  3. It appears he hasn’t been released yet. They received a couple of calls inquiring about trading for him. So now it’s wait and see what happens next. I would put in a claim for sure.

  5. Right. DC superhero. I'm so conflicted as a mod, because I have to wonder if this thread ever was on topic and just belongs in Misc?

  6. I almost can see a two bye season coming up... It would make sense, make the union, and networks happy. Extend the season by a week without adding a game....

  7. Discussed a lot in many other threads already... But, IMO, worth discussing if the topic if it's about Indy's willingness to roll the dice on injuries in general. Fisher - big gamble on a huge position of need. Early schedule could be ugly if Tevi has to start the first month. Huge gamble. Dayo - good value in the 2nd. Young and should heal. It's a long term play, one that I'm not sure we should have taken given other needs. Good gamble. Mack - pretty easy decision IMO. Cheap, and short term. Any production will be great. Good loyalty sign to se

  8. I think what it boils down to, is that there is a significant number of teams that get to enjoy that advantage of being rested over a team that is not. While the Colts have not enjoyed that benefit. Essentially, the other teams in our division and conference could get +1 for a better % chance of winning their game off a bye. That probably reads even more confusing, and if so I apologize. It's May, which in teaching terms means my mind is quite nearly a puddle on the floor.

  9. Pro days replaced the combine. NFL established guidelines and some funding I believe. Combine was limited to medicals. Measurables are easy for most players, but Dayo's injury prohibited him from the team's pro day. BTW, Dayo's pre injury 40 was 4.7. Not great, but he's bigger, and he's more about power than KP. Here's KP's RAS

  11. Thanks for that. I'll visit one time. I did attend a football game in Maryland where the Washington team plays. It was in 2016, Vikes were playing against Washington. There seemed to be a sea of purple there. Lol. The folks there were very nice.

  13. Yes…I’ve been there several times. It’s a really nice ballpark. Tucked into downtown Baltimore down by the Harbor. The water and B&O Warehouse form an iconic backdrop behind the outfield wall. If you ever go you should check out Boog’s Barbecue. Named after famous Orioles 1st baseman Boog Powell. Os fans are pretty welcoming. We get lots of Yankees and Red Sox fans in whenever they come into town. During the down years when attendance is low… they sometimes take over the stadium which is annoying.

  15. Bucs yes, IDK about the Pats. Really depends on their record at the time (assumes you're buying second hand market). I think there are two different things. There's weird performance struggles vs certain teams (curses lol), and just super dumb game plans. The 2020 Jax game and 2019 Miami game were easily the later. We absolutely did the opposite of what simple stats would tell you to do.

  16. Seahawks, Rams, and Bucs are the best home games. But Bucs are on Thanksgiving weekend. My fav road games would be either FL game, or SF. MNF vs Balt would be fun too. I like AZ but you don't like that week. Home vs Pats would also be fun. I really really want to beat both the Bucs and Pats this year.

  17. I've always thought the NFL could be more structured in their schedule. I'd love to see "division" weeks where all teams play intra division games. Could do the same with cross conference and inter-division games. The whole negated bye week thing doesn't really bother me. It's not a true disadvantage, and more a lack of advantage. Regardless, it's still should be applied equally, which it isn't. I'm more bothered by travel around short weeks, especially if it's to W Coast destinations (or VV).

  18. at Baltimore on MNF The losses I originally voted on are at Titans at Ravens at Bills at Cardinals at Jags But I've changed my vote on at Titans to a W thus far in my deep dive. Toss up though. At Jags could be changed to a W too, but we all know our history vs Jax.... lol

  19. I can see the Colts being as high as two, but also failing to make the playoffs altogether. I'm deep diving the schedule now, and through the first 6 games. First 5 are tough, last 4 are easy, middle is up and down. If we do well early, the sky could be the limit. Or we could tank from there. Wentz, Fisher, Campbell, and our D stepping up or back are all major narratives. I could see both the Bills and Baltimore being as high as 2 or as low as 7. Patriots added a lot. All depends on QB for them. If QB works out, we know they'll run and play D well. Ju

  20. I've looked pretty deep at the roster in Philly over his tenure there. Aside from having a good OL until 2020, Philly's roster just wasn't that great. WRs were pretty meh IMO. Some decent names, but they just weren't consistent and didn't produce like other WRs in the league. Ertz led them in yardage just about every year. Sure he's great, but when a TE is your leader every year, that says something... They never really had a dominant running game or RB. Decent rushing totals a few years, but the numbers were better than reality. Not sure they had a 1000 yard or go-to RB in all the years Wentz

  23. I have always thought the plan and the hope was that he recovers and we sign him to a long term deal. He is only 30 years old. Makes perfect sense to me. Ballard will find a way to make it work. Right now he wants him to get back to his old self. He’s just praying that happens. My advice is don’t fall in love with any player. They are the means to an end. There is no guarantee they will always be with us. The players and the teams know the environment they are playing under. That’s just the way it is.

