  1. In my opinion this Patriots team is very beatable and way more vulnerable then ever before. They have a great defense but their offense is far from special, even with #12. Did you see some of his passes last night? Age is catching. You play press on Edelman and bring the pressure, you will feast on TB all day. Anytime someone got close to him he was crumbling. Little movement in the pocket. 

     

    I think a lot of eyes will open over their next 7 games. They have a stretch where they play the Ravens, Eagles, Cowboys, Texans & Chiefs. I could easily see all 5 of those games being losses fro them. 


  2. Patriots defense is solid this year but they are far and away being overrated thus far. They've played some of the absolute worst defenses in the league. The one legitimate defense (BUF) they played made Tom Brady look awful and they nearly lost to Josh Allen & Matt Barkley...

     

    I have no doubt that we could beats the Patriots this year if we play our game.

    Brissett is going to need to do more through the air in my opinion. We wont run the ball up and down Houstons back like we did KC. It will be there but hes going to need a better day through the air to go with that.

     

    Completely agree with this. Just posted in another thread but our offense as a whole has been under performing the last couple of games. I know we have injuries but we have to start taking advantage of our chances and putting TDs on the board.

    A case that big q could be in the discussion for mvp of the league, 

     

    First he came in and transformed the entire attitude, demeanor and play of the most important position group in the game for the colts. 

     

    Second because of his presence, and for the reasons stated above, we are recognized as having the best or one of the best o-lines in football. 

     

    Third because our o-line is so dominant, QB has more time to pass and better passing lanes and we can impose our will to “Run the damn ball”, which we all know what that does to opposing defenses. 

     

    Fourth for all the reasons above, we sustain drives, keep opposing defense on the field getting worn down, keep opposing offense on the sideline, and our defense rested. 

     

    Fifth he is the ultimate team guy, i.e.  first down the field to pick up his players and always around the ball after the play. 

     

    All attributable to the presence of big q (in my opinion). He has a profound impact on every phase of the game.  

     

     

    Agree with all of this. Our offensive line is playing incredibly well. I feel our offense as a whole is under performing though. We had so many chances on Sunday and didn't capitalize anywhere near as much as we should've.

    We should just forfeit. Don’t take a chance of getting anymore guys hurt. BTW I am just joking. This is the same thing that happened in NE lady here. Except I think that was a Thursday night game on a short week.

     

    Wouldn't be surprised if this is the best game we've played all year from an offensive standpoint.

    Who do you cut though. I am not cutting pascal because how important he is in the blocking scheme and he has stepped up. You can’t cut Rogers unless someone has been stepping up in practice on PR.

     

    He also made a couple pretty nice catches on Sunday. Felt like he was one of the only receivers catching the ball.

    And going from Great to Good is your Franchise QB retiring right before the season. 

     

    We need to be thankful that we are still a pretty solid football team. Most winning teams could go from great to awful after losing their starting QB. Meanwhile, we are still going to be a very very competitive team this entire year. 

     

    With the way our team is setup, there aren't many teams in the NFL that we are incapable of beating. We aren't completely set up to stop high power offenses just yet but our gameplans and strategy can definitely make those games more competitive then some think.

  8. The most interesting part of this podcast for me was when he was speaking with Zak Keefer. Keefer mentioned that when they started 1-5 last year it was actually Jacoby who called the players only meeting. That struck me as an odd thing for backup QB to do. 
     

    I really think the jealousy Andrew mentioned in his speech wasn’t completely resolved and was a significant part of his retirement.

  9. He definitely needs to improve on his reads but I think that will come with more actual game time at game speed. I think overall my biggest areas I'd like him to improve are:

     

    -Reading through his progressions a bit quicker

    -Don't stare down  receivers, use a little theatrics to pause the safeties/LBs

    -Get the ball out quicker on broken plays

     

    Overall, I love the way he's played and am excited to see the improvements over the year.

    Seems like Margus Hunts been kind of dead out there to me.  I don't have any stats but that's what it's felt like. 

     

    I was thinking that too. He was all over the place last year and this year I feel like I've barely heard/seen him. Sometimes that's a good thing but not sure if he's making plays or not. 


  11. I'm conflicted at the severity of this injury. His recent comments make it sound to me that he isn't going to play. I wonder if they had tests done yesterday/today. 

     

    On one hand at the point he left the game we just went up 20-3 and it's been said that he actually aggravated the injury plays earlier. So he was obviously still able to run/produce with it bothering him but at that point we were dominating, so how pre-cautionary was it? 

     

    On the other hand, I know he's a fierce competitor and think that he would never keep himself out of the game unless absolutely necessary. I know the doctors may have pushed his hand a bit but I really hope this isn't a bigger issue then they are letting on. 

     

    The passing game actually looked so fluid with him in that first half. Everyone was getting involved and there was a rhythm that I haven't seen from this team in a long time.

    Watson can be electric. I could see him playing out if his mind and wining a game like that. They have way better of a chance of hanging with KC then the colts I think.

     

    I don't. The way you play a high powered team like KC is exactly how teams used to play the late 2000's Colt's. Keeping their offense off the field by having 7-9 min drives and being very very physical.

     

    Houston's offensive line isn't good enough to sustain long drives like that all game IMO. They very much remind me of the Colt's team from Lucks first couple of years. Dynamic QB, average RBs, porous OL (minus a spot or two) and decent skill players.

  13. Have you guys seen some of the backup's playing in recent games in this league? Not many of them look as athletic or accurate as CK. No doubt he would be picked up, especially after a decently strong showing in preseason. 

     

    Sounds like he's practicing with the team today. My bet is he is on the 53 and we will carry 3 QB's for the rest of the year.
