Oh I didnt realize he is supposed to block Clowney 1 on 1 im sure most tight ends would have fared about the same in that situation..That is a COACHING problem and a problem with Andrew Luck not having the awareness to recognize it...

I agree with the section of texts that I bolded from your post JS23, but not necessarily the whole statement in it's entirety. I won't criticize Luck in that situation because he's counting on his protection to hold up regardless. 

 

You know my views on Pagano & Grigson already. Enough said. I'm say 85% in agreement with your stance here.

A player that demands double Teams from o lineman should never be one on one with a TE. That's a dumb coaching move. No TE in the league could have been faulted for not making that play. 

You're not wrong SAD. But part of me understands why this coaching staff tried it. Dwayne Allen is a big body with long arms who might be able to slow JD down & give Andrew a few extra seconds. It didn't work that's true, but you don't know how a TE is gonna fare until you kick the tires on Allen as a throw a wrench in the works tool on 1 crucial play. 

 

Plus, you gotta remember Clowney hasn't really shown up & become a force of nature until this yr either. Nobody really knows what Clowney is yet as a pass rusher. His sample size of game wreck eye in the sky tape is too small & the dude is still recovering from surgery too.

No I get why they tried it, you just cant really fault Allen when it goes wrong. The coaches didnt put him in a situation to succeed. They just kinda threw him in and hoped for the best.

I cant speak for Jshipp for sure, but I think the logic there is that Luck knows (or should know) the blocking matchups and be able to notice the mismatch and either change the play or the protection accordingly. That being said we dont know if that was a specific blocking matchup they were looking for when they drew up the play. It may or may not fall on Luck and we will never really know.

While I'll admit I thought that they'd lead the league, the Colts rank 7th in drops.  

 

Obviously this needs addressed (among many other things) but maybe the receivers needs to sleep with footballs in their arms like TY did his rookie year or something. 

 

 

So...what your saying is that Grigson needs to take a WR in Rd. 1.......am I right????

There are easy catches, and difficult catches.  Both are a factor in catch percentage.  I think Luck does not provide as many easy catches for his receivers as he should.

 

   Look at the drop % for the players catching from Brady, Rodgers, Ryan, Brees, Prescott.
 

 This is obvious from day 1. Lucky is throwing the ball somewhat lower than in the past, but he still is very average with touch, in leading his receivers and throwing on time into tight windows.
 Lucky loves the long ball and loves to make his decision to throw After his receiver makes his break.
  He does make a lot of great throws for sure. Hope he continues to improve.

This response was priceless. It's direct, it's funny, & it answers the question of what a drop literally is. I love your humor Lolly. Probably because I'm the exact same way myself. Keep it up. Once a ______; Always a ______ right? I leave it up to you to drop in your favorite adjective my man. :D

 

It's cool OUM. I meant no disrespect either BTW. It was a legit question since even the refs calling games struggle with consistency over what they classify as a catch week to week on average.

Yeah, sometimes it does come across like this coaching staff is giving the misguided impression that they are overwhelmed & confused what to do at times. What's that old saying? "Nobody plans to fail, but they can fail to plan" right? 

 

You might be right. Luck has to know he can't delay. He has to release that ball like his hand is literally on fire. I cut Chewbacca a lot of flack since Grigson has done a inferior job of protecting Luck until most recently. Like others have already said, I'm more upset at Ryan than I am at Chuck personally.

Im honestly not sure who is the bigger problem between chuck and Grigson.  I feel like they are just a bad fit together.  Grigson seems to covet players that need to be coached up and Pagano doesn't seem to be able to make anything out of them.  

Grigsons refusal to change his approach has definitely hurt this team but I think if we had a different coach things may be different.

 

 If I have the time next week I'm planning on doing a bunch of research on grigsons work in Philly and who he worked with (both scouting and coaching). I'm wondering if maybe it's the approach the organization took when they had a coach like Reid around. Reid is a good coach and always seems to be able to succeed with very few playmakers on offense and a slew of injuries on KC.

I look forward to reading your thoughts on Ryan's track record & management style in Philly SAD, especially since not all that much is known about how Grigs perceives what his top priorities are as a former scout & until Jimmy hired him in INDY; Ryan never got a chance to assemble a roster from top to bottom.

 

I still want both Chuck & Ryan gone, but if you force me to keep one, it would be Pagano for 1 more yr.

    • Yeah, especially now that frank has given him the detailed blueprint and step by step instructions how to carry it out.    And guess what?  There’s a very high likelihood that another Colts season ends at the hands of the hoodie because frank wants to go down painting by numbers and letting a defense bully him around rather than taking a chance on and going down swinging with our best player.     But anyways…   Anyone ever notice ol’ hoodie doesn’t pull % like this and is the best coach of our generation, if not of all time?   Just asking. No specific reason. I’m sure there’s no correlation there or anything.   
    • 1. I don't/didn't know it was a requirement, nor that it happens 'every play', as Romo suggested...for better or worse, I believed Romo, on Thanksgiving Day. 2. I also didn't know that the guard(s) looked back, or slapped the center, prior to the 'mandatory', head bobs on every play. It could help if the officials told all the coaches to stop all of those motions, or be flagged for them, before the start of this week's games. I watch very few NFL games, and was watching Week 12 only because Gamepass offered the whole week, ending with Seahawks at Football Team, for 99 cents! I listen to some games on internet radio...including Bears at Lions...before I read the emailed offer from Gamepass.  
    • I want to be clear about this…. Im not saying Frank will never be fired before the end of his contract.   Not at all.  History shows most coaches are fired before their contract is up.   I’d expect it will happen to Frank….   Someday.       All I’m saying is I’m confident that someday won’t be this off-season.   5 years gives you SOME job security.    But I have a saying about coaches in all sports….    You're the right guy right up until the minute you’re not.   I think that minute is a long ways off.   Certainly not five years away, but I don’t see him getting canned this winter.    As crazy as Frank’s play calling can be,  this is a flawed roster and while some of that can be chalked up to early injuries, the rest can be chalked up to decisions Ballard made.   So I don’t see Ballard making Frank his fall guy this off-season.   I think for the near future, these two are joined at the hip.  How long that lasts is anyone’s guess.   But certainly not this off-season.    Hope this clarifies….
