darn I missed that play, what happened?

He was eligible.....and he looked like Mary Poppins trying to catch it....he started out...with the Ravens initially as a TE.....Bob Lamey mentioned it lasted all of two days... :).it was the play before the Carter TD.

Does anyone know if Chapman will get some play time today? I haven't been paying attention to if he's been in or not.

He is the one person I haven't heard much about throughout the off season... So I hope he gets some playing time.

They should have given Luck the final drive... A perfect chance at a learning experience wasted.

His previous drive was 'his' 2 minute drill FJC....I agree it would have been nice to see him try to go 98.....but he was already done....helmet off....studying pictures.....and massaging his neckbeard....handsome devil.....that chin strap must itch.....:)

I do not know if you guys noticed...the last drive by Stanton had A.Q.Shipley at center....Link at right tackle I believe....George Foster at left Tackle....and I saw Tepper out there but could not see where he was....Was Hicks out there...could not see everyone...Shipley was blowing guys off of the ball and blasting guys down field....

Yeah they went no-huddle for part of that drive, but this was a perfect opportunity. You tell him the game is tied, and you need a FG.

To me pinned in deep like that is a situation he will face every other week if not every week and it was a perfect opportunity. The fact that it was a true two-minute drill to me makes it even a better learning situation.

That to me is what preseason is about. It's why Belichick in a game a few years ago sent a back up qb in cold and took Brady out like he was hurt.. Just working on situations.

Wonder why they're wearing white at home?

So the Colts uniforms can reflect back the summer heat at this time of year, and LOS's roof is open. Many NFL teams wear white uniforms at home in August and September so the players do not feel as hot while they play on the field.

Hmmm.....never thought of it that way. Nice little tidbit.

Still blacked out here. Must be an Indiana thing. :( Oh well . . . at least I can still watch it on a local channel.

That makes sense, as its local, NFL channel will rebroadcast by u maybe if u want to see again but will be plenty of highlights shown

Peytons first pass was a crossing route hitting Harrison who also took it in eerily similar

all in all Quite impressive play and the young receivers guys played well , Cosv by, TY hiton and Like luck making a quick call and rush a play as announcers on NFL network said he may have been bobbling it and went out of bounds

Collie looks healthy , thats great , Young receivers and RB ballard all looking good and all can grow together with Luck so will have chemistry for long time and collie still young

Good awareness in the pocket and good command & accuracy <Excellent play

McKinney demanding the double team......good sign.....D J Johnson should have made an int.....then did not wrap up....on the tackle....Mario Harvey with a nice play to thwart the drive.

Jerry Hughes once again with 2 QB pressures.

    • I tell you one thing.  I am much more confident in a victory than I was the first time around
    • That is a moving target.  We have no idea today which College QBs will even be in the draft.  We also don't know which ones might rise up from unexpected places.  The favorite for the Heisman wasn't on many people's radar just a couple months ago.     We also have no idea how our 4th round pick is performing.  We don't have a single hint even.  He could look like a washout or he could look like Mahommes Pt, 2.   Additionally, we have no idea what other QBs will be on the market for trade.  Would Matt Ryan be an option? Sam Darnold? etc. etc.  Those are just names we have no idea who will actually be available.  We also do not know for sure that Rivers will want to keep playing.  There's still at least 6 weeks to go.  Anything could happen.  Injury could quickly make him decide to move on.  He's never been hurt enough to miss a game.  A significant injury could make him pack it up.  We also don't know if he will hold up in general.  What if his arm fades significantly? It happens to the best.  Brady looked awful.  Manning got benched and barely made it through the playoffs his last year.  He was awful in the Super Bowl even though his defense won the game.     We just don't know what options we'll have or what the circumstances will be.  We may see a massive salary cap reduction and they may go with a cheaper option out of necessity.  We have a lot of young players that need to be resigned.  One year QB versus 8+ more years with a key young player can change things.     I am not anti Rivers, just the opposite.  I have said all year that when the oline was struggling early, his quick release made all the difference.  When people were calling for Jacoby, I said his slow release will no longer fly.   But I am also a realist.  We need a long term answer at QB.  Year to year is bad for everyone.  Each QB has pros and cons and we need to build a team that works with our QB's strengths.  I hope that Eason is thriving.   Otherwise, I hope we draft a young guy who is ready to go.  I am not a Darnold fan, but Ballard has a good track record at most positions.  Let's hope when he picks someone, whether it is Rivers or an unknown, they can keep this train rolling.  All that said, it is WAY too early to hitch the wagon for one last year with an immobile elderly RB.      
    • Sorry but that was funny. Lighten up Francis 
    • There are so many variables in football, that you have to pretty much go with points allowed and ypg, but even then things get convoluted.   High scoring teams tend to give up garbage points and yards.  Some defenses willingly allow yds between the 20s knowing their shells will minimize the possiblities of touchdowns.  Some offenses are really good at moving the ball between the 20s, but lack a playmaking touchdown producer.  I think the Colts suffer from this offensively.   I think it's hard to argue definitively.   What I see is an offense that has bascially had one poor game scoring wise v. Balt, and a couple of other weaker days v. Jax and maybe Cle, but I think it is better than significantly more than half the teams, and under the circumstances personnel wise I find it hard to validate the argument that the offense is not a good one overall.
