Colts Bye Week Mailbag: Need Your Questions!


Recommended Posts

They had us in the first quarter, not gonna lie.


Anyway, after that dramatic come-from-behind win over the Bengals, how about some questions for the Bye Week edition of the Colts Mailbag? What's on your mind as the Colts' players and coaches (and maybe even their content creators) get a couple days to rest up for the remainder of the season?

Why does Fluse continue to start games playing that soft cover two?  It's picked apart by any half decent QBs. 

 

Why doesn't the defense start the game like they're already behind by double digits?

Why do we refuse to run the slant route?? Ever since Manning it's like we refuse to throw the underneath slant. 
 

Joe Burrow ate us up the entire game throwing the slant. And I think it would help our offense.
 

Also, what is Michael Pittman Jr's timeline for a return??

Do you think the Colts offensive approach will change going forward after the success they had with having Rivers going downfield more? There seemed to be an aggressiveness that was missing the past few weeks until the team fell behind 21-0.

I know we were playing catch up against the Bengals which explains the lopsided Pass Run ratio but is there a reason Colts aren't running the ball a whole lot?

 

Taylor YPC have improved and I strongly believe he could hit 100 if given the carries constantly. 

 

Seems like a different WR or TE is stepping up every week so how do you expect the depth chart to be effected once Pittman returns?

 

Do you think Rivers career numbers qualify him for the HOF? It was a hot topic on the forum this past weekend.

    • Buckner is a freaking monster. Would not have wanted to be that tiny WR trying to get that ball back from Buckner. He’s playing with a chip and I like it No. And he’s wasnt gonna be worth much to trade either. Plus you can’t trade a player on IR. Oh and the trade deadline has passed.
    • I don’t think they want to change the entire offense to suit Taylor this year. It’s not as simple as people think.    
    • Which if he’d had any balls, he’d refused. 
    • By now most should realize the Colts prefer to retain their own as much as possible.  The defense is much improved with the signing in place but always room for improvement at key positions.  Below is my FA/resign list have already put together mid-season.   Colts FA ~58m: QB Jacoby Brissett 21.3 WR T.Y. Hilton 14.5 TE Jack Doyle 8.5 RDE Denico Autry 5.7 ILB Anthony Walker 2.2 S Tavon Wilson 750k DB Tremon Smith 750k (keeper?) WR Marcus Johnson 582k (practice squad) S Malik Hooker 4m WR Ashton Dulin 542k   Resign ~ 90m QB Philip Rivers 26.3m (probably will drop) DE Justin Houston 11m (3-4 good years left like Mathis and Freeny) DB Xavier Rhodes 8m RG Mark Glowinski 6.9 (improved game this year) RDT Grover Stewart 7.5m (most improved player on defense) DE Al-Quadin Muhammad 3m OL Le’Raven Clark 1.2m DB T.J. Carrie 1.2m (special teamer) TE Trey Burton 4.5m S George Odum 1.25 TE Mo Alie-Cox (RFA) – 6.25m DT Taylor Stallworth 1m (otc hit 4.8m in 1 game) LT Chaz Green 850k (special teams) WR Zach Pascal 7m RB Marlon Mack 4m (when healthy proved to be lead back) C Joey Hunt 300k RG Jake Eldrenkamp 200k (special teamer) Edge Cassius Marsh 250k (special teamer) TE Farrod Green 200k (practice squad) S Ibraheim Campbell 200k (special teamer)
    • Originally was thinking we would be closer to 100 mil in cap space but sounds more like 75 mil.  Kind of why for this example only budgeted ~40 mil for FAs after calculating ~95 mil to resign players while leaving a minimum of 20 mil to sign draftees.  This should still allow discretionary cap space for the Club to do as needed short-term.
