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

With a playoff berth on the line, the Colts came out with a purpose in the first half. Jonathan Taylor made easy work of the Jaguars defense, quickly working his way over 100 yards for the game and over 1000 yards in his rookie season. When Taylor added a touchdown in the first half he joined elite company as one of only three running backs to top 1000 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns in franchise history.

While the Colts defense had a really strong first half, the last Jacksonville Jaguars drive allowed Mike Glennon to go a perfect 7-of-7 and score a passing touchdown. Let’s hope this isn’t a sign of a far too typical Colts defensive collapse. If the defense can hold the Jaguars in the second half, the Colts should be in great shape to play their way into the playoffs. Absent a collapse by the Titans against the Texans, the Colts will finish with a wild card birth that will land them a date with the hot Buffalo Bills in the first round of the playoffs.

As strange as it might sound with the Colts dominating much of the first half, this game is very far from over. The Colts looked dominant against the Pittsburgh Steelers a week ago only to allow a second half collapse to put them in this situation to begin with. It will take a full game to get the Colts where they want to be and hopefully the front office will keep starts on the field until the final whistle to get the job done.
