  1. Dude, you guys are actually on the same side of the argument. lol

     

    lmao i know. i meant to quote the guy he was quoting. And i didnt know how to change it so i just........left it. lol

  2. Interesting logic.  I guess Andrew Luck was hugely overpaid as a rookie coming in last year then.  He was payed 4 million dollars and a 14.5 million dollar bonus, and since he had produced 0 completions, 0 TD passes and 0 passing yards in his career, that must mean he "wasn't worth the $ based on his career so far"

     

    In fact, every rookie in the history of football has been overpaid.

    man, you completely missed his point, but we get your point though. Walden sat behind Mathews and hawk. His stats as a reserve are actually pretty good since obviously the Big Plays are going to be given to the big money playmakers and not the backups. the backups get the run plays and the scrap plays to give the starters a break. i definantly wouldnt judge him on his reserve numbers. And you really need to take the time and do some research on Walden, read his college stat info and watch some videos of him. Im pretty excited about him. I had no idea who he was until Grigson Picked him up but now i look and see Grigsons draft and his F/A so far and i see what he sees in Walden. I wouldve paid him that too. Walden is solid. However i see some serious competiion in Training Camp for the LOLB spot.

  3. A+ Did anyone of us know who Ryan Grigson even was before Jim Irsay made the announcement? I mean, from last years draft then going 11-5 with 36? new players, to this years F/A. Dudes, we keep forgetting that we are in only our second year and the thought of going for the Championship this year is not far fetched at all. Ive NEVER seen a team re-tool this fast and stay in the running the way the Colts are. This guy Grigson is putting together a solid team. How many teams can say this after gutting the roster and the front Office that produced the winningest decade in football history?! When the Iron Curtain rusted the Steelers spent years in oblivion. The 49ers are just now returning to greatness and the Cowboys are still trying to make it work with Tony Romo. I mean seriously, what do you think the Patriots would be without Billichek(?) ? I dont think grigs focuses on winning a superbowl as much as making sure the Colts integrity remains. If your a general manager, a Lombardi isnt the 'medal of honor', its not something that gets passed around from year to year, its being the General Manager that built and kept together the team that holds the record for the winningest decade. and though Bill got old and fizzled, he wears that medal all by himself.  A+ Grigson.  Keep us rolling.

  4. Shows you how dumb Raider Fan is....

     

    The Colts DID have one Sh***y season....    2-14 in 2011.    You know it.    I know it.    But Raider fan doesn't!!

     

    This is a good night in Colts' Nation....   a very good night.    I hope everyone, from Colts front office to all of our fans get a very, very good night's sleep!!

     

    We've earned it!!

    wow. I think what he was sayin was that we came out of the greatest decade in football history, had one ****ty season and now we got Andrew Luck and things seem to fall in our lap like Heyward-Bey and now we are gunning for another 10 years. So, i think he knows it, he's just venting because the Colts are just always good and the Raiders, seemingly no matter how hard they try, still stink. Hey, Dolphins fans are worse. Lots worse. At any given game, their 70,000 fans are under the same illusion that they are going to beat the other team by 80 points. and they brag about it before it even happens. and it NEVER does. lmao.

  5. someone who thinks like me. we went almost all offense last year, this year we need to get younger guys on defense. it isnt like mathis is in his 20's or anything. and i dont know about angerer being around after his contract is up. def would love to get rhodes, trufant or that kid from TAMU

    Hey guys if you get a chance, look up a LB Jordan Campbell. I ran across a video of him then i watched a couple more. This guy is crazy. I mean what stands out most about him other than unofficially benching 225 39 times on video(watch it), is his focus. Im trying to look up more about him and he played at USC until he was involved in something over there. He wasnt even in the combine. Man, he's got ILB written all over him. He would fit real good in a 3-4 IMO. He's got alot of power and speed.

  6. Ridiculous logic....

     

    How many TE's in the NFL are #1 options consistently? Not even Gronkowski is... and if we pay two-TE sets and Fleener turns out to be as productive as Hernandez... who of course is the Pats #2 TE, then I think we will all be pretty happy. However it is much more likely that from a passing-perspective, Fleener sees more balls thrown his way than Allen, Allen is much more of a 'Hernandez' with his well-rounded game and great blocking skills, while Fleener is a pure-pass catcher with improved blocking skills and a legitimate redzone threat... much like Gronk.

