Practice Squad

Practice Squad (2/6)



  1. For me its less the record and more the feeling I have watching the games. Can anyone that's watched this Colts team under Ballard/Reich say they didn't immediately think we were in trouble when the Ravens scored to end the third making it 22-9? A 22-9 lead in the 4th quarter and the 6-7 Colts fans that watch/chat/text during the game with me all said the exact same thing - here we go again. Sure the schedule has been hard but other teams aren't routinely blowing leads, leaving 3-9 points on the field every game, getting demolished by division rivals and refusing to adjust when the game is slipping away. Yes the Chiefs have lost games THIS YEAR but the Colts have this happen every year under Reich/Ballard. Ill gladly accept the comparison when I see the Colts even remotely perform at the Chiefs level for even 3 consecutive games. Its either terribly slow starts or catastrophic finishes but this team has played maybe 1-2 complete games in the last 50.
  2. I see this around here a lot and it really confuses me (not directed at your personally btw). Drafting players that take 2-4 years to develop is failing as a GM when other GM's are drafting players that are ready now in the same draft range. He's clearly choosing the wrong player. There is literally no scenario where getting positive results later as opposed to earlier is better- drafting included.
  3. Fisher got absolutely worked on the strip sack of Wentz where the defender was essentially untouched to Wentz. We have different views on playing well apparently.
  4. If we're being objective... Did anyone at any point say; "This game would be 100% different if Nelson was out there?" I mean that was against a top 10 sack producing unit this year and our RBs had their best game of the season. I love Nelson too but the fact he was adequately replaced by an undrafted free agent...
  5. The idea that the Colts can make the playoffs by beating all the bad teams and losing to all the good ones doesn't really instill confidence. Show up tonight vs a potential playoff team and get a win. IMO tonight is a must win game.
  6. That 4th down call this game was terrible even though they converted. The risk outweighed the reward so far it was lunacy to go for it. Its like gambling $5000 to win $10. Just because you win and now have $5010 doesn't change the fact that it was a terrible decision.
  7. 10000% agree with this and its an example of what drives me crazy about this teams approach to 4th down. Aggressive posture that's almost never backed by the game plan. If you're going to be aggressive than play aggressive. Frank risked 3 points on that 1 play (if we dont convert they're in FG range) and for what? So we could dump it off to RBs on 2 of the next 3 plays? I assume Frank realized we needed like 50 yards to get in FG range, right? Id prefer not to hear about the deep shot not being there (it wasnt all day anyway) because, I dont know, the Dolphins had to assume that was the plan after you go for it needlessly on 4th down.
  8. I agree with you overall but that one play in particular was a mistake by Pascal (IMO). Our outside blocker was driving the CB towards the boundary and Pascal was supposed to cut inside after the tackle (there's a hole there) but he stretched it too far outside into the CB that was effectively blocked right into him. I recall this as should have been a TD but for that mistake. *I'm recalling my thoughts after the play and the replay but I haven't watched it again since.
  9. The fact is if you list their accomplishments/results with no names attached and had to pick one - 100% of people would pick Grigson. 100% guarantee. The only way to say Ballard is better is to attempt to add context that isn't intuitively apparent in the results. All of that context has to lead to a better result at some point or you have to accept the added context is irrelevant.
  10. Honest question how long does it take to turn a roster around? Look at the Browns - their roster was worse and they're much better. What about the Cardinals? They've had top 10 picks 3 years in a row and are now battling in the toughest division in football. The Raiders? The Dolphins? The Chargers? The Bills? The Panthers?
  11. To be fair that goes both ways - if the Titans had a healthy Brown and Julio they would have scored more points.
  12. Agreed although I'm closer to A-/B+. I mean which QB's in the league would we reasonably expect to perform better in our first 2 games given all the bullet points you just mentioned? Two or three at most (IMO) and the ones that come to mind are literally league MVPs.
