Don't care what the "real" fans say.

 

I hope we lose the last three games thus improving the draft position and resulting in the firing of Pagano and Grigson.

for once and the first time ever, I agree.

This era needs to end, period.  How anyone continues to defend Grigson, I have no idea.  Does anyone really believe there is no other management  type out there who could do better than the 30th ranked D and one of the worst O-lines in the game?  End the insanity.

Irsay did apparently. It must have been a hell of a sales job.

I don't care about draft position....you don't get more choices

 

More players to choose from, though. Or possibly more choices because of trade down from a better position.

I agree. They are coached to be physical and play hard. We are a finesse team.

I don't think they are any better than us than we are the Titans, but you have to give them credit , they have turned the tables on the Colts last couple years . We won these games with one of the best QB ever but now we are just a team, hard to deal with that.

This is the worst division of the past decade.  We're under no illusion here.  The team Grigson built is absolute garbage.

Not a chance. A team with osweiler at qb and 4 starters missing on defence should be beatable. We dominated them in their house earlier this season and the loss was on us not being able to close out. This was a very winnable game blown by poor decision making and execution.

we now have to win our final 3 games...all of them

 

its doable - minny not as good as start of year,. Jasxsonville lasty game & J thomas now on IUR less weapons for bad QB 

 

Vs Raiders can be tough , alot depends on if Carrs hand / finger is healed so he can throw better

Obviously they were beatable but they have a better running game, defense, and coaches than we have. Don't know why everyone was acting so cocky all week.

I think they key point you make is the coaching difference. The personnel we have is enough to win against this team, especially if Andy plays well. He did not today, dropped balls didn't help and coaches made poor choices. Two games against texans this year I believe we would have won with better coaching. 

 

Hopefully we will see how a new coach approaches these games next year.......but I doubt it.

Yeah this is the worst division and we are the least talented team in the division. We just have Luck. This was a bad game for the offensive coaches no doubt but if anyone deserves to go it is Grigson.

 

But if you were to listen to this forum all week you would have bet your house that the Colts would win.

You see it that way. I see it as the coaches have been overachieving this year with the awful personnel they have. We don't have a Clowney, Mercilus, Watt, or even a Brian Cushing but we are still expected to go out and beat better teams because we have Luck.

 

That leaves very little room for error. Chud was bad today with his play calls but I don't think that should take away from the good he has done this year.

Then drunk. 

It's completely obvious that the Texans even with their injuries have a better running game, defense, and coaching staff than we have. So it makes no sense for everyone all week on this forum that criticizes this coaching staff after every loss to be so cocky going into the game. 

 

Should not be a surprise that we lost if we are the lesser team. That leaves no room for error and we had plenty of mistakes.

Guarantee that there will not be any coaching or GM changes next year.

 

I'm hoping for a high draft pick, but with Grigson, I'm not sure what the benefit may be....another flashy offensive player?

A small fast WR with bad hands in the 1st round....oh wait, he did that one already.

Losing doesn't make you the lesser team

No talent makes you the lesser team. The Texans were already without Watt and J. Joseph and still have game changing players like Clowney, Mercilus, Wilfork, Cushing, and others. 

 

We have to go out there with a bunch of rookies and other young players on defense like Edwin Jackson, Antonio Morrison, and Rashaan Melvin and expect to win.

 

So you guys can blame the coaching all you want and it was a definite factor for parts of this game on the offensive end. But the talent on the roster is the real problem in my opinion.

And who do you think is responsible for roster's talent?

Yeah I'm on the fire Grigson bandwagon 100% and have been for a while. I just think the coaches are getting a bad rap for the talent they have to work with, and people on here are illogical with the overreacting like we were suppose to blow out this team or something.

Yeah, you can only waste/trade so many top picks and then it catches up with you...even Reggie Wayne commented on that.

And that is precisely where the Colts were last year....Pagano saying we don't have the right players and Grigson saying you have to coach them up! Time to clean house or just become the Washington generals of the NFL for the next 20 years!

Grigson is the problem. The players are being coached up. For this team to not have a losing season yet with the  awful roster he has put together is pretty remarkable. Going 8-8 last year without Luck (especially when most of the losses came with Luck at quarterback) should be something the coaches are commended for.

 

it's not like we are the Cleveland Browns or anything. If changes happen to the coaching staff than whatever but Grigson better go before Pagano does.

We should have beaten Texans....

 

...in our first meeting. Blowing 14 points lead turned out even worse now. 

 

I honestly think that Texans aren't better than Colts. Both team needed to win, they came out to play and performed...w didn't it is so simple IMO. There were many problems...3 turnovers for instance are inexcusable during an important game. The whole team looked a litle faithless.

 

Besides, in Luck era when AV missed a FG we mostly lost. (Just my observation, not official).

