  1. I can see where some Colts fans would trade the M. Pittman (#34) and J. Blackmon (#85) slots to get up to #26 where J. Love was taken. At least we would still have J. Taylor at #41 in the second round and could draft another player in the 4th round at #122 instead of a QB (Eason). That would yield Buckner, Love, Taylor and a 4th rounder instead of Buckner, Pittman Jr., Blackmon, Eason we ended up with.
  2. No, I'm sorry to inform you that you are wrong here. The Packers and Dolphins also swapped their round 1 pick positions (Packers were at #30 and the Dolphins had another round 1 pick at #26) and THEN Green Bay added the other pick(#136) to the deal. It wasn't just we'll give you our pick at #136 so we can enter round 1 again at #26 and take the QB we want... and also keep our spot at #30. No, a team also had to give the Dolphins their 1st round pick slot... and the Colts just didn't have one because they gave that away to get Buckner. But if the didn't trade it for Buckner, woul
  3. From all the banter and reports back then, the Colts/Ballard was keenly interested and often tied to him. But at what cost to get him? No, I believe you are truly mistaken here. The Packers swapped their 1st round pick at #30 pick and added their pick #136 in a trade with the Dolphins to move up just 4 spots to pick at #26 and take Love. The Colts did not have a first round pick (traded #13 for DeForest Buckner) at all to take him or trade down with, nor willing to move a lot of other draft capital to move ahead of Green Bay to get Jordan Love. End of story.
  4. This is pretty funny- https://twitter.com/TomBrady/status/1348797993634455554?ref_src=twsrc^tfw|twcamp^tweetembed|twterm^1348797993634455554|twgr^|twcon^s1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.nbcsports.com%2Fboston%2Fpatriots%2Ftom-brady-pokes-fun-himself-drew-brees-hilarious-tweet-nfl-playoff-game
  5. Two things- The game day thread (as illustrated by many members here in response to you) is the only place to enter any comments concerning Colts players and/or coaches that has any connection/inkling to the circumstances of the game being played at that time. Typically, a moderator (quite a few of us) or the community manager (Nadine) will see and just 'lock' such a thread. I was not around my laptop much during the game so I missed most conversations here. But I can see (yes moderator privilege) your post you refer to, and truth is, I likely would have 'hid' it duri
  6. I just hope we don't have a second half meltdown , as in a couple previous games.
  7. Please post in Game Day thread.
  8. Completed last 13 passes in a row, too. Got to stop that.
  9. Division games are harder than the typical game. Teams know each o5ther well. I can guarantee you I'm excited about it. Right now, Bucs are on one channel, Dolphins on the other. If the Colts were playing at 1:00 pm, I would not see the game on TV. At 4:25, they will be on network TV here in SW Florida!! Woo hoo!! I do! I'm pleased!! Works for me!
  10. I'm awaiting any possible medical issues resulting from this- I believe they are probably going to check him out for ribs, kidney (Luck type laceration?), liver, spleen, more... True. That's why NFL wants that style of tackling eliminated, and heavily funded the 'Heads up football' programs. https://www.nflfoundation.org/health-safety
  11. Possibly because of this rule change for the Covid season- "Teams now have more flexibility with using practice squad players on game day. PS players can be activated on game day before the team announces their inactives (90 minutes before game time). The player doesn’t have to be elevated from the PS to the main roster for the move. This can happen with up to two practice squad players per week, but the same player can’t be elevated two weeks in a row. A player is only able to be elevated twice per season. To be put activated a third time requires the player to be signed to the re
  12. Each team in the NFL is allowed up to four practice squad protections per week, and every practice squad player is still available to be signed to the regular roster of another team after their team’s game that week until the deadline on Tuesday. After that deadline, protected players can not be signed away by another team from then through the upcoming game. Maybe he is one of the designated 'protected' players?
  13. It was, but, was it after the PI (allegedly) occurred? Isn't the tip rule because the defender times his hit but a deflection disrupts the ball flight and arrival time? IF P.I. occurs before the tip, is it still PI? I don't know. By himself, or because of incidental contact with the WR? I can't remember. The latter shouldn't be PI. The former might be. I'm actually more ticked about the PI (TJ Carrie?) where Ben's pass sailed way over the WR on light to no contact? And the Steeler WR Offensive PI on a (would be) pick 6.
  14. Normally, it's very quiet. People don't recognize most officials names, maybe only the Head Ref of a crew. But guys will get reduced (typically if a poor performing official brings down the crew grade) games. And yes, some are not asked back the following year. Sometimes, they get a mid season boot. Like: And this accomplishes what? Most of those guys have real jobs (from attorneys, to medical sales, to engineers, to Professor/teachers, to Carpenter foreman and all sorts of other occupations. And those brought up to replace them are by and large n
  15. Supposedly, they are- How NFL officials are graded each week: NFL officials file their game reports to the league office minutes after the final whistle. On Monday, every play is graded by the league and officials are given a report on Tuesday, highlighting incorrect or missed calls. Officials are then given a chance to offer a rebuttal before a final decision on the play is made by the league. By the end of the day on Wednesday, officials get a final grade from the game. Typically, there are between 160-180 plays per game. Officials are ranked into three tiers, with th
