And this is what I've been trying to tell people. Yes, there are some people in the media who are just happy the Colts took a couple of offensive lineman because it fits the narrative that the Colts needed to draft for need and did.
But smarter analysts like Reuter realize that's drafts are about value and the Colts got incredible value with each pick. You go for value each round, not need. The Colts held true to their BPA ideal and were able to get good value and fill needs. That's how you draft.
That article really speaks on him in the pure FS role. Colts recognize he'll need a little work and I'm sure they feel they can coach him into it. Right now he'll help us in the sub packages on the tight ends and other stuff which I think he'll do well at that as he learns.
I agree with Chad and Girlzarefanstoo. There are just so many circumstances with these things, and no two people are the same. My father AND my grandfather were alcoholics, but both had different situations and choices to how they became that. Sometimes a person put in a certain environment will react to said environment, and other times they won't. From experience, it does often come down to choice. My father decided he had a problem and on his own sought for help, which saved his life. My grandfather didn't, and his health deteriorated severely.
Humans are both predictable and unpredictable. It's quite often we never get the explanation or reason for an action that we personally want, because sometimes there isn't a reason. Sometimes people just... do.
Definitely, my grandfather lived in Baltimore for a while and grew up watching him. He still pulled for Indy but always referred to them as Baltimore. I wasn't allowed to say the name Irsay in my house. The game sure has changed. I wish I could go back in time when players didn't get flagged for breathing on a player and defenses were actually feared by offenses.
