  1. True. For that game. Maybe not for Minshew looking like Joe Montana, or even Wilson setting records. I blocked the Brees game out of my mind, but stil... All in all, I get what you're saying. Lack of talent caused by in game injuries killed us. But still, how do you let Andrews constantly beat you?
  2. He can still stretch the field and they'll respect him for it. So can Campbell. The biggest problem is our O-Line giving Wentz the time to take advantage of that speed. I know we have a lot of nay sayers out there, but I truly believe that Fisher will get better, Q and Smith will be back, and this offense will be humming by the middle of the season. I'm not as optimistic about the defense.
  3. In my mind, those threats to Buckner and Aaron were even worse. In those days, people had to write down their threats and send them in. Today, it's only takes a minute to send out a threat. You don't wait until your emotions or common sense settle in. It's more of a knee jerk reaction...done by jerks (and that's being kind).
  4. Drinking and twitter is nearly as bad as drinking and driving. I'm glad he has the right attitude and sees that the people who make those kinds of threats aren't very well balanced and may need help.
  5. I was going to post this, but you and others stated it well. Forget the OP, that’s ridiculous to say Wentz isn't playing well. He gets better every week. Any QB hungry team in the league would gladly give up their #1 pick for a proven franchise QB.
  6. I agree, but I don’t think any game in the NFL is a gimme. Kevin Bowen was saying someone has to be held accountable for the collapse last night, and everything that led to it. Draft picks, head coach play calling, and the D scheme. Im not sure what “accountable” actually means TBH. We aren’t fining Chris or Frank any time soon. maybe Fluse needs to look at the scheme that routinely lets good teams set record. I’ve always hated his D but I understand he’s dealing with the tools available. But bottom line (and sorry for the long post) everything stems from injuries and lack of practice. Who can be accountable for that?
  7. I'm with you. Even though the game had the feel of a fait accompli in the fourth Q, I thought they looked really good until then. Injuries aren't an excuse, they're a factor. Baltimore probably has more injuries than we do, but I think it's pretty plain to see they're a better coached team. All that said, I won't be surprised if the Colts are one of the best teams in the league by the end of the season when players get healthy. But it will probably be too late by then.
  8. I love Mack and I really do hope he gets back to form. But the Dolphins were potentially still in the game when they put in Mack in the game. If it weren't for the passes, the Dolphins get the ball back. Again, it's a minor nit that worked out. But let's face it, the Dolphins are a good team right now. Well, maybe that's why they did it. I'm the first to admit that Reich knows a lot more about the game and the teams potential than I do.
  9. Yeah, I'm guessing that's why they did it. But it's pretty obvious he's still not 100%. I would think they'd go with Wilkins and run the four minute offense. Minor complaint.
  10. If he wasn't injured, then it was pure stupidity. At this point, he's a better runner than Mack. There's no doubt he's a better receiver. I did love the two back set with Hines and Taylor. I wish they'd start every drive like that. Then if the D is using big bodies to stop the run, go right into a no huddle so they can't substitute and use Hines as the 3rd WR.
  11. TBH, I did not realize that. We have a lot of very high paid guys who are not playing or not playing like they're getting paid right now. All that being said, there are always ways to manipulate the cap.
  12. I’m not one of those “let’s get …” as soon as a player is available, but Gilmore was low cost - both draft pick and salary. Not to mention it’s a position of need. We’ve traded with them before, so I have to wonder why we didn’t go after him. In my mind, he’s a lot more valuable than Smith, who everyone wants.
  13. I must have quoted that line from Geddy Lee a thousand times, it’s always appropriate. That and “I’m a professional!” Glad I’m not the only one who remembers the McKenzie Brothers.
  14. I’ve been a Colts fan since 1967. As Seinfeld said, I followed the laundry.
