Colts Vs. Cardinals Game Day Thread


Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts Nation!   :)  Our Indianapolis Colts move on from their season opening road loss at the Los Angeles Rams, as they play, and host their second consecutive NFC West opponent as they host the visiting Arizona Cardinals, who also lost at the Detroit Lions last Sunday.

 

Andrew Luck again won't play in today's game against the Cardinals, so both Scott Tolzien and Jacoby Bissett may see action at QB  for the Colts.  

Today is also the homecoming of former Interim Head Coach Bruce Arians, who took over the leadership and responsibility leading the Colts to a 9-3 record between Week 5 through 16 of the 2012 season, while current Head Coach Chuck Pagano was recovering from leukemia, and started the Colts Strong campaign for Coach Pagano at the .time.

 

Cardinals are making the first regular season visit to Indianapolis, and also their first visit to Lucas Oil Stadium (the building) in 12 years since 2004.  Kickoff is after 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time. 

 

NO injuries, and GO COLTS!!!!!    :cheer:    :coltslogo: .    :1colts:   :colts:  :coltslogo: . :cheer:

There's a chance in this game. As bad as the Colts played last week, they're at home and they've got a new starting QB. Jacoby Brissett is gonna be just fine. I believe he'll lift up the rest of the team. Whether that translates to a W, I'm not sure. But it'll be way better than last week

 We have a half dozen regulars out...including our QB, starting center and two key secondary people...

Our QB hardly knows our plays or his teammates.

 

...Give me some more optimism here.. need it....How can we win this one?

Not just keep it close..but win

Well, the Colts couldn't possibly play worse than they did last week. Only way is up.

Now that the games are locked and no one can steal my idea, I can let the cat out of the bag. I started Brissett in one of my Draft Kings lineups today. It was a 3 dollar card, but if he goes off (doubtful, but not impossible) then, I guarantee not many others started him. He was so cheap ($4,500) that I was able to load up at every other position.

 

I paired him up with TY too. :)

 

Edit: LOL. Only 1.2% of all lineups played Brissett.

    • This. Though I could probably be talked into a 1st for Stafford.     But yeah, CB is in a REALLY tough spot. Layer on the fact that he doesn't have a    longer term answer at any of Edge rusher, L-OT and WR-1 on the roster and he has   his work cut out for him.   
    • Anyone think there’s a chance he leaves San Fran? They’ve got a lot of decisions to make and can’t franchise tag him, as well as a very limited amount of cap space. We could certainly outbid them.    Imagine a left side of him and Big Q with Jonathan Taylor running behind them. We would easily have the best line in the game. 
    • In Ballard I trust. He is intuitive and a consensus builder. This is a great opportunity to use this decision to refine your offensive strategy. Remember, Reich loves the RPO and what he could do with a mobile QB.
    • Ballard didn't say it was definite.   He didn't rule it out.   He just said as of this minute.    I think he's hoping to find out in April and May.      He still might end up deciding Eason is OK as the back-up.   I was only trying to impress upon those in the "Throw Jacob Eason in and see what we have" crowd that Ballard has crushed that dream for 2021.    But I wouldn't rule out 2022....  at least not yet.  
    • TY - 2Y/22M - he can still play but he’s not Tyreek Hill taking the top of defenses anymore, and with his disappearing act at the beginning of the year I’m afraid to sign him any longer or with too much guaranteed. Partly for sentimental reasons I want him to stay, but I do think he’s still got some juice.    Mack - 1Y/1M - Likable player but due to his position and injury, no way can I justify giving him much more than vet minimum.    Houston - 1Y/8M - Fell off a lot this year compared to his first year. Still our best edge player, basically by default and I’d be hoping we can get a more 2019 performance out of him at arguably our weakest position on the team.    Autry - Walk. He will price himself out with an inflated sense of value because he’s gotten decent sack numbers, but he is the definition of JAG and I’d only keep him if he agreed to a minimum contract.    Rhodes - 1Y/6M - He was a stud this year. If we could guarantee that he won’t revert back to his last two years in Minnesota I would be willing to go longer and higher. With how much he fell off after getting paid the first time, I’m not giving him a long term deal.    Walker - 1Y/2M - He was playing a very small percentage of downs at the end of the year so I’m keeping him less based on ability and more based on leadership and football savvy.    Hooker - Walk. Both sides need to just move on. I’d keep him at minimum too but I think both sides want a fresh start. Also a little miscast in the current defense so no reason to force a square peg into a round hole.    Brissett - 1Y/5M - Too big of a fan of Brissett as a man to want to see him leave. I don’t want him starting but he’s a very solid backup and compared to the 20M we gave him last year, I can live with his salary being at 1/4 of that this year.    Pascal and MAC both tendered at 2.24M. I want to bring in Kenny Golladay or Allen Robinson and Pascal is JAG so he’s not falling into my future plans much. I’m a big fan of MAC and I wouldn’t mind seeing him play the Jack Doyle role. He’s a better blocker, has better hands, and is more explosive.    I may be lowballing some guys but I’d hate to fall into the trap of overvaluing our guys and keeping them just because you want to keep your own. Unfortunately, I think the five most important positions on the team also coincide with our five weakest positions on the team; QB, WR, CB, DE, and LT. Fortunately we’ve got a good cap situation and this is the perfect year to be needing a QB.
