somehow......

I can see why people make the AFC south argument against us......... We have been outright terrible so far this season and we are somehow on top of the AFC south with a CLOSE win against the Titans?.... comon man.....

Hopefully this win puts the guys in the right frame of mind and we can move forward but damn man, we shouldnt be top of the AFC south...

That's OK. Because this team needed ANY kind of win at this point. We got it, so there's something to build on. I loved the heart of this team in crunch time. They had 2 chances to put us away and didn't. Was it pretty? NO. But we did it. Imagine how the Titans fans feel.

Not only that, if we win the next two games, two weeks from now at 3-0 in the division, we could essentially have as much as a 3 game lead in the division when you factor in division play and head-to-head. The Titans play Buffalo and Miami, Houston plays Atlanta, and the Jags are the Jags.

    • RBs are devalued these days. APBs if elite, can have better value than a RB2. Hines could be elite if use the right way IMO. If we're going to let a guy like Mack, who we drafted, walk and test things.... I think we'd let Hines do the same. And given that our new RB1 was very good at catching, the need for Hines isn't as big, so the leverage shifts a bit.   I love Hines, and hope we resign him. If Taylor stays healthy at RB1, and Campbell finally stays healthy at slot, I can see Ballard telling him to test the market. Hope he blows up, but that may mean he asks for too much lol.    And I don't care what Reich says. Our RBs are not interchangeable, and Hines isn't a RB1 type of guy. He's best used as an APB.
    • Yup. I would have loved to resign Houston, but reduced his snap counts. That's basically what they tried to do with Kerrigan last year, it just didn't help. I think it would absolutely help Houston.   I read this (below) article from Mock on Stampede Blue last night. It draws from Hicks and another guys. I thought it was pretty lazy lol. https://www.stampedeblue.com/2021/5/5/22420698/claims-the-indianapolis-colts-are-worse-than-a-season-ago-premature-overstated   It left out intangibles. It brought up that sacks were higher vs poorer teams, but that's the case for every DE or 3T. It also said both Autry and Houston benefited from Buckner's presence. IMO, there's only so much to eat, and adding Buckner means there's less to eat. It also didn't address the fact that we are the 2nd least blitzing team in the league, which doesn't help in the pressure category. And didn't mention that Buckner had arguably his best year ever despite having his lowest snap count ever. Might that have something to do with the DEs? lol.  Also ignores the fact Houston was still top 10 in pass rush win rate, which I believe is vid analytics driven instead of subjective eye grading. 
    • That's why I think it was a wasted pick. Weak arm, poor pocket presence. If they just wanted competition, there  are FAs available on the cheap. Heck, I'd take Hoyer who took 1M last year. He'll likely end up signing somewhere for the vet min, and wouldn't have costed a draft pick. Just a prediction. Has happened every year, and will happen again every year lol. Just part of the entertainment. I like Dayo a lot, just not this year coming off an injury with other needs.   On Granson. He's a Burton clone that doesn't block as well. Just envision Burton, or a big-slot WR. Doubt we ask him to block much.    On SE. If he makes the 53, that means Eason was a bust and total waste of a pick. Due to his lack of traits, I'd be very surprised if he made the 53.  Love Paye. Really like the long term value of Dayo but less than enthused about the pick for 2021 production given other needs and injury. Doubt Granson will have a big impact this year either. Could be wrong.    The Fries pick was OK. Low risk, low expectation. IMO, will need time to develop on the PS. Flex guy, but pretty meh physical traits. 
    • After watching the last episode of "With the next pick" I think Hines will be resigned, because he isn't a running back, he is a weapon, and a unique one. I think he'll have a nice long career as a Colt. Don't know what the future holds for Mack, but I defo can't wait to see him on the field again
