This isn’t something unique to the Colts.  This is what the vast majority of teams struggle with.

 

I think the only OL who didn’t get flagged today was AC.   Otherwise, Q, Kelly and Glow earned plenty of laundry.   It wasn’t just Clark and Green.   Just saying. 

Maybe we should have our OL guys wear gloves the same color of the opposing jerseys every week.  Might cut down on the holding calls?

Is Smith the one who got stitches in his hand this week from practice?

Did something during practice but I did hear what. He did end up having minor surgery from what they said in the pregame

I hope it's not something that will cause him to miss multiple games. He was sorely missed today.

 

He was only questionable yesterday, so unless something really crazy happened overnight, he should be back next week I would think.

I'm guessing they want the stitches to fully close up the wound, and they usually are fine within 5-10 days.

 

so, i would assume so

Got to watch the replay now that I've fully recovered from that game. I didn't think Green was so bad, but that could have been a delusion. 

If I’m not mistaken, Green had one holding call early on and that was it. He played ok. Not great but ok. Clarke sucks.  The rest of the OL looked way out of sync tonight

OL are not like Running backs or even Wide Receivers where solid depth isn't actually that hard to come by.  That's why a major part of our OL being dominate is that our starters don't miss too many games.

Le'raven Clark should never be on an NFL team

Remember how everyone kept saying that he just needed time lol? People thought LT wasn’t it but he’d be fine at RT...well that didn’t work either. Should’ve kept Haeg tbh

Green played absolutely amazing! If he played decent or okay, in my book that is amazing! We didn’t need him to play great he’s a backup.. we just needed him to play decently good, Which he did! As long as he wasn’t playing like Clark did during Cleveland he did a great job! A decent job for green is all we were looking for which makes it absolutely amazing !! :td:

    • A lot depends on what else besides our first we’d have to give up?    
    • Not sure how I feel on all the Rodgers stuff, but I did say in another thread I could see him in SF. I think it's way too early to make any definitive calls. I think Rodgers was just on TV today downplaying his post game comments. If I were him though, I'd definitely be looking to pull a Brady and find a sunny destination that wants to go all-in.   I really like Miami for Watson. Not sure I like Watson for Miami though lol... If I were Watson, it would be my preferred landing spot. No way I'd go to NYJ over Miami. Carolina or LVR would also be good spots. I'm sure Gruden would be happy to trade Carr and draft capital to get Watson.
    • He may have very well moved the franchise either way but by declaring Eminent Domain it forced his hand to do it.  Again I am not defending Bob Irsay, man was a horrible owner and I am so glad his son is nothing like him.  I am just saying the city forced his hand rather he was going to do it or not.  Irsay is clearly not blameless in this but neither is the city of Baltimore.  There is a reason no other city has tried that after Baltimore did.  They learned the lesson.  
    • I could actually see Watson going there, I never believed Tua would be great either. Too injury prone for one and as a rookie he didn't look good. Fitzpatrick looked better IMO. 3 scenario's I could see playing out are Watson gets traded to Miami, Rodgers gets traded to SF, and Stafford gets traded to us. We will see how accurate I am with this, Rodgers may even retire? I don't see him playing another game another game in GB, his body language after that loss was bad.
    • Here's the Lions team needs (farther below), so Oke would fit the bill. Given his performance and PFF though this year, not sure he'd be something that tilted the scale. If Carolina, Denver, Dallas, or San Fran wanted to be players, we'd have to make up a decent delta between draft picks. So for instance, if Detroit's asking price is a first, and next year's second,   San Fran's #12 is basically worth our #12 AND our #54 out of the gate. And we'd still have to give them next year's 2nd. Oke isn't worth a #54 IMO. Rock might perk their interests given CB is a primary need. It's a decent draft for CBs, so not sure he'd close the gap either. Also something to consider, Detroit's cap space is about zero. They'd save of course 20ish by letting Stafford go, but still won't be looking to spend big (so our rooks, on rook deals, might be attractive).   Primary - QB, WR, CB Secondary - LB, IDL, OT, LB, IDL Ancillary - WR, S, EDGE No need - TE, RB   Here are the teams and draft pick that could be looking for a QB before us 8 Carolina 9 Denver 10 Dallas 11 NYG 12 San Fran 15 Pats 19 Wash 20 Chicago   Bears and Giants are in the negative on cap space, Panthers don't have a much (5.5). San Fran 9.3, but they'd save by cutting Jimmy.
