Training Camp Day 14

Recommended Posts

We will know more WED if this offense is this bad or it’s our defense. The QB did have a good day yesterday.

you know, i have to ask, are the refs at these practices local crews or are they the same ones used during games?

I assume they are not ones used in games.

One thing seems to be noticeable is Ballard's draft has really bolstered our LB, CB and S group. Loads of competition in those 3 groups and it's really showing on the practice field.

I'd throw WR in that too. Gonna be some hard cuts

Campbell is missing valuable time. I was hoping to see him against the browns but We might not. He won’t get as much action to start the season with the missed playing time.

I am really nervous how bad this offense is going to look the first game. Luck needs to get back to practice soon. Maybe Kelly needs to start Sat.

Pascal getting cut, I see it already

One of the tweets said the reason it will be hard to cut him is he is such a great blocker, It’s going to be herd to keep him.

So Rock’s new name is Lock Ya Sin.

 

 

Ebron looks like a beast without the sleeves on.

I'm expecting our offense to struggle against the Browns defense in practice, especially the passing game.

The true test will be for our defense, mainly our DB's. Baker's no joke.

Honestly, I agree with him. 

Always seems like an injury occurs during joint practices too. Cheap shots, etc.

So Reich said him and Kitchens have talked to their teams about keeping it professional and no fighting.

Good luck with that. There will be plenty of bickering and beyond that, all it'll take is one big hit.

Like McClellan last year (guy on the Ravens who leveled Morrison and started brawl in our joint practice) there always seems to be some end of the roster guy who just doesn't care because they know they're not making the team anyways.

Sad we probably won’t see Campbell against the Browns. With missing practices  he most likely won’t get as many reps to start the season.

This is why I love Pascal.  Might not be flashy, but does the extra stuff!

 His blocking is what got him most of his snaps last season. He was the best we had.

I hope Hines kills it on returns because I'm just not seeing it with Pascal. 

 

 

Pascal can be replaced on KR. I think it is PR where it will be harder to cut Rogers. 

Hines got more reps today either the first unit on PR.

Honestly, I'm not too worried about the offense. They were fine last year with Luck not practicing and rusty. I'm more concerned about the defense, especially with all the good QBs they face.

Here is the INT By Rock. To be honest that is a bad throw by Brissett more than a great post by rock.

Luck practiced all TC. Luck hasn’t done anything team wise since the KC game.

It's why I don't get super hyped up by tweets about INT's until I see a video.

Don't get me wrong, Rock's proven to be a pretty good ball hawk, but after the tweets about this INT/the reactions to it you'd think we drafted the second coming of Deion Sanders.

You can see it landed right in Rocks hands. DF never had it.

actually, you are wrong. he's not been in live drills, but he has been throwing to WRs and TEs and doing handoffs for the walk thru's with the 1s, that is per Frank Reich.

 It looked like a near perfect throw by Brissett and great coverage and hands by Lock.

Yes but it still isn’t actually game speed.  He actually did warmups with the team yesterday.

Reich even said in his press conference that it was under thrown. I do think DF looked like he tried to take off before he had the ball though. A little concentration lapse.

The battles rock and DF have had in camp are going to make both of them better.

I hate doing this but the Colts need to take a serious look into those soft tissue injuries and the recovery from them. Luck, Campbell, AC last year(I would bet there are a lot more that I just cannot remember right now). This continues happening. Players try to return after injury only to suffer setbacks and make things worse.

 

I heard some injury expert say we are bottom third in the league in injuries 10 years running. Every single year! This is coming to the point where it cannot be just dumb luck. Is it trainers/medical staff... is it the artificial turf at Lucas Oil Stadium? Is it the coaching? Is is the nutrition/food? Whatever it is, they need to figure it out. This can't keep happening again and again and again and again... I realize that this is contact sport and physical sport and some injuries are expected but the level and consistency of it happening to Colts players is very much out of the ordinary.

a couple match ups i am excited about in the upcoming practices .

 

1. browns O line against Indy d line. How has your pass rush been so far in camp?   it has been a struggle so far in camp with the browns D line causing lots of pressure. interested to see if its just the browns D line or if its going to be a cause for concern.

 

2. Njoku against leonard especially in the redzone. Njoku has been making multiple TD catches per practice. the browns dont have a LB that can matchup with his size and jumping ability. leonard is so long that i think it will be a good battle.

 

3. both teams WR vs CB battles. both teams have good CB's and WR's it should be fun to see how it goes.

agreed but they're not happening at LOS, they're happening on a variety of fields.

    • Nice thread...    There have been some arguments for a while now about the relative value of pass-coverage vs pass-rush. Teams offensively are turning to faster and faster game plans and this affects the pass-rush a ton. You can practically scheme the pass-rush away if you have good enough QB and receivers that get open quickly. The latest advanced analytics seem to favor positions like CB and WR value-wise over long-held champions like EDGE rushers or OTs. I will also take into account your characterization of the rest of the roster(average players as opposed to straight up trash). At some positions the improvement between pro-bowler and average/JAG is higher than at other positions. Those are just part of the considerations that will inform my choise here:   Offense:   1. QB: not controversial take here - most important position of all... he handles the ball and makes a decision that might affect the game pretty much 100% of the snaps. I want the best passer and decisionmaker to run my offense.    2. WR: yep, give me a beast of an X-receiver. Pass-catchers are incredibly important.   3. LT: Yeah, I know, this goes against some of the things I said above, but time and time again we see what a great LT does to an offensive line. Leremy Tunsil is not even that great and he almost single-handedly turned around the HOU OLine. Same with AC last year - we missed him mightily when he was injured to start the year and then turned the line into a great unit. And again - he's not even at the level we are talking here. He still has not had a pro-bowl or all-pro recognition(maybe he gets one this year, he deserves it). But yeah... give me Bakhtiari, give me Armstead, give me Tyron Smith level player... I think this raises the level of the whole O-Line, especially if it's filled with average players at the other positions(rather than horrible ones)   ------------------------------------ Those will be my selections offensively. I think a QB masks a lot of deficiencies and I think he elevates average players and squeezes everything out of most of them. Just look at what Luck used to do with players like Jack Doyle, Donte Moncrief, Eric Ebron, Inman, Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen...    Defense:   4. CB: yep, I want a shut down corner. Like I said earlier, newest research shows pass-coverage and especially on the boundary is paramount. and it affects pass-rush more than pass-rush affects CB play.    5. CB: yep, give me one more... I'm shutting down both sides of the field and hoping this gives additional time to my pass-rush to get there. They will play on island and I will scheme out everything else(i.e. slot receivers and TEs)... if I have to I will double away from them.    6. WILL: I want a sideline to sideline monster to clean up the run game and take on crossing routes in the short-intermediate middle in coverage.     7. EDGE: I still want a player capable of beating his man one-on-one on the line and creating pressure/affecting the pass when my pro-bowl CBs lock down their match ups.    So what do you think? Does it make sense?
