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

This needed to happen the colts were to content thinking they were a aging QB away from being a superbowl team .  Ballard thought since jacoby was so bad and AV missing 15 kicks that with rivers the team would be elite .   This is why i am for starting eason because the colts are not a playoff team .  Let him just get some reps in , if he looks good it can give the team energy .

Our D is again, Charmin soft.

I called it in the matchup thread this week. I called it last week. 

 

Philip is 3 for 3 for those that can't help bashing him.... Good grief he has zero to do with what is happening. 

 

 

This is exactly why looking at stats/highlights isolation can be misleading.  Defense lays a total egg so far and that puts more pressure on an offense that basically has minimal firepower for big plays

Do I think Andrew Luck could take this team to a Super Bowl the way they are playing right now?  Not even a chance.  So far today Rivers play hasn’t been a factor one way or another.  In fact the short passes from the QB is the one thing that’s gone well so far.


So I think we can both agree the defense absolutely stinks today haha

I hate the up and downs of the Colts. It's so inconsistent. 
 

I agree with everybody tho. Even our play calling is adjusted for Rivers' weak arm. We consistently throw 3-5 yard routes. It's not fun to watch

reich can only call  a very limited offense with short passes .  teams know this and play the run and press our wrs .   Rivers is holding back the offense

doesn't matter. he's not the problem. his check downs average 9 yards a piece. 

and do you see how close Cinci is playing up on, and pressing our pass catchers. 

that is not, Charmin soft... 

Rivers isn't the direct issue today but they know he can't push the ball and our WRs aren't very good. Also there is no threat of the QB escaping the pocket when bringing pressure of playing man

Without a doubt.  Anyone who still thinks this defense is elite is kidding themselves.  Yet if they come out and play well in the second half and Rivers throws a pick it will be all Rivers fault and there will be a thread talking about how great The defense is.

I don’t know if it’s the alcohol clouding my judgement, but I’m starting to move to this opinion as well. The team is trash today. Getting blown out by the young and inexperienced Bengals with one of the worst offensive lines in the nation. 
 

It’s as you say, we’re very boring, even in the games we win.

All the nonsense excuses about our great locker room are getting tiring.  Theres issues here that are not getting fixed.  Primarily at QB.  I still blame the * that waited until the last possible minute to bail.... Rivers ain't it.  I just wish we'd pull the plug on that mistake faster than we did JB or AV.....but, they won't..... God knows how long were gonna ride this out, only difference is it looks like the team has actively given up on Phil....

Colts looking really sharp, now we have to rely on Rivers the rest of the game. . . 

Yet everyone will ignore what put them in that position and only focus on the INTs he inevitably throws when the other team knows he has to take chances.

    • There is speculation that the Eagles are interested in Watson. I thought that they were going with Hurts, but have to see how that works out. 
    • At this time of year, every year, all of us have created a draft board.  How we think the draft will fall out.  Most of us also have a selection of players from that draft board that are the ones they especially like.  These are My Guys. I would like to issue a challenge.  Go back through your records for every year, and find:  A - your best draft prospect, B - your worst draft prospect, C - any of your prospects the Colts took, D - a late round prospect of yours that blossomed.   I'll start out with mine:   2015 Best - Andrus Peat, T, Stanford (Saints #13 overall, 3 pro bowls) Worst - Reese Dismukes, C, Auburn (undrafted, went nowhere) Colts - Zack Hodges, OLB, Harvard (UFA, didn't stick) Late - Tevin Coleman, RB, Indiana (Falcons #73) 2016 Best - Ezekiel Elliot, RB, Ohio St (Cowboys #4 overall, 3 pro bowls) Worst - Su'a Cravens, S, USC Colts - Ryan Kelly, C, Alabama (Colts #18 overall) Late - Joe Schoebert, LB, Wisconsin (Browns #99, pro bowl) 2017 Best - Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson (Texans #12, 3 pro bowls) Worst - tie John Ross, WR, Ohio St / Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama Colts - none Late - Dan Feeney, G, Indiana (Chargers #71 overall) 2018 Best - Quentin Nelson, G, Notre Dame (#6 overall, 3 pro bowls) Worst - Arden Key, DE, LSU Colts - Quentin Nelson, G, Notre Dame Late - Kyzir White, S/LB, West Virginia 2019 Best - AJ Brown, WR, Mississippi Worst - Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson Colts - Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Temple / Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio St Late - Terry McLauren, WR, Ohio St 2020 Best - CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma Worst - Denzell Mims, WR, Baylor / Calvin Throckmorton, T, Oregon Colts - none Late - too soon to call
    • I think the Rams over paid but it’s still a win win for both sides. If the Rams get back to the SB it will be worth it, even a couple NFC championship games would justify the trade...if they win a championship it will definitely be worth it.  Detroit now has the ammo to help build a playoff contender. They won’t bc it’s Detroit lol but it was still a good trade by them. One of the few QB trades you see where both teams will probably come out ahead.    When I compare it to the Wentz trade, Ballard took the Eagles to the cleaners and got the better of the two QBs they had. Interested to see what Sirriani can do with Hurts.  That kid seems to be a class act. The way he handled being replaced by Tua was professional in every way.  I remember the reporter asking him 3min after the championship game vs Georgia ended how he felt being replaced and seeing Tua go out there and bring the team back.  I thought it was slimy to ask that question at that moment(should have waited until the press conference and let the kid celebrate with his team) and Hurts handled it with class. Stayed for another year, came in and I believe won the SEC championship for Bama then transferred after he graduated. I’m rooting for the guy and feel for him bc the Philly press and fans can be a bit harsh to say the least lol. 
    • At this point I wouldn't mind that. Seems like a good realistic scenario. Although... maybe Turner has moved up with his testing?
