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

    • Ok, so here we go. The Colts defense has drastically improved over the past 3 seasons under Ballard. There is no denying that. It went from worst in the league to a top 10 defense, and has its young cornerstone leader in Darius Leonard.   You cannot expect the offense to be the same.    With Luck’s retirement, the offensive rebuild is all the way back to square one. Sure, some players will translate over to the new QB, but unless we find Luck 2.0, this scheme won’t be fit for our next signal caller. Thus, I am judging the defense next year for sure, but on offense I will give them another season of work. Losing a top 3 QB won’t go over lightly, so we must be patient and give it a couple years. We’ve been spoiled with Luck right after Manning, it’s time to wake up and realize that the offense needs a reboot and it won’t be all fixed next season. Put your faith in the franchise and Ballard and Reich will get things done!
    • Watching NFL Network right now and it seems like Gordon’s really struggling with even basic stuff.
    • NO.  You're the one not getting it.  Why are you claiming that I'm asserting Glenn was PO'ed, even after I wrote a post saying he may not have been?   And, to your pouncing post that started this......I said,   Actually, I think he moved up to take Ugoh, BEFORE Glenn announced his retirement.  Don't know if Polian was told privately or not.  The way it went down, I thought that Glenn saw Bill pick his replacement, so Glenn got po, ed and decided to just retire one year early. ( I think his contract had one year left)   then you said:   I know for a fact that is not what happened at all.    What didn't happen at all?  What does THAT mean?  What does AT ALL mean?       The po'ed part, which I later retracted, or the part where I said about UGOH BEING DRAFTED BEFORE GLENN ANNOUNCED HIS RETIREMENT.   My point to chad was pretty gentle.  And it had to do with the timeline  and correctly remembering that it wasn't all peaches and cream between Polian and Glenn at the time.  Totally different than Luck and AC.   I got the conflict PRETTY accurate, and the timeline was deadly accurate.  and you're still arguing and defending your misguided  THAT.....AT ALL statement.         
    • They will at the very least franchise tag him so they wouldn't lose him as an asset. If he wants out you will have to trade for him most probably... 
    • We're not that far off.       Undoubtedly.  This reason alone makes it near impossible to compare IND to SF.       The Texans and Titans both had wins in the playoffs.  The Titans made it to the AFC Championship game.  With Luck, we owned the Titans.  With Jacoby, we split 1-1 regular season with the Titans.  If the Titans made that kinda run, I have to believe we would've had a nice shot at the AFC Championship game (or SB) with a healthy Luck (and fully healthy roster).   Still not saying Jacoby is our long-term solution... but TEN got there with a good running game and solid D.  If we improve our DL and add another piece to our secondary (or maybe Rock, Tell and others improve with a better DL), we do have a top 5 running team.  Something will eventually need to be done to upgrade Jacoby (or he'll have to improve), but there's no reason (IMO) that we can't win the AFC South and advance in the playoffs with a few improvements outside of QB next year.  Tannehill isn't exactly a name many NFL fans associate with 'franchise QB', the Titans got to the AFC Championship by running the ball, taking care of the ball and playing solid D.     For real, if Vinny didn't cost us 2-3 games (maybe more like 4-5 games) and McClaughin 1 game (missed a game tying FG), we would've had a nice shot at winning AFC South this past year.  Not like Tannehill is an all-pro QB, the Titans moved on by running the ball and being solid on D.  I think we need to add a few pieces on D, but we can certainly run the ball and I think on any given Sunday we can play with most teams in the league.  If the Titans made that run, no reason we couldn't have.     We had a top 5 NFL QB in Luck, so there was no need to address that issue in draft or FA prior to this past season (and Luck only gave a couple weeks notice, so it's not like it was an issue prior to last draft or FA period).  We have a pro-bowl WR in TY, and we brought in a WR through draft and FA last year (unfortunately, they both got hurt and TY missed over 1/3 of the season, a stretch where we went 1-5), so Ballard didn't ignore that position, he just got unfortunate.  We had a pro-bowl TE (Doyle) and Ballard brought in Ebron who had 1 pro-bowl year for us.   Hooker had 3 INTs in <7 full games as a rookie.  In year 2, he was barely targeted.  Last year, he was rarely targeted.  I still think Hooker has plenty of talent and is a good player.  We had no pass rush last year and were young (and sometimes hurt) in the secondary.  I have no reason to believe Hooker won't be a solid player for us with an improved pass rush and some more help in the backfield.   Nelson is a two-time all-pro in two years.  That's almost unheard of.  He's widely considered as the best OL in the NFL (if not THE best, one of the best).  Our run game was a joke before he got here.  We're now a top 5 running team (and last year we were able to be top 5 without a balanced attack, in part due to injuries at WR/TE and in part due to inconsistent play by Jacoby).  Q has improved the OL with his play and has changed the demeanor of the whole OL with his attitude.  Hard to argue with that pick.  Let's not forget Ballard also got Leonard in that draft who has been a 2x pro-bowler, 1x first team all-pro, 1x 2nd team all-pro.   Ballard did not draft a C (Kelly came in under Grigson), so not sure why the 'C' keeps coming up in your posts.     Ballard acquired a team that was very lackluster outside of Luck at QB, AC at LT, Kelly at C, TY at WR, Viniatieri at K, and maybe a couple other spots.  He went ahead and added very good football players in areas where we needed them.   I see nothing wrong with Ballard's approach so far, considering the team he inherited.  He's made us a better team, despite a lot of adversity and bad luck.     First off, our goals were to protect Luck and to establish a running game. We were 5th in the league in rushing last year after being a joke as a running team for about a decade prior to that (really since Edge left).  Ballard made it clear from day 1 that this team would be able to run the ball... we can do that now.   Second off, we already had a LT (AC) prior to Ballard.  No reason he should've invested in another one to date (he will have to if AC retires).  He drafted Campbell and signed Funchess last year (they both got hurt -- would they have been as good as Deebo, who knows, but it's not like it went ignored).  We have Marlon Mack who, if healthy, should be a 1,200-1,500 yard runner in 16 games.  There is only one Derrick Henry in the league (IMO, nobody else is close to him as far as being that big, strong and fast -- some other RBs like Saquaon may be as good of RBs, but none are quite like DH), so that's a silly statement to make -- we've got a guy who can rush for >1,200 yards and we were top 5 in the league in rushing.     Ballard drafted Turay who by all means was set to have around double digit sacks last year, and he signed Houston who had double digit sacks.  We need to stay healthy on the DL and we need some interior pressure.  Our DL has been solid against the run.  Balalrd's only a piece or two away from that being a very good unit.   Overall, he's had very good drafts.  We have some young guys on this team that have shown a lot of promise and should improve over the next few years.  I'm really not sure what you're complaining about.
