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.

    • Yea definitely will be hard to tell this year. I’m just not a fan of his personally. Had a better year on the outside last year but still just not worth the money in my eyes. 
    • And to think we could’ve gotten Greedy 
    • i could see us trading down if Newsome is our guy at CB, but we would be lucky to get Jayce @ 21. 
    • I agree with you I want it to be Eason. I've had high hopes for him and just wonder what's going to happen to him if both Weitz and Eason look great nest season. I mean Weitz is 28 and could possibly be our QB for ten or more years so where does that leave Eason if he looks great in the preseason and beyond. I agree!
    • The Colts are in a bit of a rough spot with the DE position with both Autry and Houston free agents.   We need Autry as he is our only alternative to Buckner at 3-tech. The 2020 game against the Titans where we got badly beaten we were missing both Buckner and Autry. My biggest issues with him is he is not all that productive.   Houston is our best DE at the moment and we need his or at least comparable production.   So, do we let them both walk leaving us needing 2 DEs and a back up 3-tech? Do we keep Autry and find a new DE to take Houstons spot? Do we keep Houston and find a new D-lineman to fill Autry shoes or a DE AND a back up 3-tech?   No matter what we either have to luck out in the draft or break the bank in FA.
