This is a great example where sometimes stats doesn't mean anything. Looking at that stat line one would've thought we won by 14 or so points. The W is all that counts and they got it.

Had we put some pressure on Minshew and sacked him a few times we would have won that game even with the offensive miscues.

Just some historical perspective as to whom we have under center right now......   Essentially broke all SEC Records set by Peyton Manning before graduating as a senior....   Draft

Yes, new to the Colts the day Philip signed. And enjoying every minute of it. Not only watching him with a vastly better team around him, but my time on this board, as well. It's been a lot of fun.

Well, Ryan is in a perfect position to get revenge for that.

When is a sack never needed?  They are always needed because they are drive killers.  The problem is when your secondary lets the QB complete 95% of his passes all they are are speed bumps.

That is what I was kinda referring to. Yes we did have 3 sacks but Minshew was entirely too comfortable. Where was the pressure or the batted down passes?  Buckner is suppose to bring those.

They got some pressure.  I would agree I was disappointed in Buckner’s first game.  I guess I had more of an issue with the secondary than the pass rush but still outside of Kenny Moore and Justin Houston Id have a hard time finding anyone else on the defense who I thought played “well”.

No, the fact is he two INTs and may have thrown a 3rd if not for a penalty.

When the game was discussed by reporters they all agreed he threw three INTs and was lucky to have one called back. If a RB fumbles the ball three times but his team recovers the fact stands out he lost the ball three times.

If there is a penalty on the defense the INT doesn't count if a QB throws one.

We had 4 sacks against Jax. Autry had 2, Houston had 1, Willis had 1. Four sacks.

Yeah but Minshew was pretty comfortable and completed 95% of his passes and 3 TDs.  Once again our defense let a questionable QB get a 151.7 QBR. Giving up 10 points in the 4th quarter is unacceptable. 

Where was Buckner? He is paid to get after the QB and knock a pass or 2 down.

No one disagree with you but my point is he threw the ball to the defense three times. It is on video for proof. If you ask him about it he would agree.

I dint recall people saying he was the savior.  I recall people saying he was an improvement.

Rivers was playing with 52 new teammates for the first time and was 363 yards 89% rating.  I feel that only gets better and better as the season goes on with chemistry.

I think with no real preseason or training camp, this hindered the offense. 

 

I am hopeful we will be patient and allow the offense to gel.

Vikings will make Rivers beat them with the long pass. They don't think he has the arm and that is how they played him when he was with the Chargers.  If we don't play with a lead, it is going to be a very long day.

Agreed. I think he will need to throw some deep balls and unfortunately there is no Mike Williams in Indy to snag them.  Perhaps Pittman can step up.

TY let one go through his fingers, a 44 yard TD pass. The defender had no chance at it and it was in TY's bread basket.

Yup and the INT was off a tip that Mo should have caught. Rivers played a pretty good game yesterday.

The positive is TY showed he can separate. The negative is he is having a case of dropsies - at least 2 or 3 in the last 2 games, balls he would normally catch.

 

In past years, at least based on fantasy football watching, TY would start slow even under Pagano days, and it took normally a 0-2 start before TY would break out in the 3rd game. If he cannot get going against the Jets, I am not sure he is worth being paid top dollar after this contract year of his. He would be lucky to get close to double digit millions. He would be worth $8 mil. tops per year for any new short term contract, with a reduced salary cap on top of it.

The TY drops are worrying

Through 2 games, Brady and Rivers have both thrown 71 passes:

 

Brady: 44/71 (62.0%) for 456 yards (6.4 YPA), 3 TD, 3 INT, 77.0 rating

 

Rivers: 55/71 (77.5%) for 577 yards (8.1 YPA), 2 TD, 3 INT, 91.9 rating

I agree. I believe the funk he is in more to do with the lack of a true offseason and still try to build rapport with Rivers. It's not like his hands have magically turned to stone either so I'm withholding judgement until after a few more games.

 

Part of it could be gameplan related too. The Colts (and Rivers) utilized the RB's and TE's more this week so I wouldn't necessarily put it on TY either other than the end zone drop he had.

It makes a difference that Reich had a better game plan yesterday than last week. 

 

Game plan was to feature Taylor. Our defense help the cause today. Also Special Teams gave the offense great field position.

Rivers should’ve had 2 TD’s yesterday. He starting to finally feel comfortable. Glad to see he also didn’t make those forced throws.

Wasn't Cox on the goal line when he botched the catch?   Could have been a 3 TD day.  

