Early season vibes never last forever. Bengals lost to the Jets, Bills lost to the Jaguars etc. last year, the Bucs lost to the Saints 0-9, so many crazy results last year. 

 

Once you are in the playoffs, the best 3 or 4 game team is left standing, that is all that matters.

I loved the Giants decision to go for 2 at the end of the game. Had they missed it, many would have criticized them. I would have liked the decision even if they missed it. Play to win!!

It worked out but I didn't, horrible call. Take the easy point and trust in your team to win it in OT. 

 

Vikes looked impressive. I'm surprised they only scored 23. Jefferson had one of the best games I've ever seen a WR have, caught everything thrown his way no matter what...underthrown, overthrown, did it all. Could have easily had more and would have if it was a closer game. 

 

Cowboys are a joke as is that whole division again.

I did not realize that Justin Reid was no longer with the Texans. He played so well for them. 

@NewColtsFan Did you see that former Stanford Cardinal kicked in place of the injured Chiefs kicker today? 


I did, and was surprised as anyone.   I think we file this under the heading of Best Kept Secret!         :omg:

I loved the call. I like taking risks.

Good to hear. I could not see the game live. I paid for NFL+ which is this year's version of Game Pass. It provides replays of the games. The GB@MN replay started with about 3 min left in the first quarter. It was already 7-0 MN. I wanted to see a replay of the first drive but it was unavailable. I'm hoping this is a mistake. Game Pass would show the whole game.

It worked out for them that time but they went for 2 after their first touchdown earlier in the game and failed to convert. If they had just kicked the extra point after their first TD (and assuming they make it) they wouldn't have put themselves in the situation at the end of the game where the extra point was only going to tie it.

I was referring to that situation alone. I was not commenting on other decisions made in the game. 

 

I did not watch most of that game. I did not see that they had gone for two earlier on but I probably would not have liked that decision. I cannot really comment on it, as I did not see it. However, I usually do not like going for 2 earlier in games if 1 point will tie the game (unless it is the end of the game). I'm not sure what the situation was. But at the end there, I liked that they went for 2 even if that decision had resulted in a loss. My friend who is a Giants season-ticket holder for decades and has attended 4 of their Super Bowls agreed with me, knowing this year's Giants team. He watched the whole game.

 

Last year I think John Harbaugh made a similar decision and it did not work. I liked that decision then too.

Whoever put the confused face it was a joke because that is all everyone wants to do with Reich.

 

BTW denver looks bad. Almost like it takes time when you have a new QB.

Not to mention the emotions he’s going through. Walks out and immediately gets booed by the Seattle fans. Brutal…

I have never been a Wilson fan. This is one trade o did not have a good feeling about. We will see how it turns out.

I’m not sure how I feel about him. Looks like Seattle doesn’t like him at all. The fans look rabid and downright hateful tonight. Maybe that’s just Seattle though?

Those fans have me pulling for the Broncos.  

That was a stupid challenge

SB Trophy to Geno and Carroll lol...

 

Rook HC, learning opportunity. 

 

And only 1TD from Wilson... and 2 other fumbles... 

Humble opportunity. 

The offensive mistakes were a lot like colts  yesterday in the red zone with the dropped passes. Red zone always comes along last with a new QB.

