Hey, thanks, guys.
Over here on YouTube as well.
Thank you so much for joining in.
Can't wait to actually talk about this game against the Tennessee Titans.
I will give a few thoughts about the Ravens, though real quick because, well, let's face it a short week.
Don't really have time to do both a Ravens stream and a Titan Stream.
So just basic thoughts about the Ravens game.
I thought the defense played great all the way through.
Yes, they had to really good drives against the defense.
What the freaking do? Two drives out of the entire game.
The defense gave up 17 points.
I think the defense did an absolutely amazing job.
They held Lamar Jackson and that running attack to the lowest total yards of 110 in a game and the lowest yards per carry as a team at 3.9.
That's lower than any other team has ever held them in the Lamar Jackson era.
And Gary if Leonard straight up, uh, they got over 100 yards.
That's too much.
That tells you right there.
That tells you right there that Darius Leonard is not happy, even even if the defense plays well.
If they lose, he's not happy.
If the defense doesn't play well and they win, he's not happy.
Darius Leonards Never happy.
Darius Leonard wants to go out there and bust his butt and win games on a consistent basis.
Um, he wants the deepest to be dominant all the way around, and I get that. I understand that.
But good Lord, man, when you're only given up 3.
9 yards of carry and they carry the ball like 38 creaking times, what do you expect? I'd say they did a pretty decent job.
I mean, the longest run the Ravens had was nine yards, and that was that little swing route, that little option route that Lamar Jackson had that he ran out for a touchdown.
What hurt the Colts? Waas Two plays First, the Colts were driving, looking like they were going to get at least a field goal if not a touchdown.
And then Jonathan Taylor gets the ball stripped from them and its ran back for a touchdown.
That's a 10 to 14 point swing right there.
It could have been 14 nothing.
Instead, it was 77 That changes the entire dynamic of that game, moving forward.
And then, of course, the interception.
Oh my goodness, How that is called an interception is beyond me.
Okay, beyond me and everyone in media even says they don't know how That's an interception.
Dez Bryant is like, That's not a catch.
If mine wasn't a catch, that sure as heck was not a catch right, and he was on the field when it happened.
So, you know, Yeah, I mean, even even Philip Rivers said in the interview afterwards.
The guy who caught it said it wasn't a catch.
It wasn't he didn't make a football move.
We took three steps.
He was three steps toe.
It was like real quick hitter path.
That band band band with his feet to kind of protect himself as he's falling down.
But it wasn't a football move.
It was a reaction move, and they weren't full steps.
They were little chops with his feet.
What's up, Scott? Thanks for being here on on this stream.
I appreciate you guys.
If you're thank you already.
I got some likes rolling.
Don't forget to share this out there on Twitter.
Facebook, Whatever social media have.
Please share this out.
Um, don't forget hopefully tomorrow or today because it's a podcast.
You're listening to it.
I mean, today, this is a podcast, and it is featured on Spotify by SportsCastr.
So get your thoughts in here right now about the Ravens game before I start talking about the Titans game because oh, my goodness, I thought Philip Rivers play decent.
Everybody getting mad about Philip Rivers.
I thought with the amount of pressure and the blitzes that the Baltimore Ravens sent after Philip Rivers, I thought he played a decent game.
There was a few passes were obviously him, and the receivers were not on the same page.
You don't know if it's him.
If it's the receivers you don't know.
I'm gonna probably say it's the receivers because most of the time most of the receivers are the new guys, like Marcus Johnson and and the Michael Harris right, the new guys that are on on the team.
Yes, Zack Paschal had one past.
That was not really great, but and River says that the interception he threw, he should have through that deeper.
That was that was on him. It was a bad pass.
So what? He had one bad pass in the last what 78 quarters that ended up in interception.
Not worried about it.
Not worried about the problem is, is what happened afterwards.
If he throws one interception in a win, that's not a big deal, especially since, you know, like I said, it's been more than what? Eight.
Actually, that was 11 quarters since the last time he threw an interception.
