  1. Yah I could spend god knows how long looking it up or ask colts fans about it and get an informed opinion and have an actual discussion. Thanks for the amazing info. I bet you feel much better being a rude smart * for no reason.
  2. I was curious with the lack of signings so far and the somewhat large amount of cap space we have if there is a rule on how much a team has to spend in order to maintain league parity? Also how long can a team allow their savings to roll over? For instance there has to be a rule where a team can save 10m under cap for 10 yr and all of a sudden use that 100m in one year right? While I'm here do you guys think that possibly Ballard knows luck isn't going to play or that something is wrong with him and that's why he isn't going full steam ahead on free agency? I like building through the draft but the two aren't mutually exclusive. You can do both. I just think there has to be some reason why he hasn't went all in on offensive line when it's a no brainer. Could he be wanting to see how the new system works and if luck can get rid of the ball quicker and thus make the line look a lot better than it has with the horrible play calling of the past? I'm just trying to figure out what's going on. There has to be a reason right?
  3. Could the lack of free agent acquisitions be related to Andrew lucks health? Is there any way that Ballard knows something we don't and has decided that we won't be competing next year and to stay put? I'm not saying this is what's happening I'm just asking could it be?? I just cannot for the life of me understand why he's being so stingy with the cap money. We have to get an o line or luck is going to get killed. It's like he thinks it's coming out of his own pocket. Oh well if he doesn't care about fielding a winning team why should we?
  4. Wow!!! This is absolutely maddening. How we didn't know that teams would do their due dilligance and scout our tendencies and basically be able to predict our offense in the 4th quarter better than mrs Cleo could have is beyond me and more than my simple human mind can comprehend. My main question is who gets the blame? I'm not sure how much pagano meddled in the offensive game plan but I guess even if it was chuds fault pags should of told him to knock it off and be less predictable. Running it 100% of the time in any formation is just inexcusable. My Daugther playing madden (she's 6) could call a better game and make it less predictable than that by randomly hitting buttons on the play selection screen and I'm not lying. Literally Chud pulling plays out of a hat would of been better and less predictable than this madness. Wow!!! Wow!!

    Bills looking at Rob Chudzinski, Mike McCoy

    Man it's crazy how things change on here. I can remember when we got rid of pep how excited everyone was to have a "creative and real offensive coordinator finally calling the plays". I even remember being excited after the Denver game thinking the colts had finally turned the page and would be a very well oiled machine for years to come. Let's just say that never happened. On a side note it seems mAny people want luck to be in a more west coast style system. Can anyone tell me what kind of system Peyton ran during his time in Indy? I remember it being super reliant on play action but I'm not too keen on the different offensive systems.
  6. I will be the first to admit that I am no expert on offensive line and blocking schemes and I rarely follow college football I'm just too busy. Anyways, in the beginning of the year all I heard was people on here saying we should draft mcglinchey and people were saying he was the best o line prospect in a long time. Now all I seem to hear is people saying we should draft Nelson. Who is the better player and what are their strengths? Is one player better at pass blocking or run blocking? Based on our needs, who do you see us drafting and if we decide to trade our pick,how far back could we go back and still get one of the two? Would there be any way we could get both? Thanks in advance!

    Is a 4-3 similar to a tampa 2?

    I have absolutely no idea about defensive schemes and I'm probably going to be laughed off the board here but I keep hearing people saying they wish we ran a 4-3. My question is , isn't that what we ran when dungy and then Caldwell were the coaches? The main reason I'm confused is people always said that freeney was good in a 4-3 and couldn't be good in a 3-4 and that's why we got rid of him so I always assumed we ran some type of 4-3 back then. Can someone tell me the main difference in laymans terms as to the differences in those two defenses. Like is one better at stopping the pass or getting to the qb and is one better at stopping the run? I just seem to remember the Tampa 2 being almost like prevent where our dbs played way back to keep the play in front of them. If that's true I def don't want anything close to that. I absolutely despise prevent defense and I think it's lost us a few games during the last few years but I digress.

    How many of our recent free agents will be back?

    What about John Simon? Wasn't he playing pretty well until he got injured? Is he on a one year deal too?

    Colts awards

    Ok since it's been a rough year and not too much good to talk about I figured this might be fun. If we had awards to give out who would get them and why? award 1. Offensive mvp awatd 2: Defensive mvp award 3: Over all MVP award 4: most improved colt. Award 5. Most disappointing colt. So yah let me know what your choices are for each category. I'm not going to lie it's kinda hard lol, it's like picking if you want to die by gunshot, knife wound, drowning or explosion, they all kinda suck lol. I can't really think of one guy on offense and defense that really sticks out. I mean I guess Hilton or doyle would be my MVP but both have cost us games or disappeared. On defense I can't really name a guy who just wreaks havoc consistently. I would prob have said hooker had he played all year long but that didn't happen. I can remember during the manning era it would of been so much easier. On offense it was Peyton no question, and defensively we had 2 or 3 guys each year thst really stood out from the rest like Mathis , freeney, and the BOB. Now it seems we just have a bunch of guys who are avg or below avg but no one that on every play you watch closely because you know he's going to do something important. Could this be why we are horrible, we lack the "team MVP standouts" that we had in the past?
  13. I'm not exactly sure who we signed to one year prove it deals but I think I remember quite a few guys we picked up were for only one year. With some of them playing decent how many of them will be wanting a big pay day next year and price themselves out of our range? I'm not exactly worried about the loss of talent per say I'm more worried about us having more holes we have to fill and won't be able to spend all our resources on our current needs which are o line, o line, o line, pass rush and a good coverage linebacker. Also I know it takes time for a defensive unit to gel and I don't want to see too many new faces that screw up our continuity. Who are our free agents for next year and who if anyone do you see us retaining and how much will it affect our salary cap situation?
  14. I know a lot of people get annoyed seeing the fire chuck threads after a loss but I think many posters myself included, use this forum as a form of therapy and a way to vent their anger. In the long run we are all helpless pedestrians who have no control over how the team does, I guess it just makes some people feel better to have a place to vent their frustrations. If this isn't the place I don't know of anywhere that is better.
  15. Yah you are totally correct. I asked a similar question and people were saying to ban me and stuff like that. I swear some people on here are so hostile to other colts fans I wonder if they actually support another team. We are all colts fans and it's been a horrible year to be a colts fan. It's not like there is exactly a lot to talk about so if you don't like someone's topic don't reply, it's really that simple.
