I think we will come out deeper depth wise then people expect. I'm confident Smith and Mitchel will be good players. Especially at the nickel and dime corners. And like I said Mitchel is taller than Vontae and Robinson so he's got the speed and length to play outside. Rose is another guy with some length, speed and they played a number of division 1 receivers at New Mexico state. Glover Wright has length and speed too but I've never seen him play so I'm not totally sure. We had enough confidence to put him on the 53 man roster a couple games so I think there is something they see. He was never cut from the PS at any time I can remember.
What's up with Maddon taking Jake out after he pitches 7 scoreless Innings? Brings the BullPen in and we give up hits and runs! Jake gets a No Decision, still 9-0 but Cubs lose a game when he pitches SMH! Still 35-15 through 50 games and a huge lead in the Division but this game was disappointing!
I think Green is going to be used very similarly to Geathers -- both possess the physical talents but were a little raw coming out of college.
I think Green will be a special team's beast this year and will also be used in certain defensive packages -- it sounds like they are excited about using him against bigger TEs in the slot and I hope we can use him in certain blitz packages on obvious passing downs due to his speed.
Just going to play Devil's Advocate here and compare all the teams in the running as well as the Pacers.
Indy has a young superstar in Paul George (+5)
OKC has a young superstar in Russell Westbrook (+4 because he might be getting tired of Westbrook's playing style and recklessness)
Miami doesn't have any young superstars, but a very solid group of starters in Wade, Dragic, and Bosh, and Justice could be great (+3.5 because they're good, but old)
Boston doesn't have a young superstar, but does have some solid role players (+2)
Los Angeles doesn't have a young superstar, but they have young players with potential (+2.5)
Indy, OKC, Miami, and Boston all made the playoffs last year (+1 for each round made)
Indy, Miami, Boston all play in the East (+2 to each)
Indy and OKC are smaller market teams (+2 each)
OKC can offer him the most money (+2)
Indy and Miami have legendary guys leading their franchises (+2 each)
Indy - 12
OKC - 11
Miami - 9.5
Boston - 5
LA - 2.5
Of course, this evaluation is very subjective (and admittedly a little biased), but I think there's a strong case to be made for Indy. However, that would also require Indy to pursue Durant, which they might not do, and some careful maneuvering of contracts and cap space by Larry. It may also require the team to go well into the tax, which Herb Simon may not want to do. A case can be made, but I don't think it will happen.
Last year, the broken Cavs limped into the Finals and LeBron willed them to 2 wins while averaging a bizarre 35+ points per game. With a healthy Love and Kyrie, I think the Cavs win in 6 or 7. Unlike Durant and Westbrook, LeBron has shown the ability to perform when the pressure is on. Plus, the Cavs have had a few extra days of rest, and the Warriors are coming off a taxing series against the Thunder. I expect the Finals to essentially turn into a glorified 3 point contest. I also think Draymond's dirty play will finally catch up to him and he will get that last flagrant he needs to get the 1 game suspension. I also don't see him being able to push the Cavs around like he did with the Thunder. I can absolutely see the Warriors winning again, but I'm really hoping they don't
Awesome! He isn't talked about as much as he deserves to be.
Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London
I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
