So do you let him finish the season or do you cut him mid season if this continues 

I think you wait and see how he responds next week. He misses again...

Everyone was talking bout this D being top 10 even top 5 based on last year.  I said it, wait we will b playing top level O"s and we will truly see how good this D is.  I said our D was not that good based on th KC playoff game.  Lets hope is just a bad day and not of sign of things to come.

It'd be one thing if he just seemed a little off...

However, these misses looked a lot like when he was going through the groin injury. Especially that one limp skipper. Also, he was massaging the upper leg area late in the game. I don't think he's 100% and at his age, it's valid to wonder if he'll be able to get right.

Maybe he's hurting and he'll ask to get placed on IR. That would be best.

He was on the sidelines running some sort of machine on his thigh. Not sure what it was tho.

The loss is on Vinnie at the end of the day. I'm sure he knows it. I think father time has caught up with him. I think at his age, he is finding it hard to shake of those naging injuries.

 

However, it doesn't excuse the fact that the run D was terrible. Jabaal Sheard is a massive loss. Could also do with a natural dominant NT. Some shocking attempts at tackles today, particularly from the DBs. Also Leonard, needs to do better job of getting of his blocks.

Our DL middle left much to be desired, it was our biggest concern going in. I don’t think we played good QBs last year that we could place extra defenders by the box and this resulted in a stellar run D stat last year.

 

This year is going to be different.

This is why I said kickers kick in the preseason at least the first half he comes in without any game competition at all his miscues and us getting them a first down after a field goal cost us dearly. Brissett was not the problem it was stupid and just bad end just bad plays

Yeah, it definitely wasn't Brissetts fault.

I mean, I'd have more confidence in Sanchez place kicking than AV right now... honestly. He was bad late last year. He was brutal today. I'm not confident in him this season, and Frank should gameplan accordingly. 4th and short, we have better odds going for it.

Just too many mistakes all around to beat a really good team at their house. Vinny is an easy scapegoat, although, in hindsight, we should have moved on.

Looked much better in the second half.   Not so much in OT

We also spotted the chargers 14 points on nonsense penalties

You are correct.  They went against a bunch of lower tier QB last year.

Vinny's misses did really hurt, but there's always more to a loss than just one play or player.  Imagine the narrative if the touchdown pass to Ebron that didn't count ended up being in bounds and he maintained possession the whole time.  Would people still be demanding he retire or be cut if the Colts won today?

 

I think this is an over-reaction right now.  Everyone is prone to bad games here and there.  Vinny still kicked above his career FG% last year. In fact, the last time he had a season where he kicked below his career FG% was 2012.  He is old, but let's not let one bad game tell us that his career is over.  Let's see how he does in the next couple of games first.

Suppose we will wait to see of he loses us another game, maybe against a division rival. Then get the pitchforks out.

There are always hundreds of variables, but 7 points left on the field is a lot.

 

It hurts that it was Vinny, but if he made even the EP, we’d have had a decent chance to walk outa there with the W today. And he knows it.

He does stink kicking in that stadium in that direction. I went to a Colt - Charger game around 2010. It's the game where Manning threw like 4 ints . Vinny yanked a game winner on the games last play. I think it was around 29 yards

We don’t have the quality depth, IMO.

 

Brissett and the run offense showed us they could hang in games. If not for special teams, we’d have won. Our OL looked top notch again, it was beautiful to watch the lanes they made for Mack.

It was 7 points. 7 POINTS!!! That is unforgivable for a professional kicker of his stature in 1 game. It was his loss today. He lost that game. You can forgive s missed PAT. You can forgive a missed FG. There is no forgiveness for 2 missed FG and a missed PAT in the same game. It's time for him to be done.

Agree about the oline.   The dominated in the second half.    Also,   our guys didn't seem to have trouble with the heat as much as the chargers.   The training staff prepared them well

I highly doubt they are going to cut him after this game, beyond what all the GM's on this site think.

