  1. Past hour
  2. I agree. As long as it was just spot duty, I agree JB should be the back up to get us through a short term Rivers injury. If however Rivers went down for the season early, I'd prefer to see what the young guys have to offer for the future.
  3. Today
  4. I've seen mentions of Campbell in several articles. One was on second year breakout players on O. Let's face it though, most attention will be on Pittman as a rook, and TY as the aging #1 trying to rebound from injury. I'd say more folks are talking about him than Pascal, who was our #1 last year in terms of yards. I fully expect Campbell to perform well this year if he's healthy, as I also expect TY and Pittman to do well. If I had to name a WR that I think will surprise, or outperform expectation, I'd pick either Dulin or Fountain.
  5. That data in the tweet above is surface level at best, and lacks context. Take a look at the game breakdown above. It has more to do with playing 2 top five passing teams than anything else. Winston and Brees are two top 10 QBs (#s). And having zero offense for a few of those losses also added to the stress on our D. It also doesn't account for other injured DBs during those weeks. IIRC, Willis, Desir, Wilson, Hooker, Geathers, and Rock all missed time or were banged up during that late stretch.
  6. I mean umps seem to just have quick fuses it seems. I mean he was walking away from him too and seemed more annoyed at himself. You see what Ross said during the game about it
  7. Here's several. At WR... 1. With the addition of Pittman, will we see Pascal running more out of the slot? 2. Who's the most likely to be the heir apparent to TY, and the #2 Z WR this year? Campbell, Fountain, or another? 3. Assuming we keep 6 WRs on the roster, what's your prediction? My way-to-early guess is TY, Pittman, Campbell, Pascal, Fountain, and Dulin. STs 1. Hines and Dulin looked great last year when returning, are they the two early favorites? Is Rodgers in the running? TE 1. Is this the year we see MAC break out? 2. Now that we have Pittman and Patmon, will that increased size at WR decrease 2 TE sets, and/or the utilization of TE in general? DL 1. Will Autry end up being an every-down "flex" player, lining up at DT on passing downs, and DE on running downs? 2. Will we see more blitzing this year? Our pressure %s last year were pretty disappointing. I know Buckner will improve that number by just being on the field, but would love to see more blitzing combined with more man coverage. 3. What's your way too early prediction for DL line ups? My guess is Passing downs - Houston-Autry-Buckner-Turay Running downs - Houston-Buckner-Stewart OR Day-Autry 4. When Turay was drafted, many saw him as better run stopper than rush DE. Did the experts totally have it wrong, or is he just a late bloomer vs the pass. And... will he become that every down DE this year? 5. Did Banogu train this off season with anyone to hone his rush skills, like Turay has done in the past? LB 1. With the addition of Glasgow, who many see as more of a STs add, do you see a 3 man competition for 2 spots with Glasgow, Zaire, and Franklin? 2. With Oke taking over starting SAM later in the year in 2019, do you think we'll see less Nickel and more 3 LB sets to keep Leonard, Walker, and Oke on the field? DB 1. Flus hinted that we'd see more "man" last year, but aside from the KC game (who's passing game was a bit crippled due to injury) it seemed like we were running mostly a soft C2. With the addition of Buckner, and assumed improved pass rush, will we see more man coverage? 2. Where do you project Blackmon once he returns to form? We've heard a lot of FS talk, but I see him more as a well rounded SS in our C2 defense. He comes from a "man" system, struggled at CB (before the conversion), and also struggled at FS when asked to "roam". He was a beast though tackling (that first hit vs Oregon - oh my), and covering closer to the LOS. I think he's got a higher upside than Willis at SS, but not sold on the FS talk. 3. How do the coaches view Rodgers, especially his build (HT/WT). Dynamic player, but very slight build. Do they have him on any specific S&C program to help add some good weight? I'd love to him get a shot at returns, but I'd also like to see his athleticism translate as a DB.
  8. Mets are 9-11 and only 3 games out of 1st place. Every team has played a huge amount of games except for the Cards.
  9. Ha, I was just thinking the same thing. That would be a great number for the Colts this season... The CUBS are blowing me away so far! Loving It
  10. Congrats, Cubs fans. Your team looks great. Have the Mets won 5 games yet? Lol. I believe they won today. This young pitcher Peterson should have a 4-0 record. He has pitched well. He is 3-1.
  11. Now if the Colts go 13-3 that would be the daily double . Cubs are a machine right now and look hungry again. Joe Buck just said the Cubs look unbeatable.
  12. 13-3 now on the season, Cubs win 4-2 over the Brewers. Another one Bites the Dust. Fly the flag Hozer. This division is already over with a only a 60 game season. . Brewers fall to 7-10
  13. Another question, how is JB taking it being the backup QB again after given the keys last year? He seems like a great locker room guy and a great leader but that has to be tough for any QB to handle.
  14. Everytime I think about parris Campbell, my first thought is I still can't believe we picked him over DK Metcalf.
  15. Rock and Willis both a showed a lot of upside as a rookies last year, Carrie is a solid vet with inside/outside versatility at corner, and now Wilson a 13 game starter last season was added. Rhodes returning to form would be a nice bonus and then rookies in Rodgers,Blackmon and Rutledge whom may or may not pan out. If the D line creates constant pressure it will make their jobs easier for sure and that is the biggest key i.m.o.
  16. I think Jim Irsay is the best owner in football. I love him but Bob Sanders belongs in the ring of honor, JMO. What is taking so long?
  17. Damn I was hoping Yu would pitch a no hitter. He gave up a HR but has a 1 hitter through 7. 4-1 Cubs to the bottom of the 7th.
  18. Hi Andrew! Thanks for reaching out to all of us! My question: How is Xavier Rhodes looking in the Colt’s defensive schemes? How is his leadership in the locker room as the elder statesmen with the young guns?
  19. Cubs lead 4-0 to the 7th. We are simply the best team in baseball right now. Yankees, Dodgers, Cards, and Brewers fans just have to deal with it and we have no player positive tests either. Without cheating the Astros stink so far at 8-10 just like I thought.
  20. Every team has played a decent amount of games except the Cards. The Cards won't stop the season IMO. 1 team won't stop it. If it was like 5 teams having a lot of positives tests that would be different. Just too much money involved if only 1 or 2 teams are having this problem to stop the season. I am not sure what is going in St Louis but they need to get their crap together. Even the Marlins have now played 12 games and playing well. I see the season finishing after what I have been hearing from ESPN and the MLB channel. Last night at work a Cards fan said they just need to cancel the season. I , I said yeah your team looks like they are trying to get it shut down and the Cubs are 12-3. Won't happen sorry, unless there are like 5 teams with a lot of positives tests.
  21. How concerned are the Colts' decision makers, and the NFL's as a whole, about the possibility of players developing present and future heart ailments like Myocarditis from the Corona virus, like the B1G obviously was in canceling its season?
  22. We have some many question marks in the secondary. Besides Moore who do we have? Malik Hooker has to stay healthy this season. When healthy he took away the deep ball. He was rushed back after the knee scoop. I expect him to move a lot faster this season. Blackmon when will he be ready to play. Do we play him at CB or FS?
  23. They be looking at 2019 tapes for players who won’t have a 2020 season. It’s shame because some players could’ve made a huge leap. That leap could’ve had some guys skyrocket up draft boards. Can some of the players transfer to play this season is the question I have.
  24. Yu no hitter through 5 innings. He just threw 97. This is 2012 Yu, great stuff. 2-0 Cubs to the bottom of the 5th. Watching this it sounds like fans in the stands even. Baseball may actually finish this season from what I have been hearing from ESPN and the MLB network.
