C position: Holmes and Harrison can't pass block and can't run block, so Colts took Kelly to start, who can do both, and Blythe to be a backup, who can run block at least.
G position: Clark is not a tackle with his change of direction ability, but he is a powerful run blocker and doesn't allow to bull rush him. Definition of a guard.
T position: Haeg is plan C for RT spot (Reitz is plan B) and a project to start. Opposite to Clark, isn't powerful, but is very agile and aware.
More or less agree, but as Colts fans you should know as well as anyone it's deeper than coaching. You haven't had "decent" coaching since Arians left. Yet you still finish better than the Titans & Jags.
It's like an expectation or something. You're the Colts the standard has been set by Dungy & Peyton pretty high & your players come in with the expectations of playing up to that level.
Of course, getting to the AFCCG helps maintaining that standard just like winning 10 games a year. But Chucks not a good coach & he's not going to be able to keep it up much longer.
The Jaguars are bringing in talented players that expect to win, but how many losing seasons can a rookie endure before looking towards FA? How long before your veterans check out & just go through the motions?
I'm not counting the Jaguars out, but like you say, let's see them do something first before we crown them.
This wasn't a sexy draft, but the score boards will be!
Solidified O-line. Some development types, some starters right away. But it all circulates around helping Luck.
Would have liked a little more help on the defensive side, but again, that might reflect on me not knowing TJ Green. Might be a reach, might be a rather unknown and raw diamond.
Definitely, my grandfather lived in Baltimore for a while and grew up watching him. He still pulled for Indy but always referred to them as Baltimore. I wasn't allowed to say the name Irsay in my house. The game sure has changed. I wish I could go back in time when players didn't get flagged for breathing on a player and defenses were actually feared by offenses.
