Walk On

Walk On (1/6)



  1. After watching the Monday night game, the colts will not beat either of these teams. Anyone thinking otherwise is not being realistic. Our downfall will be defense. Can't apply enough pressure with 4 and our failure to stop the pass will be our undoing. Off topic but can't help myself, the announcers were abysmal.
  2. Well, I personally do not know what's best for all parties involved, but would you believe Costanzo(sp). He was asked his opinion of Nelson playing LT at a high level. He stated with out a doubt he could and would work at it to be the best. I believe he also said he could be a better LT then himself. Take this for what you think it says but he did say it in a interview either right before retirement or his last interview. Can't remember which. I will say if Nelson can play LT well then that goes a long way for the Colts. Just something to ponder about.
  3. Lack of execution my friend. When needed in the clutch it was failure. It was not all on Rivers.
  4. Reich did not lose this game! A lack of playmakers did! Reich deciding to go for it on 4th and goal was not executed. The play was there to be made but Rivers overthrew Pittman. That was not on Reich it was on Rivers. Loss of 7 points. The thirty something yard missed field goal. Did anyone think Reich did something to make specs. miss! No! It was on specs. Again, lack of execution. Loss of 3 points. The only thing I saw Reich call that I think was weird was a 2 point conversion call that failed. Gain of 1 point. All other plays called that failed the desired result was a lack of execution by Colts players. The play challenge was someone up stairs telling Frank he needs to challenge the play. That call cannot be placed on Frank because i'm sure he was relying on some one who had a better vision of the play than he did. IMHO, Reich is having to shoulder to much blame for this game and in fact all year. It's not the play calls or the lack there of or the decision making. It's the lack of consistent playmakers. When the head coach calls whatever play at whatever time in the game it's the players who need to execute. The Colts players are not consistent enough to make plays when they are absolutely needed in crucial situations. Therefore, we need not only talented players but players who are mentally tough. Now, I believe the Colts have these type of players but not enough in key positions. Therefore, I think every play called that doesn't work as intended has to be distributed to whomever and not all on the coach. Execution in football is everything for success. Lack of it has players sitting home and fans complaining. And by the way, some fans on here are clueless and it's quite evident don't know football! Therfore, according to me adding up and subtracting all the above points, we should of won 33 to 27! The reason we lost by 3 is because of execution!!!!
  5. Believe me when I say, if it wasn't for Rivers the Colts would not of played today. To state that Rivers played terrific today is incorrect. Case in point, 4th and goal, overthrew Pittman for a sure fire TD. Going for it on 4th down and failing to execute is not on Frank it was on Rivers failure to get it done. The play was there to be made and was chocked. I mean it's just not Rivers it's near about the whole team. When a play is crucial, more often than not, someone on the team fails to do their job which results in a undesirable situation. This team is not consistent enough yet to go further. Therefore, what this team lacks is playmakers. People who are mentally tough and talented enough to consistently make the plays that are needed to advance. My opinion Rivers should get another crack at it, but add more playmakers including him to step up in crucial situations.
  6. What would everyone's thoughts be if we converted J. Taylor to wide receiver. There's things to consider, current vision problem which maybe will be corrected with more playing time or not. I mean i hope it improves but there's no way of really knowing. It could possibly be a godsend to the Colts if it worked out. The man is big, tough, plays with a mean streak and is fast. He also can catch the ball. Can he hold onto it is the question. I think he has the intelligence to learn the wide position but don't know if he has the will to. There in lies the problem. Of course, if this worked out it would create a running back opening or not depending on how F. Reich utilized it. It possibly could shore up the receiver position. Can you imagine the possibilities, more speed at the wide position and another player with quickness like Hines and Harris for the trick plays. With Campbell hopefully returning soon, the speed at the wide receiver position would be very formidable. Also, we could resign Mack for next year to shore up the running back position but the Colts have to be assured the injury he sustained hasn't affected his speed and or his cutting ability. Anyway, it was a thought i have been mulling around since i'm on lockdown again. Please don't get me started on that subject! So, have at me and tell me your thoughts but please think about it before you have a knee jerk reaction.
  7. I would like to thank this poster for his well thought out posts in this forum. It's like a breathe of fresh air. I know this is probably not the place to do this but i felt compelled to do so. For you sir ... SALUTE!!!!
  8. LOL ..... You need to stop taking what other people say so personal.
  9. Yes, Ballard has talked about having a good back up. Where to you think we can find one.
  10. I think this signing, if it happens, goes with the narrative of Ballard kicking himself last year for letting vets go to soon. Leadership for the young players.
  11. Sir! With all do respect! I believe your misreading the tea leaves. You and the others dislike for Kelly is asinine. You pick and choose what you want to listen to and disregard the things that doesn't suit your taste. I believe you and others are going to be very disappointed. I believe Kelly is in the Colts future plans as long as he stays out of trouble and works hard and proves he belongs. If he doesn't then i believe he will be gone. The kid has some upside which can't be denied. Maybe you and the others need to learn how to forgive and accept. Kelly could become very good for this team. However, you and others want to disregard Kelly and never give the kid a chance! Pitiful!!! Very pitiful!!!
  12. I disagree ... What was alarming to me was the worse JB got, the team also got worse. What i mean by that is JB lost the team. Therefore, those wins you speak of are long gone with JB. This team needs swagger or confidence if you will to win consistently. That was lost last year. Maybe Rivers can instill confidence back to the team, i don't know, but JB or Hoyer will not. They both have to go and should of been gone by now. I have my doubts the Colts can win the SB regardless what they do this off season.
