Colts Vs. Dolphins Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

It's going to be a loooong day. What's up with. Heyward-Bey? :(

He, and Fleener have both missed catchable balls. Coby's was a little tougher.

Angerer never ever turned to see it coming... regardless the outcome would have been bad. Yikes.

He was supposed to have safety help over the top, it looked like.  But Bethea went for the pick and didn't properly judge where the TE was

Colts mgt did such a wonderful job building a team around Peyton so that he had lots of protection and different players who could catch his passes.  The running game was good too.  I think Luck deserves to have as good if not better O Line to keep him safe and a selection of guys to catch his passes (and hang on to them dammit) PLUS a tight and mighty Defense.

 

Luck shouldn't get sacked more than 4 times a SEASON instead of in a game! 

Irsay needs to step up surrounding Luck with a massively protective O Line,  great receivers,  get a great running game going, and some Defense that actually can stop the run, create turnovers, and kick some butt!

    • I disagree with that.   He has the same flaws as when he came out of college.   He hasn't improved those flaws.  he's pretty much a .500 starter which is great for a backup.  
    • Even if with a few extra kicks and a couple wins...Colts probably still have similar DVOA rankings and a negative point differential. They just weren't a very good team.
    • I think you are correct.   I'm sure Ballard seen some potential of him making a good starter, but that is just potential.  
    • I don’t think I have enough information at this point to form an opinion.   I think Jacoby is caught somewhere between a top-tier backup and a low-tier starter.  But he’s still young and I’d say it’s quite possible he could improve a lot.  He has great arm strength and is one of the NFL’s best at playing through contact.  But he doesn’t have very good field vision, isn’t all that mobile, throws a lot of short, hard to catch bullets, and is generally too cautious.   I’ll reserve any judgment on Eason until I have a chance to see him play live against NFL defenses.
    • But Luck quit before the Ballard's third season...and according to many here...JB is a legit starting QB (or at the very least...the league's best backup).    So...you have one of the league's top GMs with three offseasons to build a team...and a legit backup QB to step in and start...and that team wins 7 games. That's less than the 2018 team that had no Luck for half the season and bad/hurt Luck for the other half.   Regardless of missed kicks last season...they were the 19th ranked defense and 19th ranked offense (according to DVOA)...that is basically an average team...or a .500 record team (sort of like 17-15). Either JB was a terrible QB or the roster wasn't as strong as we hoped. I think the truth is probably somewhere in the middle.   With Luck...the team was better than average no doubt...but they also started 1-5...before Luck started playing like an MVP and they rattled off 9 wins against the league's second easiest schedule.    I am not saying Ballard hasn't done a good job building the roster...I just don't think the team results have been nearly as great...or at least not commensurate with the praise he gets. It's fine to judge him on the process...which is what nearly everyone does...but we have to recognize that the team results need to get better fast.
