Yes it is and terrible But we don't need a addict running our team!

Turn it over to someone who doesn't have issues AND last name not irsay!

 

That's the issue, technically it's not "our" team so good luck with having someone not named Irsay running the show.

Too bad I already have tickets, flight, and hotel bought and paid for in Green Bay in a few weeks.

If Grigson and Pagano are still there, I will be wearing green and yellow...

On top of this I lose in fantasy football by 10 points because mccoy and tate decide to have 30+ point games. Tate hasn't had over 10 until tonight. Wth

Can we just lock down the forum to spare us listening to all the little kids complaining about losing a tough game because they're spoiled brats?

Are we spoiled or frustrated that the Colts can't field a competitive team even with a great QB and multiple years to get it done? 

 

This is more than just one game. It's the years that have been wasted by our coach and GM. There are no excuses for how bad this team is.

Don't like don't read. Nothing spoiled here, this team stinks .

I'm sorry I don't happen to agree with the majority who thinks it's all coaching. I don't agree with all the knee jerk reactions of "omg fire everyone". Changes need to be made but cleaning house isn't the answer at this point.

I'm frustrated too. But look at the injuries. We were without our 2 of our top 3 WRs and our main TE. Our line was in its umpteenth configuration. Coaches can only do so much. I would consult a witch doctor before cleaning house.

This is the real question, do you trust Pagano to develop the young players we have?

 

You can blame this game on the O or the D or the coaches.  But to me this game was loss due to discipline & organization.  Too many penalties.  Discipline penalties.  Illegal man downfield.  Off sides.  Holding.  False start x 4.  This team is not disciplined right now and it shows.  Same goes for the tackling.

The NFL is so lucky that football is a great sport.  They've made so many stupid decisions with how they handle player punishments and fines that most other companies would have gone bankrupt due to lack of support.  But they're so lucky football is great and people continue to watch and support it

 

Love this!

 

... & the rules!!!! Always changing the rules!  

 

Its a physical game.. I hate that they've taken that aspect out of it. And from someone who has so much pain in my body at 29 years old FROM FOOTBALL (I don't want to come off like I'm trying to sound like a macho man because it truly feels like it's wrecking my life and driving me insane from the nagging pains... and I don't want to see anyone hurt or laid out like collie) i just don't get it anymore.

You are the worst kind of "fan".  I get it.  We lost. We suck.  But to cheer for the other team? Really?   Seriously?   The NFL is cyclical.  We may suck for  3 years, win a Super Bowl,  and suck for a few more.  Just ask the Ravens.  At the end of the season, the number of losses league wide equals the number of wins.  Every team is trying.  The Colts, Pats, Steelers, and Pack have been amazing.  But guess what, the Ravens have 2 SB, the Seahawks one, the Broncos one recently.  I support firing Grigs and Pags, but we are 3 yrs away from contending and luck's window is 6-8 years.   That is the reality

That's all true but these coaches and our GM can't get it done. The Texans and Oswieler especially, are terrible. We need some sort of change. Fire Pagano for starters right now and get ready for next season.

You very well may be right but firing the coach is a almost certainty if giving up. 2 games back is a tall order for this team but like 2006 taught me, getting the right players together at the right time can do wonders.

Okay, I'm going to look at the bright side of all this. We are playing out this season to get a top draft pick. Hopefully a stud pass rusher early. And a solid cb early in the second rd. 

And no way will Grigson and Pagano still be with the Colts organization after this horrible season. 

So here's to next season Colts fans!!!!

Far from being the worst "fan". If we were simply a team that sucks with not much talent, sure. I will root for them every day as long as we are trying to get better. With this team, that is not the case. We have two individuals that are running the team to the ground for the last two years at least. I cannot root for one more game with Pagano at the helm. Sure we have injuries, sure we have good players making stupid plays, but his coaching has been deplorable for far too long.

 

But, but, the players "played a whale of a ballgame!"

 

We have two guys that have ruined my team, without them we would have been a contender for the last 2 years. So with your logic, add another 3 yrs to that and it would have been acceptable once Grigson/Pagano joined a team with quite a bit of talent that we would be a 'contender' in about 5 yrs!!

It's almost like the early lead came back to haunt this team.  We never trailed in regulation this game but gave up 2 unanswered touchdowns that set up an overtime loss.  In the 2 wins, we had to come back from a deficit late in the game.  It's almost as if we have to come back from something to have a chance to win.  Even watching us go up 13-0, I had a bad feeling that something like this would be the outcome.

In all my years of watching Colts Football, this is the most unbelievable punch to the gut choke I have ever seen in my life. Up 23-9 and in complete control and lose to a QB that is Average. Yes Brock O is Average but now everyone will be kissing his butt because of our epic choke. What an embarrassing loss. We just don't have it this season folks, for some reason the magic just isn't there. Houston will probably win the Division and then be 1 and done as they aren't that good but apparently we aren't good either. Cant close with a 14 point lead, that is absolutely inexcusable. We are done now, how in the hell can you be up 23-9 against a QB playing like garbage and lose that lead. Man our team needs some changes, I am convinced of that now. Hey congrats to GORE, at least he got over 100!

