  1. Hello, I'm no analyst, just bored during the Corona Lockdown here in Denmark, so what to do... Well, after a great draft and off-season ON PAPER, I have tried to find all the positive things to look forward to for the 2020 season, IF it's on come football time. 1. Rivers is a better QB than Brissett, no questions asked about that. Yes, he's older and had more int's than Brissett ( 20 vs. 6), but with 288.4 Yrd/G vs. 196.1 Yrd/G from Brissett and 23 TD's vs. 18, we get a QB that can throw the ball down field. Add that Rivers will play behind a top 3 if not the best O-line in football, instead of one of the worst, giving him more time in the pocket, I think he will have one of his best seasons of his career this coming season, and have less int's. So look forward to lots of throws down field and fireworks when Rivers take the field in a Colts Uniform. 2. DeForest Buckner will add power, size and in my eyes, he's just the perfect addition to our defence. With Justin Houston and Leonard already on the defensive side of the ball, I think Buckner's presence and impact will improve their game as well, and that Houston will become a great mentor for Buckner, so he can develop and take the next step to becoming an even better player. So great addition to the team, and a move that I think will bring the Colts defence near a spot in the top 10 for the best overall defences in the NFL next season. 3. Ballard finally used some of the enormous cap space to improve the team and brought back Castanzo. He was more aggressive and the signing of Rivers, Buckner and other free agents are in my eyes the best off season deals he have made as a GM. Yes he signed Houston last season, but for the first couple of years he was building the foundation and were more defensive and laid back in his approach. But this season, he became aggressive and seemed * - in a good way, as he wants to win now. Honestly, I think he's * in ways we don't even know and that the whole Luck thing, just started a fire inside him, that will have a huge impact on the whole organisation. And this is no knock on Ballard, but a huge positive in my eyes, as I think this was needed for him to grow as a GM. Because as I see it and though he started his tenure as a GM by saying, "It's never just about one guy". It's was always just about one guy when we had Luck and we all know it. So the win now attitude and signings of Rivers, Buckner and the great additions of Pittman and Taylor gives the colts the best chance in years to compete for the AFC South and AFC.
  2. Buckner with the trade for #13 pick - great pick and quite the steal
  3. The Best OL man we have never heard of. he will become a HOF'er and win 12 straight SB with the colts and eason
  4. TY Hilton is our only really good WR, so we really need some new firepower at WR. Campbell havn't really been a success, So hope we land a Denzel Mims or Higgins to complement Hilton.
  5. You guys need to do what ever you can to avoid other people for the next couple of weeks. It's hitting the US like no other countrie right now. 10.000 new cases in the last 48 hours, that's a lot and worse than most other countries. I know Donald are more focused in the economy, but if you don't listen up and do what you individually can to avoid infection, there will be no football for you... like ever again. We just saw how students partied for spring break in Florida last night... wth.... are no one in the US taking this thing serious? If things develop like it does right now, you will have more than 100.000 infected within the next few days. so PLEASE STAY AT HOME - WASH YOUR HANDS - AVOID OTHER PEOPLE - AND AT LEAST KEEP DISTANCE TO OTHER PEOPLE.
  6. If you / americans don't take this seriously, you will have infected in the 100.000 within weeks, your number just exploded and it sounds like its a joke to many of you. instead you buy more guns and ammo... wth... get your % together and start acting like you should and take responsibility.
  7. I hope you are right about that possibility, and that you get well through this weird time.
  8. Well, UEFA EURO 2020 is postponed to 2021, the Champions League and Europa League is suspended indefinitely, with no new date for the remaining games. Yes I Know money talks and there are a lot of money at stake for both the NFL, UEFA and clubs and franchises worldwide, and the TV/ broadcast companies have invested a lot of money for the rights to transmitting games and events. Right now, the discussion is about the Olympics in Tokyo, and though they say they WILL have that to go through as planned, I honestly don't believe that it will. And those who say it will go away with the weather getting warmer, well, take a look at IRAN right now, they are fighting it but they are losing the battle to Corona, and they have a much warmer climate right now than most other countries. But we can hope that it soon ends, but with no vaccine, it looks like its going to take a long while before we can start acting normal and attend sport events. :(
  9. With the spreading of the Coronavirus/ Covid-19, that already have cancelled most sporting events this year, I think the NFL will be next to cancel activities. Here in europa things are bad, like in really bad, and it's getting worse. now we can follow the news, and It looks like the US will be hit hard, if not harder in the coming weeks and months. The highways, city downtown and parks are entirely abandoned here in Denmark for the most parts, and almost everything is closed. So all talk about free agency and sports, well, that doesn't matter much right now, and Im actually not sure Rivers will wear his colts uniform more than for a photoshoot. Hope the best, but fear the worst.
  10. Quenton Nelson, Darius Leonard, Malik Hooker, Marlon Mack that's his best hits over the last three drafts, then there have been a lot of picks that are questionable and busts. But overall, he's done a great job. Not his fault Luck bailed on us.
  11. I know... not gonna happen, but... Let's say for the argument of this post... that would come true... we simply couldn't avoid being picked for the NFL Hard Knocks 2020. We already are in the conversation as we didn't make the playoffs and don't have a first year HC. What other story could knock the return of luck off the board? In general, I don't think the Colts will be on the show 2020 as we are too boring to watch, but I would love it. How about you guys?
  12. Brissett won't even get a winning record this season... time to draft the next QB we suck with him as QB. I wan't Andrew Back
  13. Is Brissett a bad QB - Hell NO Is Brissett a good QB - Yeah he is Can he become a better QB - Of course he can But can he become a Super Bowl winning QB - Hell NO Jacoby Brissett is an okay/ Good QB, but he will never become a great QB, and though Foles, Flacco and ELi have won a Super Bowl or two, I don't think the Colts will win one with Brissett. I'd say, draft a QB in the coming draft and let him sit behind Brissett and then if / when things goes south in next season, start the new QB and let him develop. Since Luck retired and Brissett took over, I haven't really enjoyed that many colts games, because Brissett is a MEH QB for the most part. Sometimes he shines, but that's as rare a thing as the colts winning a Super Bowl. We have the best O-line in the entire NFL, some great players on defence to build around, so CB... find us the next QB and bring in some new energy to the QB position so we can win the big one.
  14. I think it will come down to how he performs in the playoffs the next two seasons. Let's say we face New England once again, and they get the lead, then Brissett has to perform and play from behind and really show how good he is. If he can hang in there with Brady in a playoff game, or just keep us in games in the playoff, then it's promising. BUT, if we are one and done in the playoffs and he does not deliver or play poorly, then I think Ballard will scratch his head and start looking toward the draft or maybe free agency. It's way too soon to judge him, as the real elite and franchise QB's need to show their level in the playoffs. But Flacco, Foles and Eli have won in the playoffs and they are in the same QB category as Brissett, which is just behind the great and elite QB's.
