Each week Cheap Chester Rogers Jersey ,worst plays (or situations) from the previous game, but I’ll be listening to Stampede Blue to choose which plays should given a closer look as I hope to explain what happened in greater detail than the broadcasters can. Often you’ll hear “how did that guy get so open?” and I hope to be able to answer that question for Colts fans this season.This week’s poll winners were Nyheim Hines’ touchdown catches, in second place and the big winner of the week was the 4th and 4 play that ended the game for the Colts. A lot has been said about this game and eventually we will all move on to the games that follow but looking at this 4th and 4 play means it might stick with me and I hate that. First we’ll look at what I hope will be the beginning of a long beautiful relationship between Andrew Luck and Nyheim Hines. Touchdown number one:The Texans give Andrew Luck a man to man look with a single high safety over the top. They rush four and drop seven into coverage. On the backside of the play the two receivers run in breaking routes at five and two yards deep while the tight end works the seam. On the play side the receiver that lines up furthest outside runs an in at the goal line while Hines runs an out and up. The receiver who cuts toward the middle of the field runs his route at the deep safety meaning he won’t be able to get to Hines in the corner. Luck sees that he has true one on one coverage and throws an absolutely beautiful pass. This ball was either being caught by a Colt or it was incomplete, there was no way it was being intercepted. In a play where the pass is this good, it’s rare to have an equally impressive catch but Hines managed to pull it off. This wasn’t a match up that many people would have told you was in the Colts favor before the ball was snapped. Tyrann Mathieu isn’t the same player he was a few years ago but he is still a very good defensive back and Nyheim Hines, a fourth round rookie beat him with a good route and then went up and made a fantastic catch. This play was less about great design and more about players making great plays. Touchdown number two:Once again the Texans are in man coverage with a single high safety and they rushed four again also. On the backside of the play the Colts run a spot concept (which I wrote a little about right here) which draws the linebacker who has an underneath zone, to that side of the field to defend against the clump of receivers, while Ryan Grant and Nyheim Hines run a Texas concept. Grant’s job is to make the safety stay deep to defend him. If the safety comes underneath to cover Hines, this ball is going to Grant. Instead the safety stayed deep. Hines is being covered by none other than Tyrann Mathieu once again. After getting beat outside and knowing he has help back towards the middle of the field, Mathieu over plays this to the outside, fighting through what he probably thought was a pick designed to get Hines a free run at the pylon. Instead Hines runs an angle route back towards the middle that has been cleared out by Grant for an easy six points. Fourth and four:The Colts faced man coverage with a single safety over the top. All four routes were run just beyond the sticks and were all isolation routes. They didn’t really work with any of the other routes to pick or rub or even make a defender make a decision. It was just one on one. In order to run routes like these and have success against tight man coverage you have to have receivers who can make a play. T.Y. Hilton has made plays like this in the past, but it’s not where he’s best and further he wasn’t in the game after going down with an injured hamstring much earlier in the contest. So what were Luck’s other options?At the bottom of the screen receiver Ryan Grant probably gets held but either way his defender played it well and prevented him from running his route, disrupting the timing and ensuring the quarterback would have to throw somewhere else. Lined up in the slot at the bottom of the screen is Zach Pascal. The first few times I watched this play I couldn’t believe how open he seemed to be, then I saw it. If Luck throws this ball to Pascal with enough zip to beat the corner, the underneath linebacker is probably going to be celebrating in the end zone with his teammates after picking the ball off and returning it forty-five yards for six points.Eric Ebron runs an angle towards the middle and is blanketed by two linebackers and Nyheim Hines couldn’t have beaten the defender shadowing him quickly enough to get a first down anyway. Andrew Luck made the correct decision based on the play call. Chester Rogers becomes the go-to-guy on 4th and 4 in overtime in an effort to win the game. I’ll let you decide what happens with Luck’s pass, I’m not sure if Luck just didn’t get enough on it, he was rifling balls in all day so the “there’s something seriously wrong with Andrew Luck’s arm” crowd has absolutely no ground to stand on. This ball did come up short and Chris Blystone has convinced me that J.J. Watt may have gotten a piece of the ball. I can’t tell with absolute certainty that’s what happened, but it’s the only thing that makes sense given what we witnessed Luck do all day on Sunday. I don’t like Reich’s decision to go for it on fourth down here. We’ve all talked about it ad nauseam http://www.coltscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-denico-autry-jersey , but he was being aggressive, fine. I get the decision, I disagree with it but I get it. What I will never understand is why you call that play. Why run four iso routes against a good secondary and your best receiver on the field probably plays running back? Why run that play when you have Eric Ebron who could have lined up outside and Luck could have thrown the ball high and let him go make a play? Why not run one of the pick plays we’ve seen so many times? Why not run a variation of Nyheim Hines’ second touchdown catch? Why not run a smart, well designed play, especially after having all the time in the world to decide what play to run after taking a timeout? Why? Frank Reich screwed this one up. There’s really no way around it. If the pass was better is this a completion? Maybe. If the route was better? Maybe. Ultimately Reich sent out a unit without its best receiver and relied on them to just make a play. Andrew Luck gives you a chance every down he’s out there but Reich has to learn that he can’t rely on talent that just isn’t there. Every situation like this is going to need superior scheme to consistently win. I’m being pretty hard on Reich because he deserves it. If you ask him, I’m sure he would tell you he believes he made the right call and he should believe that. He should have that confidence in his players, he should be so emotionally invested in his team that he believed one of those guys could make a play, that’s a good thing. I just hope as he puts the disappointment of losing this game further in the rear-view mirror he can reconsider the call he made here. So far Frank Reich, Nick Sirianni, Matt Eberflus and the entire coaching staff have been nothing short of fantastic. I don’t know if the collection of these guys is as exciting as say Sean McVay and Wade Phillips are with the Los Angles Rams, but I know for a fact that together they’ve easily been one of the best coaching staffs I’ve seen in Indianapolis. They have an identifiable game plan and they make effective in-game adjustments based on what the opponent is doing. They’ve done a good job anticipating changes the other team is going to make and figuring out ways to succeed in the face of those changes. They’re using specific players in specific roles and doing all they can to maximize the talent they do have. If all of this sounds like good coaching, you’re right, so far they’ve been good. This coaching staff has been good and if Matt Eberflus continues to lead the defense the way he has I’m actually pretty worried that half the defense won’t have made it to their second contract before he becomes a head coach in the NFL. Imagine what ‘Flus will be able to do a year from now with more developed talent and another off season of new talent coming on board. The Colts are second in the league in sacks with 17 through the first quarter of the season, imagine what he could do if a guy like Kemoko Turay continues to develop. Despite how encouraged I am by the future, Sunday showed that Reich is human, he’s going to make mistakes and hopefully we aren’t relying on any 4th down plays in the last minutes of any more overtime games. I went into this week fully expecting to do a Quincy Wilson full season film room piece. When I tweeted that out though, many fans offered up other ideas. One suggestion that caught my eye look at exactly why the Colts’ screen game has been so ineffective. I was so intrigued that I decided to put off the Wilson film room until next week and started researching Colts screen plays. There are many factors that go into running a successful screen play. The quarterback, running back Cheap Malik Hooker Jersey , and offensive line all have to be masters of deception. If the defense becomes aware of the screen too quickly, the play has almost no chance of succeeding. Along with this deception, the three units all have to be in perfect sync since a screen play is so dependent on the other groups all doing their job. Lastly, the coaching staff needs to know exactly when the right time is to call these plays.Here is where the main issues are with the Colts’ screen game and why— for the most part— the calls have been unsuccessful. The calls are very obvious, the timing is out of sync, and often times either the offensive line or running back is giving away the play way too early. But instead of just rambling on about the deficiencies in the screen game, let me show you all a few examples.Reasons for failurePredictable play callingHead coach Frank Reich has been masterful at times with his play calling this season. He has instituted a lot of quick timing routes that have made life much easier for quarterback Andrew Luck. That being said, he is still growing as a play caller. He tends to favor certain plays over others and becomes a bit too one dimensional at times. I want to highlight a series of three plays against the Bengals that shows how predictability in the screen game can be costly. I do want to note that this was early in the season and Reich has definitely improved in this area since.This first clip comes on a 2nd and 5 play with only 1:28 left in the first half against the Bengals. This is a textbook version of a successful screen play. Running back Nyheim Hines sells like he is staying in to block, the offensive line sells that they are pass blocking, and Luck looks