Jacoby Will Not Play Saturday

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.

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:

Well aren’t you a ray of sunshine?good morning GIF

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

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 would 100% give a second round for Darnold, hell we have fleeced the Jets enough and possibly trading Brissett along with it. I still think he has every single tool to be a great QB in this league, his issue is #1 whose around him talent wise and #2 who is coaching him. It gets him out of a bad situation and keeps us set up to be contenders moving forward. He gets the time to learn our offense and team and then next year we roll with Darnold and Eason. I honestly see it as an absolute win for every party involved besides Brissett but even then he would only be there for a year.   I think its a move we need to make because otherwise we are in QB purgatory for the next several years. We have too good of a defense and to much talent to sit idly by without having an above average QB. 
    • We aren't some bad team, he would sign here, and the price was a 3rd and conditional 5th that could be a 4th. Just offer a 3rd and 4th next year and you get him. Ballard knew this 100%. I don't give him the benefit of the doubt to draft pass-rushers. In fact, quite the opposite. He has proven he can't draft them with Lewis, Banogu, and Turay.
    • I think a rules change is needed lol...  IMO, you shouldn't have to pay any unrealized contract $ to retain rights, and you shouldn't lose the rights to any player retiring mid contract. The money should have returned, and if he ever decides to come back, the Colts should have first option to reinstate the contract. 
    • If about $20 plus mil. a year comes off the QB position with JB (even if we bring back Rivers), we should be able to make it work. If we felt it was a fit, we would make it work. It is just that Ballard still feels this roster needs more talent added on the offensive side and other areas that only draft picks can provide unless you overpay in free agency. That is my educated guess.
    • Looks like the Raven's are going to get him. He has talent, but the guy has been a cancer every place he's been. Lets not forget he's also suing both the Raiders and Patriots for signing bonus money.
