  1. Agreed. What team today is QB-starved enough to trade for JB, especially this late in the preseason when rosters are pretty much set? I don't see a playoff-caliber team out there which, if they lost their starter, could still be competitive with JB under center. And that includes the Colts.
  2. One of the best backup QBs in the league? Hardly. At least not from what I saw in that first preseason game. Brissett and Walker both frankly sucked and Kelly looked pretty good playing against a bunch of guys who will probably be working in a car wash or selling life insurance come September. No, what we have are three guys who could probably take a few snaps and hand the ball off or take a knee, or possibly pick up a quarter or so in a blowout game. But if any of those three guys have to take a significant number of snaps we're going 5-11 at best.
  3. The conspiracy theorist in me can't help but wonder if there could more to this than just a lingering "calf strain". Are the Colts using the calf strain as an excuse to keep him out of practice while he's also having a more serious issue with his shoulder? At this point, injuries don't have to be reported like they are during the regular season (thanks, Vegas!), so you could theoretically use a hangnail as an excuse to cover something far more serious. Historically, the Colts haven't been very forthcoming about Luck's injuries, and there have been reports that he is still working with Tom House. OK... fire at will. Now where did I put my flameproof suit?
  4. Nexstar is having a financial dispute with DirecTV, and their stations, including the local ABC channel in my area, are off the air. Depending on where you live, you may have lost NBC, CBS, Fox and/or ABC plus a bunch of "junk channels". My CBS local channel is not Nexstar, so it's still available. ABC has seemingly morphed into the Bachelor(ette)/Game Show Channel, so I don't think I'll miss it if it never comes back. Sunday Ticket is a separate deal with the NFL, so it should still be OK.
  5. Is there a Vegas line on when he'll drop his first ^^^?
  6. Perhaps it was because all of the guys he flattened last season were still mad about being publicly humiliated and refused to vote for him. That could take away a whole lot of votes. Lots of flat guys last season. Probably a whole lot more this year.
  7. Well, TY is, after all, a ghost. Voters probably didn't see half of what he did.
  8. You're a better man than I am, Tweezy. I could only stand about two minutes of it, and my gag reflex was already kickin' in. If they used this video on prisoners at Gitmo it would be considered inhumane.
  9. Probably not a good way to start the season for a guy who was already going to have to fight for a spot on the roster. Any clue as to what his injury might be?
  10. He's like so many other QBs in the NFL that are just "adequate". He will get you enough wins to keep you from picking high in the draft, but he's not enough to get you a Lombardi.
  11. At some point, those extra draft picks become more of a liability than an asset. It's great to have ten+ picks when your roster is thin, but where would you put another ten guys, or even just seven or eight, if you had to add them to the Colts' roster right now? Who do you move down (or off) the depth chart to make room for another 2nd or 3rd round pick? I know what Ballard has been saying all along, but if there is an opportunity for him to package some of those 2020 picks to move up for a stud difference maker, I would be happy to see him do it.
  12. Heck, I wish I'd picked up a bunch of Strats back in the 60s. Every kid in California thought he could be a rock star, and either bought a Strat or a Tele. After a few months in a garage with some equally untalented buddies, they were giving it up. You could buy all the barely-used, pre-CBS Strats you wanted for half of what they paid for it, and sometimes they'd throw in the amp just to get some of their money back. And investment in plain old "unfamous" Strats would have probably done a bit better than the stock market since those days.
  13. I certainly think Hooker has the potential to become elite, but his body of work just isn't extensive enough yet to know if that potential will be realized. But he's coming into training camp completely healthy for the first time so we may finally have an opportunity to see that potential turn into production this season. The Colts have some good looking and promising pieces in the secondary this season. If Hooker is truly healthy (and can stay that way), along with Desir, Wilson, Moore, Ya-Sin, and Geathers, this won't be a fun group for opposing QBs to throw into.
  14. Meh. Who really cares? If this happened to any other NFL owner (well, other than Jim Irsay, perhaps) no one would have posted a single word about it here. It has zero impact on any play, in game the Colts are going to play this season, even if they face the Pats in the AFC Championship game.
