  1. Man Henry’s stamina and durability is insane.

  2. Well I was at the game and yes it was very wet and at times windy. 1. The o-line is finally starting to gel. Wentz was hardly moved off his spot and even when he was, he was able to move up the pocket or take off. 2. The offense is starting to form an identity. Taylor is finally getting the bulk of work which makes the RPOs and PA that much more effective. 3. Leonard is a monster. It really is so much different watching him make plays up close. It's so fast and the accuracy to punch the ball out is insane. 4. Pass rush still needs work. At times, Jimmy G was just chilling back there like the Deebo TD and it really is annoying to see our secondary get torched because we can't get the QB even uncomfortable let alone pressured. 5. Misdirection is still an issue. Every time Jimmy G rolled out, it was completed for like 10+ yards. That's not good especially when that's basically all Tannerhill does.

  4. Not at all. Simply extrapolating the stats. Henry is a different RB and easily in contention for MVP. However, efficiency can be just as important as volume. Based on the sample sizes we have, JT has been just as effective if not more so.

  6. That is the kind of QB I want, no more Mr nice guy, I want to win and you have to have that kind of mentality to win. You can't be soft or nice because opponents pick up on that. Wentz is twice the QB Hurts is, I got news for Philly. Come Sunday Wentz is going to get his signature win as a Colt and then we will see how the season plays out. Wentz still has a lot of to prove but he starting to remind more of Luck with each game but he has a edge Luck didn't have, Luck was always a nice guy. Sometimes you have to tell like it is. I am learning that in life as I get older.

  7. I think he's just trying to be humble and give his skill guys the credit.... But... Philly fans can take it however they want. It's Philly's front office fault that his leading WR last year wasn't even on the roster to start the year, and didn't find a home at all this year.

  8. That's fair, but the way I see it Rivers is like a minivan. Durable, reliable, and gets you from point A to point B. Unfortunately, its also slow and boring. Wentz is a sports car. Fast, flashy, attractive, but can get you in trouble if you're not careful. So it really comes down what you're comfortable with in terms of style of play.

  9. I was drenched by half time even with a heavy duty rain poncho and 3 layers of clothes. It wasn’t a hurricane type experience but it pretty much sucked. Stadium seats weren’t even half full. Lots of Colts fans in my section so that was fun. Thank goodness for a win to take some of the suck away.

  11. 400 carries in the long term death knell for RB's. If you want to enjoy JT for while...lighten up on the demand for his carries.

  12. Well, according to some of the extremely mature folks at Titans Report, we might as well not show up. The stronger the cuss word, the more meaning it has!

  13. I don' think anyone is saying Taylor >= Henry. But this is impressive and I am thrilled with this running production. We have an effective running game and that just helps Wentz and the passing game to be better.

  15. He should’ve replaced Vinny. Vinny was done by that point. We kept him because of who he was, not because of how he was performing. Huge, costly mistake by Ballard.

  16. Good offensive team, bad defense. Wilson and Josh Allen had no problems blessing the scoreboard on Tenn. KC isnt playing good ball right now. Why are we only scoring 17 points on a bad defense in your projection again? Have you forgotten Carson is healthy and not playing on 2 sprained ankles? Theres a reason why Frank felt comfortable calling passing plays on the Titans even though Carson could barely walk. Its bc their secondary isnt good.

  17. How anyone who sees that shade has an agenda and wants to see it that way. He’s just praising his guys now. If he had said something like “man do you see the guys I am throwing too, I never had anything like this in Philly”. That would be shade.

  18. @EastStreet Well the problem with trying to defend Henry is it takes a toll. It's hard to continuing to tackle a human freight train so even if you stop him in his first 10 carries, it's the next 20 that you really start feeling the pain of trying to bring him down.

  19. I think he deserves the consideration, but there are others who should get in before him. I could see him having to wait a couple of years before getting in.

  20. LOL.. first of all I said "if Lance can develop".. Lance was primarily know for 3 things in the draft. 1) his crazy stats including a lot of passing and rushing TDs, 2) he's a high football IQ kid, and 3) he hasn't played a lot of football and would need patience. And yes, he is faster lol. Read defenses? He could do that very well in college. He was responsible for calling his own protections and was said to be good at reads and progressions. Known as a film junky. There's a reason he went early 1st, and a reason JG went late 2nd. JG can be good at times with short quick stuff, but he's very limited. Lance, again, if developed, brings a lot of different things. Not sure if he will develop, but the assumed ceiling is much higher.

  22. We will generate offense and points. our offense is solid. The test will be whether our defense can stop them and generate a few turnovers. If we can force a few turnovers we can win.

  24. Bingo. 4 years in this league, learn to play within the pocket, it is about time Mahomes realizes that. It is really mind blowing to me, to be honest. Confidence is a subtle thing. Pretty soon, you are hearing steps of defenders in your head when they aren't, and forgetting the fundamentals of pocket passing. I can understand that 1 or 2 years into the league. 4 years into this league, come on Mahomes and Reid, you guys can do better than that.

