very excited to get a longer look at the starters and see some of the more dark horse fringe roster players shine and prove they deserve a spot hoping we can learn from and improve on last week's game.

I'm also excited to see Bryan Bennett learn from the mistakes with turnovers and build upon the flashes of upside that I saw last week I really like the guy and think he has a ton of potential

 

 

Other guys I'm looking for to Impress are Junior Sylvestre who had 2 sacks last week, David Parry and other D-Line Rookies who had solid play last week. Also really wanting to see Clayton Geathers and guys like Sheldon Price shine in the secondary as well. Also really hoping Tyler Varga gets a chance to get some snaps at RB he is a great runner and showed it in his 3-4 runs last week,hoping he gets more chances so i can really evaluate him.

    • You nailed it!!!!!!!!!!!! This is what is happening!!!!!!!!!!! Great post. Yes, we have to try and keep trying to do what is required. The team has regressed this year and its because of JB. This injury thing with JB is a bunch of crap along with less then desired WR's. Please Mr. Ersay do what has to be done. The team will never go anywhere with this guy. 
    • On the first bolded, I absolutely agree. He lost so much from last year (OL, WR, RB, and coach), and his D is a lot worse. They are in catch up mode a lot this year, and asking him to do way to much.   On the comments about him making a mistake, I disagree. He's shown what he can do with decent talent, and with a decent OC (Yost), last year. Most reports said he was weighing a transfer to get back to Yost. At best, he'd just be replicating the season he had last year, which was very good. Would it raise his stock, maybe... but he's starting to trend middle of the 1st and either the 3rd or 4th QB taken. If he stayed in school, and he had a good year, best he is going to do is be second (after Lawrence), and he's lost out on a paid year. It's kind of a wash IMO if he does go middle first this year.
    • I would be ok, if we draft Anthony Gordon with our 3rd round pick     We could get the needed WR, OT, DL with our first 3 picks    Then let them all TRULY compete.   Let the top 2 stay on the roster....  to me, a back up QB NEEDS to be on the way up (potential)   I HATE the journeyman QB that you cant count on to win a game   Hoyer should be cut.   If JB cant beat out the rookie and CK.... HE should be also shown the door.   I was starting to wonder about JB after game 4. The loss to the Texans, where they had 3 of 4 starting DBs out, and we couldnt pass, is where I gave up on JB.  Every game after that JB has proven my point.    The guy does very poorly in the forth quarter, when average and good QBs tend to play better to help their team win.   JB GETS WORSE!   I like nice people and leaders, but if you cant do your job, even middle of the pack....  you gotta go.    I am officially OVER with JB as the starting QB of the Colts.......                
    • What is this kids ability to go through progressions and does he play in a pro style offense?   JB has a lot of great qualities as a QB but dear lord he is terrible at progressions and his delivery is a bit slow. I’m not sure JB is in the right style of offense for his style though, he needs more shifty types of guys that are short area players. He isn’t the go deep, drop it in the right window or in the basket type. Is this kid? Idk who he is.  I think what you are saying is that no young teenager to a young adult ever grows up, they do and if he has managed to stay clean and quiet all season, which he has seemed to do, I’d be willing to take a step into the bathwater to see if I get burned or not. Of course, Kelly would have to absolutely show me the talent on the field first for me to want to take that step. Doing it in practice against our guys doesn’t give me the same confound I would with in game play and adjustments by opposing teams. As a GM, I’d be willing to take on the risk if he has shown the ability to stay focused all year long and shown me the ability to play ball in this league in live fire. Hell, I’d maybe surprise him into a starters role this week just to see how he has been preparing himself all along. He has been placed on inactive roster every game so far, has he practiced and studied like a professional each step of the way? Would he be ready to go if we said 1 1/2 hours before the game, you’re our starter today? It could certainly be another of those milestone tests for him to see his reaction to adversity and if he has been coasting knowing he was not going to be activated or if he has truly dedicated himself to the playbook and his limited reps in practice. I think it could either show his maturity level both good or bad and allow the team to decide if he was worth keeping on the roster or not for next year. A lot of ways this young kid can go here. I’m not as down on risk with him as you certainly are.
