I wouldn't expect a LB to be able to cover Dwayne Allen in the first place let alone a 3-4 OLB, just Walden being in position to force Allen to make a outstanding catch is ok with me

why won't nfl network show any other team than the saints??

Since Peyton left, there not real sure there's a team in Indy anymore. Besides we need more Hernandez and Tebow coverage. You can't see Hernandez being led out of his house in handcuffs enough times!

@ryandaryk: Montori Hughes lining up opposite of Redding on the line.

@ryandaryk: Montori is looking impressive. He's sticking next to Redding at all times off the field. #colts #coltscamp

@andrewmishler: Werner is playing some first-team. Left side with his hands in the dirt with Mathis on the right standing up. Redding, RJF in the middle.

@andrewmishler: Red zone drills. Perfect back shoulder pass by Luck, and an even better catch by Coby Fleeener for a TD.

@andrewmishler: Vontae Davis had some great pass breakups earlier covering Wayne 1-on-1.

@gmbremer: Darius Butler intercepts Luck for the first time. #ColtsCamp

@andrewmishler: These are all passing drills right now, but Havili is still mixing in with the 1s. Sheppard and Conner are rotating as starters.

Vontae has his hands full covering one of the best to ever do it. But sounds like he's responding well

I wonder how well Griff Whalen is doing.

@andrewmishler: LaVon Brazill and Griff Whalen running as the second-team receivers. .

@andrewmishler: Noteworthy catch by Griff Whalen. One-handed 40-yarder in the end zone. Crowd loved it.

All I can find for Whalen

Lotta quick routes, interested in hearing about deep balls.

@andrewmishler: There's the first deep pass from Luck to DHB over the middle, but Toler breaks it up. Looked like he held him from my angle.

I'll give Toler a pass on that. DHB runs a 4.3 that's dangerous

@TribStarTJames: Plays of the practice so far: CB Cassius Vaughn interception return for a TD off Matt Hasselbeck pass; great diving sideline catch by Wayne.

@TribStarTJames: Other plays of the afternoon, TD catch by Hilton on great throw by Luck; Fleener back shoulder TD catch from Luck; Allen back shoulder catch

@TribStarTJames: RB Ahmad Bradshaw made an appearance at the afternoon practice. Watching from the sidelines. No boot on his surgically-repaired foot.

Also

@TribStarTJames: On DAllen's back shoulder catch during 7-on-7 drill, came against OLB Erik Walden, who had great coverage on him. Super effort from Allen.

Before somebody like Brad Wells blows this up, it is thought to be just a blister.

@TribStarTJames: Allen, by the way, left practice and had some treatment in the trainers tent. The injury didnt look to be serious. Thought to be a blister.

@andrewmishler: Werner has exclusively played on the left side so far. Mathis moves to the right when he does. Mathis plays on left, Walden right otherwise.

The left side is the rush LB side right? If so, I was right about my prediction/what Id do for Werner

It's good they're letting him put his hand in the dirt. Give him what he's use to.

@andrewmishler: And just as I hit send, Luck drops his best pass of the day into Wayne's hands. Deep fade route between two defenders.

Another nice grab for Whalen:

@andrewmishler: Offense really slowed down over the last 20 minutes until Whalen made a tough catch over the middle for about 30 yards. He's looked great.

    • As I said, it's never about "can you fit under the cap?", or "do you spend all your cap space?" Because you can fit under the cap certainly. Actually, you have to, that's the rule. And most teams do spend their cap space. That's the point. Use it all if possible. The Patriots use it all usually, the Steelers use it all usually, etc. Most teams do. Actually, the Colts do use almost all of their 2019 cap space too. (The 2019 total sum of contracts is a bit over 184 million, just a few mills under the cap. That "40ish cap space" is already nothing else but the rollovers from previous years.)   But, even with spending all the cap space, there is good cap management, and there is bad cap management. The Patriots spend all of their cap space, and they manage it very effectively. The Colts (now) spend all of their (excluding rollover), and I belive Ballard manages the cap very effectively. But the Jags didn't. They went over the line, and sacrifized their future effectiveness by getting into bidding wars and signing pricey free agents one after another. The problem wasn't Norwell. If it was only him, that would be ok. The problem was, that they also signed Moncrief for 10M, Jenkins for 6M, Church for 7M, traded for Hyde and payed him 4M and he barely saw the field, etc, etc. The list is very long.      I never said that having elite talents heading into their second contract is a burden. You are right, that is a blessing. Actually, that is the best that can happen to a team. That's what Ballard want's to do! The problem is, that the Jaguars got into a situation, when there is a very good chance that they cannot sign their own guys. And their roster got thin, because they could not refill it this offseason enough. They got worse. And they will become even worse in 2020, because they won't be able to retain their talent level. Yes, they can cut Campbell, they can cut Bouye, and they can trade Ngakogue, and fit under the cap. And then? Who will play at CB, who will play at DE? A mediocre somebody. So, instead of improving their team, they actually made it worse. That's the bad management. Cap wise and talent wise as well. (However, I do agree, that they kinda draft OK recently - one year exceptionally well, but still OK since then, so their talent infusion is somewhat OK. What they screwed up big time is cap management.)   Btw, this is an old story repeating itself. Coughlin has been with the Jags before. And he drove them into cap hell before. It was bad, it cost them years to recover. He's just doing it all over again. He is (was) a very good coach, but terrible at managing the cap.
    • https://www.1070thefan.com/blogs/kevins-corner/colts-coverage/colts-say-no-trade-offers-sticking-jacoby-brissett-backup?fbclid=IwAR0IGDgC2r_pBbt7tUzbQjxiBv0zfXiUyxQtxziGhcsvuaRHI3Or6xVIT74   I like Reich's quotes here:  “It’s impossible for me to have a higher opinion of Jacoby than I do,” Reich says. “I said it last year, I think he’s a top 20 quarterback. I still say that. After watching him for a year, this guy’s really good.   “I tell Chris all the time, ‘Please don’t let him go. I don’t care what anybody offers him. Don’t let him go.’ I love Jacoby. The problem is now I’ve gotten to know Jacoby and, at some point, I hope that it works out for Jacoby. But not now.”
    • How is the number of UDFAs significant to anything?     For the record, the Colts actually signed 11 UDFAs...JAC signed 21.    BTW, here are some of the "better teams" and the number of UDFAs this year:   HOU - 20 KC - 23 CHI - 22 NO -17 LAR - 19 LAC - 19   I see no clear correlation between "better teams", thin rosters and UDFAs. There is more of a correlation between the number of draft picks and UDFAs, if anything. Those teams typically had less draft picks...and therefore...more roster spots to give to UDFAs. And UDFAs understand this as well...and see a better path to making a roster if a draft pick is not in their way.   In 2018, the Colts...in the first year of a new offensive and defensive scheme...coming off a 4-win season...signed only 10 UDFAs...because they had 11 draft picks...which makes sense. But that roster was by no means deep.
