Oh shush, you literally only ever post when stuff is going against us. You're a stormweather fan. 

To all the doubters: Peace!    I've been quick at times to dog on Luck but I made a point never to trash Luck or give up since Luck played well vs Houston. Even though we lost that game I le

27 to 24. I was right! Believe in Blue!   God bless, Trolls.

After a season of great play calling to this point: Yeah not a fan of the Colts offensive game plan. its clear they want to attack deep, and its frankly... well, not working. You want to attack the Fins deep, you need to set it up with a more focused running attack. Fins have one of the WORST (this year) run D's. Theres been little to do to keep the secondary guessing if its a run or a pass. On some of the play-actions, our RBs are not selling the run out, I think I saw two attempts where the RB was even to the back of Luck while he was attempting a fake hand-off.


Defensively: We're fine. Apart from the 50/50 ball and the first drive, we've looked fine.


Offensively: Rythm. Quick passing, quick hitting runs. Put Luck under center, sell the play-action when you want a shot.

    • You may end up being right, but lets be honest, these 4 are not playmakers, they are just familiar names to us on a roster.   We need some pass rush to get this defensive scheme to work. None of these 4 have proven that they can bring this on a consistent basis   When the offensive line was weak, we drafted both Q and Smith in the same year   I hope they take the same tact this year. 1 early, and 1 mid rounds that can develop.   Also, 3 of these 4 are free agents next year. We will have some churn next year.   We had better load up at an important position, IMHO              
    • OtC has us at $23.5m w/o Carrie signing. I imagine he is close to minimum, but will figure him in at $2m for this. So that would be a top 51 cap hit of $1.2m. Dropping us to $22.3m.   Now if we were to sign Ertz and Houston for your $12m that would only be a top 51 cap hit of $10.4m, dropping our cap space to $11.9m.   Currently only 2 of our draft picks count against the top 51: #21 - $2.48m 2nd - $1.15m   Those 2 would only be a top 51 cap hit of $2m, dropping our cap space to $9.9m.     All other picks would fall below that threshold and not count against the top 51 cap.   Saying that, your scenario has us trading down(likely, imo), so good chance  it would be our 1st or 2nd, which would lower those cap hits.     So I would say your scenario would leave us with around $10m left.
    • I think Ballard thinks the guys we have now, if healthy, are better options. Add a DE in the draft and we're fine.
    • Yes I couldn’t agree more. The second round is going to be very difficult to read. I also do not see Turner going past the first 45 picks. He is getting more chatter about him. I would love to know how Ballard sees and rates him.    I would love Darrisaw but as you mentioned he doesn’t get past LAC. They need line help bad. Paye I see going early along with Phillips because the DE position is not strong this year. We hopefully get Jenkins or maybe a move and still get Cosmi. 
    • 1) The Colts pass rush was ehh with Houston.  2) Houston’s play certainly fell off as the year went along.  3) Houston is not getting any younger and already showed signs of slowing.  4) They are clearly going to draft a DE early this year.  5) There is such a thing as player development. Maybe Turey and Banagu are better this year.  6) After the draft, they will examine their roster and see if a vet DE makes sense. I would be willing to bet that Houston will still be available in 2 weeks   Conclusion - worrying about an aging, declining player right now makes little sense to me.
