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.

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

    • Relax....i was paraphrasing a Bill Tobin quote . Tobin went off on Kiper when the Colts drafted Trev Alberta instead of Trent Dilfer. 
    • @Superman   @w87r   So, among many things, I get e-mail from Sports Illustrated every day.   And the other day,  there was this article written by Andew Brandt, who used to handle the contracts and salary cap issues for the Packers for 10 years.    And one thing he wrote jumped off the page at me.     Now, here's why I remind our two resident Salary Cap experts I noted above about something they have both talked about,  but I haven't seen either of them talk about this year.   Roll Over.   According to Brandt,  the Colts have the MOST SALARY CAP ROLLOVER in the NFL.   $30 MIl.    So, whatever the general 2021 team salary cap turns out to be,  you can add $30 Mill for the Colts.     I'm going to do two things.     I'm going to link the entire article for everyone.    It's free, non-premium,   and I'm also going to cut and paste the key section for everyone to read right here.      OK....    here's the article...      And just for discussion purposes,  Brandt uses a projected salary cap of $185.   He's NOT saying that's what the final number will be,  only his own hypothetical number for his article.   https://www.si.com/nfl/2021/03/02/business-of-football-understanding-the-salary-cap-dead-money?suid=5cc1cc3a3f92a475c0234f43&utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=SI Extra 030221&utm_term=SI Extra - USE THIS - List     Here is the key text:   Myth: Every NFL team’s cap number is going to be $185 million   No. Actually, no team’s cap number is going to be $185 million (or whatever the final cap number is). The 2011 CBA, for the first time, allowed teams to carry over unused cap room from one year to the next. In managing the cap for the Packers, we did not have that option; it was use it or lose it. I had to negotiate * incentives—such as a clause giving our third-string quarterback $20 million if he threw seven touchdowns in our last game—to carry over cap room. (When he didn’t earn the incentive, we would get it as a credit toward the next year.) Now teams don’t have to play those games. As per NFLPA numbers, every team in the league has carried over 2020 cap room, from a low of roughly $500,000 for the Ravens to a high of more than $30 million for the Colts. Teams carrying over $20-plus million of cap include the Jets, Browns, Eagles, Cowboys and Jaguars. Thus, although the team cap is $185 million, the Colts’ adjusted cap will be around $215 million, and so on. And again, these teams have been preparing, or should have been preparing, for this reduced cap for months.   What say you both, Superman and w87r?     What do you think of what Brandt has written?    Does everyone have to re-do their off-season mocks reflecting a team figure of $215?     I look forward to hearing from both of you and others!
    • Jets take Zach Wilson  dolphins up
    • I have to agree. His draft order is not always spot on but his ability to evaluate talent is always in the ballpark as to what GMs agree on.  As it turned out Tobin's rant ended up being pretty lame after Trev Alberts ended up being one of the Colts all time bust. Not only was Alberts a bust, so was Tobin.
