Gotta be honest (I know we’re all loving Kelly) but that was not a great throw.  It was behind Hale.  Kinda like how Luck use to try to guide his crossing throws in there instead of just throwing it.  Just a fluke play on the interception. Down by contact though.

disagree. hale was double covered. ball was fine. hentges has to hang onto that ball. a TE can't let a DB muscle him.

I disagree with you, but also agree with you.  The ball was behind him, but it was catch able.  He should have at least touched the guy with the ball.

Yeah we totally disagree.  Hale had to stop his momentum which brought the ball back to the DB.  Put it out front & that dB had no shot at the ball.

    • Why would you compare a professional GM to a fan on the internet, then say you'll take the GM?     Seems like an odd way to contribute to a thread.   Said it for a reason other than to contribute maybe?   What is that reason?
    • I’m going to go out on a limb and say the positions you value may not be in line with the positions Chris Ballard values.   I’ll go with Ballard and take my chances.... 
    • This is as close to reading things that I have been saying for some time now.    WR, DB, PR are significant to the passing game, and we lack depth and probably top tier talent in those corps and have for years, extending into mid-Grigson tenure.   They are also EXPENSIVE positions.  Positional value matters.  While individual picks like Kelly and Nelson are great, and throw in a FS in between, back to back to back first round picks that repeatedly ignore positional value is going to leave a team short in the expensive positions down the road.  With TY slowing, we are there now. And we still need an expensive LT soon.    Having all-pro players is always nice, but investing capital in all pro players in low-ish value positions makes it more difficult to find enough capital to accumulate higher value positions.  And now we need our 4th round QB to probably play above his draft position to avoid having to draft another QB high.   I think Ballard got a win with Buckner, and got good value with getting a 3 down RB (my projection) in Taylor and a competent #2 WR (my projection) in Pittman.  But he's going to have to allocate first round drat picks for a #1WR, a LT ,and a threatening DE over the next three years to make up for the Colts investing multiple first round picks in low value positions a few years ago.   And yes, the first 2 or 3 years Vontae Davis was here he basically played man and shut down the other teams #1WR.  That was a big deal that is missed very much.
    • Peyton has as many as Shula and Polian has one less in terms of wins and appearances in the Super Bowl.  You might not think they are football geniuses but you would be in the very small minority of those that don’t.