I mean, my goodness, I'm completely happy with the way Rivers is playing.
I don't think he's that bad of a quarterback.
The issue with with it is, is these guys need time toe work out.
Things like you could obviously tell that passed down field, where the receiver went one way and he should have went the other.
I don't think that was on Rivers.
That was the receiver.
25 million Aunt Roger says.
25 million worth, though.
Yes, absolutely worth 25 million.
That's bottom half of the league in starting quarterback money.
Dude, think about it.
You've got guys out there.
Most your guys your big time.
Uh, starters are making 33 35 40 $50 million.
Now, this isn't 567 years ago.
This is today when the salary cap is up and all the quarterbacks are getting paid stupid money.
That's actually cheap percent at 27 million.
As a backup, I'm a little a little upset about that.
But if your starter's making 25 million, I have no problem with it.
No problem with it.
And, yes, picnic does need to get the ball more going forward.
But you've got to remember, hey, just got back from that leg injury on those two surgeries on his calf, so he'll probably be slowly worked in.
Uh, Carlos Martinez actually went to the game on Sunday, and Coast defense was really good.
I'm glad you got to go to that man there is is a beast.
And it was nice seeing Pittman Makesem place.
I believe that especially.
I wish I could have went seen that live.
That would have been so great.
That would have been so great.
All right, if you're watching on sport Hey, Nick and drink spiked.
Thank you so much.
And case Kai San Francisco.
Er, thank you so much for joining on, SportsCastr.
Don't forget to hit, like and subscribe.
Appreciate you very much.
Out of the 30 people right now watching live on SportsCastr.
I've got about 10 people, I think, watching on YouTube And then, of course, not to mention the many, many people that will be listening to this on the podcast later.
So, yeah, batted balls batted down the line of scrimmage.
Scott says yes, and that happens.
That absolutely happens.
I mean, the Ravens blitz like almost half the time, and they send them from all different directions.
I thought the Colts line and Rivers did a very good job avoiding that and adjusting to those blitzes.
I'm a little upset on the fact that the Colts didn't run the ball more than what they actually did.
They were running it like a 5.
3 yard a clip run.
And yet Rivers threw the ball 43 times.
This game was never out of hand until about halfway through the fourth quarter.
Why didn't the Colts run the football? More? So that's that's what I'm worried about.
Why didn't the Colts run the ball more 5.
3 yards clip? That's pretty darn nice.
Jonathan Taylor got benched after he got the fumble that hurt.
Now Frank Reich was sitting there saying, Hey, you know, um, hey, needs to get past that.
I think possibly he was probably moody like down in the dunks on the sideline sitting on the bench.
Jonathan Taylor was because he fumbled because he's probably heard that all offseason about his fumbling issues.
When he was at Wisconsin, it was his first fumble of the year head over 100 carries before he got his first fumble.
Halfway through the season, you get your first bubble.
Most running backs in the NFL get two or three fumbles in a year.
Marlon Mack is one of those weirdoes that did not fumble the football hardly at all.
Okay, Yes, Ah, weirdo that don't fumble the football.
And he was good at doing other things.
So, yeah, I'm okay.
I'm all right with that fumble.
It sucks that it got returned for a touchdown.
The Colts needed the answer to that, and they didn't.
And that that kind of hurt.
They ended up getting a field goal.
But they got hit on a lot of three announced in the second half.
And that's what hurt.
I think it took a while for the Colts, actually, adjust to the halftime adjustments that John Harbaugh on that deep into the Ravens were making on the Colts.
That was the problem.
Brian says same thing right with me, right? Nomadic.
You get right back there on the horse.
What do you do with the fumble? Get back out there.
Carlos says he flew out to watch the game from L.
Because if they lost, at least it was against Lamar Jackson and a good Ravens team.
And he felt as though, you know, they could have won that game.
Yeah, I believe that too.
I I still to that.
I feel the court should have won that game the Colts won every single offensive stat, every single offensive stat in that game, all of them.
I mean, you go look at the stat line, Give me one second.
