  1. How many sacks and hurries and QB hits did Nelson allow? (Actually asking) Donald is the single best defensive player in the league, and it's not particularly close, so using him as a barometer in contract negotiations probably isn't a very fair shake. The question isn't really "is he worth $20m+" but "do you want to pay for the best offensive lineman in football (as voted by his peers)" Dude has done nothing but make All-Pro every year he's been in the league. He can't play all 5 positions on the line at the same time...
  2. I'm pretty positive that they're trying to prevent taunting "at" another player. If Benny hadn't looked down at a player while being hyped, I think it goes uncalled. It's dumb, but when watching live and I saw it happen, I immediately knew that flag was for taunting. It wasn't unlike the Parris Campbell flex that the league used as a "what not to do" example. Not a fan of this emphasis, and it's going to cost teams games this year. But it's pretty clear that's not going to fly this season.
  3. "We need to stop running #12s out of the building!" I always look for the 450s area row 1. Haven't been to a ton of games but I really like those seats. Usually a pretty decent price too.
  4. If you need another, I can do it this year. That draft date/time works for me. If you end up with an odd number of teams, feel free to cut me first as I'm already in 2 others this year, but I can work with that draft date/time.
  5. There it is. I've been intentionally holding back enthusiasm because of the Duron Carter, Deon Cain, Reece Fountain heartbreaks of yesteryear. I think you're right. Time to move on. I'm on the hype train!
  6. Pats at Colts with my Pats fan wife. Will be my 3 year old's 2nd Colts game (went to Falcons game 2 years ago) and my 6 month old's (obviously) first. Gotta try and make sure they pick their fanhood wisely, lol!
  7. My guess would be no. I'm not aware of anywhere requiring proof of vaccination except maybe schools or government employees. While I do think everyone who can get vaccinated should, it would be a disaster if it was absolutely required to go in public.
  8. Just bought tickets for the family to the Pats @ Colts game on Dec 18/19. Yay payday! Hoping I may be able to swing another for one of the divisional home games. What games are you all planning on going to this year? What's your level of comfort going into the season in regards to large sporting events? EDIT: Absolutely meant to post this on the Colts Football board. My bad!
  9. Glowinski. Everyone likes to bash him like he sucks just because he's the "weak link" on our O-Line that is otherwise composed of 3 first round picks and a second round pick. I'm no guru, but I think he holds up pretty well - at least in regard to those that say he sucks.
  10. It might not be the main reason we signed him but it certainly is a bonus. Belichick does this all the time and is called a genius for it. Signing former first rounders that were cut to a one year deal, have them show the league that they're back while benefiting the team, and then letting them walk for a positive value in the comp pick formula. We just gotta hope the achilles heals right. Big risk, but the team obviously thought the move worth it.
  11. Man... 51, 53, 54, 56... 50s got some people who can really lay the.... Boom.
  12. Eyeroll. He said luck plays a part. He did NOT say the draft is BASED AROUND luck. That's insane. He understands that luck definitely plays a part (even moreso this year with the limited evals) but to claim that he said the draft is entirely based around random luck is even dumber than the original post. The front office and coaching staffs work together to identify what they think the team needs are and who best fits for the structure of the team. That's not luck. Maybe this is why you think you're so much smarter than the front office. You think that they base their draft strategy on luck while you read some scouting reports on google so clearly they should just pick who you want them to pick - otherwise you're not their friend (or fan) anymore.
  13. That's dumb. If the rest produce it will be because the FO and coaching staff had a solid, cohesive plan in place that we, as fans, are not aware of and that actually worked. They didn't just throw darts at the board and hope it works out. The biggest question is if their plan is a good one. We'll see.
  14. I'm at a C. Loved the Paye pick. Chance to get the #1 rated pass rusher with character that screams horseshoe. Was a top need. That said, there's legitimate questions about his production. Dayo was a big surprise. Was apparently on his way to being a big draft riser before the injury. I can get behind the player, but it feels like we bought too high. Ballard said he thinks teams coming up were interested, but I'm not sure. I think next year this will feel like a free draft pick, but it's not really fair to expect anything from him this year... which hurts in my opinion. Grandson is exactly what I think Reich was looking for. He seems small to me, but outside of that I'm ok with it. The drops don't worry me as much. I think he could be very involved from Week 1. Will still need a Doyle replacement in the next year or so. Shawn Davis is another safety. We like to collect those, lol. Should be able to get on the field in the 3 safety looks. Special teams. 5th round I'm good with that. Sam Ehlinger was a total shock to me. Sounds like this might have been another horseshoe character guy that we just wanted to get in the locker room. Good college production, before this last season (or 2?) there was talk of him being in the first 2 tiers of QBs if he developed. That didn't happen so he fell. I expect him to look good (and mobile) in preseason and we'll have ourselves another Brissett/Kelly fiasco between Eason/Ehlinger. Fun times ahead. Hopeful he never has to suit up unless he does win the backup. Strachan isn't a name I'd seen before. In the 7th round, I'm 100% on board with grabbing someone with his HWS. Compete with Patmon for a potential roster spot, but I could see him hanging out on practice squad all year for that chance to develop. Nothing wrong with a lottery ticket in the final round. Like Ehlinger, can't really *expect* him to ever contribute though. Fries was almost like a "here you go" from Ballard. OL depth is always welcome, and from a big program in the 7th you hope he's able to compete with what we have. I expect to sign an outside tackle that will kind of eliminate the availability of an open position, but again in the 7th I'm not critical on just throwing darts. This class has very high potential (if those top 2 hit we'll be lethal on D)... But overall feels overly risky to me. Really stinks we weren't able to find a LT we were comfortable with, especially being very likely without a first next year. I'm giving it a very average C. Some needs addressed, some good players added, but so much risk of bust/wasted picks. I trust Ballard and the teams evals, so I'll be rooting hard for these guys. Go Colts!
  15. Our draft is over. Take some time and actually look into our new players. See how they fit into what we want to do. Back off the ledge and/or drop the pitchforks. Just remember this isn't a one man show and the Colts front office is VERY well respected around the league. They're the pros, we're the schmos. Be critical if you feel the need, but don't be a toddler about it. Go Colts!
  16. Oh I know. But since he's a name people have been throwing around, I expect the usual suspects will be extra sensitive that he went in our division. Every post is basically a joke for me at this point lol
  17. NFLN showed 6'1.5" which is tiny for a TE. Like that he has some RAC ability. We knew they wanted a pass catching TE. Welcome aboard!
  18. I've thought that all off-season. Dude was DT1 last year for many before returning. Must have fallen off a cliff because all draft season he's been nowhere to be seen.
