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:

    • Cam anyone recommend an alternative to ESPN'S gamecast? I have been getting fed up with all the glitches on gamecast, but haven't yet found a good alternative. I just want something that: 1: Displays the scores 2: I can click on the game to get the gamecast for that game.  3: has the play-by-play & all the relevant data like gamecast does.   Might anyone have something that they recommend? I appreciate any assistance. Thanks!
    • Same here. Love the interviews and some of the people pieces. The stats stuff, injury updates, and depth chart stuff are pretty bland or simply puff pieces.  Yup. Would have been a monster long term like the Pats now. Maybe better. I think Jerry just values control and bottom kissers more than winning. He desperately wants to win, but can't comprehend giving up control. 
    • The biggest thing that concerns me with Jacoby is the fourth quarter. The chargers game and the jags game are the only two games where I think this team played well in the fourth. Good QB have to finish games. Some of that is the lack of playmakers you have limits the playcalling and variety of plays so by the time the 4th quarter comes your figured out. But a lot of that goes on Jacoby.  
    • When he got rid of Jimmy, that was the biggest bonehead move ever. That Dallas team with Jimmy could've won 5 in a row. 
    • Yeah, I like the interviews and stuff for the most part but the stat articles can be eye rolling.   Not that there aren’t some impressive stats for this team, namely the rushing statistics (especially with how much teams are stacking the box) but yeah.
