You shouldn't have posted that. You know some forum members are still upset about Walden being here :lol:

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 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.

@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.

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.

    • My take   1. We overachieved last season. Period 2. We played at KC 3. TY limited the offense because he was so injured.  4. We played a very very good coach with time to prepare and his guys got some rest too and time to scout the team. Remember, Reich is well known to Reid as well by now.  5. Not having Hooker really mattered 6. Play calling was a bit blah 7. How does Vinny automatic miss those kicks? 8. A strip sack for us turns into a strip sack for them a few plays later, that hurt.  9. A young team who wasn’t supposed to be in the playoffs, let alone a second game in the playoffs had some factor here.  10. KC had a pretty good team   my concern from that game would be how poorly our run game was going forward. Kelly better play better than he did this season or I don’t see a 15 million/yr contract coming his way in Indy. I think with a healthy TY, the additions of DF and Cain and Paris and others should really boost that offense. An offense with TY, Paris, Doyle, EE and Mack, now that’s gonna be a tough group to match up with and defend. Run or pass, heck coach, idk what they are doing lol.    Gonna be fun to see this team evolve and have better back ups coming off the bench. I just hope we have enough beef in the middle to stop the run and I just hope that Kelly was hobbled in that KC game because it was one of his worst games that year. 
    • This again boils down to you hanging on to 'this is how it's always been done.' And you don't get that I don't care about that rationale. I think it can be done better. Which is why, in my first post in this thread, I said "to me, it's a no brainer." To me. It should be obvious that this is my stated preference, not me saying that teams that don't do it this way are stupid.   There should be nothing more that I have to say about that, except you continue to rely on that appeal to authority, and I'm telling you that 'how it's always been done' isn't legitimate reason for not examining potential alternatives. Not just in this area, but in everything.      You're missing an important detail, and I think it's because you've put my argument in a box and are unwilling to actually examine it on its merits.   As I said initially, and have said since, my argument is to make this change six months sooner, not six months later. "Imagine if we had fired Grigson in June 2016 instead of January 2017." Did you miss that part, again? What about "if the Texans had waited until January 2020 to fire Gaine..."?    I want him in asap. You want him asap, but not until January.   My statement about it being just one draft is referencing the worst case scenario, which is 'we just blew a draft cycle by letting a lame duck GM stay,' to which I say 'get over it, I'm okay with that if that's what it takes to get the guy I want in the building, with the staff he wants.' And that's where my argument about it potentially being easier to interview candidates in the down season after the draft is critical. The Jets wanted Joe Douglas; he evidently didn't want to entertain a move during draft season, but jumped at it in May/June. (There's the matter of moving his family during the school year, etc.) In theory, this approach could make it easier to interview good candidates. Whether you agree with that or not, whether it's important to you or not, this is mostly an aside. As I said, this was my response to the alarmist reaction of 'they just blew a draft!' Which I think is overstated, especially in the Texans' case.     Not at all. Again, if Ballard started in June 2016, he theoretically could have changed coaches a year sooner.      This is a hindsight fallacy. Go back to the Texans wanting to hire Caserio. I'm not arguing that he's going to be a great GM, I'm arguing that he's the guy they want to hire, and he's available in June. Same for the Jets and Douglas. The Chiefs and Veach.    We know that every person hired doesn't succeed. I never argued that they do. That's true of whoever you rush to hire in January. The point is that there is always a pool of qualified candidates from which to choose. I won't be retracting that, I firmly believe it, and I said it when the Colts were interviewing coaches in 2012, when they interviewed GMs in 2017, and when they interviewed coaches in 2018. You choosing to reject that is pretty ridiculous, to be honest. There are always qualified candidates. Choosing the right one is a different story.   And again, if there's one guy you really, desperately want, why wait until January to get him?     You could give me the benefit of the doubt and assume that if I'm saying it, I mean it. Especially this far into the discussion...    And going back to what I said earlier, this is and always has been my opinion. I'm not offering studies and conclusive evidence to support this opinion because it's a personal preference, it's what I think would be best (although I have offered evidence and rationale to support my opinion, you've just chosen to reject, for reasons I don't agree with).    I'm okay with the disagreement. What I find personally off-putting is the insistence that, because you don't understand my angle, it means I either haven't actually thought it through, or I don't actually believe it. As I said earlier, I understand that general consensus disagrees with my viewpoint, but that doesn't mean I'm just going to conform. The fact that I'm presenting an argument in earnest should be enough.
    • I'm an Iowa fan but I'd kind of like to see Michigan win that game so that it can maybe move back towards the appearance of a real rivalry.     That is unless an Ohio State victory would somehow help Iowa, in that situation I would root for the Buckeyes. 
    • 1. Turay - He looked pretty promising at times.   2a Nelson, 2b Leonard - They say that the biggest improvement comes in the 2nd year.  Amazing to think that 2 all pros could get better. 3. Rock Yan Sin  4. Hooker 5. Campbell
