So we sucked as a team. But there were some players that were really were doing well. First off, Joe Addai and Delone Carter were about as good as it gets for our colts. And Antoine Bethea was a beast. Who else did you like? I had to study, with an exam today, so I wasn't concentrating on the game.

And do you think they'll adjust and get better as a team? To me, the o-line looked like it was improving. Maybe I'm just a homer, but it did seem to me like they got better yesterday. Not good enough, by any stretch, but better. Can they get it together with Collins under center?

There were a lot of guys that played well yesterday.

On Offensive - AC, Reitz, Saturder, Pollack (came in the 2nd quarter when Diem went down.) Addai, Carter, Wayne, Garcon, Collie, Clark, Eldridge.

On the defensive side, Freeney, Nevis, Mathis, Moala, Angerer, Wheeler, Bethea, Powers. (Bullitt and Conner had solid games but both made so key mistakes that lead to big plays. Bullitt was slow transitioning to the outside of his zone on the TD catch and then to miss that tackle in the 4th to allow the TD that put the game out of reach is not good and Conner is not very good in coverage.

ST - AV, MacAfee and Snow.

It looked to me like Saturday kept getting blown off or through. Bullitt made some dumb mistakes. But Wayne seemed to really be pulling out all the stops. Of course, he can't throw AND catch the ball!

Bullet was Garbage he gave up the 20+yard TD run to Hillis..Our Front 7 look great holdin Hillis to a 3.5 yard per rush and the Browns as a team to 3.1 yardsPerRush..Conner is the real deal..Freeney had a great game..Addai and Carter ran good, Carter was a great draft pick he looked fast ecspecially for his size and he is as srong as he looks..Powers, Bethea made some great tackles..really not to bad a game for the defense we just couldnt get into the endzo when it counted most.

I realize we have some defensive issues, but honestly, we are not built to win with our defense. We are built to maintain and to slow down the other team, in hopes of trading touchdowns (for us) with field goals (for them). Our Offense is what held us back. I put that directly on our Offensive Coordinator. With the weapons we still have on offense, a constant barrage of field goals is ridiculous. If we start with three touchdowns, instead of three field goals, we are not having this conversation. We ran the ball well! We need to develop some play action with our sprouting run game.

This coaching staff has been content to ride the coat tales of Peyton. We now can see what we truly have. We have several nice gentlemen, who are great mentors, but not great coaches. This has been, and will continue to be, a very interesting year. This team will grow from this in one form or another.

Castonzo has been a revelation. I haven't seen the guy make a single mistake in both games. He's also the only guy (not really sure about Diem) that hasn't allowed a sack, and nearly no pressures with that. We have to build our line around him.

The backs were really good, and complimented perfectly.

Finally on Defense there's not much to like. But Freeney had some good pressures today, Angerer played extremely solid at MIKE (watch out Brackett) and Bethea was his usual self, making great plays, particularly a play where he tackled Hillis for no gain, he completely destroyed him.

I think next year is going to be a great year for us if Peyton is back. The higher draft picks we will have will only make things better. Too early to say wait until next year? I don't think so unless someone is going to give us a quality qb this year or one that can run.

Go Colts!!

With our o-line, he needs to be able to run for his life!

Actually Garcon and Collie had 3 catches each and I am. I wasn't judging their game by their stats, it wasn't Collie's or Garcon's fault that Collins couldn't get them the ball at the right time. But both were running good routes and getting open. Both Collie and Garcon blocked well in the run game and if you think Eldridge's job is to catch passes then you lack a basic understanding of the Colts offense that explaining how he was an excellent blocker all game would not accomplish much.

IMO, the loss falls on the shoulders of 4 players, Collins, Link, Lacey and Bullitt (Bullitt played a solid game overall but he made two costly mistakes and each resulted in a TD)

