Based on this list, looks like this stat didn't really translate into wins that much, did it?

Based on the top 5 penalized team in the league there is correlation as to the amount of losses. 

The top teams that were penalized are Tampa Bay, Jacksonville, Oakland, Cleveland  and Arizona. 

The win-loss record was because of the lack of offense, not the correlation of lack of penalties. Had we had a more potent offense then the penalties would have related to wins.

Least penalized teams are usually well coached and disciplined teams. 

 

Maybe it did translate in wins. As in... if we weren't this disciplined and well coached we could have won 5 instead of 7, for example.

I want to know the amount of penalties that were waived off or reversed for every team!? Or how many that were missed per team! Or the amount of times teams were cheated from a crap call!

On paper that's correct, but we saw AV shank kicks that directly affected outcomes. We saw an offense that had to exhaust it's bag of tricks weekly to find 17-ish points. 

 

The penalties being low were a product of a disciplined O-Line, if I had to wager a guess without looking.

And a rookie corner who (with the exception of one game) played extremely well from a penalty perspective. Can't wait to see what Rock brings in year 2.

To be fair I am not sure you can fully blame the GM/Coaching staff for being reluctant to give up on AV.  He was recognized as the greatest kicker of all time.  

 

With the offense thing I think that's simply a product of basically have to start a backup quality quarterback the entire season.  

 

How many teams could you legit take their best QB away from them the entire season and have them win 7 games.  Furthermore how many would be in as many games as the Colts where in (Remember AV misses cost us at least 2 games)

 

There are a few. 

The Saints could almost certainly win 7+ games with Bridgewater.  

Maybe the Pats because they always seem to be competitive.  

 

But outside of those teams, who can lose their best QB the entire season and win 7 or more games.  Not that darn many teams.  

 

Reich did very well given the situation.

They brought in kickers for tryouts several times and Vinny outperformed them... let's not forget that there is a reason why K's without a job are K's without a job (at least an NFL job).  So, yea it was unfortunate that we lost a few extra games from poor kicking.. but no, I don't think that all falls on Ballard and Reich for not replacing AV.  It's not like they didn't look for replacements, they just couldn't bring a guy off the streets who was better.

This team is very well coached. To be the least penalized team and have had played the rookies the way we did is nothing short of astounding. We had 3 rookie DBs who played a bunch.

 

This team is really just a franchise QB and 2 players away from being able to make a deep playoff run.

    • More than me enjoying...  I know YOU enjoy them.   As for April, what happens is more info leaks out.   Clearly some of that (most if that?) is a smoke screen.   But sometimes good info gets out.   About guys like Mixon and Sweet and the big Miss State DL grabbed by Tennessee.  That information is always helpful.  Just things to keep an eye out for....   The key is having fun and don’t box yourself in!  
    • I just don't feel like anything changes come April. You know what the remaining needs are for the colts and where prospects were most likely land.   Strange. Draft calculate said it was equal value.    I mentioned Higgins can be a reach, but the draft is unpredictable. More teams go after Ts then IOL and there are a lot of good Ts in this draft. It's either Hurts or Gordon. I'm just not a fan of the other QBs and I feel we can still use his level of athletism instead of just having the QB ride the bench. Oline depth is a big need. We really don't have options if god forbid someone on the line gets hurt. Breeland is still a good option and we still have Doyle and Allie-Cox   Glad you enjoy my Mocks!
    • There is an Antonio Gates article in Yahoo Sports, says in considered signing with the Colts in 2019.  I know his age is up there, 39, will be 40 at the start of the season.  It mentioned that he has retired mindset but maybe Ballard and Rivers can sway him to give it one more year.  With the Rivers to Gates was one the best connections.  He could be a valuable 3rd receiver for the Colts and Rivers.  I think drafting a TE in the 2nd or 3rd round should be considered as well. 
    • This all reminds me of Jachai Polite last year, not being polite at all with his interviews, lol.
