He was very good.   But he was also late on the deep pass to Scantling on the last drive of regulation.   You can’t be caught out of place like that.   Almost cost the Colts the game.

 

But yes, on balance he was very good today.  And he WILL get some DROY love.

What a steal

I’m still laughing at all the pundents  that said the Colts reached for him. All he does is make plays every Sunday and he made a huge place to save the game tonight

Or all the would be GMs here who said the samething.

Off topic Ballard has made our special teams .....special 

A lot of credit to the coach too who missed today’s game.  While all the attention goes to Frank changing the oline coach after his first season he did the same thing with the special teams coach.

Doubt Frank is truly the one making these calls.

You know what I'm gonna comment again and say just how amazing our rookies did today. Blackmon with the game winning forced fumble. Jordan Glasgow with the FF on special teams. Pittman and Taylor both played really well on offense and Goggles of course making the game winner. 

And there was even a Rob Windsor sighting!

You doubt the head coach is the one making the calls on if someone on his staffed is fired?

I think Ballard has a great deal o say in these matters. He worked with one of the best ST coaches very closely (Toub). There is a lot of input from the front office, scouts included. Frank may make the final decision but not without a lot of input from a lot of people thru Ballard.

Then no one should ever blame Frank again for the oline coach being fired again.  It works both ways.

Agree. Have a feeling that the OL coach got under a lot of peoples skin. It certainly wasn't the first job he was fired from and I don't think they all came from bad coaching, From what I have been told he was a real *.

He's a stud that's for sure.  If Blackmon, Pittman and Taylor can make solid improvement next year it's looking like a solid draft class.  Still plenty of games left also this season to see improvement.  

Don't forget we got Buckner with our 1st round pick as well. He wasn't technically "drafted" but we got him with our 1st round pick, so it's still a positive towards the class. Rodgers and Glasgow have contributed, and we don't know what we have from Eason yet. Overall, good results in the short-term with a lot of potential in the long-term. :)

Glasgow was in on the tackle, but it was actually Cassius Marsh who punched it out (who actually played a surpising amount today too I might add). None the less.

 

The special thing is with Blackmon, alot of people can look at certain plays made and say 'he got lucky', as well as some of the plays Leonard makes as well. But the bottom line is, big time players, make big time plays. "Luck" seems to follow certain guys around more then others. Some guys have a nose for the ball and seem to be involved in everything. I love our safety combo.

Replay of JB knocking that screen pass loose for a forced fumble. I also love how much motor Buckner has - that hulking beast was Johnny on the Spot to get the fumble recovery. Oh, and he (Buckner) played nearly 92% of D snaps along with quite a few ST snaps.

If you watch the replay closely it looks as Blackman was blocked in the back and shoved into the ball carrier which makes it even more amazing.

That can’t be right because surly the officials would have thrown a flag he said sarcastically

Can we still use the 5th year option on him though and still trade him away for a pick 

No

Buckner is a freaking monster. Would not have wanted to be that tiny WR trying to get that ball back from Buckner.

Blackmon literally had no training camp or preseason and was coming off an ACL injury in which he suffered last December. He only missed the first 2-3 games of the season and was able to step in right away and contribute in a big way. Unbelievable.

He’s playing with a chip and I like it

No. And he’s wasnt gonna be worth much to trade either. Plus you can’t trade a player on IR. Oh and the trade deadline has passed.

I think it might come down to who has the final better record, the Colts or Ravens.  Reason being is that Patrick Queen is his chief competition.  Since the positions don't directly compare, and the Raven's D by media default is more respected than ours historically, I would be concerned if they finish with a better record and/or playoff seeding, especially since we already lost to them at home.  But I hope you're right.  He's been fantastic and perhaps may get votes for All Pro.

With the way the Ravens have been sliding the last few weeks since that loss, I’m not all that concerned with them. Two very bad calls broke that game open for the ravens against us. I think if we were to meet again, I think it’d be more like the Greenbay game as far as the final tally

    • Here is my most updated version...   Ballard trades 21st overall pick to NO for their 28th overall, and late 2nd round pick. (They make a move up for Mac Jones or Trask in this scenario.)    Round 1 Pick 28 (N.O.): Jaycee Horn, CB, South Carolina - I would love to get Horn as our future #1 corner on this team. He has some Gilmore to his game and is a big physical corner which Ballard will love. Corner is such a big need longterm as Rhodes is up in age and Rock is no sure thing to stick with the team for the long haul.  Round 2 Pick 22: Jalen Mayfield, OT, Michigan - Mayfield has the athleticism to play both RT and LT. He hopefully would be capable of challenging to start immediately at LT, and having Big Q next to him will help him out along the way. Round 2 Pick 28 (N.O.): Joseph Ossai, DE/OLB, Texas - A very good overall DE here, in the mold of a Justin Houston. He is great at setting the edge, along with getting pressure as well. He may never be a dominant pass rusher, but playing alongside Buckner will help him get his double digit sacks. Round 4 Pick 22: Alim McNeill, DT, North Carolina State - Yes we already have Grover Stewart at NT, but having another great player to rotate in with both Buckner and him would be beneficial. And forget about teams running on them in goal line situations with Stewart, McNeill, and Buckner all on the field.    Round 5 Pick 21: Amari Rodgers, WR, Clemson - Ballard always seems to draft at least one Senior Bowl player, and I have a feeling Rodgers could be one of those guys. He is sneaky in finding ways to get open and find holes in the defense. He would make for a good slot WR if Campbell can't stay healthy.   Round 6 Pick 21: Marlon Williams, WR, Central Florida  - This guy reminds me of a poor man's AJ Brown. He has the size and after the catch ability to be a threat in the passing game. Round 7 Pick 21: Robert Hainsey, OT/OG, Notre Dame - Simply a depth pick here who can play both G and RT if desperate.  
    • He went roughly 4-6 weeks without speaking with his head coach.   Wentz doesn’t appear to connect all that well with fellow teammates.  He’s a little shy, quiet and maybe reserved.   Yes, if he plays great, the rest will matter less, but it will still matter.    Because QB is the most important position on any team,  leadership is a natural part of the job description.  It comes with the job.  Hopefully the exceptional culture on the team will help bring out the best in Wentz in and off the field.... 
    • Hasn't really accomplished anything to be deserving of a # he wants. Need to show me the money!
    • So Smith wants to play, and he wants a chance to win. So he should sign with a team where his best chance of playing is if the team benches their starter at the end of the season because they're not going to make the playoffs... ???   I'd love to have Alex Smith as our backup, but I don't think this is even close to the kind of situation he'll be looking for. I think San Francisco, potentially Houston, the Jets, Dolphins, Broncos, Bears, all offer better opportunities for Smith to start. And there are a ton of teams that have legitimate playoff aspirations in 2021, including teams from that list.    If he wants to be a legitimate veteran backup on a good team, knowing that the better the team does, the less likely it is that he'll actually see the field, the Colts would be a great fit. But I don't think that's what he wants.   And that's before we even talk about the money.
    • Right now, those three cost ~$13M/year. After this, they will cost 4x that amount.   They deserve it...and will get it...but the cap situation is going to get very complicated with a QB under contract as well (if Wentz pans out). I don't envy Ballard and Bluem here.   Me personally...I would be very interested in at least finding out what type of premium draft capital I might be able to get for one of those players. Not saying I am looking to trade them at all...but there's more than one way to play it going forward and Ballard will explore options. It is just very difficult to outspend every team on the OL and carry a top 10 QB salary (if Wentz plays well enough to get extended) for an extended period.
