Changes you would like to see


Recommended Posts

I liked a lot of what I saw in the Chargers game. The offense got out to a much faster start than it has the past few weeks and even into last season. The defense clamped down on the running game for the most part and held their own in the red zone. This team is steadily improving in all areas.

 

As far as improvement, I'd like to see the bad turnovers from Luck go away and not so many drive killing penalties. Some semblance of a pass rush would be nice as well.

I want to see Haeg at RG permanently, then move Good back to RT where he looked pretty good last year. Those 2 are both great run blockers and at least decent pass protectors. That right side could become just as strong as our left side when Castonzo is playing at his best. Kelly has looked solid in the middle and we could suddenly have an above average offensive line with pretty good depth with Reitz as a swing G/T and Harrison and Blyth as swing C/Gs. Clark also as a backup T with some development.

I'd like to see Luck not throw that out route to the right sideline. It always looks like a replay of a pick/pick six. And usually is. Also think we need to watch our pass defense on short crossing routes this year as our linebackers look to be slow again. Especially with lack of edge rushers.

Clark wasn't even active today.     Not sure if he's been active even once yet.    Clark is a long, LONG way from being ready to start.

 

I think Clark has gotten a few snaps on ST... I agree that he is nowhere near ready to see game action on the OL, though.

This is a joke right?

 

He was projected as a 2-3rd rounder, drafted in round 3. Has all the physical measurables. Not sure why he's been  hyped as "long way ready". Also, he's already 23.

 

Not like he's a 20 year old who graduated early and decided to enter the draft, ala Amobi Okoye.

IMO just start Clark at RT, with Haeg rotating in. Reitz to rotate with Mewhort and Goode at guard spots.

Clark can't be any worse than Tony Ugoh.

What? You mean a HOF Exec like Polian drafted O'Line busts as well? So it's not only Grigson? Lordy, what a shocker.....

The changes I'd like to see the most howabout all the Doom & Gloom threads not that this is one , Its just a change I'd like to see .

Image result for big boys don't cry memes

 

:hat:

I won't lie Adonis 1. I did find your post hysterical; but you do realize that the moment you call for a prohibition on all doom & gloom threads that somebody will inevitably start a topic: Why so many fans are in such denial about how dire our team's post season prospects are? 

 

You can't win no matter what you do because you're either at death's door or blissfully ignorant of how far the Colts have to go to reach the pinnacle of success in the NFL. 

 

Some people aren't happy unless they are moaning & groaning about something man. You know the type. They could win the lottery & complain it's not big enough or being awarded in installments over time isn't structured to their personal satisfaction. Sigh...

 

Look, depending on my mood, I can vent to the level of an art form. But, generally...I'm just grateful we aren't as dreadful as the Bears right now. Sorry Bears fans. Go Cubs? Just trying to make Illinois fans feel better man.

The NY Giants won that contest this week against the Redskins. At least our center didn't get expelled in the 4th Qtr this week. I was stunned when that happened since Big Blue is my 2nd favorite squad to watch. 

 

Regarding the Colts, I just want a strength & conditioning coach that can keep DBs active & healthy for us in the secondary. A pipe dream I know.

If you watch his film, you'll see he's not fundamentally sound, and not ready for the pro game. He has tools and measurables, but needs a lot of work.

Changes I'd like to see: 

 

Can Chud please throw a slant into the offensive scheme? That would be awesome to not try "establishing the run" on 1st and 2nd down, and then get faced with another 3rd and 7. 

 

I'd like to see the team be able to successfully execute (and defend) screen passes. 

 

I'd like the secondary to be Vontae and Cromartie on the outside, and Robinson in the slot. 

 

I'd like to see if anyone not named Harrison could play RG, and Haeg at Tackle. 

 

I'd like to see Arthur Jones tear it up when he comes back.

    • I'm a little uncomfortable with it. We all love having a really good offensive line, but realistically how valuable is having Braden Smith or Ryan Kelly over an average NFL right tackle and center? Personally, outside of the left tackle position because they're hard to find, I wouldn't love paying just good offensive linemen big money. And obviously I like Braden and Ryan but they are just good.    Nelson is obviously exceptional and you have to pay him. That's kind of how I'd look at it with the O-Line. Pay the outlier guys who are special the big bucks and the rest I feel like you're good if you just find solid guys who aren't liabilities year in year out. 
    • Cubs win, beat the Nationals 7-3. Nice to get a win over the former Cub Jon Lester who takes the loss. Cubs are now 20-20 at .500 so we are maintaining so far through May within close distance of the 1st place Cards who are off tonight. Just 2.5 games back of 1st now.   Here are the NL Central Division standings through May 17th, 2021:   1. Cards 23-18 2. Brewers 21-20 (2 back) 3. Cubs 20-20 (2.5 back) 4. Reds 19-20 (3 back) 5. Pirates 17-23 (5.5 back)     Fly the Flag @HOZER
    • If Pittman and Campbell both breakout this year the Colts offense could be something special. DBs won't be able to just hone in on Hilton. I don't know what his stats will be but I think it'll be close to 18 than 19, 20.
    • So, let's get this out of the way at the beginning.     Carson Wentz is our first round pick for 2022.    I'm guessing we will be picking roughly in the same spot, maybe a little later...   Where do we go from there?     Here's my first look....    I think of it as the more toys for Wentz edition...   1.   Wentz 2.    TE      Rumor is Doyle will retire after this season.   Frank loves TE's, so let's give him one that can really make an impact. 3.    CB     How long will Rhodes and Carrie be able to deliver high level play.    Feels like it's time to face that. 4.    WR    I thought we'd spend higher than a 7 on a WR in the '21 draft.    This may be Hilton's last year.   Still lots of young question marks. 5.    RB     Will we re-sign Hines?    Maybe?    Likely?    How about Wilkins?    With questions here,  I think a 5 might bring us a decent RB. 6.    OL     Depth to stash away on the PS as I expect Fries to be. 7.    LB     More depth?    How long will Adams and Franklin remain with the Colts?   I'm sure some of my draftnik friends have some ideas about the next class.    What do you see the Colts doing in 2022?
