Yes but if Luck puts it in front of him in stride it wouldn't matter about any other defender.  He has been off and just cant throw accurately lately.

and by lately, his entire career. He was supposed to be a high percentage guy. His completion percentage has been a joke.

Did TY have to come back?

 

The throw was aimed where he would have to make a catch at his thigh.  A proper pass is in front of the receiver so that the receiver doesn't have to turn to make the catch.  When has it ever been acceptable to make your receiver stop to make a catch?  

 

I mean cmon guys we have watched Peyton for years and that was something he was known for.  His receivers were always getting balls on target and in stride.  We just haven't seen that with Luck consistently.

The throw was not short it was tipped. Probably because there were two receivers in the same area.

It was tipped by a safety well behind the play. T.Y. Was trying to turn around and catch it by his waist/knees. If it were placed out in front of T.Y. It would've been a TD.

Said it all year.  O-line coach should be fired TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How many of these guys would be starting for any other team?  Name one.

He can only do so much with the lack of depth we have.

If anything blame Grigs for not drafting 3 deep on the OLine (which is rediculous, by the way).

Dalton is on today....

Can you name any QB who isn't on againt the Colts? This team hurts to watch right now. We can't psss protect, run block, defend the run or pass. Coaches suck they cant game plan cant understand 4th and 1, use a time out! Seriously this team is fundamentally flawed in every way possible.

I agree with you... We are just awful. I dont care that we're going to win a bad division by default. Just does nothing for me. We are not as fun to watch as the old Manning teams that irsay slanders. They at least had a chance. This is a bad brand of football.

    • They got moved to the same thread the last time the post shifted away from the topic.    
    • Welp- probably time to lock this thread down.    When the whiners come out and posts go missing, it’s about that time. 
    • Idk if there’s a Leonard like player in this draft, so I think going day 3 is fine. LB is like TE for me. I think it’s mostly a traits based position, so you draft and develop. Look at EJ Speed; sixth round pick from Tarleton who has played great.   And when you factor in the scheme variance you mentioned, LB isn’t worth drafting high. If I were Ballard I’d draft two day 3 LBs and add 1-2 FA vets.
    • Probably something close to what Gilmore signed with the Colts. I guess it'll depend on how high his market is and how long he has to sit and wait to sign somewhere. I'm assume he'll sign something close to 12-15 million per year.
    • This is a story I saw about 6 months ago and sat on it until now — draft season.    There was an interesting story in a Bucky Brooks column and it might be Colts related.   He says he surveyed every team that runs a 4-3 defense and for half of them linebacker is now a deeply discounted position, the way RB is on offense.   The story says that for those teams linebacker is now only a Day 3 draft pick.  They will no longer spend a Day One or Day Two pick on LB.      The column did not break things down by team, so no way to know who thinks this way until the next draft when we see which 4-3 team spends only a Day 3 pick on LB.    Part of the thinking is this….  If a typical game has 65 snaps for the defense, a 4-3 team is only in their base defense roughly 12-15 snaps a game.  Thats it.  The rest of the time 4-3 teams are pulling LBers for more DBs.    Teams are running a 4-2-5, or 4-1-6 or 4-0-7.   So linebackers become much less important in a 4-3 defense.     If Ballard spends a day 2 pick in LB, then he’s trying to replace Leonard.  But if not, if he spends only a Day 3 pick on LB, then CB has had a change of philosophy and has joined other teams in this new defensive thinking.    We’ll know in two months.
