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:

    • When a QB has nearly 30 starts in his career, regardless of the circumstances, you know whether or not you have a franchise QB. If anyone has doubts about Jacoby at 27 years old and nearly 30 starts then he isn't the franchise QB.   There seems to be 2 thoughts regarding Brissett this season.   1. He is a franchise QB if the Colts upgrade the receivers and they stay healthy. 2. He is terrible and should be replaced as soon as possible.   The truth is somewhere between those two thoughts.   Jacoby would be better if he played with better receivers but that doesn't mean that Jacoby becomes a franchise QB. This doesn't mean the Colts don't need to upgrade that position group though.   Jacoby is not terrible. He is a QB a team can make the playoffs with and going on a run. But he is not an elite QB. So if the Colts come across someone in the draft who they view as being elite, or the potential to become elite, they will absolutely select him and let him sit a year or two behind Jacoby.    The Colts can believe in Jacoby as a starter but still look to upgrade that position if the right player comes along. 
    • When Hurts got pulled at half time 2 years ago in the national title game for true Freshman Tua that was all I needed to see. They interviewed Sabin after the game and asked why he put Tua in and he said “Because we needed to throw the ball and I thought he could do it better”. Pretty much a clear indication that Hurts isn’t exactly an amazing passer.   Then he goes to a coach who produced back to back Heisman QBs And has a turnaround and people want to act like it’s anything other than scheme. Hurts isn’t good; Lincoln Riley is.   I want no parts of Hurts. Give me Love all day
    • I just picked out this area of the quote in the post itself. Wasn’t picking on you, you’re just the quoted person it attached to I guess. 
    • I agree that I would challenge that as well.  Also, I didn't write it, the SI author did.
    • thats because they are getting better, 3 of the top 4 this year are pretty good runners   they dont always get hurt and slow down either, never happened to vick   and so what if lamar doesnt play until hes 40, he might win a super bowl or two by the time hes 30.  that would be worth it to me.     as for cam, hes had a good career.  could have been better with a Qb minded coach
