Omg people.  Why all the negative comments bout how our offense is playing?.  R u watching the same game I am.  It is a slug fest.  We r not playing bad. It is just a case of a good O going against a great D. Jags D came to play today

Still bad decisions by the coach.  In a slug fest you take points where you can get them.  We're went for it on fourth down twice where we could have had field goals.

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.

The Houston game is making me sick to my stomach to think about.

It's now 3 quarters that the Colts have not scored against the Jaguars. Colts did not score in the second half of their last meeting.

I don't necessarily disagree  with his call on the goal line. I do think the play to Ebron was epically bad.  U don't go outside on this D

Not really it's 0-0. Even if they score here they still aren't. 

More intensity I mean.

Just out of interest.. the Colts were 54.5% on 4th downs and going for it before this game. That's about middle of the league. 

 

Now work out the EV of TD vs FG...

 

That's not to say that this is for every 4th down, there is a defined graph showing the "to go" line as the break point as to when you should go for it against distance to the end zone.

Why r we surprised that their D us out playing our offense? Their D is very athletic  and fast. They have elite player all over the place. Our O  is scheme based and lacks athleticism.  Talent wise, they r way ahead of us and it is showing. We don't really have any players that challenge them

Yep, not as easy when your not playing at home

Colts are surprisingly getting a lot of calls there way.  Hopefully our missed field goal opportunities don't come back to haunt us!

    • Dolphins r in a rebuild.  They will b going after one in the draft.  No sense in drafting a 31 year old qb who mayb 34 when the Dolphins start competing. Now him to the Bears makes sense
    • I loved Campbell.  He was probably the most raw coming out of college.  I think they were looking to the future when they picked him.  Injuries have stunted his growth and  contribution to the team.
    • You've got 2 backs, Mack and Hines, that have actual roles, and Wilkins that I'm not actually sure why he exists and I'm not sure he is either.   Mack and Wilkins have skillsets that are too similar.  You need a RB2 that can give you a different look to keep defenses guessing.  A good stable of backs would have Mack or Wilkins trying to run patiently  and a downhill runner to bum rush the gap and catch the defense napping if they get complacent, and would run some 2 back sets to allow the offense to create a shell game and force the D to hedge.   The fact that we don't seem to be capable of using a 2 back set, means that the skillset of our "stable" of backs is fairly limited, or it means that Reich and the OC are both extremely bankrupt for creativity in how to use running backs in an offense.     So I question your first premise right off the bat, and posit that this lack of diversity and/or creativity in the run game is a big reason the running game disappears against disciplined defenses.       Jack Doyle will be pleased to know he's been upgraded to "a few."  Ebron is inconsistent and Allie-Cox is a decent backup.  Doyle himself is solid but not a world-beater.   It's not a bad group, the whole group rounds up to an above average TE unit, but it's only as significant a part of the offense as it is for us this year more or less by default.   Man I really applaud your effort there.  You really put in a good honest try at making our WR situation not look like a complete disaster.   The original plan required everyone to stay healthy and play at about the 75th percentile of their ability.  If you can't see why that's a bit overoptimistic -- to put it mildly -- then I'm afraid there's nothing more I can do to help you.     We got lucky when Pascal came through.  you put these kinds of odds and ends together in the hope that 1 or 2 of them out of the whole group will stick and become solid contributors.  Expecting a stable of spare parts to play like a well oiled machine is an incredible exercise in magical thinking just this side of believing in Narnia.     Agreed.  The offensive line should be a top offensive line and for the most part it is.         The talent is there to not suck.  If not sucking is all you want to accomplish, then sure, the talent is there.  Not sure the talent is there to be a top team in the AFC.  But hey, if you're in on the not-sucking game, then go nuts, enjoy your 7-9 wins every year.  If not, then Ballard needs to do a better job building out the core of this offense -- fewer spare parts, more core components, and if he can't do it we need a better engineer.
    • This. A defensive stud or WR in the first round is going to improve thijs  team more then some QB.
