Colts Cast: A cursory look at how the Colts stack up against

Postby panxing18 » Sun Nov 04, 2018 6:27 pm

we begin to look at the Indianapolis Colts Week 2 opponents Joe Haeg Jersey , the Washington Redskins. The Colts were first half warriors last week, but the Redskins put nearly all of their points up in the second quarter. What does this mean, if anything? Maybe nothing, but we do know that the Colts are going to have to be much better late in the game if they’re going to stand a chance in Washington.The Colts will be dealing with an extremely efficient quarterback in Alex Smith, a resurgent Adrian Peterson, a do-it-all running back in Chris Thompson, tight ends Jordan Reed and receivers Jamison Crowder, Paul Richardson and Josh Doctson. How will the Colts’ defense deal with, and limit this offensive attack?On the other side of the ball Andrew Luck will be seeing another impressive defense across the line of scrimmage from him. Jonathan Allen Authentic J'Marcus Webb Jersey , Daron Payne, Ryan Kerrigan, Ryan Anderson, Preson Smith, Zach Brown, Quinton Dunbar and Josh Norman will be working within Greg Manusky’s scheme to tear up the Colts’ protective shield up front, and disrupt Luck and the timing based offense that Frank Reich is scheming up for them.Can Luck and this minimal bunch of playmakers find success on the road? Anthony Castonzo should be back, and hopefully Marlon Mack, but we have to believe that the receiver corps will really have their hands full. I ramble on all of this on today’s Colts Cast Youth Chester Rogers Jersey , and a reminder to be on the lookout for some exciting news on the podcast front.

The defense has been playing very fast and has an entirely different personality from the one a year ago. The offense is hitting on all cylinders early and has been efficiently directed by Frank Reich and Andrew Luck. The pace on offense in the first half had the Bengals defensive line visibly exhausted, which should pay dividends in the second half.Let’s revisit the keys to the game and see how things have been going after two quarters.Colts Tight Ends vs. Bengals Linebackers and SecondaryWe have already seen the impact of utilizing tight ends Eric Ebron, Jack Doyle and Erik Swoope in the first half. All have been able to take advantage of mismatches against linebackers in coverage. Eric Ebron’s touchdown occurred while in man coverage with a linebacker. The tight ends are the only players getting in on the act in the short-middle zones. Running backs have also been targeted on dump-off passes in short-zones and have been taking advantage of Cincinnati’s weakness in this area of the field. Colts Offensive Line vs. Bengals Pass RushOutside of a couple of holding penalties, the offensive line has been doing a nice job. They have been aided by a heavy dose of quick release passes and shorter routes. They have also been aided by keeping the Bengals defense guessing by using a lot of different offensive weapons and keeping players fresh in the backfield. Joe Haeg has been doing a nice job at left tackle.Backfield Answers?How about all of them? Jordan Wilkins got the start and continues to display excellent vision and one step burst to get through the hole when it is there. Nyheim Hines has been a huge surprise after a lackluster preseason and has certainly been used in a lot of different ways. There has been a great deal of motion pre-snap in the backfield to create space and mismatches as well.At this point, it is exciting to imagine how dynamic the backfield could be when Mack and Turbin return.Can Matt Eberflus Manufacture Pressure on Andy Dalton?Pressure has been inconsistent in the first half but it has also helped keep the Bengals out of the end zone and helped force a turnover. Al Woods batted pass early in the game that was picked off by Kenny Moore. Denico Autry batted down a pass that ended a drive in the red zone and forced Cincinnati to take a field goal. We still need to see the edge rush get to work.Opportunism on DefenseKenny Moore picked up an interception off of the Al Woods batted pass. Matthias Farley forced A.J. Green to fumble and Darius Leonard recovered it. This is a big deal as we head into the second half.
