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

    • I’ve played. The thing with this kind of stuff is that if you’re given the chance to get the ball and make a play, you sometimes open yourself up to getting hit, quite hard. This could have been one of those things where he was extremely motivated to make a big play after a disappointing rookie year.    Honestly a lot of high school programs focus on that killer “tough guy” instinct, and a little less on ways to protect yourself. It’s gotten better over the years, but that mindset is still fairly prevalent.    It also doesn’t help that NFL defenders are built like small trucks colliding into ball carriers. I can’t imagine how that feels, and I still remember the feeling of getting hit as a running back in high school. 
    • Why you feel the need to point out something that is a nonissue to everyone is a mystery known only to you.    No wait, we all know.  Its because you like to patrol the board and attack anybody whenever you think you have an opening.
    • That only really happens when the younger players aren’t ready to take majority of the snaps. If the Colts had an edge rusher they felt could generate the pressure the Houston or Autry have, he’d move on from them. Ballard isn’t shy about cutting veterans if the young guys can go. You saw how he did it with Desir and Hunt.
    • I think we moved up 2-3 places to get Lewis.   I think we gave up a 5 to get him.   Why this is  an issue for you 2.5 years later is a mystery known only to you.   But here you are bringing up a non-issue.
