  1. This rant is not at the OP....just a notion I see here and there... Over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over........we see good teams get beat by teams we thought were bad......and see bad teams rise up and embarrass teams that were unbeatable. Why oh why, do fans continue to carry arrogance or defeatist thoughts pre game to anyone? Why? Look at what it did to this board in week one. I mean, the

  2. One last thing to add, before I leave you folks alone, another point for consideration. It takes guts to put yourself out there, face a life long stuttering problem head on by speaking in front of large audiences when so much effort is involved to just speak. Takes guts, and considering the school he chose, in the city it’s in, he took up that challenge before he was even out of HS. Good luck folks, hope our guy is who you were looking for, on and off the field. ✌️

  3. I’ve been asked why I’m here before, and happy to answer the question. I like the franchise. I like the owner, the GM, the head coach. I even like some of the fan base. Even the city of Indianapolis. And let’s get real here.... I didn’t “lash out” here in this thread. Not even a little. I respectfully disagreed and said so. If you’d like to end this, consider it done.

  4. I would trade a 3rd rounder for Darnold in a heartbeat. Darnold is only 23, and Adam Gase has ruined this kid with the way he runs that Jets team. Everyone who leaves an Adam Gase coached team does better somewhere else. Take him for a 3rd, and have him battle it out with Eason and possibly Kelly next year to see who will be our franchise QB while using our 1st and 2nd rounder to fill big needs at CB/EDGE/WR with two elite players.

  5. The problem is that when you introduce someone with bad character issues into a locker room, they tend to have a negative affect on the people around them.

  7. First game of season (loss) is never surprising. 14 games left. That’s a lot of football for a team that didn’t make it to the playoffs last year. If, they are 1-3 after the first 4 games, I’d be worried, but I believe the Colts are finding their mojo. Go Colts.

  10. Sunday 9/27/20 vs the Jets will be Rivers 227th consecutive start and 70 consecutive starts behind Brett Favre's all time record of 297 which could be broken in 2024 (including the playoffs it will be Rivers 238th consecutive start which also 2nd all time, and 83 behind Favre's total record of 321). Rivers is at 399 TD's and about to get #400!!!! 152 yards to 60k!!!

  11. I just woke up for a few, have to work in a few hours so going back to bed. I just seen the Cubs won 10-0 over the White Sox, great stuff. Winning the division not backing in feels a lot better. Magic number is down to 1. 1 more Cubs win or a Cards loss and we win the NL Central. Fly the Flag Hozer. I just watched the highlights, this was a butt whipping Cubs 33-25 Cards 29-27 (3 back)

  12. Yeah I would probably go with that although I think the Falcons will beat the Bears. Gurley might play well. That is a tough one. I am 50/50 on it. @Jared Cisneros might have some input on this as well. Tough call.

  13. Someone on the Jets forum suggested tanking for Lawrence then trading Darnold to the Colts for a 3rd rounder This means the trade would be: Colts get OL Quenton Nelson OL Braden Smith DE Kemoko Turay RB Jordan Wilkins CB Rock Ya-Sin QB Sam Darnold Jets get 3rd Rounder in 21' I think we win I don't want Darnold though

  14. This thought has crossed my mind in the last week or so, if I'm honest. I haven't paid much attention to Darnold's career outside of the "ghosts" and knowing the Jets haven't been good. Not sure how Darnold has looked, but who knows how he would progress outside of Gase's clutches (exhibit A: Tannehill). Darnold/Eason would make for a fun TC battle for Rivers backup in his final season and potential QB of the future. If I'm not mistaken, Darnold was super young coming out.

  15. Yup I’m going here .Antonio Brown and Rivers would be absolutely lethal combo .I do not care about anything but winning a ring so with that said ?Do we really think without a significant trade or Antonio Brown Do we think it’s even possible ? Truth I say this team does not have enough talent for Rivers to compete for one.So this begs the question ? What the hell are we doing ? Kicking the can ? I think you have to go all in this year and I’m seriously questioning this team right now .

