Colts @ Ravens Saturday Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

We have brought pressure on only a couple of plays. 

 

Every pass play the Ravens draw up is quick hitting. We need to just come after Flacco, and take the chance of giving up something big. 

 

We are coaching scared!

 

Let these players ball out. Put it on them to win today!

I hate this soft zone defense

 

It sucks to witness the coward play-calling. I would rather lose by 3 or 4 scores than play prevent defense all game.

 

The coaches have absolutely no faith at all in these players.

The only thing it prevents is getting your defense off the field

Dungy won a bunch of battles with it. Could be 9-7, but half the secondary was playing bingo or something and gave up a TD.

Pagano;s making it rain, too

That plays into the Colts' strength against the run. Best move he's made in a while.

I would rather lose trying to win. Our coaches are not giving our defense a chance to make a play. They have no confidence in these players. 

 

We have to come after Flacco or we have no chance.

Pagano moved the game to Baltimore so our fans could not attend

Why is Aiken still on this team . Guy has cost them at least 2 wins this year. 

 

I thought it was a terrible signing. 

 

Not that I am always right, but the Ravens let him walk for a reason.

I disagree ..not against this team....

Confidence? Most of our players on he field are backups on defense

Ravens aren't explosive on offense....no safety help and single coverage in the secondary probably guarantees losing big

He can't catch the football. He's useless.

Heres a good example..we can rush 3 or 4 and drop 7 or 8

 

or we can 'go after him' with 6 or 7 and give up a TD

Or get to the QB once in a while

Basically we either have balls or we don't have balls.

Have you watched the 2017 Colts?

 

Being down at halftime is not a good thing. You think this gets better?

 

Someone get this man a drink!

I agree with OldUncleMark. A dropped pass by Aiken, a blocked field goal, a missed field goal by 1 yard and a confused secondary gives up an easy TD on 3rd and goal from the 6, for a 13-7 half. The game plan is good enough to be winning. The players have to own up to this score.

Brissett is doing much better against the blitz than in past games. 

Chuck's clapping is building his self esteem and his confidence.

If trends stay consistent then we will lose this game by 4 touchdowns. 

 

I am no where near a Nostradamus, but that vision is even clear to me.

    • I think some of this is a bit harsh. Honestly I don't think it matters who he sat behind. In Denver, he was likely already on some sort of "probation", but still managed to win the backup roster job (2018) after spending a year (2017) on IR. He also beat out Lynch who we forget was a 1st rounder... Not saying Lynch is all that, he's not, but still it's not nothing.   We can't say the coaches didn't think he was the best chance to win. We can probably assume that Denver (Elway is pretty controlling) was taking a calculated risk keeping him on the roster, and simply were treating him similar to the how the Colts did in 2019. The fact he won the back up job at all after the behavioral flags and a year on IR is something I wouldn't have bet on.   But I do agree he should not factor into draft plans. I think it's fair to say after Ballard's comments, he's still in the earning trust phase. Like you, I wanted to see him in the last couple of games, but I also knew that was unlikely as they probably didn't want to diss JB. Putting him out there, even in a situation where JB hypothetically got hurt, would have opened up a can of worms that likely couldn't be closed lol. In short, the FO played it ultra-conservative, and that does not surprise me one bit.    Whatever "plan" they have for him, I hope it's clear and finite. I got the opposite feeling listening to Ballard. It just felt like Ballard was saying, he needs to behave well, and if we ever need you, we'll let you know... I'd prefer a situation where it's clear as day, where Ballard says something like "kid, you've been a dumbxxx... you owe us two years of perfect behavior, XXX hours of service in the Indy community, substance abuse counselling, sports shrink counselling, and lots of hard work... and if you do that, you'll have a fair and open competition in year 3"... Kelly isn't in a position to complain about anything regardless of whatever conditions he's under, so who knows. I'd love to be a fly on the wall for some of those conversations though.
