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.

    • @Superman   @w87r   So, among many things, I get e-mail from Sports Illustrated every day.   And the other day,  there was this article written by Andew Brandt, who used to handle the contracts and salary cap issues for the Packers for 10 years.    And one thing he wrote jumped off the page at me.     Now, here's why I remind our two resident Salary Cap experts I noted above about something they have both talked about,  but I haven't seen either of them talk about this year.   Roll Over.   According to Brandt,  the Colts have the MOST SALARY CAP ROLLOVER in the NFL.   $30 MIl.    So, whatever the general 2021 team salary cap turns out to be,  you can add $30 Mill for the Colts.     I'm going to do two things.     I'm going to link the entire article for everyone.    It's free, non-premium,   and I'm also going to cut and paste the key section for everyone to read right here.      OK....    here's the article...      And just for discussion purposes,  Brandt uses a projected salary cap of $185.   He's NOT saying that's what the final number will be,  only his own hypothetical number for his article.   https://www.si.com/nfl/2021/03/02/business-of-football-understanding-the-salary-cap-dead-money?suid=5cc1cc3a3f92a475c0234f43&utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=SI Extra 030221&utm_term=SI Extra - USE THIS - List     Here is the key text:   Myth: Every NFL team’s cap number is going to be $185 million   No. Actually, no team’s cap number is going to be $185 million (or whatever the final cap number is). The 2011 CBA, for the first time, allowed teams to carry over unused cap room from one year to the next. In managing the cap for the Packers, we did not have that option; it was use it or lose it. I had to negotiate * incentives—such as a clause giving our third-string quarterback $20 million if he threw seven touchdowns in our last game—to carry over cap room. (When he didn’t earn the incentive, we would get it as a credit toward the next year.) Now teams don’t have to play those games. As per NFLPA numbers, every team in the league has carried over 2020 cap room, from a low of roughly $500,000 for the Ravens to a high of more than $30 million for the Colts. Teams carrying over $20-plus million of cap include the Jets, Browns, Eagles, Cowboys and Jaguars. Thus, although the team cap is $185 million, the Colts’ adjusted cap will be around $215 million, and so on. And again, these teams have been preparing, or should have been preparing, for this reduced cap for months.   What say you both, Superman and w87r?     What do you think of what Brandt has written?    Does everyone have to re-do their off-season mocks reflecting a team figure of $215?     I look forward to hearing from both of you and others!
    • Jets take Zach Wilson  dolphins up
    • I have to agree. His draft order is not always spot on but his ability to evaluate talent is always in the ballpark as to what GMs agree on.  As it turned out Tobin's rant ended up being pretty lame after Trev Alberts ended up being one of the Colts all time bust. Not only was Alberts a bust, so was Tobin. 
    • I don’t know why after so many years there are so many people who still believe Kiper  doesn’t know what he’s talking about? The exact opposite is true.   Always has been.   He’s lasted more than 35 years and for very good reason.    But I’ve been reading this here since I showed up nearly nine years ago.  Some falsehoods die slowly around here.
