Andrew Luck travels to Washington, DC to battle RGIII in a 1-on-1 duel to the death. Talk about it here.
Sooo, we have a QB but D still sucks, and O-Line stinks to the high heavens...Cool, nothing we didn't know. Take your lumps this year #12, in 2013 you get your ring.
@Platinum Yeah, I was pretty hopeful, but this game has brought me down to earth a bit. I should probably play the "pre-season doesn't mean anything" card which is all I heard when the whole team looked good, but I actually think much can be learned.
On the other hand, the regular season is a whole different animal and the Colts could surprise.
@CoverZero Nah, this team wins 4-6 games maybe. The secondary and O-Line are that bad. We need another draft to fill the holes. Luck is already top 15 QB in my eyes...when the best QB's come in the league, there's a noticeable jump in their second year, they go from a 75 to an 80/85. He's already an 80, this kid will be the best QB in football in 2013.
Add the draft plus free agency, the Colts will stomp something fierce in 2013.
Whatever assets a receiver may have, whether hands, speed, or size, it rarely matters unless they are open. Whalen seems to be open an awful lot.
Love how this announcer with Theisman never names a Colts player. I guess they didn't give him a program.
again, I would easily take Whalen over Avery. He looks like a much better substitute for Collie, pending his return
@RobertItoh Completely different types of WRs. Whalen will be on the PS.
@BDiddy how so? Whalen is bigger, sure, but he is quick, smooth in and out of routes, and has strong hands.
I think he has looked good too, but I just don't know if the Colts can keep 6 wrs, and it is clear Kris Adams is ahead of him.
@BDiddy thats how you get on the field though, show your stuff against the seconds and thirds and then give them a chance against ones. You PS him, he will be gone
@RobertItoh You're seeing Whalen against twos and threes, not ones.
Can't wait til the Waiver wire gets filled with everybody's last cuts. Jesus Christ this team needs depth.
@CoverZero Running backs aren't a problem. OL is.
@Kyle Rodriguez I suppose you are right, but how do we really know? Ballard seems to be moving in the forward direction with the same line. Nothing spectacular, but forward.
@CoverZero Watch each individual play. Both are finding little-to-no space. Neither are making wrong cuts, but this game has been awful in terms of room to run. Colts keep running to right side, and the right side of OL can't get a push.
Is it just me, or do the collars on the Redskins Unis make it look like they're wearing polo collars?
There is no way this defense is better at tackling or staying in their lane/position than any Dingy defense
