This is one of those games where a 1-3 team plays an 0-4 team and as you're watching the game you think to yourself, "I can these two teams only have one win between them."

What is unreal is if the Colts find a way to win and the other teams in the Division lose it will be a 4way tie for 1st. Colts cant do anything without Luck though, we all know that. He needs to get healthy obviously.

Aiken is garbage..moncrief is he even on the field?

Moncrief has worked his way to the #3 spot, behind Aiken. I don't think Aiken has earned the #2 spot, just that Moncrief has earned the #3 spot.

For those who can't watch the game: I'll recap the special teams play that we are talking about.

 

The ball was punted to Bray. He took a step forward to try to draw the coverage and then he threw a lateral pass across the field to Hogan, however, the pass was nearly intercepted. Hogan caught it but was immediately tackled. He fumbled the ball while being tackled and then recovered it. 

 

It was a catastrophe.

and a loss of thirteen yards from where Bray was standing...

Thank you. I think. I come in here because I can't watch the game in hopes of getting details on the plays as they happen. Thanks again. I'm kinda glad I couldn't see that one happen in real time.

With that field position, can we not shoot ourselves and at least add another 3?

 

The Colts are great at constantly shooting themselves in the foot. If that won games, the Colts would be super bowl contenders

It's been kind of a weird season so far.  I was listening to 660 AM out of NYC early this morning because it's raining and I didn't feel like getting out of bed.  They said that 24 out of the 32 teams in the NFL are 2-2 or better.  Nobody is really running away with the divisions, so an 0-4 start isn't the death blow that it has been in past seasons.  Also, if you look at the Colts' schedule, this is their fifth game of the season and not only have they not played a division opponent yet, they've only played one AFC team.  I don't think I've ever seen a schedule like that before.  So 2-3 or 1-4 is a position that you don't want to be in, but there are a lot of games against AFC and divisional teams left to play that can help you get out of it.  The problem is that the Colts have not showed me anything to this point to make be believe that they can turn things around and start winning some games.

Slow starts do not necessarily mean a fast second half. It could be a slow start followed by a slow second half.

This team honestly just doesn't know how to utilize talent..please mass fire some of the staff after this year I mean we lack talent but we aren't this damn bad we've shown we can compete sparingly then we have some bone headed playcalls and penalties..also should include some execution problems but I feel like this offense just wants to do TOO much

    • So the head to head matchup doesn’t mean anything? That’s kind of strange.
    • Gonna disagree on the underlying premise here. Reich has been building the offense around a scheme, more than a person. Sure play calling is subject to personnel, but Reich doesn't want to build something predicated on a person. He wants guys, QB included, that fit his offensive scheme.  The things that are causing him to hold onto the ball a long time, are the real issues, and are not exactly easy to solve. They are the same things he's been struggling with consistently since college. Again, IMO, Reich wants to build more around a scheme, not a player. Do you really think he wants to change his coaching scheme/identity?    Also, on elite slot guy, Brissett has struggled to hit open slots all year in the seam +5 yards, and especially +10. The seam is prime time locale for slots and TEs, and JB simply missed them most of year. Plenty of struggles in this area before injuries took their toll, and plenty of all-22 shots showing open guys in the seam even after the injuries. You can look at Nextgen's passing charts on JB and see the same thing.   Hypothetically speaking, what specifically is needed to promote JB's strengths. We already have a top 5ish OL and running game. We had two pretty good TEs most of the year. Sure we had injury issues with WRs, but we still had plenty of open guys even with replacement guys.    Reich's O is already a lot of short passes, and occasional deep shots. The deep shots aren't necessarily to an area though (some are), that's more a Chud type O. So you're basically saying mask his inability to be accurate, and Reich should change his core scheme principal instead of finding a player to fit his offensive philosophy?  Don't agree here. JB simply didn't go deep a lot early. They tried to go deep more later, but simply was not successful. Take a look at the Nextgen weekly charts.    You also need to take into account that teams started playing us different after they got tape on JB. They started zoning more, which JB also struggled with, even with WRs getting open. They also started focusing on the run and daring him to pass, playing farther off the line. Even some of the worst passing Ds gave him significant trouble. There are very real reasons why he was turned into a game manager several games.  To wrap this up, he's no AR, but he's also deficient in a lot of areas and not a lot of other guys either. His average rank for instance in the 4 core QB measurements (YPG, QBR, Comp%, AVG) are 27th IIRC. While even a game manager QB like Jimmy G's average was 9th. I'm just not sure a coach, or an organization should scrap or change drastically, the scheme of the coach they hired to install that scheme. Not sure that they should be pressed into augmenting personnel on either side of the ball to mask deficiencies for a guy that might not fit the teams O scheme in the first place. Would you ask Andy Reid to change his scheme to fit JB?
    • I just can't see it. We don't have the pieces to have a QB just manage a game. 
    • Yes, Oakland had Record: 7-9 with an SOS of .482 Indy had record: 7-9 with an SOS of .492   So they get the nod.
