    Default Bills @ Colts First Preseason Game

    Few thoughts so far on the first half despite their awful premature nature

    1) From the first few snaps the OL seems better than last season. Sure wasn't the most difficult thing in the world after last season's display but still nice to see it for a change. Even Donald Brown blocked

    2)WC offense is here as expected. Lots of quick, short/screen passing and drastic change from last season. Not a strict WC type of offense though. Colts, as Pep said, would take their shots downfield too as exhibited by T Y's receiving TD after play action from Hasselbeck.

    Speaking of that TD, TY made a hell of a catch and pretty sure he'll keep improving. Very good talent.

    3)Not that we didn't know it but for once we have an adequate back up QB. It feels nice for a change.

    4) A lot of penalties on both ends that just cost us a TD.

    5) Many things will change over a period of time like offensive and defensive strategies, personnel etc. Over in Indy though, one thing remains the same and that's the sucking of Special Teams.

    Before I get criticized here, I know it's still preseason and the 1st half of the 1st game but hey we have to talk about something.

    I'm glad we have 3 capable QBs

    EJ Manuel is not that bad

    We went from 3 and out all the time to an INT for a change. We're so predictable on offense looking to pass on every down.

    At this point I would be more worried if the Colts won preseason games.

    Brutal to watch...even by preseason standards. I personally saw no evidence of our new and improved OL & DL, including depth on DL. It's very early of course. Oh, and Fleener needs to show some hands at some point.

    yeah, the sky's definitely not falling or anything, but I'm a little worried about Fleener

    Could live with the fumble (solid reception and nice run preceded) had he made the TD catch (that was a gimme). Looked good overall, but still needs to make some meaningful catches.

    I was less than impressed with the starting OL myself, especially the left side of the line (though Costanzo was going up against Mario Williams so he gets a little bit of a break). Running game looked better and T.Y. Hilton looks like he could be the Reggie Wayne to Reggie Wayne's Marvin Harrison.

    I couldn't sit through most of the second half of the game. How'd our 'Interesting Story' guys do? Adongo? McNary? Ijalana? Did they get in the game at all?

    Starters besides Castonzo, Satele, McGlynn, and Fleener played well, which is what matters. I like Kerwynn Williams a lot.

    Adongo hasn't even practiced yet, he has a pre-existing bicep injury. Ijalana got in really late, didn't really pay attention. Don't know if McNary played or not.

    McNary didn't play. Same with Boyett, Thornton, and Holmes. All 4 rookies I expect to make the team.

    Sorry but didn't the starting 5 of OL change after a while when almost the whole 1st team left the field? Apart from Castonzo's mistake that led to Mario Williams run wild and sack Luck, I didn't notice any major problems. That's why I mentioned.
    Now Harnish took over, didn't the OL change too? Was house of cards afterwards.

    Fumble reminded me of a taller Dallas Clark. Not catching the td pass in the end zone did not remind me of Dallas.

    Luck puts that mistake on himself.

    http://www.indystar.com/article/2013...nclick_check=1
    Luck was sacked once, and was quick to exonerate left tackle Anthony Castonzo. Bills defensive end Mario Williams enjoyed virtually a clear path to Luck when Castonzo was late to react to the snap count.
    “The sack was my fault,” Luck said, insisting it was a “cadence mishap.”
    “Castonzo’s pissed at me. He said, ‘Do you want to get hurt, Andrew?’ I told him I’d publicly take that one on me.”

    good on Luck being the good soldier, but if the line didn't know the snap count Satele has to take some blame too
