Reich presser 8/26

Recommended Posts

JB should be better this time around. I'm hoping a lot better because that 2017 team had a bad running game, bad oline, bad coaches,  no receivers outside of Ty, lack of familiarity with the offense, and a scheme that worked against the fact that the line was bad.  As a result the offense was plain terrible.   He's got exactly the opposite in almost every facet this time around.

“I certainly believe I will [be ready for Week 1],” Luck said to Peter King of Football Morning in America. “That’s certainly the goal.”
 

 

August 5th was not "late last week".

Well I know Bill Obrien doesn't think he's getting any automatic wins off the Colts since Brissett is in the saddle.

This screams to me that the team felt the injury wasn't that severe and he could play/practice on it and somewhat tried pushing him in a direction. All in or all out, no in between.

He's also not showing up in Week 1, and starting Week 2. He's been taking all the first team reps throughout the offseason program. He's as ready to be QB1 as he'll ever be.

 

If Brissett doesn't perform, it won't be because Luck walked away late in the preseason.

Geez, it is "so nice" that everyone feels good about Brissett.

The Colts ranking has gone from winning the AFC South to last in the AFC South. That's what they think of Brissett.

I'm still struggling to accept that our couple decades and perhaps a potential decade more of elite QB play has now evaporated, and our roster is now one of the best it's been in the past couple decades and shouldnt bomb enough to get us another elite QB.  Going to hurt for years, unless JB absolutely kills it.

 

I have hope for Kelly too assuming he gets over his stupid off the field problems.

What people think is irrelevant.  They thought we'd be in last place even with Luck under saddle last year.

I hate to say this but even though the players are sad about luck there seems to be some excitement in the air with the new start and now the cloud of uncertainty off.

 

Let's be honest, having reporters constantly trying to pry information about Luck's status had to wear on some of these guys after awhile. I would guess that there's at least a bit of relief to have that weight of uncertainty off of their shoulders & now they can just focus on football.

I wish I could dig it up, but I read somewhere this morning that he's taken something like 1,500 1st team reps so this offseason?

To be honest, it only matters what the Colts players think.  If they "think" they can win, they have a chance.  If they believe what others tell them, they've already lost.

Sounds right. Reich said 1200, but I think he was just talking about training camp. Another 300 during the off-season program sounds reasonable.

Glad to see Doyle understand and put some perspective on the booing. You knew the answers you would get but still asked. Ridiculous.

I hope this isn’t true. Apparently it came from the dealership. This is not a good look. Especially future players wanting to stay here.

It's fine to be upset or angry, I can even understand the booing a bit, but slashing tires is punk @$$ stuff. Let Q and Kelly go say hi to those turds.

In every video I’ve seen, it’s been him asking the question about fans booing. Pretty annoying.

Come ooooon with the booing questions...Can't one media guy explain that there is still tons of support for Luck's decision throughout the fanbase? Instead, they’re just trying to stir stuff up and get juicy quotes from players.

All this is doing is driving a wedge between the players and the fans and that sucks.

I have yet to see a post where luck is criticized for his decision. This initial boos were more shock than disrespect. Most fans understand and have been nothing but supportive. Now if he unretires to play for the Pats then off with his head, until then I wish him the best.

Ok.  Was Luck ever in a walking boot?  Usually, with ankle injuries severe enough to need rehab but not so severe as to jeopardize significant PT, they usually put the player in a boot of some sort to stabilize it.  He wasn't.  Couldn't have been that big of a deal.

Ya I also wasn't one of the selfish people booing that man off the field and burning his jersey either unlike some people on here I understand that he had to retire and I am happy for him it took strength to go up there and talk about what he is going through and he knew he wouldn't have been any good for the team if he stayed im at peace with him not being here anymore wish the team would have helped him more early in his career by just building him a team but regrettably it didn't work out that way so he retires and we have to hope Brissett can save us.

 

I wasnt either. I just understand the booing in the moment. How I feel about his retirement is boo. I understand and accept his reasoning. But I dont have to be happy about it just because he chose to.

