  1. Yeah I remember his rookie year the coaches wouldn’t play him because he wasn’t doing the things needed in practice to get out there and hinted he had a maturity problem. I think that causes most of his issues.
  2. Yes it was. The Colts lines dominated this game and that meant the Colts could play keep away on offense and on defense the rag tag secondary wasn’t asked to hold up for long because Mahomes didn’t have time to run around until things broke down. Some of that was because he was banged up but a lot of that was because of the Colts pass rush.
  3. Right I agree with you on Funch being a number two. TY is the clear number one. Campbell has 10 catches for 61 yards. Not bad for a rookie with little action in the pre-season but not enough to be a number two either. Cain is a mix of poor passes and just not being able to get open. His routes are not very good if you watch them. The other two guys are Pascel who is a second year guy and Rogers who has been a total ghost and not in a good way. He’s also the old man of the group with this being his fourth season. I wouldn’t exactly call them experienced pass catchers. They are fringe roster guys who at most might be able to be your number three.
  4. I am not being dishonest. You can’t be dishonest either and pretend like the Colts secondary wasn’t in shambles. Like I said before at one point tonight the whole starting secondary was out and the Colts were down to three rookies, one a guy just signed off the practice squad Friday, a corner turned into a safety and a second year undrafted guy. For a team that has a QB like Mahomes he should have been able to shred it even if his top two WRs are out. He couldn’t. Why? The Colts front four got after him and best him up. There is nothing wrong with give the Colts defense credit for a job well done. So yes KC was banged up but let’s stop pretending the Colts didn’t have injuries of their own to overcome and injuries or not the Colts fronts ability to control the line on both sides of the ball are why the Colts won. If you don’t want to agree with that then we will have to agree to disagree.
  5. Look at the last line in your previous post. The only guy you mentioned in your post in Funch so if you weren’t taking about him I am not sure who else you were taking about because you just said We didn’t draft him so I assumed it was Funch since he’s the only guy you mentioned. I agree the pre-season isn’t always a good indicator but in this case it’s the little we have to go on with Funch that and one regular season game where he was decent. He preformed like a vet WR which was the point I was getting at. More rookies are going to play like Cain and Campbell have and struggle early. I think they need another proven vet or a very high draft pick, like a first rounder. So I guess I should amend my statement to more project rookie WRs aren’t going to fix this. Now does it have to be Funch going forward? No. That’s why he’s here on a one year prove it deal. Still I would expect the Colts bring in another vet WR this off-season if they don’t keep Funch.
  6. He was also able to get out of the pocket later in the game and started running into sacks because the Colts d-line took over. You don’t think KC could say they lucked out with the whole Colts starting secondary being hurt at one point and their all-pro linebacker and one of their DTs being out? Lets not forget coming into this game both teams couldn’t stop the run they were 31st and 32nd against the run. The Colts shut KC’s run down and got after Mahomes, which is what lead to him getting hobbled in the first place, while the Colts exploited KC’s weakness against the run and their QB wasn’t sacked once. This game, like most games, was won in the trenches and the Colts lines won this game.
  7. He did very well in the pre-season with Jacoby and made some nice catches in the Chargers game before getting hurt. He certainty looked more comfortable out there with Jacoby than anyone not named TY playing WR has. Also the Colts didn’t draft Funch and they don’t expect him to be a number one. That’s TY. They expected him to be the number two and his absence is showing.
  8. You are correct. If the team is out of timeouts it’s just an officials timeout. I believe the clock restarts on the officials whistle but in the situation like tonight the Chiefs were ready to go the moment the clock started.
  9. The zone worked because the Colts front four was in MaHomes lap most of the game. I don’t care how mobile you are if you have defenders in your face the moment you snap the ball you are going to have struggles. Both teams were banged up. The Colts did a better job over coming their injuries. They deserve credit for that.
  10. I don’t think he would be. Brissett has one more year on his deal. I think it’s reasonable to think the Colts will need to see more from him before committing to him long term. So drafting another QB to groom makes sense. It also makes sense when you consider Hoyer isn’t getting any younger so no matter what you will need to address the QB spot somehow for the future even if it’s just as a backup.
  11. They need better play from the QB and WR position but it shouldn’t ruin a big win tonight. It’s fair to point out and be discussed. With that said, the defense played out of this world good, especially with the secondary so beat up, and the line and running game remain the strength of this team. I think it’s very possible to be both thrilled your team won a game and did something’s very well to do it but at the same time be concerned about something that has shown its head more than once this season.
