It's suppose to be a delay of game penalty, correct?

 

That is my understanding.

So without Aiken taking reps from more explosive guys, we’re getting big chunk plays...  Bombs or short throws and run after the catch?

 

Not bombs, I don't think.  There was definitely some running after the catch.  At least 20 yards of running, I would say.  I can't tell for sure how long the actual passes are because I am listening to radio play by play and can't actually see what is happening.

The Colts have got to get a TD on this drive.

At least a FG but preferably a TD

My only guess is that forward progress was never called so Tomlin wasn't aware that was the call for the stop (and fumble)?  Other than that I got nothin'...

Thanks JCP. Guess I’ll have to wait on the highlights. Sounds like they’ll definitely be worth a look...  Go Horse!!!!!

Nope, the ref's huddled and ruled it that forward progression had stop before fumble.  Loud and clear.

It was.  The ref announced it.  Did Tomlin throw the flag immediately before it was announced?

As Tolzien warms up.....

 

Alcohol consumption goes up in Indiana. 

 

 

Brissett has left the medical tent. Maybe he will be okay. Hopefully for the Colts fans, Brissett is okay.

Hoping for a long Steelers drive which results in no points.  Will give Brissett a chance to go through protocol.

I doubt many people thought the Colts would be leading the Steelers 17-9 at the end of the third quarter.

 

Stats through 3 quarters:

 

PIT   IND
First Downs 12   12
Total Yards 202   256
Passing Yards 135   196
Rushing Yards 67   60
Penalties (Yds) 8(65)   8(72)
Turnovers 1   0
Punts (AVG) 5(47)   5(47)
Time of *. 20:40   23:51

    • Yep, that is a huge difference and when he went on that 5 game run at the end of the 2017 season before getting a huge contract before the 2018 season, Kyle Shanahan said he moves like Brady in the pocket but has a fast release like Romo had, faster than that of Brady, and he can make plays outside the pocket as well. Once he has more years under his belt, he will get even better. 2018 unfortunately, he went on IR in a game vs the Chiefs. Now, he will get to make amends in the SB of all games.   He is very much like a slightly better Brady during those 2001-2004 dynasty years when Brady was not near the QB he is now. He gets it that he doesn't have to do too much but when his number is called, his passing delivers what is necessary. He is definitely no slouch in the passing game. Jacoby is not at his level whatsoever. Jimmy G has anticipation and throws his guys open, and takes shots when necessary, something Jacoby is deficient in.   When the Saints scored 46 points, he did what was necessary to win, to put up 48 points, enough said.
    • 49ers, hate to say it, remind me of the early Patriots dynasty years. All the defensive talent stockpiled, it seems like watching Patriots vs Colts of the early years when the 49ers play the Chiefs. We all know what happened.    49ers prevail in a close one with Kyle Shanahan finally doing what he did not during the last few minutes of the Falcons SB vs the Patriots, run the ball to ice the game.    49ers 30 Chiefs 24
    • Thinking the 49ers win, but I feel like I'm in the minority when I say I'm rooting for Kansas City.
    • Agree. Best QB today is where it stops. He still has to earn his stripes over time. 49ers are like the early Patriots, with all the defensive talent stockpiled, and that is why they will win the SB.   Plus, this is definitely not against you but in general, I get the vibe that colored QBs are held to a different standard w.r.t the cerebral aspect of playing QB and their physical talents are somehow dismissed as not something future QBs should embrace completely for playing the QB position, and their faults aren't forgiven as easily as traditional QBs, IMO. I see it when people pounce on Lamar Jackson, Mahomes and Watson, who are being stereotyped as physical freaks for their running and athletic skills but not what they bring new to the table for the QB position. The same thing happened with Russell Wilson too when he played on a real good Seahawks team, till he won the SB and followed up with consistent QB play over these last few years, he still runs to pass but in some people's minds, he is a running QB. I get the same sense while discussing Jordan Love vs other QBs in the draft. It is a sub-conscious thing people aren't aware of or don't wish to acknowledge, IMO. @Jules, when she was still posting here, before the 2012 draft, she was the one I remember pointing out that it was an easier sell for a Midwest crowd to sell Andrew Luck over RG3 even if they had the same pros and cons but thankfully, she said, Luck had more pros and made it an easier choice. 
    • I was comparing Mahomes to Peyton w.r.t the fact that people are dogging on him for being popular in a twitter/FB era where everything is magnified. Peyton was in every "cut that meat' commercial, Sprint "rocket arm" commercial, for having done what?? Finishing with a bunch of one and dones even when he had good teams around him?? That is what I was getting at, people embracing the attention that Peyton got because he was ours but cannot objectively do the same for Mahomes when he gets the attention.    Mahomes has Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce along with a bunch of speedsters who can run go routes with serviceable RBs while Peyton had Marvin Harrison and Edge by year 2, and went 1-and-done in Year 2, the first year he finished 13-3. Mahomes is changing the way the game is played out of the pocket where a foot of separation is just enough with his laser arm. Yes, it looks like backyard ball but the awareness to realize man coverage is disguised as zone coverage to use his legs and take off is still a significant after-the-snap read improvement he has shown along with the ability to take check downs from Year 1 to his RBs despite his arm that could get 50+ yards, something Peyton took a while to realize in playoff football. Peyton had several physical limitations he made up with his cerebral aspect, it doesn't mean Mahomes' physical talent advantage should be held against him as not being one of the ways the QB position can be played.    I feel both the Chiefs and Colts teams of Mahomes' era and Peyton's era so far are defensively deficient, with more weapons on the offensive side of the ball than defensive side of the ball with just enough guys to make plays on D. That is why, like the early Patriots, the 49ers will win the SB. Mahomes is still asked to do too much for that team.
