Man, all we're good calls. But, the Colts never get a break. It's like the football Gods have hated us. 
 

We should have 17-21 points right now. Ridiculously good starting field position.

If we lose I could care less if I ever see turay wear a colts uniform ever again. Just *ic. My 5 yr knew they were going to try and draw us offsides. How do you play a game from childhood and make that mistake. You make more than doctors and lawyers. This stuff should be as close to robotic as possible but nope not turay.

In all fairness, had we taken the fg they would have scored any way.  13-14

Still better than 10-14. Also, when the Bills score to begin the 2nd half, it’ll be 10-21. Kick the FG and it’s still a one possession game

That’s exactly why you kick the FG.

They score a Td and you’re down 1. Now they get the ball to start the third and can go up two possessions.

 

You’re coaching yourself out of your own gameplan. 

Username is valid lol

Seems crazy that the Colts are not winning.  And like I said at the time, ugh, Frank, you gotta take the 3 pts!  You are almost ALWAYS failing in these situations!  How many failures does it take before these bloody nonsensical analytics flip to favoring taking the FG points?!

Reich getting to cute in the end zone is going to cost us again. We should be up big. Reich should of went for the FG. Now it will be 21-0 after they start the half. This team just can’t score in the red zone.

We would t have been up big anyway...unless you consider 17-14 a big lead....what are you figuring would have been different?

I haven’t been able to watch the game just seeing play by play on ESPN every 10 mins or so.  Why in the hell did we not kick a FG on 4th & 4???  Could’ve went into halftime 13-14 wow wth happen!?

So this is what it looks like to have a great quarterback.  I would say the Colts are better than the Bills in every facet of the game besides for the QB position but it simply doesn't matter.  Can you imagine how great this team would be with a Manning or Luck.  Unfortunately we won't have one of those for another couple decades if we ever do so welcome to mediocrity boys.

Rubbish. The play was there on 4 and 4. Blame the qb and wr. They score and everyone is calling Frank a god. Blame the players not the coach

It was foresight too.


Jacoby quarterback sneak is a wasted play moving forward. Does Frank seriously think that anyone is not going to see it from a mile?

Some bad play calling. 


Some bad wr play.
 

Horrible play by Turray.

 

Some bad luck with the hail mary plays the Bills made and the reviews that stood, and this is what happens.

 

Fact is the Colts should have taken those 3 points at the end of the half. 

I don’t hate going for it there on 4th. I hate the preceding toss play that almost always lose yards if not completely whiffed by the defense. We throw there and miss it and then option of running on 4th inside at the 2 vs the 4, it’s achievable. Reichs goal line play calling is cringeworthy almost every time.

Seeing as we are against the world's greatest running qb, not to mention the most massive human being to ever play under center apparently..... We're not out of it yet.

colts are shooting themselves in the foot the dropped wide open pass would of gave the colts at least another 3 points the bad play calling would of given the colts another 7 . colts should have 20 points right now.  now the bills can go up 21 to 10 after the half

    • Again in terms of projecting values out, this all depends on how we see Braden Smith valued.    I said to go high at $10M a year based on a few things:   1) If you asked many people is Braden Smith a top-5 RT, most would say no. I think he is. either way a top-5 RT slots in at an AAV of $10M a year right now   2) Most of the guys getting top $ at RT got that top dollar by getting it on the open market. Lane Johnson is the exception. However, the Eagles gave him that extension when there was originally talk about him moving to LT as Peters aged. The guys that signed extensions with their current teams got $10M a year or less.    3) This is to say I think Smith can totally get over $10M a year if he hits the open market and wants to test the waters. However, if the Colts looked to extend him now and give him financial security as a 2nd round pick that has not made much money yet in his career and did so in a year where the cap came down and a lot of players are going to take less money if they are not a superstar, I think him signing a deal averaging $10M a year would be a win for him and the Colts     At the end of the day, my entire point of this thread was to simply point out that us investing $50-$55M in a starting OL out of a future cap of around $200-$220M is very, very doable and arguably reasonable in terms of how Ballard likes to build through the trenches. Having an OL tie up 25% of your cap and a combined OL and QB tie up less than 40% of your cap for the next 3-4 years is actually very, very reasonable.   I have admittedly been a big advocate for Trent Williams. He is aging, sure. But he has shown no signs at all of slipping. And he even has one less year of wear and tear on his body from sitting out a year with the whole tumor fiasco where Washington really didn't do right by him with their medical team. So would I throw a 4 year deal at him with big money where the only guaranteed money was paid out in the first two years and then there were salaries on the back end that can easily allow a cut if the performance dips? Absolutely.   Either way, this was really to just get our base chatting about all this since the canned narrative everyone is spitting out is the same narrative that is being fed to fans from the media that says "they'll have too much tied up in their OL with the extension for Kelly and the upcoming extensions for Nelson and Smith." I'm just saying if we managed things the way guys like Mike Bluem have been, then we can comfortably invest in a top FA  LT if we wanted to without it being overly painful downstream. 
    • I personally do not like the idea of trying to come up with a stop gap or developmental guy at the most inportant position on the OL. Solidify that position with a dependable proven LT whether it  Villanueva or someone else. Same with DE. Find a proven pass rusher and pay him. Use the draft or WR, CB and solidifying other positions including OL. I think we are very close to being in  SB contention and 3 to 4 good players may push us over the top. We can't foolishly throw money at these guys but if we are prudent we have plenty of money to carry us.
    • Yeah, my little voice partly thinks the same (perhaps contract year type of performance). I just hate saying it out loud, as he was considered very very raw when drafted. He was used all over the place at USC, and relied way too much on his natural gifts instead of technique. Maybe he was a bit lazy, but it's also possible he was just raw, wasn't able to focus, and things are just now clicking. Or maybe he was lazy a bit, and finally grew up or matured enough to commit to his craft.    He's an interesting guy to follow. I could see it falling either way. I remember his recruiting out of HS (think he was out of Mainland) Thought for sure he'd end up at FSU, UF, or Auburn. My FSU and Auburn buds thought he was a lock lol. One of my FSU buds swore USC bought him a car lol. I was hoping ND would offer, but rumor was, he didn't have close to the grades needed.    
    • Hmmm I watched the show on  prime (all episodes) And Although I haven't seen many of the games from last year I found him to be pretty damn good and a very nice guy. I mean I wasn't a huge fan before but I think we got a winner at Qb and im looking forward to watching all year. Watch the show on prime  its worth the watch
    • Yup. If you read the above discussion, I've shared the parameters we used in a past mock, that made things go much faster. I think the the key is to stick to evenings, keep a crisp/clean big board, shorten the clock, and more or less do a "schedule" for picks so everyone knows +/- 15 minutes when they have be available. The all day all week long clock stuff is just not conducive to keeping folks attention.
