One thing Kelly definitely has on Brissett is a quicker release. That's one thing that kinda worries me about Brissett. Kelly gets it out so fast (and pretty accurately) on all these short throws.

Hi, Colts fans!   Our Indianapolis Colts are  southeast down Interstate 74 to play the Cincinnati Bengals in both teams 28th all-time preseason meeting. Colts are also trying to avoid   a winless 2019

Tell got beat on the sideline throw but was still in position to make a solid tackle. He's gotta have 4-5 with several of them in open field plus a couple pass breakups including one in the end zone. Cemented his spot if you ask me.

 

E.J. Speed has got to have 10 tackles. He's diagnosed plays quickly, shed blocks and made solid tackles at the line and in space. Far outplayed Adams and Franklin this preseason fo sho! Cemented his spot. 

 

Pascal and Rogers are making the roster purely based off of special teams skills - not because they've outplayed the others.

Adams is good. Speed already had a spot. Franklin, may get cut. 

 

Tell had a spot the minute they traded Hariston.

 

Rodger I agree with you I like Hogan, I think Pascal, is better. Would love Hogan to stick somehow, practice squad?

Does this kid not know that he can call a fair catch???

He's probably trying too hard.  Trying to make something happen.

 

Well, he IS making something happen, but it's all bad at this point.

We will carry 5 WRs like we always do.  We will have one or two 'available' on the practice squad.

 

we carried 6 several weeks late last year. 

 

"like we always do" regardless means little as we only have a one year sample size with Reich's O.

Penny Hart = JoJo Natson. Talented but jittery.

 

Ironically JoJo is now pretty solid 2 years later for the Rams.

Jojo made multiple big plays in preseason and had some great punt returns with us which earned him the job on the Rams. 

 

Penny Hart has done nothing but muff two punts.

Jojo had one really bad game for us and he was gone.  I had high hopes for him to stick.

wow low attendance

Nadine, I also notice that too.  A busy night of local  entertainment  in Cincinnati sports.  Colts are playing the Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium, the Reds are playing at the Miami Marlins right now at South Florida, and the University Of Cincinnati Bearcats football team are playing the UCLA Bruins on their campus.  And all three events started at the same time right after 7:00 PM Eastern Time!

 

Not to mention a few high school football games probably being played right now that we are not aware of in the Cincy area.

LoL...just the way he's always running.  Seems like whatever he's doing, he's always running!

I'm no QB evaluator, but it looks like he actually has good footwork.

 

Phillips making another case for him to stick.

We'll find out after cuts.  I'm not so sure he's safe.  I actually think he's gone.

Unless we sign someone in the next 3 days, he'll be here after Saturday. 

Honestly I'm fine with rolling the dice for 2 weeks until CK is back.

I don't think they will bring in someone for 2 weeks that doesn't even know the playbook....I think he's safe. Just my opinion of course.

They brought in Briskett a week before the season started and he ran the show in 2017.  It can be done.

Walker blows sign somebody.

I also noticed the QB for the bengals tonight is the guy we passed on signing for Kelly.

haha...that is very true.

 

It all depends on how management feels about those two games.  If they feel they can "throw" those 2 games then they just roll with Walker.  If they want to stay competitive then they sign someone.  They clearly have the money to blow on a vet for one year.

    • I wasn't really sold on Tomlin at first. I hated the tampa 2. Hated it especially against brady. So to tie all this in. They way you beat Brady is one of two ways. Lock down corner, or take his * down. Well we didnt have none of that because Belichick had the best offensive line in football for a while there. I mean... I hate to drop this here but... also the tuck rule. Not that I have any particular love for oakland but said to see the A's window shopping.   Anyway they regulated that style of football out of existence. Pay ur bigs up front, score points, dont overpay for a QB. Thats how the NFL works now. If Fisher comes back and is solid, screw it pay em all.
    • I've read several things on the topic, a lot which was mostly rumor and hypothesis.    My uneducated gut feel is.... MW kid goes to East Coast, to a team with fans who have a certain rep. Maybe a little culture shock Had early success, but maybe felt a little disrespected or uneasy in the whole Foles situation. The roster was up and down post 2017 for various reasons He got really frustrated given the injury and personnel issues last year Fans and team mates got frustrated Perfect storm/blend of everyone unhappy   Overall, I think Indy is a much better personality and cultural fit for Wentz. He's already bought land for hunting and seems pretty happy to acclimate. That could be huge in itself (acclimate, not just hunting land). And I think Indy fans will identify with a guy like him more than Philly did. IMO, he's more "Indy" than Luck. If he performs near Luck's level, fans will be happy, he'll be happy, and he'll be a Colt for a long time. I think the combo of the improved roster, and what I predict will be Reich's conservative play calling early, will likely give him a huge and quick boost in DVOA. I would not be shocked at all to see him jump immediately to top 16. If all of our starting WRs stay healthy, I can see top 10. IMO his biggest thing is just staying healthy and gelling with is pass catchers.   I'm a fan of DVOA, but it can be overly negative to QBs on teams that run the ball a ton, or are conservative with a lot of short passing.   Top 16 to make the playoffs, top 7ish to go far. The $s don't bother me. The $ plus picks make it a bet that needs to pay off.
    • Hey, I was so positive that Frank Reich, who gave career years for Luck and Rivers on several fronts, could even work with Sam Darnold and Trubisky if the Colts were to sign one of them. So you can definitely extrapolate what I think of what he could do with Wentz that I feel has more potential.  
    • IDK. Doubt he would have drafted as many if he had hit on one lol. His track record is pretty poor. And Lewis was a tweener, so I kind of remove him from the pure Edge picks.   And he actually said the 3T was the most important part of our D, yet he waited a good while to address.   I'm a big Tomlin fan btw.
