    Defense was worse than trash today.

     

    Manning would've had a hard time keeping the game close.

    Yes they were but this thread isn’t about the defense and it doesn’t change that the Brissett was not good today either.

  2. The guys didn’t tackle.  Bigger lines blow the Colts dline off the ball.  No pass rush means all a zone does is making them take a long time to score.  

     

    The only thing you kinda feel decent about is that Leonard hasn’t played in two weeks and his presence should help but he’s not going to fix all these problems by himself.

  3. Drops didn’t help but this wasn’t his best game either.  Once again the chunk plays were missing and the Raiders were sitting on the run and had the two deep passes the Colts tried well covered.  Not Reich’s best day calling the plays but the drops were the biggest issue.

    And fewer interceptions! 

    I’ll take today’s Jacoby over Andrew (ducks and hides)

     

    what I mean by that is that Jacoby was getting the ball out fast, taking what the defense gives him rather than forcing things, and was pinpoint on his throws (loften did a great job highlighting that and why it matters on the broadcast).  Those weren’t always Andrew’s strong suits.

    I wish I could have seen the game...could only catch it on the radio in the car...but sounds like JB was great (I did see the Pascal TD highlight...which was quite nice). 

     

    Seems like Reich opened up the playbook a bit more as well...and let JB sling it.

    He had too the falcons stacked the box pretty much all game.  Also the line struggled a little more in pass protection than they normally do.  Jacoby was able to offset a lot of it by getting the ball out fast but he was under pressure a lot, especially in the second half.  

     

    Still the way you beat that is to do what the Colts did.  Get the ball out fast and go down the field.

    1) I wouldn’t say he “nailed” his kicks.  The FG hit the upright and fortunately doinked the right way.

     

    2) I hope he does well, too.  It’s hard to win close games in the NFL (and all 3 of ours have been) without a reliable kicker.

     

    3) But neither that nor his game today ultimately affect where I stand.

    I guess I should be clear about what I meant when I said nailed.  I meant just that he hit them.  I’ve been noticing during this slump his kicks are falling off towards the left towards the end other than the last miss last week which I think was just him over correcting.  I don’t know if that’s leg strength thing or a mechanics thing but i would bet that is what Adam has been working on.

    what is most impressive about this game is they stopped our run game and jacoby was able to put it on his back and eat them up with the passing game. that answered all the questions of people thinking if we ever got the running game stopped we'd be in trouble.  jacoby heard what you were thinking and he threw up the middle finger!

    Which is exactly how I said teams were going to try to play the Colts after last week.  Stack the box and dare them to throw it down the field.  I am glad Jacoby took advantage.  Now teams will have to go back to the drawing board.  What was also impressive is that he did it in the second half without TY.  That wasn’t just good for Jacoby but the young receivers too.

    None. LOL 

     

    I wouldn’t call JMV a reporter really, he has a local radio show. He does seem to have an inside source and is usually pretty accurate when he drops something.

     

    Holder, Keefer, etc aren’t that good to me. They don’t ask good questions. They don’t seem to have reliable sources. They are just kind of there. And no, the subscription to the athletic is not worth paying for just to see what Holder has to say. 

    Right there is a difference between a reporter and someone who is paid to give you their opinion for a living.  One is paid to give you facts and leave their opinion out of it.  The other is paid to take facts and use them to form their opinion and give them to you.  

     

    Without getting into a whole thing we live a society that values opinion more than fact thus media puts more people on who give you their opinion not so much facts.  That’s where sports talk radio comes from.

    Holder did nothing wrong. All he did was tweet what Vinny told him. 

    Which said NOTHING about retirement.  Everyone, myself included, took it that way.  That’s on the reader.
