  1. I sure hope it wasn't only because Reich wanted one of his guys. 2017 - 56 sacks and team average of 3.7 yards per carry. 2018 - 18 sacks and team average of 4.2 yards per carry. Maybe the most improved unit of any position in the league.
  2. I'm still optimistic it will work out, but it's hard not to think - if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
  3. I think it depends on the offensive line. If they play well, Brissett and our offense would be okay.
  4. I don't think it's an overreaction to be disappointed in how the first string offense looked in the limited time they were on the field. It's what Reich said, too: While Reich admitted that he wasn’t exactly calling the most exotic run designs Thursday night, he has confidence in his offense that it can get the job done in even the most simple of play calls. But, as Reich said of the first-team’s effort after the game, “We couldn’t run the ball at all.” “Yeah we were vanilla … but it shouldn’t matter in the run game,” Reich said. “You know, we were expecting to run the ball. We know this is a very good run defense — Leslie Frazier is a great defensive coordinator; this defense is always tough to run it against year in and year out. But that was disappointing.” https://www.colts.com/news/colts-bills-frank-reich-postgame-reaction
  5. Kind of, but Hooker was a first-team All Big Ten pick after his sophomore year at Ohio State https://www.landgrantholyland.com/2016/11/29/13784956/2016-all-big-ten-conference-football-team-malik-hooker-raekwon-mcmillan-tyquan-lewis and then entered the draft. He had seven interceptions, including three he returned for touchdowns, and was a consensus All-American. So he at least had one really good year of college football. I should stop posting about it and just see what happens over the next couple of seasons, but surprises me about Turay is that he was at Rutgers for five years and never even made honorable mention for All Big Ten, and then got drafted in the second round.
  6. I bet he just saved a bunch of money on car insurance.
  7. I was reading today that Carroll Phillips, playing in the same league as Turay, had 19 tackles for losses and nine sacks during his senior year (2016) at Illinois and was named First-Team All Big Ten. Apparently, he didn't get drafted because of medical issues. http://walterfootball.com/wu2017cphillips.php Turay, during his senior year at Rutgers (2017), played in 12 games while starting nine at defensive end. He had nine tackles for loss and four sacks, and was not named to an All Big Ten team. His best year in college was his redshirt freshman year, when he had 7.5 sacks, and then injuries limited him to eight games his sophomore year and three games his junior year. Having played only two years of high school football, it makes some sense that Turay is behind other players in his development, although he was at Rutgers for five years including a redshirt season. Can the Colts can translate his explosive athletic potential into becoming a legit NFL starter or at least an impact player on third and long? I have no idea, but I think it's interesting that a guy who apparently has so much ability has so little production to this point in his football career.
  8. The thing about Turay that has always concerned me is that he wasn't particularly good in college. 14.5 sacks and 19 tackles for losses total over a 4-year period at Rutgers. Never even made Honorable Mention All-Big Ten, let alone being named to the First, Second or Third-String All-Big Ten. That doesn't say that he lacks ability, but something was missing. I know that Ballard knows what he's doing, but this one is a little hard for me to understand, even though Turay apparently looked great at the Senior Bowl. Hopefully, the offensive line will come together once they get all of their starters playing like they did last year. But if they continue to struggle, the decision to change position coaches after a season of immense improvement at this position may be a little tough to defend.
  9. Thanks, I just talked with a customer service rep at Hulu and she confirmed that the game is blacked out but couldn't explain why a game in Buffalo that is being broadcast on Fox 59 would be blacked out here (I live in Bloomington).
  10. The game is available free online by the way: https://fox59.com/2019/08/08/watch-the-indianapolis-colts-first-preseason-game-against-the-buffalo-bills-on-fox59-and-fox59-com/
  11. Do any of you live in central Indiana and have Hulu? If so, are you getting the game? Strangely, Fox 59 doesn't show up on my menu tonight, which I guess is because of some kind of game blackout on Hulu.
  12. Somebody suggested that Cain might turn out to be better than DEVIN FUNCHESS. Have you ever heard such crazy hype? Better than FUNCHESS??? Better than the Devin Funchess? That is insane, impossible, and an insult to the possibility that Funchess could be pretty good, probably not great, but pretty good playing with Andrew Luck. I believe this poster was also implying, if you can believe it, that Cain could be better than Rogers, Fountain, Pascal, and even Marcus Freakin Johnson. If you're going to say that, it is the SAME thing as calling Cain a first ballot Hall of Famer.
  13. Funchess is the about same age as the Colts young guys, 24, vs. Krishawn Hogan, Daurice Fountain and Steve Ishmael at 23, Zach Pascal at 24, and Chester Rogers at 25. Why not see what young Funchess can do with defenses focusing on Hilton and Ebron, and A. Luck throwing him the ball.
