Pat Kirwan is calling you out.

Recommended Posts

Listening to NFL radio now and the first thing I hear is Pat Kirwan calling out Colts fans. He initially says Colts fans are hitting the panic button way to early and, quite frankly, being pretty immature.

Talking about how blessed we've been with manning and now luck. The rest of the country, especially browns and raiders fans are laughing at us if we are panicking this quickly. Colts fans use to not panic so easily, even last year, so why now?

Says that the media hype, especially in indy, have blown this team way or of proportion and fed the fans into this frenzy. Now that we aren't steamrolling every team, all of a sudden the world is ending.

Way to go everyone.

It's not that we aren't steamrolling every team, it's that we're laying down in front of a steam roller and giving the thumbs up

That's cool. Those franchises have low expectations. Also we don't need to be steamrolling anyone but we've looked awful to start this season. Our last 3 games has been awful.

Let's be fair, those were two of the worst performances, if not the worst, this regime has put up and they were back to back.

Being shutout in the first half back to back games means nothing? We're supposed to be calm about that?

Cool, didn't know that

That Steelers game and the Patriots games have been worse IMO.

 

At least our injured defense had a spine.

Dwayne Allen even admits that this 0-2 is different than last years 0-2, to me that is pretty telling, and as far as the panic button goes, only sure way to stop that is to just win baby!

I really put the Pats in their own column, issues with them are well known. Steelers game is debatable, the defense was awful but the offense kept us in it until late, iirc.

Either way, my point stands.

Jesus. Look at our start and tell me you're okay with it. You probably can't, just like the rest of us. No ones panicking, we're just sick and tired of the same old % taking place without any signs of being fixed. It takes a special kind of special to look at our first 2 offensive performances and think "wow I'm OK with this, and anyone who disagrees with me is hitting the panicked button" and the same goes for the pass rush. Also we played 2 mediocre teams as well. The great defense excuse does not fly since we're supposed to be the best offense and a "contender". Contenders win nonsense games such as these, they win against great teams too. You know what we are? A mediocre team as of now.

They started 0-2 last year. I think the Colts should be fine. They've ran into teams that are well coached on the defensive side of the ball.

 

Next week is a 'must win' situation and they should be able to pull out.

"Not steamrolling every team" is one thing. Playing competitively is quite another. The Colts horrific performance wasn't an optical illusion. It was real. And until it changes, there's every reason to be very concerned.

I feel like that has been telling of the fan base over the years though. There is always a bunch of terrible towels in the stadium every time we play the Steelers, and there are always a lot of the opposing teams jersey's in the stands of LOS. I'm not ripping any fans on here, because if you take time to post on a forum you're clearly a dedicated fan. The majority of Colts fans are pretty fair weather though.

You can't honestly tell me you thought they'd start off 2-0. And to call those 2 teams mediocre is insulting to them, neither of those teams, outside of the QB position, are even close to mediocre/nonsense games.

I still think 11-5 is a possibility. 6-0 in the Division is key though. Colts are undefeated in the Division over the last 2 seasons. Andrew still owns the Division until proven otherwise.

I actually thought we would be 2-0 but losing to the Bills and Jets isn't a shame. They both are Good. Colts have been Very Good though for 3 years but apparently not Great yet. 2 games we should still win.

Yes I honestly can tell you that. We've played the jets before under Rex Ryan and lost. I truly expected our team, with superbowl aspirations, to come out and beat the Bills/Jets. It's not insulting to call them mediocre. They're handicapped by non existent qbs; this kills football teams . Look at how Tom Brady pushed the bills crap in and made their defense look mediocre. I'm sorry that I expected our team to be at least near the patriots level, you know because we got manhandled by them 3 games in a row embarrassingly. I guess I have higher expectations for my football team?

Last year, we didn't hear rumors of a Grigson/Irsay/Pagano fallout either.  We have reason to be a bit upset.

Couldn't have said it better myself. Watching that game last night, if I didn't know any better, I would've thought it was a preseason matchup. Seeing large sections of field level seats empty during the 1st half of a MNF game is unacceptable to me. No energy, no enthusiasm for the team to feed off of, just sitting down and watching the game like it's a picnic. You won't see that at any other NFL stadium, anywhere, especially a MNF game.

 

I'm not suggesting berating opposing team fans and knifing people outside the stadium after the game, but Lucas Oil is not a daunting atmosphere for opposing teams, at all. At a Kansas City, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Oakland, Denver, or even a Cincinnati game, those crowds are so loud that the TV cameras shake.

I disagree. That was one game where Ben Roethlisberger had the game of his life, as bad as the defense looked, Big Ben was even better. Look at the game before that Steelers game, shut out the Bengals. Game after, hung 40 on Giants who scored some garbage time points but defense played well. The Colts followed up an atrocious offensive performance with an even worse one. Plus, this team is built around the offense. No offense = no win.

We had absolutely zero pass rush.

He's 100% correct.

Yal are 100% incorrect.

 

We've seen this trend the first few years of Andrew Luck & Chuck Pagano's tenure. We were shut out of the endzone during the first half of the last two games. We've look absolutely pathetic over 10 times in the last 3 years and 2 weeks... That is about 20% of the games we play in, we look embarrassing. Whether it's getting blown out, or being held out of the endzone so long while digging such a vast hole for our offense that we look like a JV squad out there.