I'll show it to you in just a second or I'll not show it to you.
Obviously, I will tell you the stat line.
Give me one moment here.
As a team, the Indianapolis Colts outgained total yards.
Baltimore 3 39 2 to 66.
Yeah, the defense only allowed Baltimore to get 266 yards.
The Colts threw for 227 as opposed to Baltimore's 1 56 and the Colts outrushed outrushed.
Baltimore 112 110 Now, Yeah, they had more average yards per play.
Ah, whole extra yards per play more than Baltimore.
The difference is turnovers.
Her Both teams had a fumble, but that that one interception, that phantom interception waas a big boozy against Andy, the court coach. Deep.
It's got to Saxon.
Lamar Philip Rivers never got sacked.
He got hit a couple times.
He got pressured a few times, No sacks.
Still really sacked quarterback in the NFL.
Alright, Wow, Here's the kicker.
This is why the Colts lost third down efficiency.
Baltimore converted 38% of their third downs, which is technically not very good stat, but it looks like a freaking God said, compared to Indianapolis, 16%.
Are you kidding me? You can't move the football and expect to win.
Converting only 16 percent of your third downs.
My goodness, that is stupid.
Guys, I'm sorry.
All right? I still feel as though the court should have won that game.
They just needed to get a few things moving, Uh, just run the football.
Uh, that way it would help with the play action a little bit.
I would have loved to have seen Taylor and Heinz or or Wilkins and Heinz out on the field and multiple times, especially after Doyle went down with the with the concussion.
Because I've seen that.
I was like, Oh, my, that's That's awful.
But I would have loved to have seen to running back forth.
When is the coach gonna use this? More often, You've seen in a little bit against the lions and then not there at all.
Against what? Ravens? Why would you not have it there against the Ravens? Especially when they blitzed so much you could run running back screens.
You split Hinds out wide for a quick wide receiver screens, so to speak.
You needed to do that.
Give me a moment.
I need something to drink, man.
My throat is already getting four.
I am screaming so much, It's pathetic.
All right, ladies and gentlemen, please, Please, if you're watching this, show this to your social media.
Let people know I'm out here.
I would love to keep people talking.
Eyes play calling part of the issue.
Partly, there's there's there's multiple issues going on with the offense right now.
Okay? Multiple issues, play calling is part of it.
I think that there could be some other place being thrown in there, but the other issue is honestly, we were incredibly anemic at wide receiver.
Last couple of weeks, we've been incredibly anemic at wide receiver.
Um, and also the receivers we do have out there just don't have that connection yet because they haven't been playing very long with rivers with with this, you know, offensive playbook, stuff like that so there's gonna be a little bit of timing issues when throwing the football and where they're throwing the football.
Especially, there's confusion on what kind of route the throw, well, where to look for the football over your shoulder.
Do you look over your left shoulder? Do you look over your right shoulder? You get what I'm saying.
Who do I blame for the third downs? Oh, coaching 110%.
That's the problem with third downs.
Third downs is all about play calling.
You have to expect what kind of play what kind of defense you're expecting on the third down, if its third and short third medium, third and long, if it's 13 short, then expect them to be up close and personal.
It's something that you might be able to get away with with a quick route over the center, uh, toe a tight end or ah, a little drag route by a wide receiver or something.
But if it's like third and long man, so a screenplay throw a screenplay once in a while.
I didn't see the Colts run to me.
I spend some swing routes from running backs, but I didn't see a lot of running backs screens, all right, and that's the problem with that.
Yeah, the problem is wide receiver roulette, Brian.
It is definitely a big problem right now.
Uh, it would be, I mean, T y Hilton, for instance.
Let's take T y Hilton, for instance.
Now I don't want to bash t wide because he's been so great for the Indianapolis Colts over the years that he's been here.
But he's been a problem the last couple years with his injuries, right? He has been a bit of a problem.
Yes, Uh, in 2018, he didn't miss that much time, but he still had the high end, lower ankle sprain for, like, the last six games of the year and was pretty much just a decoy he wasn't thrown to.
