An ugly win is better than a pretty loss. 

Regardless of the result, this has been an awful game of football.

The warning signs with Vinny have been evident for quite some time.

 

Yes, I’m ecstatic that he hit the game-winner.  But let’s not forget why it had to be a game-winner.

 

We shouldn’t have to be holding our breath on PATs.  But we are.  And anybody who says this is a recent thing hasn’t been paying attention.  He just seems to be making iffy contact too often....and that was the case most of last year, too.

I can’t argue with any  of this. Vinny isn’t better right now than a rookie off the street. His kicks scare the bejesus out of me. Again, first ballot HOF guy, love his leadership qualities, love everything this guy has done for us since we’ve got him in FA. If we cut him tomorrow, I’ll be supportive of the move even if the new guy is t any better than Vinny. I’ll also understand why you just don’t cut him to cut him and replace with anyone that’s a question mark and that’s what is generally left to pick from currently. I wished Vinny would have went out last season at the end instead of trying to prove something else. It’s all in Ballard and Franks hands right now. If Irsay stops a change then that’s something else (we will never know that side though).

if you didnt know the score and read this thread you would think the colts lost and are 0-7

 

I think it’s to be expected that people would be concerned about how poorly we played today.  It’s not a 1 game season.

 

If this had the Super Bowl, and all that mattered was whether we won or lost, I suspect there wouldn’t be too much criticism.  But we’ve got a long way to go...and the way we played today isn’t going to get it done against better competition.

