Give the kid credit he's played well and Gordy has too

Interesting to see how that changes the nickel and possibly the 2nd starting spot because of how awful powers has been. But then again Jax is no New England or Green Bay.

I think he has done well, but it has a lot to do with the team we are playing.

2 INTs when nobody had more than 1 before this game.

That is impressive even if it was against Gabbert & Henne

Fantastic game from him!!

2 picks, and shut down the guy he went against (he went against Blackmon for the most part, but went against Shorts too).

This kid is a keeper. Definitely better than Vaughn, who had another bad performance.

Yes. Let's not get carried away. The Jags are horrible. Let's see how he does against a real QB next week.

Dion told Butler that Colts might be his last team to give him a chance and he came through with a pick 6 and at the end and INT

Next week could be very interesting, considering Darius was drafted by the Pats. Not that it's a huge story, but maybe he will be able to key in on certain tendencies the Pats have and exploit them

Next man up...Tom Brady. Another important game next week for the Colts.

They'll probably decide to put Powers in over him. Butler seems to be more equipped for that spot skill set wise.

It was great hearing Mayock talk him up. Butler has potential, perhaps Manusky can bring it out of him.

We might just have something if Butler can continue to play well. Maybe we can slide Powers into the nickel, and let Butler take over the #2. Trouble is Gordy may be able to play the nickel better than Powers!

Hard to tell at this point...

Im putting Davis and Butler on the outside and Powers at the nickel. Powers plays the slot better than he does the outside anyway

He had a solid game. There is still lots of room for improvement, but a solid start for him.

Oh wait, Brady? Is he better then Gabbert. My memory is foggy. haha

Also I pray Vontae Davis is back for the Pats game. I think he has had some success vs. him them at times with the Dolphins right? :dunno:

Well, he and his buddy Sean Smith had 821 yards dropped on them in his last two games against Brady, but then again, that was last year. Still...this Brady guy looks like he means business lol.

I believe it was Mayock who told him it may be his last chance.

I like what I saw today, but we have to keep it in perspective. This was against the Jaguars. One pick from Gabbert, who hasn't exactly shown to be good....or even decent. The other pick was off of a tip drill. Anyone could have gotten that ball, so I don't see it as a big play for him, but more of a big play by Redding to tip the pass in the first place. Anyways, I'm not complaining...I'd love to see more 3 takeaway games from this defense.

I wonder if what Mayock told him before the game got him fired up. He had all three turnovers tonight and now has half our turnovers on the season. If he plays up to his talent he could end up being the cornerback pick up of the season.

This team is playing "games" close to the vest.

But... the O is just ready to go

Let's see if Tommy can keep up?

or if Matt STUfFFORD can.

I like Indy. ...

Lets get it on. Oh, and Mathis will be coming back

Next Week

In my mind, it was only one INT... the other one he didnt really cover anyone, just in the right spot at the right time. He has good hands though. I was really impressed by Gordy though. Vaughn earned a big MEH...again....

Butler did great! as for moving powers after one game of seeing production is pushing it. Many are talking about Gabbert as opposed to Brady throwing that ball. but i look at the matchup more the DB vs the WR. Butler jumped the route seems to be the wr did something earlier to tip the route. so far seems like the only DB willing to try that and he made the play! With much needed time before hitting NE i hope our guys can be healthy enough to play (Vontae, Powers, Mathis etc.)

I do have more confidence to beat Detroit in Detroit than the Pats in NE. That can be done with Stafford being such a streaky QB that he can throw picks as fast as he can throw TDs. However, beating NE is always tops for a Colts fan. :)

Now, after playing the Packers, I believe the Colts may be able to hang on offense with the Pats but still Pats will win something like 34-20 or something like that because our O can be more turnover prone on the road and the Pats' O-line is miles better than the Packers' O-line.

Bills, Titans, Chiefs - 3 more winnable games, unbelievable if we went 9-7 with this scrappy squad. Yep, that is what I will call them, "scrappy squad".

Our secondary coaching should get some credit here.

Really want to see how that Bills squad looks come game day because they are a fast team. wonder how we will handle that speed.

Not really. They were both terrible throws. Gabbert might as well have sent Butler a text before the game telling him that pass was coming.

Not trying to take anything away from Butler. It's a huge deal that he had two picks for us tonight. I'm happy for him, and I don't think he played poorly at all. But the picks were supreme examples of poor quarterbacking.

Hey since our corners had one pick all season (Freeman had the other one) coming into the game I'll take them. Honestly most picks are poor decisions and poor throws by the QB because if it was a good decision and a good throw it wouldn't get picked in the first place. Credit to Butler and the Colts coaches for being aggressive and recognizing that the Jags were not going deep at all. With that said the last one wasn't so much a bad decision as it was a great job of the Colts getting their hands up at the line and doing the tip drill to keep it alive.

it wasnt a terrible throw on the pick 6 by Butler in my opinion, Gabbert should have saw Butler but it still was a great read . Butler made a great play on the ball that Powers likely does not make in my opinion

I bet Luck rushes for more yards then Brady in the game. Take that Tom.

