  1. I meant “Welcome to Colts nation” I think he’s got a pretty good handle on America at this point. Sorry, I’m just jacked up!!
  2. His mom was running for her life in a refugee camp while soldiers were killing everyone. She went to another refugee camp and had Kwity. She went to America with nothing and raised her boys. Tonight her son announced on national television “She’s done working, she’s retired” with them both draped in an American flag. Just awesome. What a story. Kwity, welcome to America!!! https://www.espn.com/nfl/draft2021/story/_/id/31310483/meet-nfl-draft-most-extraordinary-prospect-kwity-paye
  3. Brother, preach!! Thanks, one of my fave posts I've seen about our offense in a long time. I hate when we go to jumbo on 3rd and one. Spread it out! And put the ball in your playmakers hands to win the game.
  4. I love how much heart he puts into the game. If he can stand he will dress and play.
  5. Yes. I have two larger questions: why do we keep running for short yardage out of jumbo formation? Everyone on the field knows Rivers can't run a stretch or bootleg, so the middle is clogged, and we try and fail over and over. Why not spread the field? We are 31st in the league in 3rd and one. Why is Reich letting Rathman decide who plays at any given moment (as has been reported)? "We view all our running backs as interchangeable." What? I understand the desire for position versatility, and maybe that quote is a fancy way of covering for their concerns about Taylor
  6. East Street, I just want to say thank you for the effort, knowledge, and hysteria-free analysis you bring to this board on a near- daily basis. Appreciate you man.
  7. Yes, JT has mis-read some lanes/opportunities and lacked some decisiveness this season, but he's no Trent Richardson. IMO he's a talented rookie who's devoting a lot of his consciousness to Rathman's mentoring about not fumbling. He was thrust into carrying the whole load and wasn't ready. I still have high expectations for him settling in and everything clicking for him, including 4th Q of this season.
  8. Hooker is another example of how being a great athlete is only part of being a great football player.
  9. I think we can and I sure hope so. We are all surrounded, understandably, by news and discussion of the pandemic. Personally I come here for a respite from it all and to embrace Colts news, discussion, and a new hope after a great off season. OF COURSE the season might be cancelled. Until that moment (which I hope doesn't come unless the Patriots are on the verge of winning the Super Bowl ) All I gotta say is Go Colts!!!
  10. I think you are overthinking this. Rivers was brought in as a better starting option than Brisett, who the Colts still like and have faith in, especially as a backup. Ballard wants to win now, this year, which means Eason or Kelly ain't getting the keys if Rivers goes down for a game or two. A lot of people are done w Brisett and his lack of upside and I get that, but baring a trade he's definitely our #2 QB. If I'm wrong and Ballard cuts him I promise I'll change my avatar to a pic of Swag!
  11. True, he's got a better arm. But Rogers has always struck me as a real jerk so Ima be happy with Rivers' strange flick style.
  12. The name that I haven't seen on this thread is Matt Eberflus. I think Ballard listens to him, and I suspect he's a big reason Hooker didn't get the 5th yr, as Ballard is filling the D with sound-tackling, effort guys that Eberflus loves, like Buckner. "I think he (DeForest Buckner) played with the best effort on the D-line, which really shows on tape when you see somebody that big sprinting to the ball every play and making those tackles downfield"- Nick Bosa on how much he'll miss DB. Buckner epitomizes what Eberflus wants, no "loafs." Hooker has range and can make j
  13. I find this quote of his very cool (from Colts.com): "That's basically what my dad (former NFL running back Michael Pittman) talks about. He talks about Keyshawn Johnson being his favorite guy because he would throw the best blocks for him," Pittman Jr. said about being a receiver that likes to block. "It's always good to block." Watching episode 4 its clear Reich is nuts about Pittman and I bet MP's blocking was part of the appeal. The guy played special teams so he's clearly not averse to doing dirty work. Total package. I'm amped up too, kinda like Bald
  14. Best of luck to Pierre Desir! Sorry he got hurt and sorry to see him go; he seemed like one of the really good guys, all class.
  15. Ed Dodds is the man and his rep will afford him the ability to wait for a good, stable situation, assuming he even wants a GM job. The Browns are a mess. I just hope Mr Irsay is generous with him so he can afford to wait for the perfect opportunity.
