    Top 5 PFF Colts grades vs Jags

    Great point about Stewart! I was thinking the same thing yesterday

    Holder on Lewis

    Absolutely! It's been a great draft already with two promising prospects that we haven't even seen yet ( Lewis and Caine) at positions we definitely want to upgrade.

    Spotrac ranks Indy's free agency class...#1

    That’s a huge part of it. This is a salary cap league. Nothing gets you in trouble quicker and keeps you in trouble longer than over spending on free agents. as it is now, he picks up a few players for cheap that can help on the field as well as in the locker room, which can’t be dismissed, and still has money to take care of our future resignings as well as money for strategic additions when we are closer to competing for the Super Bowl. In addition we should have two compencitoty picks next year. Well played Mr Ballard!

    The Official Ballard IS Impressing Me Thread

    What a great thread! Thanks for taking the time to do this Trueman! One thing that people are giving him flack for is not being aggressive enough in free agency. However, I think he handled free agency brilliantly. He still got players that improved the team ex. Ebron, Autry, Slausen ( if healthy) even Grant but going into next years off season we will be: 2018 Cap space: 52 million , 4th youngest team  and have two second rounder's as well as a compensatory 4th or 5th as well as possibly a compensatory 6th or 7th. If the goal is building toward a championship in a couple years as opposed to making the team a little better in the short term ( and it should be) then he has positioned us to do just that.

    Colts Vs. Bills Game Day Thread

    We made a deal with them. They could keep Hughes in the game if we could keep Kelvin Shepherd

    Colts Vs. Bills Game Day Thread

    Apparently we can. But taking hindsight out of the equation, the Bills D is very good.

    Leonard - Silver Linings

    What the heck does that mean?

    Quincy Wilson: Practice Dud, Game Stud?

    Just speculation, but I have experienced kids that really think about everything to the point that it slows them down a bit. However, that is the time to be doing that. Then in a game they calm the conscious mind and let their instincts take over. It's that not that uncommon, especially when a player is new or learning a new system.
  11. This is a great pick! The only argument against it is his position. However, given our inability to build an O line and the ramifications there of, I don't know how anyone could not be excited about getting the best interior lineman to come along in 2 decades. As for the idea that Building a Defense is the most important thing a team can do, doesn't it make sense that stopping other teams Defenses is just as important? That being said, no player in this draft is as good at countering the other teams Defense as Nelson.

    Worst Case Scenario

    With those two QB's still on the board we really could get a great return. However, I'm not sure why so few people are on the Fitzpatrick bandwagon. I think he could be every bit the pro that Chub could be. I also like the idea of creating a killer secondary, which would at least give us some kind of identity. g

    Bostic to Steelers

    Well along with our extra 2nd rounder next year we should have at least one comp pick as well, so that's a positive.

    Realistic Trade?

    As TvTurner said He is a little older than ideal ( I thought he was a little younger based on his draft year) but the thing about the O line is we need improvement immediately if we want Luck to have any kind of career longevity

    Realistic Trade?

    Is he injury prone or was he just injured last year? I don't recall him being injured much in the past, but I could be wrong.
