Colts @ Texans Game Day Thread

Reich confuses me so much. Texans have a beat up secondary and we would rather run for a loss. This is the first time I think Jacoby looks a little in easy.

Why not take a timeout as soon as down and take a shot at end zone?

Wanted to save the TO and see if they could clock it. Didn’t get lined up quick enough. It happens

I'm not happy with it but it seems pretty obvious that this is what our offense is. Even when we tore the Texans up the first time it was off of mostly crossing/rub routes. No deep stuff.

If we could just put up some more points here.  Our defense can snuff these boys out as long as we don't blow any more coverages.

At this point it’s probably time to just admit that it isn’t capable. Brissett is not a QB capable of doing that. He can move the ball down the field at times, but he can’t shoulder a game, take it over, and will us to touchdowns. It doesn’t matter what happens in the secondary, Brissett will never see it. He reads his intended target and everyone else is just wasting time out there. 
 

Not that they can really prey on a secondary anyways...

Wow.

i’m rather surprised by the negativity.

we havent played well and we’re right in there in a hostile environment against a really good team.

  We’re in great shape for the 2nd half.  We had tuff field position, penalties, and we’re right there.

  If we make the right adjustments, its ours to take.

So are the refs

Now wait a minute 71 had his hands on our rusher the exact same way that Glowinski did earlier and got flagged, but no flag there???? C’mon now what is it with this officiating????

This is one thing that makes this game (NFL) is just getting hard to watch. One time it’s a foul, next time it isn’t. I just don’t understand. The product is becoming hot pile of crap.

I honestly do not think JB is 100% so Reich is going real conservative. I will take 10-10 at the half. The 1 TD they scored that was real bad blown coverage. Our O.Line should wear them down in the end but we can't allow Watson to make big plays.

Honestly what I would like to see is a football show where all the bad calls over the week are shown and broken down by former refs.

 

The bad plays by refs should be highlighted to it forces the refs to be accountable for their bad calls

I just feel that we can snuff these boys out.  Need the offense to put up more points.

Except for the games he already did this season. 
 

good god man. Your not getting Peyton Manning Star Wars stats but I can think of games Jacoby did exactly what you just said. Willed us to a win.

  Got to wonder if they’re just being cautious or if TY’s calf is sore.

  Love to see them open it up too but however they get a W is fine by me.
   Defense is playing well (save the fiasco on the TD to Hopkins).

   Vinny hit that last on solid.

Go Colts!!!

Yeah, JB is having accuracy issues and he can’t run out of the pocket as well.  


He looked, for lack of a better word, almost gimpy on that TD run. Not terribly so, just wouldn't be surprised if he's not 100%.

Great game so far, only gripe being Wilkins not one stinking carry. 
 

Go Colts!

I am kind of surprised Reich hasn't sent TY deep one time.

Technically 15 but I stand by my point. You keep the TO so you don’t rush your inconsistent kicker if your next play is short of the goal in bounds.

Yeah, a couple of throws were uncharacteristically behind receivers.  I think the knee is throwing him off just a little bit.

Well the good news is we're getting them to play our ball.  This is a team that can hang 45 on you if you're not careful.  

 

That spy is somewhat effective, but I really wish we rushed 4 guys more often.  We're forcing throws assuming Watson will break outside the pocket. 

 

Our coverage could do better than to let guys beat them off their first cut though.  

 

Offense is about what we've come to know under JB.  We're not going to move the ball in chunks.  Man I wish JB was better at anticipating receivers being open.

You still have no chance of clocking. The receiver was to far down the field. You make one throw to the end zone or out of the endzone.

 

That was a no faith in your QB call. Which maybe other are right and the knee is causing some issues

So you eliminate a chunk of your playbook when the other team knows it?

 

We needed the points.

You wouldn't  throw short of the goal. Take the time out and if it us not there he throws it out the back of the endzone.

    • That's a nuanced question. First, how are you defining #3. Is it third "best", or projected third in snaps. In a base C2 D, I'd say it depends on your individual personnel skillsets, how often you use subpackages, how much do you use Ss as a big nickel or dime, etc..   Looking at our personnel.... Hooker - rangy FS best suited to lurk and cover, and a guy who might be better suited in a C1 D.   Blackmon - played in system that was uber "man", has a CB background (he struggled at CB though), and is much better tackling than in coverage (he can really lay the wood though).   Willis - Great nose for the ball, excels near the LOS, but struggles big time in coverage on the back end.   Based on that specific personnel, I see our talent depth chart (not actual depth chart) FS - Hooker, Blackmon, Odum SS - Blackmon, Willis Nickel/Dime S - Willis, Blackmon   So all that said, I see Willis, who is a SS, as the #3.
    • I don't mind lists at all. It's just entertainment.    And I agree it should be "projected best graded", but at the end of the day, their grading system needs to be tweeked so that projected best graded is the same as projected best.   Not going to crown Mahomes as best ever yet, but he certainly has the potential.
    • With Mahomes anything is possible. He’s that good. He’s the difference between the Chiefs and the rest of the pack. That said, watch out for the Ravens. They have a heckuva QB too, and the better D. 
    • I agree, we may even go 11-5.   Jaguars will be in the trevor lawrence sweepstakes. Titans are our main competition and have a very underrated defense.   Texans are interesting. I believe this is their last year of contending for a while. Hopkins, Clowney, and soon Watt will be gone. I believe Fuller is a FA soon as well. That's 4 first round picks. No first round pick this year or next year. Make that possibly 6 from 2011-2021. They will have to pay Watson as well. Bye bye salary cap.  Bottom line, they will soon be the 2012 Colts with the Grigson damage (or BOB), already done. One more year.   Colts 11-5 Titans 9-7 Texans 9-7 Jags 4-12   Competitive division that falls off a bit next year.
    • Don't get any classier than Frank.  I want to go through a wall for him and I don't  even play for him. Lol
