I had coffee while I was cooking. And had another big Yeti mug with French Vanilla creamer after I ate. 

 

It was a very moving day.

The thing that i have been loving is we are no longer dependant on TY to have a good game on order to have an effective offense. Even when he has a bad game or two we are still walking up and down the field. Would like to cash in more 7s but overall im happy

That's exactly what I order + fish and cheese every time I go back to Indy. And have to have a large bag on onion chips.

 

With coffee.

The fish with cheese is good I agree with tarter too. The onion chips are great.

Can you imagine how good this offense, and team overall, would be if it's best receiver starts to actually catch passes laid right in his hands, uncontested?

 

OK, I know that's a somewhat sarcastic post, but honestly, just imagine what adding that one element to what they're already doing would do. YIKES!

Got to have tarter. I almost always pick up a bag when I hit Indy, and generally before I even get to my mother's house. I'm always hugging her hello with one arm, big bag of WCs in the other arm. If not, when I wake the next morning, first words out of my mom's mouth is "do you want Biscuits and Gravy for breakfast, I already know you want White Castles for lunch". 

 

I know, super unhealthy, but only have them twice a year tops. Haven't been back to Indy since the Covid... Need more WC to go with my cowbell.

Agree here.  I think we need TY to step up, especially with the uncertainty surrounding Campbell... but Rivers does a great job of spreading the ball around (as he has most of his career).  It felt like Jacoby was so reliant on TY and often stubbornly forced throws his way (either b/c we didn't have much other talent or b/c Brissett can't make his reads nearly as fast as Rivers can).

 

I, like the OP, was happy to see Rivers not throwing 46 times.  For 2 reasons, (1) Rivers is up there in years, he seems to still have a strong arm (as evidenced by the bomb to TY which TY dropped) but the wear and tear adds up more with old age and it seems like an alarming number of players have been getting hurt (which I think has to be at least in part, a result of lack of a full/normal off-season), and (2) we have a solid OL and we're skilled at RB even without Mack, the more we can play keep away from other teams and impose our will on other teams the better off we'll be (IMO).

Let's hope Rivers and TY get in sync with each other. We need TY, the young guys (at WR) can't carry this team.

 

I thought it was encouraging to see MAC have such a good game and to see Rivers continue to have faith in him after he was responsible for an INT early in the game.  I also thought Pittman played better as a WR in week 2 and expect him to continue to improve.  I hope TY gets his act together (he hasn't looked like himself either week) as he's definitely an asset to this team, but I think with Rivers' QB play (compared to Brissett) we are much less reliant on TY than we were last year.  I think if we can keep the ball for 38 min 25 sec, put up 150+ rushing yards and 200+ passing yards every week while limiting our turnovers, we'll be in good shape.  I would like to see us improve in the red zone, though -- yesterday we had 1 INT inside the red zone and 3 of 4 field goals were after we got the ball to the 20 or closer (the other we were on the 26).... it'd be nice to see more TDs when we get that close, and that's an area where I think a fully 'normal' TY could help.

I get what you're saying, but it's not that they have to get on the same page.  TY ran the route and Rivers delivered it spot on.  They're on the same page.  It's TY's job to catch it and he is failing miserably.  Definitely concerned now.  Until he starts to catch again he's not even a decoy.

I grew up down the street from one in my early youth. Us kids would ride our bikes down there several times a week after we played BB or FB all day. All you needed was some spare change back then.

Me too, back when I was kid (10 years old or so) I had one right down the road as well. A couple of friends and I would walk over and get a huge bag of hamburgers lmao . Back then hamburgers were .39 cents.

In fairness no preseason and these guys have played 2 games together.

For me personally I'm not worried yet, I don't think TY's shown enough where he's done. He turned and burned a DB on that last catch he had,  I think that was his last catch??

I also wouldn't underestimate the terrible shadows at LOS, wow they're annoying. I've been stuck in those terrible shadows attending games and they suck.

It's always tough for me on plays like that because I've seen SO MANY inept non-plays by too many guys to count over the course of Philip's career that have cost him and his teams when he's made the great play on his end. But I have to admit, I'm with you here. Yes, Hilton has played his whole career there and should know the "terrain" better than anyone, but still. I was grumbling at numerous times throughout the game about how difficult it was for me to see what was happening on my 65" HD TV because of the starkly contrasting bright light to dark shadow across various portions of the field. I can only imagine how much more difficult it must have been to deal with as a receiver/defensive back trying to track the ball through that.

