  1. Man, good catch, I don't know the Chargers well enough to know who their starting lineman were last year I just assumed that @Rackeen305 was accurate but you are absolutely correct. Nice catch Coltup.
  2. I've had 6'5 300+ lb guys roll up my leg. I was never good enough to get paid to play football so I never could retire from it, but I did play after it happened. And you can cry for JB all you want, I'm just going off what he said that he felt he could have come back in that game and then he felt that he could have played the following week as well. No doubt there was some pain but that is a far cry from being injured and it's definitely not a reason for his poor play because he poor play was evident before the Pittsburgh game. The major difference is, in the 2nd half of the season the receivers weren't there to bail him out by picking up yac like they did in the first half of the season before TY got hurt. Lastly I didn't say anything about Rivers oline so I'm not sure what that has to do with anything but you post those players as if they are good, which is funny in and of itself. As far as what WR is better if TY gets hurt, Pascal is better that Williams, Williams is great and running down the field and winning 50/50 balls but he's not a good route runner and his hands are good.
  3. https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/B/BlytAu00.htm This shows he played 8 games for the Colts and started 1.
  4. A few things: One: I try really hard to not get upset about things of which, I have no control. Two: I trust the process of the Colts, meaning if the Colts sign AV then it's because they have tested him and are assured as can be that his issues last year were not because he's lost it, mentally or physically. I don't think they would sign him for sentimental reasons.
  5. People also tend to forget that JB had not really been playing all that well when the Colts were 5-2 and several of us mentioned even before he got "hurt" that DC were going to figure out that he is unwilling or unable to throw the ball deep and will therefore play to take away the short passing game and running game... which is kind of exactly what they did. That is probably because both have proven to be winners, especially in the clutch, AV moreso than Rivers... JB has not proven that in 2 seasons as a starter. See above.
  6. Grigs had his issues but he did help put together a team that went to the AFCCG. So to think they could not have gone to the SB with Manning doesn't make a lot of sense.
  7. Too many people get too wanged about things outside their control. Would I sign AV? Probably not. But on the flip side I will not be upset if he is no longer a Colts nor will I be upset if the Colts sign him to a new contract.
  8. Of course it seemed like it at the time but in hindsight, was it best long term. After Manning left he went to the playoffs 4 straight years went to the SB twice and won one of them. While the Colts have only been to the playoffs 4 times and the future QB upped and quit on the team and left the Colts searching once again for a QB. Again in hindsight it would have been better to keep Manning, trade the #1 pick, go all out in FA like Denver did and looked for a QB after his retirement. There were fans who suggested doing that at the time (I was not one of them) but I remember the discussions.
  9. No reason for that. I started reading the thread, came across your post and responded, then I read the rest of the thread and saw other people had pointed that out. Like I said, my post was not meant to pile on.
  10. Wilson is still listed on the team roster. They usually remove them very quickly if they are released or cut. Just read some of your other posts, not trying to pile on, just an FYI.
  11. Probably will let JB go out for the end of game kneel downs, JB has more mobile knees, it's harder for a near 40 year old to kneel down and get back up.
  12. It was also Nelson's 4th game as a pro and even then, that Clowney beat him a couple of times that game. Here is how Nelson responded later that season. https://twitter.com/i/status/1081718187744550912
  13. I often say on this forum that I'm glad fans do not run the team, thanks for once again reminding me why I say that. Kind of hard to build a team through the draft when the team doesn't resign those building block players.
  14. I'm not sure where the site got his information because he did not perform those drills at the combine nor his proday. But when you watch Clark movement and Cleveland's movement they are nearly identical.
  15. That is tough to tell from watching the games. I will say this, he did not seem like a finisher, once he thought the play was by him he would coast and there were times he seemed lazy if the play was not coming to his size. As far as competitive drive or desire to improve I cannot tell them from watching the game and I would question anyone who claims to be able to do that.
