Colts Vs. Bears Preseason Game Night Thread

The fact Kelly moved the ball in the  4th quarter the last two games really shows how bad Walker is.

From what I can see the OLine is the same the 2nd half?  Looks like it is Walker just having a bad game again.  Clark is just not having a good night tonight, though.

LeRaven Clark has to be cut. He's getting destroyed by 2nd and 3rd stringers. I do not want to see him out there in the regular season at any rate.

Walker knows it’s the end of the line.  Kelly got the starter reps in the 3rd preseason game. Looks like he’s over thinking out there.  No confidence.

I hope Phillip Walker plays all 4 quarters against the Bengals and then gets cut immediately afterwards.  Chad Kelly and Brisset have already shown enough.

Keeping Clark in this late is not a good sign

 

  yes

Have we had any other QB’s in camp?

If Luck isn’t ready game one though we would need another QB.

Was Clark in when Kelly was in?

Yes and he was getting killed then too. Chad Kelly is just a playmaker and was playing with better receivers.

I think so.  He’s always had a problem with speed guys.  A guy going around him & him pushing the defender in the back (right into his QB) is a normal occurrence.

Yep.  Oline looks the same as what was in the 1st half to me.

And if there has been any doubt that Kelly was the better QB.....this game continues to prove it

That’s not saying much.  Stephen Morris 2 years ago was the better QB...

Whoever the dude playing QB for the Bears is, he’s throwing some pretty passes

Good point.  Well put him on the practice squad.  But play him all 4 quarters next week to avoid injury to the other QBs.

Clark started at left tackle a few weeks last season and was bad then too. Cost us the game against Phili. We can't take the chance that he gets in during the regular season. He's gotta go.

 

Chris Ballard needs to have his eyes on potential backup linemen that gets cut from other teams because we have very little depth. I'm only comfortable keeping Haeg and Andrews outside of the first 5.

It's going to depend on if Andrew is playing week one. Walker will make the roster if Luck doesn't play because Chad Kelly is suspended the first two weeks. If Luck does play, Walker probably will be on the practice squad until Kelly's suspension is finished.

Beohm did a good job for Kelly last year.

I vote for adding a QB of the waiver wire

Can Andrews play another position?  I like Boehm to back up at G & C.

I think people are being a little too hard on Walker. Kelly is obviously the better quarterback,  but Walker is out here throwing passes to Veasy and Marcus Johnson. He doesn't have Cain or Krishawn out there.

 

Not to mention he has two horrible tackles in the game giving him no time to do anything.

    • you said Viniateri was who you would trade.. I said that would cost us in value versus gaining in a trade...    meaning: we would be more likely to have to pay someone to accept his trade than someone pay us for him.    Understand? example:  Chris Ballard to Bengals: we’ll trade you 13, 34, next years 1st, 2nd, and Viniateri for that #1 pick (Joe Burrow)   Bengals: Drop Viniateri and you have  a deal... otherwise, go ahead and throw your 3rd round pick in there. 
    • This. If he comes back I suspect it’s going to be a very easy negotiation. Ballard knows what he is worth and AC isn’t looking to be the highest paid. But it won’t shock me if he does end up the highest paid LT.
    • So the head to head matchup doesn’t mean anything? That’s kind of strange.
    • Gonna disagree on the underlying premise here. Reich has been building the offense around a scheme, more than a person. Sure play calling is subject to personnel, but Reich doesn't want to build something predicated on a person. He wants guys, QB included, that fit his offensive scheme.  The things that are causing him to hold onto the ball a long time, are the real issues, and are not exactly easy to solve. They are the same things he's been struggling with consistently since college. Again, IMO, Reich wants to build more around a scheme, not a player. Do you really think he wants to change his coaching scheme/identity?    Also, on elite slot guy, Brissett has struggled to hit open slots all year in the seam +5 yards, and especially +10. The seam is prime time locale for slots and TEs, and JB simply missed them most of year. Plenty of struggles in this area before injuries took their toll, and plenty of all-22 shots showing open guys in the seam even after the injuries. You can look at Nextgen's passing charts on JB and see the same thing.   Hypothetically speaking, what specifically is needed to promote JB's strengths. We already have a top 5ish OL and running game. We had two pretty good TEs most of the year. Sure we had injury issues with WRs, but we still had plenty of open guys even with replacement guys.    Reich's O is already a lot of short passes, and occasional deep shots. The deep shots aren't necessarily to an area though (some are), that's more a Chud type O. So you're basically saying mask his inability to be accurate, and Reich should change his core scheme principal instead of finding a player to fit his offensive philosophy?  Don't agree here. JB simply didn't go deep a lot early. They tried to go deep more later, but simply was not successful. Take a look at the Nextgen weekly charts.    You also need to take into account that teams started playing us different after they got tape on JB. They started zoning more, which JB also struggled with, even with WRs getting open. They also started focusing on the run and daring him to pass, playing farther off the line. Even some of the worst passing Ds gave him significant trouble. There are very real reasons why he was turned into a game manager several games.  To wrap this up, he's no AR, but he's also deficient in a lot of areas and not a lot of other guys either. His average rank for instance in the 4 core QB measurements (YPG, QBR, Comp%, AVG) are 27th IIRC. While even a game manager QB like Jimmy G's average was 9th. I'm just not sure a coach, or an organization should scrap or change drastically, the scheme of the coach they hired to install that scheme. Not sure that they should be pressed into augmenting personnel on either side of the ball to mask deficiencies for a guy that might not fit the teams O scheme in the first place. Would you ask Andy Reid to change his scheme to fit JB?
