give it a rest. He did what most coaches would do in those situations. He didn't drop everything thrown his way. He didn't commit big penalties on third down all night long

 

 

seriously? most coaches? any winning coaches would have went for it if their defense was giving up everything.  You can wish what you want, but your wrong so you drop it

no I'm not. You can't go for it from your own twenty with five minutes left and only down one score

I don't think there was that much time left?  Only 3 something if i remember correctly?

With 5 left i may agree with you, but i don't think there was that much time which is why

i thought we should go for it.

you can when your defense has not stopped the other team all night.  How many of their drives were over 5 minutes? Even the offense wasn't sure what they were doing.  that is another sign of his indecisiveness.  and the fact that they had a good chance to score again with little time left that would put them up by 2 scores.  you have to take a page out of the pats playbook and go for it then.  put it on you offense to win the game

yes, they gambled and lost. but they gambled. although they had the lead at the time so it was a slightly different situation

 

they put themselves in a situation they could control to try to win the game. they had trouble with manning all night and knew the offense was the best shot for a W

We flat out stunk tonight. We got manhandled all night. It was a fist fight and we showed up wearing a dress.

Well said....just as we physically beat the 49ers down, we were physically beaten down tonight.

 

For a young team like ours...let it serve as a much needed reality check.

Did somebody call the Colts the 2nd best team in the AFC...ha, ha, ha...what a joke.

4-2, soon to be 4-3 going into Houston after the bye week.

...stat for tonight - drops for the season 8, drops tonight 5.

Well at least there is maple syrup, and hockey.....and Moose. Lets not forget Curling!

I like how you count a loss before the game is played.

It indeed was a poor performance. Bad play calling choices and our defense looked like the worst in the league. The penalties that kept the chargers on the field on 3rd down I think hurt us the most.

Well, on to next game where we all have to hope the team bounces back and wins the next one...more important game next week than was this game.

I was at the game. Drove 3 hours to San Diego to watch it. Some views from what i saw.

Chargers ran the ball ok, wasnt great, but when we needed a stop we couldnt get it.

They ran a ton of crossing routes to beat our man coverage. We played most of the night with a single high safety.

Drops!! Heyward Bey dropped a TD. There was no one behind him. Fleener dropped a few big play balls. The late INT should have been caught the play was right in front of me.

I didnt look at the TOP, but it couldnt have been a good stat with the new offense we run. Im just guessing San Diego had 36-38 mins.

Im OK with the last punt. But MAc hit a bad one. It went 35 yards. If he gets it 42-48, different story.

Just a temporary setback with their second loss tonight with the Chargers 19-9 win over our Colts  Surely the Colts as a team can and will perform better in each of the remaining games. Colts are flying back to Indianapolis, take a day or two off the practice field, then prepare for the Denver Broncos, and  return of Peyton Manning, at LOS on Sunday Night.

 

Colts play their second straight nationally televised game for NBC Sports Sunday Night Football. Other than tonight's loss, enjoy the rest of your week to all of the members here on the Colts Strong community fan forum, and GO COLTS!  ;)  :coltslogo:  :ribbon:  :colts:  :1colts:  :coltshorse:  :coltslogo:

Sorry, Gandalf, but I don't do PC. Men are stronger than women, fact. Let's move on, shall we?

Wow. I'll take brains over strength any day too... something you seem to lack on this issue, or you just trollin'. Either way I don't want to ruin the game day thread with such shenanigans.

Moving along.

Gandalf, look at every Olympic record set by men and women. It will clearly illustrate that men are faster, stronger, and bigger than women. It's okay to say and think so. It's not okay, however, to have the evidence and still think otherwise for the sake of not hurting someone else's feelings.

When I said that the Colts showed up to a fist fight in a dress, I did imply that they played like girls.

    • I called guys like Willis a failure because the Colts traded up to get him.  Publicly said they considered taking him in the 3rd round where they took Okereke.   They didn’t get much from him when he played and then he retired early.   Tell played a small amount his rookie year and played well.  Then took the next year off for Covid.  But then came back and was on the practice squad.   Wasn’t even a backup.   Sorry, that’s a failure, not a stretch.   Davis was sent to the PS as a rookie where he was claimed.   Blackman either can’t stay healthy or doesn’t play well enough to make an impact.  Good against the run, poor against the pass and he plays free safety.   Not enough performance for a third round player.     All your other arguments are not related to your original question which was to ask about Ballard’s defensive draft failures.   You asked, I answered.   I didn’t say Ballard had no defensive successes.   
    • Morris,   “The Indianapolis Colts are doing the "unprecedented," as the team is set to go through a third round of interviews for the vacancy at head coach.  But despite the long decision process, Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris remains "one to watch," per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.   “It seems like some of the candidates did really well," he said on The Rich Eisen Show. “Raheem Morris I’ve heard has done very well. I think that’s certainly one to watch,”
    • Including 4th and 5th round picks as failings is a stretch. It's still early to call Blackman a failure just yet.  How about the players that were hits? How about the ratings of the defense as a whole over the span since 2018? Where was the defense rated on points scored against them? Had we had just an average offense there would have been a substantial amount of more wins. 
    • Just in, An unnamed source from the Indiana Farm Bureau on W. 56th street has strongly suggested on the condition of anonymity, that Yao Sujie the Chinese National Olympic Handball Coach is now the clear dark horse front runner for the vacant head coaching position of the Indianapolis Colts.  
    • The defensive failures would be these….   2018: 2nd R: Turay. DE 2nd R:  Lewis. DE   2019:  2nd R:  Benogu.   DE 4th R:   Willis       SS 5th R:   Tell.         CB   2020:   Blackman. FS   2021:   Davis.       DB   NOTE:   I didn’t include 2017 in this.  The Colts first three picks were all defense.  None have developed.
