Should I be concerned that Brissett looks better than Luck and Wilkins looks better than all of our RBs except maybe Mack?

Wilkins is argubly the second best rb between him and turbin.

If it s helmet to helmet, D will get flag because RB is determined to be going into protect mode. D never is in defenseless position, thus never ion protect mode.  They are in strike mode.

 

If a offensive player lowers his head and goes forward they are in strict mode.

Not in QB sneak mode, or if defender lowers as well.  It's like baseball, tie goes to the runner,  helmet to helmet goes to the offense (D gets penalty).  It has to be offense with head into defender (but not his helmet) to get offensive flag.

You can say that all you want, but I have seen multiple instances this season where the offensive player lowers their head first, makes contact with their helmet and nothing is called.  The rule is ridiculously biased against the defense.  That's why many coaches are calling for adjustments to be made.  The rule is not realistic.

Only week 2 of preseason. However, Im starting to like the potential of the defense and dislike the offense.

 

O needs help at WR.

 

With the Colts that could go back to being reversed in the regular season.  I think the offense could be ok once Luck knocks the rust off him but whoa that #2 WR position could be ugly.

It is impossible to lower your shoulders to make a hit without lowering your head.

Basically, the league wants players to make tackles with their pelvis first.

 

Joking...kinda.

    • Yeah I am ok with it, it was probably time for Kyle to explore other avenues. He helped us win a WS so it is all good.
    • I will be wearing the blue TY Hilton jersey that I have.  I have 88, 18, 12, 13, 87 jerseys. I need 56, 53, 98, and 99.
    • That sucks I really liked Len, enjoyed his play by play for years. 
    • Do you think Bill Belichick has cornered the market on ideas?   Do you think he does not make mistakes?   BB made Dont’a Hightower one of the NFL ‘s highest paid players.  So, poof,  there goes your Leonard argument.  When players perform at a premium level you pay them what they’re worth.   Period.   You’re badly over-thinking this.   There is no perfect formula to a championship.   You think Ballard is not aware that when he pays a guard premium money that means he’ll be paying other positions less than premium.   He 100 percent knows that.     It’s always, Always, ALWAYS better to have too much talent than not enough.  Dallas has paid a fortune into its OL for years.   Smith, Martin, used to have Frederick at Center.  Used to have a good guard who left in FA, and then Collins who is now getting paid.   3 of their 5 getting top money and it used to be 4 before Frederick had to retire early.   They had a top 3 OL for years.   They figured out the rest of the roster.     They’re paying big money while a good number of younger players are on their cheaper rookie contracts.   That’s life for GM’s in the NFL.  Too much talent is always a good thing.    You never take a lesser player who plays a premium position over a much better player at a so-called non-premium position.   Never.   Do you think it’s a coincidence that the play of the Colts OL dramatically improved when Nelson joined the team?   Come on....   Sorry, but your logic is twisted beyond all recognition.     
    • Dang, four playoff spots up got grabs between six teams.
