^^ You in your Colts blue & white, taking a break from the game.   Good luck in the game!    

Your Indianapolis Colts play the Tennessee Titans in an intra-division game that both teams want to win to remain atop the division. Although both teams have a 7-3 record, the Colts beat the Titans 34

^Closest thing to a ring ceremony the Titans are ever going to attend.

OK.  But I would only do that when and if we’re eliminated.  I doubt Reich would do that even in that circumstance.  But you can’t put a bubble team’s playoff aspirations into the hands of a rookie QB with no game experience.

 

My only point is that I don’t think Rivers is the guy we need.  Not this year and certainly not next year.

 

But it’s hard, really hard (and often involves a stroke or two of sheer luck), to find a franchise quarterback in the NFL.  Realistically, there are only about 7 or 8 genuine studs playing at any one time.  And because the NFL has become such a pass oriented league, the 24ish teams that don’t have one of them are always striving to find one.

I was referring to next year versus trading for Sam Darnold

Hard to call plays, when there’s consistent pressure and your QB has to rush his throws. If we don’t get healthy, see ya next year. And Rock must go.

 

Except his play calling is frequently questionable even with AC.  And the Titans pass rush was not the the biggest reason we lost this game.

Omg this is not a game to be blaming rivers. 

i didnt blame rivers for the game . i said the colts have to keep teams under 30 to have a chance because rivers is old and cant carry a team anymore .  that is not blaming him its blaming the defense .   a QB pushing 40 cannot win shoot outs any more look at brady with 4 pro bowlers on offense looking average .

I feel the need to write down my thoughts so I guess I’ll do so

 

-Rock and Clark suck, ship them off to anywhere not named Indianapolis

-We have to stop our slow starts on D, big holes early only make it harder on Rivers

-We still need a legit stud WR, maybe Campbell?

-Frank still has some trouble with playcalling

-We need Buckner, Autry, and Castonzo back pronto. Also, JT and Kelly would be nice

-We still need to target CB in the draft, unfortunately

-Rivers should get zero blame, dude played his heart out

 

Last but not least

-I hate the Titans

Raiders are losing 43-6 to Matt Ryan, any given Sunday. It could be worse. Imagine how Raiders fans feel with so much promise.

This does make me feel a little better, although now I’m depressed again because my fantasy opponent has Ryan lol

Can’t catch a break today

This year has proven absolutely nothing is normal or makes sense. It’s a difficult year for everyone not named the Steelers or Chiefs...

You are having a bad day all around it sounds like. I won my fantasy league the last 2 years but we didn't play this year. Our usual 12 people didn't want to do it due to Covid, etc.. It took me 5 years to finally win it all but I had Luck and Hopkins in 2018 and had Jackson last year. I was lucky.

If AC really has MCL injury, he is gone. And it sucks.

We can’t go on with Clark. We need to do something. Either move Braden to LT and let Green play RT. Someone said Nelson played tackle some too lol.

I agree. Move Braden to LT, place Green at RT, and sub Pinter in where necessary. We simply cannot keep putting Clark out there

The low IQ fans will do so after every loss.

Really sucks because we got great games from Hines, Rivers, Burton, and even TY(!) but our slow start and missing players sunk us. We need our missing guys back pronto, and if we could see Campbell again sometime this year it would be nice

All Reich said was AC injury was not the worst  scenario. If it’s not bad he could come back and play Sunday with a brace because of his position.

 

If ravens lose to the Steelers we keep that 7th spot. If it gets cancelled a 8th team might be added.

I am still waiting on the day when we have a consistent team who can go out and win 3 or 5 in a row. Hopefully we get this thing figured out in the future. This was just the worst game to have everything happen. We were just starting to come together. 

 

Unless you have a QB like Mahomes it’s hard to overcome all of the things we would of had to today.

Well, I’m sure that option will be within the range of ones in front of the staff.

 

I think it’s promising that they’ve rostered JE and cut ties with Kelly.  That suggests some confidence and optimism.

 

And maybe they’ll surprise everybody and conclude it’s the best option available.  But I wouldn’t be so quick to dismiss the prospect of getting Darnold.

Currently.. 6th.

I was in an area woth bad cell reception, so couldnt keep up on here. Im sure it was a blast.

 

My thoughts:

 

AC injury hurt us big time, things changrd completely after that.