I am starting to wonder if Luck is going to run for more TDs than he throws lol.

That's a joke for the record.

I was impressed with him, but then I look at the team that he was up against and throttle my impression. His real test will be against the Patriots that is if he starts.

I have a feeling that might go the way of Jason David vs. Peyton Manning a few years ago. Brady is going to pick on Butler because he knows his weaknesses from practicing against him and while Butler might get a play or two I am going to side with the QB who is one of the greatest QBs in the history of the NFL going up against a corner who even though he had a good game tonight has a career history of under performing.

Let's see how the pats D deals with a "real" QB next week. I think the pats are semi-complacent. The colts are riding a high the league may never see again.

They dealt with Peyton Manning, who is considered an MVP candidate by many. How much more real can a QB get?

    • Breakdown of Eastern Kentucky EDGE Noah Spence
      2015 Breakdowns:   Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State Emmanuel Ogbah, EDGE, Oklahoma State Mackensie Alexander, CB, Clemson   Size: Spence is 6'2" 254 lbs. Basic size for an edge-rushing OLB. 4-3 teams would probably prefer more length, meaning he'll be more attractive o the 3-4 teams. (4/5)   Athleticism: Spence has great speed around the edge and possess a nice up the field burst. Quick-twitch player able to avoid blocks in traffic and cut-blocks. Good hip and ankle flexibility to give OTs fits on speed rushes. Spence plays with absolutely relentless motor; often being able to make 2nd and 3rd attempts on QBs and runners. Spence lacks elite strength at the point of attack and can get blocked out by bigger offensive-tackles. Speed to power is just above average. Change of direction is good, not great. (7.5/10)   Hand Usage: His hand usage is much better pass rushing than it as on running plays. But not particularly great at either. He doesn't seem to lack hand strength so it's really just something that will have to be coached into him (5/10)   Pass Rush Moves: Doesn't very much. Like most athletic pass rushers he prefers the speed moves around the edge with a little rip every now and then. Can get ran up the field if he doesn't win with his initial move. Really disappointing he got kicked off of Ohio State, because I think another year of development at a real school would have him a lot further along technically then where he is at now. You'd like to see a few counter-moves thrown in as often times OTs over-correct to account for his speed. (6/10)   Run Defense: Not an incredibly strong player who's going to anchor the front for you, but Spence is surprisingly good at reading running plays and picking lanes to fill. That awareness, combined with his relentless effort makes him an already pretty decent run defender. Not the type of player to blow up the whole play, but the type of player who fills lanes which allows other players to make the tackle. (7/10)   Misc. Technical: Noah is a pretty conservative player on read-option/play-action type plays, preferring to stay at home instead of risking the big play from the offense. If we do draft him, his effort will be a breath of fresh air compared to the passive Bjoern Werner. Snap anticipation is average. (3.5/5)   Tackling: Gets low; wraps up. Not much more you could ask for. (5/5)   Versatility: Spence is pretty clearly limited to a rush LB spot in a 3-4 or in a 4-3 over front. Bacially no coverage snaps that I saw. Can play with his hand in the dirt in obvious pass situations, but i don't think any 4-3 teams are going to overthink this one. (2.5/5)   GIFs (gif machine is giving me trouble so sorry for so few):    Strip-sack on a speed rush: https://zippy.gfycat.com/SecondaryHatefulArcticfox.webm   Beats Jack Conklin for a near sack and tackles the runner: https://fat.gfycat.com/UnitedAcceptableAsianconstablebutterfly.webm   Watch his hands on a different angle: https://zippy.gfycat.com/JointFastEastsiberianlaika.webm   Conclusion:    40.5 out of 60 which is a mid-1st round pick.    Spence is an athletic, high-effort player who's probably the highest upside player in the draft. In my opinion, his floor is that of a good pass rusher with a ceiling of Von Miller or Khalil Mack. His inherent risk and limit to the 3-4 teams will likely mean he'll be available at 18 if the Colts want him. I could see Spence becoming a 12 sack a year player in the NFL.   NFL Comparison: Elvis Dumervil, BAL
    • Interesting Article on Peyton
      always said this from above article   analyzed Peytion in his prime Colt years Vs now   Perhaps this is karma, a just reward after a career of — with a few exceptions — being shackled to some of the worst defenses ever to run deep into the playoffs   & his and the running game was less efficient than what Tom Brady, Drew Brees or John Elway was working with.   Manning was very good — if not completely and totally great — in every facet of passing the football.   ( NOW after his decline but with a proper D )    it’s hard not to appreciate the strange symmetry after Manning spent a career elevating middling and worse teams with his brilliance.
    • Bproland's Post Superbowl Mock Offseason
      Yes I agree it's horrible in it's depth but there are a few good centers. I think there's a chance at Jack Allen, Ryan Kelly, or Max Tuerk in the 3rd. Karl Joseph is a strong safety and we have Geathers and Hall is a corner who might go earlier than mid 4th and with snagging a guy in FA a position we are good at. If we are looking at safety I'd rather have Sean Davis in the 3rd or if he falls Deandre Houston-Carson in the 4th. But really though I don't think corner is a big need after grabbing a guy in FA.
