  1. A positive thread about Luck working out with receivers instantly turns in to an argument about who's paying for it.

  4. Agreed. EA is the worst triple A developer like ever. Madden games have been trash for the longest time. I literally only play it once in a while when a friend is over. Its essentially a $ 60 party game.

  5. Kevin Pritchard is doing an interview during SL game. Figured I would post some highlights: 1. Evaluated team last year as funnest team hes been around. Had fun, worked hard and made sacrifices and competed. 2. Oladipo - Expectations, didn't expect him to come out like that last year. Expected him to improve and expand his role. Had high expectations for him and Sabonis. 3. Trade options (PG) - wasn't as "thick" as he wanted to be. Not as many options, but loved both players and had them ranked higher than most. 4. Arvydas Sabonis talk. 5. Went into off-season this year to add best shooter we could(McDermott) and best play maker we could(Evans). 6. Wanted to get better, Herb Simon said he didn't want to tank and bottom out. Wanted to compete and get better. 7. $50m+ next summer. 8. Asked who we could get with all the cap space, said we should pretty good, you never know. 9. Nate talk- tough and hard nosed. Tone setter. Great leadership from players. 10. Vic first in the gym. 11. Alize Johnson talk - wherever ball is, he finds it. Said great determination to find ball. Used energy/reb off bench of Jordan Bell as comp. 12. Holiday was top 12 on his board, couldn't believe he was there. Calls him pesky. Wow, that was quick fire.

  8. QB's take care of the tab on this stuff...how did this become the conversation when we finally after a year of speculation Andrew is throwing full go with his wideouts?

  9. I wouldn't at all be surprised if the Colts aren't picking up the tabs for a lot of these expenses. I seriously doubt Luck is forcing anybody to do anything. I'm guessing it's more of a teammate willing to help out another teammate. Especially when that teammate decides who he throws the ball to, which ultimately decides what kind of season/(and in the much longer view) career they may end up having. I'm sure none of these guys needed their arms twisted to make the trip to Cali.

  10. The key to everything was the firing of Grigson and the hiring of Ballard. The team was bereft of talent, which was definitely masked by Luck. Yes, Luck being gone likely saved his arm and career and doomed Pagano. But there wasn’t going to be an 11-5 record last year. This team was spiraling downhill and even Luck couldn’t have saved it. Ballard has rebuilt this team on the fly and done a heckuva job. Now, with competent coaching and Luck back, 11-5 is a real possibility. And it all starts with Ballard.

