  1. I remember our Super Bowl year. Our defense was struggling. Some people only remember we added Booger McFarland and brought Rob Morris back which really bolstered our defense. However, before that, Dungy said he was going to get back to the basics and he emphasized tackling and reacting quicker. It worked. Tackling? I'm for it.
  2. I go back to when Tarik Glenn suddenly retired. Manning and company tried to talk him out of it to no avail. Polian tried that guy from Arkansas who failed and then spent a whole draft on linemen that fell through. Hasn't been the same since until now. Grigson made some good choices in his last draft.
  3. Yes, but he said Howard Mudd said that. That's different.
  4. Consecutive wins vs the Titans
  5. ...and he said that when we first hired him, that he would do the very thing he is doing now.
  6. Adldai was an SEC backup. Polian saw potential in him, plus he liked the fact there wasn't much wear and tear. Great guy, great blocker, but Rhodes hit the hole harder and faster while Adlai had that studder step that never worked.
  7. Hairston in the slot seems sounds like a sleeper pick to me.
  8. When fans think they need the best coach in order to win championships, I think of Bobby Knight at Texas Tech or Larry Brown wherever he plays or Don Shula and Jimmy Johnson for the Dolphins. All of those coaches won championships with talented teams but couldn't without talent. I say we Assemble the Avengers Front office and scout team and let's become the most talented team. Then let's see what happens.
  9. the new punter/kick off guy will be impactful either positively or negatively. Hopefully he doesn't have to punt much this year
  10. It was said this draft was so deep for the RBs, that teams could get 1st - 2nd round talent in Later rounds and we took advantage of that.
  11. Frank Gore, Ken Griffey and. Lincoln Kennedy.....I know Ballard is using anslytics, but I didn't know DNA was Factored in.
  12. I think Banner has the potential to be really good and it isn't strength, conditioning and diet I worry about. I worry that he has the big mans lazy gene. If so, he will never make it. I heard a basketball scout say a lot of big guys really don't love basketball but they have the body and the opportunity and it pays well.
  13. If you are a great college back and there is no hole between the tackles, You break outside. Pros do that too...I agree it's overblown....now, picking up blitzes and blocking? They all have a tough time learning that.
  14. Thanks, Mr. Irsay. Now......Avengers assemble!!!
  15. Yeah, I picked up on that as well, but I don't know the answer.
  16. Especially since players are always using military phrases like "going to battle"....."He is our field general out there"....leadership....just tons of that jargon. This is one crazy good offseason.
  17. Surely, there is something redeemable about the player.
  18. My pet peeve is calling someone garbage....nobody needs to be called garbage. It's more indicative of your personality than it is the players value.
  19. So Deckers process will also weed out players who don't really love football, but they do it to make big money for their family. Lots of people in real life fall in this category. Just curious about the psychology of his models.
  20. Decker and Ballard seem similar in their approach. It might be a good fit. That was a really interesting article.
  21. The Colts do get the combine ever year, hosted a Super Bowl and Is being considered for the draft. Marquee events. We are right in the mix organization wise. We just have to get that great defense Ballard is building and we will be right back at the top again. I just know he is going to build A top 5 defense....I am getting pumped up just thinking about it.
  22. I guess that means the Jags, Titans and Texans are drafting 27th, 28th and 29th.
  23. Sorry, I wasn't taking a shot at you. Just having fun with the whole thing. I really think he'll have a good shot at it honestly though.
  24. I am so thankful Hooker won DROY. For a few days there, I was worried, but imagination and expectations came through in the end.
  25. Haha, I wrote that wrong. He does have smarts and skills. Look, every Colts fan is pulling for Haeg...we just want him to succeed.
