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.

Which only confirms my thoughts that he needs to be hired by the Colts NOW.

 

He is one in a million.  IF the Colts waste precious years without him?

 

Their loss.

My observations from today besides my previous posts:

 

1. Jacoby Brissett looked bad, off the mark for 11 v 11. A pick right out of the gate on a ball that was way over the receiver. Eek.

2. Mo is a beast.

3. Rogers had a catch that made me think “THAT was Chester Rogers??” Hopefully he shows it during  game time. He looked good.

4. Our O-line allowed way too much pressure, it didn’t matter if it was the starters or the 3rd stringers. Nelson was standing out there but I didn’t actually see him compete during team drills or 1 v 1s, whatever that’s worth

 

Wasn’t a good practice for our Colts, overall.

What makes you think the Colts (and others like the Broncos and the University of Tennessee) haven't already offered him a job, but he turned it down to enjoy his retirement?

 

Didn't he already turn down the Monday Night Football gig?

I think we are somewhere in between the 1-5 start and the great finish from last year.

 

Did not see a ton of improvement from a personal standpoint over the off season. 

 

Meanwhile the Browns, as much as I hate to admit this, have more talent and acquired more talent over the off season.

 

So this really doesn't surprise me.

 

IMO Browns go to the SB.  They are that good.

I totally get it.

 

That is why I think it may take an ownership proposal to make him come in.

You do realize you can have improvement by your young guys being a year older lol. We addressed both of our needs in the off season. DF and Houston have had great camps.

I serve french fries at my job...........

 

My paper hat is CLEANER than ANYONE else on my shift.........

 

:td:

 

 

We share a great passion..... cant we all just get along......???

 

Injuries are part of the game, I'm disappointed with Fountains injury... but my life doesnt end.....

 

However.......  If folks cant see the year to year in overall team strength..... they arent paying attention

 

I never thought that we would be a favorite for the SB this year,,,,,,.....

 

Better, within reach........ but we are STILL a few steps away

It is easy to acquire more talent when the team was void of talent.

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. 

We wanted to "keep" more than 5 or 6 WRs, but i doubt any of us  wanted it this way. 

With the Luck "issue", there was talk about only 5 WRs on the active.  However, with Cambell's hammy, that would only give us 4 on the roster who are game-ready.

  At this point, i think we have to assume (if cuts were today) its TY, Funchess, Rogers, Cain,  Campbell.  In that order (for the moment). Also, I also think, exacerbated by Campbell's hammy, we will keep either Pascal or Johnson.  Or perhaps a 4th TE "fills in".

  Those out there that better understand how thes receivers are used, might be able to explain the differences between Pascal, Johnson, etc, and the various skills they bring and how they may fit in the wr group.

I think Campbell will be fine. I bet he returns to practice next week and plays in the bears game.

This is awesome. It says in the article that there has been enough progress that has lead to the guarded optimism. I'll say this though, if he doesnt play week one it definetly sounds like week 2 should be a go if everything keeps progressing.

  1. strong has been good this camp.  how was he when playing against the colts with the texans?

 

 

I remember  one time when strong caught a hail Mary  at the end of the first half against  us that gave the texans a lead.

Yeah. The uncertainty about Andrew is probably affecting the players, too.

Brissett is not even close...he may not even be our 2nd best QB.

 

He is absolutley our second best qb.  gtho

There is so excuse for losing a scrimmage to a disgraceful franchise like Cleveland. I don't care about their talent. They are Cleveland, and they are the NFL'S laughing stock. Ballard needs to send a message, and fire somebody. 

You don’t lose scrimmages

     The Colts and Patriots were once laughingstocks

You are a fly drawn to crap! Once again can you post anything positive from your own opinion?

Yes.  Football players get hurt.  It's a pretty well known fact.   It sucks for the team and fan base.   Life isn't fair.  Things happen.  I guarantee you Andrew is more upset than any of us.   My life will go on.   If he can't play,   I will hope Jacoby plays well.   If he doesn't,   then I will be bummed.   However my life will go on.

Several reports that the OL looked bad. If there is even the slightest regression, in regards to overall performance of the OL, Howard Mudd should be fired.

Lmao.  Hall of fame caliber line coach should be fired one week into preseason.   You're the gift that keeps on giving bad takes

I have seen TY in a interview. He was so ready and excited for the season. Ebron  calling JB his son. I do not think the Luck situation is effecting them at all. Reich has put  the confidence in these guys they can win no matter what. The players really love JB.

As a coach’s kid I learn that lesson very early

    • I don't know about that one... but this was the playoffs of the 2003 season, Manning was at the very beginning of his stretch of dominance over the league. Dungy was also a very conservative head coach, even for 2003. Can't imagine any coach giving these instructions in 2020, but the league has become a lot more progressive in a relatively short period of time.    It was two years later in the playoffs against the Steelers when PM had to shoo the punt team off the field for a 4th down play. We all remember the visual. But I decided to look up the play by play. It was 21-3, Steelers, and that 4th down play was the last play of the 3rd quarter, ball at the Indy 36. It's hard to imagine any coach punting in that situation right now, especially with a QB who just won MVP by throwing 49 TDs the previous season. But Dungy's reflex was to punt, and it took PM, back to back MVP winner, QB of a team that started the season 13-0, to convince Dungy to let the offense go for it. Dungy mouthed his response: "It's on you."    My point is that it wouldn't surprise me to find out that Dungy wasn't a fan of PM having so much control at the line of scrimmage, especially back in 2003/2004, on the road, AFFCG. 
    • I agree and Id add that not addressing QB is the same (or worse) as making a bad pick at the position. Herbert and Love were in play but Ballard chose to address the DT position instead. The team needed a QB, there were QBs to be had and he passed. As those guys continue to develop and start to play its a reflection on Ballard imo.   
    • @Jared Cisneros @Narcosys   Choosing 1 from these for a flex: DeSean Jackson, Mike Gesicki, Mark Ingram, Corey Davis
    • I would go with Ekeler for the PPR aspect since right now both Drake and Chubb are being used as 2 down backs without many receptions. It is likely in Ekeler's favor, IMO. 
    • That's what manning said after the game.
