Default Any changes to the coaching staff?

At the very least, the defensive backs coach , Jonathan Gannon, should be on shaky ground after that whole unit regressed.

With no pass rush and an inability of the offense to stay on the field, those guys cant cover with modern rules for unlimited time for a qb to throw

We gonna have this argument ad nauseam? Yes, we know the pass rush is part of the problem. It clearly wasn't the entire problem though because the opposing qb's didn't just sit back there all day every down. They got the ball out quickly plenty of times and still completed WAY too many passes on a secondary that played like garbage without Kenny Moore. For a stretch there, they were historically bad. That's not all on the pass rush. We were middle of the pack tied for 16th on team sacks with 41, but those teams below us didn't allow back to back games of 73% and then 97% completion percentage. That's a shitty secondary. Stop giving them a free pass.

You know what helps the DBs? A quarterback who keeps the D off the field, burns the clock an creates TD drives instead of settling for FGs. Forcing teams to play from behind

Not having Luck influenced Both sides of the ball.

This defense is based on getting to the Qb. Houston did well, but losing Turay and later Autry really crippled this D. What happened to the Colts when they lost Freeny for the super bowl?

The Dungy D requires guys getting to the QB. You build a team with guys who can execute the D as designed. You lose all your pass rushers, its a problem.

The Rams have a lot of good DBs, but this year, they couldnt get to the QB. Why do I need to keep explaining this?

Because you refuse to place any blame on the obvious, instead, just make excuses. It doesn't matter how good or bad the pass rush or QB is, there is zero reason a secondary should EVER give up 97% completion percentage... EVER. Those weeks where they faced the bucs and the saints, the secondary looked lost, had horrible communication and just played like shit.

You know what helps a pass rush? A secondary that doesn't give up 97% completion percentage for an entire fucking game. Maybe the secondary playing so poorly made the pass rush look worse because the opposing qb easily found open receivers... WIDE open receivers.

Sounds like you two are having a chicken/egg discussion.

Nothing is obvious in the NFL.

The Colts d gave up 30 more points this year than last year.
The Colts o scored 60 less points this year than last year.

2018 Colts were ranked 5th points, 7th in yards on offense
2019 Colts 16th points, 25th in yards

Yeah, the DBs are the problem.

Last year our Defense faced bad QBs....this year they faced some better ones and got exposed.
