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.

    • Burrow was not thought of this highly early(when Ballard was rumored to like Herbert and Love). It was kind of an avalanche that was gaining more and more mass and power the more games got played. I don't think it was until November-December that people started talking about Burrow as a no. 1 pick. He just never had that body of work before this year and a lot of his most impressive games and against best opponents were at the end of the year.        I've heard Brady thrown around, but no idea if there is anything real behind those rumors. The rumors say that they are having hard time attracting any fans to their games and their owners think getting a legend like Brady to play for several years for them might jump start their new fanbase in LA. No idea whether to believe this or not. 
    • To me being a boom or bust is kind of a plus for a QB, because the worst you can be is mediocre once that rookie contract comes to an end. I would prefer for whoever we draft to be either great or horrible and for us to know relatively quickly so we can either invest in him or move on quickly. This is part of the appeal with Love for me. The things he needs to improve are heavily coaching based and I think we will have a good idea of where on the spectrum he will end up pretty quickly. For example - if you draft him and he's not ready to start by year 2, this is a red flag and you might start looking for another one. If 2 off-seasons and 1 in-season period are not enough for your coaching staff to get him ready you either have made a mistake with the draft pick or with your coaching staff and I do have good trust in the coaching staff so... 
    • For me the tiers are more important the the specific ranking... I rank players within a tier very similarly and even though I would have preferences within them, I don't feel strongly enough to argue one over the other.    Tier 1(sell the farm for him - i.e. multiple 1sts, multiple day 2 picks, etc) Burrow   Tier 2 (trade a significant asset for him - i.e. a future 1st round pick) Tua(if I have medical guarantees he'd be alright health-wise)   Tier 3 (trade a medium level asset for him(i.e. a second, a third...) or take him at #13) Love Herbert Tua(if our medical staff cannot give you any guarantees whatsoever either way -for example, there were some reports that it might be too early before the draft to tell whether he will be good or not)   Tier 4 (second round) Eason Fromm     Tier 5 (third-fourth round) Gordon(have to do more work on him, might change his ranking) Hurts   Tier 6 (round 5-7) Tua(if the medicals come bad and there is high risk of reinjury/retirement/not full recovery/etc.) Tyler Huntley Nate Stanley     I'm still watching some QBs so that's not my final ranking.
