you talk about Logan? I'm still wishing I got so much I want to talk about guys.
Uh, still got no one in here quite yet, but that's okay.
We got we got people in here.
I do have a couple of people on SportsCastr Charm City.
What's up, man? Brandon? Appreciate you being here, man.
Colts, Jags that sucked, didn't it? Um, but I've been telling everybody, but the Jags passing attack was just It's good, right, Gardner, Unless you get some serious pressure on him, he's got receivers.
And that running back, that undrafted free agent running back.
Robinson man, he showed some serious serious stuff.
Um, people think that the jags air that that they're tanking.
And that's not the team I saw yesterday.
Not in the least little bit.
They were fighting the whole time.
And they got plenty of skill on offense.
Yes, they lost a lot of defense of skill, but C J Henderson, that rookie who? My goodness, It's like they didn't even lose Jalen Ramsey.
Henderson was everywhere.
First thing I want to talk about those Marlon Mack man loss of max up.
He did, But you've got also got to remember I mean, he threw 80% completion, right? One of the interceptions, Frank Wright said it was on him that he called that play and he told him to throw it to T Y on that one play.
And I don't think Rivers seen the underneath guy and the other pick.
That was just a bad decision.
It was just a bad decision.
Eso You could put one of those interceptions on him, the other one on Frank Reich.
But, I mean, he had 360 yards, 80% completions had decent YAC yardage, Mac, though.
Good Lord, he was doing so well.
And then he goes out with the Achilles tear and it like it completely flipped.
Like the feeling of the football game, didn't it? I mean, it completely flipped the feeling of that game.
Um, man, I I hated seeing that.
I hope to God, I hope to God that Mac makes it back.
I mean, that's usually about 11 months freaking rehab on Achilles tear.
11 months and I don't know it might be possible, but Colts signed Mac to ah, smaller deal.
Mac might be willing now to take a one or two year deal on a smaller deal in the hopes of staying with the team, because it might be difficult for him to find another team after an Achilles injury.
And the Colts might take that chance for next year.
Yes, it's time to use, but Jonathan Taylor had nine carries yesterday for under three yards of carry.
He has a problem, and I made this pretty evident in my breakdown of Taylor when he was drafted.
Taylor has a problem of being really tunnel vision when it comes to going after the whole, the direction he's supposed to go.
No matter if there's a hole there or not right, he'll he'll hit it.
He won't sit and wait, and for the blocks to appear and then hit, hit a hole or break it outside or something like that.
And that was shown very evidently.
That's a good question, Brandon, about what happened to the defense.
No live tackling and there was no pre season.
There was no live tackling in the off season.
There was almost every NFL game you saw there was, you know it's it's gonna take them a few games at least two games to really get it down.
There was some bad tackling.
There was, ah, situation that long touchdown, tequila and coal in the end zone.
That was Xavier coming up, biting on the play action and losing coal on a crossing route.
And as soon as he bit because Cole wasn't running straight at him, he crossed over the middle.
There was no way he was catching him, right, So that's what happened.
I mean, when it comes, most teams, you're gonna have ugly.
Defense's early on and I don't see the Colts being any different.
I mean, it's gonna take some time to get back into the rhythm, especially when it comes to tackling.
I expect my Week three.
You'll see the cults that you're expecting to see.
It's gonna be interesting because the Vikings air coming up next week.
That's gonna be a tough game.
Vikings have got Yannick and dog way.
I'm pretty sure that's that.
Or is that the Rams? I can't remember.
Uh, let me look real quick.
I get the Rams in the Vikings mixed up.
Sometimes you're right.
It did seem that way that he was having all the success running out, and then most well, here's the thing about Max.
Outside runs a lot of the times when he breaks it out time, he breaks it outside on purpose.
It's It's usually meant to go in between the tackles, but he'll see if if there's not the whole that he likes, he'll break it outside.
And Taylor don't do that.
Heinz will do that occasionally.
Heinz did better than Taylor did running the football.
Which is speaking of which, another bad decision by Frank, right? Why do you have no him? Heinz running the football on fourth and one when you got Jonathan Taylor at the time? You have Jonathan Taylor, Marlon Mack and Jordan Wilkins, all three of which can run between the tackles.
