    Double ewwwwww! lol

     

    All ND. I like IU too, but only for B-ball. Grew up loving Lou Holtz and The General.

     

    I was a big fan of Jimmy Harbaugh though when he played for the Colts. Once a Colt, all past is forgiven :-). 

     

    Just kidding though about the Pacer FB jersey. I'd wear it as long as there's Pacers clearly labeled. It would have to be a #31 though.

    Im a ND fan (football) and IU fan (basketball).  My classmate played for IU basketball.

    Ok...   look at your own post again.   Several points.   Ballard has never traded up in the first round.   In fact he said that while he’d never say never, he said he’s not likely to trade up in the first because it’s WAY too expensive. 
     

    Second...   in the four drafts he’s done with the Colts, on the handful of times he’s traded up its only like 2-4 spots.   That’s it.   One exception....   we traded two low 4th round picks for one high 4th round pick for Willis.   That’s as close as we’ve come to moving a good distance.   With Pennel, we’d be trading up from roughly the mid-20’s to pick 2 or 3.   Way, WAY too expensive.

     

    Third,  Pennel is a LT.   We’d draft him to replace Castanzo.  You mention him as a “lg”.   I suspect that’s just a typo.  Pennel is not playing guard for anyone. He’s a pure Left Tackle. 

    I think he's talking about being next to Big Q (best LG).

    IMO, Taylor doesn't run like Barkley.  Barkley has more shake.  Taylor runs more like Frank Gore or Nick Chubb.  Although he has some shake, I think the style he ran at WI was more of a one cut and straight ahead guy.  

     

    Even though he doesn't have a lot of catches, he seems to do well with the opportunities hes had.

     

    The fumbles look like they are the result of trying to hit the home run on every play.  Something a 4.39 runner probably thinks he can do a lot.  He may have to dial back that thinking in the NFL to seize only the opportunities that are really likely to produce a TD.

    Taylor didn't need the shake, he was already gone to the house with that burst.

    Didn’t David Johnson emerge on the scene under Arians when he was coach of the Cardinals?  Or was Arians not there or already gone?  I thought that’s under Arians Johnson emerged as one of the most versatile backs in the league?

    David Johnson went to the Cardinals in 2015, and Bruce was head coach there from 2013-2017

    I'm sorry you judge accuracy by numbers.  I judged it by watching him throw.  By watching him throw place the ball exactly where the receiver was running and releasing the ball before the wr even started his break.  I watched him do that time and time and time again.  

     

    And nope, I didn't see how weak his arm was at the combine, I saw he didn't have as strong an arm as someone like Eason but when it came to actually measuring the velocity of the ball, he was right there at 53 MPH, right in the average NFL arm.

    I really wanted to like Hurts as a QB, so i watched every game of his 2019 season and he is not a good QB.  

    I like Herbert a lot and if I were in the war room and it was between Herbert and Fromm, I'd take Herbert, but none of that takes away from Fromm's attributes.

    This whole paragraph is a joke, he loses 4 WRs, his TE, his RB and his center but it's the same team?  And I'm guessing politics didn't have anything to do with it, but it probably had everything to do with Fromm was the better choice for what the coach wanted to do and Fields did not want to sit for a year.  Either way, Fields is the one that left with his tail between his legs, not Fromm.

    Didn't Burrow leave to join LSU as well when Fields was the starter for Ohio State?

    I think injuries had alot to do with myself. 

    I can somewhat agree to that but Luck could throw to any wr (with anticipation and touch) unlike Briskett.

    As I said above, we had just signed Funchess, who we thought would be a good WR2, and drafted Parris Campbell just a few picks before. AJ Brown is nice, and was a great prospect, but you don't go back to back at WR unless you have no other holes and a massive gap at WR. We had neither at that time.

    I think going from Luck (retirement) to Briskett exposed that weakness with the WR group.

    I'd still like to pick up some help from the secondary.   Personally I'd love to go after Duron Harmon from the Patriots, on the theory that they won't trade Gilmore or either McCourty for any money, but want to cut costs, Harmon might be available and would be a great veteran leader for a very young unit.

    Harmon was traded to the Lions.
