Colts Vs, Bengals Preseason Game Night Thread

Recommended Posts

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"

He's made some good throws. Some awful ones. Great adjustments by Brooks, he better have hit Wayne. So far, pretty decent showing, but with his recent games, this looks golden.

yes wayne was wide open he took the diffcult play

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.

lol. They probably should. It is actually good to see him getting some pressure. What I have noticed is he has very few moves. He does the same thing pretty much every time. It is shear physical ability that gets pressure. I honestly think if he had any moves, he could be good.

This is the most I've ever seen from him. Impressed, but his conditioning looked off.

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.?

    • Dallas won't let him go.  They traded a 1st round pick for him and even if he isn't worth it, Dallas would still resign him
    • Sorry 2006, but you get 4 Pinocchios :-). Lawrence's true freshman year was a lot better than Luck's redshirt freshman year, and sophomore years are shaping up to be very similar, which Lawrence has at least 2 games to go (the numbers include bowls for both)   Keep in mind Lawrence is only a true Soph, and Luck took a redshirt (so he had a year advantage in learning the system, and the stats below).   Here's their comparative stats.   Frosh Year Lawrence 65%, 3280 yards, 8.3 avg, 30/4 TD/INT ratio, 157.6 PR Luck (red shirt) 56%, 2575, 8.9 avg, 13/4, 143.5 PR   Soph Year (Lawrence's soph year isn't done yet) Lawrence 69%, 2870 yards, 9.1 avg, 30/8, 171.5 PR Luck 70%, 3338 yards, 9.0 avg, 32/8, 170 PR
    • Right there with you brother. They’re the last team I’d want to see in the playoffs... 
    • Stats farther below   Quick Summary - Buc's O vs Colts D Passing - The Bucs have the 4th most passing yards per game in the league while we're the 11th best defending the pass. Winston is a bit hobbled, gets sacked a lot, and throws the most INTs in the league. They have a bottom 10 OL, and will be missing their starting RG. Their best WR is a bit hobbled. Rushing - They are not the best rushing team (22nd), and Winston shouldn't be much of a running threat either with his knee.    Quick Summary - Buc's D vs Colts O Passing - One the worst passing Ds (31st) vs one of the worst passing Os (26th). TB blitzs more than most teams in the NFL, yet aren't very successful in pressuring the QB and average in INTs. It's really all about containing Suh. While not starters, TB has hobbled #2 rotational DBs. Will we see Campbell back and will he torch a very bad group of DBs? Rushing - 4th best rushing O meets 2nd best rushing D. If we rush well tomorrow, I'll be surprised given they are already good, and will likely do everything they can to make JB beat them. I'd hate to see Mack get hurt trying to come back quickly.   The Bottom Line Indy should win the game regardless of injuries. TB is near the worst passing D in the league, and our guys will be open. The only question is will JB see them. Given we should be limited in the running game, it's another great opportunity (3rd in 3 weeks) for JB to crush a horrible pass D. On D, Winston and their #1 WR are a bit hobbled, and we should not have too much problem keeping him in check even without Moore. I could see both Sack and INT success tomorrow.    Prediction - I expect the Colts D to hold TB to 24 or under, and could see our guys getting some picks and sacks. I have zero idea what to expect on O. JB should have a career day.. but..., should have done better the last two weeks vs bad pass Ds. If Mack and/or the other RBs have success tomorrow, then WOW vs a very good run D.    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Top Five Bolded Blue' Bottom Five Bolded Red Injured Starters Bolded Green   Buc's Offense 5th in total yards per game  4th in passing yards per game  22nd in total rushing yards per game  4th in total points per game  13th in Red Zone Offense %  32nd best in INTs thrown  24th best in sacks taken  Out - Cappa G, Miller WR, Logan RB Questionable  -  Banged up  - Godwin WR (shin) - was FP, Winston QB (knee) - was FP VS Colts Defense 13th in total yards per game allowed  11th in passing yards allowed  9th in rushing yards allowed  11th in points per game allowed  9th in Red Zone Defense %  18th best in INTs  17th best in sacks  26th in blitz % (23.3%) 18th in QB hurry %  17th in total QB pressure % (22.2%) Out - Moore CB/N,  Questionable  - Hooker S (Foot), Ya-Sin (ankle) Banged up  -      Buc's Defense 17th in total yards per game allowed  31st in passing yards allowed  2nd in rushing yards allowed  29th in points per game allowed  13th in Red Zone Defense %  16th best in INTs  14th best in sacks  2nd in blitz % (43.3%) 29th in QB hurry %  25th in total QB pressure (21.5%) Out - Nelson OLB Questionable  - Dean CB (shoulder) - was FP, Steward DB (knee) - was FP Banged up  - Pierre-Paul OLB (knee) - was LP VS Colts Offense 19th in total yards per game  26th in passing yards per game  4th in total rushing yards per game  17th in total points per game  8th in Red Zone Offense %  16th best in INTs thrown  10th best in sacks taken  Out - Hilton WR Questionable  - Banged up  - Mack RB (hand) - was FP, Alie-Cox TE (thumb) was FP, Campbell WR (hand) was FP,       
    • Great news I'd rather have Hooper for the other tight end. With Cox also around, we wouldn't need to draft a tight end this year or probably next. I wonder how early is too early to extend Leonard and Nelson - it will probably get more expensive every year.
