Not too bad for a team with a GM who doesn’t know what he’s doing, a coach who can’t coach, a QB who had a noodle arm and can’t throw, a Number one WR who can’t play anymore, and an oline that isn’t g

Plus some of those rush yards were in garbage time. I thought we did relatively well against the rush. Henry is the top power back. He’s going to get yards. We kept him from breaking the game and that

Very nice win’

 

Defense stepped up!

 

Special teams came thru

 

Offense kept converting. We need to fix the redzone issues. Man PA bootleg or rollouts would be deadly for this offense.

 

Hot Rod made all his kicks!

 

Rest up and stay COVID free pls.

 

Hope Kenny Moore is okay

Our whole team played complementary football tonight, and it was beautiful. 
 

Pittman shone bright, Hines scored twice, defense and special teams put the game on ice. 
 

Great job and great win Colts! :colts:

Good game but we gave up 160 yards of rushing. Need to clean that up 

 

103 from Henry. Not exactly easy to stop.

Hopefully  we can stay in first  by beating  greenbay 

If we some how can win the next two, I think we’d all but lock the division up

Rib injury. That’s why Carrie played so much 

When did he go down?

Big Grover was all over the place in the first half.  Looked like Buckner also had a good game, but I'll have to look at the tape.  I hope Pittman is okay.  Heard a lot of names on the O this week.  Rivers was playing with a lot of his toys.  Love to see it.  Looked like Pittman was catching with a lot of free space.  YAC was awesome!

They said "Why can't we find a better QB" ?

 

But tonight Rivers was masterful !!

 

I want every Rivers critic to give Rivers some love tonight !!

Rivers is up and down, but tonight he played great!

Can't we ever run play action inside the 5 yard line instead of just running up the middle every time?

Pittman is fine. He was back in the game on the last  Colts drive and got an extra reception to put himself over 100 passing yards. I think he just got the wind knocked out of him.

Lol, why do you have to say that now, let me savor this. Seriously though, it shows how tough this stretch of the schedule is. We take the lead in the division but two weeks from now we could be playing them again once again looking up at them with a chance to take the division again. But agreed, I hope we can best GB, it would be huge. This conference is getting competitive getting into the second half of the season. We need wins against great teams.

He got a helmet south of the boarder if your picking up what I am laying down.  I’d still be down if it was me lol.

430 yards of offense. I think only two media people picked the Colts. I admit I was upset with Rivers when he hesitated to throw to his receiver in the end zone. A couple gifts tonight but they are a part of the game. Repeat at Indy in two weeks.

Oh that had to hurt. Well, he was still in on the last Colts drive and got a reception to get over 100 passing yards for the day, so he should be ok.

Rodgers will eat a soft zone alive.  Here's to bringing some pressure.

It happens.  The Steelers were/are a better run defense than us and they gave up 225 to the Ravens.

Doesn't mean we've all of a sudden forgotten how to defend the run.  Or that they exposed some

kind of secret on us.  We'll get things back together against Green Bay.

I don't recall seeing Dimichael Harris tonight.

Yep.  Pittman has played really well the past two weeks.  I think he’s finally getting comfortable in the offense and the NFL.  I also think having TY back helped.  He might not have had a huge game catching the ball but he opens things up for others.

Looks like Ballard made a nice addition with Carrie to be Moore’s backup. Hopefully Kenny isn’t out to long. We still need to do better st play calling in the red zone. Those Titans special team error are pretty much why we won. Not sure we would of otherwise with how bad the red zone was.