 

Still, any receiver needs to catch a ball effectively laid perfectly in his hands with nobody else anywhere around him.

 

On a different note, did anyone else have to turn up the volume on your TV for that broadcast? Man, it was awful for me. I didn't watch every game yesterday, of course, but I did watch significant parts of several others across all three networks, and not one of them had the horrendously low volume problem that broadcast did. I had to more than double my normal volume level just to have a chance to understand what was being said throughout most of the game. That was ridiculous.

.25 or less when I was a kid. And they had coupons every once in a while for a bag of 10 for next to nothing.

Yeah it may have been .39 cents for the cheese burgers, I think it was .29 cents for the just the hamburger. We are about the same age.

I just found the following little blurb lol

 

Quote

White Castle opened its first restaurant in Wichita, Kansas, in 1921 and sold its burgers for only 5 cents. During the 1930s prices increased slowly. It was 1950 before the price of a hamburger rose from 10 to 12 cents. The 12-cent price held until 1967 when the price of a burger increased to 14 cents. The price of a Slider didn't reach the 27-cent mark until the early 1980s. While prices have always varied from city to city, the average price of a White Castle hamburger today is 53 cents.

 

So if correct, my big WC days were somewhere between the 14 and 27 cent days. I think early in those days, a cheeseburger was the same price as a hamburger.

 

Also, this was interesting comparing the prices of different burgers at different places over the years. McDs used to be cheap too.

In  1969 a slider with cheese was 14 cents at the White Castle on Washington St. and Oriental St. 

In 1967 a Cheeseburger, small fries and a coke was 40 cents at Burg n Steak on E. 10th St. and Tuxedo St.

    • I hate to see any player get hurt in the NFL.  But I figured if a team got desperate at QB, it would be the perfect time to dump Jacoby Brissett for a draft pick.  The Cowboys are in trouble likely and it would be a perfect time to move Brissett.  He is gone at the end of the year anyways so might as well get something out of him, since they likely won't get a comp pick if he signs somewhere else since we will sign free agents ourselves.  
    • but he is on another team, didn’t get developed here. Anderson and Jerry Hughes would be other examples of guys who developed away from us.  yeah I get it, I’m very stubborn once irritated and just what the league did at the beginning of the season has really frustrated me. They went with the wind of what voice screamed loudest and alienated many of the supporters who actually spent money on the games. Won’t be me anymore for along time most likely. Heck, Sears ticked me off once, never went back. That was 18 years ago lol.  just reading, it sounds like a lot of those pressures from AQM and Autry cane in the first few games and them died off? Could be they are or have just been used more than their bodies are capable of performing at that same high level? I suppose Houston is suffering from the same individual stat lines as Buckner has. Gets good push and pressure but isn’t getting home to make the big impact play. That is what I’ve heard on the Kevin Bowen podcast for Buckner. While he is doing what others hadn’t been able to do and he is opening up opportunities for others, he hasn’t hit the sack totals and individual stat lines that all pro players will get. Are we getting those seal plays from the edges from our Lb’ers or DE’s that we were getting with Sheard or are these QB’s and Rb’s slipping out?  agree. Didn’t we get lots more pressure from Leonard last season? I think the defense planned on Turay and Lewis being involved in this defense. Along with the addition of Buckner, having Turay and Lewis at rush end could have been the game plan but injuries and whatever is going on with Lewis so far happens. I see that Lewis is getting more reps and more praise so hopefully that’s not just coaching motivation and he is actually flashing on the field now. Would be nice to get production from him. 
    • you are making the assumption that they would not score there, so who are you to say im the one assuming the wrong thing?  you said it didnt change the game when both picks could have been points for us instead   we had more than double their yardage. the defense bent but didnt let them do much at all after the catch, and their completions were mostly short 
    • I'm not so sure.  The Jets get the Pats twice and the Chargers and Dolphins.   The Jags games are Texans, Packers, Steelers, Browns, Vikings, Titans, Ravens, Bears, Colts.   That's pretty tough.   Texans and Vikings are winnable.  I'd love for the Jags to win 4-5 games so we don't see Lawrence or Fields in the division.
    • Green will be a free agent at the end of the season. He signed a 18 million dollar contract this season so I don't imagine Ballard wants to pay that kind of money. Plus all of a sudden the Bengals are utilizing Green over the last couple of weeks.
