Aikman did everything he could not to say that Matt Ryan isn’t a starting QB. He talked around it and pointed out things that are on MR to do. I appreciated his insight and believe they should sit MR for the remainder of the season. 

 

Yep, when he saw Campbell streaking against man coverage at the back of the end zone, and several other times I did notice that. Aikman knows a thing or two about QB play, I would figure. :)

Ok here are my post game bullet points:

 

1. Defense was wretched. If we faced anybody other then who we did, we give up 40+.
2. Offense is pre historic. The field is so condensed when we’re on offense.

3. Our 2nd round pick last year was a waste of a pick.

4. Nice game from Jeloni Woods. His hands are shaky though.

5. What’s the dead cap hit for releasing Allie-Coz the day the season ends.

6. It’s almost disrespectful to say what I think about Matt Ryan. I just hope he doesn’t get seriously injured and decides to retire at seasons end. 
7. Alec Pierce has a LONG way to go before he becomes a contributing NFL wr.

8. Colts have the worst home field advantage in sports. But I don’t blame the fans. Have they won a game there yet this season?

9. Steelers proved again why they’re our daddy’s.

This is one of the better defenses we've had around here, especially considering the crap offense they have been paired with.

It’s really not. Believe what you want, but for years including this one, Gus’s defense cannot be counted on to make a stop when it’s critical. Colts Defense really isn’t that good.

Squeelers just looked at the Colts/Eagles game and did exactly what they wanted! Kenny Moore was usual trash, and Okereke thought the game was 2-hand touch! Refs were one-sided but not blaming them for the loss, and I think Parks is in way over his head!

Yet does anyone not even remember the facemask penalty that was not called against the Eagles on the last drive? That would have given us a HUGE chance to win that game.....

What draft pick will we get at 5-11-1?

top 5 colts are now 14th in the draft . bears have the  second pick right now at 3 wins .  we can easily get the 4th pick but need the panthers to win one more game .     losing out colts could easily get the number 2 pick and get stroud because even if the broncos or bears  get the 2nd the pick goes to the eagles who have a QB and would want to trade back and the bears have a QB

You can change coaches all you want but it doesn’t change the talent.

Broncos don’t have a first round pick I don’t believe.

Nah, our D just stunk tonight. I see him as a backup, little arm strength and not fast either. He won tonight so a lot in here will say he is great. Pitt is freakin 4-7 and Pickett is not that good. Sam lovers are out in full force too, Sam is without a doubt a lifetime backup. Maybe we will get lucky and draft a QB that is duel and is good.

 

Pitt is improving... They have their best DL back. They are replacing their worst DB with Wallace, who has started playing well (3 INTs in the last 4 weeks). And Pickett is improving. Not saying Pickett will be pro-bowler QB... but has much better ceiling than Sam.

We should take a LT and play Sam next year, If we do that we will go 20-0.

For 50 years the Colt defense hasn't stopped anyone they had to. We go ahead and don't score again, give up the go ahead score to the steelers on their next possession. It's the same thing over and over. Gm's change, coaches change players change but the results have  remained the same for FIFTY years! The Irsays have beat the Rooney's FOUR times in fifty years, I don't think Alabama has dominated Vanderbilt that bad in the last 50 years.

Matt Ryan can make the throws if given time but if not able to step up into his throw he cannot drive the ball with just arm strength 

Tbh what NFL can’t make throws when give time. Matt is washed up and his arm is dead. We need to focus on next year at this point let the young guys play that we have to get some experience

you have some weird hate for sam he is a young player who should get the chance to play the rest of the year .  playoffs are done anyway .  the only reason i wanted sam was the hope he could improve and show some things . i am so sick of these washed up band aid QBs that i just want some kind of hope to cling to .    you have to admit with matt ryan its over he is not coming back he is below .500 as a starter this year he is only getting older and will keep declining . at least with a young player there is a chance to improve that is all i wanted the chance .   i realized the team had no chance earlier than you so i wanted the hope of something to make the season exciting

1. Defense was wretched. 

 

As horrible as the offense was, the D made enough plays to keep them in it.  They held them to 3s when the Steelers had constant good field position in the first half.   They got several 3 and outs to start the second half to allow them to get back in it.  Got a 3 and out after the fumble on the goaline.  Following a Colts 3 and out late in the 4th, they got the Steelers off the field to allow a final drive.

