The scary truth of the colts future

Recommended Posts

Most of the post here is anti JB's performance, I included.  So, there must be some truth to this if they see what I see in terms of JB's play making abilities downfield which is non-existent majority of the times.  So, the truth is out there to recruit, lobby for a new signal caller...We can't simply win with JB and the play calling on Reich...

The future is bright. If we draft a new QB and they sit a year we will be fine if ballard picks the right guy. Mahomes won MVP his first year starting. Lamar is 22 and on his way to a MVP in his  full  year starting. As long as Ballard doesn’t pick the wrong guy we will be just fine. I am more worried about losing Eberflus very soon.

I dont think colts wins enter into his victim selection much. 

 

If you can avoid being a horny teenage d@#chebag (possibly experimenting with grass) while at a rundown summercamp consisting solely of other horny teenage d-bags experimenting with grass, I think you'll be ok.......

I wouldn’t go out of my way to be on his list.

Although to be fair, have you seen some of those girls at those summer camps? If not for the threat of a machete to my head, I might bite lol

I don’t think we’re really in that bad of a shape. Outside of QB and WR, when healthy we have a very good roster. Plus, Lamar looked like crap his first year. I and many people thought all he could do was run, but man he’s proven me wrong. At the end of the day, we can only sit back and watch, so my plan is to continue to do that.

Before I get into this let me say I’m a big fan of Ballard and Reich, none of this will be bashing what they’ve done.

 

Now here’s the scary truth. It may take a few years before they realize Brissett isn't the answer at QB, but there will be better days ahead for sure, just going take a little longer than we want to admit.

The Colts struggled with a horrible OL. Finally got it right then #12 bowed out. So when the OL personnel get new contracts they will be highly paid people protecting ...who? All that icing but no cake. This will be the biggest test for the GM.

Nonsense this team is good ,the quarterback position is going to tell the story .

It all starts with the QB. This QB is the definition of mediocre. I said it since the very beginning of the season. Game manager QB. Look at our record. The definition of mediocre. Time for the Colts brass to make some big decisions soon. The future is not Brissett.

I respectfully disagree. The final part of the cake is the icing, which in this case, would be a good QB.

I see the team entirely different.

 

Safety - solid with young depth

CB - solid with young depth

LB - solid with young depth

DE - solid (but aging) with young depth, could use a young "Sheard like" player.

DT - need upgrade and depth

 

OLine - strong with some depth (Haeg & Andrews). Upgrade RG, or sign/draft RT and slide Smith over to RG. Glowinski as depth is fine.

TE - could use an upgrade.

WR - This is a tough one. Our #1,#2,#3 have missed a ton of games. Add in Fountain, and 4 of our projected 6 WR's have either missed all, most, or a good part of the season.

RB's - we are solid with depth

QB - After 11 weeks, my opinion is JB is not the long term answer, but I'm not qualified to make that statement definitively.  However,  I am sure that Ballard and Reich already know this answer.

 

P - Good enough

K - need upgrade

 

Agreed! I think our offense is our biggest concern right now. They struggled to produce outside the rushing attack. The defense kept us in most games all year. Get the defense a couple more spots and focus  mostly on offense in the draft is my hope. Not at all sure what to do about QB though.

Picking the right guy, not like that’s easy to do. Manning and luck fell into our laps. Ballard will be tasked with a much tougher road. Will be picking in the mid teens this year and we all know how much Ballard treasures those so called swings. He’ll be in a dilemma this offseason or next rather to trade some picks to move up and select a QB or stay put and hope you hit on your second or third guy.

We might not have  to trade  up for a QB.

It will be interesting if we can keep Sheard with the offense having to have a major overhaul. Eberflus might be gone too.

I think you are wrong about future. We are 6-5 with missing FGs, and missing QB for 2 game, and WR missing a lot of games, and TE who is #1 in drops. We have the most cash available to spend in the FA, and good drafts don't forget WASHINGTON Rd 2. Based on CB draft track record, I am happy where we are given the situation where we could be with out QB retiring in preseason. 

I some what agree, Fact is every team in the league face or have faced the exact same thing you said every season. So to me,thats not really the difference maker. What I do  believe what you said is we have a ton of cap space and the colts need to use it now, not in the next 5 years. Older fans like myself are dying every year and can not wait 5 years or longer. Get it done today,not tomorrow.I've a colts fan for 56 years now since I've been 8 years old and 2 only rings in all that time is totally unacceptable,for any team. Esp. considering we have Manning for what 13 of those years and only 1 ring. That really stinks.

Substaining an offensive  drive would as the defense  would be fresh. Not to mention  the defense  would play harder if the offense  was actually  pulling  its  weight.

I said this when Luck retired, his retirement will put us in QB limbo for the next decade. Won’t be good enough to compete and won’t be bad enough to draft a top prospect. Our only hope is to get a sleeper in the first round.

That's why I'm in favor of waiting on a QB this year. I'm not in love with this class outside of Burrow and I really dont get the Love hype. 