He was just a decoy out there because he couldn't really do anything.
And when they didn't do it, he was dropping the ball all the time.
And with Rivers, he ain't been on the field long enough to gain that trust of Rivers and understanding where he needs to throw the football to.
You've got to be on the field and you've gotta have repetitions with the quarterback.
So you're the quarterback, understand what you're doing, and t.
Why hasn't been able to do that yet this year.
I don't think we need a new offensive coordinator and got a good questions.
I don't think that we need an offensive coordinator.
I think they just need to adjust faster.
Okay, that was my problem with Matt Ybor flu last year was that he was not adjusting to what the offense is was doing fast enough this year.
Matt Webber Plus is making in game adjustments, and it's not even a half time.
He's making him on the spot down there after each drive, he makes these adjustments.
That's why when the Ravens came out, they got those two drives and they were in hurry up mode and stuff like that.
Now, granted, the defense was gassed, so that was part of the reason why they couldn't get a stop in a three and out.
And then the Colts actually finally started to drive.
The football gave the defense a little bit of rest and once the defense got some rest, then they started getting three an ounce.
But that also gave Matt Ebert lose a little bit of time to go.
Okay, here's the adjustments I need to do.
I need to talk to my guys.
Let him know what the adjustments are.
They were on the field the entire time.
He wasn't able to huddle them up and say, Hey, you know, these are the adjustments we need to do.
The offense has to make plays so the defense could make adjustments and just like, um eso the offensive coordinators, they need to do the same thing.
They need to make adjustments to how the defense is playing.
That's the only problem.
That's the only problem that I see is they? They're not making the the quick adjustments, understanding the game flow and getting those adjustments out there.
In the fourth quarter, I thought the Colts actually played decent.
It was the third quarter that was awful.
That third quarter for the Colts was God awful.
They had 33 and outs in a row coming into the 4th 3rd quarter.
Oh, they had a first down until right before the fourth quarter.
You can't do that.
You just can't do that and you're definitely not gonna be able to do that this Thursday against the Titans.
No way, because we're having problems keeping up with a fast paced Ravens with Lamar Jackson at quarterback.
I'm telling you, Ryan Tannehill is a better quarterback than Lamar Jackson.
As an overall player, he is a better quarterback.
Then Lamar Jackson.
Lamar's better scrambling.
Ryan could scramble.
Ryan can scramble, not just scrambled to get open, but scramble to gain yards, too.
But he's a better decision maker and amore accurate passer than Lamar Lamar Jackson.
And he's got some weapons out there.
I'll tell you that right now he's got some serious weapons out there.
Not to mention the fact that you already got you.
Definitely gonna stop Derrick Henry, right? You gotta stop Derrick Henry.
But, man, he's got a J.
A J. Brown is a beast.
Corey Davis is coming back right now.
He's having a good year.
He's got like, 29 catches for about 370 yards.
What, three touchdowns? A.
J Browns got six tugs.
That's a heck of a tight end.
Adam Humphreys is a good slot receiver.
Not too worried about him, though, because Kenny More is bad man, seriously Kenny More is a bad man.
Oh, hey, Charm City Brand Do you believe Philip Rivers holding the Indianapolis Colts back from the true potential? Now, I've already talked about this a bunch.
Here's the thing right now, Philip Rivers is what the Colts need.
Is he What the cost need for the future? No, we need if we put in somebody like right now Philip Rivers, the best guy we have on our roster at quarterback, he's better than than Brissette and Jacob Beeson is just not ready.
Okay, so he's the best that we have on a roster, and there ain't nobody else out there right now in free agencies, it's gonna be better than Philip Rivers.
So we got what we got.
We got to just walk with it.
Well, Philip Rivers be the quarterback this time next year.
But you know the season's not over.
Who knows what happens? It's just whether or not the wide receivers and him could get on the same page.
Yes, Harris said, No Alfa Dog.
Uh, dude, I think we do have an Alfa Dog.
