  1. And even with lots of teams having kicking problems, Vinatieri's 14-of-19 on extra points and 12-of-17 on field goals are both the worst percentage in the NFL. https://www.footballdb.com/stats/stats.html?mode=K
  2. This isn't just about a game-deciding kick or two unfortunately. Vinatieri is 14-of-19 on extra points this year. How can that be happening and people aren't going to talk about it?
  3. I think Doyle's best quality is that he's a great blocker of large, athletic defenders and a good receiver. The Colts offense is less predictable to the defense when he is in the game as compared to a TE who is more of a receiving or blocking specialist. It's not so easy to find guys who excel at both.
  4. You've got a weak * schtick going here. After four games, Mack stands fifth in the NFL in rushing yards.
  5. I guess that's why the Colts haven't won any games last year or this year. I'm not a huge fan of how much zone the Colts play absent a more effective pass rush, but if you're suggesting that all zone coverages are prevent defenses, that doesn't seem accurate. The philosophy behind the Cover 2 zone, which the Colts play, is to reduce the number of defenders that are needed to stop the deep pass threat, thus leaving more defenders closer to the line of scrimmage. This, in theory, provides quicker run support and helps with the short pass and timing routes. https://www.liveabout.com/understanding-the-cover-2-zone-1335507
  6. Speaking of words that will come back to haunt you, aren't you the savant that predicted Nyheim Hines will roll up more total yards this season than Marlon Mack? So far, Mack has 299 rushing + 26 receiving = 325. Hines has 25 + 35 = 60. Still think so? And yes, Mack is better than you give him credit for.
  7. I'm glad the Colts were able to sign Chad to the practice squad and I look forward to seeing what's next for him. But, I don't think the Chad Fan Club should take any shots about what they have or haven't heard about Jacoby's intelligence when there's so much to be heard about Swaaag.

  8. Yes, you are right, of course. Here's a quote: "I have a very high regard for this young man. He’s an awesome kid. He’s very bright. He has zero personal issues. He’s a very dedicated, committed guy.’’ https://nypost.com/2019/09/08/why-jacoby-brissett-has-a-big-backer-in-bill-parcells/
  9. Well, if the quarterback play isn't up to your standards, you should absolutely give up on the team immediately and assume they'll never win a big game. Great call. Maybe you'd find the Patriots more interesting.
  10. The Colts first two games have both been exciting, close games on the road against good teams. Can't understand why a fan of the team would be disinterested. I'm very interested to see how this team progresses. Also, when a so-called fan calls a Colts player garbage, it generally says more about the fan than the player, in my opinion.
  11. But wouldn't this probably mean another team would pick him up in the next week or two anyway? What's the point then? That the Colts can still add him to the 53 later or that they have him in case Brissett gets hurt Sunday?
  12. Some of the Kelly fans ought to love this take: Colts waive Chad Kelly in unsurprising move https://horseshoeheroes.com/2019/09/18/colts-waive-chad-kelly-unsurprising-move/
  13. This is an unusual situation. A 25-year-old who seems to have the talent to get the job done, but because of a history of getting in trouble that has repeatedly delayed his progress through college and the start of this pro career doesn't yet have any pass attempts in an NFL regulation game. Can you think of any quarterback who at age 25 didn't have a single NFL pass attempt, yet went on to a successful career?
  14. But should the Colts trust a dude who calls himself Swag, full of talent, yet at age 25 hasn't even thrown his first pass in an NFL regular season game? I Made This Mistake of Trusting A Guy Known has Swag Kelly By: Tully Corcoran | October 23, 2018 1:19 pm ET "Boy oh boy do I have egg on my face now. Since before this season even started, I’ve been banging the drum for Chad Kelly to be the starting quarterback in Denver. He looked great in the preseason! On Sept. 18, I wrote that it was going to be Chad “Swag” Kelly time in six weeks. Multiple people tried to warn me not to write that column. “Never trust a juco guy,” they said. “The guy goes by ‘Swag’, dude,” they said. “It’s not going to work out.” But I was a juco guy. I couldn’t turn my back on one of my own. Besides, what does a nickname have to do with anything? It was all lined up. Keenum was throwing more interceptions than touchdowns and the media and fans were talking more and more about Kelly. Hell, a radio station in Denver asked to interview me on the air about this. And I’d like to point out that technically speaking I was right when I said we were six weeks from Swag Kelly time. I just didn’t realize I was talking about time behind bars. https://thebiglead.com/2018/10/23/i-made-this-mistake-of-trusting-a-guy-known-as-swag-kelly/ He Does Bring a Different Type of Swag! "I have it all. I might not have the same mojo as your basic quarterback, but I feel like I bring a different type of swag to the team and the players around me," Kelly told MMQB. "I have friends all across that field. When I go out there on the field, I play with a different attitude that you usually don't see in a quarterback. I play with a swag they've never seen before." http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000728175/article/ole-miss-chad-kelly-draft-me-for-my-swag Swag has a rap song about himself! At 0:42: "My momma birthed out a winner. I'm just looking for dinner!"
  15. So you're leaving open the possibility . . . that Brissett will have more natural QB ability in the future than he does currently?
