Vinny will finish the year 100% on kickoffs and sign a new deal with the colts for 3 more years. 

 

Better chance of the guy who started at QB for the Colts last season coming back this season, than that happening.

Is "100% on kickoffs" mean all touchbacks?

When I think of how much I was looking forward to this season it is a little depressing to see how it is panning out.

Give it three more weeks,  could look totally different.  If it looks worse, "a little depression" seems like a reasonable response. Either way, looks you're on the right track.

Tony Dungy was on the fan this morning. He said his second year in Tampa they had a kicker that kept missing. The media kept saying he needs to go and they were going to miss the playoffs. He said he went into the locker room and told them I don’t care if he misses all his kicks he is our kicker. Your just going to have to go out there and take the ball away. He said it really got the team going.

The only difference it hasn't got the Colts going.

What?  So many special teams experts in here.    They obviously know more than people that have been doing this their entire lives.    I love you grams.  But obviously you're wrong.

Was that 62.5% 5/8 FGs? Because that would be a small sample size. Bryant is low and I'll admit I'm wrong there, but there's better options than Adam still.

Clearly this is due to the league not wanting the colts to win.   It's all rigged from jump street

FG kicking is sub-par around the league. 3 out of 4 FGs seems to be the best you can ask from most kickers this year, it seems like. Last night, watching the Cleveland kicker shank 2 FGs badly but hit his PATs made it seem like there is going to be a trade off we have to settle for in the current landscape.

 

The grass is really not that green on the other side, it seems like. We just have to get behind our team and coaches and AV as well and ride it out this year hoping things will get better. Whether the decision is right or wrong, the least we can do is support their decision, even if we don't agree with it because our Colts need it!!!

I’ll be there supporting, even though I disagree with their decision. 

 

As for last night, wasn’t the Cleveland kicker 16-16 on fgs before last night? Thought they put up that stat before his first miss (that figures).

Kind of stretching it there.

Maybe "Uncle Oliver" has been molesting his nieces.   Do you still invite him?

 

Adam has been stinking it up most of the season.   It's not like the Colts didn't give him chances.  He's 70% on extra points.   Worst in the league my a bunch.  Getting rid of him isn't an insane idea.   Neither is keeping him.

actually he started missing quite a few beginning the last 6 games of the 2018 season also. Should have been a red flag then coming into this season.

I see posts by people in here about Colts fans or how a Colts fan should be. Only problem I have ever had in here and it is only with a handful of fans is they seem to only post a lot when we lose and disappear when we win. Strange to me, I have noticed that with a few. They almost seem to get some kind of enjoyment out of us losing and bashing the team. Also too much negativity sucks, being critical of the team after a loss is fine though IMO. If you are going to do that then praise the team when we win. As far as who starts at QB, I have said all along as long as we are winning I really do not care who starts. Brissett gives us the best chance of winning this year so why not pull for the guy to succeed instead of bashing him?

It's true.  Nothing drives posting like a loss and poor play.

That's always been how it is.

I'm thinking of all the 'Fire (fill in the blank)' threads we've had over the years and all the 'cut (fill in the blank) threads as well.

We try to weather the 'venting' period, maintain a reasonable space for ongoing frustration but, also move on to less ranting because that's not what the boards primary purpose is..

You are right, we need balance between the fan camps.  That's the goal.

There should be room for fans to be ticked off but also for other fans to not be subjected to nonstop venting.  After all, the board is for discussion and rants should not dominate

Achieving that goal is always a moving target

There aren’t rules that define a Colts Fan. 
 

It’s hard to believe some of the posters on this forum are really Colts fans,  when it is blatantly obvious their M.O. is to bash the Colts when the chips are down.  It is their “get off”, so to speak. Maybe, they were bullied as a child. :dunno:

Second sentence contradicts the first.

 

Fans who only post to vent are fans.  Most of them anyway.  

 

But I agree that too much bashing isn't really discussion, it's just subjecting others to your anger.

 

It's like booing at games but then going home and continuing to boo all day every day.

So if I have a great family but Uncle Oliver is struggling, I should quit inviting him to family functions for the better of the family? Or we can have his back, believe in him and encourage him. This team claims to be the tightest locker room in the NFL.

I had a situation like this recently.  I went ahead and personally invited uncle oliver.  He didn't come.  His absence created drama.

 

Sometimes there's drama NOT MATTER WHAT YOU DO

Personally, I believe all that really matters from the kicker, is him doing his job of making the kicks.

 

This.  Missed field goals are like missed free throws in basketball.  So upsetting and incomprehensible.

I think this has Irsay all over it. Hes msking Ballard and Reich back up Vinny... I think hes scared Pats will steal the retirement thunder. I do believe the Pars would sign him to finish there. Carry two kickers.

