  1. I found one particular comment from Tolzien very interesting. He mentioned the QB 7 step drops he has working on but he also stated drop steps are different this year with the new Receivers Coach. This makes me wonder how much influence they have and whether that been holding us back some.
  2. Ok, so I attend training camp multiple days every year and I am extremely disappointed with the recent announcements. I love the opportunity to see the rookies, free agents and core team battle it out. I also enjoy interacting with the players and getting my fair share of autographs. I was even lucky enough to appear in a video last year which I shared regarding how important camp is to fans especially those that can't afford to go to games. I understand that it is a hassle to pack up and go to Anderson or Terre Haute so training here in Indy makes sense. I do believe they will also lose some of the team building that happens when rooming together. Why couldn't they just continue the format and allow open practices through the week at West 56th? By condensing down to 2 open practices one of which is Sunday and in environments that aren't condusive to player / fan interactions you actually take a step back to what the NFL is promoting. Fans aren't able to engage as much, the interactions will be less likely, and the crowds will be rediculious. I used to plan time off work to attend and now I don't know if I will even attend this year and my guess is others feel the same. You know all those fan updates you get on here related progress, kiss them goodbye. The only positive is maybe, maybe the players will concentrate better and work harder which might produce better results on the field but I doubt it. Colts and specifically Marketing/Fan engagement you need to find a much better compromise. Only positive is when I die, my autograph collection and memorabilia might be worth way more since opportunities will be significantly less.
  3. I hear they are bringing Jonotthan Harrison back to compete at long snapper
  4. Mack seems awefully small to me to be an NFL back. One hit might break him in half.
  5. A trade likely guarantees you get him free agency goes to highest bidder
  6. You do as a safety net until you find a better option.
  7. Lots of competition training camp should be fun
  8. I picked him as a 3rd in the mock I posted.
  9. Go back and look how many 45th rounders make it in NFL worth it. Make the contract risk proof with incentives.
  10. Jets still shopping I say negotiate a new deal send them a 4th.
  11. "Play Vince McMahon entrance music" Talent is there and IF he is on my board meaning I have a plan then BPA to me allows this to happen at 15. Otherwise, remove him from board and imo medium-low risk High reward. Also I would take this risk every time versus risk of moving up and taking McCaffery.
  12. So here's the way I see this as Ballard stated the board will be set come draft day. If he is on the board and the board is ranked by BPA regardless of risks and he falls to any of your picks including 1st and he is your highest ranked player at that point you take him. Talent is there and you have decided to take the flak since he is on your board. You shouldn't hesitate unless you get an awesome trade. You take him and move forward and absorb the heat a few months as Ballard stated.
  13. We don't have a healthy Luck yet. Remember when we were told Peyton Manning would be ready for the season and then he wasn't? Nothing easy about an NFL schedule especially with injuries.
