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

Classic Bad O calling....2x passes instead of running it....to drain clock

Well that’s the predictable thing to do, so reich trying to buck that and take the risky route on the hot hand. Rivers has got to play better in the 4th. You don’t make that throw

Bad play by Rivers.  Why Frank doesn’t understand that ur playing with fire when you put the ball up that many times with Rivers as your QB is beyond me.

 

Because the defense got you down 21-0 and you didn’t have a choice.

I am really souring on Reich’s play calling.   Now, when you need to run the ball a bit in an attempt to takeover the play clock, two bad pass plays in a row.  This was meant to where Jonathan Taylor takes over. <face palm>

this is the reason people attack rivers .  classic rivers , like romo who could drop 500 yards 6 touchdowns against manning yet throw the game ending pick.

chill.. 

we'd be down 3 TDs if it wasn't for Rivers right now.

that was a pitiful effort by Pascal too.

He’s been chomping at the bit all day to go after rivers.  Awful throw there but let’s not kid ourselves Rivers is the only reason the Colts are in this game.

He is always trying to outsmart someone.

 

Just ends up outsmarting himself most the time.

    • 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? 
    • Liking what I seen and read on LB Cole.  Looks like a good player capable of handling SAM and MLB rotations.