    • They are likely kicking the can down the road, and the negative consequence is higher cap numbers for those players in future seasons, and greater cap penalties to move on from those players in future seasons. The thing is there's no much else they can do. they're set to be nearly $70m over the cap in 2021, and other than these restructures, they would not be able to get under the cap by the start of the new league year. They would have to cut or trade all of their highly paid players.
    • I feel the hype about Carl Lawson is from a combination of people who haven't really watched him play, and who overrate "pressures" by assuming that all pressures are equally disruptive.    Lawson is a tough, physical, high effort guy, he tackles well, plays the run reasonably well, he has decent size, and he would fit nicely as a DE for us. He's not a dynamic pass rusher, and I don't think he ever would be a dynamic pass rusher.   He has some quickness and speed, good speed to power, but he's not the kind of explosive pass rusher that blows up the other team's blocking schemes. He has below average bend and closing speed, and he takes a lot of steps, which explains his tragically poor three cone. He also has below average length, and gets neutralized by good blockers. This is all obvious on his tape, it was obvious on his college tape, and it's why he went in the 4th round.   TomDiggs mentioned Lawson's knockdowns/hits and hurries. PFF recorded six edge rushers with at least QB 15 hits; despite the fact that Lawson had 24 hits, he only had five sacks, which is the least sacks among those six players. In fact, there were ten edges with fewer than 15 QB hits, but with at least ten sacks. PFF has 24 edges with at least 30 pressures; Lawson had 34 hurries, but was tied for fifth fewest sacks among those 24 players. In fact, there were five edges with fewer hurries than Lawson, but at least ten sacks.   My point is that QB hits and pressures only show a player that manages to get near the QB at some point during the play. Without context, they don't necessarily show a player that makes a definite impact on the play. That's why I value PFF's pass rush productivity (PRP) stat, because sacks are weighted more heavily than hits and pressures. And that makes sense because a sack ends the play. A QB can be pressured, even hit, and still make a positive play. Recognizing a sack as nearly always a negative play for the offense, PRP shows the difference between a guy who gets near the QB, and a pass rusher who makes plays for the defense. Sometimes the overlap is not as great as you might think.   Lawson's PRP was 8.5, tied for #18, well separated from guys like Bosa (10.6) and Watt (9.7). In general, a player with a bunch of total pressures, but low sack numbers, like Lawson, is a guy who gets a bunch of pass rush snaps but doesn't have the length, bend and closing speed to get home often enough. This is why guys like Trey Hendrickson and Leonard Floyd can have a third fewer total pressures, but twice as many sacks as Lawson (Hendrickson also had 80 fewer pass rush snaps). And Lawson gets a ton of pass rush snaps because he plays for a bad team with no other good edge rushers, so as long as he's healthy he'll have a lot of pressures, but he'll probably never be a big sack guy.   He's Trey Flowers. Better 40, same agility, not as long, mid level edge rusher who is well rounded and a good guy to have on your team, but not a dominant pass rusher. I can't see offering him $14m/year to not sack the QB. Any projection that has him as a big time sack guy is unrealistic, IMO.
    • It's nice to see Pittman, Smith and Okereke get some love.
    • Did I misread your post?   Did you not say you were in favor of moving Nelson to LT?   That if we’re going to pay him top dollar, it would be better to do it with him as our LT instead of at LG?    That wasn’t you?    I’m sorry, I thought that’s what I responded to.... 
    • With me, road whites are off-limits.  As to the blue tops, as much as i do dig the color rush blues, I’m an old-school-uni guy, and would lean to white pants.   I’m in Penn State country, and there are some similarities i guess.   I do think improvements can be made in the striping.  Minimal enough cahange to keep purists happy, but could “update the uni.  Perhaps 3 stripes down the leg and middle of helmet.  Middle one thicker than sides.  Not crazy wide.... tasteful like the stripes on a shelby. The middle stripe could be horseshoes similar to the way seattle uses imagry.  Maybe a large horseshoe on each shoulder that circles down around the number.  Minimal...... but updated..... without losing the “brand.”   Remember that outdated font that was recently retired?  A small “refresh” might be nice.   I’d like to see a “ghosted” image of like padding texture or like metalplate image (barely noticeable) at shoulder pads, knee and thigh pads.  Like a 3d effect.   I remember oregon once had ghosted wings on the shoulders that were cool, bit not “too much.”
