I didn't see a current thread on this and wanted to know if you could help. Looking for a good team name, Colts related of course. Right now, I am rolling with "Better Lucky Than Gored" but I'm looking for a better one. Shoot.
Some players in the league you can see they have a nasty demeanor on the field through watching them play and how they carry themselves. In general I think all a Guard can be and is often responsible for is often underrated. Quite a few are responsible for quite a lot. The Center is not always the one making the decisions among the O Line, Calling out who to block and such. Not to mention Guards have to deal with a variety of blitzes and stunt. Plus you have some the best pass rushers and run stuffers in the game being interior D Linemen , Aaron Donald. Suh. Atkins, Cox, Short
Allen is a great blocker and that is always helpful and he is also capable, yet overrated at receiver. He was a red zone threat for a period but I didn't see it last year and didn't see it this preseason when we struggled in the red zone.
I don't get why we paid Allen so much money but I'd definitely rather give it to him than Fleener. Fleener is just too unreliable with his route running and pass catching and cannot break a tackle to save his life. That's why you are hearing the news that him and Brees are jelling. Both TEs got overpaid this year but that's how it goes in the NFL sometimes.
