    ALL MLB 2018 Astros Repeat ?

    Cubs game time pushed back to 850pm due to Rain Delay. Brewers and Cards are currently 0-0 in the Bottom of the 1st. I would like to see the Cards win 2 of 3, that would give the Brewers 2 more losses and still give us breathing room from the Cards giving them 1 more loss.

    Vegas expects Colts surge

    I take it as a confidence that the new staff will help the offense be more effective, especially late in games. Not necessarily a knock against Pagano, but definitely a knock on the offensive staff. Reich still has a lot to prove. I'm hopeful, but we'll see what he does.

    How would you know this? Serious question not being sarcastic.

    That is good news. Recovery now much shorter/easier.

    Vegas expects Colts surge

    I don't think you'll be proven wrong Monday, or at any point this year. I think the defense will be pretty ragged this season, unless a really good pass rush and a 3 tech emerge. As for the defense in the first preseason game, I disliked some of the alignments. A few times outside corners were 10+ yards off the line of scrimmage, which I hate. I hope we don't see much more of that, especially outside of 3rd and long. But the players in the secondary won't get many chances to make plays unless the front can get stops on early downs and get pressure in passing situations. I don't have a problem with the scheme. It's not my favorite; I'd prefer a man based coverage philosophy, but zone has it's advantages. On the field, it's more effective at defending mobile QBs; for team building, it's less expensive. The key -- as it is with almost everything -- will be good drafting and good player development. Find good players, and help them succeed. If they don't do one or both of those well, it doesn't matter what scheme they run. But I don't think the scheme itself is flawed. It's had plenty of success, even in the modern NFL.

    Stephen Holder leaving the IndyStar

    I’d definitely take Holder over Wells. Wells has gotten better in the past year but not by much...

    It is way too early to judge how any team is going to do with only 1 pre-season and a few practices under their belts. What the coaches are looking at are bubble players and different lineups at this point. We can all have our different opinions but till the season starts we just never know.

    I think most of us are.

    Vegas expects Colts surge

    We should have a difficult time covering based on our youth. The pass rush will be decent maybe. The linebackers tackling and being at the right place should be spotty. And the young receivers should have problems with timing. 2-4 in our division and 5-5 outside is my tops.

    How can anyone not love playing with Luck? Seems like a great teammate and leader. I could watch tape of Luck mic’d up all the time.
  14. Does Adrian Petterson, Tom Brady, Phillip Rivers, Frank Gore, Reggie Wayne, Rob Gronkowski, Joe Thomas, Jeremy Maclin, Von Miller, Darrelle Revis or Eric Berry ring a bell? These are just a few who had knee surgery and returned and most played as well or even better after their surgery. The strides that have been made in that field has improved over the last few years where a knee injuries does not end nor hamper NFL players careers. Getting over the mental issues these players get sometimes is tougher than the physical.

    Perhaps. Regardless, I'm actually cautiously excited for this season

    I understand your point. I was basing my comment on yards allowed, however, I don't think the Colts will rank high in any of those categories -- possibly bottom third in all of those.

    And what does that matter at this point? You said he never benched anyone. jskinnz was correct in what he said about peoples narrative.
  18. Just because Ballard passed on trading Brissett before, doesn’t mean he’ll never trade him. I told other posters who wanted Ballard to trade a Brissett earlier this year that Ballard likely wouldn’t. Why? Because we didn’t know enough about Luck to trade Jacoby this year. Brissett was too valuable. But 6-10 months from now we’ll have a much better idea about Luck and his health. At that point, Ballard will have plenty of money to sign another backup QBs and clear the way to trade Brissett and get a pick or two in return. This maximizes value. Just thinking out loud....

    What constitutes each third? Yards allowed? Points allowed? Turnovers forced? You can give the most yardage up in the league and statistically be the best defense across the rest of the board... so I am just curious.

    I took their comments as a large slam on Pagano's coaching. From a betting standpoint, however, Pagano teams were always consistent. They had some of the most consistent spread covering year after year. So, with that said, it might be Vegas' way of being excited about the unknowns for the Colts for a change, or it might be their way of seriously saying they thought he was really bad, and Reich is a major upgrade, even if he doesn't pan out to what he should do a minimum. I think that's why I found this article so interesting. Trying to see it from a bookkeeping perspective is weird.
  24. Yes I should mention I am joking here lol some take things very serious
  25. Package arrived today!    Listening now, and it sounds great.  Thank you so much!

    Nick Foles MR results (pending)

    I don't think the Eagles Repeat, they could be it's rare anybody does. Pats/Brady haven't Repeated since 2004. Peyton never Repeated either. I think it's Minnesota's year but the Rams look really good if Donald signs. They added Suh and Talib as well. Goff learned alot last year and looks like a Good QB. -Update, Foles has a minor Shoulder Sprain, so that is somewhat good news.
