It will be Gordy in the nickel but yes Gordy was great against the Jags.

I'm pretty sure no one will confuse Gabbert with Brady. Gabbert deserved a team ball last week for making our DBs look so good.

Good tackling is good tackling it doesn't matter who threw the ball and Gordy did that last week, 4 solo tackles playing the nickle and one very nice one on a screen.

He would have had to make more tackles if Gabbert could have hit a few more wide open receivers. It's nice that he's a decent tackler, but isn't it better if the DB doesn't have to make a tackle because he defended the pass?

I'm not saying he's horrible, just that I didn't see anything special from him. Our D backfield will have a real test on Sunday. I hope you're saying "I told you so!" on Monday.

and so are theirs

I agree with you. It wouldn't surprise me if the game comes down to who has the ball on the last series. NE D hasn't exactly been stellar either. But when you're putting up as many points as them maybe you don't have to be elite. Or even good.

nope the jags are just that bad

Gordy played a fine game. Blackmon got almost no separation from Gordy all game and that's 1v1, which has nothing to do with how bad the rest of the team/QB is. I was quite impressed.

Lol davis drew lots of pi when he plays to

Yes, he's had 3 PI's and has costed us 29 yards...

Vaughn however...

6 penalties. 60 yards. 1 Holding, 2 Illegal Contact, 2 Pass Interference and 1 Unnecessary Roughness

He leads the team in total number of penalties and yards for penalties.

He just doesn't make smart decisions. That was the point I was trying to make I guess...

blackmon hasn't been able to get seperation from any db this year. gordy had a good game, but i have to look at it in context.

Don't put words in my mouth, or imply that I took a position on how good a DB Gordy is because I didn't. I said Gordy played well in the game against the Jags meaning when he had the opportunity to make a play he did AND THAT'S THE FACT PERIOD. I didn't say he will play great against an elite QB like Brady or express confidence that he will "pass a test on Sunday". Maybe he will play well or maybe he will be burned all day.....so there won't be a need for a told you so. Are you unable to give a player credit when he plays well, cause Gordy played well against the Jags.

And so I'm clear (cause I suspect you'll feel a need to respond) my reaction to Gordy's play in the Jags game was, hey he played pretty well....first time I've seen that....pleasant surprise....hope it's not a one time thing....maybe there's some talent there waiting to get the chance....hope so.

    • Is this a serious comment or a joke?
    •   You should try using Google before posting something like this.  Browns had over $100 Million cap space in March.   Besides, in Madden you can just turn the salary cap OFF.  Boom.  Problem solved. 
    •   Why?      Why should Pagano be gone over an 0-3 start with our top players out?   We're not losing because of Pagano, we're losing because of a lack of talent, especially at key positions like QB.      You're likely going to get what you want, Pagano's last year.    But it may not happen for a few more months.    Then again, you can never tell with a new GM who may decide to make a statement.    
    • I know this isn't the best time for Colts fans.  A SB looks a far way off at the moment.  We are definitely not at the top of the mountain right now, and things are getting a little scrappy in some of the threads.  But I just wanted to thank everyone for their contributions.  Whether you're a new member posting out of frustration with the current situation, or a seasoned vet that has seen this rodeo before and feels the need to defend the Shoe, or some mix of both or all of those (?), I enjoy reading what you have to say (usually).  I may not like all of your opinions (because let's face it, no two people in the world are going to agree about absolutely EVERYTHING) but I respect you for sharing your opinions with all of us.  Let's all just be thankful that we can have this civil discourse as a fanbase.   Even if we lose to the Browns... ()  at home... () ... ... ...   We still have it better than many others, in more ways than one. 
    •  Might not be quite that high but we are looking at just under 73M per Overthecap for 2018, thats not including us rolling over some of the 20M in cap we still have this yr, nor does it factor in any cuts that may happen. Chances are we roll over at least 10M. It also only accounts for a 3M increase in the cap, which isnt official yet (could be more). So 85-90M in cap for this offseason is very well possible.
