  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. They were not kidding about getting TY more changes in the redzone. Dude has been on fire. Really hope the quad isn't too bad, offense looks completely different with him out there on passing plays.
  6. 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.
  7. Does anyone have a clip of him walking out onto the field for the first FG attempt? The roar from the crowd was awesome. I'd love to see it again.

    Crazy to think AV's leg is the only thing standing between us and 2-0. Will be a very telling weekend IMO.
  9. He's nothing flashy but he is very decisive and hits the holes. Doesn't have high end speed but a solid back-up RB that can have a decent YPR.
  10. I'm actually pretty surprised we waived him. I will be more surprised if no one else pick's him up.
  11. 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.
  12. Some of the posts in this thread are the most drastic over reactions for a second year player who barely played in preseason and reigning DROY that I’ve ever seen. Takes a season to build trust and 1-2 plays to completely break it eh? Show some damn patience and open your eyes. He’s not always going to be the star of the game with non stop big plays. He’s young and will go through his lumps.

    AFC South

    If we win on Sunday, we are tied for the Division lead. I'll take that :).
  14. I'll tell you he looked leagues better then Cam Newton did last night.
  15. I love that Peyton is around the complex. Really hope a day comes when he's there as an official part of the front office/coaching staff. He's such a great football mind that this team would improve with him around.
  16. NJ residents represent! Fond memories of AC, went to school down that way. Excited I don't have to stream the game this weekend.
  17. First game jitters resorting to a couple of longer 3rd down runs. I agree he's not a running QB by any means but he most certainly can break off a 15-20 yard run, especially with some of our deep threats spacing the field.
  18. I actually think this is going to be a great game for our defense and Jacoby is going to surprise many out of the gate. 31-14 Colts. Jacoby 3 TDs, 310 yards passing, 50 yards rushing. Hilton, Doyle, Mack & Hines with TDs. Malik Hooker with 1 INT.
  19. I honestly think Jacoby throws a better deep ball and will be more consistent then Luck. Luck was incredible but I felt he was also incredibly streaky at times. Really interested to see how this season turns out.
  20. Maybe Phillip is just very competent at running the scout team and simulating game plans.
  21. You know what's great? He suffered through that 2017 season but that season got us so many of the impact players he's going to lead this season.
  22. What about a $1,000 bet for the division crown? I think it’s very doable.
  23. Can you imagine if Luck decided to return and Peyton Manning re-joined the organization in a front office roll at the same time? Indianapolis would explode.
  24. This screams to me that the team felt the injury wasn't that severe and he could play/practice on it and somewhat tried pushing him in a direction. All in or all out, no in between.
