Ty out again

Recommended Posts

I'm going to defend Chris Ballard here. Looking at the free agent wide receivers list for 2019 there is only one having a solid season John Brown. Funchess was a gamble that hasn't worked out. I'm not going to bash Ballard for taking a gamble on Funchess. When you sign a free agent either it works out or it doesn't. 

 

I would seriously take a look at signing Robby Anderson or Nelson Agholor this offseason. Amari Cooper is likely to get tagged and AJ Green is 33 hasn't seen the field this season. There is also the possibility of bringing back Funchess.

I wouldn’t say DF didn’t work out. Injuries give him a pass. They might even decide to bring him back. 

 

Bottom line this offense is going to have to be totally rebuilt next season. Right now outside of TY pascal and Campbell are the only two who should be brought back. The other 3 spots are wide open.

I don't think Ballard deserves criticism at all.

 

He knows the receiver corps isn't NFL quality, even when we had Luck at QB.  Its the main reason why he added DF and PC in the offseason, and Ebron before that.  None of those additions have had much chance to play, and Ebron blew some chances.

 

It looks like we'll be adding TE to the round 1 or 2 draft pick discussion.

We can't catch a break, might as well put TY on IR. 

 

 

TY had an incredible 2018 considering all the injuries he played through. Now no Andrew Luck and what appears to be another series of injuries , only more severe. 

 

As far as putting on IR , I think there's no benefit for the Colts to do what you infer. Just "end the misery " and can the season ?  Other than maybe picking a couple spots higher , this makes no sense unless they are sure he's done for 2019. 

 

That said , I understand your frustration. This has no doubt been a surreal year, I also think there's enough in the past 2 seasons to make one wonder if TY is breaking down.

Totally rebuilt? Sounds like you gave up on our top 5 offensive line.

He just can't stay healthy, hence the post.

No I wasn’t counting them in that. Although we do need to do something with the right side.

Yeah, I’d hope they consider bringing Funch back too. I still think he could do well here. Could probably get him on a pretty good contract, maybe.

We can still bring him back and draft another WR. That would be a pretty sweet group as long as it doesn’t end up like this year.

Idk anymore. All the injuries to key players makes this offense just too predictable and one dimensional. Hilton, Ebron and Mack all being out/done for the season just makes it even more predictable. Guys can’t get any separation in the passing game, and even when they do, it seems we’re too afraid to throw downfield. It’ll be a interesting off season.

If they lose to Tenn . there is a chance they give up on him coming back. If we win , we are said to  have a 50% chance (up from our now 30% chance) of making the playoffs. No way Colts just say "the guy can't stay healthy" and IR him.

Looks to me like we need to replace Glowinski , add a pass rusher , draft our future QB and add a good DT. With a middle first , high second and middle second , it will be tough to add WR to that wish list. Too bad FA is so ridiculous.

I think it's time to shut it down this season is over.  Too many injuries and adversity this year.  I will keep cheering each week but we would be better off with higher draft picks next year.

You don’t shut it down until you’re officially out of the race. You keep fighting until someone stops you from fighting. We’re still in this, with or without TY

WR needs to be the top one or two priorities.

Going to be tough generating a decent offense. No Campbell, Hilton, or Ebron - Yeesh 

 

Yet Rogers and many others not named TY were running wide open last week vs Houston's zone.

 

It's clear who didn't step up last week. Let's hope it's different this weekend.

I would think QB would be paramount. Brissett is just not a SB QB.

Williams did fantastic last week, and we didn't skip a beat in the running game.

Ebron has had a heavily reduced role all year from the get go.

TY was ineffective and on a pitch count last week yet we had WRs and TEs running wide open all over the place. His numbers all year have regressed as has the rest of the pass catchers.

 

We can win this, but JB needs to step up and find the open guys. And there were plenty of open guys last week vs Houston's zone. TN plays zone more than Houston, and are a bad pass defense and bad blitzing team. A decent QB can pick TN apart with just Pascal, Doyle, and Hines.

He’s aging and I think his best years are behind him.  He has one year left on his contract as well.

