Colts-Packers, Week 11: Who's Got Questions For This Week's Colts Mailbag?


Recommended Posts

Will this be a game where the Colts decide to run heavily against the Packers' weaker run D to keep Rodgers on the sidelines more often like they did against Mahomes and the Chiefs in 2019? Do we plan to use more fullbacks to accomplish the same?

There were a couple of games where Rigo had touchbacks on punts.
  It got me wondering why teams aren’t “coffin kicking” as much as they used to.

 Is it because they think they could get a muff, or is it a matter of it being difficult to do.

   Ray Guy was a master at it.

Big matchup in Indy on Sunday between the AFC South-leading Colts (6-3) and the NFC North-leading Packers (7-2).


Who's got questions leading into the matchup? Submit them here for this week's Colts Mailbag.

What affect has the coaching change at the OL position has on our OL scheme wise?

Understanding that the results against the rest of the NFC North this year haven't been just wins, but dominations, what say they make it a perfect 4 for 4 and crush the Pack? So tell us, Andrew, what you got? Do they win this one? And do they do so in dominant fashion to completely own the NFC North this year? What's your score prediction?

@AWalkerColts did you actually answer this question before the game in the Mailbag? I just saw it with your score being a GW kick by Blankenship (37 instead of 39) to win 34-31

I think the last time we beat you all was 2008.

Not gonna put either of us in the SB prematurely, but if that were the matchup, history wouldn't matter. A-Aron has the experience, and its often surprising how much of an affect that seems to make. And he's one of the greats. For us, at least Frank Reich's been there.

You guys have a better chance of going to the SB than us. I think we will choke in the first round.

I think the AFC gauntlet is a little tougher this year with the Chiefs, Ravens, Steelers and Titans.  Not sure that whoever comes out the NFC east, Saints, Bucs or Seahawks could stack as well.  At the very least, the Pack is more of a frontrunner amongst those teams than the Colts is in the AFC.

    • I mean... everybody says that and right now maybe we are the best option for him, but would that be the same in 2 years time? Who knows...    About the pick compensation - yes, I would really hope Ballard doesn't go into a bidding war with other teams. Have a firm price set and don't go over it. 1st and 3d is about the max I would be willing to give for 33 year old Stafford. 
    • Stafford has been very public about his number one goal:   Winning.   (His words, not mine).   He’s not going to want to leave because we want to pay him $25m instead of $30+ million.   The Colts give Stafford the best chance of winning.   Period.  Leaving the Colts for a money grab would be the worst look possible for him.  I don’t see that as a worry.  Honestly.    My bigger concern is the cost in draft picks to acquire him.  There may be a bidding war, which could prove very expensive.   At some point, I could see Ballard dropping out.   We will likely know in the next 6 weeks. 
    • He is 33 and has 2 years left on reasonable contract. After that you will have to give him a contract in the realm of what other top QBs are getting now and he will be getting older... So you will either have to pay big or lose him and this is while all our young pieces are moving out of their rookie contracts... So we will start losing some of them. So IMO IF we get Stafford this will be the golden window to try to go all in...  Use Stafford's best remaining years at the best contract you will have him at, to try to surround him with best talent we can get while our young player are still cheap. Later he will be older/worse on worse contract and our young studs we either be paid much more (less money to get reinforcement elsewhere) or will be gone.    So... Go all in NOW. This doesn't mean you concede the later years, but IMO the best chance we have are the next 2 years if we get Stafford. This is legitimate Superbowl contender if we can get one of the top receivers, a very good pass-rusher and some solid CBs. 
    • Odds are you can’t do all that because the salary cap is going down roughly $15-20 million.    We’re likely going to need more time.   I don’t understand the 2-year window reference?   Stafford likely has 5+ years left.   With a GM like Ballard, our window should remain open longer than that.
