Colts dropping ball as losses mount, games slip away
Colts coach Frank Reich doesnt need to spend much time dissecting game tapes to figure out whats going wrong Mo Alie-Cox Jersey.He sees it with his own eyes at full speed.Dropped passes, turnovers and inexplicable penalties have fueled the Colts four-game losing streak, leaving them in a big midseason hole. Its been an issue and its past the point of OK, that was a fluke,' Reich said Monday when pressed specifically on the issue of drops. We just have to keep working, catching balls.Sportradar lists only six teams with drop percentages worse than Indianapolis 8.7, and the Colts are tied with Cleveland for most drops in the NFL with 17. Indy tight end Eric Ebron and Baltimore receiver Michael Crabtree are tied for the league lead with six drops each https://www.coltsgoodsstore.com/8-Game, according to Sportradar.Colts backup receiver Zach Pascal is tied for 11th with three.Because the definition of a drop varies widely, numbers and percentages can be skewed.But former Colts offensive coordinator and interim coach Bruce Arians said during Sundays telecast he counted 10 drops by the Colts in a loss at New England in Week 5 and 16 over the previous two games Marvell Tell III Jersey.The trend continued when Chester Rogers dropped Andrew Lucks pass on the first play from scrimmage.He was far from alone.Rookie running back Nyheim Hines dropped a touchdown pass later in the game and second-year running back Marlon Mack joined the club when he failed to snag a screen pass on the games second play. Instead, Mack, who had missed three straight games and four of the first five with an injured hamstring, batted the ball up in the air and Jets cornerback Morris Claiborne returned an interception 17 yards for the games first score.Its mental, Mack said after the 42-34 loss. We just have to lock in and focus. Everyone here can catch, we just have to lock in and squeeze the ball.Another explanation is injuries.While Luck has played reasonably well behind an offensive line that has used five different starting lineups, he has been without Pro Bowl receiver T.Y. Hilton the last two games and Pro Bowl tight end Jack Doyle for four straight games. Receivers Ryan Grant and Marcus Johnson also left with injuries and couldnt finish Sundays game.Following the loss in New England, Luck said the Colts needed to get out of their own way before they could start winning games and he started by pointing to his own turnover woes.Penalties have been equally problematic.The result In addition to sharing the league lead in drops, Indy also ranks in the top five in interceptions , fumbles lost and penalties .Reich, who played on four Super Bowl teams in Buffalo and won a Super Bowl ring with Philadelphia, knows its a combination ripe for disaster though he believes the Colts can fix these problems. He has seen it before.I wont go into specific names but Ive seen players go into a little bit of a funk for a few games, Ive definitely seen that happen and Ive seen guys get out of the funk and go on to have great years or great careers, he said.They just have to start holding onto the ball.Its a bit frustrating. I feel a bit like a broken record, but talking about it, thats the easy part. Its doing it, living it, but Im not discouraged, Luck said. There are a bunch of competitive people in there Brandon Hitner Jersey, but I think were going in the right direction and the results will come.
