Colts Browns joint practice 8/15

Recommended Posts

Lol the overreactions here are something. It's possible the O-Line takes a step back, but I have no issue with firing Degugliemo. Also, it's TC. Like preseason, there's not much to be gleamed from it. Last year Colts were pretty bad and look how that turned out.

It also might not be as bad as it sounds. I doubt Big Q practiced much today with that taped ankle. Plus we might of had some others not taking many snaps.

its always possible for every body.  this could be the best colts team since 2009 though, hopefully Luck doesnt miss time.  


Oh, definitely, I agree on both parts. I more just was alluding to the fact that even the mere mention of regression seems to barely be tolerated here, usually just labeled as overreaction (which in some cases they are).

That said, I think our OL will look better once the regular season starts, at least compared to how they've fared so far in TC.

I know that cause the colts players were the ones repeatedly getting thrown to the ground after plays

You mean when fights break out in real games and it's the 2nd guy who always gets kicked out or penalized because he is reacting to the other guy's first contact?

Very true....but you can also look at it another way.

 

They started out 1-5 I believe and everyone here was saying just suck for another high pick. I don't think anyone predicted the run out end of year.

 

But they got hot (mainly because of the OL and the cupcake schedule) and ran into a team in Houston in the first round that they always beat.  But once they met reality in the Chiefs?  It was game over.

 

So.....lets just 'assume' the Colts take a step back in the OL this year with Mudd.  And the Luck situation.  And the much tougher schedule.

 

It is really that much of a stretch to go back to the 1-5 start team?  With all of those preconditions in place?

 

IMO no.  TBH I would have rather the Colts finish 5-11 and be a little more realistic about things so they could improve more than how they finished.  I think it gave them a false sense of accomplishment. 

 

I do think their D will be better this year, but I was not at all impressed with the Colts O the last few games of last year, really not impressed against the Chiefs, and I have seen nothing this year in TC that changes that opinion.

From what I have seen....I would take Hogan.

Peyton being there today really seemed to lift the team and spirits of Andrew Luck from what I am reading here. I think Peyton would make a great GM or Coach somewhere, it's his presence alone and knowledge of the game that is unmatched.

Man this stinks. Feel for the guy. Was really pushing and earning himself a spot on the roster. Id say next man up but the wr room taking a hit. Campbell out still, Ishmael, now Fountain.

From what I read after that KC loss the team took a long hard look at why they got beat and vowed to fix it. We will see.

If Luck plays week one we better hope the oline hasn’t got worse.  A injured Luck and that Chargers pass rush could be disaster.

If Luck does play which I think he will, we may still lose. They are favored and as good as we are. I wish the game was here, they even have HFA.

IMO with Luck or without Luck against SD?

 

Total blowout. 

 

Either Luck is rusty and injured.

 

Or It is Jacoby.

 

IMO bet the Chargers minus anything under -9.  Last I saw was Chargers -4.

 

Total gimmee.

Apparently Nelson didn't actually practice today, or at least wasn't there for 11 on 11's. So that should be taken into account for how our OL fared today.

Oh that’s good news. I bet AC and Kelly didn’t get many snaps either.

Our defense is to good for it to be a blow out. Unless the offense can’t do anything and the D is on the field the entire tine.

You go from one of the worst OLs to one of the best....and you fire the guy?  Over a disagreement with a backup?

 

I don't get it.


I love Mudd, but he is way past his prime.  IMO, and I said this back when it happened, this could be a giant mistake.

 

You seem a fun dude...

 

Can it possibly be that you don't have near the info you think you do on why they fired the o'line coach?

Frank said Peyton got in at 9:30 last night and talked with the offensive staff until midnight. Talked with the defensive staff and the team this morning. Would've been fun to be a fly on the wall when he, Frank, and Sirianni were talking.

Hope Ballard can find some oline help on the waiver wire.  It appears we cannot compete with decent dL.  So do we write off the first quarter of the season.

Yeah, I remember Reich saying how important it was for the QB and center to make the right pre-snap reads recently. Said part of the reason their offense works so well was because of how great Luck/Kelly were in reading the defense.

This makes me feel better about the oline. Nelson didn’t do team drills and Kelly didn’t take many snaps.

I would love to see him mic’d up talking to Andrew one on one. Like, I would just lose my mind seeing that.

Kinda sucks that all those fights/scuffles happened with Peyton, Dungy, and the rest of the alumni there in attendance. Of course, the sense I get is that they seemed to mostly be started by Browns players (not totally sure on that though), but still.

    • 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?
