Clifford will be okay. He was doing fine before that.

Yup

 

I'm interested to see how the rookie QBs play. The one the Vikings drafted did not play too well. Stroud was not great.

 

The Jets play the Panthers tomorrow. Bryce Young should play. And the Colts will start Richardson. I don't know when Levis and the Titans play.

Yeah I was very interested in seeing Stroud, I was surprised by what I saw but will chalk it up to nerves.

 

How do you like Nick Mullens for you guys?

 

GB seems to be trying to get their rhythm back.

 

Commanders game is “suspended” for some reason?

I like him. He is a good backup who can start a few games for us, if needed.

Commanders game suspended due to weather.


Wow Browning great throw just now! 2:00 warning.

 

Weather this year has caused lots of problems. The news from Maui is very sad. Those wildfires in Canada earlier this summer affected our air quality -- It was bad.

Yeah I saw some scenes from NY, that was terrible :( it even affected us here in DE as well.

 

Both Browning and Clifford now throwing some dangerous balls, several near interceptions…

Saw some scenes from the Tampa game, Baker 8-9 getting some yards in.

 

Clifford another interception, Cincy with the lead now and definitely a momentum shift.

 

Pickett played well too. The Vikes should have drafted Pickett in 2022.

And now Browning interception. It’s the battle of the interceptions lol

 

I missed that one. I see GB scored again??

 

The Giants are leading the Lions at halftime. I think it is 13-3 Giants.

They said Trevor S on his 7th team, wow

 

I guess he is a bad person?? Just kidding. A member here said Yannick Ngakoue must be a bad person with off the field issues because he has been on many teams. It was an inane comment.

Is the Green Bay kicker Carlson the brother of former Viking kicker and current Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson?

 

Mike Zimmer cut Daniel Carlson after he missed 3 FGs in a game against GB. I did not approve of the cut but many fans liked the move. My thought was that he was a rookie kicking in his second NFL game. Give him a chance. :(. He has been great for the Raiders.

Mike Zimmer cut Daniel Carlson after he missed 3 FGs in a game against GB. I did not approve of the cut but many fans agreed. My thought was that he was a rookie in kicking in his second NFL game. Give him a chance.

I just read Daniel is his older brother.

@DEColtsLover36  Are you looking forward to the Colts preseason game against the Bills? I read that Damar Hamlin will play for the Bills. That will be an emotional moment.

 

I'm interested in seeing Josh Downs. Hopefully he will play.

 

The Game Thread will be in the Colts Game Day section tomorrow. I will be watching the game on my phone or laptop on NFL+ which was Game Pass two years ago. I could stream it on my TV but I won't be doing that.

Man this GB game is crazy! Scoring and momentum shifts back and forth!

 

I am definitely looking forward to seeing the Colts back on the field! :rock: I don’t care for what, even if it’s just preseason. I’ve licked my wounds from last season (for the most part lol) and just want to get over the embarrassment. Looking forward to seeing what our boys can do!

 

I think it will be a bit scary seeing Hamlin back on the field but I know it will certainly be emotional.

The Lions fans are very optimistic. They love their head coach. I do too. I was very intrigued by their team last year and even more this year. And they signed one of my favorite people, Teddy Bridgewater. He may not make the team. He is battling Sudfeld for backup QB but Sudfeld is ahead of him.

I won't take depth chart version 1 seriously... Teddy has to fight for the spot, but if their starter is injured, I'd rather have teddy to start than Sudfeld... Unless proven otherwise convincingly.

Yes, brother. Both went to Auburn, I recall.

 

Lions seem to be obsessed with collecting RBs from other team cuts in their roster.. Gibbs, Montgomery, Ozigbo, Snell, and then some fringe RBs like Reynolds, Jefferson, then Minnesota Gophers rookie I think..

 

And, when it comes to regular season, I'm not sure they do a good job of utilizing their RBs well. Lions' offense last year did awesome mainly due to the brilliance of RB Jamaal Williams, IMO. I think he'll be very much missed this season, and Lions won't be that smooth in offense as last year unless one of their RBs have a great season.

Funny how much Vikings reporters hype too much, only to let down fans every year, like they hyped Mond as dual threat QB. I can't judge Hall by these few snaps, but the hype seemed to suggest he was already better than Mullens...

 

Mullens is very solid, IMO, to keep the season afloat, if the starter happens to be out. Hall will need to show a lot to take the spot from Mullens, and I hope Vikings management do a good job of drafting franchise QB, rather than trying fringe QBs left behind in draft every year.

Mullens is Brock Purdy type, very solid to have in the roster, though lot has to go well if he's to be the starter like Keenum had in 2017... At least, we have got him as backup rather than the ones we used to have like Siemian earlier.

Mond was awful.

 

I'm watching the Cardinals. I think the Vikes could have drafted Clayton Tune. WR Michael Wilson from Stanford is impressing.

