  4. How many times does our coaching staff need to see the zone defense not work before we finally decide to abandon it? At least for the majority of the game? The scheme should have gone the way of the immobile QB by now.... It is an outdated, predictable amd weak scheme that even QBs like Minshew can pick apart and make them look like top 5 QB material. Sure you can say that Minshew has shown some promise and arguably isnt a bottom tier QB and even has some good upside.... but let's not kid ourselves, he's no Patrick Mahomes / Russel Wilson / Drew Brees etc.... I for one want to see

  5. I don’t call guys undone by injuries busts. To me a bust is a player that shows that from a skill standpoint he doesn’t measure up. I think Hooker measures up skill-wise, but he has been undone by injuries. It’s a shame because he could’ve been really good. :(

  6. Good Game plan - both sides of the ball. Why did we not do the same thing vs Jax. Holy cow. Taylor - after a lackluster week 1, looked great with 100+. Would love to see his AVG increase and some break aways, but loved what I saw in his first start. Rivers - not big numbers, but very efficient and great bounce back game. The INT was not on him. Pittman - Not a ton of yards, but 4/6 and seemed to be gaining confidence. MAC - what a breakout game for him. Inherited the #1 TE role and put up 100+. Hands looked great doing it except for....

  7. Thanks again for all your participation in this week's Colts Mailbag, which you can find by clicking here. Lots of questions this week about the defensive side of the ball, particularly the coverage schemes being utilized by defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus. I think you'll find there were attempts to make adjustments against the Jaguars, the execution and communication just wasn't all there. Definitely fixable moving forward. Also, I think there's a hang-up about how many times Philip Rivers threw the ball in Week 1. Granted it's only one game, but there were so many short passes that

  8. Just a sidenote, since we're scouting box scores: Saquon Barkley ran 15 times for 6 yards tonight. So on the brightside, this must mean our rookie RB is better than a consensus top 5 NFL RB.

  13. Chad Kelly comes in after a late Covid outbreak to all the O coaches and QBs to lead the Colts to a 49-0 win in swag fashion. Ballard is so impressed, he promotes Chad to a dual HC/QB1 position. Tired of the Charmin soft zone coverage, Kelly also plays DB and has 5 INTs and 2 forced fumbles, scoring on 2 of the INTs. Irsay is so blown away, he changes the team name to the Indy Swags and offers Kelly the GM job too.

  14. I gave myself a day at work and away from our loss to try to reflect on yesterday's game. Disappointing we lost and it stinks we lost Mack for the year, but I think there were some positives from yesterday's games. Here's my good and bad. The Good: 1) We got off to a fast start. This has been a problem for the Colts for several years now (dating back to the Pagano days). We scored a TD on our first drive (something that's become pretty rare for this team) and we looked basically unstoppable on our first drive. After a stop, we had another drive where we looked almo

  17. I think the entire world underestimated the Jags. And looking back at it, I honestly don't know why. Their offense looks good on paper and people viewed them as the worst in the league for some reason. Minshew is a very effective passer and won Rookie of the Week several times before the front office foolishly benched him to save face for an ugly Foles contract. Their receivers are great with solid depth and a talented rookie. The running game was ineffective with an underwhelming Fournette so its not a huge surprise that they got better with him out of the picture and their

  18. I wouldn't try to connect too many dots. MN OL is not good. We played more man today, giving the DL more time to get home. It looked like we stunted/blitzed a bit more too. As far as the TN/Jax game, TN hasn't looked that great. They've needed late game heroics and FGs to win both games. Is Jax as bad as we thought, probably not. But you shouldn't be all that surprised that Minshew passed for 300 against them. Their pass D wasn't good last year, and it's not good this year. Didn't watch the game, but I'd bet they played a lot soft zone like we did, and Minshew simply ca

  20. Both teams are looking to bounce back and avoid going 0-2. The Colts will play without their dynamic running back Marlon Mack who will miss the year with injury. How do the Colts replace his production? On defense, the Colts will have to play better to win this one. Can Xavier Rhodes make his former team pay for cutting him. We will see. Did you know? The Colts have never lost to the Vikings at home. How to watch/listen to Colts games Good luck! Enjoy the game and your football Sunday.

