Gonna be .500 if we’re lucky this year.  Defense has regressed so bad!  Last year was definitely a fluke.  Better than they used to be but still not good 

Seeing how bad Falcons are. I am thinking 6-10. 

 

Colts are really going need to think about a new QB too. Time to build

seriously though, why is our defense dog % year in year out. Last year gave me so much hope and I thought we were gonna build on it...

Well to be fair, most of us felt this defense was on the cusp. Most thought that Eberflus had exceptional ability to take this team to the next level and all the talent we added was going to get us there. I keep seeing the same defense we’ve had over the years when we all came out with excitement. Nobody has made a real play today on either side of the line. I suspect we chalk this game up as a learning experience. Quite honestly, I think this team has been managed soft with all the day offs, and all the preseason games off for the starters. It’s just questionable strategy for me. NE wasn’t sitting their starters and they’ve come out in mid season stride.

I'm just as mad as all of you. We look badly coached and our effort is not great. But once we have our guys back, we are a very competitive team. Our top two players are out on defense. Our only WR(lol) is out. It's not fun to watch, but at least the young bucks are learning. 

 

I'm more heated about our play calling. Run, Run, Pass down 14 with 1 min left in the 3rd Q? Maybe take some chances

Eh, almost every team stopped playing starters in preseason this year, so that's iffy.... And all what extra days off? Haven't heard about those?

    • Adonai Mitchell 1.1% drop rate. Wow!!! Ladd McConkey runs great routes.       Based on this, guys, Brian Thomas Jr. at #15, I will not complain whatsoever  
    • I accept this analysis as an upgrade to instant analysis that was a few days after the draft. There's a year of information to go off of now, and it's the first major step to knowing who is more or less likely to be a hit or a bust in the NFL. I acknowledged that a lot of our 2023 draft class had injury issues. However, that doesn't mean you can say they would be a hit if they weren't injured, it just means you don't know and their development is pushed down the line. For some, it could mean they hit next year, for others, it could mean Ballard drafts competition to battle them for their spot on the team.    Right now, it's a below average draft class with 1 year of sample size. That can change. It does depend a lot on how Richardson does. However, I will stick with what I said earlier that our draft classes seem to get injured more than any other team. It could be due to bad luck or the number of players we draft every year, or it could be due to Ballard avoiding injury concerns when drafting players. It seems to be a pattern.
    • Being from Jersey, very hard to believe the Jets didn't make the list. Their fan base is WASTED before they enter the stadium! And they leave by halftime to sober up to be able drive home! 
    • Let’s be real last years draft class is going to come down to how Richardson does.  You can’t give any kind of realistic grade when the guy who the whole draft class is going to be judged on only played five games and only finished one of them.  The Colts draft class last year grade is incomplete until we know more about Richardson.
    • I think he meant if Luck had returned in 2019, the Colts were poised to win it all which I don't agree with. I think they still needed quite a bit to win it all.
