Nashville Sports Radio Idiocy


Recommended Posts

Its ridiculous listening to Nashville Sports Radio, which are obviously Titans Homer Biased. One of the radio hosts still isn't impressed by Indy's defense even after they shellacked the Titans last night. He basically said their kicking game was the reason the Titans lost, and completely neglected the fact that Indy's defense dictated that game, along with Rivers and Hines being able to do what they wanted on offense. 

 

I live in Nashville, TN and it's hilarious how moronic these local homers sound.

I bet Tannehill is still soaking in the cold tub so I bet he disagrees how great our D is  

I've listened to DD.  There can be no greater radio idiocy, regardless of state.

I'm in Glasgow, KY and Tennessee circle pulling is all I hear on the radio. Even this morning they were saying the same thing, and how this is still a Super Bowl caliber team. The Colts got lucky, and we'll do good to win another game this season.

Yes there are homers.  If the situation were reversed, a lot of Colts fans would be blaming the loss on special teams.  Not the Tenn D.

I've listened to Indy Sports radio and they aren't nearly the homers Nashville, TN sports radio hosts are.

Try listening to Nashville sports radio hosts. They are much worse. They thought the Titans did absolutely nothing wrong when they were criticized nationally for being careless with COVID protocols by practicing when they were advised not to.

Ok my man.  I would be willing to bet that Titans fans think Indy sports guys are bigger homes.

I'm not too sure of the sports radio being over the top homers in Indy. 

The top two are JMV and DD and they aim mostly negative at the Colts.

To be honest, they were neck-to-neck with us till their special teams gaffes blew the door open - a shanked punt and a blocked punt resulted in 14 points. However, their D is no Steelers or Ravens D, we could all see that. No wonder the Bengals rang their number by putting up 31 on them. Heck, the Vikings put up 30 on them and lost by a FG if I remember right.

 

They sure will give us their best shot when they come to Indy, gotta be prepared. They will be more healthy then on their OL, D (Adoree Jackson back at CB) and possibly get back their starting punter as well. We will find out.

They gave us some fits here and there so I can sort of see if they have some doubts about our D.  Even if its not entirely real.

We'll play them much better in game two up in Indy I am almost certain of it.

Several things.

 

First, division games in this league are always harder to predict than any other games, because the teams know each other so well, they could go an almost infinite number of ways. It really boils down to which team executes better that given game than anything else going into the game. What happened last night will have almost nothing to do with what happens two weeks from Sunday in Indy.

 

Next, regardless of what happened last night, and Indy's defense really did throttle the Titans most of that game, the Titans offense is no fluke. They have a number of ways to beat teams, and they're usually very good at each of them. So I wouldn't just assume that we're all going to see a repeat two weeks from Sunday in Indy. It rarely goes that way in rematches. If I were Flus and the Colts defensive staff, I'd be also thinking about how I'd adjust on offense to what Indy did to shut them down most of last night, and prepare for them to try to do exactly that in two and a half weeks, instead of just prepare for the same things they saw last night.

 

Finally, being new here because of Philip, the LAST thing I'd call the Indy sports coverage is "a bunch of homers". Crap, it seems to me like every one of them depicts Philip as the favored son of Satan if he has even just one bad throw in a game, ha ha. I'm actually shocked they didn't blame him for Wilkins going wussy mode on the pass that should have been a first down just outside the goal line last night. Had the Colts lost, I have no doubt they would have. Things like that that I've read so far this year aren't anywhere close to a sports press community qualifying as homers.

Hey, I got some family right down the road from ya in Smith's Grove.  I'm honestly surprised the radio stations take the time to talk about anything other than UK in that area.

Indy's D held Henry to 103 yds, Tannehill to 147yds and 1 td. and Brown to 1 catch for 21 yds. 

Going into this game the Titans averaged 28 points a game and scored 17.

So saying the Colts D dictated was not a stretch. 

Not only did they dictate, they dominated too.

IMO the reality was the Titans had been able to hang in and win games in the 4th quarter on teams that lack top notch defenses. 

Last night they faced the best defense they have faced all year. They did hang 24 on the Steelers and the Bears.

