The Vikings defense was asleep today against the Packers, but then again it was a division game against Aaron Rodgers. If the Jags were able to disrupt us with a meager pass rush, I wonder what will h

Uh prediction start Adam Thielen in fantasy against the soft zone defense of the colts. 

Im expecting we'll get after Cousins.  He's not near as mobile as Minshew and I don't think we'll see as much of the moving pocket stuff.  People are complaining but we had 3 sacks on Minshew in a gam

Philip Rivers is 1-3 vs. the Vikings and all 3 loses have been by 17+ points. I expect the Viking pass rush to frustrate an immobile Rivers and force him into making mistakes. I don’t see the Colts zone defense giving Cousins much problem.  Take the Vikings plus the points...unfortunately.

Most of yall definitely didn't watch the Vikings game this sunday. Cousins had 3 completions in the first half and 2 of those were their first 2 plays of the game. He had 7 completions before going into the 4th quarter where he and the rest of the vikings got a bunch of garbage time stats. Their defense has been good in recent history but is a liability this season. This is a very winnable game. 

 

Colts 30 - Vikings 23

Cousins won’t have those kind of problems facing this zone crippled Colts defense though. He will probably look more like the second coming of Fran Tarkenton.

He won't have the same struggles but it definitely doesn't suggest he will light us up like the rest of this thread seems to believe. We lose 1 game after the most unorthodox offseason possibly ever and everybody loses their mind. Vikings had one of, if not the worst defenses last week. I feel good about our chances.

Well...every team faced an unorthodox offseason so that’s not unique to the Colts. Everyone had to face those challenges.  Also the Colts’ defensive woes with their zone coverage scheme is something that has continued across multiple seasons now.  So it’s not just about losing one game. There is a problem. 
 

Finally, getting lit up by Aaron frigin Rodgers is a whole lot different than getting exposed on defense by the likes of Minshew.  Colts defense looked worse in my opinion.

Heavy dose of Taylor and Hines. I think we control our destiny a little bit better this time around. Going to be tough but need to nail the game plan down and don’t fall behind early on.

    • That's true too. I believe Rivers would play for us one more year. It's a question of if he has fallen off by 2021 and if we want to start Eason or a possible high draft pick by then. Won't rule it out, I know he likes it here.
    • Don't rule out bringing Rivers back in 21'
    • Agree. With or without Luck...the WR moves have been bad. Aiken, Grant, Funchess, Cain, Fountain, Campbell and Pittman. I am not going to write off Campbell and certainly not Pittman...but that is a very meh group...and in 4 offseasons...it is also a concerning trend. Whether it's a deprioritization or just bad talent evaluation (that has led to passing on very good WRs to draft lesser WRs/players)...objectively...it needs to get (much) better.    The DE position has been similar...in regards to the draft. Fortunately, Ballard was shrewd in signing both Sheard and Houston. But 3 2nd round picks at DE...and the Colts have gotten little. How many teams can (potentially) whiff on 3 2nd round picks? If not for that great trade deal with the NYJ (and the first 3 picks of that 2018 draft)...I think the Ballard draft convo is a bit different.   But like you said...it's all about the QB if sustained success is the goal.
    • The WR position though greatly needed isnt very big for me.   I highly hope Ballard continues to build the trenches as he has done cause he has done wonderful doing that thus far.
    • Yes, slightly OT here but the #2 WR position has been a problem for the Colts for years.    Grigson tried to address it with Moncrief and Dorsett, and a series of FAs, none of which were very productive (at the time though, Avery was a slot and played with TY and Reggie, making a very good trio).   Ballard has tried to address it with Campbell and Pittman, but his quantity of other tries did not emerge or had setbacks like Funchess.   You could say that since Reggie got hurt, the most reliable and consistent second option behind TY was Ebron......for one year.    That's pretty pathetic.
