Week 3 Recap? Snap Counts? Injuries?

Recommended Posts

Andrew retired, I get it.......but the show does go on.

 

Has anyone seen any analysis of how our rookies and other depth players faired?

 

Has anyone seen anything on snap counts?

 

Has anyone heard of any injuries?

 

From what I recall Turay, Banogu, Muhammad, Ward, and Stewart lived in the Bears backfield.

 

Speed seemed to be everywhere again at the linebacker spot.

 

Beyond that I only remember Shak Taylor and Wilson knocking down passes in the secondary - even that final touchdown Taylor had a hand on the ball.

 

The offense under Kelly was watchable and Cain and Pascal cemented their roster spots, in my opinion.

 

One bit of curiosity, it seemed as though Hentges played more than Ross, which leads me to believe that the two blockers are Doyle/Alie-Cox and the pass catchers will be Ebron/Ross. Hentges to the PS more than likely.

 

Last note.....every team we've played from the Bills to the Browns to the Bears all brought blitz packages to sack our QB's while we have not. We've put a ton of pressure and got our sacks from our front four alone. That's without Sheard and only a few snaps from Houston. It appears that Ballard may have his two deep afterall.....

 

Anyone have anything else to add that they saw?

Le’Raven Clark should be given his walking papers now. I’m 6ft, 165 lbs and I would be a better LT than him at this point. 

 

West deserves a shot to split time with Hines behind Mack.

 

Mo Allie Cox is a passing threat, more so than Ross imo. 

 

Turray was disappointing in Preseason game 1, but he has been winning his 1on1s lately... granted against backups, but it’s promising. He will get some of those chances with more focus on Houston/Autry.

 

Wilson played Ok, nothing amazing, but not bad. 

 

Defense looked good as a whole, despite the score line, that bears offence was stifled.

It’s very impressive we have not had to blitz to get pressure. That makes the defense even better if that holds up in the regular season.

It was just pre-season, but it was nice to see offense and defense dominate in the 1st half.  Really excited about Cain and Turay after this game...

Chad Kelly has something. He made a pass to Cain that was on a rope! I was in awe of that arm! I have a feeling this kid is something special.

 

Cain is gonna be a household name this year!

 

Kelly to Cain WILL be the call for the Colts in the next 3 years. I'm excited for our future no matter what the last 24 hours brought us.

 

Go Colts!:colts:

The problem is they have no one better than Clark.  If AC gets hurt they have no backup left tackle unless haeg can swing over there and play.

Yea, this team only has 3 tackles now, Costanzo, Smith, and Haeg. Clark and Webb can't cut it. Barton is better than Clark. I saw Barton playing some rg when Webb was at rt in the 4th qtr. I was really impressed with Speed in this game, he was every where and didn't look hesitant. Kelly and Cain looked good. I am going to say now Hentges makes the team over Travis. Our linebackers are going to be very very good, borderline exceptional. If Hooker is fully healthy this year and he appears to be, this defense is going to shine.

I see something in him too.

He looks like a starter.  Comfortable and confident.

Ballard will be watching the wirecat cut-time.

Bet on it.  If we see it, he does too.

I am sure he will but the problem is teams don’t let go of many quality left tackles at cut down time.

I know but some teams will have tough decisions at OL like we do at CB , WR, etc.  A promising UDFA that there just isnt room for, or a surprise vet let go because the team wants to get younger. It happens every year.  They dont have to start, just upgrade what we have (at the very least).

Yeah I am sure they can find an upgrade but I think that will be a band aid and not a real solution is all.

I’m not asking for a starting caliber LT at backup, just a serviceable guy who can get you through a few weeks with a passable performance and not get u starting QB murdered from his blind spot.

While Clark is no world beater he is not a turnstile either. Look how we have abused other 2nd and 3rd string lines with no exotic blitz packages.

 

He started for Castonzo last year and we still finished the year only giving up 18 sacks.

 

Chew on that for a bit.

    • They don't have to key on him as much with Brissett in the mix.  I don't think he'll hit Hilton in this game for the home-run or long-balls.  Different era of arm and mindset now that Luck's gone.
    • it all depends on what Frank decides to run on game day
    • It's also worth mentioning that Carolina has a top ten OL, while TB's OL is bottom 10.  I've never been a fan of Winston, but it's much easier being a QB for Car, and it's certainly nice to have a guy like McCaffrey to take the pressure off a backup.   Also, didn't Winston have like 5 INTs and 2 fumbles. Pretty hard to win with 7 turnovers. Very surprised Carolina didn't beat them by more. I think Winston's QBR was under 10.0 lol.    
    • Now now this is a bit of a strawman. It's one game, in which both QBs were playing so they had a direct impact on each other's numbers. I mean it was hard in some ways for Allen to put up yards when his D kept gifting him great starting position.   To your wider comparison, Allen is a backup covering for a starter and they have a RB lighting it up. I'm not surprised they've kept it quite conservative. Even then, it's never been an O built on gaudy passing numbers.    Winston.. is when you've found out the answer to "is he the guy", but at least you won't die knowing. Has the arm, doesn't have the QB smarts IMO. I'd certainly rather have the latter than former if I had to choose one. But what's wrong with wanting both?    Again... and I will keep repeating this, why is it so wrong to want to see if Brissett is capable of slinging it when needed. Quite prepared to be patient, but also not going to ignore that he has some worrying shortcomings so far and it's not just his reluctance to push it deep. Progressions, locking onto receivers, a few misdiagnoses of defenses (overly critical of me I know). I'd almost be more forgiving if he was trying to make plays and making mistakes, but he's being very conservative and still making some fundamental errors. In a short span of games you'd live with it, but the hope is that he's going to be our guy for years right?
