Colts vs Texans - Edwin Jackson memorial

Recommended Posts

This week, the Colts will pay tribute to former LB Edwin Jackson who was killed in Feb. (along with Uber driver Jeffrey Monroe) by a drunk driver (sentenced to 16 years)

Players will wear an "EJ" helmet decal while coaches and staff will don an "EJ" lapel pin, and before the game the Colts will present Jackson's family with a $25,000 donation to the Edwin Jackson 53 Foundation.

The Texans are currently winless (0-3) and just lost their home opener to the NY Giants last week.

After watching pro football for 50 years I have never a coach make a stupid move like that to give a game away. If this clown isn't fired tonight there is something wrong.

I agree with Reich, but I do think the playcall was horrible.

Hilton’s hamstring injury could keep him out Thursday. I’m sure Castonzo isn’t playing either and not sure about Doyle. But we are going to be hamstrung (pardon the pun) against NE.

Reich is 100% correct. This play for the tie stuff can go die in a hole somewhere. You play to win the game. That's it. Period. Belichick plays to win the game. Pederson plays to win the game. McVay plays to win the game. Now coaches like Vrabel and Reich are showing similar mindsets. That's how you win in this league. This isn't 1995 anymore where it's run, run, pass punt and just hope you don't lose. You make plays to win. Not plays to hopefully avoid a loss.

I like what we've been doing as a team thus far, We've lost 3 times but only by 18 points. Make some adjustments and I think we'll be fine.

A tie can be the difference between you going to the playoffs or being at home. I agree with doumeyer, that was one of the most foolish calls I've ever seen in the NFL, especially at the part of the field the Colts were at (own 40).
