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.

:facepalm:

 

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.

    • So sounds like it’s the Colts’ year to finally make it rain in FA and sign some big name players.
    • Another reason why I think the Steelers might be ideal second trade partners is that they have a 4th Round compensation pick 13 picks later but no pick in Round 5.   Do like the Walker Little pick and hope he does slide to say the 4th and we could nab him.
    • JB is not my favorite QB. But even I would never compare him to the likes of the guys on that list. He is much more in the Hasselback group.    But I also disagree with putting Grigs on that list as well. He wasn’t a disaster or an embarrassment...he was just a disappointment in the end. A guy who couldn’t evaluate talent nearly as well as he did early in his career. And he was an unlikeable guy (which has always made me wonder how he sold Irsay on giving him the job).    But plenty of GMs fail to get there with a star QB...especially early in that QB’s career. Only one team gets to win the SB each year.    I mean...just look at Polian. He got there eventually...but he was gifted PFM...and didn’t win a playoff game until the 6th season. Grigs had won 3 by his 3rd season...and had just as many playoff appearances (3) as Polian over their first 5 seasons. Polian is a HOFer...but my point is that it’s not easy even when you get a great QB.   And as I have said before...Luck was great and my favorite player of all time...but he wasn’t quite Mahomes or Rodgers good...they are true Ferraris. He made mistakes and also didn’t exactly light it it up in January either. I think his prime would have been something to behold and maybe he would have taken his game to a new level...but injuries unfortunately derailed that (which I think many parties are to blame for...not just Grigs).   The guys on that list brought nothing to this org...Grigs at least managed to oversee a winning roster for years. A 49-31 record (.612 winning %) with a 3-3 playoff record, in 5 years, is far from a disaster. If you want to see what a true disaster looks like...it’s what has happened in HOU...where their FO has wasted a QB who (IMO) might be even better than Luck.   So far, Ballard has been superior in just about every facet. But the results are still the results. We can discount 2017...but without it the Colts are still just 28-20 (a .583 winning %) and 1-2 in the playoffs so far. Yes, he has only had Luck for one of those seasons...but that’s just another way of saying he needed Luck to win more games (to win more playoff games). And that’s the argument I always hear to vilify Grigs...that he only won because of Luck. Seems like a double standard...and not the only one.   I think most Colts fans have become huge fans of the process...and that’s great. It’s might be my favorite part of sports. But there are those that are still results-oriented...and I can understand why some might be asking what does it all without the results? This season will be huge to answering that question. 
    • Relax....i was paraphrasing a Bill Tobin quote . Tobin went off on Kiper when the Colts drafted Trev Alberta instead of Trent Dilfer.