off the linebackers before coming back to the screen. It is deceptive in it’s nature too as it comes with little time left in the half when the defense is expecting more passes downfield. This results in a modest 10 yard gain with a good catch and run by Hines.So the first play is run very well, no issue with it at all for me. My issue comes just a minute later on the exact same drive on a 1st and 10. Reich dials up the exact same play to the exact same side. The execution by the players here is actually similar to the first play but it’s because the call is so obvious to read that it is blown up. Bengals’ defensive lineman Ryan Glasglow notices the exact same thing that everyone watching notices the second that Hines takes his first step towards the line. The play is very easy to read and the fact that it was run just a minute prior gave away all deception.So, obviously the play was blown up because the defense could expect it a second time. So fast forward to under a minute left in the fourth quarter and guess what play Reich draws up? You guessed it, the exact same play to the exact same side. I understand going back to play that worked earlier but there has to be more deception here. The Bengals know that this exact play was run twice in the two minute drill in the first half. They are completely expecting this play to be run again in the two minute drill in the second half. This predictability contributed to the poor screen game in this first game.Skilled defenders Another major factor though that is just hard to account for is elite defenders. The Colts have faced off against the likes of Geno Atkins, Fletcher Cox, JJ Watt, Jadeveon Clowney, Jonathan Allen, and other stout defensive lineman to start the season. That is a brutal stretch. Sometimes these star players make unreal plays that you can’t really account for when you draw it up. This clip is the best example I could find of such a play. The Colts know that they are going against an elite talent in Fletcher Cox so they double-team him initially to sell that it is just a normal pass play. When the lineman breaks off the double team Jabaal Sheard Jersey , Cox bursts through the line and is able to run down Hines for a small gain. The Colts schemed this play up perfectly to account for Cox and even had two lineman get their hands on him. At the end of the day, great players make great plays. Not much you can do here as an offense to stop this. Out of syncTiming is everything when it comes to the screen game. One player getting a little ahead of themselves and the whole play is a disaster. What I really noticed when watching all of the Colts’ screen plays is that often its just that one player making a mistake that leads to failure. Here is an example of the running back being way too impatient. Running back Jordan Wilkins is tasked with running the exact same screen that we’ve seen Hines do in every other clip. Notice how Hines keeps his head upfield to sell his route whereas Wilkins here is way too hesitant around J.J. Watt. Wilkins never really sells the route and this is able to tip off that the screen is coming. As a result, the play is ruined. This next clip is one that shows the offensive lineman throwing off the timing of the screen. Quenton Nelson and Ryan Kelly are supposed to be the lead blockers on a screen for running back Marlon Mack. Their goal is to initiate contact with their defensive lineman then get out in front of Mack and take on the corners. Nelson stays on his block way too long which takes him out of the play. Kelly then trips over the player that Nelson is blocking, leaving Mack by himself with corners and safeties closing in. Mack still needs to catch this ball— obviously— but even if he does, this play is a 4 yard loss at best.Should there be any optimism?The above clips combined with the ever growing pile of failed screens every Sunday begs the question, should the Colts should even attempt screen passes this season?In short, yes. This team is very capable of successfully running screen plays. They have athletic lineman along with capable running backs to catch the ball. With Reich growing as a play caller and becoming less predictable, these plays should work. With a set group of linemen that includes very young mobile players, they should be able to get the timing down and get out in front of running backs. With Andrew Luck getting better each and every week, these plays will eventually begin to work.Take this play by Jordan Wilkins. Wilkins sells the screen perfectly. The lineman are all able to get in front and Wilkins takes the quick screen right off their backs for a 12 yard gain. This team has the capability of running screens effectively. Final ThoughtsOverall its tough to expect a team that features a quarterback returning from a year long injury, two rookie running backs, and two rookie offensive lineman to just come in and master a timing play like a screen play. These plays will succeed with more and more repetition. With all three running backs healthy and the offensive line finally set, I expect more reps and stronger chemistry built between these groups. As a result, the screen game will get better.The screen game is close to being very effective, the players just need to improve their timing and chemistry. I expect this to be an issue that corrects itself as the season continues to play out.
