A defining year for Luck?

Recommended Posts

MVP season for Andrew Luck tbh.

 

I may look like a complete * come December but I'm just going off what I feel.

To your point, this team is set up for success better than it ever has been. 

Every single aspect of our team, from the GM, to the coaching, to the trainers, to each individual squad on our roster is better than it ever has been in the Luck Era (outside of special teams being somewhat equal. A younger Vinny and Pat punting you could argue is better than current Vinny and Rigo.)

The run game, the O-Line, the receivers, the TE's, the defense... it's all the best it's been during the Luck Era.

 

Seeing our 2nd year guys develop, bringing in some impact starters from this year's draft... we're gonna be built to hang with anybody.

Eh, the receivers need work but I have faith in Cain and Funchess to turn that around. 

 

It was a straight up dropathon those first five games last season and it really seemed to come back to bite us in the butt against the Chiefs.

Cute and all.  But it hasn't happened yet and counting on it happening next year seems wishful thinking.

Are you honestly gonna tell me Brady didn't look slowed down as the season went on?

Perhaps.  Enough that he falls off the cliff this year?  Believe it when I see it.

 

I just think counting on it to happen from the guy is an exercise in futility.  I fully expect them to be in contention again next year because they are ALWAYS in contention.

Oh of course. Im not saying the pats won't contend. I'm just saying there might be cracks in the armor.

    • With no TEs under contract beyond the 2019 season, TE is most definitely a need, albeit more of an under the radar need than a glaring one. But if a guy like Hockensen is there, & all of the DL/EDGE guys that the Colts have 1st round grades on are gone, then I have zero issues taking a TE.
    • I don't like how any of the available simulators do it. They all use a single board for all teams and as we know this is not how the draft works... different teams have different boards and they draft by them while factoring in needs to some extent.    I wanted to make a different type of simulator myself, but didn't have the time this year. I think I will make one for next year and I will take different boards and assign them to different teams and this way you could get more representative way of how the draft would unfold. Ideally you would have some approximation for a board for all different teams. For example, if you know that a team runs zone blocking scheme predominantly you bump up all zone blocking OLinemen and you drop all the power blocking OLinement for this team's specific board... If they run press-man defense you bump up the best press-corners and you drop all the off-man zone corners for this team's specific board.. .etc. You get the idea. Get somewhat personalized boards for every team depending on what they run and how they play.   It won't be perfect but I feel like it might give you better idea of how teams would draft and IMO it will give you better prediction of what the chance is that certain players drop to certain positions. 
    • Understandable, but yeah. I have no college team rooting interest in this one. I just like Tillery better. (on the field that is... Wilkins seems to be drawing rave reviews about his off-field/leadership/character stuff, while like we discussed earlier Tillery is drawing some questions about being too well-rounded outside of football... I don't know how to evaluate those and I haven't talked to them so... I defer to who I like on the field and leave the character evaluation to the pros(Ballard and the Colts FO))
    • I don't know how to do it, but I'm pretty sure they can create an aggregate big board with a bunch of different boards, mocks, variables, etc., and track the trends from that board as the draft unfurls. TDN has a predictive big board that their mock machine is based on. It can't be that hard.
