  1. With the Colts you can automatically assume any injury is more serious than is presented and/or it will worsen before it gets better.

  4. He probably already cleared covid protocols before signing him. They must not expect Sanchez to miss three games because this allows them to use a covid call up to the 53 without putting Sanchez on IR. This way no one on the 53 has to be cut.

  6. So tell me folks, what is worse? Waiting to see if a guy can get past the bad luck of injuries while he is still on a rookie deal, or cut him loose to make ya'll feel better and see him get it together with another team? Till his rookie deal is done, why in the hell entertain any other ideas? I mean, what is the point?....so later you can say, "I told you so?"

  8. I believe he had 10 snaps against GB and 4 against TN. I'm assuming his lack of snaps last weekend had more to do with trying to have a bigger front 4 to help against Henry than Turay being ready or not.

  9. Doug.... I don't know how old you are, but I know you're old enough to know the following is true. Everything in life is understood looking backward. That's why hindsight is seen as 20/20. We understand our mistakes in life looking back and having context. Very little is understood looking forward. Decisions that seem obvious at the time, often look bad in hindsight. And that's true about all things in life, not just football. So, observing that Lewis is not worth the 2 and 5 we spent on him is not exactly some genius insight. It's viewed with context o

  12. This is a "no news" item to those of us who have watched Philip his whole career. Rarely do any of his injuries even get publicized (yes, I know, "but that's against league rules", ooooooooo - so what?). But when he has had an injury actually publicized, it was always discovered after the season that it was much worse than indicated during the season. And he's always found ways to play with them (plus who knows how many that have never been publicized over the years). He just doesn't believe in excuses, or blaming anyone/anything other than himself. Come Sunday in Houston, he'll be

  14. Buckner is a veteran and to important. He doesn’t need practice. He should be able to play if he comes off Saturday. The question does he come off before they leave for Houston.

  15. Two main weapons done before the year even begins. Cambell and Mack. Those 2 guys don't go down and Rivers has a different year altogether. I really hope Costanzo can make a speedy recovery

  16. Thanks, bud. I know I write a lot. I just finished my PhD dissertation in May and am doing some post-doc work now as a research scientist in a Wildlife/Fisheries program. I have a graduate minor (next year will have a master's degree in statistics). Outside of my work and family/personal things, the Colts keep me going. I am happy to be a Colts' fan. A die-hard, for sure. I was born in '86 so didn't get to see the Baltimore era, but fell in love with the '94-95 team ("Let 'er Rip"is what Marchibroda said to Harbaugh before every game). I like reading a lot on this board, and I like to w

  17. One of the most logical, and thought out posts in a while. Well done. You truly give in depth responses, and most fans won't take the time to read what you write, because of your in-depth replies. They should. I think for the most part, fans aren't really fans of a team, not the way it was when I grew up. They seem to get something, not sure what it is, but they receive something worthwhile by pointing a finger, and to them....identifying what they believe is the problem with their team. Thank god I don't live my fandom that way. I love believing, following, and suppo

  19. The bolded above was a seriously bad take. The full breakdown of 2019 is below, which includes how he compared to others. But a few points... In games where he got decent snaps, he typically had as many or more catches that Pascal. JB struggled big time throwing to the seam, and hitting slots in general. Plenty of All22 snaps where he missed a wide open Rogers and TEs in the seam. Johnson was only inserted the last half of the season, and common games were limited to one game in which Campbell got injured. Comparing either Johnson or Pascal to Campbell is a bad comp in

  22. Why you feel the need to point out something that is a nonissue to everyone is a mystery known only to you. No wait, we all know. Its because you like to patrol the board and attack anybody whenever you think you have an opening.

  23. Not necessarily. It's what they've already done to set the floor at $175m for 2021. They're borrowing cap space from previous seasons in an undetermined amount to prevent the cap from shrinking to the point that half of the teams can't operate without getting rid of their best players. (They also did it at the start of the 2011 CBA, although that was collectively bargained in that agreement. The cap actually shrank in Year 1 of that deal, and increased slowly the first couple of years.) It's also critically different from the NBA in that the NFL has a hard cap. The NBA suspended lu

  25. At 6.3, Lewis isn't really long enough to be on the edge for long stretches, IMO. At least Autry is 6.5. And he's not heavy enough to be in the middle for long either. Lewis is a nice utilitarian piece, and will have his moments and maybe an entire game at times, but destined to be a role player for different packages. Why there was a need to trade up to get him before round three I still don't get.

