His protest is certainly about race.  

He has a valid point.  

I think it's funny one small protest gesture has gotten so much attention.  

  

Seems to be working.

Have you noticed the good players that are kneeling still have jobs?

Oh boy, here we go... The Social Justice Warriors have landed in the Colts Forum...

 

If ANYONE thinks that the reason Krappernick isn't on a roster right now because of his race they are drinking the SJW Koolaid. 

 

He is a mediocre QB that has a low ceiling that decided he'd rather protest the National Anthem than develop his skills as a QB.  Teams have made the calculation that his skills as a QB aren't worth the media attention he would bring given his protests. Simple as that.

 

Does he have the right to protest?  Absolutely.  But no one ever said that the 1st Amendment didn't come with consequences.  He has the right to protest just as the teams in the NFL have the right not to hire him because of the media circus that he has surrounded himself with.

 

Can we now please just get back to football and leave the politics and SJW crap behind?  Good lord.

I am going to leave all the protest stuff out of the Kap debate.

 

He just doesn't fit the Colts offense.  They don't run the same offense that let him be successful in San Fran.  They aren't going to re-design the offense for him either for probably a handful of games.  If in the right offense is he better than Tolizen or Morris?  Yes.  If in the wrong offense though he's about as useful as Walker was in the Colts offense.

 

So politics aside if you honestly look at the Colts offense he just doesn't fit from a football standpoint no matter how you feel about his protests.

I like that he's standing up for what really is an injustice.  

That being said I do not think that's the only reason he isn't on a roster.  That's all I'll say on here about that. 

  

In  my opinion, I think he's asking for more money than he's worth and he's not dying to get back in the NFL. 

I do think he has some talent (better talent than Tolzien), but it is all moot because it's way too late to be bringing him into our system. It would take him 5-6 weeks to get settled and I'd expect Luck back by then.

I thought the same thing. Then they traded for Brissette.

