JT Unimpressive


Recommended Posts

Looked awful.  Can’t make the edge.  Looked dancy up the middle.  Had the one good gain in the pass where he ran over the CB 20 yds downfield.  Wisco RBs are like Japanese receivers to me. I’ll believe it when I see it. That KC kid looks way better than Taylor.  RBs should be able to come in and produce right away in many cases.  I hope I eat crow but I’m not seeing it.  Was definitely the 3rd option.  
 

Nothing  was encouraging today.  Except Campbell.  Dline was terrible.  When Mack went we could not run.  Boy oh boy we looked bad.  Rivers looked awful in decision making.  I was a big fan of the signing.

Were we watching the same Taylor?   Because I thought he looked tantalizingly fast, talented, and physical for a rookie RB.   Also looked better catching the ball than I ever expec

Taylor should have gotten the ball on that 4th and 1.

And the history of bad threads from the ol Nickster continues...

I thought he looked electric, the O line was producing many holes at all today. He showed much better hands that was given credit for, world class speed the 1-2 Taylor and Hines combo will have a huge season. Depending who Colts bring up to replace Mack (Bruce Anderson or an outside back) the injury could put Taylor at top of ROY race

I thought he looked a little tentative on a few runs, probably zigged when he should have zagged on a couple of plays.  Other than that, I have no complaints.  He went from rookie who would spell the starter in Mack to becoming the co-starter with Hines in his first NFL game (remember no preseason either) in one quarter.  Losing Mack hurt BIG.  JT I'm not worried about.  I think he'll be fine.  Same for Pittman.  Remember, no preseason is going to hurt some of these rookies.  When these two guys figure things out and get a little more experience I think they'll be weapons for us.

He had 22 yds on 9 carries.

9 carries with rivers throwing it 41+ times. 

 

Colts decided that the running game isn't their strength. 

 

Today's loss is on Frank. 

I thought the play calling was horrible.  Mack was rolling and they run a 185 lb guy on 4th and 1.  Then you put JB one of the literally slowest QBs in the league on in a option.  Cute Frank. 
 

I am pretty sure the staff do not think JT is ready.

Taylor looked pretty explosive and had 89 yards from scrimmage, running game was pretty rough but they abandoned it late.  He definitely was not the problem lol. 

I think they realize Taylor is not ready between the tackles.  
 

hope I’m wrong boys but he did not look good running it.

Today’s loss is on Rivers and that awful defense

 

Frank knows what rivers is. The way he played was rivers football. The point in having rivers was to get a guy who can be quick with his reads and checkdowns to intermediate throws. 

 

The run game was supposed to be priorty number 1. Who cares if they know we are gonna run it? Just run the damn ball. 

 

The defense didn't help. They were quiet. But the game was winnable. Very winnable... 

 

I liked signing rivers because I thought they werent going to rely solely on his arm to win games. Apparently that isn't so. 

 

Frank continues to say we have great players and then he never uses them. 

 

Rivers was supposed to compliment the running game. Even with Mack going down, they acted like they have zero faith in the other RBs on this team. Run the damn ball!

No not today in the run game, but he looked fantastic in the passing game.  I thought he looked explosive when he was out in the open and he did barrel people over.  We'll see how he does next week because if what they say about Mack is true, Taylor's production just went up significantly.

I’m cool.  I’ve had several glasses of Jameson and both of my fantasy teams are rolling.
 

I’m telling you right now we are in trouble at RB with Mack probably out for the year.  This performance was against an org tanking for Lawrence.

I wouldn't be too critical of him in his first game, especially with no pre-season. Lets wait until a few games in and see how he goes. And 89 yards from scrimmage is a good days work when your not the starter for half the game. He should be ok.

 Like I said in the first post, the 35 yd initial reception was fine but they had the d completely fooled and he didn’t get touched until he trucked a corner at the 5.  And Reich was reluctant to play him even after Macks injury. 
 

we shall see.  This was s loss to Jax.

Looks like they didn't get your memo to tank.

JT was better in  the passing game than I expected, but I did not see a fluid and instinctive runner. 

