2 days ago on Colts Notebook: Defense to the Rescue
Except for the muff, I thought Rainey looked pretty good returning punts. I'd rather have him back there than TY, we don't need to risk him getting hurt. They also had him on at least one O set, we may see more of that.
What I really want to know is what the heck happened on that last drive? I'm looking forward to Ben's O-Line analysis. It was like they were a different group.

How did we become a run first team on that last drive? What adjustments were made? It wasn't all DB, he didn't have much success before that drive. I'll look forward to the OLine breakdown.

This is something I look forward to each week. Great job.
In your opinion, is Reitz a better blocker than McGlynn? I know the coaches are trying to put the best 5 out there, but isn't the obvious answer to put McGlynn at C and Reitz at G?

Rome wasn't built in a day. They traded their first round pick for Nero and got burnt on that move too. But things eventually worked out... until they adopted Obamacare...

Kyle, you know what's wrong with this series? I can sit here for way too long watching the gifs over and over looking at different players.
Great job, as usual!

I agree. Landry took the smart angle, he had to figure our guys would at least slow down CJ. Split second decision.
You go back to the Panthers but ignore the two losses after that. I'm not saying they're bad, but I fail to see how they're getting all this love for a D that stopped three really bad teams. I listened to Rick Venturi on a JMV podcast. He made them sound like the 85 Bears with half the team full of "ambien" players. And if we're going to recite stats, how many total wins do the teams they beat have?
1 week, 6 days ago on Eyes in the Backfield: Cardinals
I keep reading about this amazing Cardinals defense. What amazing offenses have they shut down in their last three wins? Three teams win a combined 5 wins. After the Rams game no one should feel we're a clear favorite against anyone. But the hype for this Cardinals team is ridiculous. They're an average team that just beat three bad teams.
Doyle is a happy surprise. I think the multiple TEs on the roster may have something to do with Havili's health. Pep would probably like about 4 more. We need Werner to step it up this week, he's looked like he's lost out there in the past.

Mostly agree with everything. But this "overpay" thing always gets me. What does it really mean? Is it value of a player per game? If you can judge overpaying right now, then we really over paid for Thomas and Bradshaw. If it's over the life of the contract, then we have to wait to see if their performance was worth it. I'd rather leave the dollar value to the accountants and judge a guy by what he does on the field. No matter how much he's paid. JMO.

You're missing the Link! (Offensive players when Moore was here) But you know I just wanted to put 'missing' and 'link' in the same sentence. Thanks for that. There's also a joke somewhere in there about him being offensive, but I won't go there.

@MarcusDugan That's hilarious. It reminds me of the time my daughter got her head stuck in the staircase bannister railings. I told her it was a good thing the game was at halftime. Many years later I got my hand stuck in a sofa bed. She said it was karma.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Colts Sign Free Agent RB/KR Chris Rainey
I get what you're saying about WRs taking time to develop, but even as a rookie you could see how smooth Garçon was during the preseason. I think we all fell into the "Next Wes" fantasy with Griff and then saw he neither had the hands nor the moves. Hopefully Rogers has come along or it's going to be TY and Coby carrying the load.

Ben, once again, this is really appreciated. Outstanding work. When people complain about our interior linemen they need to refer to your work for proof. Satele? Who knew?

What I don't understand is how Vaughn starts over Butler. If they want Butler to cover the slot guy, why not move him over when they go to nickel? It's pretty clear he's a better DB than Vaughn. Also, Bathea has been a rock for this team for all his years. But I really hope they don't throw a big contract at him next year. His play is still good but you can see the decline starting.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Week 11 Report Card: Colts at Titans
Your last sentence makes complete sense, I know it's logical. But I still can't route for the Texans. I don't worry about the Jags since they'll blow their draft anyway. I was at the game Thursday night and talked to a lot of Titan fans. Almost universally they want a new head coach. I don't think they're right, but I love it when teams in our division are in turmoil.

Ben, these articles are outstanding. Really appreciate the hard work!

I'm rooting for the guy, he has all the measurables. Using them on the field is another story. I said it previously, and it still is a wonder to me - how does he not even make the Bills practice squad? Were they that loaded at WR this year?
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Colts Notebook: Rogers Earns His Chance
I still can't get my head around how he couldn't even make the Buffalo practice squad. They're not exactly deep at WR.
