It's worked better than continually trying these deep shots, from what I've seen.  From what I've seen thus far, the quick/short passing attack has worked better to move the chains.

I don't agree. They have tried to mix it up, but neither has been great. The penalties have killed a couple of drives.

He's jaded. Frustrated over watching the us stump our toes over the same ole deficiencies year after year. I don't think he hates em though.

Yep, when Irsay hired Grigson he talked about building a more balanced team. There is no difference between this team and any other Colts team over the last 15 years

The game planning has annoyed me so far. Go into a blustery, wet day in Buffalo against the team that lead the NFL in sacks last year... Only to immediately abandon the running game. I get it, Luck is a tremendous QB, but at least give him a chance to be efficient.

    • Normally I’m am against any of these big name trade or older trade ideas, but this one I could actually get behind. The age worries be a bit but if we could get him for a couple years, it’d give us a one two punch at TE like we need. 
    • Man, total bummer he is hurt but few of us are surprised.  I personally hope he is not resigned even on an incentive based deal. Every year he is hurt and his best season was barely over 1k yards without a top 5 OL that played the entire year.   He has given the Colts the best he could and his career will be downhill from here and will most likely be out of the league after 2-3 more seasons.  It’s unfortunate but this happens with RBs all the time. Please just move on and cut losses bc talented employees that never  live up to their potential are more aggravating than the bad ones. 
    • I wouldn't say he's assembled a D that are fits for zone. Rock was a cover/press corner. Willis comes from a press D. Blackmon comes from a D that's all about man coverage. Rhoades in MN used a lot of man C1, and even man a lot when in C2. MN could have changed this last year, but pretty sure they played a ton of man during Rhoades career (I know we have MN fans that can comment).    I was actually figuring we were going to play more man, or at least wanted to play more man. Flus hinted before last season started that we'd see more man, but the only game we really saw it was the KC game, against a crippled passing attack. I figured he wanted to beef up the DL with a few horses before he transitioned.    At the end of the day, the situation is so muddy, it's hard to tell. What we do know is that our zone D gives a ton of cushion and is soft as Charmin. Flus could still play C2 with press coverage instead of all the cushion. IMO, we probably have more guys from a C1 scheme, than C2, or at least those that played in C2 had a lot of press elements to them.   If anything, I think it's two things. 1) Charmin soft way to much cushion. It's really bad on 1st and 2nd downs at times. I can understand cushion on X and long, but we get ate up underneath by everyone on standard downs. And I've seen way to much cushion at times on 3rd and short, which is simply inexcusable.  And 2) we simply try to be too cute. If we were going to shrink the playbook anywhere, I'd do it for the DBs.   Regardless, I don't see this as a Ballard problem. I see this as a Reich/Flus problem. If we're going to play C2, we need play it with more press and less zone. And against teams like Jax, we probably would have been better off playing C1.
    • I thought Claypool looked fast and strong in the Steeler game. Didnt see much of him or Pittman in college but Claypool passes my “eye test” higher for no teal reason other than what i’ve seen.  I was wondering what the “experts” thought made Pittman “better” for us.  Another words, why Reich and Ballard preferred Pittman.
    • In some ways it has grown on me.  Sounds “old-timey.” ”The Washington Football Team.”   It puts the emphasis on the home location.... Washington.   There’s actually probably a unique marketing angle that could be inventive, progressive, and refreshing........: thenagain, its Dan Snyder.
