Nice first post.

Sorry... I had this same name on the last forum.. Just been lurking since then.

I just dont understand the over-the-top negativity and pessimism. This game was always a long shot. It would have been great to get the upset, but what is important is that the team continues to get better each week. Rookies are going to make mistakes.

Wonder why Tom is still out there?

Little man syndrome or something? I get making a statement, but why risk anything when this game is over.

He's paid to play QB for the NE Patriots.

The Colts could feel free to, I don't know, stop them?

This is tough to watch, but have people really forgotten that we were 2-14 last year? Yes this team has shown flashes of greatness and there is a lot to be excited about, but a rookie team, missing their head coach - getting blown out by NE isnt exactly a shocker or something to hang our heads about. We all (well, those of us who are honest) knew this was a possibility.

Learn from the mistakes and get better.

Exactly. Thank you.

What does that have to do with what I said? Lol.

I just questioned why risk an injury when this game is so blatantly over? Why are you acting like I said something about them running up the score? I just think they are clearly trying to send a message to us and the league, and I question if that's the smartest/safest decision.

Also backup QBs get payed as well, and are conveniently available for situations just like this one haha.

Go check my score prediction whre I say - 'if we lose turnover battle' in the thread, it's only a little worse in real life than i predicted. But I don't have to like the poor play and decisions our rookies make. I just understand and sometimes expect them. Just don't want them. :)

Ah, misinterpreted what you wrote. Sorry, I'm mad.

I'd have liked to see Brady at least get his uniform dirty today.

haha naw I probably could have phrased my thoughts more clearly, but I know it's the NFL. It's not a league for making friends and playing nice. You don't want them to score you stop them. Period.

I've just never understood how the advantages outplay the risks when you keep starters in when games are decided. Not just the Pats either. I thought the same thing about us when Freeney got hurt before our Saints Superbowl.

    • Agree. I think people underestimate the ability of coaches to tailor offenses towards their best players. This is especially true for the coaches that are actually good, which I think Arians is(even though I too have some thoughts on his offense and playcalling).    You might actually argue Ben and Luck especially were used the way they were by Arians precisely because they they can actually do it and can actually mitigate some of the drawbacks of playing that type of offense. I think Arians is plenty smart enough to adjust his offense to what Brady can and cannot do. I still think Brady can be one of the better passers in the intermediate range and even take some shots downfield when well protected and he will have some of the best supporting casts and weapons he's had recently. I don't think Arians will ask Brady to do what he was asking Luck to do. 
    • Or their putting out players to excel a play. For instance, a hard PA that looks like a run. Teams will buy it's a run more if Pascal is on the field then Campbell. All I'm saying is, don't sleep on Pascal just because we took two WRs early. We can take advantage of each of their best traits.
    • Not sure TB12 would make it to Bye Week if Arians was the playcaller
    • I have some thoughts on Arians' offense and playcalling, but Leftwich is the playcaller now. And I think they'll tailor things to fit Brady's strengths and maximize the weapons they have. I don't think Brady is as dangerous a passer as he once was, but it was only a couple years ago that he threw for 500 yards in the Super Bowl.    Arians' calling plays for Ben and Luck (and even Jameis) -- who thrived in a downfield passing attack, who liked to hold on to the ball and shrug off tacklers -- probably doesn't have a whole lot of significance for the 2020 Bucs with Brady. Arians might be stubborn, but he's not stupid.
    • I’d love to have Clowney.... and I’m a big believer in the high character players the Colts have targeted recently. But with the uncertainty over what the salary cap will look like next year, and the multiple free agents the Colts need to sign, it makes sense to be cautious. If they could get him on a one year affordable deal, heck yeah. But I suspect Clowney will hold out for a better deal than that....which is why Clowney and the Colts are not the best fit. Gonna have to roll with J. Houston and the kids.
