  1. I’ve been very high on what he showed us along with his draft profile. The head is his downfall. He has stayed clear of any issues since arriving to Indy. 100% agree. Skill level was NOT in question as to his draft pick status, it was all his behavior. His childish behaviors were so bad that all his positives were negated. So far at colts headquarters, he has seemingly been a Boy Scout and he flashed plenty in the preseason that we saw. I honestly believe he has a legit shot to take the reigns. Maybe he gets another season under A true NFL professional like Rivers and then he gets his shot. As another poster said, the draft will provide insight into what this team thinks of Kelly.
  2. Maybe his additions will give the locker room that “friction” he felt was needed and ready for now.
  3. What would be an intriguing set of draft picks would be get Kmet and then taking Claypool. Two bigger bodies at different positions but could be one heck of a matchup in the redzone packages. I’d like to take a prospect to work into the LT spot in 2 seasons or be capable to hold the spot for a game or two if the injury bug catches us. After the 3rd round, just fill in with potential depth and hopeful starters a few seasons from now at any spot.
  4. Welcome to the board Chris. Don’t hurt yourself patting yourself on the back. I definitely don’t dislike you, I think it’s fair to question some of your moves though. Nobody is perfect. Event the great BB. It’s all good though
  5. I’m not sure if any team would do it or would we do it but if a team drafting in the lower 50’s came knocking, would you swap #34 for their #2 and next years 1? We still net our starting 3tech and we have pick 44 so it’s not like we would starve our draft picks. It makes it interesting for draft capital next season just in case our QB goes really sideways and we need to try to move up for one of those top QB’s. I just don’t know if another team would give up that much to move up to the top of round 2?
  6. Listen oh superior one, get over yourself and move on. There was plenty, I mean plenty of posters that felt at the beginning of the 2019 season when we had Cain returning, we had TY, we signed Funch, we had Fountain who was getting tons of praise and we had Ebron to pair up with Luck. There were lots that had much enthusiasm, it could be YOU didn’t think that way and YOUR memory is clouded. god people like you disgust me. I’ll add you to the blocked list so that I don’t get banned by ripping into your belittling posts.
  7. I think that is inaccurate. I think CB said this kid was as talented as any 1st rd kid but needed much more polishing. If he was able to reach that potential, he was a high ceiling kid. That doesn’t sound like an expected 4 or 5 guy to me. Inman can probably be had about at any time. He seems to be either a Charger or a Colt option. He was steady and reliable, not taking over any games but I like him for just a “do your job” kind of guy and everyone thought we had a top 5 WR stable before the season started last year too. Not all things are as they seem in the nfl. Because these too have tremendous talent. None of the 2020 top draft prospects have done squat yet either and how many people are salivating over certain prospects? Because they have tremendous upside. If that is what we go into the year with and they are healthy, I’m good with that group. Draft the receiver TE and weapons are going to be plenty for Rivers.
  8. Unfortunately, CB is the GM and gets the credit and the criticism. He made a wrong calculation based on having tons more info and evaluation effort than everyone here. His criticism of this is real and it is valid. He doesn’t get a pass just because some of the internet GM’s agreed with it. To be fair, I liked JB and thought he had potential but I also think the deal wasn’t needed at the time, especially how it’s structured. He gave up way more than he needed to for this deal.
  9. They may draft, get another UDFA and keep Rivers, JB and CK but only 2 of these are making it the 53. I’d be extremely surprised if they carry 3 QB’s into the regular season this year. Imho, if they have any considerations to having Kelly possibly becoming a future starter here, it would seem very likely that Kelly would make the roster over JB as he has more upside than JB and he is equal in talent to any of the guys not ranked 1-2 and maybe #3 guy at best. Again, Kelly’s issues were off field and behavior. There is no reason to believe that Kelly can’t move beyond those issues and develop as a successful QB, albeit probably not a star. it’s fun to speculate right on what we think will happen however no option or opinion is wrong with the current info we have.
