Andrew Luck was no doubt a very good QB, if not in the great category. Rivers is in that category actually if you go by his career. Hey Ebron don't let the door knob hit you in the butt on your way out of Indy. You don't scare anyone, you come off like you were being a great guy then when things get tough you just quit on the horseshoe. True facts. I like Jack Doyle better anyway and hey Ebron you couldn't carry Dallas Clark's jockstrap when it comes to TE's. I have been around a long time.

Wow...  Was this a shot at Ballard or TY?

Must have been a mess in that locker room:omg:

 

I would take it more as a shot at Jacoby.

 

Not sure the locker room was a 'mess' as among TY, Darius Leonard, Quenton Nelson, Houston, Doyle, etc. we have a group of solid leaders with positive attitudes.  Reich seems like a very well respected coach.  Ballard seems like he has a lot of respect from the team.

 

Ebron is a selfish player.  He bashed the Lions when he left Detroit after having a terrible time with dropped passes, etc. while he was there.  He'll bash Pittsburgh, too, when they decide to move on from him.

 

https://www.freep.com/story/sports/nfl/lions/2019/02/04/detroit-lions-eric-ebron-indianapolis-colts/2768331002/

Some clips from that article (maybe if he didn't struggle so much with drops, he would've been used in the red zone - an area where the coach and  QB both have to trust you to call your number and deliver the ball):  

 

Told it was a chance catch up on his good season and what led to that, he said, “All I had to do was get away from Detroit, that’s it.”

 

He said he doesn’t know why he wasn’t used more prominently in the red zone as a Lion.

“I used to beg for it,” he said. “I begged everybody. Everybody. A lot of people knew it, but it is what it is.”

 

“They’re both really smart. They’re both like really, really great football minds. Andrew’s just like — and I’m not going to take anything away from Stafford — but Andrew’s a general, man,” Ebron said.

 

“I’m not going to downplay the organization, but there’s a lot of things they can do for their players better, and that’s coming from someone that’s been there four years,” Ebron said. “And build. Just build. Build upon your players, listen to your players and hear what they want because we’re the ones playing the game and we need a little bit more help over there, or they need a little bit more help over there.”

Asked to clarify, Ebron said, “Just listen to their players. They’ll understand exactly what I mean, at least the players will understand what I mean. Just listen to the players, man. The players play, and if there’s some things that can help their game, do it.”

Not a great player if you need a great QB to be relevant.

TY, healthy or not, wasn't relevant with Brissett either. In fact, we didn't have a receiver with over 600 yards last year. That's just a bad QB.

IDK who started it. But, he has every right to defend himself if people are still harassing him on Twitter. Regardless how you feel about him, he doesn't deserve to be harrassed. He's not a Colt anymore so leave him alone. 

Then the same applies to JB, he doesn't deserve to be "harrassed" when his #1 WR was injured half the year and his #1 TE quit on the team but yet 75% of this forum craps on JB. I could care less about Ebron at this point because he isn't a Colt but he if he is spouting off about the Colts, then us as fans will respond. As Karl Malone used to say, stay out of the kitchen if you can't take the heat. Once you get on Twitter and spew nonsense than the door is open.

If TY was healthy we beat Houston in game #2 and win the division. That would've gave us a 2 game lead. You could tell he was 50% at best and even dropped a big pass late he normally catches in his sleep that would've put the game away.

I agree. I think TY is an above-average receiver. However, it would take someone elite like Hopkins, Julio, or Thomas to have a 1,000 yard season with Brissett. That's why I agree with Ebron. Despite his crybaby attitude, he's right.

Ebron's only good point is that JB isn't a franchise QB like Luck was. So yeah he is right there. Still he quit on us. I have TY as Good on my scale on the Above Average, Good, Very Good, Great scale. He was just too injured last season to pull off his normal clutch big games. Of course Hopkins is Great as is Julio.

Being critique and being harrassed is two different things. I don't think anyone is blowing up JB's Twitter taking personal shots at him like they are with Ebron. And again, IDK if Ebron randomly starting spouting off about the Colts on his own. Or if he was being harrassed and decided to respond. In which, he has every right to.

TY had 966 yards in 2017 with JB

time out.  Where are they getting 67 games played with the Colts.  He was here for 2 years only, 1 with Luck, 1 without.

There saying every game he has played in his career w/o luck as his QB, including Detroit.

 

He had 1 more TD(14) in 67 career games than he had with Luck(13) in the 16 games they played together.

Decker obviously missed on his player evaluation of Ebron.

I’m guessing that Decker has input to personnel decisions.... NOT veto power over them.

 

He may very well have sounded a note of caution on Ebron.... we don’t know.

Mebron at it again. I remember right after the 2018 season...lots of people over at SB wanted to give him a huge $9-10M/year extension...thankfully Ballard was much more prudent.

