Comfortable with Roster?

How can you complain about route combinations if you don't know what they were?

Easy because  whatever  they were they simply  are not working. Cain, Campbell,  and Rogers  are invisible running  the route combos. Heck Hilton  and pascal to. When the only guy that could get open is jack doyle you need better  route combinations or wrs

I agree with the comments on us needing DL/DT help, as well as CB help. But I am surprised that no one (so far?) has mentioned OLine depth. 

 

When we are "one injury away" from DLine mediocrity, couldn't the same be said about our OLine? They looked pretty ordinary against Denver this weekend, to my eyes at least...

I still don’t understand not using Campbell more.  They were without their slot. We need to get more quick passes.

Campbell is hurt.   He recently had surgery on his abdomen.  

 

He’s not hurt badly enough to be in the IR.   But it’s cut deeply into his playing time.

So was/is Quincy trade bait? If not, is he in the doghouse?


Probably a little of both.

 

We’ll know more if he’s still on the roster after tomorrow’s trade deadline.

 

And we’ll know even more if Wilson is still on the team but not active again next week.

Even before getting hurt, he's been a ghost, with a catch or two here and there

We should never be "comfortable." I'm positive that Chris Ballard isn't and won't ever be. Comfortable equals complacency, and that's where teams regress. We know where the weaknesses are. If anything, we should take comfort in knowing this roster is light years ahead of those in years past, and with a competent coaching staff, is dangerous. I take comfort in that, knowing we won't be on the losing side of many blowouts (if any at all) anymore. This team is made to compete in every game, and is only going to get better as it matures... and to the point of the post, as Ballard and co. continues to fill holes and improve. 

great post

 I can't say that i know that our backups couldn't be as decent as anyone else's backups.
 That said, Fangio knew how to attack our blocking schemes. I think we look predictable. With that, Kelly and Glow are to often not winning their battles in the run game or pass blocking. JMO of course.

lol picking up their replacements at this time.

I believe he had a different injury (hamstring?) also, in addition to the abdomen.    That was earlier.  That set him back as well.

In response to the OP, yes I am for THIS year.  But I don't think this is a Superbowl year for the Colts.  Could be, but I don't think they are better than the Pats.  So for THIS year, I'm comfortable with it.  If they were that close, then yeah you go get that one player you feel will put you over the top.  Perhaps next season will be that year, but not 2019.

Well, based on our zero participation at the trade deadline, I would say we are all happy with our current roster! Not one move, so we made a decision to stand strong and let this youthful group take us to the heights of their capabilities! Ballard’s plan is to continue to build through the draft and I am all for it. Go Blue!!

If Luck where playing we would not have to worry about those missed field goals 

And they would have gone for two every time and never missed if Luck was QB.  Luck quit. Move on.  He wouldn't have played any better than Jacoby did against SD.  Was Luck going to throw the ball to himself against Oakland?  Not sure how else he could have kept Ebron and Co. from dropping so many passes.  Luck was going to play CB vs Denver too and not have any holding or PI calls against him.

You really think that Luck would not have played any better then Coby against SD he would have put up 40 and covered Vinateri butt. I have moved on from Luck and like Coby but he doe's not put the fear into defenses like Luck did there is no comparison

I don't remember Luck ever hanging 40 on San Diego.... In fact, Luck led Colts teams only scored 40 or more 5 times in his entire career.  Playoffs included... So stating he'd have led the team to 40 no problem is I hope hyperbolic on your part, but it comes across completely ridiculous nonetheless

Yes he had some great offensive lines when the great Pagano and Grigson where running the team. With this Oline no problem he gets 40 :thmup:

I'm not comfortable with the current roster. I don't think it's good enough to get us very far. We should have traded for a  DT or Cb..... Maybe even another wr.

Doesn't  matter. Ballard made zero moves so he must love the fact our wrs did nothing  most the game versus the Broncos. They must have alot of faith in the injured funchess.

