Colts Vs. N.Y. Giants Preseason Game Night Thread

Recommended Posts

I can see that. But if the coaches have what they need at special teams I think Burley gets the nod because he covers better.

We need some one who is good at returning kicks. Colts usually struggle there. Hard to not go with a guy who is showing that he has that ability.

Griff is more reliable but isn't a big play threat. DaRick is on any given play. Just depends on which way the coaching staff wants to augment the receiving corps. Luck has plenty of reliable types in Wayne, T.Y. and possibly Nicks. DaRick adds size and explosiveness to the mix that Griff can't match.

Luck can get away with a bad pass with DR

I think they're going to keep both. Rogers is a big-play receiver, I agree. I just want him to be more consistent.

There's also Moncrief who the coaching staff has been high on. It will be interesting to see who they go with. It will go down to the wire. Colts are stacked at wideout.

If Purifoy locks down the PR job Griff will have one less feather in his cap

Agreed. Griff hasn't had much room to operate back there thus far.

Chandler is looking pretty good this drive

A turd with legs would do well out there right now.

Boom was doing pretty well. I would give Purifoy a look too. The kick return has almost been removed from the game almost every kicker can slam it deep in the end zone. It is the PR that can really help flip field position

Goodbye Tanner.

Not that I thought he would be around anyway but what did he do

    • Just saw a mock with the Colts taking Kinlaw in the 1st then Devonta Smith with the Skins pick, I like that a lot. Doesn't solve the QB problem, but solves 2 others. I'd almost rather go Qb early in the draft and fill other holes in FA. 
    • Yeah no. I know the Colts franchise is so used to always having the answer in front of them but this is not it. Jacoby Brissett is not the future of the Colts plain and simple. A fluff piece from SI doesn’t change that. He not special whatsoever. He has clear limitations that aren’t going to fix themselves when everyone is healthy. He’s not bad or anything but he doesn’t scare anyone on the opposing team. Teams are more scared of Winston then they are Jacoby.
    • I’d 100% challenge this sentence. I’ve not seen much, if any improvements in processing from JB from the 2017 year up till this last game. In fact, it could be worse now than the 2017 season. Either way, processing is certainly his worst trait and I don’t think bodes well for a starting QB in the NfL. If only he could get the defenses to respect his game just as an average starter, the game could open up so much more.    maybe our offense should just become the Army-Navy game style. Run run run run run. 
    • It's a pretty darn good roster overall. Folks poo pooing this roster simply have a singular and Colts-centric view and little knowledge of the rest of the league. We've come such a long way in a couple years. Sure we have places that still need upgrades but if you compare the units/positions from 4 years ago, the transformation is pretty obvious.    That said, it's a lot easier to improve a very bad roster, and it gets harder as the overall depth and talent improve. Replacing bad with average makes a big difference. Now we're trying to replace the average, trying to build depth behind the good, and bring in guys to eventually replace the aging good.    I've said for a while, I love what Ballard is doing, but his job was easier early on. It's what he does now and in the next couple years as it gets harder, that is what is important.    As far as Reich goes, I like him a lot, but I'm still on the fence with him a bit. I give him a pass for this year as his talent at QB took a major hit. The only thing I'd ding him on is lack of QB development/improvement. I don't necessarily blame him though as I think JB has just hit his ceiling and not sure he'll ever improve some of the basics he struggles with. He has had some real duds in terms of game plans though. 
    • If I had to guess, it's not that they necessarily love JB as if he was top tier guy, it's that's there's no clear moves to improve the position through the draft. And even though I think a guy like Andy Dalton is probably a sizable improvement to JB, people aren't going to accept that..
