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.

    • 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.