    • To actually answer this...if he stays healthy...   63% completion rate, 3,900 - 4,100 yards, 24 TDs, 12 INTs, 91 Passer Rating, 59 QBR
    • It's an interesting thought exercise. But I really think that condition exists because of the injury history. As long as Wentz is healthy, I couldn't even imagine how they would spin the optics of benching him prior to reaching that threshold. They certainly didn't bench JB when it was clear he wasn't able to get the job done. The reason was because he gave them their best chance to win (or so they said).   And unless they get a legit backup QB...that's definitely going to be the case with Wenz.   What message does that send to the locker room and fanbase other than "we care more about a 1st round draft picks than we do about Carson Wentz and about winning." I can't imagine that going over well in the locker room...especially if these guys are truly bonding.   And if Wentz somehow doesn't give them the best chance to win at that point...then they would have major egg on their faces for even making that trade.  
    • That's weird comment...   Anyway, given all are healthy the 5th or 6th guy better be good on STs because he's not going to get a lot of reps in a game.  Heck Patmon hardly put on his uniform last year.  He looks the part but so do a lot of others that have come and gone.
    • I before E except after C 
    • Alright, here it goes. These trades will be close enough but not perfect, let me preface them.     Trade 1: Colts trade No.21 to Ravens for No.27 and No.104 (their 3rd round compensatory pick) and No.171 (their 5th round pick) Trade 2: Colts then trade No.27 to Falcons (they move back into Round 1) for pick No.35, their 4th rounder (pick No.108) and their 5th rounder (pick No.148)   Colts 1st pick: Round 2 Pick No.35 - Payton Turner, DE, Houston 6'5", 270 lbs - strong, good natural bend and agility for his size, fits our D to a tee. Some might say this might be a reach but they said that about Leonard too, and a very good system fit is worth half a round or round early, IMO   Colts 2nd pick: Round 2 Pick No.54 - Spencer Brown, OT, Northern Iowa, 6'8", 311 lbs (lots of Jared Veldheer comparisons, very good athlete much like Braden Smith) - very quick on his feet, should be able to definitely transition to LT, I think he is a better prospect and athlete than Dillon Radunz at this stage of the draft, with longer arms and larger hands, IMO.   Colts 3rd pick: Round 3 Pick No.104 - Jabril Cox, LB, LSU, 6'3", 232 lbs - his athleticism will improve our LB corps and he has good arm length as well that Ballard covets, very good instincts and explosive with good cover talent   Colts 4th pick: Round 4 Pick No.108 -  Tamorrion Terry, WR, Florida State, 6'3", 207 lbs - has good speed, route running needs work which is why he will be available here, can be used like Alshon Jeffery for the big X WR/big body for slants for Reich's system while also sneaking past DBs for the occasional surprise home run hit   Colts 5th pick: Round 4 Pick No.127 - Hunter Long, TE, Boston College, 6'5", 254 lbs - body type is very close to Dallas Goedert and he will be our Burton replacement, receiving TE that is a mismatch for safeties and LBs   Colts 6th pick: Round 5 Pick No.148 - Benjamin St. Juste, CB, Minnesota, 6'0", 202 lbs - I am on the group consensus that Ballard will be drafting only for depth at cornerback unless some great value screams at him; and this is the kind of developmental prospect that fits what they like in CBs that is long that I expect the Colts to draft and develop.   Colts 7th pick: Round 5 Pick No.165 - Jonathan Marshall, DT, Arkansas, 6'3", 310 lbs - Very quick and disruptive athletic DT that is suited to play 3-technique on the inside.   Colts 8th pick: Round 5 Pick No.171 - Darrick Forrest, S, Cincinnati, 6'0", 206 lbs - excellent special teamer, definitely a box safety and has played a lot of big nickel for Cincinnati, compares to George Odum     Colts 9th pick: Round 6 Pick No.206 - Jamie Newman, QB, Wake Forest, 6'3", 234 lbs - might be a later round Jacoby Brissett all over but should help with occasional usage of RPOs and QB sneaks by the goal line   Colts 10th pick: Round 7 Pick No.248 - Chauncey Golston, DE, Iowa, 6'5", 269 lbs - long armed developmental prospect who actually played well lining up inside at Senior Bowl, might work good in certain sub packages     Alright now, crucify me.
