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.

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.

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 

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.

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?

    • Yeah, I don't know if Jones would want Brissett.  Ballard should at least reach out.    I'd be happy if we could get a 4th or 5th round pick for him.   However, he may have more value for us this season.  He's good insurance for us.  Fitz would be the best option for the Cowboys.    
    • Just what makes you think Jerry Jones is interested in Brissett?  Fitz or Taylor seem more like it IMO.
    • Minshew completing 19 of his 20 passes was a   huge part of it.   I'd say 45% Reich play-calling would be 25% responsible for the loss.    Rivers INT's were 20% responsible for the loss. 10% would be others (missed field goal, Hilton drops ect.).
    • I hate to see any player get hurt in the NFL.  But I figured if a team got desperate at QB, it would be the perfect time to dump Jacoby Brissett for a draft pick.  The Cowboys are in trouble likely and it would be a perfect time to move Brissett.  He is gone at the end of the year anyways so might as well get something out of him, since they likely won't get a comp pick if he signs somewhere else since we will sign free agents ourselves.  
    • but he is on another team, didn’t get developed here. Anderson and Jerry Hughes would be other examples of guys who developed away from us.  yeah I get it, I’m very stubborn once irritated and just what the league did at the beginning of the season has really frustrated me. They went with the wind of what voice screamed loudest and alienated many of the supporters who actually spent money on the games. Won’t be me anymore for along time most likely. Heck, Sears ticked me off once, never went back. That was 18 years ago lol.  just reading, it sounds like a lot of those pressures from AQM and Autry cane in the first few games and them died off? Could be they are or have just been used more than their bodies are capable of performing at that same high level? I suppose Houston is suffering from the same individual stat lines as Buckner has. Gets good push and pressure but isn’t getting home to make the big impact play. That is what I’ve heard on the Kevin Bowen podcast for Buckner. While he is doing what others hadn’t been able to do and he is opening up opportunities for others, he hasn’t hit the sack totals and individual stat lines that all pro players will get. Are we getting those seal plays from the edges from our Lb’ers or DE’s that we were getting with Sheard or are these QB’s and Rb’s slipping out?  agree. Didn’t we get lots more pressure from Leonard last season? I think the defense planned on Turay and Lewis being involved in this defense. Along with the addition of Buckner, having Turay and Lewis at rush end could have been the game plan but injuries and whatever is going on with Lewis so far happens. I see that Lewis is getting more reps and more praise so hopefully that’s not just coaching motivation and he is actually flashing on the field now. Would be nice to get production from him.
