Coming to Indianapolis


Recommended Posts

Indianapolis should be considered one of the top playing destinations for many free agents for the unseeable future. I'm not even talking about cap space or trying to overpay for guys. Chris Ballard has shown the ability to bring in players who won't break the bank or headlines, but show up on every Sunday and produce at a high level. Players that produce for the Colts will be awarded by CB when the time is right. Guys will come here just to play with Andrew Luck alone. Luck is healthy and the Colts are winning which will lure good players to Indianapolis. Players love to play for Frank Reich and Matt Eberflus. Chris Ballard cares about his players and doesn't tolerate any nonsense. I feel like Chris Ballard and Frank Reich can talk any player into signing with Indianapolis. I can literally listen to these two guys talk football for hours.

 

I honestly can't think of a better place to play if you're a rookie or FA. I love watching our guys play together as one without the distraction of selfish superstars like most teams. I don't think I ever saw such a young team come together as smoothly as this Colts team. I'm so proud to be a Colts fan after the whole Grigson and Pagano mess. This team is going places quick and I truly do believe Luck will have the opportunity to win not only one, but multiple championships.

 

This team is only going to grow and get better as the years go on. I honestly believe that Chris Ballard is the best GM in football. Frank Reich and Andrew Luck is the perfect marriage. And Matt Eberflus will build us a monster on defense.

 

I am so pumped up for the future in Indianapolis!

I think the Bears have a great personality in their locker room with Nagy, Hicks ,Mack, and basically their entire team. And I think Ryan Pace is a very good GM, but not better than ours. So I think Chicago and Indi are great cities for people to want to go in the future.

Nagy, Ballard, these guys are from the same core. Can't go wrong with either one.

"Club Dub" also looks like a lot of fun!

In the off-season, when Ebron was very honest about why he signed with Indy (Andrew Luck), I was a bit nervous. No one knew at that point how much rust Luck would need to knock off.  

It’s crazy to look back and compare that to where we are right now. Ebron’s choice paid off. I’m sure more players will want to follow suit next offseason.

With the way our O-Line and Luck are balling out, many free agents will want to come here.  Look at LeVeon Bell...  He knows 4 or 5 years in the backfield with Luck will make him a lock for a Gold Jacket. 

 

Throw in Leonard turning heads on D & Coach Flus, I definitely think we are about to be a prime destination for free agents.  But I expect Ballard to be prudent.  The "Super Team" approach rarely works.  Look at the Rams coming back to reality.  Chemistry matters when times get rough.

I don't think the Rams are a good example to use.   They are playoff bound and probably will get a bye.   They are loaded with young players and will probably be good for years to come.

All valid points.   Market size is the only detraction.   Agents love for their guys to sign in big markets.  

That doesn't appear to matter much in the NFL.  Guys wanna go where the can get paid and used properly.

    • That sounds good.    I would be fine with 6-8 pm and 9-11 pm ET with a 5 minute window for picks, so 16 picks should be done in 120 minutes. It would be like the real draft starting Day 3, where they get only 5 minutes between picks.     Would you have time around the beginning of April to help moderate this along with me? If it is a small window of time, it is a smaller time commitment on my front and yours, so I like this idea.   I can ask @NFLfan @csmopar and @danlhart87 again if they would be willing to make themselves available for those small windows of time thus giving us plenty of options. Let us bring this thread back up then.
    • First of all, I'd say bad fit for us. He's a 3-4 DE. In our system he'd be a tweener, or maybe even a 3T.  Great against the run, average vs the pass. Very solid 3 down guy overall in a 3-4.   IMO, even if he was a fit, we don't need run D help, and he'd be too expensive. Overall just not the benefit and value we need.    
    • Here's what we did on another board a few years ago. Worked out pretty good. 1 Round per evening 2 windows each night... picks 1-16, and then 17-32 (I think it was 7p-8p and 9-10, but could have been 8-9 and 10-11). That way, guys new pretty much when they needed to be there, and only needed to pay attention for roughly an hour per day. Really not even that long. Also gave the mods some time between windows to tidy up. 3 minute clock hence the "flash" term. If you miss a pick, you drop 5 spots (basically giving them an extra 15 minutes). If they missed it a second time, they get bumped to the end of the round and have up to an hour before the next days round starts. If they miss that, they get best player based on their primary needs.  We had 3 threads going at once, and 3 moderators. One thread for the pick announcements and general comments, one with a constantly updated order and big board, and one to manage trades. The big board management was great in terms of keeping it going and checking off who is gone. We also published team needs, but I can't remember if we tracked it except for using it when folks missed their window. Only trades allowed are pick for pick(s) so very little approval needed. No picks for existing players (We did the mock post FA fury, I think we started about 2 weeks prior to the draft).
    • I didn't say he could be as good as Leonard. I said pretty clearly that if Leonard was 95/100 That I think Oke's ceiling is about 86-90.    By in which I also added that any team would be alright that that level of play. I think you are misunderstanding. Because we both seem to agree that Oke will more than likely be a pretty darn good player.