  11. We used to do this every offseason, but it has been at least a couple years since I had the attention span to put a full ranking together. Below are my completely subjective QB rankings, arranged in categories/tiers that make sense to me. These rankings are based on pretty much everything that I think is relevant for NFL QBs -- team accomplishments, coaching staffs, past performance, future projections (somewhat), injury history, etc. I'd love to see anyone else's rankings also, and to compare notes. I'm sure there will be plenty of disagreement on some of these. Elite -- To me, this is an exclusive group, which actually has shrunk in the last two years. I think there’s still a line between these three and the rest; these guys are are assaulting all-time records, and they have team-level accomplishments that put them ahead of the pack. To me, it gets tricky with Brees because the Saints have missed the playoffs four of the last six seasons, and I think an “elite” QB basically guarantees his team a playoff spot every season, but in analyzing their situation, it’s obvious that his team is lopsided in its structure and output, and they fall short despite his great performances. Tom Brady -- It hurts me to say, as a Manning fan, but Brady is #1 because even though he’s in a great situation and gets a ton of help from coaching/teammates, he has the individual stats, team accomplishments, career longevity, and he has a track record of shining in the biggest moments. There are no relevant blemishes on his resume, IMO. His status as the overall GOAT was solidified for me in the SB vs the Falcons, leading a an unprecedented comeback on the grandest stage. Objectively, he’s not only the best in the game, but probably the best of the last 35 years. Aaron Rodgers -- One of the deadliest playmakers ever to play QB, but unlike other outstanding performers, like Favre, he takes care of the ball, and unlike other big time passers like Brady, Brees, Manning, etc., he’s not physically limited in or out of the pocket, or with any throws or areas of the field. He doesn’t have a lot of single season volume records, but he owns the two most efficient passing seasons back to back in 2011 and 2012, and he legitimizes those performances every season. He can make every throw, when he’s healthy his team is a playoff contender, and he seems to be able to make magic happen in the most unexpected situations, including Hail Mary attempts in recent seasons. Still the player I would choose to build a team around for the next 3-5 years. Drew Brees -- I sometimes debate whether he belongs in this tier, because his team seems to stay mediocre, but I ultimately decided that it’s not fair to downgrade him just because his team is lopsided and can’t play defense. Historically, when the defense is average or better, they make the playoffs and advance, but the offense always plays well with Brees under center, so I think it’s clear that it’s not Brees’ fault that the Saints haven’t performed better over the last six years. Statistically, he’s one of the greatest of all time, and when I watch him, I’m impressed by how he has complete command of the game; he has essentially mastered the position. When he’s on a roll, their passing attack is unstoppable. Nobles -- Very high class, upper echelon QBs who consistently perform at a high level, despite whatever else is going on around them. Ben Roethlisberger -- Over the last few seasons, he’s become one of the most efficient QBs in the league by adjusting his offense to get the ball out and to playmakers faster, and his sack percentage has been nearly cut in half (I hope the Colts are paying attention), but he still can hang in there and wait for receivers down the field, shrug off tacklers and then throw great passes to every level of the field. He will be a 1st ballot HOFer. Philip Rivers -- Just as good as Ben, more efficient at times but not as physically gifted, stuck on a team that can’t maximize their talent and get to a Super Bowl (or even get to the playoffs consistently), and part of that is constant injuries. Also a 1st ballot HOFer, and he’s one of the more underrated QBs in the league over the last five years. Russell Wilson -- This guy is a magician. He makes “video game” plays all the time, must be one of the most frustrating QBs for pass rushers because of mobility and escapability, still has the ability to beat defenses with his arm, stays within himself, takes care of the ball, is efficient and highly productive, and still makes ridiculous plays down the field, and despite taking a lot of hits and being smaller, has never missed a game in 6 years. I think he's probably underrated. Matt Ryan -- Hit a peak two years ago that rightfully earned him MVP, and if not for a total team meltdown he had a SB in his pocket. That year might prove to be an aberration, but even in previous years he’s been a reliable performer, with a bad team. He’s a no-doubt top ten QB, and has proven he has the ability to perform on an elite level. Injured Nobles -- These