Throw it 35 or more times, 0-5

You know, This isn’t a blame game on Reich.  I just find it odd and confusion how early in the season, Reich defense for going on fourth down so much was that he goes off of statistics.  But the statistic you showed above, never seems to be taken into account.  Just something I am starting to notice

Maybe someone needs to make him a card with those stats lol...

I might end up looking like a fool but I feel pretty good about the cardinals matchup for some reason.

 

I worry about 2 things when we play AZ...

1... Our D

2... AZ just watched TB run blitz us making us one dimensional, and will likely do the same.... Wouldn't be surprised if several teams didn't do the same.

Any team would be foolish not to. If it’s that easy to scare frank out of the running section of the playbook, and force Wentz to take the R out of the RPO there’s no reason not to replicate that formula because it’s been a factor in all 6 losses. Even though Wentz didn’t hit the apparently lethal 35 attempt threshold against the Rams he still had 31 which is close enough to just grandfather in as an aberration.

Game 1 vs Seattle I can excuse, just because it's game 1 lol... that's the only reason... 

Game 2, maybe excused because it's against LAR and still early, but frustrating.. 

Game 3 vs TN, with Wentz on two flat tires and 37 passes, and only 10 JT rushes..... nah... can't excuse that lol... 

 

All the talk from Frank and Ballard early this year about Wentz has to learn he doesn't have to win games by himself, is just so ironic right now. I'd say Wentz likely knows that, but someone sure doesn't.

We are 6-0 when Johnny rushes for over 100, 0-6 when he doesn't. That is the old Tony Dorsett stat. I remember back in the day at one point after Dorsett had been in the league for 5 years, Dallas was 45-2 when he went over 100 lmao . He went over 100 in 47 of his first 78 games in that span. 1977-1981. When Dorsett didn't go over 100, Dallas was 14-17.

It's ok if you look like a fool.  We can't see you anyway.

 

But Hey - I felt good about the Bucs game.  No reason not to feel good about the Cardinals game.  This team is actually pretty good.  If they score 31 we should have a chance.

Not too many teams have Suh and Vea in the middle. Also we did score 31 on them with 4 turnovers to boot. Plus we didn't go "one dimensional " until the second quarter. I say 4 instead of 5 as the 5th was the game's last play.

I think the Colts may use the same rush tactics they did vs Buffalo. They took a wide rush that made it difficult for Allen to escape the pocket. As long as you can generate some pressure from the middle , it might be the answer vs QB's that kill you with the run. It cuts down on sacks but I like it a lot. Make these running QB's beat you from the pocket.

We were one dimensional for most of the game after the 1Q... It was exactly what Bowles wanted us to do.

 

Having Suh and Vea is great, but they double stuffed the A gaps with 5 man run blitzes. That typically leaves only one C gap open. Any team can play one gap blitz ball without Suh and Vea. Normally Vea and Suh are covering 2 gaps each. In a run blitz, they're only responsible for 1.

Can someone email Frank and let him know please? 

Be better is someone made a card for him. Like his 4th down card.

A) usually when a team is ahead, they run the ball more to run down the clock, resulting in more carries. The number of carries is not always indicative of a winning strategy. (I agree that there should be a good balance though).  It's quite possible that a team can pass the ball primarily, create a large scoring gap, and then run the ball 18 times to ice the clock for a victory. In that case, the 18 runs would be a byproduct of the passing game that generated the points.

 

B) Teams that are behind usually try to pass more in order to preserve the clock and to score faster, thus resulting in more passing attempts. If they are not able to make up the deficit, it results in loss, giving the appearance that too much passing was the reason for the loss.

 

The scenarios mentioned above may not apply directly to our last game, but just looking at the numbers you provided without much context is just a statistic. It's a data point and can be useful. But it's a data point from a much larger pool of data that should all be taken into context.

We may get lead against them but we may blow it

Yea, I pointed that out yesterday, the FACT that the more we pass the more we lose. Come on Frank you are one of the best coaches in football, quit doing mindnumbingly stupid strategies and play to our strengths, not the opponents. Why have we've gotten double digits leads so often this season and then take the foot off the gas??? That's what Marchibroda did back in the seventies with pretty much the same results. I wonder why! There's an old saying," the more things change the more they stay the same". That is so true in Colt football history, unfortunately.

Yet we passed when up, and ran when down lol..

 

I'm all about balance. I don't care if we throw more than run. I do care if we abandon the run altogether.

 

The record when we pass, or don't run, is just eye opening. And if you look historically, most teams with huge imbalances are either losers a lot of the time, or they have a goat like Brady passing a ton.

    • Probably because QBs are paid $100m+ to learn that
    • Good job summarizing that. I'd like more clarity on some definitions... for example what is considered prime starter?    But yeah... I also want to point out that Ballard actually has a strategy that relies on increased number of picks to provide more value and more hits(purely number wise) rather than increased quality of picks. So even though the %s might be lower than Polian, Ballard is trading back relatively frequently and accumulating more shots at the dart board. This is a conscious decision and one that relies ot the total numbers rather than on %(in other words - 6 out 10 is better than 5/7... rough numbers but you get the point) . Worth noting that even with that strategy and with him trading 2 1st round picks he still gets to respectable(IMO) 60% hit rate in the first 50. That's why you won't ever hear me bash him for his draft trading strategy. I think this is actually a good strategy over the long run. I just wish he would value the skill positions and defenders of the skill positions more. 
    • So you're talking about a game I said we should run, and try deep against their lesser DB...   And we short passed to a punt in the first series... Then did what I wanted in the second series... and got a TD...   Sure,,,, that one...     Keep Reich gushing... 
    • Since you love hiding behind emojis.... @NewColtsFan please explain shelving our obvious best weapon (JT) in any game, at least use him in other facets....  please explain tossing all over the yard vs bad run Ds.... please explain giving no reps to your backup QB when QB1 was doubtful, yet calling an air raid game plan with QB2 vs a team that was bad vs the run...  please explain using a 5-10, really 5-9, guy, as a possession WR doing post ups in the flat and on the sideline.  please explain signing an APB to a top 10 RB salary, then cutting his reps to 2019 level instead of increasing them...    Let's hear it old wise gusher lol. 
    • “Even if you don’t have enough football acumen to recognize play calling route tendencies”   This, from the man who had a hissy fit meltdown over the first three plays of the New England game.  Multiple posts with your outrage over a literal Nothing Burger.   And it came when stories leading up to the game all reported that teams had been having success throwing against the Pats in the first quarter.  It was talked about right here.      Feank did just that for three plays, and one poster melted down.      Talk about a complete lack of football acumen?!   Lol!!
