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.

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

    • Luck and Manning had considerably more bank (contract and endorsements), and considerably more post NFL options. It's just not comparable to AC's financial situation. Sure he could live comfortably on what he has, but I think you're undervaluing what would more than double his net worth and take him to a new level from a financial security perspective. 
    • Hes been the same since college.  His draft preview stated so.  Hes the common denominator.  
    • Williams was pretty good when given the opportunity.  Wouldn't doubt if another team gets him and gives him more playing time.  
    • Tua's health is still the X factor right now.  Here is a scouting report (by a real respected scout) overview of 5 QB's practice days at the Senior Bowl recently.  Sorry for length:   South team QB's   Tuesday- QB Justin Herbert, Oregon Herbert looked phenomenal on Tuesday displaying all the physical tools and leadership skills necessary for the next level. He was right on the money with many of his throws and his pass placement was off the charts. He made plays in and out of the pocket, displayed a next level arm and great athleticism. His incomplete passes were more about drops by receivers rather than missed throws on his part. And when his receivers dropped a pass Herbert was there to take charge. Terrific day by the Oregon quarterback.   Wednesday- QB Justin Herbert, Oregon It was another effective day for Herbert, though one could make the argument he was slightly better yesterday. He was right on the money with his throws and showed terrific pass placement. I don’t think Herbert had as many dynamic throws today, but he also had fewer errant passes and misses. Again, he displayed a good degree of leadership throughout the entire session.   Thursday- QB Justin Herbert, Oregon Thursday was another terrific practice for Herbert. While he probably had more misses Thursday than any of the previous two days, he consistently showed the ability to drop the ball in the bucket and place passes where only his target could come away with the reception.   Tuesday- QB Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma Hurts had his struggles today, especially early on. He was often late delivering passes and receivers were waiting for the ball to arrive. Several of his attempts had pass catchers leaving their feet to grab the pass from midair. I got the idea watching Hurts, he is much more comfortable playing in Oklahoma’s wide open system and it’s going to take some adjustment to get accustomed to an NFL type of scheme.   Wednesday- QB Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma If Hurts struggled on Tuesday, he was just outright bad on Wednesday. Excluding one terrific pass he placed in the hands of Stephen Sullivan down the left sideline, Hurts was off the mark all day. He missed wide open receivers throwing against air and put pass catchers in perilous positions when they were covered.   Thursday- QB Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma Thursday was a slightly better day for Hurts, and it was quite possibly his best practice of the week. He showed better accuracy and throws a catchable ball, but he still forced too many passes and missed a number of open receivers.   North team QB's Tuesday- QB Jordan Love, Utah State Love did not have quite the day of Justin Herbert but he wasn’t far behind. He made several magnificent passes throughout the day and drew a lot of praise from the scouts around me. He has a super quick, super-efficient release, a live arm and showed some beautiful pass placement. There were a couple of passes that got away from him and he was not quite as effective on the move compared to Herbert, but it was an “A” day for Love.   Wednesday- QB Jordan Love, Utah State Love had another terrific day on Wednesday. While one could argue he was more inconsistent than Day 1, most of his throws were on the mark and delivered with great speed, and most of the time he made really good decisions   Thursday- QB Jordan Love, Utah State Thursday was another solid day for Love, although one could argue he was not as effective as he was the prior two practices. He displayed a big-league arm and got the ball through tight windows, but he also made some questionable throws that included one bad interception.   Tuesday- QB Anthony Gordon, Washington State Gordon displayed a lot of next level physical skills and possesses an NFL arm. He also needs a lot of work on his game. While he showed the ability to fire the ball into targets, his pass placement and accuracy was all over the place. When Gordon needed to drop a ball into the tight window, he was unable.   Wednesday- QB Anthony Gordon, Washington State While Gordon has his moments on Wednesday, for the most part he showed a lot of inconsistency. He did a better job placing throws and dropping them into targets’ hands today, but all too often he was off the mark and had receivers leaving their feet or adjusting backwards to grab the ball from the air.   Thursday- QB Anthony Gordon, Washington State Gordon was better Thursday than he was the prior two practices. He showed better accuracy and decision-making. He was not as hesitant as he was during Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s sessions. Tuesday- QB Shea Patterson, Michigan Patterson showed much of the same today that we he showed the past two years- a lot of inconsistency. He made a few nice throws but for the most part was late delivering the ball and was all over the place with his throws.   Wednesday- QB Shea Patterson, Michigan It was not a good day for Patterson, as his practice bordered on terrible. He made one terrific pass downfield, which was promptly dropped by Antonio Gandy-Golden, but just about every other throw all day was wide of the mark. Too many times his receivers had almost no chance to catch the ball as Patterson was missing so badly.   Thursday- QB Shea Patterson, Michigan Thursday was hands down Patterson’s best practice of the week. He was much more accurate and decisive, and while he had a few misses, he was mostly on the mark with his throws all day.
    • Mayok had a interview and like ballard stressed DT. When you already have a QB as good as Carr It would be dumb to pass on a guy like Kinlaw.
