Fan of the Colts and beautiful offensive football everywhere.
You say want to know what I would really like to read this offseason? Thanks for Asking I'll tell you. I want read an article telling all of us that Rogers is camped out a Wayne's house and Wayne is teaching him how to run routs like a real pro. That's what I want to read about.

@JeremyBlakely @MyColtsAccount @MarcusDugan Toronto! Bahhhh! Vancouver all the way! ;o)
Woo hoo! My faith in Grigson might come back with more moves like this.

No. Losing a Wiff Bro is the important thing. The sooner that happens the better.

True, but McGlynn was actually better than Satele at center. Or at least it meant only one of the Wiff Bros was on the field which improved the line significantly.
I really want to know what sort of dirt Satele and McGlynn have on the Grigson and the Colts organization. Did they witness Irsay murdering puppies while screaming "I hate the Hoosiers" or something? I have no other explanation for why they are both still on the team.

So Kyle, were you and Bill Barnwell separated at birth? :)

Great break down. It makes me even more hopeful for next year. I really wish Brown was coming back.

As a Canadian who watches the odd CFL game, I certainly noticed Mumaba when the Lions played the Bombers. Not the most skilled, but a fast sideline to sideline sort of guy. The CFL is all about passing and using space (wider and longer field) so I would expect his coverage skills to be decent too.

I wonder, what does Pep think of all this? Is Chud waiting in the wings to take over if the offense has problems? The FO seemed pretty down on Pep for a first year guy (and who, at least to me, acquitted himself better than Manusky or Grigson last year).

re:running. It is useful. What I really liked about the last few weeks of the season and the first playoff game is that the Colts came out aggressively throwing and running out of the no-huddle to build a lead and then ran a lot to salt the game away. To me that is the best approach.
As for Luck running. I'd like to see that more too. Maybe not too many designed runs, but definitely more role outs and options to scramble. As you rightly pointed out that played a big part in the offense's effectiveness.

Yeah. This is year Grigson proves he either has the chops of be a GM or should be let go. I'm pretty happy Pep and Pagano, but I still don't really know what to think about Grigson or trush his ability to build a team.
I feel pretty conflicted. If I knew what sort of offense the Colts were going to run my feelings would be much less conflicted. If, for instance, if they run the offense from the last couple weeks of the season, I think they have a shot at being a dominant team with only minor improvements. If the go back to conservative play calls and 2 yard runs well...To me the defense is the real problem. If the Colts actually just let Luck fling it and made aggressive calls (which they will do as a last resort) the team could have a very good offense.
The defense, however, needs a lot more talent. Outside of Mathis there are simply no really good players on the side of the ball. That needs to change if the Colts want to be dominant. I don't mind Pagano's scheme or his defensive approach, but I don't think he is a guy who can consistently field a great defense with such limited talent. If Grigson goes out and actually gets two or three really talented guys for the defense then I'll believe the Colts have a short at a playoff run.
I think the point is that the Colts shouldn't be serious about running. Every stat in the book shows that pass defense and throwing the ball wins both games and championships. Better have a great defense, particularly one that hits the QB and forces turnovers, than a great running game. Running all the time just isn't necessary to win. The Colts won their division and a playoff game with almost no running game. Throw it a better defense and they could have made the SB.
1 month ago on Defending Crazy: Why I don't want the Colts to draft OL early
The draft is probably the best way to fix the D, but I also love to Grigson actually spend good money on a guy that actually has talent rather than some random oft injured prospect. That Hardy guy in Carloina, for instance, has been a beast against the run and disrupts passing sets. He wouldn't be cheap, but a dude with real talent could make a world of difference on Indy's defense. Mathis is pretty exposed there all by himself.
I know! They should trade Luck for all of the picks! It's not like they want to build around a star QB. Send him to St Louis or some other place with for two first round picks and a few later round picks. Then Grigson could draft Clowy and really build up a good defense while being mired in mediocrity for a few years. It's pretty much the only way to build up that balanced team Irsay wants so badly.

Nice work. Soo, out of curiosity, what would you like to see Grigson do to the line for next year?
1 month, 3 weeks ago on CA Charting Project: Offensive Line Charting, Divisional Round
I'd be more inclined to point out that the four remaining teams have good QBs. I'd say a good QB who can either beat you throwing or scrambling/running helps make any running game better.
