I didn't see the game.

 

What were JBs two longest pass plays?  I mean with lots of air, not catch and runs.

The really good thing about this game is teams will see this game and will be hesitant  to stack the box.

This wasn't the best day for our O.line. Brissett took several big hits. I hope he is ok overall.

Thanks but you don't have to be smart. Some people let the low yardage numbers cloud their thinking. He's going to have more games where he is closer to 200 yards, or below, when the Colts are dominating on the ground. That won't mean Brissett has "regressed". It will only mean the offense is taking what the defense gives them.

 

Luck threw for less than 200 yards 18 times.

In those 18 games the Colts were 12-6.

 

Luck threw for over 300 yards 35 times.

In those games the Colts were 18-17.

 

Less than 200 doesn't automatically mean poor performance and losing. And over 300 doesn't automatically mean good performance and winning.

So the ravens are tied with Seattle right now. I think with the injury to Mahomes the colts are the second best team in the AFC. How can you say any different when we beat Houston and KC.

I actually don’t think our pass pro is all that great, mainly on the right side. Glow’s had kind of a rough season and Smith struggles at times.

Baltimore, 4-2, being tied on the road with a 5-1 Seattle doesn't scream Baltimore is worse than the Colts. Record wise, we're tied for 4th right now. We also still have to go to Houston, so it's a little early to crown ourselves AFCS favorites. Oakland is only one game behind us, and owns the tie breaker after beating us in Indy, so that's a bit of a threat too. 

 

If you're talking about record alone, KC is still better. If you're talking about current ability, we're better as long as Mahomes is out. When Mahomes comes back and all his WRs are healthy, that's another question entirely.

I agree to an extent, but JB also needs to decrease his time-to-throw (he's bottom 5) and make it easier on the OL in general. I think that will improve as he builds confidence and chemistry.

I was going more on we just beat Houston and KC. Ravens lost to KC.  The chiefs are all Mahomes. If he does come back he isn’t going to be as effective with that big knee brace on. They have a couple hard games coming up.

Ryan Tannehill has thrown for over 300 yards today. With that titans defense he might get that team going again.

Mahomes may actually benefit long term being forced to become a more complete pocket passer. And honestly I wouldn't count on him wearing a big knew brace. If it was just a dislocated knee cap, and he heals well, it'll likely be just a sleeve per what I read.

 

Ravens lost a close one on the road to a complete KC. We beat a very depleted KC in a close one. The logic fails.

Nor am I. I have been expecting him to play a game like this. He is doing what he's to do. This game was drawn up for him to pass more.

He's a game manager in the sense that he manages a good game, and even when other things aren't working for him (as in KC) he has that to fall back on.

 

He's not a game manager in the commonly-used sense because he can do more than manage the game. 

 

But he does manage a good game, it's just that he can also make the throws and even use his feet a little.

Only complaint I have is Im still waiting for he and Deon Cain to get something going.  Other than that I'm totally happy.

Ebron finally got his head out of his behind.  Very good game from him today and I said we would need him in this one.  I also said we would need Brissett to do more through the air and he did just that.

Played great and people need to give him more credit for us being 4-2. 

and the week one loss was not his fault. Kicker missed 7 points in that OT loss to the chargers.

Jacoby Brissett is the perfect QB for the situation the Colts found themselves in this year with the retirement of Andrew Luck.

 

He isn't going to turn the ball over and lose the game with stupid decisions.  He is getting better every week at going through his progressions, making the right read, and taking what the defense gives him.

 

If he hones his anticipation and gets better at looking off safeties and throwing open his receivers... :woah:  JB could put up some legitimate MVP numbers this season for a team that could find itself in the mix in January, and that's pretty amazing when you think about it.

@EastStreet, you called it. You said this was JB's chance for a coming out party and he did just that :thmup:

I figured at some point Reich would open things up for him. IMO, it was the perfect opportunity in terms of opponent (strengths and weaknesses) and timing. I'm happier today than after the KC win. It's more than just a win in many ways. Huge step for JB. Gotta keep building and improving!! I'm trying to remain cautious, but it's hard not to be hyped!

The field was so bad. I saw a video on twitter of Bosa making the field a slip and slide.

The Colts kept Mahomes off the field with long sustained drives. Their first possession today was 12 plays eating up 97 yards. I don't know if it is Reich's game strategy but I don't think we will see a lot of long balls this year. His game plans are working although his going for it on fourth down I would prefer not to see much more of that. Today he did it and gave Texans the ball in Colts territory. Luckily, they could only score a FG. Intentionally risking giving up possession is worse than a fumble or INT.

Check the weather from that game.  Just about any QB would have struggled in it.

Brissett looked down field several times today.  It wasn’t there.  He did a much better job finding his secondary reads though before just dumping it to the dump off guy.

He looked great.  Those intermediate reads were the ones I was hoping to see.  The protection affords him the opportunity to eat a sandwich most passing downs and find someone downfield.  There was also people coming open late.

