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

Coaches can only do so much if your players don’t have the talent to make those plays.

It's actually play calling as much as execution. We rarely blitz vs the rest of the league. We play soft zone and consistently give up too much cushion that allows guys like Minshew, Mayfield, and Burrow to eat us up short to intermediate. For comparison, Pitt killed Burrow last week. They blitzed 59% of the time. We blitz about 10% of the time... They play a lot of press, close to the line, we sit back 7 yards.

I've seen AC get owned a few times. Q, and Glow have looked pretty decent. 

I wish Flus would blitz a little more. We're one of the least blitzing teams in the league.

Today is the perfect time to stunt/blitz.

That is just poor coaching/scheme.  These QBs and route concepts will eat up soft zone when the timing is not disrupted on either end

I do like what I think we've got in JT. Not saying he's ever going to be top tier, but I don't think he has to be.

I think he'll at minimum will be Mack level. I think his ceiling is higher though. He needs some time getting used to our zone scheme. Took Mack a year.

in cover 2 the linebackers have to cover a lot of ground .  he can change the plays , which he refuses to do .  if a offense is killing you in cover 2 change the play

My point is that I don’t think the Colts Linebacker pass playing skills are their strength.  At least not walker and Leonard.

Oke has played far worse this year. More missed Ts, more pass given up. As of Week 5, a ~40 PFF. He's blown coverages today as well. Huge regression from last year. 

He has to be an *. Letting AJ Green go by but go after the RB..... I triple or double coverage  AJ all day. Nope he wants the RB

    • They just beat one that is sometimes in the GOAT discussion. Does thatcount?
    • I'd throw Pittsburgh in there too. 
    • The red zone % can be misleading. Looking at that, one would not expect 7-3.  I find our offensive rz % more concerning than our defensive #. However, ifYOUR offense is in rz more often than opponent, and THEIR offense is kept out of rz more than your offense, you can better afford these #s.   Concerning, yes, but i would argue, at 7-3, there is more going on than rz % by itself. 
    • ? Rivers is the QB and the leader of this team. Yes the strong point of our team is the defense but it it still the offense that scores the points to win.  I agree that no one player is responsible but his veterans leadership means more than you want to give any credit.  Just because he is not a Mahomes or a Wilson does not devalue what he is to this team.  With the help of the defense he pretty much equaled Rogers this last week.  He has already done more for this team than a lot of fans thought he would. 
    • I don’t mean to split hairs....   But while freely admitting 2020 Rivers isn’t 2010 Rivers or even 2018 Rivers, he’s certainly much better than 2019 Rivers.  He’s having a very good year, and he’s doing that without the weapons that other QB’s have.   And he’s doing it without the expected running game until this week.      2020 Rivers is also clearly better than 2019 Brissett, so I’m not ready to discount his responsibility for our current 7-3.  I agree things could still come off the rails.   I agree that the defense and ST get equal or greater credit, but still...   Rivers is driving our offensive train in a way JB could not.  So it feels that at least thru 10 weeks, at least, he’s deserving of more credit than you’re currently offering.    Did I thread that very small needle?
