We need to go after Ik Enemkpali ASAP


Recommended Posts

NFL players are no more likely to be felons than any other American, actually far less so. So quit spewing more nonsense.

Have you done a background check on our players? You might be surprised? If teams would draft Winston at #1 .... anything goes.

Isn't it time for you to do your daily colts hate on bleacher report? He posts bad about us there so you all know.

Check out the comment section and he's done it on other ones, this is the only one I could find. Sure he hates on the Colts at Indystar and stampedeblue as well.

How is posting the truth hating? Do you live a sheltered life? What would you say if AP was your father?

We're talking about a grown man that threw away an opportunity to earn over a million dollars to provide for himself and his loved ones, with the potential to earn much more....over a paltry debt. He won't learn from this, that brand of dumb is in his nature. A cheetah doesn't change his spots, as they say. 

 

His NFL career is likely over now, and I don't feel the least bit sorry for him.

Not every locker room has a guy breaking the franchise qbs jaw over 600$

 

I am not so sure about that. We have #1 picks that would steal your laptop, guys accused and or convicted of rape, guys in and out of rehab, guys that beat their wives and children, guys involved in nightclub shootings (and I am talking some big names here) so I would say anything goes.

 He will be reinstated next week after he breaks Goodell's jaw..

Okay. So your okay with the Colts being a laughing stock like the Jets? Make sense....

 

i think you missed the sarcasm. If you are a sheep and accept everything as given and never question things you will be led to slaughter every time. It is not ok to do things that are in bad character, racist, immoral or just plain wrong and I don't care how stupid you are, where you come from or what your background is. It is up to the teams and the NFL to clean that up and not sweep it under the rug. There is no victory at the expense of morality. So if we are going to win Super Bowls at any cost count me out!

If by posting the truth you mean posting utter nonsense that you never back up with any facts or stats, then, yes, you post the truth.

You're a conjecture machine and you believe your own garbage.

I don't know about that. Just check the other posts. I belive someone else just posted that the Colts have the 3rd most arrests. But I guess that's just con ... jecture?

Swing and a miss.

That's irrelevant. Statistically one team in the NFL will have the most arrests and another will have the least and then the rest will be in between. That doesn't mean that NFL players are mostly felons or more likely to be felons than any other group.

Maybe go back and read the links I provided (it's ok, I know you won't. You prefer willful blindness).

That's deep!

I point you to facts and you ignore them or spin them your way ... what can I say. I will be at the game in Philly to see facts first hand not what is highlight spun by the media ant the network coverage. If you are there maybe I can buy you a beer? Cheers!

Yeah, you finally brought a fact (maybe, you didn't have a reference) but, as I explained, that fact is irrelevant to your point.

How in the world does where the Colts are ranked in arrests among NFL teams have any bearing on how felonious NFL players are compared to the rest of the country? Simple, it doesn't.

So when I said bring some facts to the table, I thought it went without saying that I meant relevant facts. Facts that show NFL players are more likely to be criminals than the average American (of the same age range).

Not to change the subject of this post but Geno is expected to miss 6-10 weeks with a broken jaw.  How tough is/was Manning, he got his jaw broken in a game and missed one freakin' snap.  Played the next 10 weeks with his jaw wired shut and able to only drink his meals.  Someone should tell Geno to man up.

who are these guys on the Colts current roster???

 

& why so freely use the wording "WE" when referring to a team that you so clearly believe to be full of felonious behaviors???

by all means, PLEASE do!!!

 

BTW: i remember it as two snaps. could be wrong. '99 wasn't it?

It was only one offensive snap because the backup QB (Rypien if I remember correctly) came in and fumbled the ball on the first snap so the D came out on the field.  if it wasn't for that fumble he probably would have missed at least a series.  And I think it was in 2001, a game or to after Edge injured his knee against the Chiefs.

We .... as in NFL we! But I somehow think you knew that :thmup:  

Ha, awesome, and for as many felons in the NFL teams are full of players doing awesome things in their respective communities, aiding youth programs, children's hospitals, charitable drives during the holidays, etc.

But somehow I think you knew that  :thmup:

 

So again I ask who are the felons currently on the Colts roster???

Bills have claimed LB IK Enemkpali

— NFL Access (@NFL_Access)

August 12, 2015

Well, there goes any chance the Colts had of becoming a dynasty.  Guys like, um, Enemkpali only come along once in a lifetime. Maybe more often. Darn you, Rex! Why did you do this to Colts nation? Oh well, I'll wait patiently until the next "The Colts should sign" thread, and hope the signing happens...

Good point. All we have to do is weed out the felons and questionable characters and there would be nothing to discuss on these boards but happy days. Hard to make villains out of role models though. Kind of puts a damper on the WWF model the NFL has going on now? I mean a villain has to have grills and questionable character ... doesn't he?

