Well the Colts are screwed. Thats a wrap. The titans are the best team in the NFL, they're going to smoke us.    Frank should forfeit this game.    The season is over too.

Taylor is not the biggest concern. I'm more worried about Kelly. Pinter starting against Simmons. That's a tall task for the Rookie's first start.

taylor should be a huge concern because who he is in contact with , other running backs and QB offensive line men .    taylor practiced friday so the whole team is in danger now .

It’s a matchup I’m looking forward to seeing though. Pinter didn’t have a normal offseason, but he has been with this team for double digit regular season games and had some playing time. I think he could surprise a lot of people.

It would be great if this game was postponed, and became our last game of the season.

 

All NFL fans would benefit from it...

My goodness we were doing so fine with handling COVID. All of a sudden it came down on us like a ton of bricks.


It’s going to impact every team. It’s hitting us now though

But when it impacts (certain) other teams, the NFL reschedules.

After all the cattle feces the Titans got away with in regards to Covid, we should at least be considered for delaying our game. Our two best DL players and our starting RB are out due to this. Meanwhile, Tenn basically ignored all protocols and got away with it back in September. If we win this game without JT, Autry, Buckner, Kelly, and Okereke, we deserve this division.

We are possibly on the verge of the game getting pushed to Monday or Tuesday. If the situation gets worse then who knows?

that wont help at all .  colts already had their bye week so unless they move the playoffs back one week colts have zero shot at getting out of this game .

Yeah. That is what I was referring too. Earlier this year, I heard many people in the media say that the NFL was keeping the option of an extra regular season week on the schedule, and pushing the playoffs back. 
 

I think a case could be made for this game. Plus it’s in the NFL’s best interest. This could be a great game for the extra week. Division title would likely be on the line.

i really hope so , fair is fair .  the titans got a huge break now its the colts turn because another 5 or 6 players could be held out for being in close contact to taylor .    colts already have 3 players on covid list now and a coach and possibly 5 or more players could be in close contact.

This, right here. The NFL did everything they could to protect Tenn for three weeks of Covid, and they have also worked with Baltimore. Somehow I wouldn’t be surprised if we got zero help from them.

if the colts can get by the next two weeks things will go back to normal .   taylor has to be held out for 2 weeks if he test positive and has symptoms.   autry buckner and taylor will be back for raiders along  with bobby and kelly .  this team will be at full strength . the only good thing is titans and texans are beat up also .

With this team practicing together on Friday there is no way this game should go ahead. To much risk.

 

Unfortunately though, I don't think the NFL cares as much as they would want you/us to think.

 

As mentioned before inna different thread, there has been quite a few games that should've been postponed, but they chose to play them as to not effect the end of the schedule.

 

NFL has already closed facilities on Monday and Tuesday because of outbreaks and fear of Thanksgiving cases.

 

 

An additional week is definitely the way to go, unfortunately I don't see it happening.

I am just giving my best educated guess... But if positive cases on the Colts or Titans continue then I think the first step is the NFL would move the game to Monday or Tuesday. Then if the situations gets worse, they might move this game to week 18.

As more info comes in it seems like Colts may not need to play this week.  Seems to be a definite situation that needs to be properly handled before it gets bigger. Hopefully NFL reschedules or cancels this game but like others here it wouldn’t surprise me if the NFL just lets us suffer through it and lose games playing with a COVID depleted roster.  They never do this franchise any favors.

We’re about to find out what kind of depth Ballard has built on this roster... I know they are big hits, but we still have a great deal of our main playmakers on the field in Leonard, Blackmon, Rhodes, Houston. Stewart absolutely wrecked Henry a few times last game. Pinter could be the latest rookie to show his game off in a big game. Taylor obviously hurts after he played well. 
I think we are in for a dog fight, but this game could show how resilient this team really is.

Anyone else concerned about the long term future of Ryan Kelly. Neck injuries are no joke.


Most of the time, he’s out every season with neck injuries, I’m observing. Because of the additional  turnaround between snapping the ball and playing DL unlike other OL, I’d like to guess there’s more whiplash like scenarios for centers more than the other OL.

 

Kelly and Buckner are the 2 biggest losses for this game. If the Titans have wins vs Browns and Ravens and win this game, we’re toast for the division. Our fate will be in the hand of others moving forward if we lose this game.

Stewart benefits from Buckner.

 

This will probably end any hopes of a playoff spot.

Browns and Ravens - only 1 of them make it, a loss in this game closes doors for the division but not playoff spot, IMO

Are you forgetting about the raiders and dolphins. Lol. Raiders are a damn good team. 

 

If this season goes down the tubes because of covid Rivers defiantly needs to come back.

    • Nah, J. Eason is going to pull a Tom Brady and steal the starting job away from Wentz. Wentz will be watching from the bench like Bledsoe did by week 6. 
    • I’m with you,  MIke!   Even being a big admirer of tOSU program.    I also want us to draft another DE as well.    We need to take more swings, take more bites out of the DE apple.     We need to find more pass rush. 
    • I don't completely write them off, but I'm highly skeptical of them, especially when they don't match the tape. And with Jones they don't. In my opinion.  You can find the odd play here and there by pretty much any QB, where makes a play with his feet. Even the least athletic QBs in the league have some base level of athleticism to even reach that level and in perfect of circumstances, when the defense takes a bad angle or whiffs on a tackle you can look mobile. This is not the norm for Jones. Those types of plays are the exception when the pocket collapses.    Agree. Being an athletic QB doesn't guarantee success and being non-athletic doesn't doom you.    He's good enough athlete to play NFL QB. He's not good enough athlete to make plays out of structure and on the move consistently. Which doesn't mean he won't be a good QB... but it means he won't make those types of plays if/when needed.  I don't think we disagree on that. I think he's gifted enough to play well... I don't think he's athletically gifted to be an off-structure playmaker with any sort of consistency in the league. 
    • I don't get this. First, if you're skeptical of the pro day numbers, then just throw out all of this year's testing. I think that's unreasonable. If you want to bump him up a tenth of a second, that still puts him in the same range as those other guys.   Second, watching him play, he has more than adequate movement ability. This has become a meme. He's not Fields or Lance. But even in today's NFL, you don't have to be freakishly athletic to play QB at a high level. He's athletic enough. Another one.    We agree, if I identified Jones as "my guy" in this draft, I wouldn't be moving up to #3 for him. But he's a different kind of prospect than Lance and Fields, and as much as there is to like about those guys, they have question marks of their own. And if they were to struggle in the NFL, it wouldn't be the first time that a tools-y athletic QB prospect fell short of expectations. But I'm not taking issue with Lance or Fields, at all. They should be ranked high this year.   Just pointing out, again, that some of the Mac Jones coverage is unfair. He's being written off as an unathletic, physical dud, and that's nonsense. He has similar or better physical ability as several other guys who have gone top five in recent seasons. Dwayne Haskins and Teddy Bridgewater were physically uninspiring. Mac Jones is a good enough athlete to play NFL QB.   It's fair to say he'll be overdrafted if he goes in the top ten. I'm disagreeing with the idea that he's not gifted enough to play well. 
    • Maybe to #21? With Wentz as our QB, I wonder if Ballard would consider him? .... And Wentz will say "oh boy, here we go again".
