Ballard might have to add a franchise QB to our rebuild shopping list if Luck doesn’t start looking better than what we have seen this season thus far. 

It was raining and the LT and starting RB and TE were out against the Superbowl champions. Some people need to chill.

Technically they were missing some big players.  Can't overlook Sproles, he always wrecks the Colts.  Not to mention Jeffrey.

Yeah, but the reason they have 9 DBs is because you are at a point in the game where you have to go deep to have a chance.  They're giving up the short throws because they know that the short throws don't give us a chance to win..........and yet we're content to take the short throws.  That is troubling.  You can't just take what the defense gives you there because the defense is deliberately giving you what doesn't give you a chance to win.  In that situation, you've got to challenge the 9 DBs and if you get picked off, you get picked off.  You were going to lose anyway, and you don't improve your chances by taking the short passes.  In my mind, the only reason why you don't go deep there is because you don't want to put it on public display that Luck can't make the deep throws.

Umm...no.  It's like throwing into triple coverage.  It's just not smart.

You don't throw deep just for the sake of throwing deep.  You may as well do that all game.

It's just not a smart strategy.  You try to get it downfield as far as you can and just throw the hail mary, like they did.  I don't see any other way.  Throwing deep is like throwing the hail mary on 1st down with 48 seconds left.  Just doesn't make football sense to me.

yea, when the D holds Carson Wentz to 20 you gotta win, no excuses. Gotta clean that up next week.

And the fact that they had the ball with super great field position three times, I think, and came away with nothing but field goals. It seemed they were mostly misplaced balls, except for Rogers dropped pass.

It wasn’t raining last week.  Luck has to step it up.  He might still be hurt which is understandable and sad.  But on the field he isn’t playing good enough right now.  Not for his pedigree.

You want him to catch the passes for Rogers and Ebron? And block for the LT?

No, I want him to place the ball properly, and make great decisions, because he is the QB, the general, and most important, affective, and highest paid player on the offense. The opportunities were handed to them on a silver platter. 

 

Just because he was probably the biggest factor in them losing doesn't mean he was the only one on offense at fault. 

 

I love Luck, but he was quite subpar today.

I'm thinking we chalk it up to rust. If he doesn't look better by week 8, then I'll worry

......which he is supposedly fully recovered from.  Or is the shoulder injury still a factor?

I would say it isn't fully recovered and game play doesn't help. They may have said he's fully recovered but all teams blow smoke up backsides when they're discussing sensitive issues. Hopefully it's just that and nothing more serious.

Luck 25 of 40 for 164 yards.  1 TD.

 

Wentz threw for 255 yrds in his first game action of any kind this season. 

He also has an o-line and receivers who catch the ball.

Did Wentz have a serious shoulder injury?

Leg injury. ACL?? Can't remember.

Agreed...I’m starting to worry some now because if you are objective Luck’s passes aren’t looking right. Something is definitely wrong.  Luck did not attempt to throw one pass down field on that last drive and had to be removed for Brisset on the Hail Mary attempt.  That’s not normal...for a guy with his kind of arm.

Yeah I feel like it's going to take awhile for Luck to get his strength back.  Even the announcer said he was coming back off a potential careering ending type of injury.  Yeah no comparison between Carson coming off a Knee injury and Luck coming off a potential career killing shoulder injury.

He over threw Ebron downfield on that last drive on a first down. So he did try.

Luck was also the leading rusher.

Don’t remember that at all.  He was pitching guys towards the sidelines up until Brisset’s Hail Mary throw at the end.  

 

 

It is is what it is.  I hope his shoulder is okay and he returns to playing the kind of football we have come to associate with him.  Might take more time than we thought.  Right now he is essentially a Punch and Judy style QB.

All game you're not in a position where you have to throw deep to have a chance to win.  You're not in a position where you have to score a TD within a minute, otherwise you lose.  In that situation, there is a reason why the defense is giving you the short passes.  That reason is because if you take the short passes, you lose.  Taking what the defense gives you knowing that what the defense gives you will result in a loss is also not smart strategy.

