Match-Ups That Matter: Bears at Colts

| October 6th, 2016

screen-shot-2016-10-05-at-10-02-39-am

I have Tweeted incessantly for the last three years about the disaster that is the Indianapolis Colts. They were given football’s greatest gift, a franchise quarterback directly on the heels of a franchise quarterback. And what have they done to support him? Nothing. Under the regime of Jim Irsay (who is as much to blame as anyone), Ryan Grigson (who might be the league’s worst GM) and Chuck Pagano, the Colts have failed to build Andrew Luck either an offensive line or a defense. They’ve signed fading veterans in free agency, drafted speedsters they don’t need and let supremely talented players – *cough* Jerell Freeman *cough* – walk out the door for no reason. This last item came to head in London where Freeman’s replacement, Sio Moore, was so bad he was thrown out of the team plane over the Atlantic Ocean.

On to the game…

BRIAN HOYER VS. THE HYPE

Yep, it’s a thing.

  • Hoyer is well-aware that his performances over the last two weeks are not just those a back-up quarterback filling in while the starter’s thumb is in a sling. Hoyer doesn’t have a lot more time left in this league and if he continues to deliver 300-yard, no interception efforts, and more importantly win, it will make the decision to pull him off the field a very difficult one for John Fox.
  • The Colts defense is one of the worst in the league and Hoyer is going to be tempted to throw the ball down the field with more frequency than he did last Sunday. But not succumbing to those desires is exactly what’s enabled him to play efficient football. Not having Kevin White running go routes down the field may make this a bit easier.

  • How will Hoyer respond if things don’t go well? What if he’s missing open receivers or tosses an early interception? What if Bobby Massie can’t hold the edge and he’s constantly under duress? It’d be interesting to see the journeyman handle some adversity. He saw very little Sunday against the Lions.

EDDIE ROYAL

VS.

PATRICK ROBINSON & WHOMEVER

  • While other players may have graded higher through four games (Sitton, Freeman), Eddie Royal has been the Bears MVP of the first quarter.
  • There was a time in the NFL when teams would take their best corner, point at the opponent’s best receiver and say, “cover him!” That has been tweaked over the years. Bill Belichick used to take Darrelle Revis and lock down the opponent’s number two, allowing him to double the one and shut down a passing attack. The new development is to stick your corners on one side of the field and leave them there, despite the opposing formation. Whatever the Pagano strategy was Sunday, it didn’t involve Vontae Davis on Allen Robinson for some reason. But it would be hard for me to fathom, with Kevin White out of this game, that Davis would be lined up on Cameron Meredith or Josh Bellamy or inside on Royal. And if he is, Alshon Jeffery may have a 200-yard game.
  • Royal simply looks better than he has in years. And knowing both his history, and the current trend of the 2016 Bears, he will want to maximize that burst he’s been displaying before venturing to IR with the rest of the roster.

The Bears, at full strength, would win this game. But full strength ain’t waking through that door.

  • SC Dave

    I’m eager to see how Howard does this week. I’m expecting a solid game from him.

    • Joecashflow

      Well, since they handed Freeman to us, and they threw Sio Moore out, I’m expecting another 20+ carries and 100. They are rookied up in the middle of the D line. Should fall right into Birdcage’s game plan. Expecting good play calling and expecting the Destroyer to look past the sticks occasionally on third downs. He was missing open first down opportunities last week, using the outlet too much.

      • SC Dave

        Not sure hiw many were missing guys and how many were improperly run routes. Probably a melange thereof.

  • MB30SD

    Omg, they killed their imlb?! Wish we’d done that last year

  • Malice Halice

    Reggie wayne blames the front office as well. There’s a sour taste in indy for sure. At least they had their run I mean they never missed 2 playoffs since 97 98. That was when they first got Peyton

  • Joecashflow

    I hope Irish is right. Would love to see Meredith make a positive contribution, so we don’t miss White. He gone and God knows when he’s back, but not likely this year. And Fuller, who knows if he gets his job back anyway. Man, this is a completely different team than just 60 days ago.

    • SC Dave

      I would call Howard and Whitehair big positives.

