  1. This is why we can't have nice things.
  2. This is the last thing I want to see. I'll be cheering HARD for KC today, and hopefully next week too.
  3. As annoying as all these "JB is trash" and "JB is the worst starting QB in the league" posts are, it's equally annoying seeing "JB is perfectly adequate" in every thread, when it's clear that hasn't been the case. I often see you saying how annoying it is seeing every thread turn into a JB Bash thread, but then you continually poke the topic with a stick and get mad when you get the expected response. I'm not sure what you're hoping to accomplish? JB isn't trash. JB isn't necessarily good. He's somewhere in between, which leaves the Colts in QB purgatory, which i
  4. It really is. It's also super interesting because there ARE so many different ways we can go at the most important position in football. We haven't been in this situation in a very very long time. Some, like myself, became fans after we had already drafted Peyton, so this is the first "real" franchise QB search, since Luck/RG3 was more of a media argument than an actual contest. I'm very excited for the draft season.
  5. I'm as optimistic a fan as anyone, and I'll continue rooting for Jacoby to succeed if he is our starting QB next year. That being said, I think it's clear from the 2 seasons we've seen from him that he is not going to cut it. If he turns it around and has a great year next year, that's awesome... but that'll still be 2 poor seasons and one good one so that'll leave more questions than answers. I think the gist around here is that we're ready to move on to the next chapter, with a legit/fresh franchise QB to lead us. As long as Jacoby is the starter, I fear it will always feel like Andrew's
  6. "Bringing Luck out of retirement" is not a legitimate plan a front office can run with. They have zero control over that. It's not their choice. Ignoring the QB need this year just means we have the same need next year. As nice a thought as it is, there is no way you can actually build your team around the premise that you'll be able to pull someone out of retirement.
  7. Original Model: https://www.drafttek.com/NFL-Trade-Value-Chart.asp?RequestTeam=ind More recent, revised model (looks like it includes premium for the first few picks in the draft) https://www.drafttek.com/NFL-Trade-Value-Chart-Rich-Hill.asp?RequestTeam=ind
  8. "Oh so if we criticize Ballard we're haters? You guys are clowns! Grigson was 11-5 his first 3 seasons! Ballard should have had a HOF caliber person in the wings because he should have known Luck's heart wasn't in it! All Ballard does is trade back instead of picking 100% surefire bonafide STUDS! FACTS! You guys are just so in love with him that you can't even admit he sucks! Ballard needs to go! Pacergeek 2020!"
  9. San Fran being in the NFC and with a coching staff Belichick respected played integral parts in that trade happening. Jimmy had no chance of being traded to the Colts, imo.
  10. Nope. He retired. Compensatory picks are for players that have contracts run out and sign elsewhere. The more they sign for (and play, and produce... there's a specific formula but I don't know what it is) the higher the pick, maxing out after the standard 3rd round ends. Retired players do not count towards compensatory picks.
  11. C'mon man... first rule of the fake punt game... We do NOT talk about the fake punt game.
  12. I really think AC comes back. To me it sounded like he was saying if he wasn't going to play for the Colts, he would think about retiring. Reich and Ballard have made it known how much they want him to come back. QB should come in the draft, if no one is there that they like they could potentially just work on building the roster around whatever future QB they find while letting JB (or CK for the fan club) take us through 2020. I think McLaughlin has done nothing to lose the job and I sure don't see AV coming back. D-Line is a definite need, one that Ballard has specifically mentioned. C
  13. To be fair... Donald Duck at QB would definitely put butts in the seats. I'd definitely make the trip to see the season opener (or even preseason) to see that.
  14. I very much appreciate the clarity. I was super confused for a sec. Talk about overkill, haha! I think you won't find too many that disagree with OL depth needing to be addressed. Not crazy at all!
  15. I agree with this. It has to be a QB they love though. If Jordan Love, or Herbert, or Eason is available, and they don't take that guy, then it's pretty clear they don't view that guy as franchise material. In which case, taking a Kinlaw, or CB, or OT, or WR, or whatever, is understandable. The answers won't come until 2 or 3 years after as far as if it was worth it.
  16. There really is just a few. They are just a very vocal minority. They tend to post in almost every thread so it makes it seem like they are more numerous than they are.
  17. Yeah, going into this season and throughout the majority of it, Jeudy was viewed as the clear cut #1 WR in this class. CeeDee has done an amazing job getting his name up there in that tier, and has passed him in many people's view. Can't really go wrong with either, though, I don't think.
  18. Imagine thinking TY Hilton isn't a #1 receiver. Yikes. He is aging and we do need more talent at WR, nut I don't know what universe it's in that TY hasn't proven himself as a #1
  19. Then people would get mad about that. He's a player's coach and he's going to publicly back his players, always. As he should. Doesn't mean they won't look to upgrade. Why telegraph your moves to the rest of the league so they can counteract?
  20. The 5-2 start had people moving their targets.
  21. Colts coming to Chicago. Nice. Hopefully it's an early in the season game so I don't freeze to death, lol.
  22. Lol, what do you want him to say? "Dude isn't very good. We're definitely going to draft a QB in the first round."
