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.

It doesn’t look like there is going to be many in FA.  Ballard took Campbell in the second and it’s  time to take another in the first or second.  We have built a pretty great defense. Now it’s time to add some skill players on offense.

I don't see how Ballard can afford not to be more aggressive in the WR market next off season, instead of looking for hard bargains 

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

Oh. OK, scrap them  and rebuild. You're right. My bad.

I didn't say that but the whole right side is an issue.  Glowinski , Smith . Move Smith inside,  replace Glowinski.  Smith doesn't have the feet for tackle and Glow is a guy should be a backup on an elite line.

Hehe..I did on tuesday. Titans +2.5...It's now +1

 

 

Yeah , hard to figure the Colts will win the way watching the two teams play lately. But thing with the colts is they seem to play well when you least expect it ?

 

I made my first bet all year .. Buff +6.5. Also took them even at +$240.

 

 I like under 43.5 in our game.

The premise of the this we need to totally rebuild the offense. I disagreed as our OL is judged by many so called experts as a top five unit. You disagreed that our OL is top five. I would guess there is about 30 teams in the NFL that would trade OLs with the Colts.  End of story.

Watch out for the stones flying your way. Many fans have stated their fine with this mediocre wr/TE group because Cain and fountain will ball out next year.

You  are delusional. But carry on.  Not this year. Inconsistent . Outsiders has them 9th , that sounds about right.

The oline doesn’t need rebuilt. We need to move smith back to guard and look for another RT. We also need to think of the future without AC and start planning. Kelly and big Q are at the top of their positions. Having a new QB has also led to a some of the issues.

I wouldn't put too much faith in the Titans either.  They don't always show out in these big games.

While I would prefer nonsense to get a look at RG, and agree that Glow is a weak link, nonsense just got honorable mention from PFF and is graded as the 11th best OT regardless of side. And every OL has a "weak link". Overall we do have a top 5 OL and is rated/ranked by most services as such.

 

In addition, if JB didn't have such a high time to throw (he's bottom 5), the OL would likely be ranked even higher. 

 

Here's what PFF has to say on nonsense.

 

Quote

 

OT Braden Smith

In his first full season as an offensive tackle, Smith ranks as PFF's 11th overall tackle (75.0). He has been a reliable presence, playing all 768 of the Colts' offensive snaps. He continues working on his pass blocking, with a grade of 64.1 in that category, but has been a high-quality run blocker, ranking fourth in the NFL among tackles (82.3).

With Smith holding down the right side of the line, the Colts have done very well on the ground in 2019. They rank third in the league at 144.2 yards per game, with eight 100-yard rushing performances in 11 games. That includes five games with at least 150 yards, four with at least 175 and two with at least 200.

That's all well and good but I don't put any stock in PFF , sorry. This line isn't performing near as well as last season. We are just going to agree to disagree.  They look great a couple weeks , Chiefs , Jags (but who doesn't and the Chiefs D is an injury riddled mess everybody scores on ) and get physically manhandled others , Raiders ,  Steelers , Broncos ) . Inconsistent.  Given up already more sacks than last year a couple weeks ago  , and blaming Jacoby is convenient,  but inaccurate to a large extent imo. Smith is a turnstile and Glow can be had on the pass rush.

It's not just PFF. NextGen and ESPN as well.... 

 

I guess all of them are wrong lol... But I'm sure you've watched and graded all the other teams.

I mean, JB has had the 6th longest time from the snap to throw this year (edited after I looked it up).

 

I don’t think Glow is very good either, and Braden has struggled at times, even AC has, but it’s been better than most OL’s around the league.

It is. And I agree 9th is about right( Outsiders ) . Few lines great all the way across. Jacoby has been handing the ball off 60, 65  percent of the time , so I don't think it's all on him. They simply aren't as good this year .

When a QB has both a high time to throw, AND is not effective passing, it makes it much harder on the OL pass blocking (holding it longer), and run blocking (since teams are keying more on the run).

