hey.. they're getting every SCRUB in the table.. they're getting the fishes just the smaller one that fit in their pockets...

ha, they are scrubs in your eyes because you don't know who they were at first, neither if the O-linemen we signed were scrubs, and Greg Toler is certainly no scrub, in fact all three of those guys will have good years here next year just wait, the only questionable one really is Erik Welden, but just look at Tim Jennings, let them play before insulting them smh...

I'm not criticizing mind you. I just think this is going a LOT different than we expected. Doesn't help when Jim tweets teasers and gets all of us worked up

When Jim teased us back in the fall we got Vontae Davis. By the weekend I think we bring in some really good talent.

Can anyone please show me where the Colts "lost" Vasquez? I know there were writers spreading rumors that the Colts were looking at him, and a million threads here, but can anyone provide a quote from JI, Grigs or Pags?

No joke, not to mention Vasquez went to Denver of all places, if you are a line man & you have John Elway whooing you about protecting and making a SB run with 18, not really hard to see why hes a Bronco now...

^^ Exactly! Every one just assumes we "lost" him .... why does no one consider the possibility we got who we wanted, and Vasquez was not our first choice?  Just because the majority of the board anointed Vasquez as the best option for us at guard does not mean the Colts had him rated as such.

I don't think we're done for sure. DL, WR, I doubt QB. We can pick up a backup if they want one for cheap or grab late in the draft or UDFA.

Colts had no chance with Vasquez once John Elway gave his agent a call.  The man wanted to play for a Super Bowl, that they are the biggest most obvious contenders that where in the market for a guard.  

 

He could have easily gotten more money then he did.  He gave them a "I want to play for a SB" discount.  

 

That's what happened.  And while we are good and I think we are improving. . . we are still pretty far behind Denver.

We could have gotten Vasquez if we wanted him.

 

We are behind Denver ... but they have to win now, because they only have about a 2 year window before they are no longer contenders and shopping for a QB. Which will be just about the time we are back to being one of the dominant contenders.

I don't think so, the guy took way too big of a discount to say that we could have gotten him without way overspending for him.  Vasquez could have gotten 7 or 8 million easily.  He took 5.8 million.  

 

Denver isn't going to be shopping for a QB as much as you might think.  The year they signed Peyton they also drafted Brock Osweiler in the 2nd round.  He's Peyton's backup now and is likely their QB of the future.  It's hard to gauge how good he really is though because he's only thrown 4 passes in garbage time.  On those passes he was 2 - 4 for 12 yards.  

 

But that having been said, I agree that they are only major contenders while Peyton is still there.  But they do have his replacement in the wings.

I agree with Valpo.  I think Vasquez chose Denver to play for the best team.  I definitely think he could have gotten more money.  Plus take into account that he signed a 4 year contract and, if I'm not mistaken, there are 4 years remaining on Peyton's contract.  Could be coincidence...or not.

Yeah, Denver is in serious win now mode. They honestly don't have much of a future at QB after Peyton.

The Colts on the other hand are playing with house money. I love it.

Peyton Manning agreed to a five-year contract worth a reported $96 million with the Denver Broncos on Tuesday.

 

 

 

 

Now don't get me wrong, I know that contracts can be changed, restructured, voided with correct terms, etc etc...just saying the actual contract was for 5 years. :)

    • You don't spare resources for a QB IMO. If you love a player and think he can be your franchise QB, you trade up to get him. I don't know if Ballard loves any of the QBs, I don't know if he's watching them even right now, but yeah... this is my position - we have some good picks in excess of our own to use to trade up. Go get the QB you love. 
    • I'm not a proponent that Hooker is an elite all around FS.  His eliteness is simply one dimensional, which isn't enough to warrant a huge capital investment, IMO.   But in his defense, it seemed to me the scheme being played did not have him always covering the deep ball.  The first TD looks like it may have been a whiff, it happens, but the other times it looked like there was no intention to give the CB over the top FS help.  Which is a scheme problem. (so why would you not have your elite deep ball guy not in position to defend the deep ball?)   If Hooker was truly out of position on those deep throws, it was really, really, bad play because he was not even in the picture and in no position to contest the long completion.
    • 129 yards passing, of that 52 went to WR’s. for an NFL QB-1. But Jacoby has the most secure job in this league. Jacoby has what you would call an all day Hall Pass.  The Colts will probably draft  in the mid to late second round because of value and CB likes them picks, but his coaching staff don’t.. Until the Colts makes a change at QB-1. This team will be good enough to miss the play offs year after year. This loss wasn’t on the refs, coaching, or poor WR play. This was on Jacoby. Last night shows how badly this team misses Andrew Luck
    • He's probably referring to that pass early in the game that JB threw about 5 left of Ebron over the middle.
    • Blame Eberflus, not Hooker.  On those long completions, the safeties were positioned in mid-level zone coverage and had no responsibility for covering deep.  Re-watch the game and see how they were deployed before making silly comments like Hooker was confused (Aikman) and he let receivers blow by him (commenters here).
