  1. Why Quincy Wilson isn't playing

    This thread is the penultimate confirmation that the only way to convince the outside world that you have unity in the clubhouse is....winning. We're not even halfway into a losing season with a new front office and media/fan speculation has many of us convinced of growing subversion between management, coaches and players.... What is even more comical is that the majority of fans and media have more confidence in first time GM whose team is fighting for the first overall pick than his predecessor whose team went 3-3 in the playoffs and never finished below .500 in five seasons. It doesn't matter who or what you think the problem is.....it's the lack of logic in the room. That's why the word fan is an abbreviation for something.....and we should remember what and who we are.
  2. In their prime

    It's flawed by any definition...but the flaws of this excercise are magnified by "Prime" not reduced. You can easily leave Bo on any subjective list about who has the most talent....but you can't have any credible final 4 in a conversation about who was greatest in their prime without including the likes of Jim Brown, OJ, Sayers, even Eric Dickerson. 2 of those have to be on the list, and I'm probably leaving someone out. Payton and Emmit only make the list on the merits of their body of work....
  3. In their prime

    If that's your final 4....then you're obviously starting with a flawed data set....
  4. Who's your starting defense?

    You could get this look (Simon being your innovation) in a nickel rush sub package (particularly one of those Rex Ryan everyone standing special looks) - and it could be effective. Simon is known as an solid interior rusher from off the ball. But...let's not confuse that with the role he was brought here to play. For this year at least...Simon is your stating SAM.
  5. Who's your starting defense?

    Hooker doesn't miss a start for the next 10 years unless he's injured.
  6. Colts select Zach Banner, OL, USC (Merge)

    It really is no commentary on Clark....it simply reflects a need to increase competition for spots 8-9 on the Oline. And...if your 4th round pick of 17 beats out your 3rd round pick of 16...not sure how that is ever a disappointment unless you're on Clark's friends and family team...especially if Clark remains a productive member of the core OL depth. All that aside, it wouldn't seem that Banner is a direct threat to Clark anytime soon unless Clark gets hurt or fails to work at it.
  7. Mayock feels the significance of the life moment that it is for these mid to late round kids getting drafted. I don't think he liked a monkey making the picks rather than a human announcing their name during one of the biggest events of their lives. In that respect, I can't say I blame him. It was poorly thought out by the Colts.
  8. Chris Landry is a much respected, sharp, experienced football guy....but consider me shocked that he allowed writing quality of that level to be associated with his brand. Typos and continuity unbecoming of a professional site.
  9. FA CB's

    Agree with all that...
  10. FA CB's

    That's all true...there just isn't anything unorthodox about it across the league. Holes always have to be filled after the draft. No sense in making a move now if you might get 2 starters in the draft.
  11. FA CB's

    To the bolded - it absolutely makes sense to go into the draft needing 2 at this stage of free agency. In fact, the interests of the established, but non-premium UFA CBs align perfectly with teams that want to see how a draft rich with secondary talent will play out. Their markets will pick back up after the draft, and they'll have better visibility of the right situation to join rosterwise.
  12. Colts RB For The Future.

    Would love to see Kamara still on the board when we pick in the 2nd.... I think there will still be a higher rated defensive player that slips...but if not, Kamara would be a steal.
  13. I share your admiration for Irsay as an owner, but I can't correlate his greatness with whether or not he chooses to give a second chance to a young man about whom I have very incomplete facts, and about whom I don't know the formation factors that made him volatile at age 18. I have knocked plenty of people off of the pedestal I placed them on...yet found that my own self-righteousness was the determining factor in their relative value. Their flaws were present before and after....
  14. How good is the dline now

    Oh the irony of your actual words....a line without and edge? That's funny stuff. Me thinks you may actually be describing a circle.
  15. Ballard deal with Chiefs?

    Gone are the days where teams don't have cap room for draft picks. TJ Green carried a cap hit of 750K last year as a second rounder. LeRaven Clark was about 630K as a third. The 53rd man on your roster makes at least rookie minimum of 465K. Money isn't the reason the Chiefs wouldn't want 10 picks.
