  1. Agree with points made, but wanted to add Ryan Kelly drafted 1st round by Grigson.
  2. How about we list the Colts impactful defensive players since Ballard has been here, and how they were acquired? I'll start it: Leonard -Draft Buckner - Trade Moore - Signed off waivers Autry - Free Agent Houston - Free Agent Maybe I'm missing some (I'm sure I am), so please chime in! Whoever is scouting college defensive players has had a rough 5 years.
  3. I read the title and thought "Wentz's fault? You have got to be kidding me!" Turns out, you were.
  4. With Watson - 4 games Without Watson - close your eyes, and what do you see?
  5. We can rebuild him. We have the technology..
  6. Mods, can we make this a “poll question?”
  7. Not bad. Now if they could just fix what's on the inside of the uniforms. Ba dum tss, I'll be here all week.
  8. They did have a choice. Call his bluff or trade him.
  9. Ballard is not infallible, but his building for sustained, long term success is what I want from my team's GM. The last time the Bucs won the Super Bowl (2002), they followed it up with: 18 years without winning a playoff game only making the playoffs twice (including 12 straight years without making playoffs) having a winning record just 5 times, with 3 of those being 9-7. Maybe this time it will be different for the Bucs, maybe not. But if that's what lies between Super Bowl wins, then you can have it. I'll sit in the section with Four2itus, chad72, Fluke_33 and Lucky Colts Fan, and enjoy being entertained by meaningful games almost every year.
  10. I agree with paragraphs two and three. The first paragraph is really two other completely different situations. I won’t delve into the Lebron/NBA part. The Chiefs had their star QB still on his rookie contract, similar to when Seahawks and Eagles won their SB’s.
  11. The Saints won the Super Bowl in Brees 4th year. The Packers won the Super Bowl in White's 4th year. The Broncos won the Super Bowl in Peyton's 4th year. Brady - we know how that turned out. Moral of the story, if you sign the biggest name free agent, you better be patient waiting for your Super Bowl ring.
  12. So you're saying he could be the "steal" in this years free agent class?
  13. That's awesome. At first I thought it was a Jerome Bettis highlight.
  14. One thing is 100% certain in the NFL...Players will get injured. Depth at as many positions as possible.
  15. I would phrase what Ballard is trying to build as "long term SUSTAINED" success. Not build, have success, drop off, rebuild.
  16. “Look out old Mackey is back”
  17. Under This thread goes at least 3 pages
  18. Yeah, but 9-7 wins this division going away!
  19. A one year prove it deal with the Colts makes perfect sense for both sides. Coming off this type of injury, Mack should be looking at making the most of low volume carries. He doesn't need to put up numbers. His goal is to prove to the league that he still has that burst. Year 2 after the injury, assuming year 1 goes well, is when he would/could once again become the feature back on a team. For the Colts, having someone besides Hines and Wilkins to share duties to keep JT fresh for the playoffs, would be a good thing too. A 17 game season adds to that need as well.
  20. I'd prefer Wentz not even ask for it. Let Pittman offer it. If Pitt doesn't offer it up, don't bring it up and pick another number.
  21. Thinking way out of the box: Keep the season at 16 games. Top 8 in each conference make the playoffs for Super Bowl. Bottom 8 in each conference have a playoff for draft position. This adds 15 games to the schedule (as opposed to 16 with a 17 game schedule). It also eliminates tanking and gives all non-playoff teams a chance to improve their draft position by winning, not losing. It provides incentive for teams out of the playoff race to win their remaining regular season games, since the better record you finish with, the lower seed you play in the first round of the "draft position playoff."
  22. We have the most likeable GM in the league. The best? That simply can't be proven yet. In 4 years as GM his grade is still very much incomplete. He's built a nice roster, but to be the best he needs the three biggest impact positions to be solidified. QB - Wentz needs to return to form WR - Pittman needs to be a legit #1 DE - Have to find a pass rusher Give me two out of these three, win a division title and/or advance a couple of rounds in the playoffs, and I'll move CB into the "best" GM conversation.
