    Favorite Colt of All Time

    I would say Bob Sanders, he was really incredible.
  2. Don’t understand why Toub being a Special Teams coach with no head coaching experience is such s negative. Wasn’t BB’s background in special teams? In fact, his team’s special teams play is one of th reasons they are so consistently good. I’m not pulling for Toub, but I wouldn’t discount him for his specific coordinating background.

    Notes On The Colts Choking

    Wouldn’t starting the game off so well be an indication of a good game plan? IE good from the coaching staff?

    Was Game One The Gauge For The Season?

    It never is.

    Another Wasted Season

    People really need to take a deep breath and relax for a minute. We are a rebuilding team that had sustained injuries to some of our best players and turned the ball over 3 times, with a fourth fumble leading to a safety. That incredibly bad series of events will lead us to being blown out, this is what we know right now. If you were expecting a win in this game then I'm sorry but it seemed like Andrew Luck being out meant that the first part of this season was going to be rough. Look around our division, the Texans gave up 10 sacks and lost to the Jaguars 29-7. The Jaguars are also the only other team that won today. Even if this is a forgettable season, isn't it ok to potentially get a healthy Andrew Luck paired with whatever Ballard can cook up in the offseason?

    It's worth pointing out that, despite leaving a touchdown out there, that is a pretty good response from Tolzien.

    Isn't Turbin our short yardage specialist too? We used Mack twice on the 2.

    Isn't someone on staff there to literally just watch for opportunities to challenge? Did we just rush the next play too much for him to buzz and push for the challenge?
  10. It's worth looking at offensive weapons too when comparing quarterbacks. Manning seemed to develop the same kinds of receivers in his career (Decker, Harrison, Clark, Wayne, Collie, etc all had similar skill sets) while Brady did play with two physically dominant players (Moss and Gronkowski) the likes that Manning never had.

    Chuck Pagano complaints (merge)

    Inconsistency is definitely a personnel problem and a coaching problem. We don't have good depth and we have glaring weaknesses. In some games these get exposed and no amount of coaching is going to cover these up. Pittsburgh was a personnel problem, Kansas City was a personnel problem, etc. Both of our coordinators are in their first years (full year in Chud's case), they need some time to get the correct personnel to run their schemes. Take away Vontae Davis (which has happened this year) and Monachino is essentially working with the talent defensively of an expansion team (some young players but a lot of aging, average players) and I honestly don't know how he is supposed to make it work. I also don't understand your complaint. Players easily could have not shown up for the Minnesota game, clearly the players respect Pagano enough to play hard for him, that's still a sign of good coaching and something Pagano should be proud of. Overall this is a problem where clearly the personnel is not strong enough and the coaching not clever enough, to lay it all on coaching is wrong.
