Uh-Oh, Powers may be in Trouble. If Butler comes out & plays Well, he could very well be #2 behind Davis & Powers moves to Slot

Better watch out

We should be alright..the Jags passing attack is nothing to worry about and we get a good glimpse of what Butler and Gordy can do..

Vontae Davis out, Powers out, mathis probably out... the offense better comes in fire because we will need a lot of points.

Stanford Routt is looking better and better. we have 5mil in cap space right now to sign him. because we do have the Pats next week and I don't want Vaughn, Butler, and Gordy as my CBs in that game

Hope this doesn't mean Sergio Brown sees the field in Nickel and Dime packages

josh Gordy is the Nickel back. Brown might be the dime back though

They should activate Teddy Williams from the PS so we can see how he plays when the bullets are flying. He honestly can't be much worse than Powers/Vaughn in completion percentage and it is against the Jags.

I believe it was Sergio Brown that blew that play. Hopefully he remembers.

Butler><Powers does it matter? In one corner we have no secondary in the other corner you have no QB and no star rb this week, yeah I can see CBS raving about this intriguing scenario :rollseyes: they are probably thanking the football gods for Andrew Luck right about now, Lets just find a way to pull it out and get some guys healthy

Our secondary should be called our tertiary.

I'm not worried about the secondary for Thursday they should be fine. It's next week vs the Patriots is where I'm worried

Arians ruled Powers out and said Butler would start in his place.

Mike Chappell@mchappell51

#colts Darius butler replaces powers in starting lineup

Wouldve preferred to See Josh Gordy get the start but Butler is a physical corner in man coverage hopefully he holds his own this week.

It looking like the shoot out a predicted

Blaine Gabbert can't complete passes against air. And the jags RBs not named MJD are averaging 2.7 ypc. The jags only chance in this game is if they keep it low scoring, they can't score enough points to make it a shootout

Maybe Brady gets kidnapped by some crazed Pats fan and the Luck/Mallett rivalry begins early? If not I hope we can win in a shoot out

At least we are not going into enemy territory with a water pistol(which I think was even forgot to be filled with water in my opinion), New Orleans 2011 ring a bell?

Butler was a 2nd round pick, so he clearly has tons of potential. He also is pretty young, so there is room to grow. One thing that worries me is that he was released by the Pats. The Pats' secondary isn't loaded and it's not like they have a ton of superstars back there. But I still think he has tons of potential

he was released 2 years ago when the pats had decent talent

He played in Carolina but was released when they drafted a couple corners

    • Good point. Peyton road off into the sunset a winner, our GM finally picked up a quality successor to Saturday, the lacerated kidney has healed, & we have nice upgrades at OC, DC, & QB coach.    There are good guys like Dynasty 13 & Yehoodi that I respect as NE fans among others. True, some fans are never happy no matter how much success their team enjoys. Some overzealous fans do take moaning & groaning to an art form, which is both funny & sad when their expectation level reaches monumental proportions on a frequent basis. You'd think that 4 rings since the 2000 era would make Foxboro fans easy going & content, but not so much for some bizarre reason.    I always say this though. If Luck was accused of deflating balls during an AFC Championship Game, he would have owned it & fessed up. And I guarantee you, nobody in the blue horseshoe would have been demanded a ride all the way to the Supreme Court to clear his name because we would accept the inevitable, take the repercussions, & move on in less than 18 months. I wonder where all those Judge Berman For President t-shirts went? My money is on being transformed into dust rags, engine rebuild rags, bandanas for Sturgis South Dakota Harley Davidson Bike rallies, or lining the bottom of a bird cage just off the top of my head.    Regarding Heath Evans man crush, he probably would save Emperor Palpatine sorry the Gray Hoodie 1st. However, he did win "my precious" SB bling in the Bayou with Payton so Gollum, I mean, Heath would be torn over head coach allegiances there. 
    • Yeah I still don't see them as a Playoff team. Patriots will win that Division IMO which then they have to get in as a WildCard and so many teams in the AFC could go 9-7 or 10-6 at that point.
    • And those who don't like Fitzpatrick would note that last year,  all the Jets had to do was win week 17 vs. Buffalo and they were in the playoffs.   And Buffalo, with nothing to play for (except Rex Ryan beating his old team)  upset the Jets and kept them from the post-season.      Fitz played poorly and the Jets lost.      There are many that think that says it all about Fitz.   Good enough to get you near the playoffs.     Bad enough to keep you from getting in.   Maybe this year is different?  
    • Yeah this has really been a great summer. Peyton went out a Champion and was cleared by the league of taking HGH/PED's, Tom was found guilty by the league and has to serve his 4 game suspension, and Andrew is getting healthy. I didn't like the fact we went 8-8 last season but stuff happens. It's rare that a team is Very Good to Great every season which we have been since the 2003 Season other than 2011 and last season. 1 bad season (2011) and 1 mediocre one (last season) in the last 13, I'll take that. We have been a threat to go far in the Playoffs in 11 of the past 13 seasons basically. Regarding the Patriots fanbase, they are like the maddest/whiniest bunch I have ever came across reading their comments on different Boards. You would think they would be the happiest bunch in the universe of sports winning 4 SB's since the 2001 Season and they practically go to the Final 4 every season which is unheard of but they complain about everything. Some people think our fanbase is never satisfied, we don't hold a candle to their fanbase regarding that.
    • Frank Gore -- most RBs would have been hurt mid-season last year or rushed for <700 yards with what he had -- he  almost broke 1,000 with pretty much nothing... maybe I'm way off after watching T-Rich for a couple of years, but I think Gore was pretty darn good.
