Never take #17 off the field again please...

Minshew won't be able to see DeForest through the trees

RIvers looked washed up. We still can’t stretch the field. This was truly a epic failure. Defense just looked horrible. If this continues next game at what point do we just say let Eason play and get him reps. I expected defense to be a little off but that was didsgerous. Also where was Hines the second half. Once again Reichs play calling goes down in flames the second hAlf.

Well Rivers deserves "most" of the blame for this loss. Those INT's were UGLY but at one point the brother was 20/24 with only 1 INT. The D gave up 1 wide open TD. That was the difference in this game. Hopefully Mack is not hurt as bad as reported.

 

Keep the faith Colts fans.

Ballard gets a lot of praise from around the league and Colts fans but his actual on field results are not that impressive.  I believe the Colts have an overall losing record under his regime.   He has had what 3 or 4 years now?  Our defense is still suspect.  Our defensive scheme is terrible.  Minchew was unmolested for most of the afternoon and had a ridiculously high completion percentage against us.

How dare you talk about the great Chris ballard lol. The man has had enough years to produce, I like Ballard. Think it’s more of a coaching issue. Although the Buckner trade is not off to a good start

Reich giving up on the run like he did was horrible. He is still making the same coaching mistakes.

Should have just kicked that field goal in the 1st quarter to go up 10-0. No reason to gamble on 4th down there. That bad decision shifted the momentum and changed the complexion of the entire game.  Went from the verge of a possible blowout win to another dogfight in Jax.

I know it’s akin to blasphemy around here.  Lol.  I like Ballard too but he isn’t above criticism.  Colts have been mediocre on the field under his watch.  That’s fact. Roster building is about more than looking good on paper.  What the team does between the lines is how he should be evaluated.

I just wonder how long before Brissett is back starting. I have said before that Rivers isn't the answer, and today does nothing to change my mind.

Brissett is not the answer either... he is a .500 QB or less.

Our best QB is on the PS.

Once Mack went down the run game stalled. Hines is awesome and had a great game but he wasnt a threat to run in between the tackles. Not sure why Taylor wasnt used more often. I mean that's why you drafted him right?

 

What was with the oline? I wasnt watching them closely but Rivers was hit or under pressure a lot. 

 

The defense was disappointing. I didnt see much of an impact from Buckner. Failed to get consistent pressure and our secondary was abused. 

 

Just a bad performance from all phases of the team. Let's hope it's just rust.

Never was a fan of signing Rivers.  This is exactly what I was afraid of.  

You thought that with Rivers the defense would look like carp (Minshew was 19/20 for 3 TDs) and Hilton would drop easy passes?  Rivers would make Reich call a poor game.

    • I certainly understand the Ingram intrigue but I'd have to go with Kerrigan here. His body has a lot more left in the tank than Ingram and his body is as healthy as can be due to Washington's dominant young d-line. Kerrigan could certainly give us 1-2 years of above average play! 
    • I remember it like yesterday, then read the reasons shortly after the selection, and they made sense.  Edge played at The U, which ran the stretch, and the Colts were running it as well.  Edge also had fewer miles on his legs, due to being in running back by committee for most of his career there.  Lastly, Edge was the better receiver and pass blocker.    I sometimes wonder if Ditka thought about making that insane offer to the Colts first? 
    • I don't care how he tested (especially this year, when all those pro-day tests are under serious question)... I care how he plays and how he looks on tape. Players that didn't test off-the-charts are some of the best playmakers in football - Mahomes ran 4.82 with 30 inch vertical. I'd take him over any of the best athletes in the league making plays on the move. With that said... I don't see Mac Jones in similar light even though they tested very similarly. I don't think he's stuck in mud in the pocket. But I do not think he has enough mobility to scramble when needed. He will be one of the worst scrambling starting QBs in the league IMO. I think him scrambling will be extremely rare in the league. I just don't think he has the mobility and physical talent to do it while launching the ball downfield.    I like him too. But there are levels to this thing. I like him as a late first-second round QB. I think he can be a good productive QB in the right system(Shannahan system for example). I don't like him enough to give up 3 1st round picks + 3d for him, though. This is my whole contention here. He's just not THAT type of player IMO. Lance and Fields are. 
    • You may end up being right, but I hope that we add some talent here   As a HUGE Ohio State fan....  I WANT Lewis to step up....  He seemed to improve a bit, but, in my opinion there needs to be a talent influx on the DE   I have a recurring nightmare of Patrick M........ getting 30 seconds to throw...
    • Also, just because I'm starting to feel some kind of way about this, Mac Jones is getting short changed these days. He's a really good prospect, and people are treating him like he's an unathletic bum with no arm.   Blake Bortles went #3 in 2014. Sam Darnold went #3, and Josh Rosen went #10 in 2018. None of them were unable to succeed due to athletic shortcomings. Mac Jones tested just as good, if not better, than all of them. (Bortles was actually pretty good as a scrambler, despite his mediocre testing.) I already used the Jared Goff comparison; he went #1 in 2016, and went to the SB in 2018. Mac Jones tested as good as Goff.   He doesn't have super speed or quickness, but he's not stuck in mud. He moves well enough to stay alive in the pocket, and he has enough movement ability to scramble when needed. He doesn't have a cannon of an arm, but his arm is not deficient. He's very good from the pocket, he processes well, not a one-read thrower, very accurate, and tough.    If Bortles, Darnold and Goff could go top five in the last 7 years, so can Mac Jones. Of course, he needs to be better than them to live up to that draft status, but again, their issues weren't about lacking athleticism.    Just saying, again, the anti-Mac stuff is getting a little overboard. I like Fields and Lance better, but Mac Jones being desirable isn't entirely outrageous.
