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.

 

 

 

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.

The penalty on the Colts for hitting their center on their first drive was huge today....cost us 4 points!

All in all good game. Vinny really cost us that one. Sad that what used to be the best part of this team was a liability today.

 

Otherwise I’m looking forward to next week. Should be interesting to see how this team comes back from this.

Well that was pretty easy for them to march right down the field and win

 

Mainly the same 2 characters that were ripping the D early in the game. They just went back to them and there was no answer.

Same thing that always kills the colts over the years is still a issue. I have no clue how you fix it.

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 really didn’t miss a step out with Jacoby, He did a great job!!! Mack looked amazing he’s going to have a strong season. I love vinny and I’m not ready to write him off yet, he just needs to forget about this game and move on!

    • Nice thread...    There have been some arguments for a while now about the relative value of pass-coverage vs pass-rush. Teams offensively are turning to faster and faster game plans and this affects the pass-rush a ton. You can practically scheme the pass-rush away if you have good enough QB and receivers that get open quickly. The latest advanced analytics seem to favor positions like CB and WR value-wise over long-held champions like EDGE rushers or OTs. I will also take into account your characterization of the rest of the roster(average players as opposed to straight up trash). At some positions the improvement between pro-bowler and average/JAG is higher than at other positions. Those are just part of the considerations that will inform my choise here:   Offense:   1. QB: not controversial take here - most important position of all... he handles the ball and makes a decision that might affect the game pretty much 100% of the snaps. I want the best passer and decisionmaker to run my offense.    2. WR: yep, give me a beast of an X-receiver. Pass-catchers are incredibly important.   3. LT: Yeah, I know, this goes against some of the things I said above, but time and time again we see what a great LT does to an offensive line. Leremy Tunsil is not even that great and he almost single-handedly turned around the HOU OLine. Same with AC last year - we missed him mightily when he was injured to start the year and then turned the line into a great unit. And again - he's not even at the level we are talking here. He still has not had a pro-bowl or all-pro recognition(maybe he gets one this year, he deserves it). But yeah... give me Bakhtiari, give me Armstead, give me Tyron Smith level player... I think this raises the level of the whole O-Line, especially if it's filled with average players at the other positions(rather than horrible ones)   ------------------------------------ Those will be my selections offensively. I think a QB masks a lot of deficiencies and I think he elevates average players and squeezes everything out of most of them. Just look at what Luck used to do with players like Jack Doyle, Donte Moncrief, Eric Ebron, Inman, Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen...    Defense:   4. CB: yep, I want a shut down corner. Like I said earlier, newest research shows pass-coverage and especially on the boundary is paramount. and it affects pass-rush more than pass-rush affects CB play.    5. CB: yep, give me one more... I'm shutting down both sides of the field and hoping this gives additional time to my pass-rush to get there. They will play on island and I will scheme out everything else(i.e. slot receivers and TEs)... if I have to I will double away from them.    6. WILL: I want a sideline to sideline monster to clean up the run game and take on crossing routes in the short-intermediate middle in coverage.     7. EDGE: I still want a player capable of beating his man one-on-one on the line and creating pressure/affecting the pass when my pro-bowl CBs lock down their match ups.    So what do you think? Does it make sense?

    • Don't be ridiculous   Darius Leonard was an All-Pro his rookie year. Okereke will have a hard time matching that.