  22. So, are any forum members going to be at Lucas tomorrow?? I saw an article in the Star about a lady who hasn't missed a home game since the Colts came to Indy. She was 14 the year they moved and hasn't missed a game since. Even she didn't get in on the 2500 STH's who were allowed to attend tomorrow. Irsay decided she would be his guest tomorrow. Very cool.

  23. I don't think they can generate much noise. I've seen people complaining about the canned crowd noise too......not being loud enough. I think we're giving up real crowd noise this year. Honestly, I'm just so glad to have football. Gives us a reason to make chili and have friends over to watch the game (on our screen porch). It is a welcome bit of normal and a distraction from the pandemic. I really really just hope the whole season gets played

  24. 10 of the Jags' points came from great field position due to interceptions. Our defense definitely needs to be more physical and we need to play more disciplined football but I'm happy with the potential of this team. Still very excited for this season

  26. A) We need pressure by the D-line for the zone defense to work B) We will not have any pressure by the D-line if the opposing team's receivers get a free release and the QB gets the ball out quickly, negating any pressure/pass rush our D-line might have provided. C) The soft zone defense allows opposing teams to complete short & intermediate passes at an extremely high rate, allowing them to keep the ball and move up the field and into scoring position. D) The bend-but-don't-break defensive concept is flawed. It allows the opposing teams more opportuniti

  29. Just saw that PFF had them both on their offensive team of the week. Glowinski was best RG week 2 and Mo was best TE week 2. Mo actually was given the best offensive player overall. Nice to see those 2 get some love.

  30. Anyone catch the Chargers and KC? Crazy story - Tyrod Taylor started experiencing chest pains right after the coin toss. He was up until then expected to play. So they sent in Justin Herbert with no warning. Granted it's only one game but Herbert looks legit. I won't say he took over the game or anything but he for the most part made good decisions and some accurate throws. Only made one big mistake when he took a big sack instead of getting rid of the ball. Chargers ran the ball a lot though. Plus while Herbert obviously didn't have the advantage of

  35. Yeah, I agree he needs to stop posting because he is looking worse and worse with every post. I know he doesn't look as good Edge did as a rookie but Edge is a hall of famer and that's very rare. But besides Edge I don't see another rookie RB look this good with this team besides Edge. I know some so will say Faulk but he's also is a hall a famer and a different style runner. JT looks outstanding to me yeah he could have gone some different directions and got some more yards but that will come with more experience. I'm excited for JT's potential going forward.

  40. Until we see this team put it all together...I don't feel safe predicting any type of stretch like that. This season has a lot of parity...more than I recall seeing in recent years. Of those teams you listed...only the NYJ appear to be a dumpster fire. CIN maybe...but they are still figuring things out with Burrow. I think CHI and DET are decent opponents...and CLE has talent. Going to have to take it one game at a time.

  42. Yea, that's pretty wild... but I guess if you consider that we got stopped on the Jax 3 (left potential 7 points on the board), missed a FG (another 3 - which resulted in a FG for Jax), plus Jax only had to drive 27 yards for their first TD (after a Rivers INT), and drove for 3 yards and got a FG after the 2nd INT.... we basically left at least 10 points on the board and gave them 10 (maybe 13 if you want to count their FG after our missed FG, I didn't because they still drove 70+ yards in that case)...... that's a 20 point swing basically from 4 bad plays by the Colts throughout the whole gam

  43. I think it is a good idea to keep a Kicker on the PS, especially this year. I don't think this has much to do with Blankenship missing a FG in week 1. Unless he completely falls of the rails, I think the job is his for the year. Sign Gay to keep a guy in case Blank comes down with the Covid.