      And Meredith did look better than White in preseason. Although it was reasonable to attribute that to rustiness of White.

      • MB30SD

        4 – 28 -11

        BOOM!

      • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd BirdCagE = mc2(ButchDeadlift)

        And both Meredith and Bellamy have actually PLAYED in the system on gameday, so in the short term, might very well be better options than White.

        • willbest

          Meredith was demonstrably better than White. But you gotta give your draft pick opportunities. Of course those opportunities have now resulted in a 2nd year on IR

  • BerwynBomber

    Wish Cutty were ready to go. Have a feeling this is the week Hoyer reminds us why he is a journeyman. Yeah, the Colts suck, but they are also hungry, desperate for a win, and at home.

    Btw, was Irsay horrible when they had Peyton? Honest question. I don’t remember. Also, didn’t they draft a bunch of O-linemen for Luck this year? Might just take a year or two for those dudes to come into their own.

    But I don’t know why they re-upped on Pagano. That seemed nuts.

    • willbest

      The fact that 2 of the AFCS teams are dogshit each year hid a lot of sins. Peyton is great, but having 4 quasi-byes on your schedule every year really helps.

      • BerwynBomber

        Agree but I don’t remember thinking Irsay was a horrible owner in terms of personnel/FO decisions. Always a bit of a douche, of course, but not a guy who was fucking up a franchise QB’s ability to win.

        • CanadaBear

          He has some serious addiction issues so he may have had some pretty suspect judgement. Not trying to pile on the guy but most addicts aren’t exactly known for their work ethic or good judgement.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Another bad decision by their bad GM.

    • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd BirdCagE = mc2(ButchDeadlift)

      Bill Polian was seen as the architect behind those dominant Colt’s teams.

      He was a very good GM, but seemed to lose interest later, and handed off his duties to his sons.

      His son was like Fredo though, and they both got fired.

      • BerwynBomber

        That’s right! I had forgotten Polian.

    • Huge Bears Penis

      I think Irsay needs to go back to his cocaine and prescriptions drug benders. Since he supposedly sobered up the team has gone down hill.

  • BerwynBomber

    Random stat. Most blitzed QBs in the league this year:

    Winston 41% (of his drop backs)
    Rodgers 38%
    Taylor 36%
    Newton 33%
    Bortles 33%

    • SC Dave

      Wow… 41%. Was the list complete? Where were Cutty and Hoyer?

      • TomC

        Teams not named The Lions have not needed to blitz us.

      • willbest

        Cutler might not have enough to qualify. I think he only has 45ish passing attempts

    • Joecashflow

      The Roger’s one surprises me. He usually makes you pay. 4 TDS in first half against Indy.

  • SC Dave

    On Royal, I have to agree with Jeff. To me, a part of his raised valuation has been his assumption a leadership role. Perhaps more through example that exhortation, but i would not know on the latter.

    • willbest

      The only thing that separates him from Jeffery and Miller is his punt return.

      • EnderWiggin

        Simms said something the other day about Royal being one of the best route runners in the league. Does that count?

        • willbest

          And Jeffery is the best or second best contested ball catcher in the league. I am saying if you compare contributions through 4 weeks, between Miller, Jeffery, and Royal they all have very similar offensive production and they have all made key plays in crucial situations. The only meaningful difference is Royal ran one back on Special Teams.

    • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd BirdCagE = mc2(ButchDeadlift)

      Isn’t Royal dealing with his own inj right now? Could’ve sworn he was.

  • Scharfinator

    The biggest key to this game is how well we manage to run. If we can keep close, control the clock, and not ask Hoyer to do to much, it’s an easily winnable game.

    If the Colts start out strong early, Hoyer is going to struggle to bring us back.

    • Freddy G.P. Soft
      • CanadaBear

        I saw them in ’71. They were great live.

    • willbest

      Pretty much. If we spot them 10-14 points like we are prone to do, its going to be near impossible to get out of that hole. D needs to bring it from snap 1 again.

  • Freddy G.P. Soft

        • Sauron’s right eyeball

          Well?…..

