Nope. Just saying I know more than you more than likely. But hey way to ignore what I said to you overall and just focus on one part.

Yeah, you keep telling yourself that. Whatever makes you happy. I'm done with this, I'm not going to get into some argument over this.

Man I wouldn't miss it bro. Its fun to watch Painter grow. This team would have a real chance if they didn't keep dropping the ball. I am having trouble seeing the game with this bag on my head though.

roftl yeah, I agree with you on the first part. It's fun watching Painter improve each game.

So a coach is responsible for players fumbling? Carter stumbled, and a defender punched the ball out.

Reitz tapped Saturday when Painter wasn't ready.

Which one of those player mistakes belongs on Caldwell's head?

I thought I said no one is blaming Caldwell for fumbles remember up there when I typed it. Anyways it's obvious this is s poorly coached team. Fumbles, poor tackling poor play calling. Fumbles poor tackling and poor coverage usually means something in the FO and or coaching staff isn't right these are professional football players. They get paid to do this.

How about what I said about the D scheme. They are sitting way off the recievers, Thats coaching, not players

Right, what's the point of a messag board if only one side of the opinion can voice their side without the other voicing theirs. That would be awful.

The next thing people will say is that we need to play closer to the WR's. Against guys who are 6'4", how well do you think that will go? Brees will throw slants and screens against soft coverage, and will throw go routes, drags, and fades against tight coverage.

It goes back to the scheme that we play. But in case you arnt watching, what we are doing ISNT WORKING

Who in our secondary could cover the WR's on this team? Powers had tried playing close and deep, and has been beat both ways. Do we have a better corner?

Poor tackling is on the coaching, I agree. I never said Caldwell was doing a good job.

Fumbling is all on the players. They know how to hold the football; they've done it since junior high.

Feel free to voice your opinion. But don't attack people, don't call them names.

What names have I called? Genius? How dare I? Seriously with the names people have called Caldwell, why can't I call someone "genius" for a blatantly obviously call that some faults are on the players and not the coaches?

Sorry I'm late....bowling night is Sunday night. Anyway, I've already heard all the discontent amonsgst the fans. Who cares. I've been a fan of the Colts since the Harbaugh campaign. Loved the underdog then, love them still today. My grandma told me I should have been a Bears fan (she's from Detroit). Oh well, no. I'm a Colts fan for life. If they are going to have a down year, let it be this year. Manning maybe has 3 or 4 years left in him and I look forward to his return. This year, a down year, lets have that down year and take a good quarterback that will lead us into the future. I don't know for sure if that QB is Andrew Luck or not. heck when we took Manning everybody was screaming Ryan Leaf....remember that? Anyway, this is a bad game. I'll watch it to the finish. The important thing is, that even though we are 0-6, we've kept 5 of those games so close we could have been winners. I'm proud of our team in face of adversity. I want a better secondary, but oh well. We have what we have and I'll watch 960 minutes of Colts football this year, and live for next year. Go Colts.

They have also tackled since junior high. The coach can say hey tackle better but what's diff between that a fumbling? Both are poor coaching. That's just my opinion yours may be diff.

Even if we do cover one of their WRs, they have too many weapons for us to stop them all. Colston, Henderson, Graham, Sproles, Ingram...so many weapons

The scheme isn't it, we just don't have the personnel, and our offense keeps turning the ball over.

How many defenses have locked Brees down this year? I mean, really; Rodgers outscored him because he actually has MORE weapons, and the Bucs got extremely lucky Brees was throwing more passes to their team than to the Saints.

Because it's sarcastic and rude. No one condoned people calling Caldwell names either.

Because you are inferring that "genius" is the opposite of that person's intelligence. You are basically calling someone stupid when you call them a genius sarcastically.

But no one has stopped me from making comments from "fans" making "names" about others as well. And while no one has condoned making names about Caldwell people have said some pretty awful things about him as a coach.

    • Actually if you look at the entire picture since the divisions got re-aligned in 2002 we would be the only team out of the 4 teams (others being the Texans, Titans, and Jags) that have even been relevant. Those other teams have never even played in a SB (Titans did in 1999) but I am talking since the AFC South was formed. We have been to 2 SB's and won 1. No other teams have ever been scared of the Texans, Titans, or Jags I would be safe to say but when we had Peyton that were scared poopless to face us and even when we had a healthy Luck teams were scared as well. In 2018 when we won the playoff game at Houston with Luck that showed everyone that we were the better team when healthy. Houston was loaded that season with Watson, Hopkins, Watt, and Clowney and the game was over at halftime with Luck healthy.   As long as we make the playoffs it doesn't even bother me that we don't win the division. A lot of teams that win their division stink it up in the playoffs. I would rather make a Title Game or a SB than win my division if I had to choose between the choices. 
    • Based on this, we can actually get the Browns' 1st rounder No.26 and pick No.91 for our pick No.21 if we move back just 5 spots, I like it     I have read Rich Hill's articles on PatsPulpit. He is good with numbers. Of course, there will always be a Patriots bias on a Patriots SB Nation article, especially when there are gray areas for interpretation but the quality of his numbers he puts out is a good one. Similarly, I like Scott Kacsmar articles too.    Ultimately, in trades, two hands need to be willing to clap based on a value agreed. The rest is pundit and draft day fan speak fodder.
    • There have been times in the recent years, where the secondary looked confused and out of position. I hope this coach can eliminate those mistakes. Maybe it was just that the players were young or not used to playing together. 
    • If he plays bad and we start something like 1-4, this forum will implode. Rivers was good this past season for a 38 yr old, Luck was very good when he played, Peyton was a top 3 QB of all-time, who knows what we have here in reality? Can Wentz play at least as good as Rivers did or will he be like JB = a .500 QB?? 
    • Drafting Montez Sweat would have been Sweet instead of trading down. Hopefully, Rock and Banogu develop and show something in 2021.
