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.

    • Actually if you look at the entire picture since the divisions got re-aligned in 2002 we would be the only team out of the 4 teams (others being the Texans, Titans, and Jags) that have even been relevant. Those other teams have never even played in a SB (Titans did in 1999) but I am talking since the AFC South was formed. We have been to 2 SB's and won 1. No other teams have ever been scared of the Texans, Titans, or Jags I would be safe to say but when we had Peyton that were scared poopless to face us and even when we had a healthy Luck teams were scared as well. In 2018 when we won the playoff game at Houston with Luck that showed everyone that we were the better team when healthy. Houston was loaded that season with Watson, Hopkins, Watt, and Clowney and the game was over at halftime with Luck healthy.   As long as we make the playoffs it doesn't even bother me that we don't win the division. A lot of teams that win their division stink it up in the playoffs. I would rather make a Title Game or a SB than win my division if I had to choose between the choices. 
    • Based on this, we can actually get the Browns' 1st rounder No.26 and pick No.91 for our pick No.21 if we move back just 5 spots, I like it     I have read Rich Hill's articles on PatsPulpit. He is good with numbers. Of course, there will always be a Patriots bias on a Patriots SB Nation article, especially when there are gray areas for interpretation but the quality of his numbers he puts out is a good one. Similarly, I like Scott Kacsmar articles too.    Ultimately, in trades, two hands need to be willing to clap based on a value agreed. The rest is pundit and draft day fan speak fodder.
    • There have been times in the recent years, where the secondary looked confused and out of position. I hope this coach can eliminate those mistakes. Maybe it was just that the players were young or not used to playing together. 
    • If he plays bad and we start something like 1-4, this forum will implode. Rivers was good this past season for a 38 yr old, Luck was very good when he played, Peyton was a top 3 QB of all-time, who knows what we have here in reality? Can Wentz play at least as good as Rivers did or will he be like JB = a .500 QB?? 
    • Drafting Montez Sweat would have been Sweet instead of trading down. Hopefully, Rock and Banogu develop and show something in 2021.
