I'm going to defend Chris Ballard here. Looking at the free agent wide receivers list for 2019 there is only one having a solid season John Brown. Funchess was a gamble that hasn't worked out. I'm not going to bash Ballard for taking a gamble on Funchess. When you sign a free agent either it works out or it doesn't. 

 

I would seriously take a look at signing Robby Anderson or Nelson Agholor this offseason. Amari Cooper is likely to get tagged and AJ Green is 33 hasn't seen the field this season. There is also the possibility of bringing back Funchess.

I don't see how Ballard can afford not to be more aggressive in the WR market next off season, instead of looking for hard bargains 

I think it's time to shut it down this season is over.  Too many injuries and adversity this year.  I will keep cheering each week but we would be better off with higher draft picks next year.

You don’t shut it down until you’re officially out of the race. You keep fighting until someone stops you from fighting. We’re still in this, with or without TY

I wouldn’t say DF didn’t work out. Injuries give him a pass. They might even decide to bring him back. 

 

Bottom line this offense is going to have to be totally rebuilt next season. Right now outside of TY pascal and Campbell are the only two who should be brought back. The other 3 spots are wide open.

I don't think Ballard deserves criticism at all.

 

He knows the receiver corps isn't NFL quality, even when we had Luck at QB.  Its the main reason why he added DF and PC in the offseason, and Ebron before that.  None of those additions have had much chance to play, and Ebron blew some chances.

 

It looks like we'll be adding TE to the round 1 or 2 draft pick discussion.

We can't catch a break, might as well put TY on IR. 

 

 

TY had an incredible 2018 considering all the injuries he played through. Now no Andrew Luck and what appears to be another series of injuries , only more severe. 

 

As far as putting on IR , I think there's no benefit for the Colts to do what you infer. Just "end the misery " and can the season ?  Other than maybe picking a couple spots higher , this makes no sense unless they are sure he's done for 2019. 

 

That said , I understand your frustration. This has no doubt been a surreal year, I also think there's enough in the past 2 seasons to make one wonder if TY is breaking down.

He is done this team isn't going anywhere anyway besides down.

Totally rebuilt? Sounds like you gave up on our top 5 offensive line.

He just can't stay healthy, hence the post.

Yeah, I’d hope they consider bringing Funch back too. I still think he could do well here. Could probably get him on a pretty good contract, maybe.

We can still bring him back and draft another WR. That would be a pretty sweet group as long as it doesn’t end up like this year.

Idk anymore. All the injuries to key players makes this offense just too predictable and one dimensional. Hilton, Ebron and Mack all being out/done for the season just makes it even more predictable. Guys can’t get any separation in the passing game, and even when they do, it seems we’re too afraid to throw downfield. It’ll be a interesting off season.

If they lose to Tenn . there is a chance they give up on him coming back. If we win , we are said to  have a 50% chance (up from our now 30% chance) of making the playoffs. No way Colts just say "the guy can't stay healthy" and IR him.

No I wasn’t counting them in that. Although we do need to do something with the right side.

 

Looks to me like we need to replace Glowinski , add a pass rusher , draft our future QB and add a good DT. With a middle first , high second and middle second , it will be tough to add WR to that wish list. Too bad FA is so ridiculous.

WR needs to be the top one or two priorities.

Going to be tough generating a decent offense. No Campbell, Hilton, or Ebron - Yeesh 

 

Yet Rogers and many others not named TY were running wide open last week vs Houston's zone.

 

It's clear who didn't step up last week. Let's hope it's different this weekend.

Williams did fantastic last week, and we didn't skip a beat in the running game.

Ebron has had a heavily reduced role all year from the get go.

TY was ineffective and on a pitch count last week yet we had WRs and TEs running wide open all over the place. His numbers all year have regressed as has the rest of the pass catchers.

 

We can win this, but JB needs to step up and find the open guys. And there were plenty of open guys last week vs Houston's zone. TN plays zone more than Houston, and are a bad pass defense and bad blitzing team. A decent QB can pick TN apart with just Pascal, Doyle, and Hines.

WR is not hard to hit in FA. You’ll have to fork over a good amount, but we likely won’t be splurging, since Ballard never does, so we would have enough to cover a WR. Also, you can find good WR in later rounds. TY is proof of that.

For everybody panicking...

It’s the Titans.

It’s not us vs the entire world.

It’s just us vs the Titans.

Simple as that.

I remember us feeling the same way before the Chiefs game, and that one turned out ok.

And whether we win or lose, life will go on. The zombies won’t start rising if we lose.

With that said...

GO COLTS

BEAT THE TITANS

And Happy Thanksgiving

    • When I saw the Carson Wentz trade go down, and the compensation we gave up, I paid attention to the Bears more than any non-Colts team. They were in a similar situation as us team-wise, draft-pick wise (20th pick to 21st pick), and we both had interest in Wentz. After we got him, you saw the Bears were immediately helpless. Wentz was gone, no solid QBs left in FA, the Wilson trade fell through, and they had to sign Andy Dalton. That could be us.   We got Wentz for peanuts considering we are picking 21st and didn't have to give up our 1st and/or 2nd rounder this year. If Wentz gets hurt, we have a bit of insurance from losing our 1st rounder in 2022. That's the best move of 2021 so far. If you don't believe me, look at the Bears forums and how they reacted when they signed Dalton instead of trading for Wilson. They wish they were the Colts right now.

    • This is my 1st attempt at one of these so far, and I have little information right now, but I'll try and do the best I can. Hoping to crank out 3 of these by the time the draft begins on the 29th.   Round 1.) Kwity Paye, EDGE, Michigan- I realize we need a LT very badly. However, I believe Darrisaw will go before 21, and Teven Jenkins is more of a RT than a LT. That's why we choose Paye in the 1st. He is by far the best EDGE in the class to me, fits the scheme from what I've seen, and can start immediately on a team that is extremely weak at the position after missing out on re-signing Autry and possibly Houston.    Round 2.) Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame- He may or may not fall to us in the 2nd round, but there will be a OT or two that does fall, and I'll assume for the sake of this mock draft, that he's the guy who falls to us. Eichenberg is solid at everything, just not great. He reminds me of Anthony Costanzo and I think he can start right away for us at LT. This would solidify the line for a long time after we paid Braden and Quenton.   Round 4.) Monty Rice, ILB, Georgia- I haven't studied him a lot yet, but I think he'd make a very good Anthony Walker replacement in the LBer group. EJ Speed and Glasgow aren't good enough to start behind Okereke IMO or start if he goes down due to injury, so that's where Monty Rice comes in.   Round 5.) Bobby Brown, DT, Texas A&M- Excellent run defender that plays well in a 4-3 defense. Very solid scheme fit that can possibly get playing time on running downs. Only downside is he's not a 3 down player, but with Buckner and Grover starting, it really shouldn't matter.   Round 6.) Rachad Wildgoose, CB, Wisconsin- He is more of a slot corner than anything else, but he can play any scheme. Only played two games last year due to injury, but that's why he fell. Very intelligent player that has room to improve, and with Rhodes and Carrie under 1 year contracts, they'll be no pressure during his first year for him.   Round 7.) Dax Milne, WR, BYU- Dax can play in any scheme and can also play special teams. Solid route runner who can catch the ball. He's very quick and can make big plays.   Let me know what you think below!
    • Please see my post in the NFL forum regarding this lol.
    • I'll bet he gets paid. What would you like to bet?
