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

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

    • Encouraged by the weight loss to Goode, Banner, and Stewart.   Surprised by the gain to Morrison and Walker...though both are only 22 and 21 respectively and have yet to enter their primes so it could just be them filling out.    
    • To channel my inner Herm...   "You play to win the game!"
    • it's kind of a win win though if we do have a bad season I won't be too upset and if we have a great season then that's awesome. unless we keep our coach and get like a late 20s pick cuz I mean we'd still get value but not as much maybe as a top 10 pick obviously. it's not as simple as just want a good season not this year. even though I always want the Colts to kick butt
    •   Denver won a superbowl with Brock Osweiler (plus a living corpse Manning). Osweiler (and Siemian both) looked a lot better under Kubiak's hand than any QB under O'Brians hand since he left Boston. Not to mention, O'Brian replaced Fitzpatrick with Hoyer, who was worse than his predecessor, then replaced Hoyer with Osweiler who also was worse than his predecessor. Imo, O'Brian couldn't install a system for his lesser talented QB's, which would've helped them use their strengths.   On the other hand, Pagano is a secondary coach. Let's see what he has done there? The Colts (Grigson) didn't draft a single player in the secondary in the first 3 years. Of the free agent additions: Davis become a first team all pro. Mike Adams made the pro bowl multiple times and played his best football over age 30 in Indy. Dwight Lowery had a decent year here, one of his best. Greg Toler wasn't good, but he played his best football in Indy. The Laron Landry project failed, but it failed more due to not being able to stay healthy, than production. (I didn't particularly like him though, but I can't say he was terrible when healthy.) Darius Butler become a decent player, having his best years of his carreer in Indy. Then, when the Colts finally decided to draft in the secondary: D'Joun Smith turned out to be a bust. Health issues again. Geathers became a fine player - sadly, health issues there again.  For T.J. Green, Hooker and Wilson the jury is still out. And they found Rashan Melvin off the streets. This is not bad at all. Most players, who stayed healthy, played their best in Indy. Of course talent matters. You can't make pro-bowlers out of journeymen.     Pagano's record is 15-7 at home and 13-14 on the road against coaches ahead of him. That's not a bad record considering that coaches ahead of him usually have better rosters under their control. (The numbers might be off by one or two here or there, due to coaching changes, etc. I might counted - or not counted - a game played against a previous coach. I also counted games against Harbaugh and Kubiak supposing they'd be in top10 being active. Anyway the true record must be close to the above.).   All in all, I think Pagano is right there where he belongs to after 3 winning plus 2 down seasons. Middle of the pack. But ..... I think, based on "potential", he is better than his current value. He is a top10 coach on my list.   I know many of you guys strongly disagree, but that's my honest opinion. There are better coaches in the NFL than him. But not many. So I really wish Pagano will prove himself in 2017. Aaand, if he fails and will be fired, then I cross my fingers that there will be at least one guy available of those "not many". (Yes, despite my belief that he is a fine coach, I agree that he has to go if he fails to prove himself. Because that's the right decision. But honestly, I'll be scared if that happens. It won't be easy to find a better guy. And there is always a chance to be ChipKelly-d....)  
    • Banner was up to 260Lbs He was at 253lbs for the combine with a goal of 245lbs. I thought that's what I read.  Walker adding 7 so he's back up over 240.    Wilson at 207lbs jumps out to me. We heard about "football shape" for him. He was 211lbs at the combine. You'd think him being in better shape would make him a blink quicker. If he's a little faster we may not get him. I'm excited to see this kid with Hooker on the back end. If we can get Geathers back we could have something.