    • After doing a little research and letting things settle in for almost a week since Day 1..........   Day 1 Overall Grade: A Pick: Edge Kwity Paye 1-21 My thoughts that night: Great pick. A little surprised he dropped to 21, but stoked he did. Aside from checking all the boxes in terms of potential, he's a walk off grand slam in terms of "story" and character. Only thing I didn't like is that he was Michigan product lol, but he's all Blue now.  My thoughts now: Unchanged. 2021 Impact: Will be at minimum early contributor 1-2 downs Long term impact:  Likely to develop into a 3 down guy by year 2 if not earlier. Has the size and speed to be a really well rounded pass and run defender. Financial impact: Fantastic impact to the cap with 4-5 years of value while on his rook contract. That's huge at the DE position if he turns into the guy most think he is. What EastStreet would have done at 21: The exact same thing What made me chuckle: Ojulari dropping to 50 after some of the board talk.   Day 2 Overall Grade: C Pick: DE Dayo Odeyingbo 2-54 My thoughts that night: Surprised we took a second DE. Surprised we didn't try to grab a OT. I really "liked" Dayo pre-draft. While a lot of other folks liked Boogie Basham in the 2nd, Dayo was one of my favorite targets. That said, I preferred other Day 2/second round guys simply because of the injury timing, and the fact he likely won't contribute much if at all in 2021. Overall, I like him as a long term prospect, but I don't like him as a Colts second round pick in 2021. My thoughts now: Unchanged. Likely won't change until we're into the 2022 season and we see what have. He's a raw guy, that really shouldn't be so raw after being a 3 year starter. The good news is he won't be pressed into action early, and should have a year to work on technique. Bad news is he's likely not a factor in 2021, and that's just not good for a 2nd round pick. Had he been healthy, the grade would have been B, maybe B+. I did not let the fact we didn't get an OT impact my grading. My gut says it will be year 3 before we see production worthy of a 2nd rounder, but I love his ceiling/potential. A much much better pick than Banogu in the 2nd last year in terms of risk. I could see him being a versatile guy. Not necessarily as tweener-ish as Autry or Lewis, but still someone you can move around and could be a terror on the interior in passing downs.  2021 Impact: Little to none Long term impact: High ceiling dice roll with injury and layoff concerns...., but my gut says he'll be good in year 3. Financial impact: Not harmful, but not helpful earlier. If he doesn't produce well until year 3, we'll have missed out on half the benefit of his rook contract. What EastStreet would have done at 54: After Little was picked at 45, I started hoping Ballard would trade up a few to get Cosmi or Radunz. After JOK didn't get picked in the first 10 picks of the 2nd, I also was halfway hoping we move up to get him. Still surprised he dropped to 2-20. Once 54 came, I would have taken WR Terrace Marshall Jr., DE Payton Turner, or OTs Spencer Brown or a short list of others. What made me chuckle: Colts passing on a TE that was still there after a lot of the talk on the board.    Day 3 Grade Overall Grade: C  Pick: TE Kylen Granson 4-127 Pick Grade: C+ My thoughts that night: Not shocked, but thought he would have been there in the 5th or 6th. He's one of the guys I liked for late rounds as a pure move TE, but too small that early. My thoughts now: Not much change. Still a bit of a reach IMO. He's somewhat of a Burton clone, that likely doesn't block as well. I thought Reich featured Burton too much last year out of the slot, but also thought it was because we were lacking Campbell. Hoping Campbell stays healthy this year, and hope Granson doesn't steal snaps from either Campbell or MAC. Impact - Overall, low to medium. I think he'll be a 3rd TE option. He's really not a prototypical TE, and will play in that fuzzy space between TE, HB, and slot. Not a big fan of the hybrid position if it's going to steal snaps from true TE or true slot. What EastStreet would have done at 127: Once the pick came, definitely OT Jaylon Moore. If he can't cut it at OT, he'll be a capable OG. At worst, he'll be high end flex backup. If Josh Ball's character issue checked out, would have taken him as well.  Pick : SAF Shawn Davis 5-165 Pick Grade: B- My thoughts that night: Huh? You take a SAF and didn't move up a few spots to grab Jamar Jackson, who was graded my to be a top 3 safety in the draft. I even though about Jackson at 127. My thoughts now: Warming up. Davis does offer some potential. Good flex option that should come in and compete with Willis early on. Our scheme doesn't ask much of Willis or SSs in general, so early PT isn't out of the question. Davis has range in the 2 deep sets as well. After watching film and reading reviews, he's more gifted physically and a better hitter, but less instinctual perhaps than Willis. He's likely better deep, but not as good underneath as Blackmon. Impact - If he picks up the scheme, could compete early with Willis at SS1, or as FS2 with Odum or even FS1 duties on 3rd and longs. What EastStreet would have done at 165: No brainer OT/OG Trey Smith. If you want a SAF... move up a few spots (give up a 6th or 7th) and get Jamar Jackson, or stay and take Christian Uphoff. I also liked OT Forsythe.  Pick: QB Sam Ehlinger 6-218 Pick Grade: F My thought that night: Wow, they must not think much of Eason at all. My thoughts now: You either have to say last year's 4th pick was bad, or this year's 6th was bad lol. Weak arm, short, poor pocket presence. Not going to lose sleep over a 6th round pick, but this seemed like a waste of a pick. There will be tons of vet FAs that will be available on the cheap if you're not happy with Eason.  Impact: Practice squad guy or simply cut What EastStreet would have done at 218: There's typically no obvious or no brainer picks in the 6th or 7th. I really like WR Cade Johnson at this point, but my first choice would have been OT/OG Trey Smith or CB Shakur Brown. Pick: WR Mike Strachan 7-229 Pick Grade: C My thought that night: Another big WR project? Are they giving up on Patmon already? My thoughts now: Hasn't changed much. Aside from initial thoughts, perhaps they think he can pack some weight on a play jumbo WR/TE hybrid. Still just a raw small school guy. Impact: Practice squad guy What EastStreet would have done at 229: At this point I'm pounding the table for CB Shakur Brown or LB Dylan Moses as both could end up at minimum ST studs. I'm even thinking Ballard might take a 3rd DE and was eying Charles Snowden. If we hadn't taken Davis though in the 5th, my first choice would have been SAF Uphoff. Pick: OG Will Fries 7-248 Pick Grade: C My thought that night: We improved the OL depth guys already, didn't take an early LT, so why a very limited OG prospect? My thoughts now: unchanged. Impact: Practice squad guy What EastStreet would have done at 7-248: see above at 229 lol...    Overall Draft Grade: C+
    • And his production fell sharply this past year.  Only played 38% of defensive snaps for WFT.  He had been seeing double that many.  Still had about the same sack percentage, though.   But as a depth guy, I can see some sense in it.  Local product, outside chance for HoF, mentor for Kwity and Dayo, won’t be expensive, won’t demand high snap count.
    • I don’t think that will be the case. But they can take there time with him.
    • I love Irsay's phone conversations with the players just drafted in this latest episode.  It reminded me of the contrast between Irsay and Pagano conversations after Hooker was picked.  Pagano's was cringe worthy and Irsay's was classy.
    • I'm wondering if this maybe signals that we plan on completely redshirting Dayo this season. Ballard mentioned regretting bringing Turay back too soon and him not being 100% to where he needed a 2nd surgery. He may want to play it safe with Dayo to make sure he starts his career at 100%. Who really knows at this point though.
