Looks like we could not run ball. JB completion rate is never great although e did seem to have some good deep vertical pass connections - had not seen much of that this season. Real culprit in this game appears to be porous secondary and again we miss a FG that proved to be the difference. We got 4 turnovers and still lost is a head scratcher - Team will play out the season and have to make some key decisions on how to improve for next year

My point exactly, 4 turnovers  450 yard passing, 14 point lead at one point.  Young team with a lot of inconsistencies.  The Steelers and Titans are still in the hunt and it's a consistent they have, Defense.......  Just enough offense

Totally agree with the draft pick needs, just not a QB first...  

im ok with whatever.  I’ll deal with it as it comes.

if i’m not mistaken, this draft is deep at DT, WR, and QB.  That should help.

I think we cant overlook what Moore does for the D.  Rock got hurt late too.

  CB and Wr positions were killed by injuries all year.

  The main difference between us and Pittsburgh the last 6 weeks is Pittsburgh is getting turnovers.  Lots of them.

  We did today, but gave some back.

A true franchise Quarterback would've led his team to a game winning drive. That ball he threw to Jack was so far behind Jack that he needed two extra arms to catch it. Look at how many times Andrew lead us to game winning victories. Jacoby doesn't have the talent to do that. 

 

Drew Brees led a game winning drive where JB did not. But Saints left enough time on the clock for their D to lose it, again.

That pass to Doyle was behind him. He had separation on the cross and had to stop and grab back which allowed the D to catch up. He only got one hand on it. That was purely a JB issue. If he leads Doyle in the least, or really just doesn't throw it behind him, we have a first down.

Yup, behind him. But he didn't stop either.  He kept going and the ball was behind him.  Double whammy.

this is a generous snapshot/view. The view of his front was much more telling in terms of how late and off the throw was. They showed it on replay during the broadcast. The announcers first said "JB put it on him", and then backed off that quickly when they showed the replay. he definitely slowed and had to turn/swivel back. there's no stopping a train in it's tracks. if that throw in front, it's a first down with YAC.

JB threw this as Doyle was making his break-

JB just threw it behind him, just enough to miss.  I've replayed this many times real time and slo-mo. There was barely enough time to see the ball and react after the break.  No time to 'slow down'.  It was a misplaced pass. Unfortunate at that point of the game.

It looked to me like the call came down from on high - "We want a better draft pick, so stink it up in the 4th quarter."  It seemed the team was playing, and the coaches were coaching, to lose.

Saw the pass to Doyle, behind him, it's indicative of how JB plays, timing and indeciveness.

And no touch all the same speed

Nope, the one they replayed was JB's view. And yes, very unfortunate timing. A shot in stride would have had at least 5-10 more in YAC if not FG range.

A first down at minimum... move those chains / new set of downs.

Oh don't get me wrong, I'd have been very happy with a 1st down. I just don't think the DB behind him gets to him if that pass is in stride and leading.

JB has his good points & bad points, but Jacoby Brissett didn't allow 38 points. The Colts Defense lost that game!

Defense definitely played bad, but with a good QB we win this game.

You're right JB didn't lose this game but people are burying him regardless.  That's what happens in forums.   Today they focus on a couple of missed throws as the primary reason.  I actually saw him hit on a number of deep throws as well as leading receivers quite nicely too.   All of this with street FA receivers for the most part.  We are really spoiled here with QB play.  The truth of the matter is we will probably not have an all pro QB here for quite some time let alone a MVP candidate every year.  I don't think JB has played himself out of the starting job by any means.  Ballard knows his plans for the offense fell apart this year.  My bet is he will readdress it again next year.   Will he draft a developmental guy for the future?  Most likely, after all he did lose his starting QB at the start of the season.  But who is going to be the starter next year?  I think JB is so let's hope we have better luck surrounding him with a few more playmakers that can help make him and the Colts succeed.  I think we can agree we all want that.

Winston throws for 450 but 3 pick and Colts still lose.  Let's blame JB for this lost too lol...

Their no. 1 targeted WR is who, what's his name.  Did he even play last year.  Didn't see the game but how much pressure did they get on Winston.  Did the mix up the defensive coverage.  By the stats they didn't run the ball well.  Looks like a team and coaching lost to me but, I can see JB getting buried on this forum within the next

30 min.  

You didn't watch the game but you know what led to the loss?  Wow, that is pretty amazing.

they are in the playoff hunt, but not many people think they will win a super bowl.  most of the top teams have really good QBs

There is also two other WRs at the bottom of the screen coming open on that same play. Smh. Options everywhere

Yup, it's been bad. It's not even worth taking the time to pull all-22 at this point. Those that deny the problem (missing wide open WRs) are simply disingenuous and clearly ride-or-die at this point. We've played 3 very bad passing Ds three weeks in a row, and there's simply no excuse for not hitting those guys.

These Colts are playing just bad enough to lose, last season they played just good enough to win. Biggest difference? Maybe the qb position, maybe Milton on special teams(titans special teams are playing very well this year), maybe injuries(but every team has injuries) This losing streak has been very puzzling. This will be a tough offseason because this team has been very disappointing, and then you look at that steeler team that is winning with nothing, oh well, hat's off to them.

    • Is 9 really the market for a guy ranked 10ish that isn't a involved a lot in the passing game. Only 4 RBs make 9 or more. I'd do 6/year, 7 tops. I really don't see a lot of teams backing up the Brinks truck for him. If he ended up with a team that had a poor OL, that could be a career ender.
    • Part of that is Carlson , he's most definitely the real deal and switch hitter to boot. If he doesn't start season up north he will be there before the years out.
    • Not saying you did, just pointing out Williams poor AVG vs Houston isn't really something to hang your hat on. He was top 10 in attempts per game, IIRC, 6th. Not sure what your point is on this. EE also averaged 500 yards receiving per year in 18/19 I didn't say he was as good as Mack. He does has better hands though. I do think he's better than Wilkins in terms of being well rounded. He certainly blocks better than Wilkins, and is certainly better after first contact. As far as his history, his first year was post foot surgery (Bills). He stood little chance with Saints with both Ingram and Kamara there, not to mention the Taysom Hill packages. Williams may have very well had 200+ as well had he played the whole game. We'll never know. I'm not basing my opinion on just Houston, or Jax. I watched him play in college, and thought he was good there, even in their RB by committee. He would have went higher than 5th had he not missed his last season and had foot surgery. IMO, he should have returned for his SR season. He was tagged a "sleeper" by a lot of folks.
    • More fuel to the fire.  All of the reasons make sense for most of us.  And we wouldn't have to trade a pick for a QB as well.  Our only investment would be money which we have plenty of.  I think we would probably trade JB for a pick and eliminate putting him in an uncomfortable situation.  We would be in win now mode for sure so I would expect more aggressive FA spending as well.  Hard to see them drafting a QB early with Rivers on board.  I would expect them to try and get some impact players who could contribute right away with picks 13 and 34.  OT if AC retires or DT or ER.   I'm starting to think this is going to happen.  
    • Its not broke, I agree with you and also on the  wild card
