I just wish he would get rid of the ball faster. I could be wrong but does he hold the ball longer than most qbs? Seems like Peyton and Tom know where they want to go with the ball most plays before they even snap it. We just don't have the line to hold the ball and survey a field.

 

 

His receivers couldn't get separation all day.

I wish Luck was more like Brady with the offensive line. Every time Brady gets hit he screams at them and they respond well. We won't be anything until pass rush and offensive line is fixed.

Yes but Brady's OL is put in a position to succeed due to their play calling. Luck's isn't.

He does sometimes hold the ball too long but that was not the problem today. He was getting hit before he had the ball for 3 seconds.

Especially when they are only rushing 3, just can't give him no time with 3 rushing and 8 covering.

Peyton ran such a simple offense yet it was almost impossible to defend once they changed the rules of defensive PI and illegal contact. Sometimes I just wonder if we are trying to do too much with these players. Luck included. He is a physical specimen and very very good but he isn't some football savant. We just don't have the players to execute what we are trying to do.

"Might boil over" isn't  good enough we need it to happen now I hate how he tolerates that lack of effort by his oline and recievers 

It doesn't do anyone any good for him to tell the media how the roster is complete garbage, the coaching staff is in beyond their heads, the GM wouldn't know offensive line talent if it stood right in front of him, and the owner is happy with the people he has around him.  Everyone knows the problems, but it does no good to air it to the media

With the pathetic pass rush we have sometimes I wonder if we shouldn't do that too. Not like we are getting to the qb anyways.

Yeah all 3 for me, I'm not a die hard Cubs fan at all but I'm pulling for them.  I don't really dislike the Indians though.  Tough weekend indeed!

No doubt. Pulling for them tonight...we will see

Or our play book/play calling just isn't good enough.

 

I think a lot of it does have to do with play calling.  It's still a very PEP-like offense, they don't seem to change or adjust to the team they're playing.

As much as I hate the whole turmoil in the team thing. Maybe Irsay would actually take some notice. The fans have screamed and he signs the guys to new contracts. The media rakes Grigson over the coals and he says we easily could be 6-0, etc. Maybe if his franchise QB, the leader of our team, would say something, he might take notice..... then again he would probably just keep talking about how this is a long-term strategy, etc.

I honestly think the OL will get better. It is so young...rookies that haven't had even a whole year of NFL experience. Last year they were playing against 18-20 year olds. Now they are playing elite grown men. Let them mature and get stronger...a lot stronger. Maybe just maybe we get a left tackle in FA and move Costonzo to RT or Clark developes next offseason. Haeg moves inside maybe? They are a long way from being good but man they have stepped in and played right away and that isn't fair of mid rd guys.

Well it was a great weekend for sports if your either a -

1. Cubs fan

2. Colts fan

3. Pacers fan

 

Or all of the above, lol.

Pacers will get it together despite the tough start. I mean they don't have the roster depth to make a title run but they will get it together to the point that they are a top team in the East. Cubs are done. Colts are done.

I'm a Bulls and Sox Fan. Glad to see the Cubbies go down in flames @ Wrigleyville. So 2 of the 3 outcomes were fine to me

Irsay probably thinks we are like 7 and 0. With his comments how we could be undefeated it makes me wonder if he even watches the game up in his booth or just let's grigson and pagano tell him a complete fabrication.

 

Hes in his own world to put it mildly

I honestly didn't even watch the game because I have been on the road traveling, now in my hotel. I guess I didn't miss much. Lost 30-14. Once we lost that Houston game it kind of screwed us anyway. I see Brock and his boys beat the Lions as well. To the people that want us to lose and get a high Draft pick you may get your wish.

    • fascinating, since there's a 49ers beat writer who's saying today "according to a source within the organization who's very close to the situation" that Stafford-to-SF is basically a all but a done deal   guess we'll know one way or the other pretty soon
    • How about no.  Leonard should not be traded.
    • I think the feeling is in Baltimore currently is that they love the Ravens, but would love to have the history of the Baltimore Colts back.    I think most of the animosity towards Indianapolis is largely gone, and the Indy Colts are respected as a good franchise in Baltimore. I think through the prism of time, people have excepted the move, but for some older fans, it’s still hard to see that logo and our former history attached to another city. This is no offense to Indy fans as they were just happy to get an NFL team.    As far as Cleveland goes, most in Baltimore felt bad for those fans , and that city, because we actually wanted an expansion team that went to Charlotte and Jacksonville. Out of options, we were also forced to plunder another city. I’m just glad we left the logos and history in Cleveland. To me, any team that leaves should start fresh , in my opinion.    The crazy thing about appropriating another city’s history is that it can create some contradictions. As I was a fan of the Baltimore Colts in 1964, and we lost the NFL Championship game to Cleveland 27-0, should I then claim that its my Championship if the Browns records had gone to the Ravens, and we were suddenly NFL Champions in 1964, instead of the losers  ? Should I be joyous that Jim Brown and Otto Graham were Baltimore franchise greats, when they never played a down for Baltimore.  If Jim Irsay had taken the Colts to LA, would you enjoy the LA Colts hanging your Indianapolis 2006 Super Bowl banner in LA, or putting Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison in the Hall of Fame under Los Angeles, with the city of Indianapolis erased from where the history occurred ?    So I think we all understand the business reasons why owners leave cities. The hard part is when a team , it’s logos, it’s history, it’s Championships, it’s Hall of Famers, now reside under another city whose fans may have been Bear’s fans at the time, as an example. I know I hate the St Louis Browns baseball records being thrown in with the Baltimore Orioles baseball team. I just wish they would expunge those records, they belong to St Louis. I know not everyone feels this way, but it is a strange situation. Not much you can do about it, but just my observations.       
    • Yup. Darnold isn't going to get that much draft capital. If it happens, it's a reach. I can see a mid to late first, but not multiple picks. Given what's available in the draft, and some of the other potential guys coming available, and early second, or maybe a 2nd and 3rd seem more realistic.   NO to me would be a good match. He could battle it out with Hill.
