    Best Colts moment:  I flew Coach Dungy, Bill Polian, Bob Sanders, Adam Vinatieri, Hunter Smith, Justin Snow, and Gary Brackett on a KC135 from Indy to San Antonio to receive Air Force Employer of the Year Award.  Got to talk football with all of them, it was pretty awesome.

  1. This is a pretty good article that addresses rookie TE. https://www.espn.com/blog/nflnation/post/_/id/280521/history-says-rookie-tight-ends-struggle-to-make-immediate-impact
  2. I think someone else needs to take over play calling. How does Taylor only get 10 carries, in a game where you are having success running the ball, are way behind in time of possession, and have an injured QB with limited mobility. Also, we need to shuffle the WR depth chart, nobody besides Pittman seems to be getting open. During training camp we thought we had depth for days. I am ready to see someone prove they belong.
  3. This isn't Madden. These GM's are real people with long term friendships and associations with each other. If Ballard were to try to game the compensation of a trade he already made, it would damage the Colt's reputation among the league. That would be worse than the loss of the 1st round draft pick. The Colt's and Ballard are men of their word, they will honor the trade they made for Carson Wentz. We can criticize it after the fact, it's what we do.
  4. The problem with the pass protection is Ryan Kelly is playing more hurt than we knew and whatever side Davenport is on. Wentz is the exact QB we needed these first two weeks, any other QB would have been murdered by now. Hopefully he recovers fast from his ankle(s) we need him if we are going to get back into the mix.
  5. Man, Edge looks like he could lace em up and still go.
  6. I will say this, the QB competition is making this one of the funner training camps in recent history. There is a reason to like both QB's, and with the Ballard way of developing from within, I believe we keep and develop both going forward. I am hopeful for both to improve, but if we can get Eason to make his reads a little faster, I think he has the higher ceiling with the ability to make every throw on the field. Conversely, there is no reason to think that Ehlinger can't do some strength work, and work with a QB coach in the offseason to make those throws outside of the numbers a little sharper.
  7. Over the next couple of weeks, we need to find a better answer at LT, and our backup OL in general needs to raise their level of play. We are loaded at WR, DL, and LB it seems. Perhaps instead of cutting some of them we can put a package together for a better LT.
  8. I thought both QB's did well. The situation is as the media has framed it, Eason has the NFL arm, and when protected looks like a solid QB. Ehlinger has the mobility to extend plays, but his arm strength causes him problems when needing to thread the needle in an NFL type small separation. Overall, I give a slight edge to Eason, but these are two QB's worthy of developing and keeping in house.
  9. Yeah, i definitely agree Eason is no Mahomes. I also agree that the coaching staff really like Ehlinger, but his performance today proves why they are still trying to develop Eason's skillset. It is quite possible by the end of camp they like neither guy and we go with someone we don't even know yet. I also disagree with the one full year thing, for all practical purposes this is the first year they have been able to see Eason at work. So far it has been up and down. I just hope Wentz comes back sooner than later, I am not comfortable with either Eason or Ehlinger.
  10. I don't see this at all. I believe Reich was being very forthcoming, Sam earned the right to be tested against our #1 defense, and in all honesty he wilted under the challenge. I expect Eason to regain the majority of the starter snaps going forward.
  11. I probably will have an unfavorable take on all this, but this is what I believe: 1) Costanzo was JAG until we drafted elite players around him, once we got Nelson, the entire unit ascended. 2) Losing out to Little and Cosmi early in the second round was a surprise, and they had to go to their value board at that point. 3) No way in hell do we move Nelson to LT 4) Whoever we do decide to plug in at LT will play his best football on this elite line group.
  12. We need to trade up and get Kwity Paye, didn't think he would drop this far.
