*Must-watch* video of Ebron discussing the Colts' locker room chemistry

Recommended Posts

What struck me about this video is, the environment Ebron is describing is exactly what Ballard has been preaching about since he arrived in Indianapolis.

 

Would we all like more blowouts against inferior competition?  Yes.  Blowing out bad teams is oftentimes a strong indicator of championship-caliber teams.  Football Outsiders has an in-depth piece on this very topic.

 

That said, locker room camaraderie is an intangible that cannot be adequately measured.  Anybody that has played competitive sports at a high level knows how invaluable chemistry is.  When you don't want to let your teammates down, when you hold each other accountable, you play a lot harder for those guys than you would guys you cannot stand.

That is great. That is the difference between having a 5-2 record like the colts and a 3-4 record like the Steelers. Teams are very even but colts find a way to win.

What an excellent locker room Ballard and Reich have assembled in a short period of time. I'm pretty sure the staff is building chemistry, 

toughness and depth with alot of young guys getting a ton of reps and

a bit of vanilla play calling.

 

Ballard and and Reich are building a tough minded, slog in the mud

and overall tough team to beat and will pay dividends as the season

wears on.

IIRC, that article was pre-injury edge and he said football was nothing physically to him.  in fact he liked to play pickup bball after games on sundays because he had so much left.  I loved it!

    • Jones is who I want...even if it's a franchise and trade.   As for DEs...I would look at Clowney. Would step right in and replace Sheard.
    • I think most want a QB who doesn't have to carry the team just to be competitive.    Reich had both the scrambler, Wentz, and the statue, Foles, and won with both.  Don't get fooled into adopting the scrambling trendiness as being something essential.   Its merely about how long a QB holds the ball to allow something to develop.  Some leave the pocket. Others stay there until the last second.  Running to one side of the field normally cuts your vision of the field in half, limiting the options.  We have the pocket to give any QB time to stand there and extend the play.  Most teams don't.   I'm intrigued by Eason.  I like his height.  Its tough to substitute that.  Obviously Herbert too.
    • To me as far as accomplishments are concerned, the trifecta would be winning Rookie of the Year, winning League MVP, and being on a team where you were a main cog/reason for a winning a WS (got that ring). Kris Bryant has done all 3 already. He could retire tomorrow and be considered in the great category. Of course not HOFame material because he doesn't have the numbers yet, still a young player.
    • Kinlaw’s train is already moving fast.    But billing him that he’s going to be better than Aaron Donald is just flat out silly.   If he wasn’t hurt so much lately you’d have compared him to JJ Watt.   And that would’ve been just as silly.   Kinlaw is likely going to be a very good player.  Likely gone when we pick.  But if he’s there,  odds are high we’d take him.   And he’ll likely be very, very good.  But we don’t have to deal in hyperbole to build him to crazy levels.      Remember....    it’s a long draft season.  Pace yourself.   Please.
