I think Indy is actually a good spot for Eason, or more specifically Eason's weaknesses. He doesn't have to worry a lot about protection (once Fisher is back), and he has a lot better pass catching options than he had at WA. And a lot better running game to rely on. So really all those things should help him settle in, and think less. He's never going to be a mobile dual threat guy, and we really don't need him to be. As long as he improve his pocket awareness and settle in with his supporting talent, I think he'd be every bit as good as JB was in 2019.

We have similar thoughts...I believe Eason is in the perfect spot for him as well.  Strong offensive line, strong running game, sound coaching, and a plethora of receiving options coupled with, I believe, to be a strong defense.

Gonna grab a Moore ii jersey soon. 

 

Does anyone know why a lot of the jerseys are not offered in white? 

Politics? lol....

 

I think I'm going to get a Nelson and/or Pittman jersey next time I'm back in Indy.

I prefer the all white uniform. 

I like both but Blue is my choice if I have to decide betwixt them.  It is amazing how that iconic uniform has changed little in all these years.:thmup:

If he can just steadily build/develop, I think he'll make a fine backup QB. Just not sure he has the vision or football IQ to really compete long term at starter. But he does have the physical tools. He can learn the other stuff hopefully.

I hope this idea sticks. We, the fans, loved every minute of it. 

Injured guys like Fisher, Wentz, Moore, Leonard, etc.. should be spending the entire practice signing footballs lol... assuming they've done all of their physical therapy of course.

That was actually pretty decent coverage. A well timed back shoulder is almost impossible to defend, and Pittman has like 5 inches in RYS lol... 

 

It was actually decent, I was just going for the easy joke.  It was a perfect throw to a WR who’s a lot bigger than the DB. 
 

I just hope we don’t see Rock one on one will Julio, DK, or any of those types. He better have safety help at a minimum.  
 

Besides, if that was a real game, Rock would have held him at the start of the route. (Okay, I’ll quit now).

I'm going to guess the team has all the information/input from Dr. Anderson by now.

So the silence at this point might be bad news. Likely trying to decide how to spin things with coachspeak. 

I'm guessing they want Frank to give the news, so they are waiting till Monday.

Kind of like you just need to be a little patient with him. Might take him a week or too to adjust up game speed.

 

 

 


 

People forget that Eason had 0 playing time last year because there was no pre season… Give the dude some time. Lol

Eberflus talked about how he likes what he is seeing from the pass rush but don’t look too much into it. He said the oline can’t block as much when their are no pads. He said until you put pads on it’s hard to tell how good they are doing.

He has basically had no practice reps  since late 2019 at WA. He will continue to get better the more reps he gets and more coverages he sees.  Some of it is just rust. Nothing 6 weeks can’t cure.

Because whites are away jerseys???  Good question.

 

Yeah but why can't I wear an away jersey? I already have a Blue one so I wanted a White one. Just looks different and can be worn with other stuff. Plus I think the white looks super clean. But when I go to buy a jersey the only white one offered is the custom jersey and I don't wanna do that. I just want to be able to buy a white kenny moore jersey. or a hines jersey.

I know Rock gets a lot of slack lol, but him having to defend big guys like Pittman,  or fast guys like TY and Campbell, will help him tremendously. Even reps against big bodies like Patmon and Strachan, or any of the TEs are valuable. But he's just not going to win much when he's trying to defend a perfect pass to a 6-4+ guys. 

Exactly. He'd better be ready for Brown and Julio.

Frank could video chat if that were the driver. 

Very true, we just haven't heard much on frank since they said he was positive which makes me think there is some type of protocol of not having a covid positive person talk to the media. So I'm just spitballing but it seems like they will want Reich to deliver the news and answer questions instead of Flus.

If we could put Eason's arm on Sam's body we would have a pro Bowler...just saying. I think it will be a close battle with Hundly kept as vet backup and Morton on P.S. Eason has more upside but Sam may be able to win games Jacobs cant

I agree, just was trying to give a possible reason?  I am not sure why you can't have both?  It would double sales, lol!

Not necessary Eason can make throws on the move to.

I think it was Ballard that said Frank was asymptomatic and still very involved. He's just involved from home lol. 

I agree though that Reich is the best person to break the news. Or Ballard.

All in all, I think they're simply in no rush to share... And I feel like if was positive news, they would have put it out there already.

