I don't understand the time out called by the Colts on the Texans' last drive of the half.  After the TO, everything went pretty much as favorably as possible for the Colts.  The Texans threw an incomplete pass on 3rd down and then punted on 4th down.  Then the Colts took a knee to end the half.  I don't have a problem with taking a knee to end the half with only 7 seconds left, but what was the point of the time out other than to give the Texans more time to mount a successful drive?

Not able to watch today.

Perhaps a personnel issue on the field?

Just a guess.

I was also thinking that, but I believe it was to have a chance at a punt return. Anything can happen on a punt return...

    • Yes....    our next office-season is going to be very strange and difficult.   Honestly,  it might make this off-season seem like a piece of cake.       And you’re right, lots and lots of tough choices.  We may have to let go of players that today might seem inconceivable.  There are stories hinting that the expected big rise in the salary cap next season is not going to happen.  It will likely now happen in 2023, but not 2022.    If memory serves.... The 2020 Salary Cap was $198m. The 2021 Salary Cap is now $185m. The word now is the 2022 SC will be $203m, a raise, but much lower than originally thought.   The big bump won’t hit until 2023 when new TV money fully kicks in.    If all of this is true, decisions may have gotten much harder.   That said, this applies to all teams, and the advantage typically goes to teams with the most money AND the best front office.    PS — Thanks for taking my post constructively the way it was intended and not personally.   Much appreciated. 
    • You are right on to search for an answer. There might be something in the library on Reich and his “Rehab of an Aging Quarterback” Vol. 2 or, the kids section “ Wentz Upon A Time”. It’s about a quarterback that got rescued  before passing Andrew’s record number of times being sacked or picking himself up after being hit by the other team. I have no idea what to expect with Wentz leading the Colts. I can’t wait until the season starts. So, here is the advice I gave last year’s QB...just score more than the other team, don’t make a fool of yourself complaining to the referees,  and most importantly, win the Super Bowl. I do believe our Defense is going to be exciting to watch and that is something to look forward to. Go, Colts!
    • Yeah I thought you were saying that DE had more athletic traits. Which is really subjective as each position requires a focus on one trait rather than another.   The RAS clearly does favor the DE in terms of which athletic trait is being measured.     
    • He was a long shot to begin with. Maybe he'll find a better fit. I know a few other teams showed interest.
    • Joe, you know how heartbreaking it was to go into last yrs game with both our starting tackles OUT vs BLITZBURGH only to dominate and lose the game due to BOMBS???  Going into that game EVERYONE thought this was going to be a blood bath missing both starting tackles but only to see Jonathon Taylor RUN all over you in the first half.  I couldn't believe it at first but I quickly thought wait this is the STEELERS and no matter what it is not over.  Sure enough a second half collapse on Defense was just the recipe to continue your success but the fact we were missing both starting tackles vs BLITSBURGH made it satisfying we still had a shot!!!  No idea why I responded to this post but oh well!!
