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!

    • This take is wild to me.   Imagine Tua being 'cleared' by the medical staff and then insisting that he doesn't feel right and refusing to go back in. Imagine the way that everyone - fans, media, teammates - would react to that. We've already got * fans of this team insisting that Leonard should be playing because he was able to stand on the sideline and cheer the team on against the Chiefs - people questioning his commitment.   Almost every player is likely to *want* to go back in because they're competitive and relentless by their very nature. It's tough to get to the NFL if you're not a little crazy like that. But even more importantly, every player is *forced* to want to go back in because their entire livelihood depends on it. Tua hasn't had a great start to his career. He's just getting hot and you expect him to say, 'Nah coach, stick Teddy out there. I'm gonna sit this one out. He can win the game as well as I can so it's all good.' You need a little head wobble of your own if you think that constitutes lying or if you think any player is going to say something like that.   It's the players that put their lives on the line when they take the field. They make a fantastic living doing it, and they do it by choice, but there are a huge number of people who also make a great living in the NFL without ever having to place themselves in equally dangerous situations. It's the responsibility of those people - owners, doctors, NFL staff, etc. - to safeguard the players on whom the league relies because they're not always in a position to safeguard themselves.
    • I want him to play but I absolutely want the medical staff to err on the side of caution. A random win in Week 4 isn't worth trading Leonard's long-term health for. You can't be messing around and rolling the dice when it comes to the back/spine.      It's the job of the NFL and its organisations to try to keep the players safe though, not place them in harm's way intentionally. At least, it should be.    That's like saying people shouldn't have to wear seatbelts when they drive because there's a chance that they'll crash and die anyway. I think that's silly.   He didn't pass the rules that were in place, which is a huge part of the problem. Gross Motor Instability is supposed to be an immediate removal from the game and he's placed into concussion protocol. Gross Motor Instability is exactly what Tua displayed but he returned to the game anyway. The only way this could happen is if his instability was proven to be orthopaedic rather than neurological, and there's simply no way that that was the case. 
    • Yeah, the last time Buckner was out vs. Henry - that went really well.  It was a demoralizing 2000s style rush defense performance.
    • taylor is mot running as well since glow is gone
    • I am betting Leonard plays.  The fact he hasn’t been ruled out means he’s very close.  Buckner I think the signs are pointing to him not playing and that’s concerning.  The one game he missed vs the Titans they ran wild.
