Indianapolis Colts @ Seattle Seahawks - Preseason Week 1

Recommended Posts

GxdDg4Q.pngFootball is back!!!  Thursday, August 9th at 10pm EST the Indianapolis Colts travel to Seattle to take on the Seahawks.  It is going to be so great feel the atmosphere inside of CenturyLink Field.

Couple of things to watch out for:

*  I'm not 100% sure whether or not Andrew Luck is going to play Thursday night.  He has looked great in camp, so I'm really hoping everyone gets their first look at him in over a year.

* Great opportunity for some of the younger guys to battle for getting quality playing time in the regular season.  Shaquem Griffin is someone I have really high hopes for.  He got some starters reps at WLB a few days ago in camp.  Griffin is going to be such a high impact player in this league with his explosiveness and speed.

Here's to hoping for an injury free preseason game for both teams.

Things Im looking forward to seeing...

QB: Bet we will see alot of Alex McGlough. 

RB : Wanna see if Carson is as flashy as everyone at camp is saying. Really want to see Penny in action too. Is CJ healthy?

WR: Marcus Johnson has been doing work in camp, want to see if it translates into game action. 

TE: Dissly and Swoopes should be interesting to watch. 

OL: Will Fant be ready to play? Also, Heard great things about Jamarco Jones so far.

DL: Alot of injuries, so alot of opportunities. Poona Ford, Jacob Martin especially. 

LB: All eyes on 'Quem

DB: Tedric Thompson, Delano Hill, Mike Tyson, Mo Alexander, Tre Flowers, TJ Mutcherson all have chance to carve out a role on this team.

Also, Ifedis benching during the scrimmage really opens things up. I guess the pres-season might be his last chance to prove it. Isiah Battle took over, which probably means Fant is not close to being back healthy yet.

Ugh, I'm not able to watch the game where I'm at.  Saw some clips of Russell Wilson's time out there and he looks good.

Got the watch the first half.

 

Russell looked sharp. Only in completion was a 50/50 ball to Vannett in traffic. 

Chris Carson looks fully back from the injury. Ran hard, looks to be living up to all the accolades from this summer. 

Penny didnt get too many chances, but there was one run that was very impressive; made a guy miss in the backfield, blew around the corner. Made something from nothing. Him and Carson should be awesome together.

RW and Jarron Brown seem to have a nice connection. If Baldwin isnt 100 ready, Jarron could be RW go to man. 

Even with three guys out [Clark, Jordan, Smith] the defensive line showed alot of depth. Jefferson [heathly] could really be an important flex piece. Brandon Jackson could be the same. Rasheem Green was a spark on the outside and Martin also flashed some on the outside as well. "Quem was all over the field making plays. Him and Mingo could really bring some flash Seattle hasnt had from the WLB position since Bruce Irvin left. 

Tre Flowers held his own, considering he started at a position he never played. Coleman and Griffin [in small time] seem to be picking up where they left off last year. McDoug was all over the field, and both Thompson and Hill looked solid as well. 

Glad to see Fant back and playing. 

The Defense [as a whole; 2nd and 3rd units]  wasn't as stout as it has been in pre-seasons past. Something to keep an eye on moving forward. 

Back up offense played like dog poo.

Also, pretty much the entire 2018 class was involved.

1. R. Penny looks to be the No. 2 back, and should be splitting carries with Carson.

2. R. Green had 1.5 sacks, should have a solid role in the rotation 

3. W. Dissly had 2 catches should find himself on the field alot

4. S. Griffin lead the team in tackles

5. T. Flowers started at CB

6. M Dickerson established himself well. Should win the job

7. J. Jones should make the team as a 3rd tackle, injury is concerning

8. J Martin had sack, was around the ball alot. Could make the team, especially with all the injuries along the defensive line. 

 

Good sign thus far.

Great to hear.  I love Griffin so much.  Guy is going to be a great player in this league.