He's just hurt right now.
I think Paris Campbell could be the Alfa Dog.
But he's hurt just like he was hurt a lot last year.
And then he goes off the tears, his PCL hoping I'm hoping and praying that he comes back sometime this year.
Because of him and Pittman are on the field with our tight ends and our running backs.
That makes this offense ah lot more dangerous.
Ah, lot more dangerous because you've got ah, big body sure handed receiver with a little bit of speed out on the outside with Pittman.
And then you've got an average sized, not small average side speedster with hands who could make a lot of stuff happened after the catch.
And Campbell, we just need those guys on the field at the same time.
That's the problem.
What pending Fridge Do you think we need to get rid of or upgrade? E.
I hate to say this, but T y might not be a colt next year.
Um, just saying he may not.
Oh, that's just that's just my thought process.
Definitely in the draft, I think we need to go out and get a left tackle.
I think I think the left tackle is something that we need to get, and I honestly think we need to get Marlon Mack.
If anything that we have seen from the running game this year says anything we need to re sign Marlon Mack and God help me.
Even even with an Achilles injury, if he would sign for 6 to 8 million a year, I think the Colts would be stupid not to do it.
No, I don't think, Justin, You know what, Brian? Brian asked.
Do I think that Justin Houston is running out of gas? No, I do not go look at his stats.
Justin Houston has a 6.
3% missed tackle percentage over the last two seasons with Indy.
It's one of the best percentages in the NFL for any player, any player.
He is not only good, see when you're defensive end and not just the pass rusher, but with the Colts, you have two jobs.
Yes, rush the passer.
But the second thing is containment.
And if there's one thing the Colts defensive ends do better than just about any other defense and why the Colts have such great run defense right now is containment.
And you gotta talk at up to guys like Uniqlo, Autry and Justin Houston.
They are dogs at containment.
They are very good.
Well, Autry is amazing at picking the right time.
Two slash inside on the pass rush and Justin Houston Don't do that near Azaz much.
But do we're getting pressure? We are getting pressure.
What do you mean, what? What do you mean, I'm not understanding? Yeah, we had to *** and we had a ton of hips and we had a lot of pressures to Saks. Ain't bad.
That's like the league average per game. Two sacks.
Colts had five sacks the week before against Detroit.
It's not that bad.
It's not that bad.
And And to get and to get sacks against Lamar Jackson when they ran the ball as many times as they did, there wasn't a bunch of opportunities.
He threw the ball 23 times, so we sacked him one time Out of every 12 drop backs.
Put that in your thought process.
Every 12 drop backs that Lamar Jackson dropped back.
So that says a lot.
Yes, yes, Brandon Ace we are gonna have a lot of money.
Oh, that we didn't get pressure.
Yeah, we had a lot of pressure.
Um, the colts get pressure.
Not just from the defensive ends, though.
Grover Stewart DeForest Buckner.
Those guys get pressure up the middle, and that wreaks havoc, period.
You know the Colts.
Right now, Pff is a top five quarterback pressure team defense.
Their defensive line as a defensive line as a unit is top five in the NFL and pressure percentage.
That's pretty impressive.
That's pretty impressive.
I'm getting sick. I gotta fly in here.
Oh, yeah. Pay Grover Stewart.
Rogers, I gotta fly in here, and it's driving me crazy.
It's a big one, too.
Whoa! All right, guys.
Alright, guys, I gotta I gotta move on.
I gotta move on.
We're already halfway into this podcast.
I want to talk about the Titans Colts.
And here's the thing this gave worries me a little bit.
First off, we're going to Tennessee, so you know there's travel involved.
They're not getting much Timeto prepare.
You only got a four game, four day window and you're traveling, so you you don't have hardly know riel practice.
It's mostly walk through and it's going to be difficult.
You ain't got the time to prepare for this.
Brown is phase water Hose, says A. J.
Brown is questionable.
I hope that he does not play, but I doubt I bet he does.
But if a J does play, I'll tell you what.
