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.

    • I could see Eichenberg stepping in on day 1 and play decently, but those other 2 absolutely need time to develop. Hopefully Tevi ends up playing well and nobody gets thrown into the fire too soon.
    • Do I think Smith is going to ask for Quinton Nelson money?    No.   I don't.    And I don't think it will be close,  but I've been wrong before.     For what it's worth,  Ballard has said it this off-season,  and I think he has said this every off-season.   They monitor their salary structure every day.    And not just for the current year.     It's projected for that year, and the next,  and the next after that.   So, for a 3-year window,  we have a good rough idea where our money is going to be.   Frankly,  Kelly has 3 more years on his 4/50.   After that, he'll either be re-signed for a 1 or 2 year deal, or will be allowed to leave.    And Pinter, or someone else will take over.     It's not like you or me or anyone else here have thought of things that Chris Ballard and his team have not.   CB doesn't smack himself in the forehead like a V-8 moment!    They are so far ahead of us it's not even funny.    No one here has thought of anything that they haven't already thought of a long time ago.     That's you speaking.    And there are some here who agree with you.   I'm just not one of them.
    • Moosejaw, you are too caught up in your positional rankings. Some players transcend the normal thinking, and certainly, Q is one of those players. He has elevated the entire O-line with his play, and he allows the Colts to have a good vs great LT next to him. He has value far beyond his being a LG, and I would venture to say he would be paid top dollar by every team in the League. If I'm right, and I think I am, then your argument re: Q fails.  As for Leonard, although you have a point about him being less than all pro caliber in his pass coverage, you also have to agree that he is the spiritual leader of the D, and brings many other intangibles to his LB play that make him worth a big salary. Should he be the highest paid LB in the league? No. Should he get top 5 $? I'm ok with that. 
    • I loved it too,  but frankly, I was expecting to see and hear from Polian.   How hard is it to do a zoom interview these days?   I'm assuming he's healthy and would gladly do it.    It reflects well on him, so I'm curious why we didn't hear from Bill?   I also wish we'd have heard from Edge himself.   Was he surprised?   Did he know he was going to be our pick?   Etc.   I love the piece,  because it was a big shock when it happened.    And the Colts were proved to be right.   Mad props to them!!  
    • I also think the important thing to remember is that linebackers in this system can b found in later rounds. They r basically lighter and safeties playing linebacker. Can we replace Leonard? Probably not. However, I would b willing to draft a 2nd or 3rd round linebacker who maybe functional rather than pay a WSL crazy money.
