Frustrating observation


Recommended Posts

They get hot to start off going  14-0 then for whatever reason Reich changes up the play calling and adds in unnecessary things that messes up the rhythm.

 

Example we were pounding them start of the 3rd and for no reason plays Jacoby the 25 yard line and he throws the ball away wasting a down and stalling a promising drive. We get 3 and keep Watson in the game. We also got away from the running game far to often on one of the worst run Ds in the league. We made this game way harder than it should've bee.

A few things today.

 

1.  The Jacoby play was short term was too cute but long term good to get on tape to show teams the Colts can throw out of the package.  Teams were really packing the box vs that package.  

 

2.  The Texans really adjusted on defense and started playing much better after the quick start.  Give them credit they get paid too.  
 

3.  The Colts still moved the ball and scored for the most part.  I believe they had one punt and no turnovers.  
 

4.  The Colts went to the soft zone after they blew the assignment and gave up the long TD and elected to make the Texans make long drives and not make mistakes which to their credit they did.  The Colts third down defense was ugly to watch outside of the red zone.  Those long drives ate up the clock and made things look worse than it was.  
 

5.  At the end of the game the Colts defense made a play to win after the Texans defense failed to do so.  That’s why the Colts are 10-4 and the Texans are 4-10.

JB getting that 4th and 1 was huge and I agree with your #1. JB throwing will make other teams when they look at film think he is not always going to keep it and run. TY actually ran the wrong route on that play as well. It wasn't even #7's fault.

Yeah when I say short term it was too cute because it took them out of rhythm on that drive because pounding the ball was working not so much because I didn’t like the call.  Still long term it will be very good to remind people Jacoby can throw.

TY did not run the wrong route. It was a scramble drill at that point, TY settled down in the zone and Brissett wanted him to keep moving back to his left. Simple miscommunication from two guys who have not practiced together much.

I couldn't agree more.  Frank has to stop being so cute with his play calling.  We need to really use our run game to control the time of possession and make our play action more effective.  Just because we have a lot of plays in the playbook doesn't mean we have to use them all.  Our run game and JT in particular are really effective now.  Need to turn it up even more. If we make the playoffs and have to face Allen or Mahomes we need to keep the ball away from those guys.  The mobile QB's are very difficult for us to handle.  No need to give them more opportunities.  Run it to set up play action for the most part.  That is our strength.  Time to focus on our bread and butter and see if they can stop us.  We are good enough to control a game.  We just need to stop being cute and stop jeopardizing our momentum.

Yeah, the Colts on both offense and defense was "clutch". This is what winning teams do.

I can’t help it I like Jacoby and want him to do well.

He is a great teammate, I love the guy. He is always helpful and smiling. He is great on 3rd and 4th shorts too. I hope he wins the Walter Payton award. He has done a lot in the Indianapolis community for kids.

I will pull for Jacoby no matter where he ends up (as long as him winning doesn’t directly hurt the Colts and even then it’s nothing personal).

Yeah me too. The mountain man will probably view his options with different teams as a FA after the season. I don't blame him. For now, glad to have him as a great backup.

The most frustrating things this week to me were....

 

1. The D let a QB toss for 300+ again, I think 370ish. Dat's bad. Kept them off the board though with some luck + good plays.

2. The lack of 1st read designed targets to MAC. He was running wide open a lot. The one pass he caught, he was obviously the 3rd or 4th read, and just sat down on his route. Glad he was open to catch it when the play broke down, but he needs to be more involved.

3. I've only been in Indy for 2 days now, and my mom is already frustrating the hell out of me :-). Need prayers so that I last the week.

These are games we wouldn’t of won last season. As frustrating as these two Texans games were they are a division foe that know each other well. Good teams find ways to win games like these two Texan games and the Green Bay game. Now we just need to go beat Steelers. If we do that we might win the division.

Mom's will be mom's. The thing I was getting steamed about was giving up 3rd and longs again and again but Watson can do that to teams.

