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.

    • We've got some decent value at the 5 and dime store.   Great bargains Rhodes Moore   Good bargains TJ Carrie Wilson
    • They are talking about next year's picks, which one (either 1st or 2nd) is conditionally going to Philly. Doubt they can contractually use either in a trade for this year (unless it's with Philly). Perhaps there's contract language that says we can deal our 2nd, but if we do, Philly would automatically get our 1st.
    • What is his role?     So does everybody on the team who doesn't want to be traded because of whatever Easterby did not seeing things as well as Watson and 5 players who were let go by the team?  Why are the 5 seeing it correctly and the 150 not?      
    • Instead of trying to split the atom on how stats are measured, let's keep it simple and just apply basic logic.    Should we not expect a 31 year old to lose speed? Should we not expect a tiny guy who's losing his speed, to struggle getting the same separation he relied on all these years? Even if you disagree with the majority of fans (who think he's slowed), wouldn't the trained eyes of the coaches know better? And if TY still had it (and Rivers was at fault), wouldn't TY get a better/longer deal than 1 year / 8M? Should we believe TY's stats are simply wrong, while most of the other pass catchers are grading better at separation while getting the same balls, by the same QB? Are stats out to get TY, or is Philip just bad throwing to TY and good to everyone else? And nobody saying Rivers is great. But simply other pass catchers are grading better with Rivers, than TY. TY relied on his speed all these years (along with route running). He's losing that speed, and now has to rely on route running (for tough yards) and mismatches (seam and bad DBs) for the majority of his highlights. There's no mystery here. It's just getting harder for him. I really hope he can squeeze one more 1000 yard season out for the Colts.   
    • You are having a different conversation than I am.   I'm talking about the narrow issue of Watson possibly being traded, and citing the reasons he supposedly stated for wanting to be traded.  I show you articles because you insinuate that I am wrong about those reasons.    What the culture is or is not in the HOU organization is not relevant, because no articles have cited culture as being the reason.    Its also not relevant to Watson, because it seems to me that if these adverse conditions were long standing since the time AJ and Foster were in the locker room, then those conditions must not have have been a big deal to Watson in September when he chose to extended his playing time with such a bad organization run by such awful political owners.  That must not be the reason he wants a trade.
