    Putting something here so I don't have to look at forced profile update.

  1. Oh and also if you watch Taylor's next run after that (which didn't go for much) you'll see him pass up a chance to just bulldoze the hole in favor of a cutback that wasn't any better. To me it looks like he's trying to find the big hole which isn't gonna be there more often than not in the NFL. Give him a little more time. He's gonna start poppin them soon.
  2. The Colts didn't really try Chicago on the edges because of their speed at LB. And I don't blame them. It's better to run at a defense like that. But on that 16 yard run Taylor had early 4th quarter if they had run that from the far hash it would have gone for six. Guaranteed. Only the short hash side saved the Bears there. In fact you see Roquan Smith (who can flat move) take a very conservative angle just to get to him. Watch how effortlessly JT pulls away around that edge it's something. Defenses are going to see that play on film and be very concerned in their
  3. He's off to a great start. Looks like a great pick, hope he can stay healthy. Also re: DROY... It's really tough for safeties to win it. My favorite two safeties that I've seen so far this year are Blackmon and Fuller (who got hurt). But here's a site that's a betting type analysis/look at DROY but still has some good info on past winners and whatnot.
  4. That win may not have been pretty but it's the kind of win that happens a lot in the playoffs. Being able to control the game even if you're not lighting up the scoreboard is extremely valuable. The Bears have a good defense, a very strong front seven with speed and the Colts weren't their full selves but controlled the game and took home the W. Rivers isn't going to provide QB play of the level you need for a top 3 defense. But let him do his thing behind a good line and run game and he can get you through games like that. Taylor did have 4 ypc vs the Bears. And Taylor is goi
  5. I was kind of enjoying the aftermath of that win. Think I'll let myself out and check back later in the week.
  6. Gotta disagree with you here Nickster. Taylor racked up almost a thousand carries at Wisconsin with over 6k yards. I doubt he's got any issues being ready between the tackles at the NFL level. They just gotta get him ready now. Make sure he knows his assignments basically. Nothing against Mack here, but Taylor's a big play back. He can flip things for you with just a seam at the line of scrimmage.
  7. I'm not a huge fan of Reich. But when you hire an OC to become your HC you are in for some growing pains. And when he's overseeing a QB transition, that can skew multiple years worth of records in terms of making it tough to evaluate his performance. So if I were the owner I'd give him the full season in 2020. There's a lot of football to be played, he's got a vet QB and a rookie RB who might be special, there's no reason to think he can't make a run.
  8. My opinion of Jax changed a lot after that game. I think they're going to be a good team this season. Minshew is scrappy and resourceful. He's got two nice wideouts this year too. That RB they found is something too, #30. His power style gives them a nice look with him and Minshew. Line looks solid. The roster is loaded with young and talented kids. And the Jags have one of the better offensive staffs around (Marrone was already good and they added Gruden who I have a ton of respect for). I think this opinion of them being a trash team is beginning to look like g
  9. I wasn't happy yesterday with Rivers' velocity on his ball. I'll admit that. But there at the end of the game, in spite of it all, homey was putting that ball on the money where it needed to be but guys around him couldn't finish. What they need to do is two things, neither of which have anything to do with Rivers... 1. Get Taylor rolling in the backfield. He's gonna be a guy who changes this offense for the better. 2. Get their defense figured out. Do those two things and everything is gonna work out. And oh by the way gonna giv
  10. Jay Gruden is an excellent OC. He'll make them resilient and better at sustaining drives than they should be. But he just doesn't have the roster. Time of possession in this one should be one sided along with the score.
  11. The Jags are a dumpster fire. I suspect they're tanking on purpose too btw, for the top pick in the draft and a QB. Which is hard to argue. Prob with that is Marrone is a good coach who is going to eat that particular <bleep> sandwich. I feel sorry for the guy. But either way I'll be surprised if week one isn't a big win for the Colts.
  12. The Colts' 2020 season is all about Rivers. He's going to have the pass pro he needs up front, a complimentary run game, and also has a good group of skill players around him in the offense. Strength of the offense is in the OL and the RB rooms. So I expect a unit that finishes around 10th or so in scoring, on the back of a dependable run threat and a savvy vet QB capitalizing on the play action. If Rivers plays very well then I think the unit could get up into that rarefied air, but either way this is a playoff offense. I think the question of how far the team goes
  13. I think as fans we sometimes forget the business side of the NFL exists. That's the side that attaches value to a recent pick based on the level of your investment, and it's why you see guys who go higher in the draft get more chances and more looks than the guys who go later or are UDFAs. This applies to the QBs as well so there was never really a battle between those two QBs... One was a significant investment, and the other is a talented kid who made some mistakes that they knew they would survive a cut and the waiver wire so they could stash him on the PS. My take on Kelly i
  14. He is a whole different order of threat than Mack. I'll be very surprised if teams aren't focusing him by week 4 or so. And if it wasn't for Mack I'd say he's a real good bet for ROY. Still might be even with Mack sharing carries.
  15. The over on 8.5 is easy money. This should be a 9 to 11 win team. Injuries btw are a given in terms of needing them to go your way. Part of the game tbh.
