T.Y. the Texan Slayer

In two games against Houston this season T.Y. Hilton has posted 7 catches for 189yds. 27ypc and 2TDs...  his best receiving numbers against any team.

 

I think its great that this so-called "smurf" has been showing up big against our biggest rivals. He has been one of the reasons our future is looking brighter by the week.

MUCH HARDER drafting at the end of each round! GL

I cannot believe how many good moves Grigson made....Out top FIVE draft choices all have contributed to a playoff team?

Unheard of..

Alshon Jeffrey was called out before the game Sunday by his own team to come through while teams are double teaming BM.  My point is that he was regarded as a better prospect and he's much taller than Hilton.  Proof that height isn't the sole predictor of production.

I really think the TY Hilton pick was the steal of the draft.  He's lightning in a bottle.

I see this argument all the time, and agree that it'll be interesting to see how Grigs fares in his second draft... but the "drafting at the end" bit only really applies to the first round, IMO.

Imagine taking away the Luck pick, and evaluating what Grigs did the rest of the way. I'd argue he still did better than most teams picking in the back half of the draft. JMO.

Fleener remains the pick I'm least impressed with, but Allen, Hilton and Ballard look awesome, Brazill shows promise, and I'm looking forward to seeing how Chapman and Anderson develop.

I know Luck is the piece that makes everything else work, and that these other guys were pressed into action out of necessity because the cupboard was pretty bare, but I think it needs to be noted how remarkable the Colt's '12 draft really was.

I watched the video over 20 times, great throw, great catch, three defenders, touchdown, win the game and THE CELEBRATION moving like berney. This luck to hilton connection will be a nightmare

That throw and catch is just so reminiscent of Manning's pass to Collie in the AFC Championship game against the jets.

Fleener contributed as much, if not more than Brazill, and he played significantly less than Allen. On straight contribution he was less impressive than Allen, but he had lest playing time obviously. I've been impressed with them all (those that played). Once we have better pass protection and blocking, these kids could be a big time weapon!

    •   So, you think I made some good choices? 2006CBE asked who I wanted for Harvey -- Rizzo and Bryant were not available. I think Contreras is the best choice. I know Cubs fans like Schwarber but something about his weight bothers me. If Zobrist was under 28, I might have wanted him. If you still had Fowler, that is a guy I might want.   Given what you have, Contreras would be best for us. It won't haopen though. 
    • Right now, maybe half of the top 15 (or so) interior defensive lineman are 6'1 or less and about 300 lbs or less and arm lenght of around 32 inches (Donald, Atkins, Casey, Daniels, Jarrett/Kyle Williams). Only Donald was a day one 1 pick or drafted in the first two rounds. Casey went in the 3rd round. No one else was picked in the top 100. I don't think there is an other position were so many top players share similar trait and most of them were picked late in the draft.   Are teams that afraid of having a small team that they automatically give worse grade for smaller defensive lineman? If Aaron Donald, for example, had Geno Atkins besides him instead of Michael Brockers, would that line be as effective as one would expect just from the player talent level upgrade from Brockers to Atkins or even worse? I mean, Brockers is a good player but Atkins is on another level. And individually these players are great but would they work as well together on the same line? Not sure if it's as much about the size itself as these players can use it to their advantage in quickness and leverage but maybe two dlineman with short arms would create some issues?   Just wondering why so many of them have fallen late in the draft. I understand that some teams want bigger, physical players (like BB, Parcells etc) but what about those teams that had already gotten steals later in the draft with small interior lineman would jump at the chance to select a player who had great tape and showed similar traits as their best defensive player. Like Grady Jarrett in 2015. Both the Bengals and Titans drafted a dlinemen in the 4th, Jarrett went with first pick in the 5th round Bengals pick was actually two picks before Jarrett was taken.   Though the Bengals did take Billings last year and he might be next to Atkins but he was another 4th round pick. And Titans did draft Mike Martin to be their nose tackle a year after taking Casey but he didn't pan out. And I maybe haven't looked at closely enough at bust/success rate for smaller defensive lineman so these guys could be sort of outliers and teams just missed on these guys for other reasons.    
    • Also for retrospect on this list: Dan Marino--Mark Clayton & Jim Kelly--Andre Reed were snubbed.  Can you think of others that should be on here in place of someone else?
    • http://newarena.com/nfl/ranked-the-top-24-qb-wr-duos-of-all-time/7/?amxt=fbdesktop2   11. Peyton Manning/Reggie Wayne: Indianapolis Colts   In the post Marvin Harrison era, Wayne took the torch as being Manning’s go-to target. During his 14-year career with the Colts, Wayne had eight seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving. He also managed to haul in 82 touchdowns during this time period. Manning’s resume has been chronicled ad nauseam. He is the all-time leader in passing yards (71,940), and is consistently mentioned as one of the best to ever throw a football in the history of the sport.   2. Peyton Manning/Marvin Harrison: Indianapolis Colts   The respective skill-sets of Manning and Harrison worked perfectly with one another. Manning’s unbelievable timing on throws was predicated greatly by Harrison’s ability to separate in coverage. One of the best technical receivers in league history, Harrison’s route-running capabilities led him to become an 8-time Pro Bowler and a 3-time First-team All-Pro. He also led the league in receiving yards twice with Manning under center. 114 of Manning’s 539 touchdowns throws went to Harrison. This statistic is simply mind-boggling — and further validates a top-three standing.   ( Jerry Rice also got mentioned 2 times.  #3 with Steve Young, and #1 with Joe Montana.)

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
