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.

    • that guy is too short, has no wheels, and has to take a time out after every 6 attempts. will never make it.. nice jugs though
    • The facts.. a hung jury (twice) mistrial with most voters having sided for the alleged accuser/victim... both times.     She (prosecution) didn't drop the charges, the school (judge/jury) did.  She wanted round 3.  She wanted a full yes or no vote (4-1 or 5-0) either way, not we're split 3-2 so we'll just call it against the majority vote and designate as "Not Responsible" because it isn't 4 or more votes either way. - 'Case closed'.     There were questions (and other items) from the accuser that were never allowed in or asked in follow up questioning.  I think one of the changes to the Stanford Title IX hearing rules is to also allow an attorney to be not only in attendance but to also perform all duties of representation.  And an outside group determines what is admissible as questions/evidence, follow questions, etc...     At some level, it did, and many things at Stanford were changed after. At the  minimum, it was a mistrial x2, with no conclusive verdict either way. Then school (not prosecution) drops the case.   So she really needed to report this to both the school, and also the Police.  But with what evidence does she have to convince the LEO?  Guess the gals need some hidden body cam w/audio these days, like many folks do with dash cams (like me and my wife's cars...) and be their own TMZ...   Video, apparently the only way things get rectified anymore...     No worries, at least we know each others positions.  All is good.     Except to have (at some level) differing story from a another high achieving Stanford student about another high achieving Stanford student-   https://www.collegesimply.com/colleges/california/stanford-university/admission/     We don't even know for certain they ever got the FULL story, but articles I've read suggest that the Stanford Panel repressed/disallowed many/most of her interrogating questions and supplemental follow up inquiries to be asked of the accused.  Unless someone directly asks her directly, how could you answer as to whether her whole story was even heard or not?   If you are not truly interested to fully know those answers, then you don't ask.  At least, that's my perspective.  
    • you and me both. the period between basketball and football sucks (base) balls. the only thing i'm enjoying now is the women's WC.   i'm still leaning towards thinking we'll keep 6 WRs this season given all the puts and takes. DF it TE-lite, Cain coming back from injury, PC a rook, TY coming off being banged up, Fountain improving, Roger's reliability and cross training..... and sheet might happen like Cain being pup'd and I think Fountain can spend another year on the PS.
    • and very hard to watch the D for all those games without him.... truly epic player with truly epic injury issues...   i know all teams go through injuries, but seems like we've been especially cursed with Sanders, Manning, and Luck. That's 3 of my five favorite Colts lol.
    • Ugh Hendricks sent to the IL, prospect Adbert Alzolay might be called up. Currently down 1-0 in the 7th.
