    The best thing about Pitt coming out if I remember correctly was his hands. He's caught 21 out of 28 so 75%

    I posted this link in the Pittman thread, but it directly relates to this.



    "Overall, the Colts may have a stud in the making with Pittman Jr. He knows how to separate, is reliable (has caught all 21 catchable balls thrown his way), and is now starting to make big plays. I’m excited to see what he does the next few weeks as the Colts play against a few good teams that have iffy at best defenses."

    Tbh I forgot we drafted the guy! I was like who's this Grover dude?

    How could you forget?  I'm pretty sure he was the pick that Mike Mayock lost it on when the orangutan pushed the button to "make the pick."  It broke Mayock that day, haha.

  3. 2nd half was rough. Bad calls usually even out but that didn't happen for us today. The no call on the Doyle shot and that INT/fumble nonsense. The other turnovers sealed it. I never felt like we were completely outclassed by the Ravens.


    That being said, this offense is tough to watch. I did think #12 looked really good in that Campbell role though... so there's that...

    :) I disagree we need a veteran QB for one simple reason. We have a QB coach, we have an older presence to teach these guys, as well as an O-Coordinator and HC. I don't want any old QBs on this team possibly starting if our young guys struggle. Next year needs to be a year to find our new franchise QB. Let them take all their bumps and don't waste a spot on the roster with a veteran QB that should never see playing time.

    I'm curious, if the front office decided to go this route and we started 0-4, with Eason/Kelly/draftedQB, do you think you would be happy that they're taking their bumps or would your mental health suffer from it?


    I guess just be careful what you ask for.

    And don't forget, before Blackmon, Ballard picked another FS with a very high pick.  And he plucked JT from WI, a program that runs up the middle. passing on that Sproles like guy from LSU that KC took.  I think that emphasizing the middle of the field is the plan.   Or else its a strange coincidence.

    How did Ballard pass on a guy that was taken before his first pick? Unless you're talking about pick #13 which wouldn't have been CEH anyway.

  6. Any given Sunday. Especially in week 1. Especially against a divisional foe. Especially when one team has recent historical struggles in opening week. Especially when one team hasn't won at the other team's home stadium in over half a decade.

    They looked pretty awful today against the Chargers. Their only win is against the Colts.


    On another note.........Also after today's games I think I could get onboard with those hoping for Matthew Stafford to wear the shoe.

    Also the Bears only loss is against the Colts. Keep the same energy.

    "It was Utah safety Julian Blackmon in the third round, but he wasn’t even the best safety available from his own team at that point (Terrell Burgess). That pick was puzzling..."



    Grade: D


    There was a time when Chris Ballard could do no wrong — like one pick ago. Well, this draft pick doesn’t hit the same. The only reason why this didn’t get an F was that the Colts needed some help in the secondary. And the Colts traded down for a guy who has some potential, so they got a pass.

    The problem is, Julian Blackmon isn’t going to help them any time soon. With corners like Cameron Dantzler, Darnay Holmes and edge rushers Alex Highsmith and Jonathan Greenard available, they could have gotten an immediate return."

    Biggest Reach: Julian Blackmon

    Coming into the 2020


    Blackmon doesn’t have the size to be a force in the middle of the field and consistently help in run support. He also struggles with his angles to the ball-carrier. He’s quick to read and diagnose plays, which will be helpful in the screen game and on RPO-type plays, but the Colts could have found someone with skills more in-line with their need at the position.

    Couple that with Blackmon coming off an ACL injury, and you have a major reach. Blackmon was selected in the third round at 85th overall. On Pauline’s big board, Blackmon came in as the 226th rated prospect and a sixth-round pick. The Colts 2020 NFL Draft grade takes a hit for this one."

    Which begs the question why sign him then. We could of just stuck with Jacoby and let Eason compete for the job with him.  

    Well for one, Rivers was signed before the draft so well before we had Eason.  For two, you don't want to count on a 4th round rookie QB for primary backup.  For three, if we didn't sign a QB and went into this season with the intention of starting Brissett at QB, the fans would have rioted.


    I swear, there is absolutely no pleasing some people (not you, neccessarily) unless we go 16-0 and bring home the Lombardi.  Even then, I'm pretty sure a few people would complain that we didn't run it enough or we allowed too many yards.  Exhausting.

    My boy Blackmon put together a nice game today. Several breakups and a pick.

    Yeah, I'm all on the Blackmon hype train. He may be my favorite to watch so far this year. Just making big time,  well-timed, plays and hitting HARD. Love it.

    I expect him to be back in a similar fashion to how we handled Phillip Walker several years ago. Release him and get him back on the roster depending on whether we have any immediate need this current week for another position(with WR getting hit with injuries we need more WRs these days it seems)


    edit: well, that of course is unless he's done something stupid behind the scenes to lose Reich and Ballard's trust.

  11. Titans vs Steelers

    Vikings vs Texans


    AFCS definitely needs to keep an eye on this. I wonder if they'd plan to keep the game schedule but force the Steelers to work remote until TEN can return, so as not to gain an insurmountable advantage. Same with the Texans if the Vikings ended up getting exposed by TEN as well.


    Busy week ahead.

    Sarcasm aside, and I’ve said it before, I think there is a strangely large number of people on this board that don’t understand the difference between constructive and destructive criticism.


    Are there doom and gloom’ers? Sure. But don’t lump everyone who points out areas needed to improve into that category.

    Of course there's a difference. In the JT thread you can find me agreeing with some of Nickster's criticism on him and taking his side when people wanted to call him a troll for daring to post something that wasn't overwhelmingly positive.


    The fact is that there's MUCH more activity on this board when things go wrong than there is when things go right. And even when things go right, plenty of people are quicker to dismiss it.


    There's a nice chunk of posters here that are only happy when they're upset.  Their posts are not constructive and amount to basically saying ir implying that players, coaches, scouts, and management are * because of impossible standards. THAT is who my post was geared toward. Not those who actually provide value to the forum.

    Based off of their career stats, it's hard to choose who I'd rather the Colts face.


    Pass completions

    Foles - 61.8%

    Trubs - 63.1%



    Foles - 74/36

    Trubs - 54/32



    Foles - 88.3

    Trubs - 85.9



    Foles - 226/22

    Trubs - 26-18



    Damn... Foles is a freakin winner.

    Okay, I’m not one for dramatics. I think JT will be a great player for us.
    But I swear sometimes I feel like I’m watching T.Rich run into the path of most resistance lol dude likes contact for sure.  Unlike T. Rich, he always seems to get positive yardage.

    I got that thought only on that 1 run where he was determined to find a way through the backs of his linemen, lol.  But I've already seen this take from several Colts fans on twitter and it's asinine.  T-Rich was a 3rd overall pick with a full season of experience as the focal point of an offense when he came here.  Taylor just played in his 3rd game (2nd start).  That wasn't a good play by him, but I don't think there's any need for T-Rich level concerns.

  15. Sshhhh.  Judging from the comments around here we're still terrible no matter what because of our schedule.  We blew the Jags game so our entire season is lost, Frank is an *, and Ballard likes the smell of his own farts.  TY is decrepit, our OL is bottom 5, and Taylor/Pittman are massive busts.  Did you know our opponents combined record is 1-8?  F'n Embarrassing!  *kicks trash can*
