I def did, cuz until that point he hasn't consistently shown he can. Lets hope he continues

Reich's O is not a push-it-downfield offense. 

It's a dink/dunk and occasion shot O. 

Maybe you need to reset your expectations lol...

Your Indianapolis Colts (3-2) look to return to winning ways when they face the Cincinnati Bengals (1-3-1) at home this Sunday. They will play this one without TE Mo Alie-Cox (Out), T Chaz Green (Out)

Keeping a player down when a team is running hurry up is unsportsmanlike conduct refs,  you’ve called every tricky tack call you can make against the Colts call the obvious ones on the bengals please.

Ahh Blackmon... fast becoming a gamechanger

Yeah , it was getting a little ridiculous over the past week hearing how Brissett can give equal play.

 

I still maintain that if the O-line (specifically run blocking) and defense played like expected, Rivers is able to function and succeed as designed

Rivers has definitely cost us, but you're spot on. There's a lot of other things contributing to our woes than just Rivers.

I swear. This team gets an inflated ego when they have some success.

Right? Yelling and hollering and celebrating like they’re so badass? Like look at the scoreboard hooligans... you’ve given up 24 points in one half. 
 

Hey that’s a great name for our defense! The Hooligans, or maybe Boneheads?

No. 99 times out of 100 a snap to your backup TE is going nowhere. Or worse. We got lucky with the play, now get rid of it because it won’t work ever again. 

 

So your focusing on what didn't happen on that play more than what did lol, that's a new level of looking at a glass half empty. It was one trick play that got the TD.

But don’t worry if they play well in the second half when the bengals go into don’t make a mistake mode with a big lead and Rivers throws an inevitable pick when teams know he has to take chances this will all be rivers fault and there will be thread talking about how elite the defense is.

Yup. Rivers is the easy target for folks that can't see the other issues. Most folks don't understand zone from man, let alone different coverages, and have zero clue how to critique OL performance or play calling. INTs are just the bright shiny objects.

    • Ok that's a good point man. I'm curious about your opinion on this one. What if you had a guy like Okereke doing James Farrior like things? You've got a good FS. I see both sides of this argument. It's an interesting conundrum. Solid push every single down with a little trickery. Also if you have a solid running game it makes play calling so much easier and whoever you put in there is going to have an easier job. Just theorizing man.
    • 12 sacks and avg vs the pass? Yeah hed be a tweener with us from what i saw he plays inside and outside.
    • I think Flus simply needs to blitz more to be honest. Between the lack of blitzing and stunting, and our soft zone, I just can't envision our pass rush getting a lot better even with an upgrade at DE. Not blitzing/stunting let's the OL settle in, and makes their jobs much easier. And playing soft zone allows easy pass after easy pass, and almost makes it impossible for coverage sacks. Just not sure why we stay so conservative.    On RO, I'd have to look at those last 4-5 opponents last year. If he played at a high level all year that's one thing, but he played mediocre for 4.5-4.75 years, and looks fantastic only in the last 4-5 games? The situation just needs more context and digging.    
    • No doubt any move is a gamble of some kind or another. If its an older guy, is the player injury prone or on the downhill side of his career? If a younger guy, will he still perform with serious coin in his pocket for the first time? But in the end, you have to look at recent production. If the guy has a good rep for being a hard worker and improved his play such that he's become an impact player, he's worth the gamble, IMO. Maybe not for a contract longer than 3 years, but I like taking a shot at an ascending talent.    More importantly, if you believe, as I do, that the defense HAS to get much better at rushing the passer, especially since our D coordinator seems to have a serious allergy to blitzing, then the push to find that missing piece has to take its place front and center over other needs. 
    • This kid could make things really interesting and turn that flat-butt 4-3 into something really special with corners who can press. The scheme could be really sneaky good with that personnel.
