As much as I love Football I honestly hate pre-season. The games don't count, you have players getting injured at times, etc.. Now Mewhort is injured!!

Shocker. Rip off our biggest run in years, and it's called back. 

We used to be one of the most disciplined teams regarding penalties but last season we killed ourselves with them. Chuck needs to get that straightened out.

Harrison is in at center now - looks solid so far with Good and Clark next to him.  But if Mewhort is out, why not try Harrison at guard next to Kelly to try a different combination in case Mewhort is out for any length of time?

I agree - maybe by the halfway point of the season.  He has blown a TE coverage in the game, but so have all of the LB core.  He did cover a nice 3rd and short pass play very well this last possession and kept the receiver short of the marker.  He also made a very nice physical tackle on a RB in a 1 on 1 situation on a swing pass.

I know we have always stunk in the pre-season and we are missing a lot of key players on defense so tonight isn't a huge surprise. I wish we could cut down on the penalties and prorect Andrew better but overall Andrew looked sharp and he's healthy, TY, Moncrief, and Gore are healthy as well. Robert Mathis will be ready come opening day too. Tell em Reggie!

I think we get screwed by the refs on some of those Also we are getting our butts kicked by a team that isn't good no pass rush at all we will be lucky to win a game with no pass rush like this.

Wow. 

 

I usually don't take much stock into preseason. 

 

I just don't see much on this team outside a QB. And sure we can blame injuries. But that is the team on the field.

And Pagano's plan was to run the ball, stop the run, protect number 12 and avoid making penalties. None were accomplished. In fact, he had a foolish penalty called on himself for coming onto the field. Even all of our usually reliable special teamers (Overton, McAfee and Vinatieri) each had a mess up. Yikes. Not what I was expecting!

    • Encouraged by the weight loss to Goode, Banner, and Stewart.   Surprised by the gain to Morrison and Walker...though both are only 22 and 21 respectively and have yet to enter their primes so it could just be them filling out.    
    • To channel my inner Herm...   "You play to win the game!"
    • it's kind of a win win though if we do have a bad season I won't be too upset and if we have a great season then that's awesome. unless we keep our coach and get like a late 20s pick cuz I mean we'd still get value but not as much maybe as a top 10 pick obviously. it's not as simple as just want a good season not this year. even though I always want the Colts to kick butt
    •   Denver won a superbowl with Brock Osweiler (plus a living corpse Manning). Osweiler (and Siemian both) looked a lot better under Kubiak's hand than any QB under O'Brians hand since he left Boston. Not to mention, O'Brian replaced Fitzpatrick with Hoyer, who was worse than his predecessor, then replaced Hoyer with Osweiler who also was worse than his predecessor. Imo, O'Brian couldn't install a system for his lesser talented QB's, which would've helped them use their strengths.   On the other hand, Pagano is a secondary coach. Let's see what he has done there? The Colts (Grigson) didn't draft a single player in the secondary in the first 3 years. Of the free agent additions: Davis become a first team all pro. Mike Adams made the pro bowl multiple times and played his best football over age 30 in Indy. Dwight Lowery had a decent year here, one of his best. Greg Toler wasn't good, but he played his best football in Indy. The Laron Landry project failed, but it failed more due to not being able to stay healthy, than production. (I didn't particularly like him though, but I can't say he was terrible when healthy.) Darius Butler become a decent player, having his best years of his carreer in Indy. Then, when the Colts finally decided to draft in the secondary: D'Joun Smith turned out to be a bust. Health issues again. Geathers became a fine player - sadly, health issues there again.  For T.J. Green, Hooker and Wilson the jury is still out. And they found Rashan Melvin off the streets. This is not bad at all. Most players, who stayed healthy, played their best in Indy. Of course talent matters. You can't make pro-bowlers out of journeymen.     Pagano's record is 15-7 at home and 13-14 on the road against coaches ahead of him. That's not a bad record considering that coaches ahead of him usually have better rosters under their control. (The numbers might be off by one or two here or there, due to coaching changes, etc. I might counted - or not counted - a game played against a previous coach. I also counted games against Harbaugh and Kubiak supposing they'd be in top10 being active. Anyway the true record must be close to the above.).   All in all, I think Pagano is right there where he belongs to after 3 winning plus 2 down seasons. Middle of the pack. But ..... I think, based on "potential", he is better than his current value. He is a top10 coach on my list.   I know many of you guys strongly disagree, but that's my honest opinion. There are better coaches in the NFL than him. But not many. So I really wish Pagano will prove himself in 2017. Aaand, if he fails and will be fired, then I cross my fingers that there will be at least one guy available of those "not many". (Yes, despite my belief that he is a fine coach, I agree that he has to go if he fails to prove himself. Because that's the right decision. But honestly, I'll be scared if that happens. It won't be easy to find a better guy. And there is always a chance to be ChipKelly-d....)  
    • Banner was up to 260Lbs He was at 253lbs for the combine with a goal of 245lbs. I thought that's what I read.  Walker adding 7 so he's back up over 240.    Wilson at 207lbs jumps out to me. We heard about "football shape" for him. He was 211lbs at the combine. You'd think him being in better shape would make him a blink quicker. If he's a little faster we may not get him. I'm excited to see this kid with Hooker on the back end. If we can get Geathers back we could have something.
