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...

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...

    • To The Colts Fans, Well Done! 
    • First thought is that was a true team win, It was fun to watch in person how everyone got involved on the final drive and the defense sealed it.    I have taken the passion out of my comments as well as not to cloud issues    Two things stick out and it could be the this teams undoing if not corrected   I know we have spoken about the offensive line issues and what I saw at times was that Pinter quit on a few plays after being beaten and that is not good. Case in point was when Pinter got bull rushed (and so many times he did) he just sat there instead of trying to get up and follow the play that was extended. He may have gotten dinged up but that was not good to watch. He and Smith just missed assignment after assignment and showed no emotion at all. I know keeping your cool is important (Ask Chris Jones) but unemotional play leads to other issues.   Matt Ryan average pocket time (time between snap and throw or pressure in seconds) per PFR: 2018 - 2.3 2019 - 2.5 2020 - 2.6 2021 - 2.4 2022 - 1.6.  its easy to see why because opponents are in his face all day long. Matt Ryan entered the game with a 7.4 passer rating when pressured, and so the Chiefs brought a lot of it.   This has a lot to do with his bad play and he will get injured if this keeps up.   There is no way Reich and the other coaches miss this in film study and I hope their level of concern brings needed change     
    • He plays like the aged quarterback he is. Unless everyone around him is perfect, he screws up.
    • You’re telling me what you want.   I’m telling you what we have.   We don’t have what you want.  Not available unless we make a trade or a PS claim from another team.    As for weight,  Glow was 310 and he was mostly solid.   Some players can perform at a lighter weight with good technique and an understanding of leverage.  It’s not only about raw strength.
