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.

The only good thing from practice today was DF and MO both got touchdowns.

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.

This is such a great point. We have young talent we weren’t the browns with no 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.

You thought we had QB problems. The eagles are one injury away with Wentz of being screwed.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
