  1. I hope so because in that second half against the Raiders they looked lost without TY.
  2. With TY being out I hope the gameplan will simply not be to pound the ball! More than ever Frank needs to be creative. They are the Steelers by name but they are NOT a good football team. This is a below avg Mason led team. Even with Big Ben game 1 they lost by 30 to the Pats because the talent level is subpar. Take away Ju Ju and they have no passing game. Connor has looked pedestrian but looked good against the Phins last week but EVERYONE has looked good against the Phins. Lol The Colts need to be aggressive on BOTH sides of the ball and get into attack mode early! That's what I
  3. Especially with Adam being on shakey ground. No one can take the GOAT title as far as kickers are concerned away from him for what he's accomplished but with his age also comes decline. No knock on Adam it's simply a part of life. He will still have flashes of greatness here and there but to RELY on him consistently at this point is foolish. I actually thought Frank did Adam no favors with the playcalling after the horse collar penalty late in the Bronco game that made it a 51 yard attempt in the first place BUT that's where the FLASHES from Adam will come in. Missed a PAT and a 45
  4. I thought about that too but look at the Pats with one of the weakest WR groups in the nfl. Playcalling and schemes matter. I honestly believe we are better off than last year with weapons because I like Pascal as a 2 for now. Jack is back and Cain is not being utilized at all nor is Hines in space like last season. I'm not seeing the creativity from last season BUT I believe Frank and Co can get it together.
  5. That was a staple in the Elway led Broncos.
  6. I concur with you about Dak because I personally think that JB is much better. What I don't understand is why are the handcuffs on JB? Frank has said on many occasions that JB can make all the throws (saw it in camp routinely) and to me his interception ratio is better than Luck's because JB will throw the ball away when he doesn't have anything. A couple of theories are out there that the Colts would like Luck back who is considered by some to be a generational type of qb and that's no knock against JB because they think HIGHLY of him but no one considers him to be on the fast track to a poss
  7. WOW!!! Colin Cowherd just did a segment on his show today about playoff contenders whether they are trick or treat... Now bare in mind Colin loves the Colts but he said they're a trick. Analogy was based on the Colts being ranked 22nd in passing and 18th overall in offense with arguably one of the 3 best o-lines in football. Also in a nutshell too many scratch and claw wins. Said JB is more like Dak and that the Colts DO miss Luck. I take what Colin says with a grain of salt but thought his take was interesting.
  8. Agree. I think because of all the praise (much deserved) that the o-line and rushing attack has earned, opposing defenses are taking notice too. Teams are basically saying you're not going to run on us so if we stop you on 1st and 2nd down to little or no gains, then we'll just pin our ears back on 3rd and longs FORCING JB to make plays under duress.
  9. Up to this point I love where the team is at and think Frank is doing a great job overall. With that being said I'm starting to notice that teams are loading the box to stop the run and we seem even more DETERMINED to run on the early downs to establish the running game leading to a lot of 3rd and longs as well as 3 and outs lately. Now I'm not saying to abandon the run but I think the playcalling needs to be mixed up a little more because the offense is starting to become predictable on 1st and 2nd downs. I'm not even seeing as much of Hines out the backfield for quick swing pass
  10. Now that the draft is over the team direction is starting to take shape.... Quenton Nelson is a BEAST and tries to dominate his opponent on every play. I'm still bummed about Bradley Chubb being taken one spot before and was on the fence about the playmaking lb Roquan Smith only for the Colts because of his size at the next level. Without us having a DOMINATE d-line in front of him to allow Smith to roam freely without having to shed 320lb o-lineman who pushed downfield. Which brings me back to Nelson who not only will protect Luck but will punish in run blocking. I also like Brade
  11. Seems like the 7th rounder Adams made the #1 overall draft pick Baker Mayfield get up slowly in the highlight reel around the 2 min mark....
  12. Fear is simply an unpleasant emotion caused by ANTICIPATION or awareness of danger likely to cause pain, a threat. The word fear used as a verb is to be afraid of something or someone. I believe ALL athletes play with some type of fear in their respective sports whether stated out loud or not. Fear of failure could be one. Myself as a former player the dreaded fear of a career ending injury was realized.(knee) Take the big hitting lb Ryan Shazier for the Steelers who by all accounts has high character but in a split second collision at the wrong angle (head down) now has a long rec
  13. Like some on your list a lot but I would definitely stay away from any knucklehead or red flag type. Like @TKnight24 said in a earlier post when he brought up Reuben Foster from last year's draft. A VERY talented player that had some red flags. If I'm not mistaken he was sent home from the combine for going nuts on the medical staff in which security had to be called. Now it looks like he has some major legal troubles ahead for a serious domestic issue and his young nfl career is ALREADY in jeopardy!! Not smart...
