I know you're just kidding; 63% isn't garbage. But I tend to think of this as a positive. I think it says something about our secondary that this offense isn't quite clicking just yet. Both Luck and Hasselbeck were reportedly a little off early on.

Yeah.. Darius Butler continuing his ball-hawking ways from last year.... I've been saying all offseason that he is very underrated... I forget what opposing QBs ratings were when throwing at him last season, but it was ungodly awful... Darius is a bona fide, top flight corner... He hasn't the size of a Toler or Davis, but he's got guts and hands. I don't see how people can diss our secondary when the nickel corner is good enough to be the 2nd corner on most NFL teams...

@KBowenColts: Andrew Luck a strong finish to 11-on-11 work, with a string of 8 straight passes but Darius Butler gets the last laugh with a goal line pick

@KBowenColts: T.Y. Hilton the highlight offensively on Day Two with several catches, including an over the shoulder diving grab near the far sideline.

@KBowenColts: On the other side of the ball, Butler and Kavell Conner had their hands in multiple pass deflections

The great news to me here is Conner.....better at the run, but making plays in coverage.  Great news!!!  :)

@gmbremer: Andrew Luck finishes 27-43 with no TDs and an INT. Darius Butler got the INT again. #ColtsCamp

Butler was one step away from not being in the league....Grigs snagged him and he just continues to handle the situation at hand....loving Butler in this secondary!!!   :colts:  :colts:

I'm not concerned about the passing numbers, our secondary will be one of the best in the league this year. It's been awhile since we had the combination of talent and coaching back there we do now.

 

Fleener's going to make a lot of people eat crow this year. If he's healthy, he will develop into a force and really put the overreaction to his rookie season in perspective.

 

I 'v believed  from the git go as soon as Pep Hamilton was on board all our Stanford players would shine ..

@TribStarTJames: Post practice injury report: NT Martin Tevasue (shoulder), TE Justice Cunningham (cramps), NT Montori Hughes (cramps). DT KHeard not serious

Thank you it's just cramps mostly, don't know how severe Tevasue shoulder is though, with McKinney sitting out for now we need the bodies at NT for practice

Will be using much more 2TE sets this year then 3WR sets because Fleener/Allen is more consistent duo then DHB/TY. It also makes us a better running team and keeps Luck completion % high because both of the TE's have great hands. Arians rarely used 2TE sets last year but this year with Pep i think it'll be 70/30 ratio of 2Te's being on the field. Even if we go 5WR sets , Fleener and Allen will be on the field together.The offense will look very similar to what the Patriots was last year and here are some of the formations you'll most likely see us in.

Yeah to quote Allen Iverson, "We talking' bout practice?"

I'm not worried.

Is it 1pm today that practice gets underway? Anyone know if NFL Network are showing bits & bobs?

They should change NFL network to Redskins network. That would make more sense because thats all they're showing.

Was just read SB Nation - Ryan Grigson's interview  1 question was about our diamond in the rough I still have'nt heard how the Colts found  Adongo but he's a lump of clay with at this point no bad habits to unlearn . Just tell him to smear the guy with the ball this should be fun to watch .. :blueshoe:

 

 

Q: How steep a curve does Adongo have?

A: Well, right now he's the 90th man on the roster. He's a guy we brought in that has a very raw skill set, obviously. You watch him throw the football for the first time, in about a nanosecond you say, 'Well, he's not a quarterback.' He had never thrown a football before. But once you start seeing him move around with those long limbs, and you see the type of competitor and really the traits he has as a human being and just as an athlete, you have something to work with. You basically have a lump of clay for these coaches to work with and it's really gratifying to see. We brought him in for a work out, 17 hours from Johannesburg - that's before the connection - [and] you see those coaches kinda beaming, knowing that they have a completely, like our linebackers coach said, a truly blank canvas, because it's not like he came from a small school or he came from a guy that hadn't played since high school. We're talking about a guy that hasn't been able to learn any bad habits because he's never played. I told him anything he's doing that's "a bad habit", he must learn from [the media].

Yes, that last sentence was a joke, for those that need help with humor.

Phillip B Wilson @pwilson24 1h

#Colts' best offensive player today couldn't be more obvious. TE Coby Fleener has been exceptional.

