Officiating was really bad (that "penalty" on Okereke was egregious), but at the end of the day, the Colts didn't execute.  Bad officiating is gonna happen.  Good teams can overcome it with good execution

 

That's an okay argument but in a billion dollar business you shouldn't have to be expecting to overcome poor officiating. That is similar to blaming a assualt victim saying they should have taking some self defense classes.

That was beyond ridiculous.  I have not seen an officiating team mismanage a game that badly since BottleGate.

Was bad but not as bad as the blocked extra point, the pick six, the gift field goal at the end of the half with a stupid penalty, and oh yeah the Colts “attempt” at the end of the game.

The refs combined to give the Steelers at least 6 points in field goals they wouldn't have gotten otherwise.  They were literally the difference in the game.  That's absolutely unacceptable.

This might be one of the most ridiculous analogies I've ever heard.  The NFL refs are human and will make mistakes.  Mistakes will happen to both sides.  Some bad calls went against the Steelers too.  At the end of the day, the refs weren't the reason the OL played poorly, or the defense couldn't make stops.  Edmunds averaged 6 yards a carry and our offense could hardly move the ball.

Not touching that with a 100 mile long pole.

Except that it isn't.  The only point where it fails is that bad officiating is a proverbial act of God, you can't prepare for it or do anything to protect yourself from it and at the end of the day that makes it more like blaming people for getting struck by lightning out of a clear blue sky.

Tell me how my analogy is wrong? If you cant accept being wrong. Move along.

 

A bad call gave the the opportunity for 3 points. What did the colts loose vt?

They can sometimes.  

  

But you absolutely cannot beat NFL refereeing. The teams are too close to overcome game changing, egregious penalties.  

The refs are terrible and the rules are terrible.

Statement 1: The NFL refs are human and will make bad decisions, but a good NFL team can overcome that with good execution

 

Statement 2: A sexual assault survivor is at fault and should be taking self-defense classes

 

How do those two even remotely relate?

Hoyer's pick 6 was not the refs' fault.  The defense giving up 6 yards a carry to Edmunds is not he refs' fault.  The OL not being able to block is not the refs' fault.

No NFL team plays perfect.  

The refs decide way to many games on phantom penalties.  

  

It's a problem.

It’s a problem but not one teams can do anything about so teams ignore it and focus on what they can control.  There was plenty from today’s game that the Colts can control and I’d hope they focus on that.

First. How was it human error when a flag was thrown incredibly late after fans and the team was calling for it?

 

Second. Your saying the colts put themselves into the situation by playing bad and even though officiating was bad it's their fault for not do doing better in that situation. Which is the same as saying the person who was assaulted put themselves in that situation for not better preparing for that situation. 

 

Third. Where did I ever say sexual? Your trying to flame the situation even more for being wrong. Maybe you should ban yourself.

That was mostly on the fact that Pittsburgh figured out Hoyer was a statue. Not knocking his overall play, but he is immobile and the D knew it and pinned their ears back.

But nobody will. I agree with you though.

Idk. I've gotten closer every season.  

Used to watch just about every NFL game.  

Now I follow the Colts on my app and this forum.  

  

Idk how much longer I can even do that.  

  

There's gotta be plenty of others.  

  

I love the Colts, but the NFL just isn't entertaining anymore.

In response to your first point, it's human error because the refs think they see something when it didn't necessarily happen that way.  The refs think they see a late hit or an unnecessary roughness penalty, but that's not really what happened.  That's the definition of human error.

 

Second point, a football game and assault are two very different things.  I drew no correlations between the two, and never intended to.  All I'm saying is that while the officiating was bad, the Colts didn't perform well.  Had the Colts executed well with good OL play and the defense making more stops, they could have won, regardless of the refs.

 

Third, my mistake.  I misinterpreted and thought you said sexual assault, but I was wrong on that, so that's my fault.  But the two above points still stand and your analogy makes 0 sense in this context

It really is frustrating. I also followed the league as a whole years ago, but now I'm down to basically our game each week.

The officiating is a problem though.

The field goal before the half on the first of two horrible calls on leonard.

O-line was bad today be we overcame that part the refs the drops and turnovers cost us this game.

