I disagree ... What was alarming to me was the worse JB got, the team also got worse. What i mean by that is JB lost the team. Therefore, those wins you speak of are long gone with JB. This team needs swagger or confidence if you will to win consistently. That was lost last year. Maybe Rivers can instill confidence back to the team, i don't know, but JB or Hoyer will not. They both have to go and should of been gone by now. I have my doubts the Colts can win the SB regardless what they do this off season.
He’s also said enough about all the positions that it seems like he can go anyway. He also praised the WR class and has talked about how they always want to add an explosive element to the offense. He’s also always talking about the trenches. He’s said they look at QBs every year too.
Ballard says a lot but doesn’t often reveal his hand. No one saw him drafting Rock Ya-Sin or Malik Hooker.
Colts were picking at about 25 last year and traded back into the early 2nd from there. Simmons went 19 overall I believe so we would have had to trade up to get him. If Ballard truly loved him that much he would have moved up 7 spots to get him.
And I'm just going off of what I've watched from him since I can easily watch Titans games. Yes he is super strong and stout. But when it comes to quickness and speed for a DT, he doesn't have what Kinlaw or Brown does. I saw a highlight of Brown out in coverage for a play and he made the tackle. I've never seen Simmons have that kind of speed for a big guy.
I still believe Big Q will get the better of Simmons on most occasions in our yearly battles with the Titans.