  26. Going into the draft, Turay was known more for his run D than pass D off the Edge, but still with explosive traits. Basically said he was terrific chasing down the run and setting the edge, but was rigid rushing, and lacked a go-to pass rush move. The time training in the offseason really benefited him. IMO, he's got a pretty good shot at becoming a 3 down guy. At least more than our other young options at DE. Houston, before last week, was 10th in the league at pass rush win rate. He fell out of the top 10 after last game. We have no other players ranked higher. He's a classic

  27. Good post. And the thing blew up because of a neck surgery, BP failing to get a backup QB, and us getting the first pick in the draft the year the best prospect since John Elway declares for the draft. As Irsay said when he was crying at that press conference with PM at his side, the two talked many ways to figure a way to work it, but "circumstances" was the 800 pound gorilla in the room. New franchise QB, new legacy with new management. Maybe Irsay should have simply kept Polians and Caldwell to work with Luck. Would it have been worse than Grigs and P

  28. I dont want to get in the middle of others discussion. I will say that I can see much more depth currently at quite a few positions, than we had with Luck. How would we do if we magically switched QB's? Impossible to assume. But as I have said, as others have alluded to, I would rather have adequate QB play along with a really good defense and depth offensively. I have been a fan for decades, and I truly love the way this team is being built.

  30. The obsession with Luck and exaggerating his "eliteness" is amusing to me. The truth is, nobody knows what the Colts record would be this year if Luck was still playing. Would Luck somehow have prevented Minshew from going 19/20 and 3 TDs? Would Luck have prevented JT's fumble 6? Would Luck have prevented Henry from going off and the Titans scoring 5 TDs on their first 6 possessions? Some of y'all act like Luck never played less than a perfect game and won all by himself. What makes it even more ironic is that Luck threw INTs at the same rate Rivers does, and Luck a

  31. And nothing of value was lost. If the man can't stay healthy it doesn't matter how much talent he has. Dude is 1 more season away from washing out of the league completely, if he even gets another chance at this rate. God knows I have no leg to stand on when it comes to defending fancrushes (coughJB7cough) but I get impatient easily with people who back a guy simply assuming he's going to be healthy and on the field when he hasn't proven that that's a thing he does. Would much rather have a lesser talent that can actually play 14+ games a year than a greate

  32. After pulling the plug on our undefeated season and a chance at football immortality, I lost all respect for Bill Polian and I no longer have the tolerance to listen to his arrogance... With all of the stars we had during the Manning era plus a very like able head coach, I still hate the fact that we had to listen to our arrogant, know it all GM every week after games... I’ll pass on listening to him ever again and let you guys pick out anything worth noting & check for it here.

  33. We saw him last week with the same injury and when not under pressure he was fine. The coaches don’t think he’s ready enough to dress. He’s not starting. Like it or not Jacoby is the back up.

  35. If Allen is eligible, it would be a good idea as Rigo also helped lighten Blankenship's load on kickoffs and you wouldn't want to go into a game with just 1 kicker/punter in case that guy got hurt. You may have been joking about the Texans claiming Allen but seeings how we're about to play them twice in the next few weeks, I could imagine them trying to hit us in a perceived area of weakness, if only for this weekend's game.

  39. Yep, I agree that he'd likely have been available later. There have been several like that, but I don't get too caught up on that so long as it works. It seems to be working out, but yes, I think we could have waited. Lewis at OSU had his best moments at OSU when moving inside as a rush 3T. His production decreased as OSU recruited some high star guys, but OSU still was able to move him around get pretty good use out of him. I do agree with you though that he's destined to be at his best when playing a role. I'm not sure what his future holds, but with all our DEs being FA next ye

  40. I think its a matter of the precious match up game. Changing plans with the Doyle/MAC/Burton role playing messes up the whole offense. Too much precision. Too much planning. Can't mess up The TE rotation or it messes too many other things up. Just a theory. I think the philosophy is to let the LTs do LT stuff. If Clark isn't working out, put in Green.

  42. He was a rookie that didn't get much time in preseason due to being banged up. That's an unreasonable expectation. Here's the video of the hit: Keep in mind that this is slowed down and Harrison Smith hits like a mac truck, so any contact from him usually carries a LOT of force behind it. In this case, all of this force was to the side of Parris' planted leg. This isn't some lingering hamstring or foot issue that just keeps coming back over and over again. Smith doesn't shoot for his knee and we most likely still have Parris Campbell on the active roster.

  43. I think the strategy with the Campbell draft was that he could start of at slot, then possibly take over TYs role as he developed and when TY rolled off. That's what really stinks about his injuries, it has stunted his development to the point where we might have to invest in TYs replacement not knowing that Parris might be able to do the job.
