  1. This OL is going to end up "andrew lucking" Wentz
  2. This defense is garbage ... the colts look terrible (terribly coached?) on both sides of the ball
  3. Comparing Tevi to Castonzo is an insult to Castonzo ... I don't care what the stats look like on paper. The Chargers would not have let Tevi go and spent a high 1st on a Tackle if Tevi was even close to Castonzo's level.
  4. Clearly he liked him...hopefully he's the next Mathis or Freeney ... as I said above if one of these 2 pass rushers don't hit big he's going to start taking heat from both fans and media.
  5. I guess...he better hope one of these 2 picks hit big or the "In Ballatd we trust" Fan club is going to start losing members and fans are going to start losing patience.
  6. I get that he doing a little overreacting, but you are keep glossing over/downplaying the severity of the injury part. So he's a bottom of the 1st round pick healthy and we grab him at #54 with a torn achilles. This isn't an ACL or getting him in the 3rd (or later)... which I think a lot of people would have seen as more of a value risk/reward pick. But, we literally only dropped him 1/2 of a round for a torn Achilles; thats a lot more risk than reward IMO.
  7. Haven't even seen Mack play since the injury. I would err on the side of caution and look at the number of players who have successfully come back from an injury until the procedure for that injury had advanced enough that coming back and playing at a high level was was viewed as high probability.
  8. Complaining or not agreeing doesn't mean the sky is falling ... the "Ballard can do no wrong crowd" is almost as amusing. Especially since part of the reason for doubling down there is that his previous picks for pass rush are not necessarily setting the world on fire.
  9. If they couldnt trade back they could have picked another position ... it's not like the Colts are so deep at other positions they couldn't have chosen a player that would have contributed. The didn't HAVE to take an OT or DL there.
  10. Hate this pick ... the colts don't have the luxury of redshirt risks in the 2nd round ..especially at a position where Ballard hasn't shown he necessarily has an eye for.... if the OT were reaching we should have chosen a different position or traded back.
  11. I would have bet a 7th round pick it was a bluff. If he followed through on his threat you lost a 7th round pick, no big deal. The reward far outweighed the risk IMO.
  12. There's only 3 worth considering. 2 Lottery tickets - maybe the could be reclaimed ... Trubisky and Winston. 1 Bridge QB - bring him in to help Eason or rookie ... Fitz. The rest have no upside, no real shot at the SB ...all they would do is keep us mediocre another year so we finished out of the hunt, but out of the good draft pick range as well. I say shoot big or fall on our face ...this mediocre 8-8, 9-7 etc is a waste.
  13. The way he handled it left us no backup plan. He should have let someone know much earlier that the injury was causing him to question his priorities. I don't believe that he had not been thinking about this for a while. I suspected from early on that one day one of his other interests might possibly replace football as a priority. I find it hard to believe he wasn't aware he wasn't one of those guys that lived and breathed football. His major injuries and complications started early enough we could have either drafted a potential replacement or acquired draft assets in preparation for him possibly deciding his priority was not football if he would have made the Colts aware earlier.
  14. I'll say what I am sure many are thinking, but don't want the backlash from this Luck "rear kissing" party. Grigson started preparing the QB purgatory recipe and Luck made sure it was fully cooked. Can't believe the same people who rail on Grigson give Luck a free pass.
  15. Then you choose one of the other options I listed ...just about any option is better than JB.
  16. Jacoby as starter is a wasted season (I don't think I could stomach another season of JB). A mediocre record not good enough to really compete and not bad enough to get a top pick. They either need to invest in a vet like Stafford, Ryan, etc that gives us a realistic chance to compete next season or go all in on a "boom/bust" whether that is getting someone like a Winston or Darnold, throwing Eason into the fire, or paying the price to move up for a rookie; that way we at least have a good shot of getting a good draft pick if it doesn't work out. Jacoby. Dalton, Fitz, etc ... just keep the Colts stuck in mediocrity. Ballard is eventually going to have to take a chance one way or the other. You can only sit on the fence waiting for the "perfect prospect" for so long ; especially drafting in the middle void of round 1.
  17. I like aggressive... But I take the points there. Even if you are going to go for it put JB in; that gives you so many more options you have snuck it with JB enough times now that's what they are expecting, it opens up other options. That seems like the type of situation you have been setting up with all of JBs QB sneaks, now he comes in and throws it, etc.
  18. Winning doesn't change the fact of how bad Reich's play calling was. D bailed him out.
