IND_The Catch_728x90

All game I was wondering what happened to Blackmon. I thought he had left the game with an injury or something, I barely heard his name at all. 3 receptions for 25 yards for the highest selected receiver in the draft against a depleted secondary. Nice

Im glad we saw a Corner that was aggressive tonight, dont know how many times I said it or will say it going forward but Powers is a Cover 2 come up and make the tackle type of Corner who doesn't take very many risks, I can live with a Corner getting beat if he takes risks, it beats a slow methodical drive where a receiver makes catch after catch which leads to a slow death

Well, when you have a quarterback like Gabbert and a Running back like Jones-Drew running it as much as he does... there is a good chance the numbers won't be that big. At least not this year.

Yeah, true.

Thanks for coming out to the forum tonight, folks. Nothing like watching a prime time Colts game with the friends on the forum! Have a great Friday and a great weekend, everyone!

    • Looking WAY Ahead: The 2017 NFL RB Draft Class....
      So, here'a Valentine's day gift for all my Colts' NFL draft fans.....   By now, some of you (perhaps even most of you?) have heard that the 2017 class of running backs is shaping up to be an all-time great class should everyone who can come out declare.     (And some of these guys could go back to school and come out in 2018, but I suspect it's not likely)   10 really great looking backs.  (In no particular order, this is NOT a ranking)      Starting with.....      1.   Leonard Fournette        LSU 2.   Nick Chubb                   Georgia 3.   Sony Michel                  Georgia 4.   Dalvin Cook                  Florida St. 5.   James Connor              Pitts 6.   Royce Freeman           Oregon 7.   Corey Clement             Wiscon 8.   Samajie Perine            Okla 9.   Kevin Taylor                 Florida 10.  Christian McCaffrey    Stanford   Pretty incredible list.       And who knows how many others might surface between now and the next 14 months or so?   Oh,  and a footnote.....   Over on my Stanford site, one fan who has visits Pro Football Focus found this amazing factoid about McCaffrey.....     how great was his 2015 season?        This great..........   (Cutting and Pasting from PFF)   Christian McCaffrey (RB, Stanford) had the best college season of any running back.   Ever. Do you remember Melvin Gordon at Wisconsin last year? He was unstoppable. In Week 14 of 2014 against Nebraska, he ran for what was at the time an NCAA record 408 yards en route to 2,587 yards on the year. He had the most yards of any running back in college football history other than the great Barry Sanders in 1988. Gordon led all running backs with a season grade of +31.7.
        In 2015, Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey made Gordon look like he was running in snow pants.  By virtually every metric, McCaffrey had one of the most historic seasons we’ve ever seen. He shattered Barry Sanders’ all-purpose yards record by 614 yards (3,864). In the Rose Bowl, he was the first player in the bowl’s history to have 100 yards rushing and 100 yards receiving.  In the end, he graded out to +51 — almost 20 points higher than Gordon’s terrific 2014 season.  In addition, he received a grade of +16.5 as a kick and punt returner – good for second in the nation.  He runs, he catches and he returns kicks at an elite level.  
    • Broncos just showed why Colts have to draft all Defense in draft...
      I know we expected Eddie Goldman to go in the first round last year, and for Malcolm Brown to go maybe top 15, but neither thing happened so I guess it's not too far fetched to possibly have Ashawn on the board at 18.  I'd pick the guy for sure.

      I wonder how much chance we have of picking up Ashawn Robinson?  I think he's a real good player. I'd love to have a rotation of Anderson, Robinson, Langford, Jones, Parry, Winn.
