Colts Vs. Texans Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Need to get 3 here.

 

If we stop turing it over and stop giving them short fields, the D can hold them down.

I don’t think he’s the problem today, drops and no protection or run game.  

Its all the friggin turnovers man.  They come at the most inopportune times and almost always leads to points for our opponents.  Sigh.

I don't get why Luck is being blamed. Peyton and Brady would be doing terrible behind this o line today too.

 

He's barely been given a second to raise the ball to throw it...

Can you remember when we had a offense and everybody was screaming for a better D? Well.... We git that now. But the O.... :Cry:

 

Well, remember, defense wins championships.  It doesn't matter what your offense does as long as you have a good defense.  Of course, it's a lot easier to say ridiculous stuff like that when you have a good offense........

Turnovers are killers... 

But 1 is a complete outlier and the other was a complete whiff by the O line.

 

Watt looks like Watt today. Scary.

That Ryan Kelly fumble killed the momentum our offense had and gave all the momentum for Texans

 

Don't forget that punt that put them there .

Class move by Watt who came over to congratulate AV on his achievement.

 

You don’t see that type of thing very often.....    really good guy...

He is definitely not the problem no idea why everyone just piles it on him!! he has no weapons other than TY that can get separation no to mention they are dropping the easiest passes.

Down 21-10 at Half, still doable but very disappointing. Not what I expected. 

Besides being a fan, what about this offense makes you think we can score and win this game

But everyone was an advocate of not signing any FA WRs because it meant saving money. This is the result of the bargain shopping that Ballard is applauded for

Yeah, just like every 5th rounder has little chance to make the team.   You really need to look up the word hyperbole.

Im a fan.

 

But i also saw a proper drive to open the game today, have seen Frank Reich make proper adjustments this year, and have seen Andrew Luck down two scores plenty of times to know that they can win this game.

Just don't turn it over and play steady.  The offense gave them all their points with turnovers and short fields.  The defense can hold them down and maybe get a turnover.

Can Andrew Luck finally carry this team? If he can't a decision will be looming...

 

Finally? Or do you mean since returning?

Or Deon Cain!

Deon Cain would be our starting #2 right now. 

 

Dorsett looks good in NE. His speed would have been good in this scheme.

    • Just an "effect".. Ok lol. And you didn't answer the question about how JB would look with all new starters along the OL, RB, WR, and TE... How many times did we listen to people saying JB just needed good WRs, while still having a top 5 OL, top 10 running game, and two of the better TEs in the league. We even had to listen to some blame the OL which was the hot take of the year...   Out of Love's top 3 WRs, two had zero stars (247 recruiting composite), and the only one to have any stars was the transfer from Utah who couldn't manage to start in 4 years... One of his top 3 WRs ran a 4.96 40 time (Nathan) lol.... Another, Thompkins, ran a 4.71 lol... Both are horribly slow for a WR. And both were small as hell (5-7, and 5-8)... An "effect" lol... Pascal, our slowest WR runs a 4.55.... That alone is huge, and that doesn't even begin to weight the OL, RB, D, coaches, scheme, etc.. 
    • Are the rumors real   is there such a thing?    
    • No what I meant is what round will they take the qb
    • That's why I think if we sign Rivers or any other FA QB we will draft an OT with our 1st pick and sign a DT in FA.  I think we draft an OT this year because Ballard knows he is in the perfect spot to get a good one.   Next year there is a good chance he won't be.  Ballard also said the team is ready to bring in a big time FA.  I actually think he is going to bring in more than one.  JMO.  
    • 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 new WRs made out of CFL squad guys that haven't played together 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, that does not make him a QB with less than elite traits. 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, who at least got to start several years with continuity at Tennessee. It takes a few years of chemistry and continuity to get to a good floor, and then get to elite, even if it is sitting a year or more like Rodgers and Mahomes. 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 "broad brushing" extrapolation. If you still agree to disagree, be my guest, I think I have explained my point as well as I can.