I'm okay because I think and this is the age is not the fastest receiver.
He's just a big guy with your hands right and could bully.
Somebody got good vision.
And I'm telling you, I think Rock would handle him.
I would rather have Xavier Rhodes out there on Cory Davis because Cory's got more speed, but okay, he's in today.
All right, all right.
Yeah, I think we got the secondary to cover as long as we play proper defense and don't let things get out of hand, All right? Really? Lamar.
On those two drives this past couple days ago, Lamar on those two drives was throwing bullet darts right in between.
Tight coverage is I mean, right in between these guys.
So and he had to throw those balls really hard.
Tannehill's got a good arm, but he can't throw as tight, uh into his title window as Lamar does because he doesn't.
He doesn't have the cannon.
He's got a good arm.
It's just not a rocket laser cannon.
Okay, Derrick Henry is a beast.
But you know what? The Ravens were the number one rushing attack in the NFL for the majority of the season.
They were running over 200 yards like 2 20 a game for a while, right? And the Colts handled that.
I think the Colts will handle Derrick Henry.
I don't think Derrick get 100 yards rushing in this game.
Clowney got beef with Nelson. Yes.
Today be in Clowney.
I hope Rivers uses the heart count on Clowney at least five dozen times in this game because Clowney is so known for jumping offside.
Oh my goodness, I bet Clown.
He gives the cult of 3 10 yards.
I bet he gets called for all sides at least twice encroachment.
But But Clowney is a beast.
Alright? Clowney's really good against the run.
That's what makes Clown he really good.
People underestimate what clown he could do against the run.
He's very good against the run, so I'll give him that.
I'll give Clowney that.
Um, yeah, Nelson ended up just like tackling him.
Oh, Clowney has a knee issue.
Okay, well, that's gonna hurt is burst off the line if Clowney plays.
Yes, that's right, Rogers.
Here's the thing.
Out of eight times the last eight times we played the Titans, Derrick Henry has gotten 100 yards on us twice.
Not too worried.
I'm more worried about Tannehill OK than Derrick Henry.
Because Tannehill is a patient quarterback who can move.
He's very mobile, um, and makes good decisions.
I mean, look, all you gotta do is go look at his stats.
He's completing almost 66% of his passes.
He's got about 2000 yards.
He's averaging almost eight yards of pass, 19 touchdowns, toe, three interceptions.
He's got over a 109 quarterback rating.
He is quietly having almost m v p type numbers.
Okay, worry about him because a guy like him will take a part of a cover to deep. It's like the Colts.
That's what I'm worried about.
That is what I'm worried about.
Brandon asked me thoughts on your wide receivers and tight ends versus the Titans secondary.
Because I think the Titans secondary is underrated.
I think our tight ends are probably the most underrated tight ends in the NFL now.
Jack Doyle won't be playing in this game.
9% sure he won't play in this game because he suffered a concussion Sunday.
But we still have Trey Burton and Mo Alley, Cox and Moheli.
Cox has been quietly having a very good season, coming down with two or three or four big time catches every game there are.
You can't put a linebacker on him because he's too fast.
You can't put a safety on him because he's too big, is an ex basketball player power forward that now plays tied in and is doing a really, really good job.
Yeah, I've seen that, too, that he has any issues.
I think our wide receivers might have a little bit of problem.
If Marcus Johnson to get on the same page with Philip Rivers this game, I think he's gonna have one or two big catches off 30 plus yards.
Is that new Chargers defensive back going to be playing Thursday.
That's what I'm curious about for the Titans, Brandon.
That's that's my question to you.
If you could answer that, I'd really appreciate that.
If you don't know him, please go give him a follow.
Do you think Ballard will draft offense heavy this offseason? Seems like he'll probably will, but he'll he'll.
He'll grab defensive line and probably a corner, because those are just two positions that you could never, ever have enough.
I mean, they started the year off with 10 defensive lineman on their 53 55 man roster.
NFL teams now have 55 man rosters instead of 53.
Man roster is because of what's going on, So I just let you know, probably.
