You can't fix a problem if you don't what it is.

You can't fix it if you don't know what is the real problem. Frank has been telling us that at each media conference. Ballard is definitely clueless because he undid what was working. Last year we had the best running game with JT with Glowinski and Chris Reed. We need a LT. Ballard undoes Glowinski and Reed and today we have no RG and LT. 

We all know that Matt Ryan is having problems taking snaps and fumbling. The guy is a 37year old vet. Has anybody ever considered that the problem is Matt Ryan. The problem could be physical (his hand strength - muscle). Like I said you can't solve the problem if you don't what is the problem. We are hoping it does not take 17 weeks.

Just because we don’t talk specifics publicly, doesn’t mean we don’t know what the problem is.    There’s a reason why these things are kept behind closed doors where they belong.  

 

Fans want a public explanation right now.   That’s not how this works.  You keep things internal.   You don’t throw anyone under the bus.   You work to get better. 
 

I don’t know why you’d think we don’t know what the problem is?

Is that what you want for your Colts team??

What I want doesn’t matter.  Now if you ask is that what Irsay wants I’d say that does matter and Irsay has proven over and over he’s not one of those types of owners.  I am not going to suggest he will turn into one either.  I am just saying the idea that fans can force their owners into action by not going is a fantasy fans like to tell themselves to make themselves think they have some control when they don’t.  Lucky for Colts fans they have an owner that does care about winning above all else so they don’t have to worry about him just sitting there collecting his profits like some other sports franchises owners do.

I think at least part of the problem is Jacksonville.. If we could somehow move them out of the division then we wouldn't have to lose to them in Jacksonville every year.

Problem solved! :funny:

Check once if the hurricane lifted that city to Bermuda side. 

..... 

Well, its not.. Colts are still Doomed.

The problem is mostly Frank Reich.   He doesn't get his team up for games.  

He doesn't scheme to us the talent on the team how it should be used.

His play-calling is not good.   He needs to give it up so he can concentrate on what the team needs from him.   He's proven time and time again that he cannot handle doing the play-calling and paying attention to what he needs to pay attention to.

The problem is and always has been Frank Reich. Completely revamp this offensive coaching staff including OL coach and you would see a big difference. Ballard also has to stop being too frugal and stubborn when it comes to free agency.

Lol I’m all for solutions, but I don’t think the answer is that Matt Ryan has lost hand strength. A couple of fumbles have been misplayed between him and the center and a couple he has just been straight blasted. It happens. Not excusing it, but it happens to every player when they get rocked like that.

What makes you believe you know??? You are a fan and fans unlike players pay to watch, guzzle liquor and form silly opinions versus working on the games 365days a year.

 Frank seems to have 7-8 primary plays. His up the gut run blocking is failing badly, his blocking to the outside quick passes is miserable, Ryan is bumblin', fumblin', mumblin' us out of games.
Reminds me of how the Browns played for a couple decades. We gonna find a way to lose!

Im also a retired member of the media.   Covered the Rams and Raiders here in Los Angeles.    
 

But even if I wasn’t, I have logic and common sense.   Well run franchises do not talk about their problems publicly and throw their own players or coaches under the bus.    When was the last time you heard a coach trash his own player or position coach in season while they try to fix a problem?   Doesn’t happen.   If the team needs to, they cut the player or fire the coach and say something standard like “we needed to go in a new direction”.   
 

Heck, Irsay trashed Wentz after the season and has been criticized both by media and fans for doing it.   You keep things behind closed doors where they belong.    Which is what I wrote. 
 

You and others are free to trash the team and drink all the liquor you want.   Just as I’m free to observe that it looks silly for a fan to think they know what the problem is, but the team doesn’t.    Cheers!

From a roster construction standpoint, there are certainly issues that are fairly clear.

 

But I think it all comes down to one position...QB. This team has had a QB issues for most of the time since Luck retired. And with that, they haven't been able to create a real identity on offense. Have to get that settled first.

    • I was skeptical, too, but agree with you. Yesterday, for instance, Fields was 20-of-25 passing for 254 yards. He needs to keep developing but has a chance to be really good.
    • But Ballard has to negotiate the deal and decide if the compensation is within the parameters the owner laid out.  The HC is NOT going to convince the owner about draft picks or contracts being worth it.  He simply says that he can win now with Wentz but can't with Fields.    The draft process showed that Ballard chose Pierce over Woods, but was willing to take Woods at 53 if Pierce wasn't there.  Nowhere does it suggest that frank wanted either Pierce or Woods over anybody else, or that he wanted one over the other first in order to secure him.   And which player goes in which slot is totally dependent on how the draft is playing out.  That's not what the HC does.  Ballard knows what kind of pieces the HC wants, then goes and gets him those pieces.    Yeah, they have to have collaboration on how important different pieces are and make a list of the players that fit, but which specific piece is selected where is totally on Ballard and the scouts, so which specific piece is brought into training camp and handed to the HC to coach is on the GM.
    • No team is ever as far away from contention as it might seem. Every team has flaws. Things change quickly.   A recent example of how things can change for a team quickly are the Bengals. I don't want to discount other guys on their team but they turned it around primarily with 2 draft picks: Joe Burrow and Ja'marr Chase.   Yes some good fortune is needed sometimes but 2 home run moves and the outlook of this Colts team is totally different. It's really about who your top 4-5 players are and whether you have any at premium positions and not so much about the rest. Instead of the 80/20 rule it's more like the 90/10 rule in the NFL where 10% of your players determine 90% of your results.    
    • Really, I don't think either would be a great choice.  I would take Baker before Brisset though.   Just because I think his ceiling could be higher.  He's been on 2 bad teams so his ceiling is a bit more than Brissetts because we know what Brissett is more certainly than we do Baker.   Neither would be a good choice IMO though.
