Tanking is for losers with a loser mentality. We are not very good but these players are paid to do their best. There is such a thing as pride but you don't seem to know what that means.

:thmup:

I am going to walk away from this.  Your idea is correct that higher draft picks are desirable.  The idea of losing a game for that to happen is.... I will say it again.... stupid.  Why not put the practice squad on the field if that is all that matters.  You obviously don't get that.

 

I don't care to be called names.  If you would like to take this to private messaging I am good with that.  Don't call me a name again openly on this forum.

You will find the point in Chart 1-A below. Colts are in no danger of picking 32nd this year. Most likely the Colts are picking top 5, and it's hard to see any scenario where the Colts will pick outside the top 10.

 

Enjoy the win against our division opponent Houston today.

who spends 3 hours on sunday to watch a game and hope your team loses?

 

couldnt care less if we pick third or forth in the draft right now

 

 

I know I don't get it either. To the people that want us to lose why even watch? Just check the score out after the game and do something else during the game. You know how goofy it would look if someone had full Colts gear on but was rooting for the other team lmao

I enjoyed the game today.  With my new found low expectations, I actually was able to keep my blood pressure in a reasonable range  :)

Reasonable expectations. That's what I preach to myself in all aspects of my life. :)

We will still pick in the Top 10 and Chuck will still be gone, just beating Houston is nice because it's Houston.

I agree totally. It irks the hell out of me when people get on here celebrating losing. What kind of fan wants their team to look bad ?

Damn right I don't like seing my team blow every year like you all lol 

 

You want to see the team lose so that they will have better draft position?  Fine, that is your right as a fan.  You can root for whatever you want to.  You want to discuss how losing now is better for the team in the short term?  Again, fine.  You have a legitimate argument.  But why do you feel the need to come in directly after a win and chastise fans of your team for feeling good that your team won a game?  Why can't you just let people enjoy the win, even if you don't?  What do you gain by raining on the parade for everybody else?  Lets say that you succeed and you convince everybody that they should feel lousy about this win.  What does that accomplish?  Nothing will be any different.  The Colts still won.  Convincing everybody that they shouldn't feel good about it doesn't change it.  It doesn't change what is going to happen in future games.  So why?  Why do you feel the need to bring down the people that are able to feel good about the win?

Just enjoy the win today because it's Houston, we will still be lucky to win 6 games at most so we will be picking in the Top 10 regardless and Chuck will be gone anyway. With a Top 10 pick we will still either get a great Pass Rusher or top OT.

The higher the pick the higher the chance we have to trade back with a QB needy team to get multiple high picks we need that as a team more then just one high pick

Lets say we pick 10th which is a great spot still to be in, Ballard can do a lot with that + we will be picking high in each round. We probably either finish 5-11 or 6-10. Chuck will be gone too so you will get your wish there as well. I am just glad we beat Houston, sick of losing to them lately.

You guys worry too much about who we lose too who cares if it's a division team or not we need the losses get good then come back and beat the hell out of them

Yes and higher picks give you a higher probability of getting good players.  Patriots are a bad example, they're contenders because of Brady and Belichick 

How about Pittsburgh or Green Bay then?

    • Charisma is a gift. Just like leadership qualities. Thats it. Russel Wilson has both. 
    • I took NCFs post as sarcasm. 
    • So you’re saying they all had the same idea at roughly the same idea?   Oh-Kay.....   Ive been wrong times before and I know I’ll be wrong again.   Perhaps thus is one of those times.   I guess we will find out tomorrow....   Perhaps you’re right.  There have been no tweets from players or media to confirm.   You’d think that would’ve happened.   OK,  I’m wrong!     
    • The OP says "What's everyone think? ..... What's everyone think?" meaning he's asking a question what other people think.  There is no factual basis to Superfly, John Hammond, or Scott P's posts -- they are just saying what they think.  Scott P. says nothing about NE  -- he says "Traded for a draft pick in the 5th thru 7th rounds this year or in 2021...." answering the OP's question by telling the OP what he thinks may happen with Wilson.  There are no 'details' there, and it says in this year or in 2021.   There's not a fact anywhere saying Wilson has been cut or that he's signed with New England (or any other team).
    • He ran a 4.94 second 40.  Very few LBs in the NFL are slower than that (heck, a lot of DL are faster than that - Turay ran a 4.65, Justin Houston is listed as a 4.62,  Banogu is 4.62.... etc.).     So no, he's not mobile.  He is difficult to take down, though, and as a couple other posters have said he did very well last year on QB sneaks in short yard situations.       Kelly's not exactly a burner with a 4.74 forty.  He's also quite a bit smaller than Jacoby.  Other than instances where the score indicates the game is over, the only packages I can really see Jacoby being better than Rivers are in QB sneak situations.  I don't see Kelly, due to his size, excelling there.     Peyton was actually faster (4.8 forty) than Jacoby (4.94).     I think we'll keep Jacoby through this season, unless we get a steal from a team like NE and can trade him for a decent draft pick.     After Manning missed that year and we went 2-14, Irsay made it very clear that he doesn't want that to happen ever again and publicly stated that the Colts would always have a solid backup from there on out.  I think Ballard sees that, as well.  Reich, being a backup most of his career, also sees that (and Reich won some very big games in Buffalo when Jim Kelly was hurt).  Reich states in the interview that he wants a backup that can come in and win 2-3 games if needed.  Jacoby can do that (maybe Kelly can, too, but nobody's seen him in a live regular season game to have any idea there).       I actually think we have solid depth in terms of we'll have guys who will be very good 4th/5th WRs.  TY's a solid 1-2 guy.  Parris Campbell is unproven (I think he can be a solid slot guy, but I'll have to see him get through a season where he's healthy to believe it).     IMO, we desperately need to get a 1A to TY before the season.  I also think we need (or could sorely use) a solid TE who can stretch the field.     When Reich says he's happy with the depth at WR, I don't think he's going to say the alternative "Our WRs are garbage."  I think guys like Fountain, Pascal, Dulin (maybe Ishmael, Adams, C. Williams) will be fine as 4th or 5th WRs.  I just don't think the FO should be trusting them to be solid #2 or 3 WRs.  Reich does say, right after he says he likes our WR depth, that they're 'looking very hard' at WRs (coupled with Ballard mentioning multiple times that this draft is loaded at WR), I suspect we'll draft at least 1 WR with one of our top 3 picks.
