  8. He had 5 1000 yard seasons after the injury. But I agree, he wasn't the same. His yards were more a product of the offense. Still one of my favorite Colts. I'm glad they gave him a ring.

  9. They certainly are, and sometimes a quarterback can do enough to win, but doesn’t because one or more of their teammates fail at a crucial time – a good example of this is Superbowl XXV in which Jim Kelly had the Bills poised to win, but Scott Norwood’s 48 yard field goal attempt sailed wide right and Buffalo lost by a single point.

  10. This doesn't even make sense. No offense, but if they do indeed know what they have in Brissett, which even while being injured during the season is about a .500 QB.......why in hell would they use a rookie and possibly sink the season?

"The big part of Philip being here is Anthony Castonzo. Quenton Nelson," Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni said in a conference call Monday, referring to the Colts offensive line (via NFL.com). "Ryan Kelly. Braden Smith. Mark Glowinski. Those guys are studs" "That's something that he just kept mentioning after we signed him of how valuable

  16. Yeah, I didn't phrase that correctly. I should have said I had higher expectations for him after 2018. We all knew he was a good blocker, but I expected him to be used more as a receiver in 19. Some of that was due to the emphasis to run the ball. This is probably old news to most of you, but I think I just realized it: None of the TE's on our roster were drafted. This is not to say that Doyle and Burton haven't had really good careers, I just find it odd.

  17. I guess it would make sense if you are trying to make a team drafting after the Colts to trade up and draft Love(i.e. one less team that could take a player we like). This doesn't make sense for the teams ahead of us though and it doesn't make sense with this much of an elaborate scheme(pretending to be interested in him for so long). But yeah... IMO it wasn't a smoke screen. It was a regular interest in a player a team was doing their due diligence on.

  18. Congrats to him. Something Ballard said during the press-conference - he said they were trying to trade up for him for about 30 minutes before he ultimately fell down to us. This sounds very similar to what they did with Khari Willis last year so... I guess my point is... it's possible they have higher hopes for him than what most 5th rounders would usually inspire... it's also possible he's closer to being ready to play than most people would assume.

  19. To keep social distancing in a stadium the capacity would need to be much smaller than 25% surely? People behind and in front of you not just at the side. And that's even ignoring the logistics of crowding as you get in, come out and how people move around the stadium for bathrooms and concessions. Think it's a logistical nightmare!

  20. That’s a pretty good argument for Philip, who hasn’t missed a start in 14 years & counting, and played in the 2007 AFC Championship game with a torn ACL.

  22. Weird how it ended in the damp squid of the Ravens playoff loss. Reggie Wayne was a man on fire vs the Packers, probably the best game of his career, and IIRC got fined for wearing gloves supporting Chuck. Was a real shame that Ballard's career got cut short by that Achilles tear, I felt he could have been a steady rotational RB,

  23. That was truly house money that year!!! From the Chuckstrong game vs the Packers to Vick Ballard's dive TD to the last second comeback vs Detroit Lions, I really took that pesky 2012 squad for granted, looking back.

  25. I mean honestly when did Luck really have much of a run game? With Vick Ballard his rookie year and then in 2018. Everyone always just stacked the boxes and doubled T.Y. It would be scary to see what he would do with this run game o-line and receiving group

  28. The name that I haven't seen on this thread is Matt Eberflus. I think Ballard listens to him, and I suspect he's a big reason Hooker didn't get the 5th yr, as Ballard is filling the D with sound-tackling, effort guys that Eberflus loves, like Buckner. "I think he (DeForest Buckner) played with the best effort on the D-line, which really shows on tape when you see somebody that big sprinting to the ball every play and making those tackles downfield"- Nick Bosa on how much he'll miss DB. Buckner epitomizes what Eberflus wants, no "loafs." Hooker has range and can make j

  30. I really appreciate this DC as he has brought the Colts to where the Defense is "Decent" for the first couple of years. Now with added talent, I believe Eberflus will shine this upcoming year. I really wanted DC Wade Phillips from the onset. But Eberflus has held his own, all things considered.

  32. Fitz = a No for me, see this is why eye test is important and winning is real important as well as stats. Everything just can't be based off of stats.

  34. We have a hell of a qb room this year. Rivers is a future hall of fame qb, Jacoby is an average-ish starter, Eason is suppose to be future, and according to some fans Kelly is the second coming! It’s going to be interesting to see how all this plays out!

  35. I’m sure by keep it simple that he literally meant to run the high school version of this D. I bet they don’t disguise coverage or even come out of their base D one time this year... A average QB will to, what’s your point? You should listen to the interview instead turning a 10-15 word tweet into a 10,000 word essay about how he envisions the D this year and assuming the worst. I feel confident in saying that Eburflus is in touch with the capabilities of his D, how it needs to function in order to win games, and that you don’t want great QB’s, or any QB, to know what the D is do

  36. A great QB is going to pick a team apart if they know what your going to do before the ball is snapped.

  37. Baseball owners have voted to start the season this year on July 1st. What do you all think? I'm looking forward to some semblance of normalcy. So, I welcome that but I also want players and fans to be safe. I hope we can find a good balance.

  39. The title of the article is misleading. This isn't welfare fraud as we think of it It is serious government corruption and embezzling by political appointees https://apnews.com/158043fed97ba30a574434fb6c0f24da Why Favre would choose to be involved is beyond me

  40. It turned out the way I had hoped. He just loaded the team up with a couple of stars and his project QB came in the 4th round. Eason will have the better surrounding talent and FO than Love imo.

  41. - They will play all 16 games - They will win some, they will lose some - Chris Ballard will once again prove he is indeed the % - No matter how good the season turns out there will still be people here who will complain - The sun will still rise and the sun will still set each day

  42. If anything, if I was another team and the Colts really did invest this much time in him and traded out of 13th and then never considered trading back into 1st round when he slipped, I would have questions. Like what did they see or hear from him that made them turn. We will never know.

  45. I think we're putting a lot of faith in this being over quickly. There are 7 coronavirus in the same family as covid-19. Four cause the common cold, plus MERS and SARS. We have no cure for any of them. We've had HIV (another virus obviously) for nearly 60 years and spent half a trillion dollars on it. No vaccine. I know we have to be positive but given those two medical outlooks why would this be over in time for the football season?
