You shouldn't have posted that. You know some forum members are still upset about Walden being here :lol:

I wouldn't expect a LB to be able to cover Dwayne Allen in the first place let alone a 3-4 OLB, just Walden being in position to force Allen to make a outstanding catch is ok with me

why won't nfl network show any other team than the saints??

Since Peyton left, there not real sure there's a team in Indy anymore. Besides we need more Hernandez and Tebow coverage. You can't see Hernandez being led out of his house in handcuffs enough times!

@ryandaryk: Montori Hughes lining up opposite of Redding on the line.

@ryandaryk: Montori is looking impressive. He's sticking next to Redding at all times off the field. #colts #coltscamp

@andrewmishler: Werner is playing some first-team. Left side with his hands in the dirt with Mathis on the right standing up. Redding, RJF in the middle.

@andrewmishler: Red zone drills. Perfect back shoulder pass by Luck, and an even better catch by Coby Fleeener for a TD.

@andrewmishler: Vontae Davis had some great pass breakups earlier covering Wayne 1-on-1.

@gmbremer: Darius Butler intercepts Luck for the first time. #ColtsCamp

@andrewmishler: These are all passing drills right now, but Havili is still mixing in with the 1s. Sheppard and Conner are rotating as starters.

Vontae has his hands full covering one of the best to ever do it. But sounds like he's responding well

I wonder how well Griff Whalen is doing.

@andrewmishler: LaVon Brazill and Griff Whalen running as the second-team receivers. .

@andrewmishler: Noteworthy catch by Griff Whalen. One-handed 40-yarder in the end zone. Crowd loved it.

All I can find for Whalen

Lotta quick routes, interested in hearing about deep balls.

@andrewmishler: There's the first deep pass from Luck to DHB over the middle, but Toler breaks it up. Looked like he held him from my angle.

I'll give Toler a pass on that. DHB runs a 4.3 that's dangerous

@TribStarTJames: Plays of the practice so far: CB Cassius Vaughn interception return for a TD off Matt Hasselbeck pass; great diving sideline catch by Wayne.

@TribStarTJames: Other plays of the afternoon, TD catch by Hilton on great throw by Luck; Fleener back shoulder TD catch from Luck; Allen back shoulder catch

@TribStarTJames: RB Ahmad Bradshaw made an appearance at the afternoon practice. Watching from the sidelines. No boot on his surgically-repaired foot.

Before somebody like Brad Wells blows this up, it is thought to be just a blister.

@TribStarTJames: Allen, by the way, left practice and had some treatment in the trainers tent. The injury didnt look to be serious. Thought to be a blister.

@andrewmishler: Werner has exclusively played on the left side so far. Mathis moves to the right when he does. Mathis plays on left, Walden right otherwise.

The left side is the rush LB side right? If so, I was right about my prediction/what Id do for Werner

It's good they're letting him put his hand in the dirt. Give him what he's use to.

@andrewmishler: And just as I hit send, Luck drops his best pass of the day into Wayne's hands. Deep fade route between two defenders.

Another nice grab for Whalen:

@andrewmishler: Offense really slowed down over the last 20 minutes until Whalen made a tough catch over the middle for about 30 yards. He's looked great.

    • I wouldn't consider #10 a diss..... but I have a bit of an issue with the Cowpies ranked #2 at the same time.   We not only shut them out last season, we out manned, out-muscled and intimidated them in a way that none of us have seen a Colts team do to any team in a long, long time.   You could say "well its only one game".... and that's true.   But that was a statement game, and I just don't see how Brandt can justify a #2 ranking for Dallas given each team's additions this off-season....not to mention all those other teams he has them ranked ahead of.   As for the Colts...on our own merits.... I would have us closer to the middle of the pack on this list, around 7th and certainly ahead of Dallas.
    • His mom sounds awesome.  
    • Sigh...........   This is beyond really frustrating.    You're accusing me of things I literally haven't done.     That's very Irish of you.    Really annoying.      You ask for benefit of the doubt while never giving it out yourself.   I've put certain things into bold.   I'll try taking them one at a time.   Your first bold...   that this is not me saying that teams that aren't doing this are stupid.    I'm sorry, but when you declare that you've come up that you think is clearly and obvously better,  that you think you've re-invented the wheel and sliced bread,  it certainly feels like you're casting a disapporving eye toward any team that's not doing things your preferred way as a matter of course.   Then you claim,  that I want Ballard in the building ASAP,  but not before January.    Let me see if you understand this word.....   NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!   Was that clear enough for you?       If Irsay had decided in the spring of 16 to fire Grigson and hire Ballard in the spring, I would've been ok with it.   It's not desirable,  but if Irsay made that call THEN,  I'd be ok with it.     Where YOU mis-read me,  is that roughly 95 of owners make this decision during the season.    They see things they don't like and they decide during the season to make a change -- typically when the season ends.    Sometimes, an exec will be fired during the season and someone like Dorsey comes in during the season to oversee things and learn about the organization.    I'm fine with that.  There's no record of me opposing that.   I start with January,  because that's when the business season starts for front office and coaches.   Period.   The NFL views it as preferrable.    But making the switch in the spring is doable, as I've said in every post, and which you have ignored or confused badly.    But if Ballard had been hired in the spring of 16,  I'd have been fine with it.   This isn't the first time I've said some version of this.    This is not some ah-ha moment.   As to the bold declaring that there are tons of qualified guys and that CHOOSING the best guy is another story.   Here's my reponse to that.   No.   nonsense.     They are the same story.    They are connected.    Because you play down the fact that most GM's and most HC's fail.   They get fired before their 4 or 5 year contracts expire.   The owner has seen enough and makes a change.   Saying there are always qualified guys is meaningless.    Because FINDING the best guy who will succeed, isn't just important,  it's EVERYTHING.   All 32 teams can announce they hired a qualified guy.    That isn't hard.    But the vast majority of teams are introducing his successor in a few years.    That's why a franchise like Pittsburgh has very little turnover either in HC or the front office.   While franchises like the Jets or Buffalo or Miami are introducing someone new so often, you can practically set your watch to it.     Generally speaking,  the new GM has a long history of scouting and evaluating talent.   The new HC has a history of success, both as a position coach and a coordinator.   They can easily be called qualified,  (though new guys like Kliff Kingsbury and Zack Taylor do NOT have a long track record of success)  But the vast majority of hires...   are soon enough fired.   That doesn't speak well to their qualifications.      As to you meaning what you're saying...   Of course you mean what you say and I stated that clearly.  I don't know why this should rub you the wrong way.  I literally wrote that I know you mean what you say.    I said what I said as a rhetorical point,  not an attacking point.    My ultimate point was made at the end of my first post to you.   You typically write persuasive arguments.    You're able to frequently made me see your viewpoint.    But not here.    You accuse me of not considering your argument.    I'm sorry,  I am considering what you write.   But I don't see the typical high quality Superman argument.   I don't see points that connect.    Your argument feels like the one you'd make for doable.   It doesn't convince me at all that it's preferable.  
    • Yeah, Ballard said he's a patient guy, and he doesn't mind waiting to pick. We almost traded back from 34 as well if Rock wasn't there. I personally love the "trade back" strategy at the end of round 1, and wouldn't mind doing it in most every draft. A late 1st for a mid-second and early/mid second (from the Redskins) over two drafts is fine with me!
    • Haven't done research on the 2020 draft yet, but if it ends up having an elite WR or OT, I wouldn't mind trading up this year. We'll have to see where we finish (hopefully 32 ), and make a decision from there. Ballard landing the Redskins 2nd rounder may be a brilliant move.
