    • Yeah good stuff @NewColtsFan. It is just a great time to be a Colts fan again. I have always been a fan but this is the best I have felt that we can win the division since 2014 when Luck dominated the division. 
    • Again, IMO it depends on what the goal is. If we are not going all in for a championship, I see no problem with letting the young guys sort out the rotation, find their spots on the team and get some playing time to develop their game. But if we are going for it this year, right now(!!) IMO OBJ should be in heavy consideration. Why OBJ - because he gives the highest ceiling IMO and that highest ceiling will be available for the playoffs, when it will be most needed. He also fits the best from every other option... well maybe TY fits pretty well too, but there is definitely a question about just how much left he has in the tank. In general, I tend to lean towards vets that have reached incredibly high level in the past. I think it's easier to project an all-pro/pro-bowl vet being able to get back to a level we've seen he can reach, than project really high level of development from players who have failed to reach that level before. And this is especially true for short periods of time and runs of several games of high leverage situations(like a playoff run).   So what does that mean for us(if we are going all in now)? IMO OBJ should be priority with players like Julio and TY still being good options. For example, even though TY has been injured and has fallen off I would still believe he has a better chance to be a difference maker in the playoffs than the likes of Parris Campbell, Ashton Dulin, Keke Coutee, etc. 
    • I’ve written a very long post explaining what I believe is happening.   It has nothing to do with the Colts being good and relevant again. I think it’s MUCH bigger than that.  I believe you’ll like what I wrote.   Hope you’ll consider it….   Please scroll up one post. 
    • Back during the combine I heard on the radio one of the nicest and best stories I’ve ever heard about Indianapolis.    Listening to the NFL Network on Sirius XM, a reporter who has covered roughly 25-30 combines said this….  (Not word for word, but a pretty close summary)   That for all the good natured teasing that Indy gets as not a very glamorous or sexy city, that it literally is the PERFECT city to host the combine, and that everyone in the NFL knows it.     That the ONLY reason they’re going to rotate it is to monetize it and make more money.  But here’s what the NFL fears.   That cities like Los Angeles and Dallas are way, WAY too big, too spread out.   And it will be hard, if not nearly impossible for cities like this to keep things organized and running smoothly as Indy does.   That there’s such thing as too big and Indy is the perfect size and they run things so well, so efficiently.  NFL people know this and LOVE this about Indy.  He said he thinks Indy will likely always be part of the rotation.   (Back to my opinion)  So, it strikes me that here’s what the NFL is doing by keeping the Combine in Indy for two more years….  The NFL is going to encourage every city that will submit bids to come and visit INDY the next two combines to see what makes us the perfect host city and what is expected.   The NFL fears moving it and having it be a disaster and poorly done.  It’s one thing to host a draft where there is one central location.  But the combine has many locations besides Lucas Oil.   Hospitals, hotels,  restaurants and more, and they don’t want things so spread out that it’s impossible to keep things organized.   Indy is just the right size, and the other bigger cities have to figure out how to overcome those obstacles.  The NFL is so image conscious, that they don’t want a self inflicted PR wound where there is LOTS of negative feedback about the new city.   Indy is the Gold Standard and they’re trying to make sure everyone else measures up!   Pretty damn nice when you think about it!
