Qb Kerry Collins Will 'play A Lot' In Final Preseason Game


Recommended Posts

They just paid for him, why wouldn't they get some playing time out of him. Besides, I think the I'm a little curious to see what the Colts just bought. Kinda like getting a new toy. One that won't be as good as Manning (obviously).

I think it's more important that our starting O-line is getting more time. They looked very good against the Pack. The more the play together the better they'll protect that #18 guy whenever he gets back.

Collins getting hit a few times? Won't bother me a bit.

He gave an interview on channel 13 news. Said this is the toughest playbook he has ever seen.

Interesting. From what I've heard, the Colts offense is based on simplicity and execution. They have a small handful of plays, but they can run each of them very well, so they are ready for any situation that the defense presents...handful being a relative term. I'm sure they have many many plays in their playbook, but relative to the rest of the league, it is smaller

I don't about now but back in the Marvin Harrison days they showed a diagram of the passing plays and while the offense itself was vanilla..the routes were of many..almost like a tree with branches. I imagine some of those are still there. That could be what he's referring to.

He won't have any weapons will he? I know in week 4 of the pre-season starters don't really play that much at all. This week is all about giving the non-starters one last chance to compete for a job. I think playing time will definitely be valuable for Collins to get a crash course with the play book. However, in the pre-season NFL teams only show a small fraction of their plays that they would run in the regular season. I'm certainly glad he will be playing and getting some reps, but I'm not going to be too hopeful coming into this last pre-season game. I feel Collins' most important days will be the 9 days after the Bengals game where he can continue to practice and learn the playbook.

    • I think some of that and why he has regressed is because of that ACL injury. That is a confidence issue with him now. He wants to keep that toe bent so if he gets hit in the leg, it will bend the way it needs to. He's got to trust again. That's why he made a lot of those bad throws this year because he didn't trust his line to protect him.   The messed up thing about that is he got his knee busted on a run play diving for 6.    Godspeed young man.

    • Not sure if we're better, but I think we have more hope. I for one, am just happy we checked the box. And I'm growing more confident it works out.
    • Not sure if it was ever a "character" issue. Sounds more like attitude to me. Purely my opinion, but he's a smart guy, has likely read everything written about him, and knows he needs to embrace this chance. If he chokes at Indy, he's likely done. Hoping he's self aware, and comes in with a fresh perspective and attitude. Regardless, I'm not sure fixing him, is really a monumental task the more I read, and the more I think about things. If his mechanics fell apart in one year, he should be able to fix them in an offseason. Sounds like he just got sloppy, and that was compounded by a lot of external things. Or one could say a lot of external things created a negative situation, and he became sloppy (perhaps stopped caring).   Whatever it is/was, I'm just not near as worried as I once was. Like I said, I think he'll return to at minimum 2019 form, and not sure Reich will have a lot to do with it. I think the freshness (new team, new city) will create a new attitude. And the OL and overall quality of the team in Indy will resonate.   I think I'm back to being more concerned about Reich lol... I don't buy all the QB whisperer stuff. Sure he's had musical chairs to deal with, but overall I credit his conservative scheme more than anything. And that's great when you're working with chaos or musical chairs. Not sure it'll be good enough to go deep once the chaos and musical chairs stop.
    • With some of the stuff that was going on with the Eagles it's not unreasonable of me to think it didn't have an effect on the whole QB/coaches/GM relationships with each other. And none of it being good for the team. Regardless I am not going to point a finger at anybody. I don't care. All I care about is from now forward.  IMO we are a better team right now that we were a few days ago.
