I didn't say we wouldn't use two backs we will, but it doesn't a rocket scientist to figure out that Donald Brown is having the better season. 

 

and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out they are two different type of backs and usually run out of different formations. yet i constantly read posts with people sounding like they know all about the team

Titans had six yards rushing in the second half.

 

For all those complaining about the coaches once again they come up with huge half-time adjustments on BOTH sides of the ball.

It absolutely drives me nuts.  We're winning and that's all that matters.  But man, is it frustrating to watch sometimes.

Two games... it should be at least that long. He made a stupid choice there.

I doubt it, I see a fine.  I mean how many game did Meriwether knock people out with shots to the head just to get a game and then it was only a game?  Also you better believe the Colts are going to show the league that punch that Walker threw after that.  Don't get me wrong it doesn't make what Walden did right but Walker should have been tossed too for throwing a punch.  My guess is a fine for both and the league will move on.  With that said if he gets a suspension I don't think anyone is going to say it wasn't deserved.

Look at tonight, Donald Brown became THE back in the second half.  They were running him out of the same formations that they were trying to run Richardson out of as well the difference was Brown was producing Richardson was not.  So I am guessing you are going to see the roles reverse Brown is going to be the featured back while Richardson becomes the change of pace guy.  Hopefully that gets Richardson going.   Even if Brown isn't the starter it's been trending this way for a few weeks now, that Brown is going to be the guy who gets the majority of the carries.

Agree, but why does it have to wait until halftime??  Is there some union rule that says they can't adjust in-game?

I wanted a timeout after the head-butt.  Nah...just let them fall apart out there.  We'll adjust at halftime.

Doesn't make sense...

Fair question I said earlier they need to figure out whatever they are doing at half-time and start doing it at the start of the game.  I honestly think this team thrives off having it's back up against the wall and if it doesn't they just don't play well.

Yep, that may be it.  And when the coaches finally figure out the team doesn't have anything it's too late (Rams game).

Halftime just didn't get there quick enough in the Rams game lol.  Honestly tonight it came at the perfect time.  Defense was melting down and the offense had a drive for points to get a little momentum and then we had the long drive for a TD and the fumble on the kickoff.

Donald Browns's 11-yard touchdown run  (and Adam Vineteiri's PAT) was the difference as the real  Colts hold on to win 30-27!  Colts now have a three-game lead in the AFC South with a 7-3 record, while the Titans fall to 4-6 and third place.  Colts, and their fans, can enjoy the win in the next nine days between games.    :D  :thmsup:  :coltshelmet:  :coltslogo:

 

Enjoy your weekend, and all of next week Colts fans!   Colts by then will prepare their next game on the road at the Arizona Cardinals, lead by former Colt interim Head Coach Bruce Arians.  Colts made the team adjustments in the second half, and prevailed with their second win tonight in Nashville.  Until their next game, GO COLTS!!!!! :D    :jump:  :rock:   :blueshoe:  :coltslogo:   :coltshorse:  :colts:  :1colts:  :coltslogo:

    • You might want to cover your eyes whenever we're on offense. The QB runs aren't going away anytime soon...
    • Got it. I agree with your concerns on Coleman. He was actually more productive at Michigan State. His stats aren't impressive at either school.   He has some crazy highlights. His ability to high point the ball is eye popping, and he does well in contested situations. But the more I've watched him, the more I start putting him in the N'Keal Harry category. Coleman is probably more athletic, but he's not a burner, and not overly quick. Maybe the reason we see all these contested catches is because he's not getting a lot of separation. And that's not going to get better in the NFL. I know he was the punt returner and showed some wiggle at times, he's obviously tough and physical, but I'm not blown away by him. And I could be seeing it wrong, maybe he's more explosive than I think, but I'm skeptical for right now.   To the BPA point, I think we have a ton of needs. Our roster has a lot of players that I would call adequate, but I would not hesitate to upgrade their spots. Everyone sees WR and TE as a need, but I think we could consider OL a serious need, depending on how you see certain players (C/RG/RT). And pretty much every position on defense is a need. There's going to be some separation among prospects in the 10-20 range, and there's still positional value to consider, but outside of QB and RB, every other position qualifies as a need, IMO. And like you said, the way it looks right now, we'll probably have a lot of similarly rated defensive players to choose from, at different positions.

    • Don't forget, the current LB's are poor in coverage, which are routes that open up quickly, thus reducing the pressure the DL gets. Teams have feasted on the Colts middle of the field 5-20 yard routes for a few years now, longer drives, less pressure, simple play action and another first down, 
    • I think this is a legit point. We have seen plenty of teams with one good receiving option, and they just feed the #1 guy, and everyone else gets scraps. To put up 1,200 yards and 17 TDs, there's some talent on display. Just look at how he beats defenders in the red zone.   But like everything else, it needs to be contextualized, and the best way to do that is to watch them play. If Nabers is getting bracketed and Thomas is working against backup level defenders, that definitely needs to be acknowledged in the evaluation. But more likely, he's facing the same coverages as everyone else, including Nabers, and is still putting up numbers. Plus the traits are obvious, and even though I gravitate more toward technically proficient WRs, you still need pro level traits to have a chance in the NFL. We'll see where Thomas' traits line up after the Combine.
