It appears that way lol.  

 

Though, I am speaking more about Grant, don't think he's that good.

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

Didn’t see there was a problem with them but that the implementation is clumsy

 

They'll relax some in season, competition committee will tweak it over time.

It's early, not going to panic yet but yeah he's been 100% invisible.

We just need to temper expectations for Luck early on. Rust is a real thing.

I can't argue that from what I've seen tonight.

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.

Ridgeway. Simon. Leonard. Geathers. Hooker. We’ve got some potential out there. And I didn’t mention Autry or Sheard.

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.

Yep. He was more of a penetrating 3 tech, not a 2 gap kind of guy.

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.

    • another project lower round draft pick with a lot of dropped passes, was in the low rounds for a reason, fast but couldnt catch the ball
    • It took me a while getting used to foreign slang, sarcasm, and other stuff, but it is fun.    I still watch a lot of UK, Irish, and other TV programming. I prefer their dramas and noirs to most of US standard programming. 
    • It's a risk benefit decision. Do you want a QB that raises the level of your WRs and removes stress form your D, or a QB that lowers the level of your WRs and adds stress to your OL (time to throw) and requires your D to play perfect.....  
    • If we win next week and Houston loses, we would once again be in the lead in the South, as crazy as that sounds. Hypothetically, let’s say we win and the cows lose In order of tiebreakers: 1. Record- 7-5 v 7-5, next tiebreaker 2. Head to Head- 1-1 v 1-1, next tiebreaker 3. Division Record- 4-1 (I) v 3-1 (H) Well hot damn, somehow we may escape this impending doom. There’s my glimmer of hope for this season I’ve been searching for    
    • Expecting JB to perform like Luck is just plain silly.  There is a huge difference talent wise between the two.  2017s team was garbage.  2018 team developed nicely and Luck took advantage with TY, Inman a veteran who was signed off the street, and Ebron who had a great year.  This year it's TY and that's it and he's missed three games and played hurt last night.  Everyone else is nothing special due to the injuries.  No real weapons for JB.  Plain and simple.
