Ballard & Frank's post draft interview

Recommended Posts

I loved the post draft interview into the inner workings of the draft thought process & where we are as a unit right now, as a fan it should be standard viewing, to see the mind set of our GM & head coach. I love the process that they talk about balancing Character/ Athletic ability.

Also after establishing, a locker room culture, Taking a  chance on talent down the road on more high profile FA's.  This is why I am so glad to be a Colt fan from the late 50's. Do I like winning? yes, but I think in this football world as a business, it's nice to see integrity is not completely gone. 

Anyway that's my two cent's worth, Anybody have any thoughts on the interview?

I liked their interview, too.  A good look into the people behind the picks, both the players and the organization.  So much more positive than the previous regime.

Good to know that some of us old timers are still around. I’ve been a Colts fan since 1958. They’ve been my favorite team since I became a football fan.

The fact the GM/ scouting team and the coaches appear they are on the same page is crucial.  I have heard that issues can develop when scouts get 'their guy' drafted, but the coaches were lukewarm (or worse) when they worked them out.  Seeing them all in agreement / unison is comforting.

 

P.S. - Vikings fan (Colts were a close #2) from 1968 - to around 1974 or so.  Then switched to Only the Colts from then on as #1. (But still have a light heart for the Purple gang)

Fan in Oregon since 70. Character means a great deal to me. I love this current organization from top to bottom, as much or more than any in the past. 

 

They are doing it right. Wins will be a bonus.

We have a bunch of great character guys right now which I love too. Luck, TY, Nelson, AC, Ebron, and Leonard. Much like the 2006 team with Peyton, Reggie, Freeney, Mathis, Brackett, and Saturday.

    • The Colts have had their fair share of injuries the past few seasons.   Many of these players were either expected to have good/great years, or contribute much more than they did, because of their season being cut short. If there was a single player on the roster right now, whom has had injuries in the past 3 seasons, that you could put imaginary 'bubble wrap' around to guarantee they don't get injured this season, who would it be?   Mine = Kemoko Turay. There are many players i'd want to have a healthy season, Hilton/Campbell/Hooker/ect. But to me, I truly believe if Turay had not had that season ending injury last year, he could have seriously broken out. I am praying for a healthy season for him, because having him on all the passing downs for the season with the rest of the talent we have on the front 7, I think he could have a massive season. He was leading the NFL last season in QB pressures per snap, before he was hurt. Not to mention that he was held so many times, and it was not called.  I mean blatant holding.  Because he is a real issue for O-linemen.  Just so fast, with great bend, and his hand/arm work is stellar since he's been working with Mathis. A full healthy season, I could easily see him getting 10+ sacks.
    • they cant just go from waiver claim to practice squad on another team, he would have to be on their roster a while before they can do that.
    • It will be interesting to see how Watson does without Hopkins. If they won the division again that would show me a lot. Losing Hopkins is a huge blow.
    • That's fair. Watson is mostly due to age, but I think he's finally good enough to lead them to the playoffs. However, they will decline soon with some contracts running out. I see Luck as 32 in football years because I believe he'd be rusty for a year. Just a guess though. I would take Watson too because I feel he's non injury-prone, and that's good for a long-term answer at QB. I would take Luck back in a heartbeat though as long as we didn't have to pay him anything if he retired again.
