So Who Thinks We Might Have Won 1-2 If They'd Pulled Painter Sooner?


Recommended Posts

Worst Pass D's my butt. They may allow yards, but not a whole lotta points. And if they took their foot off the pedal, then why did they have to send Tommie boy out for the last play of the game? Because we were making them a little nervous. This whole garbage time thing floors me.

sigh.... It never ceases to amaze me how uninformed "some" Colt fans are.

I know Painter started out pretty good the first two games, then sucked. Will Dan do the same? Who thinks we might have won at least 1-2 of those close games like last week if the coaching staff had gotten their heads out of their butts and put Dan in sooner?!

there was no excuse for Painter to start the Panthers game at the very least.The Colt's ,for all their success,tend to fall in love with their own players because they have too,and stick way too long with some of them.As for Orlavsky,I thought he looked decent when he was on a pathetic Lions team,better than many on here gave him credit for.

It was just baffling to watch Painter try to play QB this season and see Caldwell just standing there defending his bad play. Could we have won more games with Orlovsky as the starter? I don't know but I would sure as heck would have liked to have had the chance. Just another example of the worst head coach in the NFL in action.

Listen, people were saying this in week 2-3. Saying had we pulled Collins for Painter we might have some wins. This isn't a good football team right now, regardless of who is QB. Probably 6-6 with Peyton even. It's ok to have a down year, I accept that, but this is a little much and requires cleaning house.

you just proved my point, albeit in a rather rude way. They have allowed 16 passing tds in 11 games, as many or fewer than 16 other teams. Which puts them squarely in the middle of the pack defensively, clearly not one of the "worst" as you say.

Rude? NE is last in total D for a "reason"... oh and by the way, they have played the easiest schedule in the NFL.... or one of....

I get it, your a glass half full guy. But face it, this team is not very good right now.

Well you totally missed the point. Might very clearly said they give up yards but don't allow a lot of points. Then you post a link to a comparison of yardage allowed and make a statement like

. Might is not uninformed because he already said the Pats give up a lot of yards, which is all your link proved. So essentially, you agreed with Might and posted a link proving Might to be right and then you called him uninformed. :rolleyes:

It continues to amaze me how condescending some people can be even in situations where they are the ones who didn't get it.

No but I do know that they could have 6 o 7 wins had they pulled there head coach weeks ago.

I saw nothing yesterday which leads me to believe they would have won any games yet at all.

The opponent was up 31-3 before they took their foot off of the pedal and could have scored much more very easily.

If they would have scored more points and blown us out, like they knew they could then Caldwell might be fired and that could really hurt them next year when we have a real coach. Mickey Mouse could have thrown for 300 yards in that game.

Thanks Jason. At least somebody got my point! :yay:

    • Fair point.   No quibble.       
    • I could easily be wrong about this,  but I think you're high on Nelson, Leonard and Smith.    Maybe not by a lot,  but by enough that the Colts will have more money left than you think.   ***I think Q can pick the length of his deal.   I'm guessing he'll have the following options.  4/60 (15) or 5/80 (16) or 6/102. (17) ***I think Leonard is looking at roughly   4/56 (14)  5/75. (15) ***I think Smith is looking at                    4/50 (12.5)  5/65 (13)   The keys to all three deals are....   the signing bonus and the amount guaranteed at signing --- these two are often confused, but they are not the same.     
    • I'm not saying you don't need speed and/or power. I'm just pointing out college players rely on it too often because it works in college, but then find out without technique their not as efficient.
    • OK......      I'm not speaking to Basham at all.    Have seen zero film on him.   I was only trying to say that DL's using speed and/or power in the NFL have worked since the league began.    PLayers who don't with at least one of them typically don't last long in the NFL.    The ones who can win with both have long, successful careers.   More to the point, our whole defense is built on speed.   Especially on the defensive front.   Look at our DE's.   Houston uses both speed and power.    Autry uses both as he plays DE and DT.   Turay is a speed guy.   Banogu is a speed guy.   Lewis, is a bit like Autry in that he plays both DE and DT.    He's trying to use both to win.    We're trying to find DL who win with their first step.  Get even on step 2,  and pass the OL on step 3.       Do the D-Lineman need to develop better hand moves -- absolutely.   100 percent.   That's why Ballard says young DL often need 2-3 years to figure things out.    He just noted Jerry Hughes who didn't blossom until Year 4 with Buffalo.   We gave up on him too soon.    Sorry,  don't mean to belabor the point,  I wanted to read your response before I posted what I needed to say....   Thanks...  
    • You give him the same weapons as Watson had, he will.
