  1. THIS! If Inman and/or TY is out, we have to assume that HOU will be chomping at the bit. If either/both of these rookies can stretch the field/create mis-matches for their DBs, then NOW is the time to find this out.

    Well-played, ColtsVA, well played!

    Next Up The Texans

    Some creative/off-the-beaten-track thoughts for consideration this Sunday vs. HOU: Waive Ryan Grant now, and move Jalen Collins to active roster: start the latter! Start Jonathan Williams and Nyheim Hynes in a 2RB set, and run the ball >50% of the time! Whenever EE is on the field, let him block, not run routes (could use any TE to catch passes except EE): no one will expect this! Bring in Jacoby for the 4th and short scenarios: then have him inhale helium before moving onto the field, for a change in cadence/count that REALLY catches the opponent off-sides! Use Grover Stewart as a FB on 4th and short, with Williams running behind him! Okay: I'll look for my pill box now...

    Matt Slauson, unsung hero behind O-line dominance

    NewColtsFan has it right: Matt Slauson, in whatever capacity he can safely participate, NEEDS to be a part of the Colts organization going forward. In much the same way as Robert Mathis, he is "built" to coach up the O-line, and will be an awesome coach down the road. In the same way as we groom players to assume their place on the roster, we can place these players with special gifts for teaching/leading at their positions into special assistant or assistant coaching roles going forward. I am SO stoked about the future of the franchise, and it's in no small way because of changes like the Matt Slauson effect described by the OP. GREAT post!
  5. THIS is why I love this forum!

    OL gave Luck time and made room for Mack

    At 1-5, I like the way you think!

    Good to hear... maybe we can all come to a general consensus? Just kidding. I may be a relatively new poster, but I've been a forum reader for years. I know how things work here (or not!) HA-HA!

    These are fair points. I'm not trying to second-guess the coaches. IN fact, I probably should have added a coaching score to my breakout of team resources! Thanks for that reminder. My point is this: Pascal really showed very little this past game. Are Fountain and Ishmael REALLY that far behind what he demonstrated in the NE game? If so, then you're right, and CB's next call should be to Rishard Matthews' reps!

    I can agree on this. OL is tough to evaluate, as is RB, given the injuries, so that would account for our 1 point difference in scoring these areas. But WR and CB seem to me to be pretty glaring gaps. Hence, I am really keen on seeing what Fountain and Ishmael bring to the table, as opposed to keeping Pascal in the rotation at WR...

    Okay, good feedback! So, what you're implying is that we have greater needs at RB, WR and CB than at S or OL?

    Given the wide variation in talent on this team, I think that it only makes sense to sub-divide the scoring into a more detailed breakdown. For example: QB: 4 RB: 1.5 WR: 1.5 TE: 3.5 OL: 1.5 DL: 2.5 DE: 2.5 LB: 2.5 CB: 1.5 S: 1.5 ST: 3.5 I held back on explanations, but I think you get what I mean. This allows us not only to grade the team overall, but also to identify where we need help (IMO, that's RB, WR, OL, CB and S). Anything under 2.5 say, and we need to address this position... What do you think?

    Colts need a WR!!

    Agree wholeheartedly! Many posters are assuming that we have a need for a WR, or that the rookies, by their nature, will have drops... BUT what if these two are different? Let's do some real-time, real-game testing of our draft picks! They're just sitting there, while others (e.g. Pascal) are showing us no special talent. Otherwise, get on the phone and start making calls for Bell, Matthews, and even an OT...

    Colts need a WR!!

    If, as many posters on the forum state, this is a developmental season, this suggestion makes good sense. Let's get these two rookies some game day experience, and see what they have to show us... At the very least, it would make planning against our offense a bit more difficult for a couple of games!

    Le’Raven Clark is awful

    THIS! I looked at that "tackle" of our QB and immediately my eyes went to the helmet-to-helmet contact! And, given some of the bogus PI calls this season, I wondered how this was NOT a roughing the passer infraction... I'm just sayin"...
