Ruled out vs Chiefs

Recommended Posts

Also Arians say they will find out nore Wednesday if AQ Shipley can play or not Sunday. If he can't go McGlynn will play center, which most likely means the one and only Seth Olsen will find himself back in the starting lineup

Change the game plan. Use runs and short passes to limit the amount of time the OL has to sustain pass protection and then go play action for a few long shots. But then we have a stubborn Offensive Coordinator/Head Coach who refuses to recognize talent differential between our offensive linemen and all pro defensive linemen and line backers.

My new Sunday afternoon game plan - pray for Andrew Luck's ability to survive without getting hurt.

He's still available.  Wasn't his mobility an issue?  I know at one time he basically ate himself out of a job.

CC?  Wasn't he in charge of the offense during the offensive debacle of 2011?  No thank you on that one.

 

Honestly, I don't mind Arian's planning, but I think Luck has to learn to go quicker to the check down, especially with his porous OL.  More checking down will open up the longer vertical game.  Luck has to do a better job of that and improve his accuracy.

Can someone tell me please what happened to Shipley?      All I've read is that the injury happened in the final seconds of the game. 

 

Leg?    Arm?    Something else?     Did it look terrible?     Your thoughts please!

Not really, Jim Caldwell wanted to keep the offense the same just like it was with manning and he overruled CC(because CC knew Painter couldn't handle that whole offense) so he had to respect his wishes as a result Caldwell sunk with the ship. Caldwell admitted that after the season and that he should had handled that situation differently

Haven't heard anything on him, but he was limping pretty bad coming off the field after it happened. Don't know if it was a knee, ankle, or what it was.

How do we know it was Caldwell that wanted to keep the offense the same? Polian was the one that brought Collins in to run Mannings offense, How do we know Christianson. Just wondering when Caldwell admitted this. I never saw that interview

Probably was polian overriding them all. It was a long time ago but I remember reading that somewhere over the offseason

Funny part is, the Steelers wanted to get back to steeler football with running the football and more 50/50 run pass. Yet the colts with Arians are running more and more efficiently than the Steelers and Big Ben is still dropping back 40 times a game

Any news on Shipley?
@pwilson24: IMO, fact #Colts didn't add O-lineman to roster Tuesday suggests Justice and/or Shipley will be able to play Sunday. But we'll see.

@pwilson24: #Colts' B.A. says Satele, Conner, Carter are out. Guys hurt at Houston Sunday are all questionable.

BA has been changing the game plan Check downs are on every play. Routes are shorter.  But, it's not working because their D doesn't play 8 yards off the ball and dropping back in cover. They up and in the face of every receiver.  They know that only have to cover the receiver like a blanket for 3 seconds or so , and our O protection has broken down.  So forget nobody being open downfield, they're not getting separation even in the short patterns.  What we need is an effective running game, then see what opens up for the receivers, either short or downfield, and take advantage.

Well, back then the Steeler fans wanted him gone, as well as the Steeler FO.  Big Ben was never on board, though. In fact, Big Ben continues to this to throw out veiled hints how much he dislikes T. Haley's offensive scheme and play calling. Not sure about the feelings of their fans now, though.

It's now being reported that Zbikowski has been upgraded to questionable for Sunday's game.

