@Bobman1 Shaq's going to be good in the right place. IND could be that place w/ Manusky's creativity. They gotta commit to  him though.

@Lebo How much dead money would be left to count against the cap if the Colts cut the player that year

@muspirit Because he was awful in pass coverage and merely average against the run. Being a Pro Bowl alternate was a name recognition thing only.

@frank jones To me, McPhee is a complementary rusher. Benefited a lot from having guys like Suggs, Dumervil, Ngata, etc. taking attention away from him. Colts need a primary rusher more than another complementary guy. 

But replacing Walden with him? I couldn't say no.

@chip_bennett I'm not sure what you're talking about on the Richardson blown block. It was a six-man block and Richardson was responsible for the safety off the edge. http://coltsacademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/RichardsonSackGIF.gif

@metal_militia11 @Kyle Rodriguez I think Butler is far more replaceable than Toler, honestly. And I really like Butler. Toler got beat by some incredible individual plays on Sunday, both by Antonio Brown and Ben Roethlisberger. I didn't think he was particularly bad.

@metal_militia11 Toler is fine in man coverage as a second corner. When he's your first guy, look out. And Gordy is a big drop off in one-on-one. Needs a lot of safety help.

Luck gets a bit too much credit for a few of these, IMO. Like the one where he got hit as he threw against the Ravens. It's a little unlucky, sure, but he shouldn't be throwing that ball while getting hit. Get it out early or take the sack. Throwing while getting hit is a bad idea all around. 

And while it's unlucky to have a tipped ball be picked, it's also a fact you have to deal with. If his throws weren't high against DEN, they don't get tipped up and picked (granted, Fleener should have caught that one), if he doesn't try to force it to Bradshaw against the Ravens, it doesn't get picked. 

Every quarterback gets unlucky on interceptions, I don't think we have any basis to say Luck's been more/less lucky than most QBs when it comes to picks. I'd lean more toward the numbers argument. Luck's interception percentage itself isn't that high: 2.7% this year, which is right around Peyton's career numbers. You'd like to see it be lower, for sure, but it's not a big problem.

@John D This is an NFL-centric podcast, and the Colts' game meant relatively little to the league as a whole.

@hankster One positive note on T.Y.: Ben Gundy and I made a point to watch him on film this week. The dude is getting open a LOT. But, with the offensive system, Luck often looks a the short route as the first read, and never even looks in Hilton's direction.

@Bobman I think "really off" is unfair for Luck, honestly. His ball placement on about four throws in the first half was not good, but for most of the game he was playing really well, I think. I probably would have graded Luck a C- after the initial watch, but when going back through the tape, It'd be more like a B or B-, not stellar, but not as poor as the perception seemed to be.

@Macko Pagano is a good coach in many aspects. I'm sure Pep has his strengths as well. But the conservatism just KILLS them on the field.

@Nate Dunlevy @flindt From what I've seen, he's ok in zone coverage, but man is a struggle.

@smonroe I don't, but I didn't think they were going to win against SF, SEA, DEN last year either so...


This team is weird (in a good way) like that.

@Fot Bollar @Kyle Rodriguez I never understood people saying he was lazy during training camp. Didn't see that at all during the week that I was there. I think a part of it is his long stride, and the way his gait is naturally when running. It's very smooth, doesn't look like he's "churning." 

But then you realize he's two steps past the corner.

@AJ_ We are actually self-hosting it, thanks to the help of a Colts fan who helped us create the server. Presents a few more difficulties, but it's also more flexible for us.

Thanks for bringing up that route on the touchdown, Andrew. You can see the defender's hips turn outside, likely thinking he was going to run a fade, before turning back inside when Rogers cuts. Rogers ran another impressive slant route on his one-handed, diving catch earlier in the drive, actually turned the DB around completely. 

It's another reason why I resented the "lazy" comments after The Kick during that game. Rogers was running good routes in the fourth quarter of a preseason game in which the play calling didn't attempt to feature him all game. The penalty was dumb, but attacking his character that was not related to that penalty was over the top.

The only guy (besides Tipton) to produce on offense and he has to go ruin it with a punt.

@mshah9008 Yeah, it's tough to tell on that without the All-22. 

The one thing that I did notice against NO is that they ran a lot of 2TE sets with one receiver running a short, dump-off route. When Luck did have time, he seemed to be looking downfield, but he rarely could find somebody open and ended up dumping it off.
