Watch Reggie's feet on that 3rd down slant.  I did about 100 times.... BEAUTIFUL.


Great GIF, thanks for the article.

You mentioned Luck's cadence.  I noticed on that last TD to Hilton - Luck's cadence pulled the whole KC line off balance, and they were still recovering when the ball was actually snapped.

I think it bought him a little extra time for the deep ball.

What's interesting, in all seriousness, is that I think that the Colts are being EXTREMELY media savvy (in general this year).  You think all of Irsay's comments before the Denver game were him just shooting his mouth off?  I think he's smarter than that, I think it was all about getting into Peyton's head to give his team the best chance of winning.  I didn't realize it until just before the game when I saw that roof and window wide open.

Oh yeah... and running the 3/1/1 all the time means they got really good at it.  There's more than one reason Peyton did really well on play action.

I think having the separate run/pass formations and not using TY Hilton feed each other.

The 3 WR 1 TE 1 RB formation that Peyton's Colts used worked well for three reasons -
1. They could run or pass effectively out of that formation (as said in the article)
2. Not having to swap personnel enabled the hurry-up
3. It put the best personnel on the field.  (Harrison, Wayne, Garcon/Stokely, Clark, Addai/Edge)

Nothing magic about 3/1/1 though... These Colts should be putting their best personnel on the field for every offensive snap in a 2/2/1.
Wayne, Hilton, Fleener, Allen, and ummmm... Ballard (Bradshaw's gonna have to show more to earn it).

Yeah, I think you captured it about right.  Around dinnertime I was telling people that I wanted to go home, open a couple beers, watch Peyton take apart the Ravens, and cry a little bit.

I think for this article to be meaningful, you'd have to look at some receivers who performed on par or better than par in order to see what their distribution of missed TD reasons are - they are sometimes gonna be interfered with and sometimes have their QB make bad throws too.

 @cwjwl Thanks!  So that range will give us a rough idea of when they MIGHT be done, when they MUST be done (barring other moves), and how many "A" level signings they can reasonably be expected to make (2-3).

So if the Colts have $43M to spend, and they have to leave enough to cover drafted rookies & a few UFAs,About how much money do they have available to spend? (high 30s?) 

Given the 90% floor, how much money do they HAVE to spend?

 @southdodger Teams ran at Freeney and Mathis because of the scheme, not because they couldn't tackle.  To be more precise, teams would run at where Mathis WAS, not at Mathis.

My favorite quote of the article:

"But my thinking has changed. Having both is probably the worst of all the options, as Kravitz of the Star and Nate Dunlevy of 18to88.com have both written. "

No matter how much you hate being written about in the same sentence as Kravitz, he hates it more.

It would be interesting to see what pct of the cap other 'franchise' QBs have sucked up, particularly on champion/playoff teams.

Maybe Peyton could give you a ring and let you know if he was offended or not.
