  1. I like Campbell's potential as well as any Colt fan, but there comes a time when you have to move on, I'm not suggestion now but if this is season ending, then that's 3 in 3 years. At what point do you say " we are moving on"
  2. well hopefully if we take the lower end say 7 weeks(since the season opener is 5 weeks away) then he would only miss the first 2 home games, and frankly I think our D will be up to the task. I think Eason will surprise some folks, plus he doesn't have to carry the Colts. Seattle doesn't have that nasty D it once had and LA Rams well I am a Stafford fan but like last year in Detroit he can be harassed by our D. I think Indy will be up to the challenge.
  3. it wasn't that long ago under Grigson, he was spending and bringing in Free agents. We remember how that turned out, probably cost us a another future HOF QB, I guess we will never know. Ballard is actually building a team. I still find it funny that some fans wonder why he is keeping so much CAP, well it not rocket science on who we are going to have to pay soon. No my opinion is Ballard is doing it the right way and we may have even have gotten a QB out of this.
  4. Well lets hope if they are if needed to fill in they will at least put up some sort of resistance when a DE is on his way to the QB. I can't imagine them being worse, hopefully we won't have to find out
  5. I like what Chris Ballard is doing, you have to remember last year, no camp he had to go with those depth tackles we had. when AC went down they showed their true colors on how bad they were. CB will not make that mistake again. Can you imagine , knowing the competitor he is watching those turnstile LT. My opinion he takes a LT with 21 and has him for 5 years on the cheap so to speak. these other signings are just for better depth......JMO
  6. Good Luck to AC. See that's how you're supposed to do it. If you have thoughts of retiring do it right after your season ends. don't wait say until the last preseason game and the draft has gone by where trades may have been made to HELP your team and not put them in a bind.
  7. I was wondering why I haven't heard much from him this year or for that matter last year. I looked at his stats this year and he has only played 7 games, not sure how many he was a healthy scratch or not but he did play 16 last year. what I did find amazing was in 23 games he has played in he has a total of 17 tackles. 2.5 sacks and 1 FF. I know Ballard spoke really high of him when he was drafted but he seems like he is getting less and less in rotation and his stats seem to be really on the low side. Does anyone think this one of the Ballards rare misses in the draft, he is playing out of position or could it be like Jerry Hughes where it took him longer to develop, or are we just spoiled by Chris Ballard's drafting ability and finding players who contribute right away.
  8. Can't figure raiders out, they beat the chiefs once, played them tough twice but was in danger of losing to Jets. I think we get the Raiders that played the chiefs(they also know a playoff seeding may be on the line) Colts 28 Raiders 24. I thinks they have a problem with the speed of our defense
  9. I agree, there is no LT's out there and they don't fall off trees. that being said, my onion is ever since LT mentioned last year about retiring I think Ballard has probably instructed his scouts to make number one priority is to find that one the draft. I believe it's time to be grooming his replacement since he only has 1 yr left on contract. unfortunately his replacement cannot be found on this roster no matter how much you play the shell game with current O lineman.
  10. that's 2 special teams awards in 2 weeks https://www.colts.com/news/rodrigo-blankenship-afc-special-teams-player-of-the-week-11-green-bay-packers
  11. I have been a colts fan forever and have lived through pretty crappy coaches and GM's. I can say without a doubt the Ballard/Reich regime has the Colts pointing in the right direction. Compared to the last(which i blame for the beginning of the end of AL). Ballard is a finder of talent that no one else sees and Reich and staff can coach these guys up to be successful not just fitting a square peg in round hole. Case in point 2013 draft, Bjorn Werner taken by RG at 24, behind him were the likes of DeAndre Hopkins, Leveone Bell, Travis Kelce, Zack Ertz, Travis Fredick, Cordelle Patterson and Xavier Rhodes(which is funny we have him now). I know there is no crystal ball but all I have mentioned did pretty well in college except for Werner. My point is the roster is stacked with young contributors and that D is now a Monster. Can't wait to see when they turn their attention to the O side.
  12. They have been all been great contributor's, and yes I hope Eason turns out to be the man
  13. so I'm surprised Pinter never got a shot there. didn't he play some RT at Ball State?
  14. Sorry if this has been answered, I did not see it. I ask because I wanted to see how he's done. I couldn't find his stats in any box scores, I've been excited with all the talk this week but again I see nothing on him. Was he a late game scratch?
  15. Looks like the game is going to most of the country, the Colts should make a good showing https://506sports.com/nfl.php?yr=2020&wk=11
  16. I think they are 12th in the league What is the Green Bay Packers defense ranked? The Packers ranked first in scoring offense (38.0), second in total offense (445.5) and 12th in total defense.Oct 12, 2020
  17. Pittman's doing a great job as a rookie, he does seem to have a lot of space around him when catching the ball. I think that is indicative of good route running. Hopefully he trends upward as the season progresses.
  18. I think the Colts win this. Aaron Rodgers is deceptively quick when dropping back to pass, but I think the speed of our D line surprises most teams that play us. I heard about Tanehill and his rollouts, Jackson and his quickness and the Colts D for the most part held them in check. If they have a good game against Rodgers I say Colts 35 Packers 31 . Packers D is little higher than average as far as stats go so far.
  19. Mark my words, if he is out for an extended period, this could be huge! KM is one of the unsung heroes of our D, he is always around the ball making plays. I am hoping with 10 days between games, he'll be fine
  20. I see where the NFL is considering it based on how many teams have games canceled due to COVID. While I think the idea could work I would hate to see product watered down, but I get why they are doing it. They did the same thing based on the strike shortened season. Sorry if this has been discussed, didn't see the topic. Thoughts? https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/nfl-may-consider-a-16-team-playoff-if-regular-season-games-are-lost-due-to-covid-19-per-report/
  21. I love all 3 of out TE's. each bring a little something different. Doyle running good routes and keeping chains moving, MAC can go up and get those 50/50 balls and Burton does a little of everything, plus you better watch out, he can throw(Philly Special). I am glad they are a little different in their skill sets but the most important this is they rarely drop passes when they are open.
  22. What I did notice was when Leonard was out for the 2 games due to injury the defense got off to a slow start. They did pick up the intensity in the 2nd half of both games, but that shows that Leonard brings the IT factor when he is available to start. We forget he is only in his 3rd year and also given the responsibility to get everyone set as far as responsibilities go, can't wait to see him by year 5 if he keeps growing at this rate. On a side note I think NO 53 is my next jersey, he should be a Colt for a very long time.;
  23. doesn't surprise me no one outside Indy knows how good the Colts can be
  24. No it's because we have no receivers that can find the open spot
