    New England (+3) at Kansas City (1-20-19)

    Who knows if they will win, but the Rams won't make all the stupid mistakes the Chiefs did, and their D is better.

    Dee Ford is the new Lin Elliot. The game should have ended on Brady's 3rd INT.

    New England (+3) at Kansas City (1-20-19)

    Belichick was happy going to the half 7-0, but Reid took a timeout on 3rd down, even though he's getting the ball to start the 2nd half. Big mistake.

    Okay, Brady chokes on that drive. Can Mahomes now get a pass within 10 yards of a receiver?
  5. Great award. Let's do a team trophy in 2019.
  6. You can control every trench like it's France circa 1917, but with Belichick, Peyton, McVay, Reid and their 2019 offenses, you better match scores and keep up, otherwise you will be back on the bus faster than we were in KC.
  7. I'm a supporter. Great job so far, but hopefully he's more flexible than some from our past. Ballard said he wants opponents to "feel" our D-line. That's great, but unless we have the ability to match scores with elite offenses, every Super Bowl, no one will be feeling us. Instead, we'll be sitting at home feeling ourselves.
  8. In the past 20 years, we have the most winners - the most execs of the year. Of course Grigson in 2012 was the equivalent of Mark Mosley as MVP in '82.

    This years FAs

    Players in Glowinski's position usually get paid. The O-line was probably the most high profile, talked about group on this team, and Glowinski's the free agent member of that group. Someone will overpay. Wouldn't doubt if we don't match.

    Antonio Brown? Doubt it.

    Like I said, Luck's a different kind of guy. I think Brown would work fine with Luck. Would the Steelers trade Brown to another AFC playoff team, though? Would they trade him to the Pats? I doubt it. Would they trade him to the Chiefs or Colts? I don't know. If a trade were possible, from the Colts perspective it would probably be more about the draft pick, money and his age than anything locker room related.

  12. No doubt. In the year 2018/2019, when you get to the final three games - KC, NE, NO, LA - you have to match scores. You have to be prepared to shoot it out. We need weapons.
  13. You don't necessarily have to plan to replace a kicker/punter like you plan to replace a QB. If he comes back and it doesn't work, you can find another kicker, just like Ballard found a good punter in Sanchez.
  14. I've gone back and forth as to its importance. The D? Nothing unexpected. It's exactly how I thought they would look against an elite offense. The O? Other than the fact we need receiver help, I wouldn't place too much importance on it. It was just one of those days. We were off. Nothing worked. We couldn't get into a rhythm. We picked a bad day for it.
  15. The thing about the Good story - he may not have gone to anyone with it. He may not have gone to Ballard. Possibly, he only asked for his release, then vented later. Generally speaking, it might have been news to the organization as well.
  16. After reading the Good story, I suspected this might happen. The family Ballard talks about building? You can't have that crap going on, and with a self-motivated leader like Nelson, this O-line doesn't need that type of coach.

    Ballard press conference

    I'm not sure that's what he was saying. Last year, he admitted he didn't invest enough in the O-line. He was asked if there was a group this season he could say that about. He was more praising Ebron and Reich's work with Ebron than commenting on anything philosophical moving forward. Plus, he's all over the place at times. He says they're prudent in free agency, but then admits he couldn't find matches because not a lot of players wanted to come here. WR needs an upgrade. I'm certain he knows it.

    Antonio Brown? Doubt it.

    Luck is a different kind of guy. Brown would probably work fine with Luck, but it won't happen. I think we'll draft a WR relatively high and bring in another reliable vet in free agency.

    Ballard press conference

    No doubt about that. He knows what to do. For a guy who has yet to win a Super Bowl, I have about as much faith in him as you could.

    Ballard press conference

    I said it over and over at the time. I knew that was a lie. We were pursuing them - they were just signing elsewhere. That said, we might have lucked out with a few of them signing elsewhere.

    Let's talk 2019 offseason

    We need a few receivers, honestly. One being a vet, preferably. I think they'll keep Smith at RT and probably sign Glowinski, but look to keep adding. Even in one of their lesser games in KC, the O-line perhaps played well enough to win, but nothing else worked. Glowinski wasn't great and Smith got beat a few times, but there are much bigger issues. To compete with elite offenses, we need quite a few upgrades on D. Regardless, when it gets to playoff time, you will probably have to match scores with elite offenses. In this day, once you reach the playoffs, you have to be prepared to shoot it out.

    Bringing Closure to our 2018 Season.

    Yeah, many other fan bases would be content with this season, but if the Colts make the playoffs in 2019, we will have made the playoffs in 18 of the past 25 seasons. Colt fans expect to win. I've noticed it on this forum. Once the Colts start winning, the whole mindset changes quickly. Now it's all about a championship. How do we get there? A division title or another playoff appearance is not enough.
  23. With the rules, the coaching hires, with the college game creeping more and more into the NFL, it's all going to offense. As for the rules, the NFL sent a letter to the players, saying, after somewhat of a moratorium, the helmet calls will be back in full force next year. Hopefully all the crazy roughing the passer calls we saw early on don't also return.
  24. I think it's like this: you want a relatively balanced team to stay consistent and survive a 16 game schedule, but once you get to the playoffs, you better be prepared to shoot it out. To get through the final three - through the Chiefs, Pats, Saints, Rams, etc. - you need weapons. You have to match scores, otherwise it could be over quickly.
  25. There's such a sandlot aspect to his game that no, I don't expect it to continue consistently. It's just not Brady or Manning precision based style that is repeatable over games, months and seasons.
