  1. It would be great if he were to be our QB of the future. Let's just hope he continues to put in the work to hone his craft and become the player we would all like for him to be!
  2. Good step in keeping one of the leagues best offensive lines together. I like this move!
  3. I hated to see Joe Maddon go, but so far it is looking like David Ross was the right man for the job. Excited with how the Cubs are looking so far this season but it is 2020 and no one knows what is going to happen next in this crazy year!
  4. Not until 1 of 2 things happens: 1. Andrew Luck returns 2. The Colts find a long term replacement as the franchise quarterback. Until one of those things happens there will always be an Andrew Luck Returns thread.
  5. I think what will happen is that we will see more kids from the SEC, the ACC, and Big 12 drafted next year since as of right now it appears they are going to go on with their football seasons. The kids who are going to be hurt the most are the ones from the mid major programs who get one or two games per year against a power 5 team and they have a chance to make a name for themselves. I'm sure it will be difficult to prepare for the 2021 draft but I have a great deal of confidence in Chris Ballard and his team!
  6. Terrible news for his family and for the Colts/NFL community. Rest in peace Coach Mudd.
  7. How will the Big Ten, Pac-12, and other conferences decision to postpone or cancel their 2020 football seasons affect Chris Ballard and the front office as they continue to build the Colts for the future?
  8. The Big 10 won't cancel alone. There is too much money at stake for them to just cancel without the other power 5 conferences doing the same. They may be the first to announce that they are canceling but they won't be doing so if they think the other 4 power conferences are going to go ahead and play. I think with the outcry that they have received from players and coaches to try and play that there is a good chance that they will try and push the season back a couple of months and play a late fall /winter schedule. I don't understand why you would say that you don't care how the
  9. There are guys every year who are "surefire" first round picks. Many of these guys if they switch to a spring football schedule probably will opt not to play and simply train for the NFL Combine and Draft. Guys like Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields are almost guaranteed to go top 5 if not 1 & 2 next year. They really have nothing to gain by playing college football this season. The players who are hurt the most are probably the mid to late round guys. However, we have seen through the videos the Colts have put out about the draft process that NFL teams know these players pretty well. It w
  10. The NFL season would be a nice break from the craziness that is 2020. I'm with you in hoping that we have a season. Football would be a nice distraction from all that is going on this year! Fingers crossed!
  11. In order to be part of the NFL Draft a player has to be 3 years from their high school graduation date. So if a kid graduated in 2018 he would be eligible for the 2021 draft regardless if there is a college football season or not. Trevor Lawrence has nothing to worry about. He probably has more to lose by playing this season than not. I've heard analysts say that he would have been the number one pick last year over Joe Burrow if he would have been eligible. As to the logistics of the 2021 NFL Draft, your guess is as good as anybody else's right now. With all sports in a state of flux I would
  12. I hope so! It would be very nice to have a dominant running game.
  13. Personally, I think Dak is going to end up going the Kirk Cousins route and will end up being franchised twice before signing with another team in 2022. With the Mahomes deal, the bar was raised even higher for QB's. And even though Dak is not going to get Mahomes money he is is probably going to get between 37-40 million a year. Will the Colts be willing to pay that? I don't know, but I do believe that Dak will play this season and next under the franchise tag before moving onto greener pastures.
  14. He also has put his home in Carmel up for sale. I think that he sees the writing on the wall. https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/nfl/colts/colts-insider/2020/07/09/colts-kicker-adam-vinatieri-puts-carmel-home-market/5404722002/
  15. I generally try to be a positive person, but the longer this pandemic goes on the more I believe we won't see the completion of the 2020 NFL season. I do believe they will try to start it, but just by the way that the game is played and the fact that the NFL would be almost impossible to bubble like the NBA and NHL, that they will not be able to play the entire season. I really hope that I am wrong and that we see a full season, but right now I just don't think it will happen.
  16. I guess Aaron will have more time to focus on football this season! https://www.espn.com/espn/story/_/id/29477065/danica-patrick-aaron-rodgers-no-longer-together If you need any company to comfort you during this time Danica just send me a message!
  17. It never ceases to amaze me how some people are always looking to throw some negative in whenever something positive happens. It is a very good thing that agents find Ballard trustworthy. I know personally if I don't trust someone then I don't deal with them. Just because he was voted as most trustworthy and best talent evaluator it doesn't mean he is going to be perfect. He has said so himself that he had made mistakes. EVERY GM in the NFL makes mistakes. So far Ballard has hit far more than he has missed and he has made this team better since his arrival. I really don't think there is much t
  18. I have to disagree. Dallas will always be in the NFC East because like it or not they are probably the biggest brand in the league and Jerry Jones is not going to allow his team to lose their traditional rivalries with the Giants, Eagles, and Washington. Jerry Jones is probably the most powerful team owner in American sports and has a great deal of pull with how things are done in the NFL.
  19. Are we Kansas City or Baltimore? Not yet, but the Titans weren't last year and they were able to make the AFCGC. If you make the playoffs, then anything is possible. I do believe that this team is a playoff team. I see the Colts going 11-5 winning the South and hosting a playoff game. Because of that, I voted yes the Colts are contenders.
  20. I don't think San Antonio would get an NFL team. The market isn't very large, the city already has the Spurs, and there are already two other teams in Texas. I think if a team were to relocate that the NFL would try to get a team in London. With these things you just never know though. I still can't believe that the Chargers left San Diego and there are still people in Baltimore that can't believe we have the Colts in Indianapolis so I guess anything is possible.
  21. I would expect a freshman in college to act immature. I know I did at that age. Personally, I look at it as nothing more than a little brother goofing off. No big deal at all.
  22. A good man and a good coach. RIP Coach Shula.
