Colts @ Texans Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

I am dumbfounded at the complete lack of ability to pass the ball.   There is no one that can get open, separate, catch, run after the catch, lead a receiver, go through progressions, good lord......

I guess we had to go for it there, but I don't know, it's not like I'd expect JB to make a play on 4th and long since our play calling makes it pretty clear we want to do anything but pass when at all possible.

I understand trying the first deep shot but it was 3rd and 4 that 2nd time, and they’d been 3 and out before after quitting the run after a TD drive that bad 17 runs in it.

Every one talks about Jacoby but last time I checked we have no solid recievers currently. TY doesn’t count because rusty and pitch count

i cant believe the play calling down the stretch , it blew the game keep getting yourself in 3rd and long because they know you cant do anything but run.   the sad part is we turned into the titans a 8-8 or 9-7 team that plays hard and just runs all game .  my fear is we will be stuck being to good to draft a good QB to bad to be a contender .   it is what it is .   we got spoiled with manning and luck.

The decision to run it with Hines on first and second down killed the drive and game.  Hines has no power and is only good if he can get through a hole quickly - if that doesn't happen he gets little or no gain.

Wouldn't go this far.... Texans play patriots next. We the titans. 

It is over.  U can't tell me that u see this team going far even if we make the play offs?  This passing game is beyond terrible.

Reich cost us this one.  

Kinda hard to put this on Reich when you have a QB that refuses to throw more than 5-yards down field.

 

Brisett: 129 yards with 2:00 left in the 4th.

More like season over.

Nah, they could make post season, but what's the point?  Glad we have all that cap space though, will come in very handy resigning all this talent....

I can’t believe people blaming the J man. Frank Reich called a Bill O’Brien or Andy Reid in a big game type game and that’s what happened here.

Exactly.... He cant progress through reads.... And he can't throw a man open, he just throws to spots, or comebacks, has this dude ever thrown a slant or crossing route in his damn life?

I agree, but at 6-5 i will not call it a season yet. But even if we only play a wild card game, it's all experience for our young guys. It's too late to give it all up and get a top 10 pick

Season is far from over. Texans still have pats and two games vs Titans. But the AFC south is gonna be a mess..

Agree. I’m just not sure we have the QB to get us there, the coaching lacks something and the players are being made soft. They certainly are hard to enjoy week to week.

Damn I hope Ballard is more willing to spend the money this off-season. WE NEED HELP now for the 2nd year in a row the colts are going to be the Texans +.

Your ridiculous.  Brissett is a great guy, teammate, leader.... Just not a starting qb

This gameplan was stupid Frank and his horrible playcalling.

I've seen better gameplans and execution watching high school games than this nonsense the coaching staff ran out there tonight - pun intended.

 

I mean seriously, number 33 is a good story and all but you feature him in half of the gameplan? Get outta here with that nonsense.

 

Texans came to play. The Colts did not. Simply put.

    • I think it is certainly possibly he lasts to 34. I could see Eason getting drafted before Love. 
    • The thing is Ballard has to keep the owner happy, the fans happy and sell tickets all at the same time. He is not going to give anything away when it comes to what he thinks will happen. I highly doubt he knows what he is going to do at this time. There are too many factors that come into play.  As fans we all think we know but we really don't have a clue.  Speculation is nothing but small talk that means absolutely nothing.   
    • Maybe some.  Winston did have a year where he threw a ton of TD's but also a ton of picks.     But Winston has always had a problem with interceptions that pre-dated BA.  The only thing BA's offense did was increase both TD's and Int's.  
    • I could see us going for names when it comes to QB (Rivers) or TE (Hooper or Henry).     I'm kind of crossing my fingers for a Rivers/Henry package deal.    I don't think we will bring in Clowney.  Ballard might kick the tires a bit but in the end I think he's over-rated and Ballard will recognize that and will be outbid.  
    • https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/nfl-move-the-sticks-with-daniel-jeremiah-bucky-brooks/id915544088?i=1000466694211   Highlights: - Medicals is the most important part of the QB for GMs - Most accurate and best information helps you make good decisions  - Important to see how prospects handle the big stage at the combine - the more time we can spend with a prospect the better we can get to know him - we let our coaches get the full time in the interview (all 18 minutes) - they gonna present a play, they gonna teach a play, they gonna watch the play, they gonna watch some of the prospect's film and they gonna see if they can repeat back what information was presented to them. Just their capacity to think on their feet, how do they handle the information, and some guys will screw it up.... it might be their interview no.10 and they might repeat something they heard in another room, but it's really a great insight from coaching and scouting perspective about how they learn, what can they retain...  - we are pretty selective - we are in the elimination business - we are going to eliminate the guys that we know don't fit. There is a very strict criteria that they have to meet in order to get onto our draft board and we gonna take them. From a football and personal character stand point there are certain things they have to have. Are they all gonna be perfect? No, but they've gotta be able to fit into the team concept.  - always gonna be front driven. That's how I was raised in this league. I think over time it shows. When you are good on the OLine and DLine, it gives you a chance to win every Sunday. It might not be pretty, it might not be what the world always wants, but when you can block people and control the line of scrimmage, it gives you a chance.  - we are in sub-defense world now where you are playing nickle and dime defense 70-75% of the time. So speed allows you to make mistakes. You can make mistakes but still recover from it. We are playing in ideal conditions in Indy - great building, great surface so we gonna play to that. So we are going to evaluate and acquire as many fast players as we can.  - good coaches adjust to the strengths of their QBs... (this is on question about the new breed of mobile QBs entering the league) - having a player with unique and explosive skillset (talking about players like Deebo Samuel, Parris Campbell, Tyreek Hill) puts a lot of stress on the defense. On the flipside it's important to have versatile defenders that can match with players like that and be able to do multiple different things.
