The offense needs to get better.


Recommended Posts

Different week same old results for the offense. WE NEED TOUCHDOWNS! simple as that. We cannot keep moving the football and settlings for FGs. Everyone wants to blame the defense, but even when they were getting stops, the offense couldn't capitalize. We can't play like this and expect to win.

seems like we have no problem getting TD on opening drives after that I don't know what happens?

I know people are going to rain on Rivers and he deserves it for his two interceptions.  But on a bigger scale, the Colts offensive gameplan just annoys me to no end.  There is so little rhythm.  They will run Taylor three times and do well, then setup in shotgun with Hines in the backfield and do something.  It reminds me of Pep Hamilton where they get too cute for their own good.  I wish they would just line up and do what they do well instead of constantly changing the personal and attack around.

The offense needs a QB and much better play calling, especially in the red zone.  The color guy pointed it out the area the browns have problems with is passes down the seems and then they lose both safety’s yet the Colts attacked that area on like two passes.  Then trying to single cover the best pass rusher in football with your back up left tackle?  Really?  Then the 3rd down pass late in the game in the redzone you throw well short of the first down and never really had a chance.  Fair catching punts inside the 10 is so dumb and then you come out and try to throw when you had just had success running the ball and you know you have been having trouble with pressure all day?  I am for the Colts being more aggressive but that was not the time or place.  
 

That’s not even talking about Rivers poor decision making when he’s behind.  He’s making decisions that rookie QBs make.  That’s not inexcusable for someone who has the experience he does.  If he’s going to play like a rookie you might as well play Eason and let him learn or at the very least if you are going to play dink dunk put the QB in in Jacoby that does that and doesn’t make the poor decisions Rivers is making when behind.  
 

At least they only called the give it to Hines up the gut on second down play one time today.

Injuries CAN and WILL ruin a season.

Too many players are missing from this projected starting roster to make the playoffs.

 

Not injuries  poor decision making  of rivers.

Dave Degug... whatever it is, wasn't the coach last year and the o line was pretty good. The o line was so bad today because we were missing our most valuable  o lineman. And the run blocking this season has been so bad because I think teams know that if we can't run on them then we surely won't pass on them. So it's mainly just teams committed to stopping the run game and just letting Rivers be Rivers and that's why we have 2 losses.

Blankenship  is our best offensive weapon. We aren't  going  ti win many  games if that remains  the case

All good points...I definitely don't understand catching it inside the 10 also, you're already inside the 10 so give it a chance to maybe bounce into the end zone because what's the difference between the 2 yard line or the 8?

 

Without breaking everything down, I expected a more dynamic O when Frank came to town.

Yeah what’s going to happen the browns down it at the one and you might give up a safety?  Oh wait...

The offense, as a whole, sux.  I have no confidence in them scoring TD's, at least after the first drive.  Some of that is injuries, no doubt.  Some of it is poor play calling.  Some of it is poor decision making.    Some poor execution.  But it is ALL on the offense.

The fact that we have consistently scored in the beginning of games, including passing the ball deep successfully, tells me that we have the capability.

 

Only way to explain why we fail after the first TD is play calling.  Coaches really need to get this figured out, because there is enough talent on the roster.

Rivers threw the game away again this 2 games that rivers lost, Guy need to go next year

I'm counting 1.  Our D let Minshew go 19/20 and 3 TDs.  And Rivers put us in position at the end, but TY got the dropsies.

 

Yesterday can be placed on Rivers, even with the terrible offensive game plan from Reich.

One thing that is hurting our passing game with Rivers, and also hurt the Chargers last year, is not having a speed receiver.  I think we are really missing Campbell.

 

That said, our game plan has to change on offense.  Even the announcers pointed out that TY seems to be running underneath stuff exclusively over the last two years.  He is likely the only deep threat we have...use it.  And get MAC the freaking ball while we are at it.

    • Which if he’d had any balls, he’d refused. 
    • By now most should realize the Colts prefer to retain their own as much as possible.  The defense is much improved with the signing in place but always room for improvement at key positions.  Below is my FA/resign list have already put together mid-season.   Colts FA ~58m: QB Jacoby Brissett 21.3 WR T.Y. Hilton 14.5 TE Jack Doyle 8.5 RDE Denico Autry 5.7 ILB Anthony Walker 2.2 S Tavon Wilson 750k DB Tremon Smith 750k (keeper?) WR Marcus Johnson 582k (practice squad) S Malik Hooker 4m WR Ashton Dulin 542k   Resign ~ 90m QB Philip Rivers 26.3m (probably will drop) DE Justin Houston 11m (3-4 good years left like Mathis and Freeny) DB Xavier Rhodes 8m RG Mark Glowinski 6.9 (improved game this year) RDT Grover Stewart 7.5m (most improved player on defense) DE Al-Quadin Muhammad 3m OL Le’Raven Clark 1.2m DB T.J. Carrie 1.2m (special teamer) TE Trey Burton 4.5m S George Odum 1.25 TE Mo Alie-Cox (RFA) – 6.25m DT Taylor Stallworth 1m (otc hit 4.8m in 1 game) LT Chaz Green 850k (special teams) WR Zach Pascal 7m RB Marlon Mack 4m (when healthy proved to be lead back) C Joey Hunt 300k RG Jake Eldrenkamp 200k (special teamer) Edge Cassius Marsh 250k (special teamer) TE Farrod Green 200k (practice squad) S Ibraheim Campbell 200k (special teamer)
    • Originally was thinking we would be closer to 100 mil in cap space but sounds more like 75 mil.  Kind of why for this example only budgeted ~40 mil for FAs after calculating ~95 mil to resign players while leaving a minimum of 20 mil to sign draftees.  This should still allow discretionary cap space for the Club to do as needed short-term.
    • I still have Patrick Jones II at the top of my early 2021 NFL Draft Board.  Would be happy to acquire either Weaver or Jones.  Other top names have seen but truthfully haven't been impressed with them as have been with these two players at RDE.
    • No one gets stoned anymore in civilized societies!   Wait, that didn't sound right...
