  1. I like Jimmy Raye and wish him well. He might have a good shot at the Buffalo Bills GM opening.
  2. I agree. I started to have these thoughts at the deadline. I don't think this team is close to being able to complete with the best teams in the league over a 7 game series. I don't see what moves can be made this summer that will get them there. I don't believe for a second that PG stays unless this is one of the top teams in the league. I don't see that happening soon. It's better to get what you can and rebuild it the right way, imo.
  3. This is typical to have some football operations change right after the draft when you bring in a new GM. I haven't seen who else was let go besides T.J. McCreight.
  4. I'm going to go with Basham. I think we can be more confident that Hooker and Wilson will have more of an impact early on but hopefully Basham can turn into the pass rusher this team needs over time. I think of Basham like I did La'Raven Clark last year. You are not as sure what he is going to turn into on the NFL level but if he plays up to his potential it can turn the draft class from good to great.
  5. Does anyone think that this pick indicates that Ballard wants this team to be primarily a man blocking scheme over time?
  6. I agree. I thought for sure that the Titans were going to take Jamal Adams at 5. I'm glad they didn't.
  7. Hard to complain about this draft for the Colts. Sure some guys will not pan out but it's hard to argue with these picks. Luckily for the Colts this was a good draft in some areas of need. They could sit back and truly (what seemed like) take who they thought was the best player available while still filling a need. It's interesting to get a better sense of Ballard's philosophy for the roster. He clearly wanted guys with traits that stand out. Banner is boom or bust imo. A guy like Hairston has desired size but there were more polished (but smaller) cornerbacks the Colts could have taken today. I'm not mad about this. Thankfully Anthony Walker Jr appears to be an ILB who can play all three downs. Pagano seems to really like the big thumpers (like D'Qwell Jackson and Antonio Morrison) but this team needs guys who can hold up on third down. It looks like Walker has the potential to.
  8. I don't get NFL Network so I didn't actually hear what Mayock said but did read the text. I can't say I disagree. I have come to dislike day three of the draft. Between the gimmicky announcing of picks (whether it be at the zoo or spaceship) to the announcers being three picks behind it just is not good tv.
  9. I like this pick. There appeared to be a few CBs with some size who are projects but have some upside. Hairston was one of them. I'm fine with the Colts taking a project at this point in the draft.
  10. Agreed. He doesn't need to come in be the feature back for the future. His speed adds another dimension that this offense needs. Hopefully he can give the Colts what they hoped Ferguson would last season.
  11. I never thought there would be this many receivers and tight ends draft at this point but i'm totally fine as it drops guys like Wilson. I wasn't going to be upset if the Colts went offense in either of the first two rounds but it's good to see two defensive players taken. Hopefully Wilson can contribute right away. If he can it should be a big help to Vontae.
  12. Larry Bird appears to be stepping down. I'm happy about that if it is true but i'm not excited about Pritchard staying on.
  13. Before the draft I was hoping the Colts would take someone like Ryan Kelly. By that I do not mean a needs pick (I did not care too much what position the Colts took) but someone you are comfident can step in and contribute. I do find Hooker's inexperience concerning but it might be an overblown concern. With that said there is no denying Hooker's talent. Hopefully the coaching staff uses him correctly.
  14. I feel like there were better options. Hooker is inexperienced and the negatives that go along with that. I find the pick underwhelming but hope it works out well.
  15. It would have been nice to see the Pacers win a game or two but I never felt they had a shot to win a 7 game series vs the Cavs. (unlike last year vs the Raptors) It was a very disappointing season, imo. It always sucks when the season ends but some seasons, like the 2011-2012 season, gave you hope for the future. I don't have that hope for this current roster. My fear is next season will be much like this season and PG leaves.
