AV perfect in week 3

It’s called a practice (noun not verb here) because it is the act of working at a profession.

 

My original tongue in cheek comment was to illustrate that not many occupations allow a 20% success rate.

 

Being pedantic probably but doctors and other such roles (e.g pilots) have a boatload of process, as well as checks and balances around them to allow for human error and stop it all being on one man. 

 

With a kicker it’s pretty much all on you.

Pilots would’ve been a better choice than a doctor. Good call.

 

Either way you’re right. Kickers are on an island. Like a qb if they mess up, it can mean worse things than if a lineman does, most of the time. 

 

In keeping with football, had JB thrown multiple picks, would you understand if fans were asking for a change? If in three games his completion rate was at 20%, would fans be wrong to question his starting position?

mid he was doing his job we wouldn’t be talking about him he’s been playing like crap he had better made everything 

I'll admit, I've been skeptical of him the past few weeks, but to be fair, in the grand scheme of things, he's been kicking well for a long time, and it definitely seemed to be a mental thing.  All players have bad games.  When you are so good, that the exception is to be great, all the time, it gets amplified when things go wrong.  One game down, the rest of the season to come.  Until he proves to fail in the clutch of a game winner, I'm still glad he's our kicker for now.

I can totally understand, he looked done to me after game 2.

BTW thanks to those Colts fans for helping us all earn the right to refer to this team as "we."

We can refer to them however we choose. I didn't realize that was a problem for some people until today.

Two things, I'm glad AV had a good game, it was needed for the Colts and him.  But one good game does not erase the two really, really bad games he has had this year.

 

Two, I'm not sure where the "we" comment came from.  Personally, I don't use pronouns like "we", "us", or "our" when referring to the Colts.  The reason is simple, I am not doing anything to contribute to the wins or losses.  I spend money, but I do that at a lot of places.  I pay my electric bill every month, but when I call them I don't say, "We need to lower our rates."  Same reason I do not buy "authentic" jerseys.  Those guys work hard to earn that jersey, to me it cheapens it if I were to go buy one.

 

That being said, I know the owner likes that fans say things and "we" and "our".  They are literally banking on that type of fan.  And I'm sure that some players get weekly or monthly reports to see how their jersey sales are going.

 

of course, I don't knock other people who say "we" or "our", nor people who buy jerseys, it's just how I feel.

Just for clarity, I use the term "we" as well. It was that you used "we" when stating that "we" needed to see a 50 yarder from him, and I need nothing of the sort. He is all good in my eyes. 

 

All good, my friend.

Fair enough. People use the term we quite often though and it's up to the reader to determine if he/she is in that group.

After almost 50 years, the Colts/Orioles/Wizards are very much we to me even though I realize I don't have a roster spot.

I like to think of it as a collective we. we are not on the team, but we support it and thats enough for me to say that.  dont see many players pushing back about it either, they know its a business

Thanks. For me, it's Colts, Blazers, and Beavers. Almost 50 years for me too. :thmup:

    • 2 WRS that we could get later that I really like are Whop Philyor from Indiana and Tamorrion Terry from FSU.    Whop is a small fast receiver. He is 5’11 178lbs. Stats from this year are 1,001 yards and 5 TDS.    Terry is amazing.  Big, tall, fast and physical. He is 6’4 203 lbs. stats this year are 1,023 yards with 8 TDS. 
    • My delusions all ended in grade school lol. My team was undefeated and un scored on all regular season. At the end of the season, we played the top league (based on size, like HS class) champ, and got literally crushed. Think of it as a 1A playing a 5A...  We had 12 total kids on our team, 11 playing both ways, and one kid that didn't want to play..... The team we played had like 35 kids and many had more facial hair in the 8th grade than my father.... It was a fantastic learning opportunity for my ego and I.....    I watch film on just about every player the comes to our team. I already watch and attend a decent amount of SEC games, so I already had a better than average familiarity with the kid. He absolutely looked on another level in college at times, and looked that way against some of the best teams in CFB. I'm not just an SEC junkie though. ND is my absolute #1, but I follow anyone they play pretty religiously (know thy enemy), watch a lot of Big10 (I graduated from a Big10 school), and by reason of where I live watch and attend a lot of SEC and ACC. I'm just a FB junkie to be honest.
    • This kid look promising any word on him his highlights look great could be a sleeper?  
    • That report says Campbell had an injured hand..... I thought it was his stomach?
    • Edmund Sumner will play against the Pistons tomorrow. I wonder how he factors into the rotation.   Either he takes Aaron Holiday/TJ McConnells minutes, he remains out of the rotation, or they go back to a ten man rotation where they do small ball and play all 3 guards together at some points.
