    Biggest rookie defensive impact?

    I can see a Yannick Ngakue type of rookie season from Kemoko Turay if he can stay healthy. But if I had to bet I would choose the easy answer - Darius Leonard. I loved him in the draft and I think he can be a great 3 downs LB in the league. I think he's pretty much the only defensive player we drafted this year who is likely to be a 3 downs player in year 1 and I think he has the talent to stay on the field on all 3 downs and thus most probably have the biggest impact.

    True or False: Week 1 Edition

    I will put it like this - if I had to bet on Cain or the field(anybody else on the roster) I would have to take the field, but I if I had to bet on a single player to be our WR2 by the end of the season I would probably choose Cain.

    Linebacker Jenga

    From what I've seen of him on tape(2 games) I don't trust Franklin at MIKE. He might be better suited for WILL, IMO. Skai Moore and maybe Walker will probably be MIKE for now, unless we claim somebody else after the roster cuts. Walker can also play some SAM... Adams, Goode and Morrison if he stays are the others I expect to get snaps at SAM. Leonard, Franklin and Moore(if he doesn't get the start at MIKE) would get snaps at WILL. In general I don't love our MIKE position at all. Skai might develop into a good MIKE, because he's got pretty good instincts and has great coverage skills, but he needs work in the run game. IMO we still are in desperate need of a starting quality MIKE.

    Emory Hunt: Colts draft grade and analysis

    Same, I don't agree with his assessment of our O-line play last year and I don't think we will compete without Luck... but IMO if Luck is healthy and back to form we will be .500+

    Question about Quenton

    Washington hasn't played vs Notre Dame in the last 3 years AFAIK. Maybe you mistake him with someone else? Chubb had a rep vs Nelson where he caught him off balance on a stunt inside and threw him to the side.
  7. Seems like he really like our class. He also shares his UDFA sleepers from this Colts class ^

    No. I think you have it completely wrong here. And you continue to misconstrue what our problem with it is. This is not about us "not getting the news we want when we want it". This is about unprofessional behavior from a supposedly professional journalist. I have absolutely nothing against her keeping her story(if there is any) until she decides she has all the information she needs to go public with whatever it is... or if nothing comes out of it, to not go public with it at all. What I have a problem is that middle ground where you throw out mud against the fan but don't share ANY information of substance whatsoever, only vague innuendos with zero positive value and plenty of negative associated with it. Now a whole fanbase is wondering what this was about - are our two safeties with serious injury history OK? Was it about them? Is Ballard doing something shady with prospective FAs? Is this about Eric Reid? Is it something about our roster construction? Now we don't know anything, but Josina felt good enough to plant the seed that there is something 'interesting' going on there that's worth drawing attention to, but not worth illuminating... yet. Well I call nonsense on that and I guess I shouldn't be surprised that journalists do that since there are obviously others from the guild that defend this behavior as something normal.

    Indeed. My way of responding to it is by pointing out how unprofessional and click-baity this way of conducting her business is.

    It's not happening 24/7... at least not by respectable journalists. Josina is using this account in her capacity as an ESPN journalist and reporter and is using it to break news constantly(which is great). But this is horrible journalistic ethics. If she is not ready to clarify her speculations, just don't state them to begin with. What's the value to it? There is zero value to that tweet if you don't share any real information with it... you just ramp up the anxiety of a fanbase for nothing more than attention. If she's working on something bigger, just keep it until you get all your information in hand and you are ready to share the full story. What's the value to this blurb? Tell me... what value did you get out of it?

    People asked her respectfully for information and she refused to share what she meant.

    OK, exchange Colts.com with Stephen Holder if that fits better. My point is this is unprofessional nonsense. This is one of my biggest pet peeves in modern media. Throwing innuendos and speculations around like it's nothing but then refusing to clarify what exactly you meant... If you have something to say - SAY IT! If you are not ready to clarify your speculations, just don't state them to begin with. What's the value to it? There is zero value to that tweet if you don't share any real information with it... you just ramp up the anxiety of a fanbase for nothing more than attention.

    It absolutely is clickbait and attention seeking. Don't apologize for it. You are absolutely in your right to be annoyed by the unprofessional attention-seeking of what is supposed to be a journalist from a respected media outlet. When you present yourself as a journalist and reporter and you use this specific account in that specific capacity and have all your journalistic credentials in your bio, you cannot expect people to not get annoyed when you clickbait for no good reason and with no information of any substance... only to amp up the anxiety of a fanbase that's been through enough with injuries of its best players.
