Colts @ Redskins Preseason Game Day Thread


Recommended Posts

We've known for a while that we've had many holes to fill. Then our first and second preseason games gave us a glimpse of hope that maybe we've addressed some of the issues we knew about coming into the season. After this game, it's evident that we still have a long ways to go.

It's not a bad thing to have a loss like this in the preseason. It will be a wake up call to the coaches, and the players.

I agree. The most disheartening thing is that the whole team seemed to not play up today.

The LB's played well. The WR's played well (and Luck, obviously)...but that's it. This will be a nice

wake up. It will be interesting to see how they come out next week in the first drive.

Looks like Fleener has been none existent today and Allen as well overall, I honestly thought we would use our Tight Ends more then we really have, I would have to go back over the three games but it seems like they were not targeted alot and when they were not alot came of it

No, wasn't paying attention. Wonder if he's injured? Is that why we have an extra P on the roster maybe?

I have to think that he's being told to leave the ball in play on kickoffs so that ST can get a chance to play.

This is the only way they're going to find out who's going to make the team and who doesn't.

...just my guess, of course.

His punting has been phenomenal as usual.

I missed most of the 4th quarter, but Im glad I did.

Chandler Harnish has been pretty good. Any passes i should know about?

Showing good mobility and also being able to stay in the pocket and deliver even

if he's going to get hit. He's a legit backup. He's looked good.

Anyone notice McAfee is struggling with power and accuracy?

I truly believe....this is a Pagano test on ST...every kick....early......straight...this is my specialty.....bad game....on to Monday.....this was the last test for 15....15 are done...my guess 20....

5-11 season sounds about right.

And we will look real doing it, too! :) And bad at times as well :(

Next year I hope we draft and add the players necessary for this team to develop into long term contenders. We need to get better in the tranches... both sides of the ball

These refs are terrible.

Harnish looks really good

Yes, that roughing the passer call on #55 OLB Justin Hickman was ridiculous! Are you kidding me?!! Bring back the regular zebras now please. Thank you.

#8 QB Chandler Harnish getting a delay of game penalty and then a safety did not make me happy at all. But, after that he settled down and played decent.

Freeman....a big LICK! GREAT blitz!

Freeman is a beast!

Nice job by Freeman.

Welcome to the NFL RG3... haha Which didn't we lay some hard licks on WR Garcon early and often? :cuss: Take a 15 yard penalty. I don't care. It would be worth it just to show him that you're not a Colt anymore and nothing will come easy for you today. That TD pass to #13 WR T.Y. Hilton was B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!! As many have already correctly stated, where in the wide world of Hades is our run stop defense? We will get annihilated in the regular season if we can't derail our opponent's ground game. This problem is priority #1 to remedy and resolve in my book.

    • No need to lock.  I didn't mean that. I didn't know that there were people that didn't know this story.   Baltimore fans were heart broken but, these days, everything has worked out for the best.   Thankfully   Although there is still disagreement on who has rights to the franchise history before the move.  But, even that is fading   Time heals
    • When Frank has had a good quarterback, he wins and makes the playoffs.   The two years he didn’t make the playoffs were the two Luck years where things went to heck at the last minute.   And one of those two years we looked like a playoff team until JB got hurt.  From there, things went downhill.   This year, we never lost two games in a row.  When we lost a game, we won the next week.  A very good sign of a well coached team.   We had one bad loss, week one in a season where Covid wiped out the entire off-season and all pre-season games.   Ballard speaks glowingly of Frank.   He knows how hard it is to find a good coach.   I’m not sure why you think we’re not a well coach team, but for some strange reason you do. 
    • So you don’t really agree with most?
    • Whether I've heard of them or not is irrelevant. What's relevant is that our coaches can lead our team to a SB win. You can bash me because of my lack of knowledge all you want. The real question is, do you trust Ballard to hire coaches over 31 other teams? Do you trust Frank Reich's word that these guys are good? You are being positive and trustworthy just for the sake of it too. I don't trust anyone for us until they prove they can do their job at the highest level, in the NFL and on the Indianapolis Colts.
    • Joe Tiller coached future HOFer Drew Brees at Purdue.  He's the father of "basketball on grass."  One of the most brilliant offensive coaches of his generation with an outstanding coaching tree.    I say this with no disrespect, but the fact that you haven't heard of someone is pretty meaningless.    Your responses regarding the listing of several coaching legends, together with your reactions toward the several up-and-coming NFL coaches that have been named in this thread, has established you're pretty much only familiar with a few household names that virtually every casual NFL fan is familiar with.   If that was the criterion by which all coaching decisions and hires were made, no coach would ever move up the ranks and have the chance to become successful.    Sirianni was pretty much a nobody before the Colts hired him.  He's still only 39 years old.  Now he's the HC of the Eagles.  Eberflus had never coordinated a defense before he got to Indy.  I'm guessing you had no idea who Gannon was until he was hired away.    In sum, there's no reason to be overly negative about things just for the sake of being overly negative.  It may be more rewarding to expand your horizons and learn more about the game and how many great coaches permeate every level of it.  Some coaches that you perceive as "bad" because of their tenure with a certain team go on to do great things in a different environment.  Same can be said for coaches that you've never heard of (which is seemingly a pretty big list).  That's the nature of the business.