This reminds me of all the posters who insisted that Irsay wouldn't fire Grigson because he was like 'the son he never had'

 

I think Irsay has always been clear on his admiration of the stability and success of the Steelers organization.  I think the quest for that kind of stability is what drives the lack of knee jerk reactions.

 

I also think he's always been clear that his goal is to hand power to the coach and the gm.  His track record as owner is evidence of that.

 

Whether or not you agree with the decisions that you attribute to him alone, I think it's clear that nothing so trivial as having retirement thunder stolen has ever driven the leadership of this organization.

I love this analogy!

 

 You lose by a few points while shooting 50% free throws.

 

You say “if we just shot 70% on free throws we win the game.”

 

“If we make one of those kicks, we win the game.”

 

Never the only reason for losing, but a glaring one.

Lol. At least you didn’t say my analogy was dumb. I will think harder before I post another analogy.

Well, to make them equal, the basketball player shooting the free throw would have someone else throw the ball to another player, then hold it for them, while the rest of the team blocks for the shot.

One person shoots a free throw. A Long snapper has to get the snap right, the holder has to grab the snap, place it correctly, and the line has to block adequately. 

 

Comparing a free throw to a FG kick is extremely inaccurate.

Lol haha.  I am well aware of the dynamics. 

 

I also understand what @Nadine was saying.  People think free throws should be automatic points, the same as FGs or extra point kicks.  Not always a given.. and fans are very disappointed when they don't happen.

Certainly there is more involved in a FG kick.

I was talking in a more broad sense of their place in the games and how fans react to them

I never intended to say they are precisely the same.  Not sure how you got that

Oh yes,  they are totally different from an execution standpoint, but very similar from an expectation standpoint.

    • Also I want to note something else.     I don't think the talent around him should be used against Fromm.  Tua is on a loaded team and so is Trevor Laurence who everyone has already crowded as the #1 pick in 2021.     Shoot Tua has 3 receivers who are projected to go in the 1st round.     And quite frankly Burrow's team probably isn't lacking for talent either.  If you want to hold the abilities of his teammates against Fromm I think you should hold it against those others as well.     My biggest worry with Fromm is that he doesn't have the zip to put it in tight windows.     Tua there is actually a little concern about arm strength but the bigger worry is if he's going to survive in the NFL.  Dude has had a lot of injuries for a QB playing behind an Alabama OL.  On top of that he's also on the small side which helps lead to the impression that those injuries are more than just bad luck.  
    • I actually don't think so.  I think with the success of Lamar Jackson (and the NFL being a copycat league), some team will overdraft him and probably take him the first round.
    • I wouldn't support it. Brady has sharply declined. Give me Rivers in a one-year deal. Better version of Brady at this point.
    • Based on his game by game stats here are my impressions.     He folded against some of the better teams.  I understand he doesn't have the talent around him to pull out a win in these games, but I expect a good future NFL QB to have a decent game where he would at least post a stat line that would show that they are alone willing the offense to moving.   Just doesn't happen.     Against LSU - 15/30 for 130 yards 0 TD's 3 INT's   Again I get that he probably had to play hero ball here but I would like to see some hero ball that is actually successful   Against BYU   29/49 394 yds 1 TD 3 INT   His team was down only by 7 at the half.   So you can't excuse his 3 picks on him having to force things.  He chose to force things.    On top of that in games that are competitive.   Against Wake forest.  A game that I will note Utah State was leading at the half  (No excuses)   33/48 416 yds, 3 TD's and 3 Int's.  Given that this was a 3 point game his int's probably cost his team the game here.     On top of that he had an RB that had 141 yards on 19 attempts for 7.1 yds/carry.     Against Nevada which they won handily.     13/31 169 yards 1 TD 1 Int.  In this game he had 2 RB's over 8 yards per carry, another at 6.2 yards per carry, Defense chipped in 2 Int's and he had a kick return for a TD.   Who the heck throws 31 times with your run game and defense destroying them like this?     To be fair towards the end of the season and the bowl game he had some pretty strong games.   But I don't think I can look at this and say "he was on a bad team".  To me the best construction I can put on this is a guy who started believing his own hype, called his own number far more often than he should and endangered the ball far more than he should have in order to impress the scouts.   To be fair if that is the case it can be corrected and it does seem like he might have done that late in the season, in fact he has some statistically solid to good games towards the end of the season after his team was destroyed by BYU.   But at the same time at the beginning of the season he never seemed to lift his team to victory and based on the stats it seems like he might have called his own number or forced some things that actually cost his team the victory.   This does raise questions about his maturity which I think he has to answer.        
    • I 100% agree, and I see the Chargers being the winners if they want him.  Makes sense, his family is there, they already have a home in LA I believe, and he get to prove he was great even without BB.. (the last part be harder to prove at his age.. now 5 years ago yes.. lol)
