No one player wins or loses a game....that is a childish and simplistic statement

 

You can point at some very specific incidents costing the Colts the game.

 

Clayton's boneheaded play that would kept the lead for the Colts.

 

Jack Doyle not protecting the ball after his catch. No doubt Luck would have led the Colts all the way hadn't it been for that fumble.

Yup, it basically came down to that play. We played well.

We were not obviously pathetic today. 

Didn't say we were obviously pathetic.  It was mentioned that once again we blew the game in the fourth quarter and the poster was told to turn in his fan card. It's not like this is the first time we've had a poor fourth quarter.

Maybe a bit simplistic, but our play to end the first half and failing to do anything to start the second gave cincy reason to be optimistic.

Well, I predicted 34-21 Bengals. I still hate how this all went down. Had to have this one. Could be staring at a very rough first month.

That ended our hopes but wasn’t the only reason we lost today.  Plenty of mistakes all around.  Tough loss but hopefully one to grow on.

Until they start doing the same stuff as years past.

 

I'm assuming your saying the same thing to the guys who hope Luck returns to his past glory?

I don't understand why you guys so down over the first game with basically a whole new team and coaches.  We played well besides a few plays and I'm proud and excited for the season.  I hope super bowl but i Just want a competitive team improving each week with our young talent and new schemes.  WOW SMH

It's so sad to see that the team still only playing 2 quarters on a new season, It feels so bad to lose after being 23-10 lead to such a horrible team that did nothing to deserve the win.

I only hope that we won't be 12-4 on the first quarter and 4-12 by the end of the game.

Pluses from this game:

A lot of 3rd and shorts,

Luck looked good.

Play calling was mixed well.

Running game was better.

Drives were sustained.

Tough way to lose a game but so it goes. We should all be worried about the mount of pressure Luck saw today. That line just does not work.

Very winnable game, right up to the final 40 seconds.  Their body language in the 4th though.  They're not expecting to win.

how are we gonna make the playoffs?

 

I read that of the 16 teams that go 0 - 1, an average of only 4 - 5 of those make it to the playoffs. So it is not an easy task, especially for a young team.

Sigh.

 

Playoffs: Was never going to happen this season. All level heads expect a 7-9 to a 9-7 record in a solid AFC.

 

Play calling: With the exception of the lull at the start of the 2nd half, play calling appeared balanced and on point. The ball was coming out mostly quickly with some shots down the field. The Bengals have talent on the D, so a lull was frankly expected once they could get a look at what the Colts were trying to do. We also witnessed the most points scored by the Colts in the 1st half of a game since Luck joined the Colts. Grant was good, TY was efficient for the most part (The Ghost OPI not withstanding). Doyel was making plays late until he didnt. Hynes was flashing great as well in his role. This O will be borderline great IMO by season's end, sans injuries.

 

The D showed a lot today, good and bad. We flashed great especially in the 1st half, and then some simple bone-headed mistakes by youth. We created pressure, and turnovers. We then had guys taking bad angles, horse collars, and PI seemingly all at once.

 

I hate losing. I hate losing more than I love winning. That said, I believe we see growth here which is all we could really ask for. This is a positive step for the Colts, which I can embrace

They did force a few turnovers, but outside of that, the D was pretty bad.  With that pass rush, a good QB will eat them alive.

    • Some of the debating over the "meaning" of the polls are kinda funny. The overwhelming majority do not feel JB is the answer. Call him average or below average, really doesn't matter. Chad Kelly getting a shot doesn't really matter either. Neither does JB starting till we find "the guy"....   Bottom line is most folks aren't happy and want something different and that was the million dollar question. How it all happens is another another question (actually multiple questions) altogether. 
    • Who needs to go to any other site when we have you, great work 
    • You nailed it!!!!!!!!!!!! This is what is happening!!!!!!!!!!! Great post. Yes, we have to try and keep trying to do what is required. The team has regressed this year and its because of JB. This injury thing with JB is a bunch of crap along with less then desired WR's. Please Mr. Ersay do what has to be done. The team will never go anywhere with this guy. 
    • On the first bolded, I absolutely agree. He lost so much from last year (OL, WR, RB, and coach), and his D is a lot worse. They are in catch up mode a lot this year, and asking him to do way to much.   On the comments about him making a mistake, I disagree. He's shown what he can do with decent talent, and with a decent OC (Yost), last year. Most reports said he was weighing a transfer to get back to Yost. At best, he'd just be replicating the season he had last year, which was very good. Would it raise his stock, maybe... but he's starting to trend middle of the 1st and either the 3rd or 4th QB taken. If he stayed in school, and he had a good year, best he is going to do is be second (after Lawrence), and he's lost out on a paid year. It's kind of a wash IMO if he does go middle first this year.