    • continued...   2023 NFL Draft   Round 1– LCB Devon Witherspoon – makings of Sauce Gardner and Jalen Ramsey taken with the 4th and 5th picks, respectively in their draft classes in Round 1   Round 2 – QB Hendon Hooker – Hooker is one of my top 3 QBs in this class and the steal of the draft imho   Round 3 via WSH – WR Rashee Rice 4.36 40-yd, 74% blocking solid all around WR not a burner outside but very dangerous inside   Round 4 – TE Brevyn Spann-Ford (Minnesota) – sticking with players who can run-block the Colts add another weapon with both Rice and Spann-Ford.  Brevyn is the best run-blocking TE in the class.  He earned an 82.8 run-blocking. grade which was ranked 3rd in FBS this season.   Round 5 – RCB Riley Moss (Iowa) - last season has a zone defense coverage grade of 81.5.  Gilmore’s future replacement at RCB.   Round 6 – QB Jaren Hall (BYU) – like Hooker had a very productive college career   Round 7– SS Kaevon Merriweather (Iowa) - 88.1 PFF grade. Versus Ohio State he had a 79 PFF grade.  Good measurements all around except hand and a 4.50s 40-time.   Offensive outlook ’23 Roster: QB:  Hooker, Ehlinger, Hall RB: Taylor, Moss, Jackson WR: Pittman Jr, Pierce, Campbell, Dulin, Rice, Strachan, Smith TE: Woods, Granson, Ogletree, Spann-Ford LT: Raimann, Edoga, Murray LG: Nelson, Haynes OC: Kelly, French, Pinter RG: Davis, Fries, Haynes RT: Smith, Edoga   Defense outlook ’23 Roster: Edge:  Paye, Lewis, Kareem IDL: Buckner, Williams, Agim IDL:  Stewart, Hill, Johnson Edge: Odeyingbo, Winovich, Berry   WLB: Okereke, Stuard MLB: Leonard, Speed, Rhyne SLB:  Franklin, Domann   CB: Witherspoon, Rodgers, Flowers SS: Cross, Merriweather, Denbow FS: Bates III, Thomas II, Watts, Dabo CB: Gilmore, Moss, Brown
    • Continuing in the direction of @John Hammonds and the rest of us forum arm-chair GMs   Coaching Staff   HC –Shane Steichen – no stranger to young rookie QBs and the Colts will need that help along with the proven productions as an OC Steichen has had over the years.  Adding Super Bowl Champion to his resume is soon coming.   OC – Pete Carmichael (Saints) – Carmichael remains very close to Drew Brees and with Brees ties to his alma mater in West Lafayette just makes sense to renew his growth along with Steichen at the helm.     DC – Gus Bradley – continue to build on our defense and not keep changing it every year or two   Restructure OC Ryan Kelly’s base 2023 (9.125m) and 2024 (11.375m) to 4.75m and 5.75m, respectively   2023 Roster Cuts: QB Matt Ryan QB Nick Foles TE Mo Alie-Cox DB Kenny Moore FS Julian Blackmon   FA Additions: RG Nate Davis (Titans) 44m contract 16m G, 9.5m SB, 18m/4-year plus 500k game bonuses OG Phil Haynes (Seahawks) 9m SB, 5m G, 9.5m base/3-year FS Jessie Bates III (Cincy) – family still in Ft Wayne wishes to stay close to home, 6m SB, 18m G, 26m/4-year base DT Trysten Hill (Cardinals) 3m SB, 2m G, 1.5m/2-year base Edge Chase Winovich (Browns) 3m SB, 2m G, 1.75m/2-year base OT Chuma Edoga (Falcons) 3m SB, 1m G, 4.5m/2-year base   Own FA Resigned: DB Armani Watts 1-year 1.35m K Chase McLaughlin 1-year 2.1m P Matt Haack 1-year 1.2m Edge Khalid Kareem 1-year 950k CB Tony Brown 1-year 1.25m WR Ashton Dulin 1-year 2.5m Edge Tyquan Lewis 1-year 2.5m LB E.J. Speed  4m/2-year base, 2m G WR Parris Campbell 9m SB, 9m G, base 24m/3-year base LB Bobby Okereke 9m SB, 9m G, base, 22m/3-year base       Rumors have it that the Panthers intend to jump ahead of the Colts and trade with Arizona.  Trading away RB Christian McCaffrey gave them additional draft capital.  The hiring of Reich just adds insult to injury, and he now has a change to stick it to the man who cut ties with him mid-year and take the QB the Colts coveted the most...or was it just draft smoke screen?  Maybe the real reason why the Colts had representation at the Kentucky-Tennessee game to watch both quarterbacks in action.  Hooker and the Vols dominated the Wildcats that day and left a very strong impression with the Colts brass.  Hooker is an older quarterback prospect but has excelled facing tough SEC competition showcasing his resume the past two seasons.  McKee from Stanford might have lightning-quick processing but has a bad history of throwing interceptions and hasn’t improved his reads.  We already had too many recent QBs throw too many INTs and its never a good formula for NFL success.   Denver just hired Payton as their HC and now the Saints have P29.  Its possible they take McKee but more likely they take Edge Will McDonald IV (Iowa St) to replace Marcus Davenport. Knowing we still don't have a QB on our roster besides Ehlinger expect the Saints to move ahead of the Colts in Round 2 to draft McKee.    
    • Callahan is Peyton's guy more than Jeff Saturday is Peyton's guy?  Peyton would get involved and recommend Callahan over Jeff?
    • Seems like they are not getting publicity but here are some measurements: https://www.the33rdteam.com/category/nfl-draft/2023-senior-bowl-weigh-in-measurement-results-for-nfl-prospects/      
    • Is it just me, it have measurements NOT been done yet?!?    I thought they were typically done Monday of the week,  but they’re not up on the website yet.     Seems strange to me…..
