  1. If the colts had this offensive line or something close, Luck would still be playing. As for the calls, there is no way one team can be called for that many holds during one series or drives when in fact there are holds going on on every play on both sides of the ball. The officials picked a pivotal time in that game to crack down on the holding. 2 minutes later they ignore the colts being tackled in the endzone preventing Rodgers from being sacked and delivering a 48 yard reception. I believe this was done to lengthen the game to sell more commercial time. If it was the Colts that were d
  2. Colts need to abandon the two tight end jumbo sets for short yardage on the goal line. Everyone knows your going to run it between the tackles. There is no threat from the pass or running wide. another poster mentioned running "in a phone booth" formation. It really doesn't work between the 20's either. All the running backs are shifty and fast, they just get bogged down behind 2 tons of humanity. When they spread it out there are more running lanes. From thursdays game, this was the only flaw I saw with the play calling. Is Rivers too old to play under center? I think running from the I
  3. Brissett will need to get paid again.
  4. everyone knows the Colts always get screwed at home games by the refs.
  5. I did not see the game. i have been reading the comments from everyone. after seeing the slowmotion footage I would reluctantly agree with the call. There was visual evidence of the defender back pedalling 3 steps before loosing the ball before hitting the ground. The only part I wonder about is the recovery part?
  6. Make Lamar Jackson throw 30 times and let Leonard be the qb spy and of course, stop the run. colts 31 ravens 7.
  7. Taylor may not be ready to be the guy. Running backs that are good enough to be the guy, would be taking full advantage of this situation and make everyone forget about Mack. To Me, Mack is a middle of the road running back as is the rest of the backs they have. There is no clear better back on this club. Good to great backs do well in the transition from college. That being said, the phone booth formations should only be on the goal line. Not a lot of room to run. Spread things out and stretch the defense. Wilkins could be a good back if he is used enough and gets into a rythem. Think ab
  8. Last year hilton had Brissett at QB. not good. this year he is being held and double teamed all day long. As long as teams feel they have to hold him, he still has great speed and great rout running. as long as the young up and coming wr's cant stay on the field, there is no threat for his job. He will be fine.
  9. During last weeks loss, the team showed the ability to change the momentum of the game when it had too. They came up short as sometime you do. This week they ran into an angry Bengal team that is better than their record shows. The Colts showed they have plenty of gas in the tank. The offense got rolling and started scoring touchdowns instead of field goals. We may have just saw the turning point going from ok to a very good team. Right now the Colts look like a Harbaugh team with a defense that will be as good as the offense allows them to be. Its pretty exciting to watch. If the Colts scored
  10. He is wearing that number well! He is going to special in this league.
  11. Tell Me this. Kelly never got to play with the first stringers, it was against scrubs in the preseason. He can't be any good. now we have this Eason guy. he will just be another Jeff George, maybe? Maybe not. He has not even played in a live game and somehow the front office is exited and impressed. The same front office that gave brissett a bunch of money for absolutely no return.
  12. the act of typing a response on this "forum" is a reflection of one's opinion. In 10 plus years on this "thing" I have seen no proof to back up any comments from anyone on here ever. Nor will there ever be. Get a life. this is pure entertainment and nothing more.
  13. Maybe its time for a change in philosophy or thinking. player gets hurt, send him to centra care and cut them a settlement check. Move on. Frank gore was the only player I know of who blew out both knees and continued on with a good career.
  14. Its hard to get exited about players these days. They get hurt pretty regularly. Fountain won't last long.
  15. At the end of the year. Add up those pretty darn good performances. maybe 3 or 4?
  16. That the problem being a colts fan. Too much wondering thru the desert. About every 20 years or so the Colts get good enough to make a showing. When Harbough was in town, I met him and Marchibroda playing golf in ST. Augustine. They must have thought I was crazy with my enthusiasm. Harbaugh gave me a colts hat and they both sighned it! I had not seen a Colts hat since the 70's.
  17. Everyone got used to the colts out scoring teams and playing with a lead. Here we go. the colts defense was so bad, Hoyer looked like MVP material during practice!
  18. give the team a break. This is a f$$$** year for everyone.
  19. I really enjoy the folks who say "its only the first game, the fellas will do better, the sky is not falling". well, this will quickly turn into," we are 4 - 4. we can still make the playoffs at 8-8 if we can get healthy". Time fly's. Who are you going to beat at 8-8? The 8-8 Jaguars? I don't think so.....
  20. yeh. The Colts rarely beat either one of these guys with peyton at the helm? Think back to last year with JB.
  21. I did not get to watch game. We usually get the jaguar games here in central Florida. I tried to not get pulled into the imminent playoff parade atmosphere. I did write that the weather may have a negative affect in being so hot and sticky. Despite that I jumped on here at 4:26 expecting a win. The results shocked me but they should not have. This has not been a regular season start after 4 preseason games. I think too many players and coaches heads are in the BLM and all the other distractions. I don't believe this will be a season worth remembering for any team when all said a
  22. Just be happy to win this game and not get all dinged up in the process. I live just south of j-ville. It is 97 degrees in the shade with 98 percent humidity. It has been this way for the last 90 days. Hell it is 87 right now and the sun set an hour ago. It will be tough on the players. Everyone will get playing time.
