Bengals @ Colts Game Day Thread, October 18, 2020, 1:00pm ET


Recommended Posts

 

Your Indianapolis Colts (3-2) look to return to winning ways when they face the Cincinnati Bengals (1-3-1) at home this Sunday. They will play this one without TE Mo Alie-Cox (Out), T Chaz Green (Out), and LB Darius Leonard (doubtful). Anthony Castonzo is questionable.  The Bengals list only two players on their injured list:

Auden Tate (Doubtful) and Mackensie Alexander (Questionable). 

 

The Bengals pass defense is surprisingly strong but the run defense is among the worst in the league. Expect the Colts to run the ball. The Colts defense will try to stop the #1 overall pick in Joe Burrow. It should be a fun game to watch. Good luck!  :cheer:

Keeping a player down when a team is running hurry up is unsportsmanlike conduct refs,  you’ve called every tricky tack call you can make against the Colts call the obvious ones on the bengals please.

Ahh Blackmon... fast becoming a gamechanger

Expecting a career day from Johnathan Taylor today.

I am hopeful.  This could be a day we see if JT can be a workhorse.  Run him hard and then go into the bye week to rest him.

And please, please, please, use that to set up play action.

Not really when you figure in Church and lunch

I wish I could get back to 12pm game start times. Those were the good ol days.

 

Not a fan of time chance.

Inactives:

 

TE Mo Alie-Cox
DE Ron'Dell Carter
QB Jacob Eason
WR Daurice Fountain
OG Chaz Green
LB Darius Leonard
WR Dezmon Patmon

Sucks Leonard is out, but this should probably be it, with a bye next week.

 

That will give him a nice little 4 week recovery period.

 

Nice to have AC back in the lineup.

Try growing up on the Time Zone

    My Grandmother had her clocks set on both times and since PCHS plays in a conference that is split by the timeline every game is early

 why arefountain and carter inactive .   fountain is the 3rd best wr left since pittman and cambell are out.   Houston and autry are really banged up to have only mohamad and ben as the defensive ends could be bad news .  I hope houston and autry dont leave the game

Also, why is Patmon incactive again if Fountain is inactive? Who makes these decisions? Reich or Ballard? Patmon is getting the raw end of the deal as well. He can't start if Pittman and Campbell are hurt and Fountain is inactive? Not only that, Eason is inactive again? I agree on Carter as well. No point in claiming him off waivers if you're not going to use him.

The difference in run game between last year and this year is patience .  last year in tons of games the colts were getting stuffed in the first half of games , and they just stuck with the run .  Then in the second half the colts run game took over .  IT seems this year the colts give up on the run game if it does not work early , and throw more with rivers .

Wonder where we use Harris, he can play slot wr as well as halfback, we may see him in both spots a bit today. I agree Taylor has a big day, Burton may as well.

It is kinda curious that Harris got the active tag over Fountain and Patmon.

 

Saw Wilkins was questionable coming in as well. So that should give Taylor more looks as well, hopefully.

 

I want 20+ carries for Taylor today.

when did the colts get him i thought i knew every single player on the colts 53 man roster . never even heard about him. is he a running back?

He is a RB/WR hybrid. I forgot most of what I knew about him. But he had a good backstory and I remember I really liked him when we signed him in April.

Surprised they didn’t use the Harris call up on one of the PS RBs

Don't be surprised if Harris steals 10 carries from Taylor today. From what I remember about him, I believe he has 4.3-4.4 speed. Just a hunch if they are calling him up.

    • He's definitely not a top 5 cornerback at all..   Alexander, Ramsey, White, Howard, Humphrey, and tons of others have been way better than him this year
    • Right. Reich talked about it in the offseason...that explosive plays were a missing ingredient. Whether he practiced what he preached is a different story (and of course there’s context that goes into that...like who their QB was). I am just saying that he has indicated that he wants to be more than a methodical clock control offense. And I think Reich will look to do that...when they have the QB in place.   DVOA definitely has the Colts defense rated ahead of the offense. The Colts  overall defense was #7 and the overall offense was #12. More specific to passing, the Colts passing offense was #16 and the Colts passing defense was #8.   The defensive ratings are likely skewed by the first half of the season...but the offense had the easiest schedule of any team...and still managed to be middle of the pack in passing offense (according to DVOA).    Yes there’s room for improvement on defense...but it’s tough to expect better than a top 7 unit. An edge rusher will help with the pressure rates...but they have showed they can make big plays and create takeaways. I would say the defense is pretty damn close to being a viable SB winning defense (especially when teams like KC, GB and BUF are currently playing to go to the SB).   So the priority should be the passing offense. It’s the necessity to this team getting to the next level...which is a SB. Otherwise, they would have to buck a trend that only historically elite defenses have been able to do.   And to improve the offense...they need a franchise QB and additional weapons. 
    • Well Frank said moving him to tackle would be discussed this off-season so the Colts are at least considering it.  Rather they do it or not remains to be seen.
    • Good blooper reel of Cole vs Louisiana with 10s left in 2Q where the BJ takes him out.  Good backpedaling and change of direction with enough speed to build up enough force to get knocked down.  May need some NFL strength conditioning to help shed blocks.
    • Do I need to point this out? We all know how valuable LT's are in the draft. If Quentin Freaking Nelson was LT quality, he would have not been paid a # ton of money to be a guard. He would have been scooped up ASAP as a TACKLE.     What....like every team missed this and suddenly he can be just as awesome as a tackle?
