Put Boom Herron out there and give him some touches

 

I want to keep Richardson on the field. We need him to get more experience, and he is getting better every week. In my mind, this is a project that we can't afford to take our foot on the gas with.

We've given Richardson a lot of touches.  I wouldn't mind giving him and Bradshaw some rest.

 

Where did our defense go?

wow another roughing the passer on us?

 

In my opinion, all three calls on both teams have been good calls, and the refs have been consistent. Not that you didn't think they were. Just pointing it out.

We played pass that entire drive. I don't think we ever came out of the nickel.

    • Scheme...and stubbornness to stick with it. I don't have an axe to grind with the coaching staff, but this is my observation:   I think the current defensive scheme works extremely well against bad teams with bad OLs and QBs. The Colts are able to get pressure with their front 4 and can sit back in zone and make plays on the ball. And then they get a good lead and are able to do this even more. These games lift the overall stats for the season...and it's what many people tend to remember. But it's an incomplete view of the defense.   Because as the schedule gets tougher, teams also start to adjust...and then you have a precipitous drop-off in performance over the course of the season. You also see this in-game as well later in the season (with slow starts and then the Colts roaring back to somehow win).    So which defense are the Colts?    1st 8 games (2020) - 63% completion - 206 passing yds/game - 10 TD/11 INT - 76 passer rating - 3.3 yds/carry - 6 rushing TDs   Last 8 games (2020) - 68% completion - 277 passing yds/game - 14 TD/4 INT - 98 passer rating - 4.1 yds/carry - 10 rushing TDs   It's a fair question to ask. Because there wasn't any high-profile injuries (other than Hooker at the beginning). The defense over the back half of the season wasn't anywhere near a top 10 defense.   Interestingly, a very similar thing happened to the offense in 2019 with JB at QB. Obviously they didn't have the same expectations, but they were really good earlier in the season (against bad pass defenses)...but then fell off tremendously as the schedule got tougher and teams adjusted to the offense.   So you have different sides of the ball in different seasons...with similar levels of regression.   Talent is part of it...but it would also seem to me like some combo of scheme and stubborn coaching mindset is the big culprit here.   
    • I voted Patmon and Dulin.  My gut tells me they wouldn't have kept Patmon on the 53 but inactive all of last year if they weren't seeing something they could develop.  We knew he was a development type player when he was drafted... with all the injuries we had last year, I think they would've sent him to the PS unless they were very concerned he'd be scooped up and we'd lose talent (they seemed to be fine bouncing guys like M. Johnson, Harris, etc. back and forth from the PS and those guys actually suited up on Sundays).     Then, I voted 7 WRs (at least to start).  Harris reminds me quite a bit of Hines - very explosive with the ball in his hands and can probably play that hybrid RB/WR role.  I know it'll be tough to keep 7 WRs, especially if we keep 4 RBs (Taylor, Hines, Wilkins and Mack), but I could see Mack starting the year on PUP as they ease him back from a bad injury.   Stachan has ridiculous size and very good speed.  He was dominant at the DII level, though IMO DII college FB is worse than D3 college football and he'll have some major adjusting to do at the NFL level.      @EastStreetI get your logic of letting Dulin go b/c of Rodgers' success in the return game... that said, I think Dulin is more valuable on STs as a gunner than a return man.     Finally, I voted yes on the PC question - I think we'll see him bounce around a bit this year and I hope we get to see him stay healthy for once.  The kid shows flashes when he's on the field.
    • After reading up I would say it is closer to 90% than 50% for NFL Caliber players to return, so I'm not worried about that. But you are right about how will his performance will be affected we have no idea, I think we will see him return to practice at the end of August but won't see him cleared to play till end of September/early October. 
    • Respectfully, I don't know which team you've been watching if it's not apparent to you. Also it won't totally make up for a lack of talent, but it DOES make a tangible difference. A close 4th quarter can be decided by very very little.  
    • Why not put Fisher at LG and Big Q at LT?
