All heat directed towards Reich for this loss is well deserved. He cost us the game.     

I put this loss mostly on Reich.  Lots of players to blame as well, but mostly Reich.    

People are blaming Frank because so far hasn't shown the ability to learn from his mistakes as the season goes on. Frank has a hard time getting too greedy instead of taking the points. When that coul

A missed FG cost us the game. We put up 24 on a damn good defense and kept the most explosive offense to below 30. 
 

Hindsight is 20/20. If we had made both 2pt Convs and conveyed the 4th downs then Reich is amazing. If we don’t then he’s stupid

 

We lost a heartbreaker to the better team on the day.

It was a tough, hard fought game. The Colts came in ready for a fist fight, and fight they did!

 

We were gifted an opportunity at the end by the refs and we didn't capitalize on it. On to next season.

Bad play calling. Bad decisions in the RZ. Bad use of time outs which kept us from running any real offense in that last drive.... 

I agree. With all the great HC candidates still, I would fire him and hire someone else. We should of won this game relatively easily.

He made a couple of head-scratching decisions. I don't understand the stacked formation the last 3 plays before the hail mary too. It looked gimmicky and out of place. Run a traditional formation and let the best man win.

Nah % happens in games.. frank is the lone reason why we lost.. yeah here and there there is other stuff that could have went our way but frank decides to go for it on 4th and 4.. and call a challenge that was clearly down those two right there were terrible

The lost challenge costing us a timeout was really dumb

  • SteelCityColt changed the title to Reich Coaching Decisions vs Bills Reactions (MEGAMERGE)

Warning: Will be ranting so if you’re a homer close your eyes.

 

First of all Frank Reich are you serious? Hated the 2pt try, hated that weak * toss play to Taylor on the goal line and don’t get me started on that challenge call.

 

Corners are so bad - correction.. TJ Carrie was pathetic, Cole Beasley out there with 1 leg doing whatever he wanted! Diggs doing whatever he wanted!

 

Anthony Walker - Yuck

 

Respect the Specs? Yeah miss me with that one! Pathetic!

 

Shouldnt have even been in the game ZP got blessed by the refs at the end.

Reich and Rivers both need to go.

 

Reich would be a fine OC but as a coach he makes terrible decisions.  Those lost 3 points be paramount.

 

Rivers can't move and throws with no spin and no velocity.  He couldn't even make that end of game Hail Mary to the endzone.

 

In contrast Allen completed numerous passes that Rivers never could have, including many while running to the sidelines.

Missed field goals. 
Turay off sides gifting them. 
Too many drops. 
Ref bad call, clearly toes out of bounds. 
Reich too aggressive on 4th down. 

this is why i was worried about practicing one time this week .  the players missed passes all game were rusty . i am a fan of resting the veterans but the young players needed practice .

yeah focus this offseason should be CB #1, left tackle #2, anthony walker replacement #3, possibly a QB replacement IF the right opportunity arises. It's obvious that this NFL requires a mobile QB. The way too ideal offseason looks like this: Get Gilmore for a mid rd pick, sign an edge rusher in FA, and then finally... give up our first, a second, and a future 1st/ whatever it takes to move up in the draft and grab justin fields

Frank needs to go. 0/3 on crucial coaching moments. The players did their jobs so well and he thought he was smarter than the game of football. When you have the chance to take points against the 2nd most potent and explosive offense in the NFL, you take points. You don’t make stupid, stupid, unadvised challenges. And, you let brissett sling it 60 yards instead of rivers, who probably suffered a hernia during that throw. Not coaching to win. Coaching with an ego.

With your attitude, you as a Colts fan deserved to lose this game and not make the playoffs for the forseeable future if you like Reich. Anyone who still wants to keep Reich after this game I include in this. Not personal, just the truth.

Go for a walk man

So much stuff that was in our control went against us.

 

- Play calling at the end of the first half

- Missed field goal

- Pointless challenge taking a time out away

- Turay's offside

- Opportunity to pick up the fumble

- Rivers throwing those couple of passes away at the end.

 

A couple of those go our way and it's probably a different result. Generally played well but those details NEED to be tightened up and there's going to be a lot of scrutiny on Reich.

 

We got a hell of a break with Pascal's relatively obvious fumble and still couldn't make the most of it.

Everybody needs to calm down. 

 

There were several things that cost us the game. Sure, play calling was the biggest factor. But the flag on turay, the drops by our rb's were killers, too. 

 

But anyways... FR needs to overthink his play calling. 

 

And PR should retire.... His throwing motion looks horrible. As an NFL QB you should be able to throw the ball at least 50 yards...

    • @Superman   @w87r   So, among many things, I get e-mail from Sports Illustrated every day.   And the other day,  there was this article written by Andew Brandt, who used to handle the contracts and salary cap issues for the Packers for 10 years.    And one thing he wrote jumped off the page at me.     Now, here's why I remind our two resident Salary Cap experts I noted above about something they have both talked about,  but I haven't seen either of them talk about this year.   Roll Over.   According to Brandt,  the Colts have the MOST SALARY CAP ROLLOVER in the NFL.   $30 MIl.    So, whatever the general 2021 team salary cap turns out to be,  you can add $30 Mill for the Colts.     I'm going to do two things.     I'm going to link the entire article for everyone.    It's free, non-premium,   and I'm also going to cut and paste the key section for everyone to read right here.      OK....    here's the article...      And just for discussion purposes,  Brandt uses a projected salary cap of $185.   He's NOT saying that's what the final number will be,  only his own hypothetical number for his article.   https://www.si.com/nfl/2021/03/02/business-of-football-understanding-the-salary-cap-dead-money?suid=5cc1cc3a3f92a475c0234f43&utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=SI Extra 030221&utm_term=SI Extra - USE THIS - List     Here is the key text:   Myth: Every NFL team’s cap number is going to be $185 million   No. Actually, no team’s cap number is going to be $185 million (or whatever the final cap number is). The 2011 CBA, for the first time, allowed teams to carry over unused cap room from one year to the next. In managing the cap for the Packers, we did not have that option; it was use it or lose it. I had to negotiate * incentives—such as a clause giving our third-string quarterback $20 million if he threw seven touchdowns in our last game—to carry over cap room. (When he didn’t earn the incentive, we would get it as a credit toward the next year.) Now teams don’t have to play those games. As per NFLPA numbers, every team in the league has carried over 2020 cap room, from a low of roughly $500,000 for the Ravens to a high of more than $30 million for the Colts. Teams carrying over $20-plus million of cap include the Jets, Browns, Eagles, Cowboys and Jaguars. Thus, although the team cap is $185 million, the Colts’ adjusted cap will be around $215 million, and so on. And again, these teams have been preparing, or should have been preparing, for this reduced cap for months.   What say you both, Superman and w87r?     What do you think of what Brandt has written?    Does everyone have to re-do their off-season mocks reflecting a team figure of $215?     I look forward to hearing from both of you and others!
    • Jets take Zach Wilson  dolphins up
    • I have to agree. His draft order is not always spot on but his ability to evaluate talent is always in the ballpark as to what GMs agree on.  As it turned out Tobin's rant ended up being pretty lame after Trev Alberts ended up being one of the Colts all time bust. Not only was Alberts a bust, so was Tobin. 
    • I don’t know why after so many years there are so many people who still believe Kiper  doesn’t know what he’s talking about? The exact opposite is true.   Always has been.   He’s lasted more than 35 years and for very good reason.    But I’ve been reading this here since I showed up nearly nine years ago.  Some falsehoods die slowly around here.
