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

    • Stop it.  You sound like you're just being argumentative.     DUH.  In past year's a QB would not be BPA.  This year it is, but LG isn't.   Yes, the goal was to find OL players.  That's what I said.  That's why they drafted Nelson, and why they drafted Smith after they drafted Nelson.  They ignored positional value by placing the protection of Luck as the highest priority of the 2018 draft.  Lynch never had that as a priority.   The bolded must be over your head.  It involves apportioning limited resources.  If a QBs legs can protect himself better than another QBs legs can protect himself, then you have to spend incrementally less on olinemen and free's up incrementally more on other positions that matter.    Ballard didn't want Luck to have to use his legs to protect himself, as he did with the previous olines.  Its elementary, so stop pretending its wrong..  
    • They would have, IF we had gotten a #1 CB, EDGE and WR in free agency like the Broncos did with Peyton at the helm - Talib, Ware and Sanders are your clear cut examples. Again, you need that marquee QB to build around. In that situation, Elway was clearly thinking 3 year window. If it is truly a 3 year window, the sense of urgency is shown more with free agency augmentation of existing talent, IMO.   But the 3 year window is definitely more imaginary in the fan's mind for a team devoid of talent if you only relied on the draft, which has played itself out in our record so far. If we had Luck healthy, this team probably wins the division, IMO, and in a weaker AFC, IMO, could have been in the divisional round.  That is, without FA moves. That is why I have been harping on FA as a must have to augment draft pick development to go further in the playoffs. We could have still spent our draft capital on what we did and still had similar results as the 49ers, but probably not the exact same since not enough was invested in our DL from years past that I hope Ballard changes moving forward.
