Credit to the defense


Recommended Posts

I loved the defense! Especially Sergio! We could improve on dealing with RBs and TEs. But to only allow 13 points on a hot and 7 ranked offense, makes me pretty happy about their play!

Im going to give it to Werner also. I give him a lot of flack but he came up big!

The decision to start Harrison almost cost us with three really bad plays. Thank goodness Luck is good enough to cover them up. Disappointed with the sloppyness and turnovers. Without those, this game was a almost dominant performance. Defense stepped up big time. Werner has been a hair away from multiple sacks this season, perhaps this is where he turns the corner.

Manusky finally started to blitz more, it was the best play calling game he's had. This is how you play to your strengths, blitz 5 and rely on your CB's to make stops. Werner and Davis was outstanding today but they were put in great positions to make those plays. I want to see more of this aggressive defense as the season goes on.

Great game by our defense, Davis is a stud, Werner played great and got 2 sacks, Sergio Brown actually looked quite good, just solid all around, and we still don't even have our best D-lineman in Art Jones out there. 

dont forget mathis even tho wont be playing this year :(

The Colts dominated most of the game and yet the annoucers could only talk about how great the Raves D was,  this game should have been around 35 - 13 Colts!!

To be honest, I heard a lot of praise about Luck and our O too.

Definitely should've been a routing indeed, doesn't help when the team has 2x redzone turnovers that's a min of 6 pts off the board. In the end though a win is a win, they gotta clean up those turnovers though.

Probably because good red zone D by the ravens is what prevented it from being 35-13 colts.

I don't know about you guys but this should have been our style of D for the last decade and we would have had more Lombardis to show for it.

 

Plus, I get the feeling our D plays hard to make up for Luck's mistakes even if he has any, much like how Flacco's Ravens or Big Ben's Steelers or Brady's Pats used to do. That is why I feel our Lombardi is not too far off.

    • If Pittman and Campbell both breakout this year the Colts offense could be something special. DBs won't be able to just hone in on Hilton. I don't know what his stats will be but I think it'll be close to 18 than 19, 20.
    • So, let's get this out of the way at the beginning.     Carson Wentz is our first round pick for 2022.    I'm guessing we will be picking roughly in the same spot, maybe a little later...   Where do we go from there?     Here's my first look....    I think of it as the more toys for Wentz edition...   1.   Wentz 2.    TE      Rumor is Doyle will retire after this season.   Frank loves TE's, so let's give him one that can really make an impact. 3.    CB     How long will Rhodes and Carrie be able to deliver high level play.    Feels like it's time to face that. 4.    WR    I thought we'd spend higher than a 7 on a WR in the '21 draft.    This may be Hilton's last year.   Still lots of young question marks. 5.    RB     Will we re-sign Hines?    Maybe?    Likely?    How about Wilkins?    With questions here,  I think a 5 might bring us a decent RB. 6.    OL     Depth to stash away on the PS as I expect Fries to be. 7.    LB     More depth?    How long will Adams and Franklin remain with the Colts?   I'm sure some of my draftnik friends have some ideas about the next class.    What do you see the Colts doing in 2022?  
    • Ah. I noticed the stats for all our away prime time games too.    We really do get shafted. 
    • I plan on doing Miami this year too. I unfortunately can't start planning anything until I know more about when the border will open again I'll definitely be at that one too as long as the border is back open
    • I think using KC as an example is not really correct. They lost 2 starting Oline players a week before the big game. I don't think to many teams could over come losing 2 starting players and hope to win. By that I mean 2 starting  corners......so on and so on.
