I'll take mine well done, extra BBQ sauce. Thanks.

I didn’t expect them to take a QB either.  Still not crazy about the one they took but I understand it and want him to work out because he’s now a Colt.  
 

overall I am happy with this draft class on paper.  Now let’s see how it pans out on the field.

Said the Colts would be taking Luton, was wrong, but I did like Eason from the beginning. 

 

I also said the Colts would take an OT high, and a CB early. Wrong on those too. 

 

Here is a nice fact on Luton, though....

 

Jake Luton on throws beyond 20+ yards

836 yards
13 TDs
0 INTs

I didn't want the Colts to take a quarterback with the 13th pick or move back up in the first round.

I think Ballard made the best choice with a guy who may or may not be our future quarterback. If he doesn't work out, we may have to try again next year or the next, but at least we didn't waste a top pick when we needed a defensive tackle and receiver much more.

I'm not surprised that he waited to later rounds to give  boy a chance at making the roster down the line . I knew he would not take a chance early. and he did not, he said that this draft he 's not looking for a Franchise QB and I don't think he still is even with this pic.

I must admit that most of you will believe that I too was completely wrong as I stated many times the Colts would not draft a QB, however I was not wrong as I have just heard from credible sources that Ballard lost a bet. 

 

Its all clear now. :thmup:

I have made fun of and bashed anyone who said otherwise ( @Chloe6124 sorry neighbor ).  But you gotta admit it was kinda funny at times. 

 

Anyway. I am hear to take my lumps. 

 

To all here 

 

I WAS WRONG!!!!

 

Bash away. I deserve it and there will be absolutely no rebuttal.

 

 

And I just want to add.   Chris Ballard is a damn good poker player

 

Have at it   Don't pull punches.    

 

 

 

I think a dunce cap would be appropriate.

I was sure Eason's physical talent would get him drafted no later than second and even possibly end of round one.

Thrilled to get him in fourth. Is he the future? No one knows. But you can't win if you don't play!

I’m somewhat surprised, the Colts drafted a QB and two WR. 
 

I doubt Patmon makes the 53, but you never know. 

 

Even if we keep Fountain , it's possible we keep 6. I think he's a cinch to earn a roster spot.

Naa... we're going to give you a pass. About the only draft pick I've had right in the last 3 years is Q and that was a no-brainer.

In fact I think @Chloe6124 should get to pick my signature for the offseason

 

You should buy @Chloe6124 a steak dinner from St Elmo, she would like that more. She got me once when I told her Andrew Luck would be fine not to worry and she was worried about it, Andrew retired so she got me there haha. Andrew fooled most of us though so I don't feel too bad about that prediction I made :thmup:

I’m pleased with how it played out.  Pittman will be an integral part of this Rivers directed offense and to pick up another QUALITY. BIG WR in the 6th is a plus.  Taylor has the ability to be a top 5 back in this league and season could not have a better mentor for 1-2 years than Rivers.  If he listens, works and learns, he COULD be a homer run.  
 

Ballard did Ballard again and I like it.

I think Rivers is going to be good with our Line and the weapons we have now. I just hope our defense improves stopping the pass.

I posted this the day before day 2:

Why the hell would we draft a RB? This makes no sense. 

 

Then I posted this in my predictions for day 2:

if I had to guess... we keep 34(best WR on our board) and make a small trade back from 44 to the late 40s-early 50s and we pick either a CB or an EDGE...

So yeah... this was a spectacular crow eating worthy prediction from me - first we didn't trade back - we traded up, second we did trade up for a RB, and third we didn't take CB or and EDGE until the very end of R6(Isaiah Rodgers).

This draft went exactly as I predicted. In fact, all my picks were taken...just not by the colts nor in the order I expected lol. 
 

I never expected a RB, let alone in the 2nd but that value. Wow

 

i never expected a QB although, in the 4th, I think it was very good value. 
 

I absolutely did not see GB as the team taking Love, or any QB in the first 4-5 rounds. Astonishing

And 48 active (dressed) instead of 46.

What is the advantage in allowing 2 more guys play and having 2 guys coming from the PS? I wished they would just allow all them to dress and play. All 53 or 55.

I was correct on Pittman (said we'd take him or Claypool), Pinter (my last mock), and taking a 2nd WR late. I was way wrong on a RB that early, and not taking a TE or OT at all when several good ones were available mid rounds. Oh well. Wonder how Kiper did lol.

    • Watson started this recent public trade thing by stating that the organization has flawed hiring practices.  And I think he never debunked the idea that the current owner was a lot like his father, simply because he is his son.   Its not really about the next season or even the team's won loss record over the next three years.  Its bigger than that.  I think it would be smarter to not accommodate whiners, and in a legal manner, not set the precedent of accommodating someone who conducts detrimental actions that undermines the new coach and the authority structure of the organization.   If you accommodate Watson, you set the precedent that all whiners need to be accommodated or else you end up singling some out for disparate treatment.  This shows what a cancer players like Watson are to an entire organization.    And, I would think a player like that has limited trade value, despite the rumors.  I would  simply move on from him....forget he even exists...would be the less time consuming and smarter move.  If he wants to sit out, fine, but I'm drafting this spring with the idea that he's going to try to put me at a disadvantage and wait until after FA and the draft before he tells me he wont play next year.   There is some root of the problem that has yet to be revealed.   If its about making bad personnel decisions, resulting in a losing record, I get that....but the HC, OBrien who was responsible for those moves was fired months ago.  Seems like Watson and Watt are still holding some kind of grudge over something, or simply launching their marketing brand by grandstanding.   If I were the GM, I'd just ignore Watson until he apologized for those statements instead of honoring his wishes, and then if the team struggles, show to the whole world what people like that can do to a team, blame the teams failure's over a whiner sitting out the season too arrogant and stubborn to apologize for something he should not have said in the first place.       
    • The 2006 team was the greatest and it is not even a debate. They went 10-0 at home including the playoffs, 16-4 overall, and most importantly won the SB = they finished. The 2005 team during the regular season beat teams by a wider margin but lost in the divisional round. That team did not have Adam Vinatieri either, the 2006 team did. In 2006 we seen the best of Bob Sanders in the playoffs and we went through Ray Lewis/Ed Reed/Steve McNair at Baltimore, and beat Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in the AFC Title Game. Also in respect to the 2009 team, that team didn't have Vinatieri either, nor did it have Marvin Harrison or Bob Sanders, Dungy wasn't the Coach as well. It is 2006 hands down.
    • Probably 2005, that  team was loaded and then played a tragically bad game to the sixth seeded Steelers in the playoffs.    
    • In addition to some of the examples from @stitches:   - Was your offense restricted last season by having a less mobile QB? If so, in what ways? - Your offense was bottom third in play action attempts last season. Can you talk about how play action fits in your offense, and how it might be affected by the physical ability of the QB? - Your defense had some really good stretches, but was less effective against good QBing. (Example, short clock but long TD drives against the Bills/Packers, etc.) What will it take for the defense to take another step forward this season? - What will be Press Taylor's role on the staff? Will that differ from his role in Philly? - You went from a RB coach with decades of experience, to one who hasn't played or directly coached RBs so far. What went into that decision and what kind of impact might it have on the RB group? - At what positions do you think you most need improved playmaking? - How do you think the limited college season, no Combine, and restricted travel might impact prospect evaluation? - To what extent, if any, do you think being the primary play caller impacts your game management and decision making? - Do you still have weekly protection meetings like you did in 2018? How might those be impacted by the changes on the coaching staff?   Just saying, there's a lot of meat out there. Don't have to keep gnawing at the same bone.   Imagine this group trying to cover Gregg Popovich...