two belong in the previous category, but are coming back from serious injuries and will have to show that they are still capable of changing the game for their teams. I don’t have any serious doubt that they will. Andrew Luck -- When healthy, he can carry a bad team to the playoffs, and has the playmaking ability to beat virtually any team on any given Sunday. He’s been slowed by injuries the last three years but assuming he’s back to his old self, he will continue to be a terror for opponents. He has all the physical tools needed to dominate the league for the foreseeable future, and if the new regime does what they say they’re going to do, we might see even more from Luck than we saw in his early years. Carson Wentz -- He was on fire most of the year, going from promising rookie to likely MVP in one season, and had elite efficiency along the way. He also has exceptional mobility and movement in the pocket, and it looks like the sky’s the limit for him once he’s back on the field. He’s also playing for a really smart coaching staff. I had him ahead of Luck because his 2017 was outstanding and because he plays with a speed that Luck never did, but I decided to swap them because Luck has a longer track record. Barons -- There’s some upside in this group, and then others who are established and probably are what they are; former peak territory for players like Flacco, Tannehill, etc, who had flashes and even accomplishments, but never took the next step. This group can go either way. Cam Newton -- This guy has a ton of overall ability, and produces with his arm and legs. He’s not as well-rounded and complete a passer as others in this category, and his passing efficiency will probably never be impressive, but he makes lots of plays and has insane ability, which earned him an MVP. Kirk Cousins -- He has refined his raw ability as a passer, if not a playmaker, and has probably overachieved the last couple years, and now has to play with a new team and coaching staff. I wouldn’t be surprised if he doesn’t produce like has previously, but his ability to run a good offense is pretty well proven. Matthew Stafford -- Has maybe stalled out, shown he can put up numbers but his teams don’t win games, can’t grab the division, always lose to better teams, can’t beat the Packers, etc. He’s an above average passer and a decent playmaker, but there’s no “It” factor with him. Derek Carr -- I think he has the goods, and though he’s not the most physically impressive QB, he is a playmaker and a leader. He’s dealt with bad offensive coaching (why’d they fire Musgrave?) and injuries, but can hopefully get back to the near-MVP status he was approaching two years ago. Hopefully Gruden doesn’t ruin him. Alex Smith -- Has mostly been your prototypical game manager; he will not hurt you with turnovers, but he may hold your offense back with his unwillingness to take a chance down the field, and will be with a new staff that probably won’t encourage him to be more of a playmaker. Surprisingly he was the most effective deep passer last season, and still just barely cracked 4k for the first time in his entire career. We’ve most likely seen his best, and smart money says he falls off moving forward, but Jay Gruden did a good job with Cousins, so maybe he’ll be a good fit for Smith also. Nick Foles Tier Nick Foles -- At this point he has proven his ability to lead a team, run an offense efficiently and put up points, even on the biggest stage, where he was outstanding. He was on the brink of retirement two years ago and is now SB MVP as a backup QB. He will likely be a backup again this season. He probably won’t have the chance to prove whether he is capable of being a starter before 2019, because the Eagles are smart and won’t trade him. I’d rather have him right now than anyone below him on this list. Young Barons -- These players have shown special ability, and could eventually be Nobles, but it’s still too early to tell. I think they have obvious flaws that they may or may not overcome; they need good coaching and development, otherwise they will not reach their potential. Jameis Winston -- He has obvious off field issues that go back several years, and that might cost him his job at some point. On the field, he turns the ball over too much and makes stupid mistakes, has questionable maturity and leadership. He has the talent to be an eventual MVP candidate, but he also has the potential to flame out over the next six months. Marcus Mariota -- Still developing as a pro passer, but has high level ability with his arm, and can shred an undisciplined defense with his legs. He has probably been handcuffed by conservative coaching, but this year will be critical for him to show whether he’s going to be a tease or a stud. Dak Prescott -- Probably an overachiever as an early starter, I doubt that he’ll ever be a dominant pro passer but has just enough playmaking to be a potential disruptor, and his dual threat ability gives him a boost. He can thrive if his team is smart with him. Jared Goff -- This guy was