Jacoby could of picked up six or seven yards just by running. That was a terrible play by him and for Reich taking away our momentum. That wasn’t the spot to try that. I think it’s a good thing to have him do something different but not when your in the red zone about ready to score.

That was the purpose of the play, he never throws so by throwing it when teams look at film they won't take it for granted he is going to run.

Or if TY runs the right route it’s six and people are talking about what a great call it is.  Sometimes players impact things by either doing or not doing their job.  It’s not always a bad call by the coach just because it didn’t work.  It’s also good to get it on tape because teams are starting to put 10 or 11 in the box when Jacoby comes in.

Shoulda been 100 yard game for JT easy. Glad we won but its always hard to just go into a game and know for certain that the Colts are going to get a good convincing win. Its like just when you are gaining some confidence that very next game they make it much harder than it should be. Weve done that all year long.

That’s life in the NFL.  This isn’t college football where your conference protects you and gives you a chance to play for a title you didn’t earn because they want the money, well unless your New England with Brady.  Sorry the last part is still bitterness on my end more than directed at you.

For me it is about JB throwing a pass instead of taking the easy 6-10 yard gain running.  Ty may have messed up but JB still should have taken the sure yards.

To me it’s 20/20 hindsight.  These are the same throws people complained about Jacoby not trying last year.

Yup, they are. My mom is a total trip. She is famous with all my buddies going back 40+ years... I've got a to-do list literally a page long, and growing. Working my rear end off on vacation. I do it every year when I come back. 

 

3rd and longs are frustrating. It goes hand and hand with the 370+ yards. Our pass D breaks a lot. Just happy for the win right now. I was working around her house and I only had half my attention on the game, so can't really go deep on analysis, but it just felt like a typical Colts game this year. I'm going to watch again late tonight or tomorrow when I can kick my feet up.

Exactly. My mom's health has been bad for the last 3 years. Frustrating or not, every minute with her is a joy. Definitely blessed.

    • I doubt we grab Ertz if he is even cut (not looking likely). Plus why so many think Doyle gets cut for this move makes little sense. The coaches and Ballard love him. He gets the first down catches when we need him but more importantly he blocks better than majority of TE’s in the game. We are run heavy team so his value comes a lot more than just catches and yards. If for some reason they grab Ertz if cut then you pair him with Doyle to create a strong group not cut one and create a weakness.    I will say I doubt we grab a TE that will want 8mil per year. Even a 1 year deal doesn’t make sense for us here. After signing Fisher we have roughly 13 mil for the season. Ballard doesn’t like being strapped during the season. 
    • I think it could still happen   Doyle would be the casualty though    
    • Man I really like this signing!  If he can come back 80% as good as he has played I would say we def upgraded our offensive line and that’s no knock on AC I just think this guy can be much better (if healthy). I would put our offensive line up against anyone else’s.  With that said Murphy’s law keeps coming into my mind because we have soo many ifs and question marks for this team that we can literally be 6-10 bad or super bowl bound. I can’t think of any colts team with this many “if” question marks.   If wentZ can prove last year was a fluke and go back to being one of the best up and coming qb in the game than we are sitting pretty. If he plays like he did last year things will be very very ugly.    Then you got this guy. If fisher can come back healthy we can have one of the best lines in football. If he doesn’t play or is diminished we have a huge hole at one of the most important positions.      I don’t know why but I just have this feeling with so many question marks on this team, that the season could go either way. I do fear that  some of These question marks  aren’t going to go our way and we will be hurting. Btw  Some of these other question marks Include , Will Mack be back to his old self?   Was last year a fluke for our new stud RB? Will ty  hilton plAy any better, or will he continue to decline? Was last year a fluke for Xavier Rhodes? Will Paris cambell stay healthy and actually contribute?  How will our rookie DEs play?  Then you have  the question mark that every team has  which is who will stay healthy?  
    • The risk is of opportunity cost, not of losing that money. The risk is that we have now made our bet with the LT position and we are missing on more safe options, so if he doesn't recover or recovers and is not the same, we are very likely left with sub-par performance at LT for the year...
