    Goodell has fined and suspended the Patriots more than any other team in the league since he took over being the commish. 


    And tried to brush spygate under the rug.  He did stand up to him over deflate gate.  I hope he does the same here.  This is the third time clearly the message hasn’t gotten home.  It’s time to drop a hammer in my opinion.  Yes he’s punished the Pats more than any other commish but the real issue is that he’s had too.  He’s not just picking on them.  He’s also been questionable at times like his handling of the first spy gate.  I hope that doesn’t happen here.

    Good for them!


    It's always something with the Pat's.

    Brazen and arrogant.

    I know it would never happen but this is the third time they have been caught openly cheating id give them a version of the death penalty.  

    strip the titles, make the team disband sit out a year and start from scratch like an expansion team and kick BB out of the league,


    again that will never happen.

    Agree... they don't deserve the benefit of the doubt.


    But I gotta ask....have things gotten so bad, and desperate that they need to steal signals to beat the Bengals?  :scratch:

    Heard a guy on McAfee’s show this morning that helped break the story that pointed out this is a bunch of first time coaches and that they would use this stuff to build a library on them basically.

    I don't know that a QB anywhere near Luck's caliber will be available next year (unless Luck comes out of retirement).  I imagine we'll be sticking with Jacoby and giving him another year with hopefully more weapons (weather it means our current guys get healthy or he drafts/signs another WR or two).

    I highly doubt they are going to get a QB of Luck’s caliber.  However, I do think they draft one at some point this year.  If that guy or Jacoby doesn’t pan out it will ultimately lead to Ballard getting fired in my opinion.

    We could be 11-2 if our kicking game didn't lose at least 5 games for us this year.... I think Luck is a better QB than Brissett, but I think Brissett has kept us in every game he has played, and has given us a good chance at winning all but 1 game.  Vinatieri is the GOAT in terms of kickers, maybe he was hurt all year, or maybe he should've hung up the cleats... but he lost us several games this year.  The new guy missed one yesterday and we lost by 3.  



    I don't think he's getting fired after next year.  He inherited a very poor team and we have gotten much better with almost a complete roster overhaul.



    I don't think Luck 'screwed the team over.'  He obviously had a worse injury than the media was reporting.  He's already had a lacerated kidney, nearly had a shoulder injury end his career, and who knows what other kinds of injuries.


    As I stated above, Brissett has played well enough to give us a shot to win all but 1 game.  He can't control our kickers missing FGs and extra-points.  He's had a good season overall.  He rarely turns the ball over and he is doing well, especially considering TY's been out, Parris Campbell has missed significant time, Funchess has missed basically the whole season, Ebron is now out (and had a lot of drops), etc. etc...  if you look at it, our #1 WR right now is a 2nd year guy who was undrafted (Pascal).  

    I am not saying he will get fired next year.  I am saying If he picks the QB wrong (which he will probably do this off-season) it’s going to lead to him ultimately getting fired.  I’d be shocked if that was next year.

    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.

  7. 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.

    I wish we could pull a Boston Celtics/Larry Bird move & draft Justin Fields this upcoming draft & then get him the next year.  That kid is making grown man throws.  While we're at it draft David Bell from Purdue for two years from now...

    If they were going to do that you take Trevor Lawrence.

    Cox isn't in cook's level.    They weren't paying ebron, doyle and cook.   Use your brain

    Trolls don’t use brains they just want to spark a reaction.

    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.

  15. 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.
