I told the majority of people here not to overlook the Jaguars despite everyone saying they are going to tank.

 

The majority of yall expected a blowout today and I didn't. 

 

I am sad at this performance but I also know it is just Week 1 so keep your head up.

Some of you are hilarious giving up after 1 week.   It is just Week 1 folks 

Don't be too mad. Lots of teams lost today not just Colts   

I told the majority of people here not to overlook the Jaguars despite everyone saying they are going to tank.   The majority of yall expected a blowout today and I didn't.    I am

I thought Rivers played OK.  Honestly I take a lot of the blame for what happened tonight and place it on the D.  The whole reason the Jags were supposed to be pushivers this year is because their offense isn't good.  And yet our D couldn't contain that offense.  Clearly we have some issues there to deal with

 

I also kind of expected this offense to have difficulties finishing drives because we've got so many young wideouts.  It's a fact that experience pays off in the red zone and lack of it can bite you just as hard.  Also losing Mack hurt us a LOT.

 

The killer is that late game interception by Rivers.  This is literally the worst thing Rivers can do to us and he's already done it once only game he's played for us.  That's worth keeping an eye on.  Other than that he played OK given the state of the team.  We ARE very young on offense.  We DID lose our star RB.  It is explainable what happened to Rivers in this game and it's reasonable to hope it won't repeat.

 

But bottom line for me, if we can't stop the Jags on defense, this could be a long year.

Rivers looks like a rookie out there. Lots of yards, but critical mistakes in critical situations.... 

Is it Rivers that looks ike a rookie or is it the rookie-heavy WR group that looks like rookies?

 

This should have been expected.  We are very, very green in the receiver room, and that's going to put more pressure on Rivers than would otherwise be there.  Especially when the running game evaporates.

I hope the Jags win 5 or more games.

Honestly just terrible everything really I mean rivers did get throw for a good deal of yards but mr noodle threw 2 ints, Reich should have not left running the ball seems time and game management was not good since he left the run game, I could go on and on

Hard not to leave off running the ball when the guy who's best at running the ball is in the room with an undisclosed lower body injury.

I saw T.Y Hilton choke back to back possessions with the game on the line. It’s not just the rookies at receivers

The running game didn't evaporate, we just stopped running, the screens were eating them up, we stopped, we were running well, and we stopped. Why do we stop doing whats working?

Defense was atrocious today and take primary responsibility for that loss. Rivers mistakes, discipline and kicker played their part but this one is mostly on the defense.

 

No turnovers, busted coverages and no tight coverage. What was Minshew 19/20 for a lot of that game. It's the same defense we saw in the second half of last season. 

 

Terrible loss.

Rivers is Rivers and I'd suggest that some of you take that reality check and realize he's been a choke artist for most of his career. He put up ok numbers besides the picks but he shouldn't be throwing the ball 40+ times if we want to win. That's probably changing next week.

 

The defense was uninspired today, which is a norm for the first week in Indy. Our uninspired defense early in the season usually gets beat by the <insert mediocre Jags QB> . They gotta fix that soon, but they usually do.

I'm glad that the Jags fans think Minshew will amount to a franchise QB. Good luck there.

 

This is a typical Colts week 1 and Rivers will lead us to an 9-7 record and a 1st week playoff out if we are lucky. Horray!!

Yep... I was worried about the Defense all week. Proved that was a valid concern

I'd say it was Rivers that looked like a rookie 17 of his passes were check downs to RBs, he seemed more worried about his completion % then throwing some balls downfield because there were receivers open

Rivers has always loved throwing to his RBs. He does check down, but he isnt afraid to toss the ball in there as we gloriously got reminded of twice today.

Welp. I was completely wrong. We looked god awful out there. Both lines were out of sync, and now Mack is done for the season. 
 

So much for hoping to finally break our streak of losing week 1. Suddenly we look more like a team in the Lawrence sweepstakes than a team in contention. 
 

Lots and lots of work to do. Just like the Reds, we were overhyped to start the season.

Rivers excuses coming in 5-4-3-2-1. But everyone knows where I stand with $25M to Rivers. But he fits a "system", but I guess every other team doesn't accommodate talented players and do what their best player does well. (i.e. Ravens, Pats, Chiefs).

You were right.  I was on my way in here to tell you that.  In no way did I expect that but apparently you did.  Now, can you kindly give me the winning Powerball numbers for Wednesday?

 

BTW, kinda tough to NOT be pessimistic about the rest of the season right now.

Week 1 with no preseason and we out gained opponent by 200 yards, typically teams with that much more yardage win most every time. This week already teams with many more yards have lost from Philly to Carolina to Detroit.   Rivers played smart most the game and showed zip, if the O line creating more push could have run more and easier.

They look better than the Jets at least lol.  I don't think the Jags will be in the Trevor Lawrence Sweepstakes.

Don't you know, this is the forum's normal reaction after a loss?

Always seems to be the low post count people that are the most vocal negatively.

But where were we last year when the Colts lost to the Chargers by 3 points? Fire JB! this year we lost to a talentless Jags as opposed to last year's team. Without Leonard Fornette, Calais Campbell, AJ Bouye, and Dede Westbrook? I guess the more post counts the more accurate?

    • Man I really like this signing!  If he can come back 80% as good as he has played I would say we def upgraded our offensive line and that’s no knock on AC I just think this guy can be much better (if healthy). I would put our offensive line up against anyone else’s.  With that said Murphy’s law keeps coming into my mind because we have soo many ifs and question marks for this team that we can literally be 6-10 bad or super bowl bound. I can’t think of any colts team with this many “if” question marks.   If wentZ can prove last year was a fluke and go back to being one of the best up and coming qb in the game than we are sitting pretty. If he plays like he did last year things will be very very ugly.    Then you got this guy. If fisher can come back healthy we can have one of the best lines in football. If he doesn’t play or is diminished we have a huge hole at one of the most important positions.      I don’t know why but I just have this feeling with so many question marks on this team, that the season could go either way. I do fear that  some of These question marks  aren’t going to go our way and we will be hurting. Btw  Some of these other question marks Include , Will Mack be back to his old self?   Was last year a fluke for our new stud RB? Will ty  hilton plAy any better, or will he continue to decline? Was last year a fluke for Xavier Rhodes? Will Paris cambell stay healthy and actually contribute?  How will our rookie DEs play?  Then you have  the question mark that every team has  which is who will stay healthy?  
    • The risk is of opportunity cost, not of losing that money. The risk is that we have now made our bet with the LT position and we are missing on more safe options, so if he doesn't recover or recovers and is not the same, we are very likely left with sub-par performance at LT for the year...     
    • He should have been like "...and my source said ... and I quote 'Look...'"  
    • 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!
