    0 receptions on 5 targets today... 3 receptions on 11 targets for the season.

     

    I know a lot were expecting him to be our savior at WR2, but he hasn't really done anything to impress me so far this year.

     

    We badly need for him to step up, for TY to get healthy, and for other WRs to develop quickly.  Brissett had a bad pick late in today's game, but otherwise he's been playing very well this season, we need our WRs to step up the next 3/4 of the season to help him out though.

     

     

    Nobody covered themselves in glory today.  Poor showing all around, well beneath what should be expected.

    I don’t know where Reichs play calling went today. It was so vanilla and bad.

    Jags have a lead. 

    Not sure the offensive production can be blamed on Reich.  I thought he called a pretty good game.  Players just didn't execute.  In spite of a s#!+ performance we weren't totally out of it til the pick 6.  Theres no excuse for the past 2 weeks of defense tho.  That's where the vanilla is.

    If defense  plays like today versus  Mahomes  he will break the td record. 

    I predicted 1000 yards amongst friends earlier today and I was only half joking........lol

    If we stick to zone coverage, with zero pass-rush, Mahomnes will have a carreer day. 

    Agreed.  500 yards?  From what I watched today I don't think it's out of the question....


  5. Whole team was flat.  Hard to judge an individual performance amid the sea of mediocrity (to be kind) we witnessed today. I think they were already thinking KC.   It was a hard game to watch, our D scheme is pathetic, makes our offense need to be perfect to compete with the raiders at home and they were far from perfect.  Cant wait for the pressers.

    Love that nickname. Probably because I'm still a Star Wars nerd. Very clever. 

    I wish I could take credit for it.  I've seen it sprinkled on the forum a few times.  Being a giant nerd myself, not necessarily a star wars one, I loved it.  I decided to start using it because I want it to stick, I also think it fitting for Brissett.

     

    As much as I'd like to, I cant steal another human's props.  If we take it national though it belongs to all of us.  Go Colts!

  7. I just watched the Deion "you ball you get the call" nonsense on NFL network.  Jacoby "got the (well earned) call".  Deion says to him "you got the raiders coming up next" and Jacoby answers through his smile "they got us coming up too".  Really starting to like this guy.  Gonna be a fun year.  Go Colts!  Hats off to a great offensive performance today!

  8. Obi-Wan Jacoby continues to impress.  He was an assassin in the first half.  I thought he looked a little rattled at the start of the 1st drive in the fourth but he pulled it together.   The "game manager" manages to win another game and I'm not all that surprised.  I'm really starting to root for this kid.

    Both are and were great! Lara is a strong personality, Caroline was always a fun spirit! 

     

     

    Lara seems like a more seasoned "reporter/pr" person but I found Caroline more "charming".  I like Lara just fine tho, I think shes doing a good job.  KB had them both beat IMO........glad he didnt fall far from the tree.

    I'm not one to think CK can be better than JB ... But, Hoyer is another story. Who here thinks Hoyer can lead the Colts to a playoff, or big game win? I don't know if CK can, but I have zero confidence in Hoyer. I guess I am allowed to have my own opinion? Look at Hoyers history, is that supposed to give us hope?

    I wouldn't think many here would pin their hopes on Hoyer in that way.  His role is to support the development of Jacoby.  He may not be physically capable of what you describe above but it's often said, and I dont mean this as a criticism of Brian, "those that can't do, teach.".  His knowledge of the game and the qb position as an experience likely exceed his in game talent.  I had hoped Chad would be signed to the 53, and now I hope he clears waivers and makes the PS (I'm just not a fan of letting QB talent, and I think CK has shown some, walk right now).  If the Colts are only going to carry 2 QBs on the active roster though, Brissett and a knowledgeable veteran are the two that make the most sense.  I've said this a bunch lately, but I trust Ballard knows what he's doing.  If his best judgement is that the risk of waiving Kelly outweighs his contribution (potential or actual) to the 53 man roster, then I am going to trust that he knows what he's talking about.

    Colts are currently favored by 3.   

    Hope that 3 doesn't have to come from Adam.   :funny:

    I didn't know whether I should laugh'moji or cry'moji......ultimately I chose cry.....its too real.  You should be applauded tho, made me think.

    Two weeks is to long. You can’t lose both home games to a kicker. This week should of been enough. There should of been this discussion after week one.  He actually never should of been resigned after that KC game and a not to good season last year. Why is he still getting treatment on his knee if he isn’t injured. He needs to go on IR.

    They havent played either of those home games much less lost them.  There probably were, and are, continued discussions concerning the way forward.  It they had an out they'd probably take it........I'm sure every player undergoes some form of "treatment" every week doesnt mean IR.  And not signing him at all would require hindsight.

     

    Bottom line is they have more info than any of us.  If these forums were fact:  Irsay, Ballard, luck, manning, and Dungy would all be on trial for conspiracy to commit fraud,  we'd still have pagano, or KCs special teams coach as a HC, we'd have blown the bank on AB and bell, and brock osweiler would be under center.  All I'm saying is let it play out a little and see what happens. 

     

    Mobs with torches rarely make good decisions.  This is a winning organization,  reich , Ballard, irsay, and vinny arent blind, or dumb, or in denial.  They know the situation. If they havent made a move I have to believe it's because the moves available to them aren't any better than holding pat for the time being.

     

    When the opportunity presents itself I'm confident they'll take it.  Could be tomorrow,  could be in two weeks, could be in the offseason.  Hell, Vinny could turn it around and ball out for the rest of the year...........

    Kelly might actually get a chance to start for the jets if we trade him there.

    Yea,  I just read mono can be a 3-7 week recovery.  I couldn't believe it!  Who knew an 8th grade kissing disease could be a season killer? 


  14. Giving him 2 more weeks seems reasonable.  I know (as does everyone) that the chances of this team winning in spite of the kicking we've seen are very low, and if he continues to cost the colts games it will become a locker room issue.  But for now it's ok (especially if they dont have a guy lined up) to send a message that they wont overreact to players "slumping".   This FO is a thoughtful one and no matter how many of us are screaming "vinny's lost it! move on!"  Theysee him all week and they're going to take the appropriate time to make a decision.  If that's tomorrow, its tomorrow but it will be on their timetable.  We just need to trust the process,  they didnt panic over mcdaniels, they didnt panic over luck, they wont panic over adam.
