Way too many whiny Colts fans in this forum.

Whine when we lose and whine when we win. 

Thin skinned and soft fans are a bore. 

I agree.

People seem to always connect critiquing JB with not being able to enjoy a win. Both are possible. And I say that as having said nothing critical of JB yet today.

Some WR dropped passes today. If just the couple had been caught this would of been a nice balanced game from all three phases.

It's OK to be factual. The truth is.

 

Great win. One of two wins where it wasn't close, and that's great.

By unit..

STs:  (Hines specifically) was off the charts and a breath of fresh air

Pass D: DL and DBs finally got it together and did awesome 5 sacks and 3 INTs even though it was against a first time starter/rook/3rd stringer.

Rush D: limited Carolina to under 100

Rushing O: was great (200+ yards, and Mack hit 1000).

Passing o: was anemic (119 total yards and 0 passing TDs).

 

Overall, nice win to close out home games, but being eliminated from post season and doubts about the O don't magically go away because we beat a bad team with a 3rd string rook starting for the first time. It is what it is.

Why would anyone want to critique JB when we win 100-0, that is the real question.

Some of us have lurked in this forum since the Peyton era and I have to agree with Crazy colt ...there is a constant negative droning these days.

The entire team gets critiqued all year long regardless of wins/losses. If not, every W would just be a bunch of

People criticize the DBs when they stink in a win, same with AV missing in a win. QB isn't an immunity card. And the OL and WRs have been bagged on plenty to deflect from JB.

 

There's also individuals or units that deserve praise in losses. It's not just a "team" win or loss all the time.

Hines also took two offensive drives away from the offense. So you do have to put that in perspective.

Kinda.... Takes very little of the clock. Our D also gave our O 3 extra drives if you want to look at it that way. Hines also gave the O a very short field that resulted in a TD.

Jacoby has three pretty good passes that were dropped. If those had been caught his stats would of looked better. We were pretty balanced If those had been caught. I am still going to root like crazy next year if he starts.  I am not going to be negative like a lot of people. Getting everyone healthy and adding a WR with a stud DT is going to improve this team no matter who is the QB.

I only recall two drops. Regardless, add a few completions and 20 or 30 yards. That takes him to 60ish % completion, and 150 yards. The worst average in the league (YPG) is 167...

I really don’t care right now. What happened is over. Next year is a different season. Why be so negative.

I counted two drops too, and made it a point to count drops today.

You said we would have been balanced had he not had those drops. 150 yards is not balanced. Calling out bad hot takes is not being negative. It's being factual.

Chloe is probably counting that high heater that went to either Pascal or Inman (can't remember who). That was simply a bad pass that the WR did good to even get near it.

Bottom line I have no control of what happens next year. I am a colts fan and be excited for this team no matter who is the QB.

Simply Genius!

    • LOL. Did you watch any of the games last season?   Also, Okereke is 6-1, 235 lbs, basically the same size as Patrick Willis and Luke Keuchly, except with longer arms and also runs a 4.58 40. I’d take the increased arm length and athleticism over 0.25 centimeters in height any day. 
    • I think S depth may trump OL depth right now.  Hooker's battled injuries most of his career and the fact he wasn't extended and given some of Ballard's pressers (basically saying Hooker's play dropped off throughout the year in 2019 and he wasn't playing to his level of expectations) and the fact we drafted Blackmon in Rd 3 lead me to believe the FO/Coaching Staff is getting ready to move on from him.     Willis played well as a rookie, but I still see him as a guy who is just about at his ceiling given his limited athleticism.  Rutledge looks like a playmaker but he went undrafted for a reason and he's a rookie coming from a small school, so it'd be hard to expect him to adjust to the NFL right away, especially given this weird off season.  I like Odum more as a STer than a full-time starting safety should we have an injury to Hooker or Willis. Then Tell, while I don't blame him, opting out, IMO, was a big blow to our entire secondary as he was developing nicely at CB but has the versatility to play S if needed (I don't know any of our current corners have that ability, maybe Rhodes).     OL depth is still concerning, but it sounds like Pinter is really impressing coaches as a rookie and I think Clark is versatile enough to be a solid stop gap at G or T if needed.  Hopefully Patterson is back to full health as a backup C (sounds like Big Q or Pinter would be next in line at C if needed).  I guess, I think we're so strong with our starting OL (with Glowinski being the weak link, but not really that weak of a link) that I feel like a single replacement there would not be as devastating to one of our starting S going down right now.  Regardless, it'd be nice to have a few more guys competing across the OL.
    • It has to be odd signing FAs now, since teams aren't allowed to work them out.  I guess one would hope that these guys have been keeping themselves in shape throughout the offseason, but it'd still be nice to be able to work them out before signing them.   Safety now is, IMO, the team's biggest concern.  I think we're fine w/ Hooker and Willis as starters, though Hooker's had injury issues throughout his time in the NFL (and prior).  I like Odum, but like him more as a STer than a guy we have to rely on being a starter for an extended time if one of our top 2 go down.  Then Blackmon is still on the injured list, and I don't expect him to be full strength to the middle of the season (if not later).  The UDFA, Rutledge, was a playmaker but from a small school and went undrafted for a reason, so I'm not too sure that we should expect anything out of him in terms of being reliable if he had to play a lot of minutes.   Geathers is still a FA and I know Ballard really seemed to like him.  I'm wondering if him not being signed or brought up in discussion is a health issue (i.e., can't pass a physical), a major health concern (given his injury history), demanding too much $, or if the team has simply moved on from him.    Personally, I like the fact we're looking at Tavon Wilson, he's a former 2nd round draft pick who had his best NFL year last season, starting 13 games in Detroit and recording 98 tackles, 2 fumble recovers and 5 passes defended.  
    • So someone infected coughs in your face but you can’t catch the virus from them because they didn’t cough in your face for the contractually obligated 15 minutes it takes to infect... 
    • R u counting the # of times an offensive linemen or tight end locks on him and drives him 10 yards down the field?  I know I am being a smart ... and I apologize. Our linebacking core is light and there is no getting around that.  Opposing te's are bigger than out lb core.  It is the weakness of this D philosophy. The lbers in this D tend to b drafted on their ability to defend the pass. Okereke looks like a stud against the pass. However, he like Leonard, is basically a safety playing lber. Just my opinion.
