    Do I think Colts should move on from Vinatieri? Yes.


    Do I think it will happen? No. 


    Not this year, anyway. I mean... Parkey? is probably the best option out there, Mr BlockDoinkDoink himself.


    Vinny missing FG's is understandable. What isn't are the missing Extra Points. Vinny will have the self-awareness to retire at the end of the year (I hope). Sad thing is his leg strength is still there, but his inconsistency with striking the ball is not what I thought would go first. Even Manning's last year, his passes at least went to where he wanted to put them despite not having the strength to do much else

    I think we'll be just fine and I think/hope we'll see Jacoby get the ball out a little quicker more consistently as the season goes on


    Coming into the regular season I thought my biggest fear with Jacoby was his lack of touch. well, I was wrong there but what concerns me atm is his lack of anticipating recievers coming open. He will throw to the open man. I dont get a sense of him throwing a reciever open or throwing to a spot on a route, anticipating a WR making a cut. I think a team which plays a lot of man D will allow the rush to get home on him

    Although we didn't give up any sacks, KC still brought a lot of pressure to Jacoby, often times flushing him out of the pocket or getting him to the ground as he was getting the ball out.  I hope we can make some adjustments and pick up some blitz packages better as the year goes on, while no sacks is good there were a few hits on Jacoby that made me cringe.


    Counterpoint: The Colts currently lead the league in NOT allowing pressure within 3 seconds of the snap at 9.5ish%, with the next closest being something like in the 12second range. Our line is holding up just fine

  4. Yeah... no joke, Nelson is probably one of the top 5 NFL players overall this year so far. Donald is clear #1, then you got Mahomes, Mack, Quenton, then a handful of other players. Completely dominant.

    I love these breakdowns. I look forward to them every week. With that said, can someone teach Baldy how to use a screen capture program? I'm getting sea sick watching his handheld potato quality clips.


    He gets the clips together and then records it on his phone, its his "thing" unless he's doing it for the NFL network

    That said, it was in the low-mid 70's. 


    I was stationed at Camp Pendelton for 4 years. Never trust the recorded temp. It may be 72 degrees where you have the nice, wonderful Pacific breeze. But it'll be 110 in the spot where the wind cant reach

    But they went 12-4 last year with nearly the same line.



    They were also abused up front in each of their losses. Yes they scored points, because Philip Friggin Rivers and Keenan Allen. But we have the secondary (holy cow thats weird...) now to match up and limit them from just running up and down the field.


    Their defensive strength is their ends, and we have two tackles capable of limiting their impact opportunities, and the strength on the interior line now to allow Obi Jacoby to step up on time.


    Its going to be close, just because of Philip and we're on the road. But theres no reason we can't score on them, and theres no reason we cant limit their opportunities taking shots.

    Is the chargers line really that bad?

    Legit on paper, they are that bad.


    They're missing their best player on the lie, Okung.

    Last year they surrendered pressure on 30.8% of all passes, gave up 32 sacks

    4 of their current starters, per PFF, scored sub 62 on their scoring chart, and currently rates them 29th overall (They rate Colts #5)

    I expect a lot of VERY short passes with Rivers. I expect Autry, Huston, and Turay to FEAST. If I were the DC, I'd put Autry and Huston on the same side of the line

  9. @ Chargers: W - We're way more healthy

    @ Titans: W - We're still better

    Vs Falcons: L - They're dynamic
    Vs Raiders: W - Raiders.
    @ Chiefs: L - Chiefs
    Vs Texans: W - This team will collapse
    Vs Broncos: W - We're more talented, and this is when the Coaches best figure out Jacoby from here on out

    @ Steelers: Toss up - No Clue, but leaning 55-45 in favor Steelers
    Vs Dolphis: W - They're tanking for Tua

    Vs Jags: W - We split home/home

    Vs Titans: W - We're still better

    @ Bucs: W - They wont keep up
    @ Saints: L - They gud.

    Vs Panthers: L - Its the Odd year. Panthers will be better

    @ Jags: L - They're good at home vs us

    Tenative 9-6-1

  10. Luck, had he played out this contract and his next before retired, would have likely made 200+ million in his next contract. He has 2 years left on his current deal worth about 58mil.


    Luck is 28mil against the cap this year, idk about next. The Colts could attempt to recupe 12mil in signing bonus from Luck, but idk that they would. Hope they dont, after what Grigs did to Luck

  11. I thought it was Boehm for Nelson, and Andrews (60?) getting the starting nod?

    And I stand corrected: Kelly was in for at least 3 series.


    Still - I am relaxed til we see normal season otherwise

  12. Well 1, Mudd isnt the head O-Line coach. 2, last year we were game planning 10 days in advance for O-line protections, and adapting our play calling to match what our O-line was capable of handling. 3) We were without Kelly and Nelson tonight.


    I am of the R-E-L-A-X crowd until its a good sample size, IE 4 real games with real game plans, unless its obvious from the start

  13. For the Colts to score more than 43 points over the course of the pre-season.


    Weird NFL Stat IIRC: If your team fails to score at least 43 points during the pre-season since 1983, your season's success is capped at losing your first game in the playoffs.

    • Scoring 43 points does not mean a winning season or a lot of success
    • Scoring far less than 43 doesn't mean a losing season or not making the playoffs

    Scoring 43 or fewer points ONLY means that your team will not win a game in the playoffs

  14. Atm I think desire CB1, Moore CB2 in base
    Nickle: Desire CB1, Wilson CB2, Moore CB3

    Dime: Desire CB1, Wilson CB2, Rock CB3, Moore CB4


    Roles: Desire is probably going to get a lot of 1v1 with the #1 WR, while Moore's job is going to be to simply remove an asset as a target. This frees up the FS and SS to role coverages to Wilson and Rock. Think of it like a NE Defense: You cover the #1 WR with your best DB. Eliminate #2 option with double coverage, get the best matchups across the board and go from there

  15. This makes sense for several reasons: (Two, most of all really)


    1*) We have the cap space *NOW* to set the market. If Kenny averages out, its not a massive hit in the longer run

    2*) There two CB3's about to be PAID for the Chargers and for Denver. If Kenny were to out-play both of those guys next year, as a restricted Free Agent next year we're going to get into a massive bidding war. By nipping this is the butt early, we do ourselves a favor.

    3) He's clearly out-performing his current contract. I think he was slated to make... 345k next year? Reward our own.

    4) Salary cap hit gets lessened every year


    Theres a couple other reasons, but those get into the rah-rah/locker room/chopping wood anecdotes. Or, the NFLPA CBA agreement coming to an end in 2020


    The move makes sense, glad it was made

  16. I thought Seattle morphed more into a Single High safety (Cover 1) while combining Zone and Man to Man underneath, which would morph into Cover 1, 2, 3, or 4 depending on down/distance.


    Our biggest defensive weakness was a lack of having multiple DB looks, being able to switch it up really is vital. And having a healthy Hooker
