2021 Preseason Game 1: Carolina @ Indianapolis 1pm

Seems like one of the most anticipated Colts preseason games in a while. Understandably so, as we have 2 young QBs making their NFL debuts, while battling it out for potential starter minutes. 

 

After a couple days of joint practices, the 2 teams square off in what appears will be a pretty vanilla matchup.

 

By all reports, the joint practices seemed pretty 1 sided. Hopefully that continues today as Panthers are said to not be playing starters.

 

Great day, we've been waiting for this for a while.

I really hope we see Eason and Ehlinger get almost two quarters each. I'm all for protecting guys in preseason, but these two need legitamite game reps, to see if they can even play in this league.

 

Feels like its been forever since watching a colts game.

Reich said about 1.5 quarters a piece. He can’t protect them. He needs to open the game up to see what they can do.

I'm glad they're finally playing "games" against other teams - I'm looking forward to see how our 2 young QBs match up but will also be cognizant of who is playing when and whether Carolina is playing alot of their defensive starters in relation to how effective each guy looks.

Can’t wait to watch the game and spend time in the game-day thread with everyone! Everyone get their favorite game-day snacks ready, I’ll be having popcorn and cheese and maybe some other snacks after halftime.

there might be some bad snaps from the center hunt has struggled playing center . 

I think we might see Reed at center and Fries at LG. At least to start the game. That is what they did in practice Friday.

Steve smith terrible lol

Haha, he sounded like a robot! Lol. Then he said Eason or Ehlinger is starting week 1 despite the fact that Wentz can come back week 1. Doesn’t have all the facts

    • I gave Andrew Luck a lot of leeway because he had no running game, a mediocre offensive line and at best an average defense from 2012-2014 - that is complete facts. We still won 11 games in those years and went to an AFC Title Game. It was because of Luck mainly. If Luck had this team around right now we would probably be 8-4 or 9-3. I am not trying to open up a can of worms because I love the way Wentz has played but Luck was great at closing games in the 4th Qtr in those 3 years. It is just my opinion and like I said I am glad we have Wentz so this isn't a bash on Wentz, he has a good year. 
    • DD just has more sports, and IN knowledge period. Bowen was in grade school when Peyton started here lol. Like I said, I like Bowen more than most of the local beat guys, but there's no comp. I said, if you noticed, I liked Bowen more than most. I said he's not comp to DD. And when it comes to sports and IN sports knowledge, DD's resume is far superior.  I'll be happy to listen to Bowen for "scoops" and insider stuff. But he's green compared to DD, and simply doesn't possess actual sports experience.  Insider scoops isn't really the same as sports knowledge or knowing Xs and Os. And the guys getting insider scoops are typically the guys sunshine pumping, which enables them to get scoops. If they are critical, they potentially lose access.    DD is critical, yet Ballard still sits down with him. It's because DD has cred (even though he's a bungholio).  Yup, Holder and Keefer totally trashed folks questioning Reich.  Like I said to @Nadine, it cuts both ways. DD is just the opposite of the ying/yang today lol. 
    • I'll use my usual metric for describing people; There are some posters I could myself going to a pub with, having a beer and good chat regardless of some of their takes/opinions. Others... not so much.   Hard Knocks is interesting from my perspective as it has never got traction here in the UK, even with NFL fans. Personally I'm cynical about the edit, as with all these types of things, but it is cool to see a different side. I also love the "Mic'd up" series, but you have to recognise that it will be carefully selected and not the true reality of what gets said.     More of this type of thing please people  
    • None at all. I meant it yesterday when i said i love your posts even though i dont always agree with them. Same goes for East. Things will get frazzled on occasion but all respect on my side. Totally echo your words here.
    • Houston not practicing at all because of illness is crazy.  I don't think i've heard of that before in the nfl.   I hope Defo and all the starters play.  We cannot afford to take any game lightly.
