    I think the Colts will move on from Adam.  Even if he wants to play I can't see them risking him having another injury at 47 years old.  Then it's deja vu all over again.  I don't think they want to revisit that nightmare.  

    I agree but I expect Adam to retire before that happens.  If he doesn’t then yes I think they will let him walk.

  2. Not surprised.  Once the new kid showed he’s worth taking a hard look at I figured this would happen.

    That’s my thinking as well. Chase did well.


    I don’t think he retires tho

    If he doesn’t I doubt the Colts bring him back.

    I'm posting this for the last time,   I promise.  :thinking: I will never understand the Hoyer signing??????????????

    Kelly was suspended for two weeks they needed a backup QB who could learn the offense quickly.  That equals vet.  The other choice was Philip Walker and he can’t play vs other teams scrubs.

    This could  be a blessing in disguise. If we pick in the top-15 we have a shot at a good quarterback. We also have Washington's second round paid that could be top 5.

    I’ve seen some mock drafts that have the Oregon kid falling to the Colts and that was before this loss.  If the Colts are going to get a QB watching what the Bengals do at number will be big.  If they take Young out of OSU number one a QB will probably slip to the Colts.  If they take Burrow the Colts will may have to go up and get one if they want one.

    Willis,  Ya sin., banagu

    I am not giving up on Banagu in anyway but I actually expected more out of him when Turey went down.  With that said he’s a rookie and a bit of a project.  I don’t think he’s close to a finished product yet.


    ill add one more to your list.  Tell has done really well at moving to corner for a rookie.  I am excited to see what he develops into.

    What games do we lose if Andrew didn't retire?

    It’s really too hard to tell.  The Colts have played so many one score games this year all it takes is one little thing to be different to change the outcome.  For example Luck was normally good for one “what were you doing” INT every two or three games.  Yes he’d make more big plays than Jacoby but it’s also possible maybe he makes a few more costly mistakes than Jacoby does.

    I doubt that.

    I think so.  If he picks the wrong guy to be QB, rather it’s Jacoby or someone else the team is in all likely hood going to struggle and that will eventually get a GM fired.  Not next season mind you but ultimately.

  8. I think Ballard will ultimately be judged on what he does or doesn’t do this off-season.  Namely at the QB position.  Most give him a pass right now because there wasn’t much he could do two weeks before the season at that position beyond what he’s done.  This off-season he has to find “the guy” rather it’s Jacoby or someone else.  If he’s right he’s going to be praised.  If he’s wrong it will probably ultimately lead to him being fired.

    Flus has been playing Hooker close to the LOS.    In not sure why 

    That’s true but there are times he’s been back there and taking a bad angle or just flat out covered wrong or been hesitant in getting back in coverage.  Normally when he does these things it’s lead to a huge play for the other team.  Maybe that’s just him playing a position that’s sorta like being lineman.  He can play well all game but one play and all people notice is the one play.  Maybe it’s just a badly timed slump.  Maybe he’s hurt more than we realize but I just know over the past three weeks when he shows up it’s normally been for bad things.

    The game is highly competitive.  There is a fine line between winning and losing.


    If you told me that we could build a great oline by stacking it with mid to high first rounders across each position, then I would expect the team to be able to run the ball whenever it wanted to even when the opposing defense was stacking the box. 


    I don't think that is reality.  So I'm saying a team needs to have elite talent in several positions throughout the field. 


    I simply don't see that with the Colts roster, especially the game-day roster we've had active the past few weeks.

    I agree with the later.  They clearly still have more building to do.

    I think we need to punish Chad for all his maturity issues by starting him next week on the road vs the Saints.

    I know you are joking here but once the Colts are officially eliminated from playoff contention it would be smart to see what they have in Kelly unless they really feel like Brissett is the franchise guy.  Personally I don’t think he is and I don’t think Kelly is either but I would understand seeing what exactly they have in him.

    Not sure what JB is doing during halftime, but it ain't working.  Completely different QB in the second half today??

    I think it’s more what other teams are doing IE adjusting to what they saw in the first half.

