So, we get a NEW GM & Coach.... all of a sudden people start putting in more Work in the off-season? I see what's going on here lol

How do you know they are doing more work in the off-season than they have done in the past? This twitter post just said what AC was doing this off-season we have no way of knowing what he did in other years.  Well we do somewhat.

 

Two years ago he couldn't do much with the team because of the lockout but he talked about how he did work out with the team during the lockout.

 

Last year he had off-season surgery so there was only so much he could do. 

 

So I am not sure it's a case of a new GM and new Coach having people do more I think it's a case of this is the first off-season Costanzo was healthy and could legally do stuff in the off-season with the Colts.

I don't care what Pat take a swim has to say. At 6'7 315 he was already huge. He needs to listen to what coach Chuck has said from day 1 "Always beat your man" Some may say he had a good season, but no he didn't. That's why he is trying to make himself better.

If you watched the games you KNOW Castonzo didn`t have a good season in pass defense.

Guys got around him all the time, one of 3 players to give up double digit sacks(11) last season.

Luck was scrambling around pass rushers from the left side of the line Constantly.

He was slower off the snap than his rookie year. It was pitiful at times how quick & easy they burnt him!

Hopefully his ankle (which may never be 100% healthy again) allows him to have a Great off-season.

Oui je suis d'accord Anthony Costanzo a le potentiel pour être un bloqueur de gauche franchise. Construire le monstre, allez Colts.

Go Colts!!!!!!!!!!

Mais il s'est déjà avéré être un talent solide, vous n'êtes pas d'accord ?

 

God I love on line translating.

Wow..you both made me remember a part of a song I learned in French class in 4th and 5th grade...and the teacher was an une madame formidable She was nice but very scary..lol

Its been forever since I had French in 4th and 5th grade...maybe around '72...ughh..

 

I think it went something like this..

 

Sur le pont d’Avignon

L'on y danse, l'on y danse

Sur le pont d’Avignon

L'on y danse tous en rond

 

I hope the spelling and punctuation are correct..

 

Back on Topic...Glad to see our team working had in the off-season...makes me miss football even more than I do right now..I can't wait til it starts again..

I thought his strength wasnt ever much of an issue. I always thought the big area for improvement was feet quickness and agility to handle speed rushers.

 

Does anyone who maybe watched him more closely this past season know more on this?

He got bull rushed right into Luck's ear hole quite often. Most young offensive linemen have to get stronger...so nothing out of the ordinary

    • I view him as mediocre.  Might not be fair to him but that's my take.  You can win with mediocre if you have a talented roster but there's a cap on your ceiling.   Good chance that Ballard knows this and will make a change if things don't go the way he wants in the playoffs.
    • If you look at how the trend is heading nowadays it seems like GM has become a complementary role to the Head Coach.  Where they basically work hand in hand with the coach or maybe even for them in scouting the class and shaping their board.  But I think the old model, the classic GM at the top ensuring you have that year to year consistency (and maybe even setting the course on what type of team he wants) has its advantages.   Ballard's a good GM.  Having that in place is really important for your long term health of the franchise.  So I think from that perspective the franchise is immediately better off than half to two-thirds of the rest of the league.   I think what he's missing is the right coach.  He needs someone more current, more creative.  Not necessarily the trendy offensive mind but a head coach who is young and gives you a tactical advantage on one side of the ball and has a chance to grow into the total package.  There's some good options out there, lot of young coordinators filtering in to the league now, but Ballard can also look at college.   Bottom line is I think we're in good hands at the top.  The roster is strong.  Lot of positives just find the right guy to tie it all together.
    • Not often but it can happen.  Bears D are the reason they won in 85
    • Rodgers has several years left  Rivers will probably be here 1 more tops
    • I wonder whose expectations are the reference on this.  Make a colored chart, put it up on twitter, and, well, it's true right?   Then I realize I'm getting old and shouldn't look at anything that is termed social media.
