Cruz makes sense from Irsay's twitter posts, but not as an actual member of the Colts. I would rather keep the 1st rd. pick and see what we can get. Cruz IMO is an above average receiver, but that's about it. He's average sized with average speed, I don't see the appeal, especially for our 1st rder..

*cough* Marvin Harrison *cough*

Marvin's ability to catch the ball is uncanny though. There is a reason Marvin was taken in the 1st round of the draft and Cruz was undrafted. Not that Cruz is a bad player, but he doesnt have the talent Marvin did in his prime.

Cruz is a game changer and would immediately impact our offense. He can play in the slot or outside. That said, I don’t know if any of these rumors have any validity. I do know he will cost a lot of money whether it is coming from the Colts, Giants, or any other team’s checkbook.

 

I can understand why a fan would not want the Colts to spend the money, but I can also understand why the Colts should. I believe Cruz would be a huge asset to the Colts offense. Giant’s fans do not want to lose him, because they know how talented he is.

 

We dont need another slot WR. We have Hilton! This would be a mistake in my opinion giving up a 1st rounder when that could be used on a pass rusher to replace Mathis or a big WR like Keenan Allen round 1.

Draft position means nothing. See Arians Foster as opposed to Cadillac Williams for example.

He's never been a #1 WR though. And his size limits him to be one at only 5-11 200 pounds or so.

Um #2 WR *cough* and WRs move around all the time. Why would you want the smallest guy taking the biggest hits at slot?

I get it, but what Marvin lacked in size he made up with insane ability.

Cruz doesn't.

Route running.. Cruz's route running is good, not Marvin good, and I'm not sure there is ANYONE in the league with Marvin's route running ability, but you don't have a 1500 yard season without decent ability. Besides, as long as Reggie is here he will hold that #1 until he's gone.

Regardless all of this is speculation anyways...

    • No need to lock.  I didn't mean that. I didn't know that there were people that didn't know this story.   Baltimore fans were heart broken but, these days, everything has worked out for the best.   Thankfully   Although there is still disagreement on who has rights to the franchise history before the move.  But, even that is fading   Time heals
    • When Frank has had a good quarterback, he wins and makes the playoffs.   The two years he didn’t make the playoffs were the two Luck years where things went to heck at the last minute.   And one of those two years we looked like a playoff team until JB got hurt.  From there, things went downhill.   This year, we never lost two games in a row.  When we lost a game, we won the next week.  A very good sign of a well coached team.   We had one bad loss, week one in a season where Covid wiped out the entire off-season and all pre-season games.   Ballard speaks glowingly of Frank.   He knows how hard it is to find a good coach.   I’m not sure why you think we’re not a well coach team, but for some strange reason you do. 
    • So you don’t really agree with most?
    • Whether I've heard of them or not is irrelevant. What's relevant is that our coaches can lead our team to a SB win. You can bash me because of my lack of knowledge all you want. The real question is, do you trust Ballard to hire coaches over 31 other teams? Do you trust Frank Reich's word that these guys are good? You are being positive and trustworthy just for the sake of it too. I don't trust anyone for us until they prove they can do their job at the highest level, in the NFL and on the Indianapolis Colts.
    • Joe Tiller coached future HOFer Drew Brees at Purdue.  He's the father of "basketball on grass."  One of the most brilliant offensive coaches of his generation with an outstanding coaching tree.    I say this with no disrespect, but the fact that you haven't heard of someone is pretty meaningless.    Your responses regarding the listing of several coaching legends, together with your reactions toward the several up-and-coming NFL coaches that have been named in this thread, has established you're pretty much only familiar with a few household names that virtually every casual NFL fan is familiar with.   If that was the criterion by which all coaching decisions and hires were made, no coach would ever move up the ranks and have the chance to become successful.    Sirianni was pretty much a nobody before the Colts hired him.  He's still only 39 years old.  Now he's the HC of the Eagles.  Eberflus had never coordinated a defense before he got to Indy.  I'm guessing you had no idea who Gannon was until he was hired away.    In sum, there's no reason to be overly negative about things just for the sake of being overly negative.  It may be more rewarding to expand your horizons and learn more about the game and how many great coaches permeate every level of it.  Some coaches that you perceive as "bad" because of their tenure with a certain team go on to do great things in a different environment.  Same can be said for coaches that you've never heard of (which is seemingly a pretty big list).  That's the nature of the business.
