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.

Don't you know, this is the forum's normal reaction after a loss?

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?

    • I've had a chance to talk Jim Irsay and he is a great guy who just wants to win in the worst way. 
    • I don't give grades yet ask me in two years and then I'll give a grade.  Ask me on May, 6th 2023
    • How about none of the options and we roll with Tevi this year.  The Colts have three big name players (Leonard, Smith, and Nelson) that will need to be resigned which doesn't leave us much cap space available next year so don't expect much movement again in free agency in 2022.   After locking down the big three TE MAC and RB Hines are top priorities imo.    Next off-season I would look at the Vikings RT Brian O'Neill and offer him something very similar to what Braden Smith should get 4yr/60m w/30m guaranteed.  O'Neill I expect to get an offer for 4yr/64m (16m APY) with 30m guaranteed.  O'Neill was a very good LT coming out of Pittsburgh and has proven himself in the NFL at RT.  The Vikings had one of the worst OL last season and took Darrisaw as LT in the draft but also appear to be in potential cap troubles next off-season.  
    • Here may be the future issue complicating signing additional Free Agents to sem-big contracts is that we still have to sign Leonard, Smith, and Nelson to big contracts and will be in similar off-season situation again with available cap space.  Have to figure the Colts will want to resign MAC, Muhammad, Mack if he stay healthy and Hines.  Glowinski might be a wild card to resign at RG and so far haven't really found a solid RG replacement for next year if we do let him walk.    The Colts would be wise to keep what we have now for defensive lineman and save the cap space with consideration of signing the Vikings RT Brian O'Neill next year.  According to early estimates the Vikings are going to be hurting for cap space next off-season and O'Neill might price himself out of Minnesota.  Now I was very high on O'Neill coming out of Pittsburgh college and regarded him as one of the better left tackles available at the time.  Like Smith he has proved himself at RT.  The Colts could acquire O'Neill with a few options of either letting Glowinski go and moving Smith back to his original college position of RG and letting O'Neill play RT.  The other option is keeping Glowinski at RG and Smith at RT while moving O'Neill to LT but estimates leaves us around $7 million in cap space without signing other big future FA names of Hilton, Rhodes, and Pascal.  Any ways have a feeling next year's FA is going to look a lot like this year with little additions due to limited cap space.
