Jonathan Taylor logs 3 Runs in NGS Top 25!


Recommended Posts

Going off of my eye test alone, that Hill catch & run vs the Bills in the playoffs should be top 5 at least.  I haven’t seen a person destroy so many angles of pursuit so quickly.

Just hope we don't run the wheels off him.

 

One of my bigger fears is we over use him, then sign him to big and long term extension, then all the mileage catches up. 

 

If we're up by 14 the 4Q, we better see some other RBs get carries lol.. And just better run/pass balance in general all game.

I really think the Colts should franchise tag him for 2 years in a row then let him walk.  Of course, his agent will never let that happen. It’s unfortunate we have one of the best backs in the last 10 years and won’t be able to completely take advantage of him. JT alone will make us competitive but without an elite QB we only have a punchers chance. Sadly with the history of wear and tear on RBs, JT will most likely be a shell of himself in 5 years. The wheels will fall off that kid sooner than most want to admit. I’ve never wished I was more wrong bc he is an amazing player but the NFL is not kind to RBs.

History provides us a cautious tale lol... that's for sure. 

 

I don't want to tag him 2x and let him walk. I simply want to use him smartly.

 

No more of the silly Houston type of game plan. Pounding JT, hardly using Hilton, and when we did pass, it was all super short stuff into a D cheating up to stop JT...  yuck... Didn't pull him till very late when we were up 24-0... 

 

Overall, just need better balance and smart personnel use/management, Better run/pass balance, and better balance within the passing game.

It’s more likely JT stays relatively healthy and plays at a high level until he is 30 before Reich stops having ridiculous game plans. Reich is the definition of cutsie

    • Ya we need one. It's on ESPN and it's a 1pt PPR, but there's also defensive points for passes defended. So there's a little more points from Defenses. 
    • Says the right things I guess.   Same guy though that in two games, which we won by  a combined score of 72-15 (and never in doubt), ran JT into the ground 64 times...    Good intentions though.    I do think his production/attempts decrease though.     
    • 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.
