Yeah regarding AI, he definitely belongs on the list of top 40 and we have had thousands of players. I have him top 40, JMO. I haven't done a list in a long time lmao . Oh yeah, taking Edge instead of Williams and taking Peyton over Leaf was huge for this franchise. Had we took Leaf, our team would probably be in London :funny:

 

Bwahahahahahahahaha... There would have been posters at the time saying- Kiper Jr should be GM. Polian doesn't care anymore! I don't care then either whaaaaa! We took the doopey guy from TEN over Leaf?!?! Leafs got SWAG!!! He's a future HOF!!!

 

Lol- I made myself laugh typing that lol

 

To be fair tho, as much as I love Edge... I would have been cool with Ricky...

 

If dude was that good high... The weed wasn't a performance enhancer for him (I know science and know it tech was lol)... It kept him cool to not do opposing defenses worse lol. If the NFL would have just let the man enjoy a joint!

Probably not. I am excited to get all our WR back for DEC and see what might of been. It will be to late by that time though. But maybe we can look forward to the future if they play well in DEC.

Never count out the Texans yearly end of season collapse . Alot of football yet to be played .

I also have no confidence in Reich right now. I don’t trust him. Then the fact they are letting Vinny continue to tarnish his legacy just ticks me off. They don’t seem to care so why should I.

 

They brought several kickers in to workout.  There is a reason none of those guys are on another NFL team right now.  I doubt any of them are much better than Vinny (if at all).  

 

Additionally, Reich has emphasized that Vinny is a team captain and a leader of this team (Ballard emphasized that this off season when he decided to bring Vinny back).  

 

I'd be a little concerned about them not caring if they didn't bring in a group of other kickers to workout.  However, as I said, there is a reason that group is currently unemployed by the NFL.  

 

Not sure what you're not trusting about Reich.  We lost our franchise QB to retirement very close to the start of the season.  We have had a boatload of injuries to key players.  We're still 5-4 and very much in contention for the division title, and it looks like we'll be getting several of our injured players back in the very near future.

I was even 50/50 on Peyton and Leaf during that draft. I was like Peyton is kind of dopey and isn't athletic at all. Leaf had a stronger arm and could actually run well. I had a friend ask me who I would take at that time and I said Peyton, the only reason why was he came from a football family haha . I liked his dad and figured Peyton was a smart player.

I love the moving of the goal posts... pun intended... lol

 

early in week- trolls in mass saying colts for sure going for a top 5 pick

reaction by many posters- ur clearly a troll and no one cares what u have to say

at this point in week- theyre tanking for a top 15!!!!

 

ytf would they tank for the 14th pick?

 

these same trolls had been arguing since Swagmatic got demoted to the PS that the colts were in the mid round purgatory with JB...

 

now we're tanking FOR that purgatory?

 

bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahashahahahahahahah.... not laughing at the stupidity... actually... yes i am

 

A fan for 35 years... Just my opinion. I honestly think AV is a detriment and it's hard to make the playoffs with a kicker that leaves points on the field.

Just trying to rationalize why Ballard is rolling with Vinateri. Can you tell me? 

BTW a 14th or 15th pick has more move up potential than a pick that is 22-28! Purgatory is better than Hell dawg!

Want the best for the SHOE always:thmup:

I respect you, and that, fully. To answer your question, no I cannot. 

 

And as a factual statement, again yes, I agree that 14 > 28th pick. No argument there.

 

We all want the same things brother ;)

Browns are helping the colts. They are up 14-0 over the Steelers. Hopefully they don’t implode. I can see why Hoyer threw all over the Steelers. There secondary outside of Fitzpatrick is not very good. Makes curious is maybe Jacoby would of ended up with a big day passing on them. Steelers only have 6 offensive TD all year. Yeah we beat them easily without that INT.

Jiminy Christmas, you're a yo-yo of emotional overreaction.

 

In a previous post, you said you're "done" with this team.  Yet here you are, still posting, still getting ready to watch the next game, and every game after that.

 

You're obviously not "done", and you obviously "care", so please take a deep breath and reconsider posting this kind of nonsense.

I've been saying all year how bad the steelers are glad some of you are noticing.

 But I still don't think we can make the playoffs that loss to the dolphins really hurt our chances. Quite frankly though, every game left on our schedule is very winnable because of our defense.

It makes me sick. If that INT wouldn’t of happen they would of given up. Now they lost JU JU and Conner for the game.

Yep but still good enough to beat us.

They didn’t beat us. We beat ourselves with all the turnovers.