    • OK.....   Found it.   There's a section, roughly 11:30 minutes long.   It runs from approx 35:00 to approx 46:30.   Kevin almost downplays that he he has sources,  says he's heard talk,  but he makes a very strong and compelling case where he connects the dots.     And the dots seem to connect.   Dodds interviews for the Detroit job.   Somewhere in that talk,  the Lions likely share that Stafford wants to move on.  And the Lions will look to trade him.    That there's no way that Rivers would retire after talking up wanting to come back,  after recently moving his family to Indy, and his kids have been enrolled in exclusive schools in the area,  and then turn around and suddenly hang 'em up.    That Indy wanted to treat Rivers with respect and likely said to him that he can handle his retirement any way he wants,  and the colts will support that.    Kevin says Indy fans should feel good if this is true,  because to him it signals that Indy and Ballard have a plan.   He also turns around and says if the trade for Stafford doesn't work out,  then he hopes they can trade up and draft their QB of the future.   That things will get difficult for the Colts if the Stafford deal doesn't happen,  the Colts situation suddenly looks much more difficult.   Kevin clearly says this is his interpretation of the events.   I think he makes a strong argument.   But he does not cite sources.  He didn't get an inside tip.   But this is how he thinks the scenario played out.   Go listen to the passage.   See what you think.  
    • Cowboys have ~13m in cap space going into the 2021 offseason.  Most FAs are not worthy to resign it appears except for Jourdan Lewis and S Xavier Woods.  If the Cowboys tag Dak they will be immediately in the red.  So where is this extra cap space coming from to resign or tag Dak?    Logical the Boys are at the point where they must decide to cut young starting LG Connor Wiliams save ~1.8m against the cap.  Seems also need to cut K Greg Zuerlein and add another 1.5m savings.  Randy Gregory would be an easy cut as well saving another 1.2m.  Now we are talking about ~18.3 in available cap space.  Can keep cutting players like TE Dalton Shultz boost cap by another 1.5m.  Punter Chris Jones would be another likely candidate imo to get cut and save another 1.4m and now were only at 21.2m in savings.  That’s the bulk of their team from where I can see them gaining capital back.  One other player is WR Michael Gallup that could save them 1.7m but can realistically see used as trade bait to gain extra draft picks.  Bottom line is I cannot see the Cowboys resigning or even attempting to franchise tag Prescott and have no choice but to draft a low cost young QB replacement in the draft with their first pick.  Don't be surprised to see Dallas move up on Day 1 and trade Gallup for the lost draft capital to help offset.   Welcome Dak to the Colts and let’s go digest the rest of offseason.  When the Rams signed QB Goff to an average of $33.5 million per year Prescott reportedly was seeking a new deal in the $34 million per year range.  I didn’t add salary incentives this year just base salary due to cap reductions this year but added $10 million bonus each next 3 years and increased pay scale from 35, 36, 38, 40 million next few years.   64.887m cap space 2021 * updated OTC as of 01/27   Retired Rivers AC   Cut Skia Moore – 850k   FA Signings QB Dak Prescott - 35m increasing 40m next 4 years LT Roderick Johnson 2m/yr.  PFF stated he played 245 OL snaps only allowing 3 penalties and 1 sacks last season.  Would be a solid acquisition even coming from the Texans. RDE Dawuane Smoot 5m/4yr.  A little faster than Muhammad should be good in-house competition LCB Ahkello Witherspoon 3m/3yrs – Real deal CB imo get this guy signed ASAP even if means deselecting another   Colts FA’s lost Autry Hooker Clark – wanted to retire Walker JR Mack Wilson STP Houston Green Brissett Hilton   Unrestricted Free Agents: Carrie STP 1 / 1.5m – solid back  Hunt 2 /950k   Burton 1 / 3m – played 33% of snaps Stallworth - 1 / 750 k * updated colts already extended Dulin 2 / 1m STP *update Colts already extended Rhodes –played 87% snaps on a 1.5m contract resign 3m/year deal Muhammad (starter) – 4 / 3m first year Odum resign less than RFA 1m   Restricted Free Agents:  MAC UDFA – 2nd Round Tender 3.422m Pascal RFA 2nd Round tender 3.422m Smith ERFA 1 / 850 k STP   OTC says 74 players under contract and OTC Cap Room projected 9.322m for 2021   Draft Needs: LT, WR, LDE, SS, RB   Draft:   R1 LT Christian Darrisaw (Virginia Tech) – Long shot but my dream selection here and pending Combine could see him move higher in RD 1   R2 WR Nico Collins (Michigan) - 2019 led Big 10 receivers 0.0% drop rate and 81.3% contested catch rate and had the highest broken-tackle rate   R3 Edge/LB Charles Snowden (Virginia) - Snowden stands 6-foot-7. SAM linebacker blitzing / played both ends or more of a 3-4 OLB.  Great football awareness very solid in run support.  2018 breakout star along with Rock Ya.  With his size and speed like to switch him to 4-3 Edge.   R4 ILB Garret Wallow (TCU) Extremely athletic with impressive sideline-to-sideline speed and can lineup in the box, cover the slot and has a good grasp of where he should be in zone defense.   R5 SS Divine Deablo (Virginia Tech) - has elite size and excellent speed.  Very strong player/good tackler.  Bit tight in his hips limit his range but we need a decent backup and he should do fine.   R6 RB Devin Wynn (Furman) – Decent ground game.  Rarely used in pass plays.   R7 WR Emeka Emezie (NC St) - Z position size and speed to separate.  Willing blocker in Run game.  Impressive hands in contested engagements.  Impressive layout diving catch vs Virginia 6:13 3Q.  Originally struggled with dropped passes but cleaned that up this year.   UDFA MLB Blake Gallagher (Northwestern) – Bit on the small side 6’0” but one heck of a tackler in the open field.  All-Big 10 honors in 2018 after a campaign that saw him tally 127 stops (7.5 for a loss) and an interception.  Wisconsin game had a good QB strip for turnover.  Good chase angles and hustle down field.  Tip ball caused team INT.  Impressing blitz sack.  Looks good in both run, blitz and coverage support.   Overall a solid group to build upon.  For 2022 can see our focus on TEs, RCB and potentially LDE if we move Snowden to SLB.  Shall see how well Wallow does his rookie season before adjusting.  We got a young QB for long-term.   The Colts should be playoff contenders for many years.   3WR 1TE   QB Dak Prescott Jacob Eason   RB Jonathan Taylor Nyheim Hines Jordan Wilkins Devin Wynn   WR Nico Collins Emeka Emezie Ashton Dulin Gary Jennins   WR Michael Pittman Jr. Dezmon Patmon Quartney Davis   WR Zach Pascal Parris Campbell DeMichael Harris   TE Jack Doyle Trey Burton Mo Alie-Cox Noah Togiai   LT Christian Darrisaw Roderick Johnson   LG Quenton Nelson Joey Hunt   C Ryan Kelly Danny Pinter   RG Mark Glowinski Jake Eldrenkamp   RT Branden Smith Will Holden   Base 4-3 D   LDE Charles Snowden Ben Banogu Kemoko Turay   LDT DeForest Buckner Tyquan Lewis   RDT Grover Stewart Taylor Stallworth   RDE Al-Quadin Muhammad Dawuane Smoot Kemoko Turay   WLB Darius Leonard Matthew Adams   MLB Garret Wallow Zaire Franklin Jordan Glasgow   SLB Bobby Okereke E.J.

    • 36-minute mark.   His sources are solid.  I know that for a fact.
    • I'm over 20 minutes in and barely a word about Rivers.   Not even a tease that Bowen has inside info about how and why Rivers resigned so soon.     Nothing.   Sigh......   Ughhhh.....  
    • OK, well I  hope Ballard considers my own favorite: Johnny Football! He could create multiple different directions.
