Three Colts on All-Under-25 Team

Recommended Posts

A great reminder of how young this team is. It is really exciting to see Colts management stay disciplined in free agency with an eye on keeping these young guys around when their contracts come up. It is a style that requires a lot of discipline, but is great for the fans as we can watch these guys grow and develop, instead of having massive roster turnover every year as we constantly have to release great players for "cap reasons".

I dont understand those who see this as a problem.

It is always nice to know the players names year after year and feel you get to know them. It’s hard to get into a team when players never stick around. The manning years were fun because we got attatched to the players.

Love the position you take on this Harp. I feel the same way. Free agency has made it hard to feel comfortable having favorite players outside QB1. 4 years and away they go. I'm tired of hearing about Bell's and Brown's too. Do people not understand that it is not guaranteed that last years pro bowler can come to Indy and blow out his knee in training camp? What then? Hang on to that money Chris, I wanna see the Maniac, Big Q and Parris Cambell wearing a horseshoe for years to come.

All three are well deserving of this recognition. No one saw Smith

or Leonard being this good, especially Smith being moved to

Tackle.

Based on his comments, I don't think Ballard thought that.

I wonder how some of the '17 Draft class feels not being on the list?

 

 

Hooker seldom gets a ball thrown his way to showcase his talents, Quincy

Wilson was drafted young and has struggled with the transition to the

NFL, Mack is really good but at the RB position you really have to turn

heads and Walker is a good linebacker but not great.

Add to that that this list was only 26 players and there are 32 teams and you really have to stand out to make it.   

I think Ballard has been doing great.   Keeping the Salary cap in check, signing 2nd or 3rd tier free agents to decent contracts and drafting very well.   It will be interesting in a couple years when these players are due for their next contracts.   Some will have to be let go most likely.    The downfall of great drafts is that it marks a time when they all are due high dollars.   I think that is where Ballards push for good locker room guys may pay off.   Maybe some will sign for a bit less to stay on a team they like and enjoy.

It's the grass is always greener syndrome.  Our FA can't be as good as another team's FA. 

 

We could sign 10 of our own, but if we don't sign someone from another team, inevitably some fans will complain about us not signing any FAs.

Hoping to add Campbell and Ya-Sin to this list next year.  That would not suck.

    • Aye, laddie. Are ye picking' a fight?  
    • We had that dufus that came from the Canadian league i think that was about Pittman's size.  He got a huge hopeful hype on the board.  Reggie said he wished he had that body size.  You can't expect Pittman to have Reggie's foot quickness.  No, this kid is going to Take the 5 yard contact and be able to bump those little friars to create space. It is going to be a blast in 2021.
    • I remember when Wayne was drafted he was considered the best route runner in his class.  If Pittman can improve there we should be in a great place.  
    • I think it's pretty selfish that some people appreciate DL for 2 hours a day. The other 22 hours, they wish not to hear about. Very telling. If that's the attitude, although I'm a Colts fan since Edge arrived, there are way more important things than a shiny new Ferrari. And if using his platform to speak on these issues, than more power to him.   Walk in the shoes of police? How about walking in the shoes of DL. At least the Police gets welcomed in a Chipotle. I guess Colts fans want to hear/walk in the shoes of a Police's "positive" dining experience instead.   How dare anyone slander or slights someone's negative mistreatment due to their appearance. And the ones who don't want to hear about it, are typically Not the ones who are being judged. Instead of going against the mistreatment, they hide, tune out, don't want to hear about it. You are pretty messed up. This is what the attention should be on. The dismissal of humanity.
    • The Colts are still under the cap and they are not signing other players.  The money they are paying JB is not stopping them.  The amount they gave JB was too much, but it did not affect the team, just the owners pockets.