Why do you have a buck? 50 scatback running it? I don't get it.
He did do a pretty good job, so I don't I don't understand why you would have, um, Heinz running the football in that situation.
I just I don't now I get having Heinz run the football occasionally because otherwise when you put them out there, teams they're just gonna know for a flat fact that, you know, Heinz is gonna go out for a swing pass, and you don't want them that you want the defense toe.
Always guess, But on fourth and one, it's not a time to be, you know, uh, little tricky, right? It's timeto put your guys down there.
You know, you've got a good offensive line.
They got power, Use your power back, run the **** ball up the middle with a power back and pick up that yard.
Another questionable thing that I had was when they were in the red zone and it was, like, first and goal at, like, the 15 or something like that, because they just suffered some sort of penalty.
E think it was illegal formation on Smith.
I think they should have took three shots at the end zone.
They had 15 to 25 yards for 15 to 20 yards to throw the football in the end zone.
And that is your prime target area for Rivers.
That's where he likes to throw the football.
I would have done it.
I would have had I would have had Pittman.
I would have had Paschal.
I would have had Campbell out there, all three of them, because I think those who your three best in zone targets and I just took three shots at the end.
So instead of trying to run it a couple times and then doing a little swing pass, which got freaking blew up, Harrison asked, Do I think Taylor is ready to be RB one, or do we need to bring in a veteran like Devante Freeman? I don't think Taylor is ready to be RB one, but I don't think we need to go out and get another veteran running back, because I honestly think that Jordan Wilkins is good enough to hold down the fort as an R B one.
The average is 5.
8 yards a carry for his career in the NFL.
Why he didn't get any carries after Mac went down is completely beyond me.
Completely beyond me.
Why they went away from the running game After Mac went down, they had 22 carries in 45 passes.
That's less than half Frank Wright says.
Oh, I wanna be a 60 40.
I got news flash.
You were Mawr 66 33 or more like 70 30 right? You was Mawr 70 30.
In that aspect, I would not.
I would have ran the ball more.
I would have ran the ball on more sweeps.
I did like a lot personally.
Waas the fact that when they had Jonathan tailor and the him Heinz in the backfield at the same time, because that's a scary situation, right? Heinz went out one way.
Taylor went out the other, whichever way the running back or the linebackers moved to you, throw to the other, running back.
That time it was to Jonathan Taylor.
And Taylor took off with that football, right? I mean, he went.
Heinz would have done the same thing had they had the linebackers shifted towards Taylor.
I want to see more of those type of plays.
These swing passes, the running backs and and and running back screens and stuff.
Rivers is like luck.
He throws a good catchable pass two running backs out of the backfield, close by, Unlike Philip Door set, Philip.
Sorry, Jacoby Brissett.
Yeah, you've seen It was very evident.
The running backs got a ton of catches this game Zachary agrees with me.
Wilkins needs more carries.

I am the SportsCastr news ****yst for the NFL.
I do like to screams every stinking day over on SportsCastr covering something or someone for the NFL.
So I appreciate you guys doing that.
All right, So, no.
Am I distraught after the game? I was incredibly distraught, and But I didn't want to do this report until today because I wanted to be a little bit more level headed, be able to go over the film a little bit.
Look at the place, See what happened.
Okay? And personally, Jacksonville had some really good plays, and they've got some really dangerous players on that team.
Offensively, Robinson is an absolute beast.
It running back for undrafted free agent.
Okay, He's got a little bit of exploring him, but, I mean, he's got power to him to, um, obviously with their receivers.
Shark killing coal.
Right. Alan, they've got receivers.
They've got tied in.
I think I for as well they've got They've got a good offense.
Yes, the culture is supposed to have a good defense, but sometimes early on, man, like I said, when you don't have pre season it, it makes it tough to tackle because you haven't been live tackling in six months.
What do you expect? It's gonna take time for this team to get to get everything down.
Frank, right, needs to use what he has.
Don't get too cute.
Bring out Acute play once in a while when you're able to.
If it's like 1st and 10 you want to use, Ah, little trickery.
