We get it, you're upset we cut Manning. Quit banging the drum.

it was dirty to cut manning .   i would love it if luck turned out to be better then manning but what me and others were saying is mannings are hard to come by so its best to keep him.    luck would be so much better to learn from manning .  manning would of helped luck a lot

Serious question is Luck hurt he has been off all night. 

No. He’s rattled. Look at his face and his eyes. The pressure from their DL has gotten to him more than any team combined in the last 10 weeks.

I hope you all also realize that Luck is trying to do this with an injured #1 WR and then other WR's that probably wouldn't get picked up if put on waivers. 

Its useless to try and throw facts out there for the stupid troll crowd they are dumb nothing we can do about it

Defense is playing respectable the second half. Too bad the Colts hardly ever play well together on both sides of the ball.

 

Usually, one side has to bail out the other. In this case, the offense has had a historically bad day.

I don't blame the D at all.  They have been on the field a ton due to the O being so weak and have held their own.  KC is going to score.  

 

We just haven't done anything on O.

I noticed it the first few weeks of the season, and then from about game 3 through 12 I thought he threw it great.  Looked really good and I thought he was zinging the ball well.  The only fault I saw was he was not running it when he could have, and that worried be because he either was not playing aggressive or it meant the should was still an issue.

 

And then from about game 13 through todays game, I thought he is not throwing the ball well at all.  Really looks like an average college QB if you ask me.

 

Something is very very wrong.

 

Luck is at his best when he is running, slinging, no huddling.  And he isn't doing it.

 

Would pass something of a logic test..

 

Some time to take rust off, but then has hit the equivalent of the "rookie wall". We can only speculate as to the status of the shoulder. But... shoulder injuries are nasty. You can functionally get the strength back but never quite get back the resiliency.

Dude, let it GO. Manning is long gone, 7 years now. Let it go

I know now is not the time for reasoned debate, so I won't try any - this has been a very frustrating game, they have not been exceptional, it appears all our players have chosen the same day to play poorly. Huge disappointment overall.

It is said you learn more from your defeats than your victories, so lets hope that this is the case tonight so that when we get a chance again like tonight we are able to perform better.

Folks..they have 24 points and they average 35

 

Teams tend to score less when they have comfortable lead.  They have a tendency to go into a "milking the clock" type of offense instead of a "score quickly" type of offense.

Did you see that highlight though how the oline is getting run over.

Over 400 yards per game of total offense allowed is the big one for me.  Very few teams in NFL history have accomplished that.  If Luck weren't injured this game might have gone differently.

 

Yep.. but how much is garbage yards. Similar reasoning as to why they led the league in sacks.

Our oline is  showing how young they are. They are getting hammered.

 

 

There's truth to that...….KC can rush the passer and they jumped ahead so that was al they had to worry about

 

They're okay with us running the ballnow

    • danlhart87 on Colts.com Forums:   "Is there a reason all the Colts castaways go to the Jets? They have around 8 former Colts.   Are the Colts planning on following the recipe they had Sunday on O where Rivers keeps it under 30 attempts?   Do you believe the Colts have a good OL or do you think Q makes them better than they are?   and finally   Do you think the emergence of MAC will effect how we move the ball especially when Doyle comes back?"   Walker: Woah, woah, woah. Firing from all angles here.   » I think the connection to the New York Jets is pretty clear: Rex Hogan, who was the Colts' Vice President of Player Personnel under Chris Ballard in 2017 and 2018, is now the Jets' Assistant General Manager under GM Joe Douglas. When you're Hogan and you already have so much intel and information on these players from your time in Indy, it really cuts down on the background work needed for players from outside organizations.   » I'm not sure I'd put a limit of passing attempts on Philip Rivers at 30 for this game, but that does seem about to be a sweet spot. The Jets have a ton of injuries in their secondary, though, so one would imagine Rivers won't be shy about testing out their depth. Another factor: the Jets' run defense is usually pretty tough under defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, even though they didn't quite show that last week when they allowed 184 rushing yards on 27 carries against the San Francisco 49ers. So I'd expect a few more pass attempts in this one compared to last week.   » The Colts' offensive line is outstanding as a group. Anthony Castonzo is a top-five to top-10 left tackle in the NFL, the aforementioned Quenton Nelson is the best guard in the league, Ryan Kelly is probably a top-five center, Mark Glowinski has been one of the better run-blocking right guards in the league the last couple seasons, and is off to a wonderful start so far this year, and Braden Smith is undoubtedly one of the top young tackles in the game. Nelson gets the pub, and rightfully so, but the rest of the group is very good.   » And I addressed the Mo Alie-Cox/Jack Doyle dynamic above. If Doyle plays, I don't think Mo Alie-Cox gets quite as many looks every game, but he proved he needs more targets in general with the way he played last week.
    • Trying to keep it short.   I'm looking at the situation as allocating blocks of capital in the ensuing years and making sure we have a blocks to invest where we need.  All of those examples you've given are true, but finding players like that involves availability, and the farther you move away from the first round the more you are at the mercy of how the draft falls and of things beyond your control.  In terms of planning, I simply think that if we think of Pittman as #2 (drafted at 41) and Campbell as #3 (drafted lower), then to get a #1 WR will take a higher draft pick.  But it could work out like you say.   We could also draft a LT later to play behind AC, then start after he develops.  And do the same with DE behind Houston.  I'm sure you can find many successful LTs and DEs and #1WRs throughout the NFL that fit that pattern.  But to say that we are going to plan to find guys later in the draft to develop into what would be a 1st round pick quality player is risky, and I think we need more sure things at those positions.    Having said that, I think LT is definitely 1st round capital allocation because he plays every down and tends to be on an island.  Success at the other two positions can be schemed a bit, or their success depends more upon how well other players play. 
    • No he hasn't officially announced yet 
    • I for one, enjoy their videos....   They seem like a sweet couple of kids and seeing their journey through the draft process and NFL life as a young couple has been interesting and a little bit of much needed fun.... especially these days.    I have ZERO problem with it.
    • Is it a done deal that Trevor Lawrence forgoes his senior year and enters the draft?
