  1. Perhaps. Although in college you have to coach and travel the country recruiting, text/call high school kids 24/7, etc. Probably a wash there. Pressure in college, especially at a place like Iowa State, is possibly not as great.
  2. Source? Tried searching both Google and Twitter and couldn't find anything. Thanks in advance.
  3. Very nice mock! How do you feel about Jerry Tillery as a 3-tech if he's around and Wilkins is not? His speed, ability to disrupt, and interior-pass rushing skills would be a perfect fit for this scheme. He has tremendous size and length, as well. Ballard really likes length.

    What the colts need to contend in 2019

    I've been banging the drum for Jerry Tillery at 3-tech. Dude took over games this year and his body type/speed/motor are literally a perfect, glass slipper fit for this defensive scheme. He'll be around in the mid-20s in the first round.
  5. Every NFL team practices to music. It provides juice. It also helps to simulate noise. There are several reasons the Colts lost today. Dancing last Saturday and on Wednesday aren't even remotely close to being on the list. Also, let's please not lose sight of the fact that nobody expected this team to make the playoffs, let alone win a road playoff game, in the second year (first year with a new coaching staff) of a major rebuild, playing with one of the youngest (if not the youngest) rosters in the NFL.

    Vinny

    He's 100% done. He doesn't want to come back.

    Vinny

    Why did you respond with a "confused" response to my initial question? That has me confused.

    Vinny

    1-year deal or time to sign/draft a young placekicker? I’m inclined to bring him back, if he wants to be back. But it’s at the point that he could literally lose “it” at any moment. Also, although this is a somber topic, Vinny is the GOAT.

    Colts 2019 WR's

    He catches the football consistently as a punt returner. We’ve struggled mightily with that for years prior to Chester. The punt/kick return game is dead in the NFL.

    Colts 2019 WR's

    Agree with everything except replace Fountain with Rogers. He’s a solid returner and has made big plays down the stretch.
  11. I rarely get the chance to say I’m “amazed” by what someone has done and truly mean it. I am amazed by what Luck has done this year.

    Tuesday injury report

    Because it's a walkthrough, they can only "estimate" a player's readiness. The fact that he was able to be estimated as a LP is a very encouraging sign. He's coming off a very long layoff with a hamstring. The Texans only had a walkthrough as well. I'll be curious to see how he does once the "real" practices hit. O'Brien seems very cautious with his outlook.

    Yeah, most of the mistakes I saw from Adams and Odum yesterday were the result of poor fundamentals and lack of discipline (including lack of eye discipline). Adams just gets eaten up by any sort of misdirection. Then again, so does our entire LB corps. That's the one thing the Giants, and to an extent, the Ttitans, have done recently to try to take advantage of the defense's speed and aggressiveness. Use that speed and aggressiveness to get guys out of position in a hurry. Create cutback lanes and awkward tackling angles. Speaking of angles, Odum takes some "Ole!" angles. I'm just extremely happy that these minor issues are what I'm whining about this time of year, relative to the Colts. #Blessed

    I really don't consider guys that have been through 17 weeks of practice and games rookies anymore. Not trying to sound like a jerk, but that's kind of a weak excuse at this point.