 

This is the year I'd spend some money in FA. Go after some young skill players that can help now. Amari Cooper, Hunter Henry, Austin Hooper, Derrick Henry (unlikely), Kenyan Drake (or DJ depending on what AZ does), Eckler or Gordon. 

 

Then continue to build the team through the draft and go all in for Lawrence or Fields in 2021.

I hope you're right.

I believe Reich leaves him out there to lose the next 2 games. Top 10 draft pick will be available.

 

Oh well. Been a rough season (including pre-season)

I think we should look at drafting Tua--we're currently at pick 14, and adding our 2nd rd pick would get us well into the top 10

The scarier thing about our season and future is the complete free fall weve been in for 2 months now with no sign of stopping. 6-8 wouldn't feel so bad all things considered if we weren't teased with the thought of being a good football team early in the year. Boy how things can change in a hurry in the NFL.

Reich's quote during the game last night that Brissett is my guy and we won't be drafting a Qb was a totally depressing thing to hear. Blind allegiance from him and Ballard will get them both fired eventually. Brissett may be a good company man, fine in the locker room, etc but it is what you do on the field that produces wins. How long before scatter gun, innacurate throws from Brissett turn the wrs against him? Or the defense is mad about always being on the field or we arent scoring points so they almost have to pitch a shutout? Or players start to question so called leadership for not replacing Vinatieri or the way that Ebron quit on the Colts?

Yes because they are under the same regime for 6+ years which we just started last year. Turning around a franchise takes time.

    • Very glad to see how much influence Mathis has had on Turay.  It's always cool to see an ex-Colt great contributing and helping out our young talent.  Seems as though Reggie helps a bit, but I don't recall anyone like Mathis who remained so involved with the horseshoe and helping develop young talent so much.   Also, very cool to hear how appreciative Turay is of Mathis.  He seems like a good dude.
    • Part of what makes a player great over his career is longevity.  The rule of thumb I have always heard for HOF selection is 'a decade of dominance.'  Unless you really change the game, you have to have ~a decade of being an elite player to get in (an exception may be a guy like Megatron, because his combo of size, speed, power, hands, etc. in some ways revolutionized the game of football).   Leonard is certainly off to a good start.. and by a stats comparison, a better start than Lewis.  Lewis was not an all-pro (first or second team) as a rookie.  He was 2nd team in his 2nd and 3rd years, and again in 2010.  He was first team 7 times.   Leonard was a first team all pro as a rookie, which is very rare.  He was 2nd team in year 2, a year in which he missed 3+ games.  Leonard was the defensive rookie of the year (Simeon Rice got that award when Lewis was a rookie).  At the same points in their careers, Leonard has proven to be better at causing turnovers (his INT numbers are outstanding for a LBer)... but, he also plays in a different scheme and a different position (most of the time), so that's hard to really judge.   Lewis was a 2x NFL Defensive Player of the Year.  Leonard has not done that yet.  I don't doubt that he's capable of it, but he hasn't.  Lewis was a 2x Superbowl Champion and a 1x SB MVP, both things which Leonard hasn't accomplished.  Lewis was a 13x pro-bowler.. like Leonard, he missed out his rookie year.  Lewis is also on the 2000's all-decade team as the best at his position during that decade.   In terms of off-field stuff, Leonard seems to have less baggage than Lewis did at a young age.  That said, Lewis did seem to clean up his act after that alleged murder incident.  He also seems to be a pretty solid guy now and has several charities and does a lot for young minority communities.     In terms of on-field leadership, Lewis was outstanding.  I don't know how long that took, as I don't follow Baltimore as intensely as I do Indy (i.e., was he a captain in his second year and a tremendous leader of men as a rookie? I don't know).  Leonard, was named team captain in his 2nd year, and he was a leader right out of the gates.  From all interviews and things I've read, his coaches and teammates view him as the leader of the Indy D and seemingly have after just a few games as a rookie -- that's rare.   In short, Leonard is off to a heckuva start to his career.... but, let's hold off on comparing him to a first-ballot HOFer.  If he keeps it up for another 8-12 years, this thread deserves to be revisited.  
    • I am not calling Barkley a choker because when he went to  Philly they were not the same team that had won the finale in 1983. When he played for Phoenix they were a 50% team. His last 4 years with Houston he only stated 152 games in four years due to injury. He averaged 22.1 pts and 11.7 rebounds in his career. In the playoffs he averaged 23 pts and 12.9 rebounds.  He was the rebound leader in 1987 at 6'5".  He was the MVP in 1993. He also was the team leader for both Gold Medals in the Olympics in 1992 and 1996.  Sorry IMO those are not choker numbers. 
    • I find it very unlikely a team signs Kelly off our practice squad. If we want to run 3 QBs and keep Kelly on the PS we probably can.
    • That's right.  We are a still a pretty young team so most of our guys will be better than last season. All of us have to be excited to have Buckner on this roster. He should make all of our D backs have better grades. The addition of Taylor makes us very dangerous on the ground as well.  Stay positive my friend.
