Colts @ Bengals Preseason Game Night Thread

I am not going to lie right now I am more impressed with Adongo than I am Werner. For the record I am not that impressed with Adongo either other than his speed off the ball.

Well, I will say that Adongo plays ST's.  Not sure I've ever seen Werner on ST?

to bring up 4th down

Obviously. But strategically, at that spot on the field, you have to assume there's a good chance a team will go for 4th and 2. I would think Pags would think its easier for Cincy to get a first down on 4th and 2 than 3rd and 17.

Edit: Also, if pushed back, the Colts would have a better chance of getting good field position with a punt. I think.

Very true, I do like Adongo on ST's, but I was talking purely as an OLB.

Ahh...got ya'.  I was thinking more for the final 53.

I agree with you.

That Varga run may have just put him on the team

And Carter had a nice block too

That run and the blitz pick up.

My first time seeing him, but he hits the hole fast and his legs don't stop moving.

He may make the 53.  PS for sure.

I don't believe it. Casey made a play and there was no flag.

Too little too late but that was a good special teams tackle.

Interesting, Irsay saying there's no friction between Grigs and Pags.

I guess Kravitz is a bit off base or Jim is trying to downplay it.

Varga looks hard to bring down and a real chain mover. If he isn't retained, he won't make it to the PS. He will be picked up by a team that wants to run a power running scheme.

Oh wait, that's us.

Agree.  He's had a much better 2nd half.

It looks like they've allowed him to throw more  passes - get more comfortable out there.

He's also making better decisions - save that INT.

Lol do MH and Bb know how to utilize a guy that is 6'5? Yes throw to his feet because he's very low to the ground haha

I know I am right, what are you watching? Werner sucks, and at least Adongo is fast around the corner and plays ST.

    • It was you, you , the reason why it is 95-1  
    • Ya, Glow is the weak link of the OL right now... but is still an improvement to what we had when Ballard/Reich took over this team.  He didn't have a good game against HOU but they also have one of the best defensive fronts in the NFL.   Nelson is a once in a generation talent, I don't see any guards coming out this year close to him.  While I trust Ballard, I highly doubt we'll take a G with our first rounder given the fact that we can use help at several other positions and there will probably be better positional value there for us in the first at other positions.
    • I'll just leave this here. Reich did a fantastic job drawing up plays against the Texans. I guess some credit should go to Sirianni too.    
    • ....Any Given Sunday...     I think the point of the Salary Cap in the NFL was to make this a league of parity.  For the most part, that's what it is (we have a few teams which seem far and away better than others -- the Patriots, e.g., ... and then a couple really bad teams -- the Dolphins this year, e.g.).     For the most part, teams are just a couple injuries/suspensions/ejections shy of losing very good players who change the entire dynamic of their team and if any team comes out with their best effort vs. a team w/ a lackluster effort, there are a lot of things that can happen on Sunday.   I don't disagree with you that we can still lose to the Broncos.  I also don't disagree that the Colts didn't show up to play their best brand of football vs. Oakland.  That said, OAK is a better team than most people think and my original post was in response to you suggesting after the loss to the Raiders, the only way you'd look by a team is if they have 0 wins (IMO, you were suggesting OAK was a very bad team).     Regardless, I don't think it's smart to look past a 0 win team, either.  It happens very rarely, and almost every team that has 0 wins has players on them playing for their personal pride (not just this year, but every year).  Heck, in 1997 we were 0-10 and played the Green Bay Packers who were 8-2 and beat them.  The Packers wound up 13-3 and lost in the SB to Elway's Broncos... we were 3-13, there wasn't an honest 'expert' anywhere who would've thought the 0-10 Colts would beat GB like that, but they did it.   So yea, I agree w/ you about starting to buy into Reich's motto of '1-0' -- that's what it takes to win consistently in this league and not let up against lesser opponents.
