Hoping for finally some good Colts news this offseason

Recommended Posts

I think we can all agree the 2019 season was a season of bad Luck and bad news. Luck retiring obviously, the continuous injuries issues especially to the pass catchers, and now the abrupt rumors of a possible Anthony Costanzo retirement.

 

I would hope those bad fortunes will turn around this offseason into the 2020 season. That being said, we need Costanzo to make up his mind before the combine, so Colts front office, coaches, and scouts can plan accordingly for their LT position going forward. I do wonder why he is taking so long to make his decision. Losing him would be devastating for this team and would further my belief that this team has had to overcome more than the average NFL team. I hate the cards Ballard has been dealt.

 You have no respect for Castonzo. After all these years you still can't spell his name.
 Trade? LMAO!

I must have missed something. What trade rumors?

I mis-typed. I meant retirement.

I can see AC waiting on his decision to see what Ballard does at the QB position and FA.  He might not want to risk getting a major injury at the end of his career unless he feels we are SB contenders.  Ballard can always franchise tag him until he makes up his mind.

Apparently Costonzo would play in front of any QB not named Brissett.

Good luck with that.

(The good news part)

 

I really would like to come up with another word for the “L” word.  At least for a while.

I'm waiting for Jordan Love to get picked here so the headlines write themselves "Out of Luck Colts Find New Love". Not saying I want him, just that the headlines will be golden

The NFL is a business, AC does not owe this organization anything. I am ok with him waiting to make his decision, after all it is his career and likelihood here at stake.

the team needs to know by the time free agency starts, if he pulls a luck and retires at the last minute that will screw us over

 

cant  just go into the season starting a backup caliber player at one of the most important positions on the team again sigh

What the Team needs and what’s actually going to happen is completely up to AC.

I doubt AC waits until the end of camp to retire.  He saw what happened with the late retirement of AL and how it affected the team.  He'll make up his mind in due time, but I expect it to happen before the draft.

Not true they can tell him they need to know by a date or assume he's gone

That means nothing, they can tell him anything they want. He’s an impending FA anyways,  if they assume he’s gone that doesn’t impact him in anyway.

    • I kind of hope we go 2 WR's with our 2nd rounders. Ideally one size guy and one speed guy. Mims, Pittman, Claypool. Then Hamler, Reagor, Aiyuk.   Hamler doesn't get alot of talk on here, but when I watch his tape I see alot of TY Hilton in him. Who better to learn from then TY himself.
    • As deep as the wide receiver class is, I'd take Kmet with the 34th (he will not be there at 44) and draft Eason with the 44th. A reciever nobody is talking about that's being slept on is Q. Cephus out of Wisconsin. That's just my wishful thinking/opinion.
    • I agree about RB situation too. Run run run. I like Denzel mims too !
    • My preference for 34, in no order   deandre swift josh jones jalen reagor    imo WR will be addressed with the 44th pick. Deep class their will be a good one there   I’m all on the draft a wr early wagon but this oline class is deep. Not many times you can get a high end offensive tackle in the 2nd round. Also a RB is truly needed. Someone that can give mack a breather, while not much drop off. Swift is a top 20 prospect on many boards. He’d be great value at 34. 
    • What I don’t understand is why, before the combine, a lot of scouts were saying he has late-1st round talent, but his speed was a knock on him pushing him down a lot. Then he came in and dominated the combine, proving them wrong, and people still say “No, he isn’t a 1st round caliber player”. Makes no sense to me!