     

    Also, you do realize that Stanford's #2 TE behind Fleener is projected as a first round draft pick this year as well? Kind of demeans your argument. Most NFL recievers are #1 targets in college... I just do not get your argument in any way.

    Rediculous is a strong word. All the knocks ive heard on Fleener are unwarranted due to the system he was drafted into. He's not unproductive at all its just that he has to 'share' more than he did in college. Look, Man, you sit back and keep waiting for his first 1,000yrd, 10 TD season and i'll see ya in 4-5 years when our recieving core deteriorates enough to utilize a TE in a more desperate offense.Until then,  dont knock him for having 5-600 yds and 2 or 3 TD per year and no more, saying he's not as good as he was in college or he's not being used the right way by the Coaching staff, its just the system he's in and that his QB is fearless and the WR core around him is a great one. Rediculous? That bad? ok.

  7. You just wasted the most dangerous position in the NFL......The athletic TE....HMMMM...Gronk, Graham, Davis, Hernandez.....I can keep going....the NFL is a pass first league...mark my word barring injury Fleener is going to have a fantastic year...and career.  Way too much athleticism not to.  He is PERFECT for the WCO....simple as that.... :coltslogo:  :coltslogo:  :coltslogo:

    Your missing my point, man, and i dont see how you could. Its not "wasting" a position, its the reality that he's not the #1 option anymore. Fleener got his numbers not by just his great athletisism to size ratio, but also by a very sub-par recieving corps.  Fleener wasnt running next to Reggie Wayne or sharing the slot with T.Y. Hilton. And he definantly didnt have Dwayne Allen next to him. I mean, he's the star at Stanford, But we also have the Star from Clemson, The star from Miami, the star from Florida International,ect... its the NFL, and think about it, if he is to have the same numbers in college than he shouldve been drafted by the Browns, or the Dolphins or the jaguars, teams with a sub-par recieving corps so he can shine. He's just not going to stand out in the Colts the way he did at stanford simply because of the talent around him. and even worse, dont expect Hamilton to revive his glory days by signing as his OC because Fleener was all Hamilton had at times, Griff Whalen, their best reciever, played injured most of the year. And the WCO will benefit a traditional TE better than a WR/TE Hybrid. Fleener is awesome and he will get his numbers, just dont be so let down if it wont be like his Stanford years.  Theres so many reasons besides him.

  8. Guys, Fleener is not going to get much better. And it doesnt matter how good he is, things arent the same on the Colts as it was at Stanford.  Lucks top reciever at Stanford was griff Whalen.  Now his top reciever is Reggie Wayne. Tight ends are, not so much as in the past, but they are meant to be blockers and check-down options that can secure a first down, right? Of course alot of QB 's rely heavily on their TE's but not Luck. Luck is playing his game, and he doesnt always have to go to Fleener anymore. Especially with Dwayne Allen in the mix. Because like it or not Dwayne Allen showed us why he was an award winner in college. He's the perfect TE, and hes not as situational as Fleener is. He lines up at fullback, too. As good as fleener is, the idea of him being what who he was in college is just not realistic. Now that he's with the Colts, he has to wait in line:)

  9. Thank you for including Chase Thomas! He's truly a gem and an incredibly smart player from Stanford (we love our Stanford guys) and he's an underrated player overall, pass rush, run defense, and coverage.

    Dude i promote Chase Thomas ALL the time! Wouldnt it be crazy if......we got Chase this year and Got Shaye Skov next year?! Knowing how them two play together? wow.

