Phil can't put up 2 Td's... and that's why Ballard is gonna have to ask some tough questions.. I like Phil okay... better than JB and that was the metric going into this.. but there's a ceiling and I think it just got hit. 

Yeah, we just need a QB that can make up for 4 drops, a missed FG, stupid playcalling, and a soft pass defense.


Should be easy to find that in the off-season.

This game has shown we are close. We just don’t have enough game breaking weapons that can win their matchups. We competed really well and the game plan was working. The scripted plays big down because of the lack of speed on offense.  This is where we really miss Campbell. Way to many drops also.

We have plenty of weapons. We need better use of the weapons. Hitting the bigs has worked all day. 


We finally just rushed the edge with Taylor, which we should have been doing from the start vs their little DBs.

    • Shhh, the more he is "overlooked" the better off Downs and the Colts will be.
    • Dude diving for that catch made a fan of me. 
    • He is superbly quick, nearly unguardable. A very high % as a extension of our run game. With the speed to wheel them over the top. The guy should perform as a 9/10 in our offense.    
    • I think PFF is useful for analyzing individual players. But if I want to analyze the team's pass rush performance, I don't want to know how many times the individual players pressured the QB; I want to know the number of plays we managed to pressure the opposing QB.    For example, the QB drops back 50 times in a game, and he's pressured 15 times, and sacked three times. Let's say each of those 15 plays where he's pressured, there are two defenders getting pressure. PFF would count that as 30 pressures for the defense, because they're acknowledging that two players got a pressure on one play. Same process if each sack was shared among two players; they'd count six sacks, even though the QB was only sacked on three plays.   And that's fine, because that's their focus. But I think that context needs to be acknowledged when we're talking about team performance. Because, as we know with our pass rush last year, we feasted against bad offenses, but there were too many situations where we failed to get pressure at all.    So I like to use PFR when talking about team performance, because their sack/pressure stats are on a per-play basis, rather than per-player. Both metrics can be used together, I just think PFR tells us 'the opposing QBs dropped back this many times, faced pressure on this many plays, and were sacked this many times.' And now we can clearly see how frequently the pass rush is affecting the QB. Or in the case of the 2023 Colts, how infrequently...
