We put 41 on Buffalo and against the Bucs Wentz played good. He played great at Baltimore where we put up 25. He threw for 400 yards in that one.

 

 A funny thing happens as the season goes on. Our opponents have tape.

Wentz pretty much stank the last 10 games of the season.

I would be surprised if that happened.  Some time has passed since the Jac embarrassment.  Time to get refocused and get a couple of playmakers to get the job done.

I just have a bad gut feeling. I hope I am wrong. Wentz deserves to come back and at least try again with better weapons. Ballard needs fired if he doesn’t bring in more offensive help.

It’s really unlikely. It would be shocking to me if they cut/traded Wentz.

 

People not only imo exaggerate what Ballard and Irsay are saying, but I also believe that even though they’re not sold on Wentz, they know there aren’t any better realistic options.

 

After next season though, all bets are off.

Wentz will probably be our QB next year but we won't go anywhere in the playoffs if we do make it. Tennessee is in the same boat with Tannehill. We need a franchise QB to win it all.

Patriots aren't winning jack with Jones either because Allen is much better than him and they are in the same division. We need Russell Wilson or Aaron Rodgers otherwise it will be another wasted year of Taylor's career.

You want Jimmy G. That isn’t getting us anywhere either.

 

To be fair we have to eee what happens in a second year with actual upgrades on offense before we can make any assumptions on Wentz.

Jimmy G is in his 2nd Final 4 and has been in a SB, Wentz has never won a playoff game so stop.

Well Jimmy G doesn’t crumble when facing adversity like Wentz does

Lol. Without that defense he would be behind by 20 every game. He does crumble. Look at his int. He had 3 or 4 passes last week he got lucky that weren’t INT.  He barely throws it pass the line of scrimmage. He threw a INT that almost cost them the game last week.

Did you watch Wentz vs the Raiders and at Jacks. Jimmy G wins almost 70% of his games. Wentz had the best RB in the league and a defense that created the most turnovers in the league and we had 2 chances to clinch. Not 1 but 2. No way Jimmy G would've lost those 2 games.

    • I'm not as optimistic as you are in some areas lol.  I'm in a wait and see mode in several. And a prove me wrong mode until I see something different in a few.    Doesn't really matter. If we're good, everyone (most anyway) will be happy and forget about a lot of the stuff. If we're not, the same conversations will be had.   Perhaps we need a "Colts Negative" thread to go along with the "Colts Positive" thread lol.... It would be a safe place for all the neg nancies to vent. I don't think the Colts Positive thread has kept the sunshine pumpers from pumping sunshine in normal threads though 
    • Loved what Cross did, and there was some other stuff to like. But it's hard to get too cheery knowing it was our 1st team D vs their 2nd team O.    And let's be honest. On the first drive, Keenum drove them right down to the 5... and they went for it on 4th and 4. If Allen is in, that's a TD 99% of the time. It was Keenum though. won't call him a super scrub, but he's not a starter. And Shakir and Moss pretty much had their way that drive. Our DBs had no answer for Shakir.   And just not a lot of pressure from the DL. No sacks or QB hits at all from our starters. Expected much better vs their 2nd team OL. 
    • I have even been posting with a chip on my shoulder lately, grouchy at times, etc.. As a fan I am all in, in serious mode once September rolls around. I am on record saying AFC Title Game or bust for us, time to man up, etc..    I just think we have the QB, roster, and yes even coach to get to the Championship Game and then from there lets see what happens. Matt Ryan doesn't have that ring so I have a feeling he is going to have a big year, not so much statistically but just making big plays at crucial moments. I don't see Taylor missing much of a beat either, and I think Pittman will even be better. Hines will be our ace in the hole, bailing us out on many 3rd and shorts with the pass. I like our defense but not sold on it, I am concerned about Maniac because we need him. He creates so many game changing Turnovers. Overall, I love our team though. Only huge question mark is LT IMO, but Nelson plays on the left side so that should help.
    • There's always going to be debate, that's for sure. And yes, all sunshine and puppy dogs would be boring, and you wouldn't have much traffic lol.    Overall, I think most give rooks, new players (to the team), and new coaches/scheme, the patience they deserve.    Patience though gets shorter when folks get tired of trends, certain vets, or certain coaches. I have high hopes for Ryan/Reich. But I begin this season with the same pessimism about play calling and scheme. And that will remain until I see something different. Hopefully the addition of Ryan offsets that... But folks in general have become more skeptical of Frank the last year. And I think that will continue unless the O looks different. 
    • It most definitely isn’t. If Shakir balls out over the next couple of years and Pierce doesn’t Ballard clearly overvalues characteristics that don’t equate to production.
