  2. Anything less than an AFC South Championship is a failed season to me. I would say 10 wins minimum really. As many others have mentioned, it all hinges on the health of a few key players. My biggest concern at this point is coaching... I would say the Colts outperformed Pagano/Grigson/Lucks first 3 seasons and that saved Pagano's job... I am not sure if he is ever going to be able to get the Colts where they need to be... however, given a weak schedule/division and finally a good GM (on paper at least) that could be enough to keep Pagano's job safe but never allowing the Colts to progress past teams like the Pats/Steelers/ etc. It will be interesting to say the least!
  3. Size is good if they know how to use it... I know Banner has hits on him for being lazy at times and just counting on his size to make up for his lack of effort. Not going to cut it in the NFL. I am looking forward to how these new pieces fit in and shake out. Will be an exciting pre-season for sure!
  4. On paper it should be... But it depends on how the new pieces are used scheme wise... I am looking forward to seeing how it develops in pre-season!
  5. Definitely not expecting this move... but not surprised. Wouldn't be surprised if Raye ends up as a GM somewhere. Will be curious to see who is brought in!! Kick the tires Ballard!
  6. Its hard to tell exactly what the team needs yet without seeing any practices or games... On paper I think we added some nice pieces on the D and an interesting WR option on the O. I am with a lot of others that say I wouldn't be upset if we didn't pick up an O Linemen this draft given what we saw late last year. If I am just looking on paper given what we signed and what we cut from last year here is my wish list for the draft (in no particular order) 1. #2 and #3 CB 2. ILB 3. Pass Rusher 4. RB (Behind Gore and Turbin to take Gore's place after next year) I would say if we get those pieces through the draft (which I know is a tall order) then we would be in good shape to compete for the AFC South. I don't see the team going too far in the Playoffs if we win the south but stranger things have happened. Its time for Chuck to show his merit as a coach.
  7. Trading up in the top 10 to take a RB.... Makes me a bit wheezy but for now I will trust Chris Ballard's decisions... better make dang sure he has an OL to run behind tho if you do that!
  8. I/m gonna trust Ballard on this one... I always get so mixed up and turned around on Draft day its hard to keep things straight on who falls where and whatnot... I won't be upset if they trade and gather more picks for this draft or next years... as long as he gets some good talent.
  9. Did you really just try to equate trusting a Football GM to betrayals of indigenous in the past? Seriously?
  10. In my mind, anything less than winning the AFC South is a failure for 2017. Barring catastrophic injuries of course...
  11. This is a tough one, with so many needs... I don't know enough about the RBs to know if the Colts would be smart to draft one in the 1st... but I wouldn't be upset with just the BPA strategy... or, if there is a player they are specifically honing in on, trading back in the first to accumulate more pics in the 2-4th rounds... It will be fun to see what our new GM does. Please god just not another WR...
  12. Doyle. He's a fellow Cathedral grad (10 years apart or so LOL). But I also like Simon and Sheard as well. Excited to see what we get out of them!
  13. I mean really when you think about it, all everyone's days are numbered with any team they play on... no one can play forever...
  14. I think someone needs to explain to you how building a team works and how to work within the cap structure... The Eagles went all out and tried to buy themselves a superbowl a couple years ago... How did that work for them? 2 stars aren't going to win you a SB. Throwing money at a problem is what got the Colts in the predicament they are in now... Overpaying in FA and missing in the draft 3/4 years in a row... If you think about the pieces the Colts already have in place on the Offense, even if the Defense comes out and plays at an average level, as opposed to complete crap last year, then the Colts stand a much better chance of taking a huge step forward and at least winning the AFC South... That's where it all starts. Sorry to say but this year is not going to be the year the Colts field a dominant team... Not unless some key pieces fall into place through sheer luck and good scouting, scheming and coaching (which is a very long shot). Ballard is trying to get the pieces together for more than just a quick flash in the pan run at success... Which is exactly what Grigson gave us. So just cool your jets and enjoy the ride... besides, its not like its your money he is spending...
  15. Locked and loaded baby! Not a flashy singing, but how flashy can you get when signing a punter?