    •   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. 
    • Well he entrusted his career from '98 to '01 with Jim Mora, so you tell me?
    •   This makes Chuck's pressers unbearable for me sometimes.    It's literally, uhm, every second, uhm, word that comes, uhm, out.
    • I think Al Woods is more important to us, and is more value, but the tandem (and Anderson to an extent) have been a major upgrade.  I keep forgetting Hankins is only 25 as well and so a good piece to build around.   Ballard said from day one that games are won in the trenches and he has made our defensive side a strong unit......now for the other side!
    • Ok. Defense first. Hankins. Love the signing. He’s playing really good, maybe outta position but he’s playing well and woooo !!! Al Woods was a find from heck !!!!! Like I say. We’re on our way. Smart signings like John Simon. Big signing/big name signings like Sheard and Hankins. Then I’ve like Hunt as a rotational DE honestly. He’s better than a Billy Will or even RJF even IMO. But we added some young, up and coming players who were just and are just hitting their stride and putting it all together. Ala Simon and Woods. We may have our NT and a key OLB if not started for the next 4 years. Just wish we keep on this offseason. Hooker should be back by week 4-5 next year anyways and he’s gonna come in with a vengeance. He’ll be a top 5 FS. Top 10 overall safety in the games he plays next year IMO. Then Wilson is showing promise when he plays and oh baby so is Hairston. That’s 2 of our top 4 next year at CB with Melvin and whoever we sign. Let Davis go btw !!!! Basham is NOT A BUST. Hes really raw. He may take til his 4th year to break out. But if we get a beast like Key, Landry, etc this offseason. It’ll give him another year to continue to work and develop. Look at Simon. Or even a highly touted kid like Nick Perry. It took 4-5 years for them. Happens all the time. Called ascending players. But with a truly dominant edge rusher to pair with Simon and Sheard. And 2 ILB’s with. Or at least one having top notch cover skills. Out front 7 is stacked and the secondary will work itself out with 1 signing of a top CB.    And honestly. I mean. We may only. On D !!! Be a top tier edge rusher and 2 good ILB’s away from a top 10 D. As crazy as it sounds. Like I said. Hooker, Wilson, Hairston in their 2nd years. Anderson in his 4th should be interesting. But yeah man. We bring in a superstar pass rusher in the top 5-10 of the draft (Key) A 12-16 sack monster. Then a really good ILB RD2. And as we all know you can find ALL PRO caliber ILB’s from RD’s 2-4. I mean you can find a handful of really good, Day 1 starting ILB’s. I’d like to see us have 1 rookie OLB starting and 2 rookie ILB’s next season. Hey ! Playing at a high level it don’t matter. Let em come in be Garrett, Beckwith, and Cunningham. That’d turn out D around NOW ! But. Let’s see. 2-4. Hicks, Kendricks, Wagner, David, then again. Cunningham and Beckwith this year !!!! but we can sign a ILB like Bowman maybe ? Or a younger cat whose still in the middle of his prime. They’ll be 4-5 good options. (Hadn’t looked at FA List yet lol)    Offense. We got Luck who’ll be FINALLY 100% next season. No holds barred. And he WILL be behind a stout OL. We’ll probably make a BIG splash in FA and bring in a G like Justin Pugh or whoever else. Maybe bring Mewhort back for a year to play RT ???? I mean we’ve screwed around enough. We need to sign the 2 best offensive linemen available no matter the cost. Or if we draft an ILB. Draft a G in RD 2-3. Bottom line is we can’t wait to have a good line when 12 is back next season. We got our man in Mack. Just need a complement to him. A bigger, more physical back. But Mack is our feature back of the future. Don’t mention the dropped passes. You all have seen what he can do in the run AND passing game. He’ll give 12 yet another weapon. Then Doyle, Swoope, whoever else ? Daniels ? Williams ? I’d say we draft a TE in the mid rounds. A faster, more athletic type to complement Doyle. But back to the point. IMO. IMO. Lol after we fix the OL with 2 studs, 2 stud ILB’s, and a brute Edge rusher (most important) we gotta bring in a big time WR like an Alshon Jeffery or Allen Robinson (1year) or both and let crief walk. We’d have Haeg, Good, a backup Center. RD6 ? Then either Clark or bring Mewhort back on a punk 1 year, get your butt out there and ball contract. Play him at RT baring a TRUE breakout by Haeg/Clark/Good.    Comes down to us having 90 mill or around 90 to spend. That’s 3 superstars and 3-5 solid backups, plus a bunch left probably. Idk. Just know a lot of money = Fun new toys !!!! Then couple that with the draft in which we’ll be having HIGH picks. Probably top 5-8ish in each RD. Basically 2 first RD picks with the high 2nd. Then Ballard has shown he can find talent like Mack and Hairston. SO FAR. Don’t know about Stewart yet. But yeah. Then add on top a handful of young players having a full or another full year under their belt. Anderson will probably be a superstar next year in year 4. Hooker will come back like a mad man. Melvin is a 4th year guy. Guess he’s one of those late bloomers I was talking about. Didn’t do crap first 3 years. Then sets the world on fire. Let’s kust hope he keeps it up. Cause he gives us a young 6’2 star CB. But Wilson and Hairston should be our 3-4 CB’s. If not 2-3. But IMO we can do all this.....This coming offseason. It’s simple and easy. We got money, high draft picks, and a franchise QB, plus some nice young up and coming players. But with 3-4 major FA signings, and hitting big on 3-4 draft picks. And I mean a ROY caliber player and a couple other day 1 star caliber starters. So. 1 Boss Edge rusher, 2 ILB’s with ( at least 1 with top notch coverage skills). 1 CB, 2 Offensive linemen, and a WR. That’s 7 big holes to fill. Big names like Jeffery or Robinson WILL hit the market. Justin Pugh may. Idk. Tru Johnson and Breeland are 2 CB’s but id have to read the list of FA’s. I’d like to see us grab Jeffery, Pugh, a stud, pro bowl type ILB,  and a top tier CB on free agency. 4 major signings. Then draft Arden Key, 2 boss ILB’s back to back, then RB, another Edge rusher, and a TE in RD’s 4-6. And Screw starting 3 rookie LB’s btw. Who cares ??? It’d be 100%. Perfectly fine as long as they ball. But we have losers like Jon Bostic who needs to be in Canada. And then Morrison should Be having to fight it out with Walker, George, Jackson, and maybe a cheap vet FA and an UDFA to see who wins the 2 backup ILB spots. Or 3. Need to sign a decent vet who comes from a winning team to be 1 backup. But yeah. Bottom line. Morrison should be on the bubble. Bottom line AGAIN. LAST TIME LOL. So. With the right signings, good draft, players developing.....We can compete for at least an AFC championship NEXT YEAR !!!!! Makes no sense as to why we wouldn’t be at least a 11-5 - 10-6 team next year. With just 7-8 holes to fill and the resources we have to do it. Let’s make it happen !!!!!
