Zack brown and minters

Recommended Posts

I been a long time colts fan die hard . For the first time I can actually say I'm happy with what where doing on the defensive side of the ball. Bigger and strong I always hated watching are guys getting run over. Mathis freeny where great at pass rushing but we never really had linebackers . If we were to get brown and minters I'd be really happy we had to many arm tacklers this past year . I'll be praying we land them . Go colts

I don't see us getting either unfortunately. Ballard seems pretty unwilling to get in a bidding war for anyone.

It may not be a bidding war. We could have offered Poe 12-13 million for all we know and he chose to go to the better team for less.

I think we will sign one (probably Minter as its an easier and cheaper deal) and then Ballard really wants to fill up the other spot with a young guy from the draft that we can mold into a long term Colt. Some one like Riddick or Foster would be great pairing up with a guy like Minter. 

 

And if we get Brown instead of Minter, than we can probably wait a round or two and get a guy like Walker or McMillan to develop into our future leader in the middle.

Quite possible, but I also heard rumors he wanted a long term deal at 9m per year and we were offering 7m. The truth will likely never be known.

I think it's a one or the other thing at this point. Brown looks like he's choosing between us and Oakland, with Minter as a backup plan.

 

But boy I'd love to grab them both. Let me dream dammit!

Time to wake up, Minter signed with bengals.

Maybe we get Brown.

Oakland and Indy have been the only two teams to have been reported to have contacted Zach Brown. Oakland apparently low balled him so I'm just waiting for us to bring him in for a visit. If we let his tweets influence our decision to bring him we will definitely regret it.

    • I've been optimistic about JB since we lost our starter (Rest his soul) . But every Sunday (because hes unproven) I get nervous about JB and lose faith. So far, hes done a very good job. Doing just enough to keep us in games.    Playing vs Houston and seeing how well he did (late game the whole team went prevent so not too worried there), gave me a lot more confidence. But it's hard to trust a guy who has to earn it in front of literally everyone in the league.    I'll tell you what I do like however.  Because Brissett doesn't have this mega obvious talent as a QB, they arent throwing the ball constantly. It's like because you have a franchise QB, you feel this need to throw the ball, even in situations you shouldn't. You rarely establish a ground game, and when you do, it is only in compliment to the pass.    The Colts keep winning in different ways. They are multifaceted. So they CAN and DO play to their opponents weaknesses, and and have the ability to play almost any kind of offense (from what we have seen so far)..   with a top 5-7 QB, you just pass more. Vs KC, we would have passed more with any of the top 5 QBs in the NFL. But we didnt. Because we didnt have a top 5 QB to blur our vision from their weakness and our strength.. I think Frank experiencing this is great for our future. If JB becomes a top 10 QB (in most stats), this could mean heaps in the sense of valuing this team as a whole. Instead of everything being built around the QB, the team is built around the lines and go out.     Something I was thinking about earlier with Brady. It is my opinion that he is a system QB. He is the best system QB of all time. But hes in the perfect system for his strengths to flourish. Sometimes it's just better to have the right system QB. Maybe JB is the perfect system QB for our system. Just a thought guys.    We need to remember our addiction to winning as fans indeed blurs our own vision from seeing the true reality of things. 
    • Just saying the Jets aren't out of there minds suggesting it.
    • Seriously? That's the first I heard of that.   If that's true, that is very impressive for a backup QB to display that kind of leadership.   Never under estimate the importance of proper leadership. Sometimes I wondered if Andrew was assertive enough and this little nugget is an example of that. Jacoby on the other hand must be very assertive to have the guts to call a meeting like that. That meeting turned our season around and that's quite an impact from a backup QB that barely took any snaps last year. That's extremely impressive to me.   This team is in a great, great place if he can fill the void left by Andrew and his retirement. Its looking good so far.
    • The Colts are to the Texans what the Pats used to be to the Manning Colts. Texan fans hate the Colts with a passion. I never wear any of my Colts shirts when they play here in Houston.
    • O'Brien is in his last year if the Texans don't make the playoffs.