That's that's perfectly OK by me.
I would have went forward on fourth and one in the right, up on the line, fourth and fourth and one inside the 10 yard line, I would have kicked the field goal.
Nothing, no questions asked. I would have done that.
That would have changed the outlook of the game, possibly going forward because it was still in the first half.
Instead, you didn't and then the Jacksonville Jaguars got the football, and you get yet no points, no points.
If you are tied or have the lead and you have an opportunity to get points, take the points.
I understand if it's fourth and one inside the red zone, you're down 10 and Onley five minutes left in the or down eight or something, and it's only like five minutes left in the fourth quarter going for it. That's fine.
But at that point in the game, take the point.
It was raining in Jacksonville on and off the entire game.
You know, things are gonna happen that probably had a lot to do with the Miss tackles that was happening throughout the game.
Too slippery when wet, right? I mean, you know this. I know this.
I think the game against the Vikings is gonna be a fun one, But we can't focus too hard on the Jacksonville game.
I hate the fact that Marla Matt got hurt.
The Paris Campbell Paris Campbell looked solid, though, and I was right in Priest before the game.
In training camp, I was like Paris.
Campbell is going to have himself a season who led the NFL in in receiving or lead the team in receiving yardage? Well, yesterday para freakin Campbell.
And a lot of that with yards after catch, Paris Campbell had himself a game.
He's going to continue tohave himself games.
One thing I would like to Seymour off is wide receivers.
When the ball is thrown immediately, go into blocking mode as soon as you know that that past is not to you go into blocking mode, toxic Tommy talking about the bad news about Marlon.
Yeah, there was a play later in the game where rivers through it to a, um, drag her out that Paris Campbell was running over the middle and there was a chance he could have made that first down had Zach Paschal turned around and block his guy out.
But because he didn't block his guy out, his guy that was covering him ran right past him and tackled.
No, it wasn't. It wasn't Paschal.
It was Naeem Heinz.
The him Heinz the running back because he was on a swing route.
If he had just got in front of that cornerback that was covering him, Paris Campbell would have had a first down, but he didn't do it.
I don't care how small you are.
If you just run in front of somebody to make them adjust their angle and start off a little slower, that's going to create extra yards for the guy that's running, sometimes a good block doesn't mean a pancake or even having your hands on the guy just stepping in front of them and making them go around you is help.
So I want to Seymour of that from our receivers.
Pittman will put his hands on guys.
Well, you'll see t y put his hands on guys.
My God, You've got to be able to do that once in a while.
Paschal generally always puts his hand on guys, you know, for blocking.
I love that Annabelle.
Thanks for joining over here on SportsCastr.
I appreciate that.
So, what are your guys? Thoughts on the game? All right, if you're watching right now, was there any positive that came out of this for you? Or negatives that I haven't covered? One negative one.
Another negative that I did.
I didn't like Hot Rod.
Missed a chip shot, right? He missed a chip shop.
He hit a longer field goal earlier in the game and then missed like a 20 yard chip shot.
It was about as far as what the extra point used to be a few years ago, and he hooked that bad boy bad man.
That sucked well, but it's okay.
I mean, we could get over that.
I like the fact that river is completed 80% of his passes.
Oh, I get someone said that it was tipped.
I didn't see it.
I've got the tape.
I didn't go over and look over it again.
I'll have to look it over.
And if it was tipped, I'll post a video about that on Twitter.
All right, I didn't see that. It was tipped.
If it was OK still at that.
At that short of distance, you would think that you'd be able to put the ball a little bit higher and not have to drive so that it wouldn't be tipped.
And there's my thoughts.
I mean, if you're inside the 20 kicking a field goal, wouldn't you want to get under the ball a little bit more? So it goes higher, faster so that the people on the offensive line would not, you know, get a chance of getting up and tipping it.
I mean, I'm not a professional NFL kicker by any means, but that's just my thoughts.
I could be wrong, but I think that's I think that's something that you would do.
Um, I don't know what else to talk about, man.
I don't have a lot of people in here right now.
Don't forget to hit the like button, please.
I appreciate that.
And share over on SportsCastr.
