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.

    • CBS 2017 Mock Draft
      To be fair, if your RB is Purple Jesus, you SHOULD run on first and second down on a large percentage of your plays.....lol
    • LeRaven Clark signed
      Really, Many teams has their draft class signed BEFORE training camp and the Colts under Polian were one of the last teams to sign all of its draft picks so the wage scale is a factor but so was Polian
    • Haeg got first team rels at RG over Clark?
      I'm giving him a chance, as a potential backup. He didn't see the practice squad mostly because we didn't have that type of depth on the line last year. Just like when we had Xavier Nixon on the 53. Let's not act as if this is some unheard of story with him.    Wikipedia and NFL.com says he played at North Carolina state and then transferred. I don't know where you got Clemson from.   Hasn't proven anything. Limited sample size. You don't draft a guy as high as Clark for him to lose out to a guy from the 7th round. At least at RT. And I said he COULD be a surprise cut. My main argument is that a lot of guys hype him up too much. Again, all of his praise came before the draft. He was probably talked up a lot to make it appear as if there was some hope in the future for a struggling Colts line with no depth. I expect the tune will change now.
    • TY Hilton loves playing for Chud
      I think he was more frustrated by the losing and the reality of not making the playoffs.  Somewhere in his head I think he knew why it was done.  Just the competitor in him I think.

      If you put your bias to the side you'll start to see that there's room for all 3 of them.  Reitz will not be here forever.  I wouldn't be surprised if Reitz is gone by next year.  Let's see everybody play before we truly know who is the career backup as you might get a surprise.  Denzelle Good ain't never seen the Practice Squad so he's no Ulrick John type of cat.  If the guy couldn't play they could have easily let him go or put him on the PS but they didn't even want to take the chance. That says something about how he performed the entire year. Give the kid a chance.

      When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.   I'm still late to the party, but story of my life.  I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.   My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.   My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.   Favorite Colts:   1. Peyton Manning 2. Marvin Harrison 3. Reggie Wayne 4. Dallas Clark 5. Brandon Stokely   Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.   You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points.  You are wrong.  I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion.  My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.   I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy.  Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.

      Hey guys,   I have been posting for probably a year or so now.  I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70.  I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98.  I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game.  We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV!  Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
