  1. What is driving you to write all these disparaging comments? It almost seems personal. He does not play for your team. He has not committed a crime. What is it?

  2. I think we should re-run the 4 round mock in a few weeks after FA has started. This mock was already thrown off by the Wentz trade.

  3. Doug... these anti-Watson rants have gone from bad to worse. Other posters here have noted you make it sound personal. You have mischaracterized most everything that has happened. Watson has a lot of support around the NFL. I’d say far more support than dont. I don’t pretend to know how this is going to finish? But I hope you can lower the temperature here... I don’t think it’s helpful. Just my two cents...

  4. There is nothing wrong with what you wrote. Early on in the thread, I too wrote that Watson should honor his contract. This is not the same as Doug's comments. Doug is making a lot of personal attacks against a player. And he is going on and on and on. It is overkill.

  5. Get off it already. Godwin had 2 rec 9yds in the Super Bowl. Averaged 4rec under 60yds a game in his 4 playoff games, with a catch percentage the same as Marcus Johnson had for the Colts this year. He was one of the last reasons why TB won the Super Bowl. Maybe we should trade Q for Joe Haeg since he was on the super bowl winning team. Scotty Miller perhaps, since its a WR value discussion.(little dramatic I know, but look where you've taken this subject) Acting like this is all cliche thoughts of a homer fan and his teams players. Has nothing t

  8. if Mac Jones is REALLY moving up like some say, that's 5 Round One QBs. There are at least 4-5 sure-fire WRs (including Pitts, who IMO is more of an over-sized WR than a true TE), 3 probable Round One CBs, possibly as many as 5 DEs, 3-4 LBs and likely one DT. And at least 3 OTs (4 if you include Jenkins) and 1-2 OGs. So it's certainly possible someone CB really likes will still be there at #21.

  9. I see you are dug in on this and not listening to anyone else. That was only one factor, not the end all be all. I don't know why you are linking details of his contract. Teams cut and trade those whenever they want, and players can request trades, sit out or retire. Several other QBs were traded this offseason too. He will probably never apologize because the team doesn't deserve one, they are horribly ran organization and other players are jumping ship too.

  10. Before this wraps up I wanna say thank you to @chad72for an outstanding mock draft commissioner this year. He did an awesome job! And thank you to all those who helped as co-commissioners and participants as GM a well. Hope you all enjoyed it. Now it’s time to focus on FA in Real life and then the draft. My favorite part of the offseason!

  12. Here's a statistical analysis for return on investment of our draft picks done by PFF: https://www.pff.com/news/nfl-historical-draft-success-for-all-32-nfl-teams The analysis is based on PFF's WAR metric(wins above replacement). I won't quote the whole thing, but if you are interested, it's worth checking out the whole article with all explanations about their graphs. I will just post the main graphs with what they show... First... Total WAR added by those 4 classes since 2017: Colts are at no. 11 in the league and the Chiefs a

  13. So, Daniel Jeremiah is out with his second version of his top-50 prospects. It's an interesting list. You'll agree with some, not agree with others. DJ was an NFL scout for 9 years, I respect his eye for talent. I always recommend reading his actual write-ups on players, don't just look at the rankings. By reading his reviews, you get the feel for how an NFL scout sees and thinks. What are the traits they're looking for? And remember, everyone sees the same thing differently. In every draft, once you get past the top-10 or 15 or so, every team

  16. 21? I haven’t seen any mock with Pitts below 11. 21?!? Really? Seriously? Wow! Was this mock done by Popular Mechanics? Maybe Field ‘n’ Stream? Certainly not football people?! Maybe they were either throwing darts or picking names blindly out of a hat? I like out of the box thinking as much as anyone, but I don’t want to live in Crazytown! I wouldn’t sign my name to a mock like that.

  18. Interesting read @stitches, I like how they said the Nelson pick was as good as it gets, but because of positional value, the ceiling for a generational guard is only the 93rd percentile. Then later on, point out that it's really all just manipulation of numbers, and that it could be great coaching/scheme/veteran leadership that is taking average picks from a GM and making them look like great picks when the system works. Like those things are just afterthoughts when considering the success of a TEAM sport... The most interesting thing was that Loomis has been the Sa

  19. I don’t care what formation we run. I would like to see the Carson Wentz that comes to the line and audibles plays left and right to confuse the defense. I’m not sure if he changed plays at all during that MVP run year he had with Philly but that’s what I want to see!

  23. This. I listed the WR's/TE's that I would consider trading Q or Leonard for being: -Diggs, Hopkins, Adams, and Kelce. That is 4 but after that I have to stop. I even listed 4 @stitches. No way Godwin or Ridley makes my list and both those guys are good to very good but Q and Leonard are arguably the best at their position. I can make a strong case that Mike Evans (his teammate) is better than Godwin, his stats were better. I will tell you a WR I would love to have is Robinson via Free Agency, he is a beast.

