallen off the past 6 weeks so odds are he just has lost confidence for whatever reasons.

    Andrew’s poor short throws

    Here are Lucks stats this year. This goes along with that I said earlier in another thread and the game thread yesterday. He started the year slow, as to be expected, but then for about 8 weeks really picked it up and he was firing the ball with authority. And then about week 12 or so, I started to notice a big drop in velocity and he started to guide the ball. His Qb rating went way down as a result and it never really got better. In face the past 7 quarters he was as bad as he was all year. Reminds me a lot of a pitcher who can't find the strike zone and starts aiming it. Andrew Luck stats Game stats Game CMP% YDS TD INT Rating 1/12 @ Chiefs 52.8 203 1 0 78.8 1/5 @ Texans 59.4 222 2 1 88.3 12/30 @ Titans 68.6 285 3 1 109.8 12/23 vs Giants 66.0 357 2 1 94.0 12/16 vs Cowboys 59.3 192 0 0 81.1 12/9 @ Texans 65.9 399 2 1 103.6 12/2 @ Jaguars 63.5 248 0 1 66.8 11/25 vs Dolphins 81.1 343 3 2 109.8 11/18 vs Titans 79.3 297 3 0 143.8 11/11 vs Jaguars 72.4 285 3 1 123.5 10/28 @ Raiders 71.0 239 3 0 125.6 10/21 vs Bills 73.9 156 4 0 131.5 10/14 @ Jets 53.5 301 4 3 77.8 10/4 @ Patriots 64.4 365 3 2 84.4 9/30 vs Texans 64.5 464 4 0 108.5 9/23 @ Eagles 62.5 164 1 0 79.6 9/16 @ Redskins 67.7 179 2 2 77.2 9/9 vs Bengals 73.6 319 2 1 93.2

    And change his arm angle like Stafford, Mahomes, and Rivers do. Very odd how someone as smart as Luck continues to make the same mistakes over and over. When you hear him interviewed he never really says anything. Just "respect the process, get better, work all week blah blah blah". Yet I am still seeing him not progress to the level he should be at. Hopefully this off season he can strengthen the shoulder and make some real progress.
  12. Colts would have gotten annihilated today haha. Would not have been pretty.

    Andrew’s poor short throws

    Hopefully that is all it is, and the lack of arm strength lowered his confidence and why he started to guide the ball and not throw it. The past 7 quarters they have scored what? 1 offensive touchdown and had very few drives. I didn't see any ingenuity either. Of course a lot of the blame I place on Luck as he has played horrible the past 7 quarters.

    Reality check

    The fact that there were no passes to Hines for the second week in a row, when it was obvious the wrs couldn't get open...is inexcusable. Just terrible play calling. The past 7 quarters they have scored what? 1 offensive touchdown and had very few drives. I didn't see any ingenuity either. Of course a lot of the blame I place on Luck as he has played horrible the past 7 quarters.

    Andrew’s poor short throws

    I agree with this. I didn't see anything to Hines.....which is 100% inexcusable. Same thing happened last week. No rollouts. No quick hitters. Just drop back ala Bruce Arian days and wait. There was no offensive ingenuity at all......if you aren't going to show some great plays in the playoffs, odds are you don't have them to do. Not good.
