Such a BAD 3rd down call by the Colts offence, not doing a play to force the Cardinals to use their last timeout.   Just horrible play calling there, potentially costing the game.  

I just totally think this was the key blunder. To me it shows a complete lack of game awareness.  Either a draw running play or high percentage screen pass is a must.  If you don't get the first down, more time is off the clock and you force the Cardinals to use their last time out.   I think this really tarnishes a good effort by again, the coaching not doing the best to put the team in a position to succeed.

Its not his fault...Brissett was average.......but offensively we are what we are

Strong defensive game

 

Almost every backup QB is average.  Or they would start and get 1st team reps.  Your team has to win with average QB play.  No O line mistakes, minimal drops, and a tight D.  Though we flashed in all areas, we failed some in every area too.  Thus eventually too much to overcome.

It's getting to the point where I'm blaming the playcalling a lot more on both sides of the ball we do not adjust ever and we go away from what works instantly 

Chud is a dud. I've seen enough now to have no faith in his strategies. Andrew wins by changing his plays basically...

I know what you're saying but Brissett was very averageand he threw the game losing pick

 

He's a backup QB.  Average is about the best you can hope for out of a backup QB.  If they played better than average, they wouldn't be backups.  This is what you're going to get when your starter is out........in terms of QB play, that is.  That is no excuse for the rest of the offense.

The hardest playing 0-16 team in the league.....If that came true would the hardest playing part make anybody in this thread happy in any way ?

 

I don't want to see my team go 0-16, but if that happens then I would much rather see my team go 0-16 while playing hard as opposed to just mailing it in.

When Luck comes back is irrelevant .  We just got to get our heads around the fact this a rebuild and the record is going to be bad this season. Good news is all those Colts fans that always wanted to get decent seats on the cheap are going to have that opportunity this year.  Going to a game is a lot of fun regardless . The Colts know this team is a couple seasons from true contention and aren't rushing Luck back anytime soon. We have been spoiled , it's time to take our lumps. All those years beating the hell out of divisional rivals is over for awhile. Irsay let the Grigson debacle go on one or two years too long and it set them back a couple years at least.

Ok I sick of hearing about the personal foul call. The fact is weather it was intentional or not he hit the qb in the head and it's going to get called. It was the collapse later that ended up dooming the colts not the penality.

 

I could care less if you are sick of hearing about it, it was a horrible call and added 15 yards to the play and then the Cards scored on the next play. and no that doesn't get called if the REF see's it wasn't intentional and he barely freakin grazed him. One of the worse calls I have ever seen actually in watching Football in 40 years.

    • I'm not saying you don't need speed and/or power. I'm just pointing out college players rely on it too often because it works in college, but then find out without technique their not as efficient.
    • OK......      I'm not speaking to Basham at all.    Have seen zero film on him.   I was only trying to say that DL's using speed and/or power in the NFL have worked since the league began.    PLayers who don't with at least one of them typically don't last long in the NFL.    The ones who can win with both have long, successful careers.   More to the point, our whole defense is built on speed.   Especially on the defensive front.   Look at our DE's.   Houston uses both speed and power.    Autry uses both as he plays DE and DT.   Turay is a speed guy.   Banogu is a speed guy.   Lewis, is a bit like Autry in that he plays both DE and DT.    He's trying to use both to win.    We're trying to find DL who win with their first step.  Get even on step 2,  and pass the OL on step 3.       Do the D-Lineman need to develop better hand moves -- absolutely.   100 percent.   That's why Ballard says young DL often need 2-3 years to figure things out.    He just noted Jerry Hughes who didn't blossom until Year 4 with Buffalo.   We gave up on him too soon.    Sorry,  don't mean to belabor the point,  I wanted to read your response before I posted what I needed to say....   Thanks...  
    • You give him the same weapons as Watson had, he will. 
    • This is why drafting a QB/Eason panning out would be ideal for when this happens again. I have stated I'm all for Stafford, but it further restricts you.    We will have about $85 million  committed to Buckner($21 mill), Leonard($19 mill), Nelson($19 mill), Kelley($11 mill), & B. Smith($15 mill) alone after next season.    The issue with having so much talent is eventually you have to get rid of some. I wouldn't be surprised if we trade a star in a few years because we can't afford to pay them(like the 49ers) for a high draft pick.   
    • I meant it's not gonna work as easily in college. Hand fighting and levrage matter more which Basham has. That was my point.