 

If you believe the OP you are in denial about the state of our team. We are way over-rated and I really hope this team finishes 2nd or worse in the AFC south, so that we can get the wake up call we need. Hopefully we can get a group of coaches in here that know what the heck they're doing.

Doesn't sound like it. Sounds more like you're jumping ship after 2 games because the offense isn't putting up the gaudy numbers right out of the gate that you'd envisioned. You don't know what's gonna happen, they could win the next 3 in a row, and legitimately have their act together by the time New England gets to town.

Is "gaudy numbers" defined as scoring more than 0 points in the first half of a game? Or being ranked higher than dead last offensively? If that's the case, I'm disappointed that they're not putting up "gaudy numbers".

Seriously, how the hell can you claim that people who expected more out of the offense than this expected "gaudy" numbers? Give me a break.

Apparently the definition of a spoiled fan is someone who expects their team to not consistantly play like trash and actually be competitive in their games. Such lofty expectations. Get real.

When you're supposed to have an elite offense that makes you a SB contender and you're sitting dead last in points scored, people tend to be concerned.

Chuck Pagano did NOT throw Andrew Luck under the bus!  

 

I think if you ever read something from Pagano and your initial reaction is "Wow!   Pagano just threw Luck under the bus!"   Then you need to stop and re-think your position.

 

It has never happened and will never happen.    Period, end of story.

 

It's a complete misread. 

 

There is a less than zero chance Pagano throws Luck under the bus.

 

Now....   throwing Grigson under the bus is another story...................

I really like and respect Pat Kirwan, but I think that's a bad thing to say on his part.  There's nothing wrong with having high expectations and expecting to win.  We had Super Bowl aspirations coming into this season and couldn't beat 2 AFC opponents.  If you want to be the best, you can't have bad performances.  The Colts have had back-to-back bad performances and have nothing promising to show.  People say we started 0-2 last year and still made the AFCCG, but we were actually competitive in those games whereas we got overwhelmed and dominated in these two games.

    • Good article and I believe JB will be the starter in 2020 for at least the first half of the season.  But I do want to point out one thing, Player A keeps talking about how bad an ineffective the offense is this year.  Fans of player B talk about how great he is.
    • Luck and Hoyer would have never been on the roster together, so your "4th" is very creative lol...    And no, he wouldn't have been on the roster if Brissett didn't get hurt, but we wouldn't have traded for a 3rd string 3rd round guy either 2 years ago had Luck not got hurt. So what's your point.... Kelly was signed originally to likely stay on the PS for the year to prove he could behave, not come in and start or be the backup.   Bottom line, Kelly won a back up job in Denver because of his play, and lost it because of his behavior, not because of his play. He got a second chance with an NFL club here, and looked good in pre season, better than Brissett looked last year in pre season (the only clear comparables). So say whatever you want, but understand that all your criticism is pure opinion which is based on zero.   I get it, you like Brissett, but he's already lost a good majority of the fan base. Attendance has been impacted, and ticket sales will be impacted. It is what it is. His stats in just about every major category are below the median (21st QBR, 28th YPG, 23rd AVG), and even the INT stat that everyone keeps throwing out to say he's "good" is actually very very average if you look at INT/Attempt %. And this has been the case all year, not just since "injuries" happened. He's simply below average currently, with a ceiling of average.    As far as undercutting the QB... I've never said start Kelly. I said play him if Monday's game get out of hand. And honestly if they've already decided to draft a QB, undercutting him is irrelevant. The media, fans, and mocks are all trending towards the Colts drafting a QB, so things are only going to get tougher for the FO and JB when it comes to question. He's already took issue with the "audition" question, so pretty sure he's feeling the heat.    And lastly,,, the Colts made Kelly one of the highest paid PS players in the league. Why do that if he's a nothing. There are plenty of nothing QBs out there they could have paid the minimum. They could have simply kept Waker if that were the case. So assuming the FO does like him, and assuming he is keeping his nose clean, there is absolutely value in seeing what he can do in game situations, and especially if they've already decided that JB is not the future.    
    • I am pretty high on him, too(maybe you meant my post in another thread ) he could even be available in the 3rd round. Sit him a year behind JB, let him learn and see what he's got. Could be a real value pick. At least, you will have a cheap backup and i think a 3rd round pick is worth the risk. 
    • That is an angle that is possible.  And it makes some sense for Houston, not so much for Funchess.  Neither were considered Tier 1 FAs.  But again, is a possibility and one I had not considered fully before, thanks. I think the COlts reain his rights whether he gave the money back or not.  But @Superman knows more about that than I do. I'm not sure how thinking Luck quit is assuming the worst.   But oh well.
    • Baltimore Ravens :   Ray Lewis LB Ed Reed S Johnathan Ogden OT    Baltimore Colts :  Lenny Moore RB Gino Marchetti DE Jim Parker G John Mackey TE    Others : Ted Hendricks Baltimore Colts Super Bowl 5 Champion but mainly known as Raider.  Rod Woodson Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl 35 Champion but mainly known as Steeler.    Possible upcoming nominees:    Baltimore Colts :   Johnny Unitas QB Raymond Berry WR    We’ve been lucky to see some pretty darn good players pass through Baltimore.
