I told the majority of people here not to overlook the Jaguars despite everyone saying they are going to tank.

 

The majority of yall expected a blowout today and I didn't. 

 

I am sad at this performance but I also know it is just Week 1 so keep your head up.

Some of you are hilarious giving up after 1 week.   It is just Week 1 folks 

Don't be too mad. Lots of teams lost today not just Colts   

I told the majority of people here not to overlook the Jaguars despite everyone saying they are going to tank.   The majority of yall expected a blowout today and I didn't.    I am

I thought Rivers played OK.  Honestly I take a lot of the blame for what happened tonight and place it on the D.  The whole reason the Jags were supposed to be pushivers this year is because their offense isn't good.  And yet our D couldn't contain that offense.  Clearly we have some issues there to deal with

 

I also kind of expected this offense to have difficulties finishing drives because we've got so many young wideouts.  It's a fact that experience pays off in the red zone and lack of it can bite you just as hard.  Also losing Mack hurt us a LOT.

 

The killer is that late game interception by Rivers.  This is literally the worst thing Rivers can do to us and he's already done it once only game he's played for us.  That's worth keeping an eye on.  Other than that he played OK given the state of the team.  We ARE very young on offense.  We DID lose our star RB.  It is explainable what happened to Rivers in this game and it's reasonable to hope it won't repeat.

 

But bottom line for me, if we can't stop the Jags on defense, this could be a long year.

Rivers looks like a rookie out there. Lots of yards, but critical mistakes in critical situations.... 

Is it Rivers that looks ike a rookie or is it the rookie-heavy WR group that looks like rookies?

 

This should have been expected.  We are very, very green in the receiver room, and that's going to put more pressure on Rivers than would otherwise be there.  Especially when the running game evaporates.

I hope the Jags win 5 or more games.

Honestly just terrible everything really I mean rivers did get throw for a good deal of yards but mr noodle threw 2 ints, Reich should have not left running the ball seems time and game management was not good since he left the run game, I could go on and on

Hard not to leave off running the ball when the guy who's best at running the ball is in the room with an undisclosed lower body injury.

I saw T.Y Hilton choke back to back possessions with the game on the line. It’s not just the rookies at receivers

The running game didn't evaporate, we just stopped running, the screens were eating them up, we stopped, we were running well, and we stopped. Why do we stop doing whats working?

Defense was atrocious today and take primary responsibility for that loss. Rivers mistakes, discipline and kicker played their part but this one is mostly on the defense.

 

No turnovers, busted coverages and no tight coverage. What was Minshew 19/20 for a lot of that game. It's the same defense we saw in the second half of last season. 

 

Terrible loss.

Rivers is Rivers and I'd suggest that some of you take that reality check and realize he's been a choke artist for most of his career. He put up ok numbers besides the picks but he shouldn't be throwing the ball 40+ times if we want to win. That's probably changing next week.

 

The defense was uninspired today, which is a norm for the first week in Indy. Our uninspired defense early in the season usually gets beat by the <insert mediocre Jags QB> . They gotta fix that soon, but they usually do.

I'm glad that the Jags fans think Minshew will amount to a franchise QB. Good luck there.

 

This is a typical Colts week 1 and Rivers will lead us to an 9-7 record and a 1st week playoff out if we are lucky. Horray!!

Yep... I was worried about the Defense all week. Proved that was a valid concern

I'd say it was Rivers that looked like a rookie 17 of his passes were check downs to RBs, he seemed more worried about his completion % then throwing some balls downfield because there were receivers open

Rivers has always loved throwing to his RBs. He does check down, but he isnt afraid to toss the ball in there as we gloriously got reminded of twice today.

Welp. I was completely wrong. We looked god awful out there. Both lines were out of sync, and now Mack is done for the season. 
 

So much for hoping to finally break our streak of losing week 1. Suddenly we look more like a team in the Lawrence sweepstakes than a team in contention. 
 

Lots and lots of work to do. Just like the Reds, we were overhyped to start the season.

Rivers excuses coming in 5-4-3-2-1. But everyone knows where I stand with $25M to Rivers. But he fits a "system", but I guess every other team doesn't accommodate talented players and do what their best player does well. (i.e. Ravens, Pats, Chiefs).

You were right.  I was on my way in here to tell you that.  In no way did I expect that but apparently you did.  Now, can you kindly give me the winning Powerball numbers for Wednesday?

 

BTW, kinda tough to NOT be pessimistic about the rest of the season right now.

