  1. I would rather have a JAG/marginal tackle (such as we currently use) not be left on an island so often and get more chips on his man from TEs or help from running backs or have his job made easier by quick-developing plays like the Colts did on opening series But in absence of that, and to answer OP, hold like Life along said!
  2. TY isn’t the player he once was, but I felt he was definitely the most reliable third down target we had (he had 13 stick moving catches on 3rd down last year). This is a significant loss, and the early reports do not give me a good feeling about his future. Hope I’m wrong, you gotta love the Ghost!
  3. I meant “Welcome to Colts nation” I think he’s got a pretty good handle on America at this point. Sorry, I’m just jacked up!!
  4. His mom was running for her life in a refugee camp while soldiers were killing everyone. She went to another refugee camp and had Kwity. She went to America with nothing and raised her boys. Tonight her son announced on national television “She’s done working, she’s retired” with them both draped in an American flag. Just awesome. What a story. Kwity, welcome to America!!! https://www.espn.com/nfl/draft2021/story/_/id/31310483/meet-nfl-draft-most-extraordinary-prospect-kwity-paye
  5. Brother, preach!! Thanks, one of my fave posts I've seen about our offense in a long time. I hate when we go to jumbo on 3rd and one. Spread it out! And put the ball in your playmakers hands to win the game.
  6. I love how much heart he puts into the game. If he can stand he will dress and play.
  7. Yes. I have two larger questions: why do we keep running for short yardage out of jumbo formation? Everyone on the field knows Rivers can't run a stretch or bootleg, so the middle is clogged, and we try and fail over and over. Why not spread the field? We are 31st in the league in 3rd and one. Why is Reich letting Rathman decide who plays at any given moment (as has been reported)? "We view all our running backs as interchangeable." What? I understand the desire for position versatility, and maybe that quote is a fancy way of covering for their concerns about Taylor fumbling, but I can't believe Reich truly thinks JT and NH are interchangeable. I don't trust Taylor to beat a defensive back one on one. I don't trust Hines to carry defenders for 2 extra yards. Put in the player that will best execute your play call. Leave in the back that is hot and gaining yards. That's how you run the damn ball, IMHO.
  8. East Street, I just want to say thank you for the effort, knowledge, and hysteria-free analysis you bring to this board on a near- daily basis. Appreciate you man.
  9. Yes, JT has mis-read some lanes/opportunities and lacked some decisiveness this season, but he's no Trent Richardson. IMO he's a talented rookie who's devoting a lot of his consciousness to Rathman's mentoring about not fumbling. He was thrust into carrying the whole load and wasn't ready. I still have high expectations for him settling in and everything clicking for him, including 4th Q of this season.
  10. Hooker is another example of how being a great athlete is only part of being a great football player.
  11. Best of luck to Pierre Desir! Sorry he got hurt and sorry to see him go; he seemed like one of the really good guys, all class.
  12. Ed Dodds is the man and his rep will afford him the ability to wait for a good, stable situation, assuming he even wants a GM job. The Browns are a mess. I just hope Mr Irsay is generous with him so he can afford to wait for the perfect opportunity.
  13. Agreed. Bobby Okereke gets something under the tree too!
  14. Ok wow good point I guess I should have simply said "properly trained" should have looked that up.
