Reich : The Chiefs outcoached and outplayed us .

Recommended Posts

Reich went away from the run early and they stopped Luck over and over. Never got going on offense. Whenever we become one-dimensional, we lose. In the 4th quarter, we run the ball with Mack and Hines and score a td. Needed to do that earlier.

Ebron's drop set the scene for the game.   Feel the coaches panicked a bit early game.   Our run game has been a corner stone of this offense the past months, and we should've stuck with that today

Yes. A lot of delusional folks here talk about the refs. Lets not get carried away with the refs here, the Colts beat the Colts.

 

Ebron dropped an open third down catch to force a 3 & out on the first drive of the game.

 

Conservative play calling the entire game, not going for it on 4th and short on two seperate occasions down 2 scores in the first half.

 

A dozen RIGHTLY CALLED offside penalties to keep drives alive for Kansas City.

 

Luck taking a sack on 3rd and short instead of throwing it away making it 4th and long.

 

Luck throwing to the flat for no gain on 3rd and long when the Colts NEEDED a score.

 

Leaving points on the board with missed kicks which elevated the scoreboard pressure. Without Vinny’s pathetic kicking the Colts would have been within a TD - despite being abysmal.

 

The refs missed some calls and had some bad no-calls against the Colts, but Indianapolis weren’t ready.

Poor coaching and decision making by the players and stuff all day. Thoroughly outplayed by the better team.

The Colts were out played and out classed in every way today.

 

With that said the 2003 Pats look at this game and go man the Chiefs DBs got away with a lot of holding that wasn’t called.

 

Did it change the outcome of the game?  No.  Does that make it acceptable if I am the NFL?  No.

I would have been happy to be one dimensional. We weren’t close to that.

When we played the Texans, we came out and scored 14 points early. We did it by converting 3rd downs. We were 0-9 in third downs today -- thanks to dropped passes, mental mistakes (Ebron running a 5-yard route on 3rd and 6), and playing finesse football in the playoffs.

 

On third downs, the Colts went empty formation and threw the ball. The Chiefs ran it right up the gut on every third down and short, and on every 4th down play -- all resulting in first downs.

They scored as easily as you can on their first three drives and it set the tone for the game.  It affected everything, as it always does.  

 

Eberflus can go ahead and sign the two year lease on his condo.

I agree. This team today was a junior varsity coached/played team.

The hype was being sold cheap and easy after last week. Looks like we might have had too many stock up on it. 

 

There was certainly enough around here who did.

I don’t think the defense did a great job  at all today. This whole team today was awful. We held once they started to back off being agressive. Not one part of this team today made me feel good. 

 

I feel food that that we have cap space and draft capital next season. I still feel we have the right people running the team but nothing about this game was good.

Also, we were less talented. It was obvious on several plays. Still a year away. This season was a huge success, let’s see what Ballard can do with major cash and several draft picks

Other than the fact Vinatieri probably won't be back, I'm not sure what you can take from this game that we didn't already know.  This D will struggle against elite offenses and we need more weapons on offense.  We need pass rushers and secondary help.

 

Also, Glowinski picked a bad day to have a crap game, with a new contract in sight.

I said the exact same thing in game thread that Frank said. And I seen it and said it early, like first quater. 

 

To win this time of year you usually need the coaches AND qb to come up big. Reich, Eberfus and Luck did not.

I fear Ballard wont spend enough in FA, possibly getting outbid again.

 

The Colts will get an infusion of young talent in the draft, but we need NFL experience quality from FA top.

The funny thing is, with the blocked punt and the fumble, the Chiefs tried to choke the game away like they always do, but we were so off today...  We were so off our game, they finally ran into a choke-proof opponent.  Lol

 

Against New England, I'm sure they'll be back to choking next week.

We could of still ran. It was only 2 possessions at the time. That's on Reich for panicking. They also made a lot of plays as well. Not a lot you can do Vs the Chiefs. The O-Line is what was horrible.

The Colts certainly didn’t do themselves any favors - dropped passes, missed kicks, stupid penalties, bad blocking.

 

But, let’s face it, the Chiefs thumped us on both sides of the ball.

