We are the Colts!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys ,

To sum this season in a nut shell, We have  set the gantlet, for next season. Let's hope we continue to draft well and  get the FA players we need to personify, the mind set we have established  for our younger  players, We need  some more skilled players on offense  & defense  to enhance our current roster  next year. With a healthy Andrew Luck, the sky is the limit, So we need to strike now why the iron is hot next season  to bring a championship season back to the Colts!  With the right  roster, and not a lot  of  injuries , I feel that the coaching staff will  be even better next season , for us to make a run at the Super Bowl! Let us prepare  for next Season, and support our team for the run at Next's years  Super Bowl! We are close to Excellence guys! let's  believe. we can do this . I know this  is  a Rah Rah pep talk guys, but I truly believe , that we are close to doing this.

We had a good season, great as far as overachieving,

 

1. 10-6 made the Playoffs

2. Won a Playoff game at Houston to regain AFC South supremacy. 

3. Made the Elite 8

4. Ballard = GM of the Year

5. Luck = Comeback Player of the Year and he is healthy.

 

-Let the good times roll baby!

We are close. If we can have a good draft & perhaps hit on a good FA or two, we will be able to take that step forward toward greatness. One thing I'm pretty sure of is we won't be picked pre season at #32 again this time.

Exceeded my expectation this year, and it felt good to be excited about the team again!

 

I'm looking forward to next season.

Oh that was the problem in the KC game the players thought they were the Cardinals!  Now I get it!

 

just kidding.

 

it was a great season.  Seasons like this or 12 or 95 are always more fun because they aren’t expected so people are less critical of them they just enjoy the ride.  Now we will find out if the Colts can take the next step.  I trust in Ballard and Reich but I probably said the samething about Grigson and Pagano after 2012 too.  Hopefully Ballard and Reich follow the model laid out by Polian and Dungy instead but that will be hard to do.  Either way I am along for the ride no matter what.

    • What you are describing is a loss of faith, not blind faith. Being positive does bring faith. Till it becomes negative then the faith dwindles till it's gone. For me I don't give a lot of attention to who is drafted till they are drafted. I don't have the resources and a whole scouting team (and coaches) to help me make the choice. The largest part of what most see is what the media shows. That means schools that draw the most attention. Good GMs pay little attention to what the media has to say. (or what the fans think to be honest).
    • I actually thought this thread would be about having the 32nd pick in the first round of the NFL draft. That would ensure that the player would have a 5th year option for us as opposed to the 34th pick or later picks, where we only have 4 year contracts.
    • This is a terrific question and a fascinating thread.  I don't have a full understanding of how compensatory picks work, but draft capital seems to be king now (especially in light of the rookie salary cap vs. out-of-control free agent contracts).  We didn't need the NFL to tell us the Colts had the best draft class of 2018.  I have reason to believe more good decisions will be made in FA and draft 2019, so this is indeed an exciting time.     Based on Ballard's 2 grand slams and other fine picks last year, you bet I'd buy a 3rd rounder with a viable backup QB.  You can't make Keenum's arm stronger and I don't know if even Luck can make Bortles more serious about football, but just having one of them aboard means you could warm up to Brissett offers and jockey for position in April.     I guess you'd have to take a look at your big board vs. team needs, run the numbers, and start wheeling and dealing accordingly.  This "game within the game" stuff is truly fascinating and probably one of the reasons I enjoy Fantasy Football so much.  Thanks for your post Superman.  Good stuff!
    • Maybe Jachai Polite will fall or even Devin White. There's some decent options at the #13 spot. Not sure if Montez Sweat is worth the #13 pick, but he might be with the combine and pro day coming up.
    • He brought in so many talent potential lads into the Shoe last year. These no-name guys are quickly becoming recognizable faces.    Gotta say that last years draft was amped with talent for many levels and positions. Some potentially playoff caliber quarterbacks too.   This year’s draft will be interesting as it could pose a challenge for most teams outside of the top 10.