left for dead a year ago, but once he was rescued from Jeff Fisher and paired with a smart offensive coach, it didn’t take long (Week 1, to be exact, though the Colts helped with that) for him to look like he might wind up being a really good QB, ala Matt Ryan; I think he’ll probably be more Alex Smith while Wentz has more potential to be Aaron Rodgers, but Goff has an advantage over Smith since he won’t (likely) have 5 different playcallers in his first 6 years. He also wound up being the 9th best deep passer in the league last year, so his college strength as a deep passer appears to have been unlocked by Sean McVay, and that might be the key to his pro career. And though everyone has him behind Wentz, he had a better completion %, int %, adjusted yards/attempt and essentially same passer rating as Wentz. Goff might be better than the 7 guys directly in front of him as early as this season. Let's stop writing off young QBs so quickly, and let's make sure they have good coaches. Starting QB, Esquire -- We’ve seen what these guys can do, and they have either not played near their peak recently, or are wildly inconsistent, and yet they own 3 SB MVP awards, between them, showing that even an unimpressive QB can get hot long enough for your team to win a SB. There’s a legit chance that none of these five guys are starting by the end of this season. Eli Manning -- Has had a great career, especially for an above average QB with a consistently inconsistent track record, and he’s probably done at this point. Joe Flacco -- Had a nice run and got a SB and a fat contract, but is not good enough to carry his team and never has been, and the Ravens seem like they’re ready for the next guy. He might not be on the team in 2019. Andy Dalton -- The poster boy for QB purgatory, when you have a youngish passer with some ability but he never performs at more than an above average level, and even then it’s only for a couple weeks at a time. It’s been seven years now, we can say for sure he’s not a playmaker, and he plays horribly in the playoffs. Sadly, his coaching staff isn’t capable of maximizing anyone, much less an average QB (LOL at the idea that he would have saved Polian’s job in 2011). Ryan Tannehill -- Another middle of the road guy that can’t elevate his team, and he doesn’t even have the playoff appearances that Dalton does. Not a bad QB at all, but you can’t build your offense around him, and sadly, it seems like his teammates don’t like or respect him. He’s had a decent career and made a lot of money for a former hybrid QB/receiver, but it’s hard to see the Dolphins paying him another $19m in 2019. Veteran Journeymen -- A group of QBs that actually are pretty good, or have played well at times in the past, but either can’t stay healthy or can’t hold the starting job very long. Sam Bradford -- Word is he got injured thinking about training camp, but is and always has been a talented passer. At this point, he’s probably just keeping the seat warm for Rosen, who is like him in being a talented passer who probably can’t stay healthy. Case Keenum -- Had a good year but couldn’t keep his job because of his obvious limitations. He probably has no real competition in Denver, but they have not and likely will not commit to him beyond this season, unless he has a great year. Teddy Bridgewater -- It’s weird to call him a journeyman at this point, but that’s partly a projection, given his ability and the uncertainty that he’ll ever fully recover. He’s probably more likely to be traded during camp than to be the Jets starter in Week 8; Darnold is the future there. Peasants -- The Blake Bortles Tier Blake Bortles -- He was actually impressive late last season, he hasn’t had great coaching for the most part, and he showed some Eli-like ability in the playoffs last year, but there’s been a lot of bad and he’s just a placeholder until they find someone better. I think there’s still a 1% chance he turns into a quality starter that a good team can win with, and the Jags are spending at least $26.5m to play out that very small chance. Tyrod Taylor -- Takes care of the ball and can make plays with his legs, but there’s not a lot of potential for him to be a long term starter. He was benched for no good reason last season, bounced back to help the team break a generation-long playoff drought, and then rewarded by being traded to the Browns, but no one cried for him. And the Bills did okay; pick #65 isn’t a bad return for an average QB, and they drafted a potential franchise QB in Josh Allen. Jacoby Brissett -- Early word is he looks good in Reich’s offense -- and that’s encouraging because imagine what that means for Luck -- but he is a questionable NFL passer, not a quick decision maker, and struggles with accuracy. No doubt he’s an admirable teammate, great worker, exactly what you want as a backup for a veteran QB, and maybe can get a chance as a starter at some point in the future, but right now he is not a top 32 QB in the NFL, IMO. I’m fine with him as a spot starter for now. Josh McCown -- He’s