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.

    • A solid group from the Polian era? Grigson inherited a 2-win team with aging expensive players.   Clark, Addai and Brackett were old and had to be cut, which resulted in dead cap hits.   Manning’s dead cap hit was huge.   Freeney had the highest cap hit of any player in the NFL that season...and gave them a handful of sacks.   1/3 of his salary cap was dead cap hits from Polian contracts. Contrast to the cap situation that Ballard inherited.   Other than AC and Bethea, the cupboard was bare. Grigs had to re-sign Mathis and Wayne...a gamble considering the age of both players and the type of moves that most rebuilding teams do not do.   He earned every bit of that Exec of the Year award. 
    • Just look at Polian’s draft’s from 1998 to 2006.   Full of Hall of Famers!       What?  Are?  You?  Talking?   ABOUT?!? 
    • I think most QB play looks average in the playoffs. They don't wow you with greatness. Brady certainly doest wow you by his performance in the playoffs regardless of his results. He doesn't look like a QB with as many rings that suggests he's leaps and bounds more elite than other QBs that have been there.    But that shoot out with Favre was pretty fun to watch. Unfortunately I couldn't watch that game back then live. Let's not forget, when the pressure is off, its a lot easier. 
    • 3m let's repeat that next year  Wentz to Agholor 
    • Ballard >>> Grigson >>> Polian.   Just look at Polian's drafts from 2007-2011...full of horse apples.
