These country boys call themselves "Black and Decker"

A wonderful story on DT.


 


These WRs are pretty much all I asked for when we lost to the Saints in the superbowl - some targets that can beat the coverage do not always require Manning to throw 100% accurate. Unfortunately Manning is no longer with Colts, but he has gotten the weapons now. Hope they help him get the trophy he has always deserved.

That's a good point...Manning throws to guys that arent open now..

..He expects them to wall off the defender like a basketball player getting a rebound..

That's big this week agaionst baltimore's corners

In the year Manning was with Colts we just never had receivers that were physically stronger or taller or faster than players who cover them. If very average QBs like Matt Staford and Andy Dalton look elite once they have their tall and fast weapons, I just don't believe Manning couldn't take advantage of the gifts and take them to an even higher level.

Fun read! This passage made me laugh:

 

You might become best friends, too, if you both had to deal with the joy and the hell of playing with a picky perfectionist like Manning every day.

"Our favorite," Decker says, "is when he comes to you on the sideline after you screw up and asks you a question he already knows the answer to. He'll be like, 'Now, on the down and in, are you supposed to cut that up at 5 yards or 7?' And you'll be like, 'Five,' even though you both know you were at 7. And he'll be like, 'Oh, OK. Thanks.'"

People think Manning has done for Decker and Thomas what Madonna did for bras. But they might try looking at it from the other end.

 

I love that they are getting national recognition. They are smart, hard-working youths, and they will only get better.

Both 25....Both 1,000 yards....and Elway seemed to know they could do this....

I think their size might make them effective even in the tough weather Saturday...

D. Thomas made the biggest play of last season....vs. Pitt in the wild card game..the 80-yard pass/run

    •   No, we need a game-breaker RB, a game-breaker TE, a big bodied game-breaker WR, a game-breaker LBr, % let's just get a whole team of game-breakers, why didn't we do this before?! Fire the Colts from the city of Indy!! This is ridiculous! I put this on Irsay! Where is irsay in all this?! Fire Mcdaniels! This team is absolute trash!
    • At the end of the day, I would be happy with either. I do think you could get 80% of Barkley's production from a back in round 2 or 3. I don't think the same can be said for a pass rusher of Nick Chubb's calibre. The other side of the coin is, I don't believe there is a single player who can improve us more for 2018 than Barkley.
    • It's Ballard who runs the business, but he stated and also proved that he listens. With McDaniels arriving, he will have his voice  heard. And because of that, I think the Colts will go for someone like Deion Lewis in free agency, and draft another guy in the 2nd, maybe 3rd day, then McDaniels will implement a similar running by committee running game, what the Patriot's been using for a long time.   That does not require an elite rusher, so I just don't see them drafting a running back in the first round.
    •   People downplay the importance of RB in relation to other positions  A very good or even just good RB will usually be good enough.   Given the Colts current situation and roster I would not take B Sanders at #3 either ... This isn't 80's or 90's: "Good-Very Good" Pass Rushers, Corners, etc ... are more beneficial than "Elite" RBs.   I bet the Steelers would have opted for Shazier and a "Good" RB over "Elite" Bell and no Shazier for their playoff run if given the choice.
    • After watching the show, I came away with the thought that unless the Colts move back to around the 9-11 area, there is no way we are going to be taking Quentin Nelson from Notre Dame. Although I love the guy, I believe with McDaniel's offensive scheme, and Luck getting rid of the ball quickly most of the time, a guard at #3 just does not make sense. I think Chubb or Barkley, depending on who is there will be the choice, although if Barkley is there, and a QB, or even possibly Chubb, there are going to be teams wanting to move up. I really came away thinking how much I would like Chubb after all I have read on him lately, but if the right picks were involved, and we could move down just a bit, have to think about it. I found it interesting that Polian said he would not move off our spot unless we got at least another 1st draft pick next year, and one more high round this year. It seems Barkley, Chubb, Rosen, and Darnold, and possibly Allen are going to have a lot of suitors vying for them. FA will change all this, but Ballard is going to have to make some tough decisions on draft day I believe.   Can't believe it is only 3 months away.
