Exposed.

The defense gave up 23 points against a good offense. Got 2 turnovers. Only conceded 3 points in the second half, and that was at the death.    Look they played poorly in the first half, but

nah Rivers threw the game away

I disagree.  The Browns are young, dynamic, up and coming, have a top 5 offensive line in football, leading sack leader in Garrett. 
 

Prior to the game today, Clev, has scored 30 plus points in three previous games.

 

Old man Rivers costed the Colts 8 points. 9 if you include the extra point.

Look they played poorly in the first half, but as a whole, they are a good unit. Are they elite? Probably not, but we have a good defense.

 

I think we need to add an extra pass rusher to complement Buckner and Houston. 

 

We missed Turay's pass rush today. Very badly. Muhammad showed it was speed rushers that would beat those tackles. Houston and Autry are more power guys.

Our defense is not overrated. Even the best defenses in NFL history have given up multiple 30 point performances in a season. Still the best in the NFL this season. More worried about the offense than the defense.

The defense kept us in the game. This was all Rivers. 9 point loss that Rivers gave them.

Let’s not forget the first half the defense gave up long drives for scores on all three drives.  I’ll say the defense adjusted and played much better in the second half but still at the end of the game even with the mistakes from Rivers, which can’t be over looked but that’s not the subject of this thread, the defense gave up two back breaking runs including one on 3rd and long when you knew the run was coming.  The defense can not be given a pass.  They made some costly mistakes today as well.

There play in the first half was poor. They were repeatedly beat by the same play design. They adjusted the 2nd half and kept us in the game.

 

Flus needs to get rid of the passive zone defense. It does us no good ever

Yes, I fully agree with that.  When the Colts defense plays aggressive they make plays like they did In the second half.  Unfortunately the 10 points they were down at half and the Rivers mistakes were too much to over come even when the defense showed up in the second half.

While I agree that they gave up the big runs, especially the one at the end, they kept us in the game. They held them to 3 points in the second half. Mistakes happen but this loss isn't on them.

They were also why they Colts were down 10 at the half.  Yes Rivers was awful, especially in the second half, but to just put the game all on him is over looking the mistakes the defense made.  That’s why coaches don’t just say it was all this or that’s fault.  You have to look at everything.  It’s very rarely just one player that costs you a game.

Like I said, mistakes happen and no teamz offense or defence plays perfect all season. Even the best defences have given up bad halves. Second half adjustments were made and they played well.

 

I get that the game isn't just Rivers fault, but he was the worst part of the team.

No it wasn’t and I am not going to defend Rivers.  More than one thing can not play well in a game.

Yes the O line was horrendous, but he was literally terrible, giving the Browns 9 points in the second half and costing us the game. He also had more throws that could have easily been picks or pick sixes. He threw to guys that were somewhat open and the throw was so bad the receiver was now covered. And his decision making was one of the worst I've ever seen(and I've watched Andrew Luck for 6 years). He's a big problem and will never be able to make a comeback win or a game winning drive.

 

I'm still confident in the team(mainly the defense), but I don't see us winning 10 games with Rivers at the helm. We'll probably squeak as a 6th or 7th  seed at 9-7 because the jags and Texans are so bad.

Why did Hines catch those punts inside the ten ? Possession before we constantly run the ball. Hines catches the punt inside the ten!! What do we do, first play, Rivers takes a deep drop and gives up a safety!!!! Brilliant!!! I wish Kelly was the Qb, at least he would throw the ball more than ten yards down the field and if necessary he would run!!!!

^^^Post of the thread.

 

Against a top 2 or 3 OL in the league, I will take this performance if the other side can hold its weight, which it did not.

 

The best thing about this year is Eberflus' adjustments have been swift. He doesn't wait 2 or 3 games, not even 2 or 3 quarters before he makes adjustments quickly. The offense, however, has left my head scratching. Hines down the middle, not chipping against Myles Garrett, the offensive play calling is more offensive even with the limited arsenal we had plus the QB's decision making was horrendous.

 

If you want to be objective, the D like you said is not elite but clearly a Top 10 D good enough to keep us in games. Peyton or Luck, for all your recollection did not win all their games by double digits, but when it mattered, they seized on a Mathis or Freeney turnover, and made it count. This offense showed us today it is incapable of cashing in.

    • My 'notables' here: -Ja'Marr Chase and Kyle Pitts in the top 3 after Trevor Lawrence. Not that I disagree... just notable.  -Zach Wilson over Justin Fields. I think I agree... although it's close.  -Trey Lance over Justin Fields... I'm not sure I agree with this one. But interesting nonetheless.  -Rashawn Slater over Penei Sewell... hard disagree... but I like Slater too, so... I just love Sewell  -Caleb Farley over Patrick Surtain... I think I agree... have to do a lot more study on the CBs though.  -Gregory Rousseau EDGE1 over Kwity Paye -Trevon Moehrig S1 -Jaelan Phillips in top 20... interesting to see how the league sees him. From what I've heard he has some off-field stuff that might impact his draft stock.  -Kadarius Toney top 20... yes! I love Kadarius too.  -Levi Onwuzurike at 23... haven't seen him yet... but I think this is the highest I've seen him on draft boards. Interesting.  -Tutu Atwell no.31 -Joe Tryon no 32... not sure I agree with this one...  -Christian Barmore at 37!! Wow. He's low on him... I've seen people mock him in top 10.  -Eric Stokes makes top 50... Campbell does not.    Very interesting read. Will have to go over some of the prospects ... 
    • I look forward to seeing the changes on this list. He has almost ever tackle as an NFL right tackle so we will see how he changes on that. 
    • It has more to do with our scheme than with our players' specific strengths IMO. This scheme relies heavily on the LBs and safeties ability to rally to the ball when the pass is completed and not so much on sticking with the receiver and disrupting his ability to catch(this is part of the frustration with the scheme for me... we allow short passes to be completed on a whim and then rely on the secondary line of defense to get there and limit the damage). The length for our LBs serves multiple purposes not just in pass-defense - it is also useful keeping clean from blocks with long arm when in pursuit of a RB or a pass-catcher.   BTW 7 passes defended is not a little for a LB. For example - Bobby Wagner has 8, Fred Warner has 6... Demario Davis has 5... Lavonte David has 6... It's very much in line with all the best LBs in the league. 
    • That contract for Xavier Rhodes is a 1 year deal for 3 million? I mean that is funny. I think he might be looking for a lot more than that. Plus I would not be shocked if he gets at least a two year deal.
