    Tre Boston explains his Colts visit

    Two sides to every story, especially in negotiations. We heard Boston's side. I'm sure someone will bring it up to Reich, Ballard or someone else in some interview in the future. Maybe they'll share their side. Either way, it sounds like Boston clearly isn't getting the money he wants or expects. But an honest question, do players/agents always wait till DURING the meetings to discuss money and term? You would think that in today's world of communication, the basis of a deal that each side would want would already be somewhat known by both parties before hand, no?

    A Trade I Wish Ballard Would Make.

    So which of those guys aren't veterans? We could legitimately have 20 or more guys on the final 53 man roster, who will be playing in their 5th year or more. So how is that "barely have any veterans"?
  6. Pritchard mentioned after the draft that Aaron Holiday will work in the 3rd point guard spot this year and that we would keep Collison and Joseph. I think he takes over Joe Young's role this season (unless he dominates in summer league and/or training camp) and be the starter the following year when Collison and Joseph are both free agents.
  7. Maybe the staff didn't think anybody left in the draft pool would be an upgrade to the forward spot and believed Aaron Holiday was BPA. Both Kevin Pritchard and Nate McMillan said after the draft that they weren't done adding pieces to the team, so while Glenn may be back, I don't think it is a certainty.
  8. As I did say last night, he is big energy get dirty on the ground player. He was the star of our team and yet he was always the one getting rebounds by going hard to basket. With other players that can play well he can show better. He wont ever be a star or really even a starter but he is a player that a bench is made of. Hopefully in Summer League he will show it and can show to NBA that MVC is a strong conference that teaches players to still get dirty. His shot needs work still, has a weird push but can be fixed a bit with good coaching. Hopefully Nate and staff can show him an easier smoother shot and help his ability to make 3's. As was discussed last night he grew up as a guard until his height came. He still has there skills and insintics. One thing is when he was down low he would shoot and if it was a miss he almost always grabbed ball. Same when teammates missed he has good instinct on where the ball should go off a miss

    2 QB’s on the field wouldn’t signal pass. And if it did, even better to call the QB draw out of the wildcat (wild horse in the Colts case)

    I mean. They won the superbowl with a backup QB. And beat the team Russell Wilson, Matt Ryan, and Ben Roethlisberger couldn't. I think they deserve a bit of credit. Plus, it's Philly. What you expect? They riot when they win, they riot when they lose .

    I thought about Brissett, but I can't remember the last time I saw two QBs on the field for the same play. Plus the defense would have to know it's going to be a pass of some kind with both of them out there because it would be insane to make your top 2 QBs block for a run play... right? Unless Luck and Brissett create some sort of diversion on the side of the field near our sideline (like they're still talking to the coach and figuring out what the play is or something) while the direct-snap to Mack goes the other way when the defense is watching both QBs... then Mack hands the reverse to TY, who throws it backward to Brissett still waiting behind the LOS, who throws it to Luck who snuck up the sideline into the endzone in all the confusion after the snap... that's some trickeration right there. That would be pretty exciting if it worked. Kelly-to-Mack-to-TY-to-Brissett-to-Luck. The Indy Special. I like it. Luck might need acting lessons to pull it off, but I like it.

    Maybe he walked outside and something landed on his shoulder as an eagle flew overhead?

    Trade TY instead of wasting him during our rebuild.

    Manning may have needed every rep and 6 years to begin throwing like the GOAT, but these people are talking about a once in 25 year player. He is gonna come out throwing BBZ like the guy we always knew we drafted. Just you wait and see!

    We don't know the whole story. Just a couple snippets from one side.
  19. I found out how the 48 team format works, at least in its early discussions: https://www.theguardian.com/football/2017/jan/10/48-team-world-cup-fifa-plan-2026 They even mention Scotland in there for ya I like the way it is now, it reduces the number of weak teams getting in and preserves the quality. I do not want more teams like Saudi Arabia in the tournament, personally. It is obviously, a decision made around money.

    Luck's comment, that he thinks he's going to be better than he's ever been...... I could be wrong, but I think he's referring more long term than literally THIS YEAR. I think it's practically impossible for him to be at his best this year. From the time camp broke on 6/14 to the time of the first pre-season game with the Bengals about a week into August, Andrew Luck is only going to have about 30 days of throwing. And that includes the summer. And by the time of the first regular season game, that's about roughly 48-50 days fo throwing. That's it! And that's not very much. Not at all. Under those conditions, the idea that we're going to see the best Andrew Luck we've ever seen this year, seems not very likely. To be sure, the new offense, where Luck gets rid of the ball on shorter timing plays will help. And so will a much improved O-line and better running game. But there's a lot that's going to be new, and inexperienced. And all that takes time to really get up to speed. So, I think the "best Andrew Luck we've ever seen" is coming.... but it's more likely coming in 19 and 20 then it is in 18. I think that's pretty close to impossible. There just isn't enough time for all that to happen.
  21. actually, thats my point. We had our first chance Thursday night to 'upgrade the small forward spot' We did not feel the need to. Money is pbviously not an issue with signing Glenn. If we have to back up the truck to pay him it will be a very small truck. A tonka toy. Our management has always said they believe Glenn will be a very good player. .....not drafting a small forward suggests that we still believe that.

    Let's go September 9th! First year season ticket holder, I'm ready!
  23. Game 1: Harvey and the Reds got us last night, that Winker grand slam in the sixth hurt. Game 2: Cubs Were just up 3-1, now down 4-3, bottom 5th. Ugh.

    So......we have a player who sounds frustrated, posting out to the world about how they are wronged, and we jump to conclusions? Honestly, I cannot find one single thing that I like about twitter. One's life does not need to be monitored instantaneously by the rest of the world.

    I for one, am soooo sick of Philadelphia being some kind of “new” thing. Kudos for the Eagles beating the Pats but they had s bit of luck on their side when Rogers got hurt and when the Vikings beat the Saints. Living near Philadelphia is tough this year and they deserve a ring, a Lombardi and all the accolades that go with winning the SB. But can we pump the brakes on copying their “blueprint” ? They gave up 33 points in the SB and beat 2 playoff teams during the season. The Philadelphia Eagles are the most overrated team in the NFL.

    If this is true It's a poor reflection on the organization. Other FA's are going to think twice if they think they might be wasting their time.

    If they really did bring him in and he took the trouble to come over from wherever, AND didn't meet with him? If thats true thats totally classless.
