Just now, Catloaf said:

We got bailed out big time by KC trying to sabotage themselves almost as much as we are trying to sabotage ourselves.

 

Against any elite team that doesn't make mistakes, we are going to get completely wrecked (i.e. Patriots).

Only way we play them this year is in the AFCG

    • Too bad you didn't join, it's been fun! I would of probably done the same at that point IMO in taking Cosmi. The trade down looked bad in hindsight. I knew @danlhart87 was trading up with me to 22 to take a O-Lineman, but I had no idea after @WarGhost21 traded down to 26 that @DiogoSales would trade in front of him and take Eichenberg.   The story of the draft is seeing how @WarGhost21 is reacting to the increased difficulty and creating a Colts draft and putting it together. Right now, he has Terrace Marshall Jr and Gregory Rousseau while trading up from the 5th to the 3rd. I'm curious what he'll do in the 3rd to help the Colts.
    • I know, and that's what endeared him to a lot of fans.  I'm not saying he would have changed his nature under Ballard/Reich.  I'm saying they would have managed/coached him better, like they did in '18.  His nature would still come out in key moments, like that Superman dive he did in the playoff win against KC, or like the Elway helicopter run.  It just wouldn't be necessary on every frickin 3rd down, or every frickin play inside the redzone.   If Luck had been introduced to this kind of system from the get-go (like, I don't know, the previous system with Manning...), I don't think Luck would have taken nearly as many hits because he would have been getting the ball out quickly, whether pass or run, like Manning was doing up until that point.  He wouldn't have had to play hero-ball in almost every single game.   If only Luck had that kind of management/coaching from Day 1... but unfortunately, Irsay got obsessed with one facet of the Pats because they used it on the Colts repeatedly... run the ball with a power running scheme, and play aggressive defense with a big 3-4 bully defense.  So Irsay abandoned what had been working, completely flipped the front office, the scheme, and the roster, then ran a generational QB into the ground during a rebuild that never came to fruition, and now we're right back where we were a decade ago.   Maybe Ballard and Reich weren't ready in 2011 to be the GM and HC that they are today, but man... if Luck had Ballard and Reich taking the reins from Polian and Caldwell... keeping the same sort of systems in place on offense and defense and continually upgrading the roster the way Ballard has done so far (especially the OLine)...  If there was a way to align all of this up differently, so that TODAY we could be talking about how many MORE  Luck was going to bring to Indy...  
    • I have been following your guys draft. Pretty entertaining and great stuff. I almost was in it but declined at the last second. If I was @WarGhost21 and had the Colts I would've stayed at #21 and picked Sam Cosmi but that is just me. Sewell, Slater, and Darrisaw was already gone but Cosmi was there.
    • I would not go as far as unreasonable.  I think thier positions do not have nearly as much values as other. Would I pay Leonard or Q 18 million? No!! What r u going to pay Smith? Buckner makes 21 million. All of your top end  players r playing in the middle of your D and O.  No peripheral skill players at all. That's concerning to me. Let's make a bold move and get a top  end corner or hell even wide out. 
    • I voted OT as in (LT). I would take an Edge at #54. We need to make life as easy as possible for Wentz and need a LT badly.
