Colts Vs. Bears Preseason Game Night Thread

Recommended Posts

It’s clear his heat isn’t in it anymore. Good thing we have JB. What a horrible thing to do to the team though.

Wow...hope this isn't true.  But if it is...always felt like he didn't really love the game and had other interests.  Would be a shame for our franchise.

Marital stress.  Having kids weighs you down, lol.

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

I liked Boehm last year when he was backing up Kelly but he's been bad himself this Summer. That's why Andrews has been starting over him.

Wow, didn't know he took a step back.  Thanks for that.

Luck is officially the Indy version of Bert Jones if this happens.  Manning was the Indy Unitas.

I’ve thought that recently.

This is horrible to say, but I had a bad feeling when he got married and his wife got pregnant. I could tell he wanted to focus on his family... which is totally his perogative, but I knew we had lost him then. :Cry:

After battling injury after injury, the word is that #Colts QB Andrew Luck was simply too worn down to continue. And so he abruptly retires at age 29. Jacoby Brissett is the new QB of the Colts.

We gave the greatest QB prospect since Manning & Elway Grigson & Pagano to work with...  If he is done that will be the legacy left...

Kind of hard to argue with that, honestly.

Unfortunately I think the year after is the real QB year.  I think Lawrence & Fields both have star potential.

Man, gotta give credit to the Bear's receiver for that TD...the defensive guy made a great play, but the receiver still came up with the ball :(

We still have JB for one more year.  Now we have to think about extending him.  Geez...this is bad on so many levels.

Chad Kelly may be the Colts starter by season's end if he can keep his nose clean.  He reminds me of Luck maybe he won't be quite the head case.

Whoever said "gut punch" said it all. I thought it was some sort of bad joke. No words that are fitting for a family forum.

The more I think about this, the madder I get....I have lost all respect for Luck, no longer a fan at all!

I don't take it so personally.  Have no idea what is going through his head and body.  he has to make the best decision for he and his family.

 

As a Colts fan, though, it's the worst case scenario.  Completely bumbed about it.  Going to be tough to go to sleep tonight, but the sun will shine in the morning...

I hope so too. But if it is nonsense, media folks sure have bought into it.

Colts management might make a trade or acquire a QB again from the waiver wire after the final cuts 53 like they did to Jacoby Brissett from the Patriots a few seasons ago.

    • Bridgewater said that it would need to be the right situation if he was going to leave NO. Chargers would be since they are set up to win. This QB situation in the draft isn’t close to being finalized.    
    • https://www.si.com/.amp/nfl/2020/01/27/super-bowl-liv-49ers-chiefs-kobe-bryant-eli-manning-mmqb?__twitter_impression=true   First off what an amazing story and reading the details of how Mahomes was drafted. In the story Veach, Ballard and a select few knew in February they were going to draft Mahomes and the plan was going to how to get up there and draft him.   I'll say this. If Colts are in the Qb market for the draft I'm sure they know who they want or have an idea. I'm also sure there is talks if there is plans on how to secure that Qb since there are teams ahead of them. Not saying they are going to draft one for sure but they're doing the work.
    • You don't think the 2019 Colts roster is better than the 2017 roster?   In 2017 the O-line was lousy.   Now it is top 3 in the league.  Brissett played very similar in 2017.   The better O-line cut his sacks in half.     In his 4 years in the league his accuracy % is very consistent.  Around 60%.    
    • I think improving just iDL, or even both iDL and DE would make the back end look much much better. I look at things heavily based on chosen scheme. Our current scheme simply won't work without an improved pass rush. And our pass rush ranked pretty darn low. I think improvements in that are make the whole machine hum along better, and we'd see the DBs look more "ball hawking" instead of  "geesh, how long to I have to cover this guy". While I've never been a big fan of Geathers, I think Desir if perhaps the bigger need to upgrade as far as DBs are concerned. But again, perhaps they both look a lot better if we had a decent pass rush. I really love using Oke at both SAM, and on passing downs at MIKE. It's great bang for the buck. Since we use SAM a third or less % of the time, it's great to get more value out of Oke by getting passing down snaps from him at MIKE. I'm not a fan of Walker in passing downs, but even less of a fan of Oke in running downs at MIKE. I am a big fan of Walker in running downs though. Walker won't compel a big dollar contract only being a 2 down LB, so not sure you have to worry about a big extension.    On his grade, keep in mind that Walkers grade suffered when he moved to WILL when Leonard was out for 3 games, and he played 100ish% of snaps and had to defend the pass. Honestly I wish they would have left Walker at MIKE and let fill in for Leonard at WILL. IIRC, Walker is only making 2.6M now, which is less than Oke and Speed. He's not a FA until 21, so we've got time. While he's likely not a pressing need for the FO, I wouldn't be shocked to see him sign something in the 5-6M range sooner than later, which would be at the bottom of the top 20. 8-9 would put him in the 12-13 range, and honestly I don't see that given he's a 2 down guy.
    • I would think with the talent they have they would want more of a veteran. They are in a win now mode. A rookie sets them back. They are not on a rebuilding mode. They have more talent then the colts I think. Go after a tackle in the first and get a veteran. They are getting ready to play in the new stadium so maybe they want a young exciting QB. So much can change after FA starts. If they get Brady they have to take a tackle at 6 though.
