Decent quick hit from ESPN below. Under bold prediction, I'm going to go with Autry leading the team in sacks tomorrow (unless the swap sides with him and Houston)

 

Very depressing (stat about TY). Hope he rocks it tomorrow and ends that streak.

Interesting thought. Do you line Houston up against the rookie behemoth or the 2nd stringer? I feel like Houston's technical prowess would give him the edge against a physically superior Becton, where Autry may struggle a bit against him. Regardless, I can see our DL feasting tomorrow.

I think you're right. Autry has been playing very well though, so IDK. Autry is bigger (taller and heavier) than Houston, but I tend to agree he's better technically and may fair better. Pretty sure Houston is stronger and faster too. If memory serves, Autry has played a few more snaps than Houston each game, which surprised me a bit. I knew Autry might float between DT and DE picking up higher than thought snaps, but just thought Houston would be on the field more. Also surprised Becton is grading out as high as he is this early (he's around 80).

 

Also keep in mind though that Becton was on the injury list and LP 2 of 3 practices with a bum shoulder. Doubt he's 100%. And prior to that, was LP due to a bum knee. I think we should have Buckner and a DE sandwich him a couple times to kick the game off lol. 

 

But yes, we should feast.

The only element that "might" struggle is our running game, but I don't think that will happen either. Our pass O, pass D, and rush D should all dominate. My fear is we come out with a very conservative game plan, playing soft zone, and trying to not pass. 

I think Reich knows the importance of coming out the gate hot against a team most teams would look past. The offense has struggled in the red zone so far in 2020 which needs to change today. The Colts need to come out and put the Jets behind early by being able to score multiple touchdowns while allowing their D to continue where they left off last week. I honestly think the Colts will come out throwing the ball on their first couple of positions and once they build a comfortable lead they will control the clock with Taylor and Wilkins.

 If this Colts team is any good (ie; 10+ wins good), they'll show up today and take care of business

 from the jump. They're the better team. They're at home. The Jets are missing a bunch of guys and

 are coached by the worst HC in the NFL.

Yep. I'd be more than happy with that. Some passing early will set the tone, and I just hope our coverage doesn't revert back to Charmin. I know we don't want to show all that much vs a team like the Jets, but need to work out some of the kinks on O before we play Chicago, and some of the kinks on D before we play Cleveland.

Bangou set for his first sack of the season today, look for Buckner to give former Colts backup center Josh Andrews who is starting today fits all day long. I expect former Colts corner Desir to be shadowing T.Y. while Quincy Wilson and Nate Hairston line up on Pittman and Pascal.....

 

Counting 8 former Colts likely to see a lot of playing time 1 more is on I.R. while 2 more are stashed on P.S.

Wilson is out, and Hairston is questionable IIRC.

 

Ben got a hurry/pressure last week, was so close. He should feast with the rest today.

 

TY is well overdue to break his non-100 streak. Hate to see Desir be the victim lol.

    • Fair point.   No quibble.       
    • I could easily be wrong about this,  but I think you're high on Nelson, Leonard and Smith.    Maybe not by a lot,  but by enough that the Colts will have more money left than you think.   ***I think Q can pick the length of his deal.   I'm guessing he'll have the following options.  4/60 (15) or 5/80 (16) or 6/102. (17) ***I think Leonard is looking at roughly   4/56 (14)  5/75. (15) ***I think Smith is looking at                    4/50 (12.5)  5/65 (13)   The keys to all three deals are....   the signing bonus and the amount guaranteed at signing --- these two are often confused, but they are not the same.     
    • I'm not saying you don't need speed and/or power. I'm just pointing out college players rely on it too often because it works in college, but then find out without technique their not as efficient.
    • OK......      I'm not speaking to Basham at all.    Have seen zero film on him.   I was only trying to say that DL's using speed and/or power in the NFL have worked since the league began.    PLayers who don't with at least one of them typically don't last long in the NFL.    The ones who can win with both have long, successful careers.   More to the point, our whole defense is built on speed.   Especially on the defensive front.   Look at our DE's.   Houston uses both speed and power.    Autry uses both as he plays DE and DT.   Turay is a speed guy.   Banogu is a speed guy.   Lewis, is a bit like Autry in that he plays both DE and DT.    He's trying to use both to win.    We're trying to find DL who win with their first step.  Get even on step 2,  and pass the OL on step 3.       Do the D-Lineman need to develop better hand moves -- absolutely.   100 percent.   That's why Ballard says young DL often need 2-3 years to figure things out.    He just noted Jerry Hughes who didn't blossom until Year 4 with Buffalo.   We gave up on him too soon.    Sorry,  don't mean to belabor the point,  I wanted to read your response before I posted what I needed to say....   Thanks...
