I'm not so sure that the Colts have taken a step back, but I know this: the AFC is going to be a dogfight. So many great young quarterbacks, followed by so many good young quarterbacks, followed by so many potentially good young quarterbacks. Only Houston seems to be a consistent dumpster fire you can pencil in as a W in the conference...my gods, even the Jets are loaded with top picks the next few years(not that it's ever helped them before).
From top to bottom, the Conference may be stronger than any point since the 70s.
I think this is a complete mischaracterization of BB. No plan? You don’t think trying someone at a different position constitutes a plan? You think the front office woke up one day and said, let’s move BB?
You think after that didn’t work out, Ballard THEN decided he needed to have a plan? Never occurred to him before that moment?
How many conclusions can you leap to?
You can have a plan, and sometimes it just doesn’t work out. That's life...
