Pass protection was great!

Our O-Line is going to be good. I liked what I saw as the game went along.

I like our starters.  I still have some reservations here or there about playing a team that blitzes a lot.  Skys the limit if we handle that well.   Didn't feel Detroit did too much blitzing.  We'll see a lot against the Broncos, but they may back that stuff up if Luck starts skinning them.

"#Colts left side duo of LT Anthony Castonzo and LG Jack Mewhort was particularly strong, allowing just one hit and one hurry combined."

The #Colts [o-line] allowed just 1 sack and 7 total pressures on 51 passing plays … ranks 4th … so far this week. https://t.co/9az9Lr4hV6

Yeah, all three were fouls. I am sure they missed some on the Colts too but the hit on Luck bothered me because weak or not you can't hit the QB like that when they give themselves up, again not so much because it impacted the game, it didn't really, but more so because of principal of the rule which is to protect QBs.

 Oliver Luck believes there may be something sinister going on.

Jack played an amazing game. Still looks hurt to me though. Hopefully we can get him rest between plays. Myself personally still have wait until week 3 of this year. We'll know what this team is all about then. More test are ahead for our team. Not just offensively, but our defense as well.

He's not going anywhere.  Let's see what Morrison can do more.

Honestly Moose did a good job yesterday highlighting on a passing play for a TD,to one of the running backs that DQ was telling Morrison the play was coming right at him and Morrison just couldn't get there.  

 

I also know several people covering the Colts have pointed out Morrison is more like DQ and not really built to cover.  I know Holder said at one point if you don't like seeing DQ covering tightends you really don't want to see Morrison doing it.

 

Honestly yesterday showed me just how much we miss Freeman.

Not really he is no better with the Bears , maybe when secondary is healthy they can use Geathers in some TE situations , but really don't know the answer . Morrison was pretty good overall for first game. Just think the missed coverage was inexperience.

    • No.  Rivers isn't a game manager like Grossman, he's much better than that. Our OL is better than Chicago's 2006 OL was, but we don't really know we're a 'run first' team right now.  We threw 46 times in week 1, and were certainly a pass first team in at least 1/3 of our games so far.   Yes, we do have an old WR (TY) and some young WRs (though our top 2 are hurt in Pittman and Campbell).     Yes, we do have a solid front 7 (Okereke is the only one who has worried me much so far, and I think we'll get even better should Turay come back).  Hopefully our DBs can keep taking the ball away, but we had 0 picks in game 1... so I'm skeptical about saying we're going to be consistent in doing that (especially considering Cousins had a very bad game and the Jets stink).     We're missing the best returner in NFL history (Hester), though I think Dulin/Rodgers/Hines have potential to be good - I highly doubt any of them are going to be close to Hester.     In short, it's way too early in the season to compare us to any other team from the past... our D was awful in week 1, it's looked good since but against the Jets (arguably worst team in NFL) and the Vikes who definitely had an off day.  Frankly, I think we have potential to be significantly better than the 2006 Bears (regardless of if we make the SB or not), but this is a totally different NFL than it was 14 years ago.
    • Yup, like I said, wish we used the speed like they did. Just not that. The way they attack the edges is awesome. It really opens up the middle. 
    • I'd change that to highly coveted UDFA :-) Total project, but yes, very interesting.  I remember a bit about him now from the draft. I need to do some more digging. I know small school, etc., but that's all I can recall. Ah. Makes sense. Thank you my friend.
    • @danlhart87 @EastStreet @stitches@Myles @chad72 @2006Coltsbestever I wish we ran a set like this with TY, Campbell, and Hines stacked up like the Chiefs did.
