Colts Vs. Falcons Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

It's been amusing watching some of the looks Peyton has been giving Painter when he's walking off the field this game hehe

Yes it has. Been the best part of the game I think.

I don't understand why we don't run the ball more. Painter has proven that he can't do squat in the NFL so why do we continue to let him make all of these terrible passes all game. They obviously had no faith in him by bringing in Collns to start the season. It's baffling that's for sure...

*Edit* They finally benched him...let's see what Orlovsky can do.

It's kind of weird. I have been listening to the Falcons radio broadcast, and for the past fifteen minutes or so they have not been paying any attention to the game and have been discussing the future of the Colts. Whether Manning will come back, whether or not to draft Luck if they get the first pick, how they will rebound from this season, what coaches go and stay, what happens when Irsay steps down and his daughters take over, etc., etc. Kind of weird to hear this discussion coming from the Falcons' radio announcers.

Orlovsky defenitely has some accuracy...unlike Painter

I would have liked to have seen him put in earlier. I think this guy has some potential.

Just goes to show you how much this game didn't matter after the Falcons went up big

Wonder if Orlovsky will get a start next week?

You were spot on with that one weren't you Mr. Expert? :P

true, but did it really matter no. I was right on the fact that he would return by Week 9 or 10, when everyone said that I was crazy for saying that.

Good for him! IMO, it was a mistake letting him go, was one of our better backs.... now we have no one but Bethea. :(

In another topic that has absolutlely nothing to do with this one . . . Chargers are losing to Pacs 21-7. Chargers have not looked good this year.

sweet sweet irony... well if Painter had to throw a pick, I'm happy it's to Hayden, it's only fitting.

    • There is a good chance that Reich agrees with this. Ballard? I’m not sure if he’s doing due diligence watching Love or if he has him pegged as the next Mahomes.
    • The OL hasn’t been perfect but no OL is when they’re protecting a statue
    • There are at least 3 people who are probably saying. I told you we should have traded up and taken Will Hernandez.  
    • Disclaimer: I still don't know if Brissett is the future at QB.  But the more film I watch, the more Jordan Love looks like DeShone Kizer rather than Patrick Mahomes.  With where the Colts will be picking, there are no "sure thing" QBs.   Regardless of what the Colts do this off-season, Brissett is likely to be the starting QB next year.  It will be intriguing to see if the Colts can surround him with better skill talent and whether a full off-season to prepare like a starter helps him improve.    https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/12/08/nfl-week-14-preview-analysis   Excerpt:   Before the receiving corps deteriorated due to injury, the Colts were sitting at 5-2 and Brissett was on pace for 3,600 yards, 32 TD passes and a 99.3 passer rating. Now left with Zach Pascal and the Funky Bunch, Brissett would surely kill for the kind of talent Tom Brady has with the slumping Patriots at the moment.   Then there was the injury to Brissett himself, which has shaded this season. Had he not sprained his MCL in Pittsburgh and finished the de-pantsing of the Steelers rather than turning it over to Brian Hoyer to, well, turn it over for the remainder of that game as well as the next one (an upset loss to Miami), Indy would be sitting at 8-4 right now. If their kicking game hadn’t devolved at a stunning rate (if you project points-per-kick based on league-average rates from inside-50-yard attempts, 50-plus attempts and PATs, Adam Vinatieri is a league-worst -11.9 on the year while opposing kickers against the Colts are +7.4, fourth-best in the league), you could probably push that record to at least 9-3 (there were particularly egregious, arguably game-costing misses in losses to the Chargers in Week 1, and last week to Tennessee).   At this point in his career, Brissett is a high-end game manager. He has the potential to develop into much more. Since the last time we saw him, he's become a faster processor. The arm talent, underrated touch and functional mobility aren't going anywhere.   TRIVIA TIME   PLAYER A: 6.58 yards/attempt, 19 TD, 7 INT, while throwing to Pro Bowl slot receiver with three 1,000-yard seasons, veteran WR acquired for second-round pick, 2015 first-round pick, 2019 first-round pick who’s missed nine games, 28-year-old former All-Pro WR released after six games, veteran TE who’s missed six games   PLAYER B: 6.91 yards/attempt, 18 TD, 6 INT, while throwing to Pro Bowl WR who has missed six games, 2019 second-round WR who has missed six games, No. 1 TE who has missed two games, formerly undrafted TE whose never had a 700-yard season, three undrafted WRs (in second, third and fourth NFL seasons)   Can you match the player with his 2019 stats?   (Hint: Both of them have appeared in this post, and both aren't having great seasons)
