Preseason Colts Trade w/ Jason Shidler

August 27, 2012 at 7:48 pm

Colts GM Ryan Grigson made a preseason trade to acquire CB Vontae Davis from the Miami Dolphins. Colts gave up next year’s 2nd round pick, but are excited about their new starting CB. Listen to hear how this impacts Colts.

ADSD talk Colts injuries and trade. Drew couldn’t join us, but Austin is joined by Jason Shidler. Why did the Colts make this trade? What state are the Colts in? Listen to hear more

Why Did the Colts Make the Trade?

August 27, 2012 at 7:30 pm

The newest Colt has had a solid career. Vontae Davis was traded from the Miami Dolphis in exchange for Colts 2013 2nd rounder + 2013 late round pick.

Every game in the 2012 Preseason has seemed to add another name to the Injured Reserve List. Officially, as of Monday at 5:30 EST, August 27th, Colts have placed OT George Foster, DT Brandon McKinney, and WR Griff Whalen on the IR, ending their seasons. OG Justin Anderson is on the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) List. The NFL mandates all teams to get their teams down to 75 players.

2 Things To Look For in Bears vs. Giants

August 23, 2012 at 1:34 pm

Tuck sacks Cutler in 2010. Tonight the offensive line will be highlighted as they go up against one of the best pass rushes in NFL.

Friday night the Bears will make their first away game of the 2012 preseason. All Bear fans are looking for reassurance at safety and the offensive line. Keep reading to find out what else you should be looking for.

This is the game of preseason that the starters will play into the 3rd quarter. Football fans enjoy this preseason game the most. Why? Because in the fourth preseason game it is very unlikely that you will see any starters for any extended amount of time. So in this game, all Bear fans are looking to see how Alshon Jeffery fits in with the starters. Will Evan Rodriguez get touches at tight end? Will that offensive line be able to stop the crazy, intense pass attack of the defending champion, NY Giants defensive line? How will the safeties gain stability? How will the defensive line shape out and who is going to make the 53-man roster?

Top 3 Injuries for Chicago Bears

August 22, 2012 at 12:12 pm

We are at the halfway point in the preseason period. Bears are 1-1 so far, but here are the injuries that are bothering the Bears.

Brandon Hardin went down after this hit on Redskins tight end.

#1 One of the most critical positions for the Bears is at safety. The Bears haven’t been able to find consistency at this position since Mike Brown. The Bears have used a draft pick on this position 4 of the last 5 years. Steltz was a 4th rounder in 2008, Major Wright 3rd round in 2010, Chris Conte 3rd round in 2011, and Brandon Hardin 3rd round in 2012. As you can see the Bears have used the 3rd round to pick a new safety the last 3 years. The two starters are Major Wright and Chris Conte. However, Conte suffered a dislocated shoulder injury last Saturday vs. the Redskins. The injury happened when Chris made a tackle on a running back. “I just hit him,” Conte said. “The shoulder came out of place, and we got it back in there and it was fine after that. It looks like I’ll be all right so it’s not a huge deal. I’ll be all right.” Craig Steltz will start for the remaining two preseason games. The plan is for Conte to be ready for the season opener vs. the Colts.

In Case You Missed it today…Top 2 NFL QB Headlines

August 21, 2012 at 9:02 pm

We are talking QB’s today. QB Tuesday August 21, 2012 headlines

#1 Vick is out, but is expected to be ready for week 1 vs. Browns. Fantasy owners and Philadelphia fans should be frustrated with yet another injury to fight through. Vick has injured the ribs-area twice now in the since last season. He got hit more than any other QB because of a weak offensive line. Vick is going into his second camp as the starter for Philadelphia Eagles. Vick, so supremely gifted, tries to make the big play….but puts himself at harm’s risk. My vote for backup QB in Philly is Mike Kafka from Northwestern (BIG10). I know one team in my keeper fantasy league (keep everybody) who is very concerned about the latest injury to Mike Vick.

Andrew Luck- “The Chosen One?”

August 20, 2012 at 3:27 pm

Luck continued his preseason success in game #2 vs. Steelers on Sunday night.

Is it to early to anoint him?  Hmmm… well maybe not the “Chosen One”. Lebron’s got that title pretty much on lock.  Tell me this though, has there been anyone in all of sports that the media has put higher expectations on from day one? And has any athlete put up the performance on the field/court to back up those expectations since King James? What about the highly touted Andrew Luck?

Top 3 Things We Learned From Bears Preseason Game #1

August 10, 2012 at 9:30 am

McLellin provided a positive for the Bears in Game #1, recording 3 tackes and 1 sack. Defense showed us more than the STAR-less night on offense. No Cutler or Forte.

As the game started in the great Soldier Field last night, storms were pushing through Chicago. The storm didn’t affect the game, but it did make Bears coaches think twice about playing Cutler, Forte, and Julius Peppers. So we didn’t see any of those 3.

It wasn’t pretty, but that’s not what the preseason is for. There were some bright spots, but there were also some negatives. I found a website vipbox.tv to watch the game last night. Even though the stars didn’t play for the Bears last night, there was a lot to see and learn. NFL Network replayed the game at midnight. Okay, let’s get into what we learned from last night’s game.

#1 OFFENSIVE LINE STRUGGLES. So what we didn’t see Cutler or Forte on offense? The offensive line proved again that it isn’t opening up any running holes or giving the QB the proper timing to run an efficient offense. Bears are giving this young, unproven group a looong look. Jamarcus Webb was playing well into the second half. They are making him earn that tackle position. The entire starting line was still starting into the 3rd quarter. Chris Williams, the #1 backup at tackle, also didn’t impress. Sadly, it seems the Bears are stuck with who they have. This group has a chance to gain a lot of experience, but that doesn’t always equal success. Don’t expect Bears to make any moves at this point.

How bad was the Bears offense? They gained a total of 132 yards. 36 rushing and 96 passing. Bears line gave up 6 total sacks. Offense was 0-11 on 3rd downs. I guess we expected the Bears to struggle without Cutler and Forte, but you want to see the starting line and key backups at the running back