  24. Also for the record I said Godwin was a good WR as well. The fact is his career avg/season to this point, is very middle of the pack, isn't to debatable. It's facts. No one is talking like he is a scrub, we are saying he isn't more valuable than Q/DL combined and wouldn't trade either for him. He has had 1 really good season, 2 average seasons and a rookie season comparable to Pittman Jr's rookie year. Actually Pittman's rookie year was better and he played 3 less games than Godwin.

  25. You knocked it out of the park and named the exact players I was thinking of. One of the DL and Rock need to start playing as average starters. I think Okereke does play a fair amount and I would have to check and see how his performance was last year before I can say. We don’t need them to be stars but they need to be capable starters.

  27. I think Wentz will be good but it make take some time. Reich fixing Wentz could easily take more than one season. The trade looks like at least a 2 year deal so if we go 8-8 next season hopefully we go 11-5 the next. I hope the Colts fan base is patient with him.

  28. It’s okay to make that statement, I see what your saying. The problem is it’s unclear how that statement relates to the topic we’ve been discussing on this thread. Were you saying that just to say it without implying anything? Or was it meant to mean that Wentz is a more desirable prospect than either Peyton or Andrew? Context is important.

  29. I could be wrong on this, but I believe Rodgers is listed at 5’10”. Same as Kenny Moore. I’ve never seen him referenced as 5’8” before. Just wanted to clarify. As to everything else, carry on... sorry to interrupt.

  30. I keep seeing him mocked in the 2nd, but it just doesn't make sense to me. It could just be that its a very deep OT draft, but he's a solid plug and play LT. Those don't fall but so far. I can honestly see a run on OT's and him going in the mid-late 1st.

  32. If that's the case, throw these graphs in the garbage bin. A guy who has (1) 1,000yd season and (0) 10td seasons, in 4 years, is more valuable than 2 multi time All Pros combined.

  33. There is a difference between whining and legitimate complaints. Looks like you are siding with the team no matter what. Refusing to trade him is probably the wrong move here, they will be better on the field if they just do it. He's not coming back

  37. Am I reading you correctly? You think Darrisaw (who I love) going before Sewell is NOT a big shocker? I’m hoping you’re being sarcastic and it’s just lost on me... I’ll put it this way... there is a Darrisaw level OT in every draft, year in and year out. A very good player. But there is a Sewell level OT that comes along once every 10-20 years. He’s the Quenton Nelson of tackles. Rare, special. Possible future Hall of Famer. Darrisaw going before Sewell would be a huge shocker.

  38. The 2006 team was the greatest and it is not even a debate. They went 10-0 at home including the playoffs, 16-4 overall, and most importantly won the SB = they finished. The 2005 team during the regular season beat teams by a wider margin but lost in the divisional round. That team did not have Adam Vinatieri either, the 2006 team did. In 2006 we seen the best of Bob Sanders in the playoffs and we went through Ray Lewis/Ed Reed/Steve McNair at Baltimore, and beat Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in the AFC Title Game. Also in respect to the 2009 team, that team didn't have Vinatieri either, nor di

  39. You're not getting #5 with Ryan Kelly and a 5th, this isn't Madden, you're living in a fantasy land Let alone the Bengals would never do this trade considering they have their choice at every non QB blue chip prospect We might aswell offer Eason and a 4th for the #1 pick.. And to top it off "Charles Darrisaw" doesn't exist in this class, not gonna pay much attention to a half baked post..

  43. There's a precedent for this. If a new player is interested in swapping numbers, they reach out and discuss it. Usually there's an exchange of some kind. I wouldn't think any player would just say 'yeah, you can have my number,' unless he wanted to change his number anyway. You negotiate. In 2019, we signed Justin Houston, who wore #50 in KC. Anthony Walker wore #50 at the time, so Houston picked #99. Then in 2020, we traded for Deforest Buckner, who wore #99 in SF. Walker switched to #54, Houston switched to #50, Buckner took #99. Apparently, there was some kind of deal between th

  44. I know it amazes me the hate JB gets in here from a select few. He wasn't even supposed to be the starter in 2019 and got thrown into that role. He went 7-7 in games he started and finished, average. I have been a Colts fan since 1984 and off the top of my head I can name at least 5 QB's that have been a lot worse than JB in a Colts uniform. Art S, Mike Pagel, Curtis Painter, Dan Orlovsky, Scott Tolzien were way worse. We all know JB isn't a franchise QB but damn he is a great backup and can win a few games.

  45. There's a good chance my memory is serving me incorrectly, but I could've sworn that he started turning it ON when he started running out of the gun more. I thought that was when he stopped getting to the line and stopping/hesitating, seemed like he was taking the ball and GOING.

  46. Yeah, when he ranks Justin Fields at No.12, I take notice. He was one of those few to predict Kyler Murray at No.1 well before the draft, I remember. I still feel Lawrence and Zach Wilson are the top 2 QBs in this draft and Justin Fields is a close 3rd. But then, QBs get over drafted due to the value of the position. We will see.
