Josh Jacobs loses H-O-R-S-E to Frank Reich

Alabama running back Josh Jacobs visited the Eagles, Ravens and Colts.

He seemed to enjoy his trip to Indianapolis most.

“The Colts’ [visit] was definitely fun because I played basketball with [Frank Reich] and [Nick Sirianni],” Jacobs said on Ian Rapoport’s podcast, via the Indianapolis Star.

The Colts’ head coach and offensive coordinator held their own against Jacobs.

“This is the crazy thing, both of them beat me in a game of H-O-R-S-E, but I beat both of them in a 3-point contest,” Jacobs said. “I was missing all the simple buckets they were making. They were playing old-man basketball.”

Accustomed to sharing a backfield, Jacobs would seem to fit the Colts, who have starter Marlon Mack and backups Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins. Jacobs finished third on his team in carries last season, with 120 carries for 640 yards and 11 touchdowns.

  1. Now that’s clever. So when Shaquille O’Neil couldn’t make simple free-throws from 15 feet with nobody guarding him, he should have just said it was only because he just wasn’t any good at “playing old-man basketball.” Like Josh Jacobs just did.

  2. A new approach to finding out if a prospect is competitive or not instead of asking him if he would rather be a cat or dog. Seems like the Colts have finally found the Reich head coach. See what I did there.

  3. I figured Colts would be good at some other game, but they really ought to practice football.

  4. I was missing all the simple buckets they were making. They were playing old-man basketball.”


    So anything other than a dunk or 3-pointer is now considered “old man basketball”?

  5. I don’t understand the need for a RB in Indy. Mack looks like a top 10 back and Hines is a change of pace.

  6. They should have played a game of w.i.d.e.r.e.c.e.i.v.e.r. Or even a game of d.e.f.e.n.s.e. if they wanted to help forecast their early round draft selections.

  7. Good thing he didn’t blow out a knee. I’ll bet he has a no basketball clause in his contract.
