LOVE these radio casts! Only thing I wish is that they were 5 hours long, ha. I live in Korea, and can't hear local Colts radio. Thanks.
pagano needed a 3-4 guy. nuff said. you've got to give him a chance to get the players he needs to run his d
This is why guessing who was going to 'start" were just blowing hot air. 2/3 of our platoon have injury history. Now 3/3...
And how many times have I told you this was the case when Brown runs? I hate to keep beating a dead horse here, but... I told you so
By the way, on the last play I think we should give wheeler quite a bit of credit. Watching it again, he gave Brown quite a swim move. It was just a great play by Wheeler
How many times did they stack the receivers? that another thing you guys should look at. I saw a lot of press man coverage from the dolphins. A stack release could create natural picks to beat the press
I think they're telling him not to run. No ones's open and he looks lost, takes a sack, etc I don't necessarliy think he should run more, but I think if he has room he should take off
Maybe Kaepernick will just suck and then we all come to find out later that all of his talent was in his eyebrows that he shaved off...
Yes indeed greg. Brad Wells has fired him, said fleener was a bust half way through last year, etc, etc
I actually don't think it was horrible. He threw it to wayne when he was 1-1. I favor that match up. Just felt it was a little underthrown and again, Reggie was interfered with
this the quote you looking for greg?
"It's not that Andrew Luck is clutch, it's that it takes a close and late situation for Indy to run an offense fitting their strengths."
Getting that one yard has been a problem waaaaaaaaaaaay back when. Since 2007 or so when the line started to fall apart
I thought the Colts should have called more screen passes yesterday. Dolphins were blitzing quite a bit
I'd say the league should institute fines for bad reffing and donate the proceeds (say 1k for blown call and 5k for an egregiously awful call) to feeding hungry orphans. Then when the Colts (or any other team) gets robbed by the refs we can at least all feel happy that somewhere a hungry child is well fed. ....or coaches should be able to challenge penalty calls. If you can challenge a spot, a turn over, or an incomplete pass, surly you should be able to challenge a call like the absurd procedure call on Wayne.
@RobertItoh not me. i've ALWAYS been pro-Brown
@RobertItoh What was the case?
@RobertItoh is the "trips" formation with three wide outs to one side considered a stacked formation?
@hankster I think admitting bad calls occur would be a good place to start. Right now, they just act like 99.9999999999999999% of the calls are correct. And they conveniently forget to included no calls in their numbers.
@Kyle Rodriguez @RobertItoh When Brown was receiving massive criticism for being a bad running back in 2010 and 2011 and hell even last year, most times, there was no hole to run through. the majority of people however, just kept playing to the toon of "he isn't decisive, he dances to much, he can't see the hole"
@GregC @hanksterGreg, it´s not specifically about that Wayne penalty (although I answered something about it in Marcus´ post, if you´re interested), but have you read Tanier´s column ( http://www.sportsonearth.com/article/60748634 )? In it, in his closing section, he makes what I find very compelling points about the state of officiating today, and I tend to agree with him. I think officiating is changing within the NFL, and that they are modifying the way they present things to the public and to teams. I´d like to think it´s because of what happened with the replacement refs, and if that is the case, all the hand-wringing will have ended up having positive effects.
@Kyle Rodriguez that should be tune not toon. Ask greg, I even did a video breakdown depicting his runs
@Goéland @GregC @hankster I just read Tanier's blurb now and will go back to yours at around 4pm, but I have to say, quickly: while I love Tanier and often say I want to be Mike Tanier when I grow up, I totally disagree with him on officiating.
Judgment calls, referee discretion and a rulebook full of gray is exactly what causes otherwise rational, sane fans to cry conspiracy or something similar.
For example: how was Greg Toler's "holding" of Mike Wallace worthy of a flag, when it had no negative effect on the play, but Nolan Carroll's piggyback ride not flag-worthy?
By the letter of the law, both should be flagged. Through sound logic and reason, only the Carroll one should have been flagged. Instead, we got a flag on the least-egregious penalty of the day.
I don't trust officials to use good judgment in split-second situations. More importantly, I don't want to HAVE to trust them. Give me a rulebook of how ever many rules you want enforced 100% of the time, and then send them out to enforce it. I don't care if you remove half of the rules. Whatever. I just don't want to see another uneven, confusingly officiated game again.