  10. Collins is way overdrafted( I like him though), day 2 pick, Woods will probably be meeting with his new team by day 3...in person (he goes at the latest on day 2 and can sneak into the 1st round). Margus Hunt while impressive will be a day 2 pick 

    I sure hope your right because it would sure be great if we can get such talent in the later rounds. i gotta argue for Collins though. He's gone up the draft board to the first round because of his combine. Broad jump 11'7. for a 250 lb linebacker. Jumped 41.5 in. Hes the most athletic linebacker by a mile. the only one faster was Zavier. Plus with the issues with Te'o , the health concerns of Jarvis Jones, and the lack of athletisism from Demontre moore, all that and the fact that Collins was so much better. Now, have you ever watched tape of collis? Man, wherever he goes he's gonna be a star. And Margus Hunt was a second rounder until he got to the combine. we all didnt know that he benched 225 37 times. Plus running a 4.6 40 at 6'8 and 277 lbs. he probably wont even make it to pick 20.

  11. Is this a joke? Austin is one of the most hyped slot receivers ever coming out of the draft... and is film is just outrageous, he could not be stopped in college football. How is TY anything more than 'just a slot receiver'?

    Like your posts dude. However, TY was'nt a slot in college. he was the #1 wide-out in Florida International. Most importantly, unless Austin goes to the Pats, Broncos, Panthers, Colts, Redskins, Seahawks ect... he wont be  all that at all. Remember welker wasnt drafted by New England. And remember Early Doucet? a supposable Super Slot guy that fell into oblivion with the horrible QB's at Arizona.

  12. No. A small speed guy we already have by three. youre forgetting who the QB is. Like peyton, He can make anybody look good. Reggie Waye was the last #1 WR we got in the draft and that was like 2002?  We've had years of WR's from the 4th 5th, 6th, and 7th picks and we went to two superbowls and three AFC championship games. Plus, and a BIG plus, we're running the WCO. , which is a very adaptable offense. We dont need a WR. I thought Irsay was wasting money on a Big F/A in all those tweets. im glad we came up empty because we're already full of talent.

  13. kickoff and punt returns.. thinking outside the box

    wow. Thinking with a lack of common sense.  We definantly dont need to spend anymore money o out O-line outside of the Draft. Especially pay a starter his money so he can handle our kickoffs. Now that im writing this i realize you were joking. oops. It sure seems we got a thing for Stanford. Chase Thomas would be a good addition, too. Shayne Skov will be a 1st rd MLB next year. I think, though, that we should just ride out the contracts of brown and ......  i mean, if stephan is avail in the 4th, maybe.

  14. true but move gosder to center because idk how much you know about the colts and Castonzo* but he needs to stay on that left side bc he's got a mean right hook and put vollmer at RT, which means Samson would be a guard and at 6'3'' hes more the size for a guard and beens we got ballard (a power back) fits good for samson to be his size at his height beens we pass the ball almost 50 x's a game and we dont really need a pulling guard just a movin the sled type of guy and hes fast enough to pull but as much as we run the ball its not like he'll get to exhausted

    Whens the last time you recall seeing a 6'7 center?

  15. I, for one, cant wait to see this guy blossom. He has all the intangibles. He's done good when given the opportunity. Being stuck behind Luck and Stafford, he was a second RD pick. Well, the football gods are smiling upon Stanton because suddenly he has been blessed to be mentored by the mentor of the likes of Manning, Rothlisberger, and Luck. Not to mention his stable of recievers includes one of the top thoroughbreds in the nation. I wish you the Very, very best, Drew Stanton!

  16. Who is this 6'6 receiver you speak of?

    Cant recall his name and too lazy to look, but we got him from the Arena league. just two months ago. Watch the video on him, He looks like another Calvin Johnson, just hope he can play somewhat like him.

  17. That's the thing.  Why not get a possession receiver?  We're going to have a lineup with all receivers 6ft and under which is on the small end of the scale.

    I see your point but when Luck snaps the ball he's also got options of 6'6 Fleener and 6'3 Allen. Plus we got a WR already this off-season that is 6'6. I mean its perfect. Have you seen how T.Y. at his size works the middle of the field? And he always has a Tall option TE underneath.

  18. why do we want another small receiver?

    Reggie Wayne is 6'0 FT, 200lb. Thats not small at all. seriously. And as good as his routes are and as many underneath passes he takes, hes actually pretty big. Most route runners are smaller and lighter.
