You’re basing this on garbage time yardage.....

Honestly. The O line needs to dominate. No more stacking the box excuses and Brissett is no longer iur qb. We have 3 st rounders and a 2nd rounder invested in the O line. I expect more. They r probsbly the most expensive O line in terms of draft position in the NFL. The term elite continually gets thrown around and I have said they r not and get criticized for it.

And you obviously didn’t see the run by JT that literally dragged half the Jets D by himself 6-8 extra yards, then nearly broke free for a Home run before finally going down 4 yards later... turning what was a 2-3 yard gain into 16-18. the announcers were stunned and said you don’t see that in the nfl hardly ever.

That TD run was special.  It looked like the defender had him dead to rights.  Taylor is still learning, but he looked good overall, besides the one run right into the backs of his o-line early on.  Looks like he could have cut left.

That 3rd and 3 run was bad, had he run left he had probably 8+ yards. The TD run was great but the Safety Mcdougal also wanted nothing to do with JT, with his half-butt lunge in the hole.

Just gonna throw this out there. Reggie Wayne didn’t start becoming the Reggie we all loved until year 3...

Huh. He has had some pretty big plays. Caught everything that has come his way. We spread the ball so much. He is doing exactly what we need him to. He is catching the ball when it comes his way. He will keep improving as the season goes on.

They run Wilkins more zone block to the edge, and also run him late in games when the D is worn down. Those two things have significant impact.

 

I'm not sold on Taylor yet, but Wilkins is good at some things, and not so good at others. He's not near as good running inside, or in man/power.

He was targeted 4 times and caught 3. Exactly what were you expecting? 

There were 8 receivers who caught passes.

Agree.  He’s being worked into the offense.  Remember he had no off-season program and no pre-season games.  Other than a couple of flags last week he’s done what’s been asked of him.

That is confusing. I don’t think they were watching. I think Rivers has only been sacked one time. Maybe not at all. I can’t recall if he has or not. The oline is playing great. We are playing a better defense next week so we will see.

my thoughts are that your eyes aren’t working properly for an eye test of this sort...

you get criticized because you are incorrect. This offensive line is elite by the very definition. They have three elite first round players in Castonzo, Nelson (the best lineman in the league, IMO) Kelly who is a top 5 center... and two above average players on the right sides. AND they have now played 19 straight games together as a unit which is 16 more games than the 2nd most consistent unit. THAT is elite. And why you get criticized.

We win 36-7

We had 3 picks. 

We had 2 defensive pick sixes

We had a safety

We had 2 sacks

We didn't give up a sack

We had zero turnovers

Our punter put 3 out of 4 punts inside the 20

 To read a few of the comments in here you would have thought we lost the game. 

Way too much crying and whining for my taste.

It's only the 3rd game without a preseason.  We are in a good place.  The OL will hit it's stride soon enough.  Taylor still zigs when he should have zagged on a few runs but time will straighten that out.  I'm a little more worried about scrambling QB's doing damage.  The good ones with weapons concern me.  Hopefully our secondary will continue to improve.

Well said. The Colts are far from perfect, but they won big and played hard. I think they’ll get better and better as the season progresses. The Negative  Nancies are always going to whine unless it’s a shutout and the Colts pass for 300 and run for 200. The adults in the room know this was a good day.

JT is has so much more talent then wilkins, but he is hesitating when getting the ball instead of just hitting the hole . He is extremely fast and talented and can be a elite RB even better then mack .  Just needs more time and slightly better vision looking for the holes.

    • Darius Leonard didn't sign his contract until July 23d. It's alright, folks. With the new CBA there is nothing that can really happen. Sooner or later the contract will get signed. 
    • People here don’t complain about the process, because people here don’t know the process.   Almost no one here does.    People here complain about the outcome, especially if it disagrees with their opinion.     So, for example, people here hated LaRaven Clark.   A few seasons back, Clarke had to play a fair amount for the Colts in the first month.   PFF gave him a passing grade, I think in the 60’s after the first quarter.  People here went nuts.   The team was struggling and Clarke was the designated person to blame.   By the end of the season, Clarke’s grade was lower, but that didn’t matter.  Once people here decide something is bad, it’s incredibly hard to change hearts and minds.    When Chip Kelly was the Eagles coach for two years, he HATED pff.   When he got fired, he accepted an invitation to visit and see what they do.   Kelly was so impressed that he became an investor.  Cris Collinsworth too.    It’s my understanding each game, is graded three different times by three different people and none of them knows what the others have done.     They’re not perfect.   I think their NFL grading is better than some of their college work.  But overall, I think they’re helpful.  Very helpful. 
    • So I know most expect mack to be gone what if he still decides to come back  even after this year ? I feel like a lot keep discrediting how good he was before Jt lol his vision is still better I’d assume between the two 
    • You're blessed to still have both comics and albums.  My brother got rid of the comics as they had gone moldy from basement floods my parents would have.   As for the albums, I used to DJ in the late 70's, early 80's, then again in the 90's (mostly all mobile stuff), but I lost my natural hearing and gave all my records and equipment away.  I wish I had it all back now.  Between my older brother and I we had been collecting music since the 60's. I know how hard it is to part with it.  Don't ever let it go, bro!  Haha.
    • I heard he’s holding out because the forum wanted someone else when he was drafted.     just for the record the above is said with heavy sarcasm.