So he probably will be playing.
That's That's what I'm curious about, Um, that he's a He's a good defensive back, All right, So, uh, I don't know.
Pittman and Marcus Johnson are the two guys that I'd be most worried about on the Colts, but they got to get on the same page, and, like I said, I would love to see the Colts run a lot of two back formations and run just option plays, even if it's a pass option play, you know, for Rivers.
I'm not asking him to do a run option.
You know, whether it just run the ball, hand the ball off the one guy or pitch it out to the other or fake both step back and then throw a quick screen or slant or something.
I'd like to see a lot of that against the Tennessee Titan.
Tennessee Titans are built.
I love the Tennessee Titans line back in group, by the way, just F Y I.
They're not quite as good as the Colts linebacking corps, but there are very solid linebacking corps.
I mean, overall, the Titans have a pretty decent defense.
Oh, good Lord, Brian says, Please, no.
43 passes for Rivers.
Run the **** ball.
Agreed. Please run the ball.
Run the stinking.
But I don't care if the team behind just running the ball now, because at least Heinz knows how to be patient behind the line and wait for the blocks toe open up and then hit those.
That's the problem with Johnson Taylor right now is that he does not.
He's used to a man power blocking scheme which holes open up immediately.
Suzy has the ball in the hole is there.
He knows where to go and he hits it and a zone blocking scheme.
It could take a moment before that scheme actually gets that hole opened up.
That needs to be there, and then he hits it and he's just not having the patience to do that.
I don't know if t y will even be in this game.
He's already went out because Brian says that he hopes t why has quite a good game.
He may not even play.
He says he's not even sure if he'll be allowed to play this week.
He's still questionable.
So who knows? No, I haven't gotten any news from They're still quiet on that front.
They've been asked the coaches.
I've been asked about Paris Campbell phase and they refused to answer.
They say he they just keep saying that he's in his, uh, recovery, so still waiting and that they're quiet till last second.
Another guy that I'd love to hear about right, Kemoko, Toray, that's someone I'd like to know a little bit about.
Is he gonna be up playing? He's been practicing for a couple of weeks now.
Is he gonna play? My goodness, I would love to have Kemoko Turay against this against this offensive line because of his speed and bend.
That's something that you could get Ryan Tannehill with a speedy player, speedy defense.
And that's the good thing about the cultures.
You know, They're They're very speedy.
So what are we going to do? What are some predictions that we have for this game? Because this is gonna This is something that that's gonna be interesting.
Um, I think the colts defense will hold hold them down.
But can the court offense get going against a pretty decent Tennessee defense? I don't think the tendency. I'm sorry.
This fly is bugging the heck out of me.
I don't think Tennessee is going tohave more than 250 yards passing.
I don't think they're gonna have more than 100 yards rushing on the Colts, but But I do think that this defense can give the Colts offense troubles.
That's what I'm worried about.
Okay? I don't mind him overthrowing as long as you don't under throw like he's been doing, that's the biggest problem.
Pays that interception.
That quote, air quote, interception that happened on Sunday against the Ravens that wasn't under throw.
He needed to throw that ball 10 yards further downfield when he threw that football, but he didn't.
What's up, swaggy? Hey, guys, if you're watching this and you don't know, please go check out swag Ease channel on YouTube.
He's a Colts fan.
Um, give him a follow.
He does a lot of a lot of different stuff as well.
Culture interested in Donald per Source.
I am interested in Sam Donald, My guys, if the Jets are interested, I'll tell you what, right.
I'll tell you what.
The Jets look pretty good under Joe Flacco against what it's supposed to be.
One of the better pass defense is in the NFL in New England and Joe Flacco look pretty good if Joe continues to have a decent season and looks better than Sam Donald and the Jets air like we'll trade Sam Donald, I'd give them a second round pick right now.
I'd give him a second in 1/4 right now, for Sam.
Donald, that would be awesome.
I take Sam Donald in the heartbeat.
Him and Eastern together give us two young quarterbacks that could fight for it.
