    Colts have fired OL coach Dave DeGuglielmo

    Last Saturday proved that is definitely the case.

    Colts have fired OL coach Dave DeGuglielmo

    Denzelle Good did say it was just one member of the organisation who he had a grievance with and so this would tie in with him going. Although the line has made great strides this year, with the influx of talent, the improvement in offensive scheme and the return of Luck do we really know that it was DeGuglielmo that made the big difference? Just thinking out loud, lol. If you told me Reich and DeGuglielmo were not on the same page and asked me to pick one to keep......I know who I would opt for.
  3. https://www.stampedeblue.com/2019/1/15/18183163/indianapolis-colts-2018-winners-and-losers-defense Nice article here, although the inclusion of Hooker as a "Loser" seems a bit harsh as, although his stat sheet wouldn't reflect a great year, I believe he was a big reason behind us not seeing many deep throws against us. Maybe they just needed to bulk out that category after a year with so many "winners"!

    What does Cox do better that Swoope?

    If all a tight end needs to do is catch then this could be a discussion. Unfortunately for Swoope it is not. Without Doyle we were devoid of blocking talent at the TE position as this is not Ebron's game. Cox excelled at this on a number of occasions and was specifically mentioned by a number of people in the media and Colts locker room. The other thing is we have seen tangible progression with Alie-Cox from where he started, especially on the blocking side. I would say that Swoope is the same player he was when he walked through the door on his first day.

    Matt Slauson 2019?

    At this point I would think we could bring him back for less than Glowinski, who might have created a market for himself. Risk is we end up in another situation like Mewhort.

    Matt Slauson 2019?

    There is a lot to be said for an average guard in this league. There is no way to get 5 All-Pros without having no money. An average Guard with experience and very strong leadership would be a valuable asset for most teams.

    Matt Slauson 2019?

    He was quoted as saying he wants to come back and has a meeting arranged with Ballard to discuss.

    Colts away schedule is brutal

    Nice paraphrasing of the Nature Boy! Love that phrase and always sticks with me. "To be the man, you've got to BEAT the man" Seriously though, I think we are not just about next year. Although the schedule is tough, we need to test our young team against the best and that will only make us better for the years to come. I also include Reich going up against the best coaches in this scenario. I think he will have a fire in his belly after Reid out-coached him (Reich's own words) and so he will relish that challenge next year and make him all the better for pushing towards that Dynasty we are all chasing!

    Matt Slauson 2019?

    I was just wondering about RG for next year? For most of the year I thought it would be likely that Smith would move back over in 2019 and we would address the RT position in the off season, likely via the draft. However, the more he played, the more he seemed to fit that role and so I would be comfortable going into 2019 with Smith there and there for the long term. Glowinski and Slauson both have contracts that will expire soon and so I was wondering what people's thoughts are on whether we bring back one, both or neither? Glowinski has been unexpectedly rather good and has looked excellent while pulling, which has been a defining element in the success of this group in 2018. However, I just feel Slauson is the leader this group needs. Even after his injury he was constantly there and getting involved and even Big Q mentioned how important he has been for him in his first year. The fear is obviously that he had a really nasty back injury sustained against the Patriots and whether that will become an issue for an older player but, for me, he seems like the kind of veteran presence this young group needs. Also, he is just plain nasty when playing!

    Bringing Closure to our 2018 Season.

    Yeah that was a bad one. I do believe though that this staff will take that as an opportunity to teach. Say to him that, as bad as you feel about it now, imagine if it had mattered in the final score. I really hope Cain comes in and has an impact next year. We sorely need weapons for Luck, via draft and free agency.

    Thanks Everyone!

    His track record, even in a stort spell, should tell you we are in good hands.

    WR day 2 or even day 1

    Thankfully we should have two picks in the first 36 or so. One on pass rush, one on WR for me.

    Thanks Everyone!

    The future is bright. Let's use tonight as motivation for next year. We were close, but still a long way to go.
