  1. Tucker just hasn't played long enough to be considered the greatest of all time. He is on track though.
  2. Lots depends on Rivers. If he does good and is willing to stay another season, I think that would eliminate the Dak option.
  3. Here is a list of players who have opted out. The site said it was from today but doesn't include Tell and Milligan. Arizona Cardinals Marcus Gilbert, OT Atlanta Falcons - Baltimore Ravens Andre Smith, OT De'Anthony Thomas, WR Buffalo Bills E.J. Gaines, CB Star Lotulelei, DT Carolina Panthers Christian Miller, OLB Jordan Mack, LB Cincinnati Bengals Isaiah Prince, OT Josh Tupou, DT Chicago Bears Jordan Lucas, S Eddie Goldman, DT Cleveland Browns Colby Gossett, G Andrew Billings, DT Drew Forbes, G Drake Dorbeck, OT Dallas Cowboys Jamize Olawale, FB Stephen Guidry, WR Maurice Canady, CB Denver Broncos Ja'Wuan James, OT Kyle Peko, DT Detroit Lions Geronimo Allison, WR John Atkins, DT Green Bay Packers Devin Funchess, WR Houston Texans Eddie Vanderdoes, DT Indianapolis Colts Skai Moore, LB Kansas City Chiefs Damien Williams, RB Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, G Las Vegas Raiders Ukeme Eligwe, LB D.J. Killings, DB Jeremiah Valoaga, DE Los Angeles Chargers - Los Angeles Rams Chandler Brewer, OT Jacksonville Jaguars Lerentee McCray, DE/LB Al Woods, DT Miami Dolphins Albert Wilson, WR Allen Hurns, WR Minnesota Viking Michael Pierce, DT New England Patriots Matt LaCosse, TE Marqise Lee, WR Patrick Chung, S Dont'a Hightower, LB Brandon Bolden, RB Marcus Cannon, OT Danny Vitale, FB Najee Toran, OL New Orleans Saints Cole Wick, TE Jason Vander Laan, TE New York Giants Da'Mari Scott, WR Nate Solder, LT New York Jets C.J. Mosley, LB Leo Koloamatangi, OL Philadelphia Eagles Marquise Goodwin, WR San Francisco 49ers Travis Benjamin, WR Seattle Seahawks Chance Warmack, G Pittsburgh Steelers - Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Tennessee Titans Anthony McKinney, OL Washington Football Team Josh Harvey-Clemons, LB Caleb Brantley, DL Free agents Larry Warford, G
  4. Being frustrated as a fan is different than being frustrated at the player himself. I get frusterated when a player gets injured. It's no fault of the player, but still frustrated. If this season happens, the Colts could do really well, so losing a good player is frustrating to me.
  5. I think this ends his NFL career. He was a backup or practice squad quality player who will now be taking a season off. Be tough to sign with another team.
  6. I want to agree, but he is very good when he plays and that trumps most other things. If this current team plays as well as most think it will and then Rivers retires after this season, plugging Luck in would keep the train moving.
  7. He's got plenty of money. I think the only way he would come back is if he had the itch to play and thought he could win. Maybe if Rivers and the Colts have a good season the chance at winning would be there. Very doubtful that he ever plays again. I'd give it a 10% chance.
  8. Reich intends to pit the two against one another in what many would consider Vinatieri's specialty: high-stress situations. The Colts coach explained that he will do his best to fabricate those situations during and after practice. One can be sure that without the added test of preseason games, the kickers' performance during these high-stress situations will go a long way in determining who wins the competition. “They'll get all of their normal routines," Reich said. "But as a team, we'll create more team atmosphere, team kicking drills that will be heightened and weighted more heavily in the kicking competition." Though Reich didn’t submit a “favorite” to win the battle, McLaughlin surely has the leg up in that he’s a somewhat proven NFL commodity. Last season, the undrafted free agent performed admirably in what amounted to a four-game audition with the Colts after Vinatieri succumbed to injury. Arriving in Indianapolis in the high-pressure role of replacing the kicker many consider the greatest of all time, McLaughlin drilled 5-of-6 field goals and all 11 of his extra points in those games. His performance in Vinatieri’s stead earned him a one-year contract with the Colts immediately following the season. Of course, the man they call “Hot Rod” brings an impressive resume to the battle as well. During four years at SEC powerhouse Georgia, Blankenship was a model of accuracy and consistency. He connected on all 200 of his extra points and finished his Bulldog career an 82.5% field goal kicker and the school’s all-time leading scorer. For his efforts -- and to keep him away from other teams -- the Colts handed Blankenship a $20,000 signing bonus, a hefty number among undrafted free agents. Despite McLaughlin’s incumbent status, Blankenship’s price tag and Reich comments foretell would should be an equal and open competition for the job. https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/nfl/colts/2020/07/29/colts-vinatieri-era-indy-seemingly-over-mclaughlin-blankenship-battle-job/5536851002/
  9. I disagree. I think the money Irsay gave him would be enough for him to stay loyal. Also, the Colts strong O-line would be enticing. A strong running game would be nice as well.
  10. It would be great, but I don't see it happening.
  11. I disagree with that. He has the same flaws as when he came out of college. He hasn't improved those flaws. he's pretty much a .500 starter which is great for a backup.
  12. I think you are correct. I'm sure Ballard seen some potential of him making a good starter, but that is just potential.
  13. I hope he ends up jealous of Rivers and the great O-line and running game he gets to play with.
  14. Good analogy. I would add to it: Forklift driver "A" had been a supervisor for a couple years and was demoted because he wasn't that good at it. So he has experience and would make the transition into management a little easier, but his potential is limited to being a mediocre supervisor. Forklift driver "B" was recently hired with being a supervisor in mind.
  15. I agree, but I think the loss of "aggression" was trumped by Nelson and Smith being better and the line gelling.