And whoever is best can take the dengue on reins of the starting quarterback.
Long term for the Colts.
I'll do a third, and then it's a done deal.
Uh, tidal says prefers Dak.
Now, the problem with that is how we gonna pay him? Because that is gonna want $40 million.
We gotta pay, Nelson.
He's gonna be close to 20 mil.
We gotta pay Darius Leonard.
He's gonna be one of those close to $20 million players.
That's 40 million right there.
Are you kidding me? Plus, there's other players on the Colts team that we're gonna have to resign.
It's going to cost money like Mohali Cox.
He ain't gonna cost a ton, but he's gonna cost some.
I want to keep Anthony Walker.
I'd like to resign.
That's the problem.
And Grover Stewart, I like back.
He's just going to cost the colts way too much money, way too much money.
That's that's my only issue.
I'd rather have a great team with a good quarterback, then. Okay, team.
Because you had to, like a lot of your big time hard core pieces.
Go to get a great quarterback.
I don't want this defense to fall apart.
That's just flat fact.
You see Matt off the Achilles injury? It'll take nine months for him to get back, get running around on that football.
That'll that'll give Mac enough time to go to the Colts and show if he still has it.
Well, see, I want to see if he still has the same burst and cuts that he had last year.
As for T y, he's gonna have to come in order for us to resign.
In my opinion, he's not only gonna have to come back this week or next week, but he's got to stay healthy the rest of the season, and he's gonna have to increase his performance. 300%.
That's that's just what I'm saying.
Yeah, I miss Andrew.
We got we got a Miss Andrew Luck.
Wow, Andrew luck hasn't been mentioned in my streams and probably three weeks and swaggy brings him in.
Yes, I miss Andrew.
Luck to everybody, Miss.
Can you imagine? I hate doing the what ifs.
But if Andrew Luck was the quarterback right now, the Colts right now good chance colts probably be, uh, eight.
No, and ready to go run down the field for a Super Bowl.
But those air whatis those were just whatis You know what's funny? Everyone said that Philip Rivers, you know, touchdown prone or interception prone.
He's on pace to throw 13 interceptions this year.
Andrew Luck threw less than 13 interceptions one time in his career and 13 interceptions on a season.
Ain't that bad? Like I said, Rivers had that pick.
It shouldn't even been a pick.
I'm really interested about the Michael Harris.
We'll see what happens.
I mean, the last couple of times he was brought up from the practice squad, he showed out a little bit.
Now he's signed on to the Colts 55 man roster, so we'll see him.
We'll see how he works out.
You'll probably see two or three plays with him against the Titans.
That would be a good thing. Toe.
Keep a hold off.
Watch out for because I mean, didn't doing that's on high are right now the other speedster that we I caught that fly with my hand I guess reached up and caught the fly with my hand I caught it with my hand I just nen Jered that fly out of midair.
Yeah, well, that didn't look good on camera sounds.
That fly is all screwed up.
Yeah, but hopefully, Grasshopper, it's time for me to leave the temple.
Brian said I've caught flies out of midair multiple times in my life.
Probably, uh, well, generally, I've got more focused.
I'm not sitting here doing a podcast with you guys, but I've done it many, many times over my life.
It's all about figuring out where the flies going, not where it's at, but anyhow.
All right, guys, man, we've been here for about 50 minutes.
Now, this is a great stream.
But ladies and gentlemen, this is a podcast, and I can't let it go over an hour.
You guys not just colts throw some suggestions in the chat right now, over the next five minutes on what kind doesn't have to be Colt.
Anything in the NFL? What is my film room breakdown Going to be for tomorrow on SportsCastr.
What is it going to be about? It could be about anything.
I did tour last week.
I don't know if you guys saw it.
I was dead on the money.
I said to it wasn't wasn't bad on his debut as a starter and that he would play better the next week that his numbers will be better because he was accurate.

And you know what? It it wasn't It wasn't Cam Newton's fault.
Cam Newton played well.
Flacco played well.