I disagree. When people are taking off his jersey and burning it, It's hard, at least in my mind, to say it wasn't personal.

 

 

There are a few people burning jerseys. Let's not act like this is even close to a qtr of the fan base. On top of that, we are talking about booing in the moment of finding out your franchise QB, a huge reason you are a SB favorite decides to retire when this is the best Colts roster in over a decade.

I didn't see this topic before and I posted elsewhere about Reich's press conference today. I want to add that not only did Reich look so excited and enthusiastic today he spoke much quicker today like he didn't have to watch what he said. It just seemed like the weight of the world had been lifted from his shoulders. Full steam ahead Frank, make the playoffs this year and you'll be right up there with Peyton in Colt lore!

Colts media is full of itself. Especially the Athletic guys.  

  

Holder writes some good stuff, but he is full of himself and it rubs me the wrong way.

In a weird way this might help the team. With the uncertainty off Luck it could of really been effecting them.

If you are going to consistently post a thousand times a month all season long, please.... Grant just one request....I'm normally not the grammar Nazi or whatever, but there's no o way I can read "could of" that often.... Lol

That tweet is such a sad, jacked up, accurate mirroring of our society today.  Clayton Geathers admiring the courage it took for Luck to call it quits and step away because rehab is too mentally taxing.... Reich called it right.... Paradox....lol.  

 

Sure, so if only Clayton could muster the same courage as Luck managed.... He would have walked away long ago.... He's either an *, or just disgenuine, or thinks fans are complete *...lol.

    • So true    My degree in Political Science and a lifetime around kids under 18 have taught me a lot 
    • I am one that has no problem with people using stats to help measure a player. I got my degree in Business from IUPUI and had to take rough math classes and a statistic class that was off the chart. Stats are important, I get that. All I have ever said is there are more to rating a player than stats. Leadership is gigantic, at least to me it is, that is not a stat and can't be measured. JB is a great leader. The only 2 stats some seem to keep bringing up in here to say JB struggles or is below average are YPA and total yards passing per game. Every time someone tries to come back and say well he has 15 TD's in 8 games and only 4 INT's it gets ignored by those same people. Those 2 stats are crucial to stat people. If we had a QB that threw a lot of INT's we would stink period. Also another crucial stat is red zone efficiency, JB is great in the red zone.    To me this is just a waste of a post and my last one on it because with some they ignore other facts other than YPA and total yards passing. How can anyone have a reasonable debate with someone when they ignore things like a QB's leadership, that the WR core is average at best, etc.. Even when Hilton has played this season he has been banged up for the most part.   One last thing, it would be one thing if we were losing to bring up JB's yards passing but we are winning. JB isn't costing us any games as of now. If it was costing us games I would buy into some of these posts but it's not. I was listening to the Dan Dakich show earlier and he was saying how some Colts fans do not think JB is any good. He just laughed and said it is because they want a QB that throws for 5000 yards and is flashy. I rarely agree with him but he has a good point here. Some just need to accept JB isn't Andrew Luck and we now have a run 1st offense. I have accepted it because we are winning and as a fan have to accept it because that is the hand we are dealt. The only alternative is, not to watch anymore.
    • Good tidbits. To add - We were gifted a in-the-grasp on a TD throw by Watkins. A healthy Fuller scares me. 
    • The Week 7 meeting: Colts 30 TX 23 Brissett was 26 of 39 for 326 yards passing nd 4 TDs He is 4-0 vs, TX. Hooker & Kenny Moore did not play. TX had 10 penalties for 54 yards. TX were 2 for 5 in the Red Zone. The Colts did not get one first down running the ball. Watson was 23 of 43 for 308 yards. Hopkins caught nine passes. Will Fuller left the game with an injury. What impact if any will the hammering of the Texans have on their game?  The Texans have the Patriots next.
    • We should run all over Carolina, so that's positive. Allen is so inconsistent. He's putting up plenty of yards, but he's been an INT machine at times. If he has a clean game, could be trouble. I was very surprised they beat TN, and stayed close to GB in GB.