 

Uh oh. Tune with the INT. I am jinxing everyone. But I have no problem with INTs in the preseason. I want to see what they can do. It is the time to experiment. If it results in an INT, who cares? It does not mean much. It is how they play that is important.

Pittsburgh is leading 27-7 over Tampa Bay.

GB RB Emanuel Wilson has stolen the show, though the plays might have been against the third string defense ..

 

He was not even in top 500 list of players in draft consensus board and went undrafted, picked up by Broncos only to be waived... I guess today is a very proud day for him.

Yes, no worries with the results. Process and learning is more important.

@stitches was a big fan of J. Love. I wonder how Stitches believes he will perform this year.

Yeah, I really liked him as a prospect. No idea how he's progressed over the last 2-3 years. There seem to have been mixed reviews over the years since he's entered the league. I guess we are at the point where we will see if he's going to be a starting QB in the league or not over the long-term.

He looked good last night. Aaron who? lol, just kidding. He did look sharp.

@2006Coltsbestever Levis threw an INT to end the game. He and Willis played the whole game. The Titans had a chance to win in the last two series of the game but neither QB could get them to the end zone. 

 

Earlier, I said that Levis led to the Titans early TD. I was wrong. It was Willis that scored a rushing TD. They scored another rushing TD later in the game but it was someone else (a RB, I believe).

Hope this doesn’t sound like a homer but I think Richardson had a better debut then young and stroud.  I understand play calling is different. Reich was calling safe preseason plays. But a good start. Richardson played one more dearies then stroud. Young played almost the entire half.

 

I think Young played only one series in the 2nd quarter. Matt Corral took over after that. 

 

I thought Richardson looked the most poised and played the best overall. I liked what I saw from Clayton Tune also while I was watching. I did not watch the whole game.

    • I just thought I would take this opportunity to brag a bit about the fact that I had the opportunity to chat with Peyton at the Masters last week for about 5 minutes.  Truly a bucket list experience and I must say, he has the Southern Hospitality that one might expect but wow- did not expect to run into him and it was quite the experience.  It just had to be the one place left on earth where cell phones are banned, so no picture opportunity unfortunately.   I told Peyton that my first Colts experience was riding to Buffalo in a blizzard when the Colts were 14-0 and they benched him only to lose that game. I said thanks for my first Colts experience being one where he was riding the pine.  He laughed, apologized to me and said that if it was up to him he would have been checking down in that snow storm for 4 quarters.  He thanked me for the support, and was asking me a bit about myself, where I am from, etc.  Quite the gentleman! I think it was obligatory for him to be nice to patrons while he was wearing his Green Jacket, but none the less....a great experience meeting a childhood hero. Lynn Swann walked up to us while we were talking and shook Peyton's hand.  I joked that now was the perfect time for a 10 yard slant- and then slid into the bushes like Homer Simpson with humility.    Unforgettable experience everyone!   Would love to hear some of your Peyton stories from over the years, since it is a bit of a slow time of year before the draft! Let it fly Colts fans  
    • I agree.  I think this is another one of those over-hyped QB classes that will probably never perform to the level of the hype. But -- teams still need a quarterback.  And will convince themselves that that must take one of these quarterbacks.  That it's the only solution to their problem.  If I was forced to choose, I would probably go with Heisman winner Jayden Daniels.  I'm concerned that Caleb Williams may have some personality issues to go with his lack of measurables, even though he shows strong ability to improvise.  Drake Maye has the measurables, but I have questions regarding the level of opposition playing at UNC.  It's not the same as playing the equivalent of the Crimson Tide every single week.  JJ McCarthy is "good".  And he's been successful.  He led his team to a BCS championship.  And?  I see him in the same mold as AJ McCarron.  Supremely successful in college, but not good enough to be The Guy in the pros.
    • Right. KC was also a perennial playoff team prior to Mahomes taking over. The Colts are a fringe playoff team at best, until we see if AR can lift the roster.    And to your point, Veach took over the summer before Mahomes’ rookie year. Hard to compare how KC’s FO approach with Dorsey at GM (for several years) vs. when Veach took over. It seems like Ballard has been more like Dorsey and Veach might just operate differently from both of them.    If Ballard wanted to follow the Veach KC model, he sure waited a long time to do it once Luck retired. 
    • DeFo was an aggressive move.   But I wouldn’t classify Wentz or Ryan as aggressive moves. Getting Stafford would have been an aggressive move at QB. Wentz was cheaper and PHI was looking to dump him. They didn’t even budge from their initial offer to PHI  And Ryan sort of fell in their laps after they dumped Wentz. 
    • I think most important option is missing in the poll : No One.   I think it's a fairly average QB class that it's okay to not like anybody enough to draft him. There's no one QB that Wows you with their pocket passing Caliber or pure athletic traits or good combination of both. It's like a tweener class of all those abilities, having lop-sided combination of above said skills.    And, this poll, rather than forcing to pick one QB, needed that extra option to express staying away from this QB class.
