  1. IDK, last I saw, the Colts O-Line was NOT good enough. It was an inconsistent patchwork that included a bunch of ifs, maybes & could bes. I, unlike some I guess, do not see a rosie, rock solid group, two tiers deep that fills me with confidence. I saw a lot of fumbling and bumbling by players with holes in their games. I'm all for adding a first tier RG, and keeping the development players in the back row until they're ACTUALLY ready. I too see big holes in the defense and understand the argument, it's a good argument, but I refuse to go as far as pretending the O-Line is OK, it's not.
  2. I'm thrilled with this signing. A metamorphosis is underway, and I'm loving it.
  3. I said all that during the season about Haeg. My speculation is he won't have the needed core strengths for another full year. Good has the power now, but his recognition and techniques were raw all season. I have no idea how long it should take him to refine those. Both of those guys should be very solid in 2018. 2017 is still iffy.
  4. Since it took time and effort on both sides to put together a meeting like this, and neither would waste the others time, they must be in the ballpark to go this far. The emoge tells me he received an offer worth pondering, rather than Just a truckload of cash and a pen.
  5. A few more uninformed, poorly writtwn offerings like this, and he'll be asking if you want fries with your order.
  6. Agreed!
  7. I really liked Frankie Williams at slot CB last year in preseason. He showed quick feet and quick recognition. I think that kid makes the 53 this year.
  8. I agree here. I'd also throw in that he played big minutes in preseason, then 16 games as a rookie. New to the NFL, new city, new to safety, longest stretch of games in his life. I think mental and physical fatigue played into his season. I'm inclined to withhold judgement for a year.
  9. 6'. 246. MLB for Arizona. 2nd rd pick in 2014 out of LSU Is that the guy?
  10. In the past two seasons at Ole Miss, the 6-foot-4, 303-pound offensive tackle started all 26 games, and in 2015, he was selected as the Kent Hull Trophy winner, awarded to Mississippi’s top offensive lineman. The Pro Football Weekly draft guide ranked Cooper as the 16th-best offensive tackle in draft. PFW’s draft expert Greg Gabriel, who spent 32 years as an NFL Scout and Director of College Scouting, praised Cooper’s work ethic and leadership. “A legitimate tough guy with good strength, but he lacks the athleticism and range to play tackle in the NFL,” Gabriel wrote in the draft magazine. “Most teams will start him out there because of his length, but I would bet that he will end up inside. His traits are more like a guard than a tackle.”
  11. Good stuff... Gaging the Chiefs and Jags defenses based on yards, one might think the Jags were a contender and the Chiefs were crud. Yards just don't matter at the bottom line, points do. The Chiefs are similar to the good Dungy Colts teams, who also gave up a bunch of midfield yardage but stiffened in the 'red zone' and forced field goals.
  12. The 19 point mark is a big deal! While defenses can be ranked by 'yards against', and other various measures, points against is the only one that truly matters. Historically you are not a 'good' defense unless you give up less than 20 ppg, thus 19 ppg matters. 17 is the marker for 'elite' defense, and 15 & under defines 'great' defenses. And, despite those various rankings, the team that won the Super Bowl this year gave up the least amount of points per game this season... 250 in 16 games, that's 15.6. Next closest was NY Giants 284-17.7, then Seattle 292-18.2, followed by the Broncos 297-18.5. Notice a pattern? You should, it's a list of modern Super Bowl Champs...
  13. I think Reitz, Harrison & Blythe are 2nd/3rd tier players that don't meet the position competition definition articulated by Chris Ballard.