    • Would be a good deal for the Pats, not the most unbelievable trade either.
    • You ask a lot of good questions.    Unfortunately, I don't think that I, or anyone else,  has a lot of good answers.   Here's what I think we know.   Over The Cap has the Colts with just over $26 Mill.   Spotrac shows less,  and after the Carrie signing, I think we're going to be at $22.4 or so.   I also think we'd like to find a way to thread the financial needle and sign both Houston and Ertz (as a FA).   Even if you allowed $12 Mil for that, (Houston $7 mill and Ertz $5m)  that would leave us with roughly 10-$12 mill, give or take.   Currently, with our 6 picks,  Spotrac shows that will take roughly $6.5 to sign them.   But we all know Ballard has never had a draft class with less than 8 picks,  so expect two more, and that will bring the money needed to sign them to roughly $8 Mill.   Suddenly, we'd be down to $2-4 Mill and change.   Now, this is the part, where I don't know if @w87r  will step in for more financial adjustments that will show that we will have a few more $ than my math shows.    He's a wiz that way!      But typically, teams want 5-10% in reserve for in-season transactions.   BUT....   can you afford to have that much in reserve when your cap has shrunk to $185?     Yes?    No?    I don't know?     Who knows?   So....    lots of questions that need answers....    and we just don't know?    Both Houston and Ertz look like situations that might not resolve themselves until May......    So, we're left hanging....  
    • I vaguely remembered something like this but misremembered that I saw it on Hard Knocks so figured it couldn't haven't been the Colts.   Now that you mention this though, I think you're right.
    • OK....    I thought what I was saying was pretty obvious, but perhaps not,  so I'll try again....   If Chris Ballard wants to blow up and destroy everything he's spent the last 4 years building, I can't think of anything that would do it better than what you suggest.   I'm NOT saying CB should give Q and Darius blank contracts and say "fill in with the numbers you want"....   but CB will re-sign them and they will be big and generous contracts done without a lot of public fighting (unless someone gets WAY out of line with what they're asking.   But I'm not expecting that.)   Ballard has built a franchise built on culture.   We talk about here.   The team talks about it non-stop.    It's buzzing all over the city of Indianapolis.   It's even now buzzing around the NFL.    To suddenly play hardball with your best players, or worse,  trade them because they don't play the right position,  would literally destroy what he's built.   Blow-up the locker room.  Undercut  the relationships Frank Reich has with his players.   The rest of the team would see how we treated Q and Darius and think....   "why should I play hard for this franchise?   F*** them!   I'll ask to be traded the first chance I get."   In case you haven't noticed,  players demanding to be traded has caught on in the NFL.   It's not just for basketball or baseball anymore.   Ballard would lose all credibility with everyone.   He'd have wasted his 4 years here.   Reich would be screwed.   The front office would be furious.   Irsay would likely want to fire him.   It would destroy this franchise.   Final thought....    since you love to throw around what Belichick does....    deal with this...   when the Patriots were winning Super Bowls and making deep playoff runs year after year...     do you know who some of the top players were, besides Brady?     Logan Mankins,  offensive guard.   Rob Gronkowski,  Tight End.    Vince Wilfork,  Nose Tackle.  Donte Hightower, Inside linebacker.    Four key players.    All paid very well.    All Belichick favorites.    None, with the possible exception of Gronk played a sexy, glamour position that you obsess about.       I expect to agree with NONE of this.    But as someone who covered the NFL for 30 years as a member of the media,  and has followed football as close as I could for 25 more years (55 in all)  this is my judgement what would happen if Ballard would do what you suggest.     Sorry.    Good luck.....  
    • There are a few national writers who have speculated that Justin Houston will sign elsewhere either during or just after the draft. A fair question if that happens is: what are the Colts’ remaining options?  1. Sign someone like Melvin Ingram or Ryan Kerrigan. Not very good options, but I’d take Ingram.  2. Draft at least one DE early. This is the best and most obvious option, but after the second round, the pickings are going to be slim. So it will have to be a Day 1 or early Day 2 pick.  3. Roll with what you’ve got. Ugly option to even think about.  Conclusion: At this point, the Colts’ pass rush is seriously hurting if Houston isn’t resigned. Ballard of course knows this. Here’s hoping there’s a breakthrough in negotiations pre-draft, because signing Houston gives the team flexibility in the draft.  If the Colts allow Houston to sign elsewhere, given that this is a weak DE draft class, the Colts are putting themselves in a position where they HAVE to get a top DE early. And that could have them reaching Day 1 to make sure they do. To avoid that, give Houston a sweetener in the offer and get him signed!
