We're on to Minnesota


Recommended Posts

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.

    • I had a bit of time (Not often)    Lets start with this for OUR FAs (estimated cap hit) Hilton 5  Houston 6 Rhodes 5 Carrie 2 Pascal 4 Trey  Burton - 2 Mo - 3 Muhammid - 3 Odum - 3   All other FA we let go   This rolls up to 34-35M   We might be able to shave off a bit from this total, (I went a little high) but probably not much.   Going into the FA / Draft we would all agree that we need to come out with a QB and LT that can play THIS YEAR   If we stay pat at 21, I believe that we could get a starter at LT.  This draft seems to have a nice group of tackles.    The QBs available to us at 21 just arent going to be ready to play this year, and maybe not ever. (50% of first round QBs wash out)   If we traded our 2nd round and next year 1st to Detroit for Stafford  - He would cost us around 20M   20+35 = 55M - We have a 65 M to spend   That leaves us 10M and we will need more than half of that to sign our rookies and have some emergency money for FA during the season   The one good thing..... we start with a 'large' cap compared to other teams.....  they have these same problems with less to start with, which should make some bargains be available     We better draft well            
    • Trade a conditional 2nd rounder for Darnold (start with 3rd and becomes 2nd once he becomes starter and starts for 8 games or something like that) and get it over with as soon as the Jets pick a QB.  1st rounder for Darnold, the Jets are not going to get that with any team. Since our 2nd rounder is later, I would be fine to give them our 2nd rounder straight up, now that I think about it.   Stafford, while he might be the best fit for the next few years, will not come easy. The Lions, if they play hard ball and ask for our first rounder and a future 2nd rounder, would you be fine with that? Carson Palmer is the only one I can think of that got traded that late in his career. In October of 2011, the Bengals traded the "retired" Palmer to the Raiders for a first-round pick in 2012 and a second rounder in 2013. I am thinking that will be the exact comparison the Lions will use, the more and more I think about it.
    • look I've a colts fan since I been 8 years old, I'm now 65 and maybe have another 20 years to wait for another SB ring. Get it done now. Come on now, 2 SB bowls wins in 57 years blows.  
    • Confused,   get Watson from texans. trade brisett and eason  and a pick or two from draft for him and whatever the hell else they want. then pick up a backup qb from the junk pile when they are all released before the season starts.   3  very good runners in the backfield. throw the ball when we cant run.  hope this helps. Maybe not a good idea, maybe a good idea.  We are paying 2 qbs sitting on a bench watching someone play. we should not even need a qb if either brisset or eason was any good ? stop screwing around and get rid of them.     
    • I wonder if they donate if their team loses that game.