TD at the end of half was huge too.

We were way under manned today, just too many big injuries and players out to overcome.

Refs did us no favors all game. Every big penalty seemed to go against us. I don't know how many times I saw the Titans players taunting our guys way after play. Not a single flag on it.

 

 

Lets be real, when your are missing your 2 best DL and another started in the front 7, coupled with your all pro center and top 10 left tackle...oh and main RB, it os hard to win.

 

Then couple that with Rivers not being a 100%, makes it a tough game.

 

 

Falcons did is a big favor today. Cleveland didn't look very good against Jaguars.

 

 

I still like our chances.

 

On to next week, hopefully we can get some guys back.

Everyone is jumping to conclusions. Wait for the MRI results.  That will tell whether he needs to go on IR (I highly doubt he needs surgery on it though) or just a week or two rest and rehab. I really doubt he plays next Sunday, in any event.

Hmmm...   Nevertheless, the Colts need to take care of their own business, short handed or not.

    • Word is that it's down to Buffalo , Tenn and Cleveland. Also read that there is an offer for around 16 million on the table. I have a hard time believing the Colts would spend that kind of money on JJ as he's getting up there in age . Plus you have the injury history. 
    • Autocorrect got 'em......
    • Looks like the Colts will get 2-3 starters from the 2019 class. Willis has been the best pick so far but Oke hasn’t been terrible.  He needs to keep working on his game to improve on his deficiencies and he will be alright.  The wildcards are Rock and Campbell. One of them will come thru and be a contributing starter. If both work out this is one heck of a draft class. 
    • Yes, I'm willing to give it another year to really judge this class.   I think RYS and Oke can be solid starters for several years to come on this team.  The covid offseason didn't help them at all.     We got good value from Willis later in the draft.  I think we've seen him pretty much hit his ceiling, but he's a solid player and think he can remain solid for a while.   Campbell is a stud athlete and has just gotten downright unlucky with injuries.  He's a high character guy and a solid worker.  If he comes back and can stay healthy, I expect him to be a big contributor to the O.     Speed was very solid on STs last year and I expect him to get LB snaps this coming season, especially if Walker leaves in FA which I think is pretty much inevitable at this point.     I know there were some rumors last year that Banogu wasn't performing well in practice (well 'Flus said this to the media).  I am not ready to give up on him yet, but I don't think he's going to pan out to what Ballard had in mind.     Tell looked very promising as a rookie.  Hopefully when he comes back from opt-out he'll be on the right trajectory and can contribute again.   Green, Barton and Patterson are all still in the league and frankly as 6th and 7th round players, it isn't like we were expecting much from them.     Then, let's not forget we got Ashton Dulin as an UDFA that year.  He's been very solid on STs and though not given much opportunity at WR, he's shown speed and ability to extend the field.  I won't be shocked to see him make the 2021 roster and continue to excel on STs while seeing a bit of an increased role as a WR.
    • There's no doubt that 2020 wasn't the best for the 2019 class. Rock, Banogu and Okereke either stagnated or regressed in their development. They've all got big 2021 seasons ahead. Bobby in particular I'd like to see emerge as a quality starting MLB in this league, he has the ability, but his play was mediocre last year.    I think with Banogu, Ballard just blundered here with this pick. I think he'd admit that, we saw in the 2020 draft him going for experienced established collegiate stars in Pittman and Taylor.  He had the idea of playing Banogu as a hybrid SAM but that never came to fruition, probably because they didn't exactly have a plan or a defined role for him. Now were just have two 3rd down speed rushers (Turay) vying for the same limited number of snaps. So even if Banogu starts improving, he might still have trouble seeing the field. I think if he had any sort of trade value, Ballard would just trade him, or he will just drop him out of the 53, and let someone take him off the roster like what happened with Basham. But hopefully we see something from him this year.   Willis as pretty good this year. He is seems like a hard worker and is improving each season. I like him as the starting SS.   I was really disappointed for Parris Campbell. In the Jags and opening few snaps of the Vikings games, he looked really good and a big part of the offense. The thing about Campbell is that its not because he is injury prone. All his injuries have been in different areas of the body in different circumstances. Knee, hand foot, hernia,.. just downright rotten luck. Hopefully we get him back and playing at a high level.
