Would you care to share some examples? What plays in particular do you feel were suspect? 

Rolling Luck out to the right you cut off half the field so Balt can use the sidelines as another defender. Splitting Richardson out and trying to run a wr bubble screen with him.

So you're saying you should never roll a QB out to the right? Ever.

Using TRich in the passing game is actually something that's been fairly productive so I don't mind them trying something like this. Though it ended pretty badly.

That's 2 plays out of 80 so far...

nope running a wr bubble screen with your 230 lbs running back was not a great call. Overall the play calling was good just a few weird calls

So you started a thread to complain about two plays in a winning effort. You're edgy

I don't mind using him in the passing game just not o plays where you usually speed guys. Going with a middle screen would be better. Personally I would not roll a qb out. U cut off half the field when you roll him out. A straight drop back he has the whole field to scan

When you have a mobile QB who's good throwing on the run why not use a roll out?

I mean if it was such an ineffective play type we wouldn't see it in the NFL but yet we do week in week out.

Rolling Luck out helps keep the rush from hitting him. Did you even bother to watch the game?

More questionable play calling by Pep. All that matters is the W

C'mon man, don't you know it was the Ravens defense that made Pep make those playcalls. Give credit where credit is due.SMH

How dare a Colts fan on a Colts forum actually comment on mistakes or playcalling and not give the credit to the other teams....

never been a fan of them in general. I also objected to the bubble screens to Trent

I gathered but we're talking about roll outs, so aside from you're point about rolling out to the right why don't you like them? They are after all super effective plays when you have a mobile QB.

as I explained rolling out cuts off half the field and forces you to go in the direction you roll towards which makes it easier for the D. You never see a qb roll left and toss across his body to the right. Well at least you shouldn't. Straight dropback the D has to cover middle, left and right. Qb rolls to the left do u really have to cover the right? You can focus more to the left

Hmm I'd argue the pros (misdirection, opening up running lanes for the QB, helping freeze the D against the run) outweigh the negatives when used correctly.

Still either way 2 plays out of 80 is hardly worthy of calling the play calling suspect.

4th down I would have run a PAP since Balt was selling out for the run and Indy complied and ran it right at Balt. 2nd q 3rd and 7 and Luck tosses a 3 yard pass to Wayne on a crossing pattern. I guess that was his checkdown

The first your criticising with the benefit of hindsight... Running in short yardage situations way way more successful than passing but fine it didn't come off. Who's to say PA would either.

Are you blaming Pep for Luck checking down?!

Pep called a good game, the O is putting up good numbers.

Not to mention I honestly thought Bradshaw picked up the first down. Thought he got a bad spot and unfortunately there wasn't a clean enough replay to prove it.

well since Balt sold out on the run it is safe to say that Pa would have worked. Sneaking Fleener or even a big old lineman out in the flat. Blaming? not for that but for being put in 3rd and long perhaps. Like u said they r putting up good nubers

    • I'm a little uncomfortable with it. We all love having a really good offensive line, but realistically how valuable is having Braden Smith or Ryan Kelly over an average NFL right tackle and center? Personally, outside of the left tackle position because they're hard to find, I wouldn't love paying just good offensive linemen big money. And obviously I like Braden and Ryan but they are just good.    Nelson is obviously exceptional and you have to pay him. That's kind of how I'd look at it with the O-Line. Pay the outlier guys who are special the big bucks and the rest I feel like you're good if you just find solid guys who aren't liabilities year in year out. 
    • Cubs win, beat the Nationals 7-3. Nice to get a win over the former Cub Jon Lester who takes the loss. Cubs are now 20-20 at .500 so we are maintaining so far through May within close distance of the 1st place Cards who are off tonight. Just 2.5 games back of 1st now.   Here are the NL Central Division standings through May 17th, 2021:   1. Cards 23-18 2. Brewers 21-20 (2 back) 3. Cubs 20-20 (2.5 back) 4. Reds 19-20 (3 back) 5. Pirates 17-23 (5.5 back)     Fly the Flag @HOZER
    • If Pittman and Campbell both breakout this year the Colts offense could be something special. DBs won't be able to just hone in on Hilton. I don't know what his stats will be but I think it'll be close to 18 than 19, 20.
    • So, let's get this out of the way at the beginning.     Carson Wentz is our first round pick for 2022.    I'm guessing we will be picking roughly in the same spot, maybe a little later...   Where do we go from there?     Here's my first look....    I think of it as the more toys for Wentz edition...   1.   Wentz 2.    TE      Rumor is Doyle will retire after this season.   Frank loves TE's, so let's give him one that can really make an impact. 3.    CB     How long will Rhodes and Carrie be able to deliver high level play.    Feels like it's time to face that. 4.    WR    I thought we'd spend higher than a 7 on a WR in the '21 draft.    This may be Hilton's last year.   Still lots of young question marks. 5.    RB     Will we re-sign Hines?    Maybe?    Likely?    How about Wilkins?    With questions here,  I think a 5 might bring us a decent RB. 6.    OL     Depth to stash away on the PS as I expect Fries to be. 7.    LB     More depth?    How long will Adams and Franklin remain with the Colts?   I'm sure some of my draftnik friends have some ideas about the next class.    What do you see the Colts doing in 2022?