  • CanadaBear

    Not sure how much it will affect them but Indy should be jet lagged like a mofo. Most teams take the bye after the trip to London. The Colts asked for a later bye. I hope they regret that decision. If Howard gets going I like the Bears chances. Who knows? Both teams could lose to anyone in the league.

    • willbest

      It’s only 5 hours, and it really not that bad to adjust flying back to the states from Europe. A noon game would just feel like a late game on their body clock at the worst.

      • CanadaBear

        We’ll see. I worked rotating 12.5 hour shifts for 30+ years. Pretty sure I know more about how the body deals with sleep deprivation.

        • AlbertInTucson

          And PISS on the entire “London Game” concept.

          • CanadaBear

            I really think the JAX owner is setting up for the move. Since he’s committed to 1 game/year through 2020 it seemed like the crowd was behind them. I could easily see him moving them over there.

          • BerwynBomber

            Fucking Goodell and his world domination dreams.

          • CanadaBear

            With ya all the way.

          • AlbertInTucson

            I have yet to hear a reasonable explanation of how that works, travel-wise, not to mention the “Screw that, I didn’t sign up to live in London” player factor.

          • CanadaBear

            Me either. There must be crazy money at stake. I could see the London team having 4 road games in a row, twice/year. Other than that, it would be a nightmare for any team in their division.

      • BerwynBomber

        Plus, it is damn near a full week afterward.

        • CanadaBear

          Riddle me this then. Why do almost all teams take their bye after the London game?

          • willbest

            In fairness it is pretty new. They just started multiple games last year or the year before. Somebody needs to be the first to try it.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Here’s hoping Jerrell Freeman reminds them how much they miss him.

  • Johnnywad

    If I’m Hoyer, I’m more focused on stringing together a few more games, not to keep Cutty in the bench, but to get McCown money. McCown turned three good games in a five game stretch into 2 more contracts and like $15M.

    • willbest

      Well it goes without saying that all football players should be concerned with their business. But in looking around the league there aren’t actually many openings for starting QBs for 2018, and there seems to finally be enough startable QBs in the league right now to meet the demand.

      Oz doesn’t look like one, but the Texans are stuck with him for next year. Chicago might move on from Jay, but then Jay becomes free to take a spot. Same with Carson Palmer, Kirk Cousins, etc. Maybe somebody kicks the tires on Tannehill though he is probably going to be an expensive backup next year I would imagine.

      Toss in 2-3 rookie QBs in next year’s draft and musical chairs will commence.

      • Johnnywad

        I couldn’t disagree more. Your post marks the first time I’ve seen in black and white that there is something close to a surplus of starter QB talent in the NFL. Brock Osweiler just got a $72M contract. And he’s not very good.

        • Scharfinator

          Wouldn’t someone not very good getting paid really well indicate a dearth of talent, not a surplus?

          • Johnnywad

            Seems that way. Perhaps Brock is better than I think he is. I.e. Only watched him play twice. But he sure didn’t pass the Johnnywad eye test.

          • willbest

            But this year’s supply and next year’s supply are two different things. Oz sucks and got paid. But then it got down to Fitz and NYJ and they had to come to a more reasonable accommodations.

      • http://www.dabearsbeat.com/ Johnathan Wood

        JAX will likely be replacing their youngster. Maybe MIA and/or BUF too. For sure CLE, NYJ, SF. Hell, maybe CHI.

        And often teams who draft a rookie want a guy like Hoyer around at $5-7M a year as a mentor and/or insurance.

        Like, if the Bears decide to move on from Cutler and draft somebody, I’ll bet they pony up some dough to keep Hoyer around.

        In fact, re-signing Hoyer shortly after the end of the season would be the first sign that Cutler is gone, IMO.

        • willbest

          Teams not in the market for a starter (19): Atlanta, Green Bay, Dallas, Pittsburgh, Oakland, San Diego, Philadelphia, Indianapolis, Detroit, Denver, Baltimore, Houston (they are stuck with Brock), Cincinnati, New Orleans, Seattle, New York Giants, Carolina, LA, New England.

          Teams that probably aren’t in the market for a new QB (5): Tampa Bay (a 65 QBR doesn’t usually get you fired), Buffalo (same reason as Winston), KC (Smith will probably rebound), Tennessee (he is struggling, but I think he gets a 3rd year), Minnesota.

