Colts @ Raiders Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Coaches need to kick some butt on the sidelines and get these guys back into the game.  We're not in the bye week just yet!

What happened to the Colts that started the game?

 

The Colts for this week got caught in traffic and were running late, so the Colts from last week filled in for the first couple drives.

Don't know who they were, but two guys on the DLine did a stunt and took each other out of the play.  Just looking real bad right now.

The Raiders are a bad football team. I understand the confidence.

 

The offense should be having their way

We're making this look too easy for the raiders :(  We need to get ourselves back in the game.

I would think both sides of the ball are letting us down right now. I realize we had a 10 nothing lead but how fast that went away but if we can't our foot on the pedal it wouldn't be like this sometimes the play-calling on offense really bugs me

When this season started I expected this D to start off very slow and get better as the season went a long.  What's concerning is that the opposite is happening . I know we lack talent but I am not really seeing progress.  Good QBs are carving us up.  I was never a fan of this style of D.

Have they called any penalties on Oakland? I m ow we’ve earned some of these but I find it hard to believe Oakland has been that disciplined

Why is it that when we get in 2 and 2 or 3 and 2  we pass?

I like Passing on 2nd down, keep D off balance

    • Could be Aaron Rodgers... Let's try an "A"
    • I mean... we were 7-9. I get that we have high expectations, but sometimes you see teams have to be bottom feeders for several years before they can start sniffing sustained success (see: the 49ers). If we imagine that we'd lost Luck at the start of the Ballard era I imagine we'd be looking at our team in a much different light. We probably would not have reached the playoffs any of those years.    Ballard inherited a bad, aging roster from Grigson and I felt right away this would be a 3 year project minimum before we were competitive. Well it only took two years and going into that year 3 we looked so promising. Then BAM Luck retires.    Luck's impact on this team is enough that it certainly changes our team's outlook when he's gone. A 3 year rebuild turns into what? 5? And honestly? That's where I think we are. We were a few missed kicks, late interceptions away from the post season this year already. With the cap we have, and the draft stock we carry, as long as we can improve our QB situation, the rest of our roster is primed to continue to grow for a couple more years before we really have to start worrying about cap.    So with that said... please don't retire Anthony Constonso!  My heart may not be able to handle the setback.
    • For me the main thing I can't get over with Fromm is not the arm strength althought I think you can see it in certain situations. The main things I dislike and I think will limit him in the league are: -pocket presence - it's the worst from anybody in this class. It's horrible. He is statuesque in the pocket and has no feel or vision or ability to even try to avoid rusher unless it's the most obvious of situations, he doesn't step into the pocket, he doesn't sidestep rusher...he would just stay in there and try to deliver the ball from the platform he's initially dropped to.  -inability to playmake - this ties into the pocket presence and armstrenght weaknesses too. Very little ability to make plays out of structure. If the pocket breaks, he's usually done, doesn't escape collapsing pockets and if it's one of the obvious cases where he actually sees it he doesn't have the armstrenght to make plays on the run and off platform.   I love a lot of the other things about him(leadership, accuracy on short to intermediate throws, anticipation, reading the field, smarts and command of the offense at the LOS, adjustments), but in today's NFL when defensive linemen have such athletic freaks and OLines are struggling to protect the QBs, IMO having the ability to navigate the pocket when it's workable or to leave it and make plays out of it when it's collapsing is very important. My worry is that those are fatal weaknesses that will manifest themselves in him not being able to show off his best attributes simply because in the NFL nobody is working with prestine pockets.
    • Everyone calm down. Wouldn't it be more natural if he retired at half time of preseason week 3?
    • Just because Luck didn't have the arm of Matthew Stafford,  doesn't mean he didn't have well above average arm strength.        His arm strength is as good as Tom Brady, as Aaron Rodgers,  as Drew Brees and on and on....   Just because you strength isn't elite,  doesn't mean it isn't good enough....
