  1. I love when you do these. Hope people realize how much effort goes into a quality post like this. Gracias, my friend. Thoughts: Blackmon’s coverage this year has been really concerning. If this team had just one more coverage safety, then Willis would be the perfect extra linebacker/Rover type. He’s so good when you put him in the box, and he’s an excellent blitzer. I know that Hicks has advocated for the same, and I 100% agree with what he sees there.
  2. There’s no way Campbell gets re-signed. You can’t build an offense around someone who is rarely available. His body can’t cope with playing in the NFL. Has a history of foot fractures now. Not his fault. Feel terrible for him.
  3. They lose this game, and it’s lights out on the season. So embarrassing.
  4. A turnover-worthy throw is a pass that deserves to be intercepted, regardless of whether it is. It’s an advanced metric to grade QBs. The INT against the Rams wasn’t turnover-worthy. Donald blew up the play after the shovel pass was in the air. Doyle was knocked down and the INT happened. I am assuming that was what you were getting at. Hope that helps. Although, in my defense, your reply didn’t leave me much to go on.
  5. Stallworth’s face is on a milk carton at W. 56th street. Guy has been virtually non-existent this year.
  6. Love it when everything PFF says supports what my eyes told me. Reed is good in the running game, but allowing 4 pressures from the LG spot is exactly why he’s a backup-level player. Buckner has been very quiet from a getting-home perspective this year. LBs played their best game of the year yesterday, but even that isn’t saying much.
  7. Colts are stuck with a broken QB. Have to engineer a top 10 pick. This is the worst QB class I can ever remember. Stuck in QB purgatory.
  8. We are playing like we are scared that Brissett will carve us up with arm talent. Even in the running bail out technique at times. I’m at a loss for words.
  9. “Probably not looking good for Quenton this week,” Colts head coach Frank Reich said. “I’m not ready to rule him out or anything like that, he’s a quick healer, but we’re probably not optimistic about this week.” I’m sorry for thinking going from this to IR in 3 days is hilarious. I don’t care if they don’t tell us anything. Just don’t insult our intelligence. I respect Bill B. even more now.
  10. The disconnect between what this team communicates publicly and what actually happens has reached farcical levels.
  11. He is being pressured on 47.5% of his dropbacks, the most in the league. That’s simply unacceptable with the money invested in this OL. I actually have no problem with Wentz holding the ball when he’s extending plays and moving out of the pocket. But that tactic is not what is pumping up the league-leading pressure rate, IMO. The tackles have been dreadful, and so have Kelly/Glowinski at various points.
  12. I laughed a bit and cried a bit when I read your guess was QB hits. Gotta get that fixed.
  13. He has only been responsible for 2% of the pressures he has faced this season, which is #1 among all 34 qualifying QBs. Per PFF. He’s not running into pressure, he’s not holding the ball too long, etc. It’s the protection - or lack thereof. And I say protection because the OL, TEs, RBs, and coaching staff all have some blame here.
  14. That’s 100% a valid counterpoint. At least Hundley has done it in a real NFL game before, however. His road passer rating in 2017 was 91.7. He just has a lot of composure. I think he can win the Colts a game.
  15. This may be an unpopular opinion, but when Hundley did play this preseason, outside his first terrible pick 6, I thought he looked the best of any of the QBs in terms of running the offense. Jacob Eason will not be on the Colts past his rookie contract. He has mega physical tools, but the same things he struggled with in college, he struggles with now. But the penalty for slow processing in the NFL is infinitely harsher.
  16. Very interesting intel. Autry could absolutely go off against us. Wasn’t there some guy last week trying to convince me that Autry was expendable because he had a pedestrian game in week 1 with a new team? The amount of water carrying going on around here is starting to get a little alarming.
  17. lol, honestly you think Blankenship is going to miss at the 1 yard line? C’mon man. Sure. A purple space alien can swing in from the rafters and swat away the kick, too lmao.
  18. The aggressiveness on 4th down is fine when you’re in no-man’s-land; the FG is a bit too long and the net yardage on a punt is minimal, even with great execution. On the opening drive when 3 points give you momentum, put you on the scoreboard, and can be the difference between winning and losing later? Take. The. Free. Points. Especially when your red zone offense is absolutely abysmal.
  19. The highest-paid OL in the NFL just got their franchise QB killed in week 2. From 1990 to 2019, only 12 percent of teams to go 0-2 made the playoffs.
  20. All of the tackles on D are coming from corners, safeties, or the DL. I feel like I’m coming across as exaggerating, but I think our LBs only have 1 tackle today. It’s bananas Twilight Zone stuff lol.
  21. No exaggeration, but Bobby Okereke hasn’t done anything in the first 2 games. He looks like a PS player being forced to play. And Leonard has only been slightly better. LBs missing in action.
  22. Confirmed via Ian R. Big lift, indeed!
