  1. 1. Are they a Top 10 Team in the NFL



Recommended Posts

who had more td's last year?

You do need someone with a little "uumph" to force the ball into the end zone from in close, but that's what Carter is for. And Adaii has had success at that in the past, and there is every reason to believe that Evans would be at least as good at that as James is. No, Brown isn't going to help you too much in that area - but he is probably the fastest running back on the team. The field is 100 yards long, not 5. On 3rd and 10 from outside the 20 yard line, which one would you prefer to be taking a delayed hand-off, or stepping into the flat as a safety valve. In that scenario James gives you the same three yards he does running up the middle. Maybe six, I'll be kind. Brown can get you the first-down and a whole lot more. You can't teach speed.

The only downside in that scenario has been his difficulty pass blocking, but it certainly looks like he is improving. Certainly trying.

And what do you think James ypc was smart one lol

James would have had a higher YPC last year than he did because he was sent in in Goalline situations. It just sucked for him you can't rack up more yards once you cross the goal line...I do feel Brown needs to be given one more chance this year behind our big line however.

Enh James gave us mixed results last year. Frankly he was good on the goalline but didn't really blow me away when he played on other parts of the field of course none of the backs blew me away last year. I do think James has a nose for the goalline though.

I doubt james would have gotten more yards, if the starters didnt then i would highly doubt he would have made a difference.

Evans'/Spann's potential is waaaay higher than James'. I'd hate to give up on that potential for a below average RB with good special teams skills.

But, if (when) we do cut Evans and/or Spann I hope we can stash whoever is cut on PS.

Agreed. We need to keep Evans for his RUNNING BACK potential, and cut James for his lack there of, especially with the kickoffs coming from the 35, and so many touchbacks. Besides, Gilreath has proven to be just as goon on kick returns. Also, did anyone else notice that Evans was a beast on kick coverage? He was always the first to the returner and if he himself couldn't make the tackle, he would try to block the guy into another Colt? Darren Evans is a 2 for 1 package that this team can't afford to lose.

    • I don't accept your description that its trolling.  Trolling is intentionally saying something simply to stir the pot...to muck up the works.   If this got to a national level.... to a general football loving base, sports loving base, or general population, you don't know that the responses would be limited to just Colts fans.  You may have thousands of people who would see the Jeff hire as simply a rich white billionaire hiring is buddy over more qualified candidates.....maybe even minorities.....and would sign the petition to voice their concerns over such .    Which would be a concern to them beyond caring how many Ws and Ls Jeff might cause.     If Jeff is hired, there will be questions from general football fans, sports fans, or the population asking "What does this hire say about the NFL?"   I'd wager that the possibility of Irsay "hiring his buddy over other candidates" already has grated on enough people to contribute to their existing opinion about whether or not Jeff should be hired.    And this is the type of emotion the media morphs into and taps into.  Effectively, the media trolls the population trying to get them all triggered up.   Besides.  Petitions by their nature are one sided.  10,000 signatures may sound like a lot, but it may be less than the 11,000 votes that would support Jeff for HC if an actual poll was the medium used for fan expression.  Or less than the 150,000 opinions who are comfortable leaving it up to the owner to hire the HC he wants for the reasons he wants.  These opinions would never be known, because if you are comfortable leaving it up to the owner, you are the type of person who is not going to sign a petition in the first place.  Petitions are a form of activism, and most people aren't activists.  And most activists could care less if their opinion is in the minority, they just want their opinion to prevail.
    • If Ballard believed in Br that much he would have drafted him in R2at 53.  He was considered by some to be 1st R talent.  BR slid from where he was projected.  He was there and CB took him, but this certainly wasn’t the strategy .  We will wait until a projected 1st or 2nd rounder whom I really like slips to 77.    
    • I don’t watch ball but I’m curious why you think he’s gonna bust?  He produced pretty good for perennial cellar dwelling SEC team with a brutal schedule just looking at it in oveRview ,  especially his junior year.
    • I have this feeling about Richardson becoming a stud in the NFL, not backed up by any data, he just feels like someone who can compete in this age
