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.

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.

    • The Eagles are super banged up! Top 2 WR out now their starting RB. Going be hard for them to score I think.
    • Put me in the camp calling for a free agent WR as well as one taken high in the draft. We all know that it takes a couple of years to hit your stride as a pro WR. I don’t think the team can wait for that. The Colts need to improve at this position immediately, especially with TY showing the inevitable signs of aging, i.e. he’s dinged up constantly. I’m not sure what will be out there next year FA-wise, but I know this: they can’t fix this problem with draft picks alone. 
    • https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/american-football/50448708   Looks like he's not given up on getting a gig in then NFL, but acting like this is getting to endear him to organisations. I can understand that he might not agree with the terms of the workout, but you've got to handle it more professionally than this.    Shame, I really do think he has talent. 
    • Most of us HATE injustice. We saw it with the OJ situation: part of the country wanted justice for all of the times police overstepped their boundaries and innocent people got arrested or convicted. The other part of our population wanted a murderer convicted for killing two people. Both sides wanted justice.         Same is true for police brutality and social injustice. To me, these are individual acts done by individuals and protests against the flag are misguided. It’s saying this country stands for injustice and inequality and nothing can be further from the truth.          We live in a country that provides the opportunity for all people to do well: Athletes, Doctors, Businessmen, Pastors, Actors and Musicians have reaped the benefits of living in this great country.         I have no problem with anyone protesting individual acts of racism or injustice. But to protest the flag is misguided.
