  1. This is why you draft o-line early. This should have been the case for the previous drafts. I'm getting really tired of hearing about the worthiness of o-line talent in the first round. Who gives a crap to be completely honest? After Andrew luck was drafted in 2012, an offensive lineman himself, turned GM should know how hard it is to be successful without an o-line. We as colts fans have known this since 2006. Without an o-line the colts can go anywhere. I'm getting really tired of hearing defense year in and year out, when without a defensive line, the CBs can't cover nor can the safeties be what they were supposed to be. Nor can the linebackers get into the backfield.

     

    THE OLDEST FACT ABOUT FOOTBALL = YOU WIN GAMES IN THE TRENCHES. I have heard this my entire life, yet I watch a PROFESSIONAL General Manager continue to ignore both offensive line, AND defensive line. 

     

    want an elite offense? You have to draft o-line early. Rounds 1 and 2. Lets be honest. Before grigson our only quality offensive lineman was castanzo. Obviously the line was in need of a complete rebuild, so why would anyone in their right mind draft second string offensive lineman? Especially a former lineman? Maybe because he wasn't a first string offensive lineman himself and wanted to return to the glory days when he wanted to start but "never got a true chance". Our o-line gets blown off the ball more often than not. Same for d-line. 

     

    Want an elite defense? Then you have to draft D-line early. In the first 3 rounds. 

     

    Having elite skill positions like - WR, RB, TE, S, CB, LB, is really an unneeded luxury. And it's easier to become elite at those positions, than it is for lineman to learn and become elite. 

     

    its easier to find elite skilled position players in the later rounds (4-7) than it is to find elite lineman for O or D in the later rounds.

     

    the concept of what you need to be elite is easier than our front office is making it to be.

     

    im just curious for anyone reading this. How many late round lineman are in the NFL as starters?

    And how many late round skill position players are starters?

     

    FIRE THE COACHING STAFF PLEASE. 

  2. I might be done watching the NFL if this staff isn't at least fired by the end of next season. Who knows maybe they will put it all together in the offseason lol

  4. Personally I don't get this. I mean I understand the win now mentality and all but that hasn't gotten us anywhere good for the last 5 years. The cowboys went to the oline and look at what a rookie QB is doing, who probably isn't as good as his oline suggests. The colts need need to keep making the not so sexy pick. Castanzo isn't LT material. He need shifted to RG. Do do you it's know of any LTs coming out of college that would be better?
  5. If I remember correctly, polian always stressed drafting highly skilled WRs when it came to route running. Marvin was the best, but they all were at least decent at it. Our guys may have straight line speed but idk about much else.
  6. Yeah I looked at his past posts and while they aren't positive, neither are a lot of my previous posts other than thinking (hoping) the colts were getting hot at the right time. I know a lot of colts fans have been butting heads especially this season because we are all looking for colts success like the good ole days and even better. This season has been a pretty huge disapointment since game one. The only game the colts have played to their potential was against the jets who have no reason to live apparently. (At least we aren't jets fans) Hard to watch this team go
  7. Calling the colts losers isn't something a troll would say. In fact, after what happened last year a lot of fans were calling the colts losers. This year? They have managed to be worse with a healthy Andrew Luck. How is it possible to backslide like this? Well because the colts have been sucking slightly less than the rest of the division for the last 5 years. Its awesome to have these franchise QBs without surrounding them with a real team and real coaches. Our franchise will not be a dynasty anytime soon with this current owner and staff. Losers find a way way to lo
  8. You need a GM that has the guts to stop making sexy picks, and draft 3 first round offensive lineman. You need a line that can get 1 dang yard when they decide to. This line has NOT improved that much because they are still letting Luck get hit too much when Luck is making better decisions. HC needs to be able to motivate his players. I haven't seen a team play with so little heart since Jim Caldwell was the coach. And hardly ever in the manning era. You know what it looks like. We need to review our health staff hard core this off season. Even looking for outside sou
  9. The plan is to have a game day play book that they use from front to back. Or they ask madden. Leaning towards madden.
  10. Worst game of the year by far. Stakes were high, poor poor effort against a team on a 3 game losing streak.
  11. Andrew Luck being the most hit QB won't change without legit oline play. Unless they're of a 3rd round talent you gotta go oline round 1. We also can't afford to become one dimensional without a running game. Need oline.
  12. Because grigson has failed in the past we have to become patient again and draft oline. I'm not saying to ignore our bad D, but the Dline isn't far off if we have a more consistent pass rusher drafted which, this is a deep draft for no?
