    At least with this Parry either makes the team or he doesn't based on his on the field performance.

     

    The off-the-field stuff has been taken care of.

     

    No jail time.     He will be enrolled in the NFL substance abuse program for his extreme alcohol arrest.    Good.

     

    Now we'll find out Parry really is,  because he's going to have to work his tail off to make the team.   

    It is nice to be able to say he could be the 3rd string NT. 

     

    Good post.  He needs to work his tail off!!!

    First off,  I should say I don't think we're going to take one of the sexy RB's.      I don't see the Colts taking Fournette,  Cook,   McCaffrey,   Mixon,   Kamara,  Samuel (I see him as a RB,  others see a WR)  or Foreman.

     

    I think our next RB comes from a group of the following:    (and not necessarily in the order I'm listing them)      I see the Colts taking a RB in rounds 3-5 with the most likely round being the 4th.

     

    Samje Perine/Oklahoma:

    If you have a favorite that I haven't listed,  I think we might show interest in them IF we draft a 2nd RB in this class,   or if we sign another after the draft like we did with Ferguson.      Otherwise,   I think one of these 9 is the potential heir apparent to Frank Gore,  unless we taking one of the talented backs in the 2018 class.

     

    Nice job NCF!!!!  No sue what will happen, but I enjoyed the list and info.  Thanks. :)

    I'm 100% on board with taking the bpa in the 1st whatever that is. I don't want to pass up a star for a need. After that I do think corner is a huge need that we need multiple of along with need at edge and inside backer. This draft is really the perfect draft and I think Ballard has set this team up well. It isn't deep at DT particularly and he filled our needs there. OLB is hard to find starters in the draft and he took multiple in free agency. He did leave corner unaddressed along with RB and great for us it's a very very deep draft at those positions. I trust he has a plan for those and won't leave it to chance late in the draft or in free agency he will look to fix it sooner before later in the draft. Guard is another deep position in the draft and I expect us to look there around that 4th rd too. I'm really excited for this draft because it has the possibility for us to fill positions we havent addressed in a while. Just like last years draft set up nicely for us to address the OL. Only a few more days to go!

    Totally agree.  Other than a center, we need another star in the making with that 1st pick. 

     

    Off topic, are we really going with Tolzein again this year as backup?  I may have missed something in my absence.

    Law of averages means nothing. It's based on talent, growth, and coaching in who makes the playoffs. If that were true, the Mariners would have made the playoffs once in the last 15 years. Nothing is guaranteed and you have to earn it every year, even if the talent level is close.

    Do you work at ESPN now? :)  

     

    Cool dialogue.

    Does anyone in here think if the Cubs still had Chapman they would be 4-0 instead of 2-2? Montgomery has lost 2 games so far! I think probably 3-1 at worse because no way were we sweeping the Cards in St Louis

    Strop and Montgomery were out there last year too.....the set ups have not gone well.

    I would like to add more but we are not getting very many of the games.  Bummer.

    Yeah I had Sunday and Monday off but had to go in real early Tuesday and I was tired last night. Today was really tough because I worked 12. I am going in a little later tomorrow so I will be feel better tomorrow. At night it's just easier where I work and once it gets quiet I can get on the internet and follow games.

    You must work for a freight company. :)

    And if he played back then maybe he would have grown up tougher and punched them back...likely knocking them out as he is made of granite. Also after he broke their arm trying to block one of his monster dunks they might have just got out of the way...or if they were playing today they would be out of the league for fighting and technicals etc so really its all conjecture. Can't have it both ways. Can't just say he would be soft if he grew up in that era...nor the other way around.

    I neglected to mention Moses Malone.  He would drown his prey with the sweat of a thousand men.  HAHA!

    You mean Larry Bird who came in 22 years old vs 18 year old Lebron. Larry who played on some of the most loaded Boston Celtic teams of all time? Larry was great but I'm sorry he was not as good as Lebron. It isn't that close really. Larry had so many more advantages over Lebron in who he played with it isn't even close. Larry played with like 4 or 5 of the NBAs 50 greatest of all time. Lebron has played with one. It's all opinions and I grew up watching Larry but I can't put him ahead of Lebron. There is no question Larry is a superior shooter but Lebron can do things on the court that no man can. I hate to give Lebron any props at all but putting Kobe or some of these other guys on his level that only effected portions of the game and not all facets is a disservice to him. I will admit Larry and Magic affected the game in a similar all encompassing way but Lebron is just a level above in how he makes his team better.

    I think Lebron is as bad as any player I have ever seen.

    Lebron would have cried to his daddy after Laimbeer, Mahorn or Oakley fouled him.  He is one of the biggest crybabies I have ever seen.  Bird did not cry....he punched them in the face :)
