   Building from the foundation.. what a novel idea. 

    When you consider the Owner, GM, Scouting staff, HC, Coaching staff and players, you can’t help but feel optimistic!

GO COLTS!!!

Polian built from a foundation too but this team 'feels' different. 

 

Polian never built this kind of depth, he had his superstars and filled in the blanks with cheap, young players who were often undersized.

 

Ballard is drafting and signing players of seemingly equal skill sets (following his measurements profile) to offer layers of depth and competition throughout the entire roster. Their motors and intelligence will set them apart, not necessarily latent athletic ability.

 

This is something more akin to what Polian did with his Buffalo teams versus his Colts teams.

While I'm sure Indy is in the top 5, not sure how serious I can take a list that includes the Jets.....

 

I would also swap out Jax for Houston.

Interesting. The Colts are #1...but the LAR are #2. Two distinct roster building styles.

 

I think SF gets a bit slighted here. They have a great HC and a young QB who was lighting it up before getting hurt. He should be able to return just fine...and they have a ton of young talent and cap space.

 

Honestly, NO has a lot of young talent..but an older QB.

 

"Set up for the future" doesn't really mean as much in the NFL as it does other sports...unless you are Patriots (and the future doesn't really seem to matter). But it's a better place to be than not.

*sigh*

Sports journalism wouldn't be sports journalism without the over-use of superlative.

49ers need to get more attention. They are building something special imo. That defense is gonna be fierce when it comes to pass rush. Offense had its moments last year and that was without Jimmy G

I thought it was only good if the Colts were flying under the radar and people were dismissing or discounting them as a good team.

Truthfully I prefer it that way . To me it is better to be underestimated than to have a target on your back .

I think many fans prefer it that way. From what I have seen and heard...this locker room doesn't seem to give a crap about outside comments one way or another.

I'll settle for knowing the Colts will be in the thick of it for 16 games. Once again it will be fun to watch them and I'm sure we are in for some nail biters starting with their first game.

Last time Colts were this hyped, we all know what happened. I think that's why people prefer to fly under the radar. Honestly, I trust this team under the spotlight. The Colts were eventually going a ton of time in the spotlight. This team is a lot different than the one that went to the AFCCG.

    • Jack Doyle I would downgrade from 86 to 82. Darius Leonard upgrade from 84 to 88. Jabaal Sheard upgrade from 82 to 84. Pierre Desir and Kenny Moore more like 81-84, instead of 79 and 80.   Denico Autry at 76 is a joke, last year had him at 80, what did he do to lose the ratings? Rigo Sanchez at 74 is a joke. Mark Glowinski should be 78 or so, not 74. Jacoby Brisset at 71 is a joke. Anthony Walker at 69 is a joke, minimum 75. Le'Raven Clark at 56 is a joke, if he was that bad, we would have a highlight reel of his bad moves *cough* Austin Howard *cough*
    • Not sure if it was mentioned?  ...but Patterson is out for the year.   https://www.colts.com/news/rookie-center-javon-patterson-out-for-year-with-acl-injury   INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich said Tuesday that rookie center Javon Patterson will miss the 2019 season after suffering an injury to his ACL.   "Unfortunately Javon Patterson did sustain an ACL injury, so he’ll be out for the year," Reich told reporters. "Tough break for him, but one of the things we know about Javon: a high-character guy. We’ve talked to him and will give him all the support he needs.   "He’ll rehab and get ready to go for next year."   Patterson was the Colts' seventh-round (246th-overall) pick in this year's NFL Draft out of Ole Miss.
    • Eric Ebron is not to happy lol.  
    • What people are you talking about?   This was the only quote in this thread I could find that fits:   and Supe said he was wrong because Leonard lived up to his pick and the Colts got it right...  Unless I missed something, this seems like a bit of an overreaction.
