The oline played like crap and give KC credit. They covered our receivers well. We need to upgrade the receivers.

Agreed.

 

But that still doesn't explain why he's had so many bad throws. Throws that land in the ground right in front of the receiver. 

 

I worked at Stanford when Luck was our QB here. I've watched him go from my place of work to join my favorite team. I am a huge fan and huge supporter, but he simply played horribly today. Horribly. He was easily outplayed by Mahomes today, who didn't look phased by the big stage.

Colts with a bye and HFA next year. Lock in it. 

Home field and  a bye means a lot.

I would not be shocked if all 4 home teams win this weekend

bad job by basically everyone, but the D did show a little heart, so yay? 

 

I'm kind of blown away that that all came down to Luck simply being awful today.

I'm just saying its *ic.  All it does it getting you banned, escorted out and possibly arrested.

Yep, that pretty much sums up the game.

It really felt to me like coach Pagano was out there coaching this game. Our coach laid an egg on play calling this game imo

Luck for sure didn’t play well. WRs not getting separation didn’t help. Some timely calls in favor of KC on top of it all made it too high to climb. This team played above their means for so long it was bound to end.

Fountain may have answered the question of why it took so long for him to be on the active roster.

Luck is a qb like manning, can't show up in the playoffs. He's not what he was.

It's pretty clear that Ballard has to focus 90% of his efforts on a WR core and pass rush.  Great to know the direction they need to go.  

Absolutely. A dominant 3tech and/or DE would do wonders. Hopefully Turay and Lewis improve over the offseason and can be big for us next season. I wouldn't be against drafting another of either if they're BPA..

Colts OL got served a nice hot dish of "shut up and GIT GUD."

Yeah...we are a good run blocking line but we are not THAT good a pass blocking line

 

..and I don't know why Andrew had 4 passes tipped...That should not happen.

I hope he's okay

 

Last 6 quarters he did not look good

That was a difficult pass to drop..and he will never be that open again the rest of his career

I think he's been okay in the pevious playoff games, but absolutely horrible today. Just never had the feeling that he could mount a comeback today. He was more of the problem than the solution.

Could be ice. Could be lots of things surrounded by snow.

 

You see, snow has the ability to surround items and take many shapes and forms

I can’t disagree. This was a game where we never adjusted a thing and nothing we did worked and nobody stepped up. This was probably the worst game we’ve played all year. The Jags game will be second because at least the defense played as well as could be asked.

 

inwould t bring Vinny back, I wouldn’t extend Ebron yet, I’d extend Kenny Moore before he gets on the bus. We better use all the cap space this year. I’m extremely disappointed in this game,  wry encourages for the years to come if we buy in.

Nasty end for a miraculous season. Starting 1-5 and still making the playoffs is great...

 

Somehow everything collapsed tonight...our trustworthy parts malfunctioned: Luck, Vinny, O-line, D...

 

This game leaves bad taste in my mouth, and not for the L.

 

See ya' Colts fans!

       I may have not given enough weight to one stat: KC led the NFL in sacks..

They gave up 14 points a game at home.  30 or so on the road.

I guess I have to give them credit...

On the scouting report, clearly they thought they could get hands on those short passes

He always get passes tipped.  I feel like he could use his legs much more.  This year, understandably Luck didn't use his legs as near as much as I thought he could.  He needs to do this much more in opportune situations which happen all the time.  

 

I understand Luck is coming off an injury, but he ran for significantly less this year than in previous years.  He had 0 rushing touchdowns. I don't know if it was the injury or the coaching staff, but this is not something the Colts fan afford to do with such an athletic QB.  

 

I really hope this changes next year and the coaching staff is not discourging him from running the ball.  Contrary to what many might think and his injuries, Luck is an athletic QB.  He has to utilize his legs, when it matters.  Like Mahomes of course.  I honestly think he's somewhat similar on an athletic spectrum.

But there's no real-world explaination for that, is there....

 

Same players..that gap is probably just a coincidence..

WE missed Doyle and Hooker today, didn't we?

But they had injuries, too.

 

 

 

IN conclusion...

I'm glad KC is not in our division..

 

.and there are 2 kinds of teams: Those that make the playoffs and those who do not. We were a playoff team. IT wasn't a bad year at all.

