And the fact that we still got Johnathan Taylor as well is fn ignorant. This is such a fantastic mix of speed and power. We’re gunna make people pay when they step into the box this year

So by my count that's 6 known starters and a few pretty good reserves.  Not too shabby.  I know guys like Colin Cowherd, who I'm not all that fond of quite frankly, love Ballard.

In before the people that say the extra players don’t count bc there were other trades. Ballard has built quality depth and 3 star players.  Add a couple more blue chip players(May have one in Taylor) and the QB position and we could be back to owning the division again.

Those 3 Ballard picks produced 9 times as many players as Grigsons first 4 complete drafts (30 picks total plus the Richardson trade) From 2012-2015 only TY is left on the team.

Makes you appreciate Ballard so much more.

Get ready for Ballard to trade out of first round next year. Ballard needs that extra 2nd round pick so i assume they trade it next year to pick up more 2nds

Ballard likes the top of the 1st round, but the minute there are no more blue chippers, he wants out.

I was shocked and a bit mad we chose an RB in the second round but when you look at his body of work including the 3 times he gouged Indiana he is a beast and arguably the best RB in this draft and we got him at 41

Irsay got it right this time. I am glad Ballard is our GM, he always has a plan. Winning the Super Bowl isnt easy.. finding a great QB isnt easy.. the games are pretty much always 50:50 with good teams these days and anything can happen. One bad break and it's over. It goes both ways. So I think we as fans need to put things in perspective sometimes. 

 

Nobody is perfect and mistake-free, especially not in the NFL. But the way Ballard runs the show in Indy, is everything you can ask for as a fan IMO!

He sure seems to be a master at moving down and up in the draft. 

Most everyone thought they had him figured out after last years draft on what he would and wouldn't do. 

He sure proved that wrong this off season. 

The only thing we have leaned about Ballard is he is unpredictable.  (and very good at his job)

Weird when you look back on how he started. He had some impressive picks --- Marlon mack, walker, grover Stewart. But he also had BIG missed--- zach banner, basham.

But he is on one truly impressive hot streak. As a fan, this is cake.

    • Just maybe if you were in the very high risk category you might have a different opinion?  Without getting into my medicals I fall into the most at risk category. I also have a 89 year old mother in law living in my house. Put yourself  in those shoes and maybe you wouldn't think it is a joking matter?     
    • I don’t think it will be a lot of them opting out. But I could see a few. The nfl is taking a lot of precautions. Players won’t even be able to be in the facility with a cough or sneeze without a couple negative tests.  I think we will see positive tests with the initial screening but hopefully players will be smart off the field and after those initial tests there won’t be many. I read the eagles are going to be testing all coaches and quarantining then until they are all tested. They are even testing their family members that live in the house with them.    Sone of the stuff like no jersey swaps is dumb. If those players are all tested and cleared before games they should be able to have jersey swaps. Players are laughing at this silly rule.   The nfl is allowing teams to have 2 fan events with players in the preseason as long as protocols are followed. No fans at training camp.   With revenue sharing its probably good to let fans in some stadiums if local governments say its ok. Even if all can’t. That helps with revenue. If stadium workers and fans wear masks they can have 15 to 20 thousand pretty easily socially distancing.    What will be interesting if there is a vaccine by the end of the year or January maybe playoffs can go back to full stadiums. 
    • Adams house is in a part of Carmel that has had problems with the Lucas Estate (also in carmel).  The Lucas hold a lot of events for pay.  It's like a full on event venue.   He's remonstrated against it as have a lot of his neighbors. He said they cannot sit outside without having to deal with whatever music the event plays.   The city has tried to get the Lucas to stop running a business in a residential area but, they keep doing it.   I'm not surprised he is moving to Zionsville.  He can afford it and it is adorable
    • You had to get serious, didn't you?  No harm.   For what it is worth, neither what you have been told nor what I have been told, due to lack of consistency, is going to factor into the NFL plans. They will have their own set of doctors that they trust to make their decisions based on and we just sit back and watch, I guess, if there is football.   Otherwise, no masks necessary changed to masks needed, Ibuprofen not working to Ibuprofen is OK, transmission through air is highly possible to maybe possible, 3 feet to 6 feet of distancing but 12 feet necessary if the person is sweating and running in front of you, surface transmission is highly likely to less likely, the evolving information for an evolving virus is endless and you will go crazy trying to settle on certainty about symptoms and precautions.   The only certainty is that there is a virus and people have died w.r.t Covid-19, enough to get our attention. Keep your immune system supported and do the best you can on that front.
