First in third down made and first in third down efficiency.

 

I liked it very much. How many years have we been clamoring for the quick passing offense and the EP style of offense with crossing routes and slants? Once the OL improves by playing together more, we can get bigger chunks if Ds choke the underneath routes more. 

 

We would do it one game with Chud and Pep, and then go away for several games from it. Hope we can build upon what we started.

Wow.  I didn't think anyone put it up that much.  Must of been Brees and I wonder who the other was?

Sorry, I misread the stat line. Luck had the most attempts and most completions, second was Bree's at 37 and Rivers at 34 was third. 

 

Hes third in completion percentage

It's definitely the new NFL. Get the ball in play makers hands in space and let them go. These quick high percentage throws have been what NE has been doing for a decade now. I very much appreciated all the 3rd and 2s we faced yesterday instead of the 3rd and 8s. We had a lot more options and were a lot more successful moving the chains and keeping the defense rested. Honestly the 3 and outs at the start of the third is where the game changed for us. We had a manageable one I think on our second possession and we went for a big play instead of just converting it.....sometimes that can change all the momentum.

I loved the short passing game, Luck looked comfortable and great in it too. 53 attempts is way too many though but I am thinking he threw that many times because Mack was out.

How in the hell are we #8 with a bad offensive line, no running game, and no #2 WR? That is literally impossible...

Believe it or not, I was chuckling as I wrote this.

bad offensive line???? Andy Dalton and Luck were both pressured by the Defense and both only got sacked twice while QBs like Ben got sacked 4 times and Tyrod Taylor 7..so your statement is way off

    • Haven't done research on the 2020 draft yet, but if it ends up having an elite WR or OT, I wouldn't mind trading up this year. We'll have to see where we finish (hopefully 32 ), and make a decision from there. Ballard landing the Redskins 2nd rounder may be a brilliant move.
    • I had us 9-7 just based on guessing/hoping/predicting Luck would be healthy and play great. I was right but a lucky guess, I guess  . I thought that would get us a 6th seed. We won 10 games which got us in.
    • For the first time in a while, I am impressed with the Colts development of players. If this current trend continues, a lot of opinions will change. 
    • I had us going 10-6 and winning the AFC South. I knew with Luck back we'd be at minimum .500, and I thought by adding Nelson, Ebron, and Cain, our O would be pretty decent, and enough to take the South. We were 10-6, but didn't win the South.  I wasn't counting on our D being as good, so I guess they overachieved. Honestly I'm still not sold on our D. This year will be a much bigger test.
    • There appears to be a possibility that the Pacers acquire 31-year-old Eric Gordon, the shooting guard for the Rockets.   Houston wants Jimmy Butler but they don't have cap space to sign him. The 76ers would have to sign Jimmy and trade him to Houston. But Houston cant send the 76ers matching salaries because Philadelphia already has to sign Tobias Harris, JJ Reddick and soon Embid and Ben Simmons..   So the 76ers and Houston have to find a third team who could acquire some salary. In the theory of this trade: That team would be the Pacers who would take the final year of Eric Gordon's contract at $15 mil   Obviously, Gordon is an IU grad and Indianapolis native. He comes off the Houston bench behind Chris Paul and James Harden. 16.2 per game last year and 16.7 for his 11-year career..   Forgetting how crazy Houston's locker room would be with Paul, Harden and Butler, is there a downside to acquiring Gordon, who would start until Oladipo returns? We might have to give up next year's No.1 pick.
