In perspective

I'd be lying to you if i said all of our problems were fixed but we are taking a step in the right direction. As you know offense has never really been our problem. Even with the glaring holes in our o line last year we managed to make due. And in my opinion we have gotten better by adding youth to our O line. I do believe we should have kept CJ over Diem but at this point Diem is servicable until one of the rookies or other offensive lineman take his spot. Now going to the defensive side of the ball. Our starting LB core would've been Brackett, Connor and Angerer but with the addition of Sims this mixes up a little competition for the two OLB positions. In my opinion Sims will prob take Angerers. With the new addition of Jamal Anderson that gives us some versatility on the line. He's virtually the same player as Raheem Brock. Not saying hes our savior because he isnt but he should get a chance to spell mathis/freeney and also come in on 3rd downs as a DT. And who knows u never know he might crack the starting lineup. Now at corner im not to sure...Powers needs to stay healthy for a full season. Tryon played better than I anticipated, not sure if he or Lacey will get the other starting corner job. In all honesty i would prefer Trryon over Lacey. At Safety im fine with Bethea and Bullit. There are still some worthy FA'S left. I dont anticipate a big signing due to cap n cash but maybe one more small signing if anything IE. another low risk high reward guy :colts:

I agree, most of my concerns are with the defense. I would like to see some depth at corner and safety. LB should be fine with the addition of Sims and D-line should be ok with the addition of Anderson. I don't see any strong backups behind Bethea and Bullit and other than Powers, I'm not totally sold on any of our corners as starters. Tryon played very well, but I'm not 100% sold on him yet

Yeah, I'm really hoping he returns to his old form. Things will be interesting to watch at camp this year.

For the record, if Jerraud Powers stays healthy, what does everyone think of him? I seem to think he can be pretty special when healthy. Just my 2 cents......

If you ask me, he has the potential to be one of the best corners in the league. He is an excellent player and if he can stay healthy, Pro Bowl is not out of the question. I could see him being one of the top corners in the NFL.

I agree Jerraud Powers is one of the most exciting players on the Colts Defense I hope he stays healthy as the defense really seems to play better when hes on the field

    • Shhh, the more he is "overlooked" the better off Downs and the Colts will be.
    • Dude diving for that catch made a fan of me. 
    • He is superbly quick, nearly unguardable. A very high % as a extension of our run game. With the speed to wheel them over the top. The guy should perform as a 9/10 in our offense.    
    • I think PFF is useful for analyzing individual players. But if I want to analyze the team's pass rush performance, I don't want to know how many times the individual players pressured the QB; I want to know the number of plays we managed to pressure the opposing QB.    For example, the QB drops back 50 times in a game, and he's pressured 15 times, and sacked three times. Let's say each of those 15 plays where he's pressured, there are two defenders getting pressure. PFF would count that as 30 pressures for the defense, because they're acknowledging that two players got a pressure on one play. Same process if each sack was shared among two players; they'd count six sacks, even though the QB was only sacked on three plays.   And that's fine, because that's their focus. But I think that context needs to be acknowledged when we're talking about team performance. Because, as we know with our pass rush last year, we feasted against bad offenses, but there were too many situations where we failed to get pressure at all.    So I like to use PFR when talking about team performance, because their sack/pressure stats are on a per-play basis, rather than per-player. Both metrics can be used together, I just think PFR tells us 'the opposing QBs dropped back this many times, faced pressure on this many plays, and were sacked this many times.' And now we can clearly see how frequently the pass rush is affecting the QB. Or in the case of the 2023 Colts, how infrequently...
