  1. Draft pick 2018?

    I too think he would fetch a 1st rounder from someone. The question is if Ballard wants to trade a quality backup before Luck is back fully healthy with a quality OL protecting him first. My guess is no.
  2. Jacoby Brissett and His Future

    With the uncertainty surrounding Luck, he needs to be kept at least for 2018. By then if Luck has shown to fully come back with the same arm strength and ability he had before his injury, then you can see what the market would look like for Brissett in the 2019 offseason. If a team is willing to give up at least a mid to high 1st round pick, you contemplate the offer. It's all about judging how you think Brissett will progress. If you think he has maxed out as a player, you trade him while his value is as high as it will be. If you think he will continue to progress, you keep him since his value will only go up. But right now he is needed on this roster until Luck comes back fully healthy and Indy has a quality OL to keep him that way.
  3. Keep the pick or trade down?

    I'm always a fan of adding more draft picks if you believe one of the players targeting will still be available after the trade down. This team has many needs, so having more picks to address those needs would be best for this franchise. Something like what Tennessee did when they traded down, and maneuvered the draft to get their guy in OT Jack Conklin the year they had the #1 overall pick. That's what Ballard will hopefully look to do.
  4. 2017 Season Predictions

    Now I'm 6/6. Let's see how long I can keep this going!
  5. Time to look to next season

    That would put us in line for a top 5 draft pick to dangle for a QB needy team. Could immensely improve the talent of this team for the future if they could get a haul of draft picks via a trade down.
  6. Hoping they just let Luck continue to rest if it looks like they won't make the playoffs anyhow. It would be nice having a top 5 pick while also allowing Brissett to gain experience. Then in 2018, you have a fully healthy Luck, a backup QB with a year's starting experience, 70 plus million in cap space, and a top 5 pick to possibly dangle for QB needy teams wanting to move up.
  7. Who will be the next HC of the Indianapolis Colts?

    Who do I want? Easily Jim Harbaugh. Who do I think it will be? Dave Toub. I think the bigger hire would be hiring Peyton Manning as Team President further distancing Irsay from being involved with the team.
  8. Colts vs Titans predictions

    Wishing the best for your recovery.
  9. Jack Mewhort (Update: placed on IR)

    I wouldn't think Mewhort would cost too much to retain. His lack of availability and somewhat inconsistent play should bring his cost down.
  10. Sign Bowman....

    I don't think he has much in coverage anymore, but I'd take him anyway as an enforcing run stopping ILB.
  11. Who's should we bring back from the PUP?

    If it were me, I'd shut down Geathers for the year just to be safe with him. Neck injuries are no joke. The one I'd bring back first would be Swoope. Indy desperately needs playmakers outside of Hilton and Doyle when he's healthy. Swoope would add another dimension defenses would have to worry about.
  12. Cornerback - Who Plays?

    I'd like to see Quincy matched up against the bigger receivers going forward. Wilson is great at countering that physical presence big WRs bring to the table. I just worry who Indy will have covering TEs going forward. Their ILB play in coverage has been awful. When is Anthony Walker supposed to be back? He supposedly is good in coverage.
  13. Man, I would love it if Ballard was able to draft Connor Williams round 1, then somehow land Nelson early round 2 since OGs usually don't go round 1 unless they are absolutely elite. Talk about fortifying your OL immediately and possibly making them into one of the league's better units. I do see Ballard really focusing in on the OL in the offseason though. Kelly, Haeg, and Mewhort (if he can stay healthy) are the only guys I like up front. I think Connor Williams is best suited at RT so could a potential longterm LT also be found or would Ballard stick with Castonzo for another season there?
  14. 2018 Free Agent Class

    As Finball said, the OL class in free agency is pretty poor. I'd rather spend money in free agency on defense, and then in the draft get plenty of help at OT and at pass rush.
  15. I feel like McGlinchey from Notre Dame will be drafted before Williams at OT.
