Colts @ Texans Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Well that is the season short of winning out but let’s face it that isn’t going to happen.  At best 9-7 or 8-8.  It’s been a fairly pathetic year and does anyone really see us beating the Patriots or Ravens, let me answer that NO.  Jacoby and Hilton are hurt far worse than is being let on and at this point would probably be best to put them both on IR and let them heal.  Tank remainder of season and get a good draft pick.

Absolutely crapped the bed. 

Worst

Gameplan

Ever

 

No imagination. Ran the same 4 running plays the entire game.

 

T.Y. drops 2 first downs......that didn't help.

 

But I cannot stress this enough.

 

Worst

 

Gameplan

 

Ever

 

 

 

Like ever

 

It really wasnt. We controlled the clock. We ran the ball well. We stalled drives with dropped third down conversions and mistakes. We were 1 yard short of a 4th down conversion that would have likely led to a fieldgoal attempt to send this into overtime... or better yet, win with a touchdown. 

 

This Houston offense is capable of putting up points in a hurry, and we held them in check many drives and to 20 points tonight. That's a winnable gameplan. We didn't convert enough on offense to win. We don't have the offensive weapons we think we do. This team needs Mack, Funchess and Campbell healthy.

Running the ball is so overrated. It’s not the way to win football games anymore. It’s about 10 years to late

running the ball is definitely NOT overrated.  its what wins playoff games. unfortunately thats all this team can do. our passing game is anemic. if we had a better QB we’d be a top 5 offense

Clearly, Reich didn't have confidence in the passing game tonight. No downfield passing to speak of. On TV, with no all 22, it's tough to say whether the receivers weren't getting open or if Jacoby missed seeing open receivers.

Does not change the fact you in fact are a troll. 

why do you take it so personal when people talk negative about the colts . its a fan forum to talk with other colt fans about everything colts .  everything cant be good.   being able to vent with other colt fans about the team is why we come on here.  

 

no one is creating a profile commenting all week about the colts just to talk bad about them. when they play good we talk positive about them . when they play bad we vent and talk about what needs to happen to improve . that is the fun about being on a forum

I watched the whole game and we never tried to go deep except twice. Ebron once and JB made a bad throw and there was 1 pass JB threw long and Johnson ran the wrong route. It is amazing to me that not 1 time the whole game we didn't just send TY deep on a fake and go. One the best Colts WR's of all-time and he has speed never sent deep.

Guys the gameplan was not bad at all. I thought Reich called a good game based on what we can do and what we have. We have horrible wide recievers, a QB who is the definition of game manager, and the only strength on our entire team is our O line. I really didnt wanna say this but this is the kind of game Andrew Luck wouldve won. We need a QB, but i see no way of us getting one outside of a miracle in the 2nd or 3rd round.

the first game the texans stopped the run and jb beat them going deep . it seems like only on a two minute drill or when the run game doesnt work , will we throw .

 

you have to at least try and throw on 1st down cant be predictable .  can't protect jb  you have to let him try .  If he fails he fails but you have to let him fail at least not baby him.

towards the end it was bad .  mix it up with play action on first down.   you have to let jb throw let him fail then.   cant baby him all game .

I love the ground and pound game plan but never sending TY deep 1 time is ridiculous IMO. I consider deep 50 yards.

Just to be clear on Hilton, it’s not that he didn’t catch them. The DB made the play. Hilton just isn’t going to burn anybody until he’s 100% obviously if he can’t burn Joseph. And calling him for the go route in those situations was bad. Cherry picking underneath routes where a guy is open is just that, cherry picking. You could find those on any play with any quarterback from the easy chair.

    • 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.    
    • That will be a requirement from the Colts, but not all teams want that from their players.
    • Alright!   We got the band back together on the OL.     If we are in the running to sign Rivers, our odds just went up.  
    • I think he knows that if he's going to try and play at an older age there is no getting around the fact that mentoring a young QB is going to go with the territory.
