  1. Here's what i saw(heard) from the text, that convinced me he's coming to INDY....:

     

    "The Colts' interest makes plenty of sense, though. Indy is weak on the
    interior O-Line, several old Chargers coaches are now on the Colts'
    staff, and new Indianapolis VP of Football Operations Jimmy Raye spent
    the past decade-plus in the San Diego organization. Vasquez and Andy
    Levitre are far and away the most desirable two guards in a top-heavy
    market at the position"

     

     

     

    TKnight85: :yahoo: ED29_1659yards: :disco:

  2. I've been looking at a lot of mock drafts and compiled some names that different people have been predicting the Colts might take with their first round pick.

     

    Out of the below mentioned players, who do you feel the Colts have the best chance at picking up, and who do you want with the 24th pick?

     

    Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi St

    Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State                                               

     

    Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington

     

    Johnathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State

     

    Johnathan Jenkins, DT, Georgia

    Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida

    Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama

     

    Kawann Short, DT, Purdue

     

    Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri

     

    Ezekiel AnsahDE, BYU -...... :thmup:

     

    Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma

    Jonathan Cooper, G/C, North Carolina

     

    I want Eddie Lacy, but the guy that's highlighted in Red w/ the emoticon next to his name, is who I think Grigson is gonna pick....(You really don't know how hard this is for me to accept, but i have to stop fantasizing, and accept the reality... :bored:

  3. I find his comments about the offensive and defensive line to be interesting. He sees the defensive line as a big priority and I think that with Polian it was an afterthought. Especially the interior defensive line. If I were a betting man I would put down some $ that we're going to sign some veteran free agent OL and we will use our first draft pick on a DT or DE. Of course that's just my take on reading between the lines

     

    :ranton:  Read your post, before i watched Grigson's press conference, only to realize that you may very well be on to something. Im * that he revealed his :luv: Man-Crush for Vick Ballard which says to me "were not taking Eddie Lacy in the first round". :bomb:.... :flaming: ... :ticked: I have to move on, at some point. While listening to Grigson share his thoughts on the draft, i noticed his passion, and the lengthy explaination about the Colts transition from the 4-3, to the 3-4 defensive scheme, and it "hit a chord/nerve" with me, and it sounded/felt like - "he's taking a DT/DE in round 1.   :rantoff:

  4. is the former 6'4 225lbs SS for Miami University  in this years draft? I think he is but im not sure, but if he is this dude can flat out play. but was dismissed from the team for accepting improper benefits from a booster, seems like everybody at The U did. I don't know where he would be drafted since he hasn't played in a year. im guessing 5-7th round. at least he doesn't have to worry about any more boosters. whoever gets this guy is getting a steal, an Alphonzo Dennard/Vontaze Burfict type steal in the draft.

     

    I just seen his twitter and it seems like he is in the draft, he has people tweeting him saying how they can't wait to hear his name called on draft day

     

    Maybe not Dennard since he is facing up to 5 years in prison.

     

    You must have visited my page recently.... :thmup: . This is the guy that can help the colts match up with the taller receivers in this league, and provide arial coverage for the big red zone targets like L.Fitzgerald, Cal'Johnson, and A.J.Green. The reason why very few people know, or even remember him is because he was suppose to be Miami's next big star saftey, in the mold of Sean Taylor. I did the research on this guy, and he's actually not a bad kid, but was seduced, like many other athelets who struggle to make ends meet during their college years. So he ended up be dimissed from UM, then transferring to Faulkner University, only to be dimissed because of that storyline that followed him, then he's allowed back on the Miami campus, only for the purpose to graduate, and be allowed to become eligable for the 2013 draft. I belive this guy is gonna be a steal.....same physical speciman as Taylor Mays, but is more concerned about creating turnovers than just getting the big hit....