We are still behind the raiders and the bills if we need a wildcard. Even if the Steelers lose. Both of them play cupcakes this weekend.

As long as we don't have to rely on a field goal, or p.a.t. we should be fine  :banana:

Looking at the schedules of Pitt, Buff, Oakland, Sd, Jax, Tenn (main competing teams for wc), i think we can afford to lose no more than 2 games.  

 At 10-6, i think we make wild card, at 9-7, we just miss out.

  Of course, it would be nicer to just take division.

This is my hot take. I think Oakland can win the division putting KC in a wildcard race. KC still has to play NE. Raiders had a 10-0 lead on KC and held them scoreless in three quarters. They still have a game with KC. They have the exact formula to beat them. They have a big oline and can run the ball. Carr uses short passes. They can control the clock.

What makes this team so infuriating is almost wary loss has been because of mistakes. I will give them the Oakland loss because they just out played us. The losses have not even been a talent issue. We have gifted teams wins.

The fact that the Colts beat themselves let’s us know that they are a mediocre team that plays to the level of their opponent.  Good teams do not usually beat themselves like that nor do they play down to inferior competition.  Thus Colts likely will not be a playoff team in my opinion or if they manage to sneak in...won’t get very far.

It tells me they are still a very young team.

Too many let downs. Too many injuries. Miami loss. Lack of game breaking offense even when healthy. Bad 3rd down defense. Bad kicking game. O-Line 180. 
 

Too much to overcome 

cost us 2 and one could argue 3 games....likely going to cost us the playoffs if it hasn't already.

The approach by Ballard to acquire multiple picks in the draft thru trading down is costing the team time to develop these players as oppose to drafting blue chippers right off the gate so they can start immediately. 

To be fair unless we trade up we aren’t getting a blue chipper at 32. So it makes sense with where we are drafting. We got the same guy by trading down we would of took in the first.

It tells me the franchise qb walked out preseason. 

 

This young team could easily be 8-1 or even 9-0 with #12 under center. That's legit it. We went from a franchise qb that was mvp caliber last season to his backup and we have still competed in every single game. This team is talented across the board. We just took a step back with the most important position... and we can't kick a fieldgoal.

    • Having eavesdropped into your conversation with NCF, I agree with you, but I think you stated it a bit dramatically by saying that he said the QB position is not the most important.  Let me try to clean that up.   I think at that presser, he was laying out a philosophy that said that he is going to build the team differently than maybe what we've had the past 20 years, where the team was built around the skills of one guy PM then Luck.  He was explaining to the fans the difference between what the fans would see going forward and what they have seen in the past.   I strongly believed that he meant that.  That you can win by building a complete team around QBs like Tannehill, Wentz, maybe Foles (who is still posting a winning record at CHI despite the consistent criticism) and your salary cap and roster won't be hamstrung by one guy.....so your team doesn't fall apart when that one guy has a freak neck injury (or decides to quit mid contract).   Supported by the observation that Ballard was not as choked up by Luck leaving...at least not seemingly as eager to see him come back as Irsay and some fans....so that tends to corroborate the notion that he truly believes that a winning football team is not about one guy...which....would be the QB.   But I'm sure if he ranked the most important positions on a football team, he would list QB #1.
    • Colts WR with Johnny U https://www.foxnews.com/sports/jimmy-orr-super-bowl-colts-dies
    • I feel Ballard has done a great job building this team's trenches. Now it's time to spend more capital on skill positions.  WR has been a sore spot on this team for way too long (since Reggie) but Ballard can't control all the injuries. DE has also been pretty bad (outside of Houston). He needs to figure that out quick.    Luck quitting out of nowhere really screwed this team, and even though I don't care for who he replaced that void with, Ballard put his head down and dealt with it. I also was not a fan of giving Brisket that much money, but hey I'm not the GM.    Or when you hire a head coach and they also quit on you at the last minute, he handled that like a champ as well.       
    • In today’s NFL, it’s almost impossible to be a championship caliber team without a top 10 QB.  Of course it’s not the only position that matters.  They all matter.  But, better or worse, the game has become so much about the ability to move the ball in large chunks.  And not all QBs can make that happen as well as the game requires.   And getting a QB of that caliber is hard.  And I would argue that it even involves some measure of good luck - like a 6th round pick out of Michigan ending up with 6 rings...or a guy like Mahomes falling to where he did in the draft.   Even getting one of the top picks while needing a QB is far from a guarantee.   Every team that doesn’t already have one of them is trying to do the same thing.  And some high percentage of the top prospects don’t ever make it into that echelon.
    • but can he win a SB with 2 different teams
