Colts Vs. Browns Game Day Thread

I am really sick of Pat McAfee making tackles......not that I don't want him to make the tackles, but he shouldn't have to.

Because he's not a NFL calibre coach, that's why.

Or because this is still a team that is struggling on offense and you have to take points when you get them.

That's not a reason not to try play action on 3rd and 1.

One touchdown will wipe out two good drives by our offense, and two good defensive stops. That's the problem with field goals.

Steve Young used to say: "Every time you settle for field goals, you are that [__] much closer to losing."

That's funny, because he's got more wins in two seasons than almost all of the rest of them. Doesn't say much for "NFL caliber" coaches.

He should kick it out through the end zone then.

God I hate our special teams coach and players. Our offense has been solid and defense has been making some stops. Here the Browns are threatening because our STs cannot do crap. Id ready fo Pat to just kick it out of bounds every time. He might as well because that is where he usually makes the stop anyways.

You should really stick to soccer.

The reason is because the Browns like to blitz(not run blitz) a lot on third and short, so a play action pass would not be a good call.

He did his job. He kicked it to the back of the end zone. It's not like we play against Cribbs every week. Should every team give up on special teams when Cribbs gets a good return?

This. Play action takes too long to develop and gets eaten by the blitz.

That was annoying.

Now before people blame the defense, consider how it happened: we flushed McCoy out of the pocket, we had good coverage, but it's hard to cover guys for 5-6 seconds. It was just a good play by the young QB and the TE, not necessarily poor play by our defense.

No Doogan, but you still have to admit the Colts easily have one of the worst special teams in the league. Everyone looks like Cribbs against them.

Anyone else see the ticker at the bottom? Carolina is beating Green Bay 13-0

Really? No I didn't see it. Oh oh . . . I picked the Pack to win.

    • Either one would be fine, but I would  go with  Baker Mayfield .  It's a good matchup, and I don't have much faith in Wentz and Eagles receivers. He struggled on MNF, and this is another division game, where Washington could be spoiler in the NFC East.    I like Perriman; he got a lot of snaps in the last game due to Evans being out. Winston's injury needs to be monitored, though. 
    • What ever QB we draft, Reich will know who the best of the two are between JB and who we draft. If Reich feels like the rook is better than the rook will start IMO. Regarding Jones, Giants aren't that good but he does have arguably the best RB in the league when healthy. I like Mack a lot but imagine if JB had Barkley.
    • LOL.... NYG drafted a QB that was supposed to sit a year. And they had far worse of a team (OL, etc) surrounding him. That didn't go as planned....   All this "Love needs to sit a year", and "JB needs to start another year" is what you'd like to happen, nothing else. And you're right, we don't know what Ballard or Irsay are thinking, but I'm guessing you don't have an inside track on their plans anymore than any of us. There are lots of reasons you wouldn't want a new QB sitting behind a QB like JB, so lets not act like it's a no brainer.   And why do we need to slow down on discussion of drafting out future QB... It's a discussion board. If you don't think that's what we should do, fine it's you're prerogative,  but not sure you need to tell others to "slow down".... The overwhelming majority of folks are ready for the next chapter to begin.    
    • Herbert interest me. Sure he can be looked at as a system QB, but I think all the tools are there
