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.

    • I'd trade our Skins second for Ryan or Stafford. Neither are future HOF, but they are absolutely good enough to win Super Bowls with a better WR corp from us and our OL, D, and RBs. I'd prefer Stafford because he has a stronger arm and is less injury prone, but I'd take Ryan too.
    • Foles is done. Rivers is not leaving the Chargers unless he retires (he has nine kids and commutes from San Diego every day, he's not packing up and coming here). The Lions would be stupid to get rid of Stafford but if they did I would love to have him. I am convinced he would solve our troubles at QB very easily. He's a veteran, he's smart, he has possibly the strongest arm in the league, and he's tough as nails injury-wise. With a better WR corp Stafford could win us a lot of games. We would have to trade for Stafford though and I would expect the Lions to want at least a second for him. If we were to finish worse than the Lions, it would be awesome if we could give them the Skins second and move back to their spot in the first in exchange for Stafford; but that isn't going to happen.
    • We're actually fortunate that we have JB under a decently cheap deal. We could draft a Jordan Love and if he turns out to be the next Kizer, we have a mediocre backup plan to keep us afloat. Although if Ballard doesn't hit on a good QB this year, I wouldn't be against trying again in 2021 since that draft is supposed to be even more QB heavy.
    • Big no to foles and rivers.
    • Im in that boat with you draft a mid round sleeper QB to develop with kelly. And trade for a QB capable of playing elite behind our line. Foles, Stafford, Rivers. Someone to transition to the next.
