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.

    • Very true.  Even day two.  After Pitts the drop off is significant.  There will be FAs with experience that would be just as good or better.  
    • I disagree with this. I believe Ballard didn't want to pay up for an EDGE rusher. He admitted he wanted Autry back, and he went to the Titans instead. That was plan A. Afterward, he signed Rochell and re-signed Muhammed to somewhat stabilize the D-Line. He is now having to decide whether to re-sign Houston, or draft an EDGE in the first two rounds.    We are being forced to see what we have in Banogu, Turay, and Lewis. They are all 2nd round picks and it's sink or swim for them. They definitely aren't better options than Autry and Houston. I would say the same about the top EDGE rushers in FA this year. Cheaper? Yes. Better? No. Right now, we don't have an EDGE rusher that we can depend on. Maybe that changes, but EDGE is our biggest weakness on the team, bar none. At least with LT, it can be masked with Q and the rest of the O-Line along with some solid depth we signed. We are literally masking the entire EDGE spot with Buckner right now, and we're fully dependant on signing Houston back, or drafting an EDGE rusher that makes an immediate impact without knowing yet if Banogu, Turay, or Lewis improves.   Unfortunately, losing Autry hurt pretty badly. That will be hard to make up without some luck.
    • Tremble has been one of my early favorites   I saw one of the commentators mention the other day, that Tremble has had issues with drops   The little games I have watched, they didnt throw much to him...... is this an issue?    
    • You may end up being right, but lets be honest, these 4 are not playmakers, they are just familiar names to us on a roster.   We need some pass rush to get this defensive scheme to work. None of these 4 have proven that they can bring this on a consistent basis   When the offensive line was weak, we drafted both Q and Smith in the same year   I hope they take the same tact this year. 1 early, and 1 mid rounds that can develop.   Also, 3 of these 4 are free agents next year. We will have some churn next year.   We had better load up at an important position, IMHO              
    • OtC has us at $23.5m w/o Carrie signing. I imagine he is close to minimum, but will figure him in at $2m for this. So that would be a top 51 cap hit of $1.2m. Dropping us to $22.3m.   Now if we were to sign Ertz and Houston for your $12m that would only be a top 51 cap hit of $10.4m, dropping our cap space to $11.9m.   Currently only 2 of our draft picks count against the top 51: #21 - $2.48m 2nd - $1.15m   Those 2 would only be a top 51 cap hit of $2m, dropping our cap space to $9.9m.     All other picks would fall below that threshold and not count against the top 51 cap.   Saying that, your scenario has us trading down(likely, imo), so good chance  it would be our 1st or 2nd, which would lower those cap hits.     So I would say your scenario would leave us with around $10m left.
