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.

    • So true    My degree in Political Science and a lifetime around kids under 18 have taught me a lot 
    • I am one that has no problem with people using stats to help measure a player. I got my degree in Business from IUPUI and had to take rough math classes and a statistic class that was off the chart. Stats are important, I get that. All I have ever said is there are more to rating a player than stats. Leadership is gigantic, at least to me it is, that is not a stat and can't be measured. JB is a great leader. The only 2 stats some seem to keep bringing up in here to say JB struggles or is below average are YPA and total yards passing per game. Every time someone tries to come back and say well he has 15 TD's in 8 games and only 4 INT's it gets ignored by those same people. Those 2 stats are crucial to stat people. If we had a QB that threw a lot of INT's we would stink period. Also another crucial stat is red zone efficiency, JB is great in the red zone.    To me this is just a waste of a post and my last one on it because with some they ignore other facts other than YPA and total yards passing. How can anyone have a reasonable debate with someone when they ignore things like a QB's leadership, that the WR core is average at best, etc.. Even when Hilton has played this season he has been banged up for the most part.   One last thing, it would be one thing if we were losing to bring up JB's yards passing but we are winning. JB isn't costing us any games as of now. If it was costing us games I would buy into some of these posts but it's not. I was listening to the Dan Dakich show earlier and he was saying how some Colts fans do not think JB is any good. He just laughed and said it is because they want a QB that throws for 5000 yards and is flashy. I rarely agree with him but he has a good point here. Some just need to accept JB isn't Andrew Luck and we now have a run 1st offense. I have accepted it because we are winning and as a fan have to accept it because that is the hand we are dealt. The only alternative is, not to watch anymore.
    • Good tidbits. To add - We were gifted a in-the-grasp on a TD throw by Watkins. A healthy Fuller scares me. 
    • The Week 7 meeting: Colts 30 TX 23 Brissett was 26 of 39 for 326 yards passing nd 4 TDs He is 4-0 vs, TX. Hooker & Kenny Moore did not play. TX had 10 penalties for 54 yards. TX were 2 for 5 in the Red Zone. The Colts did not get one first down running the ball. Watson was 23 of 43 for 308 yards. Hopkins caught nine passes. Will Fuller left the game with an injury. What impact if any will the hammering of the Texans have on their game?  The Texans have the Patriots next.
    • We should run all over Carolina, so that's positive. Allen is so inconsistent. He's putting up plenty of yards, but he's been an INT machine at times. If he has a clean game, could be trouble. I was very surprised they beat TN, and stayed close to GB in GB.
