Butler

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

Mayock mentioned it ON AIR a couple of times...

Guess Dude needed that smack in the opper.

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.

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

That is impressive even if it was against Gabbert & Henne

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?

    • The reason they both look tired by 3rd quarter is because they are on the field way too much throughout the game.
    • They just tied the record for the second most sacks given up in the entire history of the Colts and folks, that goes back a long way. They can't see their feet much less a light at the end of the tunnel. A good coach solves problems like many teams have done this season. The Colts get worse and that means either the staff is incompetent or they simply don't give a rats rear. Pagano's post game press conference after the disaster at home with the Jags showed he does not care. He was sarcastic and avoided every question insulting the reporters just doing their jobs. When you get hammered at home you have only one thing left to do and that is make n attempt to be respectful of the reporters who will turn and tell the fans what you said and how you said it. Ignorant Brissett said "Is there a problem with this team"? Yes there is smart guy and you a part of it. Hilton hammers the OL in public. All signs point to Pagano's lack of authority over his players. He want to be daddy and Santa Clause to football players. That has never worked at any level. 
    • We can probably even argue the more power he's been given and the freer he's been during his tenure the more his weaknesses have shined and overtaken the performance of the team. In a weird twisted kind of way Grigson might have been a balance to the buddy-buddy relationship between Pagano and the players. Right now wheels are falling off both on the field and off the field(players blaming whole position groups for the  failings of the team in front of sensation-hungry journalists, etc). I previously thought Pagano was an OK coach who simply not good enough to go against the best of the best. Right now I'm revising my view and leaning more and more toward the conclusion that he's not even as good as I used to give him credit for. From preparation to personnel decisions, to game management to player development... where is he even remotely successful? I don't see it. To me this looks like a total and complete failure on all fronts by Pagano. 
    • They do get paid to guess.    They are drafting potential.    His picks didn't live up to their potential.    He got fired.    It's a very common story
    •   Actually according to overthecap.com we’ve got the most cap space for 2018. That, combined with a healthy Luck, a top 5 draft pick, Chris Ballard, a good nucleus of players, an impending coaching staff change from top to bottom (hopefully), and an aging/retiring older generation of QBs that have dominated the AFC, I believe the future is bright in Indy.
