Practicing and training with the Goat has to do wonders for your confidence. We’ll probably help get the kid a job like we did for the kicker that went to Philly a few years ago.  I can’t remember his name. He helped me win a fantasy football league that year. 

How many years did Vinny sign for?  At some point we have to try to stash a kicker on the practice squad the year before he hangs it up.

That could work. But somebody will steal em if they look too good.

Wilkins running style reminds me a bit of Lamont Warren... He has a little grace to him for a big man.

Hines is not having a good day on special teams...

 

Hopefully it is just a bad day....

Lamont Warren. That name is a blast from the past. 

Then Walker throws a strike to make me look bad. :headspin:

It is very disappointing...

 

He has been the talk of camp.

Sanchez was a good place kicker at Hawaii

Williams looks alright.

 

I think he tore up the preseason last year too.

Some third teamers trying pretty hard to show they belong.

 

It is a nice change of culture.

That sound you hear is Hines tumbling down the RB depth chart...

Hines’ mistakes are coming on special teams. I don’t think he’ll drop too far on the RB depth charts.  He’ll have till next game to prove these were just game 1 jitters.

Guys like Daniels probably need to do considering who they're battling for roster spots.

It's 1 game, for all we know he can take one to the house next game.

TD Colts! Sweet play. Spider Y Banana. Walker made that look easy. 19-10 Colts.

 

Don't ever throw the Venus on a Spider Y Banana! :D

AV sounds genuinely enthusiastic. Frank Reich has really brought a great change to the team.

I said as much in an earlier post....

 

Nevertheless, it is very disappointing.

Having such a hard time creating pressure on the passer, i have no idea why we don't give Ridgeway more of a chance. He's been our best pressure creator the last couple years. I know it's third stringers now, but even last year on per snap basis Ridgeway was effective rushing the passer.

I’m not writing the kid off yet but when you keep using mid round picks to find RBs then chances are good you get your fair share of disappointments. You get what you pay for most of the time.  That said...I’m still holding out hope for him. I really want him to succeed here.

I like Wilkins.

 

He is giving off an Arian Foster type of vibe. 

 

It is still very early in his career and it can go either way, BUT I like what I see in him tonight.

Absolutely. One game does not make a career. I have seen hall of famers have some very bad days in their first NFL game.

That was ugly. 

 

There was no reason...

 

That is the type of play that could send camp fodder home early. 

 

And as I typed this he was disqualified. Deserving so. Get him out of the game and give him a head start to his next career.

Has he been bad running the ball or just on the punt returns?

    • I've been optimistic about JB since we lost our starter (Rest his soul) . But every Sunday (because hes unproven) I get nervous about JB and lose faith. So far, hes done a very good job. Doing just enough to keep us in games.    Playing vs Houston and seeing how well he did (late game the whole team went prevent so not too worried there), gave me a lot more confidence. But it's hard to trust a guy who has to earn it in front of literally everyone in the league.    I'll tell you what I do like however.  Because Brissett doesn't have this mega obvious talent as a QB, they arent throwing the ball constantly. It's like because you have a franchise QB, you feel this need to throw the ball, even in situations you shouldn't. You rarely establish a ground game, and when you do, it is only in compliment to the pass.    The Colts keep winning in different ways. They are multifaceted. So they CAN and DO play to their opponents weaknesses, and and have the ability to play almost any kind of offense (from what we have seen so far)..   with a top 5-7 QB, you just pass more. Vs KC, we would have passed more with any of the top 5 QBs in the NFL. But we didnt. Because we didnt have a top 5 QB to blur our vision from their weakness and our strength.. I think Frank experiencing this is great for our future. If JB becomes a top 10 QB (in most stats), this could mean heaps in the sense of valuing this team as a whole. Instead of everything being built around the QB, the team is built around the lines and go out.     Something I was thinking about earlier with Brady. It is my opinion that he is a system QB. He is the best system QB of all time. But hes in the perfect system for his strengths to flourish. Sometimes it's just better to have the right system QB. Maybe JB is the perfect system QB for our system. Just a thought guys.    We need to remember our addiction to winning as fans indeed blurs our own vision from seeing the true reality of things. 
    • Just saying the Jets aren't out of there minds suggesting it.
    • Seriously? That's the first I heard of that.   If that's true, that is very impressive for a backup QB to display that kind of leadership.   Never under estimate the importance of proper leadership. Sometimes I wondered if Andrew was assertive enough and this little nugget is an example of that. Jacoby on the other hand must be very assertive to have the guts to call a meeting like that. That meeting turned our season around and that's quite an impact from a backup QB that barely took any snaps last year. That's extremely impressive to me.   This team is in a great, great place if he can fill the void left by Andrew and his retirement. Its looking good so far.
    • The Colts are to the Texans what the Pats used to be to the Manning Colts. Texan fans hate the Colts with a passion. I never wear any of my Colts shirts when they play here in Houston.
    • O'Brien is in his last year if the Texans don't make the playoffs.
