How many starters will play against Carolina

Reich said Eason will most likely play a entire half. Do you think he will have some starters in there to start the game Sometimes they don’t even dress or play a snap in these first preseason games. How fair will it be to judge Eason without some starters in there?

Reich did mention Carson would of probably taken ten snaps. So maybe that is what we can expect from the starters outside of Eason. I guess it won’t matter because Carolina probably won’t play starters that much if at all.

The starters typically play the first drive so I assume most if not all will be on the field.

Our O Line is already down 3/5 of the projected starters, if you count Fisher.  I would hope they keep the best O line group in the entire time Eason plays.  If that's the entire first half, so be it.  Those guys need work too.

 

As for the rest, most of last years starters don't need to be in more than a quarter if that much.  We know what we have with them.

No point risking another foot surgery do not play the starters at all

No, vets need the reps too. Everybody gets rusty; live action gets 'em ready. Just don't leave them out there past the first quarter or so.

Eason is not a starter and never has been. Put him in because as some posters say he is the guy for 2021. HA-HA-HA

At this point, it looks like 19 of our 22 starters ought to play against the Panthers.  Of course, you never know.  Last time I attended training camp, I watched Parris hurt himself.  And I'm going to be there the 12th and 13th.  Will I jinx the team again???

Good question. Seeing what Eason has throws things out of wack a bit. He needs the work as Reich said, but without the ones, what do we really learn? I'd go with first Q.

I guess it really won’t make much of a difference if he is playing against the panthers twos. But it’s so hard to gauge anything. Some of the starters I bet don’t even make the trip or play. But Carolina will be doing the same thing.

I just realized the colts have a little over 2 weeks from their last preseason game until game one. That usually doesn’t happen. Maybe that is a good thing to get Q and Carson closer to being ready go start. Also gives coaches a good amount of time to develop a good game plan in Wentz can’t go.

I think the odds are 1,000 percent that Frank will be fair to Eason.   He will note how many of our first team players are out for whatever reason.   He will note if Eason is supported by 2nd string and are facing Carolinas 1st string.

 

No one has more invested in the success of Jacob Eason than Frank Reich.   He will be as fair as humanly possible.

It’s not some posters saying.   It’s Frank Reich, the head coach of the Colts.   He has literally said it’s Eason’s team for now.   That means until he loses the job, which he may or may not do.   But we will let him try to prove himself.   Laugh all you want…..

Yeah, "..his team for now." That is really loaded with confidence.

It’s as much as Eason can reasonably expect. Notice we haven’t gone out and traded for another QB right now,  you know, as some (well, one) poster is demanding.    
 

The clock is running…..    he’s got three ore-season games to show us what he can do, or not.    In three weeks we will know more.

    • ...And they'll still be bad for the foreseeable future.
    • Name calling really?  I could just as easily just call you a biased hater.  What’s the going to accomplish?  Nothing.   Think what you want to think.  I have acknowledged more than once Fisher is playing decently, not good and sure as heck not great and that I don’t think he’s the long term answer at LT and that they might very well go in a different direction after the season.  If you think that makes me a homer fine I don’t really care.   My objection to your first statement was the not a defense because I some how love Fisher, I don’t.  It was objecting to the idea that they have to move Nelson to LT when he gets his big contract.  They don’t.  They will have other options and that doesn’t mean Fisher will be one of them.     There is a level between good and awful.  AC was good.  Davenport was awful.  Fisher is clearly not as good as AC was right now but he’s also not as bad as Davenport.  The word someone else used was serviceable, I said decent.  Either way he’s in the middle.  He’s not playing great but he’s also helping to block for an effective running game at the moment and doing better in the passing game than Davenport was.  So in other words it could be worse.   As for this year you can want them to move Nelson all you want but Reich shut that down in camp so while you may want it or think it’s for the best they aren’t going to do it.  So like him or not Fisher is the guy.  Again, that’s not because I so how love Fisher, that’s just understanding what the team is going to do.   It’s clear you disagree with that approach and that’s fine.  However, saying every chance you get isn’t going to make it happen.  No one who gets a say in that decision is going to run to the forum to see what the fans want them to do.  We get what you want and feel free to want what you want, but saying it over and over isn’t going to make it happen.  
    • Who in the world calls him Ed?   At the end of his second season,  EDGE had 2 rushing titles
    • Does Pryor have any Pryor experience at LT?   Maybe we give him a look there when B.Smith gets back.
    • Watch a replay of his td his foot gets trapped between the turf and the defender looked really bad live . I was surprised when he got up .