A colts fan called him out for liking several posts by Steelers fans bashing the Colts and calling them trash. I can see why he’s being trashed by Colts fans in return. Hey Ebron.....

“Andrew Luck made the Colts relevant” says Eric Ebron who caught 13 TDs in 16 games with Luck and 14 TDs in 67 games without Luck...

 

cant really argue with that part, he went of the rails a bit after that though

 

ebron could have played better, but ultimately he was going to go to waste here with jacoby.  TY had his worst years with jb too, though he had a better attitude.  it did look like he was getting sick of it late in the year though especially in the jags game

Why in the world would you assume it was a mess in the locker room?  Because one guy complained?   
 

He happens to be one of the few guys who wasn’t invited back to the franchise.   And it’s no secret that the front office and coaching staff didn’t like the way Ebron handled his personal business.   
 

So if you want to say a shot at Ballard — that’s fine.  But I think he’s responding to a fan(s) giving him grief on the Internet.  I don’t think it’s a % at Hilton.  Maybe a mild one at Brissett. 
 

I think it’s mostly Ballard and the coaching staff.    I wouldn’t give it a first thought, much less a second thought.

 

A big fat nothing burger for me.  A big yawn for me.   Nothing to see here for me.    We move on.....

Love Eric TDbron. Can’t stomach Eric Mebron.

Unfortunately they are one in the same. 
 

Colts fans aren’t doing themselves any favors by attacking him. They just look salty.  People were making fun of Lions fans for the same thing.

 

Twitter will be twitter though. Some people thrive on the negative.

I really don't care about Ebron one way or another, but I don't blame him for defending himself against a salty fan. And I do agree that without Luck (or a good QB), we're just not very relevant. I also don't judge him for shutting things down as we simply don't know the entire health situation, nor do we have insight to his contract situation (he was in a contract year, not extended after a great 1st year). Two sides to everything, and it's a business.

Beefing on Twitter is the only thing that makes Eric Ebron relevant and he knows it... Guy has backed up his talk one time and that was 2018. He’s one more busted season away from being a has been. Glad Ballard moved on...

Sheeze....

 

I don’t know....

 

If you are a public figure, and you are even a little sensitive.... Twitter is NOT your friend....

 

He shouldn’t be taking swings back.... just shut up... and play football.... well

 

It will resolve itself...

Only drama queens care about what is said on Twitter. 

There are a lot of people who would be better off just staying away from social media period. 

I guess I am old school enough to believe if someone gossips and don't have the guts to say it to my face, then it means zero to me. 

All twitter is is a media rag mag.

Ebron got his "lime light" thanks to Reich and Luck giving him the target passes in 2018. He still dropped alot of them. He is an average TE gifted with size and speed but no hands. He has a HUGE Ego and wants to be the life of the party. 

He is lucky to get signed onto the Steelers. I don't think he will last much longer in the NFL.

    • I looked into it, apparently the dude actually is neighbors with Brady's offensive coordinator and Brady was going there to meet him.     Regardless the guy looked pretty well off.  
    • I've already listed them. You're going in circles.  You admitted you were lazy, and asked me to provide sep stats. I provided them. I'm sorry they don't support your pre-formed conclusion. 
    • Wow, what a surprise!   Another dishonest post by you!   Shocking!   We’re bottom 5 only because we’ve had our bye week.   We average 33 pass attempts per game.   So give us 33 more for the bye week and we’d be right in the middle of the pack.     You complained week one for passing too much.  Now you’re complaining we’re passing too little.   But the stats that you swear by prove you wrong.  Whoops! This is yet another example of how you use stats to complain.   And it’s completely dishonest!   Again, par the course for you!  
    • They've had a bad OL for a long time, and have have faired better in terms of balance and rushing AVG since Reich's departure while still having a bad OL. It's not that they didn't have good RBs when Reich was there, Matthews got hurt in 2014 and they chose not to resign him. Instead, they drafted Gordon in 2015. Gordon had zero TDs in 2015, but 10 the year after Reich left. What is interesting, is Frank was promoted to OC when Wisenhunt left, then Frank was fired to bring back Wisenhunt. Sirianni was also there those year. Both he and Frank are Wisenhunt products, which I was never a fan of. That Jags game was hard on the eyes. I'm just not sure how much 2018 was Reich's game plan, vs going with the flow of the typical Luck game plan. I agree as well, not all the QB. Certainly some QB issues, but last year's Miami game was just bad on top of bad. And a few games where we went extreme opposite of the teams known weakness. That's my thought almost to a T. Yup, this is the mystery. I tend to believe he was simply along for the ride of what was a "Luck offense" I think the bad Jax game plan in W1 set us up for imbalance later. Reich probably realized it was silly to play like that vs the Jags knowing how bad they were vs the run, while at the same time losing trust in Rivers. That combination drove him to ultra conservative and predictable play calling the next several games. And that was mostly OK because the teams we played were mostly bad.
