A play I’d like to see Sunday

Recommended Posts

 If YOU were calling plays Sunday, what play would you call that wasn’t called against the Chargers?

 

Mine would be a crossing pattern to Campbell (I don’t think they ran that, last Sunday).

A football through the the uprights....

 That happened twice (4 points) but that would have been funny, if it wasn’t so sad.

I like your crossing pattern idea.  

I would have liked to see a couple planned bootlegs.

Bootleg for a TD. If Manning could do it, I can’t see why JB could not.

Manning to Harrison on a deep post pattern :rock:

 

Seriously, how about a double-reverse with the ball in Campbell's hands and let him run like the wind.

He missed one from 46, 29 and an extra point. (7 points) the 46er can be forgiven I guess.

Play action 

 

A throw to Mack out of the backfield

 

Oh, and a successful screen for once 

 

 It seems all of our opponents have a plan to always cover Hines for screens.
And then we watch teams burn us over and over out in the flat.
We really missed Sheard.

As the offense progresses, especially the running game, play action opportunities will certainly increase along with its effectiveness.

 

I want to see TY go deep.

they are too obvious about throwing to hines when hes in the game but never to mack.  ive made some comments about Mack not being a good catcher, but thats something he should be able to work on.  its not like they are going to ask him to make a lot of hard catches..  The QB cant throw a rocket at his face from 5 yards away either though

More short post routes

and LESS screens on 2nd & 3rd and long. 

I don't know what the deal is, but the Colts have been terrible at screens for as long as I can remember.

Wasn't Hines a QB at some point in the past? He should be given the option to throw, if the sweep is not working.

I typically hate gadget plays but Id love to see a double reverse with Hilton and Campbell. Get the defense flowing east with Hilton and have Campbell come back West.

    • Here is another one. This is from July.    
    • Yup, it's been bad. It's not even worth taking the time to pull all-22 at this point. Those that deny the problem (missing wide open WRs) are simply disingenuous and clearly ride-or-die at this point. We've played 3 very bad passing Ds three weeks in a row, and there's simply no excuse for not hitting those guys. 
    • *What I meant was that I much rather prefer CJ or LW.
    • TY won't fetch a ton given his injury history the last two years. He'd absolutely get a contract from a lot of teams, but teams won't be knocking down the door to give up a 1R pick for him right now. And especially with this year's WR class.
    • I've said there are several kinds of leadership..... I can provide a pretty good breakdown of multiple seminars if you'd like, or the key ingredients from a few proven sports "leaders", but you'd just try to pull it apart like above lol and it would be a waste of time.   In short, some lead by performing, some lead by work habits, some lead by taking on a governing type persona (vocal about accountability), plus others, etc. etc.., and many a combination. And there are personality types within those leadership types. Some are just charismatic, some are ballers, some are authoritarians, some are Laissez-faire, and many more.... And there are leaders in every unit or position group.    Not sure what type of leadership JB provides, but we've heard he's vocal. I'd bet he has good work habits too. What we know is in a lot of games, he's not providing leadership by performance, which in sport is just as important. He may be leading by example in some ways in practice and in the locker room, but failing on the field at times. And as you know in sports, respect must be earned, and some players (personality types) don't give it (respect) unless the performance is there. And then there's experience and age....  All those things go together to make a "leader"...    And we all know teams take on identities, and a lot of time that identity comes from one side of the ball or one unit. Ray Lewis was the unquestioned leader and identity of the Ravens for many years and he wasn't a QB.   In terms of all things Colts, doubt the D needs much from him, so lets talk O.... I really doubt the OL needs much of anything from JB. Nelson and AC certainly don't. Nelson has been an alpha his entire life, was early on at ND, and is probably more of an external team O identity than JB currently. I'll take his NJ-esque, sumo looking, Taekwondo doing, A$$-kicking style and identity any day. He's not letting any one in the OL unit slack or go half speed. Doubt the RBs need a lot from JB.   The WRs, they probably need more than anyone. And honestly how do you think they view JB when they are working very hard to get open, are running wide open, yet JB fails to see them or are unwilling to throw it to them? How much respect do you give to a guy who probably preaches "do your job" to everyone, yet makes it hard for them to do their job.   In short, give me a guy that performs. Most successful QBs in college have a level of leadership quality or they wouldn't have done well leading their colleges. And... Those that weren't ideal leaders in college, but still did well (like Kelly), only prove you don't need it to be QB.    And finally, bottom line, right now the whole "leadership" conversation, regardless of importance, is being used as a deflection from talking about his deficiencies, and a reason not to upgrade/improve...
