  1. Guys, let's be real here... this was a great move for them. You put a guy with MVP potential, but perhaps a knack for getting in his OWN way with Bill Belichick in NE... could be some successful years for them
  2. I mean, I do appreciate an analyst that says "hold on a sec.. you guys are all caught up on the sexy teams, but this Colts team...". It shows that they're actually paying attention. GMFB is sometimes too unserious for my liking (just depending on my mood), but they really believe in us. Also, nothing makes me more happy than hearing Chris Ballard praise on my television haha. Absolutely nothing.
  3. Let me just say this, and this is what made the Luck ordeal hurt even more; 2018 convinced me that we hadn't even seen the best of him. I don't know exactly how the numbers compare to earlier in his career (I think completion was highest, not sure about everything else) but eye-test wise, that stretch where he was comfortable again was the best I've ever seen him play. His pocket presence was breathtaking at times. He was consistently stepping up and spinning out RIGHT on cue, without even looking. It all looked so easy. So we're comparing finished product Rivers to Luck who imo hadn't even peaked. I'm sorry, the wound has healed, just wanted to reminisce real quick haha.
  4. Going into the draft, I was like "Man I HOPE we (controversially) go RB early, but I know we won't." Mack is a serviceable starter, but just average. JT will be elite. We got more explosive, and now the strength of our team doesn't become a non factor if the #1 goes down. The season will start with an even split but I'm certain that JT will give the staff no choice but to give him more and more. Mack takes what our line carves out for him, but not much more, JT is going to shake the LB, put the S in the dirt with a stiff arm, and then run 40 yards for a score. Love it.
  5. Hm... maybe Steelers game gets flexed if Rivers and Ben both turn back time this season? Nice HOF vs HOF story? Yeah... I know, probably not
  6. -We lose @ Cleveland -I really hope we can get to the BYE 5-1 -We beat Baltimore -Of course we play TEN on a short week after BAL -Why the hell can we never get PIT at home!? -I wonder if any of our games get flexed to Sunday night? Maybe if Houston is still battling us late in the season (which I doubt)? 11-5 division winners.
  7. I'm intruiged by Blackmon. I don't know much about him, but I know that our guys were excited to get him and they obviously know what they're doing. Last time we selected a defensive player that I thought we chose "too high", he was DROY and an All-Pro. That being said, I can't seem to find much of him at CB on YouTube. Was he that bad? Also, I'm not seeing much that convinces me he'll be a top FS, all I see is him out of position and getting mossed by guys like Mike Pittman lol. SS instincts seem to be there though. Basically, I know there's something in him that I'm just missing, what is it?
  8. Man, doesn't a Clowney or Griffen signing sound like such a "icing on the cake" or "mission complete" move for us, considering our complete switch to contend now mode? For a while I was confident one would happen. Ship has sailed on Clowney it seems, I wonder if we ever inquired about Griffen.
  9. Yup yup... fair. I think I'm so sure that I know the answers to these questions that I'm not realizing that they are indeed questions. Fair.
  10. Do we really have questions at every level though? I think CB is the only question mark. Sure we could use a DE upgrade, but wouldn't call that position a question mark as I'm assuming either Ben or Kemoko will be good enough, with Buck making their job a lot easier.
  11. I can't help but think that we are ready, man. We are going to be tough to beat. Limiting defense + ball control/run game + a quarterback that will make the PA throws = winning formula. I honestly think simply adding those couple chunk plays will/would've make/made such a difference. Gives us one or two more scores, and would've won us a couple more games. Seeing Franky dial up the PA at the PERFECT moment, and watching Jacoby drop back in a clean pocket just to NOT throw the ball downfield to T.Y was SO painful. Every. Time. I know Rivers' arm strength may be a question now, but I think he can deliver that PA post. Add another surehanded wideout and (hopefully) a Parris Campbell ascension. And then another guy to pound the rock. We're good. I honestly think the makeup of this team makes it so that we do not need elite QB play to win, JUST THROW THE DAMN PA PASS. We have that now. I'm actually trying to be less excited haha.
  12. I don't know where I'm remembering hearing "we think he can play some center also" from. I feel like CB said that somewhere. Maybe I'm just imagining this haha. Either way, I hope our 5 can stay healthy. I am, like everyone, worried about the decline if someone goes down.
  13. Is Pinter considered our "back-up center"? I wonder.
  14. I like Brock Purdy a lot. I've just recently started watching him and could immediately tell that he's a very good quarterback with an average-at-best surrounding cast and bad line. He's not a physical beast, but is deadly accurate with his placement and mobile enough to hurt you with his legs.
  15. Jags** , sorry. Texans have O'Brien... we don't need to steal anything from them, he'll handle that.