          That leaves 8 teams potentially looking for starters next year: Arizona, San Fran, Chicago, Cleveland, Jacksonville, NYJ, Miami, Washington

          Figure 2 starters from the draft, plus: Cutler, Romo, Tannehill, Bortles, Cousins, Palmer, Gabbert, Hoyer (assuming he strings another game or two).

          • BerwynBomber

            JAX or SF will probably not be landing spots for either Cutty or Hoyer. Jax still has Bortles another year so it will be easy to rationalize 2017 with him before figuring out a next step (he’s only $5M per and 24 years old). And Kelly, I believe, is still using the run-option. Jay ran that a little with Gase. But it was very little and I can’t see a team investing in a +30 guy (Hoyer or Cutty) as a starter to do it full-time.

          • willbest

            Well my point is that you have 8 starting jobs and probably 10-11 applicants (maybe more if the underclass elects to enter the draft). That won’t necessarily drive the price down from 17-18 million, but you are looking at Bradford level guarantee rather than Oz.

          • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd BirdCagE = mc2(ButchDeadlift)

            And there might be a few more QBs who might hit the market.

            For instance, if the Broncos eventually go with Lynch over Siemian, then add Siemian to the list.

            The Rams can’t bench Goff forever, and if Keenum looks decent, add him to the list.

            Some old standybyes or ‘what ifs’ like Sanchize and Glennon will still be around.

            What if Bridgewater recovers fast and the Vikes are willing to trade him?

            I agree with Will. The market might be flush with QBs next season.

            Like I wrote in a previous thread, many NFL teams are trying to emulate the Donk’s blueprint of meh QB and elite everything else.

        • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd BirdCagE = mc2(ButchDeadlift)

          You think JAX is finally done with Bortles? Dude does look like dogshit. JAX might be the team we trade up for to land our new franchise QB if they decide to roll with Bortles.

          Tannenhill I think is done. He looks just like Diabetes Cutty. Eerie. Gase will dump him.
          Not sure about Tyrod Taylor though. I think it depends on if Rex is still there.

          NYJ, SF, CLE, yup. Hope they all end up with better records than us.
          ————–
          This is why I HATE 1yr contracts! Fuck, how is it that teams could be so stupid?

          We should sign practically EVERYONE to at least two years, cuz 1 yr contracts always suck no matter what.

          IF the player flames out, then you essentially waste time and resources coaching up a guy for another team when we could’ve used those time and resources on developmental kid.

          IF the player succeeds, then the team is inevitably left in the unenviable position of trying to determine if it was a fluke or not, of having to overpay. And without doubt, some other team is always more desperate, and will overpay for a one year wonder.

          With a second year, a team avoids all that. You got the guy for another year to see if it wasn’t a fluke, and more importantly, FOR CHEAP.

          Will Young was a perfect example of this If he was on a one year contract, he would’ve been long gone, most likely getting overpaid by someone else.

          • willbest

            Which 1 year contract are you complaining about? Hoyer’s? we didn’t coach him up Darth Hoody did.

            Personally, I don’t know why a player would commit to a longer contract than his guaranteed unless it was a Revis style contract where the second year was never going to get paid.

            —-

            I agree with JWood on Bortles, I think 3 years is enough time. Sure he is cheap but they have a ton of cap space, and a lot of talent at the skill position.

          • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd BirdCagE = mc2(ButchDeadlift)

            I’m complaining about ALL 1yr contracts.

            Makes sense from the player’s perspective. Makes NO sense from a team perspective, IMO.

            If given the choice between molding a draft pick, or wasting those resources on a 1yr guy who will likely be gone (or get overpaid), I’d go with the former.

            It’s like pimping out a rental car.

            The only time it makes sense to me is if a team is a SB contender with a closing window (a la Pats with Revis).

          • willbest

            Well there is a limit to how many people you can draft, and how many undrafted players you can develop into quality players. The other 31 teams are looking for those players too. Leaves a lot of holes to patch up for everybody.