  12. He’s a game manger. An effective one but still that’s what he is. You can win with that if you have a good defense and a good running game, which is how the Colts won tonight. However, if you need your QB to go win you a game more times than not they will fail. Jacoby has the rest of this year to show he can develop and I hope he does, but he has to read the field better than he does. He can’t just live on dump offs a lone. He looks to get really timed after INTs and is too scared he will make another mistake. Now with that said, the young WRs aren’t helping him much. They don’t get open that well and teams have figured out to blanket and TY and say beat us with anyone else we dare you and to this point no one has stepped up. I hope the Colts take a long look at the rookies this year. Fromm is my favorite but I am also no NFL scout.
  13. More rookie WRs aren’t going to fix this. That’s pretty much what they have now in Campbell and Cain. What’s hurting them is the lack of experienced WRs like Hilton. That’s why Funchess being out is so bad. Guys are being asked to step into roles they aren’t ready for.
  14. Rookies develop and don’t stay rookies forever. Jacoby has the rest of this year to show he can develop too. If he does, and for the record I hope he does, then he will continue to be the guy. However, if he keeps having issues reading the field and only throws underneath passes teams are going to figure it out at some point and it’s going to cost the Colts games.
  15. I believe they are the league just doesn’t publicize it. They do it in private to make it seem like they have their officials backs which they have to do, even when they are wrong, or the officials will lose their authority on the field.
  16. The refs have made it known they don’t like the new rule because it’s always been a judgement call so they are making it clear they just aren’t going to overturn those calls. McAfee has been railing about this on his show this past week and he’s right. Personally I think Goodell needs to tell the head officials I don’t care if you don’t like the rule enforce it or I will find someone who will.
  17. Yes KC had injuries but so did the Colts at one point tonight the whole starting secondary for the Colts was hurt and they were playing three rookies, a third year corner at safety and a second year safety who was undrafted. They deserve credit for holding Mahomes to one TD as does the defensive line that returned tonight and owned KC’s front. We saw last week how bad a zone looks if you get zero pressure. We saw tonight why it’s good against high powered offenses if you get a pass rush. Sure KC has injuries but so did the Colts D and the Colts D did a better job over coming them than KC did. As for Jacoby I agree with you. He’s showing himself to be a game manager. An effective one but a game manger none the less. I hope the Colts take a hard look at the QBs in this draft. Fromm is my personal favorite but I am also not a NFL scout either.
  18. Tonight was probably his best game as a Colt. Still it seems like you can count on him for some form of PI once a game and he was kinda lucky not to get one at the end of the game. Yes it would have been questionable but he puts himself in those spots too often. Still he took away KC’s biggest weapon tonight and he deserves praise for that. If KC beats you with a second year WR catching perfect throws that no other QB can make you just tip your cap to them. Wilson taking away Kelce for the most part was huge.
  19. As they should have. I was scratching my head with them being so pass happy early tonight because KC was 32nd in the league vs the run and the Colts line and run game is the strength of the team. Still it was working so I wasn’t going to argue with it.
  20. Doubt they will but the injury to Turay looked bad. That’s going to hurt the pass rush.
  21. The injury to funchess is really hurting them. None of these guys are ready to be a number two. With that said Brissett doesn’t help them at times. There was at least one play tonight where Collinsworth pointed out Cain was wide open in the middle and Jacoby just didn’t see him because he took the check down first. Collinsworth also pointed out he had time to survey the field and wasn’t doing it and was still dumping it fast which was often the short throws. Now, I will say it’s not all on Jacoby either, these guys, outside of TY, aren’t doing a great job getting open. Jacoby was 1 of 7 on passes “down the field tonight”. If I had those kinds of numbers because guys can’t get open I’d take the check down too. Honestly, right now the second best WR on the team is probably Pascel and he’s the guy a lot of people wanted cut.
  22. They explained the guy who went out of bounds later. If the PI caused him to go out of bounds he can catch it. Clearly that’s a judgement call but there was a case to be made that’s what made him go out of bounds. Also, it wasn’t reviewed because the Colts didn’t challenge it.
  23. This crew is very flag happy. They did the Packers Eagles game a couple of weeks ago and I thought it then and then tonight just confirmed it. The INT that was overturned was really bad, if that’s clear and obvious then so was the PI on TY and that should have been over turned. Realistically the reason the PI wasn’t overturned is because the officials don’t like that their judgement can be challenged it’s becoming clear they are trying to kill this rule by just not overturning anything. Personally I think Goodell should step in and tell his head of officials follow the rules or I will find someone who will.
  24. Maybe but he was pretty awful in the pre-season against backups
  25. I’ve never been a fan but I am not sure who else you have this season. He’s pretty much the fourth cornerback as it is.