The offensive gane plan was non existent. Forgetting what got us here. They got way to cocky thinking they could get into a shootout with them.  We had no identify on offense.  Despite the chiefs scoring  31 I think we could of scored if we would of been who we have been all year. We tried to be who we aren’t.

Hah.........D was positive? Did u watch the same game as I did.  Both sides of the ball were totally thrown aside. What's so hard bout saying that the Chiefs have more talent? Now we shall c if this team can rebound.  Sometimes getting totally man handled makes a team grow faster

Not really. After they stuffed us the first play we stopped. They went up 7 and our next drive was three pass attempts.

Glad we play these guys again next season. 

 

I will always remember that roughing call in the 4th. That, along with the no show by the offense, burns.

I like this coaching staff a lot, but repeatedly seeing an empty backfield on 3rd or 4th and short drives me nuts.

We saw no game plan today. If there was one it went out the window after the first play. 

 

I hope Reich understands he can’t  be dancing with the players after one playoff win. They are young and it has been a exciting season but he has to get their attention that we haven’t won anything.

 

On WED I also noticed the music playing during practice and the manic dancing all over. Starting next year we have got to grow up and take it a lot more serious.

They did this under Pagano too and it drove me nuts then and still does now.  That and throwing it 30 yards down field when you just need five on third or fourth.  For the most part they have gotten away from the later but to the first point at least keep a back in the backfield to keep them honest.  I am fine if you want to throw out of that, heck play action might even be the smart call, but don’t take away the run option completely!

Not many expected the team to make the playoffs this season, yet Reich got them there. Not only did we get there but we got past the first round. There is no shame in losing to the top seeded team in the conference. We overachieved and should be proud of this team.

Every NFL team practices to music.  It provides juice.  It also helps to simulate noise.

 

There are several reasons the Colts lost today.  Dancing last Saturday and on Wednesday aren't even remotely close to being on the list.

 

Also, let's please not lose sight of the fact that nobody expected this team to make the playoffs, let alone win a road playoff game, in the second year (first year with a new coaching staff) of a major rebuild, playing with one of the youngest (if not the youngest) rosters in the NFL.

We as fans got this false since, that what we did in the last two division games against our AFC south teams , would carry over to the elite teams in the AFC.  There is a reason that they had home field advantage, it wasn't because they, were an average team. We have by far exceeded anyone of the so called experts expectations of our accomplishments this year  in the media. We should be proud of what we have done this year.  That being said, to get to that level, we still need some more skilled players, to get into the mix with the elite teams out there.

I think it’s more we got a false since from what the Colts did after starting 1-5.  They played bad teams except for the Texans and Cowboys who are on their level but they beat.  They didn’t play any of the four “power house” teams during that span.  Until today they had only played one and frankly the New England game wasn’t as close as the score said.  

 

I agree they far surpassed what most people thought they would do this season, and in some cases made people’s pre-season predictions look stupid remember 2-14?  Fans should be proud of this team and this season.

 

Yeah today hurt and was ugly but most post-season loses are.  If they were pretty they would probably be wins.  

 

The future is bright but not guranted.  This team has holes to fill, another WR, a pass rusher, a linebacker who can cover tightnends, maybe a kicker and maybe a starting right guard on the line.  

 

I think Glow did a good job this season and far surpassed my expectations but hes the weak point on the line.  Teams started attacking him late in the season and we saw it again today.  One of the signs they are winning are The pentalies he draws because when a lineman gets beat they hold.  I am not saying he’s a bum and has to be upgraded but with him as a free agent it’s a position the Colts might go in a different direction on.

Kudos to the Chiefs defensive staff for a great, aggressive game plan.
They scouted us spot on and used that extra week superbly.

Our o-line couldn't handle Houston and Ford's speed, and Jones looks like a great interior defender. Gotta build a roster to compete with this Team.

 Mahomes = Ferrari       Andrew = Chevy Silverado

Classy response from Reich.     No surprise to me.

 

A bad last game is not going to ruin a great season as a Colts fan for me.

 

Looking forward to an even better 2019!

    • "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.
