Colts Announce Team Captains For 2020 Season (merge)


Recommended Posts

Sounds about right. Rivers is offense captain and Leonard is defense captain...TY is vet captain of WR room (with several younger WRs) and Houston is vet DL captain (another group with a several young players)...and Franklin is ST captain.

@EastStreet nailed it in the captains predictions thread. Grats East!

 

 

Thanks my friend. 

 

Call me Nostradumbaz 

:goodluck:

 

I was confident about all but Franklin, but figured he was the most impacting vet with AV gone.

I think with Zaire getting named, it pretty much seals that he will be on the team all year. 

Yup. Pretty sure I called either Glasgow or Adams the odd man out for the 53. Still surprised they all made it. I think one of them is probably the first to go (likely back to PS) when we bring some guys back.

I would think so, as long as Glasgow looks good on ST I think hed stay over Adams.

IDK. Adams does pretty well on ST. He was top 3 in STs snaps last year, and looked good in camp. 

 

Purely my opinion, but both Franklin and Adams COULD play LB if needed, and both are also good on STs. Glasgow on the other hand would scare the heck out of me playing LB.

 

It's not really a big deal though. We don't need to carry 7 LBs, and really don't even need 6. If they can fit them simply for STs, not a big deal. It's just really strange because we only have two LBs on the field the majority of time, using SAM only about 20ish %. Hoping that might change this year though, and possibly see more man D if guys like Rhodes look good, and Rock takes another step.

I truly never noticed him on ST. Outside of Gunners I usually miss them. But i agree for LB much more Adams. But we have more than that. It will be curious this first week to see which LBs dont dress

I just took a look at snaps for STs. The top 3 in snaps were Franklin 82%, Odum 80%, and Adams 72%.

    • You're discounting Mike Petersen, who left for a big contract....Marcus Washington, who was a darn near pro-bowler with the Redskins...David Macklin was a decent zone corner....   Burlsworth was killed before pre season, but was thought of as a steal (but we won't count him.   Outside of round 3. McKinney was the first pick of the 4th round....the third day of the draft and was traded up to get.  He started immediately and left for a big contract via FA.  Ryan Ziem was a 4th rounder who has played as well as Smith, our second rounder and I believe earned two new contracts.   To me, you list shows that Polian had about 9 good players out of 12 picks.   Got a great G and RT in round 4....which is where you draft Gs and RTs.
    • Sweat was not an option for the Colts.  Not almost every other team in the NFL.   He had a heart condition.  That’s why a top-10 pick fell to pick 26.   Typically the owner and team doctor decides on guys like that, not the general manager.   Almost every team bypassed Sweat.  Because he wasn’t on the boards for most every team.   
    • Passing on Sweat made little sense...and I don't think Ballard gets a pass. Could you imagine if he had picked Sweat...people here wouldn't shut up about how great he was for picking Sweat.   But he didn't pick Sweat. IF Sweat was off the board because of some misleading health info...then Ballard had bad info. Also...Ballard drafted Hooker at #13 (missed the Combine and had surgeries for a torn labrum in his hip and a sports hernia); Turay (missed half of his games in his sophomore and junior seasons); and Blackmon (was recovering from an ACL tear in December). Ballard has not shown himself to be averse to taking health risks in the draft...even as early Day 1 or Day 2...so I am not buying that.    And IF Sweat was down their board...then it was poor evaluation.