Agreed. I think too they may be more patient with this than they were with Andrew Luck. The worst possible thing they could do right now is come out and say everything is fine and put a timeline on it, only for it to go the other way. I feel that’s where they messed up and where Andrew messed up two years ago now.  I’m fine with them slow walking this, as long as they’re up front in the end

Did Eason run the scout team last year during the season?

No it was  Brissett. He really didn’t get any actual practice reps. Most of his was just throwing and warning up.  He might of a couple times  if I recall bur  it was most Jacoby. So really this is the first time he is going up against a defense since late 2019 when he was in college.

Sam has a big advantage in rushing skills, Eason had negative yards per carry in college at minus 1.5 yards and 2 rushing tds while Sam 1,903 yards (3.3 per) and 33 rushing tds. Sam had 36.5 vertical jump vs Jacob's 27.5. Night and day that way but also Sam's ability to read defenses is much better, his experience in games played at the college level also night and day. Jacob has a canon of an arm.......thats what he has over Ehlinger......put that arm on Sam and you have a long time starter and Pro Bowler.....a shame it doesnt work that way. Its going to be a close competition

Over time, I have collected both blue and white jerseys:

#32 - Edgerrin James (blue)

#21 - Bob Sanders (white)

#51 - Pat Angerer (blue)

#56 - Quenton Nelson (blue)

#14 - Bilbo Baggins (blue)

I noticed Strachan making some good catches on the 1 on 1s and Patmon had a pretty good day from what I saw. 
 

The top four are much further ahead though: TY, Parris, Michael and Zach really separated themselves from everyone else today.

Thank you kind sir.

I kinda figured the top 4 are pretty clear. I'm really interested in the 5th and 6th spots. 

Strachan vs Patmon (my money is on Strachan)

and 

Harris vs Dulin (I have zero clue on this one).

I’ll say this: Strachan was noticeable on the field quite a bit. And not just because of his stature. He was turning heads on some of the drills. I hope he continues to put in the work because he’s clearly got the talent.

He just looks physical as hell. And a lot more polished than most guys coming from small schools. 

Patmon to me is more of a glider, and just not a my-ball kind of guy. 

 

I'd love to be able to line up both Pittman and Strachan in the RZ (along with MAC).

It’s going to take a good 2 to 3 weeks to fully evaluate Eason. By the time the panthers practices roll around we will have a much better idea in him.

I don’t think fans will really have an idea of him until he plays a game.  I think the coaches will know a lot sooner.

 

Regardless he has one heck of an opportunity right now and one he might not get again so I hope he takes advantage of it.

I just meant we should see significant improvements by then.  Hopefully the next two weeks we see visible results each day in camp. Then we know he is on a good path.

    • I don’t think we’re giving up a 3 or a 4 for pretty much anyone.   But I think we might give up a 5 or a 6 for a player.       Plus we might do Mack and a pick for a pick.    So, we might.   But in this strange season, nothing would surprise me….     
    • https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/B/BlanRo03.htm   https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/B/BadgMi00.htm   Under the theory that “you don’t lose your job due to injury”, when Blankenship is good to go, he should be the guy. Badgley is kicking well enough that we definitely don’t need to rush Rigo back, and if his injury lingers and Michael kicks for us for the majority of the season, I’m definitely down for a training camp kicking competition between the 2 next year, since they’re basically the same guy, (minus the specs) with similar strengths & weaknesses – the 1 area in which Badgley definitely has the edge though, is in the distance of his career long field goal, which is 59 yards.
    • Darius Leonard has 298 Solo Tackles in his first 49 games played over his initial 3+ years.   Derrick Brooks had 354 Solo Tackles in his first 64 games played over his initial 4 years.   So.......Darius has 15 games to get another 56 solo tackles to equal Brooks. He is currently averaging around 6 of those a game so he should grab about 90 by the time he plays as many as Brooks played over his first 4 seasons.    Man listen, youre just wrong. I dont know what to tell you. You have made all these statements and they are just not true. If they were, Id agree with you. But its just not.   Darius has some weaknesses. But making tackles isnt one of them. 
    • Assuming Wentz turns into a loss of a first round pick the Colts are without a #1 and a #6 but have two #7’s and most likely pick up a conditional pick for losing Brissett and Walker.  I think it’s most likely they get a draft pick for Mack and spend a draft pick on a Dback. Baltimore makes a lot of sense for Mack.  
    • At this point, Rodrigo, but I don't trust him in the clutch.  He feels more like Vanderjagt than Vinatieri.
