  1. Who will be the next HC of the Indianapolis Colts?

    Yeah, that's what I've been thinking, wouldn't really surprise me if that's what's going on. It wouldn't have been a good look for Gruden or the Colts if we'd hired him this year during this transitional period without Luck. I tend to lean toward believing the Irsay courting Gruden at the very least. Kravitz saying it was one thing but JMV also said he knew the Colts were going hard after Gruden. No facts to be sure, but I think JMV's word is pretty legit.
  2. Jack Mewhort (Update: placed on IR)

    Pagano just said Mewhort has been playing hurt. I rememeber them saying he was finally 100% at the start of the season but I didn't really believe that. Could he have just tweaked something since then? Sure, but I tend to think he's just been playing hurt all season. Kinda curious as to how his contract negotiations are handled if things keep going like this.
  3. The coach of Woody Hayes’ favorite opponent

    Not speaking on Gruden to Colts rumors of the past, but Gruden recently said he wants to coach again. Said he hasn't lost the itch and is preparing to come back to coaching.
  4. Coughlin Jaguars 2.0

    To be fair our front 7, or the guys mostly going up against the run, is and has been pretty healthy. Also Farley and Hairston have proven to be pretty solid against the run, willing tacklers. But yeah, I think our run D is solid enough. I don't think our pass D will be too good by any means this season even if/when they get totally healthy, but that's mostly because of inexperience. They'll get a little better but I think it'll still be a weakness for a while.
  5. Gotta love the AFC South

    I'm totally fine with that way of thinking. Me personally, I can't really help the way I feel and I just don't feel great after wins like this.
  6. Gotta love the AFC South

    Just a minor correction, they actually lost their 1st game by 20.
  7. Colts/Trade Deadline

    We got Banner with the Pats pick. But yeah, I still consider the trade a win to get out from that contract.
  8. Why are the Colts so undisciplined?

    Plus I think it would've been a really tough task for Ballard to turn over half the roster and then revamp the coaching staff all in one offseason. Especially considering Irsay waited a little later than usual to fire Grigson, long after black Monday and after coaches had been hired elsewhere and all that.
  9. Luck perhaps a LONG way off....

    I agree that it's ridiculous to think about holding Luck out once he's 100% ready to go. The only thing I will say though, if he comes back and even remotely dings that shoulder up again this season then I think they're going to be really cautious with him. Like if he comes back, tweaks the shoulder after a big hit, I wouldn't be surprised if they shut him back down.
  10. Luck perhaps a LONG way off....

    Yeah, I think some of us had been beating this drum for a while now, a 3-4 week timeline. He'll practice/rehab/practice this week, possibly start taking very minimal reps away from Brissett next week/might even rehab again next week one day, and only after next week do I think we could possibly start seeing Luck split reps with Brissett. Just guessing though.
  11. Vontae Davis

    I like Vontae, and he may only be 29, but he's had a lot of nagging injuries over the past few years, almost all on his lower body. He's hurt his foot, knee, ankle, hamstring, and groin. I feel like when CB's start to pick up a lot of lower body injuries they start to decline fast. I wouldn't be surprised if he shakes some rust off and proves to still be our best CB at the moment, but I think his best days are pretty much behind him.
  12. Luck will be practicing this week (merge)

    Not sure I totally agree that Luck doesn't show emotion/get his teammates hyped up. Sure, guys like Brady and Rivers do a distinctive freak out. But I can remember lots of times where Luck has done most versions of hyping up imagineable, and by all accounts from teammates he does successfully hype them up in his own way. So sometimes it's more measured but there have been lots of times where he's seemed really fired up.
  13. Luck will be practicing this week (merge)

    It's already been said before but another reason I wouldn't be surprised about him having to get in 3-4 weeks of practice is partly because he's not gonna take a ton of reps away from Brissett right at first. Possibly just light work this week, maybe start to really split reps with Brissett next week, and then a good week or two of him getting a good majority of the reps. So accounting for that along with just the whole refamiliarizing himself with throwing in a game situation again, 3-4 weeks doesn't seem too unlikely.
  14. Chuck - Where is the line?

    82-15. That's how badly we've been outscored in the 2nd half this season. In just 4 games.
  15. 2nd Half

    Yup. I'm not a huge Chud fan, he's not blameless, but some people are too quick to put all the blame on him. This offense has had way too similar of problems going from Pep to Chud.
