  1. Umm.....Bears gave up their first round pick, a 5th rounder and 2022 1st and 4th to select Fields. That’s not “darn cheap.” We traded for Wentz and can’t undo the trade anyway, but trading would leave us with Wentz and Fields. Is that what you want? If we unload Wentz, is Fields a sure fire upgrade? We couldn’t trade next year’s 1st (as it’s in play to complete Wentz trade), we’d have given up this year’s 1st and 2nd, plus a lot more due to no first rounder to trade in 2022. So once again, we would not have addressed the pass rush issue at the very least for an opportunity for a Rookie QB
  2. Duron Carter and Da’Rick Rogers come to mind as over-hyped Receivers on the Colts - but hey, if Benedict Garçon can make an NFL roster for many years even bring from a small school, why not our 7th Rounder?
  3. Rivers had a nice season, but if he returned, i’d been happy but a voice in my head would be saying “he’s painfully immobile, and that will be our eventual downfall.” Without Rivers, it’s likely a veteran QB or trading up for Rookie. The Rookie option required a ton of draft picks (meaning not drafting Edge pass rushers) for a “shot in the dark” Rookie QB. With Wentz, we know he has shown high level of play and we hope he can get his mojo back. It seems to be a good gamble; if he falters, we’ll be out a 1st (or 2nd) Round pick and we go from there. If he succeeds, we’re out a 1st and we d
  4. SI gave Colts a “B.” The point is no one really knows but it gives “experts” something to write about and fans something to argue.
  5. Our greatest weakness was lack of pass rush and we’ll need it given the QBs we face in regular season and in playoffs. Mission accomplished; we filled a huge need. This team can compete and go as far as injuries and Wentz will allow - we can compete with and beat anyone. Every team has questions: ours are Wentz and LT. If they pan out (and the Tevi vs Costanso comparison was shocking to me), we’re going to be very good.
  6. Well Tevi is obviously our LT; I wonder if he was going into Thursday night?
  7. I only know what they said, but when Eichenberg was selected, they said he was a RT as his foot speed was too slow for LT (blind side). He was evidently not the answer for Colts at LT.
  8. I’d guess two more gone before we pick; so look at your LT list and see if three are acceptable. If so, no problem.
  9. They say Eichenberg is too slow footed for LT; he may not have been in play for us
  10. Evidently many people wanted a throwback two way player who could start LT on Offense and Edge on D. Well, those players are extinct. What we have is a Day 1 starter at a position of great need; we face seemingly endless top flight QBs and pass rush was poor last year, and we lost Autrey to free agency. We are lucky Paye was sitting there for us to draft. Regarding LT, we are not going out there playing 10 against 11. Braden Smith was not a 1st Rounder and actually drafted as a Guard but is now our RT. We will have quality options in Round 2 for LT. We would not have had quality options
  11. Sure, but if they did, they’d have no Edge as the pick would have been traded.
  12. Colts were not drafting Phillips. Glad he was selected.
  13. I’m not a fan of picking up Clowney - he’s an injury waiting to happen, and what good is that when the playoffs start?
