  1. Yes I agree that our defense is not as good as the Titans yet. I’d also add that our offensive line while strong on the left side and middle could stand to get better on the right side. The line as hyped as it is did not dominate as much as I expected this season. We have a line with some very good individuals on it but as an overall unit they still have room for some improvement. Hopefully Castonzo sticks around and we can upgrade over Glowinski.
  2. The Colts no longer have an edge over their division rivals. For years the xfactor that set the Colts apart was their franchise QB. That’s no longer the case. The Texans are now a more marquee team because they have Deshaun Watson. I expect they will continue to own the division for awhile. In fact, the Colts don’t really have that star value any more. When an offensive lineman is your most talented player that isn’t exactly billboard material. Darius Leonard is good but this league is full of good defensive players. The Colts lack of a marquee caliber QB has them in danger of becoming boring. The Titans are boring too. They have Derrick Henry whose stock is rising. You can win games with boring but seldom does boring win championships in a league whose primary emphasis is entertainment.
  3. Over the past two seasons, the most recent team that has knocked the Colts, Titans and Texans out of the playoffs is the Kansas City Chiefs. The Colts, Texans and Titans are very close with the Colts losing some ground of late because they now have the worst QB situation. In any case, none of these teams is in Kansas City’s class at this point.
  4. No. Tom Brady is not Tom Brady anymore. He’d win nothing in Indy.
  5. QB, WR, OT (Costanzo mulling over retirement...Colts need to bring in depth now not later.)
  6. Colts need a different defensive coverage scheme and philosophy. Until then their defense will continue to be exploited on a regular basis by competent QBs. Unfortunately Ballard is in love with Cover 2, zone based systems that don’t work. We don’t have an answer at DT or a good enough line in general to get consistent pressure on QBs with our front four. That’s an absolute must if Ballard persists in the Colts being primarily a zone coverage defense. As far as poll goes, I went DT, DE, FS (Hooker needs to be pushed).
  7. This could have...should have...been Luck’s breakthrough season for a Super Bowl shot. But he quit. Interesting twist...in 06/7 the Colts went through Kansas City, Baltimore, and New England on their way to winning the Super Bowl in Miami. This season the Titans have faced New England, Baltimore and now Kansas City. The same teams in reverse order as the 06 Colts. The Super Bowl again will be played in Miami if they make it. They are in the Colts’ “script” for this season.
  8. Titans beat the Brady Patriots in the playoffs. Something the Colts never achieved in the post Manning era. I don’t know if they are better but the Titans are tougher than the Colts in my opinion just on that alone.
  9. Regardless of how well his upcoming draft picks are perceived to be this April, I will be more reserved in my excitement until I see how those players actually look playing in a Colts uni. As much as I liked the last draft class, I was disappointed overall by what they showed on the field as a collective. Paris was bit by the injury bug, Banogou wasn’t utilized as much as I hoped, Rock is still developing but doesn’t appear to possess shutdown corner ability, Okereke was ok but not the Leonard clone hoped for. Best pick from last year thus far appears to be Khari Willis in my opinion. Tough to judge a class on draft day and after only one year so I will keep that in mind next year too.
  10. That’s a hard road to go indeed. I think if my Colts had to deal with Pittsburgh as much as you guys do then they would hardly ever make to playoffs. Lol. That franchise just owns them for whatever reason. I like that the Ravens don’t back down to them...or to the Pats for that matter. So...respect.
  11. Kraft calls the shots. Otherwise Jimmy G would be under center in New England by now and Tommy Terrific would be closing out his career in the Bay. Belichick wanted to keep Jimmy G. but Brady went over his head and appealed to Kraft. No way Kraft lets Brady sign with Indy. He’d convince Tom to sign for less to retire a Pat before he lets that happen. I dint think Brady would want to play for this franchise anyway. Too much ill feelings behind Deflategate.
  12. Brady will be washed soon. He doesn’t throw deep anymore. Colts fans complaining about Brissett not throwing deep enough will be frustrated with the old man soon enough if he comes to Indy. Pass! Don’t need him here. Kraft would force Belichick to resign him before he allows his golden boy to play in Indy.
  13. Best Places for Brady... 1. Retirement 2. New England 3. Jacksonville 4. San Diego 5. Detroit ( back to Michigan to play for a Belichick disciple) Indy will not be an option due to Kraft and Deflategate stigma.
  14. Ding dong the wicked witch is dead! For this season at least. Ha...ha! I can watch the Super Bowl this year!
  15. Zone defense gets you beat. Don’t know why Ballard loves that crappy scheme so much. He has yet to draft the talent needed to play it effectively. Hooker isn’t the ball hawk he envisioned and this team needs more pass rushers off the edges. Not to mention a playmaker at DT.
