Kurt Warner doesn't think Luck is a top-5 QB

Let's not crown the WR group just yet.

Funchess has only had 1 good season so far out of 4.

Campbell & Cain have never caught a NFL pass yet.

Doyle is a nice player, but coming off of serious hip injury and is mostly a short pattern type of receiver.

 

It has potential if things go right for the group but as of now there are some questions and growing pains.

Andrew Luck just passed for 39 TDs with Humpty Dumpty at WR at almost every position.  I'm not too worried about what he will do with this group. I'm pretty confident it's going to work out.

Like I said this WR group has some questions and inexperience. And the Humpty Dumpty's didn't do so great vs KC.

That's because they were Humpty Dumptys.  Trust what you see, these guys won't be like the last group.  It's a much better group than last year.  They will prove that.

His opinion is just that an opinion.  My guess is that he is in the miniority.

I agree there are questions in the receiving group.  But there is little doubt that it will be better.  Having Doyle back will make a big difference.  Campbells speed will open things up.  I think people are underestimating what Funchess will bring.   He's not elite by any means, but he is that big strong WR we have needed for awhile.   6'4, 225 lbs and only 25 years old.     The offense  got better at every position.

I am with you, I have no reason to believe the Colts won't be a top 3, top 4 team at worse in the AFC. Pats, Chiefs, and Chargers are very good to great. Outside of that early on I see no other team that is possibly better than us. Compared to the Ravens and Texans we clearly have the better QB, Steelers are iffy going into this year without Brown and Bell, and the Browns haven't proven anything yet.

Going to be hard to deal with Funchess and Ebron at the same time in that red zone.  I don't have any doubts about Funchess in this offense and with this QB. Once the games begin in the preseason and camp you guys will see. Ya'll stop hating on my Funch!  Then you got Mo Alie Cox starting to improve on his routes. That's 3 large men you can call on in the red area to body up on people. I can just clearly see we have better athletes this year.  Even with the rehab from the ACL surgery I know Deon Cain is going to be better than most of those guys we trotted out there last year.  Pariss hasn't even played a snap yet and I know he's a better player than Chester Rogers, Zach Pascal, Ryan Grant, and anybody else not named TY that we had last year.

You forgot Smith.

 

Walker played very good last season.   

It's fairly obvious that the Colts improved their team through the draft and in free agency.  

The were a playoff team last season and look to have taken a step forward.  The Chiefs look to have taken a step back.  I think that leaves the Colts as one of the top 3 teams in the AFC.   That would be a championship contender.   Sure, they still have to play the games, but so does every other team.

 

So, if having two rookies make a major contribution is an outlier, isn't three rookies also an outlier? I didn't include Smith because he wasn't an All Pro like the other two, but the same principle applies.

 

End of the day, we agree that the roster is improved. I still think 'championship caliber' is a major step, and I don't think we upgraded on paper to the degree that the team should be deemed 'championship caliber' right away.

 

And I'm being reserved with praise and projections, but don't think that I don't like what we have and the direction of the roster. I'm just saying, I think there's a lot to be proven on the field.

I agree, I think the WR group will be better. Hard to be worse than last years group wirhout TY.

 

But we don't know how much better. There are some questions and inexperience at the position.

I seem to recall that Manning made a lot of unknowns in the receiving core look relevant in his career. Now that our offensive's line & running game is getting better, Maybe luck can spread the wealth. Good quarterbacks can help a lot of average receivers look good, if the system you play in is right.

    • this wasn't addressed to me, but Milwaukee goes to St Louis again second weekend in September. I would have thought they could finish this game then. I think maybe Rob Manfred just wanted a shorter game. Who knows.
    • IR. PUP. Starts Wk 1.    That's covered it. 
    • Multiple times I have said the length of the deal would be the issue...like probably in four different posts in this thread. But I think there are people who would even be against paying a RB (like Zeke) that much money for 1-2 years...or wouldn't even give up a late pick for him.    I brought up Funchess because signing Zeke would be akin to signing a Funchess each offseason for a few years. From a financial standpoint...that's not unreasonable. The picks are a different discussion...but Zeke is also on a completely different level...and there is going to be an acquisition cost to getting a player like that.    The bit about Mack was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. The rest of my comment isn't meant to be an attack or even a generalization...it's just an observation about what I have seen in many fans the past year (the Mack situation actually predated a lot of this).   There seems to be a theme...that when a talented non-Colts player vet is mentioned as a possibility to acquire (who would have a cost attached)...there are many that are either dismissive or against it...to the point that late round picks are too much to give up. I think that happens more often than people ignoring the acquisition cost and saying "gimme, gimme." (To be fair...I think saying people "routinely" ignore the acquisition cost is as much of an unfair representation or generalization as what I said...just on the opposite spectrum).   I respect your opinion...and we actually agree on many things (including aspects of roster construction)...I just think I must be in the minority when it comes to taking 'big swings' around here.
    • So here we are again, bunches of cap money, hoping our draft picks are as good as last year, but sweating our QB issue.     How many draft picks are we gonna horde?   How much cap space are we gonna bank?   I realize this deal with Zeke might be just a rumor and forum fodder, but if we have a chance to bring him in, I say yes.  As I, and many other members have said many times, we have a QB that can win a super bowl, but so far we have wasted the opportunity because we lack that 1 player that completes the puzzle.     Andrew has suffered more pain playing on our team then any other Colt's player that I can recall,  I say again, it's time to loosen the purse strings and sign some proven talent to give him a fighting chance.
    • I don't look for him to do much at DT. He played really limited snaps on the interior, really only when they game was far out of hand. Much like here in Indy, there were much better guys on that interior at Ohio State. Tyquan didn't get many "meaningful" snaps inside. Even now he's going to get limited snaps inside because Autry, Hunt, and Ward as just better interior players. I still think he would be a good, cheap replacement, for Sheard, if they got him back down in the 260's. He's good against the run and may get a handful of sacks a year against average RT's. I still scratch my head on why they insist on doing what they are doing with him now.     Yea that's not the story. Him and J Bosa were the starting DE's until they left. Hubbard eventually took over for Bosa when he left and Chase was still sitting behind Tyquan, Nick, and Sam. Chase will be a stud though and I have no doubts he'll be a top-10 pick next year barring injury. 6-5 265 with stupid athleticism, and is equally as good against the run as he is rushing the passer.   Maybe they were thinking Tyquan could turn into a Michael Bennett-type, who can bounce inside and outside on the fly, but I just don't see him being that kind of guy. He wasn't overly athletic at 260'ish, so he's definitely going be hindered with another 10-15-20lbs.
