White Chester Rogers Jersey
Grading Andrew Luck’s First Game Back Luck’s Passing AttemptsLuck’s 1st Passing Attempt — Short Completion to Marlon Mack for 17 YardsFor those who missed his pass http://www.authenticsindianapoliscolts.c...ard-jersey , there it is! This is a designed play from the very beginning and it’s a good short pass that gives Luck some confidence and the offense some easy yards. Mack does a great job with the ball after the catch.This is a great play call from the coaching staff, giving him an easy completion to start the game that only helps his confidence. Luck’s 2nd Passing Attempt — Incomplete Pass (Short Right) to TY HiltonLuck does a good job selling the play action and you can tell by the way the defense (especially #91) reacts to it. He does a good job getting depth on the rollout, which buys him more time to make a read down the field. Unfortunately, Luck stares down his target, TY Hilton and tries to thread the needle into a window that wasn’t there. No harm no foul as the defender couldn’t make a play on the ball and the old adage is “only put the ball in a spot where the receiver can get it”.Luck’s 3rd Passing Attempt — 1st Down Completion to TY HiltonLuck takes a nice drop here and is patient with the throw, but he seriously needs to be careful with his eyes on the play. Luck is obviously rusty so his ability to manipulate defenders with eyes isn’t there yet. Nevertheless, he puts a lot of zip on this pass and places it very well. Luck’s 4th Passing Attempt — Incomplete Pass (Short Left) to TY HiltonIf you look at Luck’s footwork, he’s engaged in a “catch and shoot” type of pass. A catch and shoot pass means that Luck needs to get rid of the ball quickly and preferably on his first or second read. He needs to get rid of it quickly because he’s not taking a drop to get away from the offensive line. He does a much better job scanning the field, but makes the wrong read forcing the ball to a well covered Hilton towards the sideline. A better cornerback in better position could take a pass like that to the house. Luck’s 5th Passing Attempt — Short Completion to Chester Rogers for 10 YardsThis is a very good play from Luck. He takes the easy dump pass that goes for 10 yards. His mechanics aren’t perfect in a muddy pocket, but it’s such an easy throw that it doesn’t really matter. He took what he was given, which is always the smart play.Luck’s 6th Passing Attempt — Short 1st Down Completion to Robert Turbin for 14 YardsAny person can make this easy read — great play call from the coaching staff and a great job by Turbin. You can see a trend with the passes the coaching staff called in this game. Luck’s 7th Passing Attempt — Short Completion to Marlon Mack for 6 YardsAnother easy pass from Luck and a good call from the coaching staff on first down.Luck’s 8th Passing Attempt — Completion to Jack Doyle for 9 YardsFor those interested in the mechanics of a quarterback, Luck performs a very nice 7-step drop with a hitch. This is a long-developing pass play that involves multiple reads, so the 7-step drop is intended to give Luck time to make the read and get as far away from the offensive line as he can! He goes through a few reads here and makes the right one in Doyle. Easily his best throw of the game. Luck’s 9th Passing Attempt — Incomplete Pass (Short Right) to TY HiltonIf his last throw was his best, this was probably his worst. This was definitely a pre-determined read as he immediately looked to Hilton’s side. He definitely relied heavily on Hilton tonight. Doyle was wide open on the drag and probably would’ve gotten the first down. Luck needs to make sure he’s reading and scanning the field properly pre and post snap.Luck’s Only Rushing Attempt — 1 Yard GainNo thoughts on this, but I think every Colts fan held their breath for a few seconds!Luck’s Final Numbers — 6/9 White Joe Haeg Jersey , 64 Yards with 1 Rush for 1 YardLuck’s MechanicsUpper BodyHis throwing motion looks the same and he has the same amount of zip on his passes. His lead shoulder was a bit misaligned on his throws and it affected his accuracy a bit. His looked a bit stiff on a couple of throws early on, but I doubt that had anything to do with his shoulder injury. If we’re being picky, it definitely wasn’t perfect in terms of his upper body mechanics, but it was acceptable. Lower BodyFootwork looked fantastic! The 7-step drop was a thing of beauty and I found his lower body was properly aligned for the most part. His drops were crisp and I thought he moved well in the pocket.Overall GradeOverall, Luck had a nice game and the coaching staff called a great game (in general, but with Luck especially). They gave Luck a lot of easy passes that boosted his confidence and got him into a flow. They mixed in a few play action plays and some rollouts. He got a nice taste of NFL football! It feels like I’m talking about a rookie!He looked very calm and relaxed on the field. He was making his usual pre-snap reads, which some quarterbacks don’t even bother doing in preseason games (which is a big mistake) and he didn’t look like a guy returning from a 585 day absence. Overall, I’d give him a very good grade, but there’s