We need to draft or bring in another QB to compete with Brissett.  If Brissett is your starter for more than 2-3 games, forget about it.  You're not going anywhere.

Situational QBing is a huge problem for Brissett. Red zone, 3d downs, etc... What Luck excelled at last year is what is failing us this year offensively.

TY pushed the route up field rather than crossing the face of the safety. I blame him. 

Yeah why did he do that...is he just worried about getting smoked by the safety so he left his team out to dry? If so that’s pretty gutless.

A receiver can’t deviate from his route at the last minute like that...  TY wanted no part of going over that middle...

If we are in a situation where we need another QB to compete with Brissett, then we're probably not going to solve those problems by having another QB to compete with Brissett.  If Luck can't come back next year then we had better be in total rebuild mode, otherwise we will be on track to becoming the Browns in the long term.

Picked off! Man we got no points. 16-3 at Half.

It appears that was Hilton's fault all the way. You saw where Brissett was throwing the football to a spot Hilton should have been. I like his upside but Hilton drives me nuts he is not and probably will not ever be a super star because his head holds him back

That’s exactly why he did it.  JB & TY don’t have the chemistry where JB knows TY will push that route up the seam at the last second.  He threw it like he would continue on his path.  If he had done so it would have been a great throw & catch.

I thought we were trading Brissett for a 2nd rounder ? I thought a 5th or 6th but was smartly corrected.

Luck is just much better and a closer. Nothing against Brissett, as I have said before he is a Great backup, could be a Good starter with more experience? With Luck don't you think we wouldn't of won or held on to some of the leads we have had in some of these close games. When healthy Luck is easily a Top 10 QB in the league. Cant lose a guy like that and replace him with a backup QB and expect the same results.

In most scenarios I would agree with you, but this is a lost season at this point.  I wouldn't mind seeing them take some strategic risks (not risks that increase the risk of injury) to maybe give themselves a chance.

I disagree completely we got shut out last time we played them. Get points first and then work towards being competitive for heavens sakes

I'm not getting into that.  A second rounder seems high to me, but whatever.  The point is that he is not the long-term solution at QB.  He is a serviceable backup, and that is the extent of his abilities.  If Luck can't come back next season, then it is time to strip this team down and build it back up around another QB.  That QB is not going to be Brissett or anybody that is brought in to "compete" against him.........at least I hope not.

TY is the best WR we have and Luck trusts him the most. He isn't Great but Very Good. Today he isn't playing well but he is the least of our problems in the future.

Total rock bottom. Wish I could like this years colts team. But I don’t for the most part. They are the least likable team since Dickersons last year.

TY was open behind Jalen. A good throw there and it’s a touchdown to TY.  Yeah, maybe it was meant for TY to bring it back, but I think a good QB makes the adjustment and throws the TD.

...and I argued pretty aggressively last time that getting shut out doesn't matter.  If you get shut out or you score 3 points, who cares?  That doesn't matter.  The only thing that matters in terms of score differential is whether you win or lose.  I don't give a flying flamingo about playing to keep the losing score closer.  That is pointless.  "Well, we lost, but we didn't get shut out this time."  Who cares?  Does going for it on 4th and 1 mean that you are probably going to lose by more or even get shut out if you don't make it?  Yeah, but you're probably going to lose if you take the 3 there, so who cares?  The Colts are a team now that has to take some strategic risks to even have a reasonable chance at winning.......and even that is not going to guarantee a victory.

When they are going for 2 and known to throw jump balls to there 6'7 TE why not switch your 5'11 SS with your 6'3 Safety?

That's a chemistry thing, and that's forgivable.  Keep in mind that Brissett got thrown into the fire a few games into the season and didn't get training camp with these guys.  There are going to be differences in interpretation like that (if the receivers are given the freedom adjust their routes based on their interpretation of the coverage).

I don't think anyone came to play today did they?  Looks like they have all quit.

NO, Pagano is the  coach for 2017. Irsay is going to keep his word but the wrecking ball comes out in January

    • Sorry, I didn't get any update in notifications, should have checked your profile to see if you have created any new post. Growing pains of being new here. I'd you have time in the morning, let's start.   With the first overall draft pick, Cincinnati Bengals select   Joe Burrow, QB, LSU    
    • @Nadine Please pin this thread for us. Thank you. 
    • Feels like we are going to play more pressman coverage 
    • With the draft fast approaching here is my one and only mock. I incorporated some trades in my mock this year because Ballard always seems to trade and I also think he will try to acquire more picks. My trades are reasonable and provide value.( I think)    Round 2: trade pick 34 to Browns for pick 41 and 115, select Denzel Mims, wr Baylor.    Round 2: trade pick 44 to Falcons for pick 47 and 119, select A.J. Terrell, cb Clemson.    Round 3: pick 75, Brycen Hopkins, te Purdue.    Round 4: pick 115, Calvin Throckmorton, ol Oregon.    Round 4: pick 119, Akeem Davis-Gaither, lb Appalachian St.    Round 4: pick 122, Trevis Gipson, de, Tulsa.    Round 5: pick 160, Parnell Motley, cb Oklahoma.    Round 6: pick 193, Terrell Burgess, s, Utah    Round 6: pick 197, Steven Gonzales, og, Penn St. Well, what do you think, I know the glaring omission in my draft is qb, but I just can't see spending a draft pick  on a player, regardless of who he may be, that doesn't have anymore potential than Chad Kelly. Lots of defense in my draft, and 2 o-linemen to try to soften the loss of Haeg. My favorite pick would be Motley, the dude can flat out play.  
    • Hey,  I'm sorry Archer,  I've been meaning to respond to your post, but life has been crazy the last few days...     You make an interesting point that I'd like to address.    And much of what I'm about to write I'm paraphrasing from an NFL.com article from earlier in the week,  so it's not just me saying what I'm about to say,  it's NFL people too...   The reason to delay the draft?   Optics,  how it will look to millions.   As I'm sure you know,  the worst of the Virus is expected to hit in Mid-April.  NFL execs are worried that the worst death toll numbers will be the headlines on every newscast,  on every newspaper around the country during that time.    How does it look if in 30 NFL cities,  the news anchors are talking about the days top story --- record numbers of Carona deaths,  and suddenly one says....    "Now here's Bob to tell us about team's newest draft choice!"   The optics would be horrible.   That's why many withing the NFL wanted this moved at least into May and hopefully out of the window of the worst virus news.    The twin headlines would be the worst.    But Goodell has ruled and I'm sure you noticed that he asked NFL Execs to stop talking about it in the press.    You don't often hear/read that from Goodell.   I hope Goodell is not making a terrible mistake.    We'll soon find out.   I know people are starving for some fun and good news,  but the timing couldn't be worse, and that's the reason to move it,  even if only two 2-3 weeks.    But that's not happening....   Again,  sorry for the delay in getting back to you....
