He has not played well at all, but he can't play for everyone.

 

I agree, but it's just funny to note that these courteous attempts to lessen his blame are seldom extended to Brady by Colts fans. Like I always say, the double standards work both ways.

 

And this Seattle D is way better than anything Peyton has ever overcome. People will say I'm overreacting, but given the passing league we're playing in, I think this Seattle defense is among the best I've ever seen play.

I thought the loss to the Saints was bad, this is a legacy crusher for Peyton. He is not the only guy on the field but whether we like it or not, the media will put this all on him.

Uhhhh, no. This is a crusher for Denver's team as a whole... you need to have a balanced team. I'm glad the Colts see that now.

I don't see anyone saying Manning isn't worth his share of blame on this one.

Nobody on Denver has played well, that includes him. He deserves part of the blame, but he's not the 52 man roster.

 

The same applies to Brady.

This'll be it for Champ....too bad

Not really. He, like his team, have been repeatedly burned. He's played 2-3 games this season and stunk it up tonight. He didn't earn a thing.

 

Bailey is a liability on D and will be 10Million in free cap space next season. He was done last season and the Baltimore game showcased it.

 

Bailey was a great corner. He'll be on the long list of greats who never had a good enough team to get it done. Still doesn't change how good he was at his position.

    • So if this was the chart shown here earliest, how would it have affected the dialog from our "knowledgeable" Colts fans?  Asking:  How good is Gus and staff at designing highly effective blitz packages?  How good are our players as blitzers.   To point out:   Our 4 man rush was asked to protect the edges and run lanes at a high level. I believe they graded very well at it. You give up a little pass rush doing this on none passing downs.  We have watched Gus's back seven allow backups to shred us many times. Hopefully, our talent/experience together brings improvement this season.  And we definitely need to blitz more.
    • I almost created another I hate Gus Bradley’s system tangent post with his lack of blitzing but caught myself  
    • I think this quote from that article will explain why:   ”Pressure can come from a pass rusher beating the blocker across from him cleanly, from a quarterback bailing out of a clean pocket or from a quarterback holding onto the ball too long due to coverage and lack of receiver separation, among other reasons.”   And that’s honestly the colts pass rush in a nutshell:  meh.  It’s not bad, it’s not good.  It’s just ok.  Regarding the quote above, I believe both cases.  There were times someone got to the qb in a hurry.  And due to the qbs we played, there were also self-induced pressures.
    • To be real, I have more faith in the DBs (outside of FS) than the LBs.  LBs are kind meh in pass coverage.  They’re on the slow side.  I know our corners are slow but at least the scheme plays into them being slow.  Our LBs are going to have a hard time keeping up with receivers and even tight ends who can burn them deep or on quick hitters.
    • The LBs are pretty solid but you’re right about the DBs.     Kenny and Blackmon are the only proven vets.  I expect them to bring in a vet S and wouldn’t mind them making a curtesy call to Gilmore.     If AR and JT stay healthy the O could be special.  Shane showed he can win with anyone.