          • BerwynBomber

            No, JAX is not done with Bortles. He has another year left on his rookie deal. So it will be easy to rationalize giving him another $5M before making a final determination. SF, I bet, is a non-starter too. Kelly, I believe, is still running up-tempo run-option there. Not the idea place for a +30 QB with some wear and tear on him.

          • http://www.dabearsbeat.com/ Johnathan Wood

            I believe (but not 100% confident) players within their rookie deal limits can only sign multi-year deals up to the end of their rookie limit (4 years from draft for drafted, 3 for UDFA).

            Many vets who are signing for small $$ amounts want 1 year, because they don’t want to be on the hook for multiple years at the minimum. If they play well enough to earn a bigger contract, they want that money. Which is perfectly fair. If a team wants a player locked in for more than 1 year, they need to pay for that privilege.

          • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd BirdCagE = mc2(ButchDeadlift)

            I know that’s what the players want, cuz they want to get PAID for fluke years. I would too!

            But I don’t understand why TEAMS do it.

            Like I said, if Young had been on a 1 year contract, then we likely grossly overpay for him on the re-sign.

            If a fringe player wants a THREE yr contract, that’s fine with me, as long as the last year has marginal cap penalties.

            For instance, if we had signed Hoyer to a 3yr contract, I would’ve been cool with that. What would he have gotten? Like $5-7M total?

            At worst he’s a great backup, and worth that.

            At best we have a starting QB for pennies, and can use that extra $10-15M in FA

            Now, if he shows he’s not a fluke, we’ll be paying at least $5-7M a year.

    Tonight’s game seems like it is a must win for Arizona. And its not at all obvious they will win. Don’t know if I will watch it though. Maybe turn it on after the kids go to bed and check the score. If it is competitive finish it, if not watch some Luke Cage before heading to bed.

    Better week for football though. Obviously feeling much better about the Bears for the noon game. I am hoping the late game is Pigeons vs. Donks. I want to see Matt Ryan who is having a career year take on one of the best D’s in the league. SNF figures to be a high scoring affair. MNF could be exactly what the cats need to right their season.

    • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd BirdCagE = mc2(ButchDeadlift)

      Verrrrry curious about unstoppable force (ryans) meeting immovable object (donk’s d)

      Crazy to think, Arizona has same record as us, and in some cases, has looked just as bad (esp Palmer).

      That’s why I think Cutty would be a good candidate for them. Their window is obviously next 2 years.

      That’ll be Cutty’s window too before he becomes Tony Romo brittle.

      Arians must be losing trust in Palmer. Hasn’t been the same since he inj his hand last year.

      Bears have a lot of injuries and they are roster juggling.

      They wanted Harvard on the roster for the game on Sunday (note they ran a lot of 2 TE sets). They had the RB on the roster over the game because they needed an RB3. Perhaps that is a sign that Carey or Langford will be RB2 or 3 this week so they brought the lineman back up.

  • BerwynBomber

    “DaBearsBlog @dabearsblog One thing about Bears schedule thus far. Houston, Dallas, Philly all seem just better. Colts, Jags not. Not hard to imagine this team 3-3”

    Not sure about that. PHI and DAL, better. HOU and Colts worse. Jags maybe/slightly better.

        Nah, I hope he keeps his voice forever. I prefer when idiots can say idiotic things, that way we can all tell who the idiots are.

        • Huge Bears Penis

          I think everyone already knows he is an idiot. so he can lose his voice.

        I think Trump’s is some kind of crazy weave.

          No its the worlds most impressive combover

        Trumpf demands terminally ill patients to live long enough to vote for him. Polls supporting euthanasia buoyed.

          lol

    Cutler didn’t practice. Neither did royal. Floyd also out. Miller was limited. That should make Cutler Doubtful for Sunday.

    Braverman is going to need to suit up!

    • Big Mike

      Jefe called it about Royal. Use him up before he heads to the IR. I wonder if that’s an actual strategy on Eddie Royal’s part. Excel for a few games at the beginning of every season and then take a seat.

    Wow… Barth… you might not be great at kicking field goals, but at least you will have something to do when we cut you.

      this his house?

      • Huge Bears Penis

        probably not but he should be living really close by in a tent or RV, so he can wake up and head out and start kicking field goals!

