Looking at this thread....

 

Remember...  the Eagles ARE the defending Super Bowl Champions.   And Wentz is Luck 2.0.

 

They are really good.   Really talented.

 

We have there former OC. It should be more competitive and close

Yeah but it was simple play calling nothing special. Our D just let them walk down the field.

We let a rusty Wentz cake walk into the end zone on his first drive back from injury. Guy hadn’t even thrown a meaningful pass all year.  Hopefully that’s all he gets. 

 

So it was fine when a rusty Luck looked good week one, but it’s not ok when a rusty Wentz looks good?

 

Come on now...

The TD went to Zack Ertz.   He has caught many touchdowns.

 

It went to Dallas Goedert actually.

Yep, at least that one was on the Eagles.  I was about ready to :tvsmash:

No, it went to Dallas Goedert.  He has 2 career catches, 1 for 4 yards in a prior game, and the TD pass a few minutes ago.

It's pretty amazing how often it happens.  At least it's not just the Colts.

Just like it’s simple play calling when our offense does well.    The two franchises have things in common.

 

Philly is good.

The key is to not let Wentz go wild. We know he’s going to look good in his first game back. But can’t let him put up video game numbers

Either I misheard or the radio play-by-play guy was very confused.  I am cooking while I'm listening, so maybe I misheard.  I'm pretty sure that's what he said, though.

What? Luck played some preseason.  Wentz comes into this game essentially cold facing live bullets. Still had a better first drive than Luck did in his first preseason drive.

Wentz not showing much rust doesn't help.  Finding the seams and putting it right where it needs to be.  We're in trouble if we can't generate any pressure.

But we don’t have their talent on either side of the ball.

 

This could be a looooong day for us.

 

Hope not...   but could be...

Most people need to realize that. I actually rarely pick us to lose and am one of the most Positive Posters on here but I had us losing this game. We could still win but it's highly doubtful. Philly are the SB Champions at home and have a guy that is a Top 5-10 QB in the league back.

    • Ok. Thanks for replying, Dave. I noticed that I had not seen you in a while. Glad to see that you are visiting the Colts forum every now and then.    All the best in your new job. 
    • Thanks for the invite but I have a new job that is presently monopolising my time!  Not only would I struggle for time in making selections but would want to be able to do a bit of research as well.   Good luck to the rest of you though!
    • The thing is, at what point are you just churning draft capital for the future and passing on genuinely needed talent? Ballard made the big trade down into the middle of the 2nd round last year in order to get a high pick in this year's 2nd round. Then he  turns around and trades that high 2nd rounder for what.....a low first rounder next year? You begin to chase your tail after a while. Grab the talent now. You can't build through the draft if you refuse to use your picks on the talent that is only going to be  available on Day 1 and early Day 2. At some point, a bunch of low 2nd rounders and 3rd rounders gets you some nice depth, but not the game changers you need. Time to go for it!
    • For the trade chart future trades are usually the equivalent of one round lower of the current draft position.  So, let's say the Colts are looking to trade back to #20, the 2021 1st round pick will have a value of the 2020 2nd round, #20 pick.  
    • If Brown and/or Kinlaw and are still on the board at #13.... I would sprint, pole vault, long jump, shot put and javelin our pick to the podium for either of them.    If they're both gone.... then if I'm Ballard.... we're open for business for a trade down.
