    My guess is you are more than capable of making your points without dragging the color of peoples skin into the argument. Think of us all as 'blue'.

    This should shut the thread down. White privilege is a myth made up by a self hating white woman. Grow up and take responsibility

    To bring the subject of race into any thread in this forum is totally repugnant to me. Liking or disliking a player should be based on their skills not the color of their skin. Totally disgusted, this thread has gone on too long.

    Thank God we won the KC game now otherwise Houston would be in complete control of the division. We still control our destiny.

    I always figured our last three games would be tough. Saints for obvious reasons, Panthers because I think really highly of CMC and their WR’s, and the Jags are never fun. We were always gonna have to take advantage of the middle portion/home friendly portion of our schedule.

    Leonard Little killed a lady and continued to play. After that he was convicted of other crimes. Stop trying to blame race.

    Delvin Hodges is starting for the stealers tonight. They didn't snag Swag off the practice squad. So weird, because he is amazing What's ironic about it?

    KC kind of reminds me of Indy the year they won the Super Bowl. Can't stop the run for anything, so if the offense sputters early and gives the other team a chance to build a lead then they wear the defense down by running it down their throat. Even though that isn't exactly what happened in this game.

    Looks to me like the chiefs are swirling. They barely beat the lions, they got bullied by us, and now they lost at their own game blowing a 17-3 lead at home. They need to stop treating Mahomes like superman and run the damn ball

    Ya but also Houston winning today is actually better cause now they will come in to Indy on an emotional high cause they won their past two games and they will be probably a bit over confident thinking we got this and colts will and better show up we lay an egg at home again that will be completely unacceptable. So they better show up and please no more two deep prevent me from winning defense please.

    Kelly can play, the question is long term whether he's better than JB and if so, is he better enough to make a change? This team won't be making any changes in QB1 this year for sure and if they do, which they won't, it would fall to Hoyer. I wouldn't discount Kelly as having real potential, he can play, but let's all be smart about it. I think he's on the PS and not the active roster for this very reason, dude can light it up but needs to prove himself and show he's capable of the weight of the job over time, still a lot to earn for him. Meanwhile, back at the farm, Jacoby is on grind and we need to put the weight of Colt nation firmly behind him. So here's to JB kicking butt and hoping that Kelly someday blossoms into the player he's capable of being! See you at the drum!

    I can't help myself. Chad Kelly was considered the most talented quarterback in the draft by the same General Manger who picked Peyton Manning over Ryan Leaf, Bill Polian. Chad Kelly was Mr. Irrelevant due to his off-field problems. If he would have had "white privilege" as you claim, he would have been drafted much higher. Chad Kelly is a talented Quarterback who was guilty of misdemeanor second-degree criminal trespassing. It's not like he was a member of a group of men who killed someone, lied to the police during the investigation, and destroyed evidence in said murder. Chad Kelly was released by the Denver Broncos due to this charge. Chad Kelly has been waived once by the Colts and cleared waivers by all 31 other NFL teams. Chad Kelly has been given the chance to prove himself by being given a spot on the Colt's Practice Squad, the Practice Squad! I am having trouble finding this mysterious "white privilege" you speak of.

    Race has nothing do with it but I agree with you because Jim Kelly is his uncle is why he gets chance after chance. JB is a better QB IMO and is a better person.

    Good call, I can already see someone taking away from what we did last week now . Saying KC isn't any good blah blah . KC is still a good team and our win against them was great regardless. This game coming against Houston is a season changer in reality. We need to win that.

    So we can all agree the Patriots have no serious opposition en route to the Super Bowl?

    The correct plan would be to keep him around and see if he can beat Hoyer out. If he is who we think he is then that should happen. That would allow him to stay on the roster. Then from there hes in position to compete with Brissett. Let him show hes committed to the job and keep working his way up. If he beats Brissett out on down the line he will have really earned it because Brissett does everything the right way in terms of preparation and the unseen details. They will be looking at all that. Not just arm talent.

    I think that anyone who dares to criticise or express concern about aspects of Brissett's plays is getting shouted down by a minority here on the board and accusations of being negative/a hater etc. Posting the same things over and over doesn't make them valid. Ignoring when people point out what you've posted isn't true doesn't make it true. I think if you look at the tenured posters who know what they're on about (and no I don't include myself in that), most are saying the same things about Brissett. To be fair to @EastStreet, a lot of the concerns he raises are valid, maybe strongly put, but still valid. I may be wrong, but I don't read it as he's calling for Brissett to be dropped, or for a QB to be drafted next year, instead being cautious about what we've got with him. People have thrown up Big Ben and Brady as QBs who took time to develop, fair. They had good D's and a running game that allowed them that luxury, and we are fortunate to have a degree of both now, certainly when compared to Grigson era rosters. But that being said, even in his formative years Big Ben was light years ahead of Brissett in terms of key metrics such as Y/A, granted at the cost of higher INT%. Brady is a more in line statistically, and probably in play style. Why is it so abhorrent to say that he's done very well so far, but the training wheels have to come off at some point, and it's better in games we're in control rather than when we find ourselves having to throw to win a game in a shootout. Okay put it another way, and I'm not saying this is the case with him. But I'd say if he ends up being a Dalton level QB, then it in the long term makes it harder to have long term sustained success. Good enough to start, good enough to win enough games that you're not drafting high. Not quite good enough to be able to put a team on his back when needed. Sure you might get a year where you have a good run, but it's less likely. A few exceptions aside, the QBs in a Super Bowl tend to be "franchise" guys. The exceptions that jump out to me recently are Flacco and Foles (and that was a unique situation). Look at the damage Flacco did to the Ravens in the long term. He's not a rookie. He's had time to sit and develop and learn from some of the best in the business. If he doesn't get some stuff by now, such as making progressions and not locking onto a receiver, that's worrying. That's rookie type stuff that should be ironed out by now. We're all Colts fans, we all want the team to win. Why wouldn't I want him to become the guy? We all want to have the best players right? He's also very likable as a personality and face of the franchise. But that doesn't mean I'm not going to have honest conversations about what I see on the field, and I'm certainly going challenge people who post things that are just aren't reality. Sorry man, you got my rant, not aimed at you in particular.

