    Stampede Blue on Braden Smith

    I know we've been discussing Braden at RT a lot, and I for one was someone who was a bit concerned after the kc game, but this article definitely alleviated a lot of my worries. I was unsure if Braden's struggles were a result of a lack of athleticism, or if he just needed more time to learn and get better at his new position. This article shows that it's just some technique he needs to get better at, maybe gain some more experience at the position, but it did a lot to set my mind at ease as far as RT is concerned.

    Details on the Glowinski Contract....

    That's a very good point. Something I hadn't even thought of. We saw the huge spike in contracts but saw a dip in production from virtually all of those high priced guys. So it's very possible the market crashed, or at best softened in just one year. Great point by you.

    What can we learn from the pats??

    I learned a few things from this postseason as it relates to the Patriots. 1. Their offensive key is the same as Peyton's. It's getting to the line of scrimmage, reading the defense, and giving Tom Brady full autonomy to change the play to anything based off what he sees. They become water, able to adapt to any defensive call. 2. They exploit your weakness repeatedly. If theres a linebacker on the field who is a liability in the run game, they run right at him. If there is a corner who cant keep up with a receiver, they target that receiver over and over again. 3. On defense, they play tight man coverage where they borderline hold on every play, and they do it purposefully on every play so that the refs dont call it every single time. 4. They do a bunch of twists and stunts to try and get pressure, bringing guys you dont expect and dropping guys you expect to rush into coverage, disguising their blitzes to confuse the O-Line. As a matter of fact, they targeted former Colt Austin Blythe because they felt that he wasn't that good, and they beat him all day. Perhaps they're right. On the Rams: 1. Jared Goff isn't good. I watched him all year due to having Woods on most of my fantasy teams. He's inconsistent, inaccurate, and his poise under pressure is AWFUL. Dude short arms every dang thrown when there's a chance he gets hit, or just throws the ball way up in the air and prays his guy comes down with it. It cost his team a Superbowl. I think Mcvay has hid Goff's problems with his intelligent play design, giving him more time in the pocket and really wide open receivers, and that's made Goff look better than he actually is. 2. When you play the Patriots, you can't come in and just "do you" and expect to have success. Belichick and his staff are just too good for that. You have to do things they've never seen, call plays that go completely against your own tendencies. The rams did the same tight formation, fake jet sweep play action stuff they've done all year and Belichick picked them apart. They never ONCE went spread wide out of the shotgun, which I believe was a massive mistake. How can we learn from this? 1. Give Andrew complete control at the LOS. 2. Be unpredictable and break away from all of your own tendencies on offense against the Pats.

    Quenton Nelson Played With 2 Bulging Disc

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.si.com/edge/2015/09/03/rothman-institute-pro-athletes-back-injuries-tony-romo-dwight-howard Here's a very informative article about these types of issues in athletes. Here are my takeaways: 1. They are VERY common in athletes, especially in offensive lineman. 2. Simple rest may be all that's needed, or some basic medication. 3. If pain persists, surgery can be an option. Superstars like Tony Romo and Dwight Howard are examples of players who successfully returned after surgery. But even the surgery is considered relatively minor. 4. As it pertains to Big Q, hes gonna be fine. He just really needs to take it easy on his back for a few weeks, and I'm sure he has access to world class therapy that will help make the healing even easier. Colts nation, everything is fine. Dont panic, hes gonna be alright

    Colts hire OL and TE Coaches

    When other respected coaches go out of their way to give unsolicited praise for a guy that's not on their team, I see that as a pretty good sign.

    Colts extend RG Mark Glowinski [Merge]

    The beautiful thing is we have the resources to both add future-depth and add impact players right now so we can capitalize on this window. 110 ish million in cap space and 5 picks in the first 4 rounds. Ballard will address both, I'm sure of it.

    Ballard/Dungy to be on Dakich

    https://www.1070thefan.com/blogs/kevins-corner/colts-coverage/chris-ballard-notebook-need-find-dominant-edge-rusher Here's KB's full write up of the conversation. I feel like every time Ballard speaks we learn more and more about his thought process. He's very transparent with the fans.

    The play that made me react was him beating multiple guys at the 2nd level.

    This years FAs

    That's a totally legitimate possibility. Like I said in my earlier post, even if he doesn't develop more, hes very good, and I'd be very happy with him as our #3 (I just want a more explosive playmaker alongside Kenny). But, you're correct, he absolutely can continue to rise. I just see it being easier to imagine Quincy doing that because hes so young, and Collins because hes been there before. Desir is a bit older and IMO isnt as athletic as the younger guys.
