Your Indianapolis Colts look to extend their win streak when they travel to Chicago to play the undefeated Bears on Sunday afternoon. The Colts have a 2-1 record after back to back wins against the Vi

They’ll never suspect it... 

Perhaps it is because Chicago's defense is pretty good.

The Bears r brining it. They r playing the run. I dont think they respect the talent we have at a wr.

 

We are pretty banged up there.

 

What we do have left, TY isn't what he once was and Pascal is our 2.

Not enough  taylor

Agreed. I think they r trying to get Hines involved. Who cares. Go with JT. There is nothing wrong with having a primary back. I think Reich gets a little stuck on the running back by committee approach.

This is going to be a tough second half.  Our 2nd half adjustments don't usually amount to much.  With Leonard probably out I am definitely worried about Noles getting in a grove.  Their defense is tough.  We have a long way to go.

I’m just...out of things to say to you today. Throw the ball away and stop the clock when they don’t have any timeouts? Or eat the sack and keep the game clock moving. 
 

Decisions decisions...


You, uh... You scared of the Bears diving for a TD in under 90 seconds?

 

That must be awful.

This is an elite D. The passing game is not taking any pressure off the O line. We have no wrs that scare the Bears

We got Taylor on a snap count or something?


No. Reich has done this with RBs the entire time he’s been here. The Vikings game was the exception, not the rule. He churns the backs in and out way too much. We don’t have a starter, or even a lead back. It’s just a muddle.

    • Sure puts everything in perspective, as far as importance of things! Rigo’s a young, healthy guy and this was thankfully caught early, giving him a better than average chance of beating it.
    • No, he still had time left on his contract with the Colts when he retired. 
    • Thoughts and prayers to Rigoberto and his family.  Wish them all the best, all the strength, all the peace, and patience to get through.   I'm relieved to hear that it seems they caught it early.  Hopeful that he will ultimately be ok and back with the team relatively soon.  
    • Flip flopping the oline is not the answer imo. Keep the other starting four right where they are. The chemistry at least remains intact there. Replace just the LT best you can. If not keep te there or back to help protect. 
    • Beginning to wonder if MJC is Ryan Grigson himself.... He’s not been perfect and I’d like for him to be better and take less projects but compared to what we had with the prior regime, it’s a night and day difference.    so I chose to do some research. This comes from Forbes, Bleacher Report and Walter Football as none of them had complete stats by themselves.    The average career length in the NFL is 3.3 years. So since all the above defined draft success as the percentage of starters from each round starting for their team that chose them, I did the same and looked at data showing the percentages of starters that came from each round for the last 3 years. This includes all 3 phases, O and D, and Special Teams.  Per the above sources: percentages of starts by players taken in each respective rounds combined since 2017.    1st Round- 29.9 percent league wide. 2nd Round- 19.4 percent league wide 3rd Round - 11.6 percent league wide. 4-7- 26 percent combined  Undrafted- 13.1 percent. League wide.     now for Ballard, taking ONLY his picks, not previous regime players that are still on the team. Special teams starters are NOT included in this. Just first string O and D.    1st Round- Hooker,Nelson,Buckner(via trade): 2/3 currently starting, 1 on IR that was a starter but that is likely gone at the end of the year, so I’m counting that as a loss. 66.7 percent.    2nd round: 10 picks: 7/10 have become starters. 70 percent.    3rd round: 3 picks, 2/3 starters, that being Bobby O and Blackmon. 66.7%   4th thru 7 rounds: 5/24 or 20.8 percent(this number would jump a few points if I counted special teams.)   Yes, Ballard is above the league Average in getting starting results in rounds 1-3 but below average 4-7....
