Colts Vs. Bengals Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Didn't see that one coming.

Back to the drawing board.  Young team that has to learn how to win.  It will come.

Growing pains.

3 of our best players made critical mistakes - can't put it all on the young guys.

 

(Missed FG, TY dropped pass and Doyles fumble, all in the last 20 minutes of the game.)

I'm just * that we lost to such a horrible team. God, the Bengals hardly did crap the whole game and we still gave it to them.

We just need to learn to finish the game. Don't like us always losing our season opener.

They put up more of a fight than I thought, but I was definitely not expecting to win this game today anyway. It still sucks though. Just too many mistakes.

Well damn, looked really good most of the game. Then mistakes cost us in the end. Even though it may be a loss we have some serious potential

    • Where I am going with it is that you cannot extrapolate that reasoning as black and white and apply it to the NFL like apples to apples. If LSU's talent were No.1 worthy, Utah State in 2018 could have been a Top 30 team talent wise but barely a Top 80 team in 2019, talent wise. That level of talent disparity does not exist in the NFL, where even the worst team is somewhat competitive, though not at key moments to make enough plays to win enough.   It would be like asking Andrew Luck playing with a new O-line and WRs made out of CFL practice squad guys at best the next year, and Luck's play would plummet and he would be forced to take more chances to win thus leading to more mistakes as well. Every elite QB needs some weapons around him worth something, and unlike the NFL where the elite QB has the luxury of a little more continuity and stability of offensive systems or at least 60-70% of guys returning, that is not a luxury a college team has, let alone Utah State.   Besides, even Joe Burrow is not a generational prospect to say he could be elite. You don't get elite overnight even if you are Peyton Manning. It takes years of chemistry and continuity to get to a good floor. The college game is not the same to say "elite here in college translates to elite here in the NFL". That is flawed thinking and extrapolation. If you still agree to disagree, be my guest.  
    • To me it’s not a question. They are looking at this draft. They want him to help groom a QB. He could only play a year so drafting a QB in 2021 wouldn’t make sense. 
    • It's not as though they played LSU every game, Chad, so I'm not exactly sure where you were going with it.  I believe they played two ranked opponents each of the past two seasons.  The point is when the talent around him dropped, his play plummeted and the team sank.  If you're looking for an elite, franchise QB, that's not a good sign.  
    • No.   It’s hard to think of anyone that we’re overpaying?   Much of the team are on rookie contracts.   The rest are former free agents so their contracts somewhat reflect the free agent market.   Do you have anyone in mind?
