  1. Rebuilding would happen faster if our second and third round picks from last year would contribute well.

    Quincy Wilson = Bust

    Something I don't understand. Did Ballard draft Wilson knowing he was going to switch to Tampa style zone defense, or were the expectations that Wilson was going to be a man corner like Vontae (VD didn't play zone scheme all that well). Some have suggested that Ballard has been drafting for the switch all along, but the Wilson pick would seem to not support that theory.

    Limiting the big plays and tackling the receiver to not allow YAC are expectations of a zone corner. I'm not sure how much sticky coverage and ball contesting is expected, relative to a man-corner, who can get burned big for YAC or big yardage.

    Colts lead first ejected player...

    Bad technique. He just threw himself into the other player. Could have hurt his neck and the other player if it was a more solid hit. Good call.

    The injury bug strikes a former Colt

    The reason I thought he was gone from the Cards is because I remember thinking they have drafted guys to replace him over the years. Apparently they haven't worked out and AQ still survives.

    Yeah, they were both playing out of position because of Glenn's holdout, and that was the funny part. Meadows did OK at RT and of course Glenn was great at LT, starting when he played there his next year.

    Wasn't it the case Meadows started at T because Glenn held out until October so Ted then put him in at G? LOL.

    Is he still with the Cards?

    OK. The extent of me thinking about this has been limited to the time spent on this thread. There are probably many in the NFL, I just can't think of any. The Colts history of having 1st and 2nd rounders not playing their rookie year then playing well after that certainly isn't very good, except for Wayne..

    Erik Swoope a trade candidate?

    Right. Are other teams going to trade for a rather unknown quantity just because he's having a strong camp. It just seems like Swoope is a Wells favorite.

    Exclude QBs, because they either need some time or have Brett Farve playing in front of them (Aaron Rogers). Bracket was drafted in the 2nd? There are always players that come outta nowhere to beat out the more highly touted players. Generally it seems, good players tend to show themselves early, regardless of draft position. So if first or second rounders struggle to see the field much their rookie season, yes, I think that is cause for some concern. Hey, I never said Wilson was a bust.

    Erik Swoope a trade candidate?

    What did we get for Adongo?, or whomever that tall skinny OLB/DE was that we traded to Dallas. Swoope's value is about 1 round earlier than him. But then again, Adongo was a pass rusher and Swoope is a bit of a one dimensional TE.

    I figured he was gone a long time ago.

    I get that, but you can say that about Melvin too last sping, or any player that blows up a knee this year. I guess I wouldn't use the words crucial for Ballard, as in personally. Maybe important for the Colts. Semantics I guess.

    Quincy Wilson = Bust

    Just reading the headline. I have no idea why anything Wilson does or doesn't do is crucial for Chris Ballard at this point.
