Hopefully the monesters will excel in the passing game also.

To my knowledge and to the best of my memory, the Colts have NEVER had a backfield with this kind of talent and potential.  We've been a pass first type of offense for so many years and now with Mack and Taylor, we can run the damn ball on anyone and everyone, then we the opponent keys on the run game, we'll use the pass to  game to it's fullest advantage, because we have a proven QB and an upgraded receiving corps to move the ball through the air, too.

 

I'm really excited to see these two guys put up some big numbers this season!

I’m probably in the minority, but I prefer a dominant run game versus passing game.

 

Nothing more demoralizing to a defense that can’t stop the run game.

 

I’m excited with our RB situation.

Marshall Faulk and Zack Crockett

Edgerin James and Dominic Rhodes

Joseph Addai and Dominic Rhodes

 

Those are the best combos I can remember the Colts having at RB.  Mack is in Addai skill range but hasn't done enough for his name to be mentioned with Faulk or Edge.  Taylor has yet to play a down.  I hope they are the best duo the Colts have ever had, but not yet

Usually one is strong and the other fast but Mack and Taylor are both really fast. Defenses won’t get a break to have 2 guys that dangerous who aren’t tired in the 4th quarter.

Not to mention a true FB in Nix, Ballard is truly aiming for the top rushing attack next year, its gonna be damn hard for defenses to account for everyone

Curtis Dickey and Randy McMillan.   The Colts weren't any good back then but they had a pretty nice RB tandem for a few seasons.

Don't forget Hines.   I'm thinking he will be catching lots of passes from Rivers.

I just like the idea that if you can't beat them with one, you beat them with the other.  I can only say I prefer whichever one is moving the chains.  

 

Plus a strong run game is a huge component in running down the clock.  

 

I am skeptical of Taylor as a player because it always seem like Wisconsin backs never live up to their billing, but I hope he does.

 When Colin is Right!
 Maybe our backfield was a solid B last season.
 With the addition of a true FB and Taylor, maybe we are an A+ now.

I remember Alan Ameche and Lenny Moore.  They were awesome.  FB/HB era.

Colin started here in the Portland market. Always liked him. He studies, he uses sound logic most of the time,. I don't agree with him always, but he is not an empty head trying to stir controversy.

This has to be one of the best RB rooms in the NFL.  We’ll probably end up cutting Williams or Wilkins and they’ll end up being at least a #2 somewhere else.  
 

Hey, I just looked and Williams isn’t on the roster.  Was he let go?

I like that he's a Colts fan, but I cannot stomach him for more than a few minutes.  He comes across as too egotistical and talks in absolutes and thinks he is correct on everything.  I take a pass on Cowherd.

LOL!  I do remember those two.  Nottingham was from nearby where I grew up, and went to Kent State.  He was the 'Human Bowling Bowl'. 

 

Both of those guys were decent RBs (more like FBs) for a short time.

We just better pray there’s no regression on the line that’s extreme.

I would take him over guys like Skip Bayless or Max Kellerman any day.

It was a bad movie.   I remember watching it as a little kid when my big brothers watched it.  

I also remember sneaking behind the couch and watching Benny Hill as well.  :thmup:

    • I didn’t say you did.  I said they were.   Marvin is fifth in career catches and Wayne is 10th.  Bruce is 13th and Holt doesn’t make the top 13.   Holt is 16th in career yards and 36th in TDs.     So Harrison tops Bruce in catches and TDs while Bruce has the edge in yards.  I think TDs and catches are much more important than yards. Wayne tops Holt in everything and tops Bruce in catches.     As a duo give me Harrison and Wayne.   Moss and Carter is another good duo although it was short lived and the Steelers had Stallworth and Swann.  Those are the best sets I can come up with.     The Steelers have been good at producing stud WRs as a franchise but I am not sure I would take them over Harrison and Berry who are probably two of the top 10 WRs to ever play the game and Wayne who is also probably going to end up a Hall of Famer.  
    • Where did I say they were?  Harrison and Wayne were 9th and 10th in career yards while Bruce was 5th. Harrison was 5th in TDs while Wayne was 24th. Bruce was 12th.  So it's debatable.   
    • Wayne and Harrison were just as good.
    • The St. Louis Rams had a couple of great WRs with Holt 1999-2008 and Bruce 1994-2007. Kind of hard to beat those two at the same time. Add Faulk 1999-2005 as he was maybe the best RB receiver in history. 
    • I love what Ballard has done with the roster, but honestly could care less about rankings.  Give me Ws...   Sorry man, couldn't help myself!