 

Obviously your expertise trumps all the pros and services, so what do you think the JB impact has on the OL's performance?

Yeah, I said it at the beginning of the year, that we would see way more sacks this year than last. And part of that is because allowing only 18 sacks is absurd, but mostly because Luck got the ball out a lot faster than I figured Brissett would be able to do.

 

I talked about possible OL regression as much as anybody, but they’ve done very well under the circumstances.

Yup. All this "OL is bad" talk is pretty hilarious. Just like Holder was blaming Nelson for getting shoved back into Brissett last week....  He held the block for like 7 seconds lol.... He was giving ground purposefully because any OL knows you have to maintain separation to counter swim and/or spin moves by the DL.

7 seconds...

Yup. And oh, don’t even get me started on Holder. His disparaging tweet about Jordan Love’s stats recently?  Even though he admitted he doesn’t follow college football/doesn’t know his situation. I could rant on and on about Holder, dude is my least favorite Colts reporter. And not even as a writer, he’s fine, but holier than thou attitude toward any sort of criticism.

I don't care for Holder at all, but I just checked and it wasn't him (on the OL). Had to be fair lol...It was Ayello, who was actually fair once called out.

 

It was Holder though who was dismissing JB's performance vs Houston because of the magical zone D that irritated me most recently. On Love, yes, he really needs to do his homework before opening his twitter up...

We also took the Bills +7 and the moneyline +245....This game kept us at breaking even for the Thanksgiving games. Lost the under on the Bears/Lions game which cost us a 4 game parlay..Crap!!  I also like the under on the Colts game.

What do you mean we are done for the season?  Have some faith!  There are still many good players on this team and they aren't quitting! Duh!  Cheer on your Colts and think positive!!

Smith's weakness is against speed rushers he can't put his hands on them

Turay = on IR after 5 games, thus 11 games

Lewis = 3 games, although it's felt like more

 

Losing Turay really sucked. I really like him and he was starting to tear it up. Hope he comes back in a big way next year

Which is why he needs to move back to guard.

Smith would do well at guard I think. But who do we get to play tackle?

    • Fair point.   No quibble.       
    • I could easily be wrong about this,  but I think you're high on Nelson, Leonard and Smith.    Maybe not by a lot,  but by enough that the Colts will have more money left than you think.   ***I think Q can pick the length of his deal.   I'm guessing he'll have the following options.  4/60 (15) or 5/80 (16) or 6/102. (17) ***I think Leonard is looking at roughly   4/56 (14)  5/75. (15) ***I think Smith is looking at                    4/50 (12.5)  5/65 (13)   The keys to all three deals are....   the signing bonus and the amount guaranteed at signing --- these two are often confused, but they are not the same.     
    • I'm not saying you don't need speed and/or power. I'm just pointing out college players rely on it too often because it works in college, but then find out without technique their not as efficient.
    • OK......      I'm not speaking to Basham at all.    Have seen zero film on him.   I was only trying to say that DL's using speed and/or power in the NFL have worked since the league began.    PLayers who don't with at least one of them typically don't last long in the NFL.    The ones who can win with both have long, successful careers.   More to the point, our whole defense is built on speed.   Especially on the defensive front.   Look at our DE's.   Houston uses both speed and power.    Autry uses both as he plays DE and DT.   Turay is a speed guy.   Banogu is a speed guy.   Lewis, is a bit like Autry in that he plays both DE and DT.    He's trying to use both to win.    We're trying to find DL who win with their first step.  Get even on step 2,  and pass the OL on step 3.       Do the D-Lineman need to develop better hand moves -- absolutely.   100 percent.   That's why Ballard says young DL often need 2-3 years to figure things out.    He just noted Jerry Hughes who didn't blossom until Year 4 with Buffalo.   We gave up on him too soon.    Sorry,  don't mean to belabor the point,  I wanted to read your response before I posted what I needed to say....   Thanks...
