Players Who Never Panned Out..

Exactly...I really thought he was going to be the answer. Recently I think we were all excited about Trent but he just hasn't worked out the way we expected....SO FAR....he has time to turn it around though. Really injuries are the big reasons....mine would have been Anthony Gonzalez....perfect slot receiver coming out of OSU.....just thought he would have exploded into a star with Peyton.

Jerry Hughes never paned out with us. I thought he made strides last year, but still a disappointment considering he was a first rounder. Then the guy goes to buffalo and gets 10 sacks.

Yep thats what happens when you get plenty of playing time, ya learn and grow and get better and...Hughes was not given that chance until last year

To the guy above that said Marlin Jackson: 

Marlin Jackson made one of the biggest interceptions in Colts history, sealing the Colts AFC Championship game win against the Patriots.  He could have never played a down after that and would still have never been a Bust just for that 1 key play,

Trent Richardson.... I know we didn't really draft him, but then we re-drafted him as our number one pick in the 2014 draft.

All he does is fumble in the playoffs

So did Brown. Let's cut him while we're at it.

Here we go again. He had 3 years to show 'enough'. Funny how the guys we pay to run our club didn't think he was good enough either....

huh?

 

 

Former first round pick out of BYU (I believe), but never lived up to first round pick potential

Correct, 21isSuperman -- Morris was terrible for about 4 years before he started being a decent player -- I always felt like we should have cut him after his 2nd year but Polian kept him around b/c he was too proud to admit that we got a bust with our first round pick that had expectations to be the next star middle linebacker in the NFL

I always thought he did make an impact

What he said.  Morris was a decent player, but nowhere near the first round pick MLB we expected.

Can I count Fredd Young, We wasted two picks on him

 

But the first pick the Colts made in Indianapolis was Leonard Coleman. 

 

What a way to start a draft with in a new city. Contract dispute, Setting out the 1984 season to play in the USFL

 

B Irsay had something to do with this

    • Taking NE and Brady out of this because I think what they did was unique.   My observation is that the teams with the elite QB have more success BEFORE that QB gets paid his contract than after he gets paid.   SB teams have won, IMO, because they have gotten elite play from some players at the same time not compensating those players for the elite play.  They produce more than what the team pays them that season.   SEA was better when Russell Wilson was playing near elite QB before his contract. PITT was better when Ben was younger not being paid. I know injuries played a part, but the early Grigson Luck years were much better for the Colts than the $125M years. KC rode an elite Mahomes on a rookie contract to domination over recent seasons. BUFF is enjoying Allen's low pay day relative to his talent and play.  What will happen to them when he gets paid?   (and another version of that formula, even though Denver paid PM, they got a huge boost from an elite Von Miller playing an impactful position on a cheap rookie contract)   We made our bed when we picked a G at 6, and will pay him elite Olineman money.  I don't see where we are going to be putting the ball in our QBs hands every play and ask him to win the game when we are paying a G to also run block at an elite level.  We will probably always be more of a running team than the average playoff team because of our investment in our G.  Taking the ball out of our QBs hands means that we will not also be able to afford that top guy.   Maybe we should have taken Fields and hoped he gave us elite play on the cheap before we'd have to decide between him and Nelson.   
    • I know what a strange baseball season so far. The Cubs have a good team overall, we are like all the other good teams in the NL basically. We have our ups and downs but that is baseball with a 162 game season. The only team in the NL right now that can say they have played great are the Giants at 45-25. Looking at all the good teams in the NL, they are all 8 games above .500 with the exception of the Dodgers who are 42-27. Cubs are 39-31, Padres 40-32, and Mets 35-27. So the other teams fans feel our misery when a loss happens as well. We really need to just start playing more consistent. It needs to start tomorrow with the Marlins who we are much better than.   If someone told me before the season started that we would be in 1st place in the NL Central through 70 games on June 19th, I would take it. That is the extreme positive way to look at this.
    • Who wouldve guessed that the only win for NL Central tonight would be the Pirates beating the Indians 
    • Brewers just lost to the Rockies again , we are still in 1st place in the NL Central. Cards lost as well and the Reds are down 5-2 to the Padres.
    • It was that comebacker. That seemed to effect his play after. Hopefully he's alright and returns back to before
