What's Worse Than 1-13

I really don't understand why people think this team is so far off?? You can see in most games this year that if we didn't have some inept play at QB, we could win. I would fully expect that if Manning is back next year, we are a playoff team. Wayne, Collie, and Garcon didn't suddenly lose the ability to catch and run. The defense has always been shakey.

What's worse than 1-13? How about people who question every move that the owners, managers and coaches make? You don't honestly believe the Colts can win 10+ games every season indefinitely, do you? Manning is a football god (lower-case G); we all know this. But it will take another pig in a poke to get someone as amazing as Mr. Manning. Is Andrew Luck the answer? I don't think so. He's a great NCAA player, but this is the NFL. The transition isn't always smooth. We also need offensive and defensive linemen, strong players backing up the lines, and a stronger special teams.

So, you asked what's worse than 1-13? I can go on and on...but you get my point. How about we just continue cheering rabidly, celebrating loudly, and losing gracefully? We had our run--we'll have one again soon. Ask Detroit fans how they would have felt a couple of years ago to be 1-13 at any point in their season.

Sorry, can't be dont.

Apparently, it's not as entertaining. :)

and what started as a fun joke thread at the start of the season is now dead...

    • Edge Austin Booker (Kansas) – Was the most productive pass-rushers this season earning an 83.6 pass-rush grade.  25 total pressures and 6 sacks with a 16.6% pass-rush win rate.  Had him with a Round 2 grade for a while now.   OL Cooper Beebe (Kansas State) – Jack of all trades OL No matter where Cooper Beebe lines up, he produces elite play. At right tackle in 2020, he was a PFF honorable mention All-Big 12 honoree. As a left tackle in 2021, he was named first-team All-Big 12. In 2022 at left guard, Beebe was a second-team All-American.  Beebe's 94.0 pass-blocking grade over the past two seasons led all offensive linemen in college football. During that span, he didn’t allow a sack on 770 pass-blocking snaps.  Beebe is the only FBS guard who ranks in the top five in both PB (4th) and RB (2nd).  He still hasn’t allowed a sack since the 2020 season. 2023 earned college football midseason all-America First Team.  After 9 weeks leads all offensive guards with an overall 83.9 PFF grade who is top 3 in both pass-blocking (3rd) and run-blocking (2nd).  Beebe hasn’t allowed a sack since 2020.  To me got that borderline Round 1-2 grade.   Beebe might sneak late into Round 1 much like Cole Strange (Patriots) in 2022. 
    • I think you’re a little off on saying grades in the 60’s are for backups.   Without even looking I can say with confidence that all 32 teams have starters with grades in the 60’s.      In other words, it’s not the 90’s are an A, the 80’s are a B, the 70’s are a C and the 60’s a D.   PFF grades don’t work that way at all.   If you’ll notice, any player with grades in the 60’s have a light green color.  The 70’s have a darker green color.   Green is a starter level grade.   Honestly, I’ve seen some players who start have grades in the 50’s.   It happens.   You just don’t want it too often.     Hope that clarifies.   If you have questions I’m always here.    
    • Adebawore is fast.  Still wonder if he may be better suited to drop 25 pounds and move to linebacker (SLB).  Really not a big shocker to see defensive lineman struggle within years 1-2 before they do well but not often the case. 
    • Yeah Franklin Pff grade is 60.9 and EJ Speed is 65. Which 60-69 is considered a grade you would expect from a backup.  Now I don’t always agree with their grades, it does reflect how I have seen them play, they are good backups but we need starters. 
    • Off the top of my head, the Bears gave up two 3’s and a 4.   Might’ve been one 3, and two 4’s.   The points are the difference at the top of the draft when a team is moving up from 3 to 2.     As for everything else, we’ll just agree to disagree.
