Colts / Browns joint practice 8/14

Recommended Posts

thread for updates and talk about the colts / browns joint practice.

 

ill be interested to see how they compete.  this camp has been a night and day difference between hue jacksons "camp cupcake" and this year's TC.

 

for reference the browns have been in full pads with hitting all but 1 day so far in camp.  one would think that would be bad with injuries but last year had many more injured players. this year they have been relatively healthy so far.

Welcome to the board!  Looking forward to the practices to see how our Colts measure up!   Specifically, our CBs and WRs have been tearing up camp (not easy to do, given that they play against each other).  But hey, if they can look good against OBJ, Landry, Ward, etc., then they’re pretty good...

Welcome. It’s going to be fun. Can’t wait until 4 o’clock. Hopefully everyone is a pro and handles themselves well.

TY is a tough cover for anyone. Ward is really the only CB the browns have that can cover him. i seen he is like 29 catches so far on 30 targets ?  is that right ? 

 

the top 3 browns receivers are locked in obj, landry, higgins. an old AFC south face Jaelen strong is having a great camp and the #4 as of now .

I think that was TYH himself who quoted that 29 of 30 targets, lol!  Yeah, TY has been a beast, but other WRs are really tearing it up at camp.  Principally, Dion Cain, Reese Fountain, and Krishawn Hogan.  Depending on who you talk to, Funchess, Zach Pascal, and others have also done great.  Looking forward to see them against CLE CBs, especially Ward (what a brilliant draft you had last year - kudos).

I can’t wait to see Rock Ya Sin against your wide receivers. He has been a beast in camp. I will also be watching to see if the colts defense is as good as it as looked in camp. Also seeing Brissett up against another defense besides the colts will be something to watch. I think we will get more out of these joint practices then we will the game Saturday.

This will be a nice test for the defense which according to multiple reports has had its way with our own offense so far in camp. Lets see if they can be this disruptive against some high caliber offensive talent on the Browns.

from the browns side all the pub the offense gets the defense has gotten the better of them most of camp.  the D line when the 4 starters have been out there has been pretty much un-blockable.  that with 4 CB's that can play its tough sledding.

Yeah, they have a filthy defensive line too... and some talent at CB too... This is a very good Browns team and those joint practices IMO will be a good litmus test about where we are in our roster development at some key spots.

Do you guys want tweets in this thread when practices start or a different thread?

I'd keep it here since it's kinda designated for it.

PS--when does practice start?

Quarterbacks, Rigo, the long snapper, and various receivers are out here including Fountain and Funchess. Campbell is catching some passes but is out for today, just in his jersey.

I know! Grand park has a ton of fields. They have BBQ today, but it’s not as good as last year :(   They will be practicing on two fields today. I’ll let you know of any Browns plays as well! More and more colts players are filing out, don’t see any browns players yet

I know if anybody can get veteran days it's Vinny, but consider me curious about what's going on with him.

If our camp kicker continue to ball out in PS and Vinny struggles to get healthy...although I seriously doubt Ballard would ever cut Vinny. Could be the smart move for the future though, again, if the camp kicker proves his worth.

I won’t be surprised if he retires before the season starts. He says it’s a minor knee but he has been our to long.

    • One note here. Camp rosters aren't entirely about "the best X number of players". As one example, all teams keep a minimum of 4 quarterbacks in camp, because they all follow a similar regimen of keeping track of the number of throws per quarterback, so as not to overwork their arms. Much like with pitchers in baseball. So even if there were 100% agreement that a quarterback is in the "bottom 10", if there are only 4 on the camp roster, they're keeping him.
    • This thread is interesting to me, because I've thought a lot about Philip signing here after what happened to Luck, with Philip being given so much better a situation than what he "escaped", only at the expense of the same good situation having been taken away from Luck.   It reminds me of what Wind In His Hair said to Dunbar about his best friend's death in Dances With Wolves. He told him that he believed that his best friend "went away" (died) because Dunbar was coming, and that that was how he saw it. He was just then coming to terms with the loss of his friend, and the "replacement" in Dunbar. Someone he didn't like at first, probably resented based on that admission, but by the end of their time together had come to love as a brother and friend.   And this situation is very much like that one. The hope, of course, is that it ends (whenever that ends up being) with similar good feelings and memories for all involved here, as well.
    • Half the people on Mt Rushmore were slave owners... Schools named after Washington and Jefferson have already had pressure to rename. 
    • was going to say the same thing but you beat me to it.  pff does tend to over hype their own grading system sometimes. fantastic player but he doesnt impact the game as much as a top qb 
    • I'm ready for a season at home where I can: 1. Turn the game on after the anthem or whatever they are playing in the stadium 2. Turn the game on after the kneeling or whatever statement the players and/or league are making 3. Sit and relax virus free, with nobody around me coughing or sneezing.  4. Have beer that is cold and cheap 5. Have food that is hot and cheap 6. Encounter no line at the bathroom (BONUS - it's not disgusting 5 minutes into the game)   What I'll miss: 1. Saturday night at Loughmiller's 2. The energy and excitement of game day 3. Post game dinner in the city
