Colts @ Rams Preseason Game Night Thread


Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans! Sorry for the late post close to game time. Our Indianapolis Colts are in The Gateway City to play the St. Louis Rams in their third preseason game, both teams playing in prime time. Although tonight is a preseason game, the Colts will try to to do a better performance than on the playing field in this meeting. St. Louis embarrassed Indianapolis by the score of 38-8 back on November 10, 2013. Tavon Austin scored three times for the Rams, with a 98-yard kickoff return, and two touchdown receptions from QB Kellen Clemens. Colts only scored a 13-yard TD pass from Andrew Luck to Donald Brown late in the third quarter, and completing the game scoring, before the scoreless fourth quarter. Our Colts certainly both don't expect, and allow the Rams another domination on the scoreboard tonight. Both teams are also developing their final 53-man regular season roster. NO injuries, return the Rams the favor with a road win in St. Louis, and GO COLTS!!!!!

    • He was a rookie that didn't get much time in preseason due to being banged up. That's an unreasonable expectation.   Here's the video of the hit:   Keep in mind that this is slowed down and Harrison Smith hits like a mac truck, so any contact from him usually carries a LOT of force behind it. In this case, all of this force was to the side of Parris' planted leg. This isn't some lingering hamstring or foot issue that just keeps coming back over and over again. Smith doesn't shoot for his knee and we most likely still have Parris Campbell on the active roster.
    • I will give Irsay some responsibility for letting Polian put Chris in as the GM.  Irsay should have kept a better eye on things rather then letting Polian have full rein. 
    • It's not exactly easy to pass rush when you're trying to stop a freight train every third play basically. You get fatigued. Again this was an outlier because of covid and injuries. Stop stressing about it. We can still get the division.
    • Running it sure, but when passing and the drop backs, how much time did their QB have to survey the field? I’m just going by what I’ve seen posted and written about, I haven’t seen a game this year. I think it was Bowen who mentioned in his pod that passrush wasn’t present. In fact, I think he also mentioned that team ran right, left and center without much resistance. But it did sound like our #2 backup LT struggled mightily. They had no concerns from using #3 guy. We have Houston and Turay and Muhammad with Lewis and Newly extended Grover steward and that defense did jack squat. Yea, missing a huge piece in the middle with a stud but again, I point to them losing a LT and not missing a beat while the Colts peed the bed. 
    • Nice comment.  But I think you give these FO types a little too much credit for being able to see the future.   A few thoughts.  I don't think there can be too much weight put into any definite plans either Irsay or Manning had before the neck surgery.  The surgery worked, and he went on to play three more years at a pretty good level...at least the first two.  I think both sides were hedging against either scenario, the arm returning or not, and both sides having different motivations, so it looks like a boxing match where the two sides are dancing around the ring fighting for the best position, but not committing to anything, up until August when he goes under the knife.  Why PM insisted the contract should force the Colts hands 5 days before the new league year is something I'd have to think about.   Polian has said that his biggest mistake with PM teams was not having a viable backup QB.  In a rare moment of honest humility, he said that he kicked himself for not drafting Andy Dalton (Spring 2011 draft, would have been our 3rd round pick I think) at the time and knew that not drafting him was the wrong decision the moment it was made.  So it seems that having to go into the season with Painter and then being cornered into finding Kerry Collins in September was just a big screw up more than a plan.  JMO.     And the cupboards were bare when the 2011 season closed.  Once Luck became available to us by him declaring and us having the first pick, old guys like Clark, Saturday, Tamme were expendable.  I think others retired too.  Freeney was just hanging out with a fat contract and still useful but he was excess.  Reggie stayed, Mathis stayed, and AC was heading into his second year.  Not to move on to RG, but one of the reasons he drafted Fleener then DA was because there was no TE on the roster, none, and few olinemen.  Couldn't even field a full o line with who was under contract.  Yeah, that's how bare the cupboard was.  Everybody left.   Also, around that time there was an interview with Polian about his thoughts on Luck and RGIII.  It came off as sounding like he had more good things to say about RGIII than Luck, so I wondered if Irsay was worried that BP was seriously thinking about picking the wrong QB.
