Not winning divisional games we don't deserve to go to the playoffs. Houston has taken care of business inside the division...and its why they deserve to move on. Losing to Jax in England was unforgivable....and to Houston twice....we have no room to be upset...we got what we deserve.

Titans are setting themselves up to be a good team the next few years. They have built a very very nice OL and have a nice running game going. QB is pretty stable with Marcus (not great but not too bad). The defense is taking steps to being decent. They are just a hardnosed team...I like that.....then add all the draft picks they have stacked up....if they draft well.....dang I think they could leap frog both us and Houston in a couple years. They won't go away anytime soon.

Hey guys,

 

we lost playoff hopes earlier this season. Loosing to our division opponents is never a good sign...especially loosing twice to Jags. After loosing to Texans last week, our chances were really thin. 

 

I'm as disappointed as everyone here, but I won't cry over Texans and Tennesse not loosing today. As I said PO passed away earlier...

If the Colts made the right coaching change I believe they could get back on track! But, I do see the Titans as a better team than Houston right now!

Yep. Funny thing is that you have a team that has been drafting top 10 picks forever in Jax and they never get any better....but Tennessee is showing the right way to turn things around and making the most of their players. With the haul of picks they got for trading back last year I think they will be ready to turn the corner.

    • Idk if there’s a Leonard like player in this draft, so I think going day 3 is fine. LB is like TE for me. I think it’s mostly a traits based position, so you draft and develop. Look at EJ Speed; sixth round pick from Tarleton who has played great.   And when you factor in the scheme variance you mentioned, LB isn’t worth drafting high. If I were Ballard I’d draft two day 3 LBs and add 1-2 FA vets.
    • Probably something close to what Gilmore signed with the Colts. I guess it'll depend on how high his market is and how long he has to sit and wait to sign somewhere. I'm assume he'll sign something close to 12-15 million per year.
    • This is a story I saw about 6 months ago and sat on it until now — draft season.    There was an interesting story in a Bucky Brooks column and it might be Colts related.   He says he surveyed every team that runs a 4-3 defense and for half of them linebacker is now a deeply discounted position, the way RB is on offense.   The story says that for those teams linebacker is now only a Day 3 draft pick.  They will no longer spend a Day One or Day Two pick on LB.      The column did not break things down by team, so no way to know who thinks this way until the next draft when we see which 4-3 team spends only a Day 3 pick on LB.    Part of the thinking is this….  If a typical game has 65 snaps for the defense, a 4-3 team is only in their base defense roughly 12-15 snaps a game.  Thats it.  The rest of the time 4-3 teams are pulling LBers for more DBs.    Teams are running a 4-2-5, or 4-1-6 or 4-0-7.   So linebackers become much less important in a 4-3 defense.     If Ballard spends a day 2 pick in LB, then he’s trying to replace Leonard.  But if not, if he spends only a Day 3 pick on LB, then CB has had a change of philosophy and has joined other teams in this new defensive thinking.    We’ll know in two months. 
    • Nah. I’ll respond to whatever anyone posts on here, just like you did mine. Are you a cop? If not, you’re missing a hell of an opportunity. You’d be great.   lets see- on this thread there has been a meme about cowboys football, posts about Brock Purdy, and other irrelevant discussions. You didn’t mind those, but you comment on mine? Which if you go back and read, is colts related. You posted a meme of eating popcorn. Lol… The thread is about key dates, which were listed in the first post. Nothing more regarding those dates on this thread. lol. Get outta herrre. 
    • what do you think he’ll pull?
