Colts Vs. Ravens Monday Night Football Preseason Game Thread

Recommended Posts

One thing I have been slightly impressed with is that every running play, Nelson is pushing his guy back it seems. Opening so big holes. I think with a solid LT next to him, those holes will get bigger. This helping our running backs. Slauson also seemed to be opening some holes too

In the regular season, I sure hope the offense is more attacking.  Try to be more effecient, yes, but still remember what Luck does best.

If this game is any indication, we may see a lot of press man (as usual). Luck’s gonna have to believe in someone besides TY if we’re gonna have a dynamic offense this season.

I think he has TY and Jack but he does need more timing and chemistry with the others.

Just now, Mr.Debonair said:

TY Hilton has nobody to take the heat off him. This offense lacks explosiveness 

TY is the explosiveness. We need the possession receiver. I think Rogers can be that but he and Luck gotta get in sync.

What I like the most from Nelson is that even when he is beat (1 play a saw tonight) He doesn't give up on the play and continues to chase or find a new guy to hit. You see some O lineman just give up on the play if they initially get beat by their man.

Just like I said in the chat I think we might have seem some of the " mental" rust from Luck tonight. I can for sure relate to that though so I could be bias.

Almost would not be surprised if on opening day Hines is not on team anymore.

So every time a RB lowers their head, it’s a penalty?

So Hines fumbles again he stinks cant hang onto the ball to save his life.

Is it possible that Hines could work his way off the team through 4 preseason games if he continues to play like this?  This is very disheartening and something this Colts team can't afford.

1st half recap -  Luck was rusty.   Held onto the ball way too long.  He wont stay healthy.   Running game wasn't run well.

Im tired of these middle to late round RBs. Colts need to address the RB situation and use a higher draft pick. Or sign Bell.

You can work on ball security. Maybe a year on the practice squad will help Hines.

I agree that these mid round projects are getting old. Got to kiss a lot of frogs in hopes you luck into a good back.  You get what you pay for.

He should have done that in college. Fumbled way to much at N. C. State.

Guy just needs to make a play or two. Get his confidence up. It's mental.

    • Yeah, I'm with @Irish YJ on this one. In order to draw conclusions about the bust rates of the WR position and to make decisions about whether to draft one in the 1st round, you need to 1. get big enough sample for it to means something(eliminate noise) and 2. compare it to other positions because 50% bust rate(not a real number, just putting it here for demonstration purposes) means nothing if the bust rate for DL is 65(again not real number, just for demonstration purposes - I don't know what the real numbers are).   And even then like Irish mentioned, different draft classes have different strengths and at different stages of the draft... for example you can have a really strong DL draft in the 1st and have all of them go in the top 25 and a relatively weak WR class, but have a great WR drop to you to 26(lets say because of all the great DLs). So the question is do you draft the good WR or a sub-par DL? To me the answer is obvious... you draft the best value player... WR or not. 
    • I'm not saying anything against it, i prefer to watch the draft and get the picks before they are announced so i can focus more on the commentary.   My displeasure comes from the whole "don't spoil it" community. To me, I was going to get that information later on, so why not get it now? It's not going to ruin anything for me, I'd still enjoy or dislike the event no matter what. It's all about getting that information. Some people want it ASAP and some people like waiting in suspense I guess.   I really don't get it from here on the fan forum. It's pretty simple. Don't visit the forum when the Colts are on the clock? It's like a whole 5 min total you would have to avoid the forum.  If you're coming to the forum while the colts are on the clock then you want the pick spoiled IMHO.
    • I know that's a joke.   Just wanted to say, while I'm sure Brissett had positive things to say about McDaniels, I'm also pretty sure that Ballard offering McDaniels the job wasn't solely based on Brissett's recommendation. I'd say that represented less than 5% of the equation. Ballard did A LOT of work on McDaniels, but McDaniels proved to be untrustworthy. I'm glad it happened when it did, and not a month or a year later...   And it would be the same if Ballard asked Nelson his opinion of someone like Tillery. I wouldn't expect that Ballard would say 'Q likes him, that's good enough for me.' 
    • I am holding out hope that a Mr. Clelin Ferrell is still on the board  when the Draft gets to our spot in first round       GO GET EM MR. BALLARD !!!!!!!!
    • I'd also like to add that 8 of the 14 receivers listed in the second half of round 1 (17-32) are labelled as misses, with 2 of them still unproven and 2 others being only somewhat hits, only Cooks and Hopkins have been clear hits. Higher first's have better odds, but after that it is a big issue finding a good player until rounds 2 and 3
