  1. Past hour
  2. I will throw last season out, because we were awful... but if we go back to 2016, we had 1,628 rushing yards (1,438 in 2015). We had 355 total receptions in 2015 with TY and Moncrief having over 60, Fleener over 50, A. Johnson at 41 and Gore at 34... nobody else over 20. In 2016 we had 370 receptions, with TY at 91, Doyle at 59, Gore at 38, D. Allen at 35, Dorsett at 33, Moncrief at 30, and two back up RBs in the 20 catch range. In 2016, TY had 1448 yards, Doyle had 584 yards, and Dorsett had 528, Allen had 406, Moncrief had 307, and nobody else over 300. In 2015, TY had 1128 yards, Moncrief had 733 yards, A. Johnson had 503, Fleener had 491 and nobody else over 300. You are predicting our 2 rookie RBs to be at 1,080 yards. If we go by 2015 and 2016, that means you are suggesting Mack and Turbin will combine for between 350-550 yards. I tend to doubt we'll have 2 rookie RBs rushing for 500+ yards each, but maybe I'm wrong. You are predicting 3 of our rookies (Hines, Cain and Fountain) to have 300+ yards, with Cain and Fountain each having 30+ catches (I'm assuming you expect Hines to have 30+ catches, too, given he's 600+ yards receiving). The last two times we have had a decent offense we have had 5 and 6 guys over 30 receptions and 5 and 4 guys with over 300 yards receiving. You have 3 rookies meeting or exceeding both of those numbers. We also have TY, Doyle, Ebron on this team who are all (IMO) highly likely to exceed those numbers. If all 3 of the predicted rookies you have do it, we will have had a better year offensively than 2015 or 2016 in terms of receiving. These rookies are also competing with veterans aside from TY, Doyle and Ebron who include Grant, Rogers, Swoope, Mack, Turbin, Michael and Ferguson (while none of these guys are spectacular, they have all had productive seasons either bringing in passes or rushing the ball in this league). We also are not totally sure Luck will be 100% week 1. I hope you're right, but I tend to think you're greatly overreaching for what you expect out of the skill players on offense.
  3. I'll give the Dodgers credit for this....they have had HUGE luck with their minor leagues. I mean all these kids that come up just end up taking off. They have this kid this year that is an all-star out of nowhere....Muncy. I mean this is after Bellinger last year. Heck even Kemp comes back and loses a ton of weight and turns back into an all-star. Team just seems very fortunate. There are a lot of teams still in that race out West...but this certainly bodes well for the Dodgers. I was hoping he would go to the Phillies.

    Cowherd AFC south predictions

    If Luck plays the whole year I think the top to are switched around we are 10-6 and Texans are 9-7.

    Cowherd AFC south predictions

    I might flip flop the Jags and Texans.... otherwise looks reasonable
  7. With a lot of post about record predictions, I thought I would post his predictions. 1. Texans 10-6 2. Colts 9-7 3. Jags 8-8 4. Titans 7-9 ( I think) says having Reich and better oline will help luck. Thinks our dline is better than what people perceive. We don't leave Lucas oil the whole month of November. if the jags finish 3rd in the division, would be great.

    It's a misdemeanor.....they get suspended for that crap? Might as well throw jay walking in there. I don't know what the case is but a misdemeanor is nothing.

    Can the Colts win Now ?

    i think our skill positions were better back then we dont really have anyone now that makes up for losing reggie wayne, while ty, allen, fleener, and ballard all had solid rookies seasons

    Assuming Luck is ready to go week one...

    I have to agree. That coupled with what appears to be a strong draft class, an improved offensive line and finally a new playing surface that hopefully cuts down on injuries and improves performance and we just might be in store for one heck of a year. Could the stars finally be aligning?

    Assuming Luck is ready to go week one...

    I understand there is a good chance it takes some time to work into form... but Andrew has performed at a very high level with a bum shoulder for several seasons prior to all this time off. He very well might feel better throwing the ball than he ever has.

    I think Mack and Wilkins will be a nice Duo.

    Assuming Luck is ready to go week one...

    I won't guess on the whole season, but I'd love him to come out of the gate in the opener and throw for 350 and 3 tds. Would silence a lot of people.

