    OURLADS projected colts depth chart

    Looks to me as if these cowboys put the position groups into a hat and drew names. I've almost never seen any projection published to be this bad, especially on defense. It is encouraging to see the people posting here have more sense. I bet this was the depth chart used to pick the Colts' preseason power rankings.

    OTAs 5/24

    I also read that Ebron and Hines were being deployed all over the place and may well be a problem from opposing defenses. They're both getting reps.

    OTAs 5/24

    Yes, I noticed that one. The body control and balance probably saved an injury. Love that part. Nelson is plainly not just a fat guy. They all talk about his flexibility which is rare among big men. And by the way, he looks to be a full grown man to me. That left side might really be a load.

    Keeping Brissett at #2

    I suspect that the Colts would still be a very competitive team with Jacoby at the helm. We have all seen the progress that young starters make in their 2nd season. I see no reason to believe Brissett wouldn't follow the pattern, especially since he's getting all the #1 reps in OTAs. Plus he's got a lot more help this year. Still, I confess I'm hoping for Luck's return. He's a special guy.

    True or False: Week 1 Edition

    I said no to the poll, but only because he is a rookie and I think the route trees that will be installed will be a bit much for him. I loved the draft pick but really believe he'll need a year or so to fill the 2 spot. If he is the number 2 then we have found a diamond in the rough.

    CB Bashaud Breeland likely to sign with Colts

    The only thing not left to conjecture about the man's value is the fact that the 7 pages on this topic indicates at least a concern about the corner position. It is Ballard's job to figure out that value and make an offer or not.

    Daily dose of optimism for Andrew Luck's return

    This week's interview with coach Reich Is interesting in that he is talking about letting Andrew help fine tune the plays and check downs which would indicate to me that our big strong quarterback will be under center sometime soon. When? I'll get you the exact date in about 2 weeks. GO COLTS!
  8. If Casserly is convinced, then who am I to doubt it. Plus, every action the Colts have taken this year indicate their belief in Luck's return.

    Your Surpise Starter(s) for 2018

    I like your reasoning here. I do think the big competition will be at pass rush DE. Both DE spots could yield a rookie starter, but I imagine Mr. Sheard would be the biggest obstacle to that. I also think middle linebacker could yield a surprise but I frankly can't name anyone in this process. Linebackers seem to pop up with their enthusiasm levels. One more could well be a running back depending on Mack's health.

    Tre Boston & Kenny Vaccaro visiting Colts today

    The one thing I'd like to see is someone in the secondary standing up and taking a leadership role. If either of these two can do that, I'd be jumping up and down for them. If Vaccaro can play some slot, that would help in nickel against big tight ends. The pickups would definite breed additional competition which can't hurt.

    Daily dose of optimism for Andrew Luck's return

    I do believe that if healthy Andrew will require league minimums learning the playbook. I bet he was the first to get it. He does look as though he is back to that linebacker mindset. This time, however, he knows he can be hurt and will not look to run much. Good luck stopping him entirely, because when he sees it, he's going to take it. As we used to say in the military as a show of respect: "You want to fight him?"

    Daily dose of optimism for Andrew Luck's return

    Lol. How 'bout a 2 QB set for screens and such.
  13. bleevit

    Simple question. How do you not take Courtland Sutton?

    It fixes the guy running uncovered by forcing the QB to throw sooner than he wants or even better flattening him. A good pass rush ALWAYS makes the DBs better. Add to that some hard hitting fast safeties and your need for a CB diminishes.

    Roster update - Improvement ?

    I think 16-0 and 5-11 share one thing....a lack of realism. Even if Andrew doesn't make it back, Jacoby will have a camp and a year of hard experience. I think that alone would be 2 games better. The negativity belies several factors that will lead the Colts not to dump 6 second half leads like last year. Like everything else in May there is much speculation.

    Supes 2018 draft analysis

    From my ancient perspective, I will say that I just cannot imagine enjoying 2 consecutive drafts, hiring a top flight offensive mind, and returning Andrew Luck that I won't thoroughly enjoy this season. I think they will surprise a lot of genius sportswriters.
