Content with playing for a tie? When a tie doesn't get us to the playoffs? Get out of here. I love it. Play to win or don't play at all. Pagano would have punted the hell out of the ball and smiled. We played to win. Get over it. 

But we lost, so what you getting at? We’re 1-3

Agreed. Play to win. Most of this forum have been screaming about being too soft and not aggressive enough. I have no problem with the call, but the D got gashed. That shouldn't have happened. Should have triple teamed Hopkins

You can certainly say two CFR decisions (first 2 pt conv attempt and that ridiculous ot play) were responsible for this loss.

Alright so the season comes down to Thursday night in Foxborough in my opinion. I only expected 6-7 wins anyway but our luck has been horrible this year in the 3 losses.

Im ok with this. This team isn't winning the SB this year, much less their division. Try to win what you can, and if you lose oh well

not only did we give the win to Houston , but we gave them the tie breaker. 

1-3 each , and Houston is on top. 

......well , at least Luck looked good. If Johnson catches the ball , on the 1st possession of OT , we win this game.

The chance was their. Luck had Rogers, just a low pass and he just couldn’t hold on. I’m upset, sure, but we had the chance, we almost won because of that call. Everyone is mad at a potentially game clinching call just because it didn’t go right.

It didn't work, but I didn't mind going for the win.

 

That's three excruciating losses, though.  Sunday is starting to suck.

Is that the worst call of all time?

 

No.....hardly....

....The Houston DB made a good play..

But Houston outplayed us.they were up 18..

That was a Pagano style coaching blunder. Absolutely mind boggling. 

 

Take solace in the fact that’s not been a weekly occurrence like last year?  Just brutal, though, brutal. <angerrrrr>

It's aggressive, they need a win, so I am not upset with it.  If the team was 2-1 or 3-0, that would be a different story.

What a game! What an effort from Luck and the offense in the second half! Although we lost, you have to appreciate what Luck did in this game...with so many drops by the receivers and no run game, he willed them back into the game.

 

Welcome back Andrew Luck.

It was a risky call, but not a bad call. Poor execution perhaps. 

 

If I were the HC I had chosen to punt, and draw...but that's me.

id rather lose than tie

 

Really?  I'd rather be 1-2-1 than 1-3........although I doubt that it is going to make a difference down the stretch.  I don't see this being a playoff team.

That decision by frank looks to me as the front office and Frank take that season for developing and rather take the higher pick than a tie.... 

I think that's been the mindset from the beginning.  They aren't just going to come out and say it though.  Spent no money in free agency at all , etc.. It's clear .

Hey Cubs are winning haha . Damn that was a suck way to lose, this forum will be negative again for 3 days. Damn we should be 4-0 lmao . At least we know Andrew doesn't have a noodle arm :thmup:

 

Very tough loss and we are on our way to 6-10 now folks. I do like the fact we have been in every game though, how many Yards did Andrew have today? Almost 500 wasn't it, anyway yeah I know we lost. Let the fire Reich Threads begin :billiejean:

    • Fair enough, that's your take. For me, I take Lamb or Jeudy. This team has not had a true #1 receiver since Harrison and where TY has been great, I always viewed him as a WR1a or WR2. The unfortunate part of the Colts team was that TY was/is our defacto WR1. Guys like Lamb and Jeudy don't come around a lot, Lamb will be a difference maker wherever he goes. May not matter for the Colts as the Cards may grab this kid before we get a shot, but it's an interesting dilemma that faces this Colts team this year where the strategy moving forward is the true mystery here.  The wide receiver core in FA, outside of Cooper doesn't look that fruitful. I only hope the Colts don't go back to trying to take one of these WRs in late 2nd or beyond from a "deep pool" only to end up Fountain and Cain all over again. 
    • Nothing wrong with not being sold on these guys. That’s the idea. It’s projection. But you have to at least be sold on the idea that based on their traits and the fit with our scheme, that these are two guys who would fit here.    Plus if you’re not sold on these two guys who both have unbelievable traits, you won’t be sold on anyone. Like I said, next year the top two QBs may not come out and their both likely to be top 5 locks. Newman is still an unknown. And even looking beyond that, is anyone excited about the idea of Kyle Trask, Bo Nix, or Kellen Mond?   This is basically the best time for the Colts to draft a QB. 
    • I’m not typically a fan of CBS Sports prospect rankings.   I scrolled down and didn’t see anything too terrible until after pick 50.      Saw a bunch of names that I think should be much higher.    Glad to see my man Chad72 using my Mantra...   32 different teams...   32 different boards.   
    • I want the QB. A few reasons why.   1) Yes, the QB could bust. So could any other player at any other position. No one is bust proof. And eventually you have to draft a guy that you can build around; at least, that's my preference, as opposed to trying to build around a mid tier guy like Carr or Mariota, or making a run at someone like Stafford or Rivers.   2) QB play directly affects your ability to win games, to a far greater degree than any other single position. You mentioned Hopkins, and while he was great and productive even with below average journeyman QBs, the Texans didn't win games consistently without good QB play. Matt Schaub wasn't great, but he had some good production and decent efficiency for them. Also, Schaub only played with Hopkins for eight games in 2013, and they went 2-6. The Keenum took over and they went 0-8. Andre Johnson was also still there, and still highly productive, yet they didn't win games. You need at least reasonably good QB play to win games consistently.   3) Brady and Luck's ability to make JAGs look good is overstated. Those QBs showed an ability to remain productive despite having underwhelming second and third receivers, but that's because they relied heavily on pretty good/great #1 options, and had good TE play. When Luck had 40 TDs in 2014, it was TY, Fleener and Allen combining for 23 TD catches; in 2018, it was TY and Ebron. For Brady, it's been Edelman and Gronk. It's not great QB + scrubs equals productive passing game. It's great QB + 1-2 really good receiving options.   So comparatively, while a rookie isn't going to necessarily elevate the play of everyone around him right away, no matter who the QB is, you need more offensive weapons. Or at least, better/more consistent play out of the weapons you have.   4) You can take Herbert or Love in the first, and sign a good veteran WR, draft a TE, (or some other combo/configuration) and continue to develop the guys we have. And you still have TY, Doyle, a really good OL, and a pretty good stable/rotation of backs. Not a bunch of JAGs, especially if healthy, but yes, in need of some improvement from 2019.    5) Bonus -- Not to make this about JB, but I think the entire offense suffered from inadequate QB play at times last season. Goes back to #2.   But for me, the biggest question mark is the QB. I don't believe JB can be the guy, we need someone better, and I'd prefer to find the guy this franchise can build around for the next decade-plus.
