    What's going on with that kid? What's his story? lol.

    Seems like he was interviewed on first day of pre-k and reporter asked if he's going to miss his mom to which he replied "No!" but then started crying :D

     

     

    It's been a very popular meme ever since. :D

  2. Eh... if he truly wants back on the Colts, he's welcome. I'd love to have this quality of QB again and I think this team will be incredible with him under center. 

     

    If he wants back on another team... he's welcome back again. We can use the extra picks he can return... especially in a draft with so much quality at QB that the 2021 draft seems will have. Lets say Washington gets no. 1-3 pick and wants Luck in order to compete right away. I'd absolutely do it for that pick... maybe some other stuff thrown in. 

     

    If he wants to stay retired... again he's welcome. I have resigned myself to the idea that he's not coming back anyways. He was an absolute class act as our QB and I hope he's happy and content with his life either way.

    I'm not talking about him because he has a lot to prove, primarily his ability to stay on the field all year long. Gotta keep the Porsche on the road, like Reich said. But I really liked him before the draft, I'm glad we have him, and I'm excited to see him get back to work.

    Yep, same... was very high on him before the draft. Felt kind of disappointed and frustrated last year... both with his injuries and with the way he was playing when he was on the field. He does have some special traits so... here's to hopefully Rivers and Reich uncovering some of them this year. 


  4. Thats less than ideal. If there is a group that we cannot afford losing rotational players from it's the secondary. I don't blame them, they have to do what they have to do for their own and their family safety, but it sucks for the team.

    What am I not understanding?

     

    You write “soft tissue injuries galore.”   I see one in your post.   Hilton.   Everyone else was simply cut.   Who else are the rest of the soft tissue injuries?  

    Just wait. Every year we get tons of those. For now it's one and to be fair it seems like it was away from camp.

    That's an *ic prediction.  You wouldn't draft a QB in the 4th round that Reich wants to develop, have no preseason, then cut him.  Especially when they know they can cut Kelly and he won't be signed elsewhere.   My prediction is Brissett is moved to another team, Eason is the backup, and Kelly is put on practice squad.   I like Kelly but I think it shows something that last year they wouldn't even let him play when Brissett was terrible. All this talk about how much they love Brissett is a smoke screen. They loved him so much the talked about getting two other QBs before getting Rivers.  And look at NE last year.  They cut Hoyer to have Stidham as the backup as a rookie.  Rivers is a durable guy.  I think Eason can be the backup because there is little chance he would need to play.  If they cut Eason, it would be terrible mistake. 

    The bolded makes tons of sense - we've already seen that teams don't value Chad Kelly enough to claim him off waiver wire, while the same is not true about Eason.

    It takes a good 2 years for a new QB to be groomed, I don't think they give up on Eason, especially if they have to bid adieu to Brissett after 2020, which is very likely and they bring Rivers in for 1 more year which could also be likely.

    I agree.   2 years of Rivers and on to Eason is the most likely scenario.  Unless NewColtsFans scenario comes true.  

     

    I don't think the Colts can rely on Eason being the guy and goal no. 1 should still be acquiring our QB of the future. Now Eason does have about a year to convince them that he's the guy, but IMO it would be a mistake to just pencil him in as the starter past Rivers. They don't have to give up on Eason. A lot of teams carry 3 QBs(about half of them last time I checked) and we can afford to do it if he's shown flashes but nothing amazing to secure a starting spot. This is why I wouldn't mind making moves for our QB of the future if there is a QB Reich and Ballard really like in the draft(Lance probably being the best we can get our hands on, since no team is probably likely to give up the pick to Lawrence or Fields)...

    I’m curious.   How did you conclude that Lance is more athletic than Luck?   You don’t remember that Luck tested pretty much the same as Cam Newton at his combine?

     

    Hey, if Lance is more athletic than Luck, great for him.  I’m just wondering....

    Luck was indeed a great athlete, especially when you consider how much bulk and size he had. IMO Lance is probably a bit more twitchy and quick, but probably don't have the same size/weight...

  9. That's probably about right for a team that hasn't shown anything with a new QB, who we don't know isn't on a steep decline. I personally am a believer of this team and I think we will be better than that but I cannot pretend this ranking is unreasonable.

    Irsay did say Luck was walking away from half a billion... I assumed he was exaggerating, but maybe not. 

    Luck's next contract would have been negotiated at about the same time too. Either now or next year if he had kept his level of play from the last two seasons he played. Not sure he would have gotten the same number of years because he would have been 30 rather than Mahomes who is 24 now(25 during most of the season), but the per year contract IMO would have been similar. Maybe 7/320 or something of the sort...

    I hope Luck is at home thinking the same thing.    He was going to have a huge contract.    He's young enough to still change his mind.   Sometime the thought of what that money can do can be motivating.

    I don't see that happening though.   

    I don't think Luck is motivated by money past some point. He seems like the type who would be equally happy and comfortable both with the 100M he earned during his career and with the 500M he could have earned in the next 10 years. I think he's more likely to be jealous of the success and ability to play football pain free, than about Mahomes' contract. I don't think he's ever coming back, either.

    1. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS

    Last year’s No. 3 offensive line remains intact for 2020 and is primed to repeat as one of the league’s best. The only question mark coming into the offseason was left tackle Anthony Castonzo, but he re-signed for two years to solidify the Colts’ continued success up front. Castonzo is one of the more underrated players in the league, grading between 76.9 and 84.2 in each season since 2012. Castonzo’s 81.3 overall grade last season tied for seventh in the league, as he ranked in the top 16 as both a pass blocker and a run blocker. At right tackle, Braden Smith has made a rare transition from college guard to NFL tackle, and he’s been fantastic in his first two years in the league. He finished No. 9 overall among tackles last season, including the No. 4 mark as a run blocker.

     

    At left guard, Quenton Nelson is among the best guards in the league and is already making his mark as one of the top overall players in the NFL after two outstanding seasons to start his career. Nelson had the No. 2 run-blocking grade and the No. 7 pass-blocking grade in 2019, as his combination of power, quickness and technique have him on a Hall-of-Fame path despite entering just his third NFL season. On the other side, right guard Mark Glowinski has come on strong over the past two years, but he’s a far better run blocker than pass blocker. He gave up 42 pressures during the regular season in 2019, the fourth-most in the league.

     

    Center Ryan Kelly ranked eighth at the position last season with a 73.0 overall grade, giving the Colts four out of five starters ranking in the top 10 at their respective positions. With all five starters returning, Indianapolis will be in the running to rank as the league’s best offensive line.
