Colts passing game is a joke

Recommended Posts

Can’t believe we can’t get anything going in the passing game against one of the most beat up secondaries in the NFL.

 

We really need receivers that can get open quick outside of Hilton.

Does anyone even think the Texans game would be close or that we would even have half the losses we have if Andrew Luck was our quarterback?

JB doesn't throw the ball unless you are WIDE open 

 

reads too slow... 

 

need to beat other teams and hope Houston loses some games

he has zero pressure and still staring around the field like everybody is covered by a pro bowler

 

somewhere, Luck and Peyton are shaking their heads... as they had to get the ball and get it out quick with amazing reads and anticipation just to keep from getting murdered

I know you must run the ball and its important but there must be blend of running and passing and there is no passing this game. Also, when you run the ball so much Jacoby has no rythme to get into. Need to fix asap

People need to know that with Brissett at QB, you barely have any sort of vertical passing attack. 

 

The vertical passing attack is why Texans had success on offense.

Hopefully nobody really said that, that's beyond ridiculous.

I mean, all you have to do is watch Watson's eyes compared to Brissett. Watson keeps his eyes downfield and looks for the play, Brissett is all too quick to look for a bail out with his RB.

Yeah not defending him anymore. I said it week one. He holds the ball too long and is indecisive. Always pump faking and dodging tacklers before doing anything.

We lack playmakers at receiver. If we had more receiving threats I think Jacoby would do more. He is at a disadvantage in that he does not have  playmakers at receiver. He is not Luck or Manning and this team is built as a ball control offense right now.

The outrage police are out in full force....   

 

So I’ll keep it simple....   there’s still  a lot of football left to be played.   Nothing was decided tonight.   I still very much like our chances this year and in the future.

It's all on Ballard!   He did nothing to try to help us during the season.  Nothing.


Exactly

Andrew Luck won Comeback Player of the Year with a really similar set of players. Does anyone really watch Jacoby Brissett and think that's the future of the Colts? Jeez. Either A) You aren't watching him miss read after read or B) You're such a homer/biased that there's no getting thru to you anyways. 

Thank you. Really. Brissett is in his 4th year. Starter or not, he has been around the NFL long enough to show what he has and what he can eventually become. His ceiling is a game manager with some nice games sprinkled in.

We'd be 10-2 with Luck, maybe better.

Where have you been SINDF...there are lots of people that believe and welcome that.

Get us a Marvin Harrison or Reggie Wayne to complement Hilton and things would be different. JB may be holding onto the ball more because he does not have receivers who can get open

We do not have receivers who can gain separation and get downfield.  Hilton is the lone receiver right now and tonight he was not a factor

 

C'mon man. You have to throw guys open, lead receivers, give them a chance to win balls, put it where only your guy can get it. JB can't do any of that with enough consistency to be successful in this league. They're gonna draft a QB, the question is who?

I was someone who was really supportive of Brissett as the starter, but in recent weeks, I've been very unimpressed.  Two 300 yard games all season, only three 250+ yard games.  It feels like he's constantly looking for the check down right away.  Also doesn't help that the pass protection hasn't been all that great recently either.

Yikes. I’ve said it weeks ago. We’re going to desperately miss the elite QB play once Luck retired. Brissett is just ok. I literally cringe during every pass play. Doesn’t help that we have hardly any talent at WR currently. Brissett needs to get with the program. Quick decisive throws. Stop dancing in the back waiting for a receiver to get open again.

the Hilton drop was bad but man... he's made so many plays let someone else make one. he's out there playing limited snaps and not fully healed

 

Pascal was open, good design and concept... if you get the ball out FAST and on time. just because you have protection and a good pocket that doesn't mean you get to hold the ball until the house starts burning down

 

where's the QB coaching? late in game once clock was already down to 4 min and Colts were only at midfield why don't you pull out that playaction pass? No? Just let the Texans bring everyone up to the LOS and stop the run and get yourself into a 3rd and long just "hoping" someone breaks tackles... makes a great play... the backup RB's... SMH

    • Stop it.  You sound like you're just being argumentative.     DUH.  In past year's a QB would not be BPA.  This year it is, but LG isn't.   Yes, the goal was to find OL players.  That's what I said.  That's why they drafted Nelson, and why they drafted Smith after they drafted Nelson.  They ignored positional value by placing the protection of Luck as the highest priority of the 2018 draft.  Lynch never had that as a priority.   The bolded must be over your head.  It involves apportioning limited resources.  If a QBs legs can protect himself better than another QBs legs can protect himself, then you have to spend incrementally less on olinemen and free's up incrementally more on other positions that matter.    Ballard didn't want Luck to have to use his legs to protect himself, as he did with the previous olines.  Its elementary, so stop pretending its wrong..  
    • They would have, IF we had gotten a #1 CB, EDGE and WR in free agency like the Broncos did with Peyton at the helm - Talib, Ware and Sanders are your clear cut examples. Again, you need that marquee QB to build around. In that situation, Elway was clearly thinking 3 year window. If it is truly a 3 year window, the sense of urgency is shown more with free agency augmentation of existing talent, IMO.   But the 3 year window is definitely more imaginary in the fan's mind for a team devoid of talent if you only relied on the draft, which has played itself out in our record so far. If we had Luck healthy, this team probably wins the division, IMO, and in a weaker AFC, IMO, could have been in the divisional round.  That is, without FA moves. That is why I have been harping on FA as a must have to augment draft pick development to go further in the playoffs. We could have still spent our draft capital on what we did and still had similar results as the 49ers, but probably not the exact same since not enough was invested in our DL from years past that I hope Ballard changes moving forward.
    • I'm sorry but I'm not talking about throwing wild passes into coverage. BTW even though he has some of those, those are not his biggest problem. What does that even mean? This is a meaningless statement you just made. Throwing wild passes into coverage doesn't prevent a QB from being accurate or having touch. This shows poor decisionmaking, not accuracy or touch.
