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.

    • So sounds like it’s the Colts’ year to finally make it rain in FA and sign some big name players.
    • Another reason why I think the Steelers might be ideal second trade partners is that they have a 4th Round compensation pick 13 picks later but no pick in Round 5.   Do like the Walker Little pick and hope he does slide to say the 4th and we could nab him.
    • JB is not my favorite QB. But even I would never compare him to the likes of the guys on that list. He is much more in the Hasselback group.    But I also disagree with putting Grigs on that list as well. He wasn’t a disaster or an embarrassment...he was just a disappointment in the end. A guy who couldn’t evaluate talent nearly as well as he did early in his career. And he was an unlikeable guy (which has always made me wonder how he sold Irsay on giving him the job).    But plenty of GMs fail to get there with a star QB...especially early in that QB’s career. Only one team gets to win the SB each year.    I mean...just look at Polian. He got there eventually...but he was gifted PFM...and didn’t win a playoff game until the 6th season. Grigs had won 3 by his 3rd season...and had just as many playoff appearances (3) as Polian over their first 5 seasons. Polian is a HOFer...but my point is that it’s not easy even when you get a great QB.   And as I have said before...Luck was great and my favorite player of all time...but he wasn’t quite Mahomes or Rodgers good...they are true Ferraris. He made mistakes and also didn’t exactly light it it up in January either. I think his prime would have been something to behold and maybe he would have taken his game to a new level...but injuries unfortunately derailed that (which I think many parties are to blame for...not just Grigs).   The guys on that list brought nothing to this org...Grigs at least managed to oversee a winning roster for years. A 49-31 record (.612 winning %) with a 3-3 playoff record, in 5 years, is far from a disaster. If you want to see what a true disaster looks like...it’s what has happened in HOU...where their FO has wasted a QB who (IMO) might be even better than Luck.   So far, Ballard has been superior in just about every facet. But the results are still the results. We can discount 2017...but without it the Colts are still just 28-20 (a .583 winning %) and 1-2 in the playoffs so far. Yes, he has only had Luck for one of those seasons...but that’s just another way of saying he needed Luck to win more games (to win more playoff games). And that’s the argument I always hear to vilify Grigs...that he only won because of Luck. Seems like a double standard...and not the only one.   I think most Colts fans have become huge fans of the process...and that’s great. It’s might be my favorite part of sports. But there are those that are still results-oriented...and I can understand why some might be asking what does it all without the results? This season will be huge to answering that question. 
    • Relax....i was paraphrasing a Bill Tobin quote . Tobin went off on Kiper when the Colts drafted Trev Alberta instead of Trent Dilfer.
