Not sure if its a good thing that our offense relies solely on TY but i get it

It’s definitely not a good thing.  But he is all they really have at receiver.  No one else can catch it seems. Lol. No one else can stretch the defense or make the defense have to worry about where he is at all times.  Ballard has a lot of work to do as our cupboard is still pretty bare at the skill positions. Time to come off some of that cap money and bring in some playmakers.  Enough with the bargain bin thrift shopping.

Still a winnable game, but we are a one dimensional offense and everyone knows it. You can blame the Oline, but can't convince me that a RB such as Bell would suck as bad as our RBs.

Most depressing half of football this season.  

 

Ballard and Reich - honeymoon nearly over.

Maybe we are a bad team? Not having TY really hurts I will say that. Both of Luck's INT's weren't even his fault. WR's can't catch the ball and our Defense is back to being bad compared to weeks 2 and 3. Down 23-13 at Half, time to step and make some plays or the season is toast.

i guess its not that surprising when you consider our wide receivers are all undrafted free agents except for grant, who was a 5th.  the running backs have been bad too

The Colts have discovered a cure for the common cold, no one can catch anything!

Doyle is a big big miss too, don’t underestimate his run blocking.

I think we'll be lucky to win a few more games the rest of the season.

The only win I can maybe see is buffalo. That's it... So sad.

Luck has been getting little help.  I won’t put the first one on him.  The second one he has some blame as it was a pretty dangerous throw near three white shirts. Still Grant should have been able to secure that catch.

I hope we don't give up on Mack...he is not a power runner, get him the ball in the open field and the guy can make some big plays for us. He dropped the screen pass, I get it, but come back to that and he can punish the Jets!

Not trying to argue... But mack is made of glass. I don't see him staying on the roster long considering his current trajectory. I really thought he showed promise last year... The situation reminds me of the ex Colts running back Vick Ballard.

I figured this would be a long season because of all the young guys. It's like an NBA team who wants to tank the season by just throwing out their young talent and seeing which ones show enough to stick around.

 

However, I thought with Luck back there was no way we would win less than 6 games. I saw 6-7 wins. I may have to take that back if we can't beat a team like the Jets.

I’m sorry but I’m at a point where I just want to see Wilkins out there. Mack has been trash

Ballard sat on that wallet . Whether that was the way to go is a matter of opinion I guess .  But this is what you get .

We don’t really have a good running back on the entire roster.  None of these guys are special.  They are all back up type runners. Still need to find that franchise back in my opinion.

LOL yes it was.  with that uncompetitive Colts squad last year, watching it snow was definitely much more entertaining than watching them play.

Know things are rough when even you are posting uncertainty. I hear you man. This is tough to watch. Dropped passes, bad play design (or execution), and soft coverage. Add in injuries and you got yourself a mess. If we don’t win this game then season will for sure be lost.

Haha u r right.  I am really trying to b an optimist and I said these next 3 games against teams on our level would tell us a lot. Wat is telling me so far is that this team is Andrew Luck.  We have  little to no talent and I believe we r being out coached. Seems like we r regressing

I think the playcalling has been a little lackluster, but I think youth and talent play a part also.

Maybe Irsay can leave the LOS roof open and we can hope for a snow game re-do in Indy.  Not sure exactly when we play them though. Might still be too warm.

Yeah this doesn't look good. It pains me to say that the Posters I called negative may be right.

    • Our OL... just to qualify things, we were tied with NE in 2018 (1.2 sacks/game) for 1st (least sacks given up), and were tied for 8th/9th (2.0 sacks/game) last season switching to Brissett. Our OL was far more consistent in 2019, and wasn't musical chairs the first third of the season like it was in 2018.    Biggest thing is that Rivers was 5th best in time to throw (lowest) in 2019, while Brissett is 2nd worst (longest). Luck was also 9th best in 2018, while Rivers was 8th.   I expect that Rivers might not be top 5 anymore given he'll have a lot more time with our OL, but at the same time, he won't take forever every snap like Brissett did. I still see him top 10, taking a bit more time, but cleaner in the pocket similar to 2018.   I think we'll see our OL rate even better on passing downs and will not have to expend as much energy. They should look better on running downs as well given teams will not have to defend us different, and likely use more package/situational defense on both running and passing downs.   Prediction - 22, or 1.375/game at worst (we gave up 32 last year, 18 in 2018)   On DL. LDE is still a wild card. For the sake of prediction, I'm going to assume Autry is playing DE on running downs (Houston/Stewart/Buckner/Autry), and Turay is playing passing downs (Houston/Autry/Buckner/Turay). That's a pretty decent front 4 vs the pass as long as Turay retruns to form and is near his passing down ratings from early last year.   Last year, we were middle of the pack at 41 sacks even without Turay most of the year, and with Sheard playing poorly....    Prediction - 50. The best thing though is that our pressure % will improve much more than just the sack #.
    • Like I said, those were not my words but Bill Walsh's
    • Bob Sanders. He pretty much pushed us to our first championship in 37 years. What an awesome player.
    • Other than TDN, are there any other mock draft sims you like?
