I thought it was interesting when Irsay said that they were talking to some teams who were ahead of them after the Kelly pick who said they were very close to picking Kelly if their guy hadn't fallen to them. Goes to show that Kelly was pretty high on a number of teams draft board. He was thought very highly of.
14 TD passes 9 INT with a passer 88.7 is not what I`d call Pro Bowl material. He made it because others didn`t go. Just my two cents! Bridgewater and Braxton two different players anyways. Shouldn`t be in the same discussion.
Who says we didn't make a call to Irvine and see about the possibility??? And ultimately it's up to the free agent where they wanna sign. Plus financially with a Luck deal looming we didn't really have the money to fork out.
And I don't know how you think that if we'd just got a pass rusher that you want and think is good then all the sudden our pass rush is fixed and all is well. That is faaaarr from the case and not reality at all. Even the the top pass rushers in this class have thier question marks and uncertainty and need more development in some way. If we did take one that was available he might have gave us a few sacks next year but likely not anything much that would vastly improve our pass rush. And the bottom line is they weren't the best players on the Colts board when the Colts picked. And we did get Maggit in UDFA who has real potential, so that's something to be encouraged about in that area.
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.