        • MB30SD

          that’s what I was thinking. If I was a kicker with a multi million dollar contract, and I lived in BFE, I would totally put a goalpost in my backyard. Kinda like all the fat rich fucks here in Rancho Santa Fe put putting greens in theirs.

          I guess I’ll put a bar in mine?

            The inverse proportion of wealth to fitness never ceases to amaze me, and it’s mainly the men… I guess they figure if their most recent hot piece of ass keeps fuckin the pool boy, there’s more chicks lined up around the corner to spend their money and give them the obligatory ‘bj for their shopping habits’ .., personally I’d be ultra-loaded and a fit beast so I could enjoy the hell out of hooking up with nothing but 10’s…ok and a couple nines for fun. All of it on my terms cuz I’m loaded and I’d be a physical fucking specimen. Boom

          • MB30SD

            That’s the plan baby!

        That is outside the Walter Payton Center, he took that photo this morning apparently.

    BMarsh tells the Giants to back the fuck off ODB or else

    • AlbertInTucson

      ODB=”Baby BMarsh.”?

      • Freddy G.P. Soft

        ODB just dropped the dreaded “football is not fun anymore” line.

        It’s your job, O’Dell. A job many compete for, few get. You are good at it, so you think you are special and the world can kiss your ass. O’Dell, go find the Toyota Corolla with the blacked out rear windows – the one Terrell Owens is living in the back of. Knock on the window. When he rolls it down, ask him this:

        “Should football always be fun?”

        See what he says.

          Beginning to assume all those clown sightings correlate to narcissistic ex-wide receivers mad at the world and looking for fun….

    “DaBearsBlog @dabearsblog
    One thing about Bears schedule thus far. Houston, Dallas, Philly all seem just better. Colts, Jags not. Not hard to imagine this team 3-3.”

    Maybe it’s not hard for a guy who imagined them at 3-1 at this point but for me and my fellow pragmatics it IS hard TO imagine this team at 3-3.

    First and foremost, stop looking any further than THIS week.

    Let’s see if they can

    A) Get to 2-3 and

    B) Let’s see who is still good to go next Monday.

    • Huge Bears Penis

      We are not players or coaches so by all means look ahead. 13-3!

      • AlbertInTucson

        SMH.

        • Huge Bears Penis

          shake your head all you want. There is always a chance for a miracle, remember 2001?

            With Da Destroyer, anything is possible!

    • BearDown100393

      13-3

      • AlbertInTucson

        SMH

        • BearDown100393

          Because my optimism directly impacts the team personnel and potentially lures those individuals into false sense of securities?

    • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd BirdCagE = mc2(ButchDeadlift)

      On to the Bengals!

    On an FF note, anyone who plays it, I STRONGLY recommend using the “Free agent auction continuous” method for waiver wire throughout the season. Should’ve done it from the start.

    It’s just much more fun than the losers getting first dibs.

    Part of the fun is having NO clue how the rest of the league values certain FAs.

    I’ve played against these dudes for a couple years now, and even I don’t know.

    For instance, GP put in a bid of $1 for Da Destroyer.
    While Sac outbid him for $10.

    Did Sac need him more for byes? Does the $10 signal he thinks Cutty will ride pine? Or did he think in a Bears-centric league Hoyer would cost or that vs that sieve-like Colt’s D, he’ll blow up and badly needs a win?

    Dunno.

    Anyways, I know a few of you guys play, so next time try to get in a league with that waiver wire format.

    Or, you can put on your big boy pants and join ours!

    Ruh-Ro

    SB Nation’s Thomas George reports Odell Beckham “could be
    suspended by the team for at least one game, maybe two” if he has
    “another meltdown” in Week 5.

    George passes the word along from “two different Giants coaches.” Consider us highly skeptical. “Meltdown” hardly describes Beckham’s Monday behavior, while teams aren’t in the business of
    suspending their best players for playing with too much emotion. It does, however, benefit the Giants to at least create the perception theycould ban Beckham. It sends a message loud and clear. Were Beckham to
    ever be benched or “suspended,” it would almost certainly be measured inquarters or drives, not games. – Roto
