  1. I would not take Zeke if he was given to the Colts. The Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has done back-flips and somersaults to cover up, or smooth over that which could not be covered up, what Zeke has done since he's came into the league. Ballard would not put up with what Zeke has done. If you don't know all the antics Zeke has had off the field, perhaps you should google it, they are quite numerous. Plus the fact that he is still in his rookie contract and crying about the money he's getting? Everyone in the NFL has to get paid by that rookie pay scale. And it's not like he's getting 4th-7th round rookie $, He was drafted top 5, and get's nearly 4 mil this year. Next years 5th year option is nearly 10 mil. Jones has probably paid out all this excess money that Zeke wants, just to keep his off field antics under wraps. Granted, now that he has played 3 years in the NFL, he is allowed to have an extension offered. But generally stars are paid not only for what they bring to the field, but how you represent your team off the field. https://sportsday.dallasnews.com/dallas-cowboys/cowboys/2017/09/16/happen-surprised-ezekiel-elliotts-checkered-past-points-possible-trouble-ahead This 1 single report explains that he has been in at least 4 police reports since 2014. And this report was posted in 2017. His latest incident involved a confrontation with police in May that end with him in hand cuffs! And:----- "The NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell met with Mr. Elliott to reinforce the standards of conduct expected of him and the consequences for failing to meet those standards." https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/cowboys-ezekiel-elliott-avoids-a-suspension-from-the-nfl-after-las-vegas-incident/ Do you really want a player where the Commissioner personally had to tell your player to straighten up,...or else??
  2. This Luck news is really no news IMO. It's just a soft tissue injury, that because he has compensated that specific muscle's workload to another muscle/tendon, that started hurting also. It happens anytime you injure a muscle or tendon, yet still try to work with it. He's now just being cautious, and doesn't want to push himself or the leg, because what happened to his shoulder is still so fresh in his mind. As for the minor injuries to other players,..I say those are absolutely awesome! When was the last time you remember a training camp/off season where no-one who was projected a starter, or fringe starter, ended up going to IR? Most teams have a serious injury or two by now, we've been so lucky. (knock on wood). Really excited for this coming Browns game. Can't wait to see how our defense handles the potentially dynamic offense they have.
  3. I would if we could, but video is forbidden. (the Patriots at the Jet's camp comes to mind)
  4. https://twitter.com/LarraOverton Was hired as her replacement.
  5. 5 years...almost $5 mil...If Luke Rhodes loses his spot,...it'll be to the best LS ever...lol.
  6. Yeah, I have personal interest in Shippy myself. Even if he is slightly undersized for the NT role. He and I have spoken right before the Colts signed him, and have been following him closely ever since.
  7. I know Cann left. But we had this meeting set up 3 months ago prior to her leaving the organization. She kept her word on this, even after she left, she set this up between me and the Colts. Great woman.
  8. I'll be going to a few practice sessions at training camp this year. Any of you going also? I plan on doing some scouting of the team, mostly some of our unknowns, and see if I can get a feel for what we really have out there. I'll be there the 25th, that's the date I'm doing something for a fan that cannot make it to training camp. Caroline Cann and the Colts organization have set something up, so I can do this for that person. While I'm there on that day, I'm hoping to get to speak to a few people, Colts and media both. Any of you have anything specific you'd like me to check on, watch for, or ask if I get the chance? Pretty excited to be able to do this, hope I can make at least this one fan's wish come true! (I'll explain what's going on in that area after it happens. Reason's.)
  9. I'd say that would be impressive, considering Edgerrin James never topped what Marlon Mack did YPC wise last year.
  10. Let me say this, The fact that we can argue that even if Fountain is doing great, but STILL may not make the team, speaks wonders for the scouting dept.
  11. I think our Run defense has stood the real test last year, as holding some of the best running games to minimal stat lines. But this year, we face lesser RB's, and much better QB's and WR's. So that will truly test our DB's. But I feel with a second season in the system, and a better understanding by our young players, they should be up for the task. Especially since I think our run defense is legit, and be able to hold opponents run games in check, and making them go one dimensional, since our offense is, shall we say, very well balanced, and will be putting points on the board. They will be playing catch-up, like the good old days.
  12. I don't see Walker as a Sam, and I don't see him losing his starting Mike job any time soon. He is the reason the Colts were so good against the run last year. His ability to break down film on his own, and use that for play recognition on the field, allowed him to put the defense in the right positions last year to be as good as they were. The guy is like having a coach on the field. He makes everyone around him better. The drafted linebackers will be fighting for starting jobs, but the only linebacker position i see as take-able is Sam. Not saying the other two will be useless players though. Depth is really important. Being able to let starter's have a breather while not lessening the talent on the field too much is a huge benefit. But no matter who wins the starting positions, our defense definitely took a step forward in this past off-season.
  13. That part doesn't worry me as much, As Shippy said to me, "My height can be used as an advantage, getting lower than the blockers when I come off the snap. Helps with getting by then."
  14. A lot of people said Shippy was too short to play DT for the Colts, but after my interview with him, and watching his tape, he has a lot going for him. Humble, really great release of the ball, constant 100% hustle, And the fact he knows he has other shortcomings that he hopes pro coaching will help him with. I've congratulated him, and hope he becomes the next John Randle. (I don't expect it, but it never hurts to hope)
  15. Honestly, When i noticed we really didn't get any new 'true' DT's, I started researching our UDFA's. Then after talking with Shippy, I really like his chances. Good kid.
  16. I've been on the A.J. Brown bandwagon since the off-season began. I think he is the #1 wr for Indy. Will he be the best in the NFL of this class when all said and done? I'm not sure. But I think of everyone in this class, A.J. has the best shot of being tops for production in Indy.
  17. You can follow me on twitter : https://twitter.com/kimberly_v78 .  I can't post ALL my thoughts on Colts.com...lol.  I am new to the media game, and it is so hard to get followers :( But it's nearly all Colts, all the time.

  18. Now that we're getting healthy again, and our tough teams are behind us, we're going to start winning.

  19. I appreciate the new forums. Being able to even log in is fantastic. But am i the only one whom has issue with the site needing to refresh constantly? I get a circle-line where my cursor is all the time and the page locks up for 20-30 seconds . i use my pc, and chrome. and my comp is a graphics workstation, so i wouldn't think it would be on my end. (unless adblocker is the problem).

      If we protect Luck, the sky is the limit. I totally agree Lawrence. :hat:

  21. I'm Back! IDK if it was a rebuild of the forums or what, but i've been gone since the beginning of last season. I've tried to log in multiple times since the offseason began to no avail. (I log in via FB). I have had SOO much on my mind, and have missed the comments of all you guys SOO much that I tried 1 last time...and GOT IN! You just don't know how excited i am of this...lol.
  22. I know i disappear for the most part during the season and VERY active during off-season. Sorry, it's my way of getting my Colts fix. If me posting news and opinion topics so much during this time is a problem, just let me know.

      Haha, I'm in the same boat, brother.  I feel like I over-share in the off-season...  Oh well, we do what we gotta do, right?

  23. VERY excited about this offseason.  I think we have a TON of good players that will eventually become solid players.  I just hope 'eventually' means "sooner rather than later".

  24. This is my favorite time of the year.  Getting to read/watch the new additions either sink or swim.  I sincerly hope he have an entire team of Phelps'.
