If Colts take RB at 26 they are going to the SB

Recommended Posts

I like the crazy coincidence of it but this board will have a complete melt down if we draft a running back in the 1st. But I guess if that's the best player available then it would make sense.

I don’t think there is any chance a RB is the best player available at 26. I do like the Miami thing though.

I wouldnt be opposed to taking him with our early second. His tape is so inpressive. So much agility and shiftiness.

Wow!  Talk about so many coincidences.  There is a saying about history repeating itself and they really like Jacobs.  So maybe a three peat is in the making.

Yeah at first I’d be a bit confused. I’d accept it though. We have 2 round picks to build a defense.

Guess who the Colts drafted in 1971. Yep. A RB. Don McCauley at #22 in rd 1. That is crazy. Now it makes me wonder how many times a RB was drafted and we didn't make it.

 

Edit: It's happened 9 times when we didn't make it. 7 times in Baltimore (53, 56, 61, 67, 70, 79, 80) and twice in Indy (93 Faulk and 99 Edge)

It would make sense if we didn’t have Mack. But a RB first round when you have Mack seems crazy.

 

Mt opinion a running back should never be taken in the first round unless your a team ready to win a SB. They just don’t play long enough and if you have a good oline you can get a great RB after the second round.

1999 comes to mind. That loss to TEN was disappointing.

Donald Brown. How quickly he has been forgotten. I completely forgot about him

I think the Colts are drumming up interest for Jacobs in Rd#1 in order to leverage a trade back.

Not to mention luck and manning both being 30.

 

 

 

It has to be true. Patriots select Sony Michel in round 1 and went to the SB too.

 

:omg:

Fake Media!  We traded a first for Trent and went nowhere!

 

That is the thing. We did not draft him. :)

Those Peyton led teams should have gone to more SBs, if Peyton and the O had played up to the capital invested in them more often, IMO.

Yeah, Manning was great, but there were so many years they choked away Super Bowl appearances.  It was truly a waste.

I was a Colts fan for a lot of years between Unitas and Manning and except for a few years with Bert Jones it was a major struggle. The years with Peyton were far from a waste - a lot of wins, a lot of division championships and two trips to the Super Bowl, plus we were a contender every year for over a decade.

We can’t run all game. We need defense to stop people.

We need offense. Our offense is why we lost to the chiefs as they didn't  show. Our offense is also why the jags shut us out

If the Colts were going for an offensive player in RD1 why not draft Hockenson? :number1:

Hockenson will go in the top 12 picks most likely. It'd cost a tremendous amount of draft capital to trade up for him.

The Miami thing holds regardless of whether the Colts also draft a RB in the preceding draft.  Super Bowls III and V were also played in Miami by the Baltimore Colts.   Every time the Colts have played in the Super Bowl has been in Miami.

Pairing  a 1st round rb with mack would give us a running game to be feared  and would open up the passing game more

I'm fine with a 1st Rd RB if everyone else disappears like Avengers Endgame. 1) Thanos snaps fingers: 2) Jacobs is ALL that is left. 3) Good pick Chris.

 

Isn't that the Avengers Infinity Wars? I haven't seen the Avengers Endgame which is to be released this Friday.

 

If you are a spoiler, no spoilers, please!!! :)

 Interesting tidbit: NE has never won a SB with a defense ranked worse than 8th in points allowed.

    Now, that’s not a coincidence.

    Getting push up the middle trumps RB, IMO. That and getting depth, in case key guys go down. I like Wilkins, Hines and a mid to late round bruiser, should Mack get hurt.

I hope they draft a TE. Would that cause a meltdown?

Jack Doyle and and Eric Enron are both free agents after next year. Drafting a young TE is wise if you ask me.

    • Willis - the 4th round pick they traded up to get will be lucky to make the 53?  Man that is highly questionable. I’d say he is much closer to a lock to make the roster than be cut prior to opening day. 
    • Well Im back been a long haul , my wife being blind had rotator cuff surgery and been in bad turn at same time so my cups been full.  But look lol the Central is just about where I left it. 162 games tells the story . Cards Cubs Brewers all right there together.
    • Faulk was a great player, but he was never a pure grind out yards type running back. Edge was.   James is a huge part of why the offense exploded in 1999 after we traded Faulk & drafted James. The play action to Edge/ bomb over the top to Harrison was absolutely LETHAL 
    • As you have noticed,  I have taken a long time to respond.   Apologies in advance,  my response is long....   Everything you think I "overstated" I personally think I understated.     And I think all the arguments you used to make a case that the spring is more ideal than the winter is hugely overstated.   Look at the last sentence of your post...    how you describe "looking at the bigger picture and taking your time..."        Says who?      Who says an owner didn't look at the bigger picture in December as a disappointing season was coming to an end and that a decision was rushed?    That's entirely written by you as opinion based on zero known facts.    And it's your interpretation that better decisions can be made in the spring.   Huh?    When it's too late to fire the HC and his staff that gave you the disappointing previous season that got the GM fired in the first place.    Now, your new GM has to deal with a HC and staff that he didn't hire.   Now everyone in the building is walking on pins and neeedles wondering if they'll get fired or be retained.   So,  all the advantages of doing those decisions in winter of Y1 for the new GM,  now have to be done in winter of Y2.     So, if they're going to be done,  how is it better to flush a year down the drain and do it the following year?   I see lots of opinion,  and very little fact.    You've tossed out a number of interesting names that are available now....    nice names and none were in the running for a GM job 5 months ago,  and suddenly you think the next hot GM is in the pile?    I appreciate that Nick Caserio might be the exception to the Patriots rule from the BB tree....    but BB has a poor record of turning out good HC's elsewhere.   He might someday....   but not so far.    Front office is decent I think, so maybe Caserio is good?   But Don't you want to get all of this done sooner than later?    Don't you want to rip the band-aid off ASAP?   Doesn't the new GM want to hire his own guy,  his own staff, ASAP?     And if you think the answer is no,  then why don't all GM's who get hired in January,  do it your way?    Why don't they keep the staff,  the HC,  coordinators and assistants,  all the front office types and the scouts,  and do all the changes the following winter?     Why don't they do that?   They don't,  do they?   I really wish this was just a simple thought experiment.   That you were simply making a case that making a GM change in the spring is do-able and not anythig else.    Some here don't understand when it happens at all in the spring and I've made the argument several times that the spring isn't as bad as you think.    Doable under certain circumstances is perfectly OK.   But you're not doing that.     You're not arguing for doable.   Instead you're arguing for desireable.    And you think it's an easy decision.    I confess that even as your biggest admirer,  perhaps BECAUSE I'm your biggest admirer,  I find this position more than a little head scratching.....   Just saying....