Yeah, we have no run game.   What's new? Is your point that Luck played fine, and that it's everyone else's fault that the offense was horrible?

 

Because my point is that they all sucked including Luck, the QB, which is the most Important player on offense, and especially this offense. I don't see how you disagree with that, if that's what you're doing.

Anybody think they call that defensive holding on Sheard if he plays for the Patriots, Rams, Eagles, or another top team in the league? Not making excuses, but I've never seen that called and I've seen it happen since I was a kid!

 

Agreed,

 

Though, if you watch the play, Lane Johnson sells the hell out of it.

 

He throws his hands up and flops around like an NBA player as if Sheard is holding him back single-handedly with one arm while engaged w another lineman and like he (Johnson) cannot break free.

 

Smart sell by him. Lousy call in that time of the game but what can you do?

    • It really is an excellent history. Some really great players you mentioned , and plenty of banners. The only thing I don’t like is the finalist banners in a stadium. I think banners should be reserved for division or conference championships , and the Super Bowl. The banners also highlight how great Peyton Manning really was. A lot of banners during that era. 
    • BCS stadiums fill up for non conference games with the home teams fans primarily.  You don't think they'd show up for their teams playoff games?  As to the traveling fans most of the games in the BCS that are played the stadiums are 80-90% if not more filled with fans from the home team not the traveling team.  Better records/placement/seeding would give the teams who have earned the home games and their fans a chance to see their team play.  As to the visiting team you could incorporate the bowl games into a playoff format and they'd be televised as they are now.  Don't try and tell me that the visiting teams fans fill the away stadiums now (they don't) those are primarily the home teams.   I follow the FCS playoffs and watch many of the games on ESPN+.  Every announcer and color commentator (most color commentators covering these games are ex-NFL Players).  Many of those guys played at FBS schools.  They all say the same thing.  The FBS is missing out and the FCS is the way to do it regarding playoffs.  If the FBS had a 24 team playoff format where the conference champions got a seed/bye and the rest of the teams making the playoffs were voted in based on their records the interest in a true FBS playoff would be way higher than what you currently have.   There are so many meaningless bowl games where you have half empty stadiums if you are lucky are meaningless to the average fan.  The only ones going to those bowls are family, friends and those who want to take a vacation assuming the game is played somewhere they actually would want to spend some time.    
    • I read your previous posts as well. As a fan I would be fine with just the Indianapolis history but I didn't become a fan until the Colts moved here in 1984. So that is why I am ok with it. Since the Colts have been in Indy, we would have plenty banners: 1987 AFC East Division Champs 1995 AFC Conference Finalist 1999 AFC East Division Champs 2003 AFC South Division Champs 2003 AFC Conference Finalist  2004 AFC South Division Champs 2005 AFC South Division Champs 2006 AFC South Division Champs 2006 AFC Conference Finalist 2006 AFC Champs 2006 World Champions 2007 AFC South Division Champs 2009 AFC South Division Champs 2009 AFC Conference Finalist  2009 AFC Champions 2010 AFC South Division Champs 2013 AFC South Division Champs 2014 AFC South Division Champs 2014 AFC South Division Champs 2014 AFC Conference Finalist   -Great history but not any big accomplishments since the 2014 season. What I consider big accomplishments are winning your division, making the AFC Title Game, winning the AFC, winning the SB.   My Indianapolis ROH would consist of: Offense Peyton Manning and his number #18 would be retired! (QB) Marvin Harrison and his number #88 would be retired! (WR) Reggie Wayne (WR) Edge James (RB) Eric Dickerson (RB) Marshall Faulk (RB) Chris Hinton (OG/L-ROT) Jeff Saturday (C) Jim Harbaugh (QB)   Defense Dwight Freeney (DE) Robert Mathis (DE) Bob Sanders (S)   SP Teams Adam Vinatieri
