Please Do Something Different!

Come out and run the ball the first 10 plays. Start Orlovsky. Run a double reverse. Have a half back option pass. Play a 3 man line with Hughes and Wheeler rushing from the standing position. Fire Jim Caldwell and promote Tressel. Do SOMETHING different. What is so frustrating is that each week, the Colts line up as if it is week one and Peyton Manning is playing and they do the same things over and over again. Same mistakes, same results. I know they aren't tanking it but it comes across like they really have no desire to try to shake up things to win. After all, haven't we seen enough of Curtis Painter to know the guy isn't a starting NFL QB? Could anyone be worse? What is there to lose at this point???

I'll never forget the brilliance of Bill Walsh. During the strike season of 1987, I think it was, his ran a wishbone offense. Why? It was the easiest to teach scab players and it fit the personnel.

yes i agree we need to try something, also we need to get ready for next year and look at the players we have in game situtations, try everyone see what they can do , then keep them, trade them for draft picks or cut them

I like the run heavy scenario, but starting Orlovsky is a little early. Start Orlovsky if they see improvement in the bye week, but Curtis should still be the starter. I like your ideas, but I think's it's too much to do: 3 man rush? Promote Tressel? A little unrealistic.

I don't understand why we aren't switching everything up either. We know what we have done for the first 9 games has made us win less. There is no reason to not bring in exotic plays. We are just so conservative it's pathetic. I really think Polian is the head coach of this team. The rest are just yes men to him. Hence why we suck so bad absent Manning.

    • Of course i dont want them to win. I just dont think its going to a massive blowout like most people are predicting. Then anyone who had been here for an extended period of time knows when this team doesn't perform the way people think it should,  this forum becomes a toxic sludge pool lol. To me its absolutely comedic watching the same people with completely polar opposite opinions on a week to week basis depending on teams performance.
    • Of course I dont want them to win. I just highly doubt it's going to be a huge blowout like most people are predicting. Then as per usual it will be fun to come and watch all the people implode and talk about how bad we are.
    • On the 3rd clip  of the bottom tweet you can see that Nelson has great balance.  It looks like he was going to try to engage the defender and then held back to get closer.   Well, either that or he was just trying to scare him away, lol.
    • Actually, that was the concern with him coming into the league.  He was seen as fragile and that is probably why he slid to #15. Ballard took a chance and it didnt work out
    • After a dominating performance at home against the Vikings, the Colts were showered with some praise of the national writers.    NFL.com: 16    ESPN: 16   CBSSports: 17   Bleacher Report: 17   Sports Illustrated: 19   Yahoo Sports: 16
