  1. James was a great "three down back". Never came off field. Taylor is fun to watch. They should run him more. Can you imagine being Frank Gore. blows out both knees early in career, and then goes on for 10 more years in several teams.
  2. For a change, I'm not too * off about the game. Colts just did not have enough healthy defenders in the secondary to finish what they started. The defense could not get off the field, the rush got tired. it all boils down to depth. Yes all teams have injuries. The Colts have decent starters, but they are backed up by practice squad players that are not starters and never will be. They are flush with running backs. The o-line played well considering they are banged up. Offensively the competed last night. Defensively they held up for three quarters.
  3. back the play up even farther. This was going on all game long between them.
  4. Say the Colts go 0-17. Will the Colts trade back several times to use all the extra picks in rounds 4-6? Or will they take another developmental player from the rugby leagues in Baswana.?
  5. After the first five seasons, the team was built to win 11 or better games a year for the next 10 years. Ballard's next 10 years most likely will never happen due to a lack of talent brought in which will facilitate his departure in the next 2 or 3 years.
  6. you should know bandwagon fans. you have seen the Colts suck more than most of the people on here. Its funny, the franchise is back to being what it was when it left Baltimore in the middle of the nite. No more Lucks or Mannings. Omg! the browns and the Bengals are better!!!
  7. Isn't it great to be a Colt fan!!!! Always predictable, faithful and behind in points. This group needs to stick to the entertaining of children at the hospital down town. Its a good thing the owner cares more about rock and roll and guitars than he does about fielding a good product on the gridiron.
  8. If the Colts had picked the best player available in the positions of most need over the last 4 years, the roster would look a lot different than this. The left tackle is indy's only rock star. He is the only athlete on this team that could start elsewhere. And now he is out for how long? Note: Titan's turn the ball over 3 times today and the Colts still lost. take those turnovers away and the Colts get blown out.
  9. Turn out the lights, the party is over.
  10. Colts are terrible at developing players. They draft them, talk glowingly about their abilities and deactivate them every other week. you can do this if you have great players in place. Jim Sorgi and Curtis painter come to mind. Colts have not the talent or the coaching to draft mid to lower talent athletes. Its a waste of time. The Colts had plenty of money to improve through free agency. This team is going by the way of the Bengals of years past. Draft early every year but make no progress. Colts have gotten e few good draft picks like Nelson, quite paye, but they can't be healthy and counted on to play every week. Nelson has been a rock up to now. But will this be a new trend?
  11. Don't matter the quality of any receiver. you can be slow as hell and have descent hands against the colts secondary and have all pro weekends. Any QB that has 6 seconds to throw will beat the best of any backfield. I was hoping for a better year or at least top last year. it will not happen. As long as they draft the third and forth best at the different position groups and always looking for a deal. I'm sure next years crop will have some hurt athletes that will come cheap. I'm sure its hard to find top notch athletes that are man of the year prospects. "Kick the stigma", how about get better players. By the way, let your QB's remain sidelined until the OL can prove they can play pro football. Jeezz.
  12. why was he picked with brown or metcaf available? I think they picked Art shlister because he was from Ohio state also.
  13. the only problem is, they are going to waste another season at the position. what they should do is cut him and fill his position with an able bodied reciever.
  14. If we can beat this team and maybe that team, the schedule will be easier and we can limp into the playoffs. This is total mediocrity. When you can't beat the better teams then why wish for the playoffs? Why make excuses and dream of making the playoffs when your shelling out 2 grand for season tickets and the game is a 3 hour distraction before going to work in the morning? I used to get really excited about Colts football. Loosing games really sucked. Now, I spend my time fishing the Gulf Stream for dolphin and wahoo, with one ear on the scores and the other on the boat engine. When I come back with 150 lbs of fish, the Colts loosing has minimal impact.
  15. everyone wonders if Eason will be of any use as a QB. Well, this all could have been put to rest last year but they had to deal with the delicate Brissett situation instead. Eason should have been given all those 4th and ones to get some playing time. As for Fig Newton. He was a one hit wonder. Cant read defense, after shoulder surgery he can't throw. He will run for a little while but he is getting old. If things get tuff he hides on the bench with a towel over his head.
  16. Just think for a moment. If the Colts had activated Eason last year instead of sticking with Brissett, they could of let him run those 4th and 1 plays and get him some game time under his belt. I think he will do fine.
  17. Out of those two options, who will be the bigger* if Wentz takes a beating and all goes south?
  18. You know what. I read posters saying this is probably due to Wentz's injury history. Wentz would fair far more better with a good left tackle than a barely 6 foot qb from a running program that passing is an afterthought. Why waste a pick on this guy? Colts pick a safety that cannot cover man to man. Back up at best if he can stick on an NFL roster. Colts pick a receiver that is tall and fairly quick, but is a raw project. One OT they picked is projected to be a half decent back up with short arms and will struggle against NFL edge rushers. Their number one pick in the draft has one move in his arsenal and that is telling anyone who would listen about him and his momma's struggles in life. What happened! this draft is so deep in left tackles? Every team got one except indy. Once again, the QB pick was just plain stupid. If Eason is no good, then can him! How would they know anyway? Brissett was coddled and favored over the other qb's for far too long. If you all dought anything I have said about these draft picks, just read the scouting reports on these guys.
  19. I don't care for all the feel good "stories" with the tinkly piano music. We have all fought hard for what we got. Can He Play!
  20. Bert Jones not getting slammed onto the Arrowhead stadium floor. 15 to 16 years of him at QB would have either kept them in Baltimore or he would have been fun to watch in the hoosier dome.
  21. your right about that. Hines running off the right tackle in the double tight end package just doesn't work. He is not big enough to run through a phone booth.
  22. As strong as the running game could be you have to temper one's expectations. Every year we have a particular position that has plenty of depth. one year it was linebackers, the next was the offensive line so on and so on. Well, by the time training camp was over all the depth evaporated and the next man up becomes the popular catch phrase. Every year all teams have injuries. But the Colts seem to get it bad every year. Lets hope the Colts can field 80 percent of their starters 90 percent of the time. Sounds like a very tall order to Me.
  23. keep hooker. he is still young. he is a playmaker in the right scheme.
  24. Lets sign hooker and be done with it.
