Yeah man but I think we have the top ranked D in football, and just gave up 17 to Balt.  We get turnovers at a high rate, etc. so sometimes people who think they know football are really not all that knowledgable about it.

 

When it comes down to it East, anyone who's coached at any level knows this profundity:

 

It's not the Xs and the Os, it's the Jimmies and the Joes.

We'll see if the Jimmies and Joes can do the same when their SoS isn't 32nd.

I sure hope they can. I doubt it though.

Yep, this is a huge issue with Reich. He forgets what works, and gets too stubborn when his game plan isn't working. Those sail routes to Moe that worked so well a few games ago would have been perfec

I'm saying this about coaching. I'm saying the high ranking is a product of playing bad teams, therefore not truly #3.    That is why the D coaching gets a C+ from me. Our blitz % is bottom

My biggest disappointment is the inconsistency. When something works on offense we never see it again. Where is the MAC we saw the first three games. Where was the Hines we saw last week. This offense

Getting circular here. Like I said, we haven't played anyone. Our SOS is near the bottom. I'm not happy getting an A+ in remedial reading. Need to be able to grade well in advanced lit as well. 

 

And never blitzing before, doesn't mean blitzing more now, wouldn't help. 

 

BTW, we have no idea what Frank does or doesn't do when it comes to the D. Looking at Flus's background, it's very different. 

Dude you want to complain about the strength of schedule that's fine but they have to play who they have to play....nobody on the colts have say so on who they play for the season and as long they play tough and 100% their best I don't care who the opponent is I'm just glad the effort is there.....it's been said numerous times during interviews that eberflus calls the defensive plays even frank said that himself lol

What did you think of the coaching tonight?

 

Jonathon Taylor has been holding the offense back.  He should not play much.

Look at Taylors carries. When, where, down and distance, etc.. He was mainly up the gut in short yardage obvious situations. If you don't understand the comparative carries between the him and the other backs, I can't help you.

 

The game plan (let Rivers be Rivers) was better today. The play calling in many down and distances was still just bad. Rivers carried us tonight. He was allowed to attack intermediate and deeper than last week (when he was given a ton of first read short shots).

I’ve looked at every carry he’s taken the whole year at least twice.

are they not typically earlier in games when Ds are fresh, more up the gut than our other RBs, and on more obvious running downs? Simple questions......

    • Tony Romo a good Broadcaster? hahaha ok we can agree to disagree on that one. But the Lol was towards ESPN for always trying to add everyone however i would love to listen to Rivers talk.
    • Mo is a Free Agent as well. Doyle is under contract though. 
    • During an off-season where people are screaming about how bad the interview process is being handled by teams over-looking African-Americans....   Houston now pours gasoline on the fire by interviewing a guy who was mostly a career backup who has not coached at all in the NFL.   And they’re interviewing him for Head Coach.   Not QB coach coach.   Not OC.   But head coach.    A worse look the Texans could not be putting out there.   Feel bad for McGowan.   A huge mistake by the Texans.   Or should I say...   yet another self inflicted mistake by Houston.    Josh McGowan may be a good head coach someday.  But that day is not today.    Embarrassing. 
    • Lance also wasn't playing vs SEC and Pac-12 defenses like Eason was. Lance well could be special, but likely not in 2021 and maybe not in 2022 either--which IMO is where the Colts' most likely Super Bowl window is, especially w/ their OLs and Leonard, Taylor and Pittman signed to their current contracts.   I think Ballard & Reich have to decide if they do feel their window is now, with the current OL and defense (with or without Eberflus), in which case I think they really have to try for another veteran QB. If they don't feel that way, fine, then start a post-Luck modified rebuild either w/ Eason, Lance, or some other new guy, while trying to hold on to Nelson, Leonard, etc as long as possible.
