I understand your guys point but.... We can't win a superbowl with this team but we are close to being an elite team imo ... but we need a couple pieces ...why not go get the pieces and roll the dice
First, I would take Smith in a heartbeat for one of our 3rds or a 4th. Adds another dimension to this offense. Jackson, no thanks. Bush, Thomas and Miller are good enough for me. Not enough carries for everyone and Bush is still our main RB.
As for the Colts, I was always a Peyton Manning fan, thus the Colts were always my second favorite team. They will always be my second favorite team. But this game will come down to our D line getting pressure on Luck to make him hurry his throws and make mistakes. Kid is a legit QB in this league already, so we can't just go in there and think we will dominate Luck. Now, dominating the rest of the team . . . that's a huge possibility.
The Colts O-line is not good at all and the whole D-line should have a field day with them. I really think that a four man rush will disrupt Luck enough all game, then when you mix in some blitzes . . . good day! we just have to hope that Smith can contain Wayne and Burnett/Dansby can cover Fleener. Donald Brown is nothing to worry about . . . we will stuff the run with ease.
I think that they will load the box to stop our run game, so I don't think Bush/Thomas will run wild on them. I hope Tanny can play, but if not, I am confident in Moore doing adequate job to win. Fasano will be huge this game if Moore plays. Moore is in love with Fasano on the field.
Who would have thought that this game would have serious playoff implications? This is going to be a fun game. Our stud qb vs your stud qb. Too bad Vontae is out
Watching the Giants bullpen like:
- “He runs meetings like a coach. Basically, I’m playing with a coordinator on the field. He’s a football God. He sees everything, and he sees the big picture of everything." - Frank Gore on Andrew Luck
- "He is as smart as Peyton, as accurate as Brady, tougher than Ben and as athletic as RG3." - Anonymous Head Coach on Andrew Luck
Tired of saying this, but Bush has to have a big game. He needs to start having big games again.
I'd say yes, but only if he's cheap, and he likely won't be. Pick up a cheaper FA or draft another RB late or give Thigpen more opportunities.
I wonder what our special teams has cooking up. It's exciting to finally have a coaching staff that can find weaknesses in teams in all 3 aspects of football.
Our special teams has been MVP the last 2 games IMO. This past week, they had the blocked punt for a td, a blocked fg, and an onside kick.
The game before they had that fake punt for a run to help run the clock out on 4th down.
And fields has just been incredible.
Tannehill is also taking first team reps, is limited.
