I had a bad feeling heading into this game. I just felt like the Chargers at home after the week they had against the Raiders would be a tough matchup. And I was right. What I was wrong about was how long it would take for people to start saying people should be fired.
IF we win tonight, and that is a big if, then we’re 5-1 looking at a very tough, but beatable, Broncos team.
If we lose tonight we’re 4-2 looking at a very tough Broncos team, which after playing them we will likely be 4-3 and I predict if this happens we’ll be right back where we were, with people calling for jobs and burning their furniture for warmth.
So we’re in a position to take a commanding lead but the Titans are a tough team and I wouldn’t count them out to be 4-3 after next week either. So while we’re in a position to be this or that, I won’t be comfortable until weeks 15-17 when all of this has been sorted out.
Afterall, I’m in a position to make 6 figures this year… but it’s not likely. by cq.noble on Oct 14, 2013 | 8:49 AM
The bottom line is, we had a bad game. We even had those when Peyton was here. But should we just fire everyone responsible? If we fired everyone as often as some writers say pretty soon we would look like the Al Davis Raiders. And not the good Al Davis Raiders, the late 2000's Raiders firing everyone bi-annually.
Mistakes were made. Passes were dropped. Tackles were missed. Edges weren't set. Blocks and opportunities were missed. Personnel decisions were botched. Game plans weren't executed and points weren't scored.
It was a bad game.
There's no reason to skirt around it, no reason to call it something other than what it is, but it was ONE. BAD. GAME. Every now and then it happens. If it becomes a pattern, then we should talk about people leaving, not after week 6 with a 4-2 record. I think some people on this site may be schizoaffective, not that there's anything wrong with anyone who is schizoaffective but if you suffer from this condition you know about the irrational mood swings and disproportionate responses that can be given to adverse situations.
What I'm really trying to say is, some of you people are clearly insane.
And that's okay. I still love you. I don't feel good about the loss either. I have acknowledged the loss and the reasons we lost, now it's time to talk positives.
Positive #1: This Guy:
I cannot count how many times people said he sucked, he was bad, a shell of his former self. And last night Vini proved them wrong. He may not have the same leg he had all those years ago, but he's still a really good kicker and proved as much las night.
Positive #2: Trent Richardson Highlight Here
His 40 yards weren't breathtaking but he got them on only 10 carries and given a different game situation he would have gone over 100. The video above is WHY we traded for him. If you can't tell from that one clip that Trent Richardson is the most talented back Indy has, you probably named your seeing eye dog something like Lucky, or Fido.
What actual positives did you notice from the game last night? I know there weren't many but these two were huge for me. Trent flashed and Adam looked like Adam. Bad game. Good signs.
