  1. Neither. Perhaps a bit older (late 50s-early 60s) but didn’t seem to have any issue getting up for restroom/concessions. Not that everyone I’ve encountered is like that but I have felt in general it’s a way more conservative/docile crowd then what I’m used to back home.
  2. Came in from NJ yesterday for our annual Colts game and had two gentlemen behind us ask us to stop standing on third down because they didn’t want to stand and couldn’t see. Pretty much sums up the general enthusiasm of fans here from my experiences over the last 5 years.
  3. The Colts seem to play pretty well at home but I definitely would agree from a noise perspective. I’ve been to several NFL stadiums and Lucas Oil is by far the tamest/quietest of the bunch. It always amazes me each year I’m there.
  4. I was just talking to a friend about how I haven't been impressed with his punting ability. He's got to be around in the bottom or at least below average in avg yards per punt. He definitely doesn't switch that field position on a team as much as one would like. But hey, if he's an accurate place kicker, why not.
  5. Agree with the Hoyer Brissett take as well. I’m just not sold on the guy at all. I think that game ended up way closer then it would’ve been if Brissett was in.
  6. "And then we’ve gotta get more consistent out of our extra point and field goal units — and I say the entire unit, not just one player. I know people sometimes find this hard to believe, but one of the great things about football is it’s 11 players on the field, and they all have to execute their jobs for things to go right." I know Vinny deserves some criticism but I agree with Chris here. Our blocking, snapping and holding has not been up to par AT ALL. That entire unit needs to step up. I'm not sold on our snapper or Rigo as the holder.
  7. I think you are seeing his snaps decreased as a product of Jacoby at QB and the run heavy scheme lends itself more to having Jack in there because he is definitely the better blocker. I think Ebron's bread and butter are those intermediate 10-15 yard routes that he transforms into more. This happens to be an area I think Jacoby has struggled in significantly. Even when he's had guys wide open he's thrown some questionable balls (think of that completion to JD in Denver game where Jack had to essentially lay out for it). Often his throws are under 10 yards with the occasional bomb. This hurts players like Ebron. IMO you could immediately see a difference from a sheer anticipating the throw standpoint as soon as Hoyer stepped in. That anticipation is incredibly important in those intermediate routes. I think you'll see MUCH more involvement from the TE's in that intermediate zone this week if Hoyer starts.
  8. Just said this in the other thread but I thought Hoyer played great other then the pick-6, which was more of a coverage issue rather then a poorly thrown ball. I think the offense looked way smoother with Hoyer out there. He was decisive and the intermediate throws he made were something we haven't seen much of this year. That sideline bomb to Pascal was a beautiful throw. I honestly thought the Colts should've let him sling it a little more instead of running on 1st & 2nd.
  9. I honestly thought the offense ran smoother with Hoyer. LOVED his throws to the intermediate routes and he laid some nicely thrown deep passes as well.
  10. We need more two TE sets, maybe this will force us. Losing Ty changes the little dynamic play that we have on offense. Hopefully this isn't another Raiders game.
  11. His only good moments were the final minutes of the first and second half. He needs to stop holding on to ball for an eternity.
  12. Good game by him. Better game by the offensive line. Dude had a year to throw back there, we need him to get through progressions quicker.
  13. Also would choose Peyton. Him with this offensive line, my lord. The guy just loves football, not a single ounce of quit in him.
  14. Jets are going to beat the Pats on Monday. They aren’t invincible and their offense is a weakness.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. Let's see if Reich can take a page out of Andy Reid's book and destroy the Texans coming off the bye. Time to take some time and get Hilton, Leonard & Hooker healthy.
  20. After that game, I ordered a "Run the damn ball" hat. Debating buying his jersey as well to wear to the Jags game in November.
  21. Wouldn't be surprised if this is the best game we've played all year from an offensive standpoint.
