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.

    • Colts have won one playoff game in 6 seasons. Some more losing seasons and this team is no longer even in the top half of NFL franchises. They would be mostly irrelevant. I can’t imagine Irsay going for that.   Ballard is definitely safe...but this is year 5 and I am assuming there is a bit more urgency than just waiting for the perfect opportunity to come along.
    • Supplement with draft picks. Ballard has had a few rookies playing significant snaps every year...so we could assume the same this year. Plus...you have some  younger players who could take a step forward next season.  Also...there’s player for player swaps that can be explored.   I think you could easily replace everyone on that list except Houston and Rhodes. And I would keep MAC as a cheap TE2.   A big FA contract will put a strain on the cap...which is why a rookie QB would be huge. But I also think this is their chance to spend on a premium non-QB position or two.   But another way to burn cap space is to re-sign a bunch of outgoing vets...essentially paying more money for the same team components (in many cases). If that was a list of FAs...I would probably be interested in a few of them at most. But that’s just me...and I am sure other teams will be interested in each of them on some level...so this seems like a great chance to shift some cap space to quality (instead of quantity) and accrue some comp draft capital...even if it’s mid-late Day 3 picks.
    • Ok.   Appreciate the response.   I thought you were going to say they were typo’s, but apparently not.   Alright, we see it differently.  Nothing wrong with that.  It’s what makes the world go around.    Thanks again....
    • Well I guess it’s Jacoby time again
    • Some team will gamble on Hooker. He will only be 25 and he’s a former lottery pick with huge talent. A $7M AAV would put him just inside the top 15...just ahead of guys like Ricardo Allen, Vonn Bell and Tre Boston. I think a team would look to lock in a second year team option of sorts...but maybe not. Either way...he should have suitors and will have an opportunity to at least get a good one-year deal to rebuild value. Edit: Obviously this is assuming Hooker has recovered and can pass a physical. If not, then he probably gets half that and possibly might not even be signed until during the season.    Rhodes was a top 10 player last season...at a premium position. He produced a ton of value on his cheap pillow contract...and now he gets to cash in. With a very good track record (even at his age), he is going to command a nice 2-3 year deal to finish out his career. A $12M AAV would pay him just outside that top 10 range for CBs...and this deal is similar to the one that Haden signed with PIT after having a late-career resurgence.  Knowing Ballard...I am sure he would structure it in a way that they could get out after one year if Rhodes fell apart. But given the current state of the CBs...they almost have to re-sign him.
