i'm proud of this team great win indeed. I just hope we can figure out the redzone issue quickly though cause browns offense looking legit..

Play calling and line play have to get better.

100%. A win is always the goal.

 

I am worried about that offense, especially in the redzone

Team badly misses Campbell, Pittman.

Yeah offense played poorly, defense outstanding.

 

We are lacking a few playmakers in the skill positions, especially now that we are down Mack, Pittman and Campbell. TY is getting better but he clearly isn't the TY we knew from 2013 to 2018. You can see Reich trying to get Burton involved, it will take him a couple of games to get up to speed. Rivers is who he is.

 

I think we are going to need the defense to keep playing well to win. Our offense is just average now.

Saw on Twitter it was non contact so that’s not good.  
 

Leonard has a groin injury and those are never good.  
 

Moore and Taylor also got banged up but came back in but Moore was limping.

The Bears were 3-0 coming into this game. It's not like we didn't beat a pretty good team. 

I am not going to rag on this team. They did control that game. 

Yep. We took care of business where it mattered. And how about the special teams unit? They’re not getting too much love but they’ve really played a big role in our wins this year.

Agreed, you’d never known that from the announcers though.  They were more pro-bears today than announcers normally are.  I wasn’t a fan of them it wasn’t until the Colts had the game won they finally admitted the Colts defense played great.  
 

A win is a win.  The Colts are 3-1.  Do they have problems?  Sure.  Is it fair to discuss those problems?  Sure.  Should we be happy that they are 3-1 and not nitpick everything to death?  Also true.

Offense feels like its right there. They don't look bad, they're just not converting when it really matters. Our situational offense is stopping us from dropping 30 pts per game

We have a very good team. Weve been the ones dictating and controlling the flow of the game in pretty much every contest. We just need to get our execution together and the way we are using our personnel. Should be dropping 30 a game or more. Really need to yake care of these red zone issues

Weird Reich only said their monitoring Leonard’s injury made no mention of Rock.

Agreed offense needs some work but overall they are controlling the clock and still getting points.  All be it field goals.  They need to be a little better in the red zone but you can’t ask much more out of the defense and special teams right now.

Hopefully it was just a cramp or something then.

3-0 in soldier field with vs the (presumably) superior nick foles, and a very strong D.  This win was ugly but it was good none the less.

My boy Blackmon put together a nice game today. Several breakups and a pick.

I was going to start another thread on this but since you brought him I’ll do it here.  He’s showing why the Colts spent a second rounder on him.  He’s done more in four weeks than Hooker has done in four years.

This wasn’t ugly. It was old school smash mouth play by BOTH defenses. And we came out on top. Heard after the game, Chicago number 3 on overall Defense, we were number 1 coming in. And both defenses played like it. Heck of a game really

He can surely lay the wood too

Yeah, I'm all on the Blackmon hype train. He may be my favorite to watch so far this year. Just making big time,  well-timed, plays and hitting HARD. Love it.

It was an ugly game.  It doesn’t mean it wasn’t a good win for the Colts and it doesn’t mean the Colts defense wasn’t good.  They were and so was Chicago’s but it was ugly.  Still it takes NOTHING away from the Colts today.

Houston is that much better with Buckner . Imagine if we get Turay back after the bye.

 

Browns don’t have as tough as a defense but they can score. It will be another nice test for this defense. If we can get just this browns win then get Pittman and Turay back after the bye we will be in great shape the hard part of our schedule.

Those 2 PBUs he had in the second half when he made those hits, you’d never see Hooker step up and hit with that sort of ferocity. I guarantee Hooker wouldn’t have made those plays. He is already better in my opinion. I love his playing style. He looks like a gem of a find by Chris Ballard.

Even though the running games weren't great for either team, with the defensive play where I'm from we call it an ol school slobberknocker lol. Red zone offense is my only real concern, we won't be able to settle for 3 all the time. Still some things to improve upon but a W. :helmet:

    • Which if he’d had any balls, he’d refused. 
    • By now most should realize the Colts prefer to retain their own as much as possible.  The defense is much improved with the signing in place but always room for improvement at key positions.  Below is my FA/resign list have already put together mid-season.   Colts FA ~58m: QB Jacoby Brissett 21.3 WR T.Y. Hilton 14.5 TE Jack Doyle 8.5 RDE Denico Autry 5.7 ILB Anthony Walker 2.2 S Tavon Wilson 750k DB Tremon Smith 750k (keeper?) WR Marcus Johnson 582k (practice squad) S Malik Hooker 4m WR Ashton Dulin 542k   Resign ~ 90m QB Philip Rivers 26.3m (probably will drop) DE Justin Houston 11m (3-4 good years left like Mathis and Freeny) DB Xavier Rhodes 8m RG Mark Glowinski 6.9 (improved game this year) RDT Grover Stewart 7.5m (most improved player on defense) DE Al-Quadin Muhammad 3m OL Le’Raven Clark 1.2m DB T.J. Carrie 1.2m (special teamer) TE Trey Burton 4.5m S George Odum 1.25 TE Mo Alie-Cox (RFA) – 6.25m DT Taylor Stallworth 1m (otc hit 4.8m in 1 game) LT Chaz Green 850k (special teams) WR Zach Pascal 7m RB Marlon Mack 4m (when healthy proved to be lead back) C Joey Hunt 300k RG Jake Eldrenkamp 200k (special teamer) Edge Cassius Marsh 250k (special teamer) TE Farrod Green 200k (practice squad) S Ibraheim Campbell 200k (special teamer)
    • Originally was thinking we would be closer to 100 mil in cap space but sounds more like 75 mil.  Kind of why for this example only budgeted ~40 mil for FAs after calculating ~95 mil to resign players while leaving a minimum of 20 mil to sign draftees.  This should still allow discretionary cap space for the Club to do as needed short-term.
    • I still have Patrick Jones II at the top of my early 2021 NFL Draft Board.  Would be happy to acquire either Weaver or Jones.  Other top names have seen but truthfully haven't been impressed with them as have been with these two players at RDE.
    • No one gets stoned anymore in civilized societies!   Wait, that didn't sound right...