    • Remember,  we are not debating whether Spring is doable.   I've stated from the beginning that I agree.    It's not as bad as some here think it is.    It's doable,   No question.   We are debating whether Spring is preferable, or desireable.    So, when you write,  that you don't think you have to say more about an issue,  any issue,  I'm sorry,   but NO!     You DO have to say more.  A heckuva lot more.    Because YOU have the burden of proof.    My position is the Industry Standard.   Your's has, by comparison,  a handful of examples.   Some are recent.   That's great.   But I view that as a nod to the position that it's doable.    You view it as a possibility that it might soon become the norm.   I'm happy to wait until that actually happens.   As to your primary argument.....    that all the prep work has been done,  and if you make the changes in winter,  that the GM is not up to speed on what the current scouts and player personnel people have done.    Except there is this......   Your argument that you yourself use to others here who complain that changing in the spring is bad.   To quote you....   it's just one draft.    One free agency period.    And there will soon be another,  and then another....   and another.   One season is nothing in the grand scheme of things.   That is what you wrote (roughly) to posters who think making the GM change in the spring is outright terrible and stupid.    Which I strongly disagree with their positin.   Your argument makes my argument for me.    I want the new GM in the building ASAP.    So he can sooner evaluate his players.    His front office.    His scouts.    The entire program.   Waiting until May or June just delays that.    I want it to begin ASAP.   I'd expect that he can and would be able to make some level of difference in his first free agency and draft.    Plus,  I think you way, way over-dramatize the handicap the new GM has arriving in January.   He's the GM.    He's already got a ton of information in his head,  and in his notebooks, his binders.    He's not in as much of a bind as you like to portray.     So, with your desired scenario, this draft could be used for a system that the new GM doesn't even want to run.    Like Chuck running a 3-4,  when Ballard wants to run a 4-3.    Like Chuck wanted to run a power running game and a deep pattern passing game.    While Ballard favors a zone running game and a get rid of the ball quick, move the chains offense.     In your preferred scenario,  you're the one who is burning the first year the GM has,  not me.     I see little of the benefits and mostly an approach that screams....   "Gee,  I hope this works out."   By the way,  I didn't want this post to end without addressing one of your main points.   Your paragraph that starts with this:   My Point:  There are always good candidates...   same is true for head coaches and coordinators.    I'm sorry,  but I'm going to STRONGLY disagree with that argument.  And I think you'll retract that.    Every so often you'll see an article about how did the class of GM's from a previous year turn out?   Or head coach hires?    I used to tell posters here who hated Pagano that the class of head coaches that included Chuck,  that all of the other coaches got fired before Chuck.    That Chuck was the best of his class.   And that happens with GM's too.   A class gets hired,  and quite often most of them, sometimes all of them don't work out.   I believe my position has far more facts to back that up.    There isn't always a Sean McVey.  There isn't always a Kyle Shannahan.   There isn't always a Josh McDaniels.   There aren't 32 good GM's, or 32 good head coaches,  or 32 good offensive or defensive coordinators.   That's why so many teams struggle for years to get those spots right.   So, no, I absolutely reject the idea that there are always good candidates.    Sorry.   I know you believe what you're writing.   But honestly, this feels like one big thought experiment. Like you're trying to make a case for something you really don't believe,  but you're trying to see if you can make a good argument anyway.   And yet I know that's NOT the case.    That you really, honestly do believe this.    That's what I find so astonishing.    There's lots of opinion,  and not a lot of evidence to back this up.    As I've said from the get-go....   I think this is doable.    I just don't think it's desireable or preferable.  
    • To your last paragraph....   yes,  I agree that if a GM,  any GM, inherits a bad roster,  then no matter how OK his draft picks may be,   they will likely stick on the roster.   But if you're a GM inheriting a poor team,  and you draft players that are only somewhat better than what you originally had,  then the improvement in the team will only be so good.   Again,  from 4 wis,  to perhaps 6-7.    That wouldn't be bad.    That would be reasonable.   But when you suddenly pop to 10 wins,  including 9 of the last 10 in the regular season,  and you win on the road in the playoffs,   then there's got to be something more there than just the GM's new guys.    Those guys have got to be good.    You can't do that well simply because they're better than the previous guys.    They're much better.    Yes, the coaching staff is better and the systems the team is running are better,  but so are the players.    They have to execute.    And we did.   Better than we thought possible.    Certainly better than when we were 1-5 and looked like a candidate for a top-10 or even a top-5 draft pick.    The players are good.   They may not be great yet,  but they're really good and much better than what we had.    The results are all the proof you need.   Again,  thanks for the exchange....  
    • I missed the first couple innings, was keeping track on phone, didn’t realize things got chippy with the benches clearing after the Contreras HR! Seems the Cubs were playing with a little extra edge tonight, I love it!!! 
    • and then NE goes into KC and throws for 350 and Sony runs for 100+ on them. our O, and O game plan just sucked.   i get KC was good, but our O just sucked.