WR is not hard to hit in FA. You’ll have to fork over a good amount, but we likely won’t be splurging, since Ballard never does, so we would have enough to cover a WR. Also, you can find good WR in later rounds. TY is proof of that.

For everybody panicking...

It’s the Titans.

It’s not us vs the entire world.

It’s just us vs the Titans.

Simple as that.

I remember us feeling the same way before the Chiefs game, and that one turned out ok.

And whether we win or lose, life will go on. The zombies won’t start rising if we lose.

With that said...

GO COLTS

BEAT THE TITANS

And Happy Thanksgiving

    • I kind of feel like another 10M contract for Funchess cannot be justified. He already got that and he missed the whole year. I doubt he will command that much again.    I personally probably would let Walker go if he demands that much money. I don't think he's as irreplaceable as to give him 8 a year and for 5 years... that's a ton.    I like the free agency signings and I like the draft. I think it's reasonable price to move up and something I can see Ballard doing if he loves Herbert. I haven't watched Peart, I will have to take a look at him. IMO at some point during this draft we will have to pick a player that could in the future challenge for LT spot even if AC returns.
    • He is returning to Clemson for his senior season, I was looking forward to seeing him in the NFL next year.  I'm surprised he made that decision, considering the usually short career for RBs in the NFL.  However, it's his choice and I hope it turns out to be a good choice.
    • If that trade is possible, I’d offer the Bengals the rights to Andrew Luck, JB, our 2nd pick in the 2nd rd this year and a 2nd rd next year. I’d also offer them a dinner for 4, once a month at Ruth Chris steak house for a year lol. I mean if that wouldn’t seal the deal idk lol. 
    • It is more Randall Cunningham arm like, IMO, but yes, he has to see them and hit them. But that is true of every QB-WR. He does lead them to the right shoulders in short throws, if you look closely at them. He uses every bit of his physical talents to the max. and even on that drop by Darwin Thompson, the RB who did not turn around for a hot read throw that hit him in his back, the QB read was right, the throw was right, but his RB was not on the same page because he was a rookie. Those are things I am curious to see get better with time with Mahomes as QB as he works with rookies too.    It is like the long ball in baseball, everyone gets enamored with them but the base hits move the sticks, like first downs in football. Because Mahomes hits the long balls, they overshadow a lot of things he does underneath. For a 2nd year guy to build chemistry with Kelce who is thrown to as he comes out of the break, even that Tyreek Hill drop that he came out of the break, and same with Sammy Watkins for a crucial first down late in the game, he is still learning the position and I see improvement from Year 1 to Year 2 where he leads them right, IMO. So, no, the WRs are not wide open every single time till he manufactures time by moving back or moving sideways. It is like 10 yards back or 5 yards lateral, before a 30 yard throw for a 20 yard completion, that is his style, LOL. It is an adjustment for traditionalists, IMO, but once you adjust, it is enjoyable. At least it is to me. It was something we felt Luck could provide over Peyton, add that out-of-the-pocket element on top of the cerebral part but our OL issues early on made sure it was short lived.   Nothing against Tom Moore, but Andy Reid is a tad more creative play caller than Tom Moore was because of the motion he uses in the backfield. Tom Moore's offense was predicated on "we will line up the same way and run different routes out of the same formations based on how the pass catchers read the defense, which does require a lot of work between the QB and pass catchers". Andy Reid has far more motion incorporated in the back, and that is why they draft for speed they use for reverses far more than any of the playoff teams this year. In other words, Andy Reid's offense to me seems to be more motion schemes and less on perfection of execution while Tom Moore's offense was more reliant on perfection of execution, and when it was on, it was a well oiled machine and a thing of beauty to watch when Peyton was running it well. But it did not get there overnight, it took a few years.
    • What a horrible first round pick. DE is no where near our biggest need, and not only that, but this would be a huge reach. Matos is very raw and could easily be had in the mid 2nd round.    Indy needs to go DT, WR, or QB round 1. Possibly LT if Costanzo were to retire.
