    Not sure what Reich’s plan is for him. He is not a deep threat and doesn’t have great ball skills so don’t expect him to be another TY. He was mostly used on screens. More than 50% of his receptions were within 2 yards of the line of scrimmage and he only had 2 receptions 20+ yards down the field according to PFF.

    Reich’s offense is built on screens and other passes that gets the ball out of Luck’s hands fast and letting play makers make plays.  Seems like a fit for the Colts offense.

    If they're considering using him at LB I'm assuming it would be at Sam on early/run downs but they'll kick him out to DE on passing downs. 

    I think he’s going to be their “Van Noy” type player who plays all over the field.

    Ballard didn’t just use a 2nd round pick on a corner.   He used his FIRST of three 2nd picks on a corner, his FIRST OVERALL pick in the draft on a corner.

    Doesn’t seem like a very Ballard-like thing to have done.  Not in a draft that was so loaded with DL.  


    A little head head scratching for me.


    To be clear, I’m NOT second guessing Ballard.  I like our first three picks.  I’m just curious as to his thinking.

    Most of the big dlinemen were gone by the time the Colts picked.  It sounded like Ballard DQed Sweat because of the heart condition and I dont think they were that in love with Tillary.  Where they were picking the best players left in the board were corners.  They got one of the top three in the draft and frankly I think corner was bigger need than DT but that’s just my opinion.

    Would love to see more picks for the OL and DL, but really BPA at this point other than QB.

    With Jacoby being a free agent after this season you argue for taking a QB even.  Maybe not in round three but it could happen before the draft is over.

    I don't exactly agree. You'd have to know what Ballard's definition of premium position is in the context of that comment. He may have simply meant he wouldn't use a 1st Rd pick on a CB.  Polian and dungy made similar comments but still drafted corners in the 2nd



    That's simply not true but it likely is an issue of semantics. Much like I explained above, you'd have to know Ballard's definition of premium in that context. Every team that has ever run the Tampa 2 has said the same thing... CB isn't a premium position in that style of defense. That does not by any means mean they're not important. 


    Premium corners are the elite press man corners that you have to either draft in the 1st round or spend big bucks on in FA.  This defense doesn't require those press man skills. Good zone corners can be had for less than it would cost to get a comparably talented press man corner. 

    Heck Dungy and Polian even took a corner in the first, Marlin Jackson.  If it’s the best player on your board and he fits a need you take him.  You have to trust all the work that went into making your board and go with it.

    Could be but after taking two last year and having Mack I am not sure how big of a need RB really is.  


    Regardless I think the Colts just got BPA from here on out.  I’d like to see them add a safety and olineman or two but not really worried about when.  


    They really hit all their major needs in the second round.


    i wouldn’t be shocked to see them add QB at some point to be groomed to take over the backup job if Jacoby moves on after this year.

  7. Best pass rusher left on the board.  The Colts now have two young pass rushers to learn from Houston for two years.  Hopefully they develop and if they do the Colts could have a nasty pass rush like they did with Freeney, Mathis, and Brock.  I don’t know if these three will be THAT good but if they are in the ball park the Colts are set.

    Class goes both ways. Reggie is classy and was just joking around but I guess it is ok for our division rivals to call Andrew Luck an overrated bust or an average QB? Didn't Jalen Ramsey do that last year? So did a lot of other fanbases LOL. I loved what Reggie did. IT WAS ALL IN FUN.

    There is a difference in having fun and just being foolishly wrong.  With that said I didn’t care what Ramsey said.  It was just noise.

    Titans about to pull a Chris Ballard:

    "Oh, the rivalry is DEFINITELY back ON!"


    Colts fans:


    "Ok, win a game."

    The Pats could say the samething to us.




    Tonight is part of why Reggie is my all time favoirte Colt.  He loves the Shoe and doesn’t hide it and he’s got a great personality.

  10. He’s saying you can’t truly judge a players worth until they have been in the league for four years and just because a draft value chart says a pick is worth X doesn’t mean that player is going to equal that value either in a good way or bad way.  


    It’s pretty much saying a chart is a tool to value but it’s not an end all be all in terms of judging trades for picks.  If you do a good job setting your board and drafting and you get two good players rather than one then it was a good trade.  Now clearly if you get two bad guys with those picks and the guy taken with the pick you passed on turns out great then it’s a bad trade.