had some decent statistical performances, but over 5 seasons worth of starts it’s proven that when he plays, his team loses. He’ll be 39 when the season starts, probably great for your QB room, but it’s interesting that they’d give him $10m for a chance to start for a brief period while Darnold is groomed, and he might be their third best QB anyway. AJ McCarron -- He’ll be in a 3-way competition with Nathan Peterman -- who threw 5 picks in one half last year -- and Josh Allen, a raw Division II passer who only completed 56% of his college passes. And like McCown, McCarron is probably the #3 guy. Trevor Siemian -- He was given the job in Denver, completely bombed, and will probably never be a starter again. He’ll make a decent backup for Cousins in Minnesota. Polls Still Open -- This group has too few games and starts for me to rank them against the rest of the league, but almost all of them have a serious shot at being Pro Bowlers. Deshaun Watson -- He looked simply amazing in his half a season, and he might be the next big thing, which is exciting in a division that’s been plagued with bad QB play for a long time (outside of the Colts). Jimmy Garappolo -- He eventually took over for a bad team and went 5-0, and then got PAID. He might be next year’s Carson Wentz, and despite being undefeated as a starter, he still doesn’t have enough games played to really know who or what he is. Mitchell Trubisky -- Had decent debut, with some nice performances as the year went on, and now thankfully has been rescued from another overly conservative, old school head coach who doesn’t know how to handle a young QB. He might be able to take off with Nagy, who is very unproven himself, but comes highly recommended. Patrick Mahomes -- The Chiefs saw one week of him and decided he could have Alex Smith’s job, mostly because he has a monster arm and serious playmaking ability, and he played like a seasoned pro in a meaningless Week 17 game. There’s considerable refinement work ahead, but things look good, and Andy Reid is good with QBs. Nathan Peterman -- He has some talent (had some nice games in college), and might win the Buffalo job early in the year, but he’s probably not going to be a quality starter at any point. Newcomers, in draft order -- first rounders only Baker Mayfield -- There are big questions about his pro ability and fit, and he went to the most questionable team in the league. But now that they have a real front office (and it’s legit impressive, IMO) and have stuck with a coach for more than two seasons who happens to have an offensive background, maybe they can finally develop a QB who actually has some talent. I don’t believe he has the ability to be a top notch pro QB, but he could be an above average starter for a few years, which is a big improvement for the Browns. Sam Darnold -- IMO the safest QB in the draft, and while I think the Jets are silly to pay $15m to two veteran backups, I think they’re smart to create a buffer between the field and their 20 year old rookie who is prone to turn the ball over. They also have a reputable offensive brain trust with Bates/Dennison, who can hopefully develop Darnold and get him ready to take the job -- and it might come sooner than it really should -- but he has the ability to be a Noble-level QB. Josh Allen -- I think he has a near-fatal flaw with accuracy against lower level competition, but the physical tools are there and he can be an elite-level playmaker, as long as he can develop fundamentally. Sadly, I think his offensive coaching staff is an ill fit (journeyman coordinator with no real NFL success as a playcaller, no proven QB guru on the entire staff), and his head coach has a defensive background, so his prospects to be developed as a pro passer aren’t high, IMO. Weirdly would have been a great fit for the Browns, I think. Josh Rosen -- The most talented passer this year, but has injury issues and questions about coachability; he might have been humbled by dropping in the draft. Even though the head coach is a defensive guy, they probably have the right offensive staff for him. I’ve been a Mike McCoy fan for over five years and he probably isn’t going anywhere any time soon, so Rosen will be developed by a coach who has experience with a wide variety of high profile and experienced QBs. And the QB coach is a former first round pick who spent a decade in the league and is still young enough to relate to Rosen’s millennial point of view, and who also won’t be going anywhere. With Bradford and Glennon in the room, he has a lot of veteran perspective to keep him in check. I think he can be a high level QB if he stays on it. Lamar Jackson -- If they handle him right, he could be RG3 without the drama and ego, which is an acceptable starting QB for a few years, with the potential to wreck defenses when they make mistakes. I am not thrilled with his passing ability in the pocket against defenses that don’t leave receivers open. I’m also not a fan of the Ravens offensive coaching staff, starting with Marty Mornhingweg.

