If the players are inept, no call will work

You work with what you have lol if that's the case we would need perfect players in every position and so would the entire league..quite frankly we need adjustments on talent and playcalling but to say it's simply execution isn't true chud has called some pretty bad games with very few perfect ones to counter it

Jack Doyle being slow has caught my eye more than anything else about him so far, I wonder how effective he will be as a #1 TE, Luck extending plays has more to do with his production than him getting separation, I'm starting to think. 

 

Doyle lovers, take it easy :)

Very true. I thought I noticed that, but thought maybe I'm wrong. Hopefully he's just half heartedly running.

What a concept by Dallas. They're rewriting NFL playbooks tonight. Tough to defend such groundbreaking innovation. 

 

Run short routes, find the holes in the zone, and get the ball out quickly. 

 

Mix in some runs up the gut for balance.

Bad QB play hurts too

I can't lie, I'm not liking Tolzien much, but I'm also a little freaked out at some of Chuds lackluster play calls as well.

 

This game hadn't given me much positive reinforcement for the season honestly. Speaking honestly, no doom/gloom stuff.

This team is visibly UNPREPARED for games....PERIOD. This coaching staff is being given notice as far as I'm concerned. Ballard is not going to accept this lack of discipline, poor offensive and defensive game planning and incompetence. So what if Dallas has a great offensive line? Hankins wants to think this unit can be dominant? Better step to the plate and perform better than that!!!!! Disappointed in the first team defense...First team offense is lethargic to start games...Chuck confused as usual and now starting to show confusion and frustration.

    • I read those guys (really just the site in general), but don't recall them saying we made an offer. I do recall an article on their site though saying Landry should be our #1 FA WR target. 
    • Please read OP before voting   Roster INs and OUTs Already under contract Nelson LG Down year due to foot and back issues/surgery. Started 13/17 games Only graded 69.1 via PFF, but also surrendered only one sack Kelly OC A bit beat up early. Started 14/17 games Further regressed to 56.9 PFF, and gave up 3 sacks Smith RT Also missed time due to injury, 11/17, missing 6 of the first 7 games. After he got back, he was petty elite, grading 80.6, but did give up 4 sacks Pinter iOL Started 3 games at OC when Kelly was out and graded 74.7, while not allowing a sack (pretty impressive) Fries iOL No starts, but got a few snaps in 2 games. Graded 54.8 Added or extended or re-signed Rainmann T or ? Our 3rd round pick. Several, or even most had him going in the bottom half of the 1st round.  PFF ranked him the 18th best overall prospect, and graded him 94.6 for the season.  Age is a bit of concern, as is the small conference background (MAC has put out plenty of good NFL OL though) Elite RAS, and only 2 years at OT (which he was All-MAC) Pryor Swing T Started 5 games (IIRC, 2 at LT, 2 at RT, 1 at G), but got snaps in 14 games Graded nicely at 76.5, giving up zero sacks Not sure why we didn't see him more at LT instead of waiting till end of season. Signed a one year 5.5M contract. I think I would have gone 2 years given the cost and his swing value at minimum. Dennis Kelly Swing T Started the last 4 games for GB last season, grading at 70.4 with only 1 sack allowed 32 years old, but still solid. At worst he's a high quality depth swing T Contract details not available, but played for GB on a one year 1Mish contract last year Reserve/Future Murray and O'Donnell Murray - CFL guy with good upside but still a long shot O'Donnell - upside, and second year with Indy (PS) UDFAs French and Van Demark, and former UDFA Kemp ? All long shots that will need time if they do end up sticking Lost Fisher LT Returned from 2020 injury and just never played up to expectations. Good in the run game for the most part, but horrible in pass pro. Graded 68.2 and gave up a team high 7 sacks. Caliz (Stampede Blue) credits Fisher with 2 losses (Balt and TB) due to whiffs that directly translated to game losing strip sacks of Wentz.  Still has not found a job Glowinski RG 70.1 PFF and only 2 sacks allowed. One of his best seasons ever if not the best. Signed a 3 year / 20M (6.6M year) contract with the Giants. Modest, but well deserved. Hope we don't miss him too much Reed iOL depth Got a little action, and graded 67.2 Signed an uber cheap deal with MN for 2 years totaling 4.5M (2.25M a year) I like Glow better, but can't believe we let Reed get away for that cheap.  Davenport T depth Was pretty awful grading 45.3 and allowing 4 sacks in less than 300 snaps IIRC, signed a 1 year league min (about 1M) with the Bears Assumed depth based on aggregate of sites Starters LT - Pryor LG - Nelson OC - Kelly RG - Pinter RT - Smith Depth Swing Tackle - Dennis Kelly TBD but likely OT - Rainmann Swing iOL - Fries (now taking OC snaps) Key questions / comments LT - Can Pryor lock it down, or does Kelly or Rainmann challenge? RG - Can Pinter lock it down, or does Indy look for a FA or perhaps switch things up OC - Will Kelly right the ship, or regress further iOL depth - however you look at it, we are super weak here Nelson - will the back issues linger, or does he get back to pre-2021 form. and when will he get an extension? T depth - while the LT starter may can concern in some, the overall depth with Kelly and Rainmann added, is pretty darn good.    Article from Stampede Blue (short, simple, but decent) https://www.stampedeblue.com/2022/5/17/23068652/how-much-have-the-colts-improved-offensive-line
    • I follow the guys at The Blue Stable. Two of them are dead on with their sources. Destin Adams and Shaad McGinnis have both broke trades, FA signings, and coaching hires before the national and local media. Shaad’s brother is the dline coach for the Rams.  There are also a couple of sources out there that are credible. Shaad has also broke non-Colts stories.
