Were you a Colts fan before Andrew was drafted?

 

No. To be honest, I was only a casual NFL fan before he was drafted. I would watch games and appreciate players like Peyton and Brees, but not to the extent I do now. Basketball was my game.

Okay. I don't like the NBA anymore. I don't have a favorite team. Which is your team? Don't tell me Golden State. haha

Where did everyone on here go to college?

 

 I went to the University of Southern Indiana was going to go to my Dads Alma mater University of Evansville to work with the FB team but they would only take on of my many scholarships and then they dropped FB

 

That's awesome. What position did you like to coach the most?

Several reasons including health. Never liked sleep overs

 

I wanted to go away. It was awesome. And I went to a school that most of you have never heard of but they call it the Ivy of the State University of NY system. Binghamtom University. If I were going now, tuition would probably be free. I had to pay then.

Hey, you can't judge me lol. I was born and raised in the Bay haha 

 

Yeah I root for the Warriors. But I remember when we sucked. I know we're overrun with bandwagoners now.

I worked with the OL, broke down game film, developed Offensive play charts and did some play calling. I actually started during my senior year and worked/coached for nearly 7 years. I also got to coach with my Dad

 

That's amazing. You must have a unique understanding of the deficiencies on this Colts team. How do you feel about Chud?

It's all good. I know we kind of earned the hate after the KD move. 

 

You don't root for the Timberwolves? They're going to have a good year.

 

I am a New Yorker. I chose the Vikings when I was in college. Speaking of bandwagons, I did not want to jump on the SB-winning Giants bandwagon and chose a team whose players I liked.

 

I also chose Stanford. I like that they recruit players who I know if they don't make it in football can make it in some other profession.

 

In baseball I am a New York Mets fan. (That one makes sense.)

John Randle, Cris Carter, Henry Thomas, Chris Doleman, Robert Griffith (loved him)

 

One of my favorite Vikings was a Stanford grad, Chris Walsh.

 

Some really great players on that list. 

 

I hope Bradford is okay.

    • If the Colts are looking for a YAC guy, Corley could be a target.  He does look like Debo.  Basically a RB once he has the ball.  I like him too.  It really depends on if they’re looking for a more vertical threat. Corely does show vertical shots on film but probably not his number one strength. 
    • Had to pull off a trade with the Bills to gain extra R5 pick.   Personally, am warming up to Luke.  Then again rooted heavily for him as Nebraska's QB and glad to see him succeed as a wide receiver.   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).  Liking Luke's low drop percentage and ability to make contested catches.  Pretty solid company to be compared to Odunze who had issues prior season and outdone Marvin Harrison Jr. this year.     SS Trey Taylor (Air Force) won Jim Thorpe Award in 2023 with strong leadership qualities in the secondary.  Taylor is related to Ed Reed.  After 9 weeks Taylor’s 88.5 coverage grade is second among Group of Five safeties while posting an impressive 78.8 run-defense grade.  Taylor overall PFF grade of 85.8.
    • My top 4 realistic draft picks.  Not sure we take a WR in Round 1 but would look for Roman Wilson in Round 3 and Luke in Round 5.  Swing a trade for multiple Round 5 draft picks and add another offensive weapon in TE Ben Sinnott whom I think is probably the third best TE in the class.    WR Adonai Mitchell (Texas) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 78th in yards per route (1.72), sixth in drop percentage (1.8 percent; one drop), 79th in contested catches (36.4 percent; 4-of-11) and 100th in YAC per catch (3.2). He caught 8-of-22 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield.   WR Xavier Legette (SC) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked fifth in yards per route (3.15), 18th in drop percentage (2.7), 49th in contested catches (47.6 percent; 10-of-21) and 29th in YAC per catch (6.4). He caught 13-of-24 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield, good for an eighth-ranked 54.2 percent.   WR Roman Wilson (Michigan) - According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 13th in yards per route (2.68), ninth in drop percentage (2.0 percent; one drop), 72nd in contested catches (37.5 percent; 3-of-8) and 67th in YAC per catch (4.6).   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).
    • FWIW:   At $6 million per that made MAC one of the top-12 paid players on the Colts 2023 roster.   Do you still think he’s cheap?  
    • Isn’t it time to look for a home run pick for the offense? Bowers would be that kind of pick. Having a dynamic TE would be huge and would arguably be equal to picking up a WR1 running mate for Pitt. If he’s available at 15 I think it’s a no brainer to pick him.
