Excruciating first half.

 

Hit the reset button.  Forget it.  Start the game over.

This is the D that the experts were expecting of  the Jags to play this year.  The problem is that they decided to come to play today. They r superior to our offence when u look at talent.  We will c if Frank can change things up in the 2nd half.

Let’s face it, our Winning streak is impressive, we have a lot to look forward to next year. But the lack of capable recievers,Ryan Kelly being out,no pass rush and Doyle being out. Not this year sorry guys

We do need some additional weapons for Luck

We do need an interior pass rush

 

This isnt the year.... but, still a half to go

Why are the Colts giving up 3 free points in a low scoring road game vs a desperate team when they were only in position to get them due to a dumb Jags penalty?

 

Jet sweep to big slow (compared to a WR or fast, twitchy athletic RB) TE off the weaker side of the line? Why? 

 

Colts should be up 3-0 at half. Not the other way around. 

 

I'm just being truthful when I say that the Colts look weak today and are being physically out-played. Get it together. Don't gift wrap games to teams being QB'd by Cody Kessler.

 

Let's go Colts!!!

Deep breaths.

 

As sloppy as that 1st half was, we're only down 3.

 

We got this.

 

:clover::colts::clover:

 

Sloppy is a very good word. Questionable decisions by Luck in part, some bad play calling IMO, and the O line getting a bit of a back to reality lesson. 

 

Wow.. 26 pass attempts already.

Reich's worst play calling since early in the season.

 

Worst O-line play in months.

 

Eberflus - thanks for the 3rd down 10 yard cushion on the Moncrief crosser that ended up giving them 3.

Not at all... I never said that. I said it's a different game and will continue to evolve. Defense very much still has a place to play. But I don't think you'll be seeing the shut down D of yesteryear. This is a low scoring game because both teams can't execute on O. It's ugly. 

 

Are you disputing teams are playing much more aggressively on O this year? 


Nah , you did. I specifically told you " you can still play defense in this league."

You were beating the drum of the "new NFL" , like so many are doing this year. 

When the Jags feel like it , they are an elite defense- they still exist. They've completely shut down everything we've tried to do , and dominated at the LOS. The Colts didn't all of a sudden forget how to execute , they're just getting their butts kicked by superior talent. No one can get open and our line can't get any push.

A coach should adjust to each game and each circumstance. He shouldn't say , "oh, it's the new NFL , better go for it!"

That's ridiculous. Take the points.

Why do people say we r playing bad? I see a very close and hard hitting game.  Our O is going up against a super D.  

 

People forget that Jags pass D has been still very good this year, their O has lost them a lot, I mean a lot of games.

I Know everyone wants to believe our o-line is fix but it's not. They have really improved and I like that but we need a right Tackle early in the draft maybe not first round but a starter.  We need to build an o-line that can bully consistently.

I don’t think luck has looked really great since that game he was a receiver and got nailed. Look at his int. He’s thrown like 3 since then and only threw one or two in the 5 games before that. I’m 75-% sure he’s ok but I just wanted to state that to me he looks different. It could be because he’s been getting more pressure.

Ya know, cornerback and receiver are important positions we need to address next year. But we really need two interior DL bad. Hunt is to inconsistent, and easily gets stood up by opposing OL, that’s cause how tall he is. But ya I doubt al woods,hunt and ridgeway are back next year. Grover Stewart also

Stewart is more like a NT in a 3-4.

Interesting everybody is questioning the 4th down calls but most of you had no problem with him giving a win to the Texans. 

Playoff implications at the time weren't in sight AND we were at home.  Wasn't our offense hot at that point? It wasn't hot today during those calls.

He is getting more pressure cause Kelly is out.

Should have been 6-3 Colts.

 

Frank Reich needs to realize that's it's okay to take FGs in these sort or games vs great defenses.

 

Yes. There is a time to be risky and gamble and there is a time to be smart and take 3 points in a road game vs a divisional rival who is desperate to win a game. I'm still scratching my head. I don't want Pagano back but I want Reich to stop being a gambler when there is no need for it in a scoreless, defensive game.

Have you people learned anything from last week? It's not over till it's over, especially with Luck on our side. The Jags O will continue to sputter, and we will get the kinks out at half on O. We will win this game! R-E-L-A-X

The defense might have to win this.  Force a turnover, score on defense.

I don't disagree you can still play D, I just think it will be in a different style. I also should show more caution as we do know it's a game of evolution on both sides of the ball. Read option dominated for a season then... well yeah. 

 

I'm not sure why this has personally offended you so much. But it really is a different NFL.. mostly because of the rule changes, but I do think teams are more aware of the risk/reward on 4th down.  Go look at how many teams are going for it, go look at the success rates, go look at the increase in EV. That's not opinion, that's cold hard fact. 

 

HOWEVER... I will say yes, you should adjust to each game and circumstance and you'll never have a good enough sample size specific say to the Jags D. But man.. if we can't punch it in from 2 yards out, that's a bigger issue than the decision to go for it.

You mean game flow should still be consider when trying to decide if and when to go for it? That’s ridiculous!!

 

Darn, now I’m dumb and want Pagano back

We may end up winning this game, but it's now been 4 straight quarters against the Jags without a score.

    • @Coffeedrinker you said you've watched Cleveland play. First a disclaimer on my part - I haven't watched him, what I'm saying is strictly based on what I've heard - have you noticed him lacking competitive drive and desire to fight? Just listened to Greg Cosell interview and he said he avoids casting such aspersions on players because it is very damning for a player, but he felt it was especially obvious in Cleveland's film that he was lacking competitiveness and didn't seem like he cared much on the field. Did you see this in his film?
    • Of the six corners I've mentioned, they've atleast played meaningful mins. We have a bunch of olinemen I've never even heard of. I'd rather protect our line. Our secondary is fine for now. We atleast have depth there, can't say the same about our oline
    • Here’s one more..,,   NFL.com is out with a new updated Power Ranking...,   Free Agency started the Colts tanked 20th...   Indy is now ranked 13th...  an impressive jump of 7 spots.   And the draft is where Ballard will do his best work.    Nice.....   
    • Moore is arguably the only tested CB vet we have. Rock was thrown to the wolves last year and did great as a rookie. Is he ready to be CB1? The rest have huge question marks. If numbers are everything, yes we have 8 CBs for 3 slots, but we also have 13 OL for 5. Taylor isn't on the roster. As far as OL is concerned, we have 100% of our starters. CB we have 66% of starters. You suggest taking a C early for depth in case of Kelly leaving, but Rhodes is only a 1 year contract so what about him leaving?   Of the 6 CBs we have in addition to Rock and Moore:   Huge questions Rhodes - huge drop off an injury concerns the last 2 years   Unproven Tell - huge project/conversion from S, that only had substantial snaps in 4 games due to injury Wilson - hardly played after the fist 6 games in which he played sparingly.    JAGS Nelson - UDFA practice squad rook that we picked up after Jax cut him. Pitts - UDFA guy that has been waived by 3 teams before we picked him up. Porter - UDFA PS guy we picked up after cut by 2 teams
    • I know Kmet would be great, but he will be gone early I believe. This kid is big, athletic, and would be a great target for Rivers. A lot of analysts rank him in the top 4-5 TE available. Check him out....
