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.

    • 1st I'm not a JB fan .    I LMAO when there were people saying we could get a 1st for him.  You all know who you are.   BUT.    JB went into camp last yr thinking he was the backup.  Yes he took the majority of the snaps, But he was practicing an offense made for Andrew.  So it wasn't playing to his strengths.  He wasn't gonna tell Frank, Hey this works better for me etc   With a full training camp designed to use his strengths,  it might be an entirely different outcome.   Before injury, while he wasn't lighting up the stats, he played well enough to win some games.  Add in the AV situation and instead of 5-2 we could have been 6-1 or 7-0    Then the injury.  Not only to him but to TY Funch and Ebrons brain injury etc   The Owner, FO and coaches have all had praise for him. Irsay said he needs more time to develop.   OK . here is a theory.  A possibility.  a hunch    They bring in Rivers for a yr or two and allow JB to develop more.    Face it, he never in his wildest dreams figured he'd be the starting QB for the Colts with AL on the team.   Now he can prepare to be the starter in the future.        
    • Really love the picks of Kinlaw, Reagor, and Harrison Bryant. We should definitely look to draft an OT in the first 3 rounds in my opinion though. Someone who has LT capability. I don't think we need a DE that early in the draft either. 
    • I don't think so. We lack serious top talent at DE and WR. And I've not seen enough from Brissett to say he could make up for those, yet anyway. 
    • And Stafford had 4446 yards 29 tds and 10 interception w 99.3 rating. Respect your perspective but based on what I've seen the past 15-20 years, I'm not interested in his services both from as fan and as football perspective. 
    • I trust Ballard if he believes in love then I do. If he doesn't and passes I'll respect that ,but will be mad if he is good.  I rather take the risk of a young qb then jacoby who has been in the nfl for 5 years and hasn't improved and played two full seasons and had 5 years working with nfl trainers to improve .  Jacoby hit his ceiling he is a middle of the pack qb like Jay Cutler.  It's either take a risk or keep going 8 and 8 at least if we take a risk and tank we can get trevor next year .
