    It's humorous that so many people on here are mad at this guy for putting down Luck. Then they trash Bortles like crazy.

    Stephen Holder leaving the IndyStar

    That may be true, but I still haven't seen any real accomplishments. I don't know who he is, so maybe I should remove myself from this conversation.

    Stephen Holder leaving the IndyStar

    "Proud of what we accomplished"? What did he accomplish in 5 years?

    Le'Veon Bell Lurking

    I don't think he is a cancer. He hasn't impacted other players on the team. It's not like he is a TO type of player.

    Any traction for Khalil Mack?

    We are both correct on this. He made the trade because he knew he was going to get Chubb or Nelson at #6. He would also pick up additional picks. It was a very smart move. I can't see him giving too many picks, but giving up a probably 1st round pick in the teens and a couple other pieces would be OK for a player of Macks caliber. I still don't see it happening, but it is fun to think about.

    He gave up the chance to draft Chubb because he wanted Nelson anyway. Giving up a 1st for Mack is an easy choice. Giving up two 1sts would be the hard choice.

    I always thought you give up a 1st rounder in a heartbeat if it lands you a proven player. A 1st round pick gives a team about a 50% chance of getting a good player. Much less of getting a player of Macks quality.

    Actually this may be the best time for the Colts to "break the bank". They have cap space and draft picks. They need help at the position. I've seen so many people on here talk about the Colts going 10-6 or better with Luck this season. No need to wait.

    I'd like to see a deal made. He could bring the attitude we need on this defense.
  10. I just ask because I seen an article https://sports.yahoo.com/m/df761ef7-c278-3f42-a2bf-42a5bb4b887b/ss_a-trade-for-khalil-mack.html It likely can go without saying what type of an impact Mack would bring to the Colts defensive line and defensive unit as a whole. The No. 5 overall pick from the 2014 NFL Draft would bring elite production to a unit that has needed it desperately for years. Since entering the league in 2014, Mack has started every game for the Raiders. In those 64 games, Mack has recorded 40.5 sacks, 11 passes defended and nine forced fumbles. Mack, 27, would also be a perfect fit for the new defensive scheme the Colts are running under new coordinator Matt Eberflus. A scheme that puts heavy emphasis on the defensive line getting pressure on the quarterback, Mack would fit in perfectly. While Colts fans could daydream all day about Mack suiting up in Colts blue, the price is what is likely keeping most teams out of the running in a trade for the elite pass rusher. With Mack still in his prime, the Raiders are likely going to want one or two first-round picks and/or a player they could plug in with upside in exchange for the Buffalo product. The Colts do have some draft capital they could swing the Raiders way. They also have some young players with some upside to bargain with if they don’t feel comfortable giving away two future first-round picks. With a first-round pick and a player like Tarell Basham or Quincy Wilson, it might be enough to intrigue the Raiders. Having Mack in his prime with the upside of the younger players in the pass rush would certainly be exciting. Ballard has put a lot of emphasis on the draft for the current rebuild, especially when it comes to constructing the defensive line, but the Colts would be getting consistent elite production from Mack. The other problem teams face with Mack’s situation is the root of his current holdout. He wants more money from the Raiders, and the Colts are one of the few teams that could give him what he desires. The Colts are among the teams with the most salary cap space entering the regular season so they would easily be able to give Mack the multi-year deal he is seeking in the first place. All of this is great for discussion, but it is highly unlikely the Colts make a move of this magnitude. Ballard believes in building the roster and the locker room with the majority of players brought in through the draft. That isn’t to say it is impossible. The league is unpredictable, and if Ballard feels it would work out in the long run, then there is a chance he pulls the trigger. But the likelihood is that the Colts stand pat, leaving Indy fans only to wonder what Mack would look like coming off the edge at Lucas Oil Stadium.

    Manning brought in lots of Indy band wagoners, remember?

    Thoughts after a Half

    Rogers needs to learn to run for the first down marker. It was disappointing when he ran out of bounds on third down.

    Collts @ Seahawks Preseason Game Night Thread

    Team looks good. Defense doesn't look great. Hopefully they improve, but I think itll be a liability all year.

    I thought the Browns had a chance at winning 7-8 games this season. They were not as bad as their record. Their defense is young and talented. I think Myles Garrett has a strong year. I thought they had a very good WR group with Gordon, Landry, Callaway and Coleman. A very good RB trio in Johnson, Hyde and Chubb. With Tyrod Taylor managing the offense, I thought they were much improved. and then they showed their Browns colors again...... Gordon is a no show at camp. Callaway got busted without a license, with guns and with drugs. For some reason they trade Coleman for a 2020 7th round pick.
