    Keeping Brissett at #2

    Being the best backup in a while isn't saying much, given that the previous backup was Scott Tolzein. But I'd take Matt Hasselbeck in a heartbeat over Jacoby Brissett. Heck, I'd take him today over Jacoby Brissett if he could be coaxed out of retirement. Hopefully, we won't see Brissett on the field at all this year except for some preseason action and possibly some garbage time snaps.

    Biggest rookie defensive impact?

    You might even say that Quenton Nelson will be the rookie that has the biggest impact on the defense this year. That upgraded O-line should cut down on the three-and-outs, and keep the D off the field a bit longer.

    2018 Colts Road Games

    The bad news is that the Titans game is on December 30, and that stadium can be unbelievably cold. OK, not Green Bay or Buffalo cold, but miserable in its own way. Or it could be sunny and mid-50s. Check the weather forecast before you buy your tickets. The good news is that either the Colts or the Titans (or both) will probably be so far out of the playoff hunt by then that tickets will be dirt cheap.

    Question about Quenton

    What jumps off the tape at you is how Nelson never eases up on his assignment. Even when the play is going to the other side, or has gone past him, he keeps imposing his will on the defender, all the way to the whistle. That has to be frustrating and demoralizing for a defender to have to face that all day.

    Question about Quenton

    I watched a lot of tape on him too, including some complete game tapes, and I sure didn't see anyone get the better of him. Once in a while, you'll see a guy playing off of his block and making a tackle on a RB after a short gain, but even that is rare. AS CSM just said, that one play against Chubb looked like a slip, and that's gonna happen. Most of the guys he blocks stay blocked -- or planted. This kid is something special.

    Andrew Luck is Dr. Dre

    Gotta hand it to Dr. Dre. He's been selling those $30 headphones to suckers for hundreds of bucks, and laughing all the way to the bank.
  8. I'm in the same boat, but in an out-of-market area that is only about a four-hour drive from Indy. We canceled the Sunday Ticket at the end of last season, and I won't be renewing or buying any more single-game tickets until we have some solid evidence that this isn't just the same old song and dance we got last year. Once bitten, twice shy.

    Not another Hines Thread...

    And some are just as likely to look at a fat, ugly woman and think, "She may be a little rough, but I can coach her up to pretty".
  10. Exactly. Lots of guys on those rookie contracts look like a pretty good deal until they hit free agency after that fourth year.
  11. Four or five wins might still land the #1 pick next year, and we could easily be looking at a five-win season. Even just another Top-5 would go a long way toward rebuilding the franchise. Couple that with a ton of cap roll-over money, and we could be looking at 2020 to be our year.

    Saints sign QB J.T. Barrett.

    Fine. Let the Saints waste a spot on their 90-man camp roster on him. The Colts could use some better competition for a QB spot on the practice squad, but Barrett isn't it.
  13. Grigson: "Well at least I set one record -- for the crappiest draft in Colts history!" Ballard: "Hold my beer..."
  14. Two starters and some Practice Squad cannon fodder. Ballard seems to be channeling the ghost of Ryan Grigson.
  15. Yup. We flip back and forth with Houston. The Colts pick ahead of the Texans in Round 3.
