Ha! Good one....

 

I wonder who our QC coach in the booth is?  It's his job to keep Chud from getting predictable (by feeding him real time info in the second half on down and distance) based upon his first half calls...

I'll take it  at this juncture.

 

Would have been nice to keep them off the board entirely and go to halftime with a two-score lead, but yeah, I'll definitely take it.  I was expecting this game to be an outright disaster.

I think the Steelers are going to put it in Big Bens hands second half. Probably throw a lot more and get the ball to Bell in space. We got to get more points on the board. Hopefully we can get some more drives going and possess the ball.

I wonder if Pagano will get credit, should they win...

If they win, by all means. If they collapse and loose like they have many other times this year in the 2nd half, then he bears that responsibility too

I agree.

Steelers showed some in-game adjustments already.  We have to counter.

He should. 

 

This would be a great win for Pagano, and the coaching staff. 

I agree.  Great game plan and execution on both sides of the ball.

Require cleaning up the right side of the O with those procedure calls, but they had a game plan and it is working to near perfection.

We get pass happy, and with the lead, it's inexcusable.

Not a fan of the kneel down there. Certainly I would call a safe play, but least run something.

 

Disagree. 

 

Too much risk, and not enough reward. 

 

I was hoping we would go into halftime with a happy touchdown lead.

We get the ball to start the half. A long sustained drive that ends in a TD, is my dream!

I agree with the first comment about the knee. Classic Pagano.  Call in your hands, time outs, time to go get another score and put an exclamation point on the half.  Nope.  Drives me crazy.   Plus, if ypu’re playing scared (afraid of the turnover), just resign.  Go get a FG, then star the next half with a TD and that’s two more scores.  Pagano plays scared.

30 seconds left. No, you do not play with fire. You have the lead. Do not risk a turnover. period.

I agree. 

 

I don't think we have had a great first drive of the second half all year.

It puts the pressure on the QB and O-line pass blocking. I'd avoid that too..

    • Assuming we come out of the 1st 7 games at 5-2 which is a likely outcome, we won't really find out what this team is made of until we play the Ravens and Titans.  
    • The only element that "might" struggle is our running game, but I don't think that will happen either. Our pass O, pass D, and rush D should all dominate. My fear is we come out with a very conservative game plan, playing soft zone, and trying to not pass. 
    • I'm optimistic too, but "potential" can be a trap. I like the measurables of the guys we have, but most are wildcards. And let's be honest, the "potential" we've had has been a bit stunted in terms of growth due to QB woes 2 of our last 4 years. But yes, we do have a lot of speedy athletic, although raw and small school guys at WR. TE is however another story. If we remove Burton from the conversation (he's not a traditional TE, and is more slot than anything), Doyle is the only proven, and MAC is the only one I see with legit potential. At RB, Taylor is the only legit true RB aside from Mack. Wilkins is good depth, but he's not bell cow between the Ts guy. He's a zone rushing back most effective on the edge. Great depth, and will look great later in games behind our OL, but not a #1. Hines is a great APB and is legit. 
    • The Colts not only need to win, but they need to come out and make a statement on Sunday. They need to destroy the Jets on both sides of the ball and win this game by a landslide.
    • Ballard completely rebuild 98% of the roster in three years. I don't count 2017 because he didn't have his own coaching staff and had to deal with Pagano. Even with Andrew Luck retiring, Ballard never stopped building the Colts into the highly talented roster they currently have today. I don't think Ballard gets enough credit just like I don't think Andrew Luck got enough when he was carrying the Colts pitiful roster for multiple years on his back.
