Ron Meeks

I have been saying this defense would be weak since day 1 of Ron Meeks tenure.  I questioned this move because the Colts have never had a good defense, but they did have Peyton Manning as a QB putting up 40 points per game but were always having to make a last minute drive to win the game.  The only way his new scheme works is if we have 4 above average linemen who get pressure on the QB in which we don't have 1 who can do that so the cover 2 is useless.  The only problem I see with this is that Fox cannot or will not adjust to the strengths of other teams.  If we are losing at half, hang it up b/c more than likely we are done.  I drive a total of 4 hours to every home game for the past 6 years and haven't missed a home game yet, flown to San Diego, Green Bay, going to Arizona this year, so I am a huge Panther fan and this hurts to say, but we may need to go ahead and retool for the years to come.

Re: Ron Meeks

Interesting Fact-The colts defense have ranked at the bottom of the league in 3rd down defense the past 3 years-Hmmmmm remember yesterday the falcons had a key drive where they converted on 3 three and longs, plus we have looked horrible on 3rd downs when we should be blitzing and playing physical

I think we might be in for a long season, I hope we can turn it around in Dallas, but New York made it a lot harder by beating them last second last night

Re: Ron Meeks

I'm watching MNF and they just put up these stats about how Indy's  rate of stopping opposing teams on 3rd down have been 32nd, 30th, and 31st over the past 3 years. Sound familiar? What the freak have we got ourselves into?

Re: Ron Meeks

Our defense has some really good talent, but the coaches are not utilizing it-We will not see a change this year, but it looks like the same defense that was on the field last year-He should of just kept trgovac because its exactly the same defense as last year, at least with the way the other team can score-28 points is not acceptable, and Dallas is going to be wanting to redeem themselves from the debacle last night, but we should go in there with that same passion to show the world that we are not a fluke-Romo is no where near as good as Matt Ryan, he showed it last night, he almost looks like Jake Delhomme's Brother on the field, So maybe the defense can get some turnovers

Re: Ron Meeks

We have different personnel and skill sets.  They also finished in the top two twice and top sixth the other year in the last three years with teams having to supposedly throw to catch up all the time, does that mean we will too but even better bc we do not have the offense they have?  They also only gave up a record 6 rec TDs by far the best in the NFL last year.  Will we do that too.  Why do these things have to work only for the bad???  Should it work for the good too?

Are more realistically maybe just maybe our team will do it own thing.

Re: Ron Meeks

Don't forget Ron Meeks reports to John Fox. Like Trgovac I'm sure it's a little frustrating when you have ideas in mind you can't execute because of the philosophy Fox tries to instill.

Regardless, I was not impressed with the Meeks hiring to begin with, now I'm ready to run him out of town! I say we switch to a 3-4 defense. Perhaps with fewer linemen needed, we could suffer through fewer injuries in the linemen positions.

Re: Ron Meeks

If you guys can not see the mass difference in our scheme I am just not sure what team you are watching.  Meeks runs the D just like Trogvac did when he was here.  And Davidson runs the O just like Marty did when he was here.  The differences in both schemes is obvious to anyone that even played pee wee football, heck anyone that plays Madden.
