Yeah. He really struggled last year throwing for 4500 yards and 40 TDs.

Reading comprehension is important. I explained why he's looked fine. It's when an average QB regressed with bad coaching is why you see what you are seeing.

That would be the problem, those plays are not there for the most part.  Pep is not calling them.

Actually, he is. Yes, he does not call 5 slants, 5 hitches, 5 flats. But he calls pass concepts with routes underneath.

The Colts seem to have problems with any team that is coached well on the defensive side of the ball. 

 

 

I know, everyone trashes Rob Ryan (myself included) but it looks like he prepared well for this game. 

 

 

While a lot of people are bashing Andrew Luck, I still think he's a great quarterback. The problem is, the Colts can't really beat anyone outside of throwing the ball all game, and they struggle with teams that are well coached on the defensive side of the ball, that can really prepare for it (as seen today with how Rob Ryan is dialing in all the blitzes)

Competent coaches understand Luck will give you the game if you blitz him and that this team panics in general. I tried saying it last week and of course got called skip Bayless and among other insults but whatever lol

Made the worst ranked defense look like top 5. Pep needs fired...today

 

 

Our defense played really well against Atlanta last week, so it's not just the Colts. 

 

 

This Saints defense is a lot better than the stats say, and in the past 2 games they've improved greatly. I think they just might finally be getting it together.

    • Because I’ve been a Colts fan for a long time and Jim Irsay has never had an issue spending money.  Ballard has also said over and over again he was saving his money to pay his own.  This isn’t breaking news.  So rather buy into some idea that he was fine with spending money under Tobin, Polian, and Grigson but is no longer fine with spending money under Ballard just doesn’t add up when you look at his history and what Ballard said.  It’s much more logical to assume that’s he’s spending what Ballard wants like he has with his previous GMs especially when the GM tells you he doesn’t believe in splash free agents and is saving his money to sign his own.   Irsay doesn’t negotiate the contracts.  Ballard does so contract structuring is done by Ballard and Ballard has done it in away to give him cap flexibility that is going to allow him to keep guys like Nelson, Leonard, Smith and others over the next couple of years.    Also Jim Irsay is worth 3 billion dollars he’s not hurting for money.   You want to see an organization that doesn’t want to spend money look across town where Simon won’t even let the Pacers look at the luxury tax.  That’s an owner who doesn’t want to spend.
    • I’m not sure why you find it hard to accept that the Colts may have cash flow problems?  Not that they can’t manage them, but still….   Irsay is one of the few owners who doesn’t have any other source of big income.   No high tech company.  No real estate development.   No oil and gas.   His wealth is owning the Colts.   That’s it.    Sure he may he may spend money, but these last five years he now uses a pay-go system that lends itself to managing money.  We used to give bigger SB’s under Grigson.   Now,  we give either small or no signing bonuses.   Very few teams do that.  And we’re a very small market franchise.   You weren’t the least bit surprised to see DeForest Buckner accept a ZERO signing bonus?   I sure was.     Point of clarification:  none of what I’ve written is proof of anything.   But I think it’s at least worth considering, and you seem completely unwilling to even do that.  I confess find that surprising. 
    • Just because they had money left over doesn’t mean Irsay had a problem spending it had Ballard wanted too.  It doesn’t take that hard of a look back at Irsay’s history of owner to see he has zero problem spending what his GM wants to spend.  
    • That's not exactly true if you consider cap space left over. IIRC, we had the most unspent or near most unspent over a 3-4 year period just recently (IIRC, 16, 17, 18, 19). Pretty sure we had 40+M unspent two years in a row.   IIRC, we carried over the most in the league again this year at around 30M.   It was also speculated that we 1) didn't ask Luck for money back, AND 2) gave JB such a big raise, was because we would have been too far under the 89% rule had we not done both 1 and 2.     
    • Regardless Irsay has never been shy about spending to make the Colts better.  So either way the first point that started all this is irrelevant.
