Just listened to Kevin Bowens podcast, 2nd sentence out of his mouth:

 

This team can't close, this team has no killer instinct. 

 

Now where have I heard that before? 

Some people might say injuries and Luck retiring out of nowhere hurt this team more than a lack of "killer instinct." 

Also leading the NFL in missed field goals doesn't help either.

Who's to say Kelly wins the way this team is playing.

Good point. If he goes out and hits all his targets in the face, even if they drop all of them, shows good judgement and gets into recievers face for dropping the ball, then sign him up.

What did people expect when Luck retired 2 weeks before the season? I predicted 8-8 before the season started in here. Thinking JB could be average to maybe above average but he wasn't Luck. I had 11-5 with Luck. When we got off to the 5-2 start I was pleasantly surprised, then players started dropping like flies due to injury. JB injuring his knee at Pitt really was bad, we lost that game and then to Miami without him. TY being out and playing injured has been killing this team as well.

Ya if he hits all his targets in the face then that's already an upgrade over Brissett.

Awe... Ive missed all these roaches that scurry when the lights are on lol...

 

Good thing Colts left the lights off the past few weeks... otherwise these posters may have finally left for good! We couldnt have that!

 

Then where would we get our daily dose of laughter from?

I’ve seen some mock drafts that have the Oregon kid falling to the Colts and that was before this loss.  If the Colts are going to get a QB watching what the Bengals do at number will be big.  If they take Young out of OSU number one a QB will probably slip to the Colts.  If they take Burrow the Colts will may have to go up and get one if they want one.

 

So here's a theoretical: if the Bengals, in the course of the off-season, walk away from Andy Dalton, would the Colts be interested in spending some cash on a "hired gun" like him? Could be an interesting move, especially if the Colts also drafted a young QB to be mentored by Dalton/Brissett...

I trust Ballard has plenty of scouting tape on all the QBs. I can see him seeing a QB with that early  second round pick

Nuts to the 2nd rounder!

If we are taking a QB, we want the highest 1st rounder possible...ransom the farm to move up.

I thought our non-felon to felon ratio was a little off... 

Good scouting bud. Gonna start working on my "killer instinct" now.

Kenny Moore and Darius Leonard are such good guys I think their offsetting felon ratio is at least 3:1 :Cry:

I raised the question early into the 2018 season, "win now or"? Had one year of a top 5 pick (moved to 6 and an all pro selection) then went 11-5 and back to late 20's picking. Mediocre is almost worst than being just plain bad.. No Andrew Luck has exposed A LOT of holes on this team.

No one wants to win more than Frank Reich and Chris Ballard.    If he was better than Brissett he would be at least active for games

same coaches that put hoyer in and same GM that brought in tolzien 

 

im surprised so many people make generic "i trust the coaches" comments.  they make mistakes like everyone else

They make mistakes far less often than fans would

who says they are any good at knowing one way or the other? I havent seen a lot of evidence of any proof one way or the other.

There are two very different coaching skillsets. The first relates to game planning, strategy and actually playing the game of football. The second is effective player development. Some very talented players figure it out for themselves, but that is rare. Others need to be "coached", guided by a knowledgeable mentor to develop good habits and routines. The latter takes time and hard work. It seems to this fan that either not enough work is being put into the effort, or we are not very efficient at player development. Injuries obviously hamper our development, and someone with actual talent and knowledge re: preventing injuries needs to be brought on board.

they were pretty good at both last year, now it seems like they have regressed on both fronts

 

maybe it was just luck making them seem better

The GM's and coaches definitely know "more" than fans, but I'm not sure the results are not always right.   You see many teams that are so bad for years and years.   I have to think a group of "fans" could have done a better job.

fans would probably struggle to coach a game, but personnel stuff is different.  you could have thrown darts at a draft board and done better than some teams

There is no accountability on this team. No excuse to get torched from Winston when his top WR is out of the game. Our defense gave Winston easy completions the entire game. I keep hearing how Eberflus is a future HC lol. 

 

And what would you need to see to determine there is accountability.  If someone got fired would that satisfy you that accountability has been established?  Or maybe fine the entire defense - including the coaches - since there is no way Winston could have torched us if there was accountability?

 

What is it?

Like I said, everyone's scale is different. I don't have as many levels, probably 3 levels. Mediocre, average'ish (most of the league) and good teams.

 

Mediocre to me means bottom of the barrel bonafide top 3 in the draft type bad, this team is far from that is my view honestly. 

me·di·o·cre

/ˌmēdēˈōkər/

adjective

of only moderate quality; not very good.

"a mediocre actor"

 

I think that word pretty well describes a team like the Colts are right now. Not "Cincinnati bad" or "Miami bad". Just good enough to end up in a "mediocre" draft position, and not bad enough to score a top-5 or even a top-10 prospect. It's going to be a long, hard slog crawling out of this hole, and even harder without a franchise QB.

Being middle of the road isn't going to be of much value in trying to get a QB, if that's even a thing (it probably should be, but don't be shocked if it's not).

 

I feel like we're watching a slow rolling undoing of future potential and we're kind of ending up where we were under Grigson and Pagano when they go fired, for different reasons. They had Luck but a bottom barrel roster. Ballard and Reich have a passable roster (when healthy) but QB issues. Both are going to result in hovering around 8-8 and that's no mans land when it comes to fixing big issues through the top of the draft.

    • Dude, watch his whole 21 highlight tape. He runs just about every route, including some advanced routes like sails. It's Reich's choice and frequency of routes/calls. Again, he had very high grades in every facet. It's like you're trying to find something, or making stuff up.    Ebron was faster 4.6 than MAC 4.75. So simple question? Did you see MAC have good separation? Yes, you did. If you have an elite catch rate, it's not a thing.....   To add, Ebron and MAC are different types of TEs. MAC is 6-6 and is huge, but still runs very well for that size.  Ebron stunk at blocking, had a huge drop problem. MAC is great at blocking and has a low drop %.  Compare their stats from last year. MAC kills him in terms of quality and %s. Much higher catch %, much lower drop %, much higher AVG. Much better YAC/R. Much better passer rating when targeted.   Ebron was great that year because Indy totally changed the way he was used. They upped his RZ targets big time, put him in different routes, and Luck thru outside his body.  You're making stuff up. He had more targets than Doyle. Was there a lack of confidence in Doyle lol. He had less targets than Burton. Did they have most confidence in Burton, who had the worst quality stats? You're not making a lot of sense.  Dude, your logic is horrible. Huge drop problem in practices, best catch rate on the team in games....... makes perfect sense lol Throwing to his gut has zero to do with his radius. Throw it higher or out in front for goodness sake. 
    • Sigmund Freud never seen Cigar the race horse. 
    • Man I just want to see Wentz tossing the ball to some of our wideouts!
    • Well it would be surprising if a 31 year old player with an injury history like Doyle wasn't diminishing.     Burton is able to run routes that Doyle and MAC can't, much better route runner.  Like you wouldn't even try certain plays to Doyle or MAC like you would Burton.  There were a lot of difficult type of throws to TB.  Out of context catch percentage doesn't really reveal too much.     For instance, do you think JT is a better receiver than Hines?  No, no one sentient does.  But he has a higher catch percentage because the routes he runs are not ones that require much skill as a route runner or a pass catcher.
