Miami loss tough pill to swallow


Recommended Posts

This was a tough game to watch. All game I never lost hope for some reason I thought the Colts were gonna pull it out one way or another, especially on that last offensive drive, but they couldn't do it and that is the way it goes sometimes. I think Colts fans need to look at the good things we saw in this game, like the fact that we sacked Tannehill 5 times and that Luck played a heck of a game. I am happy with what Bradshaw did considering he is probably really rusty after his recovery. With all that said Miami is a very good team ( especially their front seven) and credit to them, they outplayed the Colts today. I am looking forward to the match up next week against the 49ers and I will never count the Colts out. Like Reggie said in training camp " the sky's the limit''.   :coltslogo:  :colts:.

Miamis got a good squad, but today I think we had one too many mistakes out there on defense.

I did not think their defense was so formidable. We went up and down the field on them for most

of the afternoon.  We just need to get out of our own way in some situations, we'll get there.

Losses like today are definitely the worst. It was like there was nothing more that we could do offensively OR defensively to win that game. 5 sacks on Tannehill, a great rushing attack by Bradshaw, and Fleener played his tail off and it still wasn't enough. As Ray would say, "way of the road Bubs.... that's the way she goes."

Of course while we are thinking with logic and reasoning, we need to fire pep and pagano and manusky. heck lets just fire everybody!. Along with cutting the whole o line donald brown and coby fleener, unless of course the forum is okay with fleener and castonzo this week?

I'm kidding obviously haha its not the end of the world. Disappointing loss, good learning experience

Its hard to swallow but on the other hand realistically we look like a .500 team at best, I dont see us having a chance at all beating sf,sea,den.....atleast houston looks subpar too so thats something positive down the road. Huge colts fan,just going off of what I see on the field telling it like it is.

I disagree we do get denver and seattle at home.

That won't matter. You could play those two teams anywhere in the universe and the Colts would have no chance. I really expect Peyton to put on a show we he gets here. Can you say seven TDs anyone?

So you're saying we have a home field advantage?  We barely beat Oakland and lost to Miami.  We could have easily have been 0-2 going out to San Francisco.

what im saying is we are a better home team than road team,so the chance to win at home is greater.So u are saying we will lose all 4 games to those teams?I say no.

We are 1-1 at home this season and we have played no road games.  So what are you basing your opinion of us being a better home team?   You can't base it off last season because no 2 seasons are alike and we have a very different team.

keep in mind we would have won this game by atleast a TD the refs took one away on a nonsense call and another one could have been to fleener again but they got away with a holding call....so basically the refs screwed us bad...Luck would have thrown for at least 3 TDs to fleener in this game if i'm not mistaking..also don't forget about the late hit out of bounds that wasn't called...

You're the one with the crystal ball.  You're saying we play better at home than on the road when we are 1-1 at home and haven't play a single road game.  I did not predict anything.  I'm only stating what has already occurred.  And nowhere did I say the season was over after only 2 games.

Do you think its tough to win on the road in the nfl?With that said i think we have good chances to win at home.Didnt happen today but its not over yet,

Now you're backtracking.  You didn't say we have a better chance of winning at home.  You specifically said that we are a better home team than road team with nothing to base it on.  Good teams can win anywhere.

dudes, I love having the ability to rewind tv. so, at the 1:35 mark in the 4th QT, I don't know how the refs didn't see Ellerbe molesting Whalen. whatch it frame for frame and its ridiculous. at one point Ellerbe is damn near bear hugging whalen across the field. not to mention pulling his left shoulder and locking his left arm at the route break. Whalen could've got the first down. And then Brown missed his block. Freaking wow that was the most pathetic block i've ever ever ever ever ever seen in my life. Irsay tweets about making a trade for a running back, I would put my money that brown is traded this week. that was just too much. Brown has had 5 years.....FIVE YEARS to learn to block. Bye Brown.

    • 100% yes I would trade up to get a QB and Id keep drafting them until I found one.    Almost 100% of the time a franchise is turned around from bad to good you can isolate 1 pick that did it. And its always a QB.
    • Bengals select Baron Browning  Panthers time to shine 
    • We didn't sniff a SuperBowl with a very good QB in Luck because the roster was not good.   If Wentz can regain his form, we will have a very good QB on a very good team.  Nice job Ballard.  
    • We can't restructure Doyle as he's in the final year of his contract. We can extend him, and reduce his 2021 cap hit, but I don't see that happening. I think Doyle is more likely to be replaced than get a new deal.   For Stewart, the previous CBA had a rule that prevented a player's contract from being restructured more than once within one year. In practice, this meant a player had to wait a year after signing their deal before they could restructure, which means Stewart wouldn't be eligible to restructure until November 2021. I'm assuming that rule has not changed in the new CBA, but I have not researched this yet.   So Kelly is really the only one that would be eligible. They could easily cut his 2021 cap hit in half, or more if they really wanted. So he's scheduled at $14.65m, and that could definitely come down to ~$8m, saving the team $6.65m in 2021. But that savings basically gets moved into dead money in future seasons, which is something the Colts apparently want to avoid. Kelly's contract had zero signing bonus, so after 2021 there is zero dead money. Restructuring him would be a dramatic change in cap strategy for the Colts.   Doesn't mean it won't happen, but we're in really good cap shape, so I'm not expecting it. If the Colts wanted to manipulate their cap situation to add FA flexibility, they could back load their FA contracts, with the same net result.