 

The game plan was again superbly Belechikian.  Take what they give you.  I would have liked to see them run it 3 times in the possession with 8 minutes left to kill 3 minutes of clock.  The incompletion on 1st down somewhat forces your hand on 2nd and 3rd.

 

there are opportunities in this O to make plays and he made them today.  Great job.

He can zip it for sure as long as the play design is there. If Reich can prepare the offense and call a game like he did, we are golden. My only concern with Jacoby is that I'm not sure he can make plays out of nothing, when the play breaks down. 

That being said, he is on fire so far and we really have a TEAM which I love.

That really bothered me.

 

The Colts first two possessions of the 4th quarter were run, incomplete pass, incomplete pass.

 

They took almost no time off the clock with those two possessions when the Texans needed 2 TDs to have a chance.

Just merging this thought with other comments I've read in the past, about him not being able to come off of his first read.

 

Seems to me that if he's taking  a long time in the pocket, he's looking at more than one receiver.

 

As he gains experience he should get quicker.  And I think having slightly better WR talent would help.  At least some consistency as to which WR is lining up in what role.

Ravens lost a close one on the road to a complete KC. We beat a very depleted KC in a close one. The logic fails.  

Neither logic is any good, because it doesn't matter what KC and BAL did, all that matters is whether we wins the game we're playing. What Baltimore did against a healthier KC is irrelevant.  Matchups change week in and week out.   Injuries are a part of the game and so on and so forth.  We beat one of the best teams in the AFC and then we knocked off the AFC South leader. We dont need to make a math equation out of it, but because it's the furthest thing from calculable.

    • I hear what you're saying, and I don't disagree.  I'm reacting to the message Ballard's recent actions in particular are sending.  I'm not saying I agree or even like it very much
    • This team  is fading fast in close games, now they have bank an inconsistent kicker to win close games. Game, set, match.  Top five pick for sure.
    • Theres probably some truth in that, and that worries me more than anything.   Folding up camp at the halfway point, with a winning record, in a winnable division is contrary to what we were led to believe this organization is about.   If what you suggest is true the "rivalry is not back on".  The idea that theres no quit in this team, top to bottom character matters,  that lockerroom culture matters and must be protected, that they prove their way through adversity,  and "1,2,3 family" simply wouldnt be true.  The culture they've said they're building becomes the palest illusion.   If what you suggest is true the colts are tanking worse than the dolphins, and wont be able to evaluate effectively because they aren't running an organization that believes in it's own professed culture.   If they're just playing out the string it means they've decided to evaluate players in a losing environment not a winning one.  They wont see the best of anyone under those circumstances.     Not saying you're wrong but if they're at that point already, under these circumstances.......irsay may as well just fire everyone and move it london.  Beckham can kick for us, hes close to 50 right?
    • The bottom line is they think losing him would be a bigger detriment in the locker room then if they just let him play it out. I am almost willing to bet they have talked to teams leaders to gauge if there is any back lash going on with AV. From the way it sounds so far the players are blaming how they are playing more then they are blaming themselves.
    • that's exactly what we should not be doing.   have you ever heard the phrase "perfect is the enemy of good?"  Well until the perfect quarterback comes around I'm perfectly satisfied with the good one we already have.   And I really think that squandering the draft assets to chase an ephemeral perfect Qb will hamstring us in other areas.   The microscope some of you guys hold Brissett under is abolutely ridiculous, expecting him to do things that maybe 4 QB in the entire league are actually capable of or you dismiss him as "average" or "a career backup."  It's honestly pathetic at this point.   Exactly 0 of the QBs that won Superbowls in the last 15 years were guys drafted to be the perfect QB.  15 of those 15 teams had a QB with flaws -- even Manning had his share of flaws by the time he won one, with his age mounting and his health starting to deteriorate.   We wasted a lot of time in the Manning era chasing Superbowls with a QB heavy team and living in denial about how bad certain areas of the team were, especially on D, because Manning bailed it out.  Cost us over and over again against the Patriots until 06 when we finally managed to eke one out against them.   Then we draft Luck and repeat those same mistakes until we break Luck down and wear him out trying to cover for all the flaws we refuse to admit are there until he retires.   There IS a reason our internet nickname is "the Glue Factory."  We are not kind to our horses at times, and overoptimistically expect too much of key producers while providing too little support.  And our solution to any problem, especially at QB, is to throw it away and draft another one.  The whole league is bad about this but we're among the worst.   Just once I'd like to see the fans of this franchise admit that there's more to winning football games than having a QB and that the solution to all team problems is not to throw the QB into the woodchipper and draft another one.    It's infuriating to be the fan of the second worst team in the league when it comes to this attitude (second only to the Jets) and watch it unfold in realtime again and again.  And they DON'T learn, and they will NEVER learn unless they're called out, and probably not even then.