    • Any reports on how day one went? Can't find much info out there. 
    • The Colts spent big on resigning players this past offseason.  However, I see a lot of roster turnover heading into next offseason with limited cap space.   Round 1 - Edge Princely Umanmielen (Florida) - In four years has 24.5 TFLS including 14.5 sacks.  In 2023 he ranked 4th among Power Five edge defenders in pass-rush win rate (22.2%) and his 42 run-defense stops since 2022 are tied for second. 98% a clone to Laiatu Latu.  Project resign Dayo but Ebukam/Lewis are on the bubble while Genard Avery is a free agent.   Round 2 - WLB Harold Perkins Jr. (LSU) - As a true freshman led all LBs in Power Five linebackers with a 91.0 pass-rush grade and second among all LBs in the country with 18 QB knockdowns (sacks/hits) and tied for second in the country with 4 *.  Since 2014 era, that ranks third best behind Rueben Bain Jr (freshman) in 2023 and Myles Garrett in 2014. EJ Speeds replacement.    Round 3 - S Keon Sabb (Alabama) –From backup to a starter while at Michigan, he made the most of his 360 snaps.  As a sophomore Sabb was only one of six Power Five safeties to earn an 80+ grades in both coverage and run defender.  Sabb replaces Blackmon.   Round 4 - TE Caden Prieskorn (Mississippi) – Started 2023 with a knee injury missing the first three games.  A Memphis transfer, Prieskorn 449 receiving yards were 9th most among all CFB TEs.  His 1051 receiving yards and 527 YAC since 2022 both rank fourth.  Both Mo Allie-Cox and Kylen Granson (project resign) are upcoming FAs.   Round 5 - LB/SAF CJ Taylor (Vanderbilt) – 6’1” 201 pounds. Taylor spent 55% of his snaps near the defensive LOS and in the box in 2023.  In 2022 he was 3rd among SEC safeties with an 84.9 PFF coverage grade, while his 10 pressures ranked 1st.  In 2023 he was third among all LBs in the conference with a 61.8 passer rating allowed.  Reminds me of Jaylon Carlies whom the Colts just drafted in R5P151.  Carlies is currently listed as 3rd string MLB.  Segun Olubi is the backup behind MLB Franklin and has proven enough to resign after this season.  Projected cuts SLB Cameron McGrone (6’1” 236 pounds) (2024 FA) and SLB Liam Anderson (6’3” 236 pounds) (2024 FA).  Add another 30 pounds to Taylor move to SLB.   Round 6 - IDL Joey Slackman (Florida) final 2023 defense grade while at Pennsylvania, 90.1 (3rd), 92.8 run defense grade (1st), pass rush 71.9 (91st), and a 60.5 coverage grade.  Averaging 48.5 TOT a season along with 4 sacks.  Built like Grover Stewart at 6’4” 300 pounds and has the chance to take over Stewart’s job after a year of mentorship.  Places Davis on the bubble and replaces Taven Bryan.  See how well Slackman does moving to Florida versus much stronger competition.  Could see his draft stock improve.   Round 7 - RB-KR Ismail Mahdi (Texas State) –After his first 6 games in 2023 he had 9 KO RET for 280 yards averaging 31.1 yards which ranked 5th as a KR during that timeframe.  In 2023 rushed for 1331 yards on 223 carriers averaging 6.0 with 10 TDs.  Also proven back that can catch averaging 260 yards a season on 25 catches.  Trey Serman (2024 FA) and Tyler Goodson (2024 FA).   UDFAs LS Byron Floyd (PITT) junior – Floyds 81.7 grade this season leads all FBS LS.  Of his 41 LS on both punts/kicks only one has been charted as off-target.  Does have ties to Colts new DL coach.   WR De’Corian Clark (UTSA) – been compared to Alec Pierce.  Got elite athletic skills.  Made Bruce Feldman’s Freaks List at #94.  In HS he jumped 24’8”, hit 22.2 MPH on the GPS and clocked a 4.31 shuttle time.  Also ran a 4.49s-forty time, had a 10’1” broad jump, and a 35” vertical jump while power-clean 345 pounds.  
    • Interesting….   I think Pittsburg getting rid of their 2023 QB room, Pickett and the backup and bringing in Wilson AND Fields for next to nothing is (IMO) the best off-season transformation by any NFL team including the Colts.      Wilson AND Fields for almost nothing?!?   Yes,  please!    FWIW:  Fields is being used in camp as a returner.  Punt for sure and I think kickoffs as well.     
    • Sometimes you win some of these close games and sometimes you lose. We won a game similar to this in Game 3 vs NY when Nembhard hit that 35 foot game winner. That saved our season because NY could have went up 3-0 had that not gone in. Take the good with the bad and move on.
    • #10 is gonna make a huge difference on offense!!!
