Painters Qb Rating Was 115.8

He had a great great great first half... but the fact of the matter is that he failed to make throws in the second half. He went 3 for 10 with 40 yards in the 2nd half, and that's unacceptable. The running game was bad too. He could have been better, and because of his bad play in the 2nd half, we had to rely on the defense, and that's the reason why lost, because we relied on the defense too much, and that's because the offense didn't do anything, and that leads back to the QB, and the QB is Curtis Painter

what I want to know is why was it only 10 attempts in the second half? yeah, let's rely on Donald brown to win the game for us. That's a good idea....

For a young QB who was only starting his second game of his career he did just fine. He and the offense gave the defense a 24-7 lead and the defense could do nothing in the second half. Coyer made no adjustments in the game to combat their passing and running game. Our offense did not help much because we went into conservative mode of run, run, pass, and then punt. Heck one drives in the third was run, run, run, and the punt.

It was poor game management combined with horrible play calling in the second half that put our defense in a bad decision. The defense just made it worse by playing like crap from the beginning of the second half and Coyer did nothing to adjust to anything the Chiefs did.

This.

I have a hard time attributing this loss to Painter. Kravitz feels the same way, btw (the last time I'll ever agree with that guy). http://www.indystar....z-s-report-card

The bottom line is, we lost the game because:

1) The defensive secondary coudn't stop anyone.

2) Poor coaching that refused to adjust to anything. We had the game won in the first half in Painter's hands. So, the Colts take it out of his hands in the second half and run it all day. That's fine when we're up by 21 points, but late in the game when we're losing??? Yeah, run run pass punt, ad nauseum. Yeah, that sounds like a good plan....

Only 10 called passing plays for Painter says it all. Painter, for once, wasn't the problem here. Coaching and playcalling gets the blame.

a better way to judge QBs outdistances Painter from rest of AFC south QB's yesterday even more

By Paul Kuharsky ESPN

Indianapolis’ Curtis Painter had the best quarterbacking day among AFC South signal-callers on Sunday.

All four teams lost, but by both QBR and the traditional passer rating, Painter outdistanced the competition by a good margin.

But QBR, which includes more factors like game ending IT in endzone,Schaunb & late fumbles from the shotgun Gabbert

Comparing QBR with passer rating for AFC South quarterbacks from Sunday:

AFC South Quarterbacks in Week 5

Quarterback -- Total QBR -- Passer Rating

Curtis Painter -------- 70.2 (8th) -- 115.8

Matt Hasselbeck ---- 45.5 (18th) -- 72.0

Matt Schaub ---- ----- 27.1 (21st) -- 72.0

Blaine Gabbert ---- ---- 26.1 (22nd) -- 91.5

Passer rating maxes out at 158.3; QBR goes to 100.

For a game, QBR can be interpreted as a percentile, so a score of 80 means a QB’s performance was better than 80 percent of all QB games.

    • And to be fair…Garrett was also two years younger.   I mean… Garrett had 13.5 sacks in the NFL at the age Latu was a senior in college. Imagine Garrett still in college at that point.  Latu is still a great prospect, but some of these are really high expectations.
    • Massive deal. Billions of dollars to the local economies inbound from each of these events. The Rumble is my favorite night of the year, so I’m most excited for that one. There’s nothing better than a well done Rumble.    I’ve said since the day it opened that I don’t know why WWE hasn’t run WM at the stadium. Coming in the north entrance and seeing the ring down below and a full house across the way is going to be a killer camera shot.      Hopefully they open the roof for SummerSlam. 
    • Shaw did do a very poor job of recruiting his last few years which infuriated a good part of the fan base.  They were happy to see him retire early, though he left with a very generous golden parachute which made many fans even angrier.      As for the Hogan years, yes they were very good.  But not primarily due to Hogan who was a nice college level quarterback.    Hogan was supported by (A) Christian McCaffrey and (B) the most talented Stanford recruits in school history.  Including an OL with two future 1st round draft picks on it plus other very good talent.  And (C) some of the best defensive players Stanford ever recruited.   The team was as loaded as Stanford can get.  Hogan just had to be good, there was rarely pressure for him to be great.    Someday….  (If anyone is interested)   Perhaps this off-season, I’ll tell you some great Stanford Sports stories.  The school is an odd mix of strange decisions concerning football and other sports plus some decisions that are both good and infuriating.  Most days it’s easy to be a Stanford fan.  But somedays the school makes it so hard.   Harder than they need to.       
    • 3-14 mostly cause AR is still a question mark. I do like what I did see but until he proves he can make it a season, no one knows. So I’m setting bar low
    • They didn't win a game that AR played the majority of snaps. I am not even factoring in his injury risk. Even assuming he's healthy, he's basically repeating his rookie year. While everybody would agree his upside is higher than Minshew's, there's still nothing definitive to point to AR automatically equaling more wins.    Also, as you mentioned, the Colts fundamentally stayed the same, meanwhile, AFCS teams got stronger, especially HOU and TEN. TLaw beat both Minshew and AR last year. Stroud is now in year 2. Levis will be in year 2 (and if we think AR will make a jump, we have to consider that Levis could as well).   Yes, they won 9 games last year with Minshew. But their schedule isn't the same nor is it easier. So it's weighing the impact of AR returning + some young player development) vs. a much tougher schedule of QBs + offseason improvements for other teams (in most cases) + some young player development.   When I compare what happened last year to what they are facing this year, I don't see where they are supposed to make up the ground in the win column. I suppose there could be a rash of QB injuries again. But barring that, the win improvement has to come against good-great teams, which is a tall order.
