Yes I get upset every now and then when he drops a pass but Manning is not on the field and this year is hectic. Besides he always makes up for it. I think hes an incredible wide receiver..IMO he was the mvp in the jets vs colts afc championship..He is still young and has a lot of potential. Dont cut him because of a few mistakes every now and then. reggie wayne dropped an easy pass in the game v.s. the packers, does that mean hes no good? absolutely not. maybe his helmet was loose and blocked his vision when the ball came down ? maybe he drank too much orange juice ? crap happens. as long as he doesnt drop passes every game we will be fine. deff one of the top 10 wide receivers in my opinion..

OUR cornerbacks suck. this includes powers, and formerly hayden and lacey. yeah so hayden had a magical moment in 41. but he wasnt consistent in short yardage which always get us. They are the most disappointing part of the team, even more then our poor defense overall. I keep praying every year, they wake up and realize its 3rd and 1 in the game. Youre in prevent you gave them 5 friggin yards cushion , are u kidding me? 1 friggin yard is all they need . the wide receiver can just stand there and catch the ball, drink a glass of juice, smoke a ciggarette, and read a magazine then take a step for a first down by the time the cornerbacks move up when they should be attached to that body. they are the reason we lost the jets game last year. even a blind man can see that coming. I call it every time and im sick of being right.

I blamed the loss to the Jets on Dan Muir aka fat Albert. Shobnn Greenes just kept moving the chain as if he was Jerome Bettis or something. I might be optimistic but the defensive linbe this yr should be talented enough to make up some slack by the dbs. BTW Powers does not suck dude watch him. Tell me why you think he sucks just curious.

We have nobody except Powers amongst our DBs that have good experience. Why in the world did we have to let our most consistent DB go. Im sure it had something to do with money but IMO this was an above avg DB he was good. Unlike Jacob Lacey.

this is what our fo does,we draft good players develop them untill they are great and then when they want paid for what they are worth we let them go somewhere else and be stars.meanwhile we sign an undrafted 1.98 player and expect him to perform as an all pro.we dont manage our cap as well as some teams "pats and philly"

Yea I always hate that cushion they give. Drives me nuts...part of the reason other teams can get away with it is better DBs or better DL like mention before. I wish if they are going to give cushion atleast be 5 and no more than that unless its one of those hail mary plays that you know is going to happen.

our coaches have to big allow a big cushion or we would get beat more than 5 or 10 yards, one corner is doing the best he can, we get him cheap!which corner is it.?

    • I'd be shocked if we kept three QBs on the 53
    • On any given team, the 3rd and 4th string guys are fighting for table scraps.      But this year on the Colts, it should be even harder to take care of our 3/4.    Because both our 1st and 2nd string are new to the team and the playbook.   So both Ryan and Foles need every rep they can get.   They won’t be giving up any of theirs.      So Ehlinger and Coan are going to have to make the best of a difficult situation.   It may not be fair, but in carefully scripted practices there's only so much to go around. 
    • I agree losing Hill is a huge loss. I do think they take a tiny step back, but they could also take a step forward.    Not a bad pass catching group at all...    RB - CEH is a good catching RB, not that he needs it though TE - Kelce - don't need to say anything here   WR - MVS - solid and quality X JuJu - likely does better with Mahomes over Big Ben...  Hardman - productive guy, and should take a step forward now that he's no longer in Hill's shadow Moore - rook, but I like his chances.   A lot of teams would like to have that group
    • Using unit totals of  RB - 60 TE - 55 WR - 135   Keeping things simple, and only including the top 4 TEs on the depth chart.   Note, most of the depth chart chatter has Ogletree over Woods at this point, and climbing..... citing Ogletree's hands and route running as being more advanced.    I'd also add that there's a good chance that Granson is again used in more of a TE/HB/slot hybrid role, than traditional TE. That doesn't guarantee anything though. We've heard reports of shovels in camp (Hybrid use) but also heard reports of corner routes. 
    • Well it's probably a lost cause to discuss this further then.  Bottom line is you can have one stud wideout but teams will figure out how to remove him on key downs that decide the game.  In today's league you need multiple matchups to allow you to break down a defense and isolate who you want on who for a given look and dismantle them.  If you get to that four threat range and have a QB who can dish it most defenses are gonna break down and the offense will get a fancy nickname in history.   Let me ask you this...  Do you think the Chiefs are a great offense this year?   If you say yes by assumption of they're great every year, I would refer you to their roster.  Who are their top threats in the passing game.  How deep do you think they go?   Way I see it Kelce is a top weapon.  You can ruin players days with him.  But after him there's some question marks.  Hardman?  Ok.  Sure.  Not a huge fan but he's a guy you can get some isolations with.  After that, though, I'm not seeing special.  Maybe I'm too high and missing someone, but I'm seeing two good weapons and an offense that is praying they hit on Sky Moore.  I'd say they go two deep.  Which is not a great offense btw.  So I'd expect their offensive throughput to dip in 2022, and when it does all the talking heads will bag on Mahomes but really it will be they had to run the ball more and protect longer to survive.