    Pascal reminds me of Hines Ward. Tough, Physical, and can block and catch. I like Johnson too good hands. I just wish we had some taller possesion types. TY Pascal and Johnson are all short lol.

    I can see that.  I think a poor man’s Hines Ward is a good way to describe him.

    Ok.  One of the reasons I didn't not mention any player or GMs name is because I'm not trying to affix blame.  We can look at any decision and reason that it was the best thing to do at the time.


    I was trying to keep it at the 30,000 foot level and just look at the amount of impact we've had from the 1st round over the past 6 years since Luck and its been disappointing as a whole, and before that.  Maybe even the 2nd round too but I haven't thought about it that much.

    Yeah I am not trying to say it’s all Grigson’s fault either.  However, rather than revisiting each of those picks it’s just easier to say the Grigson misses because he was the GM who made the picks.  Nothing more nothing less.  


    Id agree if you look at their first round picks since Luck outside of Kelly, Nelson, and, depending on how you feel about Hooker the others have killed them.  That’s not exactly breaking news.  It’s a large part of why Grigson got fired.  I am not saying it’s all Grigson’s fault either.  I get your point it doesn’t matter if Irsay, Grigson, Polian, or Ballard took them those misses are hurting.  


    My only objection is that I do think Kelly and Nelson have had an impact.  It just comes at a position, in-tearer offensive line, that isn’t sexy.  So people don’t think of them as impact positions because they can be great but if someone else doesn’t do their job their effort goes for not.  It’s not like a WR who can make a spectacular catch on his own.

    Hooker is playing fine.   

    Maybe it’s Willis that’s out of position then and he covering for it but dating back to the Texans game there have been issues with him taking what looks like bad angles and not helping over the top which has lead to more big plays.  Since he normally plays that position I assume it’s him but it could be the rookie safety too.

    No, you're not agreeing.  You're passively arguing. 


    If you want to still get stuck on GMs, the way I see it is that its the nonimpactful investment of capital from both GMs we've had since AC was drafted.


    Polian doesn't count because nearly all of his last players would be retired by now.  That's how long its been.

    Who are you to tell me what I am doing?  I am not arguing,  you keep talking about the last four picks.  That would be Kelly (Grigson pick), Hooker, Nelson, and the trade.  Then you talk about how the problem goes back beyond that and I am AGREEING with you that it does.  Those were Grigson’s picks and like I keep saying those misses are still being felt.  That’s where those extra guys would have come from.

    Last spring we had no 1st rounder.  Its hard to have an impact from a first round player when you don't have a first round player.


    If you're saying that it was a good decision for the future, that's another thing.


    I'm saying the reason we are 6 and 7 today, is because we have not gotten much impact from the capital you're supposed to get impact from.

    The point I was making the point that the guy who would have probably been the first round pick has had no impact this season so I think the Colts did the right thing in not taking him.  I think Rock has had more of an impact than Sweat has this year.  


    Like i just said i agree the misses of the Grigson era are still being felt.

    All good players make an impact.  Its a matter of which positions make more impact than others.  This isn't news.  In fact, its common knowledge.


    Besides, I was talking about not getting much impact from our last 4 first round picks, only two of them were olinemen. 


    And if you want to go back further, I would say that we haven't gotten much from the first rounders besides Luck, and AC before that.  We have to go back so far to find anybody that whomever we would have drafted would probably have retired by now.  


    Its the first round impact, or the lack of it.  For years.  That's why we suck.  Luck made up for it.  We won't have Luck again, IMO.


    I agree that the draft misses of Grigson are still being felt.  The only one I’ve been overly disappointed in the last four years is Hooker but that may just be a me thing.  This year they pretty much didn’t have one.  Sweat who would have probably been the pick hasn’t done much this season unless I am missing something.  Rock has been about what you would expect for a rookie corner.  He’s had struggles but he’s been coming along.

    I am not so sure he doesn't love JB and tries to build around him. I have no idea what he is thinking or what Irsay wants. Irsay wants Luck back would be my guess haha if he had his choice. I do too.

    Irsay has hinted at that.  While I would love Luck back I wouldn’t bet on it and I hope the team isn’t.
