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:

    • I think they are smart,finding thee guy is never easy .Not like other teams in the league are not  in the same predicament.We have been in quarterback heaven the last 20 years.
    • So I didn't get everyone, so here's my updated roster.   Full PPR QB: Winston @ Det, Tannehill vs Hou RB: Cook @ LAC, Elliot vs LAR, D. Washington vs Jags, mattison WR: D. Moore vs Sea, Hopkins @ Ten, Gallup vs LAR, ODB @ Ari, Crowder @Bal, D. Slayton vs Mia  DST: Pat's @Cinci, Bal vs NYJ   In this one I'm looking to flex Washington or Slayton, depending on Jacob's status     Half PPR QB: Winston, Darnold RB: Cook, Hunt @Ari, P. Laird @NYG, Mack @ NO,  WR: Thomas vs Ind, Adam's vs Chi, Diggs @LAC,  D. Slayton vs Mia, Z. Pascal @NO DST: Ravens vs Jets, Steelers vs Buf.    In this one I'm considering a couple options:   1. Laird over Hunt since he's both the main back and pass catcher   2. My flex between Diggs, Slayton, or Laird/Hunt.  Not trusting pascal since he'll be shadowed by Lattimore most likely.    @chad72
    • The moment he was associated with a Colts WR thread! 
    • @Btown_Colt   You fell back there at the end. I hope it continues instead of having another unfortunate loss like our last matchup where I scored 140. Though our projections are pretty close, I'm really rooting for one of your players. I've got Thomas in my money league, helped get me to the semis last week and I really need some good points from him this week as I face the #1 seed.  Our projections in that league are only a point and a half difference. So lets both hope for a 40pt game from him...but only catching TDs from Taysom Hill and not brees lol.   GL
    • He's just a very backup and that is all he is a backup.