Leonard hit him in the head.  Honestly I was shocked he didn’t get flagged the play before that for hitting the Steelers QB while he was sliding.  Still you are 100% right about the second call.  I’d say it was the worst call I had seen all year if they hadn’t flagged our linebacker for tackling later in the game.

    • Instead of starting a new thread, I figured I would just post this here. It is a good thread to do so. After analyzing every team we have had since the 2000 season, looking at statistics of each of those years, talent we had on those teams, and by my memory's eye sight I ranked them from worst to best, here they are: 21. 2011 (2-14) - worst team 20. 2017 (4-12) 19. 2019 (7-9) 18. 2001 (6-10) 17. 2015 (8-8) 16. 2016 (8-8) 15. 2010 (10-6) 0-1 playoffs 14. 2000 (10-6) 0-1 playoffs 13. 2002 (10-6) 0-1 playoffs 12. 2012 (11-5) 0-1 playoffs 11. 2013 (11-5) 1-1 playoffs 10. 2018 (10-6) 1-1 playoffs 9. 2008 (12-4) 0-1 playoffs 8. 2020 (11-5) 0-1 playoffs 7. 2014 (11-5) 2-1 playoffs/AFC Title Game app. 6. 2007 (13-3) 0-1 playoffs 5. 2004 (12-4) 1-1 playoffs/Manning 49 TD's that season 4. 2003 (12-4) 2-1 playoffs/AFC Title Game app. 3. 2009 (14-2) 2-1 playoffs/AFC Champions 2. 2005 (14-2) 0-1 playoffs, more talent than the 2009 team. 1. 2006 (12-4) 4-0 playoffs/SuperBowl Champions, best because they closed.   -Interesting since the 2000 season, our regular season record is 208-128. Playoff record is 13-15. The 208 regular season wins rank 4th most out of 32 franchises, the 13 playoff wins rank 7th most out of 32 franchises. The franchises that are ahead of us in those categories are: Regular Season wins 1. New England Patriots = 244 regular season wins   2. Pittsburgh Steelers = 217 regular season wins   3. Green Bay Packers = 210 regular season wins    4. Indianapolis Colts = 208 regular season wins   Playoff wins 1. New England Patriots = 30   2. Baltimore Ravens = 16   3. Pittsburgh Steelers = 15   4. Green Bay Packers = 14, Philadelphia Eagles = 14, Seattle Seahawks = 14   7. Indianapolis Colts = 13    SB wins since the 2000 season 1. New England Patriots = 6   2. Pittsburgh Steelers = 2, Baltimore Ravens = 2, NY Giants = 2, Tampa Bay Buccaneers = 2    6. Indianapolis Colts have 1, tied with the New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos, Philadelphia Eagles, KC Chiefs.   I guess our franchise over the last 21 seasons (2000-2020) going by these categories would be considered great. Something some should think about before criticizing our franchise or Mr Irsay.      My long historic post for the morning 
    • Heres another Ojulari type of guy that i like. His name is Malcolm Koonce. Same issue although i think hes a tad bit bigger than Ojulari in terms of weight. Comes from the same school as Khalil Mack. Actually built and moves like Mack. They list him as more of a 3-4 backer but he is so quick and agile i think it could work in a 4-3. Justin Houston type. He was in the Senior Bowl but i dont have clips. I think Buffalo ran the same 3-4 type system when Mack was there and he ended up going to the Raiders plaing in a 4-3 system so it could possibly work. Koonce is really quick.        
    • I really like that and tried something similar in in PFF's simulator.    I'd rather go WR or TE with the 3rd pick though and pick up a promising CB later, but, I confess, I don't value CB very much so that's probably just me. 
    • I would say my draft crush is Greg Newsome, CB, Northwestern. He's fast, athletic, a great player, well coached, and never out of position. 6'1 190, perfect scheme fit for us. Ballard visited his pro day and loves him. Great RAS. Great combine. He can even defend the run. My favorite CB in the draft. Take a look at him if you haven't already.
    • I'm thinking the Chiefs or Packers would do it. Packers could go after Newsome, Farley, Toney, or Bateman at 21. Chiefs could go after an O-Lineman at 21. Especially if Teven Jenkins made it to us. I'd hate to lose him, but he's more of a RT anyway, so I'd trade down in a heartbeat to get a 3rd. Might even get a day 3 pick next year as well from the Chiefs.
