I hope so, but don't think it will happen.   He's never been a high yardage kind of QB.   I think he is capable of some breakout games though.   

 

 You people crack me up.
 Never been a high yardage kind of QB.
 Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah
 hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
  Like he ever had the chance.
Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!

So we crack you up because we are not sure he can do what he has never done?   Now that is funny.

I'm excited to see what we will do next week against the Titans. I was cheering the Saints on last night and we are in the driver's seat to be in first place after 2 weeks. I don't think its a bad place to be all things considered. There were soooo many areas where we let the Chargers game get away. Poor tackling and poor coverage in the secondary stood out just as much as the missed 7 pts. Missing that call on the fg cost us another 4 pts, but without a time machine these are all moot points. We just have to regroup and take care of the Titans. Brissett appears capable of handling the load so far. He's surrounded by a much better team than his initial go around so I'm going to reserve judgement on how far or even if we're in qb purgatory. It wouldn't shock me at all to see us pull out the division. I don't see where Luck would've done much more than we got out of Brissett yesterday.

Remember when you criticize the D, that we were up against one of the best QBs in the league.  Rivers may be cursed in the playoffs but he definitely is an elite quarterback, you need to recognize that before evaluating how the D played against him

You know I do get that but they were missing their starting LT and they were missing the starting RB too. It’s all good and it’s all positive criticism. I’m not trashing them.

I don't think expecting your kicker to hit any of those 3 kicks is "out of whack".   

I don't think we should cut him.   I think we should keep an eye on him and not keep him for longer than we should just because he is Adam.  His FG% has gone down each of the past 5 years but it has still been decent (not this season of course).  

Hey there Myles, 

 

I get what your driving at. As a professional FG kicker who is well compensated, we as fans expect Adam V. to put the ball between the pipes every tine he is called upon to do so. A fair point. I just meant that when Adam does miss a FG; it turns into massive media coverage since he's not known for coming up short. 

 

I'm just not ready to throw in the towel on Adam after a week 1 loss that's all. He knows he under performed on Sunday. He's tougher on himself than any INDY fan is I'm sure. 

 

Is there a danger on retaining Adam too long resting on his past laurels of success? Maybe. Look, I'm all in favor of grooming the next place kicker to succeed Adam. It's a smart, proactive move. I just wanna see how Mr. V performs say the next 5 or 6 weeks first before I draw any conclusions that's all. 

 

Nice chatting with you as always Myles. :hat:

It seems we are in agreement with Adam.   I hope he gets it together and gives us another good season.   As far as that first game and the heat he took, I think it was mostly justified.  Had he just missed the 46 yarder, I don't think he would have caught any heat from the typical fan.   But adding a missed extra point and a missed 26 yarder made for some understandable concern.   

 

Let's beat the Titans and put that Chargers game behind us.

Go Colts!

    • I would strongly consider signing FA safety Eric Reid.   Than we need to see about focusing on LT, TEs, and DEs for next season.  Worse case may have to see how the Cardinals are using Kelvin Beachum and offer a trade if we end up losing AC early mid-trade season.  Other potential upcoming FA's may look more into would be TB Bucs WR Chris Godwin, TE Gerald Everett, and DE Trent Murphy.     I realized we just paid Kelly at center but oft-injured game-time availability has me wondering how our backup would do.  Am looking at Centers Daniel Kilgore (KC), Evan Brown (Browns) or Josh Andrews (Jets) as potential backup targets.    As for the 2021 draft my early LT target to keep an eye on is Jackson Carman from Clemson in Round 1.  Again I am high on S Hamsah Nasirildeen (Florida St) who went back to school but should still be a first rounder.  TE Pat Freiermuth (Penn St) has me intrigued.  As for DEs had Edge Patrick Jones II (Pitttsburgh) on my wish list in Round 2.  Hilton's age on the end of his career had me looking at WR Nico Collins (Michigan) in Round 3.  Collins has solid hands and no history of drops.
    • I’ve found my new favorite way to watch a game.  Really gives you an idea of what's happening.    You can see play design, who’s out of position, who missed a block, who fell down, even who’s pickin their nose or scratchin their butt. All 22 on the field so you miss nothing.   I especially like to see the blocking bubbles grow or collapse on the line.   I just cant say how much i’m gaining from this.  Each play is run twice...once from sideline (all 22), then from endzone (all 22).  Great to see the plays develop, or a defender fly across the field to a tackle.   No sound, so i will still watch normally first (or radio sometimes for drama), but if anyone never checked it out..... you must!  I cant believe i waited this long.  I have such a better idea of what we’re trying to do and who looks good or bad on EVERY play.   Also, i feel better about last week after watching for some odd reason.  I kept finding myself saying “oh, thats why that happened.”   The normal perspective is such a focused frame , usually on the ball.  We’re missing all the little battles going on in the periphery.
    • Well the misconception was the Jags were going to tank this season. No one told them that.  Your sky is falling opinion is way too pre mature. 
    • My questions are can he find the crack and what will he do mean the crack ain’t there.  Wisconsin doesn’t do cracks, they block chasms against the cornfield circuit.
    • Many die hard colt fans are sugar coating this loss as they want to believe so hard that this was a fluke or lol actually believing the Jags are a good team!  After the Jags just unloaded ALL their probowl talent, you think the roster is loaded?  If their loaded, what do you call this colts roster?  I think the Colts overlooked their opponent even know they haven't won there since a grip.
