He better be down in the box most of the time or else we'll see the famous "Landry fly-by" flashing across our TV screen, then he jumps up and shakes his head like he just did something.

I like Landry. Been a supporter since he signed, but I find the situation irksome. That or else I'm turning grumpy. :)

Those are actually fun to watch. I know it has to stop, but at that speed, if Landry can connect...that's a big if though.

Ya don't need a big hit to jar the ball loose OR to intimidate someone going over the middle though, Personally with the way we play our defense(specifically our Safeties...Cover 1 a lot) I think it would have been a much better to get 2 Cover Safeties....Landry has the range but not the discipline in a cover 1...Neither did Bethea in my opinion either), Jerrell Freeman(yes I know different position) has 7 forced fumbles in 2 years and most if not all of those are because when he wraps the ball carrier up he goes for the ball with an arm or hand, I would have loved to have saw what he could do if we had him at the age of most of these rookies , He deserves more recognition then he gets in my opinion

We have not even played our first preseason game yet. I really don't have much of a problem with 2 for sure starters Landry and Davis sitting not risky injury and letting the coach's get a good long look at plenty of players at  2 positions that could use a diamond in the rough.

 

Lets see guys like Cox Purifoy McDonald Burley Price and J Adams etc as much as possible before we make first cuts. We know what Landry and Vontae can do. 

 

Give Brown Adams Howell etc sometime with the first team doesn't seem like that big of a deal to me actually might prove to be smart. It's not like Vontae and Laron are holding out they are being held out for a reason.

I think we are going to see more from Dewey Mcdonald as the preseason games are played.  Just needs to get more comfortable in the scheme.  I really believe he is going to be a talent.  In the end I'm also interested to see how Lou Purifoy will be used(assuming he makes the team).  Seems they've been using him as a corner, but I think he could also be a play maker in coverage as a safety.  He's got a nose for the football and seems to be a playmaker.

 

He's got great size for the position and great awareness for making plays.  Just from watching combine tape he seems to have great leaping ability to go up and snag balls over the top. I think he's an okay corner, but that may not be his best skill set at this level.  We'll see I guess....

I agree with you about Purifoy, to me, he can play a Lamarcus Joyner role of outside CB, slot Corner, returner or even safety.

    • We still talking first 10 games East?   Colts finished 6-2 over their last eight games to squeak into the playoffs.  Rookie Jonathan Taylor was Indy’s most important player during that stretch, as he averaged 117 rushing yards per game on 5.71 yards per carry to go with nine touchdowns.  The Colts should be very excited about Taylor heading into next season and beyond, as he finished third in the league in rushing yards as a rookie that didn't even get going until wk 10!  What else do I have to say to Colts fans to not be "All Fan Boy" at this time??
    • I love this picture. TY and Parris when they talk in interviews seem to have a very close relationship. TY says he talks to Parris everyday. Some of the videos being posted over the last couple days it looks like Parris is flying.    
    • I agree with you, easily top 5 and should be top 3.  I think a lot depends on how much respect the D gives Carson Wentz, if they stack 8 men in the box I don't care if your D Henry you will be contained.  Funny you mentioned the Jags, how did that 1st game work out for us East?  Sometimes it comes down to the coaching staff committing to running the damn ball and just like the Jags game you can put the Steelers game in there as well.     You had a whole entire season to digest the play of Jonathon Taylor and I don't understand how a Colts fan is not all "FAN BOY" at this moment East?  Your Football IQ is very high to know that the first 10 wks of JT career was very Trent Richardson like but if you know anything about the game and studied what coaches or even himself has said about his turnaround, you would see the ALL PRO talent that is about to be unleashed in front of you.  Of course, if Wentz is a bust and 10 man boxes are a steady diet then all bets are off. 
    • Did you read the whole story, or are you reacting to the headlines?   Reich said he’d be willing to bet his job in Wentz returning to form.    You don’t hear coaches say that every day.   I wouldn’t say never, but that’s pretty rare. 
    • I’m thinking the streak ends this year.
