Mine has multiple versions of the same channel.  Some HD, some not.  I have no understanding why it's like that. So far I hate this box

Agreed, my provider has a channel list that does not match up at all to what my TV has lol. We’ve started our own list that we keep on the wall. I just added Fox 59 to the list haha...

The channel list is unreadable.  It's in like .0005 font.  I went into spectrum and asked them if they didn't think it was ridiculous.  They said it was lol

We have to get some edge rushers that can get home. 

You're not going to get a good idea of what we've got against Wilson.

  • I see the Colts defense looking like straight garbage as usual.  Seattle just went right through them. 

RW is not a JV QB

We are missing Hooker and Geathers.  I still want to see some pressure. Russell is probably not the QB to come reckless off the edge against though...  But I’d like to see us collapse the pocket.

We need to find a way to get some more Pass Rush against the better QB's. It's just the 1st game of the Pre-Season so nothing to worry about right now. Wilson is a Great QB and did what he normally does LOL

D is probably going to suck this year but I don't think that's going to surprise anyone.  Another year or so until we have a chance of being serious contenders.  Luck can carry us on his surgically repaired shoulder only so far.

Offense at least looks better!

How did Luck look on the opening drive? I missed the first Colts drive except the field goal due to tech difficulties.

I think the O will surprise. Our defense on the other hand needs help.

Breeland is still out there and so is Mack supposedly.

    • So the head to head matchup doesn’t mean anything? That’s kind of strange.
    • Gonna disagree on the underlying premise here. Reich has been building the offense around a scheme, more than a person. Sure play calling is subject to personnel, but Reich doesn't want to build something predicated on a person. He wants guys, QB included, that fit his offensive scheme.  The things that are causing him to hold onto the ball a long time, are the real issues, and are not exactly easy to solve. They are the same things he's been struggling with consistently since college. Again, IMO, Reich wants to build more around a scheme, not a player. Do you really think he wants to change his coaching scheme/identity?    Also, on elite slot guy, Brissett has struggled to hit open slots all year in the seam +5 yards, and especially +10. The seam is prime time locale for slots and TEs, and JB simply missed them most of year. Plenty of struggles in this area before injuries took their toll, and plenty of all-22 shots showing open guys in the seam even after the injuries. You can look at Nextgen's passing charts on JB and see the same thing.   Hypothetically speaking, what specifically is needed to promote JB's strengths. We already have a top 5ish OL and running game. We had two pretty good TEs most of the year. Sure we had injury issues with WRs, but we still had plenty of open guys even with replacement guys.    Reich's O is already a lot of short passes, and occasional deep shots. The deep shots aren't necessarily to an area though (some are), that's more a Chud type O. So you're basically saying mask his inability to be accurate, and Reich should change his core scheme principal instead of finding a player to fit his offensive philosophy?  Don't agree here. JB simply didn't go deep a lot early. They tried to go deep more later, but simply was not successful. Take a look at the Nextgen weekly charts.    You also need to take into account that teams started playing us different after they got tape on JB. They started zoning more, which JB also struggled with, even with WRs getting open. They also started focusing on the run and daring him to pass, playing farther off the line. Even some of the worst passing Ds gave him significant trouble. There are very real reasons why he was turned into a game manager several games.  To wrap this up, he's no AR, but he's also deficient in a lot of areas and not a lot of other guys either. His average rank for instance in the 4 core QB measurements (YPG, QBR, Comp%, AVG) are 27th IIRC. While even a game manager QB like Jimmy G's average was 9th. I'm just not sure a coach, or an organization should scrap or change drastically, the scheme of the coach they hired to install that scheme. Not sure that they should be pressed into augmenting personnel on either side of the ball to mask deficiencies for a guy that might not fit the teams O scheme in the first place. Would you ask Andy Reid to change his scheme to fit JB?
    • I just can't see it. We don't have the pieces to have a QB just manage a game. 
    • Yes, Oakland had Record: 7-9 with an SOS of .482 Indy had record: 7-9 with an SOS of .492   So they get the nod.
