How do you as a coach put faith in a sub par offense that hasn’t performed ALL day to convert a forth down when you have one of the BEST field goal kickers in the league!!! FIRE PAGANO!!!!! I’d put my faith in Vinateri first!!!!

Jacoby is not a Talent when  are you guys going to get that through your skulls he is a backup quarterback that's all he is that's all he will be he does not have the talent to take a team to the next level he doesn't have the NFL experience to do that the interception should have showed you the whole nother ball should have showed you he cannot get the ball to the receivers he is a joke and he's making a laughing stock of the Indianapolis Colts

This is why you need an NFL quarterback with some experience to make those quick decisions on the Fly Jacoby just don't have it. Until he learns how to be an NFL quarterback, we are not going to win a game... this is coaching this is Jim's fault this is Chuck's fault, and whoever the general manager is

The ball is allowed to touch the ground.

 

As other have pointed out, the ground cannot be used to help secure the ball into a completion, only incidental contact is allowed.  If ball was moving or not completely secure at any point before hitting the ground, it might well be considered as the ground helping to secure the pass, thus being incomplete.

He is essentially a rookie still.  He'll make rookie mistakes.  This is Brissetts steep learning curve, plus he has plenty of tape on him for DC's to decipher.  He'll be great moving on next year as a good backup.  Every QB does better in the year following good exposure in the NFL...Only a few do exceptional year 1... Cam, Luck, Prescott, Watson...

 

Others take a little more time... Wentz, Goff, etc...  and all these recent picks to be starters.  JB will be fine.

Yes we can beat them up, and if I was Andrew I won't come back this year he will be the laughing stock of the NFL I would have a setback so bad you wouldn't see me until next June July

I guess that is the difference from a leader to what you would do?

What? Even Adam can't kick that long of a field goal.

I really thought the Colts were going to pull out the win(my heart was thinking that way).  My gut said, they'll find a way to blow it haha.  On a a positive note, I thought Colts +11 was a good bet.  They covered which helped me win my parlay.  Colts +11, Texans +7, Panthers +1, Cowboys -3 and Steelers -3. Now this week will probably be different, if the Texans are favored by 14 or less, I'll be forced to take them.  The Colts are a mess.  Hopefully we can build the defense up more, and put a good o line together next year.  Most of all, I hope Luck makes it back next year.

    • It is amazing that a lot of games can come down to only 1 or 2 game changing plays to determine a winner now days. It is a fine line between winning and losing. Tennessee won 4 games last year (At Seattle, Here, 49ers, Saints)  that I can remember because lady luck was on their side. They could have easily lost all of those games and been an 8-9 team. They would somehow get a crucial INT late when the opposing QB had a brain fart or they would convert a 4th and long then win on a last 2nd FG. Back in the day when we had Peyton we could make 2 or 3 mistakes and get away with it most of the time, now we can't nor can most teams.
    • Last year should be a case study for why it's very hard to win games in the NFL. Plenty of teams who should have won more, lost. Plenty of teams who should've lost, won. Gone are the days of cut and dry guaranteed winners. On paper the Bills should easily win their division, but in reality the flipping Dolphins could even win that title. 
    • I agree the OL doesn’t look elite now.   The difference is….   I wasn’t expecting it.   Not with two new guys.   And I’m not expecting it by wk1 of the regular season.    Too soon.    But I’m expecting it to be good enough to win with until it gets better.    Kevin Bowen has written our OL is no longer elite, but it can still be very good.   And I think that’s fair.   That’s what I’m hoping for.  
    • I agree with your last sentence for sure.  It looks like some on this thread don't realize the complexity of Oline play. And a major caveat here is that you can't really simulate the effectiveness in the running game, as I have stated almost every time I've commented on the oline.     However NCF, our Oline has also been getting beat up quite often in 1 on 1 matchups.  It's pretty evident.  In pass pro, most and at times all 5 linemen are going to be on their own.  Our pass pro was horrendous last season, and that can be largely accounted for by injury, but it was also horrendous late in the season, and unless people are hiding injury, we were mainly healthy.  If we have to chip and keep people in to combat this, then an already underwhelming pass catching unit will be even less whelming.    We don't look like a top unit right now, and if you don't see that, then we just see things differently.   I think it's imperative to this team's success that the OLINE plays at an elite or at least near elite level since there is so much invested in it, but right now it seems fairly obvious to me anyway that we don't seem to be on that trajectory.  
    • Lions IMO will be better than most people think this year. I have them at 5 wins, maybe 6. They lost a lot of close games last year. I could care less it was just the Lions, they are an NFL team. I suppose on opening day when we beat Houston, some will say it was only Houston  . Some in here think winning in the NFL is easy. Suit up and explain it to me
