  1. I'd be shocked if we gave Philly a pick for Ertz. It's not a move I want to see happen. Ballard giving up another pick seems high unlikely. I guess we could be in play if we swapped players or if he is released.
  2. Epic overraction to not signing anyone when the offseason is a few days old. We have many more days to sign FA's then there is the draft and then teams will trim rosters to 53. These three areas is where we have done our work since Ballard has been in charge. Has Ballard ever signed a free agent in the first 3 days? We will be a better team. As NCF pointed out the young guys will be improved. We will get Turay back from injury. Tell back from opting out. I think we have found our QB for the foreseeable future that alone prevents failure. The offseason has just started. We will sign good players that fit what we are trying to do guaranteed
  3. I think you are missing Chucklez point it IS unprecedented for a RB to come back even close to his former self after an achilles injury. I made the same point when Vick Ballard blew his achilles. Here is an article that explains further. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.nfl.com/_amp/achilles-tendon-tear-a-death-knell-for-running-backs-0ap1000000224126&ved=2ahUKEwjDrNXv_IHuAhXEo54KHeZsDiAQFjAAegQIARAB&usg=AOvVaw2guxzHikpv01xk2wTD84n7&ampcf=1
  4. Oregon has given us Akili Smith and Joey Harrington too. It doesn't mean Herbert is going to be a bust.... Dan Fouts was a Duck so there is that
  5. I think you might be on to something. I’m a big Turay fan and injuries are a concern with him. For that reason I’d like to see him play but containing the run certainly hasn’t been his game.
  6. I agree with all the other guys There are others you could argue like Stewart or Muhammad but IMO Turay is as much of a lock as anyone on the DL.
  7. You don’t think Turay is a lock to make the roster? I don’t see a scenario that results in him being cut. The same goes for Rock. We aren’t cutting either of those guys.
  8. Have we seen Fountain back there yet? He returned punts in the East-West game. He was the Offensive MVP of that game.
  9. An Achilles injury has been the kiss of death for RB’s. I’m sure a lot of folks remember Vick Ballard.
  10. I would love to get a link to this mystery article. I follow the Colts and football pretty closely and I sure don’t remember any article ever talking about going with just 4 WR’s on a 53 man roster.
  11. It’s not complete bull there is more to playing D then going after blocks. Myles isn’t strong enough on the glass. He will have games where he gets 3 or 4 boards for the whole game. I’m sorry but an All NBA C has to be able to rebound the ball. That’s the part of his game that frustrates me the most and the big reason I’d be fine moving him if the right deal came along
  12. Milton ran a 4.35 at an NFL Regional Combine then surprisingly didn’t stand on it and ran sub 4.4 at his pro day too. He’s pretty fast.
  13. If NO were to move Jrue because they want to go with the young guys. My guess is when they look at our roster they’ll be looking to fill the hole Davis left at the 5. I think they’d be looking at Turner or Sabonis. The Spurs would need a trade to make room for Bogy. He’s a free agent so they could move DeRozan somewhere else and move in on Bogy.. It’s taken Bogy the better part of two seasons to get comfortable enough here to really play his game. I think he’s going to want to stay in Indy as long as we don’t try to low ball him. He should be our top priority IMO. This is is going to be an interesting off season. We should have the opportunity to make some moves but there will be some tough decisions. I don’t think we can expect Vic to come back and improve the team enough to be contenders. I’d like to see us upgrade PG and find a scorer off the bench. That may not be enough but it’s a start.
  14. I’m not a big fan of trading for Conley. His injury history worries me. I do think PG is the position we must up grade this off season. One would think New Orleans will want to move Jrue. He’s 29 yrs old and doesn’t fit with the youth movement going on down there. I’d love to bring him to Indy to play next to Vic. Theres a rumor that the Spurs want to trade DeRozan for Bogy McDermott and the 18th pick. I am a big Bogy fan but that’s a deal we’d have to take a long look at.
  15. Who said he’s making the roster this year? That’s not what the discussion has been about. The consensus has the PS being the best case scenario
  16. This is a very good point. If you listen to Ballard he talks about the effort it takes to play in our system and the difficulty getting free agents to buy in particularly older vets. That alone makes it very unlikely that Suh plays in Indy.
  17. I agree Farley seems under appreciated on the board at times. Maybe because he was out the last half of the season but when he’s on the field he makes his presence felt. I see a lot of talk about him being a potential cut. I just don’t see that happening.
  18. We know for sure they were not performance enhancing. Although he did pick it up in the playoffs
  19. Curry is 27-1 in the last 28 games he’s played without Durant
  20. I found Ballard’s take on Campbell returning punts interesting. He mentions that he had returned punts early in his time at OSU but I can’t find a record of a punt return. Either way I am excited to see this kid give it a go. He has the tools to be explosive back there I hope he takes to a big time threat in the return game would be awesome
  21. I don’t recall EVERYONE saying RG3 was better then Luck in fact as I recall most felt Luck would be the better pro. There were concerns due to RG3’s style and size that he would not hold up in the NFL. That’s exactly what happened he had one good year then ACL and MCL injuries at the end of his rookie season and he was never healthy again His career was pretty much done after 1 season. Jamarcus Russell was lazy and lacked the motivation and drive to even test his talent on Sunday. He was never successful in the league just stealing money. It’s interesting that you can’t or don’t see the difference. I don’t follow Jameson or the Bucs closely enough to know where he sits with the franchise. If he is in fact released unless he’s done some really dumb stuff off the field someone will give him another chance. If he can’t get it together that’s what is known as a waste of talent.
  22. Seriously Winston hasn’t been much better then Russell? On what planet? I believe Winston won Rookie of the Year and played in the Pro Bowl after his first season. He was the first QB in history to put up back to back 4,000 yard seasons to begin his career and also was the 2nd youngest to 10.000 passing yards. He’s the youngest player in NFL history to pass for 3,000 yards 4,000 yards and 40 tds in a season. He holds other NFL records and has rewritten the Bucs books. His career hit a bump after a shoulder injury in year 3. Then there was the Uber driver situation and suspension that accompanied it last year. He needs to get it together for sure. He hasn’t played a full season in 2 years. I’m not particularly a fan of the guy in Tampa or while he was at FSU. That being said to say he hasn’t been much better then Jamarcus Russell is completely wrong. Winston has shown he has the talent to play in the league.
  23. My thoughts exactly and you hit on the reasons why. NE invested a 1st on Harry plus the guys returning will have Inman battling for one of the last roster spots in that position group. Typically at the back end of your WR group you want a young guy you are bringing along and someone who contributes on ST’s
