Love my Cardinals, but I don't expect much from Newsome.  As a 5th rounder think the Colts could have done better, but he did give BSU their only reliable pass-rush game-in/game-out.  Hard to compare against NFL talent, but he seemed to stack up decently.

Love the series as a mute on the normal over-expectation others put on rookies, Nate.


That being said, a 2nd round OL SHOULD start on this line somewhere, and thus I agree wholeheartedly.  While Mewhort provides depth up and down, his primary contribution should be as a starter, considering how terrible the Colts OL has been for the past couple years.

@Kyle Rodriguez @FootballFanatic1@rogcohen I thought they drafted him as C/G now and possible RT of the future.

While I agree that it wasn't a sexy pick, if he improves the O-line immediately it was a good pick.  With Thomas and Thornton being non-home runs at G, I don't mind it if that was their value on the board.

Moncrief is the sexier pick because WR's are always sexier, especially knowing that the Colts need a Wayne replacement coming and this being a deep WR draft.

This review made me feel good.  This seems like an upside pick, and the Mewhort pick seemed like one as well, albeit with a more practical feel as an all around lineman.


Go Grigs.

KSK is a dumpster fire that attracts people who think they are smarter than they are to comment in a circle-jerk of idiocy.


I will be sure to take advice from someone named "Christmas Ape" on how to be more adequately judgmental.

Sorry.  I just sometimes marvel at being a fan of the same team many of those people are.

One of the more inconsistent teams I've ever watched, this Colts team has potential up the wazoo.  Part of being young and dumb is that inconsistency, Pags and Pep MUST reign this in though.  This isn't a college team, and while wild fluctuations in play are interesting, they don't make for Super Bowl winners.


That being said this is a gritty, entertaining football team.

I'm surprised they didn't try to kick a field goal on that 4th down.  They must not have looked at Colts history against ridiculous field goal attempts.

Did the Colts simply eschew a spy on Alex Smith the entire game?  I didn't recognize any obvious spying in the second half, but then again they weren't running him as much.


Beyond that, and the starting of Toler for unknown reasons, the Colts were simply burnt by some good play-making for the most part.  (And bad tackling.)

During the game I just kept thinking: "What does this team do well?"

They try to hang their hat on being a power running team, but that was non-existent until miraculously they just figured it out on that last drive.

Also, this O-line has to be in the historically bad range for hits and pressures allowed.  It's nearly every pass play.

How many more years does Mathis have of this sort of ability?  They are this bad with him playing out of his mind (against the pass), I don't even want to think about how bad they are going to be without him.

Is there a worst position, other than special teams, to invest a 1st round pick in?

Everytime I watch the Colts play, all I can think of is how valuable that 1st round pick would be for a WR, DE, DT, OG, C, CB, ILB... just about every fucking position other than a RB.

What I really liked about Brown was that he had only green in front of him and you saw him purposefully warp both arms around the ball to protect it from being punched out.  Heady.

I'm really not impressed with Richardson.  Had one really good attempted blitz pick-up though on that busted? play.

@TheGreatMisdirect @Candlebox It's safe to say there is an argument over whether any running back is worth a first round pick, unless he's Adrian Peterson.

We'll have to wait and watch how Richardson progresses.

@TheGreatMisdirect @Candlebox I'm sure their inclination was to attack the run with Richardson in, yeah.

 He looked to be fairly good picking up the blitzes this game, already, and his running game will probably be smoother as he learns the Colts line tendencies and such.

@Jayjaybe @BDiddy You'll see this happen maybe once a game, for it to happen that quickly that many times is a bit outside the norm and shows something was off.  Perhaps that is why there were so few flags the rest of the game?  Officiating is such a subjective thing, that might have had an impact on a ref the rest of the game.

The only really bad flag all game I thought was the first crown of the helmet personal foul.  That was a clean hit.

@MikeMiller4 @BDiddy Whenever I see a blown assignment or somebody getting steam rolled it tended to be Sheppard or Walden, but that was mostly the first quarter where it happened in all fairness.

@mshah9008 @BDiddy Yeah, I actually already forgot Donald Thomas, though.  Lol.  It's a good kind of forgetting though, as he never stood out for sucking horrifically.  

But hopefully McGlynn/Holmes can give Satele an actual camp battle next year, or even take his place this year.

 It also shows why the Colts keep around Reitz, Linkenbach, and McGlynn.  The ability to shift them to positions of need, even if they are subpar, is a big roster +.

@pierrezombie Center's dictate blocking schemes, so whoever has to adjust at the line is sometimes responsible for what happens.  Not saying it is the case, but saying it is in fact an actual possibility.

1.  Great, great win for the Colts in a hostile environment against a normally very good San Fran team.  2-1 and should be 3-1 after next week.  I'll take a 3-1 start for sure, it's where we were scheduled, just flipped a W/L.

2.  Some people might be inclined to think that this performance somehow pays off the Richardson trade, or the philosophy behind it, that we controlled the clock and rammed it down their throats.  Well, what it showed me is that Bradshaw and Brown would have been just fine to carry the load without trading away a first round pick for Richardson.

3.  What a pleasant surprise, just like last week's game ending sack loss ruined my day, this upset will make my week.

4.  The defense, outside the first drive, was outstanding.  Part of that could be the fact that the 9ers inexplicably went away from pounding to the right at Walden, part of it could be the lack of receiving weapons allowing a smothering performance by the secondary, or hell, maybe the Colts D is rounding into form.

5.  Delano Howell and Bjorn Werner played pretty well, I thought.  Flip that for Sheppard and Walden who should be replaced by Conner and whoever.

6.  McGlynn is a much better center than a guard, I think.  Castonzo played well and we still need a legit RG.

@BigBlackRichard I don't think it's the trade, per se, that is causing concern.  It is what it signals.  Many here, since the days of 18 to 88 have believed that you run when you win, not win to run.  This FO seems to belive that you run to win, and has hired and not traded accordingly to that philosophy.

Richardson might be great, and he might be able to help play action passing like Edge once did, but if there is no line to make the play action believable it's worthless.  The concern is about prioritizing positions on the field and their relative value to winning versus whether or not a player might be a good player.  

Richardson certainly didn't help Cleveland win, but is that his fault or Cleveland's fault?    Maybe he makes the Colts O a juggernaut.  Maybe he doesn't and the price was improving the O-Line, D-Line, or replacing Reggie Wayne with a future #1 receiver.  All things more valuable, right at this moment to the Colts than a RB they could do well enough without.