  12. 50-32...….It should happen.... ...we get 4 games with the Cavs....should be all wins..unless their roster changes... we were 1-3 against Detroit and that may change.... Unless Im just being negative..I dont see the Knicks or Charlotte getting better. Bulls made some nice choices..but I think we go 3-1 on them.. ….you are right....if Boston brings back Marcus Smart,....we'll be lucky to get a game off them.. Toronto is bringing back the same team...and the 76ers lost some shooters. We played much of last year with 8 guys...now we have a true 'second 5' ..we're not as vulnerable to injuries as we were........ .I wish the season began next week!

  13. Yeah I see us winning 50 games with relatively Good health and finishing 4th in the East. I think in reality we may be the 2nd best team in the East though. Toronto and Philly will probably have a better record in the Regular Season winning around 55 or so but we are a team built for the Playoffs. What I mean by that is, we have the overall Guard play and the Centers that can play Defense. I just like our Chemistry better than what Toronto and Philly has. Boston is going to be a Bear!

After a 3rd down completion to Fleener...I was hoping they would eat the clock and keeping moving the ball, but then this happened. You can hear the noise from the original broadcast...but it doesn't do it justice..the place was electric when that happened.

  20. That’s my thought whenever someone talks up Cain. We passed him up for Fountain in the 5th, and that should tell you a lot about their initial relative placement in the WR hierarchy. I was a big fan of Fountain this draft season, and I see him as a superion prospect to Cain. Of course, now I’m both payers’ biggest fan!

  21. They should be and they are the favorites. But I think they take a significant step back. I don't think the defensive line will be as good, and I think a team with weak QBing is more likely to lose close games than win them, so I see a regression to the mean this season. The latest over/under I saw for them was 9 wins, and I'd take the under.

  25. Expectations are set up based on pre-tournament form that they have displayed. But then, one of the pre-tournament favorites Germany crashed and burned in the group stages. The 20 World Cup tournaments have been won by eight national teams. Brazil have won five times, and they are the only team to have played in every tournament. The other World Cup winners are Germany and Italy, with four titles each; Argentina and inaugural winner Uruguay, with two titles each; and England, France, and Spain, with one title each. However, the last 8 World Cups have seen 6 different winners, with only Brazil and Germany winning twice. So the tide could be changing with quality depth, IMO. If England, Croatia or Belgium win, it would make 7 different winners in the last 9 World Cups.

  27. There is also a defender that missed Brazil's game that was a key part of their D doing well so far: https://sports.yahoo.com/world-cups-stupidest-rule-doomed-brazil-belgium-215449020.html Belgium just has more firepower with all their best players being one of the best in the English Premier League. That is why they are called the golden generation. It is now or never for Belgium, and that is how they are playing. Brazil does not have the quality depth that Belgium has, kind of like the Colts under Polian, an injury to a key player and they cannot go far in the playoffs.

  44. Earlier in the post, and in other posts, someone compared our WR group and our LB group. as having questions........ There is still much to be done, and still much to prove, but my "gut" tells me we will be ok in the WR group..... not the best.... but able to compete. Hilton is a known, pro bowl level talent. When Rogers has been healthy, he has shown flashes of being a good second option at WR, From highlights, while at Washington, Ryan Grant has shown some flashes of being a good second option at WR. Deon Cain looked like a late first round pick when he had a decent QB throwing to him. Ishmail and Fountain are clearly both talented and produced at a high level in College 2-3 of these guys (outside of Hilton) should shine, and make the team and man the spot accross from Hilton. I think we will see many 2 TE sets, (one split out) as well as our new RB, Hines also lining up in the slot I think that there are obvious questions, but there is clearly talent available at the WR spot on this team. HOWEVER I have MUCH less trust in the LBs I feel that we somewhat limping into the season with the LB team that we have Counting on late round drafted rookies and very low level UDFA to start and play well is risky at best Leonard, (not signed) should get WSLB........ the balance of people we currently have listed at LB, probably couldnt even make the team for most of the NFL squads. I truly love the new attitude of this coaching staff and front office........ I love how much this team (at least on paper) has improved. I hope they move Simon back to LB (SSLB..yeah, I said this before). I hope they bring in another MLB to compete. (and maybe, just maybe a CB) Deano .

  45. Mathis and Reggie are priceless for the growth of this young team, imo. They have full respect in Indy. Great role models off the field too. Makes me feel like they are still on the team. now if we could get Manning to be a QB coach........ ( )

  46. I love Robert man... The guy looks like he could still get on a football field. The rook is in great hands if he's got the drive.

  47. Way too premature to try to nail down projected figures, but assuming the Colts don't take on anymore salary this year, they'll have $45m+ to rollover to 2019 (assuming prorations for midseason pickups, IR slots, incentives hit, etc.). OTC projects $63m cap space going into next season (based on today's roster, which will change between now and March when the cap is set). Add this year's rollover to next year's cap space, and the Colts should be around $100m under the 2019 cap by the time the league year starts. Now if you start looking at roster mechanics, and thinking about guys like John Simon, Robert Turbin, etc., who might not even make the 2018 roster, there's potential for even more cap space next year.

  48. Texans line is awful but I think all four teams have a legit shot to win the division this year.
