Next week I think Jacoby starts as does Desir.  Funchess comes off IR.  We also have a new kicker.  Three division foes in a row coming up.  Time to quit messing around and right the ship. 

aint gonna happen with Hoyer or Brissett.

I dont even know what to believe when it comes to favorites.  We beat KC and Houston then lose to a bunch of scrubs and The Bearded One.  Throw a dart, read some possum organs, or shake a magic 8 ball, all are going to be just as good at predicting our tachycardia-inducing performance.

Is Funchess coming back, though? I didn't hear anything about him practicing yet and that would be a bad sign.

Funchess is a ghost. All the preseason chatter about him seems funny now. Even if he comes back this season I imagine it will take the rest of the year to start to get back to his old average self. 

Ballard can't draft or sign wide receivers to save his life.

Really? Funch had a freak injury. Are you really going to blame him for that? It sounds like you are, but that can't be because that would be ridiculously dumb.

 

Perhaps, you just hated the signing from the get-go and now you can use this injury as justification...

Fitzmagic was too much for us.

Hoenstly though, let’s look at this:

-Hoyer is garbage, but Brisset will likely play

-Our top two WR yesterday were Zach Pascal and Chester Rogers

-The D played well most of the game

-Our OL was much better than against Pitt

-We still haven’t lost a division game (knocks furiously on wood)

-We still have 5 wins, and could finish the year 12-4

-The AFC is weak

Now, are those excuses for yesterday? No, we still played like crap.

But we have reason for optimism, and I think things will get better.

Let’s go out there these next three weeks and punch Jax, Hou, and Ten right in their mouths and claim back the South!

Go Colts!!!

(Also, would it really be a Colts football season if we didn’t lose at least one game against a garbage team?)

Also another big one. Willis has replaced Gaethers as the starter.  Yeah!  Hard to believe it took that long.

I don't think you can say the offensive line played better, rather they played a defense/dline that is pathetic.

 

If they had played better we would have avg more than 3.8 ypc against the worst run def in the league and Hoyer wouldn't have been hit the face multiple times.

My wife and I are going to the Jags game. I hope Brissett is back which I'm thinking he probably will be after watching the terrible Hoyer show. We're going to bring some good juju as we've never witnessed a loss in person at Lucas Oil stadium so far. Fingers crossed. lol

Going to need the defense to play big this game. Don’t trust the offense against good defenses. Where is Malik Hooker? He hasn’t made any impact plays since the Chargers game. 

 

Since returning from injury, Hooker has probably played the best run defense of his career. They've been using him in the box a lot and he has flashed on my screen multiple times. I've noted it because I was shocked to see Hooker making a tackle in the backfield or taking on a block, etc.

To be fair injuries  have crippled  us. Hilton is the offense  still.

Why? We are basically playing preseason football. Getting healthy and looking at younger guys for next year. We cant stay healthy. Why are we favored? It seems all our guys have to be on 2000% health to play

The word you seek is "coddling."

Chargers, Raiders, Steelers, Dolphins...all four losses have been against garbage teams, and that's a huge problem

Let's hope neither develop a hangnail or are bitten by a mosquito.  They'd be week to week.

 

:lol:

I absolutely to compare injuries because I'm not a doctor, I don't know anybody else's pain tolerance....

 

But I'm going to today.

 

Pat Mahomes knee wasn't in place 3 weeks ago.

Julian (I get cracked every game and show up on the injury list but never actually miss a game) Edelman has been injured for like 3 years

I know concussion protocol is league wide. but how in the f did Josh allen get smoked on the field.. was out cold. exits the game and passes to play the next week.. Then we randomly hear about Leonard having a concussion and he's out a month?

 

I'm sorry, I'll probably get slammed for this post for "not knowing anything" but I'm just frustrated guys..

Yes because Funchess breaking his collarbone was completely his or Ballard’s fault

Funnily enough I’ll bet TY and Brisset both would just keep playing, I think the only thing holding them back is the medical staff and the coaching staff. They’ve both played through a lot of pain before

If Jacoby plays, we have a chance, like Jim Carey in "Dumb and Dumber" said.

 

Beating the Jaguars and Texans will make us forgive, not forget, the Steelers and Dolphins game mishaps. We play up and down to the competition anyways. :)