  10. You can absolutely say this very same thing about a first round draft pick QB this year as well. Until the draft pick were to get any NFL playing time, Kelly has already done more than a pick at this point. He has been in the system of nfl camp time and through a couple seasons. He knows exactly what to expect and how to prepare. So Kelly is every bit in play at this point until the team decides to part ways with him. nobody here knows what CB has up his sleeve for QB. JB could be in play for back up (at 21 million yikes) or he could be trade bait up till the season starts or even after I suppose. Team could also wait out the deadline to trade him to save cap space or just outright cut him at the last minute too and save cap space. Idk. Team could plan on Kelly getting the back up spot for this season, mentored by Rivers and then see if he is capable of staying out of trouble and doing all the things asked of him and put in play as next seasons starter or if Rivers goes down, can he be ready at all times to be the step in guy? Or he it’s possible the team truly want JB as the back up and Kelly is traded/cut and they look at the draft. Lots of ways the Colts could go here. We have zero idea, only our own guesses.
  11. No distain whatsoever. So if you and some others took it that way, sorry. I’ll be sure to point out that CB has cured the corona virus in my next posts so everyone can feel that it’s a more positive post. It’s clear here by the more softer kids on the forum that pointing out issues that are negative about CB, that isn’t tolerated here. last post in this thread for me. Maybe that will help others sleep better.
  12. I thought I made it clear in the contrast of how each GM had their area of failure. It missed its intended mark, my bad. as for CB, I’ve not been a basher at all of him. I am currently questioning his handling of the QB situation since he arrived, that included his year 1 with Tolzein and then the rush to get JB, which was about all you could do at that point of the season. I then again have criticized his move to the 2 year deal but I’ve also pointed out along the thread that it hasn’t broken the back of the team but I felt it was highly unnecessary at that time to make it a 2 year gamble. Then the Hoyer deal. I mean if criticizing those moves aren’t allowed, what good is having a forum of different ideas? CB has some warts, the question is reasonable to ask, is CB getting overhyped to a degree for coming in and doing something’s well right after a terrible GM left? I mean, everyone would have looked like a Cinderella after a Grigson like figure got the boot. Time will grade his moves in the near future. If he flails on finding a solid QB for the future, I don’t think just contending for playoff slots will give him Polian tenure, he will get replaced if he isn’t finding good success in the playoffs and winning a championship. as for being sensitive of you being sensitive to me, well now your being sensitive to my sensitivity to your sensitivity. So by default, I win the argument lol.
  13. It would buy them 1 year, 1! Could have done the exact same thing under your theory and just tagged him and paid the same over the 2 seasons. He took risk, gambled and lost that bet. Again, didn’t cripple the team, just has not managed the QB spot well since arriving. Luck threw the curve ball and CB whiffed on that challenge. He has certainly hit homers on other aspects, it’s just this has been his area of concern(QB), just like it was Grigsons flaw (one of many) Is that he didn’t fix the oline ( and for those lacking comprehension skills, CB’s issues aren’t the oline).
  14. If he played as well as you hoped in giving him the nice contract, wouldn’t you want him signed into a new 5 year contract? It was an early offering of two years, didn’t need to do it but it wasn’t crippling to the team, it was just unnecessary
  15. Exactly!! Just because I’ve pointed out where I’ve seen flaws, it is posted nowhere in my post that says he is awful, he should be fired or I wished we had Grigson back. I’m not a rah rah guy and dont paint with rainbow colors. I know it was a long post but to the couple of posters who read the post and then felt it stated he didn’t fix the oline or that he sucks, can’t comprehend what they read. They’ve predetermined that it’s not fair to say anything negative about CB or they don’t care for this posters style so it’s automatically a post they won’t like. I’m broad shouldered. I’ll survive that lol. And I do love the fact that he has finally come in with that mindset of fixing the center of the lines first. Best thing that could have happened to the team. If he gets the QB spot right soon, this team is in good shape going forward. The QB spot is what makes or breaks GM’s for the most part though. Get a great one, you make it easier to build the rest. Miss it a couple times and you aren’t going to be in the playoffs consistently and no chance at the SB and that’s how teams eventually get graded on and job security. Unless you’re Jerry Jones and own the team and act as GM too, the owner is gonna look for a new visionary to build that SB winning formula.
