He must be from Princeton, Evansville or went to school in Indiana. There is no more of a loyal Hoosier than you. :)

 

I was speaking to my neighbor of 10 years a couple of weeks ago. He told me that he grew up in Indiana -- a city called Hobart. He is a very nice guy.

He was a Brickie

That would be the reason I like Keenan Cole and MarQueis Gray

IF the coaching staff has already given Tolz the keys then I fault the coaching staff, but  it is what it is.  If they haven't settled on the starter then they owe themselves to let Morris run with the 1's.  I hope they haven't boxed themselves into a corner.  We shall see.

Go COLTS!

 

I think it's set. Walker is not ready yet, and all I heard is, Morris is not a practice guy, he has problems grasping the playbook. They won't start a guy who they can't gameplan on over Tolzien, just because the guy looked good in a preseason game with vanilla playcalling against a 3rd team defense.

I agree though, I'm curious to see Morris with the 2nd team, maybe a few snaps with the 1st-s. (Altough Tolzien will probably get extended look next week as starters usually do. So I'm not sure there will be any free snaps left with the first team for Morris. But with the seconds, I definitely would like to see him..)

Absolutely I can. Tolzien threw the ball accurately, and I don't understand why everyone is acting like he was bad today.

 

 

Tolzien threw the ball well today. All short stuff, but he hit his receivers, even against tight coverage and with poor protection. Almost every completion from Walker has been high, and the receiver has had to jump to make the catch.

 

Morris wasn't good last week either, aside from the last drive.

 

I'm convinced Tolzien is significantly better than Walker and Morris. Doesn't mean I'm a Tolzien fan, but it's crazy to me that everyone is banging Tolzien while itching to see two guys that are clearly worse.

 

Agreed, but i don't particularly like Tolzien either...

 

Here is a list of QB's taken the last 5 years in round 4 and higher i probably would rather have right now-

Morris is not the next Montana so everyone needs to stop

 

Seems funny to me, many arguing about playing newer UDFA QB's instead of an older and game tested UDFA.

 

To me, It's like debating who has the worst winter weather. Fargo ND, Minneapolis, MN, or Buffalo NY..

 

One has to be better than the other 2, but none seem enticing....

Colts unfortunately lost their second straight preseason game and are 0 and 2, not the result we wanted again  tonight.   Colts next play the Pittsburgh Steelers next Sunday, but they may have an advantage.  Colts have an off day on Sunday,  and the coaching staff expect  see and scout the Steelers, as Pittsburgh is hosting the Atlanta Falcons Sunday afternoon, and televised on the NFL Network. I'm sure the Steelers Vs. Falcons game at Pittsburgh will impact the Colts game preparation next weekend.

 

Third time and game might be the charm, as Indianapolis is trying to avoid being winless, before their regular season finale with the Cincinnati Bengals on August 31.

 

We also might hear further news in the other developing story if Andrew Luck is healthy physically to clear himself from the PUP list, and be ready to play the regular season opener at the L.A. Rams, if not later, for the season opener at LOS when they host the return of Bruce Arians, and the Arizona Cardinals.

 

Enjoy another week in the meantime between Colts game, we will see you here as the Colts travel again at Pittsburgh, and their goal is to win to next two preseason games to even their record at 2-2 and .500.

 

Stay Colts Strong, and GO COLTS!  :)    :coltslogo:  :1colts: :colts:  :coltslogo:

I'd still rather have him at safety covering TEs with his size and coming up and making licks....maybe this is just Pagano getting him coverage work before moving him back to safety.

 

I think they are counting on (hoping for ) Hooker and Geathers as FS and SS, with Green doing some CB, and most likely covering TE's in a 'Big Nickel' and Dime sub package.  At least, that's how i see it moving forward...

    • I am not excited by the move either but if all goes according to plan Foles will never play a meaningful snap for the Colts.  I am not going to get outraged by a guy who is being signed hoping he never plays.
    • I don’t think Foles is very good at all but I get it.  This is what Foles should be, a back up, not a starter.  Someone made a good point that he may be a bit helpful at teaching Ryan the offense.  Although I believe Ehlinger knew the offense better than Eason and Hundley last year and was teaching it to Hundley.    I said Eason was a waste of a draft pick. A year later I said Ehlinger was a waste of a draft pick. This signing confirms it.      
    • You don’t really draft QBs in the 6th round “expecting that they can play”. You are hoping that they can become a back up.  It’s not that unusual to see a team not trust a second year sixth round pick as their back up QB if they have big expectations for that season.     Tom Brady is by far the exception.  You don’t find starting QBs let alone hall of famers in the sixth round of the draft.  You tend to find Curtis Painters,  who was also a sixth round pick, that when you give them a chance you realize real fast they have no business being in the NFL.  I am not saying Sam will be another Curtis Painter but I am willing to bet he’s closer Painter than Brady.   The Colts aren’t just making this decision off a wild guess either.  They have watched Sam in camp, practice, and pre-season games and I can promise you have the studied that tape and have decided he’s not ready for that role right now.  They are more educated on this than anyone here and it’s their job to make decisions like this, and get them right, even if it means not always seeing what they can or can’t do in a game.  
    • He's not really "similar to Ryan" though.  I'm all for it if it's 2M or less, which would allow us to do some other things that we need to in FA.    If it's more than that, especially substantially more than that, then you have to consider why they wouldn't go after someone that's performed clearly better like Fitzpatrick, who is still out there.   We also have to be honest about Foles in his current state. Last season, he couldn't beat out Dalton. And the two years prior he had horrible ratings.
