jacoby 4 of 12 for 30 yards he is on fire tonight guys might hit 80 yards by the end of the game .

Holy crap...I just stumbled across Chloe’s Twitter (obvious by the twitter handle) and he/she is blaming absolutely everybody but JB. I’m only saying it because it’s kind of extreme the way she’s call

Andrew Luck enjoying retirement!

I totally believe it just with the eye test. It’s been so unbelievably bad. Not just open receivers but complete lapses in coverage.


I think it was 307 yards / game passing the last 3, going up some more.

JB 21.5 M CAP in 2020



Nothing can be done about it, except cut JB.  Saves some of it.

It seems like Flus has generally done a good job against the run, and when his blitzes have gotten home awesome (most notably against Watson last year and once this year), but in general it seems like his coverages get picked apart. I wonder if that’s not a strong suit of his in terms of coaching/game planning.

But....but.....Grigson left the team in a mess and after 3 drafts Ballard has done exactly what???


Not much, but I don’t think Ballard is a god either.  We’ll see how he does next year.  Hopefully we don’t have to set through Biscuit for another year.

I am really disheartened by this teams epic fall. At 5 and 2, they looked competive.  Honestly, they look like the worst team in the NFL after 14 weeks

I am more frustrated that they look like they have quit.  That’s not a good sign for Frank.  Even Pagano’s teams didn’t quit.

If Irsay is as serious about this team as he talks acts like, I think he’ll have to force his hand this offseason and make Ballard do some trading/signing, etc. 


We cannot continue to rely on late round draft picks and hope they pan out. 

Wants to use the cap money to pay their own. Lol!

to be honest the colts secondary is horrible  ballard missed in all his secondary picks rock looks bad hooker is bad wilson is bad  even desir is overrated . kenny moore is the only good player in the secondary the defensive line is bad to sheard is horrible autry is the only slightly good player houston is old and is not even noticeable most of the game the only strength is linebackers have good depth  .  we need full secondary rebuild and defensive line rebuild and wrs rebuild to and new QB

It's very relevant. Last year the same D with the same scheme was much more effective because time of possession didn't stress and wear out the D. We've even added upgrades to the D. When you O goes 3 and out most drives, it's incredibly wearing on a D. If you ever played football you know that.

That's what I said.  3 and outs are like turnovers.   (In fact, I'm the only one here who says it). We didn't go 3 and out much early in the year.


Your claim of upgrades being added is purely judgmental.  You have no basis for it. 


In fact, this team looked the same last year against KC, which was a SB contender then, even with Luck at QB.  That says that QB play isn't very important.

    • Ballard didn't say it was definite.   He didn't rule it out.   He just said as of this minute.    I think he's hoping to find out in April and May.      He still might end up deciding Eason is OK as the back-up.   I was only trying to impress upon those in the "Throw Jacob Eason in and see what we have" crowd that Ballard has crushed that dream for 2021.    But I wouldn't rule out 2022....  at least not yet.  
    • TY - 2Y/22M - he can still play but he’s not Tyreek Hill taking the top of defenses anymore, and with his disappearing act at the beginning of the year I’m afraid to sign him any longer or with too much guaranteed. Partly for sentimental reasons I want him to stay, but I do think he’s still got some juice.    Mack - 1Y/1M - Likable player but due to his position and injury, no way can I justify giving him much more than vet minimum.    Houston - 1Y/8M - Fell off a lot this year compared to his first year. Still our best edge player, basically by default and I’d be hoping we can get a more 2019 performance out of him at arguably our weakest position on the team.    Autry - Walk. He will price himself out with an inflated sense of value because he’s gotten decent sack numbers, but he is the definition of JAG and I’d only keep him if he agreed to a minimum contract.    Rhodes - 1Y/6M - He was a stud this year. If we could guarantee that he won’t revert back to his last two years in Minnesota I would be willing to go longer and higher. With how much he fell off after getting paid the first time, I’m not giving him a long term deal.    Walker - 1Y/2M - He was playing a very small percentage of downs at the end of the year so I’m keeping him less based on ability and more based on leadership and football savvy.    Hooker - Walk. Both sides need to just move on. I’d keep him at minimum too but I think both sides want a fresh start. Also a little miscast in the current defense so no reason to force a square peg into a round hole.    Brissett - 1Y/5M - Too big of a fan of Brissett as a man to want to see him leave. I don’t want him starting but he’s a very solid backup and compared to the 20M we gave him last year, I can live with his salary being at 1/4 of that this year.    Pascal and MAC both tendered at 2.24M. I want to bring in Kenny Golladay or Allen Robinson and Pascal is JAG so he’s not falling into my future plans much. I’m a big fan of MAC and I wouldn’t mind seeing him play the Jack Doyle role. He’s a better blocker, has better hands, and is more explosive.    I may be lowballing some guys but I’d hate to fall into the trap of overvaluing our guys and keeping them just because you want to keep your own. Unfortunately, I think the five most important positions on the team also coincide with our five weakest positions on the team; QB, WR, CB, DE, and LT. Fortunately we’ve got a good cap situation and this is the perfect year to be needing a QB. 
    • If we let Walker Walk, (and I think it’s likely) it’s not because we want an upgrade.   It’s because we simply don’t play him enough.   I think East Street has the numbers in snaps, but I think Walker is roughly playing 25-30 percent of the snaps.   That’s it.    We can't pay him enough for that.   Some other team will PLAY him more so they will PAY him more.    When Walker is off the field, we are either playing a 4-2-5 or a 4-1-6.   Leonard plays basically 100 percent of the snaps and I think Oke is about 55-60 percent.     There is a method to our madness.  
    • I'm surprised some folks want to resign Walker. Imo we definitely need an upgrade.... I'd let him walk.
    • Colts have won one playoff game in 6 seasons. Some more losing seasons and this team is no longer even in the top half of NFL franchises. They would be mostly irrelevant. I can’t imagine Irsay going for that.   Ballard is definitely safe...but this is year 5 and I am assuming there is a bit more urgency than just waiting for the perfect opportunity to come along.
