  • The Colts, TNF

    We might be getting a bunch of looks at Philip Lindsey Thursday night, given that Jonathan Taylor is dinged up.

    Colts tied the Texans in game one, got crushed by the Jags in game two, beat the Chiefs in game three and lost to the Titans in game four. They seem to play better outside of their own division (which is not a good thing, for them, anyway). Broncos are favored by about 3.5. The Colts' coach, Frank Reich, is starting to feel the heat as well.

    Colts: another Jekyl and Hyde team. Hard to pick this one. If Taylor is out, I like the Broncos chances. If Taylor plays, ???

          The Denver Broncos continue to work through their game plan for Thursday Night Football against the Indianapolis Colts. Tuesday was another “simulated” practice, so these are just estimations on where players are at. Caden Sterns went from DNP to limited, so that would be good news there. Both Dalton Risner and K’Wuan Williams moved from limited to full.

          Week 4 would have been the first week the Broncos could have activated both cornerback Michael Ojemudia and rookie tight end Greg Dulcich from injured reserve. It seems Head Coach Nathaniel Hackett is content to start their return clock next week.

          “Yeah, we haven’t activated their clocks right now,” Hackett said. “We wanted to be sure we got them some practice. So obviously we can still potentially play them, but we just want to do the right thing for them.”

          For the Colts, they got some good news regarding star running back Jonathan Taylor who is working back from a high ankle sprain. He apparently feels a lot better today, but that wasn’t enough for the team to suggest he would be a limited participant in practice. The rumors are that he’ll be a go, but anyone who has watched football for a long time knows how nagging an ankle injury can be. It might be wise to sit him this week... at least from my orange and blue perspective!

          Here is your full Broncos-Colts practice participation report for Tuesday.


          The Denver Broncos had another estimation of practice on Tuesday, but a few players look like they are progressing the right direction to play on Thursday.

            With Wilson injured and Outten demanding Gordon is getting most the touches this will be loss number 3. I’m guessing Gordon’s fumble comes in the 2nd quarter. Home teams have done great on Thursday’s this year. That trend will change this game.

              It’s funny that you think Outten is calling the offense.

                Don’t say mean things to Matt Ryan. It’s highly frowned upon these days.

                I wonder what Chris Jones said. Maybe a yo mama joke from the 90s?

                  With your mouth or mine these players would all be getting flags every play. Hahaha...

                  Y'all should start a media blast going #sticksandstones and showing a gif of that flag.

                  Cause I really don't like KC. (Hate the Raiders)
                  But I love football. And that call was the wussiest snowflake penalty. It is one rare moment where I was actually going "WTF? That's Bogus!" About a KC penalty.

                I don’t. I’m repeating what he said in the press conference today.

                    Matt Ryan is a mummy in the pocket. This is a game Gregory did not want to miss. Great opportunity for Browning. Even if Jonathan Taylor plays, he will not be 100%. The Broncos should win this one. Maybe the short week to prepare will lead to less overthinking on offense.

                      Melvin has 4
                      Matt Ryan has 9.

                      4 what? take a guess.

                      Indy is circling the drain. both HC and GM on the hot seat . Their locker room is a mess

                      Denver needs a sense of urgency to win this game.

                      Denver could lose to both LVR and Indy when they had an opportunity to eliminate both from the playoff race early.

                      scary game this Thursday

                            Melvin Gordon will go off tomorrow night. I suspect he will have 130+ rushing yards including a home run. The team is rallying around him and will do everything they can to see him have success tomorrow night. PS. He will not fumble.

                              Interior OL has struggled for years now picking up blitzes, stunts, etc. Any versatile movement from defensive fronts or kicking back inside destroys them.

                              Glasgow looks absolutely terrible. IMHO, he is the biggest liability out there.

                              Risner looks lost half the time. Always looking back at Russ. Has had numerous whiffs pulling in the run game. Something isn't right there.

                              Cushenberry's functional strength is still not good. Struggled against the Raiders and DEN had nothing going on the inside for most the game.

                              Out of all three of them, I'd give LCIII the benefit of the doubt. He has had a revolving door of absolute nobodies beside him in his two years. You keep him for a fourth season and let him play out his rookie deal. Certainly upgradable, but I'd move on from Glasgow (cut) and let Risner walk this off-season.

                                Agreed 100%.

                                I really wish Muti could develop a football brain, because he's physically very gifted and would seem to fix these issues. But I keep asking myself - could he really be worse than what we're watching? The answer is probably yes since it just takes one good pass rush to end Wilson's season, but why not even on goal line plays? Seriously - if Muti is active on gameday, why isn't he in on scrum plays of 1 yard or less?

                                  FA is not where you get value in the Oline so I not concerned with building a Oline with FA $$. Over paid mediocre talent is primarily what you have in FA.

                                  Denver just needs to make Oline a priority in the draft. The fallacy is we are doomed without a 1st or 2nd round pick. Rookie 6th round pick Slayer started for LAC last week at LT replacing Slater and got a game ball. O Brown was a 3rd round pick as was the Belly who's run blocking is missed.

                                  GB and Ravens are great at finding quality Oline after round 2. It can be done and done well.

                                  Matt Hennessy who they wanted to trade up for before selecting Cush is 2nd string C in ATL sitting behind a 4th round pick.

                                    Invest in the draft for sure, but they are going to have to try FA to acquire at least one OL since they are short on picks + have multiple in-house FA.

                                      I'll also say that IF we can get him healthy - Compton would be a hell of a guard. If we get to the point where we see Bolles-Compton-Cush-Meinerz-(either RT), I think we would see what we are capable of.

                                          I don’t know of this is good or bad. Taylor’s been pretty “meh” this year. I could see Nyheim Hines going off.

                                            I could 100% see this happening.

                                            "For the first time in his career, Hines has rushed for 100 yards and has 100 yards in receptions. Truly a game for the ages for him. Back to the game, Denver on offense facing a 3rd and 23."

                                              Reich’s seat is warm, if not on fire. The guy has had Rivers, Wentz, and now Ryan. He’s done nothing with all 3. I think the only team with more hype than the Broncos coming into this season were the Colts.

                                              I believe Irsay said on the Mcafee show in training camp that this was the best roster he’s ever seen as owner. Assuming the Broncos win, at 1-3-1 Reich might be the first coaching casualty of 2022.
