Sorry about the way the game is going, everyone. I expected the offense to struggle a lot, but thought the defense would be decent. I can't get the game here. Is it something the defense can turn around in upcoming weeks?

The defense is getting beat in every way possible, and now the special teams does this. Can we say Jim Caldwell and the coaching staff were unprepared for this game yet?

No offense guys, but i hope we do horrible this season and get good draft spot, so we can get the QB from stanford LUCK.

I'm sorry to say that we need way more than a QB. Front office has ridden Manning for too long. We need help all over the field. If we get a high pick we need to trade down.

This isn't going as well as I had hoped. Our line isn't doing a decent job and the two fumbles cost us dearly inside our twenty.

Personally, I don't know why we weren't just trying to run the ball more and why not just move Collins to the shot gun every play? We have nothing to lose and it should give him just a little more time to get the ball out.

Caldwell has done a good job today. We are lucky to have him or we might be get beat by 60 points. The players are upset because they felt like no one gave them a chance? Are you kidding me? Good thing they are playing made.....I would hate to see what this game would look like if they weren't playing mad.

We came into the season needing to improve our OL play, our defense and our special teams. To this point: Defense=LOUSY, OL=LOUSY, ST=LOUSY. These problems are not new, just a continuation of what we've seen in previous seasons. It's either personnel or coaching, but both are ultimately the responsibility of the front office.

Don't be fooled into thinking the return of Peyton Manning will turn this into a title contending team, the same goes for getting Andrew Luck. Without some serious changes, Peyton would be better off to hang it up and retire to some exotic location or get into coaching. My biggest fear is that Irsay won't have the stones to force such needed changes and we'll be back to having the first round of the draft being our most important day of the season....

It's not just the QB. It's the defense the coaching staff all the way to the front office. We need change because Peyton has hidden the flaws of this organization. I love Indy and the colts but this is seriously a joke. This is a poorly coached team.

Im sorry but you must me watching a different game than i am, because the offensive line is looking worse than they ever have, there is constant pressure, and just like in years past, the running backs are having to dodge defenders before they are even out of the backfield.

At some point, the GM will have to be held accountable. If you got Foster and Moala playing on the DL on your team in the NFL, it means you're in troubles.

Either Conner or Angerer could be a starter but not both at the same time. Both are being abused. The CBs/safeties group isnt too bad, above average compared to the NFL. DT and LBs tho are (and have been for years) in the bottom groups of the NFL.

That is what the Colt offensive line looks like without Manning calling the plays at the line.

I have said it many times before and I'll say it now. He protects them.

So, it's being reported that Manning purposely opted for a more painful and intrusive surgery so he could get back on the field...

Colts, it may be too late for this week, but please help him so that it's not for nothing.

    • 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.
