Odum was fine.  Would rather have Geathers obviously, but not sure why he stunk?

Odum and Adams stink!!! Big time

both are rookie players correct? seems like everyone is a week to week executioner around here. I think Adams has played well...not all of the penalties he's gotten is on him.

I really want to draft Juan Thornhill, Virginia to replace odum/mitchell/etc. I'd keep Farley, but Geathers is injured too often.

I think Farley is the missing link for this defense. He's not a world beater, but he's a solid and reliable Safety. I really hope we bring him back.

If we draft Thornhill he will be the starter by mid-season. I like Farley. He should be retained. Let Geathers walk. I'd look for other Safeties to replace odum/mitchell/martin

Adams is constantly taking poor angles and biting hard on fakes. On Henry’s long run to the right he lost contain. Then the following play his man is the TE who scored. Also last week against NYG he wasn’t good. I get He’s a rookie. I didnt say cut him but right now he’s not very good. Odum either

Who's not missing and over pursuing Henry? It happens but I think he's been more than solid for his role thus far and has made his share of contributions. Will he be the long-term SAM option I dunno but you don't see RB's in the NFL like Henry too often. Also, I'm not sure if anyone noticed or not but the rain came at the right time. I saw a few slips and stumbles on some good pursuit angles out there as well. I saw some floodgates get opened by more than just Adams.

So many young players have improved this year right before our eyes, on both offense and defense.

 

This coaching staff has proven to me that they know what they are doing.: Who has potential, and who to be patient with.

 

A year ago, did anyone think that Kenny Moore would actually become a good CB?

 

With my limited ability to judge, I personally see potential in both Adams and Odum. But we'll see........

Well you should have watched him.

He was lost out there most of the time. You know, bad reads, reaction, just not filling his gaps. Think Antonio Morrison. The opposition was keeping him confused and abusing him. It would have been more obvious for you I hope, if Gabbert hadn't looked like Curtis Painter. The same went on with out 3rd LB'ers. Bad stuff.

Congrats on thumping my Gamecocks. I know we are talking about safeties  but the CB #34 Hall would be a nice addition also. He played very well.

Thanks...I certainly wasn't expecting that result. I was hoping for a win obviously but SC is a better team than they showed. Yea, Hall is a good player also. I would be happy if the Colts got either of those two.

I doubt Geathers is back.  Injured far  to much; team can't rely on him week to week.

Agree.  We need to draft another starter or find one in FA.  Maybe Collins.

Adams is fine. Everybody played poorly on that TD drive. He's a young guy who has been getting sporadic playing time all year, mostly a special teamer at this point.

Personally I don't think Odum is all that bad.  He just gets a little wild at times which needs to be cleaned up.

He missed an oppertunity for a pick. 

 

I think Geathers, Mitchell and Odum wont be retained next year. Odum might be practise squad. I think we will keep Fairley as he is the best playmaker we have at SS and is a good locker room presence. Then maybe draft another safety in the mid rounds.

I really don't consider guys that have been through 17 weeks of practice and games rookies anymore.

 

Not trying to sound like a jerk, but that's kind of a weak excuse at this point.

He only played defensive snaps in 10 games. In five of those ten, he played 9 or fewer snaps.

 

But even a rookie should know not to hit a guy late out of bounds. He basically gave the Titans three points.

Not only late, but went low to boot.

Yeah, most of the mistakes I saw from Adams and Odum yesterday were the result of poor fundamentals and lack of discipline (including lack of eye discipline).

 

Adams just gets eaten up by any sort of misdirection.  Then again, so does our entire LB corps.  That's the one thing the Giants, and to an extent, the Ttitans, have done recently to try to take advantage of the defense's speed and aggressiveness.

 

Use that speed and aggressiveness to get guys out of position in a hurry.  Create cutback lanes and awkward tackling angles.  Speaking of angles, Odum takes some "Ole!" angles.

 

I'm just extremely happy that these minor issues are what I'm whining about this time of year, relative to the Colts.  #Blessed

I love Geathers against the run but man this guy can't stay healthy. I'm praying Ballard signs or drafts a safety!

Exactly. Gotta bring in a guy or two and at least another CB.

Not only late and low but almost took out Leonard’s knee...  My heart nearly stopped.  I was so happy to see Leonard still on the field the next play.  Then a play or 2 later Odum took Desir’s interception away.  He was terrible on that drive.  And Adams gets eaten alive on misdirection. Looking like another Morrison out there.  Maybe it’s something with those linebackers with numbers in the 40’s...?

If we are thinking of the same play, Adams did not lose contain.  he followed BG expecting a bootleg, Henry ran behind him,  With the alignment and the way the titans blocked it, Adams followed his reads.  Odum was the one that needed to come up and fill but he was slowing coming down hill and then missed the tackle.

 

Adams has worked his way onto the field and increased playing time because he's been playing well.

