I know this game isn’t over yet per say, but what does this win prove to the team and for the fans ?

I’m going to rewatch the game tomorrow, but right now my feeling is we haven’t really produced much outside of a handfull of big plays on Offense. 
Same with defense, really, just worse. We give up waaay too many yards and against good teams they easily march down to our endzone. Not good.

I don't think Eric Fisher is going to work out, Nelson is going to have to make the move...

 

I really hate for Nelson to move I really wonder how would Braden or Pryor do at LT because moving Nelson might create more problems at OL. We might fix somewhat LT spot but then we might have not good LG replacing Nelson.

Yeah had our kicker been healthy we would've won and most people know this but yet we were getting ripped for losing. 

We definitely would've won last with a healthy kicker, we almost won with an injured one! Meanwhile, Baltimore is really taking it to the Chargers - it's 34-6, the Chargers have had to punt 4 times, turned it over on downs twice, and Herbert was intercepted, and their lone touchdown came on a short field after a pick of their own, but Chargers' kicker Tristan Vizcaino missed his 5th extra point attempt on the season, and his 3rd in 2 games.

I actually want to see the Chargers do well, I like Herbert but our loss against them looks better now. They are making the Chargers look real bad.

Truth 

 

 

 

And folks wonder why people talk about moving others to LT...

Fish is playing bad but coming off the injury he had I will cut him break for now. If he stinks in mid November we have a problem.

If we have Smith or Nelson back next week, you really want to wait till mid November to make a move?

His bad play doesn't hurt much vs the Texans, but will vs SF.

Yeah, but good teams have so many weapons it’s almost a garanteed TD when they get to the endzone.

Leonard just creating another TO. What move are you talking about? I never said we should make any move? I just said if Fish is playing bad in Mid November we have a problem.

    • I'm just being silly  I posted one of Bryce earlier too..  
    • I knew you wouldn't give us a glowing video on Levis, come on man!!!     I am sure every rookie QB will have a "what was that throw" moment this year including our AR. The bigger issue for Levis is cracking the Top 2, let alone becoming the starter. Tannehill may now wow a lot of folks but he is plenty accurate and isn't giving up his starter job easily.
    • I think an important thought here is that people were picking the Colts to be good based on three main assumptions: 1) We had a good OL and running game; 2) We had a capable, veteran QB who would benefit from the good OL and running game; and 3) We had a coaching staff that would maximize these anticipated strengths.   Those assumptions didn't hold true. A month into the season, it was obvious that the OL wasn't good, the running game wasn't effective, the QB couldn't perform, and the coaching staff wasn't in a good place. So I'd say that our presumed starting point from last season is totally irrelevant, because that starting point was basically a myth. It would be a mistake to assumed that our OL is good, our running game will return to 2021 status, our QB can perform, or our coaching staff is ready to maximize our strengths. In fact, we can't be sure what strengths we have, especially on offense.   On the other hand, if you want to project that the OL will be better, that the running game will benefit from JT being healthy and maybe from Richardson taking the snaps, and that the coaching staff will likely weaponize whatever options we have on the field, I won't object. That's my hope as well, but it's unrealized so far. My real objection is with using the preseason projections from last year as a basis for preseason projections this year. 
    • LOL, someone thinks it is 16 games and in the same thread, another thinks it is 18 games.