  5. Jerry Hughes

     

    AGREED!!!.....Using a 1st round pick on a player is a heavy investment. He has a contract, but his jersey stays clean enough to dry a car with. you can count the number of battle scars on his helmet with one hand, and his laundry bill is extremely low. This 2013 season, the Colts need to know, without question, what they have in Jerry Hughes. What can he REALLY DO. If he can rush the passer, and cover the TE's, we may already have what we need, in house. But if he's molded his game after DF, he's going back to the bench or may be traded. Here's a guy i wish the colts would've drafted 3 years ago, that would fill that void:

  6. looking at all of peyton's losses in the playoff, the teams he lost to a lot of them when on to win the super bowl or got really close. 2007 chargers and 2010 jets made the afc championship game 1999 titans made the super bowl, 2003 2004 patriots won the super bowl. 2005 steelers won the super bowl. 2009 saints won the super bowl. 2012 ravens won the super bowl. does knowing this change the idea that peyton chokes in the playoffs

     

    :facepalm: ...If we are going to convict & charge Peyton Manning, in this conversation, for choking in the playoffs, then he deserves a right to have a fair trial, in consideration of that fact the he only plays offense. He is at fault, for not capitalizing on opportunities on offense, when he had the chance to do so. If scores points, who is responsible for stopping the other team from scoring, and giving his offense a chance to score again? If the defense has irritable bowels, and can stop the runs, why would you blame the QB for missing tackles, and dropping interceptions?  Looking back at the 11 playoff appearances, He & the Defense, during his time in INDY, are guilty of :ill: .. :barf:... :yuk: in the playoffs.

    We can fantasize all we want, but you can't pervert or logically rationalize the idea that Peyton is totally responsible for us not having multiple :lombardi: 's, in our horse stable. If the offense scores points, the purpose of even having a defense, is so they can't stop the other team from scoring. How well they do that determines if you win or not. That is the rule, there are no pros or cons about it, nor any disagreement to be made about that. That is the game of NFL football. I realize who im talking to, and i expect the responses to more emotional, than rational. So have fun with this post.

  7. Cleveland has a very good OL, it's hardly an excuse for TR's struggles. The amount of yards and TDs means nothing if he requires too many carries to get them.

     

    Good Dialogue....You..say, that the Browns have a good OL. ... :hmm: When i mentioned the "circumstances" that TR is/was under in 2012, im taking into account, all of elements that minimized/affected, his production for his team. Looking at the stat lines for the Cleveland's offense last year, TR was the workhorse, but was the main attraction/ focus of the oppenents they faced. You could literally lock up their offense with 9 players on defense. (7 in the box, 2 on Josh Gordon, with the remaining players talking to referees about field conditions.)

     

    Brandon Weeden 2012 Stats: 517(att's) 297(comp) 57.4(comp%) 3385(yds) 14(tds) 17(int) 28(sacks!!!)

    Josh Gordan & Greg Little finished with roughly 52 (rec) 647&807 (yds) and less than 6 TD's a piece.

     

    If their Oline was that good, Weeden, Gordan, Little, and Richardson would be backups for the pro bowl...they'll get better, but they've got other issues to address. Weeden is not a franchise QB. Passing & Running compliment each other. You can't have one without the other. This is the :nfl: .

  8. No offense, but I don't trust many guys that work for ESPN when it comes to recruiting or the draft.

    And how is a link to ESPN proof of what Grigson is looking to draft?

     

    "Would that be the same Trent Richardson that averaged 3.6 ypc behind Joe Thomas at LT? Way to stick it to me".

     

    Nobody....hold on a minute, friend. :funny:  I have no interest in "sticking it to you", or being sarcastic, in any way....Richardson, running behind a sheetrock of an offensive line, was the most productive player on their team, finishing with 950 yards, 12 TD's, finishing 4th behind D.Martin, Alfred Morris, and Steven Ridley. Logically, you can't just dismiss that as not having value, or irrelevant, under those circumstances he faced in Cleveland. Joe Thomas and that Oline is the very reason why he and D.Martin's stats are not as close. Whatever you believe is fine by me....I didn't say anything about trusting those ESPN analyst, i said that it had been updated, which doesn't tell us anything about who we're taking at #24. You're better than this, friend.... :shake:

    On the updated ESPN draft board, Johnathan Jenkins is occupying the 24th pick. I think Grigson is considering gettting either Hankins, Jenkins, or Banks at that spot. Eddie Lacy is who i want to see in a Colts uniform from the list of 1st rounders.

  10. I think Pat is going to bring the wood this up and coming season. As his name implies, he's going to play alot Angerer(Angrier) because of that annoying foot injury, that slowed him down last season, which should heal completely by the time pre-season comes around. I can barely control my excitement, in anticipation of seeing & having a 100% healthy Pat Angerer, playing along side Jerrell Freeman. Jerrell did very well last season in Pat's place, but Coach P. has got to find a way to get both of these guys on the field at the same time. Moving Jerrell to OLB, right next to Pat, should limit our opponents big play potential from any of their running backs. I expect the colts run defense, to be in the top 10 next season, providing we can recover, and stay clear of the injury bug....now we just need to patch up the few holes in the secondary, and get ready for another superbowl....

