  1. I'm fine with the draft. Not blown away, nor do I feel it's Ballard's best job thus far, but I'm fine with it. He addressed a glaring need at pass-rush and did it twice. Whether you agree with how he did it will be up for debate. Hell, there's still Colts fans that don't like the addition of Buckner, so you simply can't please everybody. But I like the roster and think the defense got better. The offense? They will go as far as Wentz can take them. That, to me, is the biggest gamble of the off-season. Ballard is trusting Reich here.
  2. Not from what I found. In fact, most I saw had Paye ranked slightly higher. It wasn't much of a difference, but it was what it was. Both were pretty close really. NFL Network had Paye as one of their steals of Round 1.
  3. I like what Carolina and Cleveland did. A lot.
  4. Not only that, but if you look at just overall best player available, most had Paye ranked higher than Darrisaw, so he was just doing what he should, take the BPA that fills a need.
  5. IDK about Fisher BUT I think some people forget that the Draft is NOT the end of the free agency period. Some think that the post-draft and UFA roster is what you will get on opening day and that simply isn't the case. Wave 2 of vet FA starts TODAY as teams assess what they have post-draft and many players will be let go, some highly surprising. It happens every year and I see no reason why this year will be any different despite the slight increase in roster size. Someone will be out there at LT should the Colts choose to explore that option, and one of them could very well be a vet like
  6. There's some validity to that. I think those who wanted Edge first (myself included) would have been upset they went LT first and not been able to get anybody of notice to address the pass rush problem, and then there's others who are upset we addressed the pass-rush problem but were then unable to get a premier guy at LT. We didn't have two 1st rounders so somebody is going to be upset no matter what he does. Even if he takes the best LT in the 2nd round people are going to say he should have taken XYZ in the 1st and taken ZYX in the 2nd instead. Bottom line, not enough high picks to addr
  7. Sorry I haven't been around much. Didn't even get a mock out this year. So this will be long. As for the draft, I'm giving it a B. I don't hate it, but I don't think it looks like his best draft either. Of course we will see. I LOVE the first two picks of Paye and O. Think his achilles is coming along from what I've heard and he may be available by mid-season. Hopefully, he's a fast healer a la Blackmon. But it looks like he can play inside or outside, and versatility is a good thing. Edge was, IMHO, our top need (although I realize many will say OT, but with w
  8. I don't know what to think. I have zero inclination on what the Colts might do.
  9. Well Robinson and Godwin are out, my top 2 WR's. Golladay would be my next choice and he's available but I'm not holding my breath. Ballard has typically been conservative. I think the trade for Buckner was the unicorn. I could see him going after a guy like Kendrick Bourne, Curtis Samuel, Demarcus Robinson, etc. Somebody who is young and has some upside but relatively cheap and isn't going to move the needle among the general Colts fan. I COULD see him spending a bit more at Edge though. A guy like Okwara or Dupree would be nice and won't be cheap. I think they will bring T
  10. I think the draft is the best place to find a good LT at #21. I'd start there. Darrisaw maybe? Then I think if you just made a trade for your future QB, you'd better not only protect him, you'd better have some weapons for him. So I'd spend the majority of any remaining FA dollars on a WR or TE. Maybe a higher-priced guy like Godwin, Robinson, or Golladay. Seems like Godwin may make the most sense with what TB has down there. Next I'd look at a 2nd-tier Edge. A guy like Dupree makes sense since the Steelers are in cap hell. Even if they get rid of Big Ben they st
  11. The easy answer is BPA. But I would be very surprised if they didn't get the best LT available, likely one of the top 3 guys.
  12. I'd go money on him being back with the Eagles. I don't think anybody really wants him that bad or else he'd already be dealt.
  13. Yeah hopefully this nonsense will calm down soon. People are bored. When people are bored they look to stir #$%^ up.
  14. ( 8 ) Andy Dalton ( 4 ) Mitch Trubisky ( 3 ) Jameis Winston ( 10 ) Marcus Mariota ( 9 ) Jacoby Brissett ( 1 ) Teddy Bridgewater ( 5 ) Gardner Minshew ( 2 ) Ryan Fitzpatrick ( 6) Nick Foles ( 7 ) Cam Newton
  15. Grab Cam and Allen Robinson in FA (no relation.......I think?), and trade up and put all chips on the table for your QB of the next decade+.
