You aren't going to find valid replacements for any of those guys at this point in the year.   Doing this would be tantamount to giving up on the season when we're still 5-3.   But

Cain has needed to be replaced since week 4 at the latest.    I'm partially convinced that Ballard didn't invest in a WR out of some misplaced faith in his draft pick and if that's the case

I love all the over reaction after a loss.

I’m sure a lot fans feel this way. It’s actually very simple.

 

Cut/Find immediate replacement for tonight:

Mark Glowinski

Adam V

Chester Rodgers

But you know that, you're just angry.

 

Besides, the guy who cost us the game right now isn't any of those guys, it's big Q, who let himself get pushed into Brissett and hurt him.  That might have ended our season, nevermind the game.

I'd add Cain to that list.

Cain has needed to be replaced since week 4 at the latest. 

 

I'm partially convinced that Ballard didn't invest in a WR out of some misplaced faith in his draft pick and if that's the case it's an abject disaster for the Colts because a GM who falls in love with his picks is a GM who will not be decisive when it's time to make the moves necessary to be the best franchise we can possibly be.

 

We needed a WR at the deadline.  We probably needed 2 WR at the deadling.  I'm still bitter at Ballard for effectively giving us -1 WRs at the deadline, as he HAD to know that TY wasn't 100% by then.

 

I'm beginning to come to the conclusion that Ballard is a great personnel evaluator but an indecisive leader when it comes to making cuts and replacing talent he drafted that needs to be replaced.  You can't afford to fall in love with yourself as a GM, and you can't fall in love with any one individual player or draft pick. 

 

I'm beginning to fear that Ballard is buying his own hype and that means bad things for the franchise down the road.  Refusing to buy talent at the deadline when there's a chance to compete for playoff glory right in front of you is a massive red flag for this.

 

As the old adage goes, it's more easily forgiven to try and fail, than to fail to try!

Cain has been absent - hard to know if he a keeper or not. This is essentially his rookie season after missing last year.. Funchess injury hurt. Ebron is not a big part of the offense this season. In fact Tight ends are not a big part of the game plan outside of Doyle.  On the other hand Pascal has impressed and Campbell was at least a factor in today's game. I am a bit surprised we have not used our backs more in the offensive passing game. We have Fountain back next season but suspect we will invest in a home run WR either in draft or in offseason FA market

I’d have to agree we have more than enough money and we sit on it, we need some game changers we need to spend in FA and get some holes filled

It's how we come to terms with who our team really is. After we all calm down, we'll lower our expectations for this team and realize that 8 maybe 9 wins is this teams destiny.

Depends on how gullible you are! If, You believe a good TC and private comeback video defines success, you could end up being disappointed.

None of their wins have been impressive. They play fairly well but dominate no one. If JB is out for several games the Colts are sunk.

I think we are better then 8 wins. This was just a weird game. We beat ourselves with turnovers.  We lose our center and no TY and we still were in position to win. Reich blew it T the end settling for a FG. His play calling has me scratching my head at times. One minute he is aggressive the next he is like old Chuck.

Good thing we have Miami. From what I seen from hoyer today he can get us that win and the jags win.

If we play like we have the past 2 weeks for the rest of the year we are a 8 win team. If we go back to playing penalty free, turnover free football, we are a 9 possilby 10 win team with some luck.

We play Miami next week. We should be fine. Denver had a great defense. Today was mental mistakes.

You think? Who knows who is playing next week and they have been showing a pulse last couple weeks. I wouldn't bet too much on it.

This is over-reaction.  Vinny is being discussed in another thread.  Glow should not be replaced yet.  He's played relatively well for Indy for a season and a half.  A bad game or two is no reason to cut a guy who has been doing well for over a year now.  The entire OL played poorly today

Hoyer is statue i.e., no mobility. 


So?

 

We didn’t lose today because of Hoyer.  He made one bad pass.   He played well enough to win.   He showed he can be a quality backup for the Colts. 


Hoyer was not the problem today.

Oh it’s not just this game, he is unequivocally the weakest link on the line and has been that. Gets beat more often than not and benefits from having Ryan Kelly and Braden Smith next to him and of course Frank Reich playcalling. Of course we will not find anyone right now off the street (angry post) but I’d be concerned if we don’t address it off-season.

And it's done pretty well on this forum.....tbf according to the majority on here we were doomed as soon as Luck retired and should have been about 1-7 by now with Brissett and failing that the season was then lost after we went down at home to the Raiders after which a lot of people then declared eating humble pie after the chiefs win! Maybe the pie has ran out so we're back to being a lost season! Point is teams have to come through adversary and show show character....that will be the judge in the long run.

Same ole Colts...can’t beat anyone that fans actually care about.  So sick of this friggin team finding stupid ways to lose to Pittsburgh.  Bad loss to a very mediocre Steelers team.  More of the same...this game lets me know not to get my hopes up on the Colts making any kind of post season run this year. Colts always cave to Steelers and Pats.  It is what it is.  Smh

    • First of all, I'd say bad fit for us. He's a 3-4 DE. In our system he'd be a tweener, or maybe even a 3T.  Great against the run, average vs the pass. Very solid 3 down guy overall in a 3-4.   IMO, even if he was a fit, we don't need run D help, and he'd be too expensive. Overall just not the benefit and value we need.    
    • Here's what we did on another board a few years ago. Worked out pretty good. 1 Round per evening 2 windows each night... picks 1-16, and then 17-32 (I think it was 7p-8p and 9-10, but could have been 8-9 and 10-11). That way, guys new pretty much when they needed to be there, and only needed to pay attention for roughly an hour per day. Really not even that long. Also gave the mods some time between windows to tidy up. 3 minute clock hence the "flash" term. If you miss a pick, you drop 5 spots (basically giving them an extra 15 minutes). If they missed it a second time, they get bumped to the end of the round and have up to an hour before the next days round starts. If they miss that, they get best player based on their primary needs.  We had 3 threads going at once, and 3 moderators. One thread for the pick announcements and general comments, one with a constantly updated order and big board, and one to manage trades. The big board management was great in terms of keeping it going and checking off who is gone. We also published team needs, but I can't remember if we tracked it except for using it when folks missed their window. Only trades allowed are pick for pick(s) so very little approval needed. No picks for existing players (We did the mock post FA fury, I think we started about 2 weeks prior to the draft).
    • I didn't say he could be as good as Leonard. I said pretty clearly that if Leonard was 95/100 That I think Oke's ceiling is about 86-90.    By in which I also added that any team would be alright that that level of play. I think you are misunderstanding. Because we both seem to agree that Oke will more than likely be a pretty darn good player. 
    • Again, I don’t doubt one bit he can turn out to be a good player. He has the traits. I watched him often when he was at Stanford... his name was not foreign to me come draft time. I was excited about Ballard loading up at linebacker which is a position we have plugged guys off the street before.    I just simply called out the inconsistency of saying he could be a good as Leonard (again, highly, HIGHLY unlikely) and then turn around saying that he could be “pretty good.”    do you know who didn’t need time to be great? Darius Leonard. THAT is the difference. Give Leonard time and see where he goes. My guess is the Hall of Fame. 
    • When he turns out to be a pretty good ILB everyone will be raving about how they knew it all along, and he just needed a little more time.
