  1. Wow! You are such a keyboard warrior. Whatever your frustrations or problems are, remember, I’m not the one who caused them. I thought this was a message board where different opinions about football and the team we all cheer are accepted and debated, not a cauldron for intolerance and personal attacks. Ok, and as I’m going to make sure the door doesn’t hit me in the you know what (anticipating replies after this), I’ll give you the honor of knowing first that this is my last message on this site as I’m closing my account. I hope everyone is happy, enjoys positive news, and lives in harmony. Peace!
  2. I think you missed it, I just don’t value the guard position in the 1st round, period I don’t have much time to argue on message boards, but I would just say this to hopefully add a little bit of clarity, and then we may agree to disagree. If you take Nelson out of the game and replace him with a guard half as good, I don’t believe it makes much of a difference statistically in terms of points scored by the offense (1 or 2 points, if that). And that’s in terms of points, not even talking about winning.
  3. There is a youtube video of every Auburn offensive snap in Georgia game. Smith performed very well on most of the plays, so he looks like a good guard. Unrelated, but the Auburn RB looks good too. Whoever drafted that guy got a good one.
  4. You and others completely missed my point. For whoever cares, I am convinced Nelson is a great guard, potential Pro Bowler, and All Pro teamer. It’s just that the impact of his position is not high enough to justify a top 10 draft pick. I believe in the first round an NFL team should pick so called “difference makers”, which are usually top players who pass, catch passes, or help stopping the pass (pass rushers, DBs, athletic linebackers). The availability of top such players drops significantly past the 1st round. Now, this narrative of protecting Luck has been around since he’s been drafted. Grigson drafted 4 linemen 2 years ago, more before that, and where did that take the Colts? You still hear how the Colts line sucks. For O line you need continuity, good line coaching, and a QB who understands where the pressure comes and gets rid of the ball quickly. Colts had none of these. They did have that during Manning years for the most part. One more thing, my opinion has no impact on how the Colts play, so I don’t get why fellow message board members get so upset. If you are happy with the Colts draft good for you! It’s the offseason, when all sins are washed away, and all NFL fans find renewed hope and optimism.
  5. Lol, thanks for you support, man. I really didn’t mean to rain on anybody’s parade. And you are correct, it didn’t ruin my day, I just lost interest. I can’t stand how other teams pick players that can make a difference (good linebackers, pass rushers, wide receivers, DBs) while the Colts picked a future Pro Bowl guard that won’t make any difference between them winning and losing.
  6. You are pathetic, think about it.
  7. This pick is so underwhelming that I stopped following the whole draft. I just check the list when they are done. This guy, as impressive and good as he is, he is is not going to make any difference for Colts being a winning team. I’m very low on Ballard right now, and after the bad judgement he showed with McDaniels debacle, picking a guard at #6 can only make things worse.

    Ouch

    The truth is that it’s really hard to get excited about Luck’s return just based on (optimistic) words from Ballard and others associated with the team, need more than that.

    New Ballard quotes on Brissett

    At this point I’m afraid Brissett is our long term QB, as something is going on with Luck they don’t tell us.

    Colts 2018 Schedule Announced [Merge]

    Excellent schedule, most games at 1:00 PM, it helps players get into a nice routine. Bye week in the middle, what else would they want! As for the predictions, nobody knows. Based on the record last year few people who like to look knowledgeable have the audacity to predict a *itive 2028 record for the Colts. I hope they are one of those teams who make a great jump from one year to next.

    Dwight Freeney set to retire as Colt

    Glad to hear! It’s a little bit a surprise he wanted to do this now because he appeared to be displeased with how he left the team.

    Andrew Luck will speak with media tomorrow

    Boy, I’m glad I’m busy with my life and I don’t really live and die with the Colts because I would find this situation even more frustrating than already is. I really hope Colts, Luck and company don’t think they can treat fans like fools because that would be ... I don’t even want to think about it.
  13. I hope Colts pick Minkah Fitzpatrick (he is fantastic) or Tremaine Edmunds.

    Colts Re-Sign RB Christine Michael

    A lot of competition for RB spots
