NEW COMMENTING SYSTEM TIPS

For those of you who preferred the old commenting system, we have some tips that should help make the game day thread more enjoyable or more familiar.

  1. If you change the ‘Sort By’ option to “Oldest,” you can read all the comments in chronological order, and the comment box moves to the bottom. If you leave it as “Newest”, the latest comments will appear at the top.
  2. If you’re using a computer, you can move down the comments using C, and move back up using shift-C by clicking once somewhere inside the comments area. This can also be used to ‘Load More’ comments.
  3. Under the ‘My Profile’ tab, you can keep track of replies to your comments.
  4. If you want to auto-show all images/GIFs/Tweets, you can opt into this under My Profile— Preferences

We hope this helps as Vox Media continues to work with Coral to recreate the commenting and community experience we had before the change. We appreciate all of your feedback and your continued support through this transition.


FIRST HALF THOUGHTS

While the Indianapolis Colts have done enough to lead at the half, the defense will again need to tighten up to get the job done. 14 first-half points aren’t horrible but the way those points occurred is a problem. Two long passing plays with miscommunications in coverage between the safeties and linebackers are starting to become a repeat issue.

Offensively, Jonathan Taylor got going early in the game only to come out for a drive and then watch the Colts start passing the ball. While getting T.Y. Hilton going bodes well not just for the game but also for the Colts’ playoff hopes, it is arguably as important for the running game to establish an identity.

Taylor has started to show signs of putting it all together in the last few games and has shown incredible strength after contact. Can Eberflus figure out the defensive issues and put together another dominant second-half defensive performance? Will the offense establish balance and put together sustained drives? Can the Colts find some kind of pass rush in the second half?