  24. All rookie contracts are slotted. There’s little negotiation to a slotted salary. You can fudge a little on some minor points, but otherwise it is what it is. Odds are, the negotiation is over offset language. That’s the most common issue.

  25. I would agree, mostly from what I heard is the week 3 will still be 2 weeks out from the season, not the Thursday before

  29. People here don’t complain about the process, because people here don’t know the process. Almost no one here does. People here complain about the outcome, especially if it disagrees with their opinion. So, for example, people here hated LaRaven Clark. A few seasons back, Clarke had to play a fair amount for the Colts in the first month. PFF gave him a passing grade, I think in the 60’s after the first quarter. People here went nuts. The team was struggling and Clarke was the designated person to blame. By the end of the season, Clarke’s grade was lower, but that

  30. Y'know, somehow I missed that. I grew up reading comic books in the 60's and I always liked Marvel more than DC mags. My father had hundreds not them - Spidey, Daredevil, Silver Surfer, Sgt. Fury, and a bunch more.. I learned to read by comic books, not by English class novels, haha.

  31. I took a deeper look at how we've done over the past 10 seasons. There have been 5 negated BYEs with a sixth coming this season. Seems to be a mixed bag. Overall we went 7-3 in the week after our BYE. Two of those 3 losses were after a negated BYE. Year Week Situation Outcome 2011 12 Panthers played on Sun in week 11 L27-19 2012 5 Packers played on Sun in week 4 W30-27 2013 9 Houston also had bye in week 8 W27-24 2014 11 NE also had a bye in week 10 L42-

  32. There are a lot of us purist (nerds) out there who are very upset with saying Superman is a Marvel superhero. You can tell it's the off season by how far this thread has gone off the rails - I love it!

  33. I posted some thoughts on PFF a few days ago, link below. I don't dislike them at all, but I think their work and its value is misrepresented quite often.

  34. Apparently it means that after your bye, you’re playing a team that also came off a bye. Meaning you don’t have an advantage like some other teams do. I really don’t think players and coaches care about the other team. They just happy for their bye.

  37. Is that in human years or in superhero years? Superman has been around since 1930's and is still able to kick serious butt when he needs to. Wheel this boy back on the field if he still has some juice!

  38. It never reached Rocky Horror in cult status. But it was so campy it was one of those midnight movies they'd show at colleges, etc. Maybe more of a favorite for those who partook of some medicinal herbs?

  41. How are the Vikings playing the Chargers? I thought we (Vikes) were playing the AFC North. We start the year at Cincy, I believe. It must be that 17th game on the schedule that has us playing a team I was not expecting us to play. Now I have to find the Poptart they associate with the Vikes.

  42. Unlikely, but it wouldn’t be the first time he’s the first QB to do something. Wentz’s career has been unprecedented to this point. Check out this article, very interesting read. https://www.nbcsports.com/philadelphia/eagles/10-crazy-stats-remember-carson-wentz

  44. Yes, and if a few of those down hill guys blitz, the coverage by the other downhill guys would suffer even more. Our defensive personnel is not that good and it limits what the coaches can do. They have to protect weaknesses too much to let loose the aggressiveness.. JMO.

  46. Thank you. I did not see it when it happened but this morning, I saw something about the Mets winning 3-2. I have to check out what happened. Means looks like a keeper. I have never visited Camden Yards. I hear that it is still among the best baseball parks. I wish to visit one day. Have you been there? @PuntersArePeopleToo I know you have been to many. I believe that you wrote that you have been there. Am I remembering correctly?

  47. Random thoughts: How many even make the team? How many get traded? How many get injured? What's the strength of the FA market next year? What's the strength of the Draft next year? Comp Picks. 'Better than expected' doesn't mean irreplaceable. There's a price to be paid for having a better roster. It'll work itself out.