I've been thinking that with all of these comments about our OL. Their pass rush is legit and I think some of their changes at CB have been big for them. Took the 2 over the hill CB's out for a pair of young guys that started looking solid the past few KC games.

 

That's why I hate hearing season long stats. Week 1 I irrelevant at this point. How have they been over the last 4 or 5 games?

    • "Obsession to finish." That is Frank Reich's motto,  right?* did you like how I through that "right" in there just like Frank, lol.    There's good traits about Nelson. One mentioned by superman above, is that he picks his teammates up almost obsessively. But the only trait that I care about with Nelson, and certainly the rest of the o-line and team for that matter, is that they have an obsession to finish. Nelson has it. He's obviously buying into the organization and what they stand for, and what the coaching staff brings to the table. If he continues having an obsession to finish, specifically with his ability to finish, he is going to dominate this league for many years to come. 
    • I didnt think they would. It would just continue to draw out the saga. NFL really needs too restructure the tag, it can be incredibly unfair
    • 1. Arizona: Nick Bosa DE Ohio State Cardinals grab the best player in the draft. Unless they decide to move on from Rosen, Bosa will be the pick at number one. Pairing him up with Chandler Jones creates a dynamic pass rushing duo. 2. San Francisco: Josh Allen OLB Kentucky Their OLBs are highlighted by Dekoda Watson, Brock Coyle, and Malcolm Smith. Allen is an EDGE player that the 49ers are in desperate need of. Allen is the defensive playmaker they need after an underwhelming performance from Solomon Thomas and with Reuben Foster gone. 3. NY Jets: Quinnen Williams DE Alabama MikeKirsch's comments:The only notable DL under contract for the Jets is Leonard Williams. Adding a second Williams is the best move for the Jets at 3. 4. Oakland: Rashan Gary DE Michigan The Raiders need a better pass rush. If they had a player like Kahlil Mack last year their pass rush would have been better. The Raiders ranked dead last with 13 sacks last year. The Giants, 31st in sacks, had 30. To put that into comparison further, Mack had 12.5 sacks. Gary has the physical tools to play inside or on the edge. 5. Tampa Bay: Jonah Williams OT Alabama With the continued emphasis on the high passing attack with Arians, a solid pass protector will be needed on a regular basis. Williams can play both G and T. 6. NY Giants: Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State The Giants need to address QB sooner than later. Manning is not getting younger and he is not getting better. Manning is still serviceable and Haskins can sit a year under Manning. 7. Jacksonville: Cody Ford OG Oklahoma Jacksonville gave up the 3rd most sacks in the NFL with 53. I'm making this selection under the impression that the Jags acquire Nick Foles. Ford can play both T or G and improve this O-line.  8. Detroit: Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson EDGE and TE are the most pressing needs for Detroit. I expect them to go EDGE here as Ansah is probably gone after an underwhelming season under the franchise tag. 9. Buffalo: Ed Oliver DT Houston With Kyle Williams retiring and Lotuleilei having an average season and will be 30 when the season is over, Bills need to grab a young, promising DT. Once viewed as a potential number one pick in this draft, Oliver is still a very solid player that should be picked in the top 10.  10. Denver: Greedy Williams CB LSU Chris Harris Jr turns 30 in June and Bradley Roby is a free agent. Even if Roby is brought back, Williams would still be a good move for the Broncos to solidify the secondary. A QB is possible here, but I don't expect them to go QB until next year since Flacco still has 2 years on his contract. 11. Cincinnati: Drew Lock QB Missouri Might be a slightly surprising pick here, but I think it's time for the Bengals to start fresh with a new QB. Dalton just hasn't gotten it done for them for the past 8 years. With Dalton turning 32 in October and with 4 winless postseason appearances, new HC Zac Taylor gets a new QB to work with after working with Jared Goff. 12. Green Bay: Jachai Polite DE Florida GB needs to strengthen their pass rush. Polite has explosive pass rush skills with great speed. Clay Matthews is in a decline and it's time to find his replacement. 