Collins Looked Good

Well Colts fans, our newest QB looked pretty damm good to me. For only being with the team two weeks, he looked calm in the pocket, thew some real bombers, and was ready to go. I think we have found our temporary back up. By far better than Painter, IMO. Now if we can get the Oline to protect better, the Colts are unstoppable! Kudos to what i like to call " the colts bowling balls" Evans and Carter". I really like what im seeing here!! Did everyone see Evans run over i think it was the LB? Put his shoulder down and took him 5 yards. That was what I love to see!!! :coltshelmet:

On another note, Pistol is showing some improvement, but his vet has me angry. I realize its frustrating for both of us, but i think its my right as his owner to know his status on a daily bases. I love that colt so much its like having your own child in the hospital. The vet is fed up with me wanting to know everyday how he is. But, when you love a critter that much, anyone would want to know. Keep the prayers coming his way.

Frankly I am glad we signed Collins but I hope he turns out to be the biggest waste of money we spent this year because that means 18 probably plays every game.

Couldn't agree more. But I won't be too upset if we get 1/16th of the value for him if he starts one game or even 1/8th if it's two games. That gives the O-Line more time to gel as a unit. And Peyton more time to heal.

As far as Collins, he still has the arm, no doubt about that. He also has the experience. I never realized that he had such a long windup. The way the line looked last night, he's going to have to get rid of that ball a half second sooner.

He can still zip it in there!

I've never been a Collins fan, dating from years of hearing the NY media fawn over a very average drunk (excuse me, exceptional drunk, average QB) because he led the Giants to the SB. He CAN be an effective passer, but he needs an above average amount of time in the pocket. The Colts can't provide that just yet - although I'm optimistic. So while I agree that his calmness is reassuring compared to Painter, Peyton had better be ready.

Pistol has been my pc backround this week. Hope he continues to improve. The vet sounds like a jerk. I've spent 10s of thousands on them unfortunately and even the one's I disliked considered it routine procedure to provide a daily update. The sicker the animal, the more frequent the updates. Unfortunately many skilled doctors are jerks. It helps to remember the "you catch more flies with honey" saying at times like this.

Glad that Pistol is showing improvement and I think as you paying the Vet Bill you have every right to get a daily update. He is your furbaby and I have one as well (not a horse but a schnauzer) and if she was going through this I would be just as concerned as you are.

Prayers still coming your way from one colts fan to another. ;) ;)

There's a lot of film on this guy too. Coaches teach their defense to go for the ball because it's going to be hanging out there. Still, I think his experience makes him a better backup than Painter.

I couldn't agree more. I had a gallbladder surgeon that was the best, but had terrible bed side manners. I get frustrated pretty easy on things of this nature, but luckly i think the vet realized that and was nice enough to call and let us know his status. I know they are doing all they can. Im just a concerned momma.. matter fact, im about as bad as this colts mother. She is a worry wart. Took him to a halter futurity, the colt went all of about 20 yards away and she liked to have had a come apart. Didn't help he was whinning at her like we were skinning him alive. lol, he did get second place though and won some good money. ;)

Pistol thanks you for all the prayers.

    • First off.. Thanks Superman for writing this up on Young   I would be very happy with either Young or Stroud as our pick     In regards to Richardson   If teams trade up and both Young and Stroud are gone (I think its a small chance)   But.... If that happens, I would consider taking Richardson over Levis   at 4   I really dont want to give up 2 firsts and 2 2nds and a player for a move up to 1            
    • Yes.  I could be negative and see only how every Qb we take could bust...and with the questions each has any one of them could be a bust, but I look at this pretty optimistically.  We need a QB, and I think this draft presents a lot of possibilities and choices that could work out for the best.  Trade up for the elite guy and he works out.  Stand Pat for the second best guy and he works out.  Trade back and pick up a traitsy player who needs a year to develop in a year where we have no chance of going to the SB anyway.   There are about 5 or 6 QBs that could all work for us depending upon if the investment is correct.      As a fan, I can't see me criticizing any of the picks or moves Ballard makes this draft when it comes to QBs.  But, as a fan, I reserve the right to later say...."He should have known better" if it doesn't work out.  He's getting paid to know better.
    • This definitely makes sense. People seem fixated on Chicago taking Anderson or Carter. Poles has said his main objective has and will be to help Fields by surrounding him with talent. That starts up front. Even if they trade down in the top 4, I feel they will trade down again to stock picks. Anderson and Carter are nice players but I don't see Poles taking a risk on one player. He is more of the obtain more picks and increase chances of upgrading talent guy.
    • 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.
