He did step out after he betted it in and before he touched it again. They are probably going to rule it Panthers ball. 

 

It did not look like it. But you were right.

 

How do you like Holton Hill so far?

A good referee would explain that the play stands due to the ball going out and not the player... but why do that?

 

I believe refs say the call "stands" if they did not have conclusive video evidence but it looked conclusive that the player did not go out of bounds.

Yeah, this ref sucks. Stands as called with 0 explanation. Lazy and awful

Yeah at least an explanation.

 

I really didn't figure we would come away with ball since play was blown dead. Tell us why though.

Edit: disregard, I thought you said conclusive that he "did" go out. Carry on.

 

 

If he stepped out, he clearly reestablished himself inbounds prior to touching the ball so that explanation does not work. The ball looked to possibly touch the line on its own, however.

As a technically accurate point most drafted QBs don't amount to anything. But some later round guys do pan out and I didn't see anything from Eason today that made me think he's.... the Sam Tevi of QB'ing and again- I'm mystified at the criticism from "touch" to "step up in the pocket", as if he it's not his first NFL live action.  

 

He's your week 1 starter, odds on. And I think with better protection, he's going to turn some heads.

What I was saying is that I would usually be completely disinterested in any Colts 4th round QB.  We’ve had Manning and Luck and backup QBs are usually an afterthought.  I have never been interested in any drafted QB from the Colts other than Manning and a luck.  If Wentz wasn’t hurt, I’d be equally disinterested in anything that Eason was doing.

 

right now from my limited perspective I think I’d rather see Ehlinger,  but it’s the difference between death by hanging or death by drowning,  don’t want to be killed but I think I’d rather hang than drown, but I’m not really sure.

    • I have both teams projected at 11 wins and splitting so that part is  a Wash. Tannehill plays well in that system but he isn't better than Matt. I do think Matt Ryan will have a much better year than last. Simply because our roster is better than Atlanta's. I would take Matt Ryan over Tannehill or Wentz going into 2022 all day. I think we win the division based on tiebreakers. It will be interesting to see how Henry bounces back but to say he is better than Taylor now is a stretch after the year Taylor just had. They also lost Brown which is bad. The defenses kind of Wash out. I look at our team and have us a little higher than 15. Vegas has us 12th as far odds to win the SB. 
    • And how much of that was because Taylor was getting the majority of touches and the team basically gave up on Wentz and the passing game?
    • Shows what kind of impact Leonard provides. His turnover production is at historical rates. 
    • The Colts can't afford OBJ? Jarvis Landry is making roughly $6 million in 2022. OBJ is injured and will more than likely miss half the season. The Colts have roughly $12 million in cap space right now. OBJ isn't going to command much when he's coming off an ACL injury and will miss a good portion of the year. He'll sign on to a team for a cheap one year deal probably marked with incentives. The Colts could get him for $4-5 million without question. Guys like TY Hilton will probably get somewhere around $5 million for a one year deal somewhere.
    • For a rookie TE who looks to be the TE2 and all the other receiving mouths to feed on what is a more run-based offense....that is not just a high but an extremely unrealistic expectation. There are starting TEs on teams with no competition at TE who don't get that.     Nothing against the guy but IMO drafting a rookie TE high was not the right move here at all. Ballard should have gone after an established FA guy like Hooper or whatever. With Ryan we are in WIN NOW mode and as stated, rookie TEs usually don't do much.
