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.

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.

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.

Look at it this way, who are we going to sign off the street that would come in and win @ LAC and @ TN ?  If JB goes down, they're losses anyway.

We would only be throwing the game if JB go hurt. A veteran off the street isn’t going to win either if JB gets hurt so I don’t think it really matters.

OK I tried to defend Walker last week with the horrible offensive line play, but no more. He is trash. I thought he was really turning a corner last year, but I'm scared to have him as the backup.

I like Walker!! AS the 3rd guy!!!

Not Walker's fault there....good throw, no reason not to catch that!

 

Sorry, I forgot I had paused my DVR for about 3 minutes!:headspin:

Agree.  That's what I was eluding to - if JB gets hurt.

Cincinnati's QB is pretty good. Just saying! 

The 3rd stringer for the Bears was pretty good as well.

Andrews sure does rack up some penalties.  Last week and this week.

I've got a feeling that play will be reviewed a lot this year.

Can we all agree that Venturi was mildly entertaining in the pre-season....his "chicken salad" comment was the highlight!

I would have no clue since I watch preseason games in coach mode

We might actually pull this off. The backups on defense looked pretty good.

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.

This basically his first opportunity. JoJo fumbled a couple in his first opportunity as well. He then had 3 more preseason games to recover. Hart will not have that opportunity.

It's petty and dumb that Kelly is benched for two games. For what? He sat on someone's couch for a couple minutes until getting hit with a vacuum cleaner hose and then he left. If he came and sat on my couch, I'd offer him a beer and snacks.

I find Venturi comical at times...but I'm not sure he intends to be!

Best part of the game, when the Colts take knee haha . That means a smell of victory. 

haha...true, but my highlight is seeing Campbell take off after catch.  Man, I lit up after I saw that.

The only thing I am missing is a play chart and notebook to make Scouting notes

Kelly hit him perfectly in stride on that play too.....we may see more of that in the regular season!

But hopefully that convinces him to address his problem.  You have to admit, it's not a good sign

Those kind of plays are going to help JB a ton.

It may not have been the most eventful game, but man we needed this win!

This season has me curious. Ballard has put together a good defense and O.Line + he hired a smart HC. He also did not trade Brissett which looks to be smart right now if Brissett plays well. We would've been really screwed had we traded Brissett thinking Luck was playing.

The police said his toxicology came back clean. He must have taken something that doesn't show up on a drug screen.

 

He needs a minder. Can they assign the water boy or Phillip Walker to babysit him?

Never know Walker would do what he does best throw picks and fumble the ball.

He also threatened to spray an entire bar with an assault rifle and fought with Police when they came. That is a terrorist threat. As serious as it gets. Sounds like one of those guys that shouldn't be drinking alcohol at all.

Got to watch the game tonight. Looked pretty good. A lot of guys who played tonight won't be here in a couple of days. I think Phillips made the team tonight. Tell did. Speed did. Skai Moore also. Did we even blitz on one play in the 4 preseason games-I don't think so. I'm going to say it again, Hentges stays over Travis. I know I'm a little more excited about Chad Kelly than most on here, I think this is Brissetts job he will really have to stink it up to lose the starting job. Kick off 10 days away.

Jo Jo had a good preaseason until the last game against the bengals where he would then fumble not one time not two times but 3 times.

I think cox and Ebron are the same so I think we do keep hale as a Doyle backup.

    • I get your point but I am sure Ballard agree's. JB even by my eye ball test doesn't suck. We are just used to Peyton and Luck. Ballard may draft a QB and to be honest I would be happy if he did but not in round 1. He may get a gem in round 2 or 3 or so.
    • I don't think either of us can say exactly how Ballard does, or does not, look at things. We know some basics though. We know both he and FR are stats guys, and Ballard has grown the analytics team since coming to Indy. We know one of Ballards core responsibilities is build a team that not only wins, but also one that fills seats and generates revenue. We also know he loves leadership and the "right guys".   I think we both agree that Ballard is a very smart guy. He knows everything about JB. He knows his flaws from college, he knows every stat that has been laid out by all of us here, plus probably a bunch more. He knows exactly what last year's team and players did, and the difference in their performance to date this year.   I agree that the FO didn't get to evaluate JB under perfect/ideal situations, but frankly that never happens. He's not going to give pure grace for injuries, and disregard that JB still has a big problem with missing wide open guys regardless of who they are. He sees it all, and a lot more. And I'm sure he knows sometimes you have to make a call without ideal input/evaluation.    I do think that Ballard will do what ever he does, and we'll likely never know all the past, current, and future variables he may weigh. I just know where I'd put my money.
    • I truly believe the front office and Reich do want him to succeed. They would love a guy with is character and leadership to pilot this franchise for the next 10+ years. Sadly, I think he has reached his ceiling and  I think the Colts org privately know it as well.
    • Yeah I had him at #4, I liked TY, Funchess, and Campbell better going into the season. I just put Pascal 4th because I love his work ethic and his hands are decent. I liked him better than Cain or Rogers hence the #4.
    • But my point is...even if he could build around an average QB...why should he? For starters, no GM is good enough to build a consistent Super Bowl team without a legit QB. Dorsey was pretty damn good in KC...and those teams were talented...yet they won 1 playoff game in 4-5 years.   If Ballard is truly a top 5 GM...then that's even more reason to shoot for a legit franchise QB...not settle on an average QB. A top 5 GM, a franchise QB and top tier coaching is the stuff of dynasties...or multiple rings in a 5-6 year span. Why you intentionally put yourself at a disadvantage in one area...when you have clear advantages in other areas? Just seems like you are robbing Peter to pay Paul.   I mean...is he going to just stop being a good GM or just stop adding talent to the roster because they used resources on a QB? I have always thought this "great roster vs. great QB" debate was a false choice (sort of like FA vs. the draft). Why not have both? Sure there are opportunity costs and financial logistics involved in finding and keeping a top tier QB...but a savvy GM as good as Ballard is purported to be...should be able to overcome that...especially early on in that QB's contract...and especially when he's sitting on $100M in cap space.   We all got a taste of what an improving Ballard team with a top tier QB could look like last year...that's the direction I want to see this team take.
