Nah. Thanks anyway. We have satellite internet. Not really that reliable and halfway between dial-up and broadband. Not quite quick enough to watch a game.

Maybe I can catch it on a replay on NFL Network.

Appreciate the offer though. :)

Vick looks really good right now. Passes are very crisp, and he looks very relaxed, as if he's adapted the pass-first mentality. Eagles D-line is destroying the Raven's offensive line. Babin + Cole are forces to be reckoned with.

However, the new kickoff system is absolutely nonsense. If your kicker has a half a decent leg, it will result in a touchback. I hate this new rule

First I have heard of this new horsecollar rule. You don't have to bring the guy down. All he has to do is buckle his knees?

You can bet if someone grabs my jersey the first thing I would do would be bend my knees with this rule.

I don't like it.

I love Bob and I wish he were still on our team. It is of course all in the cards life deals us but I wish him only the best.

I met some of his family while living in PA and they talked about what a nice guy he was and how he cared for his family and loved ones. How silly people were for lining up in the rain for an autograph at a family reunion(and of course I said "I would have"). Silly stories that made him more personable to me.

The Colts did the best they could for him imo. It didn't work out, but I will miss him. One of my all time favorites.

For the record, you could see Bob tear up and get softer when they interviewed him on ESPN about not being able to deliver to his fans these past few years in Indy. He is definitely thankful to us and to the Chargers for giving him a second life.

Was that the on field interview with Suzie Kolber? Or during the pre-game show...I saw the on field interview and he never made mention of Indy (3rd qtr)

Yes, with Suzie Kolber. She said something along the lines of, "I know it was difficult the past few years not being able to deliver to your fans" before he responded, that would be us! That is what I was referring at.

I see a lot of respect from Colts fans for Bob. I went to Chargers practice last week, our fans aren't ignorant to the past-- and they're rooting for Sanders big time. When the scrimmage announcers gave Bob a shout out, the crowd went wild.

That being said, Chargers starting Offense and Defense dominated the Seahawks. If this was a regular season game it would have been a blowout. It was pleasing to see them laugh like hyenas after they won.

The way that 1st drive looked, Rivers may have tossed 7 TD's by half.

Anybody watching the game tonight?

I am. I'm football starved! Like to see Seattle win (sry Boltwalt) but i'll be surprised if they do.

wins and losses in preseason is pretty meaningless

i only ever look for how the 1st team O and D looks, and if we can escape injuries

so i'm pretty happy after this evaluation #1

The Chargers passing game looked spot-on, but they still seem to struggle running the ball ... then again, it's week 1 of preseason, but that's my take on what I saw.

can't really gauge a running game when the starter only gets 2 carries lol

Unless they completely changed the rule, grabbing the jersey is not a horsecollar and is completely legal. Grabbing the shoulder pads is a horsecollar and is not legal.

    • Rough 53 (some will be cut)   QB- Wentz, Eason RB- Taylor, Hines, Mack, Wilkins LT- Cosmi, Tevi LG- Nelson, Pinter C- Kelly, Hunt RG- Glowinski, Reed RT- Smith, Davenport TE- Doyle, Allie-cox, Morris, Thomas  WR- Hilton, Pittman Jr, Pascal, Campbell, Newsome, Pattmon   DE- Houston, Banogu, Turray, Smith, Muhammed, Rochelle DT- Buckner, Stewart, Lewis, Stallworth, Brown LB- Leonard, Okereke, Speed, Adams, Franklin CB- Rhodes, Melifonwu, Moore, Ya-Sin, Tell, Rodgers, McCain III S- Blackmon, Willis, Davis, Odum   K- Blankenship  P- Sanchez LS- Rhodes    
    • Those three PLUS wide receiver!   Those Big 4 match our four biggest needs. 
    • *Colts re-sign Justin Houston- This may be after the draft but as of now I think he is the best chance to help our pass rush not take a step back unless we want to try Ingram or Clowney.   **I still have hope Ertz could end up available but if not oh well.   Here we go... yep. No trades.   1. Sam Cosmi- LT- The time to replace AC is now. This may not technically be the best valued player available but he's not far off. If we wait until 54 I think there will have been a run on the best remaining OTs. Take a quality athletic LT at 21 and keep the o-line in great shape. Next year we are likely without a 1st, there may not be a better time. We could trade back but that's hard to predict. We would need a great deal to pass on our pick of the litter imo.    2.  Ifeatu Melifonwu- CB- Great fit. Tall, athletic, excels in zone. Not quite as big a need as DE but not far behind. Rhodes only has one year for now and I, like others, would like to see an upgrade over RYS.   4. Elerson Smith- DE- With the need at LT and the lack of value in round two we opt to dig for athletic upside for our pass rush addition. We come up with Smith. He's a bit of a forum favorite and I get why. We can't confidently fix every issue this year imo, but if you can't, at least find some upside.   5. Dazz Newsome‐ WR- We may very well pass up a lot of good value at WR this draft but the good news is some solid prospects are likely to fall into the later rounds. An explosive prospect who can compete with Campbell to replace Hilton as our little guy speedster. Lol   6. Quentin Morris- TE- One of my favorite late round prospects. With this being an average to below average TE class after Pitts, Morris offers some upside to provide us with a move TE down the line.   7. Franklin McCain III- CB- Borrowing again from a pool of forum recommendations. You can't realistically expect late round guys to all be hits but I'm down for investing those final picks in depth we can groom.   Final notes:   - Cosmi and Melifonwu are my favorite no trade 1-2 realistic punch. Value and need matches pretty nicely imo.   -I've seen Newsome graded as a 2nd rounder but most have him at rounds 4-5. He also ran a 4.38 so I might be a bit optimistic about his availability   -I could always do another mock but I don't see my view changing much from now until the 29th.
    • It’s the University of Michigan for goodness sake!    It would be a bigger deal if Dodds wasn’t there!