  11. Unitas, Faulk, Dickerson, Herrod, Harbaugh, Clark, Sanders, Harrison, Garçon, Addai, Brakett, Saturday, 3 Manning's and I guess we can add Freeney to this list next year.

     

    Im will be catching up to you this year. Right now, i only have P.Manning, M.Harrison, and E.James. I will be getting the rest of of colts allstars by the end of the year, then we can compare....and yes, im totally envious of you, but not for long...

  12. I guess people seem to forget about that record-breaking day with the Packers that he had. But somehow Mr. Irrelevant is better than him... 

    Someone took a wrong turn in this conversation. Who said Chandler Harnish IS better than Matt Flynn :thinking: ? I believe he will be better, just not right now. Harnish is trying to earn a spot on this team, behind A.Luck. Obviously he's doesn't have Flynn's stats, but he's not a the bench with a better-than-average contract, waiting to play behind a rookie, either. Let's bring this issue back when Flynn becomes the starter and gets Seattle to the post season. Flynn vs Harnish, let's keep watching.... :goodluck:

  13. Agreed....with Avery gone....he only has to position himself behind, or next to, Nathan Palmer, as he works his way up the ladder. The climb, up the mountain to stardom, for Kelley, is not that steep. Here are the "obstacles" that he's facing:  WR's ONLY.

     

    Jabin Sambrano

    Jeremy Kelley

    Griff Whalin

    Austin Collie - Injured / Potentially Released

    Nathan Palmer

    Lavon Brazill

    T.Y. Hilton

    Reggie Wayne

     

    With Collie's history, Sambrano, and Whalen not getting enough reps to really showcase what they can do, this off-season is gonna be intense, and very competitive. T. Hilton & N.Palmer's explosiveness, will let them stay home. Brazill's most valuable asset is his catching ability, so he's gonna continue to stay relevant, and provoke the starters to step their game up. And well Reggie,...is Mr. Reggie Wayne.

  14. Well there's a good chance Avery won't be back.

  15. Stanton is a lifetime, NFL backup. While i agree that he's better than corn-on-the-kolb, he doesn't have any NFL film or highlights showcasing his potential to be a starter in this league. Watch what happens with Chandler Harnish. I like this guys skill set, and i think he's gonna end up in a situation similiar to Matt Flynn, except he's actually gonna start for some team.

  16. Closing Topic Remarks: I think that Grigson is smarter than i give him credit for. Im irritated with the fact that Armond Armstead snubbed the  :coltslogo:  to sign with the :flyingelvis: . One thing i just considered, is that maybe Grigson allowed the info to leak out to the NFL, so someone else could test him, just to see if AA's heart could withstand the rigors of the NFL. How awesome would it be if his heart is ok, but he doesn't fit the patriots scheme, and ends up right back here in INDY!!!

  17. We've got a thread on him. You should post there.

     

    Nobody....I realize that, friend, which is how i end up posting information, after failing to find the updates, prior to my posting. It's :facepalm: , but, like the other attention clowns :nutz:  on this forum, i do it for the responses :panic:. Please allow me to have my fantasy of being an ESPN or Indy Colts, low-budget news anchor. ** Note to self, check colts news before making unnecessary postings** :hmm:

    UNREAL! - OMG @3:15!!!.....he'll be the first receiver on Madden 14, with 100% jumping ability. Without alot of info on this guy, I'm impressed with what i see, but not completly sold, until i see him in a colts uniform, on field, jumping over the goal posts, after scoring a touchdown.


     


    His stat line is as follows:


     


    HEIGHT: 6'6"


    WEIGHT: 225 - 230LBS


    40 Low: 4.50   40 Time: 4.56  40 High: 4.73


     


    We ask for one, Grigson delivers....can't ask for much more than that. Grigson is managing the budget quite well :thmup: !!!


     


    **The music is very annoying, so feel free to mute it, and enjoy the video**

    Today's Colts info search, has taken me from Colts.com, to NFL.com, taking me to the land of wikipedia. It's so interesting to see how the NFL has grown over the years, and how it's culture has changed from the years of the AAFC (All-American Football Conference) to the National Football League.
