A win is a win


Recommended Posts

i have been on this forum for a while and have noticed no matter what the Colts do they always did something  wrong according to people on here. As colts fan we should be supporting the win without out complaining about every little thing. you dont see people complaining about Luck not throwing a TD and Brown having 2 TD's. We had three rushing TD's with Luck being one of those and close to 150 rushing yards. Luck had a flawless game and Fleener finally had the game we needed him to have. Richardson played the role he needed to but still needs to play second fiddle to Brown until next season after he learns the playbook 100%. After watching Luck for a season and 10 games i have come to realize most sacks he takes are not on the o-line but him not going through his reads; he looks and throws to first read and doesnt even go to his 2nd or 3rd reads. against houston Whalen was wide open in the endzone and Luck didnt even look at him he just threw to his first read who dropped because he was double covered. overall the colts played a good game they just started slow. people need to realize we are a second half team and just deal with it.

 

this is just my two cents because people need to stop treating wins like they are losses and analyzing every flaw. yes the colts made mistakes but we won and a "w" is a "w".

In a perfect world, fans would look at it as wins and not pick at all the flaws.

 

But honestly, it is no fun just taking a win at face value.

 

You nit-pick at the flaws after a win, and try to look at the positives when you lose.

 

And welcome to the forum, where we pick apart everything.

Yeah, wah wah wah is all I ever read and I LOVE it.. It's precious

Then a few of those same people who won't stop whining come right back on here, talking about how it was a great team effort, you just have to keep battling, etc etc etc and then throw in their gameplan for next week...

Again, I just want to ask fellow fans "what do you really want?!?!" Because it's like they just don't get it I guess and think these guys are robots... I'm truly Convinced some people Really think it should be total domination all 60 mins and it's not gonna happen, but they believe it should

Couldn't agree more. This forum is getting pretty  annoying from all the negativity. Everybody on here thinks they are GM/Coach behind a computer screen.  

 

The Colts coaches are paid to coach, make decision that helps them win games so I let that up to them. I don't bark like I know witch O-linemen should start over the next O-linemen and so forth. Just win and a "Win is a Win" because like a famous Colts player once said "it's hard to win in the NFL.

    • Because I’ve been a Colts fan for a long time and Jim Irsay has never had an issue spending money.  Ballard has also said over and over again he was saving his money to pay his own.  This isn’t breaking news.  So rather buy into some idea that he was fine with spending money under Tobin, Polian, and Grigson but is no longer fine with spending money under Ballard just doesn’t add up when you look at his history and what Ballard said.  It’s much more logical to assume that’s he’s spending what Ballard wants like he has with his previous GMs especially when the GM tells you he doesn’t believe in splash free agents and is saving his money to sign his own.   Irsay doesn’t negotiate the contracts.  Ballard does so contract structuring is done by Ballard and Ballard has done it in away to give him cap flexibility that is going to allow him to keep guys like Nelson, Leonard, Smith and others over the next couple of years.    Also Jim Irsay is worth 3 billion dollars he’s not hurting for money.   You want to see an organization that doesn’t want to spend money look across town where Simon won’t even let the Pacers look at the luxury tax.  That’s an owner who doesn’t want to spend.
    • I’m not sure why you find it hard to accept that the Colts may have cash flow problems?  Not that they can’t manage them, but still….   Irsay is one of the few owners who doesn’t have any other source of big income.   No high tech company.  No real estate development.   No oil and gas.   His wealth is owning the Colts.   That’s it.    Sure he may he may spend money, but these last five years he now uses a pay-go system that lends itself to managing money.  We used to give bigger SB’s under Grigson.   Now,  we give either small or no signing bonuses.   Very few teams do that.  And we’re a very small market franchise.   You weren’t the least bit surprised to see DeForest Buckner accept a ZERO signing bonus?   I sure was.     Point of clarification:  none of what I’ve written is proof of anything.   But I think it’s at least worth considering, and you seem completely unwilling to even do that.  I confess find that surprising. 
    • Just because they had money left over doesn’t mean Irsay had a problem spending it had Ballard wanted too.  It doesn’t take that hard of a look back at Irsay’s history of owner to see he has zero problem spending what his GM wants to spend.  
    • That's not exactly true if you consider cap space left over. IIRC, we had the most unspent or near most unspent over a 3-4 year period just recently (IIRC, 16, 17, 18, 19). Pretty sure we had 40+M unspent two years in a row.   IIRC, we carried over the most in the league again this year at around 30M.   It was also speculated that we 1) didn't ask Luck for money back, AND 2) gave JB such a big raise, was because we would have been too far under the 89% rule had we not done both 1 and 2.     
    • Regardless Irsay has never been shy about spending to make the Colts better.  So either way the first point that started all this is irrelevant.
