  3. I think the last two WR spots go to Patmon, who Ballard just spoke highly of this week, and Duhlin. His ST work gives him the edge for the last spot.

  4. You may not see our WRs as top 10, but our passing O was 11th last year with a limited Rivers who was without Campbell most of the year, and a rook Pittman who was also out some. In fact, we were only a few yards/game off being top 10. If you believe Wentz will be as good as a limited Rivers, then a more mature Pittman and a healthy Campbell should easily add 10 more yards per game, putting us up near 6th/7th in passing O. That of course assumes Wentz rebounds, and Campbell stays healthy. Big ifs, but I'm more and more confident on Wentz. Regardless though, Reich's scheme IMO will

  5. I'll be completely honest here: Favorite - Malik Hooker I bought in to the hype about him being the next coming of Ed Reed. Least favorite - Darius Leonard and Braden Smith There were players still in the board that I wanted. I've never been more happy to be wrong than my knee-jerk reaction to these picks.

  6. Wasn't a big fan of the Funch signing, but was hopeful once he signed. He signed with GB last year for a cheap contract (much cheaper than the Indy contract) and then opted out lol. He then took a pay cut to stay another year in GB for this year. There was a youtube video he did, where he talked about his financial goals. Basically said his Indy contract would set him up for life based on his budget. While I applaud his budget and financial goal setting, just seemed strange to me. Got the vibe that playing wasn't really a driving desire for him.

  8. Yeah that really stinks with happened with Funch, his injury was unfortunate. I was wanting to see his game in a Colts uni. I am ok with Pittman as well.

  9. Yup. I like Pittman a lot. We haven't had a legit X in the last 15-20 years. Always had smaller speedy guys featured like TY, Marvin, and Reggie and never a good legit big partner at X. Over the last 5 years, our Xs have been tweener guys like Pascal, Grant, Inman, etc.. Funch was a legit X type but we all know what happened there. I literally can't think of legit X type that was 6-3 or bigger in the last 20 years for the Colts. With Reich's brand of O, I think Pittman will be used a ton. IIRC, very good catch rate compared to the other WRs. Pretty good route running in year one, a

  10. A Z can line up everywhere, and is typically your motion WR. I'd like to see him (Patmon) in motion with some build up speed with his size doing a 9 route. Would be a great mismatch opportunity and/or likely take up a double. But in general, tired of seeing our Z (Hilton) on the outside, typically the sideline, trying to do a back shoulder or quick come back. I'd simply prefer either someone quicker with better run-separation (like Campbell) or someone bigger that would be more of a mismatch. I think Hilton's last-cut separation and route running would be best used in the slot.

  11. Yeah sort of like a Flanker, next to the TE. That would be interesting, he has the talent, size, and speed to do so but his route running is questionable like you basically said. I do think he makes the 53 so we will see.

  12. Something that would be interesting to me is seeing Patmon work at Z if his route running and ball tracking is up to snuff. I think he's fast enough, just not sure he'd be good on cuts. I'd love to see a 9 or backshoulder though.

  13. Harris could make it too I agree. We have some overall talent here. It will be interesting to see what Reich does.

  14. Yeah the Campbell injury history did cross my mind as it has many I am sure. I am so glad we re-signed TY, he doesn't have the speed as he once did but still can out run several DB's. I actually like Dulin but I doubt he makes the roster of 53.

  15. I hate fake years, but might as well play the game all the other teams are playing. Typically I wouldn't push off that much, but given this years lower restraints, extensions, and the likelihood of increased cap next year, I get it. Personally I would hope his base or per game pay check amount is higher, or at least has some type of conditional dollars for playing time, and perhaps some incentives.

  16. https://www.google.com/amp/s/coltswire.usatoday.com/2021/05/14/indianapolis-colts-eric-fisher-contract-voidable-year-2022/amp/ Still haven't seen details but I imagine if it structured like reported it would look something like this. 2021: $1m base, $4.2m signing bonus, 2022: $4.2m signing bonus(voidable year, dead cap) Maybe a little smaller signing bonus, but I would think if you were going to go that route you would maximize the 2021 cap savings. This does it based on $9.4m reported contract. Saves us money this year for extensions

  17. I voted Patmon and Strachan, Strachan is a stretch but I love his size. I say we keep 6, and I voted yes. I can see TY and Campbell playing both at times.

  18. One comment that I liked hearing from Ballard this week was that Strachan was less raw than one would expect coming from a small school. He also said Patmon has major upside playing outside the numbers. I still think only one of the two above makes the 53. And I think I'm leading more an more toward Strachan as I think he can flex inside and outside, and simply plays bigger.

  20. Yep. Jake stopped the bleeding and Kris Bryant (aka MVP) hit a 2 run HR. Cubs take down the Tigers 4-2. We are still hovering right around that .500 mark at 18-19.

  21. Where was Ja’Wuan’s agent? Absolutely stupid to leave the facility like he did, particularly with his track record and what was riding on it. He had been a bust of a signing. Broncos would love to get out of that contract and then he gifts it to them costing himself ten million (and I’m guessing his agent too). Ooof!

