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 don’t have to dumb myself down and accept or agree with everything my team does to be a fan of that team.  I’m a Colts fan because that is the team I fell in love with.  Simple as that. Doesn’t mean I close my eyes to their faults and shortcomings.  I support them in spite of them and hope for them to rise above. You can do better than that one man.  Lol    The Colts are a professional team in the business world of sports entertainment.  You should not be making decisions in the best interest of your business enterprise based on emotion.  It seldom leads to success.  I hate the Pats but their model is proven successful in these type of situations.  Irsay has found little success following his heart of late.  It is what it is.  Fandom has nothing to do with it.  
    • Ok so then why are you a Colts fan and not a Patriots fan? If the win at all costs and stone cold business like approach is what you desire in a franchise what are you doing here? You made the case and presented evidence that that’s just how we do business. Which is true.    Why there’s such an inability for people to understand it, and acknowledge it for what it is is beyond me.    People have no sense of the depth of reality here. To them Adam is just a character on a weekly television show that can be written off and replaced without a second thought.    The reality of the situation is different. It’s just not that cut and dried. 
    • He's certainly not irredeemable. There's just a lot more scrutiny that comes with the QB position, fair or not. You can be WR and do drugs, beat women/kids, and still get more chances. CK did none of that.   I'm pretty sure uncle Jim put a foot up his backside, and made a call to Frank. I hope that's enough (Jim's foot), and I think the Colts (and Frank) are a good spot to provide support for him. 
    • I've been touting 2020 as "the year" for a while now.  I might be a year too early, but in watching the league this year one thing has struck me:  there aren't any truly "elite" teams out there.  Yes some are better than others, but IMHO the difference between the top and the bottom isn't as great as it used to be.  The Colts are clearly among the average teams, so I think with another shrewd draft (and that Skins round 2 pick sure looks good!) and a couple of impact FA's, I think this team can contend next year.  And Mr. Brady isn't going to be around much longer either.