  16. Youre going around pointing fingers at people who haven't said anything about anyone in particular because? Because a few people don't care for the likes of Cam? AB? You keep picking the players who have mega egos in the NFL and are comparing it to a guy, wait, no, its him and his gf of 7+ years. Basically his wife at this point. Are you saying a man shouldn't pursue making videos with his significant other? Showing our children what a strong couple who works together does? Sounds more to me like a good example if anything. Its all my opinion. Oh, and ver

  21. If the Jets have a top 2 pick and take Lawrence or Fields, how about going after Sam Darnold? He hasn’t been in a good situation. Who knows what he could do with a good offensive line and some capable skill players. He was a 3rd overall pick after all. Surely, there’s potential there.

  22. I know it's only 2 games so far, but the Jags might end up 3-13, they looked that bad against the Dolphins. Wish we had that game under our belts, good teams find a way to beat bad teams, and the Jags are a BAD team. If, at the end of the year we're one game out for something important we're going to think back to week 1..

  23. A LT will most certainly be chosen early and very soon. It’s the only sustainable way to keep the big 3 of the OL intact. Right now, the Colts are 3rd in cap spending on OL...and neither Smith or Nelson has been paid yet. Yes...AC will come off the books in a year or so...but Kelly, Nelson and Smith will cost $45-50M on their own...and that’s only if Nelson signs a somewhat reasonable deal. After that...you have LT, RG and depth to pay. The OL could easily take up 1/3 or more of the cap space spent each year. Not saying that is a bad thing...but if the Colts are going to spend what i

  24. Trying to keep it short. I'm looking at the situation as allocating blocks of capital in the ensuing years and making sure we have a blocks to invest where we need. All of those examples you've given are true, but finding players like that involves availability, and the farther you move away from the first round the more you are at the mercy of how the draft falls and of things beyond your control. In terms of planning, I simply think that if we think of Pittman as #2 (drafted at 41) and Campbell as #3 (drafted lower), then to get a #1 WR will take a higher draft pick. But it could work o

  25. Done from me after this: Your comment about me "second guessing Ballard since he got here" is an expression a person would use to criticize another for harboring some sort of bias to perpetually criticize Ballard as standard operating procedure, instead of looking at individual decisions on their own merits. You probably think it goes back to a Grigson thing or something. Constantly swooping in to make comments about me in various threads in various ways with that thinking is not even close to being respectful. As you do with others. But my piecemeal secon

  27. I think you're going to be disappointed if you want a #1 used on a WR. Just don't see it happening. DE, LT, or QB, yes, but not WR. I get your frustration overall on WR, but let's not forget, Luck had a motley crew in 2018 and we were #6ish passing O. You probably don't know, but we're #7 right now. I'm fine with taking a WR in the 1st, if you can afford it, but there's other positions that simply have a lot greater drop off from early rounds to mid rounds. And WR is a position where your chances are still good into the mid rounds. And passing O just isn't about WRs, especially in

  29. Depending on how we look at the safety position next off season, if we are in need. I can see Ballard making Hooker a reasonable contract offer. What will happen is we just don't know. All we can do is guess. (some call that speculate)

  33. I doubt he comes back. But I dont think there will a big offer from other teams also. So possibly he comes back on a veteran minimum with some on field incentives and battle for a backup safety role. Either way, I dont think it matters too much for the colts. His production can be easily replaced at a low cost.

  38. How would ANYONE know? Seriously!?! How could anyone know NOW? Blackmon has played ONE GAME? That’s not enough for anyone to know? Hooker was said to have looked good in camp. If it’s worth anything he certainly said all the right things, like wanting to be a Colt his whole career and have his family live in Indianapolis. I think the odds are good that Hooker and Mack Get one year offers to stay in Indy and re-establish their careers. Ballard tried to do similar things with guys like Geathers. So it’s not unreasonable to think he’d do it with these tw

  40. It was a business decision for him. When we cut a player, are we quitting on them? I don't care for Ebron, but some of this stuff is just one sided. The playoffs were out of reach, we had a bad QB who never threw to the seam, and his snaps had decreased. Why not get a head start on next season if you know you have to have surgery at some point, you're in a contract year, and you don't know if your coming back anyway. Meh... it happens. Kravitz is getting desperate... old story, old news, and just looking for clicks.
