After Today I think we crush Houston

Why?  What did u see today that reasoably indicates a crushing 7 days in the future? Was it pitmanns great hands? Ot Brissetts late game heroics?  Perhaps our o line consistency?

I think they bounce back and other than Watson the Texans don’t have much.

Bounce back with who? Leraven? Pinter?  0ur d line sucks wo autry ans bruckner.  Our running game is already anemic with our best o line, well be missing 2,  Taylor may be out still.....Rivers played like a bonehead today......it was the ravens game again....

We will probably play like week-old sewage again, but fortunately for us we are playing the Houston Watsons. They have literally nothing but Watson, and I guess Watt. Taylor will be back, Autry will be back, Pinter did well today.

I think it all depends on Injuries and Covid. Even with a subpar team, we can fieldgoal our yway to Victory against the Texans. Just have to hope the Browns can keep it up and the Raiders don't get a magic chip on their shoulder. 

 

RIP to our running game if AC is out for good. Hines can't fly over 11 players by himself! Can't believe Mack went down Week 1...

Already predictions? 

Can we at least hear what Dakich, JMV,coach Venturi say first? haha

 

Seriously, I like listening to Venturi.  Does anyone know which days he comes on Dakich or JMV???

Dakich is a blow-hard imo. Venturi is good though

Idts. The only thing that bothers me is he doesn’t complain to refs about bad calls etc.  I think we have a good one in him.   

I dont think think you're allowed to show dissent.  I love reich  but he regularly outsmarts himself.

Don't forget. Without AC getting in the way "sometimes", the passing game will get worse. Who is his backup?

Texans 27 Colts 9 (three field goals on 9 possessions to the red zone.) It is funny how RB was the deepest position on the roster, then, ............

Not Buckner he has to be out for two weeks minimum .   He tested Wednesday 

Is that set in stone?   Even if he has 2 negative tests?   That will suck.

I'm waiting on the prediction till I find out who we will be missing.   Buckner is the biggest piece with Autry and Kelly at #2.

Not sure that is true. If he tests negative by Saturday I think he can play.

Yes Saturday if he has no symptoms. To bad we don’t know if he does. It’s cutting it close with them leaving for Houston Saturday.  Hopefully Autry is ready to go.

He doesn't have time to complain - he has his face in that play card.  

right.  i don't like that.  he should be more of a game manager.  be involved in play calling but leave most of that to the oc.

    • I have no idea if this is 100% true, but I believe Ballards intent was to re-sign Autry and Muhammed, and let Houston go for a high compensatory pick. Think about it, we already re-signed Muhammed. Before that, we tried to get Autry back, and he went with the Titans. Autry is younger, and he signed for 3 years $21,500,000. Houston is older, and will probably sign for a bit more a year. That means we would of not only got a younger player at EDGE, but we would of got a higher compensatory pick in that scenario.   Now Ballard didn't get Autry, is probably going to get a 5th for him or something along those lines, and has to decide whether to re-sign Houston for more, who is older, and not get the higher pick for him. After the draft, I believe you don't give or receive compensatory picks for signing FA's or getting your own signed. So that comes into play as well. Ballard has a big decision here, and he knows better than us if Houston is getting interest elsewhere right now, or if it's worth it to sign him for another deal.    Heck, Ballard may be interested in an EDGE rusher on day 1. Never know. We'll see.  
    • Would be a good deal for the Pats, not the most unbelievable trade either.
    • You ask a lot of good questions.    Unfortunately, I don't think that I, or anyone else,  has a lot of good answers.   Here's what I think we know.   Over The Cap has the Colts with just over $26 Mill.   Spotrac shows less,  and after the Carrie signing, I think we're going to be at $22.4 or so.   I also think we'd like to find a way to thread the financial needle and sign both Houston and Ertz (as a FA).   Even if you allowed $12 Mil for that, (Houston $7 mill and Ertz $5m)  that would leave us with roughly 10-$12 mill, give or take.   Currently, with our 6 picks,  Spotrac shows that will take roughly $6.5 to sign them.   But we all know Ballard has never had a draft class with less than 8 picks,  so expect two more, and that will bring the money needed to sign them to roughly $8 Mill.   Suddenly, we'd be down to $2-4 Mill and change.   Now, this is the part, where I don't know if @w87r  will step in for more financial adjustments that will show that we will have a few more $ than my math shows.    He's a wiz that way!      But typically, teams want 5-10% in reserve for in-season transactions.   BUT....   can you afford to have that much in reserve when your cap has shrunk to $185?     Yes?    No?    I don't know?     Who knows?   So....    lots of questions that need answers....    and we just don't know?    Both Houston and Ertz look like situations that might not resolve themselves until May......    So, we're left hanging....  
    • I vaguely remembered something like this but misremembered that I saw it on Hard Knocks so figured it couldn't haven't been the Colts.   Now that you mention this though, I think you're right.
    • OK....    I thought what I was saying was pretty obvious, but perhaps not,  so I'll try again....   If Chris Ballard wants to blow up and destroy everything he's spent the last 4 years building, I can't think of anything that would do it better than what you suggest.   I'm NOT saying CB should give Q and Darius blank contracts and say "fill in with the numbers you want"....   but CB will re-sign them and they will be big and generous contracts done without a lot of public fighting (unless someone gets WAY out of line with what they're asking.   But I'm not expecting that.)   Ballard has built a franchise built on culture.   We talk about here.   The team talks about it non-stop.    It's buzzing all over the city of Indianapolis.   It's even now buzzing around the NFL.    To suddenly play hardball with your best players, or worse,  trade them because they don't play the right position,  would literally destroy what he's built.   Blow-up the locker room.  Undercut  the relationships Frank Reich has with his players.   The rest of the team would see how we treated Q and Darius and think....   "why should I play hard for this franchise?   F*** them!   I'll ask to be traded the first chance I get."   In case you haven't noticed,  players demanding to be traded has caught on in the NFL.   It's not just for basketball or baseball anymore.   Ballard would lose all credibility with everyone.   He'd have wasted his 4 years here.   Reich would be screwed.   The front office would be furious.   Irsay would likely want to fire him.   It would destroy this franchise.   Final thought....    since you love to throw around what Belichick does....    deal with this...   when the Patriots were winning Super Bowls and making deep playoff runs year after year...     do you know who some of the top players were, besides Brady?     Logan Mankins,  offensive guard.   Rob Gronkowski,  Tight End.    Vince Wilfork,  Nose Tackle.  Donte Hightower, Inside linebacker.    Four key players.    All paid very well.    All Belichick favorites.    None, with the possible exception of Gronk played a sexy, glamour position that you obsess about.       I expect to agree with NONE of this.    But as someone who covered the NFL for 30 years as a member of the media,  and has followed football as close as I could for 25 more years (55 in all)  this is my judgement what would happen if Ballard would do what you suggest.     Sorry.    Good luck.....
