WR that can’t catch a ball...seems like same ok crap as last year. 

That last play was crap I will give you that. That is the type of stuff I would even complain about, Grant shouldve caught it. Wouldve been a 1st down.

Because I don’t like being in the shotgun in the end zone.   I don’t like passing from our own two.    I’d prefer Luck under center turning and handing off.    Or, if you’re going to pass,  then under center and play action.

 

I didn’t like previous play either.   Zero backfield, shotgun in the end zone.   Awful call.   Incomplete to Hines, but I HATED that call too.

 


The worst part was that they were setting up a screen on the botched snap. We've run a screen twice from our own 1-2 yard line this season and both times it almost ended up as a safety.

I agree, I hate the shotgun formation in the endzone as well. Too dangerous

Do the colts and irsay own the Luke or does the city?

City. But I think the Colts decide whether to open the roof or windoa.

Ever since the Bengals game I’ve been trying to find the excitement I had for our offense that day. 

 

I am sick of the misdirection and sweeps in the backfield. That’s 9 vs. 11 football. 

Who is there to get excited about? This team is bargain basement of talent on Offense and it shows

this game is concerning

 

 But...but...but....we just went toe to toe with the defending Super Bowl champs and almost won.  I thought we were a good team? (Sarcasm)

 

Last week was the initial sign for concern actually.

With the way they've been covering our short passes I think Luck should've tried for that on the feet. Oh well.

 

Agreed looking at that replay, but how much has he been told not to run I wonder?

    • Real NBA pundits, coaches and execs were parroting "Jump shooting teams cannot win in the NBA" and "You need low post presence to win" just like... 5-10 years ago. Data and analysis about the value of the 3 has been available for close to 20 years. You underestimate just how married people are to their old ways and how hard it is to teach the old dog new tricks, especially when this is all they've known for their whole lives and now you are telling them what they've been taught for 20-30-50 years is wrong. Some will adapt and flourish, most won't...    My favorite quote that encapsulates perfectly the situation comes from a field that is MUCH more open to new ideas than football - science. And even there, there is a long history of resistance to new ideas. Physicist Max Planck once said "Science advances one funeral at a time". What he meant was that science doesn't advance by convincing the old guard that the new ideas are correct, but by the old timers just dying out and the new generation unburdened by emotional attachments to the old stuff being allowed to just follow where the evidence points to.    BTW I do NOT think the run game is meaningless or that it doesn't have a role to play in today's game. It is extremely important in situational football, in end of game situations, in goalline and 3d and 4th and short situations, etc. I just do not think it serves anyone any good perpetuating myths about its importance for things that have been repeatedly shown to not correlate to run-game success.     
    • For those that wanted Suh, hes off the board.   https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/05/21/ndamukong-suh-expected-to-sign-with-buccaneers/
    • The problem is the secondary is really hard to watch from the angles we are getting on TV and the fans general population doesn't dissect in detail what's happening ... they just see the big plays - the interceptions, the big pass-breakups, or a big missed tackle etc... they don't see when the QB doesn't even throw the ball because of perfect coverage or threat of playmaking by players like Hooker. The real insane stat here is 1 reception per 130 snaps... that's like ... once every 2.5 games or thereabout... there is a value to what Hooker provides both as a playmaker and as a deterrent for opposing QB's even thinking about throwing deep. 
    • My gripe with Stitches view is these coaches have access to this same data that you're quoting. They have all kinds of stat men in the building with them.  I don't think they are oblivious to any of this stuff.  Then you've got actual football coaches in this forum like Coffedrinker and Princeton Tiger and very few of them really down play the importance of running the football and what it does for your passing game.  I just can't buy that all of them are just merely being stubborn and ignoring the data for age long myths.  I think there's a better reason why coaches still keep that mantra.
    • he got off to a slow start last year, but everyone had to notice his interception on eli and his solid play overall by the end of the year   fans just go by what they see, and that can change a lot week to week.
