Training camp is one of my favorite times of year. I love hearing about the players and seeing the videos and constantly refreshing the thread to see the tweets of the training camp. The hype rising of certain players, reading every play breakdown, hearing whose beating who in drills, which players are really shining from the fans perspective. Then going to the training camps, seeing the players up close and being able to have my own opinion on players and how they are coming along as far as development goes, seeing all the players the media has very little coverage of. I am missing it really bad this year. I would get more hyped for it then the opening day of the season and it kept me occupied for a couple weeks. Not being able to see one of the most competitive teams this franchise has had in awhile really sucks. It kinda reminds me of the year my family kinda skipped Christmas lol. I wish they would throw us a bone with more videos or even let the colts writers watch the practice from a far and tweet out giving us updates.

Agreed. This has been the strangest off season yet... no updates, no stories, hardly any threads. 

No stories?

 

The website has been jammed packed with stories for the better part of 3 weeks, maybe longer.   2-3 new stories a day typically done by positional breakdown.  They’ve been hiding in plain site, on the front page of the website, a place most posters don’t seem to visit.


Honestly, there is very little traffic on the website.  Most fans are not visiting here very much, if at all.   So these stories on the front image are getting almost no notice here.

Chris Ballard, Reich, Sirriani, and Eberflus all did interviews this week. They are all up on the colts AP. We should get more as  TC heats up and the media is able to watch TC. So far no colt veterans have tested positive.

You know, that really is my fault for not clarifying the story part. I meant hardly anyone discusses the stories and articles on here. 
 

But, lives are busy and I wonder if most members are just taking time off with no games at the moment.

Not sure how busy people are?   No way to know.   In any other year the website is typically jammed as posters show up to learn what is going on with their favorite team.   
 

I suspect the virus has driven away most of the fans.   They fear getting their hopes up for a fun season, only to have those hopes dashed if/when the season gets canceled due to the virus.   

I appreciate your response.   Thanks.

 

It’s a strange world we’re living in...

NCF is right . You have to visit other sites than just the fans forums. 

I understand we don't have the normal coverage of the media around but there are other sites for information. 

There is a specific training camp site.

My mistake, I do visit other sites for information, I was just agreeing that the site has a lot less folk around the site these days. 
 

I really miss @TKnight24’s training camp update thread. 

 

I’ll usually do a google search on the team to see headlines and stories, thanks for the info about training camp though!

    • If that ever happened, you'd either be the smartest coach since Lombardi, or run out of town on a rail, depending on how things turn out.   You know, realistically, that would never happen though.  As we saw last season, no matter how bad JB looked, they wouldn't put Kelly in.  Even when the game was meaningless.  (Unless they purposely wanted to tank that JAX game.  In that case, it worked well).  But overall, coaches are conservative and will go with an experienced player unless that rookie is wowing people in practice.  It even took a year with Mahomes on the bench, right?   I think we know why they put Swag on the PS instead of Eason.  Very small chance anyone is going to claim him.  Whereas, someone would take a chance on a free 4th rounder with potential.
    • Besides the fact that Brissett is the veteran who knows the playbook and has a years worth of starting experience and can step in easily in case Rivers gets hurt there is one other thing.  It's only the 3rd game of the season.  We have already seen a number of QB's get hurt and are already missing starts.  There is plenty of time for more QB injuries to happen and to contending teams.  Each game that passes his cap hit goes down.  I don't know when the trade deadline is but at that time his cap hit might be affordable to a lot of teams especially if there is a QB injury to a contending team.  Letting him play in the 4th QTR is good for us and allows teams to see him play as well.  Who's to say Big Ben doesn't get hurt again or some other veteran QB on a contender.  So we let him play for us just in case and for other teams as well.  Once the trade deadline passes our situation could change.  Maybe Eason starts getting some reps.   I have already seen BR's list of players most likely to be traded before the deadline and he is on it and in the top 10.  To me it makes sense to play him in the 4th QTR if possible at least until the deadline passes.  Then it depends on where we are in the race and what will be our strategy going forward with a QB that will not be with us next year.  Just a different thought on the topic.  
    • The quarterback you mentioned were all taken very high, and if you look around the league yes nowadays in the NFL when your drafted high your going to play soon, unless your Jordan Love in GB  .    Eason was taken in the 4th round, nobody knows if he is going to be are guy. Mahomes' and Wilson's late round quarterback studs don't just fall from the sky its VERY rare.   Also what if Rivers get hurt, Eason could very well not even be close to ready to NFL action. We know what we will get with Jacoby, a season could be salvaged with him.   Lastly how do you even know JB is on his way out. What if Rivers retires this year, your ready to put all the marbles on an unproven 4th round project quarterback? JB could have a furture with this team yet.
    • He's simply an APB. Running him power/man blocking on goal line is epic dumb. I don't mind an occasional between the Ts run to keep Ds honest when he's in, but not in short or goal line. He should be primary zone read blocking, and edge when he runs. A few power/man up the gut when teams are in deep zone is fine too.
