Bryce Love tore his ACL

Recommended Posts

WOW! A disastrous ending to a disastrous season for Bryce Love. This is why he should have left last year:

Outside of adding some type of R Kelly scandal, you couldnt plan a worse year for him.

Ouch..... Was once seen as first round talent and now may fall too late day 2 or day. Someone is going to get him at a good value. Wouldn't mind him but I'm not sure who would be the odd man out at that point.

Why a RB would return to school when they have a chance to be taken fairly high in the draft is beyond me.

I'm sure its because this past year he would have gone in the 2nd when he thought he could have gone in the first this year. Im not sure what the price difference is between a mid first round and a 2nd round but I guarantee its more than I make in a year.

There are two different arguments that go against eachother - the "if i go higher I will get more money" argument and the "if I go earlier I will have less wear on the tires and will hit free agency earlier(more money on the back end)" argument. The first one also completely disregards the chance that you might not improve your draft stock and you are risking a ton for a position that gets banged up A TON and FREQUENTLY. 

 

IMO if you are day 2 prospect or higher you should always go the earliest you can but it is especially true for the RB position because all of the downsides of staying in school for an extra year are magnified because of the nature of the position.

What do you guys think of David Montgomery of Iowa State and Josh Jacobs of Alabama? Those are Day 2 backs that I love.

I haven't studied Jacobs but the little I've casually seen of him I love him. I think he was the best Alabama RB by a huge margin. I would take him over both Harris'es pretty easily. He seems like he's great in the pass game too and he seems to have great contact balance and short area quickness. 

 

Montgomery is a bit different in that he doesn't seem to be elite athlete, but I do like him a ton. He too has great contact balance, good vision and strength. He's one of the best backs breaking tackles if I remember correctly. He was running behind a bad O-Line so don't look too much at his raw numbers.  

 

I like them both. I don't want to spend a pick on a RB in the first two rounds, but I can get talked into it if one of them drops to the 3d round(I doubt it for Jacobs, but it could happen for Montgomery).

I would say it's true for the RB position.

 

I think if you are a QB and you have a good chance of improving to a first round pick you should do that.

Love might drop to the 4th or 5th at this point.  He was a day 2 prospect before, now you are looking at basically having to redshirt him a year when he gets to the NFL.

He's not much different than Mack faster maybe more power than Mack..

Dumb decision.  Plenty of time to finish his degree.  I have heard that NFL players get a substantial break after the season.

    • Was just listening to Dan Dakich.  He brought up the idea that I did earlier.  That this entire ankle/leg issue could be a made up thing just as a way out.   Remember, he was fine after the season ended.  Zero mention of a leg issue . Then he went to Europe, got married, and came back with a 'calf'.    Huh?   Did he stumble and hurt himself walking to the altar?   And everyone who has seen him train this year?  Says he looks fine.  No sign of an injury.  Doctors couldn't figure it out.  Why?  No injury?     Went through those drills last week, looked great, and then he says that he thought it might be his last time on the Lucas Oil stadium field.   Makes zero sense.  Other than this has been in his mind for quite a while.
    • It's not nearly as bad, or as big of deal as you are making it out to be. Even in the stories I have seen and read today it's not getting that much attention.  The Colts not going after the money they could get back is what's getting the press.    The booing won't have any effect on FAs; If anything, the absence of an elite QB will be a bigger issue when it comes to attracting FAs.        
    • Yeah...I shouldn't have said active. I meant games he has appeared in.   But if you just look at active games...he will have played in more than half...which is still pretty incredible for a guy drafted into the situation he was. 
    • I do agree with Jimmy our owner too. Andrew isn't really being selfish when you remember all the millions of dollars he leaving on the table.   If you're heart's not in the game anymore because your body keeps betraying you, I could see why turning the page to something else seems appealing to Luck. You watch his press conference & can't help but feel for the guy & what he's endured since he first got here in 2012. He raves about Mathis, Wayne, Hilton, Adam V. The guy doesn't have a malicious bone in his body man. He loves INDY & her diehard fans. The guy is genuinely broken up emotionally over this decision man. He didn't reach it lightly at all.    The funny thing about rage & anger is this: It's only a burden to those who carry it & refuse to release it & let it go over time. Fans have a right to be upset just remember that no one was hoodwinked, swindled, or lied to here. The situation was abrupt, unexpected, even awkward perhaps, but I honestly don't think this news was withheld on purpose by anybody inside the Colts organization. Life teaches us to adapt all the time. The only constant is change & our organization will handle this change with professionalism, dignity, & a sense of renewed purpose like we always do. 
    • I am pretty sure he was active for all 16 games plus two playoff games last year.
