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:

Hines is having a horrible game. 

 

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?

    • The Steelers are playing with their 2nd stringer also...
    • There is also two other WRs at the bottom of the screen coming open on that same play. Smh. Options everywhere
    • I hope you’ll be proven right.  I fear you won’t.   I will say that teams like JAX and TEN had more invested in their high first-round picks Bortles and Mariota than the Colts do in JB, who we traded for in a moment of immediate need.   That said, it just seems more common in the league to wait too long based on a belief that a player’s full potential is high and just around the corner.
    • they are in the playoff hunt, but not many people think they will win a super bowl.  most of the top teams have really good QBs
    • What I'm getting at, though, is that regardless of his circumstances, it's possible to evaluate a QB on the basis of his performance, abilities, traits, and perceived potential to improve. That's my viewpoint.   Of course, the rougher the circumstances and the greater the number of variables, the more complicated the evaluation becomes. But while the receivers haven't been great, we can still look at JB and see what he does well and what he doesn't do well, we can reach reasonable conclusions about why he excels or struggles in certain areas, and we can project whether he can reasonably improve and become a player worthy of an investment of time and money, and worthy of building around. Sure, it's somewhat complicated, but it's not all that difficult, IMO.   What the Colts do at QB in the offseason will depend, to a large degree, on their evaluation of JB. I am confident that they will not say 'well, JB had a rough set of circumstances, let's wait and see what he does next year.' If they strongly feel that he's good enough to build around, that will affect how seriously they pursue other options at the position. But if they aren't sold on him, I don't think they'll just say 'let's give him another year, let's give him another year.'
