Default Baldy's Breakdowns - Colts / Kansas City

Baldy spread his love around this morning.

Of course, he still enjoys watching big Q play - but he also praised the rest of the O-Line and a few rookies on the defense as well.

Truly great win last night, but it troubles me that despite our dominant O-line, our QB managed only a meager 151 yards on 29 pass attempts (5.1 yard average) and rarely attempted - much less completed - any passes over 10 yards. He needs to improve for us to get to the promised land.

I dont disagree, Mahomes had 10 passes over 15 yards, Brissett had one. I have to think that a good bit of it is game planning, we were not going to win a shootout with the Chiefs and their weakness was their run defense. We had to run the ball, consume the clock and keep PM off the field, and keep our battered secondary off the field.

I think more impressive is that everyone in the stadium knew we were going to run the ball and then we dared them to stop us. They couldn't, and we exposed them by simply by executing. This isn't some "blueprint to beat the Chiefs," but rather simple, straightforward ball control offense.

I'm not worried that we didnt ask Brissett to huck it downfield. The last FG drive of the game we took aver with 1:15 left in the third and did not give it back until 7:40 left in the 4th.

My breakdown. Pay Anthony Castonzo now. You are not going to find a better LT in the draft or as an FA, so let's lock him up.

Fair points, though a few counterpoints to consider: (1) if we're going to play the dink and dunk short game then Brissett has to be better than a 62% passer on those kind of passes, and (2) I'm not sure our run game was quite as dominant as everyone's feeling in the afterglow of victory today - we averaged 4 YPC while I read that KC has given up an average of 5.1 YPC this season, and we had rely on converting a number of 4th downs to keep our drives alive. As to this latter point, some of this was undoubtedly due to unfortunate and highly questionable penalties or ineffective passes.

Agreed, the guy is only 31 and seems to keep himself in good shape for such a big guy, and offensive linemen can remain effective well into their thirties.

what troubles me, and we've seen it before already this season, is that even though we are running effectively, when we go play action, it never results in a big pass play. I still don't watch the all-22 so either our receivers can't get open despite other teams worrying about the run, or JB is not seeing the routes develop, he constantly checks down. I don't want to call him check-down Charlie, but I'm worried it's coming to that.

WhIle that's true they were still effective running the info 8 or 9 in the box.
