    Should we be worried?

    This I agree with completely. Not worried, in the wait and see group, new coaches, new scheme, young players. At the same time however, I am also not encouraged by the reports. I think that's only fair since if the reports were the opposite, if the word was Basham and Wilson were having a great camp, people would be eating it up.

    Who is the team to beat in our division?

    Yeah, I think the Titans GM is doing an amazing job there. Their drafts recently have been really solid, bringing in lots of talent. Only thing I'm skeptical on is the coaching hire but even I'll admit that he has high upside. As for the team to beat, it's tough. I'd say both the Jags and the Titans honestly, as 1A and 1B. The Jags are stacked on defense and have a solid OL and RB stable, but the Titans are just all around talented. Texans are no slouch either and I'd say we're the team that has the most to prove.

    Jalen Ramsey Comments...

    Talking up Mariota and Watson but says Luck isn't that good? Okay, Jalen. And I actually like those two, but to act like they're better than Luck? Nah.

    Stock Up, Stock Down - Kevin Bowen

    Nice read. I've been all in on Wilkins for a while and I really hope he gets more snaps against Baltimore. He kinda has to considering the injury situation, but still. Really glad Braden Smith is taking advantage of this chance at RT. Didn't think I'd wanna see him there considering what was said about his stint at RT in college, but he looked solid the other night, albeit against mostly camp bodies. It'll be interesting to see how he does against better competition. And man, for our defense's sake we really need Turay and Lewis to get healthy and show something. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like Basham's proving much, which sucks. Thankfully Simon's been doing well, but it'd be really nice if Ballard's DL picks can pan out.

    Yeah, haven't seen that either. Did try to do some searching though, didn't come up with anything.

    I've never been a fan of the “chicken little” call out posts. If thinking this defense is going to be bad is having a chicken little moment, so be it. Me? I prefer having an opinion and voicing it, otherwise what are these forums for?

    Well, that Bowen tweet doesn’t do much to help my pessimism about this defense. They might get better as the season goes along, but all signs seem to be pointing to them being downright bad to start off the season. I like our offense enough (even though I do think they’re getting praise in part because they’re going up against our defense), but we’re really going to struggle to win games consistently if our defense is this bad.

    Seems like that's the 2nd practice since the game that I've seen referred to as sloppy. Hopefully they can finish camp strong tomorrow.

    Heh, reading those injury updates one after another is such a roller coaster of emotions.

    Dang, Turay. Yet again missing practice. Hopefully we get to see him at all this preseason.
  11. I know I'm not the only one talking about it, so I don't know if you're including me in the argument talk, but I'm just putting some context what's been said to the media and their interpretation. But I agree, it doesn't mean much. Just kind of the countdown until they can be held accountable, I guess.
  12. The only thing I can think of is that they'd consider it year 1 because it's Reich's first year? I don't know, I think if they are intending this to be year 1 then it's more to kind of give them a bigger cushion because they realized it'd take a long time to get this roster upgraded. I remember this actually becoming a debate among reporters, whether or not Irsay meant last year or this year being the start of the plan. This tweet was posted the day after the first tweet I posted:
  13. I was confused about when the "3 year plan" technically started because it was brought up last season, but I thought they reiterated that this is year 1. I thought I saw a quote from Irsay or Ballard recently but I can't find it. This tweet can be taken different ways I think. *Holder added that he thought Irsay meant 2017 as year 1, but I swear I remember seeing something where Ballard/Irsay said year 1 is starting with Reich. I found this too: https://fox59.com/2018/03/26/colts-jim-irsay-indicators-are-andrew-luck-has-turned-the-corner-in-rehab/

    Dontrelle Inman and Orleans Darkwa anyone?

    Yeah, I was hoping we’d go after Darkwa even before the draft. Now that we’ve got some injuries there I think we could definitely use him. IMO Darkwa would probably be the most talented back on or roster even.

    Yeah, said it before but I really think Wilkins is gonna be the much more effective back. I expect Hines to come out of his slump but to be honest I was never really as high on him as some others were. I don't have too much confidence in him ever being a consistent threat at RB, so I really hope he can show something with his receiving ability.
