Colts Browns joint practice 8/15

Recommended Posts

Any more details regarding the extent of Fountain’s injury and recovery time. I saw that it is a dislocated ankle and fracture but haven’t seen more details. 

 

A couple of years ago Ronald Darby had a nasty looking dislocated ankle in week 1 and was back on the field in early November.

there is no defense for a perfect ball. good coverage by the CB but damn.

 

 

Please don't underrate the effort on that catch. Diva WRs rarely stretch out like that nowadays. Luck has hit TY like that and he doesn't even have to break stride.

Nothing. I think he had surgery after going to the hospital. I would think his season is over. Not sure with as bad as it looked they would use the spot on IR to see if he could come back. I think they only get maybe one spot for the 8 week designation.

Peyton was not just a spectator, he engaged players and coaches a lot, he spent a lot of time talking to Luck and I swear he was calling some plays late in practice at the red zone drills. I am really surprised at all the negativity being posted on here. There were a lot of bright spots at todays practice. Ty was awesome, TE group scored several TD's , WR were doing an outstanding job blocking on run plays. Overall it was a very good practice, except for the Fountain injury

That's a throw that Brissett could never make.  He lacks touch, everything is fast and hard...

 

Go look at the Brissett highlights at 3:51.

I haven't seen any of training camp, but is it possible the oline has struggled and looked bad because La Raven Clark and J'marcuss Webb are on the field too much? Can Brissett recognize anything? When the qb is hesitant and confused the oline doesn't look good either.

That's why I'm keeping my fingers crossed Luck can go. He and Kelly are great at calling out the right protections and assignments.  Even at less than 100% I would trust Luck more to get the job done.

Dead wrong.

 

Since 2017, teams get TWO players they can bring back from IR.  Also since 2017, teams do not have to designate said players with IR return tag.

That's the old rule I think. Teams can place a player on the PUP list after pre season and he's eligible to return week eight. It went from one player to 2 players. I don't see anything in the new rule that states if there is a limit to the number of players you can designate to your PUP list. 

 

Sorry .. I see this was already explained in a previous post.

Read this article. Tells you a lot about Freddy Kitchens when the fights started. Reich was in on the last one trying to break it up and kitchens just sat back and seemed please.

I was just reading that Kelly didn’t even do team drills yesterday. Then Nelson was out also. It makes sense they struggled but it shows how bad our backups are.

i remember when Kelly was out last season they said luck had more responsibility with calling out the pass protection. That is probably why Evan did so well. If Brissett does have to play hopefully with Kelly that will improve.

I think that finding a way to keep both Cain and Fountain was the main reason they’ve been trying to force that PR duty on Hines.  We could keep only 5 WRs, but still have a PR.  Now, we can just keep Rogers as #5 and call it good.  Rather have Fountain healthy, though. 

 

Side note: you guys see that Delanie Walker (35YO) had the exact same injury as Fountain last September, and he’s on schedule to play Week 1?

from all I've seen, they've been trying to push KR (not PR) to Hines. there hasn't been too much experimentation at PR since Campbell went out.

Hines took to PR in the Buffalo game I think.

There aren't enough starter level offensive linemen to fill the starting five for each team, so no, the backups are not even average level linemen, no team has more than 1 or 2 capable backup OL.

Chloe, while I appreciate your posting of every single bit of colts coverage here all in one convenient place, you can't post an article and blatantly misquote it.  

 

It says kitchens didn't seem displeased, and wanted his team to dictate pace, and inferred intensity on day two.  He felt day one they let the Colts take it to them too much.   It is pretty much the opposite of saying he just sat there pleased his team was causing altercations, like you alluded to....

We can’t forget the Preseason OLs are often patchwork since those 4 weeks are an chance for coaches/players to tinker with things and/or try new things(positions)

you have a guy called luck if you haven't forgot. Brissett is seriously probably in the top 3 best backup QB's in the NFL. he is pretty darn good but no backup is a guy that can carry a team for long periods.

 

just need him to step in and give you a chance to win  for a couple games. If you lose your Starter for the year you dont have a chance. the nick foles thing was a once in a century occurrence not the norm. 

