  1. I don't think we will be winning any Super Bowls until our defense is Super Bowl worthy. This year would be a success if it climbs up to average level. Then we go from there. Playoffs...are possible. possible. Super Bowl...need more time to invest in and grow the D to get past the New Englands & Pittsburghs of the AFC.
  2. My money is on Walker. That Northwestern defense was pretty stout and Walker was right in the middle of it all. I think someone in the linebacker core will eventually go down to injury and we will be happy that we picked this guy up. Colts later round running backs usually disappoint so I'm not expecting much from Mack. Colts hopefully pick up a better back higher in the draft next year.
  3. Let's hope. We need some more depth there.
  4. As it stands right now, any injury to Vontae or Hooker causing either to miss significant time would likely be big trouble for our defense regardless of the number of LB's Ballard adds to the unit.
  5. Chuck better win the Super Bowl. That's the only way I see him lasting past this season. Writing is all over the wall for him.
  6. That's a concern of mine as well but I don't think it's an excuse where Luck is concerned. I think he has the talent to cover up much of their inadequacies when he is on. The talent around him is better so I expect to see him cut down on his turnovers and maximize possessions. He should get more possessions next season to boot. I am more concerned about him not being 100% physically and that impacting his on field performance. If healthy, I want to see him reduce his interceptions to single digits and throw for at least 30 TDs. I don't think that is an unreasonable expectation for a QB of his talent, caliber and experience in the league.
  7. Definitely much better than average. But hasn't quite lived up to the "once in a generation talent" mantra yet either. He gets more talent around him now and less room for excuses. Looking forward to seeing what he does next season.
  8. Colts have a lot to prove. There is no disrespect being thrown their way in my opinion. We have been a mediocre team for the past couple of seasons.
  9. I think it's curtains for Pagano after this season. Ballard should have had the right to pick his own head coach anyway in my opinion. Having to switch coaches next year just slows down the rebuild process.
  10. It would be cool to have a Blue Devil on the Colts if he makes it.
  11. Agreed. And Hooker's presence will allow for the Colts to play Geathers in the box more often. Thus bolstering our front seven against the run. Hooker is there primarily to play the pass. If he has to come up and make lots of tackles on a regular basis something is going wrong with our front seven. lol
  12. As a team USF ran 41 times for 290 yards and 4 TD's in that game. Mack had 12 rushes for 42 yards and 1 TD. The Golden Bulls ran well enough with most of their yards coming from their QB and another back named D'Ernest Johnson 8 carries for 82 yards and 3 TD's.
  13. Fair enough...see my post right below yours as it's applicable to both. Thanks.
  14. LOL...true. But what I mean is he became a very east-west runner. FSU strung him out pretty good and it was harder for him to turn the corner. I fear he will experience much of the same when he faces NFL defenses. FSU game was a look at Mack against an elite college defense and he was somewhat exposed. He had some good early runs and even got in the end zone...early. But once FSU made adjustments they were able to put the wraps on him pretty much. There are some red flags on what Mack will actually be at the next level. Just my opinion. I'd love to be pleasantly surprised by Mack.
  15. Yes. He can actually tackle fine when he gets there. He is just taking really bad angles to the football in run support. If Colts can get him to improve on that without compromising his reactionary ball tracking instincts he'll be alright.