 

Phillip B Wilson @pwilson24 1h

Can't help but be bothered by a Darrius Heyward-Bey drop of deep ball today. Just one play, but #Colts WR had two drops Sunday.

 

Kyle J. Rodriguez @ColtsAuth_Kyle 2h

DHB basically was handed the #2 spot. Not impossible to play his way out of it.

 

Kyle J. Rodriguez @ColtsAuth_Kyle 2h

Heyward-Bey is more talented than Donnie Avery, but that doesn't mean he'll frustrate fans any less.

 

Kyle J. Rodriguez @ColtsAuth_Kyle 2h

That being said, they like to move Hilton around, use him in the slot. Don't think they want to use him in the X role.

Andrew Luck led a crisply-paced practice and hit 27-of-43 passes (not counting a spike) for one touchdown. He hit Coby Fleener for a score. Luck is 49-of-77 for three TDs in 7-on-7 or 11-on-11 drills in two days. Luck hit nine straight passes in 11-on-11 work near the end of practice. Luck hit Reggie Wayne on a checkdown play late in practice with Wayne being at least the third option, a goal of Pep Hamilton's this season.-colts.com

No. It's probably going to be a linebacker, Lutrus, Spears, Rayford.

    • Willis - the 4th round pick they traded up to get will be lucky to make the 53?  Man that is highly questionable. I’d say he is much closer to a lock to make the roster than be cut prior to opening day. 
    • Well Im back been a long haul , my wife being blind had rotator cuff surgery and been in bad turn at same time so my cups been full.  But look lol the Central is just about where I left it. 162 games tells the story . Cards Cubs Brewers all right there together.
    • Faulk was a great player, but he was never a pure grind out yards type running back. Edge was.   James is a huge part of why the offense exploded in 1999 after we traded Faulk & drafted James. The play action to Edge/ bomb over the top to Harrison was absolutely LETHAL 
    • As you have noticed,  I have taken a long time to respond.   Apologies in advance,  my response is long....   Everything you think I "overstated" I personally think I understated.     And I think all the arguments you used to make a case that the spring is more ideal than the winter is hugely overstated.   Look at the last sentence of your post...    how you describe "looking at the bigger picture and taking your time..."        Says who?      Who says an owner didn't look at the bigger picture in December as a disappointing season was coming to an end and that a decision was rushed?    That's entirely written by you as opinion based on zero known facts.    And it's your interpretation that better decisions can be made in the spring.   Huh?    When it's too late to fire the HC and his staff that gave you the disappointing previous season that got the GM fired in the first place.    Now, your new GM has to deal with a HC and staff that he didn't hire.   Now everyone in the building is walking on pins and neeedles wondering if they'll get fired or be retained.   So,  all the advantages of doing those decisions in winter of Y1 for the new GM,  now have to be done in winter of Y2.     So, if they're going to be done,  how is it better to flush a year down the drain and do it the following year?   I see lots of opinion,  and very little fact.    You've tossed out a number of interesting names that are available now....    nice names and none were in the running for a GM job 5 months ago,  and suddenly you think the next hot GM is in the pile?    I appreciate that Nick Caserio might be the exception to the Patriots rule from the BB tree....    but BB has a poor record of turning out good HC's elsewhere.   He might someday....   but not so far.    Front office is decent I think, so maybe Caserio is good?   But Don't you want to get all of this done sooner than later?    Don't you want to rip the band-aid off ASAP?   Doesn't the new GM want to hire his own guy,  his own staff, ASAP?     And if you think the answer is no,  then why don't all GM's who get hired in January,  do it your way?    Why don't they keep the staff,  the HC,  coordinators and assistants,  all the front office types and the scouts,  and do all the changes the following winter?     Why don't they do that?   They don't,  do they?   I really wish this was just a simple thought experiment.   That you were simply making a case that making a GM change in the spring is do-able and not anythig else.    Some here don't understand when it happens at all in the spring and I've made the argument several times that the spring isn't as bad as you think.    Doable under certain circumstances is perfectly OK.   But you're not doing that.     You're not arguing for doable.   Instead you're arguing for desireable.    And you think it's an easy decision.    I confess that even as your biggest admirer,  perhaps BECAUSE I'm your biggest admirer,  I find this position more than a little head scratching.....   Just saying....
