    The titans gave up an average of 216 passing yards a game last year.   That is a legit secondary.    

    Without question, and they deserve credit too but Jacoby could have played better on Sunday and I don’t think people are wrong for pointing that out.

    Who cares?  We won the game.    How did the Bengals and cardinals do with those inspiring passing yards?

    I don’t think Chad should start but yes the Colts won Sunday but they aren’t going to win a lot of games if Jacoby is below 150 yards passing for the game and around 40 yards passing in the second half.  Even Reich said they need more production out of the passing game.  He also said they will get it and I believe him.  

     

    I think Jacoby started seeing ghosts after his INT.  Some good film study and coaching this week should fix that.  This is a chance for Jacoby to grow.  He’s going to have to for the Colts to commit to him as the guy beyond this season.  

     

    I dont think it’s a sure thing Kelly would have done better Sunday and he could have done worse if he turned the ball over more like young QBs tend to do.  

     

    Jacoby is the guy this season and yes some here need to some to terms with that but at the same time it’s fair for others to point out legit areas that Jacoby has to get better without being treated like they are attacking Jacoby either.

    Here's the rub...if you truly believe he shouldn't be kicking in the NFL anymore, what is he doing trotting his self out on the field?  If he knows he's done then just hand in the notice and walk away.  Andrew did it and I didn't blame him (yeah the timing sucked, but...).

    I think he tried too and the Colts talked him out of it and got to his competitive side.

    I'm 100% positive Ballard and Irsay are on board.   This wasn't a Frank Reich decision

    I am sure Frank had a say but I could easily believe Irsay over ruled them or they are all in agreement here.

    That's three bad games in a row.  I'm not sure what's going on.  Imo, you don't fall so fast.  It's not like he's been losing distance over the years.  He just seemed to fall off a cliff.  

    That’s normally how it goes for kickers at the end.  They just lose it.

    I agree.  Kelly needs to go on the 53.  With injuries to Big Ben and Brees today and Wentz being out a bit tonight because of an injury it would be smart to hold on to him.  Even if he makes it to the PS, which I doubt, he could still be signed off of it.  I think he is a valuable commodity whose value could be increasing each week.  

    I think he will stick and even if Desir’s injury is serious they will be able to juggle bodies to keep Kelly IMO.

    You really going to trust tell against the falcons.  He is still way to green. Only reason he didn’t go to the PS is they were afraid of losing him.

    Tell would still be the fourth corner and they might not have a choice that’s what injuries do.

    Why do fans on here constantly compare us to NE and what they would or wouldn’t do? I mean I get it, they’ve got one hell of a dynasty going but if you want us to be like them so bad, go root for them. (Not directed at you Mr,Debonair, just some fans in general that constantly say we need to copy NE)

    I think because fans want to win and they look at New England and go I want to win like they do so let’s be what they are.  The reality is that it’s very hard to copy another team because you don’t have the players and coaches they do.  Also given the way New England does things at times I’d prefer the Colts not be like them.

    I dont think so. Teams fear TY Hilton. And we also have Parris Campbell who can stretch it.

     

    If that's what they want to do, I say knock yourself out. I like those matchups.

    Yes but until you make them pay for those matchups teams will try it because it made Jacoby very uncomfortable today and it’s the best way to stop the run.  So that’s what I am saying let’s see the Colts make teams pay for it.

    I listened on the radio, so did not hear the comment.  But I question their judgement here.

     

    I do know the primary target's distance downfield and the # of steps the QB takes is in lockstep.  Say it is medium depth dig.  QB takes 5 step drop, hitch, and releases the pass to a practiced spot. If they guy looks blanketed as the play develops, the QB must move on in the progression.  Hit the first open man. Brissett had (at least one or more) coverage sack(s), while waiting for a receiver to 'come open'.  QB's often don't get an extra 1-2 seconds after their drop back.

     

    I'd rather see him dump off rather than get a sack or, especially, a strip sack while 'holding the ball too long (what many complained about tonight already!)

    He had time on this play and archaletta, whose name I just completely misspelled, showed it in pretty good detail that Jacoby just didn’t stick with him long enough as TY was coming wide open just a few years beyond the check down guy.  

     

    With that said Jacoby does hold the ball too long times and today it showed up after the INT.  I think again he got fooled and wasn’t trusting what he was seeing and didn’t want to make another mistake.  In other words he was thinking too much which lead to holding the ball too long.  

     

    That should be fixable with some good coaching and film study this week.

    The titans have a elite secondary. Not every team can do that.

    No but every team can stack the box and play tight man on your WRs and challenge them at the line.  That’s what the Colts are going to see until they start going down the field.  They are going to pretty much beg the Colts to throw deep on them.  The Colts will need to take advantage of that.

    I have zero inside info.   But it looks to me Jacoby is afraid to turn the ball over.    He is lacking confidence.   I'm positive that will change

    Yeah after he threw that INT I noticed he got really indecisive.  I think he got fooled on that play (great play by the Titan) and he was scared to do it again.  That’s where Frank and the QB coach have to get with him watching film and say trust what you see.  The guy made a great play you have to put it out of your mind.

    His yards per attempt is the only thing any one can criticize him for at this point.    But if you remember,   Luck had a poor yards per attempt starting last season.    Let's give the guy a chance to settle in.   Anyone thinking Kelly would be better is nonsense

    Kelly isn’t the answer.  However, Jacoby has to do more.  Teams are going to see what the Titans did today and start doing it more to him until he shows them they have to respect the deep ball.  The Colts aren’t going to win many games if Jacoby has halves like he did in the second half today where he had close to 40 yards passing.  With that said, Jacoby is going to get the full season to show if he can continue his growth.  Hopefully he does.
