Is it time to make some changes? (merge)

Well, let's start with the HC, his play calling is untimely pathetic.  Needs to give this up.  

DC needs to be evaluated, no pressure in key situations.

Injury bug keeps biting key players. I understand injury is part of the game, but players need to step up.

Utilizing your bell cow(JT), needs to get better.

Thunderbolt...definately yes!!  This cannot go on anymore.  Can any of them give 100% on the field?  Where do we start...the coach, the O-Line, etc... What's the first thing that needs to happen??  A QB that can be mobile??  This is getting old.

Where are all the Ballard is a genius people at? This is a freakin joke...

Lo. U know I ain't one of them. Thought he was over rated. Now we see wha kind of roster he has developed. I really don't c any explosive play makers on this roster.

Offense play calling needs to be turned over to Brady. DC and dline coach need fired.

Frank would make a very good quarterbacks coach. Eberflus is beyond his depth as a coach. There is no emotion on either side of the ball, coupled with all sorts of questionable play calls and having no coaching on execution, this is what you get - talented players playing like zombies.

This team is voided of game changing talent. We have zero game changers on offense ZERO!! We’ve got a couple good players but nobody that keeps the opposing teams up at night. Now to the defense. We have two really good players. But are missing the key ingredient on D. There’s absolutely not an edge rusher on this team. What makes it so frustrating is all the SWINGS ballard has taken at this position and whiffed. Now we’re staring down at a top 10 pick that won’t belong to us. Finally in reach of maybe a true game changer but we’ve squandered that away now. Ballard and frank need to be held accountable. The play and preparation of this team has been lacking. That comes from the top.

I always said once THESE Colts start playing a tougher schedule that their Ballard based TALENT would be exposed. Frank actually called a better game today but having an very limited Wentz out there was a bad decision. This team NEEDS a lot moving forward.

Completely agree… but we continue to sit on our hands each off-season and completely depend on the draft, which is finally showing ballard has missed way more SWINGS than he’s hit. The trading down for more SWINGS and not just grabbing the best talent available is showing up majorly.

It's week 3, Colts lost to 3 very good teams, all playoff teams last year. Not to forget there is a new QB who is not 100% healthy and ran maybe 1 week of practice during the off season. 

 

There i going to be growing pains. Maybe come back to this around mid season.

So, we're going to potentially lose our top ten pick by being loyal to an injury prone QB . b/c he was above avg QB for a half season with our mediocre HC 2017.  I hate to predict but if we go 0-4, b/c JB(Dolphins) has something to prove for not retaining him, now what for team? Can we say, "Panic Time"!?

The Colts would  sit Wentz before giving up the 1st rounder, which is looking like they maybe in  contention for the #1 overall pick lol.

-Frank needs to hand over the play calling duties!!

-Fire the O-line coach. 

-Sign Richard Sherman

-Sign 1 or 2 O-linemen (Okung, Schwartz, Wagner, Decastro, etc.)

-Hire a legit pass rush specialist or DE coach.

-RUN THE DANG BALL!!

 

i agree with this

cambell is dorsett 2.0 he is not a starter . WRs should of been handled way better considering its a passing league

I just threw up in my mouth remembering Dorsett. No offense to the guy, but he was the biggest disappointment I’ve ever seen in the post-Manning era. Worse than Bjorn even IMO

Dorsett drafted by Grigs

Campbell drafted by Ballard

 

Werner drafted by Grigs

Turay, Banagu, Lewis drafted by Ballard

 

I still think Ballard is better than Grigs but it aint looking pretty for colts at the moment

I don’t either.  This Colts offense looks like those Ballard Chiefs teams pre-Mahomes.  Decent running backs but no wide receiving threats of note and question marks at QB position. That team never made any real noise in the post season either.

I see three explosive playmakers on this offense: JT, Hines, and Pittman. The problem is that none are used effectively

They got paid so not a whole lot of incentive to play hard. Kudos to Wentz playing hurt not so sure about some of these other guys.

I think Irsay needs to start asking Ballard and Reich some hard questions (which he might already be we don’t know) and that should result in changes.  I doubt it will be anything we will notice in a major way but hopefully it yields better results.

I describe Ballard's philosophy as "3 yards and cloud of dust" from the 60's.....JMV describes it as in the 70's.

I see two and one who has some potential.  Campbell has potential too but he’s always hurt so that pretty much off-sets his potential.  Pittman needs to take another step to go beyond potential.  Right now the only two weapons feared by other teams is Hines in space and Taylor running.  One they keep trying to make a between the tackles runner which takes him out of space and the other was criminally underutilized today.

We have more than two good defenders. I think Moore, Blackmon, Buckner, Leonard, and Grove are all pretty decent. 

Darius is not a worth 100 million. He is barely a top 10 linebacker.