some areas that need some refinement. I’d give him a B+.5 Redskins Players To Watch Against The Colts We are now just one day away from the Colts big matchup against the Redskins in D.C. The Redskins are a very good young team who absolutely dominated the Arizona Cardinals in all facets last week. If the Colts are going to have a chance to win this game, they must limit these five — actually six — players on the Redskins:Adrian Peterson/ Chris Thompson, RBs:Hard to choose between these two players as both were outstanding in the Redskins opening game against the Cardinals. Starting with Peterson, he looked to be his old self as the Redskins primary ball carrier. The offensive line was opening up holes for him but he was running fast and with a lot of power. He was rarely brought down after first contact as he finished the game with 28 touches for 166 total yards and a touchdown. Colts really have to contain Peterson if they hope to win this game. Shifting focus to Chris Thompson now, he’s the X-Factor in the Redskins offense. As the third down back/ COP back, Thompson is a weapon who is nearly impossible to cover one on one in space. His elite level quickness and route running is makes him among the best third down backs in the league. The Redskins really utilize him on third downs and in the red zone as their primary target so the Colts will have to make limiting his touches a priority. Last week Thompson had 5 catches for 63 yards and a touchdown along with 5 rushes for 65 yards.Jordan Reed, TE:Jordan Reed being back and healthy really changes this Redskins’ offense drastically. Reed is an elite talent at the position and is arguably one of the top receiving tight ends in all of football. He is almost impossible to cover one on one as he is too quick for linebackers and too big and physical for safeties. The former Pro Bowler had 4 catches for 48 yards and a touchdown last week against the Cardinals.The Colts have to make taking away Jordan Reed a priority this week. Last week White Chester Rogers Jersey , Bengals tight ends were targeted 5 times which resulted in 5 catches for 57 yards. That kind of efficiency can’t be allowed to Jordan Reed, who can create much more after the catch. I think the best plan of attack against Reed will be to devote rookie LB Skai Moore to cover hi primarily in passing situations with a safety rolling over top to help.Matt Ioannidis, DE:I could’ve easily gone with any number of players from this Redskins’ defensive line as each player across their front has game breaking potential. I went with Ioannidis though mainly because he has the most favorable matchup against Matt Slauson and just how dominant he has been since the start of last year. Often the forgotten man on the Redskins’ front, Ioannidis is a man amongst boys.Ioannidis is a talented, young defensive lineman whose strength is his standout trait. He has improved drastically since entering the league as he has developed an impressive bull rush along with working on his pass rush repertoire. Last week, Ioannidis only had 19 pass rushing snaps logged but had three hurries and one sack. The Colts are going to need veteran guard Matt Slauson to have a great game to limit the talented young defensive lineman.Ryan Kerrigan, OLB:What more can be said about Ryan Kerrigan? The potential Hall of Famer has been the model of consistency in his NFL career, as he has had 8.5+ sacks every year since 2012. Last season, he notched the second most of his NFL career with 13.0. Kerrigan is a bully on the edge as his strength is almost impossible for right tackles to handle. Even the best tackles in the NFL have trouble with Kerrigan.This has to be the biggest area of concern for the Colts his Sunday. Kerrigan absolutely feasts on inferior tackles. With Anthony Castonzo suffering a setback this week in practice, it appears that rookie second rounder Braden Smith will likely get the start at right tackle for the Colts. Smith struggled in the preseason playing right tackle as his better position on the line is likely at guard. Kerrigan will likely have his way with Smith this Sunday so hopefully the Colts use a running back to chip that side or go back to the quick passing game that worked well last week.Montae Nicholson, SAF:Montae Nicholson may be the NFL’s best kept secret. The second year player out of Michigan State was incredible when he played last for the Redskins as he filled that center fielder type safety role for the team. He is an outstanding athlete with an impressive athletic build (6’2” 215 pounds) who seeks out contact. This year, the Redskins looked to expand his role and he looked excellent in the first game. Playing more around the line of scrimmage, Nicholson wreaked havoc in the run game against David Johnson and the Cardinals. Luck and the Colts’ wide receivers are going to have to be aware of the rangy Nicholson. He has a rare ability of covering the entire backend and he will make wide receivers pay who don’t keep their heads on a swivel. I fully believe in Head Coach Frank Reich’s ability to muster up a game plan that keeps this in mind but Nicholson is a very good young player who will have an effect on this game.