  25. It’s a long brutal season. It’s probably good Reich is limiting Taylor’s carries so he still has a lot left in the tank down the stretch. I hate the Titans, but I like Henry. If Henry gets hurt for any amount of time, the Titans offense will struggle. Lucky for them their last 8 games are cream puff city. There is a big drop off for us after Taylor so we would be in the same boat if Taylor misses any games.

  26. I think we will get beat badly through the first 3 quarters with a mad dash to the finishline in the 4th and still fall short. Titans 34, Colts 23

  27. I agree, he should be on sweeps and running off tackle and utilized in the slot and on screens. They paid the man and are not utilizing him to his skill set, that is not on him.

  29. Their luck is about to run out. Henry is playing against a team that has a running back that is on par with him. Taylor will go for 100. Tannehill and Wentz are pretty even. We win this game and I have no doubt. Colts 30 Titans 24. If TY plays we may win by 10. Yes Tennessee has had a couple of nice signatures wins over the Bills (they were extremely lucky to win that game) and they killed KC credit to them - both at home. Having said that they are coming here now and we are playing good football.

  30. Henry is just built different. One of the only ones who can take the kind of usage rate and not be affected much by it.

  33. So he can make a 43 yarder while hurt but not a 47 yarder?

  34. The real mystery is why Ballard felt compelled to sign him to such a huge contract. He’s getting paid like a top 10 RB. Either that’s too much green or Reich isn’t using him right — both can’t be true.

  35. Additionally, Wentz looks downfield ALOT more.

  36. We definitely have unique weapons. Hines, Granson, and Mo are some examples. Sometimes i feel their unique qualities, for which they were essentially drafted, aren't being utilized optimally. Take advantage of the mismatches. Dictate to the defense. Adjust these unique talents and weapons weekly to suit the opponent. The so-called belichek way. Put pressure on the opposition by utilizing your strengths, having a gameplan for their strengths, and attacking their weaknesses. Guys like Hines and Granson have advantages to their uniqueness, but they won’t necessarily fit the “standard” usage. Like Hines up the middle or Granson “muscling” in the red zone. I think u gotta use them as they are suited. It could just be a familiarity thing too. Carson still getting to know basically everyone.

  37. When they put him in that two back set with JT it makes the D make a decision. Stay with the heavier line up and play the run or defend him as a receiver. Either way it gives us an advantage. I don’t know why it’s not used more.

  38. He had his best seasons with the Colts and his having a good start to this season is that not the definition of Prime?

  39. I think thats an issue with Ballard. He let a guy in his prime go who was our best pass rusher in favor of a few draft picks that have shown very little since being drafted. Thats a problem.

  40. I know hindsight is 20/20 but our pass rush is now bottom of the league and id say the majority of us seen this coming. Autry is playing well in Ten, all their fans are saying he is their best FA pickup and they are roasting Ballard.

  41. I think the FO thought as I did that the club would not be seriously competing this year with a new QB, broken LT replacing a solid vet, disappointing performances from draftees in key positions like edge, secondary, and receiver (PC). I think they hope the DEs they drafted would turn the DL into the menace we need it to be within the nExt couple years and then new picks could fill in at places of need. I think they really thought they had the QB they needed, and so far I agree with that though I’d like to see a little more Manning fetal position rather than Luck hold on until you get nailed. I am critical of some of the picks last few years, but what they’ve had to dEAL with revolving door QBs and that can’t be denied. I also don’t think you can run your way to a title even though I grew up on running football and prefer watching a great ground game over a dynamic passing game and it was fun to watch Taylor see the cut back lanes last night. so I think these FAs would have helped this team this year but understand that maybe we weren’t ready yet, and long term it wouldn’t have been enough this year especially with the big contracts coming due. So I am dubious that it’s going to wrk out, but I see the logic in seeing what we have and trying to tweak the club next couple of years. The thing is I think I, and possibly the FO, was wrong about the strength of the AFC this year. KC is far from the force they have been, BALT is flawed, the Bills are far from unbeatable. Cin and SD have really bright futures though. That’s why it’s really hard to build a championship level football team. Lol.

  42. I dont know about Houston and Rogers but Autry was our best pass rusher and Ballard certainly looks a bit foolish letting him go to a division rival over a couple mil.

  43. Oh and Parris Campbell is out for a long time. Again. We can still get some talent in Free Agency. Lets go! Exactly, "wow what a great year, you helped make our defense one of the best in the league and terrorized QB's! We're going to send you to our #1 rival for almost nothing!" Front office plays 4-D chess with themselves and ignore common sense sometimes and then other times do the complete opposite. It's baffling. We let our O.C go, (Sirriani) to the Eagles and brought in a guy from the CFL? Again, what. Why?
