  1. Well, it definitely comes off as whiny when ya start blaming injuries. Sure took credit for beating up on Denver’s backup QB, though!
  2. Well, the Lions came within two points, so we should have a chance. It’s funny, though. I went to NFL Pickwatch, which compiles all expert picks across the internet. Only 2% of the experts picked the Colts, so I tried to find which one picked us to win. Turns out, the only one I found was a chicken that somehow makes NFL predictions. He had less than a 50% success rate when picking straight up… Nevertheless: Colts - 27 Ravens- 20
  3. I was a fan near Baltimore. They moved. I moved. No matter - I’ll always be a Colt fan.
  4. Whataya think: Fisher at LT and Davenport at RT?
  5. You mean WHEN he outperforms his draft capital…
  6. A runaway victory by the Colts - at least a 14 pt. win. Marlon Mack roars back, earning nearly as many carries as Taylor. Rock Ya-Sin settles in as a starter and doesn’t stink. Dallas. They played toe-to-toe with TB last night. Would have liked to see the end if they called TB for the obvious push off right in front of the ref on the last drive… Jets. Not a great roster, but I really believe in Zach Wilson…
  7. Amazed at the pessimism here. I look at the two teams, and the Colts seem to be the clearly superior team. I guess you could give huge points for Russell Wilson, who’s impossible to not like. But at Indy in the opener , I don’t see how the Seahawks are actually favored…
  8. I’d take a 4th rounder for Wilkins, whose contract is up after the year anyway. Maybe only a 5th…
  9. Pain! seriously, I’ll say: Indy - 31 Sea - 17
  10. First official practice report is due Wed. evening, is it?
  11. The thing about question marks is that they often have answers, which are sometimes exclamation points. KC a couple of years ago had a question mark that scared all predictors off in untested 2nd year QB Mahomes. How’d that work out for them? I mean this formula is probably a good observation and all, but there are many different formulas to win a SB. I’m pretty sure Baltimore did it without any offensive playmakers…
  12. Yeah, I went in to edit out two typos in my post, and somehow I instead edited a quote of my own post. Lol, the thing wouldn’t let me delete the new post…
  13. Yeah, who cares? I think Indy is the most underrated team in the league by far right now. Based on the loss of Wentz and Nelson, the Colts dropped 10 places in most power rankings and week 1 odds flipped from 2-point favorites over Seattle to 2-point underdogs. Wentz and Nelson will both play now, but neither of those measures have bounced back very much. I also think this narrative of “has the team improved?” is overplayed. Teams that make overpriced, splashy additions (which rarely work out) are given credit for improving, while teams like the Colts who improve organically from the hard work of their high character players are said to have failed to improve. Never really know until you see them play. Things that could improve the team: - Kwity having a DROY-level season. - Taylor having a whole season on a par with last year’s second half. - Parris producing splash YAC plays. - Okereke stepping up. - Pittman having a 2nd-year jump. The possibilities are endless. But one other think to throw out: who says we need to improve a ton? 11-5 last year and outplayed the hottest team in the league in the playoff loss. The team was already in the thick of the competition last year…
  14. Yeah, I don’t know, but I was practically quoting from the articles I read. I think maybe they brought in a lot of options to try to improve the secondary, making it a crowded competition…
  15. FWIW, I googled KC’s TC practice reports and it seems that Keyes had a very good camp this year. He seems to have come down with a lot of INTs in TC. He was always a long shot due to a crowded position group. But he was a lot like Chachere was for us - did everything an unheralded camp body could possibly do to make the team…
  16. Yeah, he’ll land on a PS or active roster somewhere soon…
  17. New guys sound positionally versatile too…
  18. Are any of our Dlinemen hurt? We kept a ton. Wonder if any will be “injured” before those guys come off the COVID list…
  19. So, it looks like we avoided having to end some players’ season by possibly gaming that COVID list. The four players on that list let us keep Ehlinger, Hilton, and Pinter, who can now make it to the IR without ending their season when the COVID players come back . Hope it was not a violation of the rules! Seems Belichikian…
  20. Yeah, if Strachan was cut, you’d have to wonder why we bothered selecting him. He did everything possible to make the team. That’d be a Grigson-level move…
