Pep Hamilton & Greg Manusky press conferences


Recommended Posts

Hamilton: Darrelle Revis. Understand he's really good football player, but we have guys that are good enough. They can win 1-on-1 matchups.

Can they?   They sure didn't do much of it last week.  And they won't be doing it against Revis.

 

There better be more of a scheme to help guys get open instead of simply relying on them to win there matchup one on one.

Todd Bowles on preparing for Andrew Luck: "Watch Buffalo Bills & Colts tape." #winning

lol

Bingo

Smh I really wanna pick us to win this game but just can't find the reason to do so

Hilton probably isn't playing, Luck is out here throwing the ball 18 straight times instead of running the ball, and now we only have 3 active CB's heading into this game

Smh, 0-2 is looking likely

I sure hope so. Hope Anderson builds off of his strong debut.

I think the pass rush will be better cause now it's actually rush the QB. I think too much emphasis was out on Tyrod Taylor scrambling so we played contain opposed to rush

Fitzpatrick is less mobile. I expect good games from Anderson & Walden

Hopefully Pep will make in-game adjustments against the blitz this week and actually run blitz beating plays.

He ran them last week, just never came back to them. The bubble screen worked, never came back to it

Screen pass where Luck missed Frank Gore wide open, never came back to that either

It really was just a god awful sloppy game by the offense. They really gotta bounce back

P.S. Someone tell Manusky stop putting Butler outside. Well, Butler may not even play so doesn't matter this week

I am not too sure our coordinators know how to scheme for specific players strengths and weaknesses based on what we have seen for the last 3 years.

Three active corners?

 

Vonte is one...    Butler is two....     aren't Brown and Price 3 and 4?

 

Tolder is out,   Smith is out.     Is there someone else out that I missed?

Some are assuming Butler may not play with a hip issue I think.  He'll probably be there though

Butler

Toler

Smith

All didn't practice today. One more practice tomorrow since we're Monday night. If those 3 don't practice tomorrow, we're going into that game with 3 active CB's

I've noticed Pep has a habit of never coming back to plays that worked well.  It's odd to be honest, he(or whoever it is) has been doing that since last season.

It is odd. Especially for an NFL coach. That makes no sense for someone to not do what's working

You ever noticed that we get at least 5 to 8 yards every single time we run that toss sweep to the left and Pep never seems to run it again for the entire game it seems at time.  If he does it's maybe once or twice at the most.  That' just an example.

Their excuse was that the Bills were crowding the line and daring us to run.  Which also means they felt that our receivers couldn't beat them in the short time Andrew had to throw.  

 

Well, Pep has to have plays ready to counter that defense this week, including that toss sweep.  A lot of coaches would run that play until it's stopped or the D starts overplaying it.  Then make them pay for having them out of position.

I mentioned this in another thread, but can we honestly criticize Pep for the play calling when Andrew can change it to whatever he wants?  It could be it's Pep giving Andrew three lousy plays to choose from, sure, so no matter what Andrew chooses from, it will be a bad choice and we can blame Pep.

 

But as long as Andrew has cart blanche, I don't see how we can be so certain what Pep is calling.

We really don't know anything. We don't know the game plan going in, we don't know what's discussed on the sidelines, etc.. But if Luck is throwing too much it's up to the coaching staff to let him know.

I agree.  Without saying so, it sounded like Pags and Pep were saying just that.  Gore as well when he talked about his success against 8-9 man fronts.  I think Andrew needs to run the ball more, no matter what the defense is trying to dictate.

Colts rarely lose 2 in a row. They will be much better prepared, hungry, and at home. Colts win by 13. Book it. Remember this post.

Ok, I should've said "called blitz beating plays more than one time a piece" lol

Luck HAS to find the open spot, when they blitz (They will)

 

To me this is mostly a timing issue

 

Luck didnt have it last week with his WRs

 

When they send 7 guys... someone is open

 

Luck needs to just slow down

 

We also need to run some draws and screens, (AND THEN BLOCK the second line) that will slow the blitzes down

    • IMO he was not head and shoulders ahead of Manning. He was on better teams.  Manning set the table for Brady and offensive coordinators in todays NFL. He changed the game. 
    • Darius Leonard would probably be cheaper on the tag than if they extended him now.
    • Super Bowl 15. Jim Plunkett (MVP), 3 TDs Super Bowl 18. Jim Plunkett (Marcus Allen), 1 TD Super Bowl 20. Jim McMahon (Richard Dent), 0 TDs Super Bowl 22. Doug Williams (MVP), 4 TDs Super Bowl 25. Jeff Hostetler (Ottis Anderson), 1 TD Super Bowl 26. Mark Rypien (MVP), 2 TDs Super Bowl 35. Trent Dilfer (Ray Lewis), 1 TD Super Bowl 37. Brad Johnson (Dexter Jackson), 2 TDs Super Bowl 47: Joe Flacco (MVP), 3TDs Super Bowl 52: Nick Foles (MVP), 3 TDs   Here are some average QB's who won the Super Bowl.  Great supporting casts.
    • If they're looking at the absolute "must re-sign" players coming up ( Leonard, Smith, Q), and also want to make a splash in FA, I can see a restructure for a player they expect to be here for a while, such as Kelly. The cap room could get awfully small in a hurry under the above scenario. A little breathing room is a good thing.   
    • No...but I would have done that move for the two QBs drafted after him. We would just have to assume that Ballard is not Ryan Pace and that he wouldn't draft Tribuskaye.   But of course it's a gamble. Addressing QB is a challenge nearly all teams must face. And it's what separates teams. That's what made KC a perennial playoff team that would lose on WC weekend into the #1 team in the NFL. Or takes a perennial 8-8 team like BUF and makes them into a team that can compete with a team like KC.    Trading (with conditions) for a QB coming off a terrible season is a gamble as well. It's just less of a gamble because Reich knows Wentz and because of a perceived lower cost...and because they can bail pretty quickly. Which is exactly why it's a half-measure. They know they aren't committing to Wentz any further than the first 75% of next season. I can understand the appeal of that...but with a position like QB...I am not convinced it will get them where they want to go.   But we will just have to see it play out.
