Predictions for tonight?


Recommended Posts

One conservative, one plausible but not certain, one curve ball. Mine are:

 

  • We take the lead with our ones on the field but the twos and threes give it up again (though i think we will see improvement from them).
  • T.Y Hilton goes for 100 yards and 2 TDs.
  • Robert Mathis performs his new practice move, embarrasses the Giants tackle and sacks Eli.

This is the move, in case you didn't catch the original thread the other day: http://www.colts.com/media-center/videos/Training-Camp-Daily-Recap-08-14-2013/b356dac2-4f59-400e-9783-0267a01844de

Well that's obviously going to happen so that's your conservative pick. What about the other two?

My plausible is that after getting reamed by Mr. Irsay, we'll actually game plan in the first half. Not necessary in the preseason IMHO.

Curve ball? Vaughn will blanket Cruz.

I want to see this defense come to the game, if they don't make a statement tonight I am afraid we're in for a long year...

 

SO many guys last week just looked lost, like it was their first time on the field...

 

Offense I expect will click a little better tonight, I'd like to see DHB do something this week.

1st team defense didn't allow a touchdown. 3rd team was the bad defense. And most of those guys won't be on the 53 so yeah

Save your breath. There will still be some who care about winning the game, and don't get that the preseason is about evaluating players since its now almost impossible to do that in camp with the new rules.

Like you said, the 1st team is all we care about for TEAM play. After that it's strictly personnel auditions.

Just was pointing it out. 1st team on both sides did well. Both had 2 plays That were mistakes but overall I was impressed & proud of our 1st team

2 Mistakes on defense: The 2 CJ Spiller runs

2 Mistakes on offense: Snap count mess up/sack & the Fleener fumble

Despite those plays we still jumped out to a 10-3 lead so that was a good thing. Tonight we get to see more of the starters so it should be interesting

-Luck hits 4 different receivers before his work is done and we have rhe lead.

-We actually show a commitment to the running game with the 1's and 2's

-Link gets a pancake on Tuck

Good one (3)!

I've got a feeling that we're going to show the same committment to the run that George Clooney shows to marriage.

Some of the 3rd string even played well.  The ones that really looked lost were our 4th and lower string DB's...well and Vaughn/Gordy too but only because they were going up against the Bills' first team receivers.  Swanson, Green, and Price looked lost.  Allen Chapman is the only one that I was somewhat impressed with.  Rayford and Loiseau had their moments but also made a couple of nice plays.  Kellen Heard didn't really do anything special but I wouldn't say he was bad.

I dont think Luck can make the throws at night in the Northeast, in an outdoor stadium. He looked like Tim Tebow last yr @ NYJ. I'm interested to see him in this environment. I hope he proves me wrong.

Something magic about night games in the NE? Darn, I guess there's no hope if we make it to the SB.

    • I think if he comes to the Colts and wins a SB and continues to play well he will certainly become a HOF.  
    • Radunz is growing on me, doubt he would be there for our 2nd round pick now, OTs get overdrafted. Might need to move up in Round 2 if we don't have our first rounder.   Cade Johnson and Tylan Wallace, love both of them. I have loved Wallace for more than a year now.
    • Sounds to me like Watson said it. 
    • Tom is a very smart person, whether it is football related decisions or off the field interests, IMO. He assessed the situation very well before going there, so it was not as big a risk as folks on the outside thought it was. Despite Winston throwing 30 INTs, the Bucs were still 7-9. He knew that team was loaded with offensive talent, he helped them add more with Gronk and AB, and had young defensive players and a good coaching staff. Eventually, Byron Leftwich got schooled with the Brady way as well on offense and once folks fell in line in unison, the situation became more and more conducive for winning, IMO.    Guys like Peyton and Tom, no matter where they go, double digit wins with their eyes closed can be predicted, IMO. History has shown that. Tom is now making his mark on a different team just like Peyton did. If Belichick was any better with drafting and/or acquiring offensive talent, Tom would still be a Patriot, IMO. 
    • Irsay certainly fed into the image of a fat-cat bullying businessman the national media loves to sell.  He was an easy Mark.   All of those hot head impulsive instances are symptomatic of an alcoholic, which he was rumored to be.  It's sad that the media would take advantage of that just to sell their narrative.  I think people like him should not have their core personality judged on actions committed while impaired.  He needed real help, as do all who have problems like that.   The issues with the stadium were not so much that it was bad, it was compounded by the fact that many other cities had much better stadiums and Baltimore or MD refused to keep up.     I'm not a proponent of using tax payer dollars to fund privately used stadiums, but I guess Baltimore finally got with the program and built a nice facility for the Baltimore Browns (sorry).
