  1. I get that and I think it’s possible to feel both. I know I do.
  2. Brackett was often an underrated player here but Leonard has surpassed Gary already. That’s no disrespect to Gary either. Leonard is a superstar.
  3. I would think it would be the reverse because if you opt out it requires the team to replace you and if your a fringe player once your replaced you generally don’t get your job back.
  4. Yes because how dare someone put his well being ahead of your entertainment. With that said the only thing I saw was that he thought about it did research and decided not too.
  5. I’ll believe when he’s playing football games until then I am going to take it when the whole shaker of salt.
  6. Make the best call you can based on practice and keep the other one on speed dial just in case.
  7. You might be but if you listen to the Colts they aren’t. Jacoby is the backup and Eason and Kelly are fighting for the third spot. I really doubt Kelly is going to beat out the new draft pick.
  8. Yeah that was all Curtis painter’s doing.
  9. A QB the Colts will cut this pre-season that will send the forum into a meltdown until real games start.
  10. Don’t trust message board GMs. As for the article at large another reason to like Ballard.
  11. I think the 2009 team gets a raw deal when people talk about the talent on that roster. Honestly had it not been for throwing the Jets game and an onside kick in the Super Bowl that team could have been 19-0. You don’t do that unless you have a crazy amount of talent.
  12. 30 games without a sack says otherwise. Did he have bad plays? Sure. Show me a player in the NFL that doesn’t. If you don’t think the Colts are going to re-sign Nelson you aren’t listening to Ballard. He’s always talked about drafting and then keeping your own. Nelson is exactly the type of player he’s talking about when he says bills come down. We watched the Colts handed a franchise QB in Andrew Luck and saw his career destroyed by injuries because he never really had a line in front of him. Why on earth would you want to give away your best lineman because he’s going to be expensive after seeing that? News flash good players in the NFL are expensive and you can’t build a good team nickel and dimming everywhere. On top of that the Colts can afford Nelson. The Chiefs just gave how much to Mahomes? Yet they can still afford to pay other players. The Colts aren’t going to have any kind of contract like that for a long time thanks to not having a line to protect Luck. They can afford Nelson because while he’s going to get a record payday for a guard he’s still not going to get QB type money. On top of that a large part of these big deals is how are they setup. Just about every deal Ballard has signed has been team friendly. I highly doubt he’s going to change that for Nelson. He will structure the contract so Nelson gets paid what he’s worth but also so it works for the Colts. Yes the salary cap won’t let you keep everyone but unless you don’t know what you are doing with the cap it let’s you keep guys like Nelson.
