  1. 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
  2. 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.....
  3. 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
  4. 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 !"
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. isn't Houstin #99....think thats right? cant remember.......wonder who wins that battle?
  9. 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...
  10. I always raise an eyebrow at times like this in any draft. Not who I would have went for, not who I thought they would take a swing at...but I give the scouting the department the benefit of the doubt, it seemed like there were other contributors still on the board, so I would expect Green will also be a contributor. But a nice road grader, or LB'ers inside and out seemed like where I would have started my GM'ing from defensively this year but we will see....
  11. I am perfectly fine with the premise of your draft, I am not up to speed enough to speak on individuals selected beyond the top few rounds, but in principal this is what I have been advocating. I don't want a guard or center with a first round pick because as good as an Alex Mack is, I don't want to be paying a C, RG double digit millions per year after his rookie contract, its like "rent-a-stud" and then back to square 1. And that's if your pick is a hit, there is a possibility that O-lineman is a dud......so a lose lose scenario in my book. More Defense is needed, even if we field a good 11
  12. The only thing I don't like about taking O-Line in the first round is I don't like the idea of paying a guard or center 10+million a year after his rookie contract if he ends up being first round talent. And GOD love a duck if he doesn't pan out as first round talent.
  13. I did dig this dude in the pre-season, but I think he has a big hill to climb to overcome Moore/Irving just based on experience on the field alone, but throw em all up against the wall and see who sticks
  14. Thread title disclaimer: For those that remember the car lovingly dubbed the MG Midget~ a tiny British car that had a penchant for breaking down when you needed it most I don't really get hung up on Mock Drafts, they are fun and interesting, mostly head scratching to read and follow. I don't get hung up on player evaluations and rankings either, I don't get any access to coaches film, highlight cut ups and the next pro day of a player that I attend will be my first...I hope they serve complimentary beer and nacho's.....but what I do, is try to assemble in my mind what the Colts ne
  15. I think it was a matter of timing, with Irving/Moore and the relative depth of talent which "should" be available through the draft at 18th I think they felt ok either way.
  16. The following is my dot connecting, yours may differ, please feel free to agree, disagree or preferably share your opinions: I think the Colts are feeling confident with Clayton Geathers to start opposite of Adams and may look to add a developmental safety /special teams guy in later rounds. I think the Colts were ok with not being aggressive in keeping Freeman with Irving and Moore having a red shirt year behind him. I think there is basically nothing of note rush linebacker wise in the draft from their current draft position which is a problem, and I hope we don't reach.
  17. Finally Freeman made a play that makes me wish we'd kept him lol....In sincerity though I appreciate his words....I haven't had access to the alleged tape they are arguing about above to see who was knitting with only one needle last year consistently, but would love to see it, One would think if someone was mailing it in you would see a surprise release/ cut by the coaching staff then I could at least believe Fleener's accusations were true....but maybe the poster is saying people or peoples were mailing it in and the coaching staff was too dumb/unaware to pick up on it....that would be an ev
  18. If they are worth getting, we will pass up on them under the guise "we need to get younger" ......but cue the rampant free agent amnesiacs clamoring for their coltdom...........But in all seriousness Laurinatis would be good I don't know enough about Long's injury situation to have an opinion there.....
  19. Andre Johnson- Cut him, lets save some dough and ride the tide with what we got Trent Cole- zero value this would be my first cut as arm chair GM D'Qwell Jackson-I would be drafting his replacement ASAP but keep Arthur Jones-Based on cap savings I saw a while back, its cheaper to keep her......not enough cap savings in other words to cut him Robert Mathis-Keep him and assign a task force to find the fountain of youth for him so he never goes away Kendall Langford-Keep one of the few good acquisitions in free agency Erik Walden-4 mil. a year was too much when we si
  20. I would have still signed TY, to me the problem with the WR as a whole (QB problems not withstanding) is that We have TY, Moncrief, Dorsett all essentially being small speedy receivers ....they are like the Marvin Harrison, but where is the Reggie Wayne type that is not necessarily a burner, but in his day could get deep, but was a threat on the slant, and other quick hit routes.....you got 3 guys that can run to the goal post and no one to consistently get the short stuff, gotta be able to hi-lo the secondary consistently to create space. Some of said Donte is or could be that guy, but in my
  21. Skip Bayless paid to be a contrarian.......its a lot of work researching a small meaningless statistic and then building a whole point of view around it......I suppose....the reporting equivalent of the Maury show
  22. In life there's Murphys Law, for the Colts it's Irsay's Law.....which is to say if we have been participating in this Color rush trend for years, look at our "All white" away uni's if you're unsure....
  23. Doctor, Doctor help me please, I know you'll understand There's a time device inside of me, I'm a self-destructin' man There's a red, under my bed And there's a little green man in my head And he said, "you're not goin' crazy, you're just a bit sad 'Cause there's a man in ya, gnawin' ya, tearin' ya into two."~ The Kinks.......and Andrew Luck
  24. We can! and WE will!!!!!!!! wait, wrong rallying cry....I need to work on that....
  25. I am okay with the spirit of a deceptive play call if it is based on observed trends by a team, or evidence from past observation of a trend To call a deceptive play in "hopes" of a desired reaction is a gamble, a hunch, a hope based on nothing but desperation really A better risk if you want to argue the "risk angle" is to keep your offense on the field and go for it on 4th and 3 with a hard count or snapping the ball. Pagano and company appeared more aggressive throughout the game to that point, which I loved seeing, up and until that play where in my opinion that aggression crossed over in