I appreciate you guys as well.
We're gonna end up.
I'm gonna find someone who knows the Vikings so we could gonna get a little bit of Oh, look at that.
Oh, my cat shadow decided to say hi.
Ah, I think that we're gonna end up having a lot of fun.
I think the colts it's no time to panic.
No time to panic whatsoever.
I think the Colts will be able to get everything squared away.
I just hate the fact that we lost Mac for the season because he did everything so well.
I am a huge fan of Marlon Mack And now, with an Achilles injury, I don't know if he's going to be the same running back anymore.
I just I don't I hope so.
And I wish him the best of luck, but I just don't know if he will be, but anyhow, guys, I appreciate you all being here.
I'm gonna jump off here.
I think that we did a good job of breaking down the game Harrison hype.
Hey, what do we need to do about our free for all defense? Then she will only have one to be fair zone.
Defense does that a lot.
You give up a lot of high completion percentage.
It's about catching the ball in front of them and then coming up making the tackle.
Now the Colts did place the man coverage, that touchdown, the keel and Cole was man coverage.
And it was just a broken play by Xavier Rhodes because he bit on a play action pass and wasn't able to get back into position against coal on the crossing route.
And no one else on this defense was able to do anything.
Hooker was trying to get over there, but he was being blocked out due to a perfect route by Shark blocking him out from getting over there to cover work.
Hole was out there, uh, over there on the corner of the end zone.
So I would like to see the Colts play a little bit more, man, though, because quite frankly, I think Rocky Sin and, um, Kenny More and Xavier Rhodes all play very good man coverage.
I'd also like to see the Colts send a little bit more blitzes than what they did.
I mean, they got some pressure from time to time on Gardner Minshew just rushing for for the majority of the game.
But I think we should send more.
More than just four.
Ah, lot more often than two or three times a game.
Especially early on.
Yes, the culture.
I think they had four sacks that game.
I'm pretty sure that was for ***.
I don't well, rivers get sacked. Once.
I think it was It was pretty generic.
Mac might resign for cheap if he doesn't catch the eyes of any team.
Yeah, I was, as I was talking about earlier, Mac might be able to resign because most teams ain't gonna want to sign somebody often.
So the colts might take a chance on him.
Uh, depending upon what Preseason are like what the off season's like if we're still under this Kobe 19 thing where players can't come in and work out, Uh, we're during the off season next year, like they did this past year.
All the teams are gonna have issues.
But our team knows exactly what Marlon Mack looks like.
And if he looks any worse, I mean, it's It's up to an 11 months rehab for an Achilles tear, so it's gonna be a while before he's ready.
Alright, guys, I appreciate everyone being here, but I got to get ready for my stream.
Do you feel the offense was really a strong as they could have been? No, I think they were strong, I think.
Our Nick Nav singer, I think that she's watching me over on SportsCastr.
I just noticed I clicked over.
Yeah, honestly, I think the Colts could have ran the ball a little bit differently.
They should have ran a lot MAWR.
They could have tired the defense out more for the second half, so they could have done a lot more explosive plays in the second half.
That's just my thoughts on that.
They kind of gave up on the run.
Um, after this, after Marlon Mack went down with his injury.
Alright, guys, thanks everybody for joining me here.

Reese says the first drive was perfect.
After that, they should have ran And they did.
They didn't run much.
That was That's my biggest problem.
They didn't run the ball nearly as much.
They did not run it nearly enough.
Well, you also got to remember toxic.
Tommy says something, um, that the Colts didn't seem to want to throw the long ball.
Yeah, man, it was raining from the majority of that game, so River probably didn't want to throw the long ball in the rain too much.
Are we underestimating Harrison hype? Are we underestimating the Jaguars this season? I think they are.
I think I said it before the game ever started.
I think that the offense is definitely underrated.
Henderson playing the way he's playing, that gives them a lot down corner to lock down a team's number one wide receiver.
So the Jaguars are a better team than what a lot of people believe they are.
But I got to get ready for my my NFL SportsCastr news stream covering Monday Night football games tonight, so I'm gonna have to be jumping off here.
But I appreciate everyone that was here with all the talk.
