During a timeout..I think it was Reitz...talking to the Jax lineman and they were all smiling

..and chatting....talking about the weather or the cheerleaders or something..

Glad you brought this up mark. I was thinking the same last night. The team a lot of times seemed to be having FUN. I love it!!!

Oh you mean chatting WITH the Jags? Hmmm......not sure I noticed this as much. I was thinking more the Colts in general having fun.

Gabbert didn't look too happy. ;) And at times I think Luck looked like he needed a good nights sleep.

My favorite part was when Luck pushed the lineman back that were coming to protect him when he got hit on the slide.

Also I think it was the center on the TV that was talking.

You're right, too J....

Reggie was having a good old time out there...and even when the Jax guy cheap-shotted Andrew in the 4th quarter...he came over to shake his hand later..

It was a 'sweet' game :shake:

Jacksonville defender that hit Luck when going out of bounds: "Hey man, sorry about that. We cool dawg?"

Luck: "Hit me harder next time,*****."

Seemed like a very cordial game between the lineman.

I half expected them at halftime to sit in the middle of the field and break out some Coors Light and have a BBQ.

It was a cordial game, mainly because it wasn't as much of a game-- it was a "scrimmage." At least that's what it looked like since the Jags didn't put up much of a fight.

Some like it, some don't. I remember watching one of the NFL Top Tens they have on NFL Network and I think it was Top Ten Things We Miss and one of them was bitter rivalries. The argument some made was that in today's game, the guys are opponents, but always friends. You see them chatting during timeouts and they are friends off the field. In the older days, the guys were opponents on the field, but still didn't like each other off the field.

But then comes the issue of being too friendly. I remember a few years ago, the Eagles had a playoff game and they lost. After the game, the Eagles' players were jumping around and laughing and joking around with the opposing team's players (I forget who it was). Some people really didn't like it because it looked like the Eagles didn't care that they had lost.

    • Romo plays unless he's hurt.  You don't displace a successful regular season quarterback with a promising pre-season one.   However the Cowboys could try and take that pre-season promise and see if a team will send out some high round picks for him.   Or they could try and make him their QB of the future.  
    • By extend drives, I mean convert third downs. If I have to choose between a quick TD drive and a long FG drive, I'll take the quick 7 points almost every time (save for a four minute situation where the FG basically ices it).    And I agree, getting off to a fast start is critical. Pagano seems to mention that every time he talks, because when this team has had slumps over the past three years, it's been because they start slowly and are down 2+ score in the second quarter. 
    • I'm not saying he can.  Although honestly I think Rex Ryan's teams have terrible discipline on the field.  That might extend to off the field as well.    I'm saying that perhaps being cut might get the guy to take football more seriously.   It's just out and out stupid.  We give people who commit terrible crimes a 2nd chance in the NFL.  Shoot sometimes 3rd, 4th and 5th chances.  I mean look at Greg Hardy.  Karlos Williams gained 20 pounds, he didn't beat a woman within an inch of her life like Greg Hardy did.     But the dude is 20 pounds overweight and the whole NFL world is suppose to just decide. . . eh he's done, nothing we can do here.  No thought to bringing him in and saying "Hey we have this contract but you can be cut without costing us a dime, so here is the rub. . . you show progress and you loose some weight by the time your suspension is over or your chance here is done.     Eddie Lacy got fat, his coach told him to lose some weight and he lost some weight.  
    • I like this.  I may have to watch more NFL Network now.  I think Reggie is a pretty intelligent guy, so I look forward to his analysis
