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

    • I know.  What seemed like an amazing possible supplemental draft becomes nothing 
    • Luck played the Steelers once, in October 2014. In that game, the Colts defense allowed B. Roethlisberger to throw for 6 TDs and 522 yards. The Colts defense allowed the Steelers to score 51 points. (Luck threw for 3 TDs and 400 yards).   During the Luck era, the Colts played the Patriots in 2012, 2014, 2015 (twice) and 2018. Here are how any points the Colts defense allowed: 59, 43, 42, 45, 34 and 38.   You  are blaming Luck for not winning against the Steelers and Patriots, but it does seem like you are overlooking the other aspects of football. It's a team sport. And when I show how many points the opposing teams have put up, it should be clear that the Colts defense was not up for the challenge. But we can continue to blame Luck.
    • dude played in 6 was it playoff games? Won half of them? Beat a SB winning D in Denver.  The argument that both of you made in your own way and for different reasons was that the Colts roster wasn't good. True story.  Watson is the better NFL QB right now for the same reason Chad Kelly is, they're playing. Beyond that? I'm pretty sure Luck is still upper tier of ability and debating that seems kind of pointless- but he's not playing so pointless is operative to the whole of the conversation. 
    • Watson was drafted 5 years later than Luck. He may not of been as good as Luck was in 2014, but I'll take Watson at 24 over a rusty Luck at 30 anyday. Wilson may of won the SB based off his running attack and defense, but he is easily the 2nd best QB today and has carried that team for awhile since the defense has fallen off. He has also never had an O-Line and his WR's have been subpar until recently.    Luck didn't win the important games. He never beat the Pats or Steelers in his career, and those were the games that mattered most since they were in our conference and were our obstacles to making the SB at that time. His last game will be known for losing to Patrick Mahomes in his 2nd year. I have serious doubts Luck would of ever beat Mahomes and the Chiefs, and there are several other QBs like Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson (in the division) that were as good or better than him.    When you are the no1 overall pick, you go to a worse team, plain and simple. You want to argue Luck had it worse than Wilson when Luck was the best prospect since Elway supposedly and Wilson was a 3rd round QB. Maybe Wilson was underrated and Luck was overrated? Most QBs that go no1 overall don't win SBs early in their careers for a reason, the team they get drafted to is awful and they are supposed to be the savior and the answer to the team. Luck may of been that, but he took his ball and went home.   No excuses. Ballard built a team around him, and Luck even played with a solid version of it in 2018. He quit, and now guys like Wilson, Jackson and Watson are the new faces of the NFL. I'd rather have one of them then someone who doesn't have passion for the game, and screwed all of his teammates and the fans.
