speaking of cowboys they might win division this year at 5 - 11   

Leave me alone!   Browns - 28 Colts - 24

24-20 colts......Rivers tossing 3 in the redzone.  Mo, Pascal, Hines.

We will win as long as we do a good job against the run. Shut it down in total or at least get enough stops that end in field goals. Concentrate on Beckam and make them win with their other less explosive guys. Rhodes and some help can handle Beckham and Kenny Moore shouldnt have an issue with Landry. So far I havent seen us have an issue with Tight ends and just in general we havent given up the deep ball. Beckham is the primary and i believe only deep threat. Im expecting we will pick Mayfield off at least once or twice.

 

 Offensively I think we should have no problems moving the football. They arent the Bears D. I think we need about 3 TD and maybe 1 to 2 field goals to put the wraps on them. My gut tells me we are going to be more prepared than this young team. Thats ultimately what will make the difference.

 

28-17 Colts

Wasn’t Leonard out the entire second half against the Bears?  The D still performed well. 
 

Groin injuries can linger and affect a player all season. I would prefer he rest it through the bye. I doubt he will be very effective if he plays. 
 

AC’s PFF rating is 63.6 so far. If injured, his performance could be worse. Do we think it would be a dramatic drop off if he doesn’t start? 
 

Browns are also banged up. 
 

I like the Colts in a relatively high-scoring game but think it will come down to turnovers. Browns are currently #1 in turnover differential and have recovered a whopping 6 fumbles. Fortunately JT is great with ball protection!

Leonard was running on the side today with trainers. Okereke was back at practice with a club. Walker though was not at practice. AC still not practicing. I think we are about to see what Clark is made of. Going to need great blocking from WR and TE along with a great run game Sunday.

The way the ESPN NFL Live crew worded it yesterday it seemed like he was. I hope he isn't. 

He had a video interview today and they asked asked him how was he feeling and could he play Sunday? And he said he could play Sunday without practice this week....we'll see tho

My Predictions

 

Defense:

-Lockdown Odell

-Pressure Mayfield

-Slow down (or stop) the run game

 

Offense:

-Drive down the field with several good passes and some decent runs

-Sputter in red zone, kick FGs

 

Colts 17, Browns 13

 

We need WRs badly

28 - 24 Browns.
 

Phillip Rivers throws an INT and gives up a FF. The Colts Defense forces punts early but turnovers allow Browns to go on a run.

 

I hope I’m wrong but just have a feeling. Who knows maybe our defense is the real deal and we show we’re a playoff team with the W.

    • In addition to some of the examples from @stitches:   - Was your offense restricted last season by having a less mobile QB? If so, in what ways? - Your offense was bottom third in play action attempts last season. Can you talk about how play action fits in your offense, and how it might be affected by the physical ability of the QB? - Your defense had some really good stretches, but was less effective against good QBing. (Example, short clock but long TD drives against the Bills/Packers, etc.) What will it take for the defense to take another step forward this season? - What will be Press Taylor's role on the staff? Will that differ from his role in Philly? - You went from a RB coach with decades of experience, to one who hasn't played or directly coached RBs so far. What went into that decision and what kind of impact might it have on the RB group? - At what positions do you think you most need improved playmaking? - How do you think the limited college season, no Combine, and restricted travel might impact prospect evaluation? - To what extent, if any, do you think being the primary play caller impacts your game management and decision making? - Do you still have weekly protection meetings like you did in 2018? How might those be impacted by the changes on the coaching staff?   Just saying, there's a lot of meat out there. Don't have to keep gnawing at the same bone.   Imagine this group trying to cover Gregg Popovich...
    • In your opinion what team was the best Colts team ever?
    • I think the biggest issue with this mock is it is assuming that filling spots on the OL is as simple as just that. We have a void at LT, so we trade our starting center to then draft one. Then we use another draft pick to get a new center. On paper, that fills the needs, but OL is so much more than that. This isn't Madden where you can insert any G with comparable skills and gets the same result. Chemistry is one of the biggest pieces of the puzzle for an OL and that's not plug and play. If you have members of your OL playing at a high level, you don't trade them away, because you're not just potentially weakening that position, but also the ones around it.   I'm all for out of the box thinking and appreciate your mocks presenting situations that most of us would never think of. With that, the further "out of the box" you get, the more criticism you'll typically get. With this one, I think the criticism is less with the players picked (I love Darrisaw, just not that high), and more to do with the disruption of OL chemistry that is never a good idea.
    • Tampa has been low key collecting a great overall team. There's a reason they're the champs, they just needed that lift from the QB. Can they sustain it for next year? There's a pretty good chance. 
    • He'll get more than that.
