  1. I saw on CBS sports schedule tracker Colts at saints is the December 16th MNF game. I’ll just wait and see what comes out at 8
  2. People will show up for the draft and then be back for training camp.
  3. Can we agree Cain needs to at least play in a regular season game before we call him great? I like Cain and I am excited to see what he can do but calling him great now isn’t true.
  4. Makes sense that the Colts kicked the tires given Ballard’s ties to KC.
  5. Good short term solution which it is intended to be.
  6. The more I hear about Lynch I hope the Colts land him.
  7. I like bringing him back on a one year deal. If he proves he can stay healthy I think they invest him long term next season. If he struggles to stay healthy I think the Colts move on from him
  8. Peter king was on Dan Patrick earlier this week and was asked about all the teams spending crazy money. King said that never works and if you look it’s the same teams doing it all the time because they are poorly run. He then said a smart team like the Colts will start spending when the crazy money stops.
  9. As long as he’s not playing corner and sticks to special teams I am good with it.
  10. Meanwhile Polian approached free agency much like Ballard is doing. Which GM would people rather Ballard try to be like?
  11. I heard Peter King on the radio today say the smart teams like the Colts aren’t going to spend much until the crazy money dies down even though they have money to spend.
  12. So much outrage over a one year contract... This is a very low risk type of deal. If he doesn’t workout you just let him walk like they are doing with Grant. Its not like the Colts are up against the cap either and they have to let other guys go because of this contract. There is no risk here so why are people so upset? The most it will cost them is maybe Inman who seems more interested in coming back and the local media seems to want back more than the Colts seem interested in bringing back.
  13. No, No, No, heck No, No, No. are you a raiders fan? And NO.
  14. 26: R1P26 CB TRAYVON MULLEN CLEMSON 34: R2P2 EDGE CLELIN FERRELL CLEMSON 59: R2P27 WR DK METCALF OLE MISS 89: R3P25 S JUAN THORNHILL VIRGINIA 129: R4P27 LB TERRILL HANKS NEW MEXICO STATE 135: R4P33 G DRU SAMIA OKLAHOMA 164: R5P26 DL DAYLON MACK TEXAS A&M 199: R6P26 DL JONATHAN LEDBETTER GEORGIA 240: R7P26 OT YOSH NIJMAN VIRGINIA TECH i just stuck to the board and took the best guy who fit a need. I don’t think it’s too realistic as I got three guys who will probably go in the first round.
  15. Wouldn’t be my first choice but I doubt Ballard will ask me.
  16. I’d be beyond ecstatic if Ballard can repeat the success of last years draft but I am not counting on that. He had two all pros as rookies in that class. That’s been done one other time in NFL history so I don’t expect Ballard to pull it off two years in a row.
  17. Brock never played for the Eagles they let him go because they ran out of money to sign him. So his first action was as a Colt. He was basically an undrafted free agent pickup for the Colts. As far as Stokley the OP was specifically talking about the 06 championship team. He wasn’t a starter on that team. The Colts starters that year can be found here. https://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/clt/2006_roster.htm If you count the kickers 22 of the 24 starters were drafted by the Colts Or signed as undrafted free agents. The only two not drafted by the Colts or signed as undrafted free agents (which Brock essentially was due to the Eagles running out of money to sign him) were Booger and Adam. The only real starter for the bulk of the season they have listed that didn’t play a major role in the Super Bowl was Gardner who was replaced by Morris a Colts draft pick. again you are splitting hairs over the original posters main point. The Colts team in 2006 that won the Super Bowl was largely home grown not built on big name free agents from other teams.
  18. Actually it is true. Booger and Adam were the only players on that team that were starters that weren’t drafted or signed with the Colts as undrafted free agents. Again Stokely wasn’t a “starter” the Colts started two tight ends rather than three WRs. Stokely only played in four games that year starting one. That hardly makes him a starter. Her larger point was the Colts were largely home grown and not built via free agents from other teams. Adam was the only guy for the Colts who started in the Super Bowl who was a free agent pick up from another team and no one is going to count Saturday as a true free agent pickup from another team unless you are trying to win a technicality argument. The only other guy that wasn’t an UDFA or draft pick who started was Booger.
  19. Booger was a trade not a free agent signing. stokely was on IR and wasn’t a “starter” he was basically a sixth man in basketball saturday was an undrafted free agent pick up. Yes he was with the Ravens briefly before he landed in Indy but he never played a game for them so he’s pretty much viewed as an undrafted free agent pick up. harper was an undrafted free agent pick up from the CFL. Adam was the only true free agent pick up starter in the super bowl. So all but two of the starters if you are counting the kickers were home grown. I think that was more her point.
  20. Just a reminder the thought in 2001 when the Colts were in a similar spot was that they had to go defense, in particular cornerback. Their first round pick? A WR named Reggie Wayne. People freaked out because the Colts didn’t need another WR because they had Marvin and they passed on cornerbacks who end up out of the league in a couple of years. My point is this, if there is a WR there Ballard likes he should grab him. For the record i’d Say the samething if they like a defensive guy on the board. Draft the guy they think will be the best player for them that fills a needs which on this team is pretty much anyone who isn’t a QB, tightend, or some form of a kicker.
  21. WR or d end would make a lot of sense and odds are where the Colts are picking there will probably be a first round WR more than a first round end.
  22. The NFL doesn’t have an offical executive of the year award. There are ones awarded by different media outlets but no offical league award for it.
