Colts @ Bengals Preseason Game Night Thread

I like this Morris kid.

I like him too but the Colts have pretty much said that Tolzien is their back up and the fact that he didn't play much tonight tells me they weren't having them compete for the job.  Also, as I have said before who you play against in the pre-season maters and holding your own against other teams backups will impress the coaches more than owning guys who will be out of football tomorrow.  Also, it would take more than Morris playing great to win that job, Tolzien would have had to lost it and Tolzien didn't do anything to hurt himself tonight. 

 

The question is will the Colts keep two or three QBs?  Morris has made a major case that they should keep three but will all the injuries allow it?

That was a good Int by Milton but I think the pressure from the right side by Bates that caused the QB to hurry that throw just a bit and caused a bad throw. Still nice to see Milton make a play

So are we back to being postseason contenders since we won tonight?

If we can play the Bengals backups every week I like our chances...

I like both of our back up QBs.  Morris seems so cool under pressure, but they both have their strong points.  Do we keep both? I kind of hope we do.

That was fun to watch. I thought our Defense played physical all night. AJ McCarron didn't do anything against us and he played good last season for Cincy. Morris has nice poise in the pocket.

Does it make sense to put a QB on the practice squad? 

 

Did you hear the announcers say that being on the practice squad 16 weeks...pays $107,000?

tough decision, I mean, Morris did score the only touchdown, no? Tolzien did look good as well, nothing he can do about fumbles.

I'd consider starting Morrison next to Jackson because Morrison brings his physically tough hard hitting style to the game. He will have his struggles in coverage but all of our ILB's will

That would be a great living if you could make the practice squad for teams off and on for 10 years or so.

Yeah this has been a fun night. Edwards looked sharp in the 9th. Cubs are going to win it all! I have been a Cubs fan for a long time. Harry would be proud of this team.

Great preseason finale game and  by our Indianapolis Colts!  :thmup:  Our Colts was able to achieve finishing and concluding their 2016 NFL Preseason Schedule at 2 wins, 2 losses, and 1 tie (if you want to include the cancelled Pro Football Hall Of Fame Game with the Packers).  Stephen Morris' 25-yard touchdown pass to Tevan Smith with over a minuite left in the fourth quarter, made the Colts come behind to defeat the host Cincinnati Bengals 13-10 at Paul Brown Stadium. Morris and Scott Tolzien combined for 31 of 42 passes completed, for 305 passing yards, over the 1-3 Bengals.

 

Now comes the real schedule beginning in 10 days, as the Colts host the visiting Detroit Lions in both teams opening week matchup on September 11, the 15th year anniversary that forever changed America.

 

Hope the braintrust  of Chuck Pagano and the Colts coaching staff, General Manager Ryan Grigson, and the Colts scouting and support staff, in earnest, evaluate and decide with much difficulty, the 22 players, the coaching  and player personnel  staff make the cut down to the 53-man regular season roster that will represent the 2016 Indianapolis Colts.

 

Colts may likely sign between the 7 to 10 players that will make up the team's practice squad.

 

We wish the Colts in selected the best and talent players that will start to endure the 16-game regular season beginning September 11, and try to improve from their 8-8 record in 2015, and recapture the AFC South Division Title in 2016!   

 

See you here when the Colts host the Detroit Lions in their season opener at LOS, and GO COLTS!!!!!  :coltslogo:   :)   :1colts:  :colts:  :coltshelmet:   :coltshorse:   :coltslogo:

    • Not...  But I am willing to look at my OWN interactions and see if I can be better as a person. I hope others on this forum can do the same.It is NOT an easy task to feel what another individual is feeling but it CAN be done.  Thanks for saying.   I bring up the injustice that the Irish immigrants suffered when originally coming to america. I could have talked about the internment of the Asians in this country, the Italian discrimination or Hispanic downgrading . Just wanted to not bring up every ingredient of our Melting Pot.  The Irish were looked at being lesser people due to their lineage.  So did the others individuals that I mentioned.  This is why I bring this up. We should all see that downgrading individuals due to their ethnicity is wrong. You understand this. Just trying to get people to see that injustice can effect ALL people. This country can be better. Let's just give EVERYONE a fair shake.  Just saying.    
    • And when you get that solved on all sides, well, it’s just not realistic to think you can fix that across the board. Bad people are just bad people. Much like the gun debate, guns kill not people or vise versa, people are racist because they are simply terrible people inside, you can’t fix bad people imho. 
    • Yep, wasn’t there a movie where Brendan Fraser starred in about anti-Semitism? I am certain Anti-Semitic opinions still exist today.   We’re all flawed and have to learn to overcome several biases in life as we grow older. 25 years ago, when I moved to this country, I had the same view of Blacks as some people here, as a person of color without knowing any better.   I now know the truth is in the middle but am exhausted trying to convince people to meet in the middle, to be honest, it’s always a yeah but.., conversation with people stuck on the extremes with the narratives they grew up with or are unaware of the holes in them. When I became a US citizen, I remember my co-worker telling me you get the good with the bad history of the US as a new citizen and am realizing he is right.  
    • Oh yeah, Charles Barkley has talked about it, it’s a real thing too. It boils down to respect and trust being established with time, without divisive steps taken, one of which is this “alternative anthem”. If I’m calling out divisive words from the POTUS, it’s only fair I call this idea divisive as well, I’ll leave it at that.
    • Why do you have to single out the Irish? I’m in Boston and it’s pretty well documented the struggles they’ve had here in getting denied work based on their ethnicity.     I know you will say I missed your point but  sometimes we are being racist and don’t even realize it.   Just saying.
