Except they were leading in almost all those games, many by double digits, and most coaches would not blow a double digit lead on a consistent basis like this.

An offense that disappears for quarters at a time and gives up crucial possessions and sometimes points in the latter stages of games doesn't help matters either. But no one seems to want to acknowledge that the offense is very young overall and going through growing pains while the defense is average at best art its most crucial position, which causes them to get beat, especially when they have to be on the field for huge chunks of quarters and halves.

Don't give me that garbage. The Colts have led by two scores going into the fourth quarter and lost what seems like every game except the two Pagano could not get us ready for. Pagano is trash and the sooner you realize it, the sooner you will feel like you are not a pariah.

Pariah? This is a message board, I would never take it that seriously. I'm also not kow-towing to a baseless opinion just because the majority of you hold it.

The majority of knowledgeable football fans and commentators, to be honest.

I get that you disagree, but I would not call our general opinion baseless, there’s plenty of material to back up that opinion

The young offensive "talent" is scarce. Young yes, talent not so much...

I've seen it all, none of it is very convincing. It also doesn't help that the group position changes based on convenience to make Pagano the one who's at fault no matter what.