Week 1 with no preseason and we out gained opponent by 200 yards, typically teams with that much more yardage win most every time. This week already teams with many more yards have lost from Philly to Carolina to Detroit.   Rivers played smart most the game and showed zip, if the O line creating more push could have run more and easier.

They look better than the Jets at least lol.  I don't think the Jags will be in the Trevor Lawrence Sweepstakes.

Always seems to be the low post count people that are the most vocal negatively.

But where were we last year when the Colts lost to the Chargers by 3 points? Fire JB! this year we lost to a talentless Jags as opposed to last year's team. Without Leonard Fornette, Calais Campbell, AJ Bouye, and Dede Westbrook? I guess the more post counts the more accurate?

    • Keep in mind Leno was a 7th round pick in 2014 but didn't start full time till 2016. He signed an modest extension in 2017, but then made the Pro Bowl in 2018. Had a bit of a down year in 2019, but rebounded for a good year in 2020. He graded better than AC. IMO, he's the best and healthiest option left of the FA OTs. He hasn't hit 30 yet. Fisher is injured and 30. Okung is 33. Given he's the youngest, healthiest, and rates over 70, he'll be in higher demand, as there are still several teams looking for a LT. If he wanted 9M a year for 2 years, I'd take that in a heartbeat. I just doubt he'll be OK with that.    Keep in mind the Bears pretty much had to cut him as they couldn't afford to keep him. They were negative cap. It's why they drafted Jenkins. And Denver, who is one of the few teams to have more cap space than Indy, is highly interested in Leno.   Fisher coming off that injury is a big dice roll. That will impact his market value. Healing at 30 years old is tough for some guys, especially big uglies.   I don't see Leno taking less than 3 year / 30M. I don't see Fisher taking a one year deal at all. Worst thing he could do is do a one year after an injury, look meh this year, and he's done. He'll want 2-3 and some guarantees. He'll take less per year, but he'll want some security.  The team will have most leverage with Okung in terms of $ and duration.
    • The Paye pick makes a lot of sense but the Dayo pick surprised me. I wanted a left tackle and thought that there were a couple of guys who would have made a lot of sense.   Ballard and co know way more about those players than I do, however, so I'll continue to trust their judgement until they demonstrate that I shouldn't.    I'd rather have two good pass rushers than one good pass rusher and one bad left tackle.
    • I like the breakdown and agree although i caveat with this:   I don't think Leno or Fisher was 2-3 year deals unless they get what their market is before being cut.   And I do not think CB is going to big against himself to do that.   Leno basically made $8M-$9M each year ($8.8, $5.0, $8.1, $8.1) and was slated to make $9.0M this year before cut.   If the Colts are going to offer him $8-$9M a year I think he would gladly take a 2-3 year deal. But if the Colts are bargain shopping then I think he and Fisher will both be happy to take 1 year deals and prove their worth and re-enter the market next year when there is a lot more money to go around.   Fisher probably won't go for a 2-3 year deal unless he is making $10M+    I would actually ideally like to see us give one of them a 2-3 year deal where we have cost control on a decent contract for a year or two beyond this one.   I think that is a big win if so. More likely scenario has us giving one of them a $6M-$8M deal for a year and then having to either try to extend them if it works out or let them walk if it doesn't. 
    • Best option if healthy - Fisher (will still likely want 2-3 years)   Safest option - Leno (likely wants 3 years min)   Most expensive option - Leno   Cheapest short term option with a level of safety - Okung (PFF predicts a 3 year deal, which I don't see).   IMO, if you don't grab one of those guys, or other quality FA, you'll end up starting Tevi. If you start Tevi, before long you're moving Nelson to LT.... Ballard likely doesn't want to give Leno 3-4 years and high dollars. FIsher comes with risk. IDK... 
    • Here's what PFF says, and how they rank them in terms of FAs available.   In short, Houston had the worst pass rush graded year of his career, but still was top 10 in pass rush win rate. Kerrigan on the other had a career worst year all around, was really lousy vs the run, while many expected a bump up in production per snap due to the reduced role.   If Houston would take a one year deal, I'd rather give him 10M than give Kerrigan 5M.     Don't forget we lost 2 (Autry and Houston) and added 3 (Paye, Dayo, Rochell). So even if Dayo takes longer, we're still even net/net with the addition of Rochell.    I agree he could start over Banogu. As long as Turay is deemed healthy enough to play, he'd be a better passing downs rusher than Kerrigan. Kerrigan wouldn't play on running downs at all for us. He'd be a rotational or depth pass rush specialist at best.
