  1. Before I get into the GB&U.... I'm going to start with "The Silly" The Silly -If you didn't expect an ugly game travelling to Soldier Field, you might be silly. -All the stuff about Rivers from some of you is just silly. Did he look great today? No. But he did however have the highest QBR and Passer Rating than any QB that has faced the Bears so far this year. And Rivers did it on the road in Soldier Field. An 82.5 QBR for comparison sake, would be 5th best vs the league average right now. Calm down, have a chaser of context with your beers lol.

  3. The grass is always greener on the other side, folks. Philip may not be perfect, he may make a few decisions that may cost a game or two over the season but he is still the best option for the Colts, that will get better with time. His history of picking up steam in November and December will continue and he will have us fighting with TN for the division contender title. Even Brian Hoyer looked good in relief, so folks wanted to anoint Andy Dalton after a brief cameo. Once they made Cam Newton a passer, his inaccuracy loomed large. There is a reason why Peyton, who coul

  6. Sure is a lot of talking down on a guy who is averaging 4.1ypc, against said stacked boxes. While catching 16/17 pass attempts his way. People must forget Mack averaging 3.8ypc his rookie season. Tomlinson averaged 3.6ypc his rookie year, 4.3ypc for career.

  13. I think it’s some them and some the Colts are very stubborn and predictable with their play calling. They telegraph when they are going to run and rarely run play action in obvious running plays to catch the other team off guard and even if the other defense stacking the box and keying on the run they still try to run it right now down the middle. I also think Taylor and most definitely Hines and Wilkins are not as good at seeing holes as Mack was. Also, the use of the use of the running backs has been odd outside of Vikings games. Today Hines and Wilkins got 18 carries

  14. Say what you will about Rivers’ shortcomings and how it has impacted the O. IMO, Reich is the biggest culprit for the offensive problems. I personally believe that the play calling for the Colts has absolutely stunk. Especially in the red zone. But also because they are so predictable. I’m sure there are many who will disagree. But the main reason for the Colts’ offensive issues is the man calling the plays. He HAS to open things up. Pass the ball more. Be far less predictable. This “run the damn ball” mantra works if the pass game is clicking. So change things up to help the run game be

  22. Man, we ain't building rockets here. The concept is simple - if you put a barrier between the outlets that produce the droplets that carry the virus, it reduces the transmission. It is not full proof but significantly reduces spread. Arguing otherwise seems kind of clueless. In other words, masks do in fact do jack squat.

  24. The Inconsistent Eleven? Blue Charmin? Everyone's already forgetting we made Minshew look like a surgeon. We've played 3 bottom ten OLs, and today one without two starting tackles, and 3 starting WRs. NYJ's offense is ranked 32nd, and MN's is 30th. And we play a bad O next week (Chicago is 23rd) too... lol. Jax is 22nd. When our D plays well vs a decent team, I'll start thinking about nicknames. The Browns and Ravens are the first top 20 offenses we'll play this year.

  26. After the game vs Cleveland, on NFL network, I believe it was Charley Casserly that was reciting how well Taylor is doing running the ball vs how poor the Colts running game is when Hines or anybody else is in there (Mack excepted), and his point was he simply does not understand what the heck the Colts are doing NOT sticking with Taylor and giving the budding star all the opportunities possible. Today, again 5 ypc average, but on only 12 carries, plus 4 rec. for 55 yds. I completely agree with Casserly. I find it to be, well, just bad that Taylor is not being given a

  28. rock is the colts highest graded corner what stats are you looking at . Its hard to grade a corner based on eye test during games . if burrow throws it 40 times and rock is in perfect postion for 36 times so burrow doesnt even look his way then gives up one bad play and another catch it looks bad to you because the camera is not on rock the whole game only when the ball is thrown at him. looking at the stats he is very good . people dumped on him last year but was rated the second best rookie corner by pff and made the all pro rookie team

  29. I usually stay away after a loss because of knee jerk reactions versus the overwhelming praise after a win. I saw 4 highly contested balls that stayed in the Browns receivers hands to extend drives. 2 excellent escapes by Mayfield to extend drives. 3 forgettable throws by Rivers. Outside of that the Colts played a solid game all around versus a potent offensive team. Any given Sunday has always been the mantra, correct? The Browns had their Sunday with those 4 catches alone...... The Colts defense was the same all game lo

  34. Here are some titles of threads in the last week........... I think I'm out on Rock Ya-Sin Is it time to move on from TY Hilton? Time for Reich to go? How long should the River leash be? Just curious......if we were rid of our #1QB, our coach, our #1 WR, and one of our young, improving secondary players, what would this team be?

  36. Lamar got a few snaps here and there, even threw four passes in the opener. But they had him in on option packages, and Eason is not an option QB. Lamar took over as the starter in November, when Flacco got hurt. I'm not that interested in rushing to see Eason. I'd like to have a better idea of what he can do before the season is over, especially if Rivers can't get it going pretty quickly here; we need to know what we have. But we don't need to rush it, especially when he's mostly a one dimensional player. Also, while Rivers has been underwhelming and frustrating with

  39. Apologies, but that came to me last night as I watched clips of more of Hot Rod's kicks clanking off the posts. What is that, about 4 already this year? OK, OK, I know, there have been far better nicknames than that. And I'm sure he doesn't want it, either. But it seemed to fit, at least so far.

  42. Yes, new to the Colts the day Philip signed. And enjoying every minute of it. Not only watching him with a vastly better team around him, but my time on this board, as well. It's been a lot of fun. I actually am not a lifelong Chargers fan - only since Philip was drafted there. As I've said here before, we lived in Athens, AL during the time Philip played his high school ball there, so I've watched him play since then (well, every N.C. State game that was shown in Athens during his college years, that is, which was usually only 3 or 4 each season). We've since moved from there (bee
