  1. People might think Bill O'Brien is the best coach in the AFCS because he had no QB, however, When Luck went down and missed 9 games, Pagano still found a way to win with Hasselback, and the rest of the QB army needed in 2015, and did it without a defense ranked as high as Houston's. Pagano gets a bad rap here, but he is not as bad as some would believe.
  2. Ask yourself: What point is Flash trying to make? Is he just belittling the Colts staff, or is he pointing out that over the past couple of years they have provided unreliable information? If I am merely belittling the Colts staff, then I am a jerk, and no need to pay any attention to me. (Maybe the case). If I am simply providing data that points to the fact that the Colts staff has said one thing and the results have shown another, then I am not a jerk. I am simply stating that we will have to take a "wait and see" approach while disregarding what the Staff and FO say. Because we all have acknowledged that there are games played in the NFL and the Colts are no different. So, if the Staff and FO say Luck is on schedule, he may not be. Just keep that in mind. However, if you see Luck start to practice and he's throwing the ball, then there is reason for optimism. We haven't seen that yet.
  3. It's not the injury reports that I care about. It's telling the public that Luck was fine, only to miss games in 2015. Then after the Denver game, telling the public that Luck would be back after a few weeks, only to miss the remainder of the season. Then in 2016, stating that Luck was back to normal, however, Luck was dealing with immense pain and taking injections. Of course they do not have to disclose Luck's shoulder pain to the public, but my point is: Do not listen to the Colts staff. We will have to wait and see how Luck is once he's on the field. Disregard anything you hear from the coaches or the front office.
  4. Here is a timeline of Luck's injury and how the Colts were not forthcoming with accurate information related to Luck. http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/everything-the-colts-said-about-lucks-injury-for-two-years-raises-red-flags/ After reading the article, you should understand one thing: What the Colts tell you about any players injuries are not reliable. We will not know anything about Luck's status until we see him on the field.
  5. It seems like EVERYBODY understands this, except the Colts coaching staff -- which is so frustrating. The most important thing is to protect Luck, right? Coaches response: Let's have him take 7-step drops on long developing plays on nearly every snap.
  6. I actually do not expect a big year for Andrew this year. He hasn't thrown a ball for months and will not throw until basically week 1 -- if he's even ready by then. He will struggle to adjust to the lack of velocity on his throws and will struggle with finding the right touch on his deep ball for the first half of the year. It only makes sense to temper my enthusiasm, knowing that he has been rehabbing from a shoulder injury/surgery this off-season.
  7. I'm thinking this was Pagano and Grigson: "Banner recently pitched Decker to a head coach. He could tell the coach was sold, but he said the GM would never welcome another voice in the draft room. "It's going to take a team with a fresh approach," Lombardi says. "It's a challenge for Brian." CB is the new GM with a new approach.
  8. Hey, Doug. I haven't read through the entire thread, but have noticed that you prefer Humphrey over Hooker. Out of curiosity, Who do you think is the better player? I am aware that they play different positions and it's hard to compare equally, but if you had to choose between the two as who would be the better player, who do you choose?
  9. I think the Jaguars will select Lamp to shore up their O-line and to block for their new RB, Fournet.
  10. Not to single you out, but you have brought up this point: Just 1 year of experience. The lack of experience is a concern, however, think of it this way -- He played 1 year and showed that he was one of the best defensive players in the country. If he had more experience, we wouldn't have had a shot at drafting him. He is going to get better...much better. We go a steal.

  12. If you need 4 hard fought yards, Gore will get it. If you need 10 yards, Gore will get you 4 hard fought yards... Gore is fantastic, but he's not a break-away threat. It would be nice to have that in a young RB.
  13. 1. Tom Brady 2. Aaron Rodgers 3. Russell Wilson 4. Matt Ryan 5. Andrew Luck
  14. Thanks for the info, much appreciated. I stand corrected.
  15. It depends on the players mindset: Do I take the guaranteed money since the average NFL career is very short, and only the top players earn large contracts, or do I believe in myself enough to play for a team with the best opportunity to start. If I start, I can showcase my talents and earn a big contract. The decision would come down to Cleveland or Indy.
