The winless Jets (0-2) visit the Indianapolis Colts (1-1) who are coming off a dominating win against the Minnesota Vikings. The Colts are looking to build on momentum from that victory with another w

Rivers benched. I knew we shouldn't have signed him

Does he have a grandma? Just wondering....

Taylor ignores the open hole to run into his OL

 

He's not been very patient today.  He's just pressing the hole.  Not using his vision, or allowing time for blocks to be set up.

He's young but it is a somewhat worrisome.  There's been a few mind boggling runs he's had over the past few games where all he had to do was bounce it out for potential big yardage.  That's the kind of stuff Trent Richardson did.  However I'm hopeful that it's correctable.

Yup, Taylor’s vision has been my question about him.

 

I really think Wilkins would be getting more yards.

Love how Mack would bounce out and get 20 yards on those .

Taylor’s vision looking suspect. I think he’s running “too” fast in a sense. Over running his holes. Needs to show a little more patience. He can make up for it with his burst. Maybe needs a fullback for a while?

    • Sure puts everything in perspective, as far as importance of things! Rigo’s a young, healthy guy and this was thankfully caught early, giving him a better than average chance of beating it.
    • No, he still had time left on his contract with the Colts when he retired. 
    • Thoughts and prayers to Rigoberto and his family.  Wish them all the best, all the strength, all the peace, and patience to get through.   I'm relieved to hear that it seems they caught it early.  Hopeful that he will ultimately be ok and back with the team relatively soon.  
    • Flip flopping the oline is not the answer imo. Keep the other starting four right where they are. The chemistry at least remains intact there. Replace just the LT best you can. If not keep te there or back to help protect. 
    • Beginning to wonder if MJC is Ryan Grigson himself.... He’s not been perfect and I’d like for him to be better and take less projects but compared to what we had with the prior regime, it’s a night and day difference.    so I chose to do some research. This comes from Forbes, Bleacher Report and Walter Football as none of them had complete stats by themselves.    The average career length in the NFL is 3.3 years. So since all the above defined draft success as the percentage of starters from each round starting for their team that chose them, I did the same and looked at data showing the percentages of starters that came from each round for the last 3 years. This includes all 3 phases, O and D, and Special Teams.  Per the above sources: percentages of starts by players taken in each respective rounds combined since 2017.    1st Round- 29.9 percent league wide. 2nd Round- 19.4 percent league wide 3rd Round - 11.6 percent league wide. 4-7- 26 percent combined  Undrafted- 13.1 percent. League wide.     now for Ballard, taking ONLY his picks, not previous regime players that are still on the team. Special teams starters are NOT included in this. Just first string O and D.    1st Round- Hooker,Nelson,Buckner(via trade): 2/3 currently starting, 1 on IR that was a starter but that is likely gone at the end of the year, so I’m counting that as a loss. 66.7 percent.    2nd round: 10 picks: 7/10 have become starters. 70 percent.    3rd round: 3 picks, 2/3 starters, that being Bobby O and Blackmon. 66.7%   4th thru 7 rounds: 5/24 or 20.8 percent(this number would jump a few points if I counted special teams.)   Yes, Ballard is above the league Average in getting starting results in rounds 1-3 but below average 4-7....
