It is just the first preseason game. Wait til the third game.

20 seasons of preseason games - trust me, it doesn't matter.  This team, without its QB - Manning or Luck - has no prayer.  When they don't play, when they play sparingly in preseason, you see just how weak and thin these teams are.  Perhaps Ballard can change that with a few more drafts, but 2017 looks like the same old same old.

 

Pray Luck is back.

I agree for the most part. However, the lack of the ability to move the ball has been on the quarterbacks and o-lines run blocking. Defense has been stout, just on the field for 40 minutes of play. Allowing 24 points in that span isn't bad IMO.

Rick Venturi just said exactly what I am. 

 

This team ram will not have a lot of depth this year. We can't sugar coat that. 

 

Call it it like it is Colts fans! We are better than making excuses for this terrible performance. 

Ok we sucked, I get it. You do realize the year we won the SB we didn't win a game in pre-season. It's 1 game in pre-season.

Yeah I'm not overly worried. This performance is terrible though. Have to be better. Much better

 

Vikings fans were complaining too. We won the game 17-10 but many thought that the Bills looked a lot better, especially their first team. Our pass rush was in mid-season form but we could not stop the run at all. Our first team offense, outside of what Dalvin Cook did, was uninspiring.

 

Let's see what happens the next two games. 

 

Has Mack made an appearance?

I don't think anyone is making excuses. We all saw the game. We stunk. But a preseason game is not enough to get worked up about, at least IMO. A lot of these guys playing terrible won't even be on the team 2-3 weeks from now.

I am not even worried at all. Once Luck gets healthy we will be fine.

No Mack hasn't made an appearance. I don't know why

Sure. I am well aware of that. 

 

You do do realize we had several highly paid players on those teams too, right?

 

When we pay about 10 players 70% of the salary then we have some excuse for the lack of depth. 

 

If if you can't see how bad the depth on this team is right now then you're blind as a bat!

    • Bowers of course but all WR's and Edge Rushers. I want to see the over all speed of some of the Edge Rushers, and WR's. Can't teach speed. That is why Polian couldn't pass on Dwight Freeney because he was fast and quick, even though undersized he was our 1st Round pick back in 2002. Polian got mocked for the pick at the time, but he said that was a no-brain pick after watching Dwight at the combine. Once Freeney ran that 4.48 40 it was history!
    • All I saw was that he was super indecisive in high school as he transferred twice and kept changing his commitment. Then when he was with Bama in 2022, he shoved some woman after the Tennessee loss who was trying to film him, but Saban said there was a deeper story to that.
    • He looks like a legit option, but I’m pretty sure I’ve read somewhere there are some character concerns with him. 
    • Cam Hart is a CB I think Ballard would like that we could take in rounds 3/4 if we don't go CB on day 1. He has 32 5/8 inch arms if I remember right.
    • I don't know about necessarily challenging for it this year. Pascal Siakam was a very big pickup, and he's only played 17 games with them. They were 3-6 in his first 9 games in Indy. They are 6-2 in the last eight. I think a player of his magnitude takes some time to get accustomed to. But I think where they are situated in the standings right now is far from where they should be and are more than capable of being. I think they can easily be a top 3 team in the Eastern Conference, which would certainly give them a good shot at competing for a title. While not a huge basketball fan, I have longed for the Pacers to be back in a title fight. I grew up watching Reggie and have vivid memories of the brawl in Detroit. Which I knew at the time was going to be detrimental to what was the best team in the league at that point, in my opinion. It's been said that they may have some serious players looking to come to Indy to pair with Siakam and Haliburton. They have a pretty young talented roster as it is.      I respectfully disagree. Women's college has been poorly attended, for better or worse for some time. Never has a single player been a draw like she has. Iowa just lost in Bloomington a few days ago, and it was a complete sell-out, 17k, with Vic Oladipo sitting courtside. If she declares (still debatable if she will) and she is Indianapolis, people will pay to watch her play. Maybe not sell-outs, but major increase in attendance. Opposing teams are currently experiencing 150% increase in attendance when she is in town. tv ratings sky high. 1.5 million plus. When they lost to Ohio State in overtime, it peaked at just under 4 million. Last year's national championship game? Up 100 plus % to almost 10 million viewers.    I think you grossly underestimate the draw. She's the steph curry of women's basketball.