I think despite all that if you take away the 2 ST gifts the score is 20 to 17.

 

Great win overall though

I honestly don't get what the titans have to brag about. Since 2012, they have beaten us only 3 times. Their own HC who everyone deems the next great HC is 1-4 against us.

It will be a tough game in the rematch.  Adjustments will be made.  The Titans will need to win it to stay in the division race.  I wouldn't overlook that game at all.  But it's one I think we can win of course.  In fact, I think we CAN win the rest except Pittsburgh.  That place is a house of horrors for Colts fans and I can't even remember the last time we got a W there.  Likely won't be this year either unfortunately.  But the rest of the schedule is very doable.  I'm still sticking with my 10 win pre-season prediction.

I had us 4 - 5 at this stage but finishing 9 - 7 but what do I know

Need to be factual here. Sure Nash guys are homers, we should expect that, but that doesn't mean they aren't directionally correct. 

 

1. Our D in the first half wasn't good at all. We gave up scores on 3 of 4 drives.

2. Giving up 17 in pts in half is just not good. Our D was only giving up 20pts a game. We gave up 17 in the first half.

3. Henry still rushed for 100+ yards and near his season average, and was well above his season average for YPC (5.4 vs 4.7).

4. Before the shank and the blocked punt for a TD, we were down 17-13. Those two plays turned the game and led to 14 pts putting us up 10 instead of down 4. Then they missed a FG after that.

 

In short, TN's running game is their bread and butter, and sets up their pass. They are not a team that plays well down by multiple scores. Their kicking game woes contributed to a 17 point differential. Our D had little to do with that. Those issues made them predictable late in the game and easier to defend. Our passing game, and our STs, flipped the game and won it for us.

 I was impressed by the TN play calling. After watching the game again, I expect a tight rematch. The Colts played well and if they can get Turay back, look out.

  As far as Indy sports talk guys, most predicted TN would win. I hear a lot of negativity from guys like DD, JMV, Mike Wells and Steven Holder. Even K Bowen predicted TN.

  I’d be willing to bet, most of us Colts fans, living in other cities, resent the home team.

If AJ Brown had caught that deep shot (of which he was wide open on) he’d have taken it for 6 and we would have likely been down 2 scores... and who knows what happens from there...?

 

Colts won handily in the end, but the game could easily have swung the other way. I don’t like rivers playing catch-up and forcing throws.

    • 100% get what you saying in respects to Nelson and Leonard. They do not play Premium positions and are going to command huge contracts. Contracts that no doubt they will have earned based off their play.   However, this could have a huge impact at other Premium positions moving forward.    That’s on Ballard to figure out and as long as the Colts are successful, it’s all good.   I agree with what your trying to articulate and I “think” it’s okay to have an opinion here, unless your think Ballard is not God.    Go Colts!         
    • I would be surprised if Houston wasn't re-signed as the Colts pretty much need him and he might get more money elsewhere.  There may not be a player that can make an immediate impact at 21 at the Edge position.  Plus the depth of OT would be the wiser move at 21, since you are more likely to get a better quality player at OT.    I can't see the Colts starting the season with Lewis, Turay(if he can even stay healthy), Banogu, Muhammed, and possibly Rochell, without seriously considering the need for Houston's experience.
    • To your point though at the end of the season Ballard said he had young talent on the dline and needs to see what is there. He wanted to see if anyone is worth keeping. This was said after being asked about the FA’s we had plus money we had.    I see a draft pick being spent here but not much more. He wants to see if Turay has it and can stay healthy. What can Lewis do with majority of the snaps. Rochelle is young and could become something. You still have Mohammad who could take off. Banogu might take a giant leap who knows but Ballard wants to know. I want Turner to get drafted by us and allow him to blossom but that might just be a wish. Regardless I use to think Houston was an after the draft guy for us but I am doubting that now. Other than the draft I think Ballard is fine with the young roster. 
    • Houston is pretty decent but he doesn't elevate our pass rush so much. And historically few rookies come in and make much difference in year one. I don't think Ballard really wanted Autry, TY, or likely Houston back. He wanted them to sign for Big $$$ and get the comp picks.
    • Hey, you could work for the Presidential "not true" department any time.
