Bummer that all the starters are out! I’m going with a group of friends, including some Bears fans(Boo!). Alot of people on here saying they feel bad for people going and that it’s too much money to go watch scrubs....Going to a game at Lucas is more then just watching the game. It’s about tailgating, hanging out with good friends and having a good time, razzing the opposing teams fans, all in fun of course, and also hanging out with fellow bleed blue colts fans! Same reason I went to watch the Cubs even during the bad years, the atmosphere and fans were awesome no matter what. I don’t really mind watching the second and third stringers fighting for their futures. 

 

As far as price, I got a pretty good seat for $48, so can’t complain. It’s going to be a fun day no matter what, not going in with high expectations like I do during regular season.

I hear ya. I used to love going to games because of the atmosphere alone. Like I have posted I have been to probably 50 games in my lifetime but I have never been to a pre-season game. It would still be fun if you went with good friends, eating and drinking. Enjoy the game brother.

Moon only beats River in sexual harassment allegations.

Do you find that stat in the box score?

So many players got hurt last night in the games. Even the backup QB in Tampa.

Totally agree, but preseason is turning into a try out period and not a preseason for the regulars to prepare for season.  NFL is going to have to address and likely limit the preseason games, have more joint practices and stop sticking it to the season ticket holders for these glorified open practices.  

 

Unfortunately, week 1, doesn't matter who is out there, if not Luck, then we start 0 -- 1 regardless.  :Cry:

So question - do you have season tickets?  

 

An observation - I don't know why people get so worked up over the cost of preseason games.  If I pay $2500 for two season tickets including 2 preseason games, what do you think my total cost will be if they cut back to 2 preseason games and leave the regular season at 16?  The correct answer is still $2500 (unless there is a price increase)

 

Last, do you think the Colts will just forfeit the game in LA if they know Luck will be out?

I can answer this one:

 

Yes, I have season tickets.

 

Last week's tickets didn't sell (listed at half price), so I donated them 2 days prior to game day.

Today's tickets sold for around $40 each (face value approx $70). I was pleasantly surprised.

 

If they eliminate pre season games, or still play them but not make season ticket holders buy pre season game tickets, I am 99.99% sure my price for 8 regular season home games would increase to cover that lost revenue.

 

If Luck doesn't play vs Chargers, the coaches, players, (and I) believe 100% that they are going to go into LA and win the game. (yes, I realize the forfeit question was meant to show the absurdity of the "give up/negative" attitude some fans have)

It has been a trend this year

    The Packers “rested” 33 players including Aaron Rodgers last night

That's  because  the field  was in terrible  condition

There was a good possibility that AR was not going to play in perfect conditions

He wasn’t talking about their ranking. He was talking about their style of play. I tend to agree they are pretty similar in that regard. That is why we can still run our offense with JB without changing much.

 

Dan Dakich is pretty funny on the radio right now.

 

 

Brissett  has trouble with blitz reads and his touch throws have too much heat on them. The area Brissett  has improved  since his 2017 start is pocket  presence. In the game versus the browns I saw two plays he ordinarily would have been  sacked on. He stepped up and evaded the pressure

I have season tickets too and went last week but skipping tonight.

 

I think we are on the same page. I believe they have already started progressive ticket pricing. I am simply saying that I view my cost for 8 regular season games to be $2500. Which is what I will pay regardless the number of preseason games.

Exactly.   It's 2500 for 8 games with 2 free preseason games

I think the blitz reads will improve with him getting more reps with Ryan Kelly if he has to play week one. Kelly and luck are so good at  pass protection calls. Also remember they are not really scheming with certain packages getting more blockers in and stuff like that. I agree with the to much heat. I was concerned with him and Ebron because Ebron makes some crazy catches. After those two catches Saturday that doesn’t concern me quite as much. I think that comment was just a general thing about their  style of play. Brissett can get the ball down field so we won’t have to alter the offense that much.

If it weren’t for his suspension this would be no contest at the third string QB.  Kelly would be the guy and he is making a strong case for the Colts to carry three regardless of Luck’s health because he’s too good to let get away.

I think this confirms that JB will be the week 1 starter.  

 

In my opinion, I wouldn't expect to see Luck until week 3 at the earliest and most likely after the bye week.

    • I expect  Brissett  to be much better eventually.  Luck was brought  along just as slow the beginning  of last year and every one was like where are the deep balls? Eventually  Cain, Campbell,  or Roger's will get more involved  with offense.   
    • To me, we would know his progression, not ceiling. I’ll bet the playbook is still not fully installed yet, nor fully grasped by all of the player.  Some are further along than others as well.  I believe we can thank the CBA (with its very much reduced coach/player/team activities in the off season) at least in part for the less than stellar offensive creativity and brilliance in execution.   JB is a Works In Progress. I don’t feel that 4 weeks will determine his final destination. Unless, he really isn’t going to be more than average.  I’m watching the full year.  That should be a good indicator for what the team should plan to do next off season/training camp,
    • For a second, based on the link title, I thought that someone pulled an Aaron Hernandez.
    • Yep.   And nothing you’re going to type will move me from that position.   I appreciate what he did when was here. But that appreciation is only for what he did prior to his little show this year. 
    • Facts Also the turn over factor for the Tenn game. Ball was on the ground a few times instead of trying to scoop it and make a play secure it first. Hooker dropped an INT along with Bobby.