 

Considering the offense only played about 10 minutes of decent football, the D did enough.

We started the 4Q with the lead... the last 3 weeks.

Our D has allowed way too much in the 4Q in the last 2 weeks. 

 

Yes, the O has to get better. But 4Q D has sucked.. 

we have no Dline Depth, that's why we are losing in the 4Q

The Colt defense was on the field for 6 plays prior to us taking the lead and then let the steelers go 75 yards for the go ahead touchdown, they most definitely should NOT of been gassed. It was just typical Colt football historically speaking over the past 50 years.

    • A large part of vocal Vikings fans in the popular forum are homers, and if we get another Christian Ponder, they'd spend two or more years hyping him up as better than Kirk Cousins.. in fact, they spent more than half a decade saying Kirk will take next step and be a force in playoffs or important games. Funnily, he started playing more freely only in last two years as he has achieved enough financial freedom and he ended up injured, which is why Kirk has been very careful to not get injured for most of his career at the expense of making plays outside the structure. Kirk is pretty smart taking care of his career and earnings and subsequent contracts heavily favored on his terms, and fans didn't realize, some even now.    The reason I'm saying all that is respectability is very subjective. I don't know what's worse for the respectability than not even sniffing play-off success for decades save for a year or two here and there and having won no SBs in 6 decades but just being a Middling team year after year, not picking even close to either top 5 or bottom 5 in the draft.    It's better to lose QB and WR, if it helps find a franchise QB for Vikings. Like Bears, Vikings franchise QB history is only good for homers. There's nothing worse than being perennial average team, and trying to find FUN in the season. Vikings don't have an RB and run game too, after discarding Dalvin Cook needlessly.   I'd say respectability be damned, be absolute worst if you've to, and only focus Vikings should have is finding their franchise QB. If this GM is not looking seriously at that, I'm not sure what their plan will be. This GM has looked like running headless chicken so far, but he's got good HC and DC for now. Let's see what they do, but they don't need to sell the farm to find franchise QB, they just need to have sole focus in finding one in next few years and grab the opportunity with both hands when it is presented or do make necessary moves to get that opportunity present itself.    Having said that, we talk about trading JJ only because he's made some statements and has been visibly upset or get lonely during losses or when the team is gonna miss playoffs. If Diggs does the same, they'd call him absolute Diva but JJ has made more scathing remarks publicly so we're thinking it may not be good idea to have an elite WR get disgruntled every year and Rather help him get to a contender (Like Texans as you said) and utilize the return in finding a franchise QB. 
    • I do want to follow this up with, If I see someone that really wow's me, I would consider taking them over Bowers. You have to be open minded in this thing and study different area's. I just see Bowers as a can't miss. If Bowers and Odunze both are there at #15, I would be 50/50 on who to take. I doubt both will be there though.
    • I just seen this and normally I would agree with you about the Pacers, but I think they will be a very tough out in these playoffs. This team looks different than the one's that have recently had a decent record, but we knew would be 1 and done. They are #1 in offense is why. They can outscore almost every team in the league most nights. They would have a better record, but Haliburton missed 2 weeks earlier in the season. Boston is the only team in the East that looks dominant, but they tend to choke every year, so I am not even sold on them. I think the Pacers at worse end up with a #6, stay out of that playin and will win a series if not 2 this year.    Regarding Clark, she is the best College Basketball player I have ever seen with the exception of Cheryl Miller, Reggie's sister. That says a lot because players Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore, Brittney Griner, and Candice Parker who were no slouch in college.
    • Bowers of course but all WR's and Edge Rushers. I want to see the over all speed of some of the Edge Rushers, and WR's. Can't teach speed. That is why Polian couldn't pass on Dwight Freeney because he was fast and quick, even though undersized he was our 1st Round pick back in 2002. Polian got mocked for the pick at the time, but he said that was a no-brain pick after watching Dwight at the combine. Once Freeney ran that 4.48 40 it was history!