    • It sounds like Collins was trying to surround himself with better support prior to joining Indy, but yes, it's great that we've got enough high-character guys on this team who can help keep him clean.  https://www.colts.com/news/jalen-collins-grateful-for-the-opportunity-with-colts   I tend to agree with you regarding who Ballard considers 'bad apples.'  Kelly was dismissed from Clemson because he snapped at coaches after being benched as a sophomore in a Spring Game (and then got in a 'minor fender-bender' in the team's parking lot, which did not lead to any police report -- sounds like he was heated when he left and probably drove a little recklessly).  Prior to joining Clemson, Kelly did send a few tweets or social media messages suggesting he was going to come in and win the starting position right away.  He was ~17-19 years old when these incidents occurred.  Sure, they're not great, but I imagine being a very highly-touted prospect and the nephew of a HOF QB comes with quite a bit of stress, especially at that age.  Not that those were great incidents, but it doesn't necessarily make him a bad person (kind of like you eluded to, these incidents are nowhere near as serious as domestic violence or endangering a child, etc.).    When he was 21, Kelly got in a scuffle with some bouncers at a nightclub in his home town.  Again, not a great incident, but keep in mind he was 21 and was probably going through some hard times as he was being scrutinized nationally for recently being kicked off Clemson and probably had a bit too much to drink with some of his hometown friends.  Not that getting in a scuffle in a nightclub is a good thing, but there are a LOT of 21 year olds who get in scuffles when they've had too much to drink and no big deal is made of it because they're 'normal' kids, not highly touted football players with a celebrity uncle.  Of course,  being a 'star' comes with responsibility and you'd like to think kids know enough to keep themselves under the radar, but I don't think it's an incident which makes him an evil person.   Then, when he was 23-24 he left a Halloween party at Von Miller's house and stumbled into the wrong house.  He didn't steal anything from the house or attempt to injure anyone in the house, from all accounts I've read... he simply had too much to drink and went in and sat on a couch, got chased out by the husband in the house and then went and slept in his SUV.  Again, not a great incident, but I don't think it's something which makes him a terrible person.  Sounds like the kid needs to understand his limits in terms of partying a bit better, but if he wasn't an NFL football player, that charge would be a pretty common thing to read in a police blotter in a large city like that.  He needs to understand, he's going to get more scrutiny as an NFL athlete and due to his past and his ties to Jim Kelly... and it sounds as though he's gotten some counseling and is doing his best to stay away from situations like that in the future.     Ballard and his staff always seem to do their due diligence before bringing players into this team.  The fact that Reich and J. Kelly were teammates for just under a decade probably also helped Chad Kelly in this situation.  I imagine Reich has known Chad for a long time (probably since he was a toddler) and had some conversations with Jim to get assurance that Chad is trying to clean up his act.  While not all of his actions were the greatest, he doesn't seem to have done anything that would be a huge deal and make him a terrible human being if he was just an average Joe.   Jalen Collins' suspensions it sounds like were 2x for smoking weed and 2x for PEDs.  Not great decisions, but again, those aren't things that make him a terrible person.  And as @Scott Pennock said, it's easy, if he slips up again, we release him and move on (well, if he slips up for PEDs again, we won't have to deal with him, the NFL will suspend him for 2 years and by that time, he'll probably be too old to come back and compete for an NFL roster spot).  To be honest, I am more concerned with the PED use than the weed from a young man in the NFL... but I don't know all the circumstances (e.g., did he just not do his research and took a supplement on the banned list by accident (this seems to happen a lot, and in other sports you are starting to see guys winning cases by proving they accidentally took a tainted substance)? was he battling a nagging injury and took something to try to help recover faster (this also happens, e.g., Andy Pettite admitted he took PEDs several times in his career, but moreso for recovery than to enhance his performance, like being put on the 10 day -DL instead of the 60 day-DL)?  Or did he actually knowingly try to cheat by taking substances to give him a major advantage over other players (all these guys take supplements, but there are supplements which are more advantageous than others)?).  I would be more worried if this guy is actually a major cheater who felt he didn't have enough raw ability to play in this league to the point he had to take banned substances... but he already is well aware, if he screws up again, his NFL days are over.   In terms of Okerere, Ballard and others have already said numerous times that they did their due diligence about his alleged incident and talked to his coaches and others around him and found no reason not to bring the guy to Indy.     If allegations turn out to be true, I doubt Ballard would bring in a guy like Tyreek Hill.  Maybe it's just my opinion, but assaulting your spouse or your child are way more serious issues about someone's character than smoking weed, pulling a McAfee and falling into a canal, or having too much to drink and accidentally stumbling into the wrong place (especially without attacking anyone or vandalizing the place).  I, for one, am happy Ballard isn't against giving guys who have not done anything very seriously wrong another chance.  Like Ballard says "Kids make mistakes."      
    • Addai was great in pass pro, but as an overall RB give me MJD anyday.    Mack is a little low, but overall hes still in the 15-20 range IMO. If healthy he definitely moves up though. 
    • I loved the "with the next pick" series. Watched it multiple times. I'll look at the site again and see if it changes my opinion. Maybe the video series on Cain will spark my interest.
    • it was just an ugly ugly ugly game.   to me, our O was the issue. you can't punt your first four possessions and then miss a FG to end the half. then you punt your first two possessions of the 2nd, fumble on your 3rd, and punt again on your 4th. When special teams is your only score for 3Qs, it's your offense lol....   our D actually held them under their average so i can't blame them too much. we actually had more sacks and QB hits they them.   Biggest issues 1. they doubled a hobbled TY, and the rest of our WR group were mediocre to begin with 2. O play calling sucked. horrible game plan from Reich, and good one from Andy. 3. our LB's played bad...  4. we abandoned the run too early (only 14 rushes the entire game). Our YPC was pretty good. 5. weather/field
    • They had the better team and were at home. KC winning doesn't surprise me at all. This upcoming season is a different story. If you ask 99% of Houston fans were they surprised we beat them in the playoffs, they would probably say yes. I wasn't, because we had the better QB. Mahomes and Luck are pretty even regarding KC and they were at home.