  23. I think the National Media is scared, scared to admit that Philly just ran a Franchise QB out of town all while firing the head coach that "supposedly" didn't even speak with his QB for the majority of the season! Seems like the disconnect starts at the top to me.....but this article is straight hot garbage! Funny thing is Donovan McNabb was a fairly successful QB in Philly and they booed him starting on draft day thru the end of his career! LOL "Though head coach Frank Reich is confident he and staff can get Wentz back to form, USA TODAY’s Mike Jones is less bullish on the situat

  24. Like I said in my post, 4.7 isn't good or bad. He's a guy known for size and power more than speed. I'd guess his agility scores are probably better than his speed scores. He's a different mold than Paye. I can see Dayo being more the tweener DE/3T once he develops. Paye is good sliding inside too, but more in the mold of pure speed rusher. He's got a good blend of speed, agility, burst, and power. The Watts and Bosas are a bit of unicorns obviously. The Watts' 40 was not great, but their agility and burst scores were elite. I'm guessing Dayo's, had he been able to test, would hav

  26. See the post above yours. That poster did a really good job explaining how it’s technically a two year deal but it’s really a one year deal. The second year is just a book keeping move.

  27. No doubt. I'm not saying they won't sign them. I'm just saying that getting a franchise LT is more important. You're right, they have to take into account how many years Fisher can play at a high level. We were so lucky with AC.

  28. You're probably right. But a franchise LT is the more important position. More than RT, and even an All Pro LB. I'm not saying he'll sacrifice either of them in order to sign Fisher long term. But I think that once they see that Fisher can play, they'll want to wrap him up long term. He won't be cheap either. I think it was on one of the podcast they pointed out where all of the LTs for the playoff teams were drafted. Getting one that works out past the first round is pretty rare. And we probably won't even have a first rounder next year.

  30. Christopher Reeve was the best Superman ever and it isn't even close IMO. You don't know what you are missing by not seeing Superman and Superman II. After the 2nd one they weren't as good but the first 2 are easily 4 Star out of 5 movies. Superman came out in 1978, Superman II in 1980. Superman II was the best where he fought Zod.

  33. This is absolutely a thing, and I'm glad to see someone has broken it down. If you come off a bye to play another team that's coming off a bye, it negates any advantage you might get from your bye week. The other team is just as rested, etc. And the other factors broken down in Sharp's chart -- more/less rest than opponent, short week road games, etc -- the Colts are average or worse in all these areas. I'm not a conspiracy theorist, I don't think the NFL has an agenda against the Colts, I don't complain about every perceived slight or disadvantage... but the schedule makers have

  34. Respectfully, he has to do much more. For the Colts to compete for the conference, Wentz needs to replicate his 2017 season and be available for all 16 games. Right now, this appears to be a tougher slate of games than in 2020, swapping out nfc north for nfc west, and not much drop-off switching afc north for afc east. The Colts will probably need to win 12-13 games to secure the division and attain a high seed. Additionally, Wentz has the biggest cap hit on the team which gave up (so far) 3rd and 2nd round picks to acquire him.He would need to perform up to that investment.

  35. I voted Patmon and Dulin. My gut tells me they wouldn't have kept Patmon on the 53 but inactive all of last year if they weren't seeing something they could develop. We knew he was a development type player when he was drafted... with all the injuries we had last year, I think they would've sent him to the PS unless they were very concerned he'd be scooped up and we'd lose talent (they seemed to be fine bouncing guys like M. Johnson, Harris, etc. back and forth from the PS and those guys actually suited up on Sundays). Then, I voted 7 WRs (at least to start). Harris reminds me

  36. I like him too, but as a CFB WR. He was consistent as heck at USC, and very good at some things, but just very limited. Running 4.6s at 185lbs might be something that's hard to overcome. Nicks has about 25lbs on Vaughns, so they're very different to me in terms of profiles. I wouldn't be shocked though if Vaughns fights his tail off and makes some noise. He's basically a slower, lighter, version of Pascal. Just not sure he's a fit given our WR unit makeup already. Now I might feel different if Campbell got hurt again. I'd love Vaughns to at least stick on the PS at minimum.

  38. Looks like the Broncos finally decided to cut Ja'Wuan James and decided to void is 10 million dollar contract due to the offsite injury. It will be interesting to see how the NFLPA will respond since they were the ones telling players to not go to the voluntary workouts, even James tweeted that they need to do something because he listened to them and got hurt. With this happening I can only imagine the same will happen to Hamilton. https://www.nfl.com/news/broncos-wr-daesean-hamilton-suffers-acl-tear

  39. This is such a cluster. The NFLPA is really looking out for the veteran players that they feel are established and do not need to go to voluntary things and that they want to protect from excessive team activities etc. They are 100% not looking out for young or unestablished players trying to crack a roster, keep a job or make a name for themselves. Also, this stuff is right in contracts. Literally all the players, agents, NFLPA reps know this or should know this. They even have acknowledged that players w $ tied to workout bonuses would likely attend becaus
