Why would it get closed? All i heard was how Bob was going to light up the Denver secondary. What happened?

Not sure what you are trying to prove but the thead is an embarrassment. No RG fan or skins fan started a thread about how lousy the Colts looked just two weeks ago to the Chargers who are not the Broncos by any stretch.

There were plenty of threads on how terrible the colts played the chargers.

So is it the knee this week or the defense that's to blame this week?

I don't really see any Redskins fans caring - at least in their forums or any that I know in person. Hardly ever see Luck's name mentioned from any of them, but the situation is different because there isn't any second guessing the pick - they never had a shot at Luck. Seems to be a one sided affair - at least within their respective forums.

A few stray belligerent fans trolling over here doesn't count. :)

What a sad little thead that hopefully gets closed sooner rather than later.

I could say the same about a few others "theads". Debate is a good thing... as long as everyone can get their opinions out without being censored like certain others out here do.

I'd like to see someone argue on his behalf... the man has looked shaky this year.

Time to bring in Skip Bayless.

Dude's gonna have a short career. Which is what I said before he was drafted.

We picked the right one, and only 24 games later it's becoming fast apparent.

I can understand somewhat where your coming from in that it's a bit of a crowing post but it is hard not to push back a little when he's not living up to expectations when certain sections of the media did and continue to take shots at the Colts and Luck both directly and indirectly by their canonisation of RG3. Yes I'm talking about Skip in the main.

I would argue too it wasn't Luck having a bad game per say against the Chargers, if some of those passes aren't put down it could have been a very different story. But could of, would have, should have doesn't win you anything.

Kick a man while he's down, he'll be alright, he just played bad today. Doesn't really interest me, I never liked the Redskins(except for when my favorite college/nfl defensive player ever played for them in Sean Taylor, man I loved that guy R.I.P)

Why on earth anyone would watch Skip Bayless or take anything he says as being legit is beyond me. Maybe people are just looking for a reason to be angry.

I have seen him take some brutal hits while dropping back... and more that he didn't need to take running down the sideline. Griffin admitted he was trying to get penalties, and will probably pay the price for saying so. People are going to challenge him now.

I'm pretty sure it's the other quarterback in that game that gets all the excuses when he loses. People pretty much tell it like it is with RGIII who I am closer and closer to saying is a bust.

With the constant shots you take at Manning it's hard to believe you aren't a Patriots fan instead of the Saints.

I'm not surprised, not everyone can have a AP type recovery. His O-line and D haven't helped alleviate the pressure on him and if course teams have had a season worth of film now to examine.

The key I've always felt was going to be once taken outside the comfort zone could his decision making stand up, and IMO the jury is still out on that one.

Skip wasn't the only one, just the main champion though quite a few have subsequently done a U turn. Either way the media did its best to make it a Luck vs RG3 competition last year and there is still some Cary over emotionally I guess.

    • @chad72 one other thing I'd strongly recommend considering, is having a lottery for the Colts (instead of first come first serve). I can't remember how we did it, but I know we gave everyone a chance. We did have several fans from other teams participating, and we made exceptions for them (since no one else had strong feelings about the teams they wanted). So for us, NFLFan would have the option for MN, some of the Charger fans could pick LAC, etc..       
    • I'd love to see EJ emerge. He's definitely got the measurables. I just have tempered my expectations knowing he's a small school dice roll. Thought we'd see him get some time last year, but instead still saw small bits of the other depth guys.   there's some decent FAs that IMO would be an upgrade, and wouldn't cost a bunch. If we could pick up a guy from a cap squeezed team like Jaylon Brown for like 8Mish a year, I think he'd be perfect for our scheme and a 3 down guy. An aging vet like Perryman or KJ Wright might work out too on a modest short term deal. Perryman might be just a 2 down guy, but his coverage was not bad at all last year.  We're in a 4-2-5 set 60+% of the time already. We've never used the SAM a lot even with both Walker and Oke. In 2019, it was Walker at MIKE on 1st and 2nd (and short yardage), Oke at MIKE on 3rd (and obvious passing downs), and then Oke sometimes at SAM vs teams that ran the edge a lot or obvious run downs. Last year Oke started eating into Walker's 2nd down snaps, and we simply played lite more.    Purely my opinion, but you don't want to see Adams or Franklin taking MIKE snaps unless it's an emergency. And definitely not Glasgow. And keep in mind that EJ is still pretty thin. Oke is undersized already at MIKE. EJ is taller than Oke, but 10lbs lighter. Perhaps EJ put on some good weight, but IMO, his lack of power/strength is likely a factor keeping him off the field. He's probably more suited for WILL than MIKE to be honest. If he can pack 15-20lbs of good weight on, and keep his twitch, he could make for a very nice MIKE. It'll be interesting to see if he's made progress in the offesason. Walker was the QB of the D in 2019, and it was him in 2019 and 2020 that filled in at WILL when Leonard was out. That was a little surprising to me as Oke was "billed" as faster and rangier... Peculiar...   Anyway, his asking price is not what concerns me. He's not going to command a lot in this market, and he's not ranked in the top 200 FAs (PFF) either. What my gut tells me is he'd rather play in 3-4 where IMO he'd be much more productive, and would fit his skill sets better. Better fit for him, and probably more lucrative long term. He also can't be happy with Oke eating into his snaps, especially when Oke isn't playing well. Anyway, I really don't want to see Oke playing early downs. He got tore up early downs at MIKE when Leonard was out. If he's our 3 down guy, I can see teams running right at him.
    • Watt is not a good scheme fit. Period. Especially not at that price point and having played his entire career in basically the same scheme. I don't care what anyone says but Houston would be a really logical signing. You don't need him to be Superman with Buckner doing 3 tech.  If worse comes to worst with this cap squeeze, you could get Houston on a one year rental for a discount. He's already cleared almost $100M over his career and he was solid in 2020. There is no way I chase Watt in FA for a premium coming out of a 3-4 scheme. Green Bay is a much better fit for him. 
    • Jabril Cox would be a nice upgrade from Walker and Oke.  Especially since we play the 4-2-5 60% of the time.  He can cover and blitz, two things that Oke and Walker can't do.
    • The thing with this is the best teams don't usually have a lot to spend on free agents.  Its rare for a team as good as the colts to have as much money as they did the last few years.   We also have like one playoff win in 6 years now while having all that free cap space
