    I agree. To me he looks pro ready. 100 yards in his 2nd start is impressive no matter how anyone tries to discredit it.

    I mean he’s just the first Colts rookie running back to do it since Vick Ballard did it and the second to do it since Joseph Addai.

  2. I thought he bounced back from his one ugly miss last week.  4 for 4 on field goals and 2 fo 2 on extra points.  Even a 44 yarder to help build some confidence too.

    I get you

       In a different Thread people got upset because I said the PC injury changed the way FR called the game

    But people HAVE to be negative and over critical or they might have to enjoy something and can’t pretend to be the smartest person in the room...

  4. It was nice having a back that took three or four guys to bring down and was getting an extra two to three yards a carry because he wouldn’t go down vs other teams doing that to the Colts for a change.

    This team has been abysmal at adjusting game plans to in game injuries, both our guys and the opponents, for way too damn long now.  One, maybe two guys go down, and we're one hundred percent in wing it mode....

    There was no reason to change.  What they were doing was working.

    It's amazing how loud it is after a loss, then so few show up after a win... 

     

    Pretty dominant win, at that. 

    And even then some of them still want to be negative.  Kinda shows what some are really about.  The Colts weren’t perfect, no team is ever, but they were pretty darn good today.

    The amount of injuries league wide is very troubling. 

    Big names dropping.

     

    3 potential season injuries for the Colts already is very worrisome. Not small names either, prominent role players. Not even to mention Doyle and Burton.

     

    Lack of live reps amd preparations have to be playing major role I would think.

    Yes, as someone else said I think this happened the last time there was no pre-season either.

    I can’t believe the whining here. The Colts kicked some butt today. Looked good on both sides of the ball. They’ve lost two key offensive players in Mack and Campbell. And they didn’t miss a beat today. How about a little acknowledgement on how they overcame, adapted, and took charge? 

    Some think it’s their job to focus on the negative.  All you can do is ignore them if that’s all they do.

    Buckner came up big on that safety really shifted the momentum Colts way

    He also tied his career high with 4 QB hits.  The Vikings had 2 as a team.  The Colts owned the lines today and Buckner was a big reason why on defense.

    If I recall,  Blackmon was hurt very very late into his last college season, but had surgery almost immediately. Depending on just what the ACL injury intent was, it’s entirely possible to be cleared for running again within 3 months. 3-6 is the average, and a LOT depends on what method they used to reconstruct it. Cadavers are usually a quicker recovery but have some cons. Using parts of other ligaments lengthens the recovery time. From experience, about 12 months to run, even longer to get back to speed. But everyone heals at different rates. 

    They said today he was hurt in the bowl game.  That’s pretty impressive to comeback as fast as he did.  I remember when he was drafted the experts said he’d miss most of the first half of the season at least.

    Well of course...

     

     Not sure what that is referring to though?

     

    Rocky said he doesn't consider players bust who get injured, he considers them bust if their talent don't stack up to high expectations.

     

    He was referring to Hooker(top 15 pick)

    I listed counter Oden(#1 pick, albeit basketball) to get his thoughts in that situation.

     

    There is no expectations from undrafted guys or any mention about them.?

    I missed read I thought you said Odum.

  12. Taylor had the hot hand and when he needed a rest Wilkins who is more like him came in because the Vikings couldn’t stop that running set.  Hines played in passing situations but I have a feeling the Vikings were looking for him and he wasn’t open.  That’s why guys like Mo having a good game is a good thing it will start to open up guys like Hines who other teams are keying on.

    Can anyone name 1 former Ohia State Suckeye drafted by the Colts that that did not get hurt or retire way too early!? I cant!

    Lewis.  He had a sack today.

    Trade Hooker for a bag a peanuts and I’ll be happy! Blackmon showed to have a tendency to be around a play unlike Maleak! The secondary for once looked like they can keep a wr in front of them! Im not sure if the Vikes are that bad or Whatever, but the Colts secondary looked great!

    I think a little of both.  The secondary clearly looked motivated and they did adjust by being a bit more aggressive.  However the Vikings have no real WRs outside of one guy.  Also this is why the Redskins didn’t commit to Cousins.  He will look really good at times but he has too many games like this where he’s just flat awful.

    Good call to make him a focal point of the gameplan. The Vikings didn’t seem to think we would look to him at all, but we did and it paid off. Always liked Mo, he’s never been a player you look at as a liability on the field. 
     

    I’m also pretty sure his big catch today is longer than any of Doyle’s career.
     

    Today is why I never really saw the need to bring in Burton. I think Mo is ready to be #2 and more involved weekly.

    Can be a 1000+ yard a year TE.
     

    What a beast.

     

    Has all the tools. Caught 5 out of 6 for over 100 yards today.

    Let’s hold off on that until he starts doing it after teams game plan for him.  Had a nice game today for sure but I doubt the Vikings thought he would be that big of a part of the Colts offense.  If he can do it week in and week out like I hope he can then the Colts have something.
