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.

    • Well, I have not thought the team was bad since Ballard got a year under his belt and hired his own coach. They have had struggles...as any rebuilding does, but the Colts also lost their schemed for QB. Every team gets injuries, but the positions that the Colts have lost to injury are particularly important to the development of a new QB.   Let's just think about what if......   What if the Colts take a high draft pick at QB next year....and the guy faces what JB had to face in the two years he has been a starter. Few would get through and remain as a starter, unaffected career wise by the losses, the scrutiny, and the pressure. Verrrrrry few. Thank the stars that the Colts have a QB that is as tough as Jacoby Brissett is. He is double tough. I would take his toughness against ANY QB coming out in the draft. He may not be that guy, but he is the right guy right now.....and for the forseeable future, until that guy becomes a possibility. Just because there is  a few QB's slotted to go high in the draft, doesn't mean it is the right year to snag one.    In the meantime, keep adding pieces, and manage the cap. When the Colts name is called in the draft, I want them to take the player that they see is a franchise player....regardless of the position. If that is a QB, so be it. But let's not become a struggling franchise that passes on a golden player to grasp for a QB.
    • Depending on a series of decisions we make this off-season I wouldn’t rule out drafting a RB in the 4 rounds.  (I’m assuming by 5 picks you meant 4 rounds?  With 2 picks in R2, that’s the way the math breaks down.)    Just thinking out loud.   I think it’s way too early to rule most things in or out.

Based on his record so far, he is  average to slightly above average drafter ONLY,.      
    • You have to laugh the minute he gets put in he gives up the TD. Maybe that doesnt happen if rock was in there.
