Colts / Browns joint practice 8/14

Recommended Posts

First fight of the day. Didn’t last long and it was on the other end of the field so I couldn’t see who it was.

Our offense their defense was where it occurred. Both teams players helped break it up.

I remember Pipkins with us briefly last year. Played versus NE and was constantly chriping with the NE players all game. 

 

Ballard cut him straight away the following week.

 

Seems nothing has changed.

This is interesting.

 

 

 

Not good for Zach after seeing Hines and Dulin get KR reps.

 

Crazy flux in the WR space in general.

I have to say Brissett playing against the colts defense is only going to make him better..

Doesn’t sound like Ebron or Leonard played much.

They were both out there a good amount. Neither of them look like anything is hindering them. Probably for their safety if they missed plays.

Honestly  with all the reps he has been getting  he should  be better

Hopefully he shows us something on Saturday. If our defense is legit as it seems, then we have a shot week 1 as long as JB doesn't mess up entirely.

So it looks like the front seven and d-line are good but the secondary may need some time adjusting. I'm glad to hear offense is still good. I can't wait until Campbell is back.

I hope we see Campbell in the bears game.

It’s all going to depend on what kind of plays Reich calls and if any starters sit out. I think the bears game will be when the starters get more time.

It’s Brissett time lol. No way they will be able to make a decision on Luck after next week.

Generally, the third game is when starters play the most.

I think Jacoby could beat the Chargers.  I'm hoping Andrew is full go though.

Yeah, that last point is something to keep in mind. Neither OBJ or Landry was out there (think they also missed the 1st PS game too). Probably would've looked a little different otherwise.

Still, sounded like a very good day.

I have to a a young though a healthy JB might be better if luck is still having any issues. We have a great defense and hopefully the oline can do well against the chargers dline. Brissett can not get injured.

It seems we were kind of already penciled in for a loss in LA. Maybe we just take a chance on JB and luck have a extra week.

Never saw this tweet posted, I don't think.  All in all sounds like we kept them out of the end zone pretty well but other than that let the opposing O march down the field. Again, that's just how our defense seemingly operates. Hoping to create turnovers and if not, tighten up in the red zone.

Keep in mind the colts torched the Browns also. He was just on the other field. We did keep them them from a TD On at least one play.

Sure, which was pleasantly surprising to me, in regards to the offense.

I'm just not in full agreement with the "monster top 5 defense" takes quite yet. I think our pass rush when healthy will be a big improvement but I'm really curious to see how our secondary outside of the proven guys like Hooker/Moore/Desir will hold up.

    • I wouldn't say I'm particularly good with evaluating players coming out of college. And especially with projecting them forward(I have some hits, but I also have some huge misses). I'm doing this for fun and for engagement with other Colts fans(I just like talking about football and the team and the future of the team, etc.), I don't have any illusions about my abilities as an evaluator - think of it like this - even the best FOs in the league miss on about half their picks... and most people here(me included) don't have anywhere close to their knowledge, their time to watch players, their resources - financial or scouting resources, their intel on players(this is the biggest difference IMO between amateurs like us that watch on the internet and what the teams can do - they have soooooo much more information about those players and what makes them tick).    Yeah, a lot of it is luck. This is why I love that Ballard realizes that and has said that this is the reason he prefers to accumulate picks, which he has done. This is one of the biggest paradoxes in the league. Imagine you are prospective GM for a team and you go to an interview with the owner  but instead of telling him "I'm the best man for the job, because I can evaluate better than everyone else", the real answer is more along the lines of "look, most teams/GMs in the league have about the same success with drafts over the long haul, so hire me to turn the wheel of fortune for the team". In essence, the answer is - you have to be humble about just how not good the success rate of draft picks is(even for the best GMs) and you have to devise a strategy in another way - namely - instead of just trying to have high success rate per pick... just get more picks and try to hold the success rate similar. This is how you shift the odds in your favor. You are more likely to get 5 starters out of 10 picks than out of 7 picks.    The reality is - even if we draft a QB in round 1, chances are about 50-50 that he's going to bust... but then again... those are roughly the chances for every other position too. Maybe just a little bit more or less of some other positions, but QB is so important that it doesn't matter. The reward of getting a great QB is way too big. You just have to keep trying until you get the guy.       Manning and Luck are kind of exceptions though. I haven't really seen people talk about many other QBs in that way. For example, Trevor Lawrence is probably the one I've heard people talk in most similar terms as a can't miss QB, but even he had his questionable play to begin this season. We will see what happens with him next year and if he will enter the draft in a similar standing as Luck. Luck is the most can't miss QB I've seen and I haven't seen anyone close since.(this is as a prospect coming out of college) Even the Mariotas or Winstons or Mayfields and Darnolds of the world had a lot of more doubt.    BTW, there is something that IMO gets underrated a bit - the environment those QBs enter into. Very few are can't miss that can transcend a chaotic team atmosphere, bad coaching or OLine, lack of weapons, etc. This is why what Luck did was so amazing and why he was a can't miss prospect - just look back at what he had to deal with... horrible coaching, horrible OLines, horrible defenses... we take 100 yard rushers for granted... Luck didn't have a 100 yard rusher to help him for what was it? 5 years straight or something?    So yeah, I think whoever we draft will have much better situation to succeed than a lot of other young QBs enter. We have good coaching staff, we have good OLine... we need better weapons, but that can be fixed through allocating resources there. 
    • Nelson and Leonard can’t be extended until after their third year. They need one one season to be elgible. Our oline is going to have some major dollars wrapped up in it one Nelson signs after next year.
    • Ebron as i recall, was top 5 all-time in receptions for his first 4 years.  There was a certain amount of disfunction with Detroit. I think Ebrons drops got him extra attention.
    • He almost beat Michigan State last year. To me he looks like he is in a NFL offense. Looks like a NFL QB to me. Much more then what I saw from Herbert last night.    
    • This is a video of Utah state from last year when they played Michigan State. Love looks like he is in a NFL style offense and looks like a NFL player to me  BTW there is some footage of Khari Willis int in this video.  I guess I don’t see why a guy like Herbert would go before Love. It’s a pretty big difference to me in the style of offense they play.
