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.

    • It's not even about his production. After he got back from his injury his production has actually been fine. I'm not one of those who wants ungodly numbers from him to think he's showing promise. But I do want to see him beat his man off the release on he outside. I do want him to win some contested balls and show body control and good hands. My problem with him right now is that ... he just... doesn't win his reps really. He needs his man to get stuck in traffic or for a defensive breakdown to happen in order to make stuff happen. Just an example - look at what Claypool is doing. Look at what Ceedee Lamb is doing...   I couldn't care less if he ends the year with 400 yards and 2TDs... It's not what this is about... it's about me wanting to see some flashes of what he could become with development. So yeah, sure... I absolutely agree with you that it's still early in his career and there is time for him to get better and develop, but we still can watch what he's doing now and where he's struggling and evaluate that. IMO he's struggling with pretty much every single aspect of playing X-receiver. Which is why Reich started using him a ton in the slot after his injury.      This is not a coincidence. The jump in production coicides perfectly with Reich moving him inside to the slot and scheming things for him.   
    • Rattle on about your interpretation about what's going on, rather than your knowledge of it.     Why are babbling about something irrelevant, like hindsight?   There was no looking back. There is no hindsight. The trade up for Lewis was criticized immediately when it happened.  My thought yesterday merely triggered a 2.5 year old memory.  It wasn't a new thought based on hindsight.   If you don't know that, you're not qualified to comment about the situation or about me.   Let it go, because you've revealed you ignorance on the matter.   And it was a one sentence comment at the end of a five sentence paragraph.  It was a side comment.  It wasn't a deal until you made it one.   Do us a favor.  Smarten up, or get out.     
    • I think strong side DE plays more snaps for us than weak side DE with more run stopping responsibilities like Sheard and Houston. I am not sure if that is a systematic conscious approach or something that happened by chance. In other words, they want a few jacks who do only 1 trade on a rotational basis instead of 1 jack that does several trades for the weak side DE position. However the hit percentage seems to be low so far with several dart opportunities at the draft board.   That approach only works if those jacks do jack but if they don't do jack, who the jack is won't matter.  
    • The plant-toe should primarily affect his ability to throw deep.  I don't see how it changes anything about the offensive game plan.
    • First, I should say you're seeing dramatically more than I am.    I've only seen a few games, and then hi-lites from most of the others.   Second, I should say what I often say with you.   That I admire your view and your judgement highly.   Always have.    All that said...    I think you're making far too much out of far too little.    I think expectations for all our rookies are outsized based on who they were....   but without the benefit of a normal off-season,  and without 4 pre-season games,  and then all the games Pittman lost due to injury,  I think expectations remain unrealistically too high.   Same with Taylor and others.   I'd cut Pittman lots of slack and not worry too much about what we're seeing until roughly a year from now.   Seriously.   I still think of Pittman's future as incredibly bright.    But maybe that's just me?
