  1. Damn, Pep Hamilton did beat that D, didn't he? Best game I remember him calling. Where it went after that, I have no idea.
  2. You're never going to run or have a carbon copy of a defense. Seattle itself doesn't have the personnel to do what it did in 2013, and I'm no expert on their D, but I'm sure they have evolved some since then.
  3. No, you said "where's the podcast?" So I told you.
  4. Youtube. Every Monday or Tuesday, I think. It's pretty good.
  5. In Bowen's podcast, he said, in talking to the Colts, they have said yes, our defense is the Seattle defense. Minor differences, maybe.
  6. In Bowen's podcast, he said Ballard(or the Colts) have said yeah, our defense is the Seattle defense. That's what they're going for. Just some minor differences, maybe.
  7. Not sure if there was a mistake, but it now says Cain will be ready for training camp and will not be on PUP to start the season. Same thing Bowen said on the podcast.
  8. They tried him more as a receiver early on, it seemed. He caught the one TD, but also had the 30 yard drop vs. Houston. Later, the 4th and 2 vs. Tennessee comes to mind. I do like Fountain's tape. Not worried about one drop in a meaningless moment.
  9. You would think, but Ballard said they worked him out at SAM and decided to keep him at DE. Not sure, but I think Houston might have played some SAM earlier at Georgia. I doubt the Colts use him in this role, but he probably could have played it. Physically, he's fairly similar to Banogu.
  10. It's interesting, when Seattle won the Super Bowl, they didn't have a huge sack guy - the sacks were more evenly distributed - and their LBs had a fair number of sacks. I could see a similar distribution with our lineup.
  11. At the time, they were crucified for the Irvin pick. Few people apparenty had an understanding of what they were going for. Reading a more detailed breakdown of the Seattle SAM/Leo, it sure sounds like Banogu and what the Colts seem to be going for.
  12. I'm not beating the drum for Willis. I'm just giving my take on the situation. This seems to be the common perception of Colts fans: we missed out on all the safeties we talked about for two months, so we grabbed Willis in the 4th for depth. From Ballard, that's not at all how I read it. This is who he wanted. This is someone he targeted and wanted. He speaks about Willis in one way, Tell, Green, etc., in a completely different way. As I said, we'll see. The guy has yet to take a practice rep. You might be spot on.
  13. Not sure what you mean, and I have no idea what will happen with Willis, but there is nothing about Geathers' situation - his level of play, his injury history, his peanuts one year contract - that says to me he is some sort of entrenched player.
  14. This sort of reminds me of two months ago when people were predicting three year 18 million dollar deals Geathers.
  15. In the With the Next Pick mini-doc, Eberflus said if we draft him, we can teach him technique. I'm guessing he was talking about Banogu. Banogu told PFF that, at TCU, they weren't even taught pass rushing moves. They only rushed with scheme. So I get it. You start him at SAM, send him on blitzes, work on his technique and work him into the DE rotation. You hope you can turn an athletic freak into an impact pass rusher. If not, he can still be valuable as an athletic SAM and a situational pass rusher - sort of a unique weapon.
  16. Who knows, but the guy has yet to take a practice rep. The truth is if he wins the job in camp, he'll start over both Geathers and Farley. Geathers on a one year deal with his injury history and Farley as a career depth player are hardly entrenched players. It's not like Willis has to beat out TY. Ballard signing Geathers to a one year deal then drafting and showing all signs of being extremely high Willis says to me he probably wants and expects Willis to play sooner rather than later. We'll see what happens.
  17. I don't know, I get the sense Ballard is much higher on Willis than are some of the fans. Remember, Ballard said he considered taking Willis in the 3rd, presumably instead of Okereke.
  18. Just based on Geathers' injury history, Willis srarting sooner rather than later is probably a solid bet. I didn't like the Banogu pick initially. I get it now. I think I understand what they're going for these LBs. As a DE, Banogu can be taught technique and pass rushing moves.
  19. A lot of candidates from the past 2-3 drafts to possibly make a leap - Kelly, Hooker, Mack, Smith, Turay, Lewis, etc. Even someone like Glowinski is relatively young and and can improve with experience. PFF liked Wilson the final 10 games - predicted a breakout from him.
  20. To me, Speed jumps off the film as much as anyone we drafted. Doesn't mean he'll be a great pro, but he is an intriguing player.
  21. They might do some of that with Banogu and Houston, Krunk, but I think they also like the idea of getting at the QB from any off the ball 4-3 LB position(Leonard 2018). Frank said something... a few things, to that effect.
  22. I have a feeling Banogu and Okereke will both start. They're trying to create something different with these LBs. Hybrid, flexible, however you want to describe it. When asked about the pass rush, Frank said it can also come from these athletic LBs, as with Leonard and his 7 sacks last year. E.J.? Damn, watch Speed explode on the QB. Wouldn't doubt if Rock starts, too. Geathers and injuries... another possibility there with Khari.
  23. Isabella's overall tape is much better. I prefer Fountain's overall tape to Hart's as well. Unless there are injuries, it seems the ship has sailed on Inman. I just went back and watched some of the late season games. It's hard to believe there is no place for Inman on this team. Every team needs a few steady and reliable lunch pail-type vets IMO. You can go overboard with the whole targeting athletic freaks thing.
  24. Personally, I'm glad the Colts took Marv and Reggie in the first.
