Colts @ Los Angeles Chargers Game Day Thread


Recommended Posts

I thought JB had a great game.

I thought Mack had a great game.

I thought TY had a great game.

Defense.....That interception in the endzone was huge.

 

Vinny had an off day.

 

But there was a lot of good in the game today.   I'm encouraged.

Disappointing end to the game, only ourselves to blame as you cannot throw away 4 points. 

However, some positives to take from the game with brissett looking not as bad as a lot of people thought he would be. 

We need to move onto next week and see what happens with the kicking situation. 

Let's keep our heads up, it is only first game.

The defense was way too inconsistent today. Special teams killed us.  Offense looked great.  Kinda reminds me of the start last season with just too many mistakes.  Vinateri is the GOAT but that was just brutal but then again...I’m no kicker ha.  We’re good I think just need to clean up some really bad mistakes.  Handed LA that game

It’s past time, actually.

 

Badgley kicked well for us in last year’s preseason.  Should’ve cut Vinny then.  Then we had a second opportunity after the KC fiasco.  Signed him again.

 

Its the biggest personnel mistake of Ballard’s tenure so far.

That was stupid he showed us he was done in KC last year.

Disappointing loss.  Good news is, despite all the errors and given up points, Colts were right there against one of the AFC favourites.   Should’ve won, so optimism remains!

 

Oh, and this result would be no different if Luck were playing.  Difference in the game = one defensive offside penalty and or 7 missed points on special teams.  Just gotta clean that up for next week.

 

Speaking of which, next week’s game vs Titans is HUGE!  Must win to get in the divisional driver seat vs being 2 games back and in deficit vs a division foe. 

 

Go Colts!

Vinny had a garbage day.

I feel as good about the run game as I am worried about Vinny.

The defense was a mixed bag but leaned toward disappointing. Still getting killed by screens. Pass rush was better but the Chargers were really hurting on the OL. The worst thing was our run defense by far. Coverage didn't look great either, lots of uncontested catches.

Aside from it hanging 40 on a much favoured Browns D. Or are you saying you get some weird results in week one..

I only saw most of the 2nd half.

Mayfield threw that game away.  Titans didn't impress me as much as Clev disappointed.

We should be able to stop their run game.

He did.    He may be re-thinking retirement.  He said when he felt like he could no longer help the team, he'd retire.

 

I'm finding myself wishing he would have just retired at the end of last season.    

I appreciate everything he's done for our organization.  He won many games for us, and none of us should ever forget that.

    • We don't have a qb,  so no we don't need a wr more than a qb
    • My pick for QB would be Michael Gallup. Oh wait, he's a WR. Yeah then I will still take Michael Gallup as we need receivers more than a QB right now.   Send Rock to Dallas for Gallup. 
    • Gus Johnson is a play by play guy.   Romo is color commentator.   They don't have the same job.    Both are very good at what they do,  but they do different things
    • I see many of the draft "experts" talk about what the Colts will do in the draft.   The draft process on the QB position, even with all the improved scouting techniques is a highly flawed .   If you look at history some interesting facts come out. Drafting a QB in the first round is a high risk endeavor    In the past 9 Years 20 QBs have been drafted in the first round.  I wanted to come up with some metrics to see the % that have worked out with the team that they drafted them   I am "measuring" the results with the simple question,   Would the NFL team make the same draft decision, at their position in that years draft, in hindsight - Its a YES/NO decision   For the ones that are still TBD (last few years) I counted these as YES. The selection of Goff as a "NO" is not that he is a horrible QB, but a simple question.... If you could do the pick again would you take Goff at number 1 overall.....  my guess is the Rams would have gone another way   2012 Draft Round 1 1st Andrew Luck - YES 2nd Robert Griffin - NO 8th Ryan Tannehil - NO 22nd Brandon Wheedon - NO   2013 Draft Round 1 16th EJ Manuel - NO   2014 Draft Round 1 3rd Pick Blake Bortles - NO 22nd Johnny Manziel - NO   2015 Draft Round 1 1st - Jameis Winston - NO 2nd Marcus Marriota  - NO   2016 Draft Round 1 1st Jared Goff - NO 2nd Carson Wentz - YES 22nd Paxton Lynch - NO   2017 Draft Round 1 2nd Mitch Trubiski - NO 10th Pat Mahomes - YES 12th Deshaun Watsun - YES   2018 Draft Round 1 1st Baker Mayfield - YES 3rd Sam Darnold - NO 7th Josh Allen - YES 10th Josh Rosen - NO 32nd Lamar Jackson - YES   With this data, drafting a QB in the first round is a 30% hit rate   The folks that want to give up 2 or 3 first round picks to move up to get Fields or Wilson may want to think deeper on this   From my perspective, and looking at the analytics it would appear that drafting the best BPA OL, DL , CB, or even WR,  available at 21 is the safest approach   And going with an extremely low risk/ low cost FA (Winston) or if the deal is decent, offering a trade to get Matthew Stafford. (Stafford route is my first choice), but I wouldnt want to  get fleeced in the trade.   If the right LT isnt there at 21, there are a few FA OTs that we could pick up       Let me know your thoughts...........
