Colts @ Bills Preseason Game Night Thread

Recommended Posts

Collins is injured. I think that is the only injury so far tonight. He walked off the field ok.

Interesting that they played Collins ALL game.  Strictly evaluation purposes or could he be trade bait?

I find it interesting that Brissett job was to target DF. Walkers job was to get it to Cain. Kelly’s job was to get it Fountain. That is why these games are meaningless. They don’t even go to their second read.

Pre-season is fun because football is back but it is meaningless. We lost 24-16, no biggy. I want to keep an eye on Luck's health more than anything as the month plays out. Also hope nobody else gets injured.

Trade bait or on the bubble. Everytime colts media posts a receiver having a good play Collins is always the one getting beat.

Yeah. Because Rock is looking like another Ballard gem that’s gonna give immediate impact.  Did Hairston play tonight?

He had himself quite the game though!

Yes I think so. Interesting that it seems to be Collins they are taking a good look at.

 

That Taylor kid is really good in the slot also.

Evaluation purposes. He hasn't played for an entire year so they want to get him out there and see what he has.

Yes I would just like to see him up against the first team offense to see if he is for real.

We’ve seen some preseason Hall of Famers before.  Lol. Remember Rayford?  And I really loved TY McGgill.

I thought this last year with Badgley, and now I feel like it's gonna happen with Hedlund...but it's gonna suck if/when Vinny retires and we have trouble finding an efficient kicker.

Hmmm.  I really don’t remember seeing him.  Don’t know if that’s good or bad.

He was out there early in the 1st quarter. I noticed because I didn't expect to see him that early. He played pretty well honestly.

AV is injured again. It would not be a shocked if he decides to retire and we keep this kid.

Such an unpopular opinion here...but if AV is truly hurt (especially the groin that bothered him last year) and Hedlund further proves to be a good kicker, then I wouldn't be too upset.

I'd be surprised though.

Kelly moved the chains, better QBR, and should get a promotion to 3rd QB over Walker. 

 

Speed looks like a keeper! Fountain really took advantage of the targets/snaps. Phillips needs to get some snaps upstream.

 

Overall, disappointed with the O in the first half. The D was a mixed bag. 

 

My vid stream sucked, so looking forward to watching it on the DVR/replay on the NFL Network. Thank goodness for the radio stream.

Good to hear.  Him and Collins could be battling for those last couple CB spots.

He isn’t playing.

To be fair he had no TY or Ebron. DF was the only guy he had.

The one thing I seen was pressure pressure pressure and no run game. That’s not helpful to any QB but the question here is would Luck have seen anything differently under the same circumstances? The little we seen JB wasn’t stellar either way imho. Like to be able to evaluate him with full #1s

No weapons and a makeshift OL

Oline looked pretty bad. I didn’t notice but did AC play any snaps?

Brissett IS an NFL QB. That’s why they haven’t traded him way. We’ve seen him play, and while not great, I never want to see PW take a meaningful snap. :) 

 

As for the former statement, JB isn’t going to net us anything based on what we’ve seen in last season and so far from this game. The silver lining here is we don’t matter and aren’t privy to everything he has done in practices. As for the latter, I’m not sure what affection the team has for PW but he doesn’t appear to meet the minimum criteria for being an average QB whatsoever.

I thought Turay looked good in a couple of run plays that surprised me.

AC did not play.

If he's truly hurt, I agree. If not, try and hide Hedlund on the PS.

Honestly, I don’t think we should have kept Walker over the kid we had from Miami a couple years ago.  At least he would take some shots when he had 1 on 1 on the outside.

Yup. Unfortunately, the Bears will probably be watching Hedlund very closely from here on out.

Overall, it's just preseason.

 

But we were a great punching bag for the Bills. Their offense got a great workout.

It will be interesting to see if the colts keep six Wr If fountain or Johnson can beat out Pascal.

 

I hope we get to see Campbell against the browns.

I'm sure every team is digging stats and film on every other team lol. Might be harder to hide Fountain on the PS another year too :-)

Totally agreed on Fountain. Each catch he made I thought, okay, maybe he should make the roster over Pascal. Especially if he keeps performing.

I think it will depend mostly on injuries at other positions, especially to starters. The healthy we are at 1st and 2nd team depth (other positions), the more likely we can "indulge" with WR.

Ideally it would be great to carry 6 for at least the first 3-4 games until things settle in both at WR and in returns.

I liked what I saw from Grover Stewart at times. I know there have been some social media talk highly of him, cutting down and what not.

 

I just really like the young defensive line Ballard is putting together. Muhammad (24), Turay (24) Lewis (24) Ward (25) Stewart (25).. Phillips is 26 and looked good tonight. Interested to see if leads to anything for him. Ballard has added these solid understudies that bring competition to help elevate that unit and the depth, and i think we'll start seeing the dividends very soon... especially with how the back end of the defense is coming along. This scheme is built for a strong defensive line. We need it if we are going to take another step towards a championship. Put everything else aside. We need this defensive line to penetrate and put pressure/make plays. That's the money maker that makes everything else just fall into place.

I think Fountain is ahead of Pascal as of now.  I think it’ll be easier to find another Pascal.  No way Fountain makes it to a practice squad.  Dude looks like a physical freak and starting to make plays.

Thanks for bringing that to my attention.  Is this what you're referring to?

Surprised none of the other beat writers have investigated this further.

 Next game hopefully we get to see TY, DF, Cain and Fountain together with an oline and a QB that’s accurate, whether it be JB or CK.

Is this something that was said in a press conference? That is interesting if so.

NH did play and the little I seen of him, it wasn’t very good at all.

We see his play differently. I was thinking after seeing the little of him I did that it wouldn’t be tough on cuts if he continued that sort of play. I only got to see first half and not every play either.

    • Had Funchess been practing? I thought he had to practice for two weeks before being able to come back?
    • Oh you were right on that one.  I still won, but I missed out on having highest score of the week by .32 points.  Our league pays out for highest weekly scores. 
    • I think there's a danger with any position of getting enamoured with the 40 time, I'd put 3 cone over it certainly. However, as always never go by just one metric, and never put metrics over film.    For all that was written about him being a below average athlete, if you compare  him to some of the 'good' SS's in the league he matches up pretty well:   Willis 4.55s (40)/7.15s (3 Cone) Collins 4.53s (40)/7.53s (3 Cone) Chancellor 4.69s (40)/7.36s (3 Cone) Jones  4.51s (40)/7.43s (3 Cone)  Adams  4.56s (40)/6.96s (3 Cone)    etc etc... 
    • CeeDee Lamb would be the dream pick imo. Reminds me a lot of Hopkins/Thomas, good size, great route runner and hands. Means he could take on a high volume of targets in the short/intermediate range, something I think Frank Reich badly needs (that's why he was high on signing Funchess). Put him on the boundary opposite Hilton and Campbell in the slot and we have serious options. Not as high on Ruggs when we already have Hilton.   I like Mack as a lead back, but not 25 carries a game. I would prefer a legit RB2 to take some of that load off him, preferably a RB to compliments his game, so a heavier, more physical, north/south RB. This draft has options in the mid round.
    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
