Wow ... the ultimate hold.

Recommended Posts

I can't believe no one has mentioned the insane hold on Winstons last TD pass. I believe it was Sheard that it was performed on. I really had mixed emotions on whether I wanted a win or a loss, but honest to God that hols was actually comical. O lineman on the left side of the line , grabbed Sheard's jersey as he was blowing by. He held on and dragged him down from behind , hanging on to the jersey for dear life. If you have the game taped , have a look. It's insane a player actually got away with that.

Autrey got tackled on that play too.

Not sure if we're taking about the same play, but on one of those last plays Autry literally got tackled.

 

It's the NFL today.

I saw it. It may have been on Autry.  It was on the back shoulder throw.  Didn't know a jersey could stretch that far.  It was that blatant.

You guys could be correct... it may have not been Sheard.

You were correct. It was obvious and should have been called.

I’m sure our Secondary would have  just let them score or on the next play anyway 

 

Yeah .. I'm just astounded that that play could possibly go undetected. We're better off losing as 3-4 spots in the draft can be pretty big.

NFL has been absolute terrible this season with refs and they just got a new CBA. They missed blatant holds and by that I mean outstretched arms and wouldn't call, like the Bucs would go a game without a hold on Offense is crap.

Everyone saw it.  It wasnt called, why bring it up?  Spilt milk.  Holding in the trenches is commonplace.  Sometimes called, this case not.  Incredibly obvious though, you're right about that. 

 

I'm more concerned there are mixed emotions about winning a professional sporting event.......

That was awful and as much as I would like to blame the refs you can’t when you win the turnover battle 4 to 1 score 35 points and have far fewer flags on the game as a whole.  Bad missed call but least of the Colts worries right now.

Next time I'll check with you before I post . I brought it up as it's far from "common place" for a player to be dragged to the ground by his jersey and not see it called. No Spilt milk nor do I even blame the refs for the loss. Was well officiated other than that crazy no call.

So sensitive.  I just answered why I thought nobody was mentioning it. 

 

If we brought up every no call holding penalty across 32 teams every weekend (byes outstanding) we'd never cover anything else.  And that obvious no call is unfortunately far from commonplace.

 

Please, No need to check with me, I'm just a normal dude watching the same games you are.  Post whatever youd like, i actually enjoy reading them.  I actually enjoyed yours enough to respond.

 

Getting in a twist if someone engages with your opinion is a recipe for frustration tho.

I agree almost like we were destined to lose

I brought it up as IMO this was ridiculously blatant .. actually funny. I seriously replayed it 3-4 times and laughed . This is a Colt's forum and bringing up a player being yanked to the ground from behind by his jersey on the game winning play is worth mentioning ... no ?

    • Dude...   This was THE BEST post I have ever seen from you.  I wish there was a way to use multiple reactions, because I laughed, I cried, I liked, and I thank you for posting this.     Every single sentence was perfect.  ^This^ is the REAL @Jared Cisneros we all know and love!  
    • I don't see him coming back but then again I was sure he wouldn't retire before the 2019 season either. Luck is hard to figure out.
    • I appreciate it Lucky. Nothing wrong with being Dodds, he still has a lot of say and has his voice heard. Decisions can be tough sometimes and it takes someone willing to accept credit and blame for them, especially at an NFL level. Ballard has done that exceptionally, and most of the things he's done deserve a lot of credit, and I'm happy I get a little peek at what the guys do in scouting players every year.    I should give Reich a break though, he's trying to do what's best for the team. I just wish he was more of a risk-taker sometimes. However, I understand with Luck retiring it was tough on everybody. I think this year we can at least compete and with some luck (no pun intended), possibly make or win a SB. Our team has a lot of great talent (starting and depth), and that's something we haven't been able to say since the Polian days!
    • I guess that explains some things.  And I don't mean that as an insult, I just didn't know that about you.  I'm realizing I might have been looking at some of your previous posts over the years in the wrong light.  No judgement.  Sorry if I ever came across as harsh (or a straight-up donkey) in the past.  I just didn't know you as well as I thought I did.    I'll try to be more understanding going forward, even when we disagree about something.   (maybe @coltsfeva feels the same, I don't know.  If I'm not mistaken, there's been some back-and-forth between you two in the past...  I might be thinking of a different member, if so: apologies.  )   I was speaking kinda specifically about Ballard vs Dodds, ie: General Manager vs Assistant General Manager.  If I had a choice, I would choose Assistant General Manager (and not Assistant TO the General Manager for all you Office fans) ev-er-y time.  Being the General Manager is just not my gig.     And hopefully you'll be more understanding going forward of people in Ballards' position where dealing with people is basically the whole premise of their job.  If they didn't draft the guy you wanted or sign the FA you wanted, or even achieve the goals you wanted record-wise, please realize how much else they had to deal with on an inter-personal level that you don't have to deal with on a day-to-day basis.  Because I've been there, and it's beyond stressful trying to get 10-20 people to do their job, much less trying to get 50-100 people to their job better than the the other 50-100 on the other sideline...  
    • Why are you only going by last season?? Of course he was bad last season but he is now 47 years old. In 2006 with us he made 89.3% of his FG's and 100% of his extra points. He was also 5-5 in the playoffs at Baltimore and we won the SB. I am taking that kicker over anyone. Using last season as a gauge makes no sense. Vinny also had a few years in NE where he made over 90% of his FG's and 100% of his extra points. Using last year is nonsense.
