    Ballard has expressed that Eason isn't likely to be ready to start this coming year. I expect the Colts to make a big move via trade or in the draft at this point.

    Yeah, I'm big on Eason but we haven't seen him play in the NFL and we wouldn't until and if there's a preseason. So we have to make a move way before that so unfortunately will probably bring in Stafford or Wentz and I don't like either one. But it's probably our only options. But will they take a one year contract Wentz might after a disastrous year in Philly.

    It’s amazing how tightlipped this franchise is about Eason. We didn’t have a preseason or training camp to watch him but you have to wonder if he going to be our next QB or just fade away

    Yes, it's very interesting I hope he's in line to take starter position. Because he has great talent but can it translate to the NFL level only time will tell and again the whole thing will be interesting for sure.

    I like Reich a lot and thinks he’s a good coach. Is he a Super Bowl-caliber Coach? Maybe, maybe not. But then, who is available that is a coach of that quality? I don’t suppose The Hoodie would be too interested in coaching us lol

    I agree

    Sad. How the hell do you only give the lead back averaging 4 yards a carry only 2 carries after the half when you’re up by 17? These beat writers trying to tow the line with this stacked box narrative can miss me with that. 

    The media in Indy is soft we all know it they like Reich so they write nice stuff about him and it's not good writing. They don't say the facts which is not good reading for those of us who care about this stuff like me.

    The problem with Reich is no adjustments. Change your personell to a big run package. Stop treating a bad RT as if they are as good as your starting RT.  Where was short screen passes to loosen up the box. 

    I believe that Reich is a good coach but he makes to many mistakes and every week he admits to it. I mean admitting it is very honorable but it cost us games at times and that is inexcusable in my opinion

    Lots of good responses in this thread.

    I will stick with coaching/play calling.  Both offense and defense.  The Colts blitz the second least in the NFL.   Since pass rush is many peoples major weakness, it doesn't make sense that more blitz packages are not put in.  

    has the soft zone worked on defense at all this season.  It seems Reich and Eberflus use it for at least a half each game.  It always seems to be a disaster.  Heck, that started in the first game (loss to Jags).  

    I totally agree it seems sometimes there clueless to the insufficiencies to this scheme it almost like there trying to loss or something I know there not but come on.

  6. Mine is coaching at least the play calling is terrible in my opinion. I mean it for both sides of the ball the defensive play calling is lustrous and I'm not a fan at of Eberflus as others seem to be. But I put this solely on Reich he's the head coach he's the boss of the players and the other coaches and I put this on him. He doesn't seem to want to change anything either. I really like Reich and have desperately wanted this to workout but it hasn't to this point. I wonder what Ballard really thinks because were never going to know he's not going to tell in public and maybe not even Reich but I'd like to know.

    Problem is down 3 tackles we still had a comfortable lead and the coaching squandered our lead....

    I actually agree with you Eberflus called that soft zone in the second half and any QB is going to pick us apart when we play that we were 5 yards off the receivers. And Reich kept passing when we needed to run the ball.

    With a 17 pt lead it wasn’t a bad decision. The issue is the offense melted down because Reich doesn’t understand situational football.

    As far as the offense goes missing are two tackles hurt us in this game. How many times was Rivers sacked at least 5 and was pressured many times which caused some bad throws. I think at full strength this would have been a different game.

    I said it early in the 3rd that all Ben had to do was throw deep and a flag would get thrown. Too obvious to me, if a REF is going to alter a game, please do a better job. I have watched this game for 45 years so I am not some dumb dumb when something is obvious. The non-calls were just as bad on offensive PI that would've been a pick 6, just cute.

    Wasn't that pass interference on TY when he fell.

    The only thing that worries me is Pittsburgh exoctic blitzes and would the bulldozer be ready at right tackle for it. 

    No put Pinter at guard and the bulldozer at right tackle. 

    I call Nelson the bulldozer

    I live 20min west of Lafayette but for some reason I get the Champaign station.  It’s caused me to miss two games this year and looking like this one as well.  My neighbor has an antenna and he can’t pickup the local CBS station so that’s not an option. Could go to the bar but I live in a tiny town and last time I was there the hillbilly customers were tanked at 1pm yelling racist junk at the TV bc nascar was also on.  To each their own but I’m not paying for food and drinks to deal with that nonsense. 

    I bet you need DirecTV

    Our pass defense does concern me at times, really the only game we have been beat bad in was the 2nd Tennessee game. Watson is tough to contain so he was making big plays on us in the 2 games we played them. I hope Big Ben has another stinker.

    I agree but hopefully we tighten that up against Pittsburgh were going to have to or Big Ben with eat us alive.

    Are there only three categories?   Great, average, bad?

     

    Isn't there room for very good, good, above average....   can’t we be any of those?   
     

    Not sure we’re great in anything.  But I don’t see much average, either.   I see lots of the other choices for the Colts. 

    I agree were not great in anything but not average either. But the good news is no team is either except the Chiefs there great on offense.

    Oh... I agree and I'm really not sure I wanted Pitt to lose that game . I was just making the point that Vegas was not sucked in by that undefeated start. 

    Yeah, I wanted Pittsburgh to win that game now we will be playing them angry that's not good.
