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..

I dont have a comment..I've just never seen that during a game

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.

    • There is a simple gameplan to beat the Jags, may or may not work but, run the ball on them because their pass D is ridiculously good.  Put 8 or 9 in the box and force Bortles to beat you.  Easier said then done but the book is out on them.  
    •   My only two cents was the fact that ASJ back was to this particular ref who was actually looking more at the goal line.  Either way, his view of ASJ rolling over was blocked somewhat.    As for the overturn, i hear you, it comes down to a judgement call on the movement and was it enough to show loss of control over the movement of the ball.   I am fine with not overturning the call.  
    • Yeah that can ruin a season. Rodgers is the best in the buz IMO
    • Wondering ;  Could the acquiring team agree to eat all or part of the dead cap as part of the trade?  If they have the space I don't see why not.  It's not like they have to resign Luck. 
    • This particular game may be the easiest one left on the schedule, so a win should be likely. However, the Jags are a better matchup against us than most people realize. Their defense is 100% legit now, it will make life very difficult for Brissett, he may not throw any tds Sunday. If we use Gore and Mack very effectively, use a 50/50 split along with passes sprinkled in, we can move the ball on the Jags. However, this will have to be done with laser like precision, which I don't trust the coaching staff to do. Fournette and Ivory will do well in the running and pass game, Bortles will look better than he really is, and the Jags will hold our offense to around 14 points IMO.   Jags 24 Colts 14
