Colts @ Texans Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Hello to all Colts fans back here in the Colts Fan Forum! A battle of greatly improved teams as our 9-4 Colts finally play the AFC South leading and 11-2 Houston Texans. A win by the Colts with the leadership of Head Coach Bruce Arians, and rookie QB Andrew Luck will both make the Colts be game behind the Texans in the division standings, and also reach the threshold of a 10-win season for the first time since 2010. NO injuries to both teams, continue to stay both Colts Strong and Chuck Strong, and GO COLTS!!!

    • This is my favorite mock I've done.  Realistic?  No.  But if we got even close to this draft, I think most fans would be happy.
    • After the guy had barely returned from the concussion, yeah reckless and stupid. I know it’s way too early for some people to criticize a new coach but this team needs a healthy qb to play upwards of 20 games each year. Do you think running qb sweeps in the middle of the field is likely to further that outcome? Recent history says otherwise.  
    • IMO - the team needs an absolute offensive game-changer at 1-15.  Is Bowers that?  If so, Ballard needs to go get him.  No more “value pick” trading back.  It’s blue chip time.  JMO, of course.
    • I am not saying you are wrong, it is after all just your opinion/philosophy on how you view team building.   My outlook on it is to draft ( first 3-4 rounds) the skill, big $$ contract players ( WR, CB, Edge, QB, LT) generally. There are exceptions early in every draft, like this year, Bowers (TE), Kinchens (S), Edgerrin Cooper(LB),Sweat (DT), if they, or similar, are available when the Colts turn comes each round. Having 4-5 year rookie contracts, if they become major contributors, builds a year over year solid, Cap manageable team. Lower rounds would be looking for depth, and high potential picks for current players high contract expirations or retirement in the not too distant future.    FA can be ideal for that absolute need position as a starter for the right deal, and player, like Gilmore signing was. It also is a method to fill the LB, Safety, RB, DL/OL quality back-ups, TE positions. It depends on the current team status if you splurge on 1-2 skill guys, or 3-5,$6-$10 mil guys.    JMO, know others have different thoughts, that's cool with me, just want to see a winning team. 
    • Know it’s only a mock, but I hope the draft doesn’t play like this because we’d be out on both bowers and Arnold.  I still think we should go for WR if it’s Brian Thomas.  If it’s anyone else, I’m for trading back unless any of the pass rushers left are bonafide difference makers (which idk).   if we want bowers or Arnold, we’ll probably have to trade up, which we probably won’t do, so my bet is we trade back.   i will say, 2 of these picks could go either way, the cardinals and titans.  Both could use receivers but also OL.  If one or both of them go OL, we could get bowers or Arnold.
