Colts home opener.  Colts and Vikings will both be 0-1 next Sunday.  Avoiding a losing streak is on the line, and 1-1 looks a lot better than 0-2.  Important game.

 

We obviously need to do better than we did today from top-to-bottom.  Coaching, offense, defense, special teams, everyone needs to step up next Sunday.  Especially after losing our RB1, when our running game was supposed to be our biggest strength.


Vikings D got carved up by Rodgers for 364 yds and 4 TDs, so hopefully Rivers has a better showing than today.  He threw for 363 yds against the Jags, just gotta be smart with the football.  The Vikes also gave up 150+ rush yds, so hopefully our running game can have a better showing than today (only 88 yds).

 

Packers owned TOP against the Vikings 41:16 to 18:44.  That's encouraging for us.

 

Maybe Rhodes steps up for a revenge game against his old team?

I would not be surprised. How did he play today? I think Vike fans wish they had him today. The CBs did very poorly according to fans. (I live out of market; so I could not see the game.)

 

Let's see what happens next week.

 

(Good post, btw.) :)

He had a blown coverage on their game winning TD. I am hoping he gets use to this D since no Preseason

Me too.

 

I figured there might be a transition period since he's used to playing man.

 

Heck, the game today might convince Eberflus to play some more man, which Rhodes might be more natural at.  We'll see.

I wish we would, we have some guys who can in Rock and Rhodes and even Moore at his height. The biggest issues is our zone isnt always paying attention like we had that TD catch but they ran that early and we got lucky that someone noticed

 

 

If not zone, at least some jam, knock them off at the line, our guys have speed to get fixed

If it gives the pass rush an extra half-second to get to the QB, even better.

 

Need more disruption from the DLine.

 

We're not going to have the usual home-field advantage when our D is on the field Sunday.  :(

Ya, they need to do better. Get to the QB and bring him down. Buckner hopefully shows more next week and it was just getting use to new team.

 

Also, what was that blindside block call on Doyle? Like when did it become illegal to take out a guys leg on the line when he isnt engaged?

Until TY Drops Hilton stops choking we won’t win more than 4 games 

Today was a total team failure.  While I agree TY was part of that he was far from the only who needs to take blame today.  Hopefully watching the tape gets them good and mad and they take it out on the Vikings next week.

    • Just for some perspective, here are the first four years' picks from Hall Of Fame GM Bill Polian.  Not every pick is a home run.  Even for the best GM's.   1998 Draft 1/1 QB Peyton Manning - hall of fame, multiple pro bowls 2/32 WR Jerome Pathon - meh, didn't last long 3/71 WR E. G. Green - better than meh, but nothing to shout about 4/93 G Steve McKinney - didn't last, injury issues i think 5/135 LB Antony Jordan - meh 7/190 G Aaron Taylor - nada 7/231 DB Corey Gaines - nada 1999 Draft 1/4 RB Edgerrin James - hall of fame, multiple pro bowls 2/36 LB Mike Peterson - pretty good, left via free agency 3/63 G Brandon Burlesworth - backup, meh 4/96 CB Paul Miranda - meh 5/139 DE Brad Scioli - started some games, but not amazing 7/210 P Hunter Smith - long time punter 7/250 LB Corey Terry - meh 2000 Draft 1/28 LB Rob Morris - multiple year starter, but did not fit into scheme 2/59 LB Marcus Washington - pro bowl one year, but did not last long 3/91 CB David Macklin - high hopes, but had injuries 4/122 DT Josh Williams - meh 5/138 C Matt Johnson - super meh 7/235 DT Rob Renes - meh 7/238 CB Rodregis Brooks - backup and meh 2001 Draft 1/30 WR Reggie Wayne - multiple pro bowls, potential hall of fame 2/37 S Idrees Bashir - multiple year starter 3/91 S Corey Bird - backup 4/118 T Ryan Diem - multiple year starter 5/152 CB Raymond Walls - meh 6/193 S Jason Doering - meh 7/220 G Rick DeMulling - started some games, but not memorable   Three absolute strikes.  Eight good players.  Obviously a better record than CB's first four years.  But CB isn't doing too badly by comparison.
    • I just saw a young person through a cancer scare like this.  I can tell you that dealing with it becomes exponentially harder the more people who know about it.   He's very * and now all of this is public and that is difficult   Sending positive thoughts to him and his family.  Things like this... there are not words for how difficult this is
    • As much as I hate to say it, 2 maybe three weeks will just about finish the colts. I believe they should look ahead and plan for the future. Rivers is a better than average QB in my book. I would not get rid of him for a couple of years. But you have to see what you have before that time comes. I only use Kelly as an example of waisted time. why not suit up Eason and let him run short yardage situations? He is cheaper and he needs the experience.
    • Yeah...these debates tend to devolve into strawman arguments and false choices. There's nothing wrong with objectively looking at the picks...and lamenting misses.    The first two rounds of the 2019 draft were not good. Passing on Sweat to trade back...and then passing on Brown and Metcalf...3x (if you include the tradeback from #40 to #44). I think it implies they had Rock and  Banogu atop their boards. From what I read...they were even considering Rock at #27. So I think we can judge those evaluations (up to this point).   Getting the #34 pick out of that trade back was nice...but Pittman is going to have to be a Pro Bowler for that trade-back to not be a bad move IMO.
    • I thought this was a 7-9 team so they are exceeding expectations. I’m very happy with the teams performance so far.