Middle of the field defense has to be better. 

Vinny has to be better. Today was inexcusable.

The Titans game will be interesting.

That was in a different stadium and city.

He is the GOAT.   He isn't getting cut.   Here may retire,   but I doubt it.    He knows he had a bad game.    He won't go out like that.

He absoultely let everyone down today. He lost this game single-handily....IMHO. 

 

Its just not the way I’d put it.  If he’d have made a stupid penalty or something like that, I’d use that term.

 

But he just shouldn’t still be kicking.  He should’ve been released when they set the roster last season — and we should’ve held on to Badgley.  Then he should’ve been released after KC.

 

They’ve held onto him because of who he is rather than him still being the best option for the team.

 

I’m more angry at Ballard for hanging onto him than I am at him for missing kicks.

You can't say what would have happened on that drive if they kept it. We can say that he left seven points off the board for us.

Then any missed FG in any game where a team loses by less points than the amount of FG missed, like 2 pts sometimes, is the kickers fault for losing the game?

 

The way I see it.

 

That dropped punt is how we got the ball for him to miss one of the FGs we're complaining about, I think.

 

And we scored a two point conversion to offset the missed PAT

 

The defense failed to stop Rivers at anytime, until Rivers stopped himself by choosing to throw it late in the middle of the endzone.

 

And we actually lost the game by the D hardly challenging SD moving the ball on us in OT.

Don’t forget that we let Peyton Manning go.  He didn’t retire then.

 

The fact that he’s the GOAT has clouded everybody’s thinking — including, apparently, Irsay, Ballard, and Reich.

    • Just saw a mock with the Colts taking Kinlaw in the 1st then Devonta Smith with the Skins pick, I like that a lot. Doesn't solve the QB problem, but solves 2 others. I'd almost rather go Qb early in the draft and fill other holes in FA. 
    • Yeah no. I know the Colts franchise is so used to always having the answer in front of them but this is not it. Jacoby Brissett is not the future of the Colts plain and simple. A fluff piece from SI doesn’t change that. He not special whatsoever. He has clear limitations that aren’t going to fix themselves when everyone is healthy. He’s not bad or anything but he doesn’t scare anyone on the opposing team. Teams are more scared of Winston then they are Jacoby.
    • I’d 100% challenge this sentence. I’ve not seen much, if any improvements in processing from JB from the 2017 year up till this last game. In fact, it could be worse now than the 2017 season. Either way, processing is certainly his worst trait and I don’t think bodes well for a starting QB in the NfL. If only he could get the defenses to respect his game just as an average starter, the game could open up so much more.    maybe our offense should just become the Army-Navy game style. Run run run run run. 
    • It's a pretty darn good roster overall. Folks poo pooing this roster simply have a singular and Colts-centric view and little knowledge of the rest of the league. We've come such a long way in a couple years. Sure we have places that still need upgrades but if you compare the units/positions from 4 years ago, the transformation is pretty obvious.    That said, it's a lot easier to improve a very bad roster, and it gets harder as the overall depth and talent improve. Replacing bad with average makes a big difference. Now we're trying to replace the average, trying to build depth behind the good, and bring in guys to eventually replace the aging good.    I've said for a while, I love what Ballard is doing, but his job was easier early on. It's what he does now and in the next couple years as it gets harder, that is what is important.    As far as Reich goes, I like him a lot, but I'm still on the fence with him a bit. I give him a pass for this year as his talent at QB took a major hit. The only thing I'd ding him on is lack of QB development/improvement. I don't necessarily blame him though as I think JB has just hit his ceiling and not sure he'll ever improve some of the basics he struggles with. He has had some real duds in terms of game plans though. 
    • If I had to guess, it's not that they necessarily love JB as if he was top tier guy, it's that's there's no clear moves to improve the position through the draft. And even though I think a guy like Andy Dalton is probably a sizable improvement to JB, people aren't going to accept that..
