Not at all, the numbers are pretty solid and EW% and EVA. Stop basing reactions off outcomes. You can't think like that as a HC. 

 

The play call was bad though. 

I was calling it dumb before the outcome.  And I disagree with your flawed stats. Prove that the Colts succeed on those gambles enough.  League wide numbers are NOT Colts numbers.   Plus look at how disjointed the Colts are looking. You gotta take the points.

What evidence is there that the Colts score on 4th and goal enough to out weigh taking the easy 3?  Colts rarely seem to succeed on those sort of gambles.  Take the 3 and accumulate points. 

 

Kudos to the defense ended for holding up and forcing the 3 and out. 

 

We've been one of the better teams in those situations so not sure why you say that. 

 

The evidence, is people looking at a huge sample of plays, working out the EVA for those plays, then how it affects win % and there's shed loads of analytics articles there with solid math.

I love Reich's aggressive approach, maybe some of you want passive Pagano back lmao 

 

No no no lol but it’s about the feel of the game. Take the points. Get some momentum.

How can they be flawed when I have presented no stats? Do you get how teams use analytics? 

 

When I'm not so busy keeping an eye on this, hit me up with a PM because I would be interested in the Colts specific.

The Jags cornerbacks are playing awesome today. Gotta admit. Their defense as a whole is playing lights out. 

 

Not kicking for the 3 twice in a row now is going to cause us to lose this game to be honest.

Ok.. no it's not a guarantee. Neither is kicking the 3 BUT in the long-term you will win more games going for it in that situation. That's not opinion, that's math.

I’m not talking about math, or other games. I’m talking about this game and the way it’s going. 

 

They wouldnt of of been in FG range if not for Jax d. They wouldn’t of been at the goal line if not for Jax d. You have to consider how the game is going. I’m usually a big fan of being aggressive....in this game, at that point you kick  the FG.

I think this is a great games for the Colts.  They r playing an incredible D today.  If they win it is a good lesson. They have 2 good D's coming up in Houston and Dallas.

    • I don’t care if this team had Tyreek Hill and Deandre Hopkins, Brissett would still stand in the pocket for five seconds and then dump it off to Doyle in the flat. The guy is not the answer, and a bunch of cherry picked stats about his ‘efficiency’ is not going to change that. 
    • He was signed off the street by the Niners. But he was a "non-vested" player, which means he doesn't have enough years of service to reach unrestricted free agency. So whatever team he's on would have his exclusive rights for 2020 and 2021, whether he was claimed on waivers or signed as a free agent. Then he can be a restricted free agent in 2022.   His contract technically expires at the end of the 2019 league year, but the Colts can tender him and effectively extend his rookie contract, one year at a time, until 2023. (And at that point, they could franchise tag him, assuming that provision still exists in the new CBA.)   As a UDFA, the CBA allows him to be signed to a veteran extension after two years of service; for drafted players, it's three years. Until then, his contract is based on the rookie wage scale, which was determined by the CBA.   A recent case study for this is Kenny Moore. He signed with the Patriots as a UDFA in 2017, then was waived at cut down, and the Colts claimed him. After 2018, he had two years of service, so he was eligible to sign a veteran extension, which is what he did in the 2019 offseason. If he had not agreed to an extension, the Colts could have tendered him as an ERFA for 2019, and then as an RFA for 2020.
    • IF Ballard and Reich still think JB is the answer at this point, then we need to start thinking about who is running what at Colt world HQs.
    • Everything he wrote then, is still true today.   You simply are not going to win a SB with JB as a long term answer.
