stop protecting him

 

I'm not. I think he gets a free pass a lot of the time because we pull out the win. But this one? You can't put it on him.

So is it on Luck if he puts the ball in someone's hand and they drop it? Is it Lucks fault I'd they fake punt and it's dropped? That first int was his fault.

I'm tired of all these Luck apologists. Who cares...the whole team sucked and that includes Andrew friggin Luck. Get over it. He has been subpar for the past 3-4 games now. He needs to improve his play along with everyone else. He is not above the Colts team. Right now...they all STINK!

and we couldn't just lose both hell no we get destroyed

Exactly...I won't feel better when we beat the Titans next week either. It will be hard for the Colts to make up for those losses outside of a miracle run in the post-season. Fat chance of that. Lol

Does it really matter? It's Luck...he is our best player. Duh? He has been sticking lately and the whole team has been as well. Big whoop. He is the best player on a team that has been playing some really lousy football for the past month of the season. Sorry to break it to you but he is no Brady or Peyton or Rogers or even Friggin Romo right now. Lol

Since you answered Luck, answer this please.

How many rushing yards the colts gained the past 3-4 games? Don't add Luck to the equation.

And how many points the defense allowed? The past 3-4 games? Don't add Luck's pick sixes.

Edit: He's not Brady or Rodgers or Manning but you're missing the point.

dont feel like looking it up...don't want to depress myself any further but I know they have most likely run for less than 100 yards without Luck. My point is just that the whole team is playing lost and that includes Luck right now. He is also leading the team in turnovers over the past 3-4 months. No one is clean here. They all need to get it together...and must shoulder the blame. Being the best player on the team doesn't exclude you or somehow put you above the rest of your team mates. If you were to ask Andrew himself he would probably admit he has to get better. That's the kind of guy he is. It's only his apologetic fans that don't seem to grasp this.

I know. But this stuff happens when you have no running game. That's how the whole team is feeling lost.

They can't run. The team usually 3 and out. The defense gets tired easily and allow points. The QB makes more mistakes(fact that luck leads the league in passing attempts).

I'm not exusing Luck at all. Pretty much no one except the special teams lol.

I'm saying is that the colts right now will never make the AFC championship game let alone wining it because they can't run the damn ball. They need to fix this problem. You can fix the defense later but damn fix the running game.

Edit: Rodgers have a running game. Peyton right now have a running game. Brady. Romo. Flacco. Ben.

They all do and most of them went to the Super Bowl and win. The colts need to fix their problem.

Yeah...we do need to fix the running game.  I definitely agree with you on that. All good QB's need a running game and right now we can't give Luck one.   I really do like Luck and am glad he is our QB.  I'm just really frustrated right now.  I want the whole team to play better and it makes me upset when someone says the Colts are all garbage except for Luck.  I know you didn't say that but the poster I initially quoted did. I apologize if I came off as a jerk towards you.

I know...   watching Sunday night football... 

 

Rodney Harrison just said...   "same story every week" ..       It's not just one player...   it is a culture thing.

 

I promise you all this locker room is way to loose for winning football.     OR ...  LEADERSHIP is non existent.   

 

one or the other.   

 

WOW....           Jim Harbaugh...   keep you cell on ...   OF ALL potential NFL jobs coming open...    INDY is by FAR the most attractive.        Oak, Mia, Chi, NYJ, ...    or INDY and Andrew LUCK?   And I am sure MONEY will not be an issue...

 

Just saying...

Is what it is. How do you average .3 yards per carry ?

Im probably the last guy on earth to complain about the refereeing in the NFL but today I gotta say those refs were bad. They missed obvious holding penalties and let the Cowboys do pretty much what they wanted. When that defensive lineman can have his fingers inside the quarterback's face mask to bring down and no flag is thrown, you know you're in for a long day.

I said it like ...    2 or 3 weeks ago...   "the last few games of the season are HUGE for Chuck" ...    And most giggled...  hmmm?

 

And I meant it..       I really believe...      he needs to show something.  

 

And it is getting worse and worse...     and the BIGGEST FA Coach of the last few years is just happening to come open.  One who has ties to INDY,.....

Heck I'd settle for RR.

    • I was watching some old draft videos regarding the Colts 2018 draft on youtube, and I saw an interesting comment in the comments section.  This is the video first.    In the comments section there is a 3 comment conversation started by Captain Luck. It says:   Captain Luck9 months ago (edited) Harold Landry was red flagged....bet. Josh Jackson was red flagged. Derius Guice was red flagged. Those are my guesses. Ballard went for the best player available with the best leadership and character. That's how the Cubs built it and Ballard is taking that same approach. If nothing else, he wants a locker room he can be proud of even if he's not drafting the guys other teams would based on talent. Exactly what the Pacers did too and look how well that worked out.   Jason Spears9 months ago Justin Pelkey if that's the case, it makes much more sense.   Captain Luck9 months ago Jason Spears I'm not sure but Ballard said that 45 prospects were automatically red flagged due to lack of scheme fit, lack of maturity/character, and injury history. I think that's why some of the picks lool like reaches. He was really strict about the type of player he was letting in the organization. I forget the Cubs GM name, but Ballard read his book last summer. The Cubs GM did the exact same thing. He looked at unique traits but more importantly brought in proven leaders. Ballard appears to be taking the same approach. We'll have to wait and see if it works.   I thought this was very interesting as I'm not sure if he purposely is following the Theo Epstein model or if that's out of coincidence. The most telling thing is that he red flagged 45 prospects due to lack of scheme fit, maturity/character, and injury history. I knew GM's did this to an extent, but Ballard is apparently very picky, to the extent that he just wants certain guys even if he isn't getting value. It's not just about BPA or need with him. It's about getting the exact guys he feels comfortable with at certain positions. I can only imagine how few guys that he's willing to take when it's our pick.    I couldn't find an article saying this info was 100% true, but no one said he was wrong either, and it makes sense. Just thought some people here might think this was interesting regarding Ballard, and it might reveal some of his drafting secrets that we can build mocks off of to emulate him.    
    • Great draft, but give some kudos to Frank for the way he bonded the team, created the locker room vibe, and turned them into winners. Great all round job. Hopefully we take the next step next season...
    • Yeah, losing Glenn and Diem really killed us for a long time until we drafted Anthony. We've hadn't had much luck at RT until this past season.
    • Yeah it was in the mid 2000s but they picked it up since AZ made the Sb and then the 49ers and Seahawks started becoming very good with their defense.   Now it’s the Rams turn, I think Seattle is still gonna be in there. AZ and SF still in rebuild mode.
    • People didn't appreciate just how good Tarik was until Tony Ugoh came along.
