  1. I like the signing for both Mack and the Colts....Mack gets to work his way back from the Achilles with a one year deal and move on for more cash, the Colts get a one year rental on a proven commodity that knows the system......should help Wentz too confidence wise having excellent 3 headed attack on the ground with Hines.
  2. TY Hilton- 1yr thanks for the memories deal not over the top money but finish your career here level Marlon Mack- would love incentive heavy (but team friendly 2 year deal so if all is well he gets paid fair, injured chump change) Justin Houston-Let walk, at better than vet minimum he offers no R.O.I. Denico Autry-3 year mid level for position deal Xavier Rhodes-2 year fair compensation contract (but I think he wants to play for the highest bidder/not us) Anthony Walker Jr.-I would love to keep him if we could, at 3 year team discount rate but I think he goes elsewhere
  3. I dont think we have enough capital draft wise to get a meaningful QB this year, I think the prudent answer is find a one year band aid be it Rivers or whoever, try to make it with them and hope Eason gets enough rep experience and shows ability and readiness for 2023 while you fill what holes you can outside of QB this season; If Eason doesnt pan out and show strong starter capabilities during this season....then go all in 2023-24 to draft your starter. It is definitely a giant uphill crap shoot no matter what Ballard ends up doing.....there is no scenario that isnt full of mammoth risk...I j
  4. I just couldn't do it....I mean, I respect his career and talent...but I just couldn't....... its like inviting Satan to the church fish fry, putting him in a suit and tie doesn't make him a better person, he is still the devil after all lol
  5. A couple thoughts on the offseason in general: I dont know if Wentz can be re-habbed or not, but the price is too high to find out in my mind.....they would have to give us picks to take him from my standpoint, and if the picks are not significant, then I would want a radical re-work of his contract....doesnt matter to me that we have the cap room to take his salary or not, to me the value of return is not there to warrant the number to begin with......on some of our free agents, we may lose them to the highest bidder, Ballards M.O. is assess value of player offer contract, let them test marke
  6. As a realist, I pray we don't get embarrassed......as fan I wanna give the Colties a chance to overcome their head scratching schemes or lack there of on offense and defense at times....so Colts 34- Bills 31..... we trail the entire game and cardiac kid a game winning touchdown as time expires........our fan base, pencils us into a SB parade scenario at COVID safe distances, and the realist in me just prays we don't get embarrassed in the second round lol
  7. I am not a fan of permanently retiring a #.....however, Hall of famers with long and storied carriers should be honored. I wish we would set a time period for players jersey numbers we hold with high esteem. So for instance a 20 year period for say Manning's #18. That length of time would honor who he was and what he did for the remainder of his generations fandom. 20 years removed new generation and the chance for someone else to build a storied carrier in that #. The practical side to this kind of approach there are only 99 Jersey #'s and team size, will probably only grow if they successful
  8. Brisset camp/pre season arm and Seasonal insurance in case old man rivers gets hurt....Eason, developmental (at least competent back up on the low end/found lightning in a bottle franchise QB of the future) flash forward 2021....Brisset no longer needed Eason back up to Old man Rivers, and or competing for starting spot/ competent back up to drafted Franchise guy.....
  9. Hilton, Campbell, Pittman, Pascal....Doyle, Burton, Cox, Mack, Thomas, Hines....a freakin' full back lol......behind a great O-line if we can avoid injuries....and build some O-line depth.....Ballard did about the best he could for 2020.....we still need that franchise QB, and a solid back up long term, but thats a pretty stout band aid for this year
  10. Gotta wonder what Phillip Rivers thoughts are on the draft and FA signing of Burton.....he came here under the guise of "I think I still got a year or two of high level play left in me, and the Colts seem to be a team that is moving in the right direction, Ill give it a shot" to ....... ? Hopefully his feeling for (?) is..... "Holy shazaam I made a good choice !"
  11. Thomas still has to learn and demonstrate that learning of pass protect in the NFL to see more snaps than Mack, otherwise every time we trot him out there, we are keying the defense we are gonna run the ball....so I think Mack's reaction is legit....Thomas "could" develop into #1/replacement over Mack, but if Mack is a competitor and I believe he is, he would welcome the challenge to get better and let the chips fall where they may.
  12. at 34 for me Mims/Pittman (if there is a run on a few positions leading up they either may both be there, or neither be there......so I am splittin' the baby and hoping 1 will be there. at 44 Ezra Cleveland and I really don't have a plan B on this spot...... So WR, OT would be my dream sweep for round 2....I really dont like any of the QB's that would be available to us, I would rather roll the dice with the 25 million dollar man and aim high in 2021 for a franchise guy.....and every pick we can scrape together to get there.
  13. Was there ever a time where there was a gray outline on the numbers (was thinking it might have existed back in the Bert Jones days but maybe Im crazy) ? Introducing our 3rd color besides belt and face mask wouldn't kill a brother lol
  14. isn't Houstin #99....think thats right? cant remember.......wonder who wins that battle?
  15. I dont know if I agree that the Colts will be drafting a QB this year..... I think they may target next year on a "all in" to move as close to #1 as they can get with draft picks for whoever they think the "guy" is..... too soon to tell at this point, in related news but totally different: I am luke warm on Rivers, hope he warms my heart cause right now, I'm not convinced he has enough juice to move the needle for me...
