Default ***THE OFFICIAL COLTS seahawks GAME THREAD****

Finally! What are you watching for tonight?

Me: Luck of course. The oline. The RBs LBS CBs pass rush I guess everything. Including coaching (not that it matters of course)

I want to see Nelson beat someone down!

unfortunately with such a late start I'm gonna have to watch the replay tomorrow while I'm at work.

A few things I will be watching for:

Offense

QB's
Andrew Luck - how does he look at game speed, can he make better decisions at throwing it away/sliding rather than taking huge unnecessary hits

Brissett - has he gotten any better at getting the ball out quicker, will the new OL help buy him more time

OL
Really interested in Nelson, but also I want to the other new guys up front, as long as Castonzo is back for the season, I'm fine with the backups/new guys getting more pre-season reps

WR's
Wanna see what all the hype about Cain is all about

RB's
How does Mack look without shoulder issues, can the rookies live up to the hype....can we shitcan Ferguson already?

Defense

DL
Will practicing against our upgraded O-Line make our D-Line better prepared?
Simon/Sheard/Woods - how do they fit in the new scheme, are the rookies getting overhyped?

LB
I have zero confidence in this group, but I'm excited to find out if Leonard can live up to his potential, we desperately need him to be good early on

CB
How bad are they going to get raped, wtf is going on with Wilson? thought we'd hear more about him with Chuckles being gone.

Safetys
Love Farley, but can't wait til he's not our best safety on the field. Is Geathers playing tonight? I think they said Hooker isn't.

Special Teams
We know what we have in the kicking/punting game, but I can't wait to see us actually have a decent return man, maybe we can block/cover this year

Stupid late start sucks balls. Iíll have to watch it tomorrow.

The main thing for me is no injuries.

Rookies Iím interested in seeing-Nelson, of course, Leonard, Cain, Skai Moore, and Turay.

Will be interesting to see how rusty Luck is. Sounds like heís going to play a quarter.

DL:

Is Denico Autry a starting caliber 3T? Or do they play him outside like Raheem Brock and only kick him inside on passing downs? If that's the case, who is the run down DT alongside Woods? Will Woods stay in or sub out on pass downs?

Sheard is a starter. Who will win the other starting job? As I said above, could be Autry. Could be Simon. Is it really going to be the rookie Turay like the depth chart said? Hard to believe that.

I liked Hunt last year as an interior DL. If they try him at DE he will probably not make the team.

OL:

There's almost too much to try to pay attention to on offense. Nelson and the other new OL like Slauson, Smith, Howard. But also, how will the returning guys do in the new offense? What is the new offense? What formations do we run out of now? How will it be disguised? What RB is preferred on what type of play? Will they all do everything? How much will Doyle and Ebron be on the field together? Will Ebron ever get in while Doyle's on the bench or is Doyle still TE1 is all aspects? How is Rodgers doing? Can he be WR2? Does Ryan Grant suck as much as I think he does? Can Cain live up to his potential with Luck throwing the ball? Also, insert 2 dozen Luck questions.

It's just one preseason game so we probably won't see enough to answer half of these.

I'm sure it has to do with it being Thursday, on the Left Coast, and it's 3 hours behind Indiana and Eastern time.

I will be paying close attention to both lines initially.

I'll sleep through it. No reason for 10PM games. None!

Hoping for a good showing from Luck with no injury, anxious to see how he takes a hit. Also, looking forward to seeing the rookies play.