 

Compare for example Kamara with the Saints hitting the whole with what we saw from JT today.  Not saying JT cannot get much better, it is like comparing a pro with a high school rb. 

 

Lol. This is a player in his first game. Kamara is in his 4th year. You can't compare the two. Give the rookie time.

You obviously didn’t watch very much of the game. Taylor was churning when he was in. Made play after play. For some stupid reason the coaches kept going back to Hines in short yardage situations.

The other 2 backs had 54 yds on 11 carries.  JT had 22 on 9.  
 

This guy is supposed to b explosive between the tackles and he looked like Ron Dayne or Trent Richardson to me between the tackles.

He also had several big gains called back for nonsense penalties like that one on Jack Doyle

he had 22 yds on 9 carries.  I suspect she cAnt pass protect yet which is not surprising coming from Wisco and the cornfield game, he may learn to be ok at pass pro.

What hole was opened that taylor missed ? I sure didnt see it and I like many watched the entire game. Comparing just carrys and yards gained without watching when holes were created doesnt make much sense to me .

I’m guessing on film study, his carries won’t look good bud.

 

i remember a couple times wondering why he didn’t hit it Up in there as advertised.  Very Dane, Richardson looking

    • I’d rather not win the super bowl with rivers then win the Super Bowl with brady. I hate brady lol
    • That is so short sighted.   The way to get to the playoffs in the NFL is with high powered NFL passing offenses (been the case since the Peyton days). However, once you get there, you are playing very good defenses as well. Plus, I don't need to explain the rope-a-dope the Colts pulled from 32nd ranking rushing D to win the SB. Not to mention the 31st/32nd ranked defense in the Patriots going to the SB in 2011. I don't need to remind you the Saints, who were 25th or 26th overall D in the NFL beating the Colts in SB 44.   Bottom line - regardless of where you finished and how you finished in the regular season, good coaching helps you turn things around and your regular season ranks is not what wins you championships, your adjustments and ability to maximize strengths and minimize weaknesses gets magnified come playoff time.    If you look at metrics, we did have once in a decade D like the 2000 Ravens with the 2013 Seahawks and the 2015 Broncos that played under even more QB friendly rules than the 2000 Ravens. So, yes, building such Ds is definitely possible with the high rate of draft picks working out like the 2013 Seahawks or high hit rate in free agency like the 2015 Broncos. You are not going to stop the best of offenses to under 20 points most of the time but if you can limit their possessions and keep them in that sweet spot of under 25, you have a puncher's chance of scoring just enough to win, for which you need a good defense for those timely stops. 
    • I think you're mistaken on several fronts.   First, in general, my point was that either our offense has to be better, or our defense has to be better. We can't have a B level offense AND defense and really expect to contend. So if we keep Rivers, the defense has to be better, especially against good QBs.    Second, if you only focus on the scores in the SB, then yeah, you might conclude that defense is overrated, but that's silly because there are a lot of games to be won to get to the SB in the first place. You gave the 2017 Eagles as an example, and they gave up 33 points in the SB, but only 10 points in the divisional game (only scored 15), and 7 points in the conference championship. They went 13-3 and were a contender to begin with partly due to their top five defense.    The 2018 Patriots were a better defense than they got credit for (they were 10th in net yards/pass attempt, 7th in points allowed, and 5th in turnovers), and it was their defense that set the tone in the SB, only allowing three points. It's weird that you'd even use that team as an example.   And last year's Chiefs team had it's strong points defensively. They won the last six games of the season to get the #1 seed, giving up an average of 11.5 points/game, and they were 7th in points allowed over the season.   Of course you have to have a good offense, I've never said otherwise. But you also need a defense that can make some plays. 
    • Crowd noise?    Sorry....   I don’t understand...  
    • The Eagles are not as bad shape as Saints, clearly, but looks like they would only have to cut 4 guys then restructure a few.     Problem with Wentz for them is trading him only frees up a little over $800k in cap space this year(2021).   Now they can wait till after June 1st amd save more this year and put some dead cap till next year, but similar to Michael Thomas they would have to be operating under the cap before then.