    Can the Colts win Now ?

    There are a few things that negative outlooks are overlooking.... First - we began the defensive transition a year ago with personnel. Yes, our LB's are young and unproven but we have enough experienced personnel to run Ballard's 4-3. The core of our current defense was competent enough to win 8 games last year if we could have scored a little easier. That same core returns and is better suited to the new scheme with young talent specifically selected for it. I don't like the scheme...but that's got nothing to do with it. Second - we'll score easier this year. We'll have an offensive identity and game specific planning. Luck or no Luck. Third - The OL is going to be pretty darn good. We'll run the ball well. It would be easy to hedge on all of our unknowns, but that posture overlooks that the foundation to win 6-8 games is already in place without Luck and Luck will add to that. We're a 10 win team already.

    I don't see the harm in keeping him while his legal situation gets resolved. Worse case scenario, the league suspends him
  18. I gave a projection. Doesnt mean it will happen. You want me to predict he'll be a bust and be cut within 3 years?
  19. Come on man you can't be serious? You have every draft pick contributing significantly. No draft has every player contributing significantly. Even the 2012 draft class didn't have everyone drafted player contributing. And that is beside the point. The point is you are making guesses on what the players are going to do even though you have not seen them play a down. Then Stephen makes a guess on the draft class as a whole and you question it because he has not seen the players play a down. They are the same thing... they are guesses, based on no information.

    Assuming Luck is ready to go week one...

    I've questioned the rusty part myself as well. He should be decent after all of the end of OTAs, throwing during down time before camp, training camp and preseason. He should have shaken off a good deal of the rust, but I'm sure there will be some things here or there I suppose.
  21. I said lewis would have 1.5 sacks, cain and fountain would combine for 650 yards and 8 tds, and adams and franklin would get 30 tackles. How is that the best?

    So you actually think that the play was called exactly way it went down? Really? If you do...there really is no discussion. +

    Can the Colts win Now ?

    I mean in reality I wouldn't bet everything I owned on them hoisting the trophy at the end, but I don't think it's totally crazy to think they have a solid winning season. It truly is a guessing game at this point though. Our coaching is a huge wildcard in how we do also.
  24. Oh, I see. Two things: 1) Your stats do say they are going to be the best draft class. You have every draft pick contributing pretty significantly... what other draft class has that happened? 2) Why is it your WAG projections based on no information have more merit that Stephen's WAG based on no information?

    The new colts.com is SLICK!!!/Questions and problems (merge)

    First of all how do I get to the desktop wallpapers now? 2nd. Horrible minimal design. Things that were once at your fingertips and a click away are hidden or impossible to find or you have to drill through multiple menus. Absolutely awful. I have an idea. Let's send all web designers back to school. Somewhere along the line they forgot how to make a good looking and functional web site. The new colts.com is not functional, at least it doesn't function very well, actually it is awful at function, and the design is horrible. 1 first page just scrolls and scrolls. Menus are so poorly designed it is unreal. Fans menu used have a nice hover drop down and I could get to anything in a heartbeat. This site is pure garbage. My 10 year old could have designed a better looking more functional website. It's horrrid. I will stop now.

    Can the Colts win Now ?

    I'm fairly optimistic as long as Luck is healthy. Especially if the offense is good as a I think it can be. I remember the Falcons rolled all the way to the SuperBowl with a defense full of youth that was crappy for most of the year and a high octane offense that had parts similar to the ones we've got outside of Julio Jones. I'm not predicting that for us but I do think we have good enough parts to beat anybody in this division more than once for sure. We've got good enough parts to make it to the playoffs I feel. I'm sure somebodies got their arms folded over my comments but that's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.
  27. I don't think Kawhi knows what he wants lol. He's turning into a whiny little you know what! I read he has no desire to play with LeBron either, he wants to be the man. I am hearing LA Clippers which is ridiculous. I guess we'll see soon enough. If he doesn't commit long term to the Raptors (which he won't). They need to trade him right before the all star break. Dumb move by the Raptors. Great move by the Spurs though, send him East, get an all star, decent bench player and pick in return. DeRozan will fit well in SA. They made the playoffs without Kawhi last year and they'll make the playoffs again this year.
