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.

    • Maybe I'm too much of an optimist but I think Wentz is going to be just fine.  Reich knows how to handle QBs, and not to put too much on their plates.   The schedule is going to be tougher this year, but that never plays out like we think.  Last year I thought the Vikings, and even the rest of the NFC was going to be tough and a split would be good.  But we swept them.  Same expectations with the NFC West this year.   I expect the Jags to be better, and none of us should be surprised if they win a game there.  IMO Titans stayed about the same and who the heck knows what the Texans are doing?     Anyway, the most important game on the schedule is the next one.  I'm so looking forward to it!
    • They wouldn't be the first team to do a creative deal where the team trading the player pays some of the salary.  You wouldn't think Ballard would go there but no one saw the Buckner trade either.  If we were in win now mode with Rivers I am certain nothing has changed with the addition of Wentz.  I would think waiting for Ertz to be released is the more likely next move.  
    • Gotta fill air time and band-width with something.  All of that infrastructure overhead is expensive.
    • Wentz has already been pigeon holed as the whipping boy for the O.  You know some are just waiting for the opportunity.  He partly was that at Philly, and that reputation has already partly made its way to the Colts.  Its not going to take much to blame him for a lot that goes wrong.   I'm sure Ballard is more fair than that, but my guess is that if Wentz fails, its going to be viewed more as a statement about Wentz than it will a statement about Reich.
