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.

    • Maybe Denver or Washington due to cap space. I'm hoping we get a player in return if he ends up going anywhere. I wouldn't complain about getting a pick either.    I can get behind this but not just for DeAndre Baker maybe a pass rusher or interior D-line will fall. 
    • If DeAndre Baker falls past Denver, I wouldn't mind trading pick #26 and Brissett to the Dolphins in order to acquire him. That would be a deal both teams might agree to if the Dolphins are indeed interested.
    • He's my favorite FA or even early round pickup at WR this offseason 
    • I laughed when seeing "QB" listed as a team need on OnTheClock 2019.  That being said, I have to wonder if it's worth taking a flyer on a QB like Kyle Shurmur and either deal him or Brissett going forward.
    • Having faith without knowing why is "blind faith". At least when I supported certain picks that Grigson chose (like Dorsett), it was because I thought they were good and I was wrong. It wasn't because Grigson was our GM and I felt an obligation that I had to "follow" his every move. He did have 3 straight winning years and advanced further each time, but it became apparent by the end of 2014 that his drafting and FA signings were poor (besides the early part of the 2012 draft), and Luck was carrying the team. Luck got hurt afterward, but it's not like Grigson's drafting or FA signings got better. We were a team carried by Luck and the previous regimes players from 2012-2016. I didn't notice it completely until after the Pats AFC Championship game where we were completely outmatched, but I did notice poor patterns before that (especially missing on 1st round picks).   I'm just saying that the people who say that Ballard knows more than other "armchair GM's" would also say the same about Grigson, so they were merely guessing and were right on Ballard just like they were wrong about Grigson with "blind faith". I don't know, that line just bugs me a lot. Most people who say that also don't predict ahead of time who is good and who isn't, they are extremists in an either positive or negative way, and both are poor viewpoints IMO. Ok, rant over!
