Hit him in the hands. If you're an elite WR, you make those catches. Diggs already made 2....

Nah man. He totally had to stop and wait for a second. Luck would've hit him in stride.

Two bad drops on that drive, especially by TY - that ball was right in both hands!

That was a really good pass. No problem with accuracy there.

Ridiculous

This is like saying OHio state is clearly superior to clemson after one quarter .... It may be true today, but we all know it's not clear cut, if even true....

Is this a joke? The ball hit the receivers hands, he has to come down with it.

Breaking stride didn't help ty there.

Stats don’t win games. Execution does.

Sure, but doesn't change the fact that Taylor has the best catch % in the NFL of all positions, and has a better YAC and AVG than Hines IIRC. It's intellectually dishonest to dismiss the tape and pure stats.

Colts D has to generate some turnovers. I get those things can be fluky, but we need them today

 

Bills are too good to expect them to be held in check.

Posted about this earlier in the week..

 

The Colts struggle so bad at the 40 yard line. I have no idea why. We have to score TD's and not FG's. 
 

We have had 3 possessions inside their 45 and have come away with 3 points. 
 

That is the exact opposite of what we have to do to win. The Colts said it themselves. We are going to have to play lights out D

The biggest problem I see with Rivers & Hilton is that Rivers doesn’t have the zip he used to have & TY has a habit of waiting on the ball instead of “going to get it”.   Waiting always allows for the defender to recover & interrupt the catch.

Have you seen the catches Diggs has made already? Sorry man, passes aren't always perfect. Elite WRs make adjustments and contested grabs.

I mentioned a few days ago that while Rivers can do some intermediate stuff, the 2 things that you need in today's NFL are mobility/run, and the ability to throw the ball downfield 20 yards or more with RPM/spin.

 

So far that is 3 balls that Rivers has thrown today more than 20 yards that lacked velocity and if they had been throw with a little more?  Would have been completed. 

 

It really is that simple and it is going to be a reason why the Colts can't go all the way this year.

 

And they never will with Rivers.

My goodness. The chicken littles are out EARLY today. 

 

Especially when at this point anything outside a loss is just gravy. We made the playoffs, but I think we all realistically now we're not on the level of some contenders. Bills have got their guy, fair play to them.

Agree 100%. This has been a problem especially last week.

You do know TY is older and 3'-5" right?  He's never been a player to attack passes.... He should be running crosses at this point, we just don't.....

    • Thanks!   I’m looking forward to seeing TY do his thing this year.   In some ways, he reminds me of Marvin; great hands, good route-runner, gets open and he’s smart. He may protect himself against vicious hits but Marvin did the same.     Maybe he doesn’t have the yards that some #1s have but that may be a product of a system that spreads the ball around. Some call him average or mediocre. If that’s what average or mediocre looks like, I’ll take it! 
    • Pacers are an amazing organization IMO.  They’ve assembled competitive teams for most of the last 25 years with very few high draft picks and not much FA draw to the square city in the middle of a cornfield.   They stink because of injury.  I’m pretty bullish in them assuming a return to the court for all these injured guys.  Are you?
    • The Seahawks allocated about 20% of the cap to the oline, raves about 12,  and 2011 NYG about 15.  That is what this thread is  about, cap economy.
    • In one of the posts I’ve said it’s possible that the Colts are revolutionizing football which happens every so often.  It’s not likely statistically because these type of changes happen once or twice a decade or so.   I said think the rules dictate that the passing game is the most efficient way to score.   One thing that might favor such a revolution, is the fact that since the rules are set up for passing success, teams have adjusted their personnel characteristics,  smaller LBs, nickel base ds.  It’s possible that  emmit smith era emphasis will come back.  I doubt it though.  You still are going to need to throw it into the end zone.
    • I’m not talking about having a great oline.  I’m talking about spending 30 to 40% of your cap in them..  Of course having a great o line is helpful.     The Hoggs aren’t recent.
