The fact that Michael and Ferguson got all of the 1st team reps is a joke.

 

Its just preseason, Imo they are just trying to ease the rookie RB's into the league a little. LEttign the guys with experience try and prove themselves.

Just get Hines out in space. Let him make a couple plays and I think he will settle down. Doesn't mean he won't make another mistake. He's got the talent as a RB WR. I don't think and didn't think punt return was for him. Just keep feeding the guy and I think he will perk up.

His speed

 

And that’s fine, I was intrigued to watch his tape whenever we drafted him because of his speed too. But when I actually sat down and watched him, I was unimpressed, especially in the run game. The fact that he’s not even showing honk the return game? Not good for him.

It's raining here, so my directv feed is out, grrrr.  LOL.  Looks like we are on the board tho, wooohooo !!!

I'm laughing with you not at you JRN because whenever it rained my reception went on the fritz too. I won't miss that aggravation anymore since I dropped DTV & went back to Dish Network. Hang in there. I know exactly how frustrating that is. Trust me.

 

I forgot we played on ESPN tonight, but my DVR will record the game tomorrow on NFL Network at 3 PM CST.

 

Not much else to say other than I miss Gruden in the booth. #Spider Y Banana Withdrawal. haha

that video sure dont show any "grey" area plays that we are complaining about 

 

 

Grey area will get flags (refs always told err on side of safety), especially in pre-season.  Riveron says the calls may eventually get video review.  That'll lengthen games though...

    • Don’t you fret though, could be right there staring at the next FS you always gushed over!
    • Lamar was a better passer, player, and producer in college than was Willis, I personally don't even think it's close. Jalen Hurts at Oklahoma is a much better comparison to Lamar, and he went in the second. (By the way, I think Lamar and Hurts both are limited and will have problems succeeding in the playoffs. I could be wrong, and I hope they both succeed, but they both have some issues.) Willis dropped primarily because of his limitations as a passer, and he got drafted where backups normally get drafted because his projected ceiling is probably decent backup QB, IMO.   No matter what, it starts with being able to perform from the pocket. Teams aren't just handing their offense over to QBs who can't make plays in the passing game. What has changed -- is changing? -- is the willingness of pro coaches to weaponize QB run plays more frequently. But consistent ability as a passer is still a baseline requirement.    I also meant to mention your comment about WR contracts. I don't see that bubble bursting, but I do wonder if the sharp acceleration from the last couple seasons will flatten out. Still, that doesn't mean teams won't lean heavily on the run. The Eagles, Niners, and Washington all paid young WRs big money this offseason; the Eagles and Commanders are #3 and #4 in rushing attempts so far, and the Niners would prefer to be a top ten rushing team also.    Yeah, we agree about smash mouth football. I think any team that has sustained success has to be able to make plays in the passing game. Even in the regular season, you have to be an outstanding rushing team if you're going to rely on the run to win games. And you probably still have to be efficient passing, which is the big difference between the Eagles (10-1, 6.9 net yards/attempt, 27.5 points/game) and the Commanders (7-5, 5.6 net yards/attempt, 19.4 points/game). So you still need a capable QB, which we don't have.
    • Time to burn it down.  It's obvious the team we are putting on the field is not  talented enough to compete in this league.  Jim has let Ballard run this team into the ground.  Love Jeff as a coach but even he can't get this team motivated.  The culture of the Colts is that of a team that has no pride, no heart, just playing for a paycheck, it's really getting embarrassing to be a fan.
    • This is the best comment of the thread lol!  
    • It's a complementary game, one can't completely judge the defense without looking at how the offense has done over the years.   Look around the league on good offenses, Colts need to get multidimensional, not just relying on good running game to expect defense to come with stop every time. Colts are built in an old style way, that doesn't always bring the victory in today's NFL. You're not gonna win games in playoffs this way beating the likes of KC, BUF, PHI, DAL, MIN, CIN, BAL, MIA in a stretch in must-win games. Titans have similar problem, even with a tremendous coaching staff, they need better passing game to compete in playoffs.    This team needs a better, all-around attacking offensive scheme and serious infusion of talent along the trenches and skill positions on both sides. If Colts get a good coaching hire and better scheme on offense and could keep key players on defense and build around them, and also find a franchise QB, this defense can consistently beat great teams.    As you can see, it's a process over next few years and you need a management (GM) with better vision and solid plan to begin with.
