My Colts review after 3 weeks...and I don't think anyone cares, including my 6 sons, lol.
1. Reich play calling ..a real plus. Much improved over Pagano era (I liked Chuck as a person). Remember when there were Sean Payton to the Colts rumors? It was his gusty, creative play calling that appealed to me. Well, I think Reich, in terms of play calling and guts will be mentioned in the same breadth if he gets his Super Bowl win.
2. Offensive line - as good as advertised.
3. Brissett - his grabbing the reins and performing under pressure is a pleasant surprise. You have to be all in on him. Missing Luck is like missing an ex-girlfriend....wasting that emotion will only hurt you.
4. Mack - solid. Totally solid.
5. Rookies playing. The fact that they are playing and the Colts could have been 3-0 speaks well of the draft. Willis shows promise, particularly in run support.
6. Jack Doyle's contributions.
1. Leonard...I guess I was hoping for more. I know he's hurt but I thought something was amiss the first two games.
2. Ebron - maybe spreading the ball around has lessened his opportunities.
3. Return game. Not much happening there.
4. 2nd receiver. With Funchess and Fountain out, not much happening there....we seem to be "F'ed". Has there been a Rogers citing?
1. The pass rush. Just not what I thought would be a strength this year. Next years draft should be pass rushers, pass rushers, and all the free agent pass rushers you can find. Stick a fork in Houston (you know the rest).
2. The 2 games of kicking woes.
3. Playing loose zones. Geesh...Ryan was making it look like a backyard football game where he hit every pass.
1. Ebron's first touchdown (the flip pass at the goal line)
2. The Pascal td call today
3. Geathers interception (not a typo, he really did it).
4. The 3rd Colts cheerleader from the left....just kidding.
I’ll take today’s Jacoby over Andrew (ducks and hides)
what I mean by that is that Jacoby was getting the ball out fast, taking what the defense gives him rather than forcing things, and was pinpoint on his throws (loften did a great job highlighting that and why it matters on the broadcast). Those weren’t always Andrew’s strong suits.
