Our Rookies

7 posts in this topic

I know Andrew Luck will grab most of the headlines, but we're getting great production from our rookies this season!!! Allen, Fleener, Ballard and Hilton have all made big plays so far this season.

I'm no Colts historian, but I can't recall a rookie class making such an impact.

The best part about this, is that they are all rookies. They get to grow and progress together.

I was gonna be making this thread too.

Allen is gonna make some Pro Bowls one day. Hilton actually gained some yards on punt returns, don't see that very often.....not to mention another 100 yard performance with a TD. Fleener has such freakish athleticism you know he'll be a force once he settles down a little. LaVon Brazill made a nice 3rd down, toe-the-line catch. Ballard is beastin'.....although I like Brown/Carter a little better. Throw in a dose of future, franchise Nose, Josh Chapman......Grigson appears to have killed this offseason/draft.

It looks like they have all turned a corner on getting open/to the right spots.

Andrew has been on the $$$ more the last 2 games. Fewer times the DB`s are hitting us as we catch the ball. BIG!!

Hope Avery is OK. He and Hilton are using their speed now and really are almost impossible to defend given just a little time.

Stay healthy Men and the Offensive Monster could be here THIS SEASON!

A few less penalties, keep working on the running game/pass blocking, and Andrew gets a 65 completion % and the rocket will have launched.

We are not that far away.

    • Yes. Things were pretty thin towards the end for sure.
    • He's had a whopping 9 carries? I'm not saying he has recovered from MCL and ACL tears in his knee about half way through 2014. He obviously wasn't healthy w/Jets last year. If he gets back close to a 100% he's immediately the 2nd best back on our roster.    He's almost 2yrs removed from the injury  if he's going to bounce back this is the year. I like the signing lets get an up close look before teams cut to 53. I think it says more about our current back ups more than anything else. 
    • Yep. And yes its preseason, but mark my words. Judon is going to be a very good EDGE rusher for Baltimore. I wanted him so bad. Had him in almost all my mock drafts in the 5th-6th range. Lets hope Grigson was right for taking Haeg, Morrison, etc. I don't remember what round they all went, but I know Judon was available when at least 1 of those 2 were picked. But yeah. I think Judon will end up being a double digit sack EDGE rusher by his 2nd or 3rd season.
    • The way you rate the O-Line, it appears other teams are salivating to pad up their sack totals.  Rightfully so, we simply are a * poor team lately, we are not very good.  Luck needs to invest on some of his money to get protective gear so he won't be like a punching bag machine...Another bad year, so what's new year right?
    • Anybody think Kap is doing this to get released?  Its the most logical answer, or he's simply a nit-wit. ok, he's a nit-wit.

    • Hello Colts Nation   I am a long time reader of this forum but never really participated in comments but hope to join in this season.   Been a Colts fan since the 'move' when i lived in Carmel.  Actually liked the Colts before that when i was younger but it was the uniform that appealed to me.    I am wondering how do I start a topic in a forum?  Do I have to have so many replies before approved?  I tried to find the rules topic on this but no luck.   Thanks   Edit: I finally found the section on the rules to posting.  :-)
