  1. Dropping three straight games sucks. I agree though, plenty of season to be had. Team health is a huge concern, so hopefully that can straighten out and we get people back nearly 100%
  2. Bobby O. Looked much better game 2 to game 3. We need that to continue
  3. All I have is that it was thought to be a high ankle sprain. The X-rays were negative of any breaks so there’s some positive news. No timetable as of yet - all per Ian Rapoport
  4. The offense is just lackluster. I can tell they aren’t smooth yet, like they don’t know exactly what they’re doing.
  5. Thanks for TEN injury updates! I hope we can get healthy fast. Time to be road warriors and get a W this sunday
  6. Reich’s play calling improved from week 1 so I’m happy there. Boneheaded calls were still made, but Eason threw the game away by throwing to Jalen Ramsey on back to back plays. Can’t get much lower football IQ than that.
  7. If this is somehow a Wentz slander thread, at least point out a mistake he made, like the bad shovel pass INT. He did not get much help by the line once again today. I feel bad for the guy. He played to win today and last week. It’s just disappointing that we lost and Tennessee won. Next week is huge. Pretty much a must-win
  8. This is a question I had - it looked like Marcus Brady was involved in play-calling this Sunday. Am I wrong? Genuinely curious bc it looked like he was although I was at a bar watching the game with no audio
  9. Shows why we lost the game so bad. Our inefficiency was evident. That being said, there is lots of room for improvement, and our guys have balled out before. We’ve seen their best and of course their worst. I’m ready for week 2.
  10. You’re exactly right, it would be. I listen to the ForTheColture podcast with Luke Diamond and he says it all the time: Frank Reich has been really good at playcalling in the past, especially his first two years. The last two years he’s made a lot of errors. I really pray he gets back to dialing up the right plays at the right times, it’s too often that he hasn’t been coaching to our players’ strengths. i.e. he needs to use Campbell’s speed, Strachans size, Pittman’s route running and open field speed etc. If he does that, I see a win.
  11. I think our main oline guys improve from last week, although if our RT is out from his foot, we probably lose the game no matter what. Assuming Fischer doesn’t come back, we saw last year against the Steelers what happened with backup tackles. That said, my score prediction with Smith and Fischer out is probably 33-20 Rams. With Fischer and without Smith: 33-26 Rams. with both: MAYBE, 35-33 Colts. I’m a big optimist for our guys.
  12. It did suck, but I always believe in our boys! Next week is gonna be tough, but I bet it’s better. Even if we lose NEXT week I’ll keep the faith that they turn it around
  13. Then you consider that Northwest Indiana is about 40-60 minutes away from Chicago. Majority of fans up here are Bears fans. I don’t understand this forum sometimes when it comes to pages like this, lol. This will be forgettable.
  14. Positives: 1) Carson Wentz was very solid (minus the awful fumbled snap). I would say a near flawless game from him given the game plan, but I’ll get to that in the negatives of course. 2) Strachan was also a highlight. He caught some passes that were not perfectly thrown due to pressure. It was great to see him keeping drives alive by making those solid catches. 3) Darius Leonard made a game changing play! It didn’t matter because we didn’t score, but our defensive star did what he was paid so much to do. 4) I’m running out of pros… uh special teams did their jobs today… Negatives 1) O line lost us this game. Everyone it seemed besides big Q and maybe Glowinski blew a block on every other play. Wentz had no time, drives were killed. Sad sad performance up front. 2) Coaching as a whole showed no game sense. Very few evident adjustments if any. Our D played better 2nd half but it didn’t seem coach-related. 3) Why were we running the ball to close out quarters? Don’t we want points? It seemed odd and out of place, and felt like we were playing for first downs, not touchdowns. 4) First half defense was not what I was expecting from this team. They had to face Russell Wilson but still were not even tackling well.
  15. I thought we were past these pointless emotional threads. We lost week 1 like we always do. A lot of negatives but a huge positive is how well Wentz played being hit every other play. Our offensive coordinator better get it together. It looked like Marcus Brady did some and it was not good, especially to close the halves.
  16. Leonard turned it up that quarter. Our D turned it up that quarter. More of that please!
  17. It’s game one. Also only half of it. Leonard will show up like he always has
  18. Quick! Get to the nearest Buffalo Wild Wings! Anywhere with a TV!
  19. going to need laser focus with all the yelling! Bears play tonight so it should be fairly peaceful. Let’s keep an eye on those division games eh?
  20. Going to a local sports bar to watch the Colts and get peeks at other games! Living in the Chicagoland area means I’m always out of the broadcast area for Colts games :/ T-minus an hour and a half!
  21. Wilkins isn’t an RB1, but he has great YPC and runs downhill. He’s made some big plays for us. LeMay just didn’t show me anything that we wouldn’t get from Taylor, Mack, Hines, and Wilkins. edit: which is unfortunate for him honestly bc he ran hard. Our RB room is just that good.
