To be fair, he was already mid suplex when the whistle was blown.


If the ref had swallowed his whistle and choked to death on it on the sidelines it was still a penalty. 
 

And as a trained professional wrestler whoever it was that took it is lucky he didn’t break his damn neck. I’ve never understood why teams don’t teach players to bump like we do. It would save a lot of injuries in a season. There’s a reason wrestlers are able to do that 2 dozen times a night 4 nights a week for 25+ years, even into their senior years. Teach them to protect themselves.

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)

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

Jesus fox’s coverage is awful. Please someone make this stop...

Agreed, the only highlights they showed were from the Bengals. Didn’t show any of those great throws from Rivers and unpack the come back

Harris rocking the #12 officially puts the final nail in Luck’s Colts career?

I think in Ballards mind that nail was there the day he retired.  I’ve said from the way Ballard has talked about luck even if he came back Ballard wouldn’t welcome him.  Irsay may overrule him but I don’t think Ballard wants luck back.

With our history of injuries I’d try anything.

If you watch walker on that play it tells the story before the flag even came out he’s doing the what are you doing thing with his arms.  They knew.

I agree. Ballard was not happy at all.

I know. I isn't really about the Johnson vs Hilton matchup.

 

Just using him as a reference point.

 

Are we in developmental time though, or win now? 

 

I think Johnson gives us better chance in the present.

 

If the season is a wash, get Patmon and Dulin in there.

All teams "develop" their youth during the season. It's not a case where developing guys means you aren't trying to win now. Fountain and Dulin have been open when given snaps (when not clear out or rub decoys), and are both 2 of 3. 

 

Like I said, its simply mixed feelings. Not sure why you have an issue with that. I'm happy Johnson is contributing and playing well. I'm not cheering against him.

 Arms straight out, palms down, and most importantly tuck your chin to your chest. Make sure you land with your feet flat. If you can’t, keep them in the air, you don’t want to smack your heels. Distributes the impact across your shoulders and arms. I’ve never taken a bump and been hurt. May get the wind knocked out on some of the harder or faster ones, but even that is rare. I’ve never understood why they don’t teach players to land like that when the situation arises.

it makes sense too and I'm not even mad at it

 

Same, it's going to be an interesting phase of the league as the last few of the 'old guard' ride off into the sunset. I think we had a core era of the likes of Manning/Manning/Brady/Brees/Rivers and we're transitioning into the next set of franchise guys.

    • They were never going to pick Lamar in 2018   Karl Joseph is a bench player and Fitzpatrick is much better than him anyways   Not sure what this post is getting after
    • They are likely kicking the can down the road, and the negative consequence is higher cap numbers for those players in future seasons, and greater cap penalties to move on from those players in future seasons. The thing is there's no much else they can do. they're set to be nearly $70m over the cap in 2021, and other than these restructures, they would not be able to get under the cap by the start of the new league year. They would have to cut or trade all of their highly paid players.
    • I feel the hype about Carl Lawson is from a combination of people who haven't really watched him play, and who overrate "pressures" by assuming that all pressures are equally disruptive.    Lawson is a tough, physical, high effort guy, he tackles well, plays the run reasonably well, he has decent size, and he would fit nicely as a DE for us. He's not a dynamic pass rusher, and I don't think he ever would be a dynamic pass rusher.   He has some quickness and speed, good speed to power, but he's not the kind of explosive pass rusher that blows up the other team's blocking schemes. He has below average bend and closing speed, and he takes a lot of steps, which explains his tragically poor three cone. He also has below average length, and gets neutralized by good blockers. This is all obvious on his tape, it was obvious on his college tape, and it's why he went in the 4th round.   TomDiggs mentioned Lawson's knockdowns/hits and hurries. PFF recorded six edge rushers with at least QB 15 hits; despite the fact that Lawson had 24 hits, he only had five sacks, which is the least sacks among those six players. In fact, there were ten edges with fewer than 15 QB hits, but with at least ten sacks. PFF has 24 edges with at least 30 pressures; Lawson had 34 hurries, but was tied for fifth fewest sacks among those 24 players. In fact, there were five edges with fewer hurries than Lawson, but at least ten sacks.   My point is that QB hits and pressures only show a player that manages to get near the QB at some point during the play. Without context, they don't necessarily show a player that makes a definite impact on the play. That's why I value PFF's pass rush productivity (PRP) stat, because sacks are weighted more heavily than hits and pressures. And that makes sense because a sack ends the play. A QB can be pressured, even hit, and still make a positive play. Recognizing a sack as nearly always a negative play for the offense, PRP shows the difference between a guy who gets near the QB, and a pass rusher who makes plays for the defense. Sometimes the overlap is not as great as you might think.   Lawson's PRP was 8.5, tied for #18, well separated from guys like Bosa (10.6) and Watt (9.7). In general, a player with a bunch of total pressures, but low sack numbers, like Lawson, is a guy who gets a bunch of pass rush snaps but doesn't have the length, bend and closing speed to get home often enough. This is why guys like Trey Hendrickson and Leonard Floyd can have a third fewer total pressures, but twice as many sacks as Lawson (Hendrickson also had 80 fewer pass rush snaps). And Lawson gets a ton of pass rush snaps because he plays for a bad team with no other good edge rushers, so as long as he's healthy he'll have a lot of pressures, but he'll probably never be a big sack guy.   He's Trey Flowers. Better 40, same agility, not as long, mid level edge rusher who is well rounded and a good guy to have on your team, but not a dominant pass rusher. I can't see offering him $14m/year to not sack the QB. Any projection that has him as a big time sack guy is unrealistic, IMO.
    • It's nice to see Pittman, Smith and Okereke get some love.
    • Did I misread your post?   Did you not say you were in favor of moving Nelson to LT?   That if we’re going to pay him top dollar, it would be better to do it with him as our LT instead of at LG?    That wasn’t you?    I’m sorry, I thought that’s what I responded to....
