God this was a fantastic win. Hilton's second over Browner is the greatest TD pass by a Colt in a long, long time.

A 6-9 tackle? No thanks, edge rushers will eat him for lunch and have leftovers for dinner.

I feel better, but not as better as I EXPECTED to feel. So, worse.

At the beginning of the season I was OK with the "Run the ball, stop the run" focus. After all, you should focus on improving your biggest liability, right?After the season, it's the fact that they didn't actually DO it that worries me. I'm concerned about their ability to evaluate talent more than the area of focus. Picking up high-priced busts is what sinks a team, not playing "old-school" football.

I would rather spend some of the free agent money we have to eat Landry's contract and resign Bethea and somehow get Byrd on the field next to him.

I know Rodgers had a rough game, but that sliding catch he made was a nice grab! I felt he showed more than the statline indicated, given what a raw product he is. Josh Gordon-style breakout year in 2014, hopefully.

Oh my goodness. I understand FP is an open forum, but there really ought to be a minimum bar to clear to get published.
"Today, the record is clear. The countries that have followed his advice and increased their deficits (the South European crisis countries), have done far worse in terms of economic growth and employment than the North Europeans and particularly the Baltic countries that honored fiscal responsibility."
This is breathtakingly dishonest. The southern European countries were the ones forced into massive public spending cuts by Aslund's fellow neoliberal travelers. As Krugman (and Delong, and Blythe, and others) correctly predicted, this gutting of public expenditure blew a massive hole in the national economies which wound up INCREASING deficits and WORSENING the fiscal situation. Now that the IMF has issued its mea culpa, it's truly revolting to see the same rats who instigated this human disaster attempting to dump their guilt down the memory hole, all the while trying to pin the crime on the people who were screaming their heads off to try and stop it.
Luckily, while Mr. Aslund apparently has no memory, the Internet never forgets.

What makes the game so great is how fiercely it resists "Moneyball" approaches. It's 40 percent luck, 40 percent plan, 20 percent skill, or some other combination thereof.

I didn't think it was possible for me to hate the Richardson trade any more, but after last night, wow do I ever hate it more.

Peyton's year, at age 37, should put to rest forever all these GOAT questions. 18 is #1, period.
But as you say, Luck makes it easy on us. We can root for the Colts and have a puncher's chance against any team in the league while Peyton shreds the record books and FINALLY gets the credit that we were all labeled as homers for heaping upon him when he was in blue and white.

Isn't this sort of stating what we already know: the most important component of pass defense is pass rush, not coverage in the secondary?

@Ben Savage @bradicus18 Werner does look a lot less lost out there, and he's got the talent, unlike Walden.

Such a confusing day. The Colts spent all day doing things to the Niners that I usually only see other teams do to the Colts. I didn't know how to react.

I would like to see some basic diagnostic statistics on that results table, because it's screaming out to me "no statistically-significant correlation".

McGlynn might actually be a better center than Satele. I can't believe I'm writing these words.

@thellamajockey He looked better than Walden in every facet of the game. Strong against the run, good instincts, great quicks off the ball. As he matures, our D WILL get better.

@Nate Dunlevy @Music Man I think that tells you all you need to know about the front office's mysterious Walden love affair.
5 months, 2 weeks ago on Eyes in the Backfield: 49ers
@GregC @squirrel @DougEngland I think he means that without context (how does this stat compare with other coaches in THEIR first six games) an anomalous result is just numbers. It's like when people say "15 TRILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT! THE COUNTRY IS BANKRUPT!" Stats are only meaningful when you can compare apples to apples, rather than just pointing at an apple and saying "Look! An apple! Fire Grigson!"
I'm being facetious, but you get my point.
