If it’s an injury that will linger for weeks and weeks, it’s to the point that I’d just cut him.  Non availability makes him useless, despite his so called promise. 

Not enough quality depth to do that Rock.

So in the only somewhat meaningful Pre-Season game which is the 3rd game where the starters play a whole Half we outplay the 49ers. Led 7-6 at Half. Our 1st string outplayed their's and our backups outplayed their backups as well. ESPN Power Rankings has the 49ers ranked 15th and us at #32. So are we now 14th :funny::sarcasm:.

 

-All kidding aside I liked what I seen tonight from Andrew and just overall on both sides of the ball. Pre-Season in general is meaningless and always has been to me with the exception of the 3rd game because the Starters play alot in that game. Very encouraging game if you ask me. Hopefully Mack and AC will play on opening day when the W/L category counts.

I hear what you’re saying, but he’s NOT depth if he’s not available.  He has rarely been available.

Great 23-17 win by the Colts yesterday.    :default_20smile:   Though only the third preseason game, Colts outdueled the 49ers, especially Jimmy Garafallo and Alfred Morris. 

 

Colts rookie Mike Badgeley  contributing most of the game scoring with his five field goals and two PAT's,  along with the two ouchdowns by Christine Michael, and the pass play from Andrew Luck  to Eric Ebron.

 

Now the pressure begins to the next level, as the reserve players, undrafted rookies, and free agents, prepare for the last preseason game in less than a week.  Colts and all the NFL teams management, players, and coaching staffs, will start as early as Thursday Night, the radical cutdown, and even trades through the waiver wire, from the current 90-man training camp roster, to the final 53-man regular season roster next weekend.

 

All  Week 4 Preseason Games by NFL Teams also usually plays on the last Thursday Night in August.   Colts prepare twice for the I=74 series with the Cincinnati Bengals in both Paul Brown Stadium, and Lucas Oil Stadium for the Regular Season Opener on September 9.

 

Great luck to the Colts, and the rest of the NFL players making the final cut after Thursday, and the Colts will try to finish their 2018 NFL preseason at 3-1 from The Queen City.  We'll see all of you here in the Colts Game Day Forum on Thursday, and GO COLTS!!!!!  :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts:  :coltslogo:    :D

    • You want me to explain why comparing Peyton Manning and Chad Kelly is a terrible analogy??
    • Didn't you just describe 70% of all Twitter users? 
    • I wonder which account is Kevin Bowen on here? He seems often to quote stuff I read here first.  Anyone else notice that? I wouldn't be surprised if he's either lurking or he's one of the regulars here.  
    • Mayfield and Rogers equal?    "You can't be serious!" -John McEnroe 
    • Yeah, if you ALSO take away his 3 best linemen you might approximate what Luck was dealing with his first 3 years.  Then we'd see an apples to apples type comparison to Luck's early years and his.  I think Mahomes deserves attention, but he had a stacked deck on Offense.  He also has the best TE in the league.  So arguably his top 3 weapons were in the top 5 in their positions, and Luck hasn't had any of that EVER, not even last year.  Sure, Luck finally had a line, but TY is on nobodies Top 5 list outside of this message board, and Ebron isn't deserving of a Top 5 listing wiht a blip on his resume.  Mack is a nice RB but far from Top 5 at this point.  Even though Luck STILL won't have 3 Top 5's this year, I think the scales are a bit more balanced this time around so I look forward to seeing which one excels.  If Mahomes puts up similar numbers without Hunt or Hill, (even though Kelce and their replacement back are still as good or better as our guys) then he'll unquestionably be the top QB in the league, in my view, over everyone on the list in pure talent/ability.   Rogers may have BEEN the most talented ever, but he's had some terrible seasons of late.  He'll be re-establishing his greatness as well and he has some new weapons this year to help him do that.  Same with Brady.   We'll also get a good look at Ben R. without Brown to see if he keeps up his performance.  We're lucky that Luck will get to prove it against many of those rated higher than him.  And likely, should we play well in the Playoffs, he'll have to prove it against Brady.  I would love to see Luck win against Brady in their only playoff meeting likely remaining should it happen.
