JT Unimpressive


Recommended Posts

I mean come on guys he had 3.9 ypc today in a game that the Colts manhandled the team at the line of sceimmage.  None of you rah rah guys noticed him running into tackles on many carries or his tentativeness going lateral to the line?

 

he moves the pile no doubt and that is great and we need it.  But watch his carries again if you can.

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...

What is funny is my initial post said he could be our next Dickerson because of his speed and strength, some people have a reading comprehension problem. I never said he was Dickerson. Then he gains 100 Yards in his 2nd game and people aren't happy. Comical to me.

He runs absolutely nothing like Eric Dickerson.

I get you

   In a different Thread people got upset because I said the PC injury changed the way FR called the game

Basically he was at 4.0 which I will take all day, it was like 3.99 = 26 for 101.

But people HAVE to be negative and over critical or they might have to enjoy something and can’t pretend to be the smartest person in the room...

I enjoyed the hell out of the game.  Just so far am not impressed with this dudes running.  The undrafted FA for the jags has been much better statistically.

If I am a RB in the league and averaged 4 yards a carry for my career I would be happy and so would my team. 

Well me to man, I’d be a millionaire and retire at 30. But that doesn’t change the fact that it’s blow league average.

He went from 2.4 the first game of his pro career to 3.99 his second game. Why don't we give it another couple of games before passing final judgment?

Yeah, his YPC will probably be somewhere between 4 and 5. Combine that with his receiving ability, being a bellcow back, a goal-line back, and you have a complete RB with huge potential to carry this team.

This is one of the best all-around performances I have seen the Colts play in a long time = defense, offense, and SPteams. Coaching was great today too. We play like we played today the rest of the year, we will be tough to beat.

Yep, we are 1-1 now instead of 0-2 (which is huge), and we get to face the Jets next week who may actually be the worst team in the NFL. Big swing for us after today. Hopefully we keep the momentum going.

The coach in me did see some negatives but nothing major and/or detrimental

It is gigantic. 1-1 and 0-2 is a huge difference and history back that up. We showed today that we are good. Big win :thmup:

I am usually a gambling type of a guy but I was glad to see Frank settle for FG's on 4th and short. I also like the fact that Rivers threw less than 30 times and we rode JT. Smart football and Rivers arm stayed fresh late.

Its hard to say what kind of RB we have. 

 

With Mack, he had the opportunity to sit behind a potential HOF RB in Frank Gore for a year or two if i remember correctly.

 

Taylor has been way too hyped which isn't fair to him. The forums and the media have praised this pick like crazy. 

 

It really would have been nice to see that 1 - 2 punch at RB... But in the end, its just really hard to trust Macks durability. 

 

Im getting off topic. 

 

For Taylor I have the patience to see if he can learn.

Maybe it is because of the coaches I grew up around and/or the type of Offense I was taught I am not a gambler

I was very happy to take the FGs on 4th and short as well. 1.) We are building Blankenship's confidence in the 2nd game of his career, 2.) We are putting up points against a team that's worse than us, and 3.) We are putting pressure  on and destroying the Vikings confidence the more points we pile on. Great in every way.

people are actually saying Eric friggin Dickerson.

 

mack wasn’t a high draft pick,  these guys on here are all weird about this kid.  He hasn’t shown much in the running game imo.  He is running behind incredible run blocking and basically looks very average to me right now.  He does get push at the end of runs but doesn’t get much more than what is blocked Right now IMo.  
 

101 yds on 26 behind Nelson and the boys is not impressive imo.

I agree 100%. I think Frank realized he should've kicked the FG last week to go up 10-0, up 10-0 we probably win. I honestly think we underestimated the Jags but only time will tell.

Giants may now be worse than the Jets with the loss of Barkley.

I will say the Jags got rid of a lot of their "dirty laundry players" that didn't want to be there. Now they have a team that buys into Doug Marrone's system. They will be a team to watch this season. the real test will be whether they continue to fight hard all season, or fade into obscurity.

We get it, you are not a fan of JT.  Your point is duly noted.

    • MONEY MONEY MONEY TALKS 
    • https://www.si.com/nfl/2021/01/16/nfl-scouting-combine-2021-drastically-altered-covid-19   The NFL Combine won't be like were used to, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which limit the possibilities for teams to evaluate the players and their talent.   In the 4 years Ballard has been in Indianapolis, he have really nailed some of his draft picks and the scouting staff he has gathered in that period, have really been praised and mentioned time and time again, for their talent evaluation skills and success rate in the draft picks.   I know, every team have a huge setup and that the pandemic has limited the possibility for gathering as much information on every player in 2020 compared to other years, so it might be status Q. But the colts have been one of the better drafting teams the last couple of years, and with players like Big Q, Leonard, Taylor, Blackmon and Pittmann, Ballard and his team has really nailed some picks.   So, due to the major impact it will have for the entire league, that their won't be any scouting combine like were used to, does the Colts then have a slightly advantage over other teams, due to the setup Ballard and Ed Dodds have built?   I am especially thinking about an edge over teams with new GM´s, HC's and so on.
    • Haha.   I know what it means.    I worded it poorly.    What I meant was,   what was it he said that was disingenuous. 
    • I thought this guy suggesting the Colts keep Malik Hooker was the downfall of this video. Not even the dumbest GM in the NFL would trade their first round pick for Carson Wentz and that absurd contract he has tied to him. How could you label this as a perfect off-season?   What is Carson Wentz's salary cap hit Wentz is costing the Eagles $18.656 million against the cap for 2020. His dead money was set at $77.877 million.  His cap number jumps up to $34.673 million in 2021. It comes down to $31.274 million in 2022, and hits a peak of $36.273 million in 2023. In 2024, the final year of the contract, the cap hit of $32 million will match his average annual salary. Wentz is actually making only $1.383 million in base salary this season. That number hits a high of $22 million when he turns 30, appropriately in 2022. When the Eagles' structured Wentz's deal, in relation to the extensions for other highly drafted quarterbacks, it ended up being team-friendly. The Eagles had to work it up that way given Wentz's history of injury. In the end, however, he didn't sacrifice too much overall given the exponential explosion at the top of the QB market since. When can the Eagles get out of Carson Wentz's contract? The Eagles, if they don't think about trading Wentz before June 1 in 2021 — the only scenario in which they see any kind of cap relief for the move — are likely locked into Wentz for one more season. Given their cap situation, releasing Wentz is financially impossible. That move would cost the Eagles $59 mllion in dead money with a cap hit of $24.5 million. Trading him to someone would cause them to eat $33.8 million in dead money but at least get a mild cap relief of about $853,000. The trick there will be finding a partner willing to take on his adjusted lesser contract, which would be essentially for four years at $98.4 million
