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.

    • Not to go diving too far down this particular rabbit hole... but the bolded is a major point of variance for people. What doesn't make sense to one might be completely understandable to another. And some people will latch onto something that they don't immediately understand, and rather than trying to understand it they will assume their lack of understanding means that it fundamentally 'doesn't make sense,' and therefore something else must be up.   So a person's baseline understanding of certain issues, couple with how quickly that person can go from trusting to skeptical has a lot to do with whether they entertain alternative possibilities, and to what extent.
    • That's specific to marijuana. The PED policy was made more strict than it already was. First positive test for anabolic steroids is a six game suspension now; was previously four games. I believe HGH is treated as an anabolic steroid by the PED policy.   And teams cannot suspend players for drug violations, only the league can. A team can suspend a player for conduct detrimental, but if that's related to a drug violation, it will be challenged and the team will (most likely) lose. 
    • From the moment Hasselback patted Luck on the chest...nothing about the Luck saga has been common. The secrecy...the misleading of fans...the incredibly long rehab...the Europe trip...the sudden retirement...all of it. 
    • At the time of the retirement, he had been dealing with that weird ankle/calf issue for at least two months, and it wasn't going away. He could have felt like he would have to use painkillers to make it through the season. Or with the uncertainty of what it was, maybe he was considering surgery, but knew that would come with significant pain during recovery.   A year or two later, the leg issue could be gone entirely. So the immediate conflict related to managing pain is no longer there.   I agree with you though, it would be naive to assume that any NFL player could play without experiencing serious pain. However, in March of 2020, the NFL's testing policy for marijuana changed dramatically, to the extent that it's now basically a viable option for pain management. If a player isn't already in the drug testing program due to previous positive tests, he basically only has to worry about being randomly tested during a small window at the start of training camp. And the penalties for a positive test no longer includes a suspension.   So if that were a player's preferred method of pain management, the new policy makes it a lot easier to get by.
    • Now it won't be an issue.  Per the current CBA players can no longer be suspended for failed drug tests, they can only be fined.     That is by the league.  I don't know if the teams can then suspend a player or not.
