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.

 

Not getting worked up at all. 

 

Others are getting worked up because I am speaking the truth.

JoJo Natson has a little Tyreek Hill in him. 

 

He deserves to stay another week.

You all (and others here) may or may not know...  The colts do not have to reduce the roster from 90 to 53 until 4:00 EST September 2, 2017.

 

There are no intermediate cut-down day(s) anymore.  Get to keep all 90 until 9/2/17 @4pm

Yeah. We knew that. 

 

Cut down day will be easy this year.

That is why I was surprised that the Bucs cut Aguayo. And reportedly put it on Hard Knocks!! How classy.

Thank God, at least I don't look bad now lmao 

Seems like there's been a lot of energy spent on selling Tolzien/Walker to Colts fans. Both failed my eye test today. There has also been a sales job to have us forget Morris. Well it's not working on me, I still like Morris better. What I saw looked more like rust from not getting reps in practice.

Yeah. I agree. 

 

Makes ZERO sense to me either.

What about Fitzpatrick? Isn't he available? He should at least be better than Tolzien.

Ryan Fitzpatrick from the New York Jets who now backs up Jameis Winston in Tampa Bay and replaces Mike Glennon in Chicago who replaces Jay Cutler who went to Miami to replace Ryan Tannehill who is injured.

If it were between Fitzpatrick and Bradford, I'd take the latter. No doubt about it

 

Oh, absolutely. Bradford is not that bad. He is just too conservative for me. I wish he would take more chances like Luck does. I dont mind Luck's INTs as much as others do; sometimes INTs are better than punts. Bradford does not show a sense of urgency when he should.

Yes. I agree.

 

Detroit had a lot of guys look really good.

 

Correction: We made a lot of guys for Detroit look really good. 

 

Fairly easy to see that Detroit had much better overall talent on the second and third teams.

You have to try to throw the ball down the field. My problem with Andrew though is that he tries it too much. I still think the Colts offense would be better suited to adapt to a shorter passing game plan

That I agree with.  Our depth is not as deep as I thought it was.  There is a big drop-off from the 1's to the 2's.

 

Even saying that is only speculation, though, since we didn't see a lot of 1's play.  It could be worse... but it could also be better.  I just wish we could get rid of all of these injuries.  I know they happen, but you can't really evaluate a front line if it's not playing against other NFL 1's.

You sound very disappointed. It will get better. Many of your starters did not play.

    • So if I have this straight….   Apparently, Kafka, the Giants OC, and a favorite of some here, did not make the second round of interviews.     The Colts are down to 7 candidates and he’s not one of them. 
    • Depending what they do with Ryan, Foles, MAC, Kelly, and Moore the Colts could free up to $40 million in cap space. Plus, only 51 players count against the cap so they are counting players against the cap that will fall off. 
    • First of all I just have to say I have a strong distaste for Tom Brady but I’d sign him in a heartbeat under a year contract and then draft CJ Stroud or Levis whoever falls to us at number 4. Have them sit behind Brady and truly learn how to be a QB in the NFL. With the remaining picks provide him with some weapons and protection and bolster the defensive side of the ball. 
    • Agreed, but how much of "a better player or two MORE" does a team need at the end of every season?    That's why the teams strive to find the prototypical or modern era franchise QB, so that the QB can make that game winning drive in last minute or a couple of comeback game changing drives needed in playoffs against strong contenders, in addition to strong and consistent QB play throughout regular season. Such QBs deserve to get paid, and Bengals have found that franchise QB in Burrow who has proven so much BEFORE getting paid a lot.    Problem with the QB market is not that the likes of Rodgers, Burrow, Mahomes get paid... The problem is that barely above average QBs such as the likes of Cousins, Goff, Wentz, Jones, Carr, Watson (personal and legal problems), and few others continue to demand elite QB money and drive up the QB market when they don't deserve that kind of contract, while neither proving BEFORE OR AFTER getting that money.    If I'd wanna complain about QBs getting paid huge money that makes the team worse, I'd complain about those Pretenders who would get paid abhorrent, unproven and undeserved pay while these QBs make their team worse by BOTH blocking large part of the cap space and NOT playing to the highest level of QB play their contracts would suggest.    Back to your point, yes, Bengals would lose a key player or more both in offense and defense when Burrow's contract peaks in salary cap space... But he's proven he can compensate that loss, which is not even close to the situation of not even having found our franchise QB yet, and still a better problem than having a QB who pretends to be a franchise QB not being able to win multiple playoff games.