Either way, I was pleased with his play.  It's an improvement over JB so that is good.   No way will he hold the 77.5% completion percent, but so far so good.

You’re 100% correct about the possibility of 3TD’s. I think he can hold that 77.5 as long as the run game is there for him.

I was expecting high percentage passes to Hines out of the back field yesterday.  I wonder why we didn't see more of them.  Turned out OK though.   

Did Fountain make it into the game yesterday?   I don't recall seeing him, but I don't always notice all the players each play.

No Fountain yesterday because of how deep we are at the position.

Fountain playing ST will help him stay on the 53.

 

That throw to TY was so good. Looked almost effortless. We need a couple more plays like that a game. The good thing is TY still got a lot of desperation. He will get it together. Next time there is a one o’clock game the roof needs to be closed. Reich said today he blamed the sun.

Our stadium really is terrible shadow wise. Anyone who's ever been to a game can tell you that.

 

I remember specifically the season opener vs Det a few years ago where I left my seat after the first qtr and watched from the other side of the stadium.

 

I'm a little shocked how down some are on TY in general. If he's bad this entire year I'll agree, but this season is definitely out of the norm in terms of preparation.

If he was not getting separation that would mean he lost a step. He got a ton on that play. He will be fine. Next weeks game is at 4 so if it’s opened then won’t have to worry about the shadows.

Actually, Fountain had 15 offensive snaps and 11 ST snaps per the unofficial snap count.

 

 

Thank you because I didn’t notice 10 at all. Dublin got some snap on offense from what I seen as well.

    • As you likely know,  the 2021 schedule is revealed Wednesday Night...   5/12...   8p your time...   5p my time...     These are things I always look for as soon as I see the schedule.   In no particular order....   1.    Do we start at home, or on the road?   Typically, you close your season with the opposite.       2.    Marquee games?    National Games?    Are we on the big stage at all?    Anything beyond the dreaded Thursday night games which most every team gets stuck with and hates!     Ugh.  The worst.   3.   Bye week?    When does it happen?    I prefer late October to Early November.   Something close to the middle of the season.    We got lucky once having the bye week in week 4.    That was Luck's rookie year.    The early break allowed Chuck Pagano and his wife to see a doctor and caught his leukemia early enough to save him.    Otherwise, I hate the early bye week.   I prefer weeks 7-10.   4.   Hardest stretch of the schedule.   Easiest part of the schedule.   Knowing full well that what the schedule might seem like in May, might be totally different by the time that part of the season comes.   5.    Potential bad weather games.    So, this year,  we play Buffalo, Baltimore, Dolphins and Jags on the road.   Games in September likely means hot and humid.   Games in the northern cities in December likely means cold and even possible snow.   6.    Anything out of the ordinary?    Some years, one team gets screwed and has to play 3 consecutive games on the road.    I think it has most recently happened to SF and Seattle,  and those teams already put on a lot of miles traveling from the West Coast.   Did I leave out anything?     Is there something you look for and I didn't mention it?    Let us know!   The 2021 season gets REAL Wednesday Night!           
    • Actually we can if we cut Doyle. Saves 4.5 mil
    • No way have the cap room to spend on him. 
    • OK......   You've conflated two issues in this post, and moved the goal-line in the process.   Your headline says "Why does Ballard love 1-year deals"...     and you list a large bunch of players who have received one-year deals.   But you've also lumped in with them, a bunch of players who are NOT one 1-year deals.    They are on the last year of their rookie contract.    Their 4-year rookie contract.    That's entirely DIFFERENT.   You listed, Hines, Wilkins, Smith, Turay, Lewis,  Adams and Franklin.   That's 7 players who are on the last year of their 4-year rookie contract.   You even included Glowinski, who is on the last year of his 3-year deal that Ballard signed him to.    8 players.   And they've all been lumped in with guys who got 1-year deals.   The reasons for all the 1-year deals are several.    One, 1-year deals keep motivation high.   Two,  1-year deals can be done with players at a young age because you have contractual leverage, like with Pascal and MAC and Odoms.    Three,  one year deals during this current strange Covid time is because the salary cap has gone down,  no one is quite sure how much it will go up next year?   So, better to do a one-year deal and then figure things out in a year or so when we all have a better idea on what the 22 cap will be and even the 23 cap.    Four,  things are going to get complicated, financially speaking, when we sign guys like Q, Darius and Braden to their Big Deals.   Plus, by then we might be talking about extending Wentz.   All that will be a big factor on our long-term approach to the team.