Nick Foles begs to differ....

Tom Brady was Drew Bledsoe's back up and when Bledsoe got hurt, took the reins in NE and well, we've seen how that has worked out.

Completely agree with on paper that this is a Browns team with a huge amount of potential. But we’ve seen lots of teams talked up before a season who don’t perform to standard. 

 

In addition, in the politest way, much like teams NE have had winning culture for years, the Browns have had the inverse. 

 

Hoping that you guys are good this year as I dislike the other teams in the AFC North, but as @jvan1973 said, need to see it before I crown

them.

FWIW I have you guys going 10-6 and winning the North. This prediction could backfire on me though lmao . Steelers and Ravens both do not look as good to me as they usually are, Bengals stink IMO.

i understand i do i have lived it.  the browns #1 problem since 99 was picking players and talent.  they had a bottom 5 roster and was drafting top 10 every year. John dorsey is the man and knows how to find real football players. now most people would say they have a top 5 roster.

 

problem #2  was the merry-go round of coaches. the owner let dorsey pick the coach this time and i know kitchens is unproven but i fully believe he is the guy.  he knows how to lead he was the QB at alabama under gene stallings, was an assistant under nick saben and bill parcells who he talks to regularly. he knows what good coaching is and is making this team into tough physical team that is close knit.  Full pads every practice except 1 so far with live hitting most days.

 

so while most people need to see it.  i can see it coming from a mile away.

Well, I'm with ya at least. I'm not a big fan of crowning any team as world beaters, not even the Colts, but I do think the Browns will have their most successful season in a long time. The only thing I'm in wait and see mode is  with Kitchens. Not that I don't think he'll succeed, just that it's unknown at this point.

There's no limit on padded practices? That's cool, I must've confused a minicamp rule or something.

Nobody really knows with 100% certain if Luck will play on opening day. By my knowledge of the game of 40 years I say he will. The only way I will be wrong is if the Doc's say he needs surgery IMO. Peyton Manning said on Twitter he feels good about Luck playing on opening day. Chris Mort feels good about him starting too, he is a great source. As you know I said last year before the season, more than 35 TD's and playoffs and many thought I was crazy haha .

If memory serves me right,  I believe the Browns went 7-8-1 last year.   

 

Mayfield should be even better, and he was very good as a rookie.    They added talent in FA and the draft.   Does OBJ ring a bell?

 

I think this team has a double-digit win roster.

 

What I don't know if it has,  is a double-digit win head coach.    So far this off-season,  I haven't been all that impressed.....    Hope for Browns' fans sake that Dorsey didn't blow the HC search.....

 

Just sayin.....

    • Can someone enlighten me on the 2020 class for TEs. With Ebron struggling, I could see Ballard letting him walk, which would then create a hole we would need to fill at TE.   Doyle is a good run blocking/gadget TE, but we will need that TE who is a matchup nightmare for LBers and DBs.   One TE I really like is a local prospect, Brycen Hopkins from Purdue. 
    • This is just one point of view of the play. You can go see the other views on league pass. He sees his first option is covered on the crossing route and he panics. On the other angle you can see just half a second later Pascal gets open on a corner route. This is what happened. This is a great pocket and great pass-protection snap. There is no reason for him to flee the pocket in this one and anything else is whataboutism and pointless excuses. The thing with this "if this was Mahomes" thing is... Mahomes actually is looking downfield to make the pass when he leaves the pocket and he actually makes a TON of plays downfield on the move. Brissett doesn't make those plays because when he leaves the pocket he drops his eyes and is looking to run more than to pass. 
    • I'm not sure if they are actually getting worse, or if people are just getting more upset about it/it's getting more exposure.  I don't know if there are some statistics we could look at to see if they are getting worse, or if we just think they are.   They were last year.  The NFL suspended the full time program this year, but I'm not sure why.
    • Brown plays for Seattle.. Tunsil is healthy
    • The refs are garbage. saw the second call last night that wasn't even close that was the worst hands to the face call I have ever seen.