We could have beat the Texans but I disagree that we are better than them. They are better at all facets except quarterback and maybe wide receiver. So Luck knows he had to play perfectly to win this game. Both teams came to play but the Texans have a better defense and made Luck and the offense look bad like they did in the last seven minutes and overtime in the first matchup.

We lost the game with our turnovers and a bunch of bad plays...not because of a couple bad calls. If the game rested on a couple bad calls we would never win because our OC and HC make ton of bad calls every game lol.

Doesn't help when the ref makes bad calls either but we just didn't show up to play football today.

The Jets win was an illusion ..Jets are down 14-0 at SF in the first 4 minutes

 

Yeah, that's why I was trying to temper expectations last week.  It's not because I wanted to rain on the parade, but some people were taking waaaaaaay too much out of that game.  That game said much more about the Jets than it did the Colts.  The Jets simply did not come to play.  They quit.  They were playing more to avoid contact than they were to make plays.  It was a good win for the Colts, but the Jets are a train wreck right now and putting a beat down on them really doesn't say all that much.  Unfortunately, this Colts team is simply not very good.

    • The covid IR rules are helping this team a ton. Imagine if they were the old IR rules. We would of had to cut some players because guys like Burton would not of went on IR. I hope they keep some of these rules because teams can keep more of their players instead of having to cut them.
    • Yep. He was loved by every analyst too as a single high FS, and looked good his first year with the Colts. He'll be a bargain for someone IMO if he can stay healthy.    What's also weird though, is that Flus hinted that he wanted to play more man last year. Aside from the KC game, didn't seem like it happened much. And we drafted both Rock and Blackmon from heavy man systems. I think Willis was too. I just don't understand to be honest what Flus is really all about yes. Was he waiting to get a 3T and pressure up front to go more man? He has that now. And if not, not sure I understand Ballard's draft choices as they seem to be converse to Flus's scheme.
    • With his injury history, I doubt there are going to be many teams out there offering to dish out money like he'd be a guaranteed starter, and I would doubt many teams are going to be throwing long-term deals at him.  He has to prove he can stay healthy for a 16 game season, something he hasn't done in 4 years (7 games, 14 games, 13 games, <2 games).     So, it wouldn't be too surprising (IMO) if Ballard offered him a 1 year deal with a low guarantee and some incentives built in... but he probably knows he's a better fit in a different scheme and can get a similar deal elsewhere where he's more suited to play.     It will be interesting... if JT/Wilkins/Hines prove they're a formidable trio, where would Mack fit in the puzzle if he came back to Indy next year... I'd think he'd be able to go elsewhere, get offered more $ and have a better chance to get more carries.  I could be wrong, but my sense is that JT is going to establish himself a true #1 RB in this league before this year ends.  I understand his wear may be an issue considering how many miles he put on in college, but so far (in limited time) Wilkins has shown he can be a solid supplement to him.  Mack has already shown the league he can be an upper-level back in the NFL, so I don't think he'll have too much trouble finding $ if he is passing all his physicals and looking good in his workouts.     TJ Green or Laron Landry... I don't think Hooker is even close to either of those guys.  Hooker produced in college, he was producing very well (being talked about DROY) as a rookie before he got hurt.  He hasn't been a bad football player here.  He doesn't get thrown at much.  He's playing a scheme that isn't entirely suited to his skill set... but he has shown he can play.  TJ Green was a raw guy who didn't produce near the level as Hooker did in college and never showed anything in the NFL (another Grigs bust) and Landry was a roided out freak who was shown the door by the league because he couldn't pass PED tests.   Hooker, if he can stay healthy, can play in this league.  That is his major concern, is his health... he is an above average football player who could be very good if he's in the right system.     Yes, that was a weird scenario all around.  Ballard, keep in mind, didn't get to choose his coach.  He was basically stuck with Pagano.  Ballard knew what scheme he wanted to run on D, which was different than Pagano.  Pagano was talking about Hooker as 'the next Ed Reed' (who played under Pagano when he was a DC in Baltimore).  Hooker really fit the Pagano mold.  I would not be shocked, if Pagano is still in a defensive coordinator position going into next year that Hooker went to whatever team Pagano was affiliated with, TBH.  
    • Agreed.  He came to the Colts to play with Luck, make a lot of stats, win a lot of games, and make a lot of money.  When Luck quit, and he had to play with Brissett, none of those things were going to happen anymore, and he knew it.  The light just went out of his eyes, and he didn't really care to be here anymore.
    • I can absolutely see the loss costing us positioning in the playoffs. Hopefully it was just rust (execution and game plan) and we'll start to roll. There really is no making up for a loss to a team ranked 32nd (at the time). It is what it is, and you just got to move on. Perhaps beating TN on the road might make up for, but honestly TN doesn't look all that great right now, and I already thought we'd fair well against them.   As far as the whole O vs D thing, simply put, they are symbiotic. A good D helps the offense by giving them opportunity and field position. A good O helps the D by keeping them off the field.
