Some cool stuff here.    

Brad wells is a child with rocks for brains. How does re-signing Geathers effect hooker? They play different positions. I swear I have no clue how he has a job. Half the people on this forum are more

Which four plates?

 

Those little 5 lb ones. The bigger ones were in use...and I didn't want to be a show off.

 

4 45 lb plates (225...same as the Combine). Hunter Renfrow is apparently not much larger or stronger than me. Definitely much quicker...but it's hard to imagine him on an NFL field. He will need to give Edelman a call this summer.

Yeah, I know.  Just screwing with you.

 

Ever since I was 14-15, I've been able to get that amount, at least a number of times.  When I was into it, I could do a set or so.  I then took about 4-5 years off weight lifting and tried it once.  Practically killed myself.  Lol Needed three people to get it off of me.

I weighed like a buck 20 in HS...but was already near my current height. Just could not put on weight...even with how much I was eating as a teenager. Had to stop wrestling in HS because I started getting my butt kicked by these guys that were like 6-7" shorter than me...and just so much stronger.

 

Only two athletic things I was meant to do well...throw a baseball and run long distances.

Nah, he's just a troll and says things to get people riled up. No way he could actually be that stupid. He's not even a reporter or blogger any more, just a guy who posts outrageous stuff on Twitter to get attention.

Haha...that tweet is the very definition of trolling. Even Wells isn't dumb enough to think that one has to do with the other. (Is that a fake account?)

 

Edit: Just checked. It's a fake account.

And it's even worse when you have a guy like Holder, who does this AND comes off as arrogant and rude. 


Yeah, even when I agree with him overall on a point, he still can come off as super antagonistic. I know he gets tweeted at by angry Colts fans a lot, but then, that's the norm for most fan bases on twitter. Like this thread of tweets..."Why should your opinion even matter?" type of stuff.

Right? I mean...look at that how *y both of those tweets are (the first one is a potshot at his peers? I guess). And I don't think I recall Holder running around saying the Colts were going to win a bunch of games last year.

 

The second tweet is just pure snark.

Nah, my bench is 425. Hit 315x16 as a burn out. 

 

Damn good for a punter though. Dude can bench more than post other positions who you'd think needed to be strong

That's impressive. I think i made it to 315 on barbell bench before my rotator cuffs started to get bad. Made the switch to dumbbell press exclusively when I lived overseas in my early 20's a never looked back. Better on my shoulders and I found they provide greater chest development. The barbell makes me ache just looking at it now. Props.

I won’t be shocked with it being a one year deal if the money is going to be pretty high. Or might look like we overpaid but on a  one year deal there is no long term ramifications. That’s a good way to get a guy back on a one year deal who might have a longer deal somewhere else.

There have been some really good quotes from Hunt, Desir, and Geathers that reflect really well on Indy's new culture (or Colture even if I think that's a bit cringe-y).

It might sound cringe coming from football players but this culture is going to win us more games then any overly high priced FA. Everytime a player gets signed the other players are tweeting congrats. Even funchess says how blessed he is to be here and he hasn’t played a game yet. They are creating something special.

“[I was] battling through some things, you know,” Geathers said, via Andrew Walker of the team website. “I just didn’t want to be off the field. I wanted to be out there with the guys. I feel like I had a lot to prove. I feel like I could do a lot of things, so just week-to-week battling, and that’s just my mindset. If I can go, I can go. So now that I’m back healthy, looking good, feeling good, I’m just ready to get back and show the fans what I can do.”

Yeah I had to really work on my technique to get up there. I have constant inflammation in my rear felt now from flat. I focus on more incline now. Admittingly flat bench is more pride and ego. Can't go wrong with dumbbells though. Love them.

I can understand this because I think Ajayi probably thinks he can still start for another team instead of taking what seems to be a one year deal to share with Mack and Ballard is letting him see if that is really his market

    • Again in terms of projecting values out, this all depends on how we see Braden Smith valued.    I said to go high at $10M a year based on a few things:   1) If you asked many people is Braden Smith a top-5 RT, most would say no. I think he is. either way a top-5 RT slots in at an AAV of $10M a year right now   2) Most of the guys getting top $ at RT got that top dollar by getting it on the open market. Lane Johnson is the exception. However, the Eagles gave him that extension when there was originally talk about him moving to LT as Peters aged. The guys that signed extensions with their current teams got $10M a year or less.    3) This is to say I think Smith can totally get over $10M a year if he hits the open market and wants to test the waters. However, if the Colts looked to extend him now and give him financial security as a 2nd round pick that has not made much money yet in his career and did so in a year where the cap came down and a lot of players are going to take less money if they are not a superstar, I think him signing a deal averaging $10M a year would be a win for him and the Colts     At the end of the day, my entire point of this thread was to simply point out that us investing $50-$55M in a starting OL out of a future cap of around $200-$220M is very, very doable and arguably reasonable in terms of how Ballard likes to build through the trenches. Having an OL tie up 25% of your cap and a combined OL and QB tie up less than 40% of your cap for the next 3-4 years is actually very, very reasonable.   I have admittedly been a big advocate for Trent Williams. He is aging, sure. But he has shown no signs at all of slipping. And he even has one less year of wear and tear on his body from sitting out a year with the whole tumor fiasco where Washington really didn't do right by him with their medical team. So would I throw a 4 year deal at him with big money where the only guaranteed money was paid out in the first two years and then there were salaries on the back end that can easily allow a cut if the performance dips? Absolutely.   Either way, this was really to just get our base chatting about all this since the canned narrative everyone is spitting out is the same narrative that is being fed to fans from the media that says "they'll have too much tied up in their OL with the extension for Kelly and the upcoming extensions for Nelson and Smith." I'm just saying if we managed things the way guys like Mike Bluem have been, then we can comfortably invest in a top FA  LT if we wanted to without it being overly painful downstream. 
    • I personally do not like the idea of trying to come up with a stop gap or developmental guy at the most inportant position on the OL. Solidify that position with a dependable proven LT whether it  Villanueva or someone else. Same with DE. Find a proven pass rusher and pay him. Use the draft or WR, CB and solidifying other positions including OL. I think we are very close to being in  SB contention and 3 to 4 good players may push us over the top. We can't foolishly throw money at these guys but if we are prudent we have plenty of money to carry us.
    • Yeah, my little voice partly thinks the same (perhaps contract year type of performance). I just hate saying it out loud, as he was considered very very raw when drafted. He was used all over the place at USC, and relied way too much on his natural gifts instead of technique. Maybe he was a bit lazy, but it's also possible he was just raw, wasn't able to focus, and things are just now clicking. Or maybe he was lazy a bit, and finally grew up or matured enough to commit to his craft.    He's an interesting guy to follow. I could see it falling either way. I remember his recruiting out of HS (think he was out of Mainland) Thought for sure he'd end up at FSU, UF, or Auburn. My FSU and Auburn buds thought he was a lock lol. One of my FSU buds swore USC bought him a car lol. I was hoping ND would offer, but rumor was, he didn't have close to the grades needed.    
    • Hmmm I watched the show on  prime (all episodes) And Although I haven't seen many of the games from last year I found him to be pretty damn good and a very nice guy. I mean I wasn't a huge fan before but I think we got a winner at Qb and im looking forward to watching all year. Watch the show on prime  its worth the watch
    • Yup. If you read the above discussion, I've shared the parameters we used in a past mock, that made things go much faster. I think the the key is to stick to evenings, keep a crisp/clean big board, shorten the clock, and more or less do a "schedule" for picks so everyone knows +/- 15 minutes when they have be available. The all day all week long clock stuff is just not conducive to keeping folks attention.
