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

    • The covid IR rules are helping this team a ton. Imagine if they were the old IR rules. We would of had to cut some players because guys like Burton would not of went on IR. I hope they keep some of these rules because teams can keep more of their players instead of having to cut them.
    • Yep. He was loved by every analyst too as a single high FS, and looked good his first year with the Colts. He'll be a bargain for someone IMO if he can stay healthy.    What's also weird though, is that Flus hinted that he wanted to play more man last year. Aside from the KC game, didn't seem like it happened much. And we drafted both Rock and Blackmon from heavy man systems. I think Willis was too. I just don't understand to be honest what Flus is really all about yes. Was he waiting to get a 3T and pressure up front to go more man? He has that now. And if not, not sure I understand Ballard's draft choices as they seem to be converse to Flus's scheme.
    • With his injury history, I doubt there are going to be many teams out there offering to dish out money like he'd be a guaranteed starter, and I would doubt many teams are going to be throwing long-term deals at him.  He has to prove he can stay healthy for a 16 game season, something he hasn't done in 4 years (7 games, 14 games, 13 games, <2 games).     So, it wouldn't be too surprising (IMO) if Ballard offered him a 1 year deal with a low guarantee and some incentives built in... but he probably knows he's a better fit in a different scheme and can get a similar deal elsewhere where he's more suited to play.     It will be interesting... if JT/Wilkins/Hines prove they're a formidable trio, where would Mack fit in the puzzle if he came back to Indy next year... I'd think he'd be able to go elsewhere, get offered more $ and have a better chance to get more carries.  I could be wrong, but my sense is that JT is going to establish himself a true #1 RB in this league before this year ends.  I understand his wear may be an issue considering how many miles he put on in college, but so far (in limited time) Wilkins has shown he can be a solid supplement to him.  Mack has already shown the league he can be an upper-level back in the NFL, so I don't think he'll have too much trouble finding $ if he is passing all his physicals and looking good in his workouts.     TJ Green or Laron Landry... I don't think Hooker is even close to either of those guys.  Hooker produced in college, he was producing very well (being talked about DROY) as a rookie before he got hurt.  He hasn't been a bad football player here.  He doesn't get thrown at much.  He's playing a scheme that isn't entirely suited to his skill set... but he has shown he can play.  TJ Green was a raw guy who didn't produce near the level as Hooker did in college and never showed anything in the NFL (another Grigs bust) and Landry was a roided out freak who was shown the door by the league because he couldn't pass PED tests.   Hooker, if he can stay healthy, can play in this league.  That is his major concern, is his health... he is an above average football player who could be very good if he's in the right system.     Yes, that was a weird scenario all around.  Ballard, keep in mind, didn't get to choose his coach.  He was basically stuck with Pagano.  Ballard knew what scheme he wanted to run on D, which was different than Pagano.  Pagano was talking about Hooker as 'the next Ed Reed' (who played under Pagano when he was a DC in Baltimore).  Hooker really fit the Pagano mold.  I would not be shocked, if Pagano is still in a defensive coordinator position going into next year that Hooker went to whatever team Pagano was affiliated with, TBH.  
    • Agreed.  He came to the Colts to play with Luck, make a lot of stats, win a lot of games, and make a lot of money.  When Luck quit, and he had to play with Brissett, none of those things were going to happen anymore, and he knew it.  The light just went out of his eyes, and he didn't really care to be here anymore.
    • I can absolutely see the loss costing us positioning in the playoffs. Hopefully it was just rust (execution and game plan) and we'll start to roll. There really is no making up for a loss to a team ranked 32nd (at the time). It is what it is, and you just got to move on. Perhaps beating TN on the road might make up for, but honestly TN doesn't look all that great right now, and I already thought we'd fair well against them.   As far as the whole O vs D thing, simply put, they are symbiotic. A good D helps the offense by giving them opportunity and field position. A good O helps the D by keeping them off the field.
