It was ugly but I’ll take it


Recommended Posts

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.

Anyone know what was Rock injury ther near the end.

Team badly misses Campbell, Pittman.

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:

    • The Colts will have an easier time prying Watson out of Houston than the top pick from the Jags.  
    • Way too early to know.      I mean I could say I want a free agent but we don’t know whose going to be available or what the price tag would be.  With the draft they haven’t had to the combine or whatever the Combine will be this year to really give you an idea of where guys will be drafted.     just too many variables.     what I do know is that Ballard will address it.  So for now that’s good enough for me.
    • I don’t get the rage from the OP.  I don’t think anyone thinks if the Colts bring Jacoby back he’s going to be the long term answer at QB.  At most he’d be a bridge starter to a rookie but even that is unlikely.  If he’s brought back it would be as the back up QB.  It’s also not going to be close to the money he made before.  I also got the impression from Ballard’s presser it seemed like while he likes Jacoby he seemed to be saying it’s unlikely he would be back.   So I guess I don’t think there is much to worry about on this front.  
    • Just to give you an idea of how draft trades work when the Redskins moved up nine spots to pick 26 at the end of the first round it cost them two second rounders.  A first and second aren’t going to get you up high enough to take a QB unless someone majorly slips and if that happens you have to wonder why they are falling that far.  Yes Rodgers slipped but so Johnny Football and Brady Quinn and guys who have careers that turn out like that are far more common for QBs who slip that far in the first round than a guy like Rodgers.  They slip because teams don’t think he’s the guy.     Now with that said I do think that’s what Ballard was talking about when he said it takes a little luck.  He knows for them to get a QB early in the draft someone he really likes is going to have to slip some.  So I wouldn’t rule out him going up to get someone if they slip bit picking at 21 your talking mid first round at the earliest for a first and second.  They aren’t going to jump into the top ten for that.     the closet I can find to that kind of move is the Jets going up 12 picks from 17 to 5 to get Sanchez and it cost them a first, a second, and three players.  Point being it didn’t come cheap and 1st and 2nd alone isn’t going to get you where you want to be to get a stud QB when your picking 21 in all likely hood.
