  1. https://coltswire.usatoday.com/2021/05/14/indianapolis-colts-eric-fisher-contract-voidable-year-2022/
  2. Adam Shefter is reporting that it's a one-year deal at $9.4 million. There may be some cap management voodoo going on with it though, so the details could still be a bit murky. If he comes back close to his Pro Bowl form, it's a bargain, and if not, there isn't any long-term cap damage. I think he is certainly worth the gamble.
  3. Leno looks like a no-brainer. He was a cap casualty in Chicago, and seems to have plenty of mileage left in him. And what about Villanueva? Is he a viable option?
  4. Seems like a good guy, and I wish him the best, but it just doesn't make sense to burn a roster spot and pay a lot for guy run the QB sneak or some gadget play a couple of times per game. I look for Miami to use that first-round pick on a QB, call it a day with Tua, and have Brissett start the first few games this season before turning it over to the new kid. Maybe Eason is the right #2 guy, and maybe not. Guess we'll all know more after we see what the Colts do in FA and the draft.
  5. Picking up Buckner was a no-brainer. The Colts could have drafted a d-lineman and hoped that he turned out to be a Pro Bowl-caliber stud, but instead they just hired a proven beast. Acquiring Rivers may have been more important overall to team success (what kind of disaster would this season have been with Brisket still under center?), but Buckner may be the best player, regardless of position, on the team.
  6. A pessimist looks at the results of this first game and thinks, "Well, crappola. There goes the AFC South title." An optimist looks at the results of this first game and thinks, "Hot damm! We're off to a great start in the Trevor Lawrence Sweepstakes!"
  7. For those of you with DirecTV, Sunday Ticket is having a free preview weekend this week. I dropped ST when Luck bailed out, and won't subscribe again, but I'll probably tune in for a quarter or so of the Colts' game. Weather is still too nice to be stuck inside on a Sunday afternoon.
  8. Maybe Clowney will repeat last year's spectacular 3-sack season with the Titans. [/sarc] At least that Titans' roller derby uniform suits him.
  9. I would really like to see him take some punt returns. That could be really entertaining.
  10. Maybe not any home runs, but Pittman and Taylor were both solid, line-drive doubles off the left field fence. The rest are pretty much unknown quantities at the moment, but I'm intrigued by Rodgers' speed and elusiveness, and what he might contribute in the return game. As ol' Al Davis used to say, "You can't teach speed."
  11. It's probably going to be some team like JAX. Baltimore and KC are already going to be heavy favorites against the Colts. There always seems to be a loss against some bunch of hapless slappies like the Jags that the Colts should beat, but they have a letdown and find a way to lose. That one unexpected loss could mean the difference of making the playoff or going home.
  12. No, he will learn primarily from his coaches, not from Mack. Mack's job is to keep his roster spot, not run a school for rookie running backs. If Mack mentors him by helping him adjust to life in the NFL, great. Just don't expect him to be out there coaching him up or reading him bedtime stories from the playbook. I also don't think the term "starter" has as much meaning as it used to. The depth chart may say one thing, but both of these guys should be prepared to take the first offensive snap of every game, barring injury.
  13. I think we should send flowers and a box of chocolates to the Packers, thanking them for taking the other J. Love option off the table. This one looks like a better prospect.
  14. I'm sorry, Love fans, but I just don't see Ballard giving up anything for any questionable QB who might sit for a couple of years and take some "garbage time" snaps behind Rivers. There are too many other holes to fill right now, especially WR, CB, and possibly OT and TE. There isn't a true "franchise" QB prospect after Burrow, Tua, and possibly Herbert are off the board. JB is still on the roster, at least as of today, and carrying a third QB on the 53-man roster just doesn't make a whole lot of sense. If I was betting on this, my money would be on the best available WR with #34, and the best
