As long as Taylor keeps testing positive, he should be able to return.

 

Buckner seems to be asymptomatic and eligible to come back in Saturday along with Autry.

 

Colts optimistic that Kelly will be able to play.

 

 

Sorry if already posted, if not Id be surprised 

 

Most likely, but haven't delved through all threads.

 

Things are looking up for Texans game, even more so with Fuller out.

 i hope taylor doesnt keep testing positive bad news

If we lose this week it would be the worst loss of the season IMO, the timing of it would be awful. They have more problems than we have and we do have the better team. Just can't overlook them.

Romeo O Romeo will find a way to lose

For sure, but I do like our chances more with this development to finish the rest of the season 4-1.

Also Roby, their No 1. corner also suspended for the season.  That's two.  Could another be close behind? 

 

Watson would be helpful haha

Huh?

 

WTH?!?

 

I cant tell if this is what you meant to say, or if you expressed it wrong?   But I can’t figure  out what you were trying to say?   Care to take another swing at it?

He made a typo.  It happens,  I did it with Hawkins today rather than Hopkins. He clearly doesn’t mean for Taylor to keep testing positive.

That’s what I thought.   And I clearly understand the concept of typos.   I have way WAY too many in my posts and they drive me flipping crazy!   
 

Byt these days, I never feel confident about what somebody meant to say.   I’ve been wrong in my guesses far more often than I would’ve thought possible.

 

But thanks for the help.   Always appreciated!

I actually had the typo in the OP(and fixed it). I said if Taylor continues to test positive(instead of negative)he should be back.

I agree - If we get Buckner Autry, Kelly and Taylor back.

That's good news. Add to the fact Fuller got suspended and we are looking good vs the texans

I don’t know why so many people point to another team and say we should be in good shape because they are without player/a XYZ. When is the last time the team has taken advantage of a team without their A players on the field. How many third string tackles have we exposed? Then ask yourself the question from our team missing a guy, the position gets exposed. That’s coaching and I’m telling you, Reich just isn’t the guy to get this team into the SB. The seat should start warming up for FR. His team seems very inconsistent week in and week out.

Only in this forum does Franks seat get warm.

 Reich and Ballard are 100% safe but Eberflus could possibly be replaced by next year

Maybe so, but don't get the idea that we would change schemes back to a 34.  It would take more years to rebuild to that again. 

 

We're going to be a 43 zone.  That ship has sailed.

Exactly Frank is going no where.

Frank Reich is a great coach, has the respect of his staff and players. He would be the perfect role model for our children BUT the only scenario that I hate about him is his PLAYCALLING, He has shown some improvement the last 2-3 games but has a long way to go..

Rivers does not seem to have the ability to read defenses, still locks in on the receiver he is going to throw to. AND what is readily apparent they have no concept of a 2-minute offense, no huddle and efficiently using the clock.  I kind of like bringing Brissett in on short yardage situations (why was he not in the game for the 2-point conversion?)  

In my opinion Frank Reich's play calling is the biggest hindrance to this team making the play-offs

True.  Flus may be a hot commodity for head coach somewhere 

 

I actually think we should be able to retain Flus. I see Arthur Smith, OC from Tennessee as a hotter commodity in the offseason, and there will be others sought after as well to where I could see Flus being one of the lower tier candidates.

Please tell me you're not still salty about the titans game. You obviously don't understand Buckner's importance not to mention to importance of Okerke, Kelly, and AC

How is Flus a hot coaching candidate in people’s minds? How many teams are looking for a guy who can’t seem to develop first half plans but adjusts well in the second half? I just can’t understand this theory.

Dude, they were using a third string left tackle if I’m not misunderstanding and we couldn’t offset this? It seems too often everyone just glosses over other teams overcoming their big loss and makes up for it in some way, we always want to use the crutch of well this guy is out or that guy is out. It’s more than Titans game, this team has been a roller coaster ride all year from reading articles and these forums.  Very inconsistent. Did Turay contribute yesterday? Who else went up against the LT spot? Did anyone get pressure on their QB? Apologists in here.

Kevin Bowen mentioned that he has been a name Houston has been following awhile.

If Broncos fire him what about Fangio as DC next year if Colts move on from Eberflus

Fangio runs a 3-4 not Ballard's style

Eh, Fangio's scheme is more of a multiple front where the base run is mostly a 3-4 alignment, but otherwise it's more of a 4-3 under. It's definitely much different than the scheme we run. It's much more complex and has a lot of "if this/then this" components. I'm not entirely sure that a shift to Fangio's scheme would be ideal for the strengths of our defense.

    • Your third paragraph I would agree with and are much bigger problems than yards per completion.     I don’t mean to make it sound like the offense is perfect and the defense isn’t.  I don’t feel that way.  I, like you, think both need to get better.  On defense they need help in the secondary and pass rush and probably another starting linebacker as I don’t expect Walker back.     On offense clearly they need a left tackle but aside from that they need a third down guy like Marvin was for Peyton or Reggie was for Andrew.  A guy the QB knows he can go to on third down no matter what.  Maybe that guy is on the roster and maybe a new QB or true off season with Rivers will let him develop that chemistry with someone.  I also think they need a little more production from Doyle at the TE position and need to move on from Burton.  Lastly, they lack a true number WR hurts the offense.  TY is fading and I don’t think Pittman is ready for that yet.  That might just be some growing pains the Colts have to live with until Pittman takes that roll as I am not sure how much more they are willing to invest in WRs.
    • Ballard spent 2 second rounders on the WR position and 3 second rounders if you count Turay, Lewis and Banogu. Just that we don't have a lot to show for it except maybe Pittman and a little bit with Turay. Either he gets too cute or the quality is not the same as quantity that he thought he was gaining by moving back and gaining picks. 2 average dart throws at the draft dart board is not the same as 1 real good dart throw if that dart throw results in a Pro Bowler at pass rush. If you add RYS and Quincy Wilson, that 2nd round looks not so good on his resume so far with Leonard and Smith being his biggest saving grace to date. 
    • Maybe somebody could explain something  Why does everyone and their mother have the Falcons and Panthers drafting a QB in their mocks?   Falcons due to his contract are most likely stuck with Ryan at least for the next year or two so drafting a QB as high as 4 would be incredibly dumb and the Panthers just signed Teddy Bridgewater to a 3/63 contract. If they weren't that serious about Teddy they couldve just signed him to a 1 year deal.   Both make no sense.  I think the wildcard team that could possibly go QB above us is the 49ers.
    • I feel like people keep trying to box this discussion in...   I don't need the offense to be a quick strike offense that scores 35 a game. And I'm not comforted by the fact that it could get worse.   There are obvious deficiencies with the offense. We were below average on third down and in the red zone.    And of course there are obvious deficiencies on defense. To me, it's clear that we need to get better on both sides of the ball.
