Colts @ Bengals Preseason Game Night Thread

I like this Morris kid.

I like him too but the Colts have pretty much said that Tolzien is their back up and the fact that he didn't play much tonight tells me they weren't having them compete for the job.  Also, as I have said before who you play against in the pre-season maters and holding your own against other teams backups will impress the coaches more than owning guys who will be out of football tomorrow.  Also, it would take more than Morris playing great to win that job, Tolzien would have had to lost it and Tolzien didn't do anything to hurt himself tonight. 

 

The question is will the Colts keep two or three QBs?  Morris has made a major case that they should keep three but will all the injuries allow it?

That was a good Int by Milton but I think the pressure from the right side by Bates that caused the QB to hurry that throw just a bit and caused a bad throw. Still nice to see Milton make a play

So are we back to being postseason contenders since we won tonight?

If we can play the Bengals backups every week I like our chances...

I like both of our back up QBs.  Morris seems so cool under pressure, but they both have their strong points.  Do we keep both? I kind of hope we do.

That was fun to watch. I thought our Defense played physical all night. AJ McCarron didn't do anything against us and he played good last season for Cincy. Morris has nice poise in the pocket.

Does it make sense to put a QB on the practice squad? 

 

Did you hear the announcers say that being on the practice squad 16 weeks...pays $107,000?

tough decision, I mean, Morris did score the only touchdown, no? Tolzien did look good as well, nothing he can do about fumbles.

I'd consider starting Morrison next to Jackson because Morrison brings his physically tough hard hitting style to the game. He will have his struggles in coverage but all of our ILB's will

That would be a great living if you could make the practice squad for teams off and on for 10 years or so.

No Chapman tonight I guess. Edwards coming in for the save.

Great preseason finale game and  by our Indianapolis Colts!  :thmup:  Our Colts was able to achieve finishing and concluding their 2016 NFL Preseason Schedule at 2 wins, 2 losses, and 1 tie (if you want to include the cancelled Pro Football Hall Of Fame Game with the Packers).  Stephen Morris' 25-yard touchdown pass to Tevan Smith with over a minuite left in the fourth quarter, made the Colts come behind to defeat the host Cincinnati Bengals 13-10 at Paul Brown Stadium. Morris and Scott Tolzien combined for 31 of 42 passes completed, for 305 passing yards, over the 1-3 Bengals.

 

Now comes the real schedule beginning in 10 days, as the Colts host the visiting Detroit Lions in both teams opening week matchup on September 11, the 15th year anniversary that forever changed America.

 

Hope the braintrust  of Chuck Pagano and the Colts coaching staff, General Manager Ryan Grigson, and the Colts scouting and support staff, in earnest, evaluate and decide with much difficulty, the 22 players, the coaching  and player personnel  staff make the cut down to the 53-man regular season roster that will represent the 2016 Indianapolis Colts.

 

Colts may likely sign between the 7 to 10 players that will make up the team's practice squad.

 

We wish the Colts in selected the best and talent players that will start to endure the 16-game regular season beginning September 11, and try to improve from their 8-8 record in 2015, and recapture the AFC South Division Title in 2016!   

 

See you here when the Colts host the Detroit Lions in their season opener at LOS, and GO COLTS!!!!!  :coltslogo:   :)   :1colts:  :colts:  :coltshelmet:   :coltshorse:   :coltslogo:

    • Ok Princeton tiger thought about yep whole coaching staff needs to go tomorrow.
    • Give me Jim Mora, playoff Marty Schttenheimer, and close game Mike McCarthy calling plays over whoever is calling the for the Falcons.
    •  Ballard has been talking to JB about McDaniels.  "According to the Boston Globe's Ben Volin, Ballard has been picking Jacoby Brissett's brain about his offensive coordinator in New England, Josh McDaniels."
    •   That's it, plain and simple. This roster isn't good because we haven't drafted well. And honestly, you can go back several drafts into the final years of Polian and see that this has been going on for a long time. It's mostly been masked by really good QB play. I gave Chuck and Co credit for keeping it together in 2015 when Luck was out, but they haven't done anything close to that so far this season.    Which brings me to the other issue, and that's the coaching staff. I'm really irritated with what's going on and what's been going on, but I'm not overwhelmed with frustration or anger because I fully expect a new coaching staff in 2018. Ballard seems to be the real deal -- almost everything I've disagreed with him on, he's been proven right. And I assume he'll hire a really good coaching staff. And of course, Luck should be 100%. I think things will be better moving forward, but there's no denying this year's group is basically stuck in the mud.
    • I’d consider Jim Bob Cooter (OC for the lions). He has been a huge factor in Stafford’s improved play the past few years. Prior to Cooter being promoted, Stafford was playing so poorly Caldwell actually benched him. Cooter came in and emphasized a short , quick passing game with occasional shots and it has worked wonders for the Lions offense. I am not a huge fan of Golden Tate (good yak ability but not a number 1 wr) or Marvin Jones so it is impressive to me.
