Colts @ Jaguars Game Day Thread

Two ways of looking at Reich's aggression , really:
 

1) The Jags offense sucks so he can get away with it

2) The Jags defense is playing lights out , and the Jags offense sucks , so why not just take points and not give them any momentum 

I lean towards # 2 , but I understand #1.

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

 

Thankfully this is a D-line deep draft.

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

Or stop saying that to me every week?

It's a 3-0 game.

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...

And what are the stats when they are 4th and goal from the 2 or less?  I will bet that historically it is a LOT lower success rate than you are holding out there. Plus your analytics ignore game situation.  You cannot sell me on giving up those early game situation points.  And call me results oriented if you want, but results matter!  And a single game situation does NOT present enough offsetting opportunities for the law of averages to kick in. You disagree philosophically, but I am not sold on blind analytics carrying the day over situational wisdom.

Jags are smoking us 3-0, fire Reich now for being aggressive and bring back passive Pagano :sarcasm:

 

Lol. Stop trolling your fellow Colts fans. :P I too like the aggressive approach. But now they need to score points whichever way they can.

Hoping for good adjustments at halftime, and a solid 2nd half performance. I feel like we should either be winning by 3 scores with the way defense is playing, or losing by 3 scores with the way the offense is performing.

Be aggressive when your team shows they can move the ball against their front 7, that’s all I’m saying.

 

 

no turnovers here plz

Now see you have a point about the psychological factor. But I ain't pulling the numbers out of thin air. It's a matter of record? 

 

Previous to this game we were 100% on the only play that meets the criteria you set out above.

You gave me a similar comment about how defense has become superfluous a couple weeks ago.

Excuse yourself.

At this point. Just take the knee and go to the locker room. 

 

Start over. Do something else next half.

To be clear too.. there's a difference between supporting the decision to go for it and saying they were good play calls. 

 

I've not liked the play calling so far this game, they're blitzing, they're aggressive. What happened to the dink, dunk and slice we were very good with.

recievers can’t get any separation at all :/ come on guys

Our receivers have to be schemed open otherwise they get no separation outside of Hilton. We really need a number 2 WR

No points in the first half. 4 quarters without scoring on this defense. But nah, it was a good call to give up the points.

Working on 4 quarters now with no points on this D. Only thing moving the chains were penalties. That's why you take three points.

 

They are dominating us up front.

Nah, I’m good. 

 

People are are complying because the colts offense looks like crap and gave up three points. You act like a child and say the same lame old lines about fire Reich and bring back Pags. 

 

It it was a bad decision that could possibly cost the Colts the game and their season. Let’s wait and see how it plays out. 

I only made that comment twice (joking) because people are complaining about Reich's play calling, last year alot of people were complaining because Pagano would never go for it. We are only down 3-0 at Half, so like you said lets see how it plays out.

I literally hate zone. Let them catch ball, get first down and come up and tackle....

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?

We need to go back to what was working earlier this year. Why all of the sudden are we back to the Arians Air Coryell stuff again?

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.

"Playoffs?...Playoffs?

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
