Passing O was great. Run D was great.

 

Passing D was iffy, and running O was inconsistent. 

 

OL did much better IMO pass pro than getting a push for the run game.

 

Rivers did put up impressive numbers, I must check the avg. yard/carry by our RBs. It still bogs me how could we allow big competitions in +&long situations. It has been a problem since 2012, or at least I think so.

Dude's played 7 games, give him some time.  He could develop ot he could bust, far too early to have any "take" imo.

When comparisons of Saquon are on this board (2018 rookie of the year) and predictions of 1200+ yards rushing. I think a take of being very underwhelming is warranted.

Key phrase "on this boad".  The most hyperbolic place in the multiverse......its ok to be underwhelmed but setting your expectation based on a message board with less than half a season actually played seems like jumping the gun.  Kid's 21 and admits his vision isn't up to his own standard.  Who gives a * who message boards compare him to?

True but the bend don't break is what lets other QBs get the stats. 

I know you are a stat freak but stats don't tell the whole story.

 

Bend don't break, broke plenty today. Gave up tons of short passes, and even a few deep ones. We were just blessed to get up early and make them one dimensional. Our run D did well early before they abandoned it. 

 

We actually blitzed more today which is good, but the secondary had some major issues at times. We very lucky the clock ran out on them at the end of the 1H as they were rolling. We could have easily been down 21-20 in the 3rd. I'm just happy for the the time running out, and happier they missed the FG too.

 

Then add in the Lions fumble when they were knocking at the door on our 25 (when we only had a 6pt lead), and the pick 6 that flipped things. In short, we had some stuff fall our way today. The stats are the stats. Our DBs regardless of stats weren't very good at times.

this is the second very nice game in a row for Rivers. Very impressed with him using 11 different pass catchers. He get's through reads/progressions so fast. Seems like he's really settling down.

 

Our y/c was bad. The late stuff by Wilkins made it look better than it was. Our OL just couldn't make holes early on. 

 

I think we were lucky Golladay was out the 2H.

Our defense forced the fumble and had the pick six.

They also had 5 sacks. 

We gave up a 73 yard freak play on a rookie mistake. Yes it happened but take that play away and the stats would look a lot different.

Zone defenses do give up numbers. 

You said stuff fell our way? Well IMO, our defense made things fall our way.

Our front 4, and blitzing made things fall our way.

When I'm talking about bend don't break, I should have said DBs. 

Even if you take away the big play (which that's not how it works), it's still a bottom 10 type of performance in terms of yards.

    • Ballard and Frank are always talking team fit, who fits your team best.  Jenkins seems like a good fit to me, and will likely be available.  
    • No team in their right mind would trade for Watson. I’d bet money the Texans will out right cut Watson, sooner or later.    Months ago he demands a trade and now that he’s in deep doo-doo, you think the Texan’s want to deal with mess. Hell No! 
    • Some of the recent posts remind me of a comedian back in the 1970's Flip Wilson, who used a catchphrase "The Devil made me do it".  He built a whole routine around the concept of a person or people blaming another (usually someone in authority) for their own bad acts.  It was funny then, because that was back when people made fun of a person like that instead of supporting the concept.   It will be interesting to see the outcome of the legal battles.    I can't see a team trading much for him during this time.  It doesn't seem to be getting better.
    • 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