13. Miami: Kyler Murray QB Oklahoma Tannehill has been average for the majority of his career, along with injuries. Miami will look to start fresh at QB with the Heisman winner. I don't think Murray will have any major struggles with his size.  14. Atlanta: Christian Wilkins DT Clemson Even if Grady Jarrett comes back, Wilkins is a solid pick to pair him up with Jarrett. Wilkins was a consistent 4 year starter at Clemson and can become another young defensive force for ATL like Jarrett, Jones, McKinley, and Neal. 15. Washington: Daniel Jones QB Duke Alex Smith may never play another down in the NFL. Some said this about Luck, but Smith's injury is far more severe and turns 35 in May. Jones had a great Senior Bowl by winning MVP and should be able to take over the Washington offense. 16. Carolina: Montez Sweat DE Mississippi State Had off the field issues in 2016 when he was dismissed from Michigan State, but had a great senior bowl week and had solid interviews. Carolina needs to replace the future HOF Peppers. Sweat is a good add for the EDGE. 17. Cleveland: Devin White ILB LSU Cleveland's offense had a very good year with Mayfield leading the way. However, their defense was not very good. Browns need to add a defensive playmaker like they did last year with Denzel Ward. White is a 3 down LB that makes this defense better. 18. Minnesota: Greg Little OT Mississippi The Vikings need a solid T to give their $83 million QB a better opportunity. Little is an upgrade to their offensive line.  19. Tennessee: D.K. Metcalf WR Mississippi Titans need another WR opposite Corey Davis for Mariota. Metcalf has incredible size for a WR and is a big play threat. 20. Pittsburgh: Mack Wilson ILB Alabama Steelers need to add an ILB to fill the void of Shazier. Wilson will be a good player alongside Vince Williams. 21. Seattle: Byron Murphy CB Washington Seattle adds another CB to their duo of Flowers and Griffin. Murphy is an aggressive CB with good ball skills that will fit in the slot in the Seattle secondary. 22. Baltimore: Marquise Brown WR Oklahoma Ravens need to add a WR for Lamar Jackson to throw to. Crabtree didn't live up to his 3 year/$21 Million contract. John Brown and Willie Snead had decent numbers but can be upgraded. Brown has elite speed and is a dynamic deep threat. 23. Houston: Jawaan Taylor OT Florida Texans gave up the most sacks in the NFL with 62. They are in desperate need of solid pass protectors and Taylor will help bring those sacks allowed down. 24. Oakland: N’Keal Harry WR Arizona State Gruden replaces Amari Cooper with N'Keal Harry. Gruden gets a big WR (6'3" 216 lb) that has great hands combined with elite acceleration and breakaway speed. 25. Philadelphia: Dexter Lawrence DT Clemson Eagles could use a CB as well, but DT is a more pressing need that Lawrence meets. 26. Indianapolis: Dre’Mont Jones DT Ohio State DL is a big need for the Colts. Jones has rare athletic skills such as range and flexibility. Very good pass rush skills. Run defense needs improvement but is a great athletic DT that can rush the QB. 27. Oakland: Josh Jacobs RB Alabama Gruden gets his second offensive toy with Jacobs. Lynch turns 33 and will be a free agent. With Chris Warren III and DeAndre Washington as the only RBs under contract for now, Jacobs is a solid piece to revamp the Raider's rushing attack. 28. LA Chargers: Devin Bush Jr. ILB Michigan DL is also a need, but the Chargers could use more quality LBs. Nwoso had a good finish to the end of the year, but more talent is needed at the position. Bush is on the smaller side at 5'11" 230 lb, but has three down LB skills that are comparable to Devin White. 29. Kansas City: Deandre Baker CB Georgia The Chiefs 31st ranked pass defense needs a solid CB. Baker can come in and be a solid rookie starter for KC. 30. Green Bay: T.J. Hockenson TE Iowa The Jimmy Graham $30 Million experiment is not looking to favorably now for GB, and it's time to give Rodgers a solid, young TE. 31. LA Rams: Jaylon Ferguson DE Louisiana Tech Pairing up Ferguson on the D line with Donald is a great move for the Rams. The FBS all-time sack leader (45 sacks) joins the 2-time DPOY that is coming off a 20.5 sack season. 32. New England: Noah Fant TE Iowa While it's possible that Gronkowski comes back for another season, NE has to look towards the future and draft the successor to the often-injured Gronkowski.
