  1. I didn't see another thread on this subject. I know it was mentioned about his kickoff one one of the Colt new stories. About his kickoffs. Does not see to take a running start to make a power kick out of the end zone. Makes short stepped kick to the corner of the endzone, is good at it as it has hang time and almost force the returner to catch it at about the 5 yard line, let do some stops inisde the 20 and LB Speed made at kickoff stop at the 10. Very innovative and soon other teams may copy cat league it. The returner takes a receiver if he does not catch because it could bounce back
  2. What I'm impressed about Metcalf who I also liked, is he is always a threat to go deep and does make plays deep. That opens up the running game and underneath passing routes for the other receivers. I like Pittman, although he also had an unfortunate injury. I think Ballard drafted Pittman in response to his regret on passing on both AJ Brown and DK Metcalf. He had an opportunity to draft either or imagine both WR's with players who are not playing much. I do wish P. Campbell and speedy recover and long career though.
  3. I'm an old guy and I remember him and was watching the game live when he got hurt on a tackle by CB Kermit Alexander of the 49ers, a hit at the knee. He was my idle and a great breakaway threat RB. I think he was averaging 6.2 yards per carry at the time of injury, having a great year. I was a Baltimore Colt fan and we beat the Bears 28-7, the Bears 7 points was the highlight run they always show of him, he was trapped on an end run by a few Colt defenders and he cut inside of Bubba Smith and was off the races on a long TD run. He cut back ability the best I've ever see, was smooth and ha
  4. Good analysis. I'm also wondering if teams are looking at how Drew Brees picked us apart last year with only one incompletion. Minshew did similar with only one incompletion himself. Is the defensive scheme part of the problem. I would think Coach Reich as ex-QB/Offensive Coordinator would see a flaw in our defensive scheme if we do have one?
  5. One positive for Day, although he has been hurt during training camp. He was good enough to be the starting DT in last years Super Bowl, and had his fair share of reps during the game. A couple other factors, he and Buckner are familiar with each other and Day is a local product who grew up a big time Colt fan.
  6. The Steelers have pretty much owned us which is dissapointing. The Harbaugh to Aaron Bailey Hail Mary that rolled of Bailey's stomach and Coryatt missed interception which would have won the game, That was rough, great game in a losing effort. Nick Harper, not taking the fumble return to outside so Roethlisberger would not have been able to catch was another tough loss. Last years regular season loss hurt to and had big time negative playoff implications for us. The planets was aligned for us to win and we still loss. Roethlisberger was out. Vinatieri mis
  7. I think TY, Campbell, and Pittman are locks at the 1-3 WR. I like Pascal at #4. There will be quality competition for the #5 WR between Marcus Robinson, Fountain, Rogers, others. Robinson is pretty solid veteran. Fountain was have a very good pre-season, making that 2nd year jump, until he had that unfortunate injury in the last pre-season game last year. Hope Rivers can develop a prior basketball player to TE relationship, is liking Antonio Gates, would not expect that great of a success but something to that effect. I like Wilkins at our #3 RB, he is a competito
  8. I met Mr. Warford at the airport in American Samoa a few years ago, waiting for our flight to Hawaii. Malcom Floyd WR for the Chargers was also there but they were not together. Anyway, I did get to speak with both of them briefly, very respectful young men, referring to me as Sir, and they said they were in American Samoa to see their mothers. If we sign him, it would help ensure our OL is a strength, now that our skill positions looks promising. I was a little familiar with Warford, being a 3rd round draft choice of Detroit, kind of wanting the Colts to draft him at the time.
  9. I really getting sick and tired of losing to the Steelers, to include games we should win. Last years Vinatieri missed FG loss at the end of the game. Has significant negative playoff implications for us. Nick Harper's fumble return fiasco, should have taken it outside Harbaugh to Aaron Bailey almost last second TD catch. Q Coryatt could have intercepted and return for a TD to seal the game, Just saying and letting off steam. Lets kick some Steeler but this year and from now on. Its a new era. Back to the schedule, we play who they say we play, and we need b
  10. Hot Rod. I like Chase and felt a lot more comfortable with PAT's with him over V. he report is Hot Rod has a stronger leg, for the 50 yard plus kicks. Advantage Hot Rod Kendall Coleman, working with Robert Mathis is an advantage with his endorsement O'Donnell. Good size, with a wrestling background, Canadian All-Star The next few are interesting. Wellington is just a good versatile football player. Wonder if the Colts was considering drafting him over Glasgow, similar size at the same position. Played high school QB, RB, Defens
  11. It seemed Coach Reich felt Pittman was the best WR in the draft, and said this a month prior to the draft, not after the draft just because we drafted him. I think it showed March 29 as the date he was saying how good Pittman was. Must have been classified Colt video, held until after the draft.
  12. I thought I read that he was a Champion wrestler which would serve him as a offensive lineman. Also, that he pitched in a Triple A level baseball game. Has talent, maybe a diamond in the rough as a back-up OT and who knows in 2-3 years? Has the prerequisite size 6-6, 315.
  13. I see that he is light at 170 lbs but was happy to see he ran the 40 in 4.28. Has ball skills, is an interceptor. Can be a Dime or Nickel back but perhaps the Colts leadership really wanted him for his kickoff and punt return skills.
  14. As mentioned earlier, can draft players in the late round verses the risk unable to sign them as a UDFA, competing with the other 31 teams. We have a history of signing 15-20 UDFA, with 2-3 typically making the final cut or being placed on the practice squad.
  15. Watching the Chad Kelley video, coming fro Ole Miss, looks like his 2 WR's may been underclassman A.J Brown and D.K Metcalf. He did have some nice throws though, after all it is highlights. I'm OK going with Phillip Rivers, Jacob Eason, and Chad Kelley. Nothing personal against Brissett but it is a business and he is taking a lot of salary cap space for which he could sign another free agent. It looks like Irsay, Ballard, and Reich is going all in this year and I like it.