    I brought this up in another thread, and I realize this is about DT's I agree with the OP that we need some help in the middle of the line As the overall team roster improves, the draft picks will have a harder and harder time making the roster. You can see this trend 1000 miles away. We may start seeing 5th and 6th round picks getting cut, as they cant break into this team With this in mind, I think we may actually use some of this draft capitol being used to move up a few spots to grab a game changer DT or DE The best defensive player in College is Chase Young......... I havent seen anything like him in a few years... better than the Bosa's.....plays run and pass at elite levels He has a large group of pass rush moves and I believe he will be 10 year pro bowl player in NFL.... He probably would cost too much, but I do see CB opening up the "draft wallet" and using some draft capitol to move spots to get a difference maker on defense

    Everyone assumes we are running it so much because JB can’t get it down field. In actuality it’s more about exploiting your opponents weakness and using our strength. We are close to the top in yards per drive which means we are getting it downfield. Every TD Is worth the same amount of points. It doesn’t matter how you get there.

    Irrelevant. Part of being a game manager is exploiting a powerful run attack. However, I'd like to point out that we already did have 1 game this year where the run game was completely ineffective, and that was the game against the Raiders where the running game gave us less than 50 yards of total offense. And in the game against the Raiders Brissett had 250 yards and 3TDs. So no, he's not necessarily a product of the running game. Although it certainly helps a game managing QB when the running backs are effective.

    Unfortunately you are right. I have said all along if Brissett goes 8-8 and we miss the playoffs then he isn't the answer. I have never changed that stand. If we go 10-6 and win the South then JB has earned his stripes. Not really too hard to understand, at least I don't think so

    The odds of that are actually pretty low right now. We just got through the toughest part of our schedule, including the toughest game we're probably going to have played all year, and we have a winning record. The games from here get easier, not harder. Especially if the players on the actual roster improve the way I hope they will We have a pretty solid chance of equaling our 10 win season from last year. Brissett isn't nearly as good as Luck but the team didn't dig as big a hole either and Mack in particular and the RBs in general have really improved. I don't see us going 5-6 over the rest of the season.

    Being a skilled Game Manager early in your career is a pretty good basis to build on. Generally speaking if you're an actual game manager it's because you lack certain obvious talents to be anything more than that. Definitely not the case with Brissett. Brian Hoyer was a game manager because he was smart but didn't have much of an arm. Other game managers like Smith, Flacco, Cassel etc are usually held back by a lack of physical ability, a literal inability to make key deep throws. Brissett has a great arm, he's just still figuring out how to use it. He's got the talent to make deep throws once he gets his head around the way Reich wants him to do it. If, while figuring that out, he's good enough to manage the team to wins against tough opponents, I call that a pretty good deal.

    What a waste of opportunity and talent. You have a QB who had all the talent in the world whose behavior kept him off the field, such a waste so instead we have to settle for a 3-2 record and a serious chance to win the division. Such a crime

    This is where you are wrong. I don’t know whether JB is going to be the guy or if he can improve. I just don’t go around saying he can’t and understand there is a lot that goes into what this offense is doing.

    Yeah, but if your gamble doesn't pan out, then you took one step forward and two steps back. Why not just stay the course and keep building a team that can win with any QB behind center?

    I agree, if Hill was playing, the score probably would have been different, but how different will never know. Like saying if we had recieved the opening kick off, the game would have ended differently. Moot point really.

    I guess I have become used to the exciting Manning/Luck style of QB and before that the Unitas/Bert Jones style. I have a difficult time watching "Checkdown Charlie" Brissett run the Colts team. I have NFL Sunday Ticket and I find myself watching other teams now more than the Colts...and I have been a Colts fan for more than 50 years. Too bad we don't have Deshaun Watson instead.

    Unlike Pac-Man, he’s not talented enough to overcome his nonsense. The only reason he’s gotten this far is because he’s white and he’s related to a former player. I don’t know why the two are even being compared. They aren’t on the same level as far as talent.